Quoting AlphaF:

Should I be ashamed if US can not raise a lady president?


PS: We in Turkia already had one. We shall never repeat the mistake !


Alpha are you sure you do not mean Tansu Ciller the first woman prime minister of Turkey?

What's your point, so there hasn't been a woman president either. Just for your information..

1987 President Ronald Reagan appoints Dr. Joy Cherian, the 1st Indian Commissioner of the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commmision (EEOC).

2007 Bobby Jindal is elected governor of Louisiana and is the 1st person of Indian descent to be elected governor of an American state. He is presently and historically the highest ranking Indian American in the United States Government.

Shall I go on...



You should be ashamed to admit that first elected native governor had to wait until 2007.


not to mention that Native Indians had to wait till 1924 to get the right to vote...54 years later after Afro Americans were formally enfranchised with the 15th amendment (187and 4 years after women.what a justice!!!



and you would be amazed to see how beautiful inscriptions were on the 16-17 century thumb stones thrown out from the cemetery.

If I am not mistaken, you are about to witness where an original AlphaF thread can actually lead you to....

AlphaF does not appreciate such cold and indifferent remarks.

He likes warm and compassionate words...always!

Sorry for unclear posting
'what a justice' and Indians faith remembered me, through several leaps about an another injustice. an example: in my town, there is a ravishing cemetery (as strange as it may sound... but the flowers, trees, it's size, the fact that is on a hill, the stones and crypts make it so very beautiful and unique). it is dating from the 16th century. basicallly started as hungarian, german and jewish one. each year, old tombstones are thrown out, making room for the 'newcomers' made of cement. it is there, along our everyday lives, yet fading everyday. there is still not much of an interest in keeping its beauty and value. since muteferrika has flown away, in this cemetury lies misztotfalusi, opener of the first printer here, poets, writers, scientist, noblemen along with colourful gypsies. keyword? assimilation. and i can tell you many more similarities. as one saying goes: late me have a look at your cemeteries and i tell you who you are... what did the hungarians do? fought over a piece of cheese. then several, flavoured after politically orientations. this is a very truncated and brief story of what is just an another form of extinguishing.

now, how this connect to the topic of integrity? just through me. then:

1. most of the times i seriously question my integrity.

2. the original topic was missing a few lines from the article. Ecce:
A long time ago, there was an old man with his children living in a mountain village. They lived a very happy life, with only one big problem. They had to climb over a big mountain to go to the field everyday. So one day the old man decided to move the mountain. With his children, they began chipping away pieces of rock every day at the foot of the mountain. A wise man passed by and said, 'How can you possibly think you can move the mountain?' The old man said, 'Probably I won't. But you see, I have children. My children will have children. And they will continue and the mountain will be moved.
