A fantastic example of "We see what we want to see". A bill for caribbean illegal immigrants? Really? Note that this comes from caribbean360.com.

Better late than never. Back to blogging.

Did Obama realize the two meanings of the last word when he talked today on immigration? He said “Immigration makes us stronger. It keeps us vibrant. It keeps us hungry."

Bizarre sops in the Rajasthan budget (apart from 1 lakh to everybody suffering from "heart-related" disease --- not sure if that includes high-cholesterol and therefore most population or whether romantic breakups also count): "We are also launching a scheme to send senior citizens on pilgrimages for which the state government would bear all expenses".

Watched the animated movie "Sita Sings the Blues".  Prabhu Shri. Ramchandra banished his wife in response to some random dude's attitude toward his own wife. He reasoned "I cannot rule if I do not share exactly the same views as my subjects!", so, with a heavy heart, he did the only thing possible, namely, banish his wife, thereby appropriately prioritizing the need to rule. This reminded me of the strong leadership displayed by today's politicians in democracy, the best form of government: "The poll suggests that 50.073 percent people oppose gay marriage, so I should oppose it too." But then, the moniker "best form of government" applies just as well to Ram Rajya, so it is fitting that they share the quality of leadership.
