A Nation of Sexed Up Priorities

The contemporary obfuscation of fiscal sodomy  “We don’t need more sex – we’re already being fucked constantly by Wall Street and the government.” - Jean Sheridan, resident of Evanston, Illinois. “Murder is an individual crime, mostly isolated – financial murder is mass murder,so why not capital punishment? ‘Capital crime’ is what financial crooks pursue, in the hope that risk becomes manageable, and ‘capital punishment’ should be its consequence. This is no pun, nor is it onomatopoeic…” Financial Blogger, 2010 Before I proceed, here’s a brief legal description of sodomy: [sodomy n. anal copulation by a man inserting his penis in the anus either of another man or a woman. If accomplished by force, without consent, or with someone incapable of consent, sodomy is a felony in all states in the same way that rape is. … Read entire article »

Do the UN, and India deserve each other?!

No representation for 1.2 billion Indians on the UN Security Council “Any Human Rights Council reform that allows countries with despicable human rights records to remain as members, such as Libya, Iran, Syria, China and Saudi Arabia, is not real reform.” - Michael McCaul, US Congressman from Texas “Hezbollah-Controlled Lebanon now presides over the UN Security Council. This means, in effect, that a terror organization presides over a body entrusted with guaranteeing the world’s security. You couldn’t make this thing up.” - Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel “Do not reveal what you have thought upon doing, but by wise council keep it secret being determined to carry it into execution.” - Chanakya, 370-283 BC – Council to Emperor Chandragupta Maurya, 340-293 BC, and author of the seminal “Arthasastra.” Recently, our dear family friend, a brilliant cardiologist, … Read entire article »

A Middle-East Democracy; The Perfect Oxymoron!

What is really ‘The Arab Spring,’ their hope or ours? “… democracy is a product of western culture, and it cannot be applied to the Middle East which has a different cultural, religious, sociological and historical background.” - Tayyip Erdogan,PM of Turkey, 2003-present Cultures are wrought over centuries. A culture evolves, develops and calcifies slowly over generations with rote reinforcement of a set of tangible and intangible values. In fact, what you continuously choose, eventually metastasizes into your genes. This hypothesis was explored by John Cloud in a 2010 article for the TIME magazine, titled: “Why your DNA isn’t your destiny: The new science of Epigenetics reveal how the choices you make can change your genes.” The Nabataens – the secular pre-Islamic Arabs, the Dutch, and the Venetians didn’t become great merchants … Read entire article »

Anna Hazare is a Flash in the Pan: Corruption is an Indian addiction

Corruption is a symptom of supply and demand, it is here to stay. “Corruption, the most fallible symptom of constitutional liberty” – Edward Gibbon “If a country is to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members, who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother and the teacher.” - Abdul Kalam, President of India-2002-07 Beginning with Gandhi, India has had a tradition of fielding fasting activists in every decade. It is an impressive field: Vinobha Bhave, J. B. Kripalani, Morarji Desai, even Atal Bihari Vajpayee to some extent in the late 70s and early 80s; and now Anna Hazare, not to mention the hundreds of self proclaimed “saints” waltzing around the countryside preaching goodness and restraint. Every fringe group has … Read entire article »

India: Follow Israel’s Example!

Securing borders with a buffer zone against hostile religious states [Author's preface: How can any leader bring himself to sit across the table and negotiate peace, with someone who represents an ideology, whose mission is the outright annihilation of his people and his state? And, what can you say about a people, who choose a terrorist organization as their governing body, rather than choosing leadership that represents peaceful solutions for the future of its people. Where has all the common sense gone? Does any ideology that wants the destruction of people, just because they are different, deserve a place on this earth? Are they not better off with their virgins? Any ideology, faith or governance system that calls for the destruction of a people, solely based on their creed, race or … Read entire article »

Adoption of The Bush Doctrine, a Must For Every Democracy!

A nation nurtured on pacifism can never be a superpower, and how the wisdom of tolerance has made India defenseless. [Author's preface: The only country, surrounded by Islamic countries that has NOT lost land, on the contrary, has gained land from the Muslims, is the state of Israel. Let me repeat that ~ the only democratic nation surrounded by Islamic nations on this earth that has not lost land to the Muslims, is the state of Israel. Why is that, and how is that possible? In the answers may lie India's salvation. The adoption and enforcement of the Bush Doctrine is an imperative for every secular nation in these times of rampant and rapacious Islamic Jihadism.] A conversation in America on May 2nd evening: American-Indian to her Muslim neighbor “What do you … Read entire article »

India: Third Most Powerful Nation or a Third Rate Nation? You Decide!

Indian government priority: Protect and serve its vast majority, the Hindus. “No real change in history has ever been achieved by discussions” – Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose “Freedom is not given, it is taken” – Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose I will probably ruffle the feathers of many Indians, particularly those who are passionately patriotic. But unfortunately, patriotic fervor often induces our heads into the sands of gloried and unreal fantasies. We have to face up to the reality that the Indian form of governance is indeed the wrong form of government for the subcontinent. The multiple party system, under the current election laws and protocols engender convoluted, compromising and corrupt coalitions, replete with bickerings and battles over power, territory and money, putting in utterly unqualified ministers or ruling elite into power, who are … Read entire article »

All Free Nations Must Mandate Inquiry into Intolerant Faiths!

Editor’s note: On March 10, 2011 US Representative Peter King opened Congressional hearings about radicalization in the Muslim American community. The New York congressman says the threat of homegrown terrorism is on the rise and American Muslims aren’t doing enough to stop it. Author of this blog tries to explore – Why Governmental inquisitions on Islam must be an imperative for every democracy. ————— Please allow me to preface this article by stating that what I write here is not just an opinion based on other secondary opinions, but based on my direct experience with Muslims during my life in India, the U.S. and visits to Africa. In the course of the last decade, I have been subjected to their reductionism, that Muslims have been known for, towards non-Muslims, by seemingly the … Read entire article »

Media and Propaganda in the Battle Against Religious Atrocities

Hindus must resort to contemporary media and technology to spread their message Yesterday I received an email from a respondent and in that email he brought up a very important issue: the use of Grass-Root-Efforts to create awareness amongst Hindus of the challenges we face from these western marauding faiths. We always start out with good intentions, but somewhere along the way these good intentions are obfuscated by delays and unreliable results. Grass-Roots-Efforts is a concept that had been relied upon as a means to generate awareness about issues that afflict mankind. Here is a brief explication of this concept. For the ease of use I will use the word “Grassroots” only. Grassroots intrinsically is vociferously against central leadership, it engenders an incomparable amount of loyalty and self-sacrifice, and has the potential … Read entire article »

The Precept of Ahimsa is Harmful for the Hindus

Only the strength of solidarity and force, and the conviction to use it, can sustain Hinduism Just like Saudi Arabia and Italy are the places for Muslims and Catholics, India is the place of Hindus. That is where the similarity ends. The prior two countries do not sport fifteen percent of their population, with alien religions, not even two percent. India on the other hand has a Muslim population that is bigger than that of Pakistan, who are in solidarity with Islam and Pakistan, and not Hindustan, where they live. This is an insurmountable conundrum, and the Muslim time bomb is counting down for an explosion, which is an unequivocal geometric certainty. Despite all of the spiritual wisdom of ages, oozing from the Puranic and the Vedic precepts, the reality is … Read entire article »
