Language barrier

Tax Paying Hispanic - I don't seriously expect anyone - Hispanic, American, Taiwanese, German, whatever - to hire a 24-hr interpreter. My comments were intended to imply heavy sarcasm, which I attempted to point out by turning around the original poster's statement that they knew lots of people who had 'tried and tried' to learn English but just couldn't because it was too difficult. I understood that to mean that the poster felt native residents should make more effort to learn Spanish because many in the Hispanic community found English too tough to learn - and I found that to be a terribly hypocritical stance. And while I appreciate your thanking me in five languages (four of which I would have known even without your ID'ing them), I don't appreciate your assumptions that I have stereotyped anyone. That makes you no less guilty than those you've accuse.
