I don’t think I’m hypocritical.

I absolutely disagree with infidelity, and homosexuality. All those destroy society and it’s moral fiber.


What about two straight single ppl (neither party is married), having sex, but being criminalized by statute because there's money involved?

Your honor, I have not had sex with a woman, within the United States of America.

I only fuck hoes, of consenting age, up in Montreal and other International locations.

exploitation of young men and women as sex slaves by business


Then you really don't know women very well. Many of them simply want a guy to pay their bills. And a business is simply getting a sole proprietorship or partnership. That's not exploitation, it's capitalism.

Or are you a communist and anti-business?

How can you blame liberals when you, yourself, a conservative, want the govt in straight ppl's bedroom?

If murder or suicide was legal


Oh, now a crime which actually hurts someone vs two heterosexual adults having sex, is equivalent for you.

FortWayne says
Because prostitution once legalized, leads to exploitation.


No, because one can toss pimps in jail and then, let the sole proprietors and partnerships contract with fellow adults, like adults.

FortWayne says
I'm merely explaining the underlying reasons for this. The society banned this practice, because prostitution has hurt many people and therefore was banned for those reasons. It is not illegal to have sex. It is illegal to exploit people for sex. Prostitution is exploitation, hence banned.


Ok, but it appears that our peer Anglo-Saxon nations (Australia, Britain, New Zealand, Canada) allow this and yes, they toss the scumbag pimps in jail, and they appear to be just as first world as Uncle Sam.

In reality, it's about religion.

This is called kidnapping and is illegal not only in the USA but also, in our peer Anglo-Saxon nations.

And in Canada, the Mounties go berserk on child exploitation.

There will be lot of tourist to Canada this year. They shutdown backpage, usasexguide , and rubmaps n craigslist hi sections.


Nah, American men are too pussywhipped to make the road trip.

The ones who're already in the know, have been doing so for years. Think of Detroit metro's proximity to Windsor ON, or Buffalo NY location circa Toronto, or Boston/New England to Montreal.

And given Seattle's rates of depression, I doubt that any of those Amazon/Microsoft bozos even know where Vancouver is.

Order "Omakase" from a top tier Japanese place, $200/plate, and make sure that you get some wagyu beef portions, in addendum to the mixed seafoods.

And believe me, wagyu needs no sauce period! It simply melts in your mouth like butter.

Does Christianity claim that LEGAL PROSTITUTION is sinful? Where?


The Denomination of Fort Wayne, Oliver Cromwell, and the New England Puritans.

This is encapsulated by the Animal's "House of the Rising Sun"

---Oh mother tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Spend your lives in sin and misery
In the House of the Rising Sun---

In other words, work hard, save money, get married, have kids, and don't go to whorehouses, esp ones in New Orleans with a flag of the Rising Sun.

Now, just replace "New Orleans" with Bangkok, Amsterdam, or Rio to help modernize the song.

Patrick says
a lot of H1B visa holders are doing jobs that millions of Americans could easily do, like manual QA testing.


For many such jobs, the goal is to get either a university student or an H1-B, aka cheap labor. The idea of having a professional class for IT or engineers (see layoffs at places like DuPont, etc) is anathema so really, it's a wonder why more STEM types don't opt for health care like nursing, physician's assistant or just plain MD/medical school. By now, since it's no longer 1998 (where ppl could claim ignorance of reality) but 2018, everyone should already know this.

Another variation of the same is companies giving small amounts of money to universities to perform research that companies need; the net result is that this research is done by a student/postdoc who gets paid 30K and not by company employed PhD scientist earning 120K. It also cuts down on positions that company needs thus resulting in less job opportunities by students.


Yes, that started a whole generation ago but at least it wasn't a fully scalable solution so places like DuPont, Dow, Johnson & Johnson, etc, still needed corporate R&D depts to keep themselves going.

Today, it's either sending the entire lab to Asia-Pacific or H1B/students stateside.

Let the Americans go to nursing school. If you notice, Urgent Care clinics are popping up everywhere.

to other countries such as Canada


Not a problem because places like Toronto have the highest amount of cabbies, who have advanced degrees. If anything, the sheer number of educated ppl in Canada, has not generated a job market like the ones in the mid-Atlantic or the Texas triangle.

Why do you think it's so easy to get a hoe, who'd studied at the University of Montreal, looking for a sugar daddy, while she works on that great Canadian novel? It's because no one wants to be a secretary there, work as a pharmacy tech, or at a restaurant.

Quigley says
Look; the solution is FCKING SIMPLE! Mandate a $120k salary to H1B visa holders and the problem of companies using them to undercut the labor market goes away!


I have an idea ... let's start with a typical physician's assistant salary & move from there.

https://www1.salary.com/MA/Boston/Physician-Assistant-Medical-Salary.html

It's ~$116K/yr in Greater Boston, and use that, as a starting point for H1-B tech careers. We'll need to come up with a working average, which can react to the various urban markets out there.

BTW, that's not too far from your ~$120K/yr target and what it does, since we know that American citizens want health care careers with stability/long term prospects, the PA is the best way to gauge if we keep salaries competitive enough, that enough Americans will choose STEM over health care careers.

On a more sardonic note ... it's hard to believe that anyone would choose a field, like being a biosciences (or any science/engineering) postdoc, at $40K/yr, over a heath care profession, having had to do twice the avg schoolwork as a typical PA.

We need to stop outsource houses from using most of the H1Bs, and keep H1Bs for jobs that really need qualified people that aren't available.


Agreed.

ThreeBays says
There are not millions of Americans ready to take tech jobs. Tech industry is adding nearly 200,000 jobs per year. US is producing only ~8k EE and 13k CS engineering non-foreign grads a year.


Chicken or egg situation ... all EE/CS American grads start with zero experience sans let's say a summer/fall co-op at let's say Lawrence Livermore or Qualcomm, if they're among the lucky applicants.

With that stated, there are in fact, many older Americans ready for those jobs.

Even on this forum, the cat fan, zzyzzx, was once an experienced EE, and was driven out of his profession via a mix of offshoring & automation. He's not interested in coming back, just to go through that all over again.

And for me, I was in applied chemistry/chemical engineering and had left those areas for one, IT, and then later, hedge fund activities. That latter move made me several millions so I'm a 100% sure I won't be returning, even if Applied Materials begged me.

And likewise, if you scour the land, you'll find many Americans with STEM backgrounds, who'd left the tech sector for finance, health care, real estate, management consulting, and other less offshorable (plus downwardly mobile) activities during the span of their early careers. The reality of the situation is that if STEM compensations were like physician assistants, while attempting to maintain a high level of employment, (w/o continuous layoffs) we would never have created this post-STEM diaspora. Realize, many STEM grads are smart, and the expression, 'Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.' applies here.

Health professions are good for now, but I think they will crash and burn soon because medical price increases are simply too high. "Medical tourism" will kill dental, ophthalmology, etc.


If I remember my earlier years, this was something which STEM students would tell each other, to make themselves feel good whenever there's a layoff round.

In reality, medical tourism will eliminate the $500K/yr surgeons and anesthesiologists.

For a PA, going from let's say a perky $115K/yr down to perhaps, $80K/yr, is not the end of the world. And Urgent Care clinics are in greater demand and the need for locally provided internal medicine is only going up.

So let's say a PA works ten years at $100K/yr, then gets booted down to $80K/yr, that's still 20 years totally $1.8M.

For a ChemE, it's 7 yrs x $75K/yr and then, the following 13 yrs from underemployment/contract work at let's say $75K/yr but only working at 8 years average, due to all the re-sizings, makes his 20 year career only $1.1M.

As an American and having to do it over again, I'd choose the PA route, if I didn't nail the MCAT.

Have not been there, but as long as you have money Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth are supposed to be outstanding.


Perth is the most far away city at the far end of a desert. Pretty much, to get from there to anywhere else, you'll need a plane.

The places which are more geographically connected are Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane, basically the southeast and the east coast.

If I were a wine person, Adelaide would be it but since I'd grown up in Boston, the places closest to that would be Melbourne & Sydney.

as transparent as those airline seat pocket magazine ads for "affluent" dating services. These ads target hot young women looking for older rich men and vice versa.


It's certainly transparent but did you see some of those so-called 'hotties' in that video clip? They're at best, average! ... mainly washed up bitches in their late 30s who were riding too much cock during their 20s but didn't settle down with a decent guy back then.

Seriously, I'd been at conferences, universities, & institutes all over the northeast and other parts of the country and many women there were a lot better looking and yes, many of them even had MDs, MPHs, MAs, etc, and yes, the average (ahem) conversation wasn't .."valued added .." and fill in the rest of the b-school bullshit to appear to be business savvy.

These guys in Silicon Valley have got to be the biggest cucks of all time. They don't understand the value of $500K and the use of one's ... yes ... one's free time.

At least the regular east coast white collar professional, making a mere $100K-$200K, can get a woman w/o putting his portfolio into the furnace.

You are assuming that in most big corps IT knows how to code.


And yet, another reason for a business analyst to learn some coding skills.

I think it's safe to say that those who're presently in the white collar world, probably do need to learn some level of coding, to help expedite their work.

For newcomers, like the kids in the 6th grade, that ship has already sailed w/ the prior generation.

Silly Con valley and SF must have the worst male to female ratio I've ever witnessed in the country. So the girls over there have a literal pick of the litter when it comes to guys since it's like 10 to 1 in some neighborhoods.

So I see a lot of women who MIGHT rate a "6-7" being treated, wined and dined like they are top tier 10's. It's sad.


All true but basic game and an anti feminist confident anti sjw attitude still gets you plenty prime pussy. There's no natural game in SV only soyboy money and many womyn ironically are starving for men. Still if you're going to settle American I recommend the mid west.


When you're an actual millionaire .. this is the game, "Whatever ... I'll be banging a hot French-Canadian with big tits, in a few hours. Better get your act together if you want to hang with me"

This is in a way, a variant of the Beatles ...
