Betty Bode, Beaverton City Council interview
Beaverton WILL NOT celebrate our 4th of July...can't afford it, they say, BUT $6000 of this nonsense is ok!
Please vote in the poll!
Do you agree with Beaverton's decision to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month?
Thank you for voting!
Yes, with public funds 12.4% (160 votes) Yes, but not with public funds 33.5% (433 votes) No 54.1% (700 votes) Total Votes: 1,293
Why are we celebrating Mexican Independence in the USA? If they are so proud of Mexico, why don’t they want to live there?
The Mexican government is behind most of this nonsense throughout the country in order to somehow try and make illegals more acceptable to the American public at large.
How does celebrating OTHER countries’ independence days help these immigrants assimilate into our culture?
“Why are we celebrating Mexican Independence in the USA? If they are so proud of Mexico, why dont they want to live there?”
Those were exactly the questions Lars Larson asked the city council woman (you’ll love her double talking pandering!)
He about lost it when she refuses to have a 4th of July celebration.
Interview worth the listen!
Hey B! Long time no see! Hope you are well.
Yeah, NW Oregon and N Washington have both sold out to the Commies.
“How does celebrating OTHER countries independence days help these immigrants assimilate into our culture?”
How does keeping them speaking 2nd grade Spanish help??
Or any of the nonsense we do???
It DOESN’T...THAT is the idea.
Divide and conquer...the oldest tactic around, and we’re all falling for it.
Ain’t they sweet...
Dang! I’ll put you on my ping list...I was using ‘other’ computers half the time and wiped it out!!
Argentina, Chile, Colombia, and Mexico all marking 200 years of independence over the month.
Independence from what.....Not the United States, they seem to depend on the US for lots. Just my opinion.
What recession? We still have plenty of money for our pet projects. :)
The whisper campaign should take care of attendance at the celebration.
MEXICO: The country so great, no one wants to live there.
yah...you don’t get much more politically tone deaf than the Mayor of Beanerton and most of City Council. He has a rather large Mexican National contingent over there and Hizzonor is obviously shopping for votes.
If you want an excellent analysis of just how dim-witted the City Fathers of Beaverton Oregon are, do a Google search on “The Round at Beaverton”. It was hyped as a model community and the perfect fusion of loot rail and condo living...and it is the biggest and longest lasting rolling train wreck you can imagine.
Mexicans are conquering our country without having to fire a shot.
