Wave of Vietnamese Americans run for office in Orange County
It will not be too many years down the road where the USA will not resemble anything people from past generations will recognize. Who will we have to thank for the enormous transition?? Politicians and Immigration.
I was in Vegas a short while ago and looked around as I was walking down the boulevard and noticed; there were very few Americans in the crowds. For the most part, the people were mostly foreigners.
The worm has slowly turned in the USA. The same transition that happened in the late 1800’s with the Italians, Polish, German and other European people migrating to the LAND OF OPPORTUNITY, is exactly what is happening today, only coming from different countries, some of which are enemies of the USA. Little at a time immigrants are filtering into this country, it is almost unnoticeable until a person stops, takes a good look around and notices the change.
There are huge differences between the immigrants from the 1800’s and some of the people now entering the country today. One of them being, 99% of the European people who came to the USA way back when; their purpose was to better themselves and establish a good place to raise a family. They were hard-working, industrious, good honest people looking to make a better life. Most of which became citizens of the USA going through the proper channels.
Many of the people who have or are slipping through the immigration cracks these days are nefarious individuals whose main purpose in coming to the USA is to try to destroy it. This is why immigration has to tighten the belt. If only 1 or 2 of these criminals can be stopped from entering the USA by the used of the vetting processes, that will be worth the effort.
CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM
Citizens in the United States have been concerned, since Colonial days, with crime, and worry that they will be victimized by immigrants (Mears, 2001). The concern is based on the belief that foreign-born individuals are members of a criminal class who threaten community cohesion by committing a disproportionately large number of violent and property crimes. Violent crimes include homicide, rape, robbery, and assault. Property crimes include theft and fraud. Some offenses are crimes of habitation that involve threats against a person and their property (for example, burglary). According to Fox News (2015): “Statistics show the estimated 11.7 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. account for 13.6 percent of all offenders sentenced for crimes committed in the U.S. Twelve percent of murder sentences, 20 percent of kidnapping sentences and 16 percent of drug trafficking sentences are meted out to illegal immigrants.” Are these sentencing numbers high? Are they low? Should there be a concern about crimes committed by both legal and illegal immigrants? Research consistently shows that foreign-born individuals are less likely to commit crime than naturalized citizens in the United States and that immigration status may abate crime within a community. The opinion in blue I disagree with. 13.6 percent of all offenders – 12 percent of murders – 20 percent of kidnappings -16 percent of drug trafficking are high number the way I see it.
Lets face it folks; we live in a changed world from what we knew and it is not for the better. Back then there was a kind of innocence to our society and way of life. With the escalation of drugs, porno, lack of family structure, CROOKED politicians running the show, with religious leaders being a disgrace to what they profess allowing pedophilia to exist, kids brought up under all of these uncomplimentary conditions, our country has gone to hell and will NEVER get back to where it once was.
The kids today or in the future will never know what it means to live in a harmonious environment I once lived in the 40’s & 50’s. When is the last time you slept on your front porch or left your doors unlocked when you went to bed?? When was the last time you told a young lady she looked nice without some PC-er claiming you are a molester.
A good majority of these problems we have in this country today could have been avoided, if only the politicians did their job. Gotta put the blame where it belongs.
As we have witnessed in the last couple of years, the fools in DC spend more time and money trying to discredit the other party, they spent little to no time concentrating on the important issues. After all, they have to fit all of that hostility into the 138 days a year they work, if that is waht you want to call it. What a waste ofhumanity.
Our country is literally falling apart, BUTT what are they concerned about, some guy bumping into some girls boobs 30 years ago at a beer party where everyone was drunk.
It had to be 100’s of million$ of dollar$ and 100’s of thousands of man hours wasted, all for naught. What was the engine that drove this movement? To get PDT. If CHC would have appointed Kavanaugh, he would have been wearing the black robe 3 days after he was tapped for the job.
This just one of the many situations the DC Duds got involved in that are totally unnecessary and never come to any positive conclusion. It is a real shame that no one can control what these fools get themselves into.
I remember years back when the country was starting it’s decline (and still is); congress got themselves involved in the baseball strike.
Can someone tell me that a baseball strike is more important to these clowns than a collapsing bridges, underground utilities, sewer and water lines that are hanging on by a thread, civil unrest, terrorism, homeland gangs out of control, that is just for starters? To the DC Duds, baseball must be more important.
One of the major factors that feeds the incompetence of these fools is; they do not have to live in or like the rest of the citizens. When they go back home at night in their chauffeured limos, they don’t drive through the ghettos, they put their blinders on and drive past them.
They do not have the same health insurance, pension plans and living conditions Joe and Jane America do. The have their own tailor-made plans, designed by themselves. Why you may AXE?? Because they think they are special people who are entitled to a better way of life, feeling far superior to THE LITTLE PEOPLE they are supposed to be representing.
The old cliché once was; to control DC by the way we vote and who we vote for. That may have been all well and good in the old chivalrous days, BUTT they are gone and never coming back. When these fools are elected, no matter what their intentions were before, it doesn’t take long before they fall right in line with the rest of the crooks. I always have maintained; it is a shame that we are forced to vote for the best of the worst. Essentially, we are screwed either way we go.
As far as the Vietnamese people in Orange County are concerned; get used to it. What we are witnessing is just the beginning of this country taking out the old and putting in the new. In some cases, I would concluded is not a favorable transition.
I am elated I was born when I was; it allowed me to see the better side of humanity.
