One conservative group doesn't like it, either. "It seems to punish people who can't speak Spanish, and I resent that," says Peter Thomas, chairman of the Conservative Caucus, which advocates English as the nation's spoken language. "In public areas, people should be speaking English, and that includes pizza parlors."

"I think private property is a public area," Peter Thomas immediately followed up.

When this reporter asked why he believed that he had the right to enforce or encourage public language laws but felt it was discriminatory for a private firm to offer promotions, Peter Thomas remained strangely silent, occupying a span of time where a normal, fully mentally developed hypocrite could at least come up with a plausible deflection. Finally, after twisting his index finger around in his nostril for several minutes while darting furtive, side-long glances skywards, he licked said finger, leaned forward, and gave his best intense stare.

"'Murika," he said.

We then asked what he considered about situations like the Philly cheesesteak restaurant that demanded English-only ordering, a significant step up from a unilingual-only promotion to a uniligual-only patronage system, Peter Thomas simply smiled and said, "some discrimination is more discriminatory than others. And, of course, some discrimination is good."

He then suggested PBS be defunded for not having significant programs of interest to the America public, such as instructional shows on how to properly minimize the risk of blood-borne pathogens while crucifying gays.

When I was little, we found a pizza. It looked like, like, butchered. The old women in the village crossed themselves, and whispered crazy things, strange things. "El Diablo cazador de pizzas." Only in the hottest years this happens. And this year, it grows hot. We began finding our pizzas. We found them sometimes without their toppings... and sometimes much, much worse. "El cazador trofeo de los pizzas" means the demon who makes trophies of pizza.

Won't the free market solve this problem? Or is ordering pizza more like abortion and homogays getting married?

Ordering pizza in Spanish is destroying the sanctity of marriage, people. Why do so many people hate freedom?

Makes you wonder when a private business has ever been classed as a public area. I thought the country was about freedom from oppression, but perhaps they are more concerned about the gays forcing their gayness down their throats.

Refusing to serve people *any* food because of their race is actual discrimination.

Offering a free pizza for saying "Yo quiero una pizza" is not discrimination in any way, shape or form.

If by 'order' you mean ask for it, you don't have to. It says right on the menu that you can just point at whatever you want. (From the menu. Not that, and no, don't point there. NO!)

It's closer to "whore". But, since your profile says that you don't respect the views of people who live in Texas, keep on believing whatever incorrect translation you want.
