Jerry Harris: Interpreters make him mad

I don’t understand what is happening in this country. I thought the goal to come to the United States of America was to become American. Now we need interpreters for every country for any event – in courtrooms, doctor visits and on any occasion where English is not understood. Who is paying for these thousands of interpreters? You think it’s the government? But who is the government, but you and me?

Do I sound angry? I am. Why are we trying to cater to the world? Our politicians only care about lining their pockets so they can have another term in office. How did this happen? We don’t vote and politicians know this, so they continue to do as they want and to hell with you and me.

Jerry Harris, Modesto
