Mr. Wang practices immigration law and is on the
executive committee of the Greater Cincinnati
Chinese Chamber of Commerce.
During (Federal Reserve Chairman) Ben
Bernanke's report to the U S. Senate on Jan.
18, he again voiced unease about the health
of Social Security and Medicare, in particular,
and of the federal deficit in general. Federal
spending for Social Security, Medicare and
Medicaid, while taking up 8 1/2 percent of the
Gross Domestic Product in 2006, is projected
to expand to roughly 15 percent of the GDP by
Bernanke warned that ''if early and meaningful
action is not taken, the U.S. economy could be
seriously weakened," and he added a dire
note of urgency by saying that the "right time to
start was about 10 years ago."
The answer, therefore, is to enlarge the
working tax base. This can be done by
increasing natural birth and waiting 18

|CITIZENS PROTEST WLW 700 AM
FOR MOCKING HISPANIC IMMIGRANTS
On 08/21/2007, a group of racially diverse citizens
gathered on the sidewalk along 8044 Montgomery
Road which houses the corporate offices of WLW
700 AM Radio to protest the racially insensitive
mocking of Spanish speaking immigrants that has
been airing under the "Speaking to an Illegal Alien"
motif on WLW. Earlier this year during May, the
Hispanic community was first insulted by the
"Big Juan" ads which had appeared on dozens of billboards around Cincinnati. This
billboard showed a stereotyped Mexican, two national flags of Mexico and a donkey
together with the words "THE BIG JUAN" and "700 WLW." After these were removed
because of complaints, Chuck Fredrick, local manager of WLW promised to refrain
from offensive programming. In August, the offensive radio segments were aired
without regard to the previous promise and this drew the public protest and demand
for disciplinary action against the programmer or programmers responsible. The
audio message made fun of anyone speaking Spanish as an illegal alien. WLW is a
station owned by Clear Channel. Organizations supporting the picket included
Catholic Social Action of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, the United Food &
Commercial Workers Local 1099, Cincinnati Inter-faith Workers Center, Unite Here,
the Japanese American Citizens League, the League of United Latin American
Citizens, Northern Kentucky University LULAC & Latino Affairs Office. To listen to the
