John Paul Stevens, 84 years old.
Sandra Day O'Connor, 74 years old.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 71 years old.
A NY Times opinion piece asked in its title: "Imagining America if
George Bush Chose the Supreme Court."
For Asian Americans (AsAms), there is a more threatening issue.
When Pres. Roosevelt ordered during WWII the internment of ALL
Japanese Ams in the continental USA, Fred Korematsu challenged the
order all the way up to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court ruled
that he and ALL Japanese Ams. be interned while only those Italian
and German Ams. who were suspected of espionage were also

[E] HOW 80-20 USES CARROTS & STICKS
1. For about 3 yrs. & 9 months, 80-20 is NON-partisan.
2. After 80-20 has endorsed, it is VERY partisan in favor of the
3. endorsed candidate. That is when 80-20 rewards & punishes.
4. After the election, 80-20 is again NON-partisan.
Why? Carrots & sticks! That is the ONLY way to induce the two
political parties to COMPETE to serve the rightful interests of Asian
Americans. WE punish the party enough that ignores us. It'll learn
NOT TO IGNORE US again. UNITY IS POWER. Vote as a bloc.
