The Significance of Inducing Sen.Lott's Resignation

Why? Why did 80-20 help to induce Sen. Lott's resignation from the Majority Leader's position? Here is why.

(1) America has leaned significantly to the right since 9/11. Since 9/11, our country is much more strict in immigration policy, less pro-diversity, and shows less respect for civil rights and minority concerns. All of that might be temporarily necessary to counter terrorism. But 80-20 is not that sure. It reserves its judgment for now.

(2) Talks could lead to actions. If pro-segregationists statements could be made with impunity in the guise of today's anti-terrorism atmosphere, who knows if the "clock can't be turned back."

(3) Human nature is such that the weakest is the most vulnerable. The APA, being the smallest of minorities and therefore perhaps the weakest, will be the first to be discriminated against, should the majority, God forbid, decide to turn the clock back.

Given those 3 reasons, a politician who made pro-segregationist statements MUST BE PUNISHED severely, so that no other politicians will dare to try turning the clock back. That is why 80-20 decided to induce Sen. Lott's resignation.

Please be aware that no APA individuals, regardless of how wealthy and powerful, can effectively impact such an event. Only a group like 80-20, that has the group political clout to deliver a bloc vote to either party in the next presidential election, could induce the political will forcing Sen. Lott's resignation.

In inducing that result, 80-20 has protected you from gradual shift in political atmosphere detrimental to you and your children.

Join 80-20 to boost our GROUP POLITICAL CLOUT . Thank you.

What Has 80-20 Done for You This Year?

What has 80-20 achieved on your behalf this year?

THANKS TO YOU, 80-20 achieved the following and more. Visit:
http://www.80-20initiative.net/unity1.html

Starting from the middle of a displayed table, you can read about 80-20's SUCCESSES in the Michelle Kwan episode
in the Abercrombie & Fitch T-shirts episode, &
in its successful warning to all politicians never to stage racist attacks on APA political candidates, ..., etc.
Time required to achieve those results were respectively 2 days, 2 hours, and from the primary elections of 2002 to the general election.

80-20's latest success is related to its last e-mail to you entitled "80-20 Calls for A New Vote on Senate Majority Leader." At 11 a.m. on that day, S. B. Woo faxed the Senate Republican leaders and Andrew Card requesting a re-vote for its majority leader. Only five hours later, at 4 p.m. the same day, the GOP Caucus announced
that it would conduct a re-vote, to be held on 1/6/03!

On Dec. 20th, Senator Lott has resigned as the majority leader.

Of course, 80-20 didn't induce all that all by itself. However, just as certain, it showed that 80-20 knew politics and timing, and made the APA voice, YOUR VOICE, count. In this episode, 80-20 aimed to use its political clout strategically to become "the feather that breaks the Camel's back." We succeeded.

Certain things can be done by group political clout only!

Help nurture our community's group political power. Be a member! Being a member is a proud public statement that "I do my share to win justice and equality for our children."

80-20 Calls For a New Vote on Senate Majority Leader

80-20 today called for the Senate Republican Caucus to hold another vote on its majority leader. It urges YOU to do YOUR part to support that position.

The APA is the smallest minority, and therefore perhaps the most vulnerable. There are times that we must speak out to protect our interest. This is such a time, in light of Sen. Lott's repeated pro- segregationist statements.

As a result, 80-20 has issued a press release . S. B. Woo, President of 80-20, also faxed a letter to GOP Senator Don Nickles, the number two person in the GOP Caucus today. It supported Nickles' call for another vote on the majority leader. Copies were sent to other Senate leaders and the White House.

Beware, however, 80-20 is only as strong as you are. Its press release doesn't mean much unless you take the time to support its position. We urge you to fax(preferred) or e-mail the following leaders.

Senator Don Nickles
Fax (202) 224-6008, senator@nickles.senate.gov

Senator Mitch McConnell, who'll be the number 2 person in GOP in '03
Fax: (502) 582-5326, senator@mcconnell.senate.gov

Andrew Card, Chief of Staff, The White House
Fax: (202) 456-1907

Show our political establishment that APAs, though small in number, are highly organized and therefore can be very effective in politics affairs. Purpose? For our political leaders to begin taking our interests seriously.

Be sure to include your name, title, profession and address in your message. The message can be very short. An example is shown below. However, please use your own words.

I support 80-20's position on Sen. Lott. I urge another
vote on the senate majority leader.
Signature
Name, title, profession
Postal address

Counting on you. With every fax you send, you increase the political
clout of yourself and your children. Do it today.

Then They Came for Me

The following came to my mail box. See if you like it. Thank you.
Then They Came for Me
By Stephen F. Rohde, Esq.*


First they came for the Muslims, and I didn't speak up because I
wasn't a Muslim.

Then they came to detain immigrants indefinitely solely upon the
certification of the Attorney General, and I didn't speak up because I
wasn't an immigrant.

Then they came to eavesdrop on suspects consulting with their
attorneys, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a suspect.

Then they came to prosecute non-citizens before secret military
commissions, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a non-citizen.

Then they came to enter homes and offices for unannounced "sneak
and peek" searches, and I didn't speak up because I had nothing to
hide.

Then they came to reinstate Cointelpro and resume the infiltration
and surveillance of domestic religious and political groups, and I
didn't speak up because I had stopped participating in any groups.

Then they came for anyone who objected to government policy
because it aided the terrorists and gave ammunition to America's
enemies, and I didn't speak up because ... I didn't speak up.

Then they came for me. By that time no one was left to speak up.

Stephen Rohde, a constitutional lawyer and President of
the ACLU of Southern California, is indebted to the
inspiration of Rev. Martin Niemoller (1937).


ANNOUNCEMENT: Harrison Leong, who is a Sociology major with a minor in Asian Studies at Bowdoin, will join 80-20 as a full-time Special Assistant effective June 1, 2003. He speaks Mandarin and Cantonese and will be stationed in San Francisco, CA. His GPA is 3.5 in his major courses, and 3.2 overall. He is passionate about working for 80-20 and came to us very highly recommended.

Our Shared Dream & Your Membership

It's Thanksgiving day. 'Tis the time to be thankful to our Life Members; to regular members whose membership expires on 12/31; to those who support our cause but who are not yet members. 80-20 needs you to renew or upgrade your membership, or join as new members.

Why does 80-20 need YOUR membership?

It's not because we need your money to make a living, since all leaders of 80-20 work as volunteers. We need you, because we want to REALIZE OUR SHARED DREAM -- building up our community's political clout to win equal opportunity for you and your children.

80-20 can do things for YOU that you yourself can not hope to get done, regardless of how much personal wealth and power you may possess. Certain things can be done by group political clout only.

Group political clout depends on numbers. We have 630,000 APA families on our e-mail list, which is very impressive. However, we have only 1600 dues-paying members which is embarrassingly small except for the fact that it was 80-20's first attempt at instituting a dues system.

Therefore, 80-20 must redouble its effort, while hoping that YOU will help personally.

If you are NOT yet a member, please join us TODAY. It take each of us "putting our shoulders to the wheel" to enable our children "to rise as high and go as far as their ambition and ability will take them" ­ the accepted definition of EQUAL opportunity. You and your children face glass ceilings. Glass ceilings mean UNequal opportunity.

If you are a member, please consider upgrading your membership. You could upgrade from Basic to Family Membership, or from Family to Life Membership. 80-20 hopes to achieve 100% in membership renewal.

If you are a Life Member, you've done more than your share. However, if you can afford it, please consider upgrading your Life Membership or making a generous contribution.

There are six types of 80-20 memberships:

1. Basic (1 vote) -- $35
2. Family (for couples only, 2 votes) -- $50

Stopping Racist Attacks -- Unity Is Power

updated for 2004 election

You may recall that there were two racist attacks against APA candidates by their political opponents in the 2002 PRIMARY election. As a result, 80-20 announced a tough policy aiming to stop such attacks.

Resources were set aside. We mapped out tactics to punish such guilty politicians and their political consultants. S. B. Woo, 80-20 president announced:
"There is only one way to stop such attacks: when politicians and their consultants find out that a racist attack on any APA candidate anywhere in the nation means an invitation for 80-20 to come in and defeat them in either this or the next election."
Text of the original resolution, and where we ask APA candidates to consider finding ways to nicely make it known to their opponents, is found here:
http://www.80-20initiative.net/resolution0402.html .
Was the policy effective? Did similar racist attacks occur in this year's GENERAL election?

80-20 is proud to report to you that thus far its policy has proven to be 100% effective in the GENERAL election in 3 fronts:

First, The one and only candidate, Ralph Appezzato, who was explicitly named by 80-20 for alleged racist attacks on Alice Lai-Bitke in the PRIMARY election for an Alameda County Council seat, committed suicide recently. He and Alice were to have a run-off in the GENERAL election. Since he was deceased, Alice Lai-Bitke won easily by 71% to 29%.

Secondly and more importantly, no racist attacks on APA candidates were reported to 80-20 anywhere in the nation during the GENERAL election of 2002, except for one case.

Thirdly, even in that singular case where a Republican candidate, Karen Balderston, mounted a racist attack against her Democratic opponent, Swati Dandekar who is an Indian Am., in an Iowa House of Representative race, Balderston was immediately jettisoned by her own party. The Iowa GOP rejected Balderston by: (a) unlisting her from the Iowa GOP web site, and (b) yanking financial support and direct mailings assistance for her. In addition, the chair of the Iowa Republican party, Chuck Larson, said: "The recent statement by Karen Balderston is not acceptable and does not reflect the philosophy of the Republican Party or its leadership."

On election day, Dandekar won.

Since the 2000 election, the Republican Party has served APA interests well in two particular aspects. First, President Bush has appointed more APAs to significant federal level positions than President Clinton. Secondly, GOP's immediate rejection of its own candidate owing to her racist attack on an APA candidate was
exemplary. The Democratic Party may have some things to learn from the Republican Party in these aspects.

To induce both political parties to compete in serving the rightful interests of the APA community was the reason for 80-20's advocacy of a SWING BLOC VOTE. It seems to be working. UNITY IS POWER.

Update: NOT a single racist attack has been reported to 80-20 in 2002, 2003 or 2004.

Vote This Comming Tuesday

Vote this coming Tuesday.

If every registered APA votes on that day, the national % of APA voters may just be reported as 3%. How come? Because the number of non-APA voters will drop off significantly in any off-election year. However, if we vote, then an above 2.5% participation will be reported as the historic 3%. Will that increase our political clout!

The Asian-American Village web site, perhaps the most popular commercial site designed exclusively for Asian Americans, has launched its election week series, "APAthy to Action." The title of the series is a take-off from a new book, entitled "Click on Democracy: The Internet's Power to Change Political Apathy to Civic Action."

The first article of the series is:

Clicking to Democracy

New Book on Politics Spotlights APAs' Role in
Pioneering Online Activism

by S. D. Ikeda, Asian-American Village

A Giant Passed Away

Chang-Lin Tien, the principal founder of 80-20, former Chancellor of UC, Berkeley, passed away last night. Our community lost a pillar of strength. I lost a dear friend.

Chang-Lin has achieved highly. Yet he was willing to take risks on behalf of our community. He didn't care about protecting his own feathers. He cared about doing the right things. Such persons are rare in our community. I hope his death will motivate us to emulate him and try to fit into his huge shoes.

In tears,
SB

B) Find out how people reacted to 80-20's e-mail on "Sen. Torricelli/ David Chang/Asia Gate." There was not a single negative reaction, although not all positive ones are shown here.

(1) You are so right!!!!
As Asians, we are so enamored with being in the inner political
circle. The way some Asians get there is through illegal campaign
donations. That hurts all of us. Joe Yew


(2) Thank you for the substantial message, hope every 80-20 member
keep the lessons it in their minds. Phoebe Andes


(3) Right! Right! We need to educate those Silicon Valley companies,
that gave huge money to the Republicans, naively believing that the
R would protect their business. What happened to their business after
the election? They were the first ones to be crashed. We need to
educate our people about American politics and American history.
Thanks for the good work you've done! Lin Jian


(4) "... While there are good and bad people on both sides of the
aisle, it bothers me that the list of David Chang, John Huang, Johnny
Chung, Maria Hsia, and Charlie Trie etc., all raised money for the
Democratic party. ...." George Lin


(5) Thanks for the message. It's timely, informative and appropriate.
Henry J Lee


(6) Very good message. This message should be repeated often.
Chinese are not uninterested in politics. Thousands of years of palace
Intrigue have taught us to be very astute at it. However, the lesson
learned is not suitable for the modern US scene. Chinese learned
politics as a self-centered and individual-oriented art. What can my
contribution do for me and which politician I should become buddy
with? We have not learned that there are certain things only a group
can do. Politicians and emperors come and go. Selfish interest and
ambition do not protect our public good. My two cents worth of
additional remarks. Larry (Larry Ho is 80-20's Treasurer)


(7) I like reading your messages all the time. Thanks for your effort.
I agree that politics must be learned. For new comers like me & many
of my friends this is an urgent thing. For example, the John Huang's
case was not known to me and your two lines were not enough for me
to comprehend. Can you or someone run a few stories (examples) on
what happened and what can we learn from past mistakes as a
community? I know many of my friends want to be more active than
passively following. Anything along this line would be good.
S. Joe Qin, Associate Professor and Quantum Chemical ....


(8) For the benefit of most of us, please print the federal
contribution rules and ways to account for and prevent the future
mistake. Jay Junekun Choi


(9) Hi, I like your message. Keep up with the good work.
HT Tien, Professor, Michigan State University


(10) ... More seriously, your reminder that Asian Americans should
be extra careful in making political donations is very well taken. ..
James C. Hsiung, Professor of Politics


(11) This is USA politic. We can gain political clout w/o BRIBING our
politicians for favors. DVD


(12) In 1999, Michael Hsing in NJ informed me that his company
donated money to Torricelli or his party at some big convention
(forgot the details). Then T. wrote a rousing letter, which I read, to
Hsing supporting the cause of the plight of victims of Japanese
tyranny. It was at the height of our trying to push the Feinstein
bill. So I organized a group to go to Washington to drum up support
from the aides of some sympathetic members of Congress, & Torricelli
was on my list. I was surprised that I was able to get an appoint-
ment to see his chief of staff (she) so easily. When we got there, she
asked for the purpose of the visit. (I thought she understood it.) I
showed T.'s letter and the group showered her with book, pamphlets,
letters, package on Comfort Women. She read the letter and then
ponderously replied: "I don't know how committed Sen. T. is to
this." So we left with hopes of an ally.

What happened next was a big black hole. Lesson learned -- Some
politicians say things that people like to hear to get their money or
votes. So what else is new? JJ


(13) Great to see you have the talent and patience to educate us, the
Chinese American, in participating in mainstream politics.

Those who got into trouble in your report were behaving in very
traditional Chinese way. "To buy influence". ... Dennis T. Su

Breaking News!
According to PoliticalCircus.com mail@politicalcircus.com: " Although the Congress ultimately approved the use of the nation's military forces against Iraq yesterday, all six voting Asian Pacific Americans Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate voted against the resolution."

Senator Torricelli/ David Chang/ Asia Gate

What can we learn from Senator Torricelli's downfall, David Chang's imprisonment, and the campaign finance scandal of 1997, that The New York Times christened "Asia Gate.?" Remember those days, when our entire community was tarnished for the misdeeds of a few?

80-20's conclusion is: Don't engage in illegal political activities. While that is obvious, there is also a subtler message: Gaining political clout is much more complicated than giving money to politicians, even when one were willing to do so illegally! David Chang of NJ, John Huang, Johnny Chung, Maria Hsia and Charlie Trie, ..., etc. all found that out the hard way.

Politics must be learned, like all other subjects. However, there is no book on how to gain political clout. Hence, those individuals in our community with political field experience (electoral politics, appointive politics, and political action committee experience) must be looked to for advice. Never again shall we follow those APAs with little political experience and little substance, but driven by blind ambition to seek political power and business profit.

If you believe that our community needs political clout, give your money to political organizations that have the experience and the track record of gaining political clout for you. Don't give money to politicians who don't share our rightful concerns.

Want to know how much money 80-20 has given to politicians in its 4.5 years? $500. $100 to each of 5 politicians in order to qualify as a multi-candidate political action committee, in accordance with Federal Election Commission requirements. But, look how much 80-20 had gotten done for our community, thanks to YOUR SUPPORT for a bloc vote and YOUR PAYMENT of membership dues.
http://www.80-20initiative.net/unity1.html shows these achievements.

John Huang raised $3,000,000 from our community for the Democratic Party. Result? Our community got trashed instead of gained political clout.

Others have raised a lot of money from you for presidential candidates. They chaired the fundraisers and got themselves appointed to public offices. However, when our community was in trouble, where were most of them?

80-20's leaders are answerable to YOU only, not to politicians. Ponder that point a moment. You will know which ones deserve your financial backing. Thank you.

PS (1) If you want to be a Life Member, visit http://www.80-20initiative.net/membership.html

Regular membership for 2002 will expire soon, on 12/31/02.

80-20's election will be from 10/21 (Monday) till 10/25 (Friday).

Update on 80-20's Political Actions

80-20's modus operanti is to reward politicians who share APAs' rightful concerns and punish those who don't. Since its inception, it has shown its effectiveness in many ways, including non-political events such as asking Abercrombie and Finch to withdraw its offensive t-shirts, and expressing our displeasure at Seattle Time's headlines on Michelle Kwan. For a complete account, see
http://www.80-20initiative.net/unity1.html

Here is a report updating 80-20's effectiveness in political matters.

(a) At its inception, 80-20 sent in writing to both political parties, its aspiration to see an APA appointed to a cabinet office. That request has been honored by both President Clinton, a Democrat, and President Bush, a Republican.

(b) Since its inception, 80-20 has issued only one DIRECT political demand. It demanded that the Republican party withdraw an infamous "Daisy" TV ad. It was done the next day.

(c) Since its inception, 80-20 has endorsed only one candidate -- Gore. Although Gore didn't win, 80-20 delivered "more than 2 out of every 3 APA votes to Gore," according to a formal national poll, partially funded by the Nat'l Science Foundation. 80-20's success in delievering a bloc vote is now written up in not only articles but also a book "Click to Democracy: The Power of the Internet to Change Political Apathy into Action," which discusses how the CNN polls also show 80-20's success. This book is now available through:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0813340055/qid%3D1025198992/ ref%3D=sr%5F11%5F0%5F1/103-1079944-2047015

(d) Since its inception, 80-20 has only censured two politicians. One was Congressman Christopher Cox , a Republican, who chaired the infamous "Cox Committee Report." The other was Ralph Appezzato, Mayor of Alameda, who made a racist attack on an APS candidate Alice Lai-Bitker in a party primary for supervisor in Alameda County.
Since our censure of Mr. Cox, he has(a) hired a person to handle public relations for him with the APA community, and (b) approached C-100, a well-known Ch. Am. organization, and asked for a meeting.

Mr. Ralph Appezzato, who was to be in a run-off with Bitker, unfortunately committed suicide on 9/16/02. While 80-20 censured Mr. Appezzato for his racist politics, and obviously meant to put pressure on him, it never intended to wish him ill in a personal sense. He was known to have prostate cancer. 80-20 shares the grief of his family.


What does all that prove? UNITY IS POWER.

News on 80-20's Election

Nineteen candidates will be running in 80-20's Oct. election. To view those candidates' names, bios and statements, please visit http://www.80-20initiative.net/Election2002.htm The 19 are certainly the most willing to serve. They may well be among our best and brightest.

To encourage participation in its election, 80-20 tried hard to encourage female and non-Chinese American candidates. In addition, 80-20 will pose the following header on its web page where voting occurs:

"As you vote, please beware that diversity in ethnic background, gender and geographic distribution in 80-20's leadership will likely make 80-20 stronger. Please also note that 40% of Asian Americans reside in California, and that California is the state where our votes could make the largest impact on the outcome of presidential elections. "

Ms. Ying Yang, a volunteer Web Master residing in Los Angels, has made steady improvement to our web site. Go visit http://www.80-20initiative.net/Election2002_Officer.htm and see it for yourself!

A Role Model/ Paul Igasaki

(1) WHAT A ROLE MODEL
80-20 sponsored a contest for its members to help recruit new members. The winner of the contest would win a round trip, economy airfare ticket to Asia.

Susan Wu of Alabama won the contest with 9 recruits*. When she was offered the ticket, she wanted to donate it back to 80-20. When 80-20 replied and said, "Thanks, but you've earned it!" Susan Wu replied:

"I recruited 80-20 members because I believe it is our duty. I am only doing my part. My donation is from the bottom of my heart and I am sincere about my decision. "

Guess what? Susan Wu is only 70 years young. What a role model!

*If everyone of our 1600 members had done what she did, our membership would have increased to 14,400.

(2) Paul Igasaki -- VICE CHAIR & ACTING CHAIR OF EEOC JACL (Japanese Am. Citizens League) and OCA (Organization of Chinese Ams.) has each passed a resolution urging President Bush to re-appoint Paul Igasaki to the Equal Employment opportunity Commission (EEOC). They also urged APAs to call or e-mail or fax the President. If you agree with the position of our two sister organizations, please ACT TODAY.

CONTACT THE WHITE HOUSE DIRECTLY --

A CHALLENGE to Our Best and Brightest

Will you run for an office in 80-20 in order to serve our community? There will be no pay, lots of work, lots of headache and some out of pocket expenses. That is 80-20's CHALLENGE to our best and brightest.

You may ask, why should I take this challenge? Here are two BIG reasons.

(1) Who gets cussed out the most in America, day after day?

Answer: The President of the USA, no matter who that person is. Statesmen have always known: "It's a privilege to serve. Criticism comes with the turf."

(2) Why would anyone be so masochistic?
It is because the best and brightest are steeled by a value
system, eloquently expressed by Theodore Roosevelt:

"It's not the critic who counts; not he who describes how the mighty had allen; and how the doer of deeds could have done them better.


The credit goes to he who is actually in the arena; whose faced is marred with dust, sweat and blood; who tries valiantly; and who comes up short, time and again."

Our community needs you. 80-20 needs you.

There is no shame in wanting to serve and not getting elected.

There is only shame in not wanting to serve or not daring to run. Again quoting Theodore Roosevelt:

".. He (the one in the arena) is at least better than those timid souls who know neither defeat nor victory."

Deadline For Declaring YOUR Candidacy:


August 31, 2002!

Please note that candidates must be dues-paying members before
8/1/02. Please submit a bio, a filing fee of $50 which will be
returned to all winning candidates, and a statement of candidacy of
no more than 150 words specifying what office you are seeking to

Professor Chun Wa Wong
3780 Keystone Ave.
Suite 106
Los Angeles,
CA 90034-6363

Write down your e-mail address in the check please.

The following officers will be elected:

President, Vice President (or President- elect), Treasurer, Secretary,
Chair of the Nomination Committee. In addition, at least two more
Board members will be elected.
To be aware of the duties of each office, please visit:
http://www.80-20pac.net/bylaw.html
.

The exact number of Board positions available will be declared
after August 31, when 80-20 knows the number of candidates. There
will be two candidates for each available position. The names of
candidates seeking officers' positions will automatically be entered as a
Board member candidate. That way the best candidates, in one
capacity or another, will be elected to serve 80-20.

Thank you for considering to serve 80-20, and indirectly
ourselves and our children.

Why Does 80-20 Need YOU?

Do you know why 80-20 needs YOU?

Not because we need your money to make a living, since all leaders of 80-20 work as volunteers. We need you, because we want to achieve YOUR goal -- build up our community's political clout in order to win first class citizenship for YOU and YOUR children.

A community goal of that magnitude can be achieved by Group Political Clout only. Mind you, however, that Group Political Clout depends on numbers. 80-20 already has an impressive e-mail list of 600,000 APA households and individuals. However, that e-mail list must be complemented by a fairly large number of dues-paying members to unleash its true prowess!!!

That's why 80-20 needs YOU.

August 15 is the last day that you can enroll as a member and be eligible to vote in 80-20's internal election on Oct. 21, 2002. All who join 80-20 this year will be enshrined in history, with their names permanently displayed on 80-20's web site as the first generation of dues-paying members. Hurry!

Membership information:

Basic (1 vote) -- $35
Family (for couples only, 2 votes) -- $50

Using a credit card, visit
http://www.80-20initiative.net/membership.html.
PERSONAL checks are payable to "80-20 PAC", mailed to:

80-20 Rated Tops in the Nation

Three scholars of the Univ. of Syracuse will publish a book that rates 80-20 as one of the two most successful, perhaps even the most effective, cyberspace political organizations in the nation in the 2000 election season. The book's title is "Click on Democracy: The Power of the Internet to Change Political Apathy into Action" S. B. Woo, President of 80-20 , was invited to write a "Foreword" for the book, which will be published by a division of HarperCollins. It can be pre-ordered on Amazon's web site: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0813340055/qid%3D10251989 92/ref%3D=sr%5F11%5F0%5F1/103-1079944-2047015

Chapter 2 of the book states: ".. for a Woo- or Bogosian-style success story in 2004 or beyond .." By "Woo," the authors mean the 80-20 PAC, of which S. B. Woo is president. Bogosian, Joe is the head of Young Professionals for Bush, the other most effective cyberspace political org. The book devotes 1/3 of Chapter 8 to describing 80-20 and its successes.

The idea for this book came from Dean David Rubin of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, Syracuse University. He suggested to his faculty that the 2000 national election would be the first one in which the Internet could play an important part. He invited any faculty members interested in researching the internet's role to come up with a plan for the research, and possibly for writing a book.

Profs. Steve Davis, Larry Elin and Grant Reeher organized a research team of about 10 persons to monitor Internet efforts of political parties, traditional media, and other politically oriented groups. They rated 80-20 as perhaps the most successful cyberspace political organization in the 2000 election season in achieving its goals and creating SOCIAL CAPITAL. Social capital is the connection among individuals, giving rise to social networks, reciprocity and trustworthiness . This "capital" enhances general happiness, health, and the quality of participants' political life.

S. B. Woo said, "80-20 is greatly honored. 80-20 was only 3 years old when evaluated, and yet it was rated as one of nation's best two. To my knowledge, no other Asian American civic or political organizations have gotten that kind of attention -- selected for careful evaluation by prestigious mainstream organizations, twice in the last two years."

He continued, "The other assessment of 80-20's effectiveness was a national survey led by a group of professors from Utah, Harvard, Yale and Florida, and sponsored by The National Science Foundation. The national survey showed that APAs voted for Gore, as suggested by 80-20, 'by more than 2 to 1' in the 2000 election. The real message of the two evaluations is clear. Our community's political clout is winning respect from the mainstream society, and that 80-20 is a significant organization. The credit goes to all who support 80-20. Politics clout depends on numbers. 80-20 now has 600,000 supporters on its e-mail list."

The survey result can be found in the following page:http://www.80-20initiative.net/PNAAPs.html

80-20's Flag Project Spreading like Prairie Fire


When 80-20 started the Flag Project a year ago, individuals responded, but few groups did and "seas of flags" were rare. This year? Significant improvement! Even
the mainstream media have reported on "seas of flags'" created by 80-20 supporters:


Oakland Tribune -- Patriotism Will Fly High in Chinatown "When almost 200 volunteers finish placing American flags high and low around 11 blocks of Oakland's Chinatown .... the place will look like a sea of red, white and blue. ...."

Dallas Morning News -- Asian American Unfurling Patriotism "Chinatown might be the last place you'd expect a sea of red, white and blue flags this holiday. But there they are. ...."

How encouraging. This kind of news coverage helps to erase our foreigners image. Acting in unison is power!!

Here is a summary of what has happened nationwide in the
Flag Project that 80-20 initiated:

Number of Volunteers turned out: an estimated 400

Number of flags Distributed: 4900 paid for by 80-20, 3000 paid for

By Oakland Consolidated Chinese Association (Presided by Richard Mak), and an estimated 150 large flags paid for by merchant organizations in various cities.

Number of Radio Stations Broadcasting 80-20\222s Ads for a week:

10

Media Attention: Associated Press, San Francisco Chronicle, Dallas Morning News, Houston Press, San Jose Mercury, The Straits Times (Singapore), Lansing State Journal of Michigan, many radio interviews, coverage by a number of TV stations, and numerous articles in the ethnic media.

Cities That Sponsored a Bigger Program Than Last Year: Almost every city did better but particularly Dallas, Oakland, SF Chinatown, San Jose Japan Town, San
Jose Vietnamese community, NY Chinatown, Brooklyn, Flushing (New York), Cleveland, Lansing (Michigan), and Monterey Park.

A Special July 4th Message

The nature of 80-20's mission -- to fight society's discrimination against you and win equal opportunity for you -- compels 80-20's e-mail messages to dwell almost exclusively on the negative aspects of America. Hence, 80-20 would be remiss if it doesn't use the occasion of July 4th to celebrate what is right about America.

Two features of American benefit most of us greatly.

First, when compared with other nations, America is the mostopen to and inclusive of immigrants. That so many of us are here provides the best proof.

Secondly, America is the land of opportunity. Not all of us are rich and famous. Many of us have faced the glass ceiling. However, what better proof is there in acknowledging our "land of opportunity" than that most of us are living well?

80-20 wants to use this occasion to express our collective thanks to the nation and urge all to be patriotic.

Loving America, however, is not equivalent to always agreeing with our government, our officials or our President -- a concept that is not familiar to many of us. Officials and presidents come and go. Our government is but a tool to serve us. If you don't agree with a given policy, feel free to speak up. You are a part of America. You have the right to give your vision of America.

It is the nation, the American people as a whole and our constitution, to whom we owe our gratitude, respect and dedication. Indeed, the freedom of expression is one of the great blessings of liberty that we enjoy as Americans.

Generating Positive Image for the APA Community

1) GENERATING POSITIVE IMAGE !

Associated Press, a worldwide media service, is doing a fairly big article on 80-20's Flag Project. It may be carried in YOUR local papers. Please look for it. Topics covered include the following.

4500 poster flags will be up in store windows owned by APAs in big cities in CA, NY, Texas, and other states. If you live in those states, please look for the poster flags in Koreatown, Chinatown, etc. The flags have 80-20's name and web site address. A SPECIAL THANKS goes to all volunteers who distributed & put up the flags.

Radio ads urging APAs to display flags on July 4th shall be broad- cast in many big cities in 3 languages, Vietnamese, Korean and Chinese, from 6/28 to July 4th.

2) STAFF CHANGE

Joy Chang, 80-20's Special Assistant till now, will be leaving to attend Hastings Law School on 6/31. Many at 80-20 are starting to miss her already. Best wishes, Joy. We appreciated your dedication to 80-20.

Jing-Li Yu was selected to replace Joy, after a national search. Jing's SAT scores were 800 in verbal, 750 in math; his Graduate Record Exam scores were 98% in both categories. He was an economics major at U. of Penn and a cum laude graduate of Penn after only 2 years. At the age of 21, he has finished his course requirement for a Master's degree in Social Sciences at the U. of Chicago. He comes very highly recommended.

Tim Chen is still 80-20's Special Assistant stationed in San Francisco.

3) An OUTSTANDING Article by Stewart Ikeda

PLAYING THE HATE-CARD IN THE MIDTERM ELECTIONS -- Racial Attacks in Campaigns aren't Just Politically Effective, but Politically Correct

Stewart is the web master of Asian-American Village, and a good friend of 80-20. His article starts with an "teaser:"

What do Matt Fong, Ben Cayetano, David Wu, George Nakano, David Chiu, and Elaine Chao have in common?

a) All Democrats
b) All elected to federal office
c) All Chinese Americans
d) All presumed or implied to be foreigners by their countrymen

Erase our "Foreigners" Image on July 4th


What if people always see a sea of American flags on July 4th, when they drive through major APA population centers such as Chinatown, Indiatown, Japantown, Koreatown, or Little Saigon?

Will they STILL think that APAs are foreigners? No, because the best way to solve an image problem is to present a diametrically opposite images.

July 4th will be here soon. Get ready.

(a) As organizations, help create "Seas of Flags" in prominent APA localities, and (b) As individuals, display a flag in front of your home/ business.

To help you accomplish the above, please visit http://www.80-20initiative.net/flagproject.html , where you can 1) listen to and/or download 30 second radio ads in Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), Korean, or Vietnamese for use in your community!

2) read the articles mentioned above and send your favorite to your friends
and relatives to get them to join the Flag Project!

3) get FREE paper flags, suitable for store windows and fronts (indoor
and outdoor usage), mailed to you in bulk, IF you volunteer to distribute
these flags to APA stores in your locality! E-mail Tim Chen timochen@pacbell.net
who will provide "how to do it."

4) find out where to buy flags with holders at a good price!

As a part of 80-20's $50K investment in the Flag Project, 80-20 will buy air time in radio stations in major APA population centers. So you'll be getting plenty of help.

What did we get for our last year's effort?

Hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of good publicity resulted in mainstream media, including Newsweek, Business Week, NY Times, LA Times, Boston Globe, SJ Mercury, major TV channels, and National Public Radio.

Our community rallied. Superlative editorials came from prestigious ethnic papers. Examples are:

"... When mainstream society stops doubting our loyalty,

our equal opportunity follows. What a great campaign led

by the 80-20." -- editorial, SingTao, July 4, 2001

"... We truly support the "seas of flags" strategy .. What is so pleasing is that the strategy has met with great response. It is unlike past suggestions from our elite which often met with cold reception from grass roots." -- editorial, The World

Journal, July 4, 2001.

TOGETHER, we can change odds and lift ourselves up by our own bootstraps. BUT YOU MUST DO YOUR SHARE!

Solid Proof That Unity Is Power

Since YOU've kept faith with political self-empowerment, since YOU choose to invest in 80-20, 80-20 has achieved greatly for YOU and YOUR CHILDREN in a short 3 years. For evidence, please see a table at: http://www.80-20initiative.net/unity1.html

The user-friendly table lists 80-20's major achievements to date. It lists, for each event, the date 80-20 stepped up and called for action and the date when the result was achieved. Those ahcievements include:

1. Asking Abercrombie & Fitch to withdraw the derogatory T-shirts.
TIME REQUIRED FOR RESULT (TRFR) : 2 hours

2. Inducing Seattle Times to take a serious look at the "American outshines Kwan ..." headline and give a sincere apology.

TRFR: Two days

3. To appeal to APAs to display flags on nat'l holidays such as July
4th in order to gradually erase the "perpetual foreigners" image.

TRFR: Response from many APA community was immediate.

The "seas of flags" resulted in huge amount of positive coverage from mainstream media, including NY Times, LA Times, Boston Globe, Plain Dealer - Ohio, Newsweek Magazine (Web version), San Jose Mercury Times, Sacramento Bees, ABC, Philadelphia, NBC, NY KRON/NBC, SF, KCRA/ NBC Sacramento, FOX TV, Houston, WOR TV, NY, Nat'l Public Radio - N. CA.

4. To urge President-elect Bush to appointment APAs to his cabinet.

TRFR: Two days

5. To demand that the Republican Party take the infamous "daisy TV ad," which perpetrated "yellow peril" fear mongering, off the air.

TRFR: One day

6. To forge a bloc vote in the presidential election of 2000.

TRFR: 2 years. (According to a poll partially sponsored by the Nat'l Science foundation: Nationally, APAs voted 66 to 32 for Gore and in California,
voted 70.25 to 18.25 for Gore whom 80-20 endorsed.)

See how closely the two dates -- the dates when 80-20 called for action and the dates when the results were achieved -- correlated. Is this close correlation a mere coincidence, or a clear indication of 80-20's effectiveness?
You be the judge .

Please go read the table, which also provides why 80-20 called for each
action and the methodology used by 80-20 to induce the desired esult.

80-20 Provides A Much-Needed Community Service

80-20 will add a much-needed community service. It'll help APA candidates who come under racist attacks. Two such attacks occurred in this year's primary contests in CA. 80-20 shall help the attacked candidates with its powerful e-mail list
and up to $10,000 of funding
immediately. More funding is possible but will require approval by 80-20's Steering Comm. on a case-by-case basis. Here is why such a service is necessary and effective.

1) Are there examples of racist attacks on APA candidates?

Yes. Just this year, there were two alleged racist attacks on APA candidates running in California's primaries. One alleged attack was on Alice Lai-Bitker who is running for County Board of Supervisors in Alameda County. Her opponent Ralph ppezzato, a Caucasian, sent out campaign materials asking "What color is your supervisor?" and "Is it us or them?" Alice will be in a runoff with Ralph Appezzato this
coming November. Another alleged case involved Christopher Gabaldon, a Filipino Am. candidate running for State Assembly in CA's 18th District. Allegedly, his opponent insinuated that Gabaldon took money coming from the Philippines. Perhaps as a result of the insinuation, Gabaldon lost in the primary.

2) Why not let the APA candidates defend themselves?

It's difficult for APA candidates under racist attacks to defend themselves, because voters expect them to say that the attackers are wrong. If neutral bodies such as the mainstream media and 80-20 come to their defense, voters are much more likely to listen and vote against the racist attackers.

3) Why does 80-20 propose such a policy NOW?

Racist attacks on APA political candidates are expected to increase significantly, because more APAs are running for offices and the importance of the offices they seek are increasing.

4) Can you tell me about 80-20's policy in more detail?

First, the attacked candidate must file a request with 80-20 to investigate the alleged racist attack. In other words, 80-20 stays out unless a candidate asks for help.

If a written request is filed and if 80-20's findings support the allegations, then 80-20 will provided help. The degree of support depends on the flagrancy of the racist attacks.

In a clearly racist attack, 80-20 will use all within its power to defeat the racist candidate. 80-20's measures includes using its considerable ability to communicate quickly with 430,000 APA supporters and the mainstream media on behalf of the attacked candidate. It may also spend immediately up to $10,000 to support the attacked APA candidate or punish his/her racist opponent. Expenditure beyond $10,000 will require explicit approval by 80-20's Steering Committee in a case-by-case basis.

The worst racist attacks are normally mounted a day or two before the election so as to deny the APA candidate a chance to point out the racist nature of the attack to voters and to prevent outraged but previously uninvolved entities like the media and 80-20 from joining the fight against racism. 80-20 therefore resolves that, should a politician win the election by such devious means, 80-20 will target to defeat that politician in his/her next election.

Racist attacks are normally designed by high-priced political consultants, though it requires approval of the candidates to implement the attack. 80-20 aims to widely publicize the names of such unprincipled political consultants with the aim to drive them and their firms out of the political consultation business.

5) Will 80-20's policy stop racist attacks permanently?

Yes. When politicians and their consultants find out that a racial attack on any APA candidate anywhere will mean an invitation for 80-20 to come in and help defeat them in either this or the next election, then such attacks will stop. However, it
will take a few election cycles for the dire consequences of such attacks to get around in the political world.

The resolution, in its original wording, is available at:

A Student Saves Money to Pay 80-20 Dues


#################

If you have paid your dues and have NOT visited web page: http://www.80-20initiative.net/memberlist.html

yet, YOU MUST. If your name is NOT there, it may mean 80-20's
record is wrong, & you will NOT have a vote. ##################

All of us at 80-20 were moved by the following email correspondence:

(A) A Student E-Mailed To Suggest That 80-20 Institute A "Student Membership"
Of $15 Per Year:

Dear 80-20 Staff,

I have been on your e-mail list for a couple of years now, and am very

impressed with what the organization has become with your leadership
and direction. I want to contribute monetarily and becoming a voting member,
but like a lot of the folks on the e-mail list, I am still a student. I
suggest that you create a student membership ($15/year), so that folks
like myself can become an official member.

Respectfully Yours,

Harrison (last name withheld to avoid embarrassing the student)



(B) S. B. E-Mailed Back To Offer An Alternative Solution:

80-20 has considered setting student dues but decided against it because
a lot of students spend more than $35 during their weekends. In your case,
things may be different. Will you send me your address? I'd be glad
to send you a "thank you" gift of $20 personally. Then you
can pay the full fee. I'll do the same thing next year as well, until
you are not a student.

I am very moved by your e-mail. The next time we have a Steering
Comm. meeting, we'll discuss the matter of student dues again.

SB

(C) The Student Decides to Tighten His Belt & Pay Full Dues:

Dear Mr. Woo,

First, I want to thank you for responding to my e-mail. Second, I am
currently studying abroad in China until this June. Going over my semester
budget, I will be able to make the full membership dues 35. I hope
that you and your staff will keep up the great work because we

ARE making a difference.

Respectfully Yours,

Harrison

UNITY IS POWER - another example

Asian Pacific American college students and young professionals
e-mailed 80-20 asking it to take action. They were outraged because
Abercrombie & Fitch (A&F), an upscale retailer, put out a new line
of 4 T-shirts with derogatory portrayals of Asians.

80-20 called Michael Jeffries, Chairman and CEO of A&F this morning.
Two hours later, an executive with A&F responded to 80-20 by saying that those $25 T-shirts have been taken off the market.

80-20 wants to THANK all who e-mailed and assisted 80-20 in this matter. It also wants to applaud those who have already communicated their displeasure with A&F directly. Although 80-20 found those T-shirts offensive, it wants to commend Abercrombie & Fitch for its swift action in realizing its insensitivity and pulling the products immediately.

For those who want to know the events leading to this happy ending,
here is a brief description. One of A&F's new T-shirts depicts Asians with slanted eyes and conical hats. The T-shirt, with two Asian men at ``Wong Brothers Laundry Service,'' carries the logo: ``Two Wongs Can Make It White.'' Another T-shirt, called``Buddha Bash'' has a smiling Buddha figure with the logo: ``Get Your Buddha On The Floor.'' [Pictures of the two T-shirts are available at: http://www.80-20initiative.net/tshirts.html , if you want to view them. The pictures will be deleted in a week.]

APA youths began e-mailing 80-20 on Wednesday
asking 80-20 to take action. 80-20 investigated the matter and decided
to take action. At 10:50 a.m. this morning (Thursday), 80-20 president
S. B. Woo called A&F Chairman and CEO Michael Jeffries. Mr. Jefferies
was out of his office, so Woo left a message expressing the wish for A&F
to withdraw the products. He also requested a call back. About
two hours later, at 1:12 p.m., Mr. Seth Johnson, an executive with A&F
called back. He said that he was calling on behalf of Mr. Jeffries
who was not in town. He said that the products have been pulled off
the market, emphasizing however that the T-shirts were meant to add humor,
without intending to offend anyone. A&F is issuing a press release
to the Associated Press regarding the withdrawal of the T-shirts.
A HAPPY ENDING!

UNITY IS POWER. Here is but one good
example of many.

A New Immigration Bill May Shortchange You

Do you have elderly parents living abroad? If so, you need to pay keen attention to this 80-20 message.

For many working APAs whose parents live abroad, a lengthy visit by their parents every few years is the only viable option for FAMILY UNION.

That option will no longer be available to you in the NEW immigration policy. In the past such a visa was for "a minimum of 6 months." Now it will normally be for 30 days only. See http://www.ins.gov/graphics/publicaffairs/newsrels/visa.htm

The proposed new immigration policy aims to deter terrorism. Many are thoughtful provisions. However, some changes may be flawed. Hence, our Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) and the Sate Department are requesting public comments on the proposed changes until May 6. To comment on the proposed changes, you need to provide a reference number (INS no. 2176-01), if you are communicating with the INS. There are several ways:

(1) Write in triplicate (one original and two copies) to:
Director,
Policy Directives and Instructions Branch,
INS, 425 I Street, N.W., Room 4034,
Washington, D.C., 20536
Attention: Public Comment Clerk, and /or

(2) E-mail to insregs@usdoj.gov . You may also want to let the relevant officials in the Legislative Division of the Visa Services Section of the State Department know of your concerns by carbon-copying the following two e-mail addresses: visaregs@state.gov and harperbj@state.gov

SAMPLE e-mail/ letter:

Reference: INS Number 2176-01

Dear Director:

My parents are xx and yy years of age. They live in (Korea, India, Vietnam, China, ..). After saving money for x years for their trip to the US, I was hoping that they will be with my family for at least six months. The new policy may cut it down to 30 days.

Please consider the importance of FAMILY UNION as we combat terrorism.
If the norms of family life of many US citizens can be adversely affected because of a flawed provision in our new policy, then the terrorists would have won twice over.

Sincerely,

Name Job Title, (optional)
Home Address (optional but strongly advised)

Don't bother composing a great letter. Ultimately, it is the volume of the opposing e-mails/ letters that matters. On the other hand, don't just copy the sample letter, it may carry less weight. Briefly state your own reason.

80-20 is e-mailing this message to 430,000 APA households. Only 80-20 can provide such a service to the APA community. If you value 80-20's service, and you are NOT a member yet, please JOIN TODAY.

How "Internment" relates to us today

Mercury News of San Jose published a profoundly thoughtful article on internment and how it relates to us. For the full article see: http://www.bayarea.com/mld/mercurynews/news/local/2976198.htm

Some excerpts are provided below. Under the subtitle of "Contradiction seen" there are facts about the internment that are at once sobering and inspirational. Please read on.

INTERNMENT RE-ENACTMENT TO TEACH HISTORICAL LESSON
By Ken McLaughlin

.... On April 27, East Beach Street in Watsonville will look like a movie set, with vintage costumes, sedans and a police car -- even a Greyhound bus built six decades ago. The Mello Center for the Performing Arts will be turned into an internment camp replete with uniformed guards in watchtowers.

It was on April 27, 1942, that more than 1,100 Santa Cruz County residents -- among 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry on the West Coast -- were ordered to report to the veterans hall to be bused to the Salinas Assembly Center at the California Rodeo Grounds. They were then taken to a desolate desert camp in Poston, Ariz., where most lived out the war years behind barbed wire. The last train from Salinas left on the Fourth of July. .....

"It's taken Japanese-Americans more than 50 years to be able to do something like this,'' said Aptos historian Sandy Lydon, who has studied the internment for 35 years. "This is a sign of a mature, very self-assured community. It's not about laying out piles of guilt. It's about warning people how easily something like this can happen."

"And after the backlash against the Arab-American community after Sept. 11, it becomes even more poignant and relevant.'' ....

U.S. `had no choice'

Some local residents and U.S. veterans have griped that they're tired of hearing about the internment and would prefer to move on.

"Vet groups aren't too enthusiastic,'' said Jim Henegen, 67, first vice commander of Watsonville's American Legion post. ``America had no choice. We didn't know who was who.'' .....

Said Navy veteran Art Bailey, 78, of Watsonville: "At least we didn't line them up and kill them like they did our guys.'' ......

Contradiction seen

The well-known part of the story is that most Pajaro Valley residents did not want the Japanese and Japanese-Americans to return -- or even to participate in the U.S. military. Instead, they sent 15,000 telegrams to Congress to ask lawmakers to strip all people of Japanese ancestry of their American citizenship and "return'' them to Japan.

But, Hashimoto said, a lesser-known story is that a small minority of Pajaro Valley residents refused to go along. They spoke out against the internment in letters to the editor. They secretly stored the personal belongings in their attics. They argued -- years before the idea was popular -- that the internment was simply un-American.

Those residents -- attorneys such as John McCarthy, Phil Boyle and Stephen Wyckoff, as well as the Rev. Allan W. Geddes -- will be honored at the April 27 event. ......

The event also will tell the stories of local Japanese-American veterans who served in the U.S. Army's Military Intelligence Service and the 100th/42nd Regimental Combat Team, the most decorated unit in the U.S. Army's history.

The ceremony will close with a song from a choir of elderly Japanese and Japanese-American women: "God Bless America.'' (THE END)

You Made It Happen!

Thanks to YOU, 80-20 has won POLITICAL CLOUT for you and your children. Here are 3 examples.

1) 80-20 expressed its disappointment with the "American out-
shines Kwan ..." headline on 03/01/02. Two days later Seattle Times issued its second apology that was vastly different in its contents, tone and length from its first apology.

2) 80-20 demanded on 10/27/00 that an unscrupulous Republican political
TV ad fanning "yellow peril" be withdrawn, the next day it was withdrawn.

3) 80-20 appealed on 12/27/00 to the APA community to ask the Bush Administration to consider appointing an APA to its cabinet. Two days later Vice Pres. Cheney called Norman Mineta about his interest to serve as the Transportation Secretary.

Thanks to YOU, 80-20 is YOUR ORGANIZATION , not a play-thing of the
elite. 80-20's bylaws require that

1) all board members and officers are to be elected by dues-paying members
DIRECTLY,

2) only dues-paying members, who pay dues at least 2 months before the election, may run for office (being rich and famous is NOT qualification to become 80-20 leaders),

3) each elected offices must have AT LEAST TWO nominees (so that power is NOT passed to cronies), and

4) every elected position has a SHORT term limit.

There has NEVER been an org. like 80-20 in the APA community.
Join 80-20 for your children & grandchildren's sake.
