    Anyone who followed the history of the collapse of Rome. At least Romulus Augustulus had been raised in the legions and had some idea of how to govern.

    I'm surprised that there's not more shock and outrage about this. The creation of an internal passport system is a huge exercise in tyranny, and for a Muslim enclave to want to wall itself off from the rest of the country, well, let's just say that I wouldn't want to be one of the few remaining people there who isn't Sharia compliant.

    Meshuga Mikey called this one. We're reverting to Medievel standards under Progressivism.

    It was named after a person, not pork products.

    Since the economy is headed for the crapper in that area they should be downgraded to Spamtramck
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I'm sure that's true, but the largest business in the city, outside of the GM Poletown plant that is partly in Hamtramck and partly in Detroit, is the Kowalski hot dog/sausage factory. Lots of pork products there, plus a cool retro neon sign in the shape of a hot dog.

    Things must've changed considerably. When I lived in the near-west suburbs up till I left for the Army in 1975, Hamtramck was largely a Polish community. That was still pretty much the case as recently as 1995 when I worked in Ferndale.

    The muzzies had already been taking over and dominating Dearborn for some years, but this is the first that I've heard that the muzzies overran Hamtramck too.

    I think they're still making Paczkis in Hamtramck for Fat Tuesday and other occasions.

    Yup.

    There are still a lot of Polish people left in Hamtramck, and the bakeries there still make paczkis on Fat Tuesday.


    The muslims in Dearborn are for the most part from Syria and Lebanon. The muslims in Hamtramck are from all over-Africa, Bosnia, etc. There is also a large Indian/Hindu community there.

    There are still a couple of good, authentic Polish restaurants there. St. Florians is still there, also, dominating the skyline.
