California_state_flag English as an Official Language

(Originally posted March 9, 2006) Can anyone explain why those in power cater to people that don’t speak English?  Why money is spent on printing any number of different documents in whatever language we can guilt the government into printing?  The government is not a private industry.  They make their money from non-production of goods
