Indians Taking over IT jobs

I am an Indian(American Citizen) IT professional. I am looking for job and being discriminated by Indians who are on VISA's or Green Card. Trust me, there are millions small recruiting companies working in USA.

I see them having upper hand right now. In my case they approach me like 'Hey, I am Indian you are Indian hehehehehe. And after talking to me they realize that I am a us citizen and have totally different views about everything. Bam! I am not qualified to get a job or if i am working with them they will try everything to get me fired.

I hope I get a Job soon where i do not have this scenario. Which is lot to ask, since they are all over...We need some change ' A Miracle'.

And the right just keeps gettin stupider:

Last week, the Kansas House Education Committee introduced a bill that mandates teachers question the scientific basis of global warming, becoming the latest state to take up one of American Legislative Exchange Council’s “model bills” aiming to misrepresent climate change in schools.

Kansas would join Texas, Louisiana, Tennessee and Oklahoma as the fifth state to cast climate change as a “controversial” topic. But climate change is only controversial in political and polluter circles, not the scientific community.

97 percent of climate scientists actively publishing in the field agree climate change is human-caused.

As National Center for Science Education executive director Eugenie C. Scott explained,“The only effects of enacting such a misguided bill would be to discourage responsible teachers from presenting climate science accurately and to encourage irresponsible teachers to misrepresent it as controversial.”

So worship away, as they kill innocents and let their own get killed... how noble.

Then why did they LIE about Bengahzi for weeks, joe? Why are they STILL lying and stonewalling?

He's not going to answer... he doesn't care that they lie to us. He is in an arrested-development, worship of the state trance. As long as he gets his hand-outs, blood (American or otherwise) can spill outside of his his housing project without concern.

You guys are way to simple minded to have any fun with.

LIE about Bengahzi? Who's lying? Show me the proof.
Oh, that's right, you said they were lying.

You guys live in a really strange reality populated by similarly warped and repugnant losers like draft dodger Ted Nugent, chicken-hawk Dick Cheney, attack-dog Rush Limbaugh, and simply insane Glen Beck.

Who do you call a great man or woman?

Haven't you slugs realized yet when Coulter and Hannity trash the President and call him a wimp when our country is attacked, more votes for us.

When Limbaugh says that Al Queda let Obama kill Bin Laden to help re-elect him, 500,000 U.S. voters who inhabit Planet Earth move from undecided to Obama.

I guess I'm kinda glad you keep pushing the country more and more into the arms of rationality and the good old Democratic party.

Keep up the good work.

LIE about Bengahzi? Who's lying? Show me the proof.
You missed Susan Rice on FTN falsely claiming the attack was a spontaneous mob action in response to an offensive video?

You missed the testimony before Congress that Intel sources on the ground knew this was an organized, planned attack with indirect fire and heavy weapons immeidately, and the White house knew this also within 24 hour?

You missed Jay Carney and State Dept flacks continuing to push the "spontaneous demonstration" lie for weeks afterwards?

You missed Hillary stonewalling Congressional investigative committees, refusing to provide documents showing their ineptness and irresponsibility? You missed her trying to sleaze by with the lame dodge of "sharing" them in camera based on a lie that they were "sensitive," when in fact none of them were classified info? You missed the committee Chairman slamming her for this dishonesty, and entering the documents they had already received from a whistleblower into the record himself?

Which of these FACTS did your Obamalobotomized mind miss, joe? Do you really need "proof" of what aired live on NBC and CSPAN and was said by White House and State Dept press officers? Really? This is all, of course, common knowledge to anyone who's been paying attention, but do let me know which of these FACTS you doubt or challenge - and I'd LOVE to link you the transcripts, audio, and video ...

Hasn't been POTUS for over 4 years now.

What can we expect next from you? Lame attempts to justify Obama's failure and incompetence by ranting about the Harding administration? Makes just as much sense ...

Justifying Obama's abject failure and incompetence by casting about to find some other incompetent moron and then saying "Obama is just as incompetent and stupid as this moron" is not a particularly convincing line. You need to get on the phone to your Media Matters call center supervisor and get a more intelligent one.

Like I said, you and your right-wing media bosses label anything a lie if it comes from Liberals or Obama or the REAL world, not that simple-minded alternate place you live in.

You can keep screeching like a tea-party little girl about the "horrible conspiracy" the Obama Administration is trying to foist on you, but you'll have to be satisfied with an agreeing audience of yourself and the crackpots at fox news. The rest of the country and world ain't buying it.

Believing someone lied is not the same as them actually lying, you know.

We now know the Bush administration intentionally lied to convince us to invade Iraq. You remember those 4,500 American deaths don't you? And that's not even counting the estimated 60-100K civilian deaths. That would include women and children. Oh yeah, and over $3 trillion in American debt.

Now that's real world lying.

Bush lied and 4,500 Americans died, 100 thousand Iraqi civilians died.
But the lie that is a real lie, not the one you keep chirping out of your deeply disturbed brain, is the one Condi Rice made regarding the intelligence report that had it been acted on might have saved 2,800 American lives on 9/11.
2,800 American lives lost and lied about on 9/11.
4,500 American lives lost because of lies about WMD.
100,000 Iraqi civilians dead because of lies about Saddam.
And you have the disgusting nerve to write:
"Bush Bush Bush waaah waah WAAAAAHH!"
You need a morality check, bud.

Justifying Obama's abject failure and incompetence by arguing "Obama's incompetence and lying is ok because this other incompetent liar lied" is not an argument any thinking person can or should take seriously.

It's the equivalent of, "But Mom! Jimmy did it too!"

How did that line work for you with your Mom? Yeah - thought so.

This lame excuse doesn't work any better.

You need to get on the phone to your Media Matters/DNC call center supervisor and get a more intelligent script.
