    Two thoughts immediately come to mind...
    1. How does someone confuse Hebrew for Spanish? (They sound nothing alike!)
    2. Even if it was Spanish, so what?!

    So I guess the injuries sustained by the two men was because they walked into a door?

    Sounds like he was already angry (precharged). Do we think he was part of janesvilles assembly plant layoffs?

    Well in this case I think “speaking Spanish” is really code (from the person committing the crime) thinking that somehow that they were illegal aliens (or more generically “foreigners”). He is an idiot of course, but I think his motives are more anti hispanic than anything.

    Hey it’s a theory.

    I've had a man tell me to speak English while i was speaking to my sister in Chinese on a public bus 20 years ago. I was too young to say anything back to him and my sister didn't hear him. This was in Canada, supposed to be one of the most friendly and multi-cultural place in the world.

    I'm sure that guy would have no problem speaking English if he was in China. People are so backwards.

    Give this guy the chair. Complete waste of life and useless to society.

    When will the "real Americans" learn that America doesn't have an official language?

    I tell you, this country is going to hell on an express train, and there ain't a damn thing we can do to stop it. I was in traffic court the other day, and I swear to God there wasn't a single person there who could speak English. Everywhere you turned, it was all...

    "nolo contendere" "nolo contendere" "nolo contendere"

    ...from everyone. Black, white, or brown. Last time I checked, this was America, people! Not Mexico! QUIT SPEAKING ALL THAT SPANISH!

    I can imagine that donkey avatar of yours finishing off this spiel and then proceeding to throw his hat on the ground. This is followed up by jumping up and down on said hat yelling "Dang ole dag nabbit ruffin tarnation dad gummit..."

    What in the wide world of sports is going on in 'Murica these days.

    No. Wisdom Mule is knowledgeable, wise, and, most importantly, understanding.

    ...though even he can't provide a good answer to that question.

    I can understand the hat, but why is said mule also wearing boots and pants?

    And is that a Pringles potato chips can in the each pocket, or is said mule just glad to see the photographer?

    What else would you wear while tilling the fields in the hot summer sun? Wisdom Mule is a mule of the earth, and dresses accordingly.

    Bit of column A, bit of column B.

    Wisdom Mule may be knowledgeable, wise and understanding but he is not infallible. Like all fallible beings, he can be thrown into illogical actions by his emotions; ergo, when Wisdom Mule makes a statement such as... "Great scott, I believe my container of Pringles is exhausted... HEE HAW!". Anger could irrevocably follow.

    I have an idea this was more a case of 'displaced anger' .

    There has to be more to this story.

    I remember very well once when on vacation in the US, my then wife and I were talking in a small roadside cafe. My wife noticed that the other patrons were all looking at us, we stopped talking. A child (aged about 6) got up from another table, and walked over to us and said "would you talk funny again". My wife and I suddenly understood these people had never heard the 'DUTCH' language before. We tried to explain that not everybody in the world spoke English, she was not convinced.

    What kind of crap is that, "... how this forum rolls ..."? Are you trying to be ironic?
