Alabama governor commercial

edited May 2010 in The Pub
Have you seen the commercial for the Alabama governor candidate? He says they will only give the drivers test in english if he's elected.

YES! I've been saying this for a long time. We should not have to change. If you can't speak english, either learn it or GTFO of my country! :rockon:

    I second shwaip. Last time we looked unless you are an American Indian or an African American, you immigrated here. Who cares what language you speak as long as you contribute?!

    BuddyJ is also correct. Being raised in Louisiana and having lived in Alabama, English is a second language for almost the entire southern Bible Belt.

    Lets look at this from a stand point of how many languages the road signs are printed with. Reading the signs without the English language can be quite difficult. The way I see it, require one language for the drivers test or start printing multilingual signs. Personally I think the multilingual signs is the way to go. Reading a multilingual users manual is so much less confusing. :D

    Signs have shapes so you don't need to be able to read to understand them.

    Hence how people in Alabama who've attended public schools still can drive whilst being illiterate.

    I find it disappointing that this point is being used to win votes. I guess all the problems with unemployment, crime, education, etc. have been solved in Alabama. I'll move in next week. :D

    Whatever Alabama governer says could NOT be as bad as my own Missouri's write-in senator candidate. The man is so uneducated it scares me that we have 10,000s more where he came from.

    All this hype over how much English would it take to pass the test. I don't see the problem with this. Its not as if the drivers test will have the whole English dictionary. I'm not going to go so far as to say get out. However I will say if you don't learn enough English to read the road signs then stay out from behind the wheel.

    lol.

    i also support the ability to stop anyone who looks like they are an illegal immigrant (aka, brown). it clearly isn't subject to abuse. tim, the law allows the police to stop anyone that looks like an illegal immigrant. how would you describe someone who looks like an illegal immigrant, and how does that description differ from how you would describe a permanent resident / naturalized citizen?
