This is the classic Irish Liar thread. Sources, threads and links are presented. Irish jigs away from his claims and the facts by stating he wants to be paid to back up his position. What a POS.

This is another example of the redistribution of wealth by your local government officials.
If the Hmong can have a tax payer supported cultural village, why can't the Irish?
Buy my vote for a change - or quit buying votes, quit over taxing home owners, and provide the limited government services that you should provide.

I found this information in the article:

"By pooling resources, they bought a vacant warehouse, then employed relatives on 12-hour work shifts to transform the space. As word of their plan spread, would-be Hmong shop owners began lining up."

And this one:

"Dan Bostrom, St. Paul city council member, is among those impressed by what's happened at Johnson Parkway and Phalen Boulevard.

"I've been around a lot of folks who've been dreamers, but they always want to do it with somebody else's money. But in this case, they did it all with their own dime."

Why do you keep repeating that it's tax payers money? You don't need to answer. I already know.

In a stunning display of hypocrisy IrishMN tells Hmong business people-

"You didn't build this!"

What a POS.

This "IrishMN" character seems to have a real penchant for lying. I wonder what he's hiding.

I noticed Hmong women are kind of chubby. That's not very Asian of them.

Not to worry the city will burn down the Hmong village like they did Swede Hollow.

Slewsie dear, Niether is the 75 year old guy you ran from. Why would you run away from an old man like that? You do have a green belt, don't you?
Slew never made it past the rainbow colored belt. He's been stuck in the doggie position ever since.

So you are saying that there is not tax money involved? B.S.
I just want an equal contribution to my Irish Village as the Hmong get for their Hmong Village. A Gaelic Heritage Center along with an Irish Public Health Center should also be part of this project.
Everyone in that group banded together and did it. If any outside money was involved, it would have been a loan from the bank.

The Hmong were the mountain people in Viet Nam who numbered less than 3000. They were dual agents working for the Chi Coms and the Allied Forces. When the Allied forces withdrew after the fall of Saigon, the Communist regime had a plan to kill all the Hmong for being traitors.3,000 turned into 50,000 Vietnamese, Thai, and Cambodian. The people you speak of are not the original Hmong, just another bunch of freeloaders the US liberals need to continue their socialist movement. They were thankful for being transferred to the US, but refused to assimilate. They have been trying to change the US into the Rat Hole Country they fled.
