Chris is late
The Indians in India were waiting to welcome Chris Columbus
However Chris fucked up
he landed up in America
and found Red Indians
it was a nation of tribal people
a people who were in tune with nature
After Chris discovered this nation
Britishers landed up in huge numbers
to rape this nation
they killed or imprisoned the tribal people in reservations
and they plundered the land
they were the early American settlers
they created christian (?) laws
and law makers and the executive
the nation prospered
They did not take part in WWII
while the British nation and the Europeans did
they went into the war only after Pearl harbor
they had no choice
they ended the war by dropping the Atomic Bomb (WMD) on civilian targets
in Hiroshima and Nagasaki
and Germany already had surrendered earlier
Liberty Equality and Fraternity
was the declared state policy
while they used slave labor in their cotton fields
a Civil war happened btw the North and the South
and the slaves were set free
but they were not really free
meanwhile they welcomed immigrants such as Albert Einstein
and the immigrants built America to make it a great nation
-to be continued
Nashik: The spectre of closure hangs over several of the small-scale industries (SSls) here, a fortnight after MNS activists ransacked homes and drove out much of the migrant workforce from Nashik.The companies, which are heavily dependent on the skilled Uttar Bharatiya worker who slogs hard to send money home, are now under pressure from bigger firms to deliver spares on time or lose orders in future.
more attractive than the local youth for industries. They are not skilled at the entry level but they learn the tricks of the trade by sheer diligence over the years," Ahire said.Born and brought up in Nashik, the middle-aged Ahire said he would be most happy
PRICE OF VIOLENCE
Maharashtra police chief P S Pasricha on Monday said the total loss on account of loot and arson by MNS supporters in Nashik amounted to only Rs 6 lakh. He also said the state had replied to the queries of the State Human Rights Commission
,to recruit local boys in his factory, Machine House. "But they want high salaries and do not have the mindset to stick on the shop-floor for 8-10 hours at a stretch. In any case, they need time to acquire the skills of the workers who have left" Ahire said many companies were now working two shifts of 12 hours each instead
of three regular shifts of eight hours each. "We just hope that this cycle of violence stops and the workers report back to work soon. The Uttar Bharatiyas may come back after Holi," he hoped.Ashok Rajwade, managing director of auto ancillary major Hindustan Hardy Spicer, said the big players of the industry would not wait for the local vendors to get their act together forever. "They will go to the secondary sources in the Pune belt. The vendors in Pune, in turn, are sure to ask for guarantee of regular orders from the big industries who approach them in such a crisis," he said.Rajwade said the government should take control of the situation quickly to stop further damage to industries. "We have to deal with powercuts, high octroi, cess on fuel and a gamut of labour laws in Maharashtra. Now, if law and order also becomes a problem, then what is the logic of doing business here?" he questioned. firstname.lastname@example.org
Nashik: Ranjit Singh had come to Nashik from Jaunpur in Uttar Pradesh. The shop and the six "rooms" he built through a decade's hard work ensured that his ties with Nashik grew stronger than those with Jaunpur.Now, Singh is one of the scared "outsiders" in a city singed by hatred against people who have built-lr are trying to build-a life for themselves in Nashik. As politics takes precedence over economics, Singh may have to fold his bags and take the train back to UP, like the thousands who have left the neighbourhood of Dutt Nagar, a slum behind the Arnbad industrial area.Sitting outside his shop with downed shutters, Singh is too scared to speak about the atrocities unleashed by Raj Thackeray's goons. A mute witness to his brethren fleeing their single-room dwellings, he needs a lot of prodding to narrate the sordid tale."All of them have gone to UP and may never come back, while I continue to get threats every day from motorcycleborne youths who come in the dead of night," he said. "Every Maharashtrian here keeps track of what I'm doing." But why did the migrant workers living in Dutt Nagar leave despite their strong numbers?

Obama's recipe for curbing outsourcing
Sridhar Krishnaswami in Washington
'August 16, 2007 13:53 IST
Amid the ongoing debate over Outsourcing, a hot-button issue in the US, top Democratic Presidential hopeful Barack Obama has proposed denying tax reliefs to companies that ship job overseas but said that education system must improve to check the trend.
The first known inhabitants of the area now known as the United States are believed to have arrived over a period of several thousand years beginning approximately 20,000 years ago by crossing the Bering land bridge into Alaska. The first solid evidence of these cultures settling in what would become the US begins as early as 15,000 years ago with the Clovis culture.
Relatively little is known of these early settlers compared to the Europeans who colonized the area after the first voyage of navigator Christopher Columbus in 1492 for Spain. Columbus' men were also the first documented Old Worlders to land in the territory of the United States when they arrived in Puerto Rico during their second voyage in 1493. The first European known to set foot in the continental U.S. was Juan Ponce de León, who arrived in Florida in 1513, though there is some evidence suggesting that he may have been preceded by John Cabot in 1497.

Allow me a dose of hardened market realism concerning Barack Obama’s landslide victory in Wisconsin. The race is over. Hillary Clinton is over. Her electability is over. Bill Clinton’s political invincibility is over. The Clinton Restoration is over.
Obama got to the far left faster than Hillary did. He out-organized her, out-fundraised her, out-speechified her, out-hustled her, out-dressed her, and out-presidentialed her. He outbid Hillary for votes, one promised government check at a time. His 17-point margin of victory in Wisconsin was incredible. It says he can’t be stopped.
Outside of the whacko ultra-left Madison college population, which is even worse than the Ohio State population, Wisconsin is a lot like Ohio. And Ohio campuses will go for Obama. Think faculty voters, grimly determined for a left-wing takeover of America “from the bottom up,” to use the Saul Alinsky community-organizer phrase. As goes Wisconsin, so goes Ohio.
Not even Hillary’s last-minute bashing of business, free trade, and free-market capitalism — which was a complete repudiation of her husband’s presidency — could save her. Obama got there first, with a style and elegance that Hillary simply couldn’t match.
And it came out of nowhere. On the eve of the Wisconsin primary, Hillary did a hard-left imitation of John Edwards’s populist and demagogic soak-the-rich rhetoric. She trashed some of the greatest businesses in America — oil, credit-card, insurance, and pharmaceutical firms. Wall Street and lending firms. It all must have come as quite a shock to the alumni of the Bill Clinton White House who are working for her campaign.
Robert Rubin may have been too busy tending to Citigroup’s sub-prime collapse to keep Hillary on the reservation. But where were Wall Street’s Roger Altman and Washington’s Gene Sperling when Hillary discarded the pinstripes for the polyester lefty-union pantsuit?
Bashing business comes naturally to Obama. But for Hillary it was a complete failure. Exit polls from Wisconsin say the trade protectionists went with Obama. Union members? Obama. People who think the economy’s in trouble? Obama. Folks who don’t think it’s in trouble? Obama. People making less than $50,000 a year? Obama. More than $50,000 a year? Obama.
And it only gets worse.

WASHINGTON - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton did something Wednesday night that she almost never does. She apologized. And once she started, she didn't seem able to stop.
The New York senator, who is in a tight race with Illinois Sen. Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination, struck several sorry notes at an evening forum sponsored by the National Newspaper Publishers Association, a group of more than 200 black community newspapers across the country.
Her biggest apology came in response to a question about comments by her husband, Bill Clinton, after the South Carolina primary, which Obama won handily. Bill Clinton said Jesse Jackson also won South Carolina when he ran for president in 1984 and 1988, a comment many viewed as belittling Obama's success.
"I want to put that in context. You know I am sorry if anyone was offended. It was certainly not meant in any way to be offensive," Hillary Clinton said. "We can be proud of both Jesse Jackson and Senator Obama."
