There is no official language in America. This administration may change that.

What languages are ALL the original founding documents, judicial decisions and legislative bills OFFICIALLY translated in?

In the computer age, why are children taught to read and write cursive?

It doesn't matter. Legally, there is no official language as prescribed in the Constitution. Therefore, when anyone who doesn't speak English needs help in a legal capacity, we're footing the bill.

You silly giggling girls can't comprehend the genius of writing the Constitution in a form basic enough to be read and understood by a grade school kid, yet comprehensive in protecting the right's of American citizens.

Please show me the latin in the constitution TB.... I'll be waiting.

In addition, please show me a judicial ruling written not just using common terminology that spans the languages, but one entirely composed of latin?

Can't? Didn't think so. You may go back to the thread of telling fart jokes now.

FArmer now that you've made an a$$ of yourself and Sky was kind enough to show you the latin in the Constitution, sit down and learn to read. I was referring simply to the mans comment about us having to pay for legal services for those that can't speak English (you might want to read his post again) but yes you're right t here are no complete judicial rulings written entirely in latin, however, latin phrases are very common in legal work. But you knew that already right??

And we pay those legal bills for non-latin speakers, too, in the form of public defender's. I was referring to Spanish translators being provided at the cost of the taxpayer. I've always wondered if Columbia or Guatamala or any other nonenglish country would do the same thing we do.

Sounds good but everyone will most likely meet in the medium as the honeymoon ends eventually. Set the bar high then negotiate for the best deal you can make. That is Trump's history and he won't change.
