Have you noticed how the same old divisive legislative proposals invariably get new leases on life when a fresh batch of right-leaning politicos gets elected to Congress?
For example, it’s a safe bet that somewhere along the line, there’ll be a hue and cry to cut federal funding for public broadcasting.
It’s equally predictable there’ll be renewed zeal for so-called “English only” legislation designed to make English the official language of these United States. This one has legs and comes back to haunt political season after political season.
And, sure enough, it is upon us anew, thanks in part to the large cadre of Republican Tea Partiers who were elected to the U.S. House of Representatives last November.
Nor is congress the only legislative body that finds itself agitated by the drive to make us an “officially” English speaking people.
Last month, by a 102-55 margin, the Missouri House of Representative passed and sent to that state’s Senate a measure mandating that driver’s license tests be administered in English only in the Show Me state.
