I have no dog in this fight but can certainly appreciate what you guys are seeing down there. On the news just the other day they said that the Hispanic population in California is something like 49% of the total. That surprised the hell out of me.

same thing at the BofA in SFV so now i will not bank there not one thing in English
If you've ever been in the SF Bay Area, the bank machines have about 5 to 8 Languages on them, NO JOKE, and english isn't number 1.

Well not that "local", but it was in the "greater" Sacramento area.

Looks like our government is going to let them walk in and take over. Just like they are allowing other countries to buy ours. I think we're doomed and it may be in 2012.........

The funny thing is, Why did Wendy's need to put the sign in Spanish? Fast Food Menus ALL have two things, pictures & numbers, both universal. Is Wendy's implying that California Mexicans aren't smart enough to drive up and say "number 3 please", or did they just NEED to make sure EVERYONE knew they could spend an extra $0.59 on a Large Combo?

Yep this is true, the Hispanic population is the Majority in California. I TRULY believe that diversity is among the top things that make this country great, but it is still perplexing how backwards CA will bend to accommodate immigrants. When you think about it logically it's just a big waste of time anyways, because the "Melting Pot" will prevail. Do you really think the Hispanic Youth of CA want to listen to mariachi and hang out in front of the Home Depot? The Mexicans I grew up with listen to more Tesla & Rush than I do.... by far!!!

Well, we all know the problem and I agree that it is B.S. How do we fix the problem? I for one would like to see something change on this subject.

That's a good call. Mainly because their food is poisonous, but soon you will have to be able to speak a foreign language to order food there anyway.
