At age 85 I was raised in an America in which one out of four people was an immigrant or the child of an immigrant. It was natural for us to speak another language other than English. So, I knew Yiddish which enabled me to talk with a German. During World War II, many American soldiers could speak Italian while fighting in Italy or German in German. This really helped. But, these days anyone who speaks in a language other than English or Spanish can get into trouble.

Of course, in fairness to Donald, a bimbo IS seeking the Democratic nomination.
There are moments when I believe we Americans have a rendevous with disaster.
I wonder what Ben Carson is doing these days–cutting up bodies?
