Obama's High-Tech Labor Lies 
David Sirota really hates our president


After the New York Times’ article on Apple’s Chinese production facilities reignited a national discussion
about offshore outsourcing, President Obama was confronted during a Google+ “hang out” about why
during a brutal unemployment crisis his administration continues to support expanding the H-1B visa program
that allows tech companies to annually import thousands of low-wage engineers from abroad. In his stunning
answer, the president first expresses bewilderment that any American high-tech engineer could be out of work,
because he says that “what industry tells me is that they don’t have enough (domestic) highly skilled engineers”
and that “the word that we’re getting is that somebody (a domestic engineer) in a high-tech field should be able
to find something right away.” He then goes on to insist that the H-1B program is “reserved only for those
companies who say they cannot find somebody in (a) particular field” and that it shouldn’t apply to industries
where “there are a lot of highly skilled American workers” looking for a job because he says his administration
is focused on “encourag(ing) more American engineers to be placed” in open positions.
Obama showed himself to be either wholly ignorant of the reality facing high-tech workers today, or simply willing
to echo the self-serving lies of his high-tech CEO friends. Whichever it is, the president’s claims are clearly at odds
with the basic facts of the high-tech labor market.

Sirota is so quick to assign sinister motives to the man he worked so hard to elect.
The way I read it, Obama was quoting what industry leaders have told him.

Does that make Obama a liar?

Old McCain Slams Willard
Says he needs to act "more humane"


Sen. John McCain (R-Senile.) criticized Willard Romney's "self-deportation" immigration policy,
stating he should adopt a "very humane approach" to immigration in order to secure Latino voters.
McCain, who does not support the Dream Act, said that Republicans should address the problems
posed by border insecurity, but also must consider the human side to the issue of the country's
12 million undocumented immigrants, as well as the impact that aggressive reform policies may
have on the party's ability to win over voters.
"It has to be a very humane approach to this issue, and we have to come up with solutions to it,"
said McCain. "But we also have to do something about the drugs that are coming across our
southern border that are killing our kids."
McCain expressed a similar sentiment in December, warning that states with large Hispanic
populations like Arizona and New Mexico could be "up for grabs."
When asked by Univision's Jorge Ramos if "self-deportation" is humane, McCain replied,
"No. I think there are some people who want to leave this country and return to the country
they came from, but obviously it requires a broader solution that that, and we all know that."

Does McCain have Willard Romney's flip-flop disease?  Last I heard, Old Man McCain
blaming Latinos for global warming, Arizona wild fires and rainy Mondays.

Subject: "Costly, unproven technologies"


According to last Thursday's article in The Hill, Republicans are now trying to avoid clean energy
by preventing the EPA from recommending "commercially unproven technologies."  House Energy
Committee Chair Fred Upton (R-MI) is quoted as saying that "increasing electricity costs...will send
thousands more U.S. jobs overseas."

I wonder if he realizes that commercially-available solar power is
cheaper than electricity that would come from the tar sands?

I don't think we can blame the GOP for this one.
After all, you know how costly and deadly those massive sunshine spills can be.

Planned Parenthood's Abortionplex
Can the GOP really be this stupid?


Republican moron John Fleming of Louisiana has made himself the target of online ridicule
after confusing a spoof article about Planned Parenthood as a factual news report.
The Onion's headlin said, "Planned Parenthood Opens $8 Billion Abortionplex."

The Onion is a satirical news organization, which makes up fake stories to fool the extra-stupid.

The fake article opens with: "Planned Parenthood announced Tuesday the grand opening
of its
long-planned $8 billion Abortionplex, a sprawling abortion facility that will allow
to terminate unborn lives with an efficiency never before thought possible."

However, the Onion's mission statement apparently was not explained to Rep. Fleming, who took
to Facebook to whine: "More on Planned Parenthood. Abortion by the wholesale."

The post has since been removed from Fleming's Facebook page, but it was captured.

Subject: What gives Catholics the right to deny birth control to the rest of us?

I sit here in amazement that the Catholic Church thinks it has the right to deny birth control to the rest of us.
Who do these people think they are?

Women have a fundamental intrinsic right to have access to birth control regardless of the religious bent
of the provider who is publicly subsidized. Medical care is about the patient - not the health care provider.

The very idea that Catholic views even matter for non-Catholic patients is something I consider religiously offensive.

I think Catholics should focus on stopping priests from raping children and quit trying to force women
who have been raped to carry the baby of the rapist. Religious freedom is about the rights of the patient,
not the rights of the doctor.

Cali Gay marriage BAN Struck Down
Now the Supreme Neocons can Kill it 5-4


The 9th Circuit Court in California struck down the state's voter-passed ban on gay marriage,
ruling 2-1 that it violates the rights of gay Californians.

"Proposition 8 serves no purpose, and has no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity
of gays and lesbians in California, and to officially reclassify their relationships and families as inferior to
those of opposite-sex couples," Judge Reinhardt wrote in the decision.

The Court concludes that the law violates the 14th Amendment rights of gay couples to equal protection
under the law. Gay marriage will still not be allowed in the state, leaving time for Prop 8 defenders to
challenge the decision.

Well, that makes sense.
When in doubt, always go with whatever will do the most harm to the most people.

Who gets hurt of gays can marry?  
Who gets hurt if they CAN'T marry?  
Just the gays, and they're used to getting screwed.

How is your health these days? 
And as far as that goes, how is Mrs. Bart doing? 

Haven't heard you say much about it lately,
but I sure hope you folks are doing OK. 

All of us faithful readers appreciate your site and your viewpoint.

Keep swingin!!

All things considered, my health is suprisingly good.
My decline is slow and steady - but isn't everyone's?  :)

Next week is eight years since they said, "and there is no cure,"
so if you look at it that way, I'm actually the king of the damn world.

Mrs. Bart is good.

Obama's finance "flip-flop"
They should be knocking this out of the park


When the Supreme Court ruled in 2010 that private organizations, including corporations and unions,
could spend unlimited amounts of money on political speech, President Obama decried the decision,
warning that it amounted to a "threat to our democracy."

That's true and he said it because it's true.
Or maybe we want Shedlon Adelson picking our president each time?

Two years later, the Obama campaign has announced that with the president's blessing, it will support
a pro-Obama super PAC--a creation of that very ruling--to received unlimited donations from individuals,
corporations and unions for the 2012 presidential campaign.

"We made a decision, announced last night, that we're not going to allow for two sets of rules
this election,"
a senior campaign official said. "A half billion dollars spent against the president's
re-election by GOP super PACs
is not something that we take lightly, and it ultimately led to
our decision that we're not going to unilaterally
disarm in this fight. Our message remains the
same in terms of the type of things we're fighting for."

"The president did sign off on this decision," the official, who asked to remain anonymous, said.

Somehow, the GOP has gotten every news channel I've heard frame this as, "Obama's flip-flop."
but who thinks we can fight effectively if they're the only ones who can raise money wholesale?

The problem is, that paragraph in bold reads like John Kerry wrote it.
Obama's people tend to talk like they're on Harvard's debate team.

This White House hasn't yet figured out that more stupid people vote.
There aren't enough smart people to get to 55 million votes.

The White House needs someone who speaks "normal" on their team.

I'd do it till election day for just $100K and a nice
DC hotel room with fine tequila room service.
