Kim churchill

The Norwegian language Lutheran church that I attend in Minneapolis would be very upset with an English only law.


Dyna notes:

A couple interesting factoid talking points:

1) There was no formal federal immigration and citizenship process before 1890. Immigration and citizenship was handled by state and local governments. An immigrant could wander the country at will and "shop" around for a favorable unit of government if they wished to become a citizen.

2) In the Upper Peninsula of Michigan a health care plan provides interpreters for patients as needed. Most of the requests are for Finnish language interpreters!


BTW, I understand the lutheran church with the norwegian language services is a growing congregation.

No Michelle

How about her family farm not taking Federal farm subsidies??

She got $50,000 from profits from her family farm! Hey Michelle, how about your conservative family farm refusing Federal Farm aid and paying back all the the subsidy money it received or are you a socialist???????????????????????
