Bill Gates Seeks New Positions from Gay Swami for H-1B Pleasure Trysts


Welcome to this special edition of The Gay Swami Times, Vol. 3, Issue 3. (Note that the graphic above sports a typo which reads “Issue 92” and not “Issue 3” because we took the leap, on a dare - to outsource this work and are still on hold to consultant “Kevin” in Hyderabad, demanding our money back.) Click here for previous releases.


“Coop’s Corner” Charles Cooper at CNET News blows the lid off confirmed reports that Bill Gates is seeking more H-1Bs. Read the full CNET expose Layoff news won't deter techs on H-1B here.


Microsoft's Bill Gates’ uncontrollable, insatiable appetite for more H-1B romps has reached a new low as The Reamer of Redmond said Monday that Microsoft had “no plans to change its position on H-1Bs.”


“Hahahaha, you’re ALL monkeys to me!” wildly moans an ecstatic, alpha ape Bill Gates, as he defies the experts once again, making John Chambers look like an amateur with his latest solicitation for even more H-1B lovers to ride him and his movie downloading loving board member(s) like Hanuman, the Monkey King, kneeling before Lord Rama.


Charles Cooper writes:


“The Black Monday announcement of more than 71,000 jobs lost is a stunner. Today it was Texas Instruments and Sprint Nextel adding their names to the listof tech companies handing out pink slips. Tomorrow? Anybody's guess.


In uncertain times, the only sure bet is that Congress is going to come under renewed pressure to revisit its practice of granting temporary visas to foreign workers. Already, Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) is pressing Microsoft to give Americans priority over foreigners working in this country with H-1Bs.


"My point is that during a layoff, companies should not be retaining H-1B or other work visa program employees over qualified American workers," Grassley wrote on Friday after Microsoft announced its first across-the-board layoffs. "Our immigration policy is not intended to harm the American work force. I encourage Microsoft to ensure that Americans are given priority in job retention. Microsoft has a moral obligation to protect these American workers by putting them first during these difficult economic times."


Microsoft said Monday it had no plans to change its position on H-1Bs.”

I was wondering if Billy Boy will be heading back to Washington DC in March again this year to plead for more H-1B visas. I was also waiting to see what blockbuster study will come out just in time for his flight to DC. For every H-1B hired in, 4 to 7.5 Big 3 autos are sold?

What interests (er, disgusts, nauseates, revolts?) most about these reports are the comments - not the ones from the righteously outraged, or the honest self-serving s.o.b. shills, but from the earnest martyrs of the new holy religion of globalization, selflessly ready to sacrifice their families and yours for the sainted foreign workers, and foreign nations, whose boots we aren't worthy to lick.

You know the type; there's always a sprinkling of them in any comments section - squealing out "but at least these jobs are staying in the country", or "these people are paying taxes and supporting the local economy", or "but it's racist and xenophobic to object to anything that happens to involve non-whites or non-citizens", etc., while they're being vigorously sodomized by the New World Order. Contrary to the common complaint, American schools must be succeeding spectacularly at producing just want our corporate masters want - drones with brains propagandized into utter vacuity, purged of any concept of duty to self, family, or countrymen, dickless, nutless, empty husks. But as familiar as I am with these creatures, I gotta say that the comment by saintly altruist "mazama09" still managed to revive the ol' gag reflex that I thought had been lost with the rest of my innocence:

"I was laid off by Microsoft and don't begrudge my co-workers from other countries a single thing! They work hard and have left their homes and family behind to come to work over here. They are incredible people and I have nothing but admiration for them. Saving my job, which was not essential to the core business, at the expense of my foreign co-workers who have sacrificed so much to be here is wrong on many levels.

Pretending that we are separate from a global economy won't help a thing. We shouldn't forget that much of what keeps Microsoft and other multinational companies afloat is global business. We can't turn back the clock and it wouldn't be a good idea in any event.

Microsoft is trying to reduce staff in areas that can't be directly tied to profit. I'm glad they're thinking strategically rather than politically in this instance. It's better for everyone if they stay strong and profitable rather than cave in to xenophobic pressure.
"

I loved Big Brother! Dulce et decorum est to lay down one's country for a multinational corporation! Man is made for the Economy, not the Economy for man! I confess to whatever is I've been accused of and recant any sinful unconscious belief I retained in the value and meaning of nation and citizenship! Resistance is futile!

Excuse me a minute...OK, back from a run to the bathroom for a puke. Dear God - is allowing yourself to be castrated and subjected to a low-protein, sleep-deprived, Dear Leader worship session part of employee orientation at Microsoft? Or do the alpha dogs only hire eunuchs in the first place?

Good one, Carrie.

(Seen the letter from the usual suspects, predicting destruction of the economy if "Buy American" isn't stripped from the stimulus bill? It's about as subtle.)

*OR*, more likely, is mazama09 is a troll? Perhaps mazama09 is in Hyberbad! {These AMERICANs are MORONS! I have been fooling them for YEARS! HI! My name is KEVIN! Can I help you? NO NO NO, I do not like you. I am cutting off your credit. Have a nice day! [You moron.])

When did it become *RACISM* to want to keep your job?

2Truthy said...

Haha, Carrie:)Yep, good one.

Rob Oak recently posted something about how U.S. 'consumers' (don't you wish they'd start calling us citizens or 'people'?) are only supposed to be buying foreign products now!

Read also Oak's post about Grassley, who is dressing down Bill Gates for wanting to hire more H-1Bs (oh, it's a good letter, that magnificent bastard Grassley wrote). So what does Billy Goats do? He pulls the plug on a planned $500 M data center in Iowa, that's what! Oh, the amusement these Dems and Repubs game us with.

Red Oak, YES! This is a cult. A CULT. No joke, their (not only MS but legions of them here) HR people screen against independent thinking (considered to be a threat to "team" spirit) and select for those who posess groupthink/other-identified personalities.

And that culty creature who got sacked from MS? OMG... Don't you just want to tell complete idiots like this to just get the fuck out of here?

It IS a cult. Their moronic HR people screen against any hint of original/independent thinking as this is perceived to threaten the groupthink/other-directed personalities to generate the necessary "team spirit" to worship the hubris soaked overlords. It's Big Brother, alright.

2Truthy said...

"When did it become *RACISM* to want to keep your job?" -Prezdumas

Bingo!

But there is a a whole host of hillbillies and hustlers out there who crave the 'popularity' themselves for calling other people names who don't worship THE ONE world scam. It's Salem Witch hunt meets Hitler's Youth - only Hitler's Youth were sophisticated compared to these inane grifters.

prezdumas: Is this a maschocist willing to have his/her heart ripped out on the Aztec altar?

There really are overtones of some weird sexual pathology in these people. I'm not joking here. Is it some sort of ex-imperial disease? Seriously - in years past I thought this disgusting, cringeing, forgive-me-for-living, whip-your-unworthy-servant-master 'tude was restricted to a certain type of Brit. How did it come to infect our shores? (No, alas, I'm not in Seattle, and cannot bask in Dear Leader's light.)

2T: ...don't you wish they'd start calling us citizens or 'people'...

That's racist.

(P.S. Did you know that the word "lumpenproletariat" is racist?)

(P.P.S. 2T, On the subject of cult-minds, remind me one day to tell you about my interview, years ago, with a Certain Company (not MSFT). I think it will amuse you.)

There appear to be at least 2 factions out there.

1. The "GO FOR BLOOD fuck the monkey-eaters let’s string them up by their turbans -- America first and last" Crowd.

2. The "India sucks but the American Dickwad mentality is to blame" Crowd.

While I can appreciate the #2 crowd’s dissatisfaction with the American educational system, their proposal (or what I assume their liberal proposal would be) to pour more billions into “education,” is ridiculous. Throwing money at the problem solves nothing. It’s our entire FRIVOLOUS culture that’s to blame, run by Hollywood. And Hollywood Lite (Madison Avenue, my peeps). Money helps. But the drive, the desire must come from within. We in America have extinguished that desire with our latest fetish--mulitculturalism.

The rest of the world AGGRESSIVELY pursues progress and scientific advancement, schooling their men--and ONLY their men--to be the shock troop vanguard of their tech invasion of America.

Meanwhile, the feckless, seatbelt-wearing, bike helmet-affixing, recycling, pollution controlling, global warming whining, birth controlling Americans desire only to run naked in a pleasant meadow with their next-door neighbor’s spouse.

This is why, even if it appears strident and racist and over-the-top, the #1 crowd deserves a fair hearing. Southpark is crude and vulgar. But it is often instructive.

I guarantee you, there are NO Diversity Seminars in India or China. What America needs now is its OWN brand of scientific "madrassah" to focus the nation's attention on this growing intellectual deficit, as Kennedy once did with the space program in the 60s as a counterpoint to Soviet expansion and aggression.

Back to work . . .

Or, whatever.

Red Oak,

Beaver Theodosakis knows that the mind-meld is on for conditioning Society to SERVICE or work for the Economy, and not the other way around.

Chop Chop, Old Sport! Assume the position and don't forget you must als purchase the uniform, (sans the pants.) This is war, baby, Think I'm kidding?

From the NY Times:


“We do try to give things a street appeal,” said Beaver Theodosakis, the founder of prAna, one of the largest yogacentric outfitters.

Good point, Mel. I had that epiphany about a year ago when I decided to start listening to the "strident" and "racist" and "over-the-top". We are supposed to shrink away with horror from these loudmouths, but I realized that a lot of these people are the only ones with the guts to say it like it is. Time to listen to the message rather than the messenger sort of thing.

Yeah, but it looks like an armed re-conquest of our scientific madrassahs might be needed first, as our universities have been completely compromised and are crawling with the zombie armies of the diversi-droids. Don't know if there's a peaceful way to root out the academic-industrial muckety-mucks who think it's the mission of publicly-subsidized American universities to train the rest of the world while pricing out America's young, either.

2Truthy said...

Red Oak, I would LOVE to hear about your interview adventure (HP??)

Thanks for bringing attention to Cooper's important point about the "Lumpenproletariat" being created and the idiotic, illiterate comment(er) in response.

Cooper raised one of the most true and telling realities of what this whole cheap foreign worker scam is all about:

"Among the charges is the claim that technology companies are less keen on hiring hard-to-fill spots than on creating a cyber lumpenproletariat willing to work for cheaper wages."

I know people who are going through this as we speak. As I have written, this is the "Burnt Fries" syndrome - you prefer them not because they taste good but because you get more of them!" Who needs quality, anyway? It's so overrated and cuts into somebody's profits...

Mel,

Yeah, blaming the percentage of kids who are really shop class material for not contributing to America's college demographic is a cheap shot. The #2 crowd is focused on the half empty glass end of the glass -- first, they refuse to admit that this corrupt system stacked the deck against them twenty years plus ago by kicking computer scientists to the curb, thus, discouraging future enrollment in science programs.

But where the U.S. public school system may lack at producing a 100%fleet of college bound, K-12 intellectual dynamos, we more than kick the "World's" ass when it comes to Higher Education. Our universities are, quite literally, the envy of the world.

CC, I agree. The #1 crowd, DOES have the message but IMO could take a few lessons from, say, Leon Phelps (Tim Meadows of "Ladie's Man" fame) and chill out with the 'Us vs. Them' perspective. It backfires. It's polarizing and politically defeating, unlike the message of ohm and unity;)

Or take South Park. Those little shits on South Park (I'm a major fan) can pull off communicating a message without offending and/or alienating their audience because they are fucking cartoon characters who lampoon 'issues'and politically correct 'sentiments'.

Wow WerkIT! Beaver has a tidy business, eh? When I used to tackle yoga classes in college, we wore baggy sweats. Now, if you don't have the right duds you look retarded.

2Truthy said...

Yeah prez, the politically correct crowd which is unable to see the big picture says "hey, sure they ("Kevin" in Hyderabad) can lie to you about their names, screw you out of jobs etc. because they are owed it; Global Corporate Elites, Inc. are in charge, and the kewl kids want to emulate them because they have the Hollywood and Bollywood mojo.

Red Oak said...

2T: Years ago, when I returned to my beloved country after several years of working overseas (blissfully unaware at the time that it was being sold out from under me), I jumped off the plane and started broadcasting my resumé through various channels, eager for new and challenging work. I quickly received a call for an interview from a company I wasn't familiar with, but I figured there was no harm in checking them out, so off I went to the appointment.

It turned out to be one of those interviews where, as soon as you walk in the door, the vibes tell you that you ain't a fit for them, and they sure as hell ain't a fit for you. Under such circumstances, one can either

1) Shake hands and say "Hey, let's not waste time with the bullshit. Nice to meet ya, see ya", or

2) Just use the experience to polish up your interview mojo, and maybe glean some useful information, or

3) Hey, the morning's shot anyway, so why not just kick back and mess with their heads.

I chose a combination of 2) and 3), and was ushered into a room with some folks sitting around a large conference table, all but one of whom were obviously HR types (i.e., hip and perky and not a clue in hell what the position they were recruiting for was all about). All I knew about them was that they were ostensibly looking for somebody with my skills, and all they seemed to show any interest in was my "experience with diversity". And by "interested", I don't mean the way sane, thinking employers are interested (viz., "traveled, multilingual sort with some knowledge of the way the world and people actually tick might be useful"), but the way crazy people who recruit Global Citizens(tm) are interested. (That is, in traveled, multilingual people who are dedicated to believing nonsense about the way the world and the people in it actually do tick.)

After some dull inquiry into how my experience might have contributed to my understanding of and appreciation for the glories of multiculturalism, they got around to a question that was obviously meant to elicit an enthusiastic recitation of "War is peace! Freedom is slavery! Diversity is our strength!" But instead of supplying the correct answer, I figured I'd just tell 'em the truth, which came out something like this:

"Well, one thing that really fascinated me was how serenely and unreflectively racist other cultures are. I guess I'd lived a rather sheltered life, in a milieu where that sort of thing is considered immoral, not to say vulgar, so it was a great learning experience to be the object of racial animus both subtle and overt, and to live among people who consider racism, and even more so ethnic nepotism, not only natural but good and proper. Human beings are really so tribal, eh? It's just so interesting to learn that "anti-racism", and considering nepotism unethical, are really such culturally and temporally limited notions, don't ya think? Not that I didn't have a great time and make good friends [which is true], but it's a funny old world out there, ain't it? Americans of a certain class tend to be soooo naïve about these things, don't we?"

Ah, it was lovely. I thought at the time, as I surveyed the widened eyes, pinched nostrils, pressed lips, and clenched sphincters arrayed around that conference table, that this one moment of pure comic joy just might be worth the fate of the homeless unemployed derelict that awaited me if I kept this up.

After a few very long milliseconds the group simultaneously collected themselves, erased the previous couple of minutes from their brain tapes, and robotically finished up the interview and showed me the door.

But that's not the best part. The company, as it turned out? Well, let's just say they were in the top tier of those fine corporations engaged in vending "the best and the brightest" with "specialized skills" to other fine corporations. What the hell they wanted with me, I do not know. My guess is that both my surname and given name, while 100% British Isles-derived pasty white-guy names, are very uncommon in the U.S. - all my life other Americans have been asking me "What kind of name is that?" - and could easily be taken for "exotic". I wonder if that unpleasant vibe I got from Miss HR Hipster Perkitude as soon as I walked in and introduced myself was a product of a "Shit! You're American! I fucked up!" script running through her head at the moment.

Anyway, I crack up everytime I think of that interview, and myself in that situation. Hope it amused you, too.

Dear Nigel,

I mean . . . Red Oak! I absolutely loved your most recent commentary. I didn't think there was anyone like you left here in the States. Most of the people I can converse with like this are still happy ex-pats in half a dozen countries where, to this day, the natives express the same virulent racism and ethnic arrogance you speak of.

I mean, even a "sweet, loving, happy" Thai woman will cut off your balls with a rusty spoon if she suspects you of insulting King Bhumibol, Buddhism or Thailand in general.

I have never, ever been a blind flag-waver for America, but if someone here doesn't start hoisting it up the flagpole fast, the rest of the world will soon be wiping their asses with it.

Thank you Reginald, I mean Red Oak, for your thoughtful essay!!

Red Oak,

Well Done! I'd have loved to be a fly on that wall. Your deluxe Liar's Poker reverse treatment of these "I'm a Pepper" HR windbags of the very familiar ACG/Bain persuasion is a keeper! And so, so true. I loved the part where you get to the word "tribal". Oh, this is good:)

I can also identify with your shock as it were to come back here to the stark reality of the place being looted, dumbed down and co-opted.

Being American born with dual EU/American citizenship, I have spent the most time in England, Ireland and the City of Light and the thing that has always impressed me in each of these countries - particularly from my earliest memories as a young child -- was/is the strong sense of community pride and a sense of "us." There is an unspoken, powerful bond that demands attention and recognition of and from one another, which explains why Europeans have stuff like (shock) nationalized health care, to name one example: my aunts in London and Ireland receive terrific and timely medical care for what would be considered "high risk, expensive" surgeries and attention. The thought of debating whether or not healthcare is a "right" would be unheard of.
(Mel's visual of the Thai woman with the rusty spoon comes to mind here.)

In this country, there is no collective sense of "us" or "we" because the primitive, "tribal" imperative of taking care of and looking out for one's "own"- is discouraged and worse, taboo. The Old Colonial Masters know how to divide and conquer, and this sorry ass lot of American One World Fundamentalists eat it up like communion wafers. Hence the Kool-Aid drinkers, the foot soldiers of One World America's assault on anyone as "racist" who would dare to want to respect and value community, expressly, the utility of it. For them, no priority upon the utility of the dreaded, local community is allowed, as it clashes with the ideological "unity" theme which has worked out so well for these looting, elitist bastards in these United States of Goldm$n Sach$.

Citizen Carrie said...

Red Oak, thanks for sharing your great interviewing story with us. That part about the energy leaving the room as soon as you walked in is so true. I know a couple of perpetual grad school kids who are anthropology majors, and they despair of ever finding jobs in their field. I think they may be closer to lucrative careers than they realize.
