Gup Shup / Reasonable living wage in your country
« on: November 22, 2017, 09:39:44 AM »
I'm just doing a quick survey of regular people. I have two questions.

What do you think is a reasonable salary in the country you live in?

What do you think the average salary is where you live?

Please also state your country.

Don't tell me what you earn. Because that is not what I asked.

I want to do some research for a project.

Thank you :),

How can so many people have thing to do? I'm gonna go back and watch them today again... Any theories?


An appeals court Tuesday extended a temporary stay of a judge’s order prohibiting the Obama administration’s controversial efforts to put any U.S. citizen the government deems a terrorism suspect behind bars indefinitely without being charged or tried. U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest had blocked the disputed statute from the National Defense Authorization Act, essentially declaring it unconstitutional.

“First Amendment rights are guaranteed by the Constitution and cannot be legislated away,” Forrest wrote in her ruling last month. “This Court rejects the Government’s suggestion that American citizens can be placed in military detention indefinitely, for acts they could not predict might subject them to detention.”

But on Tuesday, a three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals disagreed with Forrest’s ruling, writing, “We conclude that the public interest weighs in favor of granting the government’s motion for a stay.”


The case will go forward now before what will likely be a different trio of judges, but the stay will likely remain in place pending resolution of the government’s appeal.

The import of the law is disputed. Proponents say it simply reinforced authority a federal appeals court in Washington had already accorded to the U.S. government, at least as far as foreigner are concerned. Critics say the measure exposes journalists and human rights activists who meet with alleged terrorists to the prospect of open-ended detention.

Truthdig columnist Chris Hedges is among the group of journalists and activists who sued the government over the provision. Hedges wrote in September after Forrest decided in favor of the plaintiffs that the ruling was “an unqualified victory for the public.”

Chris Hedges:

The judge said in her opinion that the government “did not submit any evidence in support of its positions. It did not call a single witness, submit a single declaration, or offer a single document at any point during these proceedings.” She went on to write that she found “the testimony of each plaintiff credible.”

“At the March hearing, the Court asked whether Hedges’ activities could subject him to detention under § 1021; the Government stated that it was not prepared to address that question. When asked a similar question at the August hearing, five months later, the Government remained unwilling to state whether any of plaintiffs’ (including Hedges’s) protected First Amendment future activities could subject him or her to detention under § 1021. This Court finds that Hedges has a reasonable fear of detention pursuant to § 1021(b)(2).”

The government has now lost four times in a litigation that has gone on almost nine months. It lost the preliminary injunction in May. It lost a motion for reconsideration shortly thereafter. It lost the permanent injunction. It lost its request last week for a stay. We won’t stop fighting this, but it is deeply disturbing that the Obama administration, rather than protecting our civil liberties and democracy, insists on further eroding them by expanding the power of the military to seize U.S. citizens and control our streets.

It is worth nothing that all three of the judges from the 2nd Circuit involved in the latest NDAA ruling were appointed by President Obama.

Gup Shup / Anyone know any agents for land sales...

Discussions / Punjab's economy.
« on: January 20, 2012, 12:51:53 PM »
A lot of you are traveling back and forth to india, or have lots of family back in punjab, some of you even do business there. I was just wondering how strong the economy really is in Punjab.

I've noticed family talking about how land prices have sky rocketed, but who's buying it? How long do you think it'll last before the everything crashes or will it stay sky high for many years to come.

Food prices have gone through the roof, how can people afford the land? Is there a giant job market?

Is it possible to start a business, in punjab? Or should I be worried about "red tape." Do NRI's face more barriers starting up a business in India than locals?

Is the currency stable enough to keep the country growing?

Anyways hopefully there are a few people out there with knowledge of such a topic. Feel free to share whatever experience knowledge you have. Thanks.

It's surprising how few people know what is happening in the world, specifically in America. Just a few days ago on October 25, 2011, a peaceful crowd was dispersed by flash bang grenades, rubber bullets and tear gas. War Zone? In America?

Just wondering are there any good investment strategies for India. Strictly rupee investments, no converting currencies. And nothing to do with agricultural land.


Protests to be held in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and the north; Protest in Tel Aviv expected to be largest yet with police closing off major arteries.

Protest leaders are planning a massive rally in Tel Aviv Saturday night for the third consecutive week, hoping to top the 150,000 who came out nationwide a week earlier.

Protests will be held in other locales as well, with activists in the north calling for a demonstration at Shomrim Junction in the Yizrael Valley at 6:00 P.M. Saturday. The rally, held under the slogan, "the northern periphery is awakening" is meant to protest the high cost of living in northern Israel.

A mass protest is planned in Jerusalem as well, and a procession will head off from Jerusalem's Menorah Park to Paris Square at 9:00 PM, where a rally will be held.
There will be a live performance, including Ahinoam Nini, Etnics and Mosh Ben-Ari.

Speakers include the Chairman of the Jerusalem Student Union, Itay Gottler, Rabbi Rafi Feuerstein chairman of the Tzohar Rabbinic Organization, representatives of the teachers union, people who were evicted from their homes and city council member Rachel Azaria.

The Tel Aviv rally is scheduled to take place Saturday night at 9:00 P.M., and is considered the main protest event of the weekend. Demonstrators plan to march from Habima Square, near the tent city on Rothschild Boulevard, to the Kirya defense compound on Kaplan Street, where they will hold the rally.

This time the organizers decided to hold the demonstration outside the Kirya rather than on the square at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Singers Yehudit Ravitz and Rita are to appear at the rally. The speakers' addresses will be broadcast on large screens on both sides of Kaplan street.

Israel police forces have already closed Kaplan Street off to traffic in anticipation of the rally, and will only reopen the main avenue at 4:00 A.M. on Sunday. Parts of Ibn Gvirol, Marmorek, Ben Zion Boulevard, Dizengoff and Rothschild will be blocked as well, and traffic will resume at midnight.

Police have recommended that the public not bring cars to the area.

Roi Noiman, one of the protest leaders, said the demonstration's central message will be "the government has abandoned the people," in the wake of the Knesset's legislation to form housing committees and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's ignoring of the protesters' demands.

"The people are taking the country back," he said. "We're expecting a powerful demonstration for social change. This is an opportunity we haven't had for 60 years in this country, and now is the time for people to come out of their homes onto the street."

News Khabran / Sharia law in bid to conquer London
« on: August 06, 2011, 09:21:05 AM »

Islamists are trying to enforce their severe Sharia law code of conduct in London, to drag “enveloped in sin “ Britain to a sin-free society by any means - from abstention to amputation.

­They’ve started a campaign to make certain areas of London and other cities Islamic law-controlled zones – starting with Walthamstow, East London. They do believe that Islam and Sharia are unstoppable in Europe.

“Muslims will be commanding good and forbidding evil, presenting Islam as an alternative, to the Muslim and non-Muslim community. Ultimately we believe that Muslims can live together, trade according to the Sharia, resolve their problems according to the Sharia, and even police themselves, to a large extent. Hopefully one day we will have Islamic Emirates which will have authority locally, security locally, and even provide welfare locally,” day-dreams Anjem Choudary, spokesperson for Muslims Against the Crusades.

Choudary and his friends are fly-posting parts of London with a large Muslim population. They want to ban drinking, gambling, and playing music. And they say they’ve got bands of young men ready to patrol and enforce Sharia law, by any means.

“Enforcement should initially be on the level of inviting and forbidding verbally. But if someone has the capability to forbid what essentially is evil, like pornography or prostitution, he should do so,” says Sharia supporter Abu Izzadeen, meaning physical rather than verbal preaching. “I believe prostitutes that are near the mosque, they should be run out of the area.”

These Muslims say British society is broken: riddled with drugs, crime and prostitution.  Because of that, they firmly believe members of the communities they are targeting will welcome Sharia law. But the word on the street about the campaign tells a different story.

“If you don’t like the laws of the place you live, then find somewhere you do appreciate the laws. All of these things are completely legal in this country,” one British man told RT.

“This isn’t India or Pakistan. This is England, we’ve got our own laws. People haven’t got a right to come in here and bring their own laws,” one woman declared.

“I think that’ll cause nothing but trouble,” a market trader concluded.

Councillor Martin Easom agrees, saying this could destroy community cohesion.

“We’ve got squads going round the borough, taking down the posters as soon as they’re put up, because we do not want these posters around the borough, they do not represent the views of our borough, they have no place in Waltham Forest,” Martin Easom, chief executive of Waltham Forest Council, stated.

Citizen equality campaigners say the Sharia supporters should not be considered a religious movement, but a far-right political organization – with a poster campaign designed to divide and conquer communities.

“Their danger lies in dividing communities and people, creating mistrust, and particularly among non-Muslims towards moderate Muslims,” Anne Marie Waters of One Law for All movement, said.

“I think this is part of their aim, to create mistrust, so they can then turn to moderate Muslims and say, look everyone hates you, we’re your friend, turn to us.  It’s a very dangerous thing, and it’s a political tactic to increase their own power,” she explained.

Undeterred by his opponents, Choudary and his group plan what they see as the beginning of an Islamic Emirate, not just in the UK, but all over Europe.

The police have mobilized to take those posters down as fast as they appear. But Choudary and his group have formed bands of enforcers to make sure Sharia law is adhered to, verbally or physically. And in other parts of London, women have already been harassed for not covering their heads. Should these Muslims ever get their way, Britain’s traditional way of life would become a risk, rather than a civil liberty.
