Female volunteer for McCain assaulted by Obama supporter with a stick – Few Comments !!

After reading the news from Pajamas Media on “Obama Supporter Assaults Female McCain Volunteer in New York” .I thought of commenting on the same ,share my thoughts and show you some of the “WORTH CONSIDERING” Comments of 970+ Comments on the original news post.
This is not the AMERICA,I know .. America is all about respecting everybody’s views/wills and wishes.One of the most Democratic country of world – America,is witnessing pretty indecent and unexpected incidents during the campaign this time.. while some might say this was expected as this election is going to decide America’s next leader ,leader who will take it out of current crisis and several other issues.. But guess Obama supporters take it more seriously and took path of violence to show the same,so wise of them ? huh !!

After the incident in New York ,with the victim many were upset and that showed up in a huge 970+ comments on original news post .Some of them I would like to point out ..

*- 7.Jay says : “My advice is, go to WalMart and buy a gun. Regardless of who wins this election trouble is going to erupt,particularly in urban areas……”

*-12. paulejb says :”Think it’s bad now? If Obama is elected his storm troopers will terrorize anyone who criticises his policies. Want to spend four years being called a “racist” for voicing your opinion vote Obama.”

*-44. The Oracle:says : “If Obama loses, be preparded to defend this country from the radical left leaning liberal socialists… don’t run away, run out and fight them and drop them where they stand .”
*-50. Chris says : “I wouldn’t put a NOBAMA sticker on my car, the anarchists in my East Village NYC neighborhood would harm the car on the first night.”

*-633. Concerned says : ” .. I expect the blacks to riot because of course they are all animals… Big mistake to attack me is all I can say ..”

And the list goes on ………….


Harmeet understands Small Business ! – So,even if you are a Democrat,you might want to read this ..

In my last post on Harmeet I told about Harmeet,about her Republican Views and her stand for McCain-Palin ticket.
When I researched more about Harmeet,I found her that she is not just another candidate .She is THE CANDIDATE ,most eligible for the seat she is running for.San Francisco is the heart of Startups of every kind – Technology,Web to what not .. And the good news is that Harmeet herself runs her Law Based Firm ,she is herself a small-business owner who makes payroll,manages and grows business ,provides benefits to her employees because she understand the need of the same,provides quality service to clients while guiding them through the thickets of government regulation .As I said she is not just another candidate who have spent decades as politicians as government payroll and being the part of problem ,not the solution .She understands the impact of regulations on business as a consumer and trusted advisor and with her experience into the same she is capable of making best decisions .
Its often said,to understand a person,wear his/her boots and see from his/her perspective ,only then one can understand his/her needs and views .Harmeet knows this well and she actually understands the needs of Entrepreneurs and Small Business owners/managers.How ? Well,She herself owns one ! And her long experience into the same is going to benefit people of SF.
With the problem of Unemployment everywhere Small Business is the best way to secure future of one’s life and help others get employment .In the list of Harmeet’s area of expertise, tops the Employment Law …So,do you think anybody else even competes closer ,when it comes to who deserves the office ?
Friends,its time to think and decide on the basis of candidate and not Party alone .I would like you to atleast give 5-10 minutes and see opponent of Harmeet and compare yourself as in who actually deserves the seat,the office .For a moment forget you are favoring Democrat or for that matter anybody and just compare 2 candidates,2 people for the important office,upon which depends the near future of SF.Its important because even today many people blindly vote on the basis of Party they have been favoring for all that time they have been eligible for the same.But,this is not way to run democracy,democracy means in simple words ” let the most eligible person win ” .
In words of Jawaharlal Nehru (India’s first prime minister ),he saidDemocracy means tolerance ,tolerance not merely of those who agree with us ,but of those who do not agree with us .So! rightly said !! ..
So,what are you waiting for .. My verdict is Harmeet ! and I am sure after a self survery by you with you ..your verdict won’t differ from mine .You can help Harmeet’s campaign by contributing here .Just do it,I’ll say the Nike way .. You don’t need to be a millionaire or someone big to contribute.Harmeet is a very down to earth person and appreciates every $ of yours.
Last but not the least,Judge the person by his/her virtues not his/her background of Party or anything else.I say this because many Democrats find it tough ,by shifting and voting for a Republican .So,whats the solution ? Forget the party system and see the person whom you really want to be in the Office.
Go Harmeet !! Go McCain-Palin !!

Fireman for New York Senate !!

Love Spiderman ? Love Superman ? saving New York from evil and deadly enemies ..Wow!! It looks all so good in movies and comics.But alas !! We actually have none of them,but yea we have a new Super hero and he actually exists ! He Is Tom Dooley ,the ex-Fireman and now running for New York State Senate.
When you peep back in his life ,you actually find him a super hero.Back in 1973 he joined the United States Marines and served in the First Marine Regiment, as well as the Marine Security Guard detachments in the American Embassies in Cyprus, Ethiopia, and Ireland.Later in 1979 he joined the New York City Fire Department and even though he retired shortly before the unprovoked attack on the World Trade Center, he volunteered at the site until the rescue operations were complete.
He is one of the most deserving candidate for the office and with his experience and will to help people with what he has,I believe in him to be a winner.

Harmeet K. Dhillon for California State Assembly !

Harmeet K. Dhillon is a Republican candidate for State Assembly in California’s 13th District.The district which includes San Francisco neighborhoods of North Beach,Pacific Heights,Russian Hill,Nob Hill,the Financial District,SOMA,the Mission,Bayview and Hunters point ,the district which Harmeet calls her home now.Born in India and raised in the UK, New York and North Carolina Harmeet is truly a global citizen.
Having her education done from University of Virginia & Dartmouth College ,today she is the founder of Dhillon & Smith LLP and was awarded the prestigious “Best Lawyers Under 40” honor by the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association.Apart from this she posses lots more titles and awards in her basket.
Now what really forced me to praise about her is her debate with Ro Khanna ,a Democrat and the way she spoke on ” John McCain – A Reflection of Our Values “ , every word of which is so truthful and influential that it can force a hardcore Democrat to rethink if he/she is doing right being a Democrat. Harmeet is one of the smartest women in Politics who understands that U.S. is at a crossroads of financial uncertainty in the markets, ever-increasing budget deficits and federal spending, an ongoing mortgage crisis threatening American homes, world terror and war in the Middle East, and an energy crisis.At the same time the world face new opportunities for cross-border trade, clean energy, global growth in technology and new industries, and an increasingly multicultural and pluralistic world.
I agree with her when she says “In America you could study hard, work hard, act responsibly, and ultimately achieve success”,this certainly means that America is and will be Land of Opportunities for times to come.
She brings some of the most important issues to desk and ready to discuss on the same like Free trade and outsourcing,Illegal immigration,Security and says “The Republican Party has always been an advocate of lower taxes on all classes of society, smaller government, less regulatory burdens on small businesses, and the promise of a rising economic tide that lifts all boats, not a zero-sum game of class warfare such as that advocated by Obama and Joe Biden, who seek to pit the lower and middle classes against “the rich.””.
Harmeet is one of few candidates who actually have got genuine reasons ,as to why she is needed to represent people.I believe in Harmeet’s success in November and it further proves that Indian Americans have directly benefited from Republican administrations at the highest levels with maximum number of Indians in Bush Administartion than any Administration in past, Bobby Jindal being popular Governor of Louisiana and U.S.-India Nuclear deal being signed up.
Go Harmeet !!.. Go McCain/Palin !!!!

Charlie’s Angels of PA

Since 1970’s Charlie’s Angels have been part of American lives through television series,comics or movies ,but one thing remained same i.e power and combination of 3 smart women.
Its back again,and with all new unexpected version .Only this time its not Cameron Diaz or Drew Barrymore ,perhaps its the Republican force fighting in the state of Pennsylvania starring Toni Gilhooley ,Melissa Hart & Marina Kats .

Toni Gilhooley is the Republican candidate in the 2008 congressional elections for the 17th Congressional District (map) of Pennsylvania running against Democrat Tim Holden.Her strength lies in the background she belongs to and her commitment to reduce and vote for tax cuts.
For 25 years, Toni served the citizens of Pennsylvania as a State Trooper. She was a pioneer for women in the Pennsylvania State Police and understands the security issues like no one.After retirement she was appointed to serve as a Commissioner on the PA Human Relations Commission by Governor Mark Schweiker.Toni serves as President of the Dauphin County Council of Republican Women and many other associations.
Among many issues like STIMULATING THE ECONOMY,CREATING A REAL ENERGY PLAN,ENDING WASTEFUL GOVERNMENT SPENDING, IMMIGRATION,PROTECTION,PROTECTION of 2nd AMENDMENT RIGHTS,CURING HEALTHCARE,STOPING THE RAID ON SOCIAL SECURITY,PRO-LIFE & FAMILY her strength lies in the TAX Issue where she says ” Our current congressman has lost touch with the people of this district. He voted against the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts and vowed to vote against their retention in 2010. If elected, I will vote to retain these tax cuts and I will work to cut wasteful spending in Washington,”.
In simple words it means that Tim holden voted for largest tax increase in the history of U.S. $683 Billion additional in taxes. That’s $2,100 in additional taxes for a family of four and making $50,000 per year .Now,if you cannot afford this huge sum of money,you certainly cannot afford Tim Holden winning .So message is straight and clear,to live safely and smoothly choose Toni .

Melissa Hart is the Republican nominee in the 2008 congressional electionsto challenge incumbent Altmire, having won the primary on April 22, 2008.Born in North Hills,PA she entered into legal practice as an attorney for a major Pittsburgh law firm and has served in the Pennsylvania State Senate where she chaired the finance committee.
Apart from dealing with many similar issues Melissa is known for her Environment friendly nature,she is a strong supporter of Energy Independence and to achieve which she has some plans like :
* Supporting policies that encourage the development of wind and solar energy, which could create manufacturing jobs here in Western Pennsylvania;
* Putting an end to America’s dependence on foreign oil by exploring for American oil and natural gas off our coasts and opening up restricted areas in Alaska for exploration;
* Expanding the use of clean coal technology, so we can and will use this abundant and inexpensive resource without reservation;
* Encouraging the construction of more nuclear power facilities which is a clean, efficient and inexpensive energy source already in use in Western Pennsylvania;
* Promoting energy efficiency efforts.
Clean and cheap fuel will help reducing current Gas prices and make environment cleaner ,hence making lives easy ..

Marina Kats is the Republican candidate in the 2008 congressional elections for the 13th Congressional District of Pennsylvania. She is the Republican nominee to challenge incumbent Rep. Allyson Schwartz (D-Pa.), having won the primary on April 22, 2008.Marina came to America as a legal immigrant from Ukraine in 1979 with barely any money and no understanding of the English language.She came to America with nothing but a love for freedom and the belief that through hard work, anything is possible and today she is a businesswoman, an attorney, a mother of two fantastic daughters .
Marina is a strong woman with strong hold on current issues like GAS CRISIS,ECONOMY,ENERGY,IMMIGRATION,EDUCATION,IRAQ,HEALTH CARE,WAR ON TERROR and ETHICS.
Today America needs this new generation of powerful women to drive development in every sphere and you can help contributing the same by a vote of yours.Don’t forget to register for the same..May the best and deserving win ..

John McCain – A Visionary !

A Visionary !

A Visionary !

What if you are given this power to see the future,a vision to sense it and use the same to improve future.Well !! I don’t have it,but people who do have it are the one we remember now and have mark in history of Human civilization..They are the people who gave us this world we live in .They were Politicians,Scientists,Engineers,Entrepreneurs and what not ?
One such person whom I admire and see as next visionary is none other than John McCain .John McCain is a planner,a long term planner.Be it in terms of promoting Entrepreneurship & Small Businesses which will ,with their innovation drive the economy as well as generate huge employment opportunities or be it Offshore drilling ..The Offshore drilling though will need huge investments now,but eventually bring Gasoline prices and U.S. dependency on Gulf Nations down.
John McCain helped facilitate conditions that allowed the BlackBerry to exist,by working on bills that dealt with the telecommunications industry .
After the recent Economic crisis at Wall Street one more truth came to limelight i.e McCain Warned of Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac Crisis Three Years Ago ,i.e the real culprits were caught 3 years ago by John McCain but the legislation was blocked by Democrats and hence stopped the Reform Bill.
McCain then in 2005 brought in front of the Senate that Fannie Mae’s employees deliberately and intentionally manipulated financial reports to hit earnings targets in order to trigger bonuses for senior executives summing to $10.6 Billion accounting scandal.The report of financial misconduct at Fannie Mae echoed the deeply troubling $5 billion profit restatement at Freddie Mac.
The OFHEO report also stated that Fannie Mae used its political power to lobby Congress in an effort to interfere with the regulator’s examination of the company’s accounting problems.Infact OFHEO report further complied with McCain’s vision that Government-sponsored entities or GSEs need to be reformed without any delay.A failure to which might risk American Taxpayers posed by these companies in the housing market , the overall financial system, and the economy as a whole.
John McCain’s vision was so precise that it seems that he actually saw todays condition 3 years earlier.
Americans need a man to lead their nation just like John McCain,Infact it should be non other than John McCain .With the examples quoted above its hard to believe that anyone will doubt his foresightedness .

Poverty Reduction through Political Accountability !

This is the theme,the credo,the mission,the goal of The BORGEN Project.The Borgen Project is a campaign that is bringing political attention to severe poverty.Based in Seattle,WA it was founded by Clint Borgen with vision ” We’re creating a political force for the world’s poor. We’re building a powerful poverty-reduction movement that can champion humanitarian causes.” .

The Core Components of The Borgen Project are :
1-The Global Campaign .
2-The Political Force .
3-The Issue Messaging Machine .

The Borgen Project is putting pressure on U.S. leaders to achieve the plan they already agreed to. The plan to end world hunger,the plan officially called U.N. Millennium Development Goals .
The Borgen Project needs volunteers to contribute by calling their Congressional leaders for 15seconds and tell them about Borgen Project and the need to address and increase funding for
global poverty.This is going to create a huge impact.
The Borgen Project has significantly contributed by bringing this global issue in the eyes of U.S. Politicians and will continue to do so…
