<b>Obama Win Causes Obsessed Backers To See How Empty Lives Are</b>
<!--emo&Big Grin--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo--> If push really came to shove one could always go the BPO route and outsource the whole industry, lock, stock and smoking barrel. Indeed, some said that had already happened, what with the epicentre of global terror having shifted to a place called Wall Street where people called investment bankers had terrorised the whole world, including terrorists themselves. Lashkar-e-Taiba was no match for Lehman Brothers, al-Qaida not a patch on AIG, who turned boom times into doom times. And with a vengeance.

Five surgeons from big cities are discussing who makes the best Patients to operate on.

The first surgeon, from New York , says, 'I like to see accountants on my operating table, because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered.'

The second, from Berlin, responds, 'Yeah, but you should try electricians! Everything inside them is color coded.'

The third surgeon, from London, says, 'No, I really think librarians are the best, everything inside them is in alphabetical order.'

The fourth surgeon, Moscow chimes in: 'You know, I like construction workers...those guys always understand when you have a few parts left over.'

But the fifth surgeon, from Delhi (who had just operated on the Prime Minister) shut them all up when he observed: 'You're all wrong, Politicians are the easiest to operate on. There's no guts, no heart, no balls, no brains and no spine, and the head and the butt are interchangeable!
24 years on, at 75, jailed for Rs 25
Patna, Feb. 4: Patna High Court has sentenced a 75-year-old doctor to three months in jail for taking a bribe of Rs 25 nearly 24 years ago.
In 1985, the CBI caught Balgovind Prasad red-handed while he was taking the money from a sweeper for issuing a fake medical certificate.
Prasad was then posted as a doctor for Eastern Railway at Mahendru Ghat here.
The CBI bribery case against him dragged on for seven years and Prasad was pronounced guilty on November 23, 1992. He was handed a one-year jail term and a fine of Rs 1,000, but immediately granted bail.
The doctor moved the high court the same year.
Yesterday, Justice K.K. Mandal upheld the conviction, 16 years after his appeal was filed. He commuted the prison term to three months but raised the fine to Rs 2,000.
Police are all set to arrest the 75-year-old and put him behind bars if he fails to surrender on time.

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->Simplest understanding of the crisis in US

Linda is the proprietor of a bar in Cork . In order to increase sales, she decides to allow her loyal customers - most of whom are unemployed alcoholics - to drink now but pay later. She keeps track of the drinks consumed on a ledger (thereby granting the customers loans).

Word gets around and as a result increasing numbers of customers flood into Linda's bar. Taking advantage of her customers' freedom from immediate payment constraints, Linda increases her prices for wine and beer, the most-consumed beverages. Her sales volume increases massively.

A young and dynamic customer service consultant at the local bank recognizes these customer debts as valuable future assets and increases Linda's borrowing limit. He sees no reason for undue concern since he has the debts of the alcoholics as collateral. At the bank's corporate headquarters, expert bankers transform these customer assets into DRINKBONDS, ALKBONDS and PUKEBONDS. These securities are then traded on markets worldwide.

No one really understands what these abbreviations mean and how the securities are guaranteed. Nevertheless, as their prices continuously climb, the securities become top-selling items.

One day, although the prices are still climbing, a risk manager (subsequently of course fired due to his negativity) of the bank decides that slowly the time has come to demand payment of the debts incurred by the drinkers at Linda's bar. However they cannot pay back the debts. Linda can not fulfil her loan obligations and claims bankruptcy.

DRINKBOND and ALKBOND drop in price by 95 %. PUKEBOND performs better, stabilizing in price after dropping by 80 %. The suppliers of Linda's bar, having granted her generous payment due dates and having invested in the securities are faced with a new situation. Her wine supplier claims bankruptcy, her beer supplier is taken over by a competitor.

The bank is saved by the Government following dramatic round-the-clock consultations by leaders from the governing political parties (and vested interests). The funds required for this purpose are obtained by a tax levied on the non-drinkers.

Finally an explanation I understand.. . Cheers!<!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

<!--emo&Big Grin--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo--> In an unmistakable resonance of the previous NDA government's `India Shining' slogan, Congress has floated the idea of a 'Stinking India' and said that the Oscars swept by Slumdog Millionaire symbolises rotten, stinking India - a poverty-stuck India which has emerged as a result of congress government's persistent efforts over five decades of governance.

mumbai-slumdog"We salute the true heroes of stinking India who are at their best in 'Slumdog Millionaire' portraying gristly the real India we have created through our lopsided policies, lack of urban planning and rural mismanagement. It's a film of poor India, a decaying India that might not have existed without our assistance." Congress spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi told reporters.

If Obama gave one stimulus package to the US, India has two to look forward to – the elections and IPL. We are giving everyone – from voters to advertising agencies, from the media to printers, from TV manufacturers to transport companies business, and further hope. What more do you want?”

“Corruption, like any other vice, is a self-limiting evil. It can only mean bad to people to an extent, and then it hits back. Politicians started taking bribes, and now they are confronted with payback time. A corrupt polity will lead to corrupt citizenry, and vice versa. Neither can be an absolute winner,” said the political analyst.

<!--emo&Big Grin--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo--> Responses to the findings were also as interesting. The government chose to ignore it calling the study baseless while the opposition called it a ploy by the government to create a moral platform. 7 time MP Chavvani Lal says, “I believe only in one karma – that of minting money and grabbing power. I don’t need to see beyond that”.

atleast he is honest, We can add good Karma to his kitty.

Taking on the Taliban in pink boxer shorts, t-shirt and flip-flops is not regarded as conventional military uniform.

Especially when the shorts declare 'I love New York'. However when Zachary Boyd, 19, was woken up by a Taliban assault on his platoon he only had time to grab his weapon, helmet and body armour before springing into action.
Difference between God and Obama

1) Neither has Birth Certificate.
2) God doesn't think he is Obama.
3) Liberals love Obama.
4) Obama gets better media.
