It's not just farm workers who we're losing to Trump's immigration.

President is cracking down on foreign high-tech workers too:
-92K computer science degrees awarded in 2016
-there are 500K open jobs in that field

Immigration is essential for America's economy to function.

You would need a basic understanding of America's economy to understand that.

Nice!

There is a high demand and a lot of unfilled jobs but from my experience, the biggest problem is employers still expecting you to have a Computer Science degree when it isn't necessary at all. Also, at least in terms of programming, companies are contracting a LOT of work out to foreigners on various freelance websites and those guys in India are willing to code for peanuts. Is he going to regulate those websites? Trump is an expert on the cyber, I'm sure he has this all figured out.

In the tech field, H1B visa abuse is rampant. Companies use them to pay low wages to immigrants, and de fact trap them (if they threaten to quit or look for a new job or ask for a raise, they get fired and kicked out of the US) This has been a bipartisan issue for awhile, but I'm not surprised to see the New York Times and others attempt to politicize it. I couldn't find a link at RT about this, but here's another source that's almost as trustworthy:

If there's abuse in the H1B Visa program why not reform the program instead of slashing it?  Being in IT I see the shortage of qualified professionals all the time.  While H1Bs aren't the only solution to the problem it's certainly a component of it.

There were a few extra Patriots in the White House yesterday as the Super Bowl champs stopped by. The Failing New York Times tried to use a photo from the visit to make an entirely misleading comparison to public, but got called out by the Patriots Twitter:

"These photos lack context. Facts: In 2015, over 40 football staff were on the stairs. In 2017, they were seated on the South Lawn."

There were 30% fewer Patriots than there were in 2015.  POTUS should have more important things to worry about.   This is why he has accomplished nothing so far.  He wastes his time wit non issues.

^^ One of the nations most popular newspapers destroying the credibility they have worked so hard to maintain for 165 years is not a trivial issue. In fact, our untrustworthy media is one of the most important issues facing the American public, and it needs to be called out as it occurs. The only way one could call this "trivial" or a "non issue" is if they agree with the misleading message, which is something you two have very clearly demonstrated already.

The NY Times has been doing some if the best reporting.  Heck,  their reporting lead to O'Reilly's demise at Fox.   

The truth is that there were noticiby fewer Patriots at the WH and it hurts President Snowflake's fee fees.

It's funny that the NYT posting a picture showing the 30% less team members is destroying their credibility, yet POTUS is defending (the newly fired) Bill O'Reilly and that will probably boost the "credibility" of Fox News, and Infowars brainchild just exposed himself as a "performance artist." 

Credibility is in the eye of the audience.  Apparently the Donald doesn't get understand them.

Trump has been in office 3 months & hasnt even NAMED (let alone confirmed) a Dep Secretary for Defense or State.

Perhaps more significantly, we also do not have a single US Attorney in place. We had many -- but they were effectively fired. Now we have 0.

That is crazy. He's made 886 tweets though.

Excellent read!

"The men who freed this country from King George and then went on to forge a new nation were intellectual elites, the educated inheritors of The Renaissance and products of the Early Modern Age. They were able to create a new government because they were experts in government, educated in war and politics and science and religion and economics and social structures and all the hundreds of other things it takes to build a nation instead of tear one down."
