    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    The best qualified person should get the job. I am not just talking about a degree because I have seen some with a four year degree that don't have a clue. Can't do simple math. What happened to good old on the job training? Even some high school teens running a cash-register can't figure out if the price is $8.45 and we give them $10.50 without the register telling them how much change to give back. When I was young we didn't have this problem.

    We've become increasingly dependent on technology. If I was a math teacher there would be few times I'd allow students to use a calculator, but there's no way to control how they do their homework.
