I lived in Sulfur Springs a few miles away back in the 80's. Remember how all us kids walked Main street Noel like it was Vegas? My Mom worked at the Ben Franklin store, the arcade where the O'Reilleys was used to be the hot place to go.

Ah, memories.

yep. noel is crap why pretend its not. i moved overseas 10 years ago. i went through the noel school system in the 80's. then returned in the late 90's. it was like a third world country. very sad. it should be a crime to take a 99% white town and reduce it to 50% in a decade. the govt. and tysons destroyed a mayberry like town and now its a ghetto like town.
and somalians really now theres a brilliant race. hey i done gots me an idea lets get people with the lowest iQ in africa and stick them in a historically white small town in missouri. duh!

This is pretty typical of Tyson Foods.
They move into a community preaching about all the jobs they are going to create but then bring in the foreigners, many illegal if not all.

I have seen this done with chicken plants, meat packing plants etc, i have also noticed a lot of recalls with various outbreaks of diseases and tainted food.

I really don't see America lasting another 50 years without a revolution.

You can try to defend them(Somali`s AND Tyson) all you want.That`s your right. But don`t try for one second to try to make us feel bad for not wanting any of these foreign, non conforming,illiterate heathen SOB`s in OUR COUNTY. Many families have been here since the 30`s. the EIGHTEEN 30`s. This is our home, with our traditions and prejudices .We built everything here. We have raised generations of our children here.
If we wanted to live in a multicultural, ethnically and religiously diverse environment, we would have by damn moved to (pick a city) and lived around it. IF WE HAD, we`d try to blend in and do as the Roman`s.
That`s not even what`s happened here.
I,for one, don`t and will never apologize for voicing my opinion at every opportunity. And if you don`t live here, pay taxes here or produce something here, take your diversity and Left Wing sensibilities and shove em square up your ass.
And take your foreigners with you. All of em......or bring em to your neighborhood and treat them how you think they should be treated

The Democrats say our emigration system is broken .The only thing broken is the enforcement of our laws. We have over one million legal emigrants a year.
