Maybe he should lead by example and go back to Asia!!

You are secretive. You post stuff that is infamatory and you like to race bait under many different proxies. Would you do that under your real name?
You're not the only one who sees that! I once seen his ISP as Taiwan before, a total proxy or he lives in Taiwan yet talks like a flaming tea bagging angry white man who hates Hispanics.

Who knows but one thing is for sure... he trolls hard and takes out his "little man syndrome" on Hispanics.

Multinational Corporate Fascists -the new untouchable world royalty- always bring in fascism by setting up their own paid off Communist or Socialist governments.
They destroy the small business person with government regulations while giving large corporations no regulations.
We need to restore America now.
What? Are you a graduate of Glen Beck University?

Forget about Chinese history. You are too far gone to grasp that, but try to learn the difference between communists and fascists. It is remarkable that you think the terms are interchangeable.

You'll soon finds out that people will troll & role play a minority and self hate. I've seen it 1000's of times.

There is one guy who used to come here named Chavo del Ocho who claimed to be Hispanic but posted 100% self hatred.

Yes... it's ridiculous.

Btw... I see your ISP is Covina, Ca.... I grew up there.

the current immigration laws allow for those with money to come in LEGALLY with an investment of a million dollars.

if they are not a financial burden to the usa, and it's not an invasion, I'm all gung ho.

Well, to be realistic, I think 300-500K should be enough.

China is catching up. We need more money and more brains to stay ahead.

the key word here is not being a financial burden to the usa.

as for "catching up", I'm not sure we should push for a scenario where we are "keeping up with the joneses". that implies that there will always be a loser.

win-win is what we should envision. not competition against one another. but team work in reaching a goal. the goal being - to produce inventions that benefit mankind in general.

I don't know about you. but most of the "asians" I know are conservative.

we save money. rather then spend it. and we don't like giving it away.

mostly pro democratic? conservative democrat? I'm not sure that fits. know what I mean?

In his own act, funnyman Dave McLeod addresses the issue of the
shrinking Indian - crayon - population.

"Yesterday I went to buy a crayon for my nephew's birthday," he says.
"But what is the one colour you won't find anymore? Indian Red. That ain't an accident, that ain't a coincidence - that's calculated
Crayola genocide."

With jokes like that, the eight native comedians say they know their
acts can rub some people the wrong way. But they didn't get into
comedy to be politically correct.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ancient-native-...

I don't think so
absolutely not, hardly, not in a million years, not on your life, not on your nelly (British), not likely, no way

When chinas gdp becomes bigger than the usa... It will be the end of american dominance. Just watch.

Many people are already starting to learn chinese over english.

Americas best strategy is to brain drain the world.

just what did "american dominance" consist of?

frankly, I don't think you know what you are talking about.

let me tell you what I think...

the leader of the pack so to speak is - the one who makes the most inventions that benefit mankind.

in the last century, it was the usa who filled this bill. they invented most of the leading innovations in the last century.

and that's why they are now perceived as the "leader of the pack".

airplane, car, microchip, personal computer, windows, computer programming languages, drugs, tv, etc. the list goes on.

in the future, this will continue to be the guage that the world will use to determine who is considered to be the "leader of the pack".

that being the case... tell us what china has invented recently that has benefited mankind?

you use "gdp" as the guage. most of the goods that china makes are bought by the usa. so, what happens if the usa suddenly decides not to buy anymore from china?

so much for your claim of chinese dominance. right?

there are 6+ BILLION people out there who are not citizens of the usa.

should we just allow everybody who wants to come do so without any regard to those who are already citizens?

I think the biggest question that should be addressed is - how many can the usa logically assimilate before the numbers destroy the country?

this is the question that the pro-illegals, and open border idiots will not answer.

frankly, as I see it, these people who are so concerned about leaving behind relatives in their "home" countries.. they should go back there. then, there won't be any worries about anybody being left behind. right?
That's right.
Judging by what I see on here, America may have already brought in too many..

We need less immigration and more jobs.

Sorry, Americans of all backrounds are competing for too few jobs in both the white collar and blue collar sectors.

We need to educate our own Americans -Whitle, Black, Hispanic, Asian... and assimilate the current crop fully before we let anyone new in -they need to appreciate our heritage and not try to change it to the place they left. This is still America, people should respect it enough to fight for it when it is being undermined.
