  • I wonder how many of these “spanish” speaking” home buyers” are illegal invaders from south of the border? Perhaps they can run over to B of A and get a home loan, using their mexican matricula consular cards.

    If they are in fact American citizens, why do they reject English?

    • Beloved Comrade

      Because they live in a state, and soon a country, where the lingua franca is not English.

      • The ‘country’ is a good insight.  Wait until they start cutting special deals with China.

    • If they are Spanish speakers in the sense that they have poor English skills then most of them must be illegal, I would assume.

    Just part of the agenda to merge the corrupt countries south of the border with the US and Canada.  We have become a nation, not of patriots, but one of people who would do anything to bring us to the same third world status as Mexico.

    • If we could take over Canada, that wouldn’t be so bad.  I’ve read in the past 10-15 years or so of a couple of movements within Canada that promoted at least a piecemeal breakup and union with the States.

  • Calif needs to shift its taxes onto property vs. income.
