Immigration policy of Australia

June 8, 2016

I am fully with Peter Dutton and can see what the man has to say. And I am astonished at the limited understanding Australian people, in general, have about accepting refugees.

I am not saying stop people from entering the country. There are thousands of skilled labor willing to enter Australia and contribute to its economy. That is the kind of immigrants a country should really look for.

I am myself an immigrant and committed to contribute positively to Australia. The minister is correct in saying that the refugees haven’t been skill tested and most of them will either add to the unemployment queues or be a burden to the social welfare system. How many of us want Medicare gone ?

There is serious shortage of skilled jobs in Australia. I know the DIBPs SOL does not indicate so. But if you hang around immigrant forums, there are so many highly skilled people complaining about lack of jobs – at all levels – even getting a job flipping burgers in Maccas is getting difficult. What jobs do you think the refugees will do ? What contribution, positive, if at all, will this mob make ?

Germany took in a million people from a war torn part of the world. The world appreciate their gesture. The ones rallying for human rights but without a vision on the future were teary eyed and so proud of Deutshe land. Look at what they end up with ? Locals are now rallying against their government’s decision. I do not know the ground reality but it sure looks like the ones which were given refuge are now devouring and plundering that country. Women are being raped and anti social behaviour at public places is rampant.

It is important to look at the background from which most refugees seek refuge from. If they are not just economic refugees, then a thorough psychological evaluation of people being accepted must be undertaken. If a person has only seen, spoken and retaliated in violence, I believe that person will take a very long time to adjust to normal society. Sure, there are genuine refugees who are in serious threat to their lives and well being who should be welcomed with open arms. But am almost certain such crowd will never get involved in violent, anti social behaviour and it this rant is simply not against those people.

It is also ignorance which can make people say there will be a few bad apples and that a few incidents shouldn’t stop Australia from accepting thousands of refugees.

A simple example is the recent publicity of the menace the Apex gang is causing in Melbourne. It is mostly African youth and I am almost willing to bet these (or their parents) were the same ones who were given refuge in Australia. Then the government spent a fortune for them to keep entertained while in camps – sport matches and sight seeing tours and making them stay in star hotels etc. These are the same people who we would have thought would have collaborated with the Australian culture and contribute to our society and economy. Instead, they are running amuck causing damage to public and private property.

I say lets have a three strike policy for all these adopted citizens and permanent residents. Essentially, if you have a country that is legally bound to take you in when all other countries refuse, then this policy applies to you. If found guilty of three crimes or found alleged in 5 crimes, which ever is earlier, you will be kicked out of Australia.

I wish to leave my children in an Australia relatively free of crime. Nay, at least in an Australia – from where
they don’t have to seek refuge from another nation – only because we today failed to conceive of a possibly rooted future for this great nation.

Fire this man – Rajan – Reserve Bank of India

June 8, 2016

I whole heartedly wish that this man goes.
He and his team have lost touch with reality.

A common man now pays charges on
a)if some one deposits cash into his account
b) If he makes an online (NEFT) transfer
c) If he makes more than 5 transactions on an ATM. Given any ATM machine in India cannot dispense more than 40 bills, if one wants to withdraw over 100k from his account then one pays a fee !

Etc. The above are the only ones that I am aware of and I am surprised how all of this
has been passed by the RBI. I even tweeted to the idiots at RBI and asked them if they havent
implemented a policy where the banks should upgrade their machines from disposing at most 40 notes in a transaction,
why should a common man pay for withdrawing a lakh of rupees in a month. Now I can understand withdrawing a lakh of rupees a month may not be common place but the question still remains. Who is coming up with all this mindless bullshit ? I dont care if his resume shows him to be a superman – if a person at his level doesn’t have this basic vision, I don’t know how qualified he is to be the gov’nor.

When world over, the reserve banks are reducing interest rates, the man has failed in doing the same for India. Who needs this duck head ?
And there is a petition online for his second term ? Get a life !

Indian Military – What a waste

June 7, 2016

Rant.

I hate our military. With a passion. I think they are the biggest burden on our economy and fail to do a job expected of of them. From my limited understanding, their job was simply to serve and protect. And time and again they have proven their impotence to deliver on both counts.

Have they ever wondered why they get no respect from the nation ? If you search for it, you can see a few instances – find a few ignorant people who like them – but on the whole, the country isn’t impressed with them, IMO. For eg., compare how common men of America treat their armed forces and then compare how the people of India treat their military. They are a just a secure job. That’s it. I have no respect for most of the men working in the military. When I see a fellow in uniform, I genuinely want to walk up to him and spit in his face  that is if I can’t piss on him. But that’s taking it too far.

There have been occassions where they did serve. Recently, the army was cleaning out a river base for a religious organization to hold a camp! WTF is going on ?
At least this should give an idea to the powers that be. One of them can be that once a month the stationed officers in respective cities clean out their local water bodies.
Or fix local roads. Or help the society in ‘some’ way. If they can sit and ponder, you will never run out of things you can do for the society at large.
You will rarely, if ever, see a military vehicle stopping on a lonely road trying to help someone whose car has broken. Make this your mission. If there is no national emergency, serving citizens in whatever way possible should be your priority.

I have experienced this first hand. The way they close and cordon off roads meant for public use is appalling. You are meant to be civil servants
and integrate with the society. Not pride yourself and cordon off specific areas in residential zones to be
used by your proud asses. It is suppossed to be citizens first, you assholes! If your tiny brains can think – they don’t even have to do that – just look up google maps and see if the road your cordoning off is a shorter link between two arterial roads dont be a dick and close it.

You do a good job in parading people in shows of military might. At least they are good at showman ship – I give them that.

They have mostly beeen a colossal failure at protecting the country.
When the Pathankot airforce base was attacked a few months ago, it took them over 3 days to clear out a limited geographic area and still were beaten by a handful of poorly trained militants. Read that again – The nations most important air base was attacked by a handful of
miscreants and the think tank of the country’s protectors and the men who are given that job, took over THREE days and THREE nights to clear them out. And still couldn’t do a complete job !
And there is news that there were insiders involved. Men, who were supposed to be of honor sold national secrets. After all the benefits they get, they sell their souls for pennies.

I think the mental maturity of people being employed by the military, in all ranks, is weaning. As was shown in the way they handled the Pathankot air base attack. Rewind back to Kargil – What idiot commander hands out a satellite phone to a journalist which was then traced by the Pakistani
military to kill soldiers in Kargil ? All the details were summarised in this letter https://kalyan97.wordpress.com/2016/02/24/gen-malik-please-tell-the-nation-what-barkha-did-at-kargil-jay-bhattacharjee/
Benefits – The ones that I know include free or heavily dicounted travel by road and rail. Free accomodation for family. Free education for kids. Subsidised groceries. Even subsidised alcohol
!
Basically they never pay tax on anything they buy. Anything ! When they retire they keep getting a hand some pension and the government will give them land parcels and assist in getting petrol pump permits,
food and liquor licenses and God knows what else.
Do you know how hard an average middle class working fella works to be able to provide all this to his family ? And you are getting it for free. You thankless bastards!
Of course, due to YOUR choice of joining the military and YOUR decision to make a career out of it. What does the nation get to hear for all this ? All the cribbing your family does on the hardships they face because you are
in the military. Get real ! Sit them down and tell them that you are not fit for living the average middle class life that most of the country lives. And show them the reality and what a common man goes through. Of course, only
if you yourself know. I know most people serving the armed forces have done so for generations. So I won’t blame you if your parents never sat your sorry ass down and told you what real life is all about. Carry on, in the infinite
ignorance of the real life challenges 90% of the nation faces.

Bereft of honesty, the organization is infested with scams. I started hearing about it when there was a coffin scam for slain soldiers. I could not believe that a politician hand in glove with the concerned departments in teh military
could think of pulling this off. I mean, a person is dead. I really wonder what else goes on in a mind which can think of profiteering even when organizing for a coffin ! I have seen first hand the coast guard and the little navy boats
selling diesel to fishermen. No wonder they are not actually patrolling our coasts letting terrorists like Kasab and his clan into the country. Adarsh land scam. Wife swapping scam. You just have to google for scams and the other side
of the – what was supposed to be the most honorable organisation – shows up.
I say out source our military requirements to the US. This way, the budget on military spending is limited.
Politicians aren’t bribed by ammo manufacturers. It is almost certain they will do a better job than the mob we have.

Do you know why people in the US love their military ? It is for a lot of reasons I mention above. They are not raping women in trains
They are really serving the country and its people. They get some benefits (like college fees) that I know of yet take a humble pride in being who they are.
It is almost impossible to expect this from the Indian armed forces. Invictus games did not invite the Indian military ! Why ? And why didn’t the honchos think of taking this up.
For their men. Is their pain not real ? Do Indian soldiers not get PTSD ? I have a feeling, everyone
accepts the open secret. Most soldiers have traded their souls. For the benefits, I suppose. What PTSD ?

There are some men and women who genuinely want to serve and protect the nation. For them, I feel sorry. I feel sorry that you don’t have the required support system. An honest machinery
to help you achieve what you want. One option can be to migrate to a better country, adopt it and protect their land. For those who still carry on and have the unbreakable will to guard this nation ruled by spineless politicians – I salute you.
