have you ever noticed

that most of the people braying on about the U.S. as a monolingual "English-only" nation are really unbelievably bad at English?

All right, so the "Your in America now" post is by far the worst, and that WorldNet douche bag obviously has an acceptable grasp of grammar (though "like a giant mowing machine" betrays the ouvre of complete bereftness of nuance that comes from…oh, I don’t know, wilfully-ignorant monolingualism?), but you get my drift. I think if these fuckers spent half the time they spend hee-hawing about people who DARE speak other languages here actually studying another language, they’d realize that being multilingual makes you smarter, more interesting and much, much less likely to mistake "your" for "you’re."
