Comment ITT: Tons of anti-US, internationalist apologists (Score 1) 240

There's a whole lot of people that want to take the US down a peg, sanitizing it in the name of some sports term called "global competitiveness". They just want to see the US have to be the nation of people desperate for any port in a storm, even if it's the worst in jobs. In the McCarthy era, they would have been rightfully removed and replaced with citizens that properly value citizens as assets - not problems.

The US citizen's worth and way of life shall not be challenged by such low-freedom internationals. Besides, the worst citizen can be trained to be above the level of the average "body shop" guest worker.

Wasn't that program actually started under the Bush administration?

Well, yes but that's misleading.

So that Obama and Holder ended up taking all manner of shit from the Rabid Right--including a massive anti-Holder PR campaign by the NRA--for continuing to do what their guy had started?

This is the misleading part. The operation that became Fast and Furious began under the Bush administration as Wide Receiver but the program was vastly different under the Obama administration.

There was nearly seven times more guns allowed to walk during the Obama administration than under Bush. The Bush administration ended Wide Receiver in 2007 when they had issues with inadequate tracking. None of the Bush era guns have been used in homicides in the US. The Bush era program notified Mexican law enforcement of guns that they expected would cross the border, that didn't happen under Obama.

Whether you choose to chalk it up to incompetence or malice, there were many differences between Wide Receiver and Fast and Furious that show the Obama administration's operation was a wholly different beast.

Kill off the guest worker programs and then see what happens with a clean, distortion-free, pro-citizen market. See to it that there is no way not to hire a citizen in a direct hire, FTE capacity.

College will be for everyone until alternatives have a practical yield and are considered skilled work - something that votech cannot and will not do for the foreseeable future.
