This is hard to understand.
Asian Americans are generally very well educated. They are smart people, and are the highest wage earners in America.
In the last election, Trump made it pretty clear he was against illegal immigration, and wanted to build a wall to keep illegal immigrants out. Biden made it pretty obvious he was for it, and has in fact admitted around seven million more during his first three years in office. The Asian community in Chicago heard this, and 87% of them voted for Biden. It was their choice to make.
Now, three years later they are fed up with being flooded by illegal aliens, and now the mayor they voted for wants to convert a park into "temporary housing" for 30,000 illegal aliens. So they are protesting and demonstrating against something they voted for.
freedomfirst1797: Microsoft News gets it wrong.
American playfight and lyricist Tom Jones died today at age 95. Microsoft News reported the story with the correct links, but ran a photo of Tom Jones the 83 year old Welsh pop singer instead. And Sir Tom is still very much alive.
This is what happens when baby boomers retire, and get replaced by youngsters who never heard of EITHER Tom Jones!
freedomfirst1797: I agree Gerald. It really would be wonderful if we could all hold hands and sing "kumbaya." But is it even possible when Russia keeps invading their neighbors, killing women and children, and leveling entire cities? Is it wrong for people to fight back? What solution do the pop singers have, other than bland homilies about us all having "the same biology?"

freedomfirst1797: @vstargal... the GOP is not the party of violence. Unfortunately some Republicans have embraced it when they saw how well it worked for the Democrats and became frustrated at the results they were getting with logic, reason and non-violence.
The Democrats have historically used violence to intimidate their political enemies, and a few Republicans now want to "fight fire with fire." You and I might not agree with this, but it is an inevitable consequence when violence works so well.
Just in case anyone denies this, please consider WHO created the KKK to keep black people from voting? And WHO was supporting riots and lootings and defunding the police? Precisely WHO was using cattle prods, fire hoses and police dogs on Civil Rights Protestors? Were those people Republicans or Democrats?
So it should not shock anyone that after two hundred years of people on the left using violent mean to get whatever they wanted, that a few people on the right would adopt those practices too. Mostly out of frustration and anger, and mostly knowing it isn't a good solution.
The Trump Cult is angry and frustrated now, because they truly believe the last election was stolen. And this is despite them being unable to prove it in any court of law. They just know "Trump really won." They accept it on faith, because Trump said so, and because that is how cults work.

DARTHRAIDERXXX88: Freedom I agree that anything coupled with violence, from either party, will never solve anything. Does " 1861 Civil War " ring a bell ? The Democrats have become radical Marxist, which is evident in their agenda. The GOP has 3 factions not 2. RINOs, Non Trumpers, and Trumpers. There is no such thing as the Cult of Trump. When we start calling out a parties choice as a Cult, I can easily call the Non Trumper a Cultist as well, and or a RINO the Cult of the RINO. Colorful Metaphors have never solved anything either. The GOP needs to unite under a majority candidate, and not try to divide the party, in my opinion, especially when Democrat’s have been taken over by radical Left Marxists dedicated to transforming America into a Socialist state. Our freedoms are being destroyed right in front of us. Under a weak President they are executing a longstanding skillful plan with success. They never quit. Weak Republican’s have little will to fight, if they are a divided party. Now is the time to unite under one Majority candidate, and stop this division. The radical left’s core beliefs are a universe of lies. The “end justifies the means” is the key maxim. Repeat the big lie over and over and it sinks in. Hitler and Socialist tyrants mastered it. No lie too big. This universe of lies has repeatedly destroyed economies of once thriving countries. People don’t flee to Venezuela, Cuba, Russia North Korea, China. They risk themselves to come here. So this is why the GOP must unite, and battle the Marxist Democrat. This is why the Democrats are beating us. Let’s stop pretending that Biden didn’t eliminate thousands of jobs by cancelling our own pipelines, making us energy dependent again. Let’s stop pretending that the relatively tight border that Trump left hasn’t been devastated by Biden’s out loud welcome to illegal aliens. Let’s stop pretending that cities long run by Democrats’ have turned into crime and killing centers while Biden blames legal gun dealers. As if criminals purchase their guns legally. THE GOP MUST UNITE !!!
A Meeskite: Darth, your post makes a lot of sense. Someone needs to put a muzzle on Trump,..... something to close his BIG MOUTH. His attacking DeSantis has divided the party to the extent that it puts prevailng in 2024 in jeopardy. He has accomplished absolutely nothing as he airs his dirty laundry in public. He needs to get a clue here, he ought to be spending his time attacking Biden and his abyssmal record as President, and lay off DeSantis for the good of the party, I seriously doubt this will happen, however, because Trump's over-inflated ego wion't allow him to do it.
That being said, if DeSantis chooses not to run for the 2024 Republican nomination for
President, I will turn my efforts to supporting Trump, as I did in the previous two elections.
Yes he has a BIG MOUTH, his recent faux pas was his comments regarding DA Bragg,
featuring the baseball bat, didn't help his wanting to get elected to office again, whatsoever.....the American public were collectively unamused.
Yes Darth, the Republican party MUST UNITE or this country will have to suffer ANOTHER 4 years under the Liberal Marxist rule being force-fed down our throats
by Joe Biden (I have a LOT of descriptive adjectives for him which I will refrain from using at this time) and his incompetent regime.
DARTHRAIDERXXX88 in reply to A Meeskite: A Meeskite, indeed, the in party bickering has got to stop. It only strengthens the Democrats, and makes us look like fools. I support what Trump did for our country while in office #1 Unprecedented Economic Boom, #2 Delivered a future of greater promise and opportunity for citizens of all backgrounds, #3 Brought jobs, factories, and industries back to the USA, #4 Hit record stock market numbers and record 401ks, #5 Rebuilding and investing in rural America, #6 Achieved a record-setting economic comeback by rejecting blanket lockdowns, #7 Passed $3.2 trillion in historic tax relief and reformed the tax code, #8 Ended the regulatory assault on American Businesses and Workers, #9 Successfully rolled back burdensome regulatory overreach, #10 Americans had more money in their pocket under Trump, do they now ? #11Secured historic trade deals to defend American workers,#12 Took strong actions to confront unfair trade practices and put America First, #13 Historic support for American farmers, #14 Unleashed America’s oil and natural gas potential, and we actually became a NET energy exporter, with Gas prices lower in the USA, how about today ? #15 Increased access to our country’s abundant natural resources in order to achieve energy independence, how about today ? ( NO MORE FRACKING ) , #16 Affordable and high-quality Child Care for American workers and their families, what happened to the Child Credit today ? People getting screwed in their taxes, #17 Preserved American jobs for American workers and rejected the importation of cheap foreign labor. I am not going to even go into his Covid response. Is he a Pompaus ass ? Of course he is, but will I trade this for the accomplishments and economy he made for our country ? You damn right I will. I am not going to fall prey to the the Liberal Socialist Mainstream media is pushing down our throats, nor am I going to be swayed to divide my party, when we already had a President that had accomplished so much for our country. It is time for the blinded Americans to stop this sensitivity to Trumps brashness, and realize what he actually did for our country. Nuff said, and thank you for reading.
freedomfirst1797: Why are all these people wearing Obama tee shirts in their criminal mugshots?
freedomfirst1797: As of March 17, 2023 the Russians have lost 162,560 of their sons, husbands, fathers and brothers in their genocidal war against Ukraine. How many more widows, orphans, and grieving mothers does Russia need to annex a few more provinces?
Only the Russian people will get to decide that question.
DARTHRAIDERXXX88: When we stop supporting the Ukraine, it will end. With Poland ( a NATO country ) getting into the mix. many consider it a World War already. Time for the USA to focus on itself once again. No money should be sent to any country, so long as we have starving Americans on the street, and Vets

Mr Bluster: If you look it up.. gas in May 2020 was selling for 99 cents a gallon in some areas. A barrel of oil was negative $10. It was the start of the pandemic,, not many people were driving,, lots of supply and no demand. Basic economics.
