Very True!
The next time you hear a politician use the word "billion" casually think about whether you do, or don't, want that politician spending your tax money!!
A billion seconds ago, it was 1959.
A billion minutes ago, Jesus was alive.
A billion hours ago, our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
And....
A billion dollars ago, was only 8 hours and 20 minutes at the rate Washington spends.

then you are a fail ''native american'' and a good sellout to promote an invaders language. hoht thaw koy. it is not ''our'' language its the lingo of the ones that murdered and imprisoned our children and now want to sweep that part of their history under the rug and for lack of a better term ''whitewash'' it. sounds like to me you are a white person not a native. probably about like most white peole with a sliver of indian blood such as the cherokee and 1/56 indian lol. no NDN i know would say total sellout shit like you just did. pretendian more like it. put down the chicken feather headdress and grow up. stop repping somthing you are obviously not. you dont speak for real indigenous people here saying crap like that
I am acutely aware of the native plight. I can't stand to look at Andrew Jackson on a $20 bill!

I am Cherokee with relatives in the Eastern and main Cherokee tribes.

The thing is, English is spoken as the common language in the US. Kiowa, Cherokee, Senaca...not. it is not a solid argument to keep 40 different languages in print and signage.
Tribes can speak what they want. US and states would save millions, maybe billions, in consolidating to the English language.

tell that bullshit to any indigenous person here as a european person you will get laughed out of town. you still crack me up with that shiit. YOU ARE THE ONES NOT SUPPOSED TO BE HERE jesus christ why wont you REDNECKS admit you are only here because your ancestors invaded murdered and then stole the original peoples homes? along with their kids and everything else?
Because you are a race of liars murderers rapists pedophiles and thieves thats why.
Indigenous peoples recognize the danger of allowing our borders to be open to anyone wanting to come in. They recognize the FACT that
CRIMINALS are crossing back in forth everyday and putting their families and communitites AT RISK because of the lack of closing our borders.

The FACT that Europeans came here we all know that and that HISTORY is just that HISTORY. U.S.A. has accomodated the claims and has paid to the indigenous people (5 civilized tribes and others)and continues to pay for special programs which aren't allowed for the decendents of the European's who came here first. Is it a perfect solution? The answer is NO but it is a solution which indigenous tribes reap the benefit of and out of each and every working person's paycheck.

Then Timmy, will you please point out where I said otherwise?

That is the impression your post left which would clearly be wrong.

Fair enough Timmy. I guess if that had been my point then I would have said was, is and always will be. That part never crossed my mind since the analogy was a relation of time in Billions.

Please learn English then complain.
The Europeans took the country from
native savages who in most cases were cannibals.
The original people failed to develope the wheel,
alcohol, the arch, iron, writing, and etc.
They got what they deserved.

Cannibals? Really? You don't know anything about American natives.
Most tribes had advanced forms of governance and I can't think of one cannibal tribe here.
They weren't savages. They were trying to keep what was theirs from invaders. Just like we would do in the same situation.

Damn you're stupid.

Why can't the state just print every form and signage in every known language? You never know who is in the state or what language they speak. They should print every language just to be ready.

Lmao, idiots. It sounds like a trivial thing but just another form of racism and economic discrimination. If this passes there will be little to no public services for those who don't speak English. Does that mean they don't have to pay taxes either? Probably not. Taxation without representation was the primary reason for the real tea party in Boston yet ironically most modern day tea baggers would support this.

The percentage of people who do not or cannot speak English is very low. They will not miss out on services.
The state is trying to do what the federal government is incompetent to do because of lobbyists.

Oklahoma would save millions and millions of dollars on printing and signage.

There is no compelling reason to provide for any contingency. To become a citizen you must show proficiency in speaking and reading English.

I would consider it racist to prohibit the state from making common sense decisions because of minority lobbyists.
