    Internet billionaire Marc Benioff is urging the GOP Congress and President Donald Trump to fast-track 400,000 foreign visa-workers — plus 400,000 family members — to green cards, the U.S. job market, and the ballot box. “This is good for our economy,” Benioff said in a Tuesday tweet that was applauded by Silicon Valley lobbyists. “We need to grow our workers to grow our economy.” Benioff’s comment is a tautology: Expanding the population by importing more than 800,000 people would obviously grow the nation’s economy, retail sales, government taxes, company profits, and Wall Street stock options. But Benioff’s cheap-labor importation plan...

    The United States Supreme Court has spoken. The country’s highest court has essentially ruled that racism is a thing of the past in America. Gone are the times when black people were hunted down and lynched, times when Congress had to provide African-Americans with legislative protection, like the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the greatest achievement of the US civil rights movement. … “Our nation has made great strides,” Chief Justice John Roberts, born in Buffalo, New York, wrote in the majority decision. But has it? Certainly. The situation today is nowhere near as bad as it was during the...

    The United States is viewed less favorably in much of the Arab world today than it was during the final year of the Bush administration, and President Obama is less popular in the region than Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, according to a poll released today by the Arab American Institute, a nonpartisan research and advocacy group. Attitudes towards the US president and the United States as a whole have been growing increasingly negative over the past ten years due to the invasion of Iraq, outrage over Guantanamo Bay, and continued frustration over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, said James Zogby, president of...

    How many trillions has Obama decided to spend? Who blamed Bush for spending millions? Obama of course! So, Obama decided to spend trillions to fix the economy and search for Osama. Nice plan! He is doing a better job than Osama! I never knew there were so many incompetent people (white and black) that would vote for such a paper mache man. Obama spent the most in world history on his campaign and fooled 54% of American voters. I knew the schools in America were bad but gee weez! A strong voice, millions of dollars and a teleprompter go a...
