Rating: 9 votes, 4.56 average.

Sometimes you overplay your hand. Keith Olbermann's take is here.

    That was indeed a really nice piece by Keith Olbermann.

    How about the other cases in Europe and other countries ?? How did it reach them ? Maybe there's a trans-atlantic tunnel we don't know about. Don't tell the extremists specially Glenn Beck, he'll freak out. : - )

    I wonder what's next. Blame the immigrants for today's anticipated bankruptcy announcement of Chrysler?

    These cowards does not even deserve the air time once again what you see is what you get.The idea that illegals started the swine flu is ridiculous really,I am not angry nor surprise Lou dobbs said illegals bings disease across the border, so regardless these people have there feelings sealed so no matter what there minds are made up. Michelle Bachman make that statement how stupid, and these are the people we voted in office with this kind of hatred and evil thoughts. This is not funny to me with this kind of behavior displaying on Tv and so on, i hope that people are watching cause the real extremists is right in front of us and sadly some people give in to this kind of stuff. Every body has the same feeling this is a movement a really bad one.

    Well, the republicans and conservatives are doing so bad that they have to find an easy scape goat to piggy back on and spread the hate!!!! I guess they did not learn the lesson on the lesson that by attacking Hispanics they will remain in the minority and their numbers will continue to shrink....

    hahah...thank god this time they are not blaming H1B for swine flu. I am not sure if the climate problem is because of H1Bs or illegals. How stupid these morons are. I am sick of it.

    What else did you expect? I am still surprised that the bigots at FAIR and CIS have not yet come and made statements to the effect that only should we shut immigrants out but unpatriotic for Americans to travel out of the country! I am still waiting!

    More likely I think hot temperatures without rain may actually kill this thing. Remember in Singapore, SARS disappeared when the weather got hot in late May and early June of 2003 and they did not have any rain for nearly six weeks..until mid to late July.

    George,
    It seems, some economists are getting and spreading the message that you posted so many times in this blog about how immigrants help the economy. I think, Greenspan is right on target

    I am a little disappointed with Greenspan - too many references to the anti-like adoration of "cultural roots". I am going to blame it on Greenspan being a little old, because nobody is going to deny the impact of "cultural convergence" that has accelerated with the spreading of the internet all over the globe (or, as the younger generation would put is - Dude, what cultural divide?). However, it was a interesting to read his opinion on shielding the high-skilled workforce and its negative impact on the society. That was a nice virtual bird-flipping to the losers' guild.

    Did you read the testimony of Jeff Moseley? It is EXCELLENT! Very rare there is a person who understands the problem in depth, very comprehensively, has the facts to back up, and points to the right solution. Notice the frequent mentioning of the 5K quota - this is actually EB quota for unskilled workers. Every EB immigrant stuck in this stupid system should send a thank you note to Jeff.

    "It seems, some economists are getting and spreading the message that you posted so many times in this blog about how immigrants help the economy. I think, Greenspan is right on target."

    The problem is the economists still have not addressed the issue of skilled migration on FDI. Does restrictions on skilled migration lead to the migration of FDI in other countries? As a result, there has been a vacuum, which has been filled by the likes of Ron Hira, George Borjas and Vernon Briggs in the US and Robert "the Quack" Birell in Australia..a demographer masquerading as an economist. So what do we have? Every year Grassley and Durbin introduce legislation to restrict H1Bs...of course it goes nowhere thankfully and everything is at a standstill.

    However, my simple retort folks like Rachel and Jack is not intellectual argument: "Do you think that is fine for Americans in other countries taking jobs from locals? If so are you willing to call for Americans to come back home for good and find employment here? Or is it a one way street with Americans and other western nationals wanting all the privilege?" They only respond with vitriol or never answer the questions. I know for sure that Grassley wants Americans to come back home. He wants to remove all tax incentives to working or investing abroad. The rest of the gang led by Sessions, DeMint and others, they just want special privilege for Americans in employment all over the world..to be more precise white American privilege!

    One more thing. My experience with Americans working in countries like Malaysia is that they want privilege. These expats while making close to US$ 500,000 tell the locals that they have come to uplift them, and that the locals should not go even to rich neighboring countries like Singapore and instead stay at home and uplift their country. Thirty years ago white American missionaries in India used to repeat this mantra to their dark skinned flock. Now the American expats have caught up.

    - What a bunch of hypocrites. Why don't the antis focus their energies to these expats and tell them to go back to America and uplift their country of birth.

    Oh I forgot, these antis makes so much contradictions themselves as well.

    And now they are saying that the swine flu might have originated in the US.

    When the antis in the Canadian government restricted Canadian faculty to citizens or permanent residents of Canada back in 1981, they made a concerted effort to try to convince Canadians abroad to return home..not so our antis..they want a one way street! They are not saying that if we have a shortage we should get the US citizens abroad to come back home to seek employment.
