+2Everything I've said has been said before. Everything written...the same.... Nothing is original, anymore. Sometimes I despise the English language... What do you think is wrong?

+6I've made up my own language. Replace all L's with Y's and see how it sounds. LOL. Do you know another language?
+1If you can't speak their language properly, it's too bad French people take it as an insult. And BTW, Paris wasn't all that great. More

And, of course, let’s not forget how government would bribe people to tick the Mena box with the full array of benefits that come in the affirmative-action cornucopia.
