Dear John, we don’t need your skills and who cares if you are a veteran?

yet another one bites the dust.

Careful consideration?

That would require interviewing me to see what I can do, which you haven’t.

Thank you for your interest in joining the mission to serve our military and their families with Operation Homefront.  After careful consideration, we are unable to offer you a position at this time.

Please continue to check our career site and apply for positions that are suitable for your particular skills and experience.

Again, we would like to express our appreciation for the time and effort you devoted to seeking employment with Operation Homefront.    We wish you every personal and professional success with your job search.

Best regards,

Human Resources, Operation Homefront

We will NOT pay you unemployment even though our policies as a country forced you into unemployment for six years

It would seem that I qualify for unemployment, but they will not pay me because I was unemployed for the previous 5 years which means I didn’t pay enough in to earn it.

Folks, I did NOT:

  1. Send my job to another country, our federal government made that possible.
  2. Import non-immigrant guest workers on H-1B visas to take my job, our federal government sold those Hunting Licenses to companies that do not want to hire Americans in America.

Call Dori Henry at the Department of Labor and see if Ammar Campa-Najjar is a government employee like he says he is

Ammar Campa-Najjar, the Hispanic-Arab American son of immigrants who was born in San Diego, works for the U.S. government in Washington.

See where he claims he works for the U.S. Government?

Here is their employee roster for the position he says he fills on his resume.

I don’t see his name, do you?

This lady appears to be the one in charge.

Call her and ask her if he is an employee.

If he is not, ask her for a copy of the bid where he was awarded the contract to represent them after competing against other bidders.

And send me proof to

Why am I being so damned critical of this guy?

Here is his resume.

Obviously he must have the ear of Secretary Thomas Perez.

And he knows full well about immigrant guest worker programs who are not immigrants at all as the guest worker program is a non-immigrant visa.

See that part about workforce training programs?

Yeah, I participated in the VRAP program and he knows I did, but I am still unemployed while he is posting articles in the Washington Post when the Washington Post won’t give Displaced American Software Developers the same space to explain what is really happening here in America which makes me wonder, what are they hiding?

Oh I see, he is using his position that was given to him by Obama to pitch stories in top tier national and local publications.

Yet he will not tell about the Americans that have been displaced by those initiatives that he is running with?

I could go on and on, but what is the use.

I stated above that he knows full well about me and my situation, and I am still THE Displaced American while he is still pretending to be a government employee.

We in the military have a name for that.

I believe it is Stolen Valor if memory serves me correctly.

What follows is an email exchange we recently had, so don’t even try to cover this one up Obama, Perez and Ammar Campa-Najjar. because the Washington Post is NOT going to cover your butt this time.

Nothing against you and you seem like a nice guy, but this is why we don’t see things the same way.
Case in point, you wrote this:
Think about it, we are the only civilization on earth ever to be founded on this defiant worldview: that our individual differences don’t outweigh our common humanity. In many ways, America is still ahead of its time.
Yet this is how I see it, and probably how art sees it, and yes I realize that we are all a product of our environment
life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement” regardless of social class or circumstances of birth
But if I can get the powers that be to put me to work straightening out this mess in washington dc that puts foreign born non-immigrant guest workers from india ahead of native born Americans like myself and naturalized citizens like yourself, then hell yeah, I will meet you and if I am working, it will be my treat

We need jobs.

I have over 30 years of technology experience where I have worn all hats in software from developer to project manager.
I have now been unemployed for nearly six years and I have not had steady work since 2003.
Art is one of the best programmers I have ever worked with and he too is experiencing the same things I am.
There are millions of us.
If you truly want to help, study the charts on this page and get me in touch with those that can put us back to work or use this material to convince them yourself.
I will convince them what really is happening if you want me too.
By them, I am referring to Trump, Sessions, Obama.
People at that level.
We are being destroyed out here.
When we get forced out of software, nobody at the lower levels will hire us as we are overqualified and we’ve made too much money in the past and we won’t stay.
Whether it is age discrimination, caste, or we simply have more people than we do jobs, I do not know, but the “foreign born” and “native born” charts support my statement.
But I want to work as does Art, and we have the best skills out there.
Since you are representing the DOL, look up the VRAP program.
I am a graduate of that as well, and the DOL and the VA promised Employment Assistance yet none was offered as their employment assistance is to forward me to the Texas Workforce Commission who is as worthless as teats on a boar hog.
Texas Workforce Commission approved me for unemployment assistance.
The only thing I have left to my name is my land that I am buying with payments of $625.00 per month which I hoped I would be able to hold on until I get social security at 65, but I now owe the 29 October 2016 payment and november 29 is rapidly approaching and I will be totally destroyed if I lose that too.
I have an appointment at the VA hospital tomorrow for my annual checkup, but I’m available anytime after that although you don’t need to call me unless you want too simply because I have laid everything out here.
You have the ear of Mr. Perez.
He believes things are fine.
They are not.
That is why I voted for Trump.
I appreciate the donation as my old pickup was on fumes.
I put 20 gas in the truck so I can make it to the VA tomorrow.
And I used 50 to launch the website linked below because I believe it is immoral for our government agencies to use money that American Citizens have paid in to outsource their work to companies that refuse to hire Americans in America.
If my truck makes it, and any money is left, I will treat myself to a decent meal as I’m sick of bologna and wienies (sure I have foodstamps, but it is a 40 mile round trip to the grocery store, so without gas, you are pretty well limited to the convenience store or family dollar.
That is the state of America for American software developers who have been displaced by the H-1B scam.

This is Ammar, would love to speak with you on the phone. I understand you’re down on your luck, and I am sorry for that. I made a donation to your website, because while I don’t agree with the things you’ve said about me, I do agree that many including you have been left behind in an economic comeback you helped build with your tax dollars and hard work.
My heart goes out to you and the millions of people who are struggling to get by. I promise to do whatever I can to support people like you wherever my career takes me, even if you can’t find reason to support people like me.
Happy to talk more about how I find time to do what I do, and here about what I can do to help you.

Texas Workforce Commission says there are NO Displaced Americans, Get a job….

Like most people, they can’t seem to comprehend that we can’t get a job unless somebody interviews us.

And since they have NEVER made the money we did as software developers, they can’t comprehend that people consider us overqualified, so they won’t interview us because we won’t stay when times get better.

So they throw us into the river to see if we sink, or swim

After all, even though we have paid unemployment all of our lives, that is not up to them unless we worked enough hours in the last year,

The fact that we have been unemployed for the previous five years is not something they can’t comprehend.

Days like this, I ought to just bite the bullet and give in but I’m too hard headed #h1b

Like everybody else, I was a high paid software developer.

But then companies like USAA and Rackspace decided that they could make more money using H-1B’s so they threw the American citizens under the bus.

And our department of veterans affairs continues to run over us.
