Despite the fact that I view the practice of texting while driving to be every bit as stupid and dangerous as DWUI, she's trying real hard to distinguish herself as she runs for State AG in NY. A state not known for placing a high priority on individual liberties.

+ - Shortage of STEM workers in the US is a Myth->

Submitted by krygny
krygny (473134) writes "The National Review has an article with a number of references to research and dispelling the myth of a shortage of tech labor in the US:

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.

I know, the National Review is a conservative rag but the article contains many supporting references including The Atlantic and PBS."

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.

..., 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.

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.
