Michael Jackson Fans AGAINST Peter King

by on Jul.06, 2009, under Organizations>Political Organizations>Political Action Committees

It is unbelievable that Peter King hates Michael Jackson so much that he has started to insult him even before he is buried. Some of Michael Jackson’s fans have set up a website “Michael Jackson Fans AGAINST Peter King” to raise money to defeat Peter King in his future campaigns for public offices.

Peter King seems to know neither music nor humanity. I don’t know how he can represent a whole district. What kind of a district is that?

His misinterpretation of Michael Jackson is, in a Chinese expression, “a small-minded person guessing a nobleman’s intention”.

By the way, Peter King happens to be most vocal in the opposition to the legalization of illegal immigrants. Is it just a coincidence?

World Can’t Wait

by on May.29, 2009, under Organizations>Political Organizations>Human Rights

Looking at the line of people in orange jumpsuits and black hoods,  surrounded by the media, winding their way through the evening commute crowd at Grand Central, I got excited. I knew them and I was supposed to join them and put an orange jumpsuit on. But I could not find them before they got into Grand Central. And I expected it to be another boring activism event.

Even more exciting was their live demo of water-boarding on the street after the protest at Grand Central. And the guy in the demo really got water-boarded even though they tried not to really let water get into his nose.

These protests are organized by World Can’t Wait. Click on the name to see their website and find out what they are about.

It is amazing that their members have so much energy to pursue something that does not have much to do with their personal life other than their dignity and proud as Americans.

Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee

I am not able to understand Lyndon LaRouche’s theories very well because I do not have the knowledge in economics to understand them. But I have gradually come to realize that what he has been saying about the global financial system is true. Here is the web site of Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee.

Please check out their web site for more information and event schedule.

I just went to one of their events for the Agent Orange Campaign. The speaker was a doctor from Vietnam who had first hand knowledge on the issue. The attorney who has been working on the case on behalf of Vietnamese Agent Orange victims was also there. He was able to provide legal and political perspectives of the issue, supplementing the medical and environmental perspectives of the issue that the doctor provided. And very surprisingly, John Kerry’s sister Peggy Kerry was at the event and briefly spoke, showing her support and pledging to help the cause.
