    Voter ID's for me, but not for thee...

    DNC verifies voter IDs before chairman election

    Must be cuz of all them racists..
    "The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us...
    Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business."

    Subject: Vietnamese Immigrant...Worth a few moments to read.


    WOW!

    VIETNAMESE IMMIGRANT


    It looks like we did some good after all! On Saturday, July 24th, 2010 the town of Prescott Valley , AZ, hosted a Freedom Rally. Quang Nguyen was asked to speak on his
    experience of coming to America and what it means. He spoke the following in dedication to all Vietnam Veterans.
    Thought you might enjoy hearing what he had to say:


    35 years ago, if you were to tell me that I am going to stand up here speaking to a couple thousand patriots, in English, I'd laugh at you. Man, every morning I wake up
    thanking God for putting me and my family in the greatest country on earth.

    I just want you all to know that the American dream does exist and I am living the American dream. I was
    asked to speak to you about my experience as a first generation Vietnamese-American, but I'd rather speak to you as an American.

    If you hadn't noticed, I am not white and I feel pretty comfortable with my people. I am a proud US citizen and here is my proof. It took me 8 years to get it, waiting in endless lines, but I got it, and I am very proud of it.

    I still remember the images of the Tet offensive in 1968, I was six years old. Now you might want to question how a 6-year-old boy could remember anything. Trust me, those images can never be erased. I can't even imagine what it was like for young American soldiers, 10,000 miles away from home, fighting on my behalf.

    35 years ago, I left South Vietnam for political asylum. The war had ended. At the age of 13, I left with the understanding that I may or may not ever get to see my siblings or parents again. I was one of the first lucky 100,000 Vietnamese allowed to come to the US. Somehow, my family and I were reunited 5 months later, amazingly, in California . It was a miracle from God.

    If you haven't heard lately that this is the greatest country on earth, I am telling you that right now. It was the freedom and the opportunities presented to me that put me here with all of you tonight. I also remember the barriers that I had to overcome every step of the way. My high school counselor told me that I cannot make it to college due to my poor communication skills. I proved him wrong. I finished college. You see, all you have to do is to give this little boy an opportunity and encourage him to take and
    run with it. Well, I took the opportunity and here I am.

    This person standing tonight in front of you could not exist under a socialist/communist environment. By the
    way, if you think socialism is the way to go, I am sure many people here will chip in to get you a one-way ticket out of here. And if you didn't know, the only difference between socialism and communism is an AK-47 aimed at your head. That was my experience.

    In 1982, I stood with a thousand new immigrants, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and listening to the
    National Anthem for the first time as an American. To this day, I can't remember anything sweeter and more patriotic than that moment in my life.

    Fast forwarding, somehow I finished high school, finished college, and like any other goofball 21 year old
    kid, I was having a great time with my life. I had a nice job and a nice apartment in Southern California . In some way and somehow, I had forgotten how I got here and why I was here.

    One day I was at a gas station, I saw a veteran pumping gas on the other side of the island. I don't know what made me do it, but I walked over and asked if he had served in
    Vietnam . He smiled and said yes. I shook and held his hand. The grown man began to well up. I walked away as fast as I could and at that very moment, I was emotionally rocked. This was a profound moment in my life. I knew something had to change in my life. It was time for me
    to learn how to be a good citizen. It was time for me to give back.

    You see, America is not just a place on the map, it isn't just a physical location. It is an ideal, a concept. And if you are an American, you must understand the concept, you must accept this concept, and most importantly, you have to fight and defend this concept. This is about Freedom and not free stuff. And that is why I am standing up here.

    Brothers and sisters, to be a real American, the very least you must do is to learn English and understand it well. In my humble opinion, you cannot be a faithful
    patriotic citizen if you can't speak the language of the country you live in. Take this document of 46 pages - last I looked on the Internet, there wasn't a Vietnamese translation of the US Constitution. It took me a long time to get to the point of being able to converse and until this day, I still struggle to come up with the right words. It's not easy, but if it's too easy, it's not worth doing.

    Before I knew this 46-page document, I learned of the 500,000 Americans who fought for this little boy. I learned of the 58,000 names scribed on the black wall at the Vietnam Memorial. You are my heroes. You are my founders.

    At this time, I would like to ask all the Vietnam veterans to please stand. I thank you for my life. I thank you for your sacrifices, and I thank you for giving me the freedom and
    liberty I have today. I now ask all veterans, firefighters, and police officers, to please stand. On behalf of all first generation immigrants, I thank you for your services and may God bless you all.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA !
    I got this email from one of my Drill Instructors (old friend now) I don't know the validity or the origin but it sounds pretty realist to me.

    It's all about the American Dream and working hard to get there no free rides and special treatment or favors. The last 8 years of political correctness pale in comparison.

    I'd sign that petition, and living fairly close to Chi-town I'd even offer to help pack their boxes. . .

    On the note tucker posted, it reminds me of a guy I worked with twenty years ago. He got out on a boat to Indonesia before being placed with a family in Iowa. I don't recall the exact timing, but it was probably around 1973, give or take, and he was a young teen. He said on the initial boat ride, if you didn't have a skill you weren't likely to reach Indonesia. He could cook, so he cooked. He and another boy (not related) ended up with the Iowa family. Funniest story he told me was of walking to a grocery store with the idea that he would surprise their host family by preparing a meal for them. At the store, he saw cans with pictures of dogs on the labels, and couldn't believe how great America was, we even had canned dog in the store. LOL. He was cooking up a batch when the family returned home.

    He went on to get an electrical engineering degree. I think he views the US, and Vietnam Veterans much the same way that fellow in Arizona does. Heck, he's got the same last name. Must be the Vietnamese version of "Smith" or something. First name is Dung, pronounced "Young", which is how he had it embroidered on his work shirts.

    Nguyen is a very popular name... I think it's pronounced "wen".
