Has The Forth Riech Begun In The USA?

Between the immigration law in Nazizona, with Texas and Utah seeming to try and follow, the racist attitude towards the president, the teabaggers in general and all the fringe groups out there, now comes this-------




This is Alabama; we speak English,' governor candidate says

Amid a national debate over Arizona's tough new immigration law, Republican Alabama gubernatorial candidate Tim James (and son of previous Gov. Fob James) vows in a new campaign ad that if he's elected, he'll give the state driver's license exam only in English, as a cost-saving measure.

"This is Alabama; we speak English," he says in the ad. "If you want to live here, learn it."



It's not clear how James thinks the change would save the state money. Marc Ambinder of the Atlantic says Alabama could actually lose billions of dollars in federal funding if it enacts the measure, and he points to an Alabama political blog that runs down the legal history for why the exams are in multiple languages.

James says he's been attacked by the left for the ad, singling out MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. A writer on her blog called the ad "just plain mean" and argued it was simply pandering to the candidate's conservative base.

"I have come under attack and under assault by a very interesting group of far-left reporters," he said Monday, according to the Birmingham News. He said English exams are a public safety issue, to ensure drivers can read signs. Exams are currently given in Arabic, Chinese, English, Farsi, French, German, Greek, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish, Thai and Vietnamese, according to AOL News.

Better question: Why the fuck would you even want to live in Alabama?
Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.

Isn't the University of Nebraska's football team called the Corn Holers?

It's better than The State As Big As A County. :mrgreen:

Close enough, Jay. We're also all Lions fans, thanks to them drafting SUH. Can't wait to see him make Tebow cry again.

Is that Lions as in Detroit Lions owned by Bill Ford??

If so, I laughed very hard last year when they beat the Redskins....my wife is a Redskins fan, while I am a fan of the much better team, the Baltimore Ravens.

Well, now SUH can carry the weight of the whole defense. Now if someone wants to beat the Lions they'll just have to not let them score. :P

Do I get the feeling there is a thread hijack in progress?
