    You better be sitting for This one....
    This is outrageous!

    Muslim men are allowed to have as many as 4 wives. Many Muslims have immigrated into the U.S. and brought their 2-3-or 4 wives with them, but the U.S. does not allow multi marriages, so the man lists one wife as his, and signs the other 2 or 3 up as extended family on welfare and other free Government programs!
    Michigan has the highest population of Muslims in the United States.
    So now in Michigan when you call the Public Assistance office you are told to "Press 1 for English. Press 2 for Spanish, or Press 3 for Arabic"!
    Every time you add a new language to an American program it requires an additional number of persons fluent in that language to process those persons who refuse to learn English in order to live here at an additional cost to the taxpayer! Why are we even allowing persons to immigrate here who cannot provide for themselves, and putting them in our welfare system?
    Press 3 for Arabic .
    This is quite alarming!!! This seems to have happened clandestinely, for, as far as I know, no public announcement, or opportunity to vote on this was offered to the American people, They're just adopting an official stance, and very likely using tax- payer money for it, in various capacities, without public knowledge or approval.
    The following link takes you into the State of Michigan Public Assistance page, (as in Food Stamps etc). You won't have to scroll far before you see the assistance-letters options for...(get this).....English, Spanish, and ARABIC !!!
    When did the ARABIC option sneak into our culture? Will we soon have to listen to our governmental offices, stores, and other venues offer us the option of "pressing 3 for ARABIC?"
    Check it out for yourself.,1607,7-124-5453_5527---,00.html
    Please inform every red-blooded American you know, that this is happening. It is outrageous! The camel's nose is literally now

    Like here in Arizona, they now refer to a "dust storm" as a "haboob"...
    I can tell them where to stick their haboobs!
    It's out of control!

    Nothing 'clandestine' about this nonsense! It happens right out in the open, but we are kept busy with various other 'crises' to be able to see it. :rolleyes:

    When the Walmarts and grocery stores begin openly using Spanish and arabic in their ads and signage, then be very afraid!! The invasion is done.

    Thats like here where I live they wanted to make the high school kids study parts of the koran. They took the Lord's Prayer out of the schools and then wanted to force this religion on our children. We got it stopped for now, the reason for this was because the school board said that middle easteren population numbers have grown in the past few years. All of these changes are just making us American second class citizens in our own country. We are losing our rights that Americans died to protect so we dont offend people who don't even know what being an American is about. I know a doctor who has been in the US for years and keep his home country citizenship so he pays no taxes and I swear on everything his family gets free medical, and the Fed's have put both of his children through medical school. It burns me everytime I see my paycheck to know that we as working American citizens struggle to work and take care of our family and then our taxes feed and support them to live here free.

    Loanwords are probably less uncommon than one might think

    I'm just wondering how much of the change in language is due to the influence of service personnel returning from active duty in Iraq, Afghanistan and other arabic speaking places?

    Words in English: Loanwords

    I shouldn't be all that surprised hearing American veterans using some arabic words as a semi-secret language....affirming their brotherhood with each other as having both served at the two-way rifle range over there. Such words sometimes get adopted by families...and so, bit by bit, the foreign word becomes naturalised into the dominant language.

    many loanword borrowings have been introduced to the English language by soldiers and sailors.

    There doesn't necessarily have to be a sinister plot of language subversion...though impotent rage chain e-mails may give the impression that there is....ironically....this particular e-mail will probably do its bit in spreading the word "haboob" around the American community even more so......So...thank you -06 (the site's haboob nabob), for facilitating the adoption of haboob into the American-English lexicon!!! It just goes to show...not every impotent rage chain e-mail is utterly useless!!! ; )

    Granted, English is enriched by imported words, even words created that had no meaning until coming into mainstream use. However, I'm a throwback when it comes to providing assistance to those who don't want to learn the language of custom in their adopted country. Push "X" for anything other than English offends my "redneck" tendencies and sensibilities.

    Yep, we have a lot of Arabic speakers here in Michigan, Minnesota has a lot of Hmong. Oh my there are a lot of Chinese in NYC and San Francisco.

    Well what do you know we have a lot of Norwegian Rabble Rousers are taking over Minnesota and Wisconsin.

    The Finns have invaded Michigan's Upper Peninsula and are moving West!

    The Irish have taking over Massachusetts especially the Boston area and are spreading out like an octopus

    The Germans are nearly half the population of North Dakota.

    The French are all but dominate in LA not Los Angles, I'm talking Louisiana!

    And don't get me going on those of Hispanic/Latino Decent. The are every freaking where.

    Do we have an immigration problem? You bet your bippy we do. Just ask a Native American!

    We won. get over it..that's not even an argument in any of this (and my half sister is part cherokee)
    and for the record.. when my grand parents came from sicily, they learned english and spoke it both at home and in public because it was the proper thing to do. Now all these ****ing immigrants do is leech and use with no understanding of what it is to become an American.

    Even the "Native Americans" originally came over from both Europe and China, by both land bridges and canoe at various times.

    NO race truly originated here.......

    I seriously doubt that immigrants have a lock on leaching off the system.

    We've got plenty of homegrown lazy bastards that were born and bred here. To complain that it is just an immigrant problem is banal at best.

    The third generation welfare recipient, the guy that lost his job and never went back to looking. We had it before we had an immigrant problem.

    Right now some of the fastest growing businesses were started by immigrants?

    And immigrants will even do jobs that most of us do not want, like picking our produce for piece rate wages for long hours in hot fields.

    I for one am glad we have immigrants otherwise I wouldn't be here when my grand parents came here as 'Immigrants' to chase the american dream of living of a piece of land they can call their own.

    As for Immigrants not using the language, yep it will raise the ire of some 'They need to fall in line' or 'This is America, speak English' well grandma and grandpa could speak broken English but it was way easier to speak their native tongue at home and in their enclave of friends. Same is true today.

    But don't worry, if not them, we will assimilate their children into the fold and soon they won't know how to speak in the language of their grandparents just like it happened to us.

    Peace Out!

    No, they don't have a lock, but those very same people coming here opening these fast growing businesses get assistance from the gov't that I CAN'T ****ING GET as a citizen who was born here..who's family fought for this country. That's some **** right there.. most leech because they know how to do it and it's "free" for them because you and I pay for it.

    Ah, not to worry, when the dollar collapses. The will want to go back home as there will be no jobs, welfare will dry up.

    Only ones left will be those that built their houses on bedrock.

    Let's drink to the leaches and hope that their free ride ends soon [beer]

    Well guys I work in a state hospital in Louisiana and let me tell you the average person has no idea how much money is thrown away by welfare. I have fourth generation recipients, 21 year old mothers with 7 kids. 11 and 12 year olds excited they are pregnent because they get a check now. I have worked here for 10 years and tomorrow is my last day I am moving to Montana.
