    Facebook and issues that come with it

    I am a tad confused why a friend would mention something such as this on FB or anywhere else. Seems very jr high'ish and downright inappropriate if you ask me. It's one thing to post a picture of friends enjoying a wee tipple with the comment, "had fun with the crew last night..." compared to an exclusive picture of two people and saying, "look at these two drunkie bastards...drank everything which was not nailed down..." Talk about poor form

    Which when you think about it is wrong as it fosters a type, or at least encourages a form of social engineering.

    Ok, some of the programs mentioned which provide grant monies and other financial opportunities to Asians but not allowed to other groups are: IMMACT90 (has several programs), USPAACC (several programs), NMSDC, and various banks, large firms, etc. This is my last post on this topic due to the nature involved.

    I agree with this pretty much however what he said will not make you wealthy, or even middle class, it will only keep you out of poverty, nothing else. You need connections and you need money to make money, it has been like that for several decades.

    Yes, I am aware of the EB-5 visa program but that is not what I was referring to. Let me find the info and I will post. I know the 7 year tax free status is very common knowledge, just ask any owner of a Chinese restaurant if they pay federal income tax and the answer is always no.

    Items you can't convince yourself to buy

    This guy is asking $16,000 and he can't even spring for shipping? Talk about one tight bastard.

    What are you watching on TV now?

    The Orville and Last Temptation of Christ. What an excellent movie, this is my seventh time watching it since it was released back in 89'.

    Most Asians don't have to claw their way to anything in the US due to current immigration laws which list China, South Korea, and Japan as favored nations. As a result, when a Chinese immigrant arrives they can apply, and almost always receive, a $500,000 grant from the US government to open a business. Plus they get 7 years tax free on that business as well. This is why you see so many Asian run business. When you don't have to make the initial investment or pay taxes, it's pretty easy to set up shop. This is a perk no American citizen has. I found out about this from a good friend from HS who married a Chinese national and informed me of this bullshit. I did not believe him so I researched it and he was right, I could not believe it! He then told me his wife and her family constantly talked shit about the patrons in Mandarin. He eventually confronted her on her getting a free ride essentially and how she was biting the hand the was feeding her and her family. They are divorced now. So, food for thought, according to my friend when you go to Asian restaurants and you hear them talking in their native language and laughing, there is an 80% chance they are talking shit about you or another patron.

    Facebook and issues that come with it

    Screw Facebook, it has become some amorphous, all seeing, all knowing entity making the Big Brother of 1984 look tame by comparison (insofar as information gathering and use). When a platform can affect the outcome of elections to the degree Facebook can, in a manner which THEY can control, that there is some seriously scary shit.

    Jimmy Page Vs Robbie Williams

    Talk about elitist nonsense. It sickens me the extent people feel entitled to whatever they want regardless of potential consequence. Is this really the only house Williams can own and renovate? Why would anyone buy a home next to an historical home, registered as such, and expect to do such major renovations? To me it seems these people are quite simply egomaniacal twats with too much money and zero shits of concern for anyone or anything else. Williams was / is 100% wrong in this matter. Regarding Page and the Old Mill House, if those trees were indeed causing damage than Page was in the wrong, however if the trees were simply along the other owners lot line and he was using damage as an excuse to have trees removed which may have been blocking a view corridor than screw that guy too. I would like to read the details on that case to find out who was in the wrong regardless of the ruling.

    My apologies as I did not communicate my point correctly as I was referring to becoming wealthy, upper-middle class or better. Yes, making it to the middle class is achievable as you mentioned but rising above that particular station is all but impossible in the US the way the system is currently set up.

    As a very successful person, I could not agree less. Hard work and determination will only get you to the starting gate, if you are lucky. The only way to be truly successful is through serious networking, glad-handing, and downright Puffery (sucking up). I tell my kids this all the time, to meet the right people and foster those relationships. It does not matter what you know, how good you are, or how hard you work, all of that is irrelevant in todays market. It all comes down to one thing and one thing only, who you know. You meet and befriend the right people, you can be a completely useless piece of crap and I guarantee you will do very, very well. I don't even want to get into the difficulties one has when born poor and trying to improve ones station as in the US that possibility is near impossible the way the system is currently constructed.

    It would be worth it just for the part regarding Chicago 9th and Tempe 77' & Vancouver ? 72'...the gig Plant was supposedly given some acid before the show.
