I have seen an argument from a Goremerian Sex Slave that her consent to slavery was tied specifically to her interpretation of Christianity (in that her service to her husband and master, was service to Christ himself), so it's white Christian females as well.

Thank you for both correcting my point with more accurate data while making my point.

I meant really the Christian Israel under the Byzantine Church, but the point is well made- Christendom was slow to anger by 4 centuries of insult, and it was the Islamics who attacked first.

The folks in silicon valley are smart, organized and wealthy. They've purchased the requisite members of congress who have shown quite plainly that their interests diverge significantly from those of the White House and its current, er... "administration."

There will be no change at all, or at best, cosmetic changes.

Of course, the best course of action would be to give any foreign national who moves here for more than five years a green card, a handshake and expedited citizenship if they start a business that employs Americans in a technical capacity at standard wages for their position of expertise for more than five years.

That's a 10 year commitment. Their kids will have grown up here. Nobody is moving back to China or India at that point. We get a new generation of smart, entrepreneurial Americans.

Being a rational course of action that takes advantage of foreign expertise and money for the USA's benefit, it will never happen.
