I just saw the movie “2016: Obama’s America” and I thought it was the most ignorant xenophobic piece of propaganda I have ever seen. There are so many ignorant comments in this movie that I cannot understand why D'Souza is called a scholar. Throughout the movie he flings baseless accusations at President Obama for being anti-colonialist, but I would like to know how this movie is going to play in India, D'Souza's birthplace, where colonialism is still a recent memory and a very sore topic. As it has been throughout history in most of the countries in the world.
One of his many ignorant comments comes while he’s trying to explain the evil and the roots of President Obama’s alleged anti-colonialism and D’Souza refers to black people in America as indigenous. Really? You’d think a scholar from India would know the meaning of that word since it’s basically the name of his country. I’ve never seen a dictionary that defines indigenous as being violently kidnapped from your birth country, your family and your culture, and being transported in chains, against your will, whipped and starved for months while forced to row yourself across an ocean towards an unknown land where, if you survived the gruesome journey, you’d be sold into a hellish nightmare to be held prisoner under subhuman conditions and exploited as a slave with less rights than cattle. That is not indigenous. Indigenous is not something you become. You, and your people, either are indigenous to a place, or you never will be. Just like D’Souza will never be indigenous to the USA, because he’s indigenous to India. So like millions of others in this country (myself included), he’s an immigrant, and unlike the millions of Africans who were brought to the Americas as slaves, he is a willing immigrant.
D’Souza is also inconsistent in his fear-mongering. On one hand he demonizes President Obama for being anti-colonialist, while on the other hand, he tries to disparage George Obama for suggesting Kenya might have been wise to tolerate British rule until the Brits had done more development for his country. So can someone named Obama hold a view about colonialism that D’Souza does not find detestable?
In spite of D’Souza’s leading questions and desperate innuendos, the interview with the President’s half-brother, George, was a rare pleasant moment in this movie. I enjoyed catching glimpses of our president in the younger Obama’s face and demeanor. The resemblance is also evident in the grace and wit George Obama demonstrated while dealing with this hateful hack.
Another point D’Souza raises as evidence of this imaginary conspiracy that is apparently happening in President Obama’s head, is that young Barack learned along the way, that people tended to like him more if he was polite and friendly, instead of the dreaded angry black man. Wow! What a revelation. Well, welcome to the world of non-white, non-wealthy males, Mr. D’Souza. The only people who never had to learn to be polite and friendly in order to be accepted are the people who are in charge. Everyone else has been taught that lesson along the way and usually very early on in life. Black parents still teach their children, sons especially, to be polite and smile so they don’t get shot by the LAPD or the NYPD or any of the many PD’s that regularly shoots innocent black men. Little girls of every color are still taught to be polite and smile and never disagree with a man or beat him at any contest, or risk becoming an old maid. Maybe someone tried to teach young D’Souza this lesson and he resented the idea that he had to put on an act of acquiescence to be accepted by the class, or in his case, the caste in charge. Newsflash: We all resent having to do that! And you know who has had to do that throughout history, Mr. D’Souza? People under colonial rule… Your parents.
Unfortunately, many people who see this movie will walk away with the impression that it is based on the President’s autobiography because his own voice narrates parts of it. But make no mistake; this movie is not based on any of President Obama’s books. It is based on D’Souza’s books. That is the very first credit in the movie. “Based on the books: ‘2016: Obama’s America’ and ‘The Roots of Obama’s Rage’”, both written by D’Souza, the writer, director, narrator and self-elected leading man of this movie. (And he put himself in almost every scene.) The audio portions that D’Souza has surgically removed from the President’s audio version of his beautiful book, “Dreams From My Father”, if one is able to listen to them objectively, are just narration of his life story which we have known since his book first came out in 1995. But the way that D’Souza frames each phrase of the President’s voice to accommodate his prejudiced hysteria, is to say the least, despicable.
This movie is total fiction. It is Racist Propaganda. These are not facts. This is an envious character assassination from a self-loathing Indian who is trying to curry favor (pun intended) with the racist segment of white wealthy America. The whole movie is a self-aggrandizing ego trip comparing himself to the President: "We're both the same skin tone", he says; "We were both born in the same year. We both married in the same year. We both went to Ivy League schools.” His envy is seething throughout this entire ill-informed movie. D’Souza’s only claim to fame is creating vehicles of hatred against a man with whom he shares so many similarities, yet whose achievements and popularity he knows he could never even approximate.I just saw the movie “2016: Obama’s America” and I thought it was... more
After walking around one early evening trying to decide what my taste bud feels for, I found this place restaurant called "MORE" around Grove street in downtown Jersey City. It is an Asian restaurant that serves Thai and Japanese food. The restaurant is very close to the Grove Path Station, about three blocks away.
From the outside, the place has an appealing vibe that makes you want to check out the inside. The place is small but quaint, a family own business restaurant. The servers were friendly and attentive; they were quick to greet us at the door and seated us right away.After walking around one early evening trying to decide what my taste bud feels for, I... more

Yep, a bonkers week in a bonkers town called Holly-weird. Only in L.A. baby!
An extract found in the bright yellow curry spice turmeric can kill off cancer cells, scientists have shown.
The chemical - curcumin - has long been thought to have healing powers and is already being tested as a treatment for arthritis and even dementia.
Now tests by a team at the Cork Cancer Research Centre show it can destroy gullet cancer cells in the lab.
Cancer experts said the findings in the British Journal of Cancer could help doctors find new treatments.
Dr Sharon McKenna and her team found that curcumin started to kill cancer cells within 24 hours.
The cells also began to digest themselves, after the curcumin triggered lethal cell death signals.
Dr McKenna said: "Scientists have known for a long time that natural compounds have the potential to treat faulty cells that have become cancerous and we suspected that curcumin might have therapeutic value."
Dr Lesley Walker, director of cancer information at Cancer Research UK, said: "This is interesting research which opens up the possibility that natural chemicals found in turmeric could be developed into new treatments for oesophageal cancer.
"Rates of oesophageal cancer have gone up by more than a half since the 70s and this is thought to be linked to rising rates of obesity, alcohol intake and reflux disease so finding ways to prevent this disease is important too."
Each year around 7,800 people are diagnosed with oesophageal cancer in the UK. It is the sixth most common cause of cancer death and accounts for around five percent of all UK cancer deaths.An extract found in the bright yellow curry spice turmeric can kill off cancer cells,... more
Curry may be the national dish but the government are stopping the chefs who make the best from coming to the UK. The draconian points based system is now turning thousands away and making many ineligible to stay. The UK Borders Police are using their increasing powers to raid and round up more people – including chefs, their families and ‘ethnic’ diners in restaurants. On the streets of East London, the public and restaurant managers are disgusted and WORLDwrite demands we let everyone in.Curry may be the national dish but the government are stopping the chefs who make the... more
Having a couple of curries a week could help keep dementia away, at least that's what scientists think after a new study.
Indian-born American expert Professor Murali Doraiswamy said: "You can modify a mouse so that at about 12 months its brain is riddled with plaques. If you feed it a curcumin-rich diet it dissolves these plaques. The same diet prevented younger mice from forming new plaques.Having a couple of curries a week could help keep dementia away, at least that's... more
The world's most expensive curry has been launched despite the credit crunch - and costs £2,000 a portion.
The Samundari Khazana curry, meaning Seafood Treasure, is a mix of caviar, sea snails, a whole lobster and even edible gold. The posh nosh is being served up at upmarket London eatery Bombay Brasserie.
The chef prepares the dish with Devon crab and white truffle, while his assistant painstakingly presses gold leaf to half a cherry tomato filled with Beluga caviar. He then places four sea snails - abalone - which cost almost £300 a kilo, into a sizzling pan. Another chef coats an £80 Scottish lobster in gold, while a third deftly hollows out four shelled quails' eggs before filling them with more caviar.
The five tiny shavings of truffle cost £90 - that is £19 each - while the shimmering, edible gold is priced at £1,000 for just 10g.
The curry has been created to coincide with the DVD launch of Oscar-winning flick Slumdog Millionaire, which is set in India.The world's most expensive curry has been launched despite the credit crunch -... more

So, I've decided to do things a little different this year. I'm doing my New Years resolution for the month before New Years instead of after (who the hell lasts more than a month with those things anyways). So I'm not drinking till New Years eve, and then I'm gonna drink a whole bunch (if you see me New Years night wandering the streets talking to an invisible man about where to get some tacos please feel free to put me in a cab and send me home).
Anyways, in the spirit of sobriety, let's make fun of people that are drunk and high.
Bahahaha... Wow, the German Army is too drunk and fat to fight the Taliban, what a great way to protest war - eat and drink yourself to the point of military uselessness. America, let's eat and drink our way to peace! Oh wait, oh yeah.. We're America, all we do is eat and drink. Well, keep it up America, you're doing a great job!
On to the more sinister side of war partying :
It looks like the terrorists that rampaged in Mumbai last week used injections of cocaine and LSD to help keep them going. Holy crap that is the scariest thing I can ever imagine - hate-filled coked-out war mongers tripping balls on a mission from god to destroy everything. The jihadists of yesteryear look tame compared to this new breed. I for one am terrified.
Finally, after all this partying.. What better to do than to have a spicy, steaming hot bowl of curry.
After a suspect allegedly consumed his drug supply the police wanted to get their hands on it. Rather than be patient, they decided to feed him an array of curries to speed up the process. Those cops are going to be the happiest anyone has ever been about diarrhea. Gross.
So what's the lesson of all this? I guess it's... It's.... "War ain't no reason to stop the party; being force fed curry by police however, is."
