India's unpaid shill Tom Friedman writing in NY Times:


..All you need to do is grant visas to two million Indians, Chinese and Koreans,” said Shekhar Gupta, editor of The Indian Express newspaper. “We will buy up all the subprime homes. We will work 18 hours a day to pay for them. We will immediately improve your savings rate — no Indian bank today has more than 2 percent nonperforming loans because not paying your mortgage is considered shameful here. And we will start new companies to create our own jobs and jobs for more Americans.”


please, please, listen to this guy. Since these indians who are supposed to bail out america from her troubles have already made india a heaven, we no longer need them. and while you are at it, take shekhar gupta as a freebie. we won't miss him and the also ran newspaper he edits. It is a win-win deal for India. We get rid of the won't-work-here-but-will-work-there crowd while getting to keep their remittances. And while we are at it, let us impose an emigration tax on these bailout indians - good riddance and we will make money too..

For people wondering how America got into such a mess, just look who is writing their editorials..

OK. One story that I heard was the sub-continental folks that are unable to pay their mortgages are abandoning their homes (to debt collectors) and returning back to *dear homeland*. Sort of Gulf-ish.

I'm not sure if our "Golf playing, Pina Colada sipping, high paid Columnist" knows about it.

And...what a self contradictory statement from the other jacka55, Dhar? Bunch of serious stand-up comedians dressed up in tux.
