You are most correct, of course, which is the goal --- and then evermore articles from the National Association of Manufacturers, and whatever Big Tech is called now, as I believe they changed the ITAA name to something else, they will claim good IT people are too difficult to find, must offshore more jobs!

Hate that word, "incentivize" which translates to bribery and thievery to us non-Wall Street types. You said ...now it's time to make an effort to tap into another pool of resources to help fulfill/solve the stated problem...

Problem with that is this is the region which leads in offshoring jobs. Plenty of workers. . . remember, it was Micro$oft, on 9/12/01, which took advantage of the horrendous attack on America to have an unscheduled layoff of 1,000 local workers!

It's not madness, Opportunist, but part of the overall Matrix/Propaganda/Bullcrap formula or one of those One Thousand Points of BS to confuse and bewilder: after all, this is the state that leads in jobs offshoring, and importing of foreign visa scab workers --- go to Seattle sometime and learn why it is now referred to as Little India!

. . . then the same EXACT argument applies to wealth distribution, which means all wealth must be also equally redistributed --- except the minions of the super-rich are the ones pushing all these "divide and conquer" programs, forever successful in what they do --- the very same ones behind the offshoring of as many American tech jobs as possible!

nerd who codes for hours in their parent's basement which is how many computer programmers became computer programmers.

Although I wasn't fortunate enough to have a basement in which to code, having been raised in a Catholic orphanage, that is how I and every decent coder learns how to code: practice, practice, practice!

The problem I somewhat agree with you --- albeit on the economic or socioeconomic side --- is that invariably it is the disadvantaged whites who always suffer, who will be pushed out, while those connected, i.e., the wealthy and richer, still keep their advantages. This is just what I have observed over and over again, which is the norm in a capitalist educational system, which would be completely different were it really a meritocratic educational system.
