Candidates come calling on disenchanted Somali voters

The number of Somalis who have become citizens and are registered to vote in this area might be small - perhaps 11,000, maybe less - but candidates are reaching out to the growing voting bloc. Full Story

"We want someone doing something for the Somali community."

No kidding, that is all Somalis ever want is someone doing something for them. Why dont you do something for the USA, instead of having 80,000 welfare leaches living in section 8 and being on welfare. Disgusting. They need more programs. NOT. "It is too hard to wire money home to Somalia" Good, I hope it gets even harder.

Dear Somilians,

Please keep getting high off your Khat, and don't bother to vote.

Signed, everybody

Too bad we cant tax them on all the deer they poach and the geese that they kill. I have saw Somalians throwing deer heads in the trash in the middle of summer, after they have slaughtered them in the free US taxpayer funded apartments that they live in.

"But they haven't seen their vote pay off for them." What the he*ll does that mean???? What handout are these freeloaders looking for? Even regular American "black" people can't stand Somali's. A very dirty, nasty, unruly people.

11,000 citizens, 80,000 Somalians = 69,000 here illegally - overrunning section 8 housing on the north end, taking a once thriving retail district and chasing all the owners out, and taking advantage of tax payer funded health care, education, and living needs. I'm sorry - I'm tired of paying for it and even more tired of dealing with it. And their driving of cars - don't get me started - they are the absolute worst - and I guarantee most don't have a license to operate a motor vehicle.

You want more votes, politicians? Get to work on deporting the illegals and you'll have more votes than you can count. There's 69,000 waiting for your visit living up around Morse Road - just bring immigration with you...

Quote:, Somalis overwhelmingly favored Barack Obama...is that because he's skinny? No seriously, ol Kilroy wants to stop by the Somali shanty town, but is afraid of being mistaken for livestock. I mean that is a ring in her nose isn't it?

The sick thing is, none of them are illegal. They are "refugees" which gives them the right to tons of government programs and welfare. The Morse rd corridor is dead because of them. They are hateful, spiteful people with their hand out at every corner. My family has owned a home for over 45 years and the apartments near us are now full of Somali section 8 welfare leaches. Our home is worthless, our neighborhood is trash. My lifes greatest regret is not selling and getting out sooner. I am from the north side of Columbus. I have no homeland anymore, there is no place to go back to. R.I.P. Northend, thanks for the memories.

I work at the auto auction. Because of a government provided vehicle allowance, the Somali car lots are selling more cars in columbus than anybody.

TaxEm - I hear you - I too live in that area and couldn't agree more. I hate driving south of Morse, going through that whole apartment area, on the way to my house - it's disgusting, trash out by the curb, outside the doors of the apartments - complete garbage. I have given up hope of getting any money out of my house. And they are the rudest and most spiteful people I have the misfortune of having to deal with. And constantly looking for more...what else can you give me...?! Refugee status? Boy, if that's not a crock of stuff, I'm not sure what is.

I guess I am a racist because I am upset my house is worth 80% less since the Somalis came in to my neighborhood. Wow. Maybe the government will buy it from us and pay for 28 Somalis to live in a place that 3 generations worked hard to pay for over 40 years.

It was a terrible mistake to allow any of these "skinnys" into the USA. They should have been left in Somalia to stew in their own juice...kill or be killed...just like they keep on doing to this day.

From the article..
Abdikarim Ali Omar said the government can't be expected to do everything.

"We know the economy is bad," he said. "But it affects us disproportionately."

You don't like it? Pack up and go back where you came from. Or start taking care of your own affairs in an honest and respectful manner. Stop demanding that productive people do for you what you ought to be doing for yourself...That covers a lot of ground beyond the Somalis.

Thank you Mike Coleman for harboring illegals. Mexicans and Somalis that breed faster than cockroaches.

Coleman and City Council spend tax dollars for these leeches to get all of their freebies at the expense of tax payers.

See the City of Columbus website:
http://crc.columbus.gov/content.aspx...

The New American Initiative is to teach the illegals how to live FREE.

Get rid of Coleman and Council.....

What they are is ungrateful, hands out, rude people who refuse to assimilate and think the govt( we the people) owe them something. I say we owe them a plane trip or boat back to pirateville.
Let see how they like going back home. I am quite sure nobody would miss them. Well maybe at the welfare office where they are surely berated by them on a daily basis

I go back and forth between being angry that they are here, and being angry with myself that I didnt leave sooner. I should have left, I just loved living here that is all. I didnt want to get another mortgage and this is the home where my family was raised. It is so sad. What am I supposed to do now? Sell the house for 20k and move into an apartment somewhere? I am too old to buy another house and work to pay it off. I may end up living in a trailer in Florida after I retire. I dont know, I cant stay here any longer than I have to now. My grandkids cant ride their bikes on the streets that my kids did.
