Re: A Comparison of Two Asian-American Organizations (2) In a message dated 6/29/2010 12:03:31 P.M. Pacific Daylight Time, writes: <> Nelson ============================== Dear Dr. Nelson, Tocayong Bobby and Friends: The difference between the NaFFAA and other Asian-American federations such as the Thais or the Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA) is that the NaFFAA is run by crooks while the other Asian-American entities are managed by well-meaning individuals. Please visit the NaFFAAgate Section of our website and read the various scandals scams being done by the scoundrels of the federation. The section's URL is The latest racket of the NaFFAA controlling clique is its "Overseas-Filipino Conference for Good Governance" that will be held in Metro Manila on July 1-2, 2010. The NaFFAA had to vacate a room it was renting at the OCA office for failure to pay the rental of $500 per month. The NaFFAA could not afford to pay the $500 rental per month but it could afford to sponsor the confab for Good Governance in Manila. No wonder the NaFFAA national-executive officers (NEOs) have the best rackets in town even if they do not play tennis. Perhaps the NaFFAA NEOs can form the Filipino-Am equivalent of the Thai Tennis Organization in America. LOL. Mabuhay, Lolo Bobby M.
