Gremach Infrastructure's Google India Attack, Mozambique Coal Baron's Squalor (tags)

The original purpose of this article post was to point out that India's Gremach Infrastructure Equipments & Projects Ltd that is threatening to sue Google because of an anonymous poster 'using the name 'Toxic Writer' criticized the company on blogger.com, a site that allows individuals to create blogs....' is no more than an India stock market version of U.S. incorporated penny stock pump and dump scams and has lost 80% or so of investor money in the last few months.If anything their own investors it should be sueing them. However when I say 'investors' -I do not mean such international stock sharks and hedge fund entities as Merrill Lynch or Templeton Funds or Eureopean Swiss Finance Corporation or Caytman Island based LB India Holdings Cayman II Ltd., offshores.These international securities parasites are in my opinion part of the problem and have aided and abetted Gremach and its insiders and promoters,such as or particularly Mr. Ratanlal Tamakuwala and Mr Rishi Raj Agarwal,to take retail or small investors for a ride.

Vets REJECTED from Long Beach Vet's Parade Participation. DO SOMETHING! (tags)

This is in response to the article written in the Long Beach Press Telegram regarding the three groups of veterans and their families who were REJECTED from participating in the Veterans Day Parade, even though they and their families served and are continuing to serve their country with honor. My son just returned from his second tour in Iraq. We both believe in the Constitution ,which includes the right to speak out against this war. It is something that he is proud to fight for and will continue to follow orders if he is sent back to Iraq. While watching the entire parade from the sidelines, I was saddened to see that there were no participants from the war in Iraq and Afghanistan at all! That means that the only participants of this war that wanted to march in the parade were excluded. The city, as well as Val Lerch, who continued to try to make this a political issue, bear responsibility for this lack of support for our soldiers currently serving in this war. How could Council member Lerch, a proud member of this committee, overlook this glaring omission if he supports the troops? By the way, Iraq Veterans Against the War, Military Families Speak Out, and Veterans for Peace carried no signs whatsoever. It was very important to us that we honor all the troops, and we enthusiastically applauded all participants. Also, please note, we had plenty of enthusiastic responses from the crowd and a few public displays of apology. This is an important point, because the city and committee knew we marched in last year’s parade without incident and that we are valid members of the military, unlike other groups like the medical insurance van, etc. This is why several cities, including La Palma, Palm Springs, Santa Monica, and other cities nationwide were inviting our groups to march in their parade; they understand that you can support the troops but not the administration’s policies that continue to blindly send our loved ones to die in a war that should never have happened in the first place. Apparently, the Veterans Day Committee and the city of Long Beach do not understand the difference. --Pat Alviso, Military Families Speak Out, Long Beach, CA, USA, Pat Alviso & Jeff Merrick, Military Families Speak Out Orange County & South Bay Chapter, www.mfsooc.org www.myspace.com/ocmfso 562-833-8035 Support Our Troops.

Now for the wonderful citizens living in Los Angeles. For more information on me you shold contact Alec Baldwin His helping me was very interesting. Alex is a great Patriot. His studio is in Santa Monica. He and Jennifer were woking on a great movie project about Robert F Simone. Alec Baldwin knows a winning script always. Jennifer is the brains behind this fantactic movie that will be an oscar winner. Her choice of music from Tosca is perfect and Jennifer Lynn Masaryk Ellis deserves the best. That is why Phil Spector asked her to marry him back in 2004. Phil is innocent and Bruce Cutler is not the correct lawyer for him. Roger Rosen from Century City and Robert Shapiro are instead. I would love to see the press give Phil a chance. How about the press cover the problems he has had to bear losing a child to an inept hospital in Los Angeles. Phil is a genius and he can not harm a soul. I know so much more than you could ever know. The tazering by the LAPD is cruel and uncalled for. Well LA is a police state and that will change once I testify against Dick Cheney. By the way Phil Spector is the co-writer to the song Imagine. Enjoy the link.

The case received much media attention in recent weeks after the release of tape recordings of the 911 calls and a hospital video showing Rodriguez in the hours before her death—including segments showing a janitor mopping up around Rodriguez as she writhed in pain on the floor of the emergency room.

To narrow down the focus of my documentary, I decided to use photos of people and the bag or bags that they were carrying. The bag a person carries can lead to many assumptions about the person carrying the bag. In some cases, the owner of the bag may not be the person who carries the bag, though I believe the bags shown in Baggage are all carried by their new or longtime owners.
