Bankers found it too ambitious and wouldn't loan them the money. So the nine "asked our friends and family members to help us out," said Chiaxa Vagh, a founder and now the center manager.
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.

As someone who knows Irish away from Topix, let me offer the following.

Definition of BIGOT: One who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.

I don’t think wanting the same thing as the Hmong Village in an Irish Village is bigoted. He is not a bigot.

Definition of RACISM

A belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.

I haven’t ever seen Irish portray any race as inferior. He is not a racist.

Definition of DRUNKEN LOWLIFE

Having a beer or two with a bunch of off duty cops is done by Irish at least a couple of times a month. If your idea of LOWLIFE is Law Enforcement personnel then he certainly is guilty here.

So you got one of three right. That's a pretty good batting average, but a pretty poor fielding average.

.333 would not have won the batting title, but would have look good in the Twins lineup last year!

Sure. Like when you go to Irish On Grand to buy gifts, stop at O'Gara's to meet the cop buddies then run over to Minneapolis to hit Kieran's and The Local you are also visiting taxpayer subsidies businesses.

Well, actually while in St. Paul we visit the Liffey, than over to McGoverns, then up to Plums, prior to going over to O'Garas, then it is on to DT MPLS. And you are correct, as a taxpayer, and patron, I am subsidising the owners by normally paying bar bill. So what?

Riding another IrashWn "fact/lie" to death, huh ? Seems even your "posse" isn't on board, since trolls said my "pension payments" are the POs problem... Tired old lies, from "Lord of Fruit Flies" ! LMAOROTF !

What do you suppose it means, when facts don't support YOUR "reality"... I'm guessing your "reality" BLOWS ! LMAO !

On which planet, do you make allegations WITHOUT PROOF, then offer to "find" proof, if you get a blank check, get to interpret the "proof", and insult folks, who like proof with their "facts" ?? IF he HAD ANY CLASS, he's take the honorable way out... I believe it's called Hari kari !??

It's so sad when the government employees who are paid to monitor their mental patients allow the drooling cretins access to the institutes computers all day. LOL

Glad you're defining the value of YOUR "honor" to you.... Personally, I'm honest and you're NOT a better person... Just letting you know the price you're paying...

You almost have it right.

And if you know so damned much about my stances, you also know what I say to all businesses that play the Corporate Welfare game, don't you?

It's a 9/10 possession rule and also about character. YOU wouldn't understand, but perhaps I can elucidate. It's like quotes, son... Nobody owns words, but putting them together cleverly "belongs" the the person who does it, NOT YOU !

Why don't you guys just stick to 1 thread unless you have something new to add. Every thread you all embark on just becomes the same name calling and BS as every other thread you had been on before.
