strips, but its main selling feature is that it comes with a balcony, plus it
can carry 8 passengers and 2 pilots to make your pampered travel most
Well, look at him. Have you ever seen
him in action like this before?
Ok so help me out here please, I'm just a simple immigrant (with no
voting rights), trying to understand our Mr president.
So here's what I'm thinking, here he is going into intricate detail explaining "capitalism" and why
it must be destroyed. Then he finishes off basically by saying that he can't do it
alone, he's going to need "leaders in both parties" to resist these capitalist thugs he's speaking of.
But then I'm thinking, aren't these leaders in the "other" party typically regarded as
So if he doesn't like American capitalist type of government, then what type of
government does he actually prefer?
I get the impression he doesn't completely hate capitalism either, only the
parts of capitalism that are in conflict with social reform.
And what does social reform mean? I know what it
means, but I'm not exactly sure what it means to Mr. Obama.
We've already heard him boast countless times, about fixing the economy
with his Recovery Act and don't forget how many times he told us about his "
historic health care reforms" too. Sounds like socioeconomic reform in progress, yes, but we still have to wait and see how it all plays out...give or take four or more years at least.
And who exactly gets to pay for those things?
Well, Capitalists of course, if you
paid attention to his recent Fiscal Budget that is.
Hey, like I said before, I'm just a simple immigrant trying to understand
One thing is clear to me though, President Obama certainly does not sound
like a typical Social Democrat to me. I get Social Democrats, they keep things
simple, they watch out for government overspending, they fight for the people and social
order, they allow individual freedoms and provide welfare, they promote free
enterprise and free market economy...they do all of these things and much more, maybe even too much,
but not exactly for free.
Heavy taxation at every corner and for everything
that you do you're going to have to run to City Hall for a piece of paper that proves you're entitled, and that too for a nominal fee.
I know Social Democrats because I've lived with them for 17 years. No big
deal really. Like everything else in life, you just get used to it (eventually)...when it's implemented gradually.
One way or another, government is always going to remain in charge, but
it's up to the people to think and decide what they want. At least the people who
are allowed to vote, not me, I'm just a spectator for the time
'When walking or standing outside on a windy day, the windmills turn. Small

Melding design with technology, Sustainably Minded Interactive Technology or SMIT, the brother-and-sister start-up out
of Brooklyn, N.Y., is developing a miniature solar panel system that, once interconnected, takes the form of ivy sitting on
the sides of buildings.
Imagine a future where every road you drive on and walk on is made of solar
panels that not only can help power every aspect of your electrical needs, but
can also send off messages to communicate with you....
Hard to grasp?
Alright then, here is a visual that might help:
Marvelous, isn't it?
Well, the good news is the that this groundbreaking technology already exists, thanks to Solar Roadways, a solar company that was co-founded by Scott Brusaw - an electrical engineer and former Marine Corps
sergeant - and his wife Julie from Idaho.
The only possible drawback I can see with this concept is the "big brother is watching you" spin that may come from the paranoid amongst us, but then again, the fact that the government isn't investing billions in it already should reassure them quite easily.
When multiple Solar Road Panels™ are
interconnected, the intelligent Solar Roadway™
is formed. These panels replace current driveways, parking lots, and all road
systems, be they interstate highways, state routes, downtown streets,
residential streets, or even plain dirt or gravel country roads. Panels can also
be used in amusement parks, raceways, bike paths, parking garage rooftops,
remote military locations, etc. Any home or business connected to the Solar
Roadway™ (via a Solar Road Panel™ driveway or parking lot) receives the power and data
signals that the Solar Roadway™ provides.
The Solar Roadway™ becomes an
intelligent, self-healing, decentralized (secure) power grid.

Two Malaysian professors have invented a method that can determine whether food is halal or not within an hour. They've introduced their test kit at the inventors and innovation convention in Brussels this week.
Financial daily 'Wall Street Journal' has written a front-page profile on chairman of India's third largest IT exporter Wipro, saying Premji defies all the conventional wisdom about Islamic tycoons - he does not hail from the Persian Gulf, did not make his money in petroleum, and does not wear his faith on his sleeve.
"Azim Premji has tapped India's abundant engineering talent to transform a family vegetable-oil firm, Wipro Ltd, into a technology and outsourcing giant. By serving Western manufacturers, airlines and utilities, the company has brought Premji a fortune of some $17 billion," the report said.
Good for him! OK, so we know he has a good sense for business, now let's hear the real secret of his success.
"We have always seen ourselves as Indian. We've never seen ourselves as Hindus, or Muslims, or Christians or Buddhists," Premji told WSJ in an interview.
