English as the “official language” in the USA? WTF?!

Those who ignore history and doomed to repeat that history.

In this case, the repeat is more like deja vu all over again—The hydra-headed beast that is called the 2012 Republican candidates (I can’t seem to distinguish that group with the GOP moniker) is forcing the world around them to relive the sufferingly old debate about English as the official language in the USA>  This is like a rerun screening of a very bad film in a  dilapidated drive-in with the smoke-belching engine running and running.  This is a group that pretends to “know,” but in fact seem to know nothing about lessons from the past.

Perry supports English as official language in US
