How do you explain those companies investing large sums of money trying to train up American kids if they prefer the slave-labour H1Bs? Insurance perhaps?

Intel threw $300,000,000 at increasing diversity and equality.

I don't see anything about training and skills in "diversity and equality".

Anti-discrimination laws are allowed by the constitution. Those laws can prohibit certain speech. That's well established and tested in court.

Can you supply some of these laws and court cases? I'm not trolling nor is it a rhetorical question. Free speech has been on my mind lately, and I see a lot of people state (without evidence) that the US (or states, or something) has a few, narrow restrictive laws regarding racism and discrimination, in regard to what can be said/printed. But nobody is interested or able to provide examples. Thanks in advance.

Daily life in China is closer to that in the USA than to North Korea.

Most personal, daily life is even freer than in the USA. For example, nobody gives a shit where you smoke, and hardly any concern about how you drive, where you park, etc.

I was reading this thread, and this WSJ opinion piece at the same time, and my attention was snagged.

Politico reports the electors in question are “mostly former Bernie Sanders supporters who hail from Washington state and Colorado,” which means they are Clinton electors. If they prove faithless, it would widen Trump’s margin—not that it matters, for at least 37 Trump electors would have to defect to deny him a majority.

Now I'm actually interested in observing the electoral ballot casting!
