I’m an immigrant myself. It was a tough road to come to America and work.
I wish America would stop judging and criticizing teens and instead, try to understand the battles they have to fight every day.

It’s just the way it is. The sky is blue, the sun is bright, and Aspen endlessly loves America. It’s how the world was designed to be.
America Singer, you get back here." He ran in front of me, wrapping an arm around my waist as we stood, chest to chest. "Tell me," he whispered. I pinched my lips together. "Fine, then I shall have to rely on other means of communication." Without any warning, he kissed me.
Just head over to the risers, Lady America," she said. "You may sit anywhere you like. So you know, most of the girls have already claimed the front row." She looked sorry for me, as if she were delivering bad news. "Oh, thank you," I said, and went happily to take a seat in the back.
America, I don’t think you can change history." All the same, his expression looked hopeful. "Sure we can. Besides, who’d ever know about it but you and me?
I love you, America Singer. As long as I live, I’ll love you." There was some deep emotion in his voice, and it caught me off guard. "I love you, Aspen. You’ll always be my prince.
He stood and went to read my pin as I approached. “America, is it?” he said, a smile playing on his lips. “Yes, it is. And I know I’ve heard your name before, but could you remind me?
A lot of things are yours, America
On my visits to America, I discovered that the old Marxist dictum, "From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs," was probably more in force in America-that holy of holies of capitalism-than in any other country in the world.
From an early age I was aware of what America meant, and how the Marines at Camp Pendleton were ready to defend us at a moment’s notice. I also remember what fabulous bodies those troops had.

Miss America gets a lot of flak, but the reality is that it is uplifting and aspirational – 50% percent of my points were based on talent.

There’s something about winning Miss America that brings out the snark.
I might even pursue a career in politics. If I do, I will have had great practice dealing with the avalanche of daily criticism from working at Fox News and being a former Miss America. I’m ready for anything!
One of my Miss America judges called me a "God-clutcher" way back when because I spoke about my faith being an important part of my life during my interview.
I joke that I reached the bimbo trifecta when I came to Fox News! In being a former Miss America, being blonde and then Fox.

Now the 21st century approaches and with it the inevitability of change.

If not, alas, the nation’s future will be shaped by sightless forces of history over which Americans will have no control.
I got into radio when I was eight, and I was one of the busiest child dramatic actors in America.
America was founded by puritans and like it or not the anti-pleasure dogma of those buckled-shoed killjoys still pervades our collective unconscious like an I-max shot of Dennis Franz’s naked hairy cop ass. Hence, anything enjoyable is automatically forbidden and bad and in our panic to avoid it at all cost we become obsessed with it… like dressing up in a pink teddy and a pair of ugboots and repeatedly screaming the word ‘VERBOTEN!’ into a conk shell balanced on the back on a miniature pony… Oh, I see.. That would just be me.
