It's Betelnut and you chew it with lime leaf and has an effect similar to Kava.

I feel sorry for our Micronesian community having to adjust to our modern society after our U.S. govt. contaminated/screwed up their islands with atmospheric nuclear testing.

Then, they get stuck in the one of the most expensive places in the U.S. to live in while trying to adjust to a foreign country/lifestyle.

I forgot to write that nothing is wrong with the Micronesians.

I hope we can get them back to their home before they get screwed up by our lifestyle.

They are different. They don't act like us. They do things that irritate us. So a lot of us locals here jump on the micro-bashing bandwagon to somehow feel better about ourselves. There are even micro-bashing forums on the web.

Funny though, the people I see who bash the Micronesians the most are pretty screwed up themselves, and don't even realize how stupid they sound when they're doing it.

Micro's they just been a little to radiated! Nuclear bomb testing or stuck in a microwave!

The other night there must have been several hundred of micro's playing b-ball and softball at Cartwright field. Also, noticed tons of them down at the Ala Wai courts. When did we get stuck with these guys?

The beetle nut thing is nasty!
I understand it must be difficult to adjust to our society. You can still maintain your culture and adjust to society at the same time. They just don't seem to do it. They are working all of the low-income jobs that we don't want, which is not a problem. The problem is that they suck at them! Terrible customer service, nasty hygiene habits and lack of commitment. I have hired many at my previous job at a parking company here in Honolulu. Their work ethic comes in a distant fourth to I don't know what.

We "got stuck with them" because the United States accepted a United Nations mandate on Micronesia (which the Japanese had occupied in World War I and then got to keep under a League of Nations mandate in 1919). The United States let things run down, used some of the islands for above-ground nuclear weapons tests, got most of the people hooked on nutritious food items like Spam, and then, for some insane reason, said that they could all move to the United States anytime they want and with no strings or restrictions attatched.

Apparently they can also sign up for welfare and other tax-payer funded benefites with no restrictions either.

And, since we no longer require immigrants to learn English once they get here, we have to deal with a growing population of people from a generally rural Third World environment who don't speak English and have no pressing incentive to learn.

No matter how bad things are for them here, it must be better for them here than back in Micronesia.

Given that set of facts, do you blame them for coming here. They come here because they can. The can come here because our government allows it.

But lets not forget that there was a time when the Chinese, the Japanese, the Okinawans, the Koreans, the Filipinos, the Samoans (and maybe members of some other ethnic/national groups) were also seen as primative, strange, and a threat to "our" island society.

I'm just pointing out what many others are thinking, but afraid to say. How do we civilize these people so we can expedite the acculturation process. Any thoughts?
every ethnic group has faults. we just have to learn to deal with differences. it's those ignorant racists who can't adjust and start bashing any group that cannot conform to our 'civilized' way. take a trip somewhere 'far'(not mainland) and see if we're 'better' than others.

They are an ethnic group that shows us our past. With all the problems resulting from our love of technology, the micronesian shows us what our culture used to look like with out technology. Doesn't this remind us of the Hippies of the late 60's? Hippies were more flamboyant & colorful.

They are here because they do not have to lift a finger and everything is given to them. A church rounds them up and ships them over here and they go first in line for all free stuff. Probably the church gets a big cut.

They spit everywhere, even in stores, lay around all day, keep having more and more kids which RUN WILD.

Meanwhile, their home islands advertise "Come to beautiful unspoiled Micronesia, uncrowded beautiful swimming and diving." The alleged bombing was around 60 years ago.

Makes no sense that taxpayers of Hawaii are forced to spend millions to support them.

Micronesia is about three-quarters of the way from Hawaii to Indonesia, and its remoteness and limited flight schedules have curtailed the development of the tourism industry, a bonus for the travelers seeking UNSPOILED natural beauty and and ABSENSE OF CROWDS. As of May 2010, the only international airline servicing Micronesia is Continental Airlines, which offers flights from the US mainland via Hawaii or Guam. On the islands, many hotels and resorts offer shuttle services, and car rentals are available. Local charter companies offer flights to the outer islands, and there is regular boat services between islands. According to the FSM Visitors Board, you should allow several months to plan a visit to the remote outer islands, as it can be logistically complicated.

Practical Information
The official language of the Federated States of Micronesia is English, with eight indigenous languages also spoken. US dollars are the legal currency, and major credit cards are accepted at larger hotels and resorts and many dive shops. Temperatures throughout Micronesia average 80 degrees F all year; rainfall is heaviest in late spring and early summer. There is a small chance of typhoons between June and December. Pohnpei is especially rainy -- one of the rainiest places in the world, according to Lonely Planet. US citizens must have either a passport or certified birth certificate to enter FSM.

Natural Attractions
The islands vary considerably in landscape. Some are high and mountainous, some are flat coral atolls, and some are rugged volcanic outcroppings. Sokehs Rock, a prominent cliff face, is a dramatic landmark on Pohnpei, and the strenuous, steep hike to the top is best done with a guide. The freshwater streams, waterfalls and natural swimming pools of Pohnpei evoke images of a Pacific island paradise, while Kosrae was called the most beautiful island in Micronesia by Lonely Planet. Throughout the islands you will find pristine sandy beaches, waterfalls, lakes and streams, gorges and valleys, mangrove forests and grasslands. The tropical vegetation that thrives on the islands includes orchids, hibiscus, coconut, plumeria and banana trees.

What they have to adjust to is being responsible for NOTHING.

Deserving locals are pushed aside as these people are put first in line for all government freebees.

Food, housing, millions in medical services, everything is free to them.

Save your sorrow for working families pushed out of their homes, maybe if they paid less taxes/fees which go to support these freeloaders they would not be in the situations they find themselves.

Look at all the funds depleted when money is stolen to go into general fund (hurricane, rainy day, sewer, gas tax).
