Description

I don’t even know if I should call it a moral dilemma. I’m not sure if that’s what it is but I have an incredible teaching opportunity based on what an acquaintance of mine posted online. It was an absolutely horrific rehearsal of a speech he is set to give. There are so many good points I can make that would improve his performance and teach others about influence. I just hate that I have to point out all this guy’s mistakes.

The big story for today is the migration crisis. Some 7000 troops have been deployed to our southern border to assist with the apprehension and tetention of what could be thousands of illegal immigrants attempting to cross the border.

I haven’t spoken about it yet because I was waiting to see if it was actually going to happen. (these things get blown out of proportion a lot) But it looks like there will be a showdown at the border.

Enjoy,

Jason

  • One of the more challenging issues Libertarians contend with is the philosophical support for open borders. How open should they be given the potential for importing violent jihadists?

  • How many of you in here support FairTax (FairTax.org)? I feel like FairTax coupled with amnesty and an easy┬ánaturalization process would be a recipe for economic growth. Just a theory. What do you guys think?

  • Donald Trump knows that raising the minimum wage puts people out of work, and he wants to use it for exactly that purpose. In a position paper (yes, Trump actually has position papers), he proposes raising the minimum wage for H-1B workers so that fewer of them will get jobs: Increase prevailing wage for H-1Bs. We graduate two times more Americans with STEM degrees each year than find STEM jobs, yet as much as two-thirds of entry-level hiring for IT jobs is accomplished through the H-1B program. More than half of H-1B visas are issued for the program’s lowest allowable wage level, and more than eighty percent for its bottom two. Raising the prevailing wage paid to H-1Bs will force companies to give these coveted entry-level jobs to the existing domestic pool of unemployed native and immigrant workers in the U.S., instead of flying in cheaper workers from overseas. This will improve the number of black, Hispanic and female workers in Silicon Valley who have been passed over in favor of the H-1B program. This is part of Trump’s hostility toward all foreigners; in the same paper, he repeats his intention to build a wall along the Mexican border and implies that immigrant workers are terrorists. The point here, though, is that he has enough business experience to recognize that a legal minimum wage which is higher than the market value of work doesn’t help people who are looking for jobs, but puts them out of work. He agrees with the “left” in wanting to raise minimum wages, but he not only admits but intends that it will put people out of work.
