    How's this for a plan:

    One of our two major party Presidential candidates wants to do this.

    Grant permanent residency to eligible graduates with advanced degrees in math, science, and engineering

    I think it would be nice for our government to compel corporations and companies to hire Americans first.

    What say you?

    I think the current system of U.S. universities and grant writing organizations shelling out the bucks to pay for the graduate educations of foreign students in physics, chemistry, computer science, etc. and then shipping them home as soon as possible after they get their degrees to become assets to their home countries makes the most sense. We certainly do not want the brightest scientists and engineers working here no matter where they came from, no one wants anymore German rocket scientists or Asian technology innovators.

    Obama wants to bomb Syria, that peaceful guy that wanted to “stop wars” Bush started. I am left with the impression America has lost it's freaking collective mind. The same guy wants to give invading illegal aliens amnesty that take jobs from American lower class and absorb money aimed at resolving American poverty. As someone pointed out, we bail out wall street crumbs after they perpetrated a major catastrophe and screw millions. What is wrong with us? What happened to common sense?

    I say we've already liberated CAPITAL from the burden of responsibility to the nation...

    so why not the same for all workers in the world?

    They don't matter, they are not citizens.
