“Why is it that only Hispanics have a hard time learning English? I don’t hear; ‘press 3 to continue in Japanese,’ ‘press 4 to continue in Chinese,’ or ‘press 5 to continue in Hindu.’ The immigrants of these countries don’t seem to have a hard time learning English. I see the children of these immigrants winning spelling bee contests all over America. English is much closer, language-wise, to Spanish than it is to these other languages.”

“Why do I have to be visually attacked by these people waving signs on street corners. Some of them are even dressed in cheap costumes. How ridiculous. Surely there must be some city ordinance forbidding this type of advertising. Enough already!”

“People complaining about fireworks, loud music, barking dogs, etc., but nothing is more annoying than eating in a restaurant with ill-mannered people having no consideration for others by letting their kids run around screaming or gabbing on their cellphones so loud for everyone to hear.”

“Beware all you elected candidates, we the people are watching and listening! You will bring back our core values and rule by the Constitution or there will be more change. We the people rule America. Remember, you work for us.”
