He'll never give you a straight answer, you'll need to keep after him. And you are really good at it.

Just a typical, obnoxious foreigner who is ONLY in England for the money.

No shortages of types like that in most Western countries. They feed off the largesse of the host countries, and spit in the face of the people who took them in.

When they get caught out at it, they simply scream "racism". Spouting his disdain and contempt for the native residents of his new home, he nonetheless feels outraged that he is treated as an outsider.

The British lad who delivered his "Mango Lassi" to him, probably referred to him as a wog with a picnic table cloth on his head, when he got together with his mates later

His own attitude is his biggest problem in Britain. He is his own worst enemy

He apparently has emigrated from some hellhole like Lahore, and taken the sympathy for the Islamic terrorists with him in his baggage.

It didn't get caught at the baggage check, unfotunately, so it is there. Too bad for Britain.

And the Swiss bankrolled the Nazi arms build up to WWII.

Hardly the bastion of neutrality they are portrayed as in world history.

Punjabi,

The example Bruce cited was generic, not specific to you. For example, ask yourself the question from the perspective of the Swiss and their present perceived political predicament.

How is it hypocrisy to suggest that the consequence of an immigration policy in a specific country may be reviewed and modified if the intended result is not the actual outcome? The intent, as expressed by the Swiss people, is for their immigration policy to improve the standard of living for the Swiss people as a whole. They are not experiencing that outcome, as they see things, and are proposing a change to the immigration policy. I fail to see how the changes they are proposing, in spite of the racist political ads, is actually racist. If the new policy is only applied to Muslims or dark skinned people, then it is being used to promote a racist agenda.

As for racism being bad for Capitalism, and the perception that what is good for Capitalism in a generic and non-specific sense is automatically good for the population of the Swiss or some other nation, I think you are missing a few links in the chain of logic. When any nation perceives any policy is not in their best interests they are free to change the policy, and will. Capitalism won't be thrown out, but it will be controlled and regulated when it is perceived to be detrimental to the greater good of the country.

In the end, racism is a poor explanation for the Swiss initiative. A better description would be an attempt to ensure survival of what it is to be Swiss. Jim

So, we finally have a photo of Punjabi, and it explains an awful lot, doesn't it?

"Negotiating with Obama is like playing chess with a pigeon, the pigeon knocks over all the pieces, on the board and then struts around like it won the game."
Vladimir Putin

"They have gun control in Cuba. They have universal health care in Cuba. So why do they want to come here?"
Paul Harvey 8/31/94
