Kerry introduces law to bring Muslim workers to U.S.

Kerry introduced a bill calling for a three-year pilot programme to draw such workers from Muslim-majority countries to be picked by the US State Department. “This legislation is designed to help build professional capacity, strengthen civil society, and improve ties between the United States and Muslim-majority countries,” he said in a statement. These citizens picked would be 21-40 years old and could also come from civil society, including journalists, leaders of religious-based organisations, or employees of nonprofit organisations, Kerry’s office said in a statement.

[...]

The International Professional Exchange Act of 2010…

Under the proposed legislation, the US Secretary of State is authorised to establish a three year pilot program to help build professional capacity and contribute professional skills to local communities through a two-way exchange of fellows between the United States and select Muslim-majority countries.

    It doesn’t actually define who comes here by religion. It says they have to come from “Muslim majority” countries, not that the individuals have to be Muslim.

    In practice, of course, that’s what would happen.

    But the way it’s written, it would probably survive a court challenge.

    In practice, this would probably end up being a way for American Muslims to get a government-provided trip back home:

    (c) Language- The Program is not intended to teach fellows professional competency in the working language of the country in which fellows are placed. Fellows should possess a working level knowledge of the language needed for professional placement before the placement is made. The Program shall provide refresher language training for fellowship placement, as needed.

    There aren’t that many non-Muslims in the US who have the required language skills, outside of the military and intelligence community.

    To the tune of “Home on the Range”:

    Oh, give me a home
    Because I want to own
    It should not matter that I can’t pay
    I make a paltry wage
    So forgive my mortgage
    And make my crushing debt go away

    Homes now are arranged
    So the solvent taxpayers will pay
    For the improvident
    Who both borrowed and lent
    And the Democrats buy votes this way

    (B) civil society, including journalists, faith-based leaders, interfaith leaders, and those working in nonprofit organizations.

    All the 9-11 jihadis were upper middle class well educated muzz scum. Look how lurch is trying to get that type of demographics, age 21-40, and hope for the best?
    Just introduce a bill calling for terrorists and be done with it.
    Why play around pretending we would get anything but that in such an appeal for muzz.

    It is lunacy how these prog idiots are bending over backwards to act like muzz still deserve to be held in high esteem, after all they have done.
    No one is committing terrorism but the muzz.

    Our elected officials are actively trying to get us killed.

    Some money preserving reasons to own a bit of silver:

    The supply-and-demand dynamic for silver looks even better right now than for any other metal, including gold and platinum, because more and more industries want silver, but fewer mines are producing it

    Maybe you’ve heard, however, that the huge rise in digital photography spells doom for silver demand. Not so. In fact, only 8% of world silver demand ever came from the photography market

    What many amateur investors don’t realize is that silver is one of the best electrical conductors in the world. But it doesn’t corrode like other metals. Virtually all modern electrical switches, from batteries to computer circuit boards, use silver-based solder

    That means you need silver to make digital cameras. And iPods. And laptop computers. Not to mention dishwashers, microwaves, televisions, washing machines, refrigerators and more

    The electronics industry alone uses up 44% of all the silver produced each year

    You need silver to make solder for most metal pipes, because it’s also temperature resistant. And smooth. Which has also hiked up silver demand because it’s an excellent lubricant for jet engines

    Silver has anti-bacterial properties too. The water you drink or use to fill your pool was filtered using silver. Silver is used to help process almost all pre-packaged food, too

    The $300 billion plastics industry couldn’t exist without silver. It’s the perfect chemical catalyst. You use it to make everything from adhesives and heat-resistant surfaces to toys, car parts and more

    Even the U.S. Mint churned through 15.5 million ounces of silver in the most recent year on record, to make coins and medals. We haven’t even touched on jewelry demand, which sucks up another 30% of the total annual silver production.

    AND it can’t be printed up.

    I dunno. I got the info from an article. I do know that silver is specified as money in the Constitution. This “everything for free” policy that the Obama administration is advocating will inflate the prices of everything you need. Some of those things you can stockpile, some you cannot. Precious metals are insurance against the greed of government. Or, you could just let FLOTUS spend the money for you.

    That’s why gold is used for electrical contacts. Now, the layer is uber thin, and the amount of gold is tiny, but something like a memory DIMM with an edge connection has gold plated contacts on it. Next time you get your hands on a DIMM, notice the nice shiny gold contacts on the edge.

    True story: during WWII, Kaiser Aluminum needed to build an aluminum mill in Tacoma, WA to make aluminum for Boeing. There wasn’t enough copper or aluminum to go around, so the US treasury loaned out silver to them to use in their pot line buss bars. All through the war, and a few years afterward, they had silver bars with 300 volts and a few hundred amps going through them. Eventually, they made enough aluminum, and replaced the silver with Al bars, and returned the silver to the treasury.

    They weren’t that worried about somebody trying to jack some of the silver as long as the juice was on.

    That’s interesting that you worked at a refinery. At $18/ounce, almost everyone can afford to have some silver. My understanding is that current silver production does not meet world demand. Another nice thing about silver is that it is pretty liquid, though you do pay a premium to buy and a premium to sell. Even so, if you hold it for a couple of years, it’s likely to do better than a CD and DEFINITELY better than a treasury bill.

    The Chinese have openly declared that they do not believe U.S. treasuries are a reliable place for them to invest. They have been diversifying by buying up all kinds of natural resources companies around the planet.

This probably belongs to The Diary of Daedalus here, but I couldn’t help it. I have such a tiny sliver of time–class starts in 20 minutes. Bye for now.

    DF probably sent cato an email begging him to stay.

    Question: What would you recommend for fixed-income retirees at this point? Can’t afford to buy precious metals or stocks in more than tiny amounts, so conventional investing is out.

    Then he went to a Ford assembly plant to brag about the recovery of the auto industry. Ford took no stimulus money!

    And of course that fact will be left out of most MSM stories about the event.

    Or it’ll be in the 18th paragraph.

    I guess it is safe for him to campaign for a criminal in Chicago.
    Most dems running, though don’t want to be anywhere near him.

    He actually tried to get Genulious to drop out when the mob thing broke. But he & Obama are birds of a feather, both tie in to Tony Rezko.

    So cheap Chinese crap gets expensive. That’s as much a good thing as a bad.
    I don’t think the Chinese are in as enviable a position as you think. The have a lot to lose if things get out of hand.

    The Chinese have been careful to enter and exit markets slowly so that they don’t distort the price mechanisms. The U.S. used to manufacture everything it needed. No longer true. That makes the U.S. more dependent on other nations (Think the United Nations if you want to get paranoid). Chinese crap breaks down a lot. Heck, the Federal government could change laws retroactively if it wanted as per Pete Stark’s townhall meeting. Gold was confiscated by FDR. Nothing is for certain. There are just varying degrees of risk tolerance.

    Heavy on the ammo. You can always trade it for food later. Remember what the unofficial currency in the USSR was: cigs. Compact, and always in demand. Since cigs don’t have that same intrinsic value here, ammo’s probably going to be your best bet. Especially if they start restricting sales.

    LOL … that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing, for lack of resources to do anything I could think of that would be better. I’m open to other suggestions, though, if we can afford them.

    When he was in Peoria some months ago, he bragged that he caused a recovery & that ‘Jim” the Caterpillar CEO was going to start rehiring.

    OK, thanks. Don’t have a .22, so none of that, but otherwise I think we’re in pretty decent shape.

    I know I am coming in late on this one, but if you want to know what’s wrong with America today, here’s a good example. This “outreach” crap is just liberal feel-good bullshit. I am literally getting sick to my stomach with Kerry bringing this up on the heels of dealing with Obama’s lies and incompetency on a daily basis. I can’t believe we have to endure two more years of this. That makes this agnostic pray for relief.

    Hey M!
    I’m sorry I have so little time these days. I am trying to finish a book I’m writing, teach four classes, deal with my AS grandson (now almost a teenager) and coping with the news that I have some deadly serious reasons for feeling so very tired. (curable, though, thanks be to God).
    I read the headlines, though, and look at the diary when I get a chance. My classes finish up this Monday. Two weeks before it all starts over again.
