AMC, I thought at first you were going to get an Atta Boy, but they found that you think everyone is a good person, so your post is worth nothing to them. I always thought it is better to give a person a chance to see how they are, and make my decision from there

Ah, well my only experience is with the Sudanese......

Yeah. I dont think Somalians have been here long enough, or in large enough of numbers to get too bad of a rap.

They didn't come here to work, they came here to commit crimes and annoy people. Everyone knows that.

I think we should shut the door to refugees next.

Maine In Africa, Africa In Maine: Somali Influx
THIS IS COMPLETELY ACCURATE! I'm so glad that someone knows about this except for me. I was a homeless teenager and could not get ANY help or handouts. I tried, I admit..but was denied each time. I then yelled at the lady in the office and asked " If these Africans can come in here and walk out to their expeditions smiling with wic/food stamps and section 8...why can't I get a little help finding some housing?!?!". She looked very embarassed and looked down at her desk but had nothing to say. Here I was, 17, american born...struggling to finish HS (which I did) and living in a ratty shelter that was only open 10 hours at night. Yet I couldn't get ANY help. And I mean NOTHING.
When I worked at the grocery stores over there, the Africans NEVER paid in cash. I cannot remember ONE (LITERALLY) that ever paid in cash. It was always with a food stamp card or WIC. On top of that..they whistled at me like a slave and made those annoying ticking sounds that they always do and snapped their fingers at me for service. AWESOME RIGHT? We let people come into our country and trample on us. I was in Portland, Maine all by myself without a family...no one..and as a 17 year old girl I couldn't get ANY help. Not even healthcare. I got sick from overworking and studying and fainted at my job..and because I wasn't able to receive medicaid like all of these other somali's ..I was stuck with a $700 hospital bill...which I obviously couldn't afford. It ended up going on my credit as well. I can't believe this is allowed. It seemed like such an obvious injustice;

they came here for handouts. I didn't say they were committing crimes. I said they wanted a free pass, to be a drain on society, and to annoy us. by the way, YES, it is annoying when an intruder demands foot baths in public places. if I ever see a foot bath in a public place, it will become a urinal.

A foot bath is a just that - a place to wash your feet. It happens to be a religious practice for some to cleanse the feet. There was a lot of foot washing in the bible too - remember Jesus?
