Silicon Valley is bitching that our supposed “tech savvy” President isn’t doing enough to promote free market IT businesses.
I have this to say:
= In one portion of the article, IT companies are bitching that the President isn’t removing restrictions to let them send more IT work overseas. Well, boo-fucking-hoo. I’ve always hated this about IT companies – they tout the future but they don’t give a shit about this country or its workers. I automatically went into ignore-IT-complaint mode after that stupid comment.
= Upon reading the comments below the article, here’s what I think. Yes, the article is pretty useless since it’s pretty thin and badly written. Fuck you Conservative morons who think they can use this to continuously run their agenda and attack the President.
= President Obama has done more for advancing technology (especially green and alternative energy tech), promoting education and helping tech start-up companies. So much more than Bush, Bush Sr. and Ronald Reagan (who was very anti-tech, btw).
= Federal government is made of old people. Old people hate technology. Ergo, Congress will never support IT advances as strongly as they should.
