Save the Troy Public Library.. continued

Per http://keeptroystrong.blogspot.com/2011/07/tcu-plan-to-save-library.html:

TCU Plan to Save the Library

The Dave Henderson/TCU plan to save the library is as follows:

  1. Vote NO on the library millage on Aug 2
  2. Let the library close on Aug 5
  3. Support TCU candidates running for mayor and city council, including Dave Henderson
  4. Elect them to office in November
  5. Wait for them to fund the library, by taxing tax-paying Troy residents who happen to be from other countries.
And how are they going to do it? They are going to fire everyone, and put an extra tax on tax-paying foreign nationals and an extra tax on people from other cities whose towns have lending agreements with our library.
What? The anti-tax extremists want to tax people TWICE? What people? Oh, those people.

Prof. Ramdas Lamb's Take on Conversion


"The problem of conversion will be solved if the Hindu parents live and practice Hinduism in their lives. Just preaching is not enough and it is not going to work. You have to walk the talk. Parents have to silently put Hinduism in action so that the children can observe and follow them. This is how I have taught my children and it has worked very well." These views were expressed by Dr. Ramdas Lamb, Associate Professor, Dept. of Religion, University of Hawaii while speaking on the subject- "Effects of Conversion on Native Cultures and Society" at a meeting organized by Vivekananda International Foundation on Thursday, 23rd June, 2011 in Delhi.
