SPEAKING OF THE WEALTHY IMMIGRANTS BEING RECRUITED FOR THEIR JOB CREATING TALENTS, I WAS THINKING OF A POSTER-CHILD FOR THIS CROWD WHEN THE PERFECT EXAMPLE CAME TO ME.......THE INDIAN STUDENT AT RUTGERS WHO EXPOSED HIS GAY ROOMATE ON THE INTERNET. I THINK HE CAPTURED THE ESSENCE OF THESE 1% BY SAYING EARLY ON, WHEN ASKED IF HE WAS SORRY HIS ACTIONS LED TO A DEATH.......'I DON'T CARE ABOUT ANYTHING BUT MONEY.....MAKING MONEY IS WHAT I CARE ABOUT'. HE WAS OBVIOUSLY BUILDING HIS WALL STREET RESUME! HE IS THE POSTER-CHILD FOR THIS IMMIGRANT PUSH. LATER, WHEN SOMEONE TOOK TIME TO EXPLAIN TO HIM WHAT THE WORD 'CONTRITE' MEANS AND THAT IT WOULD GET HIM OUT OF JAIL.....HE DISCOVERED CONTRITION.
Kaliope Parthemos, a former social worker and public defender and long-time aide to Baltimore Mayor Stephanie C. Rawlings-Blake, as Deputy Mayor for Economic and Neighborhood Development is leading the immigration stage of the 'New Economy'. She demonstrated the fact that she spoke several languages as did some of her international staff. You see, the 1% no longer see America as a nation, they see it as a development zone and you will need to talk in tongues to move these financial giants!

So, these private non-profits like the Giving groups are simply NGOs and are structured just the same as ones found in Pakistan or the Congo for the same purpose. We can now relate to those countries wanting these groups out. These non-profits are also the same as ALEC as I said yesterday....we have a hybrid of the two. I just want to introduce you to them below:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
. (January 2012) A non-governmental organization (NGO) is a legally constituted organization created by natural or legal persons that operates independently from any form of government. The term originated from the United Nations (UN), and is normally used to refer to organizations that are not a part of the government and are not conventional for-profit business. In the cases in which NGOs are funded totally or partially by governments, the NGO maintains its non-governmental status by excluding government representatives from membership in the organization. The term is usually applied only to organizations that pursue wider social aims that have political aspects, but are not openly political organizations such as political parties.
The number of internationally operating NGOs is estimated at 40,000. National numbers are even higher: Russia has 277,000 NGOs;India is estimated to have around 3.3 million NGOs in year 2009, which is one NGO per less than 400 Indians, and many times the number of primary schools and primary health centres in India.[4
NOW, DO YOU HEAR YOUR THIRD WAY DEMOCRATIC POLITICIAN SHOUTING LOUDLY AND STRONGLY AGAINST THIS TENDENCY TOWARD CORPORATE WRITING OF CONGRESSIONAL LAWS THROUGH ALEC?....AND IN FACT WRITING FINANCIAL REFORM WHICH WE KNOW IS GOING BADLY FOR THE PEOPLE. NO, YOU WON'T HEAR THEM , BECAUSE THEY ARE HERE IN BALTIMORE/MARYLAND WELCOMED BY GOV. O'MALLEY, MAYOR RAWLINGS-BLAKE, YOUR MARYLAND ASSEMBLY AND BALTIMORE CITY COUNCIL.
THIS IS THIRD WAY.....CLINTON, OBAMA, AND O'MALLEY/CUOMO...THEY AREN'T CENTRISTS....THEY ARE CORPORATE POLITICIANS.
AMERICAN LEGISLATIVE EXCHANGE COUNCIL

ALEC’s national Task Forces serve as public-policy laboratories where legislators develop model policies to use across the country. The eight Task Forces commission research, publish issue papers, convene workshops and issue alerts, and serve as clearinghouses of information on free market policies in the states.
Unique to ALEC Task Forces is the public-private partnership, a synergistic alliance that identifies issues and then responds with common sense, results-oriented policies. Legislators welcome their private sector counterparts to the table as equals, working in unison to solve the challenges facing our nation.
The centerpiece to the Task Forces is ALEC’s model legislation. To date, ALEC has considered, written, and approved hundreds of model bills, resolutions, and policy statements. To learn more about one of our nine Task Forces, contact any of our Task Force Directors.

Now, when you are building a military complex for an autocratic government Israel is a good place to go for immigrant recruits. After all, Manhatten and Israel are the two most heavily militarized zones in world history.......makes you think they might be doing something bad........I'M JUST SAYING!!!! So with domestic drones flying overhead and NGOs everywhere, one has to think, there is something undemocratic happening here.

Congress approves visas for Israeli investors Congress adds Israel to list of countries eligible for investor visas
By Associated Press | Associated Press – Fri, May 25, 2012 11:34 AM EDT WASHINGTON
(AP) -- Congress has passed legislation adding Israel to the list of more than 75 countries eligible for temporary visas given to foreign nationals who invest in U.S.-based businesses. The Senate approved the measure by voice vote on Thursday, sending it to President Barack Obama for his signature. E-2 investor visas are given to foreign nationals who come to the United States in order to develop businesses in which they have invested. Rep. Howard Berman, sponsor of the bill that passed the House last March on a 371-0 vote, said Israel is a global leader in such areas as defense technologies, medicine, agriculture and clean energy, and its investments would create American jobs. The California Democrat said that between 2000 and 2010, direct investment from Israel totaled $58.5 billion.
UNLIKE MANHATTAN, BALTIMORE IS JUST STARTING ITS SECURITY BUILDUP, SO LOCAL POLITIANS ARE OPENED TO MORE PHYSICAL DANGER. HERE IN BALTIMORE YOU'LL SEE THE MAYOR'S BODYGUARD ENTERING THE WHOLEFOODS GROCERY TO DO A COMPLETE CHECK OF THE STORE BEFORE THE MAYOR CAN ENTER AND OUR BALTIMORE CITY SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT ALONZO HAS A BODYGUARD/DRIVER THAT PAYS A SALARY PLACING HIM IN THE 5% BRACKET.........THAT'S HOW YOU GET INTO THE TOP NOW THAT THE MARKET WILL BE ENDING MOST PUBLIC OFFERINGS! SUPPLIANTS WILL DO AS WELL.
NEWS City deputy mayor's Mercedes defaced outside her Baltimore County home
By Justin Fenton and Julie Scharper | January 23, 2012
The personal vehicle of Baltimore's deputy mayor was vandalized over the weekend while it was parked outside of her Baltimore County home, county police said. Baltimore County police confirmed that Baltimore Deputy Mayor Kaliope Parthemos contacted police at the White Marsh precinct Sunday afternoon to report that her 2011 Mercedes E-350 had been defaced with red magic marker and an expletive directed at "Kelly," which is a nickname. The incident occurred sometime between Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, she told police.
I WOULD SUGGEST THAT PRIVATIZING PUBLIC EDUCATION AND USING CHARTER SCHOOLS AS SOCIAL ENGINEERING TOOLS MAY BE THE REASON ALONZO HAS A BODYGUARD........I THINK IT OBVIOUS THAT A PROBLEM EXISTS WHEN OUR LEADERS FEEL THEY NEED BODYGUARDS!
Alonso needs a driver
March 10, 2012 Your editorial criticizing Baltimore schools CEO Andrés Alonso for his driver's pay is misleading ("Driving Mr. Alonso," March 6). Baltimore Sun
As Philadelphia's former superintendent, who also worked 12 to 15 hours a day, I know having a security officer who provides transportation is more effective and less expensive than hiring additional staff with benefits.
A driver permits the CEO to answer scores of emails and phone calls and save time looking for parking spaces. It is far more productive to pay attention to things that matter to our children's education.
You acknowledge these reasons but then suggest that Dr. Alonso drive himself more often. What proportion of emails or phone calls should he leave unanswered? How does he decide which stops should include the extra time to look for a parking space? Which trips do not require security? The little amount that might be saved is not worth the loss in productivity and safety as the CEO works on behalf of our children.
Editorial space on a trivial topic does not improve education. Use your influence on strategies that have demonstrated improved outcomes — three-year-old prekindergarten; extra instructional time; support for quality teaching; home visitors for at risk families with newborns; and community schools.
Or, take editorial space to say thanks again to Mr. Alonso for supporting policies that have reduced dropouts; improved academic achievement; moved cash from the central administration into schools; created an imaginative $1.2 billion school construction program; and negotiated a model teacher contract.
Finally, as an urban superintendent (with a driver) and twelve years as Maryland's state superintendent (without a driver), I know from experience that there is a significant difference between the daily activities of the two, justifying the additional support for Baltimore's superintendent.
Ultimately, we should judge the CEO by the success of our students. Editorials like the one you wrote verge on being whiny. The Sun has been and should be better than that.
