it's “Everywhere you want to be”

Last year 85,000 American jobs were lost to H-1Bs visas.

The H-1Bs visa is an approval to work in this country by someone with a specialized skill like a software engineer.

But the visa is being used as a cynical work-around,
to take jobs to other countries.

Consider California Pacific Gas and Electric.

First, they use the visa to bring in new immigrants.

American workers are threatened with layoff
 unless they train the new immigrants. 

So they do.

The immigrants are then sent back to India to train locals 
so the jobs can be eventually outsourced.

And then the American workers get laid off anyway.

must be nurture, not nature

Remember Jerry Sandusky?

He was the Penn State assistant football coach convicted of getting a bit too close to his players.

A jury convicted Sandusky in 2012 of an unimaginable 45 different counts of child sexual abuse.

Jerry will be out in 30 years when he is 98 years old.

Jeffrey Sandusky, age 41, is his son.

Jeffrey picked up where his Father left off.

Pennsylvania Police arrested the son on fourteen new counts of child sexual abuse charges including,

 “sexual assault, 
involuntary deviate sexual intercourse,
 two counts each of photographing or depicting
 sexual acts with a child.”

1966 was happier

Wouldn’t it be nice if we were older?
Then we wouldn't have to wait so long.

And wouldn't it be nice to live together
In the kind of world where we belong.

You know its gonna make it that much better
When we can say goodnight and stay together.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could wake up
In the morning when the day is new.

And after having spent the day together
Hold each other close the whole night through

The happy times together we've been spending
I wish that every kiss was never ending…

Wouldn't it be nice?

Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray...
 it might come true
Baby, then there wouldn't be a single thing
 we couldn't do.

We could be married (we could be married) 
and then we'd be happy, (and then we’d be happy.)

Wouldn't it be nice?

You know it seems the more we talk about it.
It only makes it worse to live without it,
But let's talk about it...

Wouldn't it be nice?
