Primus American Life Lyrics
Songwriters: CLAYPOOL, LES / LALONDE, REID L. III / ALEXANDER, TIMOTHY W.
In a town in southernmost Sicily
Lived a family too proud to be poor
In the year that fever took father away
They hastened for American shores
Now a mother and her son are standing in line
It’s a cold day on Ellis Isle
And they look to the Statue of Liberty
For the boy we have American Life
Ong is a Laotian refugee
He works in the audio trade
The smoke from flux is filling his lungs
He’s earning minimum wage
Spending spare time down on
San Pablo ave
Once a week gets a woman for the night
And he writes home tales of prosperity
For the boy we have American Life
Bob is an unemployed veteran
Born and bred in the South Bronx
He’s living off the streets down in east L.A.
Residing in a cardboard box
Now he plays a little quit and he has a small dog
Searching for aluminum cans
And he hold on tight to his dignity
He was born into American Life
Interview: “Like Afghanistan Without Nato”, MP Farmajo.
Posted on January 18, 2011 by SomaliSwiss
In an exclusive interview, the US-educated African leader says Islamic terrorists are flocking to his country. And preparing to strike the West.  Three months after leaving behind a comfortable academic life in the United States to become Prime Minister of Somalia, Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed has a chilling assessment of the state of affairs of his native land. “Somalia is like Afganistan. But the one difference is that NATO is in Afghanistan, and all the terrorists who have fled Kabul are now here.
”Speaking with La Stampa, Mohamed sent a clear warning call to the West. In Somalia, Islam ic terrorists “have found a safe haven from which they can strike New York, or Milan. The international community must understand this and act on it soonest, and Italy should take the lead.”
Until last fall, Mohamed was a college professor in Buffalo. Now he is at the helm of a government of 18 people, for the most part former expatriates who have come back home after years abroad in an effort to save the country from becoming the African version of a Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. Mohamed’s transitional federal government remains in power until August, when his mandate runs out. It is not clear much the temporary leaders can change a country considered the world’s most dangerous.

snip. . . ‘Median monthly rent for apartments in Columbus is lower, ranging from $683 for two bedrooms to $989 for four, according to federal statistics. Yet housing regulations prevent having more than two people per bedroom in apartments, and affordable three- and four-bedroom apartments are scarce. Gudey stays at the shelter with her three youngest children — three others are at school. Her husband, Sheikh Mohamed Abdalla, is trying to learn English, hoping to find a job once the family finds a home. As of Friday, 11 families totaling 82 people — about 40 percent of the new migrants — still were staying at the shelter. They are bused to churches at night to sleep. “They did overwhelm the system, and they caught people off guard,” Van Lehman said. Most of Ohio’s first wave of Somalis started arriving in the mid-1990s to escape civil war. About 400 Bantus, a group whose ancestors were brought to Somalia in the 19th century as slaves, came to Columbus last year. Most now have jobs and houses or apartments and are familiar with most aspects of American culture, community officials say. Columbus now is home to about 30,000 Somali immigrants, a community smaller only than the one in Minneapolis. Franklin County had $639,704 in federal grants to help the first wave of immigrants find jobs, houses and health care, enroll their children in school and learn English. A coalition of government and social service organizations will request more money, said Lance Porter, a spokesman for the county’s Department of Job and Family Services.  . . .snip

U.S. Department of Health & Human Services

Homelessness

HHS is the United States government’s principal agency for protecting the health of all Americans and supporting the delivery of essential human services, especially for those who are least able to help themselves. As such, the delivery of treatment and services to persons experiencing homelessness is included in the activities of the Department. The coordination of these services, both within the Department, as well as with our Federal partners who provide housing and complementary service programs, is a critical component of achieving the goal of preventing and ending homelessness.
Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has been elected as chair of the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness to assist in the implementation of the first federal strategic plan to prevent and end homelessness.

Just saying….

18.6 Million Empty Homes In America, 3.5 million homeless

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.

They go there to make mor…
