The idea that we need to allow in more workers with science, technology, engineering, and math (“STEM”) background is an article of faith among American business and political elite. But in a new report, my Center for Immigration Studies colleague Karen Zeigler and I analyze the latest government data and find what other researchers have found: The country has well more than twice as many workers with STEM degrees as there are STEM jobs. Also consistent with other research, we find only modest levels of wage growth for such workers for more than a decade. Both employment and wage data indicate that such workers are not in short supply.
The NSA (and the rest of the government) is mostly staffed by incompetent idiots. Mostly. Don't give them more credit than they deserve.
Then again, sufficient incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.
Golf's not really much more expensive than other common recreational activities. More than some, less than most. Skiing, boating, hunting, fishing, tennis, RV-ing, etc. Golf doesn't require a large up-front investment nor travel. And as for the time spent playing it, I think you're not quite getting the whole recreation thing.
Even before the start on the American Revolution, the Colonies had a standing professional Army.
They were called Redcoats.
..., that makes carbon dioxide 317,000 times more problematic than PFTBA.
AH HAH!! So, you admit PFTBA is a problem. Well, since when does a politician NOT solve a problem? When the solution is worse than the original problem? No, of course not. They're in the business of selling solutions.
The guy sure had prunes.
As opposed to those who post anonymously; i.e. raisins.
The guy sure had prunes.
Why is someone who uses legal tax exemptions the one to blame? How about the congresspukes who add 4,000 pages of exemptions, credits and penalties to the tax code every year?
Taxes are not merely intended to take in revenue. You don't need 80,000 pages to do that. The principal purpose of the tax code is to control, or at least influence "behavior". And we all know what the IRS is for.
Politicians like this are the reason we have guns.
Seriously. It would seem to indicate that they have a very serious problem with their science.
Wait a second. You mean it's STILL not settled?!!
EVERYTHING is a privilege to be enjoyed in proportion to wealth. You're kidding yourself if you think it can ever be any other way.
If I give enough of my money the Government or the UN, as they ask, they're going to do something about this? They're going to control the weather?
I may not be a climatologist and I can't argue the science either way, but I do know BULLSHIT when I hear it.
Tyranny is a small price for safety. But we still have a long way to go to eradicate all the things that bad people can use to hurt and kill good people. I mean, they haven't even collected all the guns and pressure cookers. It's will be a long time before they get around to all the sharp and jagged rocks.
The whole idea is not to get you to buy one. It's to get the Government to mandate that you buy one. Or no gun at all.
