Geno's Steaks in south Philadelphia has removed a sign posted a decade ago that told customers to order only in English

A landmark Philly cheesesteak stand has removed a sign posted a decade ago that told customers to order only in English.

Geno's Steaks in south Philadelphia made headlines in 2006 over a small sign posted at the shop stating, "This is AMERICA: WHEN ORDERING 'SPEAK ENGLISH.'"

Late owner Joey Vento said at the time he posted it because of concerns over immigration reform and the increasing number of people who couldn't order in English.

He died in 2011. His son, Geno Vento, took over the business.

The cheesesteak stand on Thursday said Geno Vento has "decided to move on from the sign."

The shop says in a statement, "It's not about a sign. It's about what you do and what your mark in life is, and Geno wants to change that mark in life."

Third world subhumans should not be in America to begin with, and if they cant speak English then they should be kicked back to their POS third world village from where were born.

Does that mean I can order in German or Japanese? I can do that! Don't you think it is time to stop kissing the beaner ass and make them speak English?

LOL! I just had some asshole cop try to play chicken with me.

I took a spin out on the freeway to get all the pine needles off my car from the storm we had here yesterday. I turn off at the 144th Ave exit in Lynwood so I can turn around and head back to Seattle.

It's about 3:55 AM. As I'm heading down the surface road to make a left onto I-5 South, I see a car coming up toward me. There's no other traffic in sight. There's not much lighting and it's pitch black. I notice the guy seems to be way over on to my side of the road. As he gets closer I realize he's driving a good several inches over the double yellow center line. He's not swerving around, he's driving in a perfectly straight line, so he's obviously not drunk. He's doing it purpose.

I pull to my right a few inches. Just enough to give me room for a last-second evasive maneuver in case the guy turns out to be a maniac who is trying to deliberately ram into me. Other than that I don't budge because, fuck you, I'm not the kind of person who backs down from assholes. I guess he thought I was some kind of average little suburban wussy who would freak out all over the road because I was scared of him.

He keeps coming. He seems to just very slightly angle away so now his left-side tires are right on the outer double line. I don't move a fraction of an inch because, fuck you, bring it on.

He goes flying by me at a distance of maybe six inches, and I see it's a patrol car! Fuck! WTF, dude! I can't make out the city, but it's either Lynwood or Shoreline (both widely known shitholes).

I actually stop right there in front of my on ramp in the middle of the road to see what the fucker is going to do. I look back at him and he keeps moving, but going a little slower now to show me he's all about evaluating me in his rearview mirror, the way cops do when they think they're being all slick and letting you know who's boss even if they're not going to stop you and give you grief at that very moment in time (a tactic which has intimidated no one, ever).

I say fuck it and get on the freeway. I'm so pissed off I miss my exit and end up going 10 miles out of my way to get back home.

Fucking asshole. There are many safer and less nazi ways of checking potential drunk drivers, if that's what he was trying to do.

Incidentally, Lynwood is full of lingerie-clad whores who work in little no-name coffee shops on the side of the road and strip and do lots of other things for the customers. They keep cracking down on it, but it keeps popping back up. Does he fuck with the whores? No, he has to terrorize me, mr. middle class safe driver who hasn't had a ticket in years and doesn't even drink or do drugs anyway.

Probably some punk rookie driving around with his scout explorer boyfriend trying to show how everybody how big his balls are. Fucking asshole. Stupid, too, given the current anti-police environment. I'm one of the biggest police supporters there is, and he has to choose ME to fuck with. Asshole!

Nobody would drive that far in a ruler-straight line on my side of the road toward me when there were no other cars on the road unless he was fucking with me. If he was texting or otherwise engaged he would've waited until he was safely past me. And he would've been swerving at least a little. And even after he corrected, he hugged the center line like a railroad track instead of moving a safe distance over. But sure, take his side. Enjoy the scary whores at the coffee shop together and collect your bribes and listen to the Carpenters together and drive around in your squad intimidating innocent people so you can think you're big tough guys who own the whole damn road and everything on it.

LOL. Unlike you I take pride in my ride and I don't drive it around covered in the crap off the trees with blobs of old-man fluid all over my face from sucking off all the hobos in the neighborhood.

I work nights and that's when I'm active. Don't like it? Eat me.

If I deliberately drove toward a cop at 35 mph and forced him to take evasive action to avoid a potentially deadly collision I could get an ADW. But it's fine when they do it because they have a badge, and I shouldn't even dare to open my mouth about it. Right. Meanwhile, they whine that nobody likes them.

You're an idiot. No wonder you had to become a fireman. Have one of your bunkie buttboys stick a hose up your ass and flush out all the shit your deformed head is filled with instead of brains.
