India Attacks US on plan to ban outsourcing

From the Financial Times:

India’s technology industry has attacked proposed new US legislation that bans the outsourcing of federal work to low cost countries arguing it is a protectionist measure contrary to the spirit of free trade.

The move by the US Senate coincides with decisions by a number of foreign companies to halt further outsourcing to India because of a new domestic tax ruling that would enable the Indian government to tax part of their worldwide earnings.

My feelings on this? Fuck Free Trade. I have seen too many good people lose their jobs because the company decided it would be better to ship their jobs overseas and save on salaries and benefits. This has been happening for awhile with manufacturing jobs and nobody said anything. Now it is starting to hit white collar jobs and people are starting to wake up a bit.

No-Contact Jacket

imageback.jpg

The No-Contact Jacket is a wearable defensive jacket created to aid women in their
struggle for protection from violence. When activated by the wearer, 80,000 volts of low
amperage electric current pulses just below the surface shell of the entire jacket. This
exo-electric armor prevents any person from unauthorized contact with the wearer’s body.

Once they outlaw jackets, only outlaws will have jackets.

Churchlite

Brothers, sisters and siblings of other genders; I’m here today to share with you a vision; a vision of a church without revelation, without prayer, without superstition and, most of all, without God.

Some might ask if it’s even possible to have a church without God. The answer to that is simple: There is no God, so every single Church on Earth, from the smallest, storefront loony cult to the largest, mainstream, world-spanning loony cult is, in fact, a Church without God.

But they do have a collection basket.

Freeway Signs

When you put a sign on the freeway
people will read it
until someone takes it down.

President Match

PresidentMatch.com asks you a series of questions and then tells you what candidates you have the most common views with. My top three were:

Kucinich
Dean
Kerry

Bush came in last.

Street Writing

no_hockey_central_park.jpg

In the spring of 2003, with the snow melting away and a somewhat recent move downtown, I started to notice something. Writing. On the street. Political messages, artistic graffiti, guerilla marketing. New York is a city of carless walkers which makes sidewalks an effective medium if you want to spread a message.

FactCheck.Org

FactCheck.Org is:

We are a nonpartisan, nonprofit, “consumer advocate” for voters that aims to reduce the level of deception and confusion in U.S. politics. We monitor the factual accuracy of what is said by major U.S. political players in the form of TV ads, debates, speeches, interviews, and news releases. Our goal is to apply the best practices of both journalism and scholarship, and to increase public knowledge and understanding.

Sounds interesting. I will be visiting this site alot. I am always a bit suspicious when anyone says they are nonpartisan.
