Comment That's IT. I've had it with the politics on /. (Score 0, Troll) 623 623

I've had it with the political articles. There are plenty of websites for those. Slashdot USED to be "News for nerds, stuff that matters". I'm not saying this story doesn't matter. But it has no place in ANY tech forum. I will surely visit from time to time but will no longer follow on my FB page. Adios.

Ditto the touchscreen voting machines and every other apparatus they come up with in their attempts to do away with the paper ballot, which has worked just fine for over 200 years. Just because it's more modern doesn't make it better.

I'm' trying to break into an IT career at age 42. Lots of personal but no employment experience in IT. "Go to college" they said. "It will help you break it." I graduate next year. So, will I be one of those "blank slates" like the ones young enough to be my kid or am I screwed before even applying?

I'm amazed by how society is tolerating this overt age discrimination. If all of us over 40 were black, this would have been solved years ago.

This is happening under the Obama admin. His people don't give 2 shits about H1B abuses (hi So. Cal. ConEd!) Sanders' actual party affiliation is Socialist. Obama is a Socialist who calls himself a Democrat so I hope you've learned your lesson here.

But (I predict) probably not.

Submission + - DHS refuses to investigate So. Cal. Edison for abusing H1-B visa program->

scottbomb writes: “At this point it would be premature for USCIS to speculate as to whether Southern California Edison’s participation in the H-1B program has violated laws,” Mr. Rodriguez wrote. “If facts come to our attention that indicate violations have occurred, USCIS will take appropriate action to maintain the integrity of our programs.”

Mr. Durbin and Mr. Sessions were not pleased with the brush-off.

“We did not ask for speculation; we asked for an investigation,” they said in a joint statement.
