With Kentucky possibly in a $1 billion budget hole, printing up tests in one language only could shave a few dollars of the deficit.

Well that was short lived thanks to Governor Beshear.


Interesting words from Gov. Beshear, i guess he didnt see the poll that a Louisville news station took today that said 93% support a English-only drivers test.
An the Hammer falls!!! on laws that make no sense. Or maybe he didn't want to lose the support of the 7% of people who didn't agree at the risk of losing the support of the 93% that support it. Political suicide or, better data than your average lay man has access to?

That law did was very short lived.

Last time I checked - the road signs are in ENGLISH (though pro-illegal groups will likely be trying to change that soon as well).

Glad to see laws that favor safety over political correctness.

And the hammer falls? lol I thought AZB had a patent on that phrase. Guess we all tend to rub off on each other, huh. Might wind up being a good thing. My faith is reborn.

Maybe there is hope yet.

Hehe, yeah I did it on purpose. I figure some of you would get a kick out of it. Sorry AZB for the blatant disregard of your copyright.

On the side though, I do have learned quite a bit on the month or so that I have been posting here. I can say that I am a much better informed individual due to coming to the CDF. I hope you guys can say the other posters and the people just like to read can say the same.

The pro illegal advocates are grasping at straws: being that most of them are indeed some variety of 'Hispanic'------------they are using machismo to cover up their growing fear that mass deportations will be commencing.

Thank you Kentucky for the voice of reason.

Our state has gone to symbols so you don't have to read. The only problem is that when you see only part of a symbol, it can sometimes change the meaning. Kentucky has the right idea.

Beshear has a small history of playing games with illegal immigration. Beshear said that he supports 287g but wants the federal govt to pay for it. He claims he'll do it when the federal govt pays for it (crickets chirping.)
