we hire a company to inspect approx 3,500 pole per year.

I didn't know that many Polish people visited South Dakota annually.   ;D

It took me awhile to figure that one out.

This might be difficult to believe, but you're not the first person to tell me that.

Hmm  ...  Black Hills perhaps answered Skee's observation about why we have the HB1 visa. Everyone wants the good pay but no one wants to put in the effort.

IBM was outed for failing to hire locals (where there was a good pool of people wanting work) and abusing H1B by cycling through 3 "flights" of H1B hires, rotating them to company housing out of the country until the clock ran down and they could get another one, and rotating in another flight of H1B from said housing.

Microsquish seems to be doing the same thing here. Huge influx of Indian and Pakistani tech works for the last few years. while Amazon seems to be hiring local for their distribution center and working them like dogs.

The City of Redmond where Microsoft is located has virtually transformed itself into a Middle Eastern enclave, which of course means excellent restaurants and beautiful women.... So not really a bad thing, except they drive like shit.

Every American thinks they're worth $200/hr regardless of experience, skills, and attitudes. Or at least "5 times as much as dem ferners!"

Someone working on a visa or recently-naturalized citizens may do a bang up job with a very eager and appreciative attitude for way less.

Businesses would be stupid to not consider the bottom line, EVERY other factor aside.... including place-of-birth loyalty. It's just economics. And boards of directors' wishes. :shrug:

I interpreted it as some far leftist angry at beach goers (because of covid 19) and capitalism. He doesn't see any reason to go to the beach, so why should you? Only shallow capitalists go to the beach.  Be deep and have substance, stay home.

Beaches aren't all that interesting to me, but I can appreciate that some people find them fun.  Fun has it's own inherent reward.  If that guy's for real, he really needs to take a breather.

I really enjoy the beach.

That's my happy place, that and driving on the beach, not at the same time though.

I only like interesting beaches.  Sitting in the sand with the sun blaring on me has zero appeal.  I like rocky beaches with massive trees washed up on them.  I like big surf like Wiamea in the winter.  I liked Shi Shi beach cuz you had to work to get there AND it was super interesting.  I liked the beach on the lake at painted rock nat'l lakeshore because there were waves...on a lake. 

The idea of a bunch of barely clothed people who should really be wearing clothes covered in oil and sand in very close proximity to one another for no apparent reason just baffles me.  And ew.

That's kinda how I see it--if I'm gonna sit there and not do anything, I can be far more comfortable in the easy chair in my study than at a beach.  But the beachy people I know only want to lay in the sun and get skin cancer.  I prefer something to do, but nobody I know wants to actually do anything while at the beach. 

But as I prefaced my earlier comment, I do appreciate that folks get enjoyment out of things that don't entice me.  And the beachy people I know don't ride motorcycles, so the feelings are reciprocated.

The beaches here are cold and windy with Northern Pacific water temps averaging around 50*. Toss in the riptides and rolling logs etc and nobody with any sense is going in there. Nice to look at though. When I was homeported in Norfolk we used to go to Virginia Beach and do the sun tan / chase women thing though, a pleasant enough way to spend the day ….   ;)

OK, I admit this theory is a hoax.   They were actually sent by Papa,

We have giant hornets around here and have for as long as I can remember. They're big dumb fuckers but very docile and mellow. About the size of your thumb and loud. They come in the garage during summer at night and fly into the fluorescent light bulbs....DINK>>>>>DINK>>>>>>>DINK. I was sitting outside smoking a stogie and one landed on my thigh. Scared the shit outta me. That sucker had more mass than any insect I've ever felt. it crawled around for 10-20 seconds (seemed like an hour-I'm allergic) and flew off into the darkness.

In reality it's just an Agriculture department experiment to rid us of the killer bees that have been menacing since the late '70s.

A conspiracy to orchestrate defenestration doesn't make sense in a oligarchical system.  Why would a poltical administration facilitate the removal of scientific leadership during a pandemic?  Not because medicine isn't a true science?  That doesn't make sense.  O, wait!   Nevermind.

The fatal shooting of a Chinese-born coronavirus researcher on US soil has fuelled conspiracy theories around the world.
Bing Liu, a 37-year-old assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, was found dead in his house on Saturday.
Colleagues said he was close to making "significant findings" on his studies of Covid-19, sparking online speculation it was an assassination.
But police say it was a murder-suicide.

In a statement, Liu's colleagues describe him as an outstanding researcher who "was on the verge of making very significant findings" towards understanding the cellular mechanisms of Covid-19 infection.

"Oh my god," a user on the Chinese social media platform Weibo wrote. "This seems like coming straight out of Mission Impossible. Perhaps he found out that the virus originated from an American lab."
Many similar comments suggested Liu was killed because he was supposedly about to unravel the mystery of coronavirus' origin.
Chinese officials and state media had previously promoted a baseless claim that the virus originated in the US and was brought to Wuhan by American soldiers.
Some Weibo users said the case "seems too coincidental".
"A very unusual case. There are likely secrets hidden in the dark," one remark read.

During this pandemic the US military released video of encounters with UFO'S ,that few took notice of. Was the world wide stay at home order a way to keep everyone indoors away from more remote areas where the first landings of the new world masters were taking place??

I think I remember that episode. "To Serve Man", right?

COVID-19 transmission could be prevented by mouthwash, study suggests.

Conspiracy Theorists Have a Fundamental Cognitive Problem

Quote
But as scientists report in a 2017 paper published in the European Journal of Social Psychology, sometimes people sense danger even when there is no pattern to recognize — and so their brains create their own. This phenomenon, called illusory pattern perception, they write, is what drives people who believe in conspiracy theories, like climate change deniers, 9/11 truthers, and “Pizzagate” believers.

The study is especially timely; recent polls suggest that nearly 50 percent of ordinary, non-pathological Americans believe in at least one conspiracy theory.

Hey, so like believing this stuff is normal!

Anyone notice how Subway shops are all over the place? At just about every gas station and truck stop along all major interstate routes. And Bill Gates owns a share in Subway, just think how easy it would be to spread a virus using Subway, with virus containing microchips embedded in the bread. All you would need would be a electronic satellite pulse to activate the microchips and release the virus.

Interestingly enough, no one I know eats Subway, and no one has the corona, coincidence?

They have inexplicably just removed Roast Beef and Rotisserie Chicken from the menu. Very suspicious.

Now that you point it out, there used to be subway near here, but it closed, and now Covid cases are decreasing in our area.

What kind of sandwich shop doesn't have roast beef? it's downright un American. Combined with Skee's evidence below I think we can move this from the "Theory" side to the "definite possibility side".....

Switch to grilled and seasoned tofu. It's better for you anyway.

My gal has a scoop of this in her smoothie most mornings:

I think she was unaware of Soylent Green. 
Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.
