Oh-- So Now WE'RE the Crazy Ones...??

Stuff that caught my eye this morning...

TEHRAN (Reuters) - President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday derided foes of Iran's nuclear work as mentally disturbed, ignoring a fresh plea by U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan for all sides in the dispute to calm their rhetoric...
(If not wanting to be incinerated into a glowing ash heap at the hands of some sawed-off Napoleanic meglomaniac is crazy- then I'm a howling, pants pissin' lunatic!)

"Those who get sad at the progress and happiness of others are suffering from mental and psychological problems, so they should find a way to cure themselves," the student news agency ISNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying in a speech." ( Is there a cure for Liberals? )

More here.

And, on the Homefront :
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Senate agreed on Thursday to make English the national language of the United States and moments later also adopted a milder alternative calling English the country's "unifying language."...

The United States currently has no official language and some lawmakers said they feared Inhofe's amendment would lead to discrimination against people who are not proficient in English. They also said it could hurt efforts to promote public health and safety in other languages.

(Oh for the love of God, can't they come up with a better argument than THAT woreout chestnut??!! I'm sure the 100's of thousands of immigrants from non-English speaking lands in years past who came here and adapted AND LEARNED THE FRIGGIN'LANGUAGE cuz they knew we wouldn't coddle and hold their hands and prevent them from assimilating would be shocked to know that that whole time their lives were in danger!
When in Rome...,bozos.
Now allow me to translate that above paragraph from the news story into a form of English we all can understand:

Oh Crap! There goes our federal funding for printing every friggin' scrap of government paper into Spanish, Korean, Mandarian, Sanskrit, Serbocroatian, French, Japanese, Italian, German, Coptic, Farsi, Arabic, Latin, Greek, Cherokee, Aborigine and that obscure clicking language that those African tribe guys use!! Oh the Humanity!!)

The rest of this silliness, here, with some great quotes by the usual suspects

My question is will this Senate amendment be available in multi translations?
