Shit, all these terror morons have to do is come up with a viable scheme and millions of air traveling passengers have to be subjected extra security for the sake of feeling safe.
Nonsense. There's no need for the scheme to be viable. The liquid limit you mentioned proves that.
Read my link again. The Obama Administration is talking about ICE enforcements only; the reality is that the majority of deportations are done by the Border Patrol - and the total (BP + ICE) have steadily dropped. It's a statistical head-fake by the Administration and you're falling for it hook, line, and sinker. The data in the lik I provided was hard, Government numbers from a lawsuit filed by field agents. It shows the opposite of the narrative Obama wants you to believe.
But I guess rather than hard numbers you can check as actual evidence entered in a Court case, you want to trust a blog post from Reuters... Oh well!
I'm also a strong supporter of sticking with something universal and that works well.
What's this useless "USB" Apple is mandating on all the iMacs?! Stick with ADB and the Printer/Modem ports. It's been Universal on Mac's since the beginning!
It wears out ridiculously fast.
For what value of "ridiculously"? I don't have a single 3.5 mm jack in the house with bad connection poltergeists.
But then, I'm still running an NAD 7140 from the 1980s as my stereo amplifier. Had to go in there last week with electrical contact cleaner to take the crackle out of the volume and balance pots, but I'm sure the audio jack still works perfectly. I'd have replaced some of the electrolytics, too, if my ears could hear any defects.
Obviously, though, I'm not a desirable Apple customer on several counts (ability to fix things myself, willingness to keep using unfashionable equipment that still works fine, ability to tell whether unfashionable equipment still works fine), so there is that.
His administration also deports a lot more Illegal mexican immigrants than the two previous administrations combined.
That's actually a lie that even President Obama admits is just a statistical stunt to try to shade the numbers. Actual deportations are at a long-term minimum.
I ended up deleting my LinkedIn. I'm happy at my current company and tired of getting spam.

Then it sounds like you're insisting on a geographical area to find a job and blaming the job market on the lack of jobs. People that want to be crab boat deckhands don't go to Arizona.
I tossed a few key words & technologies into Indeed and had 0 problems finding available positions around Farmington Hills, MI. (The only geographic area I decided to search).
All of those have direct need for C skills and in addition (based on where I've worked with those skills) need people that can do everything you listed. All of these companies have a shortage of engineers that can do what you listed and are looking for them (and willing to pay them). There were 21 jobs RTOS within 25 miles of Farmington Hills starting $110k
And that is one job skill set within one geographic area (That isn't Silicon valley). I can repeat those job searches across the country.
I'm over 50 and that's a major 'problem'
I work with 50+ engineers all the time. Some of them 'recently' hired. It has nothing to do with age.
that's not the issue and it never was.
Yes. It's people that insist on looking in a very small geographic area that has a flood of people wanting to live there. Driving the job market out from under people also wanting to live there. You think your grandfather got to turn down jobs from the CCC because "eh, I really don't want to get bussed into a different city during the depression. Can't you just let me work here?"
Seriously, I'm having a hard time not finding any jobs on Indeed. $100-$130k. Experience in GUI/applications development in C#, C++, and VB6. Experience working with TCP/IP and automotive protocols (CAN, J1850, etc.) Some knowledge of embedded systems. Any experience in CAN diagnostics is a plus.
This leads us to one of a few conclusions:
