Build roads or put out spanish videos... hmmm

When ODOT is faced with the tough choice of spending your gas tax dollars on reducing congestion or making videos available in Spanish they choose... oh c'mon you already know the answer!

ODOT Video Collection:
Te Abrocho El Cinturon
15 min.
One-of-a-kind Spanish video in the form of a novella, or story. The images capture the essence of Latino family life as participants in a family reunion discover the importance of correctly installing child safety seats. The instructions cover safety seats for children ranging from newborn to 80 pounds. Parents and others will find the video fun and informative. Available in Spanish only.

I know this sounds weird but I never needed an ODOT video showing me how to put in a car seat, buckle my seat belt or not drink and drive. But I guess that I am a pretty amazing guy...

You have to wonder if the state is as broke as they always claim. I mean, if they have the $ for this crap and all of the "diversity" related programs and hires.

Until they cut the fat, and by fat I mean programs that are definetly liberal "feel good" stuff, I do not support any new taxes. Seems as if they have enough that they have money to throw away.

What a crock as the Mexes don't give a crap for no Child Safety Seats as its so easy to squirt more ninios!

The infant mortality rate south of the border is extremely high so they are prepared to loose a few.

Its culturally acceptable!

And if you have any No Trespassing Signs on your property the Police won't help you in getting rid of any unwanted visitors unless you also have No Trespassing signs posted in Spanish!

This should help = Ninguna violaciĆ³n

As if they can read in any language or much less want to learn!!!!!!

Here's a video for the ole ODOT mindless idiots...I think some folks who support Illegals are sucking on the pipe and addicted to the Illegal Hispanics who provide it to them Because any law abiding, thinking humanoid is CUTTING THEM OFF and supports DEPORTING THEM -- and if your not convinced yet, why take a peek at the link and you'll see what I mean. http://reportanddeport.org/

I enjoyed it when I got to go to this local, these folks are nothin but dung degenerates. They think they're bad, I've seen bad and this ain't it. Besides you ever been around a woman when she's PMSin...now that's bad.

Stay awake and stay resolved people, don't buy the B.S. the mainstream media isn't telling you. No more mexi-central degenerates, no more free loaders, no more burdens on the back of America.

Nope, no racist or biggots here...just your proverbial enemy, let me introduce us...WE ARE..."The LEGITIMATE CITIZEN/IMMIGRANTS of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!" And yes, we're the majority, while your doing the math if you can Illegal degenerate...we're goin kick your friggin ass out of our country. We're going to get ride of you by whatever legals means available no matter how long it takes, one by one, if necessary.

And then we're going to take your homes and cars and everything else you've acquired illegally while you have been here illegally and SELL THEM, and take the proceeds and put it back into our economy where it belongs. Then we're going to invite all the good folks who have been waiting to immigrate here LEGALLY, to come and join us in America where dreams still come true!

The Illegal Alien freeloader faucets are already being turned off as I write this com, and I LOVE IT, because your feeling it Illegal Aliens finally, and all those who support you are feeling it. What -- you don't think the American Legitimate Citizen/Immigrant has a stomach for this one...Oh, YOUR SORELY WRONG Illegal Alien, how do you think we gained our independence by kissin azz?! Oh, now that's not a fair question now is it given only 34% of Hispanics graduate from high school...your just what we want in our society and country, NOT! Roaches are more welcome and slugs crawling across salt have more sense! Shoo Fly, shoo!

Legitimate Citizen!

Soon-to-be-former Senator el gordo Smith will find out at the '08 ballot box what the term blowback means. "legitimate citizen" represents a far blunter and more hostile point of view on this issue. Although I and many other legal immigrants don't agree with his verbiage, you illegals out there might remember the lessons history has taught others regarding the safety of angering the American people. Denying your criminal behavior convinces nobody of your phony claims to acting with good intentions. Such nonsense only increases our desire to force more of you out, sooner.

When the cops do this to me, I tell them ok. My friendly baseball bat and I will take care of the problem. Then I hang up. They usually show up fairly quickly. And I haven't been arrested for it yet.....

But this does pose the question: What if the sign was only in Spanish? Would they require it to also have English? Somehow I doubt it...and THAT is the problem...

All destined to be classics! Thank you Oregon taxpayers for making sure we all have these spanish language tapes.

Of course Oregon is as broke as they say they are. After all, they publicly admit they don't have money for police, fire fighters, or roads and bridges. And they are always whining that they don't have money enough for schools. (But that is a whole different subject for discussion, is it not?)

But wait! They always seem to have enough money for light rail, illegal aliens welfare and food stamp programs, feel good things like the Disneyland tram, Vera's walkway on the Willamette, and Taliban Tommy's bike paths all over Portland.

Isn't there a bit of a contradiction here? They never have enough money for the important things dealing with public safety and such, but always enough for stupid things.

In the words of the King of Siam, " 'Tis a puzzlement!"
