The Shorter Microsoft Warranty

Bryan, Why Now, tells us why we should trust Bill Gates:

Any member of Congress who is tempted to vote for anything based on the testimony of Bill Gates should read a Microsoft warranty¹. After reading that piece of legal prose and having it parsed to explain exactly what it says, the member of Congress should be able to understand how trustworthy Bill Gates isn’t.
Here is Bryan's shorter Microsoft warranty:
Microsoft only guarantees the quality of the media [CD-ROM or DVD] that their products are shipped on. They don’t guarantee that anything will be on the media, and if there is something on the media, they don’t guarantee that it will do anything. If the media is defective, they’ll replace it.
Letting Microsoft hire a bunch on H1-Bs will not change their unwarranty.

Bryan's analysis of high tech unemployment and H1-Bs is correct. Nevertheless, here we do support open borders whether it be Mexican, Indian, Canadian, Cuban,.....

Governments should not be allowed to get in the way of people's voluntary movement or their voluntary exchange of goods.
