(BBC-US)   When asked about fathering a child in Vietnam, veterans' responses range from making it their life mission to find them to hanging up the phone yelling "I don't know you. Who is this? I'm hanging up the phone! Prank caller, prank caller!"   (bbc.com) divider line 45

Well, don't talk about drug sh*t on a cellular phone.

Yea, about those 100k children fathered by Americans.

And everywhere I traveled, from the Gap at Kummaree
To the Yong-San Reservation to the camps at Moonsonee
From the golden plains of Inchon, my boots rotting on my feet,
All I heard were crying babies while their mothers walked the street.

We bought watches, we bought cameras, we bought whores, and we bought booze;
With the little barefoot beggars bending down to shine our shoes
We gave them back our candy, and to answer our desire,
Oh, we gave them round-eyed babies who died outside the wire.

I got off in Seattle, and I climbed on board a train,
I rode it through the mountains with a fever in my brain.
I could find no reason to remain here any more,
Oh, there was no sign around me of the life I'd lived before.

Why do people always post this? Wasn't this a picture of when a civilian craft carrying an escaped officer and his children had to make an emergency landing on the deck of a carrier, so they quickly pushed everything on deck off into the ocean to clear room for him to land (which he then did), saving all of their lives?

I worked with a Vietnamese guy whose father was a Colonel in their Air Force. His father flew the family out to a US aircraft carrier, but he said they didn't push it off the ship, someone else got in it and went back for more people.

If Jane Fonda taught us anything about the Vietnam War, it's that the propaganda artists don't give a damn about facts.

Incredibly sad that this guy didn't get to have a relationship with his son all those years.

Also sad that the VietCong went around killing any kid they thought was half American and the citizens had to destroy any evidence of US ties and/or had to disappear just to avoid being killed.

Just think if the Dad had found him decades ago - his son wouldn't have received all the housing, grants, educational, and job benefits he got by being a refugee. He would have come to the states as Jerry's son, the dark haired bastard stepchild of a redheaded family with no ties to his Vietnamese culture. Jerry might have been visiting his son in prison or at a grave site. Karma isn't always a biatch.

I'm so curious about this jackpot Americans seem to believe refugees hit when they arrive in the U.S. Particularly as I've been teaching refugee students and their families for the past six years. Not long ago I attended the funeral of a former student who survived the refugee camps of Thailand only to be shot five times by some punk-ass while taking out the trash.

The men in his family work in chicken processing plants, in some of the most disgusting and inhumane working conditions imaginable for $7 an hour. Within 2-3 years, they're crippled due to severe repetitive motion injuries, and have no medical insurance and no recourse within the company towns where they live. The women scrape by trying to find temporary cleaning jobs, sometimes in the same factories where their sons become old men by the age of 25.

The youngest children. If they're very lucky and get here early enough, have a shot at an education. Not a great one, because refugees are settled in the cheapest and most dangerous neighborhoods, so the schools tend not to be great. To call their housing, which, after a few short months they must pay for entirely on their own, "substandard" is laughable. We're talking houses without working heat, houses with black mold growing on the walls, houses with broken-out windows and doors which don't lock.

I've seen refugees in Minnesota, sponsored by the Mormon church, walking to school and work in flip-flops and t-shirts - in November. Oh, and that's the price of admission to the U.S., by the way. Give up your Buddhist or Animist beliefs, or your agnosticism or atheism to become a Mormon or evangelical Christian. A church organization promises to sponsor your family, and they do - at the very lowest possible cost to them and for only a short time if you don't get with their program.

I have one good thing to say about the LDS church: they buried one of the sweetest, gentlest, young men whom I've ever known after he was murdered in cold blood taking out the trash for his mother. He bled out in the kitchen, in front of his parents and his three younger siblings. Welcome to America.

That's not a very cool story, bro.

But you should know that most immigrants and refugees here get all kinds of free shiat from the government.   My uncle sent me an email about it.   He's an unemployed tomato picker in Georgia, so he knows about these things.

Similar, Hank's half bro was Japanese and more successful.

My dad served during Vietnam, but in Germany.  So if he left any bastards anywhere, they likely weren't treated as badly and now driving a Merc.

However, this is the most disgusting thing a traveling army can do.  It's bad enough to have to fight on there homeland, but leave a mouth to be fed, and not care what becomes of the kid.  I consider that worse than the piece of crap that left my stepson behind.  At least my stepson isn't living in a region that hates him for being bi-racial.

My American Father and step-Mom don't know it but I've been living in a hole in their back yard for five years. When I am bored I call them on my cellphone and pretend I'm selling timeshares. I've been shopping a reality show idea around Hollywood on spec.  The working title is KIDS IN AMERIKA. It's about guys like me who live i your backyards, your houses, your garden sheds, even your car trunk. There are more of us than you can imagine. We are everywhere, stealing your cable and anything else you lay down for a moment. I have a collection of TV remotes that could have made me rich if it weren't for the Internet.
 
2014-04-28 07:37:14 PM
This kid keeps hacking into my iPod and trying to sell me a reality show about war babies who live with their Yankee fathers unbeknownst to their deaf and half-blind Dads, but it's too close to the sitcom we have in production about the aliens who live under Denver Airport. We stole most of the details from Neverwhere, The Alien from LA and Super Mario Brothers the Movie not the Game so we are paying this little pest nada.

That's the funny thing about Karma. Here this man's son didn't ask to come to this country during the 70's and early 80's, but did and reaped the rewards we had at that time. Others want to come to this country now and find they haven't escaped, but traded one hell for another. Instead of Eastern philosophy let'shiat western - day late and dollar short? .

My dad never talked about the war when we were growing up.  He started to mellow a bit as he got older though.  My brother told me once about how he and Dad were watching tv when Dad blurted out of the blue, "You know, you may have some siblings in Vietnam that none of us know about."

Thanks Dad.
