French Crowds March for Job Security

Liberté, égalité, mais FUCK fraternité!!

What does job security in France mean anyway? The government guarantees that you have Johns?

While complacent, lazy, fat and useless Americans bemoan the unending rounds of job layoffs so that other lazy, fat and useless corporate overlords can reap wild profits via outsourcing them, it seems we’re down to the French to show the U.S. who’s the wussy now.

This striking news report today from Paris details French demonstrators marching for job security and pay raises from elitist government and corporate leaders:

“Hundreds of thousands of teachers, nurses, factory workers and plumbers marched through French cities on Thursday to demand pay rises and protection for jobs.
The demonstrations were the high point of a nationwide one-day strike called by France's eight main trade unions to try to persuade President Nicolas Sarkozy and business leaders to do more to help ordinary people overcome the economic crisis.”

Liberté, égalité, mais FUCK fraternité!!

Bill Gates Seeks New Positions from Gay Swami for H-1B Pleasure Trysts

Welcome to this special edition of The Gay Swami Times, Vol. 3, Issue 3. (Note that the graphic above sports a typo which reads “Issue 92” and not “Issue 3” because we took the leap, on a dare - to outsource this work and are still on hold to consultant “Kevin” in Hyderabad, demanding our money back.) Click here for previous releases.

“Coop’s Corner” Charles Cooper at CNET News blows the lid off confirmed reports that Bill Gates is seeking more H-1Bs. Read the full CNET expose Layoff news won't deter techs on H-1B here.

Microsoft's Bill Gates’ uncontrollable, insatiable appetite for more H-1B romps has reached a new low as The Reamer of Redmond said Monday that Microsoft had “no plans to change its position on H-1Bs.”

“Hahahaha, you’re ALL monkeys to me!” wildly moans an ecstatic, alpha ape Bill Gates, as he defies the experts once again, making John Chambers look like an amateur with his latest solicitation for even more H-1B lovers to ride him and his movie downloading loving board member(s) like Hanuman, the Monkey King, kneeling before Lord Rama.

Charles Cooper writes:

“The Black Monday announcement of more than 71,000 jobs lost is a stunner. Today it was Texas Instruments and Sprint Nextel adding their names to the listof tech companies handing out pink slips. Tomorrow? Anybody's guess.

In uncertain times, the only sure bet is that Congress is going to come under renewed pressure to revisit its practice of granting temporary visas to foreign workers. Already, Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) is pressing Microsoft to give Americans priority over foreigners working in this country with H-1Bs.

"My point is that during a layoff, companies should not be retaining H-1B or other work visa program employees over qualified American workers," Grassley wrote on Friday after Microsoft announced its first across-the-board layoffs. "Our immigration policy is not intended to harm the American work force. I encourage Microsoft to ensure that Americans are given priority in job retention. Microsoft has a moral obligation to protect these American workers by putting them first during these difficult economic times."

Microsoft said Monday it had no plans to change its position on H-1Bs.”

Senate Confirms Timothy Geithner

Obama's Treasury Secretary Tax-Cheat Czar, Timothy Geithner

Criminal Defense Attorney J. Tony Serra
(Special thanks to

For Immediate Release

WASHINGTON - The Senate voted this evening to confirm Timothy Geithner, President Barack Obama's pick for treasury secretary, after delaying a vote because Geithner failed to pay some of his federal taxes in 2001. And a few other years, too, which the above link fails to mention. But don’t worry. Since Americans won’t have any money left to pay them anyway due to the unrelenting, downward spiral of job cuts due to outsourcing and greedy corporate profit hording, savvy President Obama made an even more savvy political pick by selecting an admitted tax cheat as a role model for the nation’s taxpayers:

“Under normal circumstances, failing to pay your taxes is a surefire way to torpedo your nomination to a Cabinet position”, but Obama’s official decision was based upon “ the race to halt the economic slide before the midterm elections in 2010 which is so tight that President Barack Obama's choice for treasury secretary, New York Federal Reserve Bank chief Timothy Geithner, got a pass on his tax troubles from the president and most senators, Democrats and Republicans.”

Under “normal” circumstances”? Oh, these experts. We’ll just have to trust them.

And what does the midterm election have to do with bailing out a bunch of Wall Street bankers and investors who stash money away where no one will find it? Never mind the fact that $25 Billion of it went to the impeccably managed Citibank, the world’s largest money laundering Queen with over 300 tax haven subsidiaries.

But hey – if Geithner gets a pass, so it goes for Joe Taxpayer, too! Oh that crazy Obama -- can it be that our president is not only a political genius but an altruist, too? Who knew?

Who wanted this bailout again? Nobody! Got that? Except Bush, Congress, Obama and their Wall Street pals and paymasters who we never get to read about. Aside from the fact that U.S. citizens can’t even remotely pay back the ever escalating tab nor can any banks anywhere deal with the ponzi scheme leveraged pile-on that mortgages were turned into, this bailout or TARP is just feathering the nests of the CIA's favorite gangsta bankstas like Goldman Sachs and AIG before the final shooting match. Outfitting this fiscal pig in a bowler hat and tuxedo is bound to confuse the rubes who will go along with the show right up until the final curtain scene when the drawbridge gets pulled up along with the last scraps of your pensions and equity right along with it.

Despite the fact that legendary criminal defense attorney Tony Serra (whom I had the privilege of meeting at a Nader fundraiser in SF last year) who was sentenced to ten months in federal prison for tax evasion and ordered to pay $100,000 in restitution had to do the time, does Obama’s Geithner appointment signal a new direction for tax evasion prosecution for the masses?

Party on, plebes!

The Gay Swami Times: Vol. 2 Issue 2 February 2009

(Click on photo to enlarge)

Welcome back to our second special edition of The Gay Swami Times.

In our virgin kick-off
first issue last week, The Gay Swami explored the depths of man lust underpinning the intimate, behind the scenes trysts between American CEO John Chambers, Bill Gates and Indian outsourcing Satyam’s criminal, former CEO, B. Raju Ramalinga.

“It’s not just the bottom line these CEOs are after -- if you know what I’m saying...”

revealed one close source who requested anonymity.

Right after Intel’s CEO Andy Grove announced he was laying off 5,000 workers, CEO Bill “Ride Me Like a Yogi” Gates is slashing at least 5,000 employees from Microsoft’s payroll, too, so he can then turn around and hire an “infinite number” of H-1b visa holders from India! News reports explain:

“Although Microsoft plans to cut 5,000 jobs in total, its overall workforce is not expected to drop that much, as it continues to hire--albeit at a lower rate--in key areas.”

Why would Bill Gates prefer to stumble over newly-minted homeless American professionals along the sidewalks of America?

“The limp relationship with American IT guys is so over. Nobody gives a damn about them. They’re too much trouble. This layoff is just the start… I had to wait around for a while to see how Andy (Grove) over at Intel was going to hang onto his nuts, too. No, no, no, you don’t get it. You don’t understand economics or man crushes or ANYTHING. Indian guys are so much more flexible than these whiny, overeducated American guys with their wives and kids and mortgages and vacations -– Indians will do anything you want – ANYTHING. And hey, they’ll even work for free and do you know what else? With the Economy in the can the way it is now, I’m seriously thinking about taking them up on that one, too.”

Oh Gay Swami, what’s next?

Stay tuned next week for Issue 3 of “The Gay Swami Times” where The Gay Swami climbs all over a few surprisingly connected Beltway and Silicon Valley vc's in the upcoming, world exclusive special report “Man Crushes of Climate Change”.


Obama Meets Flintstone White House: New Staff Find White House in Tech Dark Ages

- Wilma Flintstone's Shorter Version of Michelle Obama's Jason Wu Inauguration Gown-

-Wilma Flintstone Boogies to Ashford & Simpson with Fred-

-President & First Lady Michelle Donning Longer Version of Wilma Flintstone's Dress-

Were those pterodactyl Bush administration staffers talking on shoe phones for the past eight years or what? Were these cavemen using smoke signals to place their midnight pizza orders? Are the automatic windows in the Oval Office still powered by monkeys?

Ann E. Kornblut reveals in this Washington Post article how incoming Obama staffers encountered a few pre-historic technology gaffes that arguably would make Fred Flintstone look like Steve Jobs:

“One member of the White House new-media team came to work on Tuesday, right after the swearing-in ceremony, only to discover that it was impossible to know which programs could be updated, or even which computers could be used for which purposes. The team members, accustomed to working on Macintoshes, found computers outfitted with six-year-old versions of Microsoft software. Laptops were scarce, assigned to only a few people in the West Wing. The team was left struggling to put closed captions on online videos.”

Former President George W. Bush’s 2005 Internet director, David Almacy, recalled having a week-long delay between his arrival at the White House and getting set up with a computer and a Blackberry:

"The White House itself is an institution that transitions regardless of who the president is," he said. "The White House is not starting from scratch. Processes are already in place."
Another newly-minted White House official, who arrived “breathless yesterday after being held up at the exterior gate”, discovered that he had *shock* no computer or telephone number! Recently called back from overseas duty, he ended up using his foreign cellphone."
For shame!

And how bad is this?

“A White House official whose transition cellphone was disconnected (not sure why) left a message temporarily referring callers to his wife's phone.”

(Haha! I’ll bet his wife was receiving hundreds of calls on the first day. Or none.)

For the few American white collar professionals or “ordinary people” (as President Obama refers to them) out there who ARE still working, there is still demand (at least from the White House) for technology software and solutions, despite at least 5,000 layoffs from profit hording companies like Microsoft, led by the infamous Bill “give me infinite numbers of H-1b visas” Gates, despite the layoffs, anyway.

To be sure, the heat is on and the Tech Lobby/Indian Lobby backed Obama will ensure that the White House will slay the Wooly Mammoth by soaking taxpayers for gazillions of dollars of all kinds of futuristic, techno-savvy IT software and gadgets for U.S. Government agencies which will be dispatched to break the Fourth Wall.

Crooks & Idiots

(Very Special Thanks to the First Lady of Soul)

Secretary of the Treasury Appointee Timothy Geithner

-The 44th President of the United States of America-
Barack Obama

Crooks & Idiots

The 44th president of the United States, Barack Obama, hand picked by the Tech Lobby which exerts growing control over emerging Clean & Green technologies in rapid search of government handouts to bolster their personal profits, was sworn in today and wants tax cheat Timothy Geithner sworn in tomorrow, despite the newly sworn-in president’s full knowledge of Geithner’s tax fraud which he swears he “just didn’t know” he committed. I swear, when does the culture of corruption stop? Many had hoped it would stop with the Bush administration and its cronies, who shamelessly used the Office of the People for its own personal piggy bank.

Is Geithner a crook? An idiot? Either way, or both – does he have any business running the Treasury? When did this nation slide into such a depraved cult of crook and idiot worshippers? Obama’s Geithner appointment has White House correspondent Byron York of the National Review raising this important question:

“If he were confirmed as treasury secretary, Geithner would, among other things, oversee the IRS, something that makes his tax problem all the more relevant to his confirmation. “This is the guy who heads up the IRS,” says the senator who is baffled by Geithner’s situation. “All the taxpayers look to him, and when he says, ‘Gee, I don’t know why’—does that become a defense?”

Why would Obama and his supporters want a tax cheat to run the U.S. Treasury?

How would a man of Geithner’s “financial sophistication” who came to the IMF after a stint working as a high-ranking official in the Treasury Department and later left the IMF head up the Federal Reserve Bank of New York make such mistakes on his taxes?

Is this what Obama means when he says he has selected the “best and brightest” to help him lead this country out of economic ruin?

Between the number of corporate welfare AIPAC loving, white collar American job killing “experts” appointed by Obama to head his cabinet to lead this country’s raging war on America’s white collar middle class and his millions of worshippers, you might say that this dynamic duo of lobbyist connected crooks and their idiotic followers are too big to fail.

With the empty albeit free promise of “hope” trumping what should be the promise of power and empowerment for the growing millions of white collar workers losing jobs, healthcare, housing and savings, who is Obama beholden to? His unquestioning supporters defend his every move, with the tired meme “he is inheriting an economic train wreck”, dismissing him of any fault from now until Kingdom Come.

Why won’t Obama promise white collar Americans that he will stop the wholesale sell out of jobs to H-1b visa and green card holders from other countries?

Even today, on this joyous, historic occasion today where the nation celebrates its first African American president, right after hearing his inaugural address, investors went back to selling stocks, sending the major indexes down sharply. Today’s New York Times reports:

“Traders on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange paused at times to watch the inauguration ceremony and President Barack Obama's remarks, but the transition of power did not erase investors' intensifying concerns about the struggling economy. At the close, the Dow Jones industrial average was down more than 330 points, or about percent, while the broader Standard & Poor's 500-stock index fell 5.2 percent.”

We do not need tax cuts. WE NEED OUR JOBS BACK! Stimulating this economy requires more than the dubiously lauded banker bailouts. If there is one thing Obama could do, it is to stop handing white collar jobs to India so that American citizens can get back to work in the fields they invested their educations in so that they can start spending money again on the big ticket items and autos and other bennies that this country’s economic survival depends upon. But the only lipservice Obama has paid to “jobs” is for a few blue collar, “shovel-ready” ones that don’t address the growing millions of white collar citizens who are being cut from payrolls all across the country. What Obama’s supporters fail to ask is whether Obama was elected to be president of the United States or India? Or Israel? During this Depression, this country can’t afford to settle for anything less than a president who will stand up for its citizens first.

It also remains to be seen whether the injection of taxpayer funds will translate into millions of clean green jobs. Ultimately, the stimulus package will only take clean power so far. The U.S. will need some kind of way to put a price on carbon, either through a carbon tax or a cap-and-trade system. And, if today’s whopping Dow Jones close of 7949 is any harbinger of what we can hope for, both those items will likely wait until the economy has leveled — and at this point, it’s easy to preclude what a “leveled” economy of Have and Have Nots will look like under the Obama administration.

Let’s hope this old-time habit of crooks and idiots running the country changes.

But, then again, “hope” is for free.

Party on, plebes!

Goodbye George! Give this Kid an Oscar!

U.S. Airways Jet Crash called “Miracle on the Hudson”

The Best Airline Pilot on the Planet, Pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger

Headshot of the Perp a.k.a. "Canada Goose"

Diagram of the Canada Goose
Pilot “Sully” a National Hero

New York – A US Airways Airbus A320 bound for Charlotte, N.C., crashed into the Hudson River this afternoon shortly after takeoff from LaGuardia Airport. All 155 passengers and crew on board were pulled to safety as the plane slowly sank into the river.

The emergency landing has been described as nothing short of a “miracle” as the highly skilled pilot of the jet, Pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, masterfully guided the aircraft down onto the river in a “controlled descent”, only after plowing into not one -- but at least two suspicious Canadian Geese who he flew into!

So what’s it like to have BOTH engines knocked out by a couple of Canadian Geese? That’s like having a fucking fly, well, fly right up both of your nostrils. At the same time.
Kaboom! Conk!

NTSB officials were on the scene to investigate, but the passengers and crew were in great hands with pilot Sully. This is one story that deserves a round of hero worship for a long time to come:

"He was phenomenal," passenger Joe Hart said. "He landed it — I tell you what — the impact wasn't a whole lot more than a rear-end (collision). It threw you into the seat ahead of you.
"Both engines cut out and he actually floated it into the river," he added.

Water landings are always scary, and require the best of conditions in addition to the best possible former U.S. AF pilots in town. Who can forget those poor bastards who crashed into the Florida Everglades where the passengers were met with crocodiles and other swamp vermin or the doomed flight that went down into the icy waters of the Potomac? Well, in addition to the 155 survivors of Flight 1549, we can all thank pilot Sully for a nightmare-free round of sleep tonight.

All I can say is, pilot Sully is the pilot I want flying MY plane from now on!

John Chambers, Bill Gates and Raju: The Gay Swami Times Special Edition

-The Gay Swami Times-
(Special Edition)

-John Chambers offering oral sex to two "businessmen" from Dubai-
A Mel Toast CEO Expose

Economic Times

Interview, 1 Nov 2007

Read the full story here on Cisco's CEO, John Chambers unconfirmed, "disruptive" partnership plans with Raju Ramalinga's Satyam. Chambers throws around the term "labour arbitrage" in an attempt to deny his forthright plans of screwing the American worker out of technology jobs:

"We are not using India for labour arbitrage and this is where we are different from our peers. We are here because India can help us launch disruptive business models globally. We will have 20% of our top leadership here in 5 years. Besides, you know how to partner, in your definition innovation is how to create win-win solutions, not just self-reliance. That’s dramatically different from other places."
--John Chambers, President & CEO, Cisco Systems


"India can help us launch disruptive business models globally."
"India, will guide innovations in future.”
“India will be the platform for globalization and growth for Cisco.”
--John Chambers, President & CEO, Cisco Systems

And what did Chambers give to Raju in exchange for these glowing remarks?

His exposed butt cheeks!

Happy 2009, Everybody!

Did you know that Silicon Valley has no *openly gay* executives and CEO’s?

That’s why many of them along with venture capitalists (a vc is somebody who knows how to inflate the value of a start-up and then rack up a bunch of money to spread around among themselves) who come here from the East coast marry a disproportionate number of grumpy old DAR’s (Daughters of the American Revolution) to be their beards. Even though a lot of them (2Truthy’s best friend is a DAR so not ALL of them are stuffy) are a bunch of unattractive, whiney old battle-axes who make sure “Paul” or “John” or “Colin” stay on rigid vegetarian diets of dangling tofu-ham shanks with ancho chili-pepper seasoned bulgher wheat and never, ever allow them to leave the house without perfectly creased, extra-tight Campagnolo Men's Carbon Bib bicycle shorts, the hidden cult of Silicon Valley’s secretive, in the closet gay executive/CEO community has spread to India where the practice of soliciting gay friendships can be maximized by throwing in a few stock options in exchange for a harem of willing, indentured servants to fulfill their otherworldly ponzi scheme fantasies.

Here is an exciting magazine called “The Gay Swami” that blows the lid off all the wealthy ones who want to be secret and even more wealthy so they hire slave workers.

Anyway, just a short hop from the city of San Francisco where some of the most creative minds in the industry live, the secretive, ponzi-schemy ones can be found about thirty five miles to the south with “Sand Hill Road” post office box addresses while the rest of the hard working, honest and REAL gay community (as I reported in this special segment: San Francisco Gay Pride Parade: Quincy Live from the Castro) struggles to keep their agency side, promo-pitching and copy-editing work from being outsourced to slavey boy workers during this country’s Great Depression.

Why is it that only the sneaky, bad people keep making the news and always get pleasant surroundings when they get arrested for their corporate crimes? Even Martha Stewart had only nice things to say about her pleasant stay in the slammer.

I have to go now and stake out a privately held, shadowy group of green technology investors’ attempt to get a local politician to seduce signatures from unsuspecting taxpayers so they can avoid paying money out of their own pockets to pay their salaries.

Well, for 2009, the New Year’s resolution for all closet ponzi schemers should be to come out of the closet and stop hiring slave labor.

Have a Nice Day,

Sick? No Insurance? Get Yourself Arrested

(Very special thanks to the Rolling Stones)

“Sick citizens who follow the law but lack health insurance can expect substandard care and financial ruin. Convicted felons, though, can look forward to free treatment and horticulture classes while they recuperate.”
-The Captive American-

Get yourself arrested!

Granted, this little exercise would not exactly apply to crooks like Maddoff or Skilling since they are deemed “successful” by most economic, ponzi-scheme yardsticks. But hey, if you are one of the increasing millions of educated white collar Americans in this country being sacked from your job because somebody on the TV told you that there is an American labor shortage (yes, this H-1b scam is LEGAL) and that’s why you are or will be replaced by somebody from far away to take your job and why you are now or will be unable to pay for healthcare, help is just a slammer away.

Our good friends at The Captive American report in this timely, pertinent article entitled Sick? No Insurance? Get Yourself Arrested that getting yourself arrested may well be the best thing you ever did if you have no health insurance and are sick. (Never mind having a job, as that train already left the station for Bangalore, courtesy your greedy Congress, Bill Gates, John Chambers, Hillary D-Punjab & Co.) For a more extensive list of "friends" who are kicking your ass and those of your kids to the curb, Citizen Carrie of Carrie's Nation offers some handy ones in The "Give 'Em Hell" Edition here.

Who knew? In this day and age when outsourcing, thuggery, skullduggery, graft, corruption and incivility are de rigueur, affecting the habits of lawless hillbillies and trailer trash may well be just the ticket to a better “American” way of life. This is so exciting!

By all accounts, Elaine Meinel Supkis has chronicled in her blog Culture of Life News how our brand new, shiny, happy pro-tech lobby president-elect who is pro-job outsourcing (wasn’t he elected to lead America and not India?) and his crack team of anti-American citizen, corporate welfare ho/administrators will do everything in their power to ensure that the neo-frat boy, globalist, Have and Have-Not caste system succeeds at job killing right here, and that America’s educated, white collar middle class will go down in history, as, well, going down...

Party on, plebes!

(Illustration special thanks to Elaine Meinel Supkis)

Happy New Year!

Every year, the United States pays Israel 5 billion dollars each year in “aid” to rummage through our military junkyard and grab anything they think they can use – old tanks, jets, nukes, land mines, and so on.

That’s why this year, my first New Year’s resolution is to not pay attention to whom Israel is bombing this week. Not only is it a colossal waste of taxpayer money, but it is ridiculous to believe that the people of this country affect foreign policy without the longarm of AIPAC to do their own bidding (never mind what’s best for the American people.)

As timing would have it, the incredible investigative journalist and illustrator extraordinaire, Elaine Meinel Supkis, had the same thing on her mind today also, as she writes in her excellent blog post DAILY KOS COMMUNITY WAR SCHIZOPHRENIA which details the gross inconsistencies between the way Israelis and Palestinians are treated and regarded. (You will also note that I shamelessly borrowed Elaine’s apropos illustration above.)

My second New Year’s resolution, indirectly related, is to not pay attention to the stock market in 2009.

Both of these resolutions follow the precept of don’t worry about what you can’t change; the U.S. government has always supported Israel regardless of who it was attacking any given week – Palestine, Lebanon, Egypt’s Seven Days War, and any other Middle East or Gulf State countries I’ve left out.

Didn’t they bomb a nuclear plant in Iran, too?

OK! So this is why I’m not going to pay attention to whom Israel is attacking today in 2009.

There are people who say cut Israel loose for 5 billion in annual U.S. military aid and duke it out with the muslims on their own. If they are truly God’s people, God will protect them. (I seem to remember having read that in a book somewhere…)

The Bread & Circus effect of U.S. citizens rooting for the Home Team, Israel, against the bad guys, Hamas, is just like a football game. The amount of emotion invested in rallying around the “home team” of Israel is way over the top. How does handing over 5 billion in U.S. tax dollars to Israel possibly help the people of this country?

As I’ve said, one of the best New Year’s resolutions of all is that I am not going to pay attention to whom Israel is attacking today in 2009.
