WaPo completely unbiased on immigration

From the Washington Post tonight:

Visas for high-skilled foreign workers could double under Senate plan

Visas for high-skilled foreign workers could double under Senate plan
Bipartisan plan would be major win for tech industry which argues visa limits impede qualified employees.

All we need is story about the anti-immigrant "wreckers" and "Kulaks" and it will be complete.

Student visas should be limited to the arts and humanities. Technical know-how is a comparative advantage/national security issue as we've seen so many times with American trained Chinese spies.

If more technical slots were available for American kids, American companies wouldn't need foreigners to meet demand.

Is it that difficult to use simple logic?

Someday, all those at the top spewing their lies will pay.

and there is apparently nothing we can do about it. Is there? You can sense the smugness of it all.

What is amazing is how Congress is telling all of the white middle class kids trying to get a degree in STEM to drop dead.

I guess to the elite, one is either an Ivy League graduate living in NYC, or one is a loser.

Those h1n1 visas scare the shit outta me. Why learn any technical skills anymore when an indentured servent from the third world will get your job? I gotta get into sales, or at least management (pimping).

I'm guessing that someone told the RNC that white people, unlike blacks, will not show up and vote for traitors, so I'm also guessing that the RNC doesn't care.

The ironic thing is that Americans stopped studying computer science because there were so many foriegners filling the jobs. There would not be a shortage in this country if they actually hired Americans.

the lords of lies are lying as per usual. high skilled immigrants are not more talented than the native born.

i'll give the leftoids and eualists and cheap labor whores this much: in true seduction of the electorate style, they know how to frame a debate. their arguments have no grounding in truth or reasonableness, and yet they have managed so far to keep normal people with common sense on their heels, defensive and defenseless against slander. the cure is for someone, anyone, on the ostensible right, to grow a pair and learn a few fundamental game concepts, like reframing.

One question I'd like answered: in the 80s and 90s Microsoft minted quite literally thousands of millionaires (there were at least 2000 at one point), thanks to stock options granted to employees.

How many employ millionaires has Google produced? How many has Facebook produced? My guess is that while they've both probably made quite a few, neither has produced nearly as many as Microsoft did, mostly thanks to the H-1B visa, which reduces their need to compete for talent.
