As with us, there is social rot in the cities. Especially Manila.

Corruption is another matter. It is almost everywhere. I guess it is left over from the Spanish, mostly, and went on steroids during the Marcos era — never diminished much after that. But there are good people trying to fight it.

So?

You want me to not hurt yer feelings abiut the 70%

Playing footsie with those who despise us is how we got here

Even now folks stumble about afraid to talk about the hell racial minorities

And yes that 70 % jews and even a majority of catholics have rained down on us

We may have lost our country for good.....i am old.....nowhere to go

They live to destroy my culture....my traditions

I am angry.....and i am not forgiving nor shutting up about it

They are the enemy

Folks here will have to make choices......identity or America

Mark Levin was quite clear on this today....he sure ain’t not talking about all the 70 % crowd of various minorities

"Okay. These simply say that we better be honest here. They're voting Democrat not 'cause of immigration policy. They're not voting Democrat 'cause of open border. The border's already open. They're voting Democrat 'cause the Democrats are the party of free stuff and raising taxes -- "progressive taxation" -- on the rich to pay for it."

------ Rush Limbaugh

This is what I wrote on another thread concerning the Hispanics. Substitute the word Asian anytime I use Hispanic:

"The Hispanic knows the Democrat will work to create a easy pathway to citizenship. There is a reason why Democrats want more Hispanic citizens. Democrats have found that they can easily buy the Hispanic vote with social programs loaded with freebies. It is a symbiotic relationship which guarantees huge numbers of Hispanics becoming citizens. The Hispanic uses his vote potential as political capitol. The Hispanic vote uses the Democrat politician for immigration reforms that will enable more Hispanics to become citizens and to get more freebies."

"This mechanism threatens the Republican Party who sees the danger of unrestrained Hispanic immigration and citizenship. The Archilles’ heel of course, is the freebie. By eliminating the freebie, there is no marketing for the vote. That would take a big chunk out of the mechanism."

the GOP has an image perception problem with Asians. It doesn’t make sense — Asians generally are more conservative on average than whites. They should be a natural GOP votebank

depends on which Asians you are talking about — South Asians and West Asians more or less can pass for South Americans (and vice versa)

I will never understand how an ethnic group known for its high performance in education, business, and its work ethic could vote Democrat.

Probably because they're repelled by the WASP-y nature of the Republican party. High achieving whites with advanced college degrees are the same way.

Only the children of those immigrants that come in legally and eventually naturalize would earn this U.S. voter status . This is something that must be earned , through time , and loyalty and heritage , not part of a package deal

Well, the same should be of people who are born in the USA -- third, fourth etc generations. Voting must be a privilege not a right

BS.

Why did 70% of the white Jews vote Obama, in that case? Asian voting (esp. Chinese and Indian) is influenced by university education, just like with the Jews. They see the Republicans as people who’d like to instate a theocracy if they could, and the media has been very successful in projecting the Republicans as people with an anti-science, anti-technology bias.

More accurately, Republicans have failed to debunk the position assigned to them by Democrats and the media. But I repeat myself, on that last.

The fact that most Asians voted for obama totally negates the stereotype that they are smart.

I have never understood why just about every Asian I have ever met is a left winger. Hell, my favorite historical figure of all time is Asian - Genghis Khan. He did a good job of uniting diffent tribes of people and was definitely not a wimpy, left wing liberal. :)

My mother, when she found out the Bamster was going to win, she actually went to the bathroom to throw up.

IMHO the election was stolen - many people I have talked to say they are done voting - corruption reigns supreme.

Culturally we are here, at the tpping point and we are now going over the cliff............

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.

SANTA CLUASE WILL WIN EVERY SINGLE ELECTION. What is going on in C Mexifornia politics will spread to the rest of what used to be America.

It’s hatred of whitey. That’s all I can assume.

An Asian-owned beauty supply store opened up here, and I went in to check it out. I was the only white woman in the place, and the Asians scowled at me the whole time and watched my every move.

The GOP can begin with not lumping people from Asian countries by one label. They can then interact with individual groups based on national, not continental, background.

My mother is almost to that point. Myself, I don't know what to think, I have to cool off. Many people I talk to says voting doesn't matter.

Culturally we are here, at the tpping point and we are now going over the cliff............

I'm afraid it will take a major upheaval to change thigs, an atomic war, huge natural disaster, economic/societal collapse, etc. I think on our present course, number 3 will occur at some point and it could or would trigger number 1. As to number 2, natural disaster, I'll leave that to God and bum luck.

I'll be honest here. First off, I lean a bit libertarian, I would never harm others unless they harm me or about to. I would never use race as a motive to do harm, even if the politics are different.

That said, I think Obama has set back race and culture relations back decades, my boss said to 1970, but I think we slid further. It has affected me, and it affected my mother much more.

As Michael Savage said, "borders, language and culture." Our way of life is a culture thing and I don't care what one's race is as long as they accept our culture and way of life as it should be basically you work for what you get (unless you are truly disabled) and you keep your stuff without fear of government taking it.

Still, I'm skeptical of not only Blacks, Asians and so on until I know where their loyalties lie, I have the same skepticism with many Whites too. There are plenty of White moochers too.

Race and creed should not be issues though, but the left plays it up and many fall into that so unfortunately it is a factor among many. Pretending it is not will not solve things. If we do so, we end up with a "category error," a failure to define the problem. When you have a failure to define, you ask the wrong questions and you get wrong answers. I used to work in IT, GIGO means Garbage In Garbage Out which is the result of the category error. You feed the computer (or thought processes) wrong info and junk you get wrong answers ans junk back.

I know, just ask the Pilgrims who fled by boat.

Jokes aside, yes, they do feel threatened by the perception. Both Asians and especially the Jews.

it's ridiculous

and they use that perception then to try to destroy my culture thru their efforts?

i mean really

the problem is deeper actually

the 70% we are talking about simply believe in man, not God..messianic humanism..the new man..the Godhead and all that crap I learned in college

if they are threatened by creches on the courthouse lawn or banning abortion as signs of an impending theocracy then they are simply nuts

i think it is also just simple old resentment of the dominant culture

anti pluralism is not a new idea amongst humanist Jewish logic

neither is tikkun olam which lends itself nicely to a superficial consideration of progressive politics

it goes on and on

I will not longer resist identifying my foes here regardless of their suffering in the past

be it pogroms and the Holocaust

or the Alama and anglo conquest

or colonialism

slavery

coolie discrimination

and so forth

niceties are over

if we cannot confront our enemies and address them then how can we defeat them?

show me a counter to Speilberg, Weinstein, Geffen, Katzenberg, the Pritzkers, Newhouses and so forth in media and culture..not to mention institutional activism who as Christians work so hard to proogandize and and thwart traditional American culture and Christian values?

can you name one group of Christians here doing that to Jewish values or interests?

hell...my group..Southern baptist support Israel and Jewish freedom of worship more than they do...with little thanks domestically

nope...I’,m sorry...we got some great Jews...Mark Levin...the only guy I am listening to right now frankly.. on our side who see the light but the 70% have made their choice and I am not going to pussyfoot with them

they have been given a Holocaust pass for it too long

I agree with you on a lot of those things, but these are people who are basically on a permanent on-guard stance, vociferously unwilling to concede anything to anyone who wants to mix religion with politics - and this is one of the main roots of their hatred and fear of the Republican party.

They don’t care much about the tax schemes of the socialists because most of them fit into a high-income bracket and almost look at taxes as a twisted form of a “membership fee” to allow themselves to feel socially elevated because of their having to pay it. I am not kidding you, they are willing to bear a lot more in the way of taxes as against allowing political power to fall in the hands of whom they perceive to be theocracy-loving, under-educated inferiors.

Race and creed should not be issues though

"With equal pleasure I have as often taken notice that Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people -- a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs, and who, by their joint counsels, arms, and efforts, fighting side by side throughout a long and bloody war, have nobly established general liberty and independence."

John Jay, First Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, in Federalist Paper #2

I spend most of my time in India and the US (West Coast), and although Australia is nice, our politics is different, mainly because religion doesn’t get played into it the way it gets done here. Also, we have a parliamentary system with multiple political parties, and like-minded ones combine together to form a coalition - I believe such an arrangement guarantees that the bulk of the spectrum of the population’s voice is better represented in public office, compared to a two-party binary system.

Oh, we have an Atheist as the highest official in the country, who also happens to be a woman, and lives with a partner she is not married to. I doubt this can ever fly in the US.
