    Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Tuesday, November 3, 2015
    More than 350 languages are spoken at home in the U.S., the Census Bureau reported Tuesday, and residents in the country’s biggest cities are drifting away from speaking English at home.

    A staggering 54 percent of residents in the Los Angeles metropolitan region speak a language other than English at home, as does 38 percent of the New York City area, 37 percent of Houston, 51 percent of Miami, 40 percent of San Francisco, and 36 percent of Washington, D.C.


    • The data also underscores the stunning breadth of languages that are spoken at home, including dozens of Native American languages.

    “While most of the U.S. population speaks only English at home or a handful of other languages like Spanish or Vietnamese, the American Community Survey reveals the wide-ranging language diversity of the United States,” said Erik Vickstrom, a Census Bureau statistician.

    While Spanish-speakers the most dominant group, with some 37.5 million residents 5 years or older speaking Spanish in their homes, they also tend to learn English as well. More than 56 percent of those who speak Spanish at home also said they speak English “very well.”

    Asian-language speakers, by contrast, do not fare as well. The Census figures said just 40 percent of the 1.4 million residents who speak Vietnamese in their homes also speak English “very well,” and only 44.7 percent of the 2.9 million Chinese-speakers are also proficient in Englis

    What's wrong with having a nation that doesn't share a common language or culture?

    No one forces you to shove Trump down out throats but here you are doing it constantly like some obsessed nut case.
    If you love him so much, shove him down your own throat.
