    Another good reason to mandate bilingualism/multilingualism is then we can stop hearing stories about idiots getting butthurt at tourists/immigrants for not speaking English in the US.

    "Hurr durr in America we speak English", that's nice, Karen, and when I need to speak to you or anyone for work or business I do speak English, but I will speak whatever language I wish on my own time hanging out with family. If you can't understand two people speaking Greek, or Mexican, or Vietnamese or whatever, that's not their problem or your business.
