The Exporting of High Tech Jobs Is Only The
Now US High Tech Jobs Are Going To Specially "Green-Carded"
Humor: If GM Cars Were Built by Microsoft.
And Is Bill Gates Really The Anti-Christ?
Microsoft's Stock Looks Vulnerable
I got an old customer back this week. He had
been laid off when his high-
tech company moved from California two years ago. Now the company has
moved back. And he has been re-hired, but at a lower salary! Some
would say that I should not concern myself with whether or not American
keep their workers here and what they pay them. But this little story
that I will benefit as a businessman if my customers, many of whom are high
professionals, are paid a decent wage and their jobs are not sent
So, you see, it is my business.
Goldman Sachs says that up to 6 million white collar jobs will be
lost in the US over
ten years, due to outsourcing. Asked about this in the 2004
Bush said someone whose high-tech job is outsourced should go back to community
college and retool. "I have a Computer Science degree, so I should
go back and
get a degree in. . . what?" asked one jobless worker posting in a ZDNet forum.
another: "I'm nearly 50, with 20 years in the IT field, and can't get a job 2

There has been a considerable comeback from the days of the
biggest layoffs between 2001
and 2004. But the layoffs continue at places like Micro
Technologies and now there
is a new threat to IT workers.
The Green-Carding of American High-Tech
Now Microsoft's Bill Gates says that he just can't find enough
workers. He urges Congress to increase the immigration of high tech
because there are not enough qualified professionals here. What self-serving
He knows he can pay someone from India who can get a "Green
Card" much less.
He just wants to make more money! How much more money does he need?
Every day qualified high tech workers are being laid off in the US as
over-paid corporate executives seek a higher profit margin by exploiting
American workers who must longer and longer hours, for smaller and smaller pay
checks. .That's plain wrong and it hurts my business, too!
The Washington Post has recently run an article showing that
not even recruit on any California State University campus. One lady wrote:
"The H-1B program is simply a ploy by Bill Gates and Michael Dell to flood the
American market with cheap foreign labor and to bring down wages in America.
My husbands job was offshored and he's had difficulty finding another one. He has
two Masters degrees from Universities in the US. How much more educated can
he get? No one can be an idiot and make it through 2 Masters programs."
Now with so many high tech jobs going overseas, many students do
American companies. Why should they learn the skills for a job which will
be outsourced, or for which there will be a green-carded high tech professional?
"The vast majority of American companies that hire foreign
worker through the
H-1B visa program do not have to prove - or even declare - that they have searched
for American workers first.' Foreign workers can be hired under this program
up to six years. (Atlantic Journal Constitution - 5/20/2007)
The Watchdog agency of Congress, the General Accounting
Office, says there are
serious flaws in two oft-cited reports from companies like Microsoft that claim
nation is suffering from a shortage of technology workers. (Goggle

BILL GATES VS
At a recent
computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto
industry and stated that :- "If GM had kept up with technology like the computer
industry has, we would all be driving twenty-five dollar cars that got 1000 miles to the
In response to Gates' comments, General Motors issued a press release stating:
If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the
1. For no reason whatsoever your car would crash twice a day.
2. Every time they repainted the lines on the road you would have to buy a new car.
3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason, and you would just accept
this, restart and drive on.
4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn, would cause your car to shut
down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.
5. Only one person at a time could use the car, unless you bought "Car95" or
"CarNT". But then you would have to buy more seats.
6. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, reliable, five times as fast,
and twice as easy to drive, but would only work on five percent of the roads.
7. The oil, water temperature and alternator warning lights would be replaced by a single
"general car default" warning light.
8. New seats would force everyone to have the same size butt.
9. The airbag system would say "Are you sure?" before going off.
10. Occasionally for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let
you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key, and grab hold of
the radio antenna.
11. GM would require all car buyers to also purchase a deluxe set of Rand McNally road
maps (now a GM subsidiary), even though they neither need them nor want them. Attempting
to delete this option would immediately cause the car's performance to diminish by 50% or
more. Moreover, GM would become a target for investigation by the Justice Department.
12. Every time GM introduced a new model car buyers would have to learn to drive all over
again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.
13. You'd press the "start" button to shut off the engine.
Bill Gates Really The Anti-Christ?
The real name of "the" Bill Gates is William Henry Gates III.
Nowadays he is known as Bill Gates (III), where "III" means the
order of third (3rd.)
By converting the letters of his current name to the ASCII-values
and adding his (III), you get the following:
Some might ask, "How did Bill Gates get so powerful?" Coincidence?
Or just the beginning of mankind's ultimate and total enslavement???
Before you decide, consider the following:
M S - D O S 6 . 2 1
77+83+45+68+79+83+32+54+46+50+49 = 666
W I N D O W S 9 5
87+73+78+68+79+87+83+57+53+1 = 666
Stock Looks Vulnerable
MSFT's stock has essentially missed the 2003-2007 bull market. It has
gained very little since the market's bottom in March 2003, when it was 23,
up only to 29.47. Meanwhile, the DJI-30 has risen from 7500 to 13,500
the Indian Stock Market has boomed from 3000 to 14,100 or +367%.
Its Tiger chart shows it to be under Big-Money Distribution. Bill Gates is
a very big seller. And the stock is again under-performing the DJI-30.
