Kuwaitis demand more obedient slaves

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/jul/23/who-will-refund-me-kuwaiti-star-ignites-row-over-filipinos-days-off

A Kuwaiti social media star is facing a backlash after criticising new laws improving conditions for the country’s Filipino domestic workers.

Sondos Alqattan, an Instagram star and makeup artist with over 2.3 million followers, criticised new laws giving Filipino workers a day off per week and preventing employers from seizing their passports.

“How can you have a servant at home who keeps their own passport with them? What’s worse is they have one day off every week,” she said in a video posted online, which has gone viral and attracted criticism in the Middle East and the Philippines.

Alqattan slated reforms introduced in May to protect the rights of Filipino domestic workers: “If they run away and go back to their country, who will refund me?


When I was studying in Ann Arbor, there was a Kuwaiti woman downstairs from me who kept an Indian slave. There is no other way to describe it. The poor slave woman was not allowed to leave the apartment, ever, and was very badly treated. Very timid. The Kuwaiti was a domineering entitled bitch. So this article sounds quite familiar.

They are not at all perfect, but the religion and culture that lags progress from all others, that is the most dangerous, is Islam. It's a serious problem that must be solved, and our greatest barrier to solving those problems are the liberals who won't even recognize the problem.


But why would you care whether your neighbor is gay or whether a group of people thousands of miles away are following a primitive non-progressive religion? As long as your gay neighbors don't bother you and you don't bother them and as long as your "advanced" culture doesn't bother their "lagging behind" culture and vise versa, what's the problem?

Personally I think that the fundamental philosophy of major Abhramic religions (Christianity and Islam) which says that their religion is the only true way to god and hence the rest must be converted is old and archaic thinking. Thats why I said earlier, you guys get together with your Islamic brothers and work it out as to who is going to dominate and take over the world :-). From the perspective of Hinduism (and other Indic religions and perhaps many native religions - Inca, American Indians, etc), both Christianity and Islam need serious reform. I think if the "converting" religions of the world learned how to respect other cultures and religions half the problem that this world has would be gone.

white


Until recent past, there was no interaction with people outside of Indian for general public. They are seen mostly in news, all of them look alike. Given the negative feeling about brits. all "white" looks bad. But in reality there are many types of "whites", just like may types of diverse Indians, Chinese. From outside all Indians look same for who never dealt with them.
Its an unfortunate tragedy that mostly Brits looted everything back then. But it is quite possible to rebuild the country, hope they are doing it ok now after Islamic congress party is gone for now. The biggest danger to Indian now is Islamic virus, and they are breading like crazy, also moving from neighbors and they are approaching to a critical mass(20/80 rule apply) to wipe-out like they did it in neighboring countries. Political machine is on their side for voting that democracy does not help in this case at least in theory.

In today's world, we all made a great progress, religion should not have any lead roll in any aspect of life. Unfortunately lot of constitutions were made out of strong religious back grounds, ideally they need to be rewritten.
If some one is still hanging on religion means, lazy, ignorant, guilt free molestation, murder, easy money, power or all of them.
Oops, forgot to mention, God is out there to write off everything.

Regarding your comment "uppity indians of higer caste". Dont be a dick. It is not higher caste, its higher class


This is the fundamental cultural divide between Americans and Indians. The Indian immigrants I’ve known have been universally obsessed with status and class, and their pursuit of such is annoying as fuck to native born Americans. They’re unabashedly interested in self promotion, self aggrandizement, and selfish agendas. They have to make sure everyone knows of their accomplishments and anyone who is famous they have some connection to or just pestered into doing a selfie with at a concert or speaking engagement.

To Americans this is LOW CLASS behavior.

To Indians, this is them trying to assert that they are high class. And in this, they fail.


That is true. There are the universally acceptable values, but things are changing there (very) slowly. Cast is not used as much like before but play a roll in India still. Quality education will change the society and break the barriers which is still missing in India. They need to privatize edu with right regulation to meet the quality. Educated mass can make a better society other wise you can expect the same old crap.

Buddhism treats them better.


Quite a lot of low-caste Indians did became Buddhist:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Buddhism_in_India#Dalit_Buddhist_movement


Around a 1000 years back, by the time Hinduism started re-assimialting back Buddhism (Hinduism's own reform movement) back into its fold, islamic invasions started. Hinduism didn't have time to re-assimilate Buddhism and Islam was this new aggressive kid on the block which ate up all the Buddhists. This is what changed history. All the regions of South/Central Asia that are Islamic today where mainly Buddhists in pre-islamic times. Iran was Zorastrian. Compared to this Dalit Buddhist movement won't even appear a...

>Offcourse I am talking only strictly "philosphical" view of conversions in Hinduism. Culturally and practically, Hinduism considers "conversion" as an attack.
The real problem is, in the game of democracy, the politicians put one against the other to maximize his/her outcome at expense of the others pain, it creates a mini war zone. India experiencing massive sound pollution that few times a day, every day, they pray through loud spears what a tragedy for every few hours. The converter get free sex all over, including with minors.
In some places as part of conversion, one is obligated to offer first of what ever you have. Like animal born, if you are farmer, first egg from chicken etc, to the church father, in some cases to my disbelief, I heard first time sex with a virgin (I suspect mostly minor) girl to make marriage ready. The mother of all frauds, the religion is real estate play, the "God" appears magically at prime or near prime locations. Generally it happens if the lot is (near) empty or gov. owned. No one will dare to ask a question, its easy occupation, no taxes and gov. provides endowment funds.
Religion is full of crap, not sure when will this world realize that there is no f. God. Its all about extracting $$$$ from others.

Islam, socialism, and politicians are the most attacked and slaughtered here. It's a lot of fun.

Tolerance means that you can believe what you want, but you don't act with prejudice towards people who live differently than you. It's perfectly fine the way it is.

If you've married your wife, you more than tolerate her. Strangers acting in ways you think is stupid/harmful is something else.

I'll never respect a Wahabi, but I'll tolerate their presence if they behave themselves. Any government that demands I "respect" them loses my respect- and compliance.

I respectfully disagree. This seems like a personal attack. I'd just focus on issue not the person. I know its a tricky.
"respect" - it has to be earned. Some cultures are more productive than others. If respect is not earned, look for ways to improve one bit at a time.
In my case, I was told to "respect" all elders just like all Asian cultures. Over the period I learned in a hard way, at least some elders don't deserve ANY respect at all after few interactions. If I visit India, I have to pretend (for cultural reason) that I "respect" elders. So blanket statements like "mutual respect" should comes with ''if' 'but' etc. in reality, since there is no such thing exists. It exists ONLY in a case both are equally good or bad or else pretend.

scarce




indc says
Let me give you an example so that you will understand those so called "upper caste hindus" you are talking about.

Lets say there are 40 people in line and the vendor says there are only 30 items he can sell. This keep happening everyday for 20 days and the rich guy is 35th person everyday, What will the "rich white asshole" do on 21st day?

It is not the culture that turns people into line cutting assholes. Its the scarcity of things that causes people to behave like that. After white men left them destitute it will take some generations to get back their humanity and surpluses. The second generation does not behave like this because they dont know what is living with limited resources does to their psyche.


I appreciate the analysis, but I'm not convinced. IMO, It has nothing to do with scarcity. Their cart is full and they are already in posse...


In my observation, scarcity is affects all but its the insecurity builtin with the "some people" and the "environment that support them". Over the period of time this stuff is built-in in their DNA and loose the common sense. Now they visit countries like US, still the mind is still in the same state because they lost the common sense that they can afford back then and its harder than anyone can think of to regain.
Few months ago, I was stopped by a (Chinese looking) woman, in costco checkout. She couldn't understand English and refuse to step aside from the spot in line reserved for some one still shopping. This is quite familiar to me, finally the daughter(or -in-law) came back the explaining her (just a guess based on the body language) to step aside as their guy still not finished shopping. Some of them are nice, but as I mentioned the "environment" is the reason to have failed logic, not the "scarcity". I have seen poor and very honest people in India that they are quite happy with what they have by living within their means.

I too dont like to use the term "white" it is too generic, but India was looted not just by british, It was also looted by dutch, french and portugese. What term do you suggest I use?


@indc I thought about it a little, and the correct thing is to look at the flag of the group that did it. That is what they use to explicitly identify themselves. OK, you've got several flags to blame, frequently Muslim groups that invaded India too.

India was not occupied in the name of "white people". It was occupied in the name of the British Empire, with soldiers flying that particular flag.

And to this day, hoisting that flag in an Irish neighborhood can start a deadly fight in Belfast.

Are you sure you are not confusing between Muslims and Middle East or between Arabs and Muslims? Only a small number of Muslims live in Middle East and only a small number of Muslims are Arab. Most muslims in this world live in South and South-east Asia. As an example, consider that Indonesia has around 200 million muslims. Malasia with much smaller population has majority 60% muslim population with more religious diversity than US. Both these countries are doing fairly well. Then there are around 200 million muslims more in India - again fairly moderate population with Muslim film actors and billionaires (who got rich by starting their own companies from ground up, but not Oil) among them.

As far as middle east is concerned, the entire middle east is an Abharamic religious hell hole with all sorts of competing Jewish, Islamic, and Christian interests tied together in a knot with Oil, conflicting international security guarantees, religious fanaticism, propaganda, and funding for fanatic sects (such as Wahabi Islam). Why only blame the Muslims here, they are just one piece of the puzzle along with Christian and Jews as far as middle east mess is concerned.

I do agree with you though that WMD and terrorism are a problem. But these need to be controlled in any case irrespective of whose hands they might be in. You may trust Donald Trump with control of Nukes, I don't. I would also agree that Islamic faith should be doing a better job of making friends. But besides that a Muslim in Malaysia has very little to do with an Arab in Saudi Arabia.

You are right. There are Muslims, and there are Muslims. The most dangerous are Arab Muslims, along with Afghanistan and Pakistan. I'm still skeptical of other Muslims in Asia, because this suicide bomber disease can be easily spread.

"Moderate" because still large number of non-Muslims left around and supporting their parasite Muslim welfare bills.

Bollywood is a organized crime syndicate, run by Islamic thugs behind.
That Islamic gay man made money through money laundering for his masters, that is his real talent not "acting".

Sure they do make friends if they need to fight with non middle east country, otherwise, they get back to fight with neighbors, that is normal there historically.

I lived in both Malaysia and gulf, in my observation, Singapore is the checkmate for Malaysia (they hate them openly and there are many laws targeting explicitly Islamic man. West should learn and implement the same for their survival), also they still have the old pre-Islamic traditional values integrated in the society that make them less violent for now.

I have a feeling, there is sex involved often as part of domestic work. These poor women are exploited all over. The middle east culture is really a f. s..t. When the worker arrive the "master" f.r take passport for many types of workers. I was on a business trip and ended up stopping by, because of my co-worker need to see someone in dumps. One of the guy showed us dozens of passports except photo part, that can be placed with a little difficulty. They sad, in fact some times authorities encourage to have yours in case if they need to deport, they have to spend some money and time. If you have yours with you and plane ticket, you can fly. Depends on the situation/gender/time/place/employer/time of the day/year one can fly out with out an issue. Btw, all passports were free for friends whoever needs one. That looks scary back then.

I didn't vote last elections (the choices just weren't good enough to bother voting), but all the hyperbole that Trump spewed about Infrastructure spending, I was hoping that at the very least he would fix traffic on Highway 101, but the Idot is more busy rabble rousing on twitter than doing anything worthwhile.

Whatever happened to the good old days when there were lots of slaves available at affordable prices with low interest rates,

If you have to finance them you shouldn't have slaves.

Violence in the name of religion is bad, but again there is nothing to point out that Muslims are any more violent than Christians or Jews and I can throw as many numbers as you can :-).


How many Christian or Jew suicide bombers can you point out?

WTF. If we had price controls on slaves, we wouldn't have to finance them. I can't even afford to rent one.

If Trump tried (for some inexplicable reason) to fix a state highway (which isn’t the Federal government’s responsibility), the Democrats who control the state would raise hell and block his efforts with legal challenges.

Keep that in mind when you consider what he has and hasn’t been able to accomplish. He’s fighting upriver to get anything done.

I think the real question is why would you need a human guided bomb when you have a precision guided missile that can go well beyond what any human guided bomb can do :-)

Next question to Alpo:
How many people have Christians and Jews killed for apostasy this century?

Another question for Alpo:
How many religions are Christians and Jews in active conflict with?

Whichever way you cherry pick the numbers, the facts are that Christian and Jews aren't any less voilent than Muslims. They have their terrorists and suicide bombers and you have your Tomohawk Cruise and stealth fighters. You think its ok to fire of hundreds of missiles and carpet bomb an area to create "peace and freedom" and they think its ok to send terrorists, suicide bombers, and fund radical sects across the world to "create the next caliphate". But if you are somehow claiming that Christian and Jewish world is more "advanced and peaceful" than the Muslim world, I find that very difficult to believe given the large scale use of violence on both sides that continues to bring down the general environment across the planet.

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should.

Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
