Live in Congressman Cox's District?

Do you live in Congressman Christopher Cox's California-47
district? Cox was the Chair of the committee that generated the infamous
1999 "Cox Report on US Security Concerns With China." For full text, visit:

If you reside in his district please reply to this e-mail with one word:
YES. 80-20 is doing a survey.

80-20 shares the NEGATIVE assessment of Stanford University's Center
for Int'l Security and Cooperation on the Cox Report. Its publication,
"The Cox Committee Report: An Assessment," is available at It stated:

"Thus an unfortunate effect of the exaggerated perception
generated by the Cox report about Chinese spying is a cloud of suspicion over both foreign and US national scientific and engineering staff members of US companies and labs of Asiatic background." (emphasis added)

If many 80-20 supporters reside in Cong. Cox's district and will STEP FORTH TO BE COUNTED, then 80-20 is confident that it can
find a way to prevent such "exaggerated perception" from being repeated by Mr. Cox and/or his committee in the future.

There is no free lunch

  • One organization states: "Political voice is not issuing
    press releases. It is the ability to reward politicians who share
    our rightful concerns, and punish those who don't."

    • That org. worked hard & got that done. In election 2000,
      it forced an unscrupulous TV political ad off the air in 1 day. It
      delivered a bloc vote. It induced the history appointment of APA
      cabinet members.

  • One org. promotes patriotism to pulverize our "permanent foreigner"

    • It worked hard & made a great start. New York Times, LA Times,
      Newsweek, Business Week, Boston Globe, San Jose Mercury, ABC, NBC,..., etc. reported its flag-project on July 4th, 2001. New York Governor and NY Times lauded Zhe Zeng -- "completely selfless person."

  • One org. wants to be an instrument OF THE COMMUNITY, BY THE COMMUNITY,
    AND FOR THE COMMUNITY; and never become the play-thing of selfish individuals.

It fought internal pressure & got it done. See its
bylaws that requires it to be democratic, transparent,
and "ruled by Law." None of its officers are paid.

There is no free lunch. If you want to see such an org. to
serve you, 80-20 is the ONLY org. of this kind in our community. YOU must
join that org. to help yourself & your children. If you have not joined
yet, please DO YOUR SHARE!

Protecting APA Scientists

80-20 moves to protect APA scientists/engineers from
improper government investigative tactics. At its Board meeting
in San Francisco on Feb. 2, the Board unanimously adopted a
proactive resolution. Please forward this e-mail to your
friends & relatives who are scientists/engineers.

Whereas, remarkable similarities exist in the recent overaggressive,
perhaps wrongful, government investigative tactics against Asian
Pacific American (APA) scientists, namely Dr. Wen Ho Lee and
Dr. Bin Han, and possibly a few others,

Whereas, the common thread of the two celebrated cases are: grossly
exaggerated initial government charges against the scientists,
followed by press leaks, then verbal threats to the accused of the
dire consequences the scientists would face, then groundless
objection to letting the accused out on bail, and finally utter
failure to prove the case in court,

Whereas, we are confident that such abusive government investiga-
tive tactics is not a general practice of our great nation, and

Whereas, 80-20's principal goal is to win equal justice and equal
opportunity for APAs,

Be it, therefore, resolved that upon the application of an Asian
Pacific American scientist/engineer, upon adjudication in court of a
verdict vastly against the original charges, and upon the verifica-
tion by an ad hoc 80-20 investigative committee that the govern-
ment investigative tactics seem grossly improper and/or possibly
racist, 80-20 shall offer to support the wronged scientist/engineer
in asking for compensation in damages, including but not limited to
filing as a "Friend of the Court" (amicus curiae) and/or financial
aid. Furthermore, 80-20 will use its political assets and communica-
tion prowess to press for the censure of the wrongful investigators.

You may recall that in 4/2002, 80-20 adopted a proactive resolution
to protect our political candidates against racist attacks by their
opponents, after two reported racist attacks. That resolution proved
to be 100% successful in the general election of 2002.

It's just another demonstration of the effectiveness of GROUP
political clout that 80-20 provides.

1/1 and ends on 12/31. There are 6 types of membership:

1. Basic (1 vote) -- $35
2. Family (Two names to get 2 votes) -- $50
