Anti-Globalization Bill 2010 passed by America

Dear Mr. President,

Congratulations on the passing of the landmark Anti-Globalization Bill, 2010. I quote from the first 30 minutes of your The 2010 State of the Union Address on 27th January 2010.

Obama – 0:17:45 – 0:17:55 “… to encourage businesses to stay within our borders, it is time to finally slash the taxbreaks to companies that ship jobs overseas and give tax breaks to companies that create those jobs right here in America.”
Sure Mr. Presidunk. But where will you get the skills you need. I believe you exported these to us lesser mortals for mercenary reasons 2 decades ago. Give us a shout if you need us to re-skill your workers.

Obama – 0:20:47-0:20:52 “… they [India and China] are making serious investments in clean energy because they want those [our] jobs.”
Yeah, we all know that there’s a larger world outside America, but do you? C’mon Obama, India has more important issues to think of and things to do than to think of America’s jobs. And guess what, the job market is much larger (and unfortunately for your ilk) and growing in our part of the world. Hey we don’t need your jobs. We actually have jobs on offer. Interested? Only we don’t have your ‘Bogus Bonus’ plans.

Obama0:25:53-0:26:04 ” … because the nation that leads the clean energy economy will be the nation that leads the Global economy. And America must be that nation.”
And why Mr. President, should everything be a race? Why must America always want to be the leader? Why is it always America vs. the rest of the World? The issues of Climate Change & Environment and clean energy are humanity’s collective problem and can be solved better through cooperation than competition. But you can’t understand this even if you tried.

So much duality – us and them all the way. And there’s much applause punctuating your speech, I wonder why.

Yours sincerely etc. etc.,
PS: BTW  “In this new decade, it’s time the American people get a government that matches their decency; …”  What new decade??? Like 2000 was the new millennium?? Haha … 2011 is still 11 months away!!!

  1. Hello Sunil,

    Very well said!! The lines you have quoted here from Mr.Presidents speech reminds me of all the movies “America is a great nation and one man saves the earth” 🙂

    I think it is time that we as Indians stop perceiving ourselves as cheap labor. We should not have done that in the very first place. I hate to admit but our so called Bigshot software companies are to be held responsible for this in my opinion.

    I also believe that its time for us to give our talent more importance.

    Totally agreed on your environmental issue point ….Its not my earth or your earth its earth and we all have to contribute. we can never say we will save the Indian earth let the American earth go to hell!


  2. Sunil, thanks for the link,i have a feeling we Indians are too good and the Americans are scared and jealous of us and the rest of the creative ones.
    the re -skilling was a nice shot .
