> Strawman. No political leanings were revealed by the previous poster. < > I'm sorry for your confusion. Americans have and still do live in these countries for the purpose of education, employment, missionary work, cultural experience, relief and aid work...I could go on. < > Once again, there are American IT workers in India. Cite a source please, where IT workers are being targeted for murder in India or other countries. < > Again, cite in the previous post the statements lamenting the fate of Indian immigrants. Here's a hint. You can't. There are no such statements in that post. << Right, just exactly how much did you give in charitable contributions to third world nations last year? Mine, in the thousands, I also support real disadvantage children through World Vision. Your's, I mean you love them so much I'll bet it's a big fat zero. Give anything to the Tsunami victims for relief, eh? >> Yawn. Strawman. Again. Donation to charity does not make hateful and bigoted statements immune from criticism. Padshore's choice of supported charities does not diminish his or her right to respond to your remarks. <> Sooo...the first members of your family to arrive don't qualify. << through it's own educational system and that includes second generation immigrants AND is LOYAL to this country. You can become a citizen of this country and as long as your loyalties are to this country and it's people then fine. But if you're Japanese and will only buy Toyota because it benefits the homeland and who you really consider your people then go back home! >> Helpful information, many foreign auto manufacturers have American based manufacturing plants and employee Americans at many levels. Buying foreign can and does benefit Americans. Likewise, many American manufacturers purchase from foreign suppliers and outsource to foreign countries. Buying American can and does benefit foreigners. Your lack of understanding of global economy is appalling. < > First, you have no proof of Padshore's country of origin or resident status. Show me proof of assimilation by previous immigrants. If this was true, there would be no China Towns, no ethnic restaraunts, no Greek, German, or Italian neighborhoods with stores featuring ethnic items with prices frequently displayed in both English and at least one other foreign language, no Octoberfest celebrations...again I could go on. Does your aversion to cultural expression apply to everyone? Or is it related to skin color, or some other factor? < > Very relevant. It illustrates your hypocrisy. < > Again, no relevance to this discussion. < > Seeking improvements in salary and employability have always been major reasons for immigration to foreign countries. < > Loss of labor in construction to illegal labor is apples an apples and oranges comparison to outsourcing jobs. < > Prove that absolutely no outsourced jobs that require intense client interaction ground up have never been off-shored. Even better, prove that it is an impossibility that ground up development will ever happen in an outsourced environmnet. And finally prove that there is some factor that determines that American's are "smarter". << Again, I'm still waiting for that earth-shattering list of Indian engineering accomplishments that will rock the world, and I guess so is the world. USA, USA , USA , USA!!!!! >> Indian nationals have led and participated in many succesful and groundbreaking initiatives in the areas of medicine, education, engineering etc. I suppose you're eager to credit USA USA USA for all accomplishments in the world regardless of the involvement of other countries. < > Prove Padshore's ethnicity and residence, or retract. << Like it out not you're countrymen are bigots, egotistical morons who managed to murder the best thing that ever happened to them and his name was Ghandi.>> You're own words define you as bigoted and moronic. In addition, I'm fairly certain that Ghandi would think you were a jerk. << I have not met one nice assimilated IT Indian male, they all down to a man had major chips on their shoulders.>> What is the correlation between assimilated and nice? How does an Indian male behave in a way that proves his assimilation to your satisfaction? Eating steak? < > There are no other arrogant immigrants? < > Anybody at any point in time coming to America to seek employment or to start businesses were coming to participate in a competive price driven economy. The result of this was displacement of existing American workers. << My parents were born and raised here and all had deep family roots but not one ever had issues as far as loyalties to this country and neither do I. >> Well then, you and your parents should pat yourselves on the back. Congratulations on the amazing accomplishment of being born on American soil. If you were also born rich and white. Please pat yourself on the back again. < > I'd say all of this is irrelevant, but it is useful in illuminating your own prejudices and h atred. << Do you still speak your language especially at night from your homeland and not English?>> Many immigrants from many cultures choose to speak their home language in the home. This isn't limited to the present time, or to Indians. << Do you eschew American values and still enforce you're homeland cultural values on your family?>> All American "values" are derived from foreign cultures. << Do you honor and obey any American holidays?>> How does one obey an American holiday. Do you refuse to celebrate Christmas because it's origin is not American? << Do you belong to any American religion? >> There is no American religion. Idiot. < > But you said that Padshore was an Indian? Would you pledge allegiance to another country's flag or sing there national anthem? Obviously Padshore is not in your estimation a real American, so what right do you have to demand any display of loyalty. Has it occured to you that the refusal of third and fourth generation immigrants to view new immigrants as new Americans is a major reason that these new immigrants are slower to express loyalty. < > incoherent. And BTW, < > It sure as hell ain't padshore!
