Of that 1 1/4 pages are in spanish, which leaves 72 3/4 pages of English only content. That's less than 2% of the magazine. I don't really call that a sell out. But as with so many other things in this world, discussing issues where facts get in the way of emotions is pointless. I am therefore done discussing this issue with you. If you chose to cancel your subscription because of less than 2% of the content, that is certainly your choice. You can email me at kupton@mrpllc.com and I will be happy to oblige you.


You go girl.

Why do you capitalize every single word???

Most every product sold in the USA has 2 set of instructions--one for English and one for Spanish. To protest fully, you would have to quit buying everything
You people complaining need to really research candidates and vote the ones who stand for what really matters to you. Most only seem to get fired up by religion, war, abortion and guns. Why not get fired up over illegal immigration and making English the official language? Nothing will change until a lot more Americans make that a priority. Big business will continue to rule and big/little business wants cheap labor. Big business contributes big money to pols campaigns. The problem with that is the candidate may change his or her mind when they get into office. W did just that on many subjects. Ok there is really no answer lol. The situation is hopeless and out of control. We are all doomed
No reason to single out Turf. The entire business world is doing it. Soon, Hispanics will be a huge voting block. I just hope they don't outlaw the English language

Up here in the frozen tundra, products are sold with English and French. Well, unless you go to Lowe's which has every sign in English and spanish which looks really out of place up here. Even alot of the traffic signs are bi-lingual.

And the "love" goes to the family members who are willing to live in the greatest state of poverty.

I agree. Look at any poor country. What do they all have in common? Too many people. Too many squirrels going for the same nut. I can see it happening here in the near future if we keep allowing people to pour into this country.

As far as everything being written in multiple languages: I'm looking forward to the first lawsuit because a person couldn't read the minuscule instructions written on the pill bottle because they had to reduce the size of the print to fit in all the languages. I'm not usually a fan of the frivolous lawsuit, but this is one I can get behind.
