Lost without Indian engineers

The San Jose Mercury News reports:
Foreigners are wrecking America, some say, but new data suggests that Silicon Valley would be lost without them.

About 71 percent of tech workers in the valley are foreign-born, compared to about 50 percent in the San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward region, according to a new report based on 2016 census data. ...

Although 2016 data released by the federal government last year shows that outsourcing companies — mostly from India — raked in the bulk of H-1B visas, Google took more than 2,500 and Apple nearly 2,000 to hire foreign workers, about 60 percent of them holding master’s degrees.

Large companies, the Seattle Times pointed out, are better equipped to bring in workers under the H-1B.
Lost without them? Not a chance.

Americans sent a man to the Moon without Indian engineers. Sure, we had Werner von Braun, but nearly all the work was done by Americans.

And now we need Indians to make some web sites for Google and Facebook? This is pitiful. Every one of those H-1B jobs could be better done by an American.

I remember my days in Alabama, [very few] times [in fact only once] under Indian engineers. [It happened only once. He was a BTech IITian, and as a senior and towards me being a non-IITian, being deceptive, in the lab-work he took.]

Also, those in California, under Indian engineers. [The bastards need to be taught more than a lesson, speaking "in general."]

But, still, I think, all in all, here you behave like a True Christian. You make achievement impossible.

You also play the card of a True Non-Brahmin Under a Brahmin.

I *think* you do.

But, still, couldn't possibly say: "Welcome to the Club," Roger!

But, best wishes, anyway,

But, one more non-sense coming from you about my past potentialities to be realized in your country and not actually done, and, I would regard you as a non-friend.

You gotta to take the immediately last paragraph seriously, Roger! So what if you Christians rule your Government (and by implication, also ours.) If this is what your family stood for, well, I don't have sympathy to share with you.

Yes, kick out lakhs of Indian engineers from CA. But kick out even many more Christians (and Christianity-influenced) even before them (from CA, USA, AND India). Including those who in part sent a man on the moon.

Begin with yourself, Roger. DON'T read my blog. NO. DON'T DO THAT. Not until I explicitly permit you to do so. Also ask your family, your priest, your pope, and your followers, to do the same.

[Guess you know that I had no ill-will for those from the last sentence.]

Anyway, too late in the night, and so, bye for now... Let me leave. Plus, I already asked you NOT to read a single blog-post of mine, didn't I?

Good-will to you, at least for the time-being, anyway,
