Racism used to be a word that meant a unreasonable bias against some one of a different racial group. Today it means ABSOLUTLY NOTHING.

Tech Story: "Patriotic" Disney uses H1B Visas to replace 250 IT pros who were required to train their replacements submitted by rspix000 to politics

jamesed 0 points 48 points (+48|-0) ago

DIsney contracted with two H1B visa companies to bring in foreign employees. Disney had to file a written statement that the H1B visa holders would not displace any workers or are citizens of the United States. It is clear that Disney filed a false statement with the Department of labor. To help rectify the H1B visa fiasco Senator Jeff Sessions and Senator Ted Cruze have authored legislation to make the minimum wage for a H1B visa holder to be $100,000 a year. The H1b Visa was supposed to be use to bring people whit very special skills into the country. It was thought at the time of the origination H1B enactment that there would be very few H1B visas and that they would be used for PHd's and researchers. There was certainly no intention to bring in 85,000 a year. The Democratic Senator Ben Nelson has proposed and written legislation to reduce the number of H1B visas from the current 85,000 to just 70,000. Also the current spending law raised the fee for a H1B visa to $4000 each. There is a movement in Congress to raise the fee to $15,000 each. What many in congress are attempting to do is to raise the cost of a H1B visa so high that it makes more economic sense to hire american citizens for the positions.

Of course we are getting a lot of push back from the Government of India (90% of the H1B visa holders are from India) as they say that we hindering their economic development by not allowing their citizens to get experience by working for western high Tech firms. Yet India is one of the countries that makes it almost impossible for a foreigner to work there. Another curious side light is when we complain about India's hiring practices and Immigration policies they complain that we are interfering with their domestic policies, yet they seem to have no problem meddling in or domestic policies.

This has nothing to do with being WHITE, BROWN, BLACK, RED, YELLOW, OR BLUE , ( I understand the ancient Celts used to die them selves blue for some reason). This has every thing to do with FREEDOM AND LIBERTY. As government authority grows Freedom and liberty shrinks. The more layers of government over you the less freedom and liberty you have. Removing one whole layer of government adds one layer of freedom and liberty to the individual.

Jimmy Carter is a well known anti Semite. Even during his naval service he removed every Jewish officer aboard every ship he commanded. He some how always found that they were unfit for duty or command.

RUSSIANS: 'America is a bomb waiting to explode' ...Limited food, decline in morals, mind-altering drugs submitted by 1Sorry_SOB to politics

How about all of the above. It a known fact that Marijuana makes you Paranoid (and that's not two smart guys from New Jersey). Paranoid people lash out unreasonably at what ever they fear. Regardless what the pot heads tell you, modern studies have suggested that Marijuana is far from the harmless weed that they tell you. Here is what the National Academy of Science funded studies have found:'

Approximately ten percent of all marijuana smokers get addicted to the stuff.

School age heavy users (once a day) are more than twice as likely to drop out of school, as well as experience cognitive impairment and psychoses as adults.

Regular cannabis users also double their risk of experiencing psychotic symptoms and disorders such as disordered thinking, hallucinations and delusions

The brain’s nucleus accumbens is involved in perceiving pleasure and reward as well as fear and addiction becomes larger and more dense in every day users of Marijuana. Fear and addiction is the operative phrase here.

Since there is a very limited group of studies on the use of Marijuana, and almost all the new information has come out in the last two or three years it is important that we keep an open mind. Most of the information that is out there has been pushed by either the pro pot crowd, or the anti pot cabal base on biased studies conducted decades ago.
