To my young, “progressive” Vietnamese friends:

Via Niki Tran

Your parents, grand-parents and people of our generation escaped from bullets and prisons of Communist Vietnam, risked our lives at seas, and lived in these refugee camps for months and years on end, because we lived through socialism and know its reality. One MILLION lives were lost at seas in this process. 
Therefore, please stop lecturing us on progressivism and democratic socialism, after you have been brainwashed in schools. We have lived in stricken poverty, filty conditions, with rats and cockroaches infestation and diseases, just to be able to come to this great country; so, spare us your lecture on the poverty of inner city life. We have come to this country with nothing but the clothes on our back, with no money and little or no English skills, or knowldge of the trades, lived in 1/2-way houses in the inner cities; and so we worked as maids, garbage collectors, cashiers, waiting tables, Kmarts (your walmart’s predecessor) and any odd jobs to make a living and build our way up through hard work and savings.
Therefore, spare us your version about how disadvantaged minorities are in this country and “systemic oppression.” You have no idea what “true oppression” is like. We have been looked down upon, made fun of, and being called a chink/charlie, and most often times by blacks and hispanics; and yet, it never stopped us from working hard, in school and in life, to bring you up in safe, clean, privileged lives. So, please spare us your lectures on “systemic racism”, oppression, poverty, lacked of opportunities, disadvantaged, lacked of good education and schools, funding, welfare and support or a multitude of other excuses the left have brainwashed you to believe. The racist experience we endured are oftentimes from the people that you are seeking to protect. Understand that racism exists everywhere and in every culture! All you have to do is look back at your parents and grandparents, reflect, and know that they have endured all that you stated, and much much more; and yet, they still rise above and successfully moved on with their lives. Understand why most Vietnamese Americans are conservatives and fearful of socialist indoctrination, and the lies that they spew; and that’s because we lived it, experienced it, and suffered through it to give you what you now take for granted!

At the beginning of 1943, he was in severe pain. In the early morning of 1/3, he told the old servant to lift him up to sit up, look out at the East Sea, and close his eyes, peacefully leaving at the age of 80 with no relatives nearby. He left a letter, told to bury him in Nha Trang to be close to the people he loved.
The whole village of Dunes that day and days later no one went to the beach. They cried like rain at the death of the benefactor who spent their whole life: ′′ Teacher of the year passed away, from now on, who will help us?". The house presented the altar with his picture in the most solemn place ..
Today, every 1/3th of every year, the people of the region come to visit his grave.
You are Alexandre Yersin.
He was a student of Luis Pasteur who found the vaccine. When he thought he was about to get the next Nobel Prize in Medicine in Bach Ma, he decided to leave. He aboard the ship, became a doctor on the ship, and then loved every time the ship was in Nha Trang. He chose this place as his local residence, healing and spending his holidays on expedition.
On 21-3-1893, he found the Lang Biang plateau. In other words, he is the ′′ father ′′ of Da Lat.
In 1894, he found out rats are the cause of the plague. He opened the Pasteur Institute in Nha Trang to make vaccine to help Vietnamese fight this disease.
He lives simply in a small wooden house, speaks Vietnamese well, anyone who is poor and sick comes to cure it for free.
He made simple tools to forecast the weather. When there was going to be a big storm, he hung a very bright light in a high pole right on the roof of the journalist who told the people of Cun but didn't go,
He spent his own money to hire plumbing scissors to put water machines in many places for civil use.
He spent a large bookcase for the kids to read. He divided the sweets, taught them astronomy and meteorological forecasts.
In 1902, he was appointed as the first Principal of the University in Hanoi.
The last 25 years of his life, he focuses on studying the migration of temperate plants. Thanks to him, I have more salads, cabbage, carrots, salads, cauliflower... And especially have more coffee and rubber for Vietnam in the past.

Ozarks Wildlife Club

I find myself sitting on the bank of a lake, not far from where I grew up. Being in an extremely rural and poor area of Arkansas, we hang on to things quite a bit longer than most, both literally and figuratively.

In the 1960s, there was a thriving vacation destination in my home county, known as the ‘Wildlife Club.’ My great aunt, as well as many other locals, worked at this (what I would consider) forerunner of the Buffalo National Riveresque tourist attraction. People came here to fish the man-made lakes, hunt hogs (imported from elsewhere to tend to the guests), and just relax in the pristine Ozarks atmosphere. They even built a landing strip for those ‘high rollers’ who would fly their personal planes in to get some relaxation and rest here in the hills. The lakes were a huge draw, and were prominently featured on the advertisements and post cards from the ‘Club.’

 Diary of a Southern Refugee during the War, by a Lady of Virginia :  Nebraska Press

The Diary of Mrs. Judith Brockenbrough McGuire, 1862-1863 includes the following entry which notes the “dangerously wounded” condition of her nephew, identified only as “Major B.” She devoted herself to “B’s” care until his parents arrived, living on little sleep with pitchers of water, bowls and baskets readied for more wounded coming on the trains. Mrs. McGuire wrote of herself and other ladies caring for the wounded: “We cannot yield to private feelings now; they may surge up and rush through our hearts until they almost burst them, but they must not overwhelm us. We must do our duty to our country, and it can’t be done by nursing our own sorrows.”

 Biden Proposes $200 Gun Tax and Firearm Buyback Program

The Adults in the Room will ignore this kind of schlop coming from the MSM. They tried something similar in Canada. Canada spent almost a Billion dollars and never completed the registration process. Compliance was spotty even with horrific punishments for non-compliance. Trying this here, even getting a $200/gun tax to offset the expense, would be costly beyond imagination. If they got 40% compliance they would be doing well and they'd only get that level cooperation if they offered registration for free. Just imagine the paperwork involved in doing backround checks of half the gun owners in the USA. The NFA requires those checks be done in every state. 80 million gun owners times 50 states is 4,000,000,000 backround checks. It would take many years, perhaps a decade, to get the job done. That's even if the states submitted to doing those checks and there is no reason to think they wouldn't object to the man hours required to comply with this federal mandate. It didn't work in Canada, New Zealand or Australia, and it won't work here. It's been tried in Connecticut and New York. It was a total failure in both states. The fun part of this is that even if it is somehow pushed into law, it will be ignored by both citizens and much of law enforcement. How many folks went to prison for flash hiders on post ban guns during the assault weapons ban? No, this is just another benchmark showing how clueless people are in the beltway. Proves beyond a shadow of a doubt they can't do math.

If Hawley and Cruz Are Cancelled, Conservatism Is Next: Any conservative worth his salt should defend senators against baseless and dictatorial attacks.

The ruling class has now made it perfectly clear that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated. Questioning elite consensus threatens their power. It runs the risk of exposing their reasoning as flawed, or corrupt, or empty, all of which it often is.

 The usual suspects have, once again, cobbled together a show trial for Donald Trump in hopes of finally ousting him as the main competitor to their self-proclaimed monopoly on authority and public opinion. Nothing new, of course: this has been the aim of the ruling class, left and right, for the past few years. But now that Trump’s term has drawn to a close, his enemies have begun to focus their fire more keenly on the (alarmingly few) senators who seem poised to lead the conservative populist movement in the future. Chief among their targets are Senators Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas), whom they now proclaim “guilty” for objecting to the counting of electoral votes from certain states.

Rand Paul: Boycott sham impeachment

                                                                               Senator Rand Paul, a Republican from Kentucky, walks to the Senate Chamber for a roll call vote at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., U.S. on Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2020. House leaders postponed a vote on a Democrat-only stimulus bill to give Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi one more day to negotiate a compromise pandemic relief packag

 If Justice Roberts is not presiding over this, then it is not impeachment. This charade will be nothing more than bitter partisanship and political theater.

Sometimes in Washington, the powers that be will embark on a little bit of political theater. You can always spot it, though, if you look closely enough at what's real and what's not.

In the last days of the presidency of Donald Trump, the Democrats and a handful of Never Trumpers banded together to insist he be impeached, again.

The first impeachment of Donald Trump in 2019 was a witch hunt filled with fabricated charges, unsupported evidence and partisan rancor disguised as legal concern.

I worked against this impeachment, but I will grant it one thing — while wrongheaded, the Democrats had every right to do it and at least pursued it as dictated and foreseen by the Constitution.

Your fingerprints and a photograph of yourself will be required on the form.

This will be a difficult program to enact for the Biden regime. In 2020 a record number of Americans bought guns. According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation 8.4 million people bought a gun for the first time in 2020.

‘You Say We’re All Liars’: Rand Paul Has Fiery Debate With George Stephanopoulos

 "You’re forgetting who you are as a journalist if you think there's only one side."

George Stephanopoulos, the former press secretary for Bill Clinton turned ABC host, came out of the chute fast when he sat down with Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul on Sunday’s “This Week” political talk show.

“Senator Paul, let me begin with a threshold question for you. This election was not stolen, do you accept that fact?”
