No and I wasn't posting specifically to you or anything you said, just pointing out what I observe in general in this country. That we are the land of opportunity and that people like the Vietnamese who came here in the 70's, basically penniless, have made remarkable progress.

As opposed to many here who have countless means to better themselves and won't.

My apologies if I made you feel attacked. No harm intended.

OK, no harm no foul.

Please do remember, though, that Political Asylees and others who came via other than through the normal visa process, were eligible for various resettlement assistance and monies.

So that you know, I have zero issues with those who have been a friend and, especially, those who have put their lives and their families lives at risk for us, receiving out Nations gratitude in this manner. I’ve witnessed it, first hand, in action. I appreciate them, and our Government for recognizing their contributions.
