Turns out the dude has a bad bleeding ulcer. Out of the hospital. Strict diet man! No FLAMING HOT CHEETOS for you. Thanks for all your prayers and well wishes to him.
Hurricane season is really bad this year. Believe it when I tells ya that McCain and the VP bitch with glasses are up in the polls! UGH! Prepare your exile my friends, to the country where you will most live comfortably, because if McCain wins, we are in for it! If I could just up and leave, I think I'd consider moving to Canada, Australia, or Spain. God, I never even thought I'd be at a point in my life to wanna leave the United States, and I'm sure many Americans feel the exact same way right now. Obama is lately doing all kinds of extra stupid things, like recently admitting the troop surge in Iraq worked very well; he possibly may have also said he was Muslim in a slip of the tongue! Could Barack be in on the scheme to sabotage his own big chance and get old geezer McCain in office?! The next two months will be a serious waiting game. Get out your Pepto and Tums folks! LOLOL! Our economy is in terrible shape and has practically collapsed with a terrible unemployment rate and government bailouts of banks and mortgage companies. Who pays for all this? Yes. We do.
Unlike English, which rules the world with prestige as the language of technology and progress, Spanish is often seen (in the U.S. especially) as the language of poor uneducated illegal immigrants. It makes me cringe to think that this beautiful European tongue has such a bad reputation; we have plenty of low class trashy ghetto English speakers too right? Spanish obviously comes from Spain, not Mexico, and is a highly literary and prestigious language that was diffused throughout the planet when the Spaniards went on their greedy conquests back in the day. 10 authors from Spain and Spanish-speaking Latin America combined have won the Nobel Prize in Literature. I often hear so many negative comments or erroneous views on español, but this is because most Americans get poor information from school and the media on Hispanic culture. I hate to use the word racism, but it's true. It's there, and now perhaps more than ever due to the tremendous amount of immigration (legal and illegal) and the new generation of bilingual Latinos born in the U.S., including myself. Not to worry America, Spanish will not be taking over the United States and replacing English anytime soon or ever for that matter. English is powerful, and the new generation of Latinos will speak it and prefer it over Spanish. They assimilate quite nicely and eventually subsequent generations will not speak or forget Spanish altogether. I wish more people studied and learned Spanish not just for the advantages it may provide at the workplace, but because of what it is: an amazing language of high honor and tremendous historical significance; not just the language of María who cleans your toilet or Juan who mows your lawn.
Muchas gracias everybody! I can't wait to rack up at least 10 comments on this post alone!
