But it's not affirmative action, especially since there's a bias against foreign students if anything.

I am talking about pure affirmative action as in :preferential treatment in regards to GRE scores for Asians of certain backgrounds. H1B is a different matter altogether, it is highly detrimental to US workforce and probably in the end to overall economic conditions in the country. H1B displaces American citizens from high paying jobs and replaces them with indentured serfs thus training the workforce to be complacent, obedient and appreciative of lower wages. The obvious monetary benefits of H1B usually transferred to board of directors and VPs and then to complete the cycle to the election campaigns of politicians.

Ask Israel.


Of course why would 2000 miles of mostly unoccupied border be any different than 400

Are you talking about Asians from Asia, or Asian-Americans?

From the stats I remember looking at when I took the GRE, foreign students have higher GRE scores than Americans. It's the only way to stand out among the hordes of foreign students applying, so they spend a lot more time prepping. I've never seen anything about "affirmative action" putting unqualified Asians, or Asian-Americans, into STEM programs.


It's not like qualified Americans are being rejected from STEM grad slots in favor of people from Asia. We're just spending money on educating people that we don't need for the domestic workforce.

Medwed do you have any sources for your facts about Asians? Because everything I've heard is the opposite

So you're on the record as a troll.  Thanks, it's your first honest contribution to the thread.

lol k.


This isn't debate team. I post on stuff that I find interesting enough for me to care about, and not on things that don't. "Comprehensively defending Hillary's record" isn't one of those things. Especially in a thread about Trump.


But hey, Gary Johnson 2016. Have fun with that.

He could have found a better excuse.

 

"it seems inappropriate that I would debate the second-place finisher"

 

Did Trump not know he was in second place earlier in the week?

Curious decision by Donald. What was the downside? Free publicity (not that he's lacking in it), and a chance to bash Hillary for two hours on national TV, if he could get Bernie on the same page. Maybe he decided Bernie was going to go after him instead of Hilldog?


Trump did get a little dig in at the Democratic establishment ("rigging the elections") but that can't have much payoff. Seems like a lost opportunity. Maybe he needs more one on one debate prep.


edit: read some commentary saying that Donald probably didn't want a whole special discussing the policy differences between Trump and Sanders. So it might be less about attacking Hillary and more about trying to play for Berniebros.

The republican establishment might not want the fact that he shares so many planks with Bernie to be advertised on national TV.

Or they don't want to encourage Bernie supporters to go out and vote Hillary as a #nevertrump vote

I examined my life and found myself very women-centric, especially when it comes to having sex with them. Lol
I am not worried, next major war will reset the liberal PC switch in peoples brains.
