Tech industry's persistent claim of worker shortage may be phony

There's no "may be" about it.  The phoniness of the claimed shortage dates back many years.

Alice Tornquist, a Washington lobbyist for the high-tech firm Qualcomm, took the stage at a recent Qualcomm-underwritten conference to remind her audience that companies like hers face a dire shortage of university graduates in engineering. The urgent remedy she advocated was to raise the cap on visas for foreign-born engineers.

Opponents of the nuclear deal have turned what should have been a thoughtful debate into a vicious battle against President Obama.

The 24 day talking point comes from a misunderstanding of the following explanation from Wikipedia:

If IAEA inspectors have concerns that Iran is developing nuclear capabilities at any non-declared sites, they may request access "to verify the absence of undeclared nuclear materials and activities or activities inconsistent with" the agreement, informing Iran of the basis for their concerns.[32] The inspectors would only come from countries with which Iran has diplomatic relations.[34] Iran may admit the inspectors to such site or propose alternatives to inspection that might satisfy the IAEA's concerns.[32] If such an agreement cannot be reached, a process running to a maximum of 24 days is triggered.[32] Under this process, Iran and the IAEA have 14 days to resolve disagreements among themselves.[32] If they fail to, the Joint Commission (including all eight parties) would have one week in which to consider the intelligence which initiated the IAEA request. A majority of the Commission (at least five of the eight members) could then inform Iran of the action that it would be required to take within three more days.[35][36] The majority rule provision "means the United States and its European allies—Britain, France, Germany and the EU—could insist on access or any other steps and that Iran, Russia or China could not veto them."[35] If Iran did not comply with the decision within three days, sanctions would be automatically reimposed under the snapback provision (see below).[36]

Calling GWBush a psychopathic puppet is an insult to Chucky

America is like two conjoined twins that can't be separated, and the twin without a brain won't stop smacking the twin that has one.

Honestly, given the original restrictions on holding office, I'm not so sure.

Introduction
I enjoy playing trivia with my friends; I contribute answers once in a while but I have some very smart friends -- they provide most of the answers! 

My wife and I are personally very comfortable; not rich, just comfortable.  I care about the opportunities afforded to others including education, health care, security, and safety.

I enjoy programming in PHP and MySQL.  I bought my first computer in the summer of 1978 -- a Tandy Radio Shack Model 1 with 4k of memory and a one-quarter inch tape deck for saving the basic programs.

Later, I wrote a few programs in assembly, C, and Pascal languages.

I was in the US Air Force for almost 4-years.  During that enlistment, I received Basic Training at Lackland AFB near San Antonio, Texas; attended Electronics School in Biloxi, Mississippi; stationed in Karamursel, Turkey for 18-months; stationed at Forbes AFB near Topeka, Kansas for two-years; sent TDY from Forbes to Vietnam and Thailand for three months (Thuy Hoa and Con Son Island, Vietnam and Trakan, Thailand [northeast of Ubon]); sent TDY from Forbes to Salina, Kansas; and sent TDY from Forbes to Brazil (Brasilia and Tres Lagos).
