Cohen & Grigsby: Serfing the Net?

Al Gore Sits on the Board of Google..."Serfing the Net"***

***2Truthy clarifies that the former V.P. has nothing to do with Cohen & Grigsby. Can he reform the system?

2Truthy has been telling you all along that Congress has sold out our jobs for America's educated middle class to greedy corporate executives at Microsoft, Oracle, Cisco, Google and most every corporation through outsourcing and H1bs. Oh, but then a Democratic Congress was going to make everything better, and Madame Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, friend of the tech lobby, would do everything in her power to make millions of educated Americans lose their jobs and become replaced by cheap workers from the third world because, after all, those tech CEOS and venture capitalists could reward her and her children handsomely in stocks, especially those hush hush green tech stocks that high profile board members with ties to the Beltway are 'dabbling' in, no? It's a lot like the Sopranos, only a little more incestuous.

But many, surprisingly on the Left -- looked away, showing disdain for their fellow pink-slipped neighbors while pitying the poor of the third world and doing nothing about the mass exodus of our job and civil liberties due to the corrupt marriage of corporations and beltway lobbyists. Worse, when guys like Lou Dobbs have to pick up the message because the Left sits on their hands sucking up to corporate cool, well, that's nothing short of whacked.

Now, a couple of lightbulb attorneys at Cohen & Grigsby came up with a GREAT idea: to make a video based upon their seminars where they instruct corporate HR (abbreviation for whore) departments by stating:

"The clear goal is to NOT hire a qualifed American worker."

Perfect Storm. This is gonna piss off the right wing, the left wing, the bat wing plus red and blue states, and one thing's for sure: you don't mess with an American's job and then laugh about it.


Watch the video and READ all the comments.

Immigration attorneys from Cohen & Grigsby explains how they assist employers in running classified ads with the goal of NOT finding any qualified applicants, and the steps they go through to disqualify even the most qualified Americans in order to secure green cards for H-1b workers. See what Bush and Congress really mean by a "shortage of skilled U.S. workers."

And then, write to Al Gore and ask him while he is sitting around on the board of Google, if he can please make Google the FIRST corporation to apply a HIRE an AMERICAN FIRST corporate responsibility act and start cleaning house. (We do not have a labor shortage, only a shortage of citizens who can not afford to be unemployed or paid substandard wages.) You know, to set an example. Will we sit back while over 45 millions Americans and more become a nation of serfs? Maybe it will help his approval rating since he hasn't ruled out a 2008 run. Tell him:

"Hey Al, we want green, alright. $$$$. When you sit on the board of Google who is a major H1B/outsourcer, is this what you mean by "serfing" the net"?

The class action law suit potential against this stupid lawy firm is a given, but what were they thinking? Was it some numbskull in their marketing department that thought this would be "good" PR? If I were to place my bet today, it would be a Gore/Obama ticket even though are DLC party line representatives.

If Gore runs, maybe he does have a great plan to start hiring Americans first and to create tons of hot new tech jobs. The candidate who works for this will have my support.

Well, fair to say that I suppose it might be possible that he would want to, as a board member, positively influence corporate governance and we just don't know about it since its all secret anyway? t.t.

The truth is that there is a widening gap between rich and poor that is eroding the Great American Middle Class whether he admits to it or not. This could continue until a few indolent rich rule over a multitude of indigent poor, unless something is done.

One of the problems with protecting the middle class from erosion is the growing size of corporations as they gobble up other companies resulting in a lack of competition and the growing specter of monopoly. This condition causes higher prices, less customer service, poor quality, lower wages, higher unemployment, and a smaller workforce.

It also produces a higher concentration of corporate profits and CEO entitlements. This is a situation not intended by the concept of the American Free Enterprise System and the American Dream.

As predicted by Frederick Hayek, we are traveling down the Rad to SERFDOM.

But commerce and industry are not alone to blame for this; There is a growing state of complicity with an ever growing and authoritarian government.

While all this is going on, there is a new political game in town where Centrists are gaining ground amassing a grass roots consensus of political power consolidating divergent groups to form a voting bloc to counter the minority money power: votes vs. money.
Al the while the Democrats are still playing the old game of liberal and progressive left against the conservative right.
