Brian, while I truly, deeply feel for the unemployed who would rather whine about the crappy wages (and remain unemployed) than start a job and work their way to better pay, I'm also aware of some of the realities of doing business in the global market. I pay you $X per year to write code, Gupta pays his programmer $X-Y per year to write the same code. Who gets to sell their product more cheaply.
As to your comment about turnover, again, that's a cost of doing business. Cite your "plenty of evidence" to prove otherwise, else stop yakking about rumour and myth.
The part of your excellent, humorous post regarding Lamar Smith's constituents is - as far as I can tell - a statement that simply says, "I'm a cynic, humour me". I don't care and I won't.
As for the motivation for US companies to advocate H1B visas, well, d-uh! (And, might I add, if it weren't for the capitalist system you seem to disdain, you wouldn't have this forum on which to respond to me. Oh, and do please respond.)
