Mushy stuck forever

The latest –

Shaukat Aziz and Sh Rashid Ahmed – puppets of the present govt said today that our dear 5-year old “Dick”tator Prez Musharraf does not have to step down from power and they hoped that he would accept to retaining both the Military and Prez post, as no constitutional restrcitions exists.

YIKES – what is the world heading towards are we in the process of another 10-yr like ZIA rule that destroyed all sanity of Democracy – i think we are.

Mushy believes that once he goes all hell will break loose – MAYBE as then all those power hungry so called democrats the MNAs and MPAs will try to get the throne –

When musharraf came he wanted to EMPOWER the people – all he did was empower himself and his pockets –

GOD HELP US ALL


Oprah’s Pontiac Giveaway

You must have heard Oprah in her show gave away 276 brand new Pontiac’s for the 19th anniversary, estimated at almost US$ 8 Million. Though it was donated by GM but it sure did create stir world wide.
For GM the cost was equilavent to almost 50 prime time adverts but even that cannot create a stir as this stint simply has done – almost worth a 300 ads and a massve campaign overnight
Wish I could get on one of those giveaway shows


US Election Scorecard on Slate

As of 15the Sept Bush is leading the Presidential race by a solid lead of almost 70 Electoral votes (307-231)

Bush has 212 Solid votes and 95 closely contested wins

while

Kerry has 170 Solid and 61 closely contested wins

I hope these predictions stand overturned as my gutt tells me Bush should be OUT – but who am i to say – Pakistani, a third world citizen

BUT still am very PROUD to be a PAKISTANI

To love thy Child

Allow me to introduce my baby boy – Zaafir Habib Alvi. To say the least simply a bundle of joy.

I come home from work and walk into the ever joyous welcoming smile greeting me on the driveway, that simple act lasting for probably barely a minute washes away all the tensions from work. Not to say work is hectic – I love dentistry but even then its amazing.

I can’t expect that much love and affection from any other child except your own. Zaafir with his smelly diapers :) is still my twinkle twinkle star of my life – oops and also my wife Sadiqa (she’ll love the side note – wish me luck tonight)

Wide world of people – talk to you later

Im impressed at the developers at GOOGLE to be able to develop such a user friendly service – you name it anything published by GOOGLE is outstanding – I am a loyal fan of google – here is an EMAIL-BLOG test

Mobile Blogging into the Next Frontier

Technology leaps forward by leaps each and every day the open world with its unregulated policies permits companies to be creative and hence today I can blog from my cell – what the future holds next year, I dare not even predict

On the other hand the Government of Pakistan feels threatened by each and every new idea and regulations are created to block the progress. What good is a govt that is consumed with monitoring of its own people – it should be worried about other problems –

might one need to outline the problems – i doubt as we all are well aware of the present state of affairs in Pakistan

Until next time


Bush in his acceptance speech

excerpt from Slate.com

Back to the Future
What Bush would do if he were president.

For $2.4 trillion, guess what wordother than “a,” “and,” and “the” occurs most frequently in the acceptance speech George W. Bush delivered tonight.

The word is “will.” It appears 76 times. This was a speech all about what Bush will do, and what will happen, if he becomes president.

Except he already is president. He already ran this campaign. He promised great things. They haven’t happened. So, he’s trying to go back in time. He wants you to see in him the potential you saw four years ago. He can’t show you the things he promised, so he asks you to envision them. He asks you to be “optimistic.” He asks you to have faith.

“Since 2001, Americans have been given hills to climb and found the strength to climb them,” said Bush. “Now, because we have made the hard journey, we can see the valley below. Now, because we have faced challenges with resolve, we have historic goals within our reach and greatness in our future.”


Are the Saudians guilty of 9/11

Surprisingly

After the Michael Moore’s “Farenheit 9/11” was released it has haunted the Saudian Government to such an extent that they have launched a web campaign and adverts were displayed on Slate.com (picture attached)

Are the Saudians really guilty or is it just a clean up affair? One has to wonder – I am secretly glad that the Saudians were shipped out in time BUT then agaiin WHY? why them only i would then say BUSH is to blame and is guilty – he must have been in a haste to remove all evidence ASAP –

According to the Richard Clark in his book titled “Against All Enimes” he quotes Bush as saying that “find if Saddam is involved”. Bush only wanted revenge and that meant removing Saddam and invading Iraq like he has done so already

DOWN with BUSH

Vodafone & Orange controversy

Rumors have it – (Pakistani gossip scene)

The reason why Vodafone and Orange backed out of the Cell Phone licenses in Pakistan was due to the reason (rumor) PIA was going to sign a purchase agreement with AIRBUS but at the last moment with some US pressures backed out and committed to BOEING this infuriated the French Govt and told VODOFONE and ORANGE (both french multinationals) to back out of further commitments in Pakistan

Can anyone attest to this rumor
