Last few job interviews that I went on were in my own home town. We have very crooked politics here, and a long history of vanishing public records. I was told on all 4 interviews, that they (the potential employer) was very impressed with my resume, but that they felt that I was being distracted by courthouse documents that I had in my possession. If I could be persuaded to sign affidavits that these documents were false then perhaps they could find a place in their company for me. They also wanted me to turn over the original copies to be destroyed, otherwise I might find myself unemployed in all 50 states......Imagine that! Needless to say, the answer was "NO!" and a few other choice words, and we parted ways.

So, be glad if all the employer asks you to do is learn another language. It is a annoying, and I think ridiculous because ENGLISH is a much more complex language. It is the only language on Earth that is literally made up of all the other languages. ENGLISH is the "tongues." Count the letters.......7. E1, N2, G3, L4, I5, S6, H7. If you know all the English language then you will basically know all the languages including the ancient, and obsolete ones. No other language can claim that. The English Dictionary is volumesque. Our words are spoken in syllables, or we have multiple words used to describe a single object. ENGLISH is slurred foreign languages, mixed together in the most magnificent of ways. There is no language on Earth more interesting then ENGLISH, nor more complex. If you will study linguistics, not only will you enjoy English so much more, and learn a multitude of foreign words, but you will be amused or shocked at how much English words are constantly misused by the general population, and even public figures. It's funny, and yet scarey. The majority of our public figures are basically illiterate. If one of them misuses a word then they all tend to do it.

Why didn't you learn to speak Cherokee or Navajo?

I would love to myself but suck at languages. I learn many words in different languages but can never converse in them. for some reason I just don't retain the info and most people are just like me. We are now the USA and the primary language is english. Strange that it's only the spanish speakers who refuse to speak english. Why immigrate to a country if you can't learn that country's language? Why have an entire country bend over backwards to cater to you? Why force the citizens of this country to speak a foreign language in their own country just because of one group who refuses to adapt????

There are several other groups of people that speak thousands of different languages, not just Spanish.

Like I said, why didn't we just learn Cherokee and Navajo languages when we landed here?

Quite frankly, its all over with. Things are never going to be like they were again. The playing field has been switched, and most of us over 30 have no clue what to do about it. And we're surrounded by so many lies, exaggerations and half truths, nobody knows whats actually going on. By design of course..

Everyone is filled with anxiety, fear, frustration, prejudice and hatred. And these work places are packed with them. Like cattle in a mad farm. So even if you were able to speak Spanish..and reverse your age by 10'll still have to face this changing toxic financial landscape.

We all better start figuring out some new ways to earn a living. We better all start now before these sick corporations and toxic companies gain the legal right to brand our behinds with their logo's..
