Does "English Only" exclude Braille? If all the documents are to be printed in English only, will municipalities provide interpreters upon request?

Very good point, thank you. So, the provision of an interpreter who is familiar with the forms could almost eliminate the need for forms in other languages, I suppose.(Of course not for Braille, as was pointed out to me blindness is a disability so Braille must be offered regardless.)

Thanks for the civil answer!

Go away Reuben, we're tired of reading your crap. Like some of the trolls on here that try to incite everyone, you spew your liberal agenda. I don't even read the bs that you write anymore because it 'trolls' me. Get an effn clue based on the last election - your liberal 'kind' are going down the tubes.

So does this mean no secret handshakes. I cannot believe how shallow this country is. What if someone stutters or God forbid has an Irish accent. We sit on our side of the ocean and watch in disbelief people hating people because of religion. We aren't the only country to have multiple languages. It makes me sad that the constituants of this representative from Mezzepa were so annoyed by this that they took the time to vote for this idiot. There are far more important things they should be working on. By the way, smoking in public isn't one them.

I did. Points 1, 2, and 3 are all fiction.

Did you really think that your "fake" facts deserve REAL facts to counter them?

1. FACT: The Democrats are bought and paid for by the unions.

2. FACT: Public pension funds are underfunded. This is not a new phenomenon.

3. FACT: Some public employees do pay into Social Security, and do receive benefits from Social Security.

Facts are always subject to proof, the ball is in your court. Without proof it's more spam, lies, assumption, or speculation. I don't question all three "FACTS" I just take issue with 1 or 2.

You are either one of the dumbest people on Our Mother the Earth, or you are playing games here, pal.

1. FACT: The Democrats are bought and paid for by the unions.

AFSCME gave 98% of their donations in 2010 to Democrats.

“The Wall Street Journal reports that the biggest campaign spender of 2010 is a public sector union, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, which lavished $87.5 million on helping Democrats.”

2. FACT: Public pension funds are underfunded.

Read the following: The $2 Trillion Hole by JONATHAN R. LAING - Promised pensions benefits for public-sector employees represent a massive overhang that threatens the financial future of many cities and states.

3. FACT: Some public employees do pay into Social Security, and do receive benefits from Social Security.

It is what it is. And they do.
