Just ask the Frenchmen in Lewietown if they were ever asked to leave their culture at home. Of course they weren't all you heard in little Canada and on Lisbon St. was ribett ribbet.

I am absolutely impressed with your comments about the Somalis!!! They like many others have come here to THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and think that they can bring their culture and not adapt to ours. And yes what they do in their own homes is fine and dandy, but leave it there, we shouldnít have to change and adapt to suit their culture.
When they enter our work force and that certain job requires a uniform, such as a nurse that has to wear scrubs, but yet the Somali donít because itís not their culture. COME ON!!! If you canít dress the part, then you canít be the part!!! If I call my cable company and have to go though 3 different people before I can talk to someone who I can understand, COME ON!!! If you canít speak the part then you canít be the part!!
This whole politically correct thing is blown way out of proportion!! We are Americans and we live in America. As immigrants keep coming they keep trying to change us, ITíS A CHRISTMAS TREE!!!! Not a Holiday Tree!!! Our pledge of allegiance is, one nation under GOD. Whatís next? Are they going to challenge our money? IN GOD WE TRUST!!!
I completely agree with his comments and he should have no reason to try and smooth it out, I agree and so do many others that Iíve talked to. We need more Politianís like him.
Thank you for your time and for standing behind what you believe.
God Bless AMERICA!!

It's about time.... my god, did you guys see the program on PBS, where the Somali's were pooping in the apt sinks, and making fires in the middle of their living rooms. Now If we could just teach another backward culture to stop those behaviors, we'd be ahead of the game....ha ha ha
