¿Qué? Vete a la mierda, wedo

There’s no telling how much money the government could save if it were to stop asking Americans to “Press 2 for Spanish.”

What is clear, according to those pushing the change, is that President Trump could do it with the stroke of a pen. Why he hasn’t done so remains shrouded.

Since the dawn of the 21st century, the U.S. government has operated under mandatory translation rules for its documents and services, a pricey option that President Bill Clinton imposed via executive order near the end of his tenure in August 2000.

    End it orange man! I’m not holding my breath. More and more he’s becoming a let down. Maybe if we got cankles in office the festivities would be in full swing? Still orange man has a dismal record on guns, the wall, illegals and legal immigration. Just to name a few of his promises.

    On the road again

    I wonder if Pedro can understand what is said when he presses 2 for Spanish because I usually have a hard time understanding when I press 1 for English.

    California prints everything in 17 languages. The state will provide state-funded interpreters if a parson prefers a different language. Also included is voter registration. For casting a vote the interpreter (state-funded) is right there at the booth with the voter. What possibly could go wrong?

    My healthcare provider (Healthnet) sends me correspondence in all the 17 languages even though they know I speak English. Stupid waste of resources and I agree it needs to end, along with everything else implemented by Clit-on.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
