    Tremendous respect for Brian Ross, who looks like a "good guy," a man of
    character who can be depended upon. I'd like to see Brian investigate the
    Hindu-Muslim phenomenon.

    About 35 yrs ago, the motel-convenience store cum gasoline business in America were slowly taken over by Indians& Paks.

    It may have happened when LBJ opened America's doors wide, said "come and get it!" free.

    The takeover was stealthy. In the farest reaches of our country, small, one-horse motels were taken over by Hindus-Parsis-Sikhs, and their relatives (or just people who looked like the new owners) took over management.

    Brian, where did the money come from? India-Sikh-Muslim-Parsi country was the most pitifully poor country in the world (aside from Africa, and those denizens who could never do anything for themselves, and are still on the American-Brit-German-French-italian dole).

    The take over of American hotels and motels by Indians, and the takeover of
    American convenience store-gas stations by Muslims took tons of thought, and machinations. Did our presidents and Congress-senate provide the dollars required?

    No one has ever reported on this amazing feat. Brian, why not you?
