    Just Damn

    My wife just told me there was a shooting at our local Wal Mart, SWAT involved.
    Don't know any details yet.
    My wife was headed there this morning for shopping, but postponed due to sore throat.

    Plus one from not far from you Darth. Do a lot of the Somali's work for the beef packers? I'm thinkin' they do. I used to work for IBP in Emporia, KS. Back then lots of hispanics and asians worked there. Along with a lot of us Gringos.

    Yeah Tom, they do.
    More & more at other places too.
    I notice they have been somewhat aggressive & unfriendly in the stores.
    Lots of small but growing enclaves in the small towns, especially where the meat plants are. I hear we "gringos" are having a lot of trouble.
    Someone busses them in once a week to Wal Mart, don't know where else, they come en masse and pretty much take over.
    They generally won't/don't speak English...I feel sorry for the cashiers.
    I don't blame them for wanting to find & build a better life for themselves & their families but it seems they are trying to build Little Somalia.
    Not a good situation...
