You idiot. It is not about most qualified. It is about Indians working for almost nothing. I do not think it is a good thing to export American jobs to a unstable country like India and exploit the pople as slave labor.

Let me try once more. Excuse my Slayerwine-esque stupidity:

Last post was supposed to be
That's the spirit Slayerwine!

Keep trying to make people angry with contrived and lame attempts at comedy! Maybe one day I might actually find them insulting and funny at the same time.

BTW, for your information (I don't know why I'm even trying), I'm not a socialist/commie/anarchist.

43%: Yes, I know, but that is still just global capitalism. It just seems that sometimes the all out pro-capitalists hold it holy until suddenly it works against them and then they want to throw up the protective barriers. This is not necessarily aimed at you personally, by the way.
I am at a large, public university remember? Almost all of our Indian students go right into computer science (usually after attaining at least an undergraduate degree in engineering and/or computers in India). Our International Admissions office is currently actively recruiting Indians--which we don't really do for any other countries. I don't know how cheap it is though...they have to prove that they have $30,000 in liquid assets to set foot on the university.
2001-12-27 12:12:48 PM  

Please read the post from "43%" earlier in this thread! This is fact all around the country. Indians take American jobs, especially in the software industry. Not because they are more qualified but because they work for next to nothing.
2001-12-27 12:15:24 PM  
quite a stretch to blame Bush on the trigger happy exploits of the third world.
It's convenient to do so for the one-way thought process folks.
Here is a thought-Blame everything in the world on Bush and America, and ignore all the evil people in the world who actually pull the trigger, starve the people, etc., so they can keep on eroding society for the political agenda of socialist drones incapable of independent critical thought.

WC: True, it is capitalism. on that note, though, if india obliterates itself in a nuclear war, advantage America.
2001-12-27 12:18:07 PM  

If you look hard enough, you can always blame something on somebody. People have a particular agenda against one person or one country. They will spin and twist the facts to blame that person.

Look at newsmax and how the blame clinton.

Look at Rei WorldCitizen and Harmonia and how they blame america.

It's comical.
2001-12-27 12:19:09 PM  
Rock: That is called free market capitalism. Sorry, but that's what it is. If you don't like it, then maybe you should look into some other economic system. I know how much you like the socialists, so I really don't know what your other options are.
Companies aren't going to hire them (especially in the tech industry where most of them are employed) if they don't think that they are qualified for the job, not matter how little pay they expect. It would be foolish for the company to save money just to have their company not function competitively. If they find a truely talented American that can make profit for their company, they will pay the price for him/her. The only way to stop it would be to put the breaks on global free market capitalism, or require a government sponsored minimum wage by profession (again, not exactly free market capitalism). So which is it--competitive capitalism or some sort of government control?

One thing's for sure. Allah does a piss poor job protecting his people and punishing the infadels. Arab countries are the social and economic armpit of the world, rivaled only possibly by the southern US, and anybody with some cruise missiles and bombers and come in and take what they want.

Aw, look. The extremely mature man/child Fb- is throwing insults at me. Ouch...make him stop, mommy.

>>>>Harmonia: GWB's stratagy for stopping violence working well I see. Anyone know where I can pick up a fallout shelter?

There you go again, Hormone-ia (Whormonia?), glanding instead of thinking. GWB's strategy for stopping violence AGAINST AMERICANS has worked just fine, so far. As far as the Pakistanis and the Indians are concerned, I personally could care less.

BTW, this little mano-a-mano FTF between India and Pakistan is just the latest of many, going back to when they were both founded. Only difference now is that they both have nukes. Now just exactly HOW is that GWB's fault?
2001-12-27 12:23:23 PM  

When did I ever insult you?
2001-12-27 12:23:58 PM  
I do believe that America should protect its workers. Many other Americans do too. If you consider it Anti-capitalism that is fine. Many other countries protect their workers against the offshoring of good jobs. So should America.

Rockandroller - I was simply saying that there will always be some person or group of people willing to do your job for cheaper. If it wasnt the asians it'd be the french or someone (no offence)
2001-12-27 12:26:07 PM  
actually, if the code coming out of Bangalore is any indication, cheap indian coders produce crappy code (broooaad generalization). Software companies will hire cheaper labor because HR doesnt know any better, and if the product barely works, it can still be sold (think M$).

So, as far as software engineering is concerned, it may be more of a "take some farking pride in your products" as opposed to "revamp global capitalism"

Going back to someone's question about the global environmental impact of a nuclear war between India and Pakistan--it probably wouldn't be much. From what I understand, they only have a handful of weapons that are around our Hiroshima type strength. Unless they've done some amazingly rapid development since they're only relatively recent underground testing, the environmental effects outside the region would not be all that great. I mean, Hiroshima and Nagasaki were nothing compared to just one hydrogen bomb tested by the Soviets and Americans, and we're all still here. From what I understand they have now, they would not even be able to wipe each other out...just a few major cities and a battlefield or two.

Uh, how many major cities are there in that area? Most of them are crime and poverty ridden anyway...

God, I can't get "braking", "their vs they're" or anything else right today. I blame it on my strong feeling that I should still be on Christmas vacation and not actually thinking about anything but eggnog.

>>>>>Harmonia: Pakistan has been played for the fool. Given aid by the west to defeat the Taleban and now its next in the firing line. 2/1 Osama shows up there giving the US an opportunity to join in.

FYI, Pakistan - or rather the radical Islamic schools in Pakistan that have been turning out suicidal fanatics for the last 30 years - has been behind most of the terrorist activity directed against everyone else, INCLUDING other Arab countries. The fanatics have now infiltrated the Pakistan government to the highest levels. Frankly, I'm greatly in favor of Pakistan being on the "do-list": Pakistan, Iraq, Somolia, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, and severzl others.

It's time that radical Islam takes a seat next to the other great dead religions.
2001-12-27 12:36:44 PM  

GWB has given the "green light" to no one so as to carry out indisciminate acts of violence as you have implied.

He's presently on a righteous crusade against terrorism against the United States -- the country he is constitutionally obligated to defend.

You merely imagine this so-called "green light" to violence because you have an eternal "red light" burning in your fervid cranium whenever you see the U.S. or anyone in a position of authority attempting to do the right thing.

Believe me, India and Pakistan need NO reason to sabre-rattle at this point in time. It's almost second nature to these two belligerents.

Of course, any and ALL "violence" throughout the world will now be attributed to GWB -- from YOUR point of view. So be it.
2001-12-27 12:36:45 PM  
Lot's o' major cities. India has one billion people packed into a land area about the size of the US east of the Mississippi. That makes for a lot of large, urban areas.
According the the CIA World Factbook, Pakistan is slightly less than twice the size of California and has 145 million people (CA has 30 million). Looks like that would make for some urban crowding as well. I'd say lots of ripe targets to take out lots of people with one bomb.
2001-12-27 12:36:48 PM  
Sounds like it's about time, to me.

Let both sides kill each other. There's so farking many of them that they can't feed themselves anyway.

fark, let's help 'em out. We can loft a few hundred spare warheads on them to get the ball rolling.

Two kids fight in the playground. The crowd bickers about who's fault it is. Not one of them accuses either of the kids involved in the fight as being the aggressor. Instead they blame other kids, parents, financial status, etc. Silly.
2001-12-27 12:42:01 PM  
Rock: "If you consider it Anti-capitalism that is fine."

And it is anti-capitalism. I'm not exactly the great defender of capitalism...I just wanted to make sure that you (as one who has previously stated that they want no government intervention/socialism) realized that you were arguing against one of the key points of capitalism and for government intervention on the market.
2001-12-27 12:42:12 PM  
My great hope in all of this is that we're finally getting WWIII off the ground. It is so overdue.

I am for an economic system that best serves the American people and the American workers. I have never said I am for lassaeiz-faire, (sp?), capitalism. I merely said I was against full scale socialism.

2001-12-27 12:51:49 PM  
Um.. folks, its not exactly very smart to be actively wishing for these f*ckheads to use nukes on each other, whether they work for peanuts or are smelly or no.

Even when volcanoes blow up, like mt St Helens or Krakatoa, the ash clouds encircle the earth. A multi-nuke engagement will be of comparitive effect.

If these stupid twats nuke each other, the radiation will not linger around their smelly stinking crater, it will piss out into the atmosphere of the planet, thereby making us all very sick and mutated. The Chernobyl disaster in the 80s sent a cloud of radiation out over the UK, which is why we have Keith Chegwin.

Need I remind everyone that this is not a good thing?

Let's try to convince them to use conventional weapons instead, eh?
2001-12-27 12:52:01 PM  

That site you posted showed no evidence of massacre. All it showed was a few dead (who may actually be Indians).

And also, please dont use the word massacre so easily. When most people think of massacre, they think of the Jewish holocoust (6 Mil) and WWII and the Russian dead (20 Mil).

If the Kasmiris want to be Islamic (and thus Independent from a non-Islamic state), they should just go to Pakistan where they will be welcomed and safe. But appearantly, they don't have as bad as you say (if it was that bad, I would have left (I left Turkey - and it was only a little bad)).

Also, I hope they get this resolved peacufully, no need for anyone to die. Indians are one of the most polite and nice people's I've been lucky enough to be friends with. And the Pakis, I wouln't ever turn my back to them, but I don't want them to get hurt either.

Maybe they should just build a big wall (Like in China?) and ban all travel between their countries. I dont know...

2001-12-27 01:03:36 PM  
Brade, take my advice and hush up. You're stereotyping people and blindly refusing to believe evidence which has been confirmed by independant sources. Why should the Kashmiri's move from their land? You make no sense or come up with a real alternative. You're just another stereotyping racist loser showing up in this thread.
