Making It in the USA

Presidential candidates Joe Biden and Chris Dodd, senators both, have just answered "Yes" to all the questions in the 80-20's questionnaire.

To see 80-20's questionnaire and their signed replies, please go to

What if ALL presidential candidates will do so? It will mean

(A) The next U.S. President will have promised to enforce Executive Order 11246 to break the glass ceilings for Asian Americans (AsAm).

   Benefit? Within 10 years, the number of AsAm managers, executives and administrators will double. Specifically, there will be about 150,000 ADDITIONAL Asian Ams promoted to the manager level or higher in private industries; about 5000 more AsAms promoted to department chairs or higher in universities; and about 400 more AsAms promoted to Senior Executive Service (SES) in the Federal government.

(B) The next U.S. President will nominate more AsAm judges until the number of AsAm Federal judges will triple in 4 years.

   Result? Besides the EXISTING six AsAm Federal judges who are all at the lowest District Court level, there will be about 20 AsAm Federal judges, some serving at the higher Appeals Court level. Even an AsAm Supreme Court justice could be in the mix. Benefit? A better chance at equal justice for us with AsAm judges in higher courts available to appeals!

   A rising tide raises all ships. The additional income and influence of having two times more managers/CEOs/administrators will generate huge ripples benefiting ALL AsAms. The economic benefits will spread from merchants in Korean/Indian/Japan/China/Vietnam/Filipino towns to everyone whose livelihood is connected to those towns. The socio-political benefit will help our youngsters fight higher admission bars. Above all, it will mean that Asian Americans have finally established the GROUP political clout to achieve EQUAL opportunity and justice for ourselves.

   Don't forget that Senator Biden is also the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. Senator Dodd is also the chairman of the Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs. Donate and volunteer for them! Go and

   The above replies are the beginning. Many more perfect replies will come, before the primaries of 2008. However, YOU must hold the line:

   Do NOT give any of the presidential candidates ANY support until he/she has answered 80-20's questionnaire satisfactorily.

   Don't shortchange your children's chance to live to the maximum of their potentials. Urge all candidates to reply to 80-20 ASAP.
