English Being Considered As Offical Language Pa.?

PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – Daryl Metcalfe joined Mike Pintek in discussing the public hearing that will focus on making English the official language of the Commonwealth.

This seems like a no brainer that English should be the official language and some people are shocked it isn’t already.

Listen here for more on this legislation.

    My family & I spent over 30 years in the Pittsburgh area. As retirement approached my husband, daughter & I decided to move to New Mexico to enjoy the warmer weather. We had lived here for two years in the early 80’s. We live near the Albuquerque area and have considered moving back to PA. It doesn’t mattter where I am, it is rare to hear English spoken. It has gotten to the point where we feel we are living in a foreign country.

    Please make English the official language of Pennsylvania. If you don’t do this, it will slowly but surely become a place where you are an outsider .

    This country has been overrun with foreigners and illegals who have chosen purposely not to assimilate into this culture. My father came to this country from Italy; he told me that he HAD to learn in order to fit in as discrimination occurred because of the language one spoke if not English. Today, foreigners and illegals make little to no effort to assimilate and learn the language. The federal government makes laws that all signs have to be in Hispanic and telephone menus say to press 1 for English, 2 for Spanish, 3 for French, etc. Ridiculous. Kudos to Daryl Metcalf, glad he’s in office.

    Wait till Obama grants amnesty to all illegals and then forces you by law to learn Spanish cause he knows what’s good for you if you like it or not.

    ENGLISH should be the official language of the entire country. I can’t even believe that we have to discuss this. What is this country coming too.

      This government has been infiltrated by Progressives like Woodrow Wilson who created the Federal Reserve and the income tax. Progressives “know” what is best for the rest of us, so just do as I say. Well, Obama must be flummoxed since he lost the House and God-willing loses his job in 2012 and the Senate is controlled by those who believe in smaller government, strong national defense (Secure our borders now) and fiscal responsibility. Now that many Americans have awakened to the tragedy of what’s happened/happening in Washington, we need to be ever-vigilant about politics. We cannot afford to go to the polls and vote for the D or the R anymore. We must find out what these candidates/incombents stand for.

        And Harry Reid, Pelosi, Leahy, Brown, Frank… Obama and his clan of fools will be gone soon. I just hope we can make it another 14 months…
