Two interesting articles Obj, each with merit.

Am I correct in sensing a cognitive dissonance between them?

One is mad we bring in foreign IT folks, the second suggests outsourcing.  How would the IT engineers feel if the proffered solution for their industry were to outsource to China and India?

Crafty,

Not exactly.  The two articles are somewhat in accord, in the sense that Coulter is suggesting we buy the END PRODUCT (food) from other countries, if that's where it can be most efficiently produced, and the other is arguing that if a company is going to EMPLOY workers in this country - they need to be citizens, and not imported foreign nationals.

Mmm , , , , dunno about that.  Ultimately either way the logic leads to paying the cheap labor in its country of origin-- which will happen at least some of the time with IT if the labor is blocked from coming here.   I'm not taking sides here, I am assessing the logic.
