>locality here only has registrations up to electrical engineering

Take a look at the subjects. It's all power distribution and 3 phase stuff. The electronics I do is all around 0.8V these days.

To get a professional license to do engineering in microelectronics would require that you study heavy duty power electronics.

Some people's religious beliefs include "I should kill anyone who disagrees with me." Some people act on their beliefs.

So it's the killing you object to then, and not the beliefs. Have I got that right? Good, because I agree with you completely. Religious doctrine, the xtian bible for example, is full of dangerous ideas that no sane person would believe enough to actually act on. That doesn't mean the whole religion is bad or it's followers inherently evil. Right?

Heading into Godwin territory, It's he moral equivalent of being a nice Nazi. You appreciate a strong leader and he makes the trains run on time. These things are true, but you are promoting an organization that does great evil by being part of it. Exactly the same thing with most religions.

Christianity may have at one point in time done great evil, but I can say that I do not believe they do great evil anymore.

At best specific churches do small acts of evil from time to time, just like any human or group of humans.

Then you are both blind to the sectarian violence around the world and you have missed the point entirely.

Yet the people who complain are often clueless of the process. What are people's opinions on L1B for instance? Does that look better to worse to them? Or were they unaware? What about green cards? Are people aware that H1Bs, L1Bs and all the others were put in place because the green card process became too slow and bureaucratic? Why not fix the green card system so we can do away with the secondary worker visas?

My impression is that if the rules were followed concerning who meets the skills criteria and lotteries were done away with, then the perceived problems of visa abuse by companies would not exist. If they dropped all those visas and fixed the green card process then the perceived problems of worker-on-visa abuse would not exist.

The law gave the government 90 days to provide me with a green card. They took five years.

The tech industry in the US is the main tech industry in the world precisely because there is inertia and techies from around the world can move to where the industry is thus maintaining the Us as the center of tech. The effect of stopping them coming is not to improve wages here through worker shortage. It will be to cause the center of gravity of the tech industry to move to wherever techies around the world are able to move to.

No, because a good sysadmin would like to eat something besides mac&cheese, and the company prefers to pay wages that would require you live with your parents rent free, and on your "special night" you can afford to spring for mac&cheese...for yourself.

So leaving and messing with the database gets you better food that mac & cheese. I'm not seeing your logic.
