Re (Ref. = reference): Many of our alumni have gone on to greater (bigger and better) things.
From: Hoang Huu Phuoc
To: Alumni
[ref. =the written abbreviation of reference]
Dear all:
I have visited Mr HL’s site of our alumni
and read some of his postings.
I found a link to a voice message
by (of) a Cu Huy Ha Vu about his (lodging)
(to)suing Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dzung over (for) some “mistakes”.
As an elderly, I wish to share with you my following viewpoints (as followsas froman elder person) –since hewho is an elderly (assumed tolivemore years hence)
(
have) gains more experience”:


[
▪ The program is intended to provide medical care for elderly
/´ɛldɚli/ people.
(old or rather old : past middle age)
▪ an elderly couple
▪ providing care for the elderly (
elderly people)]
▪ Some people sue /´su:, BE ´sju:/ over the most minor things.
(
to sue = to use a legal process by which you try to get a court of law
to force a person, company, or organization
that has treated you unfairly or hurt you in some way
to give you something or to do something :
to bring a lawsuit against someone or something)
▪ They’re suing
for damages.
[=suing to get money for the unfair treatment, damage, etc., that they have suffered]
▪ His wife is suing
for divorce.
[=his wife has begun a legal process in order to get a divorce]
▪ They’re suing the company
for damages.
▪ She’s suing her husband
for divorce.]

1) We should not post anything of dubious sources, personalities, and purposes.
Here, that man Cu Huy Ha Vu is a wretched good-for-nothing (wretched)
as I have never heard of his name in any successful contribution
to either save this country
or (of) make it better academically and practically
(in a practical or academical way
- the short adjective comes before the long one).
Why
do I say he is a bastard good-for-nothing (bastard)?
Simply because he does not
learn about (understand - “Vietnamesenglish”) his very status /position (footing)!

[▪ The slums were filled with poor, wretched/´rɛtʃəd/ children.
(very unhappy, ill, etc.)
▪ I don't know what's wrong with her,
but she looks wretched.
▪ families living in wretched poverty
(very bad or unpleasant)
▪ the wretched conditions of the refugee camp
▪ How did we get into this wretched state of affairs?
wretched behavior
▪ What a wretched performance that was.
(very poor in quality or ability )
▪ That movie was positively wretched.
▪ I like Jane,
but I can't stand that
lazy good-for-nothing brother of hers.
(of no use or value)
▪ Her brother is a
lazy good-for-nothing.
▪ The loose stones made it difficult for me
to maintain/keep
my footing.
[=to avoid slipping or falling]
▪ He lost his footing and fell down the slope.

▪ a nation that is on a friendly footing with its neighbors
[=a nation that has friendly relations with its neighbors]
▪ They all started on an equal footing (with one another).
= They all started on the same footing.
[=none of them had an advantage when they started]
▪ put the business on a firm financial footing
▪ She received awards for her academic /ækə´dɛmɪk/ achievements/accomplishments.
(of or relating to
schools and education)
▪ I spent my academic career at one school.
▪ The board set tough academic standards for graduation.
▪ He was offered a teaching job and decided to return to academic life.
▪ His interest in sailing is purely
academic.
(having
no practical importance :
not involving or relating to anything real or practical)
He’s not a sailor himself.
▪ It was a question of only academic [=theoretical] interest.
▪ He’s not very
academic,
(
British English : good at studying and at passing exams :
good at academics)
but he’s good with his hands.
▪ He did well enough
academically to be accepted at many colleges.
▪ an academically gifted student
▪ The book appeals to
academics and to the general public.
(a person who is a teacher in a college or university )
▪ She excelled
at academics.
(
American English : courses of study taken at a school or college)
▪ He only cares about sports.
He has no interest in academics.

(,)
who
made (left to the mankind — mankind without “the”) the most humiliated chapter in the history of mankind

their uniforms, ammunitions and weapons
in such a shameful event of 30 April 1975)
could (has been able to) accomplish it,
except the
Vietnamese Communists (of Vietnam).

Cu Huy Ha Vu
and the like enjoyeda (the) luxurious life and good education
(whilst they are not really grown-ups) at their very young age,
and these kids think
that whatever they´ve learned from the West
should (must)be applied (what this country of) in Vietnam
(has to follow, respect, kowtow,andapply as it is or they are).
What is worthy then
as (when) this current economic recession
(including all the past economic crises)
is so exclusively born
e by the proud West?

2) The people of Vietnam are (automatically) traditionally agaisnt the “new” (?!).
I appreciate
a (the) great saying by (of) the great president of the great country USA
(“Do not ask what the country….’)
and
you (I) can take a lesson from it (that saying):
As /Once You Are Fighting (Fight) Against Your Own Country,
Or Keep On Asking
whether (Why) This Or (Why) That,
This (It) (this = what you´ve said /mentioned)would (Will) Never Be Great !(.)
I often yell
at (agaisnt) the anti-communists (mostly overseas Vietnamese — Vietkieus),
that if they
think (say)
the communist leaders of Vietnam cannot manage the country successfully,
just /please give me a name or (some) the names of “worthier” people
who
could (can).
Are they (those) –who being so frightened by (of) the then approaching Vietcongs had
(to run in tears and terror) to flee Vietnam in tears and terror(then now whilst)
and are currently living abroad /overseas in destitution (destitute in foreign countries) –
(have) for (so many) decades loudmouths (loud-mouthing)
about “
the (cruelty of) Vietnamese communists´ cruelty“, “stupid economic masterplans”,
“corruption”, “degraded human rights”
(,) and the like?
Do they — (those)who (having)did (contributing) absolutely nothing to the development of Vietnam(butnowhaving) now have the sheer (queer) “power”to (mastermind =to be the mastermind of something) lead (some people of) the younger generation of Vietnam?

3) My family is not communist.
Neither am I (am not a) communist myself.
I am a Vietnamese,
and I
know (understand) what a citizen should do to his country.
Vietnam has had so many enemies.
Whatever
positive (good thing) you think the goverment would (should) listen to (you),
please
(openly) tellthem it directly /openly.
If you dare not do that, it’s your fault.
Please do not feel
delighted (happy)
as (when) somebody (particularly those living abroad) is writing /writes something (anything) against this regime,and you then (you) forward the link as a “clever (careful)” act to shun your “responsibility”.
You may refer to this link to
learn about (see)
what I as a young teacher wrote
(to suggest),
suggesting
a (the) change ofthe images on the Vietnamese banknotes
to avoid using
only those (the paintings) of (only) President Ho Chi Minh
http://www.emotino.com/m.php?u=hoanghuuphuoc&p=17012.

If
over (in) the early “tough” (early) years of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam
such (those) people as (like) that wretched Cu Huy Ha Vu did not dare (not) say anything,
then you can
know it (understand) right away
that they are
merely (eternal) cowards,
and
(therefore you should not) they are thus not allowed (them)
to say (shout aloud anything) nothing in the name of “justice” or “human rights” or the like.
They
are serving some “big bosses” (just do the job of “slavesor) as“lacqueys /henchmen” (“hired squad” for some “big bosses)
for
(the payment in) US (D) dollars to be paid onto their own accounts abroad.
Only
for that (,) and nothing more.
In summary (a word), this is my warning (commitment)
that
whoever (whomsoever) dare to launch (rage) a war agaisnt this country
would (will) be surely smashed by my very own hands.
I
´ve already made this(clear of this) known
to all my friends and relatives living abroad.

[▪ She raged about the injustice of their decision.

▪ A storm was raging outside,
(to happen or continue in a destructive, violent, or intense way)

▪ The fire raged for hours.

So, please take my words and remove that posting,
and never forward the link
and any other
(similar) links of similar content (s) to anybody
living
around the world (in this wide wild world),
as (since) I would be (have spent more years) surviving (than) you in such a world,

I welcome
anybody /anyone (whomsover) who shares with me
the pride as contained herein:

    Trong nhiều bài viết của HHP , mình có cảm giác ông này hay ‘ đại ngôn ‘ , khoe chữ theo lối ‘ cả vú lấp miệng em ‘ nhưng thực tế lại khác hẳn mà quí bạn đọc tinh tường đã thấy . Ông ta dẫn mập mờ về sách Khổng Tử để đánh tiếng rằng “ta đây cũng uyên bác , cũng Đông Tây Kim Cổ ” nhưng thực chất là lòe bịp thôi , nếu người có đọc và nghiềm ngẫm Đạo Khổng thì không ai rồ dại như HHP trong việc lăng mạ ông DTQ , đến nỗi ông ta phải vội vàng cúi đầu nhận lỗi một cách chiếu lệ , láu cá như vậy . Chuyện thứ 2 : ông ta khoe tiếng Anh Mỹ cao siêu , ông ta chửi cả BBC sai chỗ này , hỏng chỗ kia vv , nhưng bạn đọc đã chỉ ra cái lỗi tối thiểu khi trình bày một văn bản hay thư tín bằng tiếng Anh -Mỹ , như tôi biết , sau chữ Dear …. là dấu ‘phẩy ‘ (,) , nếu để dấu hai chấm như vậy thì không ổn . Ông Phước , với cái ghế của mình , tưởng rằng ông nói cái gì , viết cái gì cũng khó ai dám cãi , nhưng ông không biết sau mỗi chiếc máy tính thì có rất nhiều bậc đáng kính , nhiều người chuyên sâu trên nhiều lãnh địa khác nhau nhưng họ không có thì giờ để cãi nhau với HHP , nhiều việc có ích hơn cho quốc gia đang cần họ đấy !
