All of this   is a part of elaborate   plan designed and funded by the super- rich with the idea   to transfer the people of this country   from the   land of the free to the land of the crowd but I will not elaborate here about that. I   still hadn't   addressed my friend's concerns.   Why is that our   immigrant folks hate Obama so   vehemently.


It is because   such hate is cheap. Our immigrant folks are not even engineers. Neither they are other technical professionals. They   are in real estate,   office management, many of them are    data programmers.   They   suffer   from the same tendencies and vices as engineers though. More and more of them are squeezed out to the fringes. And there they sit and blame Obama. Cheap hate as I said. Kitchen talk.


Ok, the super- rich   have an agenda and go for it. They know what they are doing and know what kind of a battle they wage. Their victory will be achieved when   this country returns to Y1896   but with all   the technology and outsourcing of nowadays. They wage war on people.   We,  the professionals, on what side should we be?


IMHO, we should   be on the progressive side, against the super- rich.   There are many reasons for   this choice but one is   the most paramount for our interests- my interests.

As a professional I am interested in the following:


-           Diverse market for   my profession with the emphasis on   capability rather than some narrow skill.

-           High pay for my services

-           Good and reasonable   Health Service

-           Retirement benefits

-           Good public schools for my kids if any (so that I will not have to pay   for the private school and still pay my property taxes)

-           Vast network of vocational schools and community colleges from which we, engineers should get technicians and be able offer them good jobs.
