    so I'm somewhat sympathetic to where you're coming from.  Although I've worked with some really bright people who got to the USA under these visas, and I do think that keeping those people here as immigrants is a good thing for the US on the balance.  Certainly, here they work for something like a US wage.  If they go back to their home countries and start businesses (as some of my friends have done), they can still get your job, and the people working for them make much, much less than they do in the US.

    My first thought on this was, well, at least that idiot Allen has figured out that pissing off Indian Americans is a bad business.  No more Macaca for Clueless George, at least this time.

      and I was struck by how many times Allen mentioned India and Indian-American students in a positive light.  He's clearly trying to reverse-macaca this time.
