We’ve Seen This Show Before

This won’t end well:

In the coming days, the Trump administration will take steps to delay and ultimately rescind an Obama administration rule allowing foreign entrepreneurs to come to the U.S. to start companies, sources familiar with the situation tell Axios.

Entrepreneurs are going to start their businesses somewhere. What if the next Facebook-level success is Russian instead of American? Or what if Elon Musk had gone to the UK instead of here?

Preznint Stupid really hates immigrants, and he’s determined to remove the US from being a world leader… at anything.

    Phrases that come to mind associated with “conservatives” and “GOP”:
    Whistling past the graveyard
    Cut off your nose to spite your face
    Eating the seed corn
    Robbing Peter [everyone] to pay Paul [themselves]

    I suspect that Trump will institute a ‘pay for play’ scheme to counteract its own policies. Grifters gotta grift, and there’s cream to be skimmed here.

    We already saw some stem-cell researchers decamp to the UK during Bush II’s administration because he discouraged their research (it violated the Christian taboo system).

    Macron is already inviting US scientists discouraged by this administration’s global-warming denialism and general idiocy to come to France and work there.

    Turning away entrepreneurs is just another natural step in, and consequence of, the stupidization of the US. Intelligence and expertise will not go, or remain, where they are disdained. They have too many other options.

    So what badness would have befallen us if Facebook, PayPal and Tesla had incubated outside Los Estados Unidos? Most likely their revenue and profits would have stayed offshore, perhaps. And entrepreneurs certainly need to have our immigration laws and immigration courts act friendlier for their access to our markets rather than current merciful treatment accorded the poor, dispossessed, disenfranchised, wretched fescue (a form of refuse) at your teeming shores; send these the homeless tempest tossed to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door
