Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati -Darn old Darnold edition

Good morning, everyone! I can’t help wondering if the bloom isn’t off the rose Marmalade Shartcannon just a bit.

After a week of crowing and high-fiving over The Darnold’s not being perp-walked out of the Oval Office (hey, when that sounds like a win….) , suddenly the party is over and the hangover has begun :

Latest Trump H-2B Increase Again Betrays American Workers
Center for Immigration Studies ^ | 29 March 2019 | Preston Huennekens

Posted on 3/29/2019, 3:58:41 PM by zeestephen

Today’s decision increases the H-2B cap by “only” 30,000, rather than the full 67,000 Congress authorized, but this surge nonetheless increases the cap to 96,000. Not even under President Obama did H-2B visas rise to such high levels….President Trump continues to increase the number of H-2B guestworkers every time he has the opportunity. This is entirely his own administration’s fault. He could, at any time, direct Secretary Nielsen to not increase the cap.

Hey – look at the bright side.
At least none of those coal workers are going to be replaced at their jobs.

That’s what we need, more Asian techs. Damn it!

If this is true, it’s antithetic to everything he’s run on.

You sound surprised.

Why give in on only this issue when he hasn’t on others?!

You don’t get out much, do you?

There’s no dearth of good tech workers here.

Duh, motherfucker.

There’s an abundance of companies, however, who don’t watn to pay good salaries.

Don’t hear much these days from those FReepers who defend big businesses cutting their costs to the bone, by hiring “cheaper labor” (read foreign workers) in order to make more profit, do we?

H2B is for hotel maids, basically.

H1B is for techs and is a far more concerning program, given that they’ve completely nuked the wage scale in what is arguably our single most important industry today, and flooded it with foreigners who have no loyalty to the USA.

These aren’t Asian tech workers, they are the temporary workers that stuff Trump’s clubs and pick the grapes in the Trump family vineyard during peak season.

And yes, if they paid enough they’d have plenty of Americans to do the work. Even if college kids who could work their studies around the schedule. (Much of it is summer or fall labor.)

The Trump Organization doesn’t agree with you. They’ve been using H2Bs at their resorts for years.

This is the third year in a row that trump has raised the quota on H2B. Everybody knows his hotels and golf courses hire lots of H2B

So…he doesn’t set a good example for everything. Eating fast food for instance. However he does do some things he personally does not necessarily agree with.

If you are old and worried about low-level workers you have already missed the boat all on your own.

I know what you mean. I charged them with greed and avarice, and they screamed “Free enterprise! Capitaism! We’re in business to make a profit!”, at me. While I believe in those three things, “what profits it a man, if he gain the world, and lose his soul?”

My worry about exogenous ‘low level workers’ is that my fellow citizen ‘low level workers’ become poorer, less employed, and more welfare oriented at my and our nation’s expense.

US approves sale of nuclear power technology to Saudi Arabia The Times of Israel ^ | 28 March 2019 | TOI staff and Agencies Posted on 3/28/2019, 7:42:10 PM by tkocur

The US has approved the sale of nuclear power technology to Saudi Arabia, the Reuters news agency reported on Thursday. Reuters says US Energy Secretary Rick Perry has allowed companies to sell know-how to the desert kingdom as part of a hoped-for broader deal

Citing a copy of a document it had seen, the global news outlet said US Energy Secretary Rick Perry had granted six secret authorizations to companies to sell the know-how to the desert kingdom as part of a hoped-for broader deal on nuclear power.

Reuters said that the US was looking to build at least two nuclear plants and that Russia and South Korea were also vying for the project. An announcement on the winning bid was to be made later this year, it said.

Quoting a source that declined to be named, the agency said Perry’s approvals enable companies to conduct preliminary work on nuclear power before a deal is signed, but that no equipment that could be used in a nuclear plant would be delivered.

I’m guessing that’s a “no”.
To: MrEdd

 

Do note that if they didn’t get it from US, they would get it from Russia or South Korea. Or, likely, the French. So they’d get the tech anyway.

Would you rather the US government has the secret kill switches to turn off their reactors should Saudi get uppity?

Um – that’s not how nuclear reactors work.

Or would you rather the Russians have it?

GOOD GOD. They are swimming in oil, and are an islamic feudal absolute monarchy that attacked us 18 years ago. WHAT THE HELL is that jackass Perry doing?
First the moron imports every moslem and Californian he can find into Texas, and now… he wants to give nukes to Saudi Arabia.

I know that this is gonna be a shock, but their Prince the repubs are so enamored with might be dead or deposed at any moment. Certainly in a few years. Why the F would you give them nukes.

GOD in HEAVEN…I hate the republican party. They are supposed to stand for America. Whores…whores that are exactly like Lenin said. Selling the rope that will be used to hang them.

Don’t like this. If we don’t want those we deem to be the bad guys in the ME to have the technology, nobody should have it. And that includes Israel.

    ROFL…even the guy whose screen name is “Trumpisourlastchance” and the guy whose tagline is “The Left should know if.. Trump is kicked out of office, it is WAR” are starting to realize that they’ve been had by someone who has been known for decades for being a conman. I even tried to warn one of them that they should pray he doesn’t become president.
