To me this H1B Visa thing would mostly be OK if the corporations and the people who made all this money of them PAID THE TAXES THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO.

Reagan set this up, CUT, CUT, CUT until the end goal is to get rid of taxes and instill the idea that paying taxes at all is unacceptable. If Zuckerberg, Gates, Chambers. Schmidt, et al paid their damn taxes and quit trying to screw the government and the rest of the country those taxes would be funding American students to learn computer science and the high-tech skills that are necessary.

The vision and the trajectory for the country this has brought about has been the main thing that provokes most of the problems we have now, not to mention the total lack of respect for the truth or honest argument and discussion and the buying of the media to prevent or distort news and information.

These people are killing the goose that laid the golden egg so they can play at being big shots ... like the big shots in other countries that by our culture should not even exist.

And not to mention that these technologies of today can spread and create weapons of mass destruction in ways that trying to develop the world by buying cars and TVs from other countries never did.

We cannot have a society that survives when we let people who do not care about its survival and integrity open the gates and let too many people in and too many secrets out.

Why does anyone even listen to Mark Zuckerberg? He is childish, immature, naive, easily swayed by a smooth talker, undereducated by a mile, self-centered, and in desperate need of supervision, and appears to have no mind of his own. And that is only what family members who work for him say!

Scmuckerberg nailed it ... but they listen to him because he controls over a billion dollars ...

My question is ... WHY DO WE KEEP SEEING THIS PATTERN OF VERY RICH PEOPLE TAKING THE MANTLE OF SUPERIORITY AND POWER AND WRECKING THE COUNTRY FOR THEIR OWN SELFISH EGO GRATIFICATION - WHY THE HELL DO NOT ALL AMERICANS WHO PROBABLY GET THAT THIS IS NOT WORKING - DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT !

I have a great respect for anyone that comes up with any great idea, even one as a simple-minded as Facebook, but because someone creates some system of generating money it does not make them a fit executive, legislator, or judge, or leader or moral authority ... or anything but a guy who hit on an idea before someone else ... and there is always someone else who would have the idea.

H1B Visa's are doing to the tech industry what Illegal Immigration has already done to the trades.

Basically, it's a form of outsourcing. It's lowered the standards in the trades. Unfortunately, the current generation doesn't have a frame of reference for the quality, honesty and dependability of blue collar workers before they were all replaced by illegal immigrants.

It's only a matter of time before the same is true for the tech industry.
