    If we have no cap on the H-1b, the guy in the truck could be a body shop recruiter and everyone outside could be developers.

    Supply and demand.

    Some immigration news from Britian that implies CNN (Lou Dobbs) == BBC.

    Roy,

    You PG guys are so H1B obsessed you just can't think outside of it. Think what'll happen if H1B is cancelled!

    What'll Kim Berry do with all the sparetime in his hand that he now spends posting comments at ALL the websites that have any article related to H1B and EB immigration? I'm not surprised if he gets institutionalized for depression due to loneliness.

    Maybe take his (immigrant) wife and kids to the zoo. I'll buy a boat and go fishing with my son - and his immigrant mother/my wife.

    We aren't obsessed with immigration - it isn't even a factor for me. We love our profession and want to see our nation excel - not have it's wealth apportioned to other nations.

    After I've caught my share of fish, I'll go back to work and help grow technology in my community.

    Maybe they don't work. Lou has an immigrant wife too.

    Like I said before, this isn't an issue of immigration. It's an issue of exploitation for economic gain. There are plenty of people on my side of the fence who are pro-immigration.

    If we were anti-immigrant we would be talking about closing the border and shutting out immigrants. Instead we are talking about ways to improve the program so that people aren't exploited. That sounds pro-immigration to me.

    With deabeat husbands like that? Ha-ha-ha, of course, they work!

    If you want to insult people who work very hard for a living, at least come up with something better than calling us deadbeats.

    What do you do after working hours? I have professional events, networking events, speaking events, political events - etc. I also organize many of these events. What do you do with your time besides anonymously insult people on blogs?

    No wonder you want the whole thing to end. You must be hard pressed to find time for family events.

    Happy Friday, everybody.

    "No wonder you want the whole thing to end. You must be hard pressed to find time for family events."

    You can say that again. This debate is quite nausiating. If both sides can reach an agreement, most of the problems go away.

    I think a good enough agreement will be Durbin/Grassley in conjunction with a higher H-1b cap and a streamlined GC process. There are people who won't budge on anything - in both camps. Screw them all, because enough is enough. They are in one extreme of the other - anti-immigrant or anti-labor. There is a smart middle ground where we all come out ahead.

    Well, Roy, someone had to say it. But I am glad you got fired up, maybe it will motivate you to do something useful with your life. And by useful I do not mean paying back that 24 y.o. fresh off the boat Indian programmer who replaced you by giving your time to the hate cause. You need to admit he was better than you and move one. Maybe a career in event planning?

    "...by giving your time to the hate cause."

    I say this from the bottom of my heart - and seriously mean it: Screw You.

    How dare you accuse me of being a member of a hate group. You attack people anonymously and you are the lowest of low for such slander.

    I have argued for solutions that help immigrants - including greencards to replace the H-1b program. You have been there from day one arguing for a system that creates defacto indentured servants. A system that thrives on exploitation of people. Shame on you you arrogant weasel.

    You are part of the problem. I sleep well at night knowing that I seek fundemental fairness. You on the other hand, how do you live with yourself? I simply couldn't do it - supporting the exploitation of people like you have for such a long time.

    I think I know why you post anonymously. Not because you fear what others may do to do. You post anonymously because you are ashamed of what you say. And you should be. If you were proud of your words, you would come out of the shadows.

    Legal and No Longer Waiting - in the next blog on the FRC your only comment was "Crazy Christians". Perhaps you are the person in a hate group.

    If you swap the word "Christians" for "Muslims" or "Jews" it is clearly seen as hateful speech. Just what is wrong with you? I guess there really are people in this world with alot of hate in their heart. I feel sorry for you, with all that hate building up inside.

    Roy,

    I agree that you are as pro-immigrant as Lou Dobbs, who also shamelessly drags his Mexican wife to prove himself pro-immigration after calling Mexicans lepers, diseases, gangsters, drug dealers and what not. Your boss Kim Berry does the same with Indians (and FYI Mexicans too after posting the disclaimer that his org isn't concerned with low-skilled immigration).

    It's funny to see the same group that explicitly claims it wants to end H1B visa propose reforms to the system. It's like Ahmedinizad proposing reforms to the Israel - lacks credibility. It's not us but your boss Kim Berry who has closed the door for all discussion due to his irrational fear and hatred of Indians. Why do you expect us to discuss anything with a group that wants to send us back through any means possible? I don't see any reason why we should. Whatever you might think about us "cheap labor" foreigners, we aren't stupid not to recognize wolves in sheep's clothing.

    I have not seen anyone (else) from PG support you so-called GC proposal [ which is a sham if you ask me]. First step is getting the approval for it from Kim Berry. Then we can consider it for further discussion here. Till Mr. Berry gives it the seal of aproval, don't waste your time posting such sham proposals here.

    You beating the drum here about GCs is meaningless while Kim Berry is tooth and nail opposed to any increases in GCs. Enough of this 'Good Cop Bad Cop' drama. (you guys suck at it. you are programmers, not actors!)

    WD - thanks for proving once again that the only response you guys have to logic are personal insults and slander.

    I don't get approval from anyone to discuss my views on this issue. I wouldn't propose a GC instead if I didn't genuinely believe in that. As a member of the IEEE-USA I believe their position is inline with mine.

    Of course you don't really care one way or another about what the truth is. I think you are content with insulting me and attacking anyone with a position different than yours. I've found that people posting anonymously all have that one thing in common. They don't care about their reputation or intellectual honesty because after all, you are anonymous so you can say whatever absurd thing you want.
  17. R. Lawson's Avatar
    I would also point out that the only people who seem to oppose the bi-partisan Durbin/Grassley legislation also happen to work for offshoring firms, are IT lobbyists, or are immigration attorneys who make good money helping companies exploit people.

    WD - you aren't working for Infosys, Wipro, Tata, or one of the others are you? Or perhaps you are a lobbyist/attorney? Which is it?

    Roy - If you don't like this community, please go somewhere else. If you think everyone is intellectually dishonest but yourself, find another community where you can find a group that meets your criteria. You have promised in the past you were done with us. Why do you keep coming back?
  19. Greg Siskind's Avatar
    Say goodbye, Roy. I've allowed you to post your opinions freely here, but I'm not putting up with your questioning my integrity or the integrity of the folks who make up this community. You've posted your last post. Feel free to trash me on your own blog, but not here.
