This is why I'm against electronic gambling.

It's not any safer to utilize non-electronic. In spite of all the cameras at the casinos in Vegas, I've personally witnessed a couple of people get away with cheating. It can be trivial to do things right in front of a camera that won't be noticed.

f you seriously think the current American workforce can fill the positions that many of the H1-B Visas are taking, you have not been involved in any significant tech hiring in the last few years. My company is only moderately competitive and we have been almost totally unable to find competent engineers to hire in the last year...

You're delusional. I frequently am involved in hiring for one of the largest engineering firms in the country, and we we usually end up with multiple candidates for positions. If you need H1-Bs, you're just trying to get cheap labor, or flat out not posting jobs. Your comment is utter bullshit.

Nobody said anything about them being buddies except you. But, you can't beat corporations into the ground, and expect that it's good for the country. Figuring out what the best tax rate is to get corporations to provide the most jobs and products, and have the best GNP possible is an example of what was meant. Government can work with business, but must always have the final say.

Nothing happens.
