    Bloomberg lashes out at "xenophobic" antiillegal a

    CRITICS IN CHINA SPEECH
    By DAVID SEIFMAN City Hall Bureau Chief

    December 13, 2007 -- Anti-immigrant sentiment in the United States is imposing "staggering damage" to the entire nation, Mayor Bloomberg declared yesterday in China.

    "We live in a much more international world," the mayor said following a speech at Fudan University in Shanghai.

    "The xenophobia that unfortunately seems to be gripping parts of America is really very dangerous. One of the things you realize is how dependent we are on each other."

    His comments in China were the strongest he's ever delivered in defense of immigration.

    "Immigrants built our city and country," the mayor said.

    "Consider this: Half of the Americans who won Nobel Prizes in physics in the past seven years were born abroad. More than half the people with Ph.D.s working in America are immigrants . . . In fact, a quarter of all Silicon Valley companies were started by entrepreneurs from just two countries: China and India."

    Mayoral aides said Bloomberg's comments were spurred by a wave of anti-immigrant sentiment in some towns, cities and states and weren't intended as political commentary.

    Geez, does the pandering ever stop!

    Note: Bloomberg made no distinction between immigrants and illegal immigrants.

    Interestingly enough, they were all LEGAL! They also didn't suck up public benefits and supported themselves.

    It's the ILLEGAL and uneducated aliens we don't need to be supporting. They are here against the laws of this land and need to be kicked out.

    There's a big FREAKIN' difference between the highly educated immigrants who came to the U.S. LEGALLY, assimillated into the American culture, and contributed great things to mankind.....vs. the illliterate, uneducated PEASANTS who invade this country illegally and then leech off the American taxpayer, drain our social services, introduce long-ago eradicated diseases, lower American wages, and drop anchor babies like pennies in a fountain.

    There's simply no comparison AT ALL!!!
    Calderon was absolutely right when he said...."Where there is a Mexican, there is Mexico".

    Are you trying to tell me that Andrew Grove and Sergy Brin didn't sneak into this country in the cargo holds of planes traveling to the U.S. from Eastern Europe?

    I'm shocked. Shocked I tells ya.

    China is preparing for war against the United States, they are fully loaded with nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons. Their hackers are trying their best to raid the deep security computers at the Pentagon on a regular basis.

    To top things off, we are being invaded at home courtesy of mega rich sellouts like Mayor Bloomberg who is in China giving anti American speeches.

    It has become clear that Bloomberg is one of the high level traitors that will need to be put on trial for this fiasco one day.

    Here's a more expansive report on his speech to the Chicoms hierarchy:

    http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2007/12/ ... omberg.php

    "In the U.S., our challenge is to open our labor markets to more foreign workers, while in China, it seems the challenge is to open capital markets to more foreign investment," Bloomberg said.

    "Foreign investment creates the domestic jobs that will help keep educated Chinese men and women from leaving the country," he said...

    Protectionism hurts competitiveness, in both countries, he said.

    "In the long run, protectionist policies — and policies promoting economic nationalism — only hurt the industries they are trying to help. Certainly, that was true of American protection of the auto industry and Japanese protection of its banking industry," he said.

    If anyone has McAfee AV installed, somewhere in the their menu structure is an option which shows a map of the 'most recent' hacking / virus activity.
    (There are other sites that do the same too, I'm sure...)

    The last time I checked this, all almost ALL of the activity was based in and nearby to China. W stands correct.

    Strange I worked and retired in Silicon Valley I saw a lot of start up companies come and go, I retired from one of the largest but I don't remember any from China or India; Japan yes but not China or India.
