    Innovation always …
    Innovation always finds something for people to do. There should be no excuse to allow your citizens to starve on the streets, begging for scraps from passerby. Fix the infrastructure. That one’s a freebie.

    maybe people can …
    maybe people can work 2 day a week. then we can employ more people since the resources output is still the same using robot so we can make roughly the same amount of money as a full time job.

    People in this country have a gross lack of knowledge on “who” actually runs our government.

    You know what …
    You know what really kills middle class jobs? The bank bail out. Somehow the banks were entitled even after they failed and now they won’t invest because WE aren’t spending the money that was GIVEN to them. Stupid AP. Hire someone with a brain to explain things, please.

    RIDICULOUS! That …
    RIDICULOUS! That is the POINT of technology, to make life easier, simpler. The real problem is that our RIGHT to life has been turned into a privilege because the necessities of life are now monetized. Brainwashing the public. Life is a right of the living, not a privilege and if technology doesn’t make life easier, freeing up your time, what’s the point? AP is brainwashing monster. our educational system makes ppl dumb enough to listen to this crap without thinking it all through.

    Wouldn’t be a bad …
    Wouldn’t be a bad thing if we were willing to redesign our system to accommodate it. Eventually we aren’t going to have a choice. Our machines are going to be responsible for the vast majority of our labor sooner than we realize.

    It’s impossible …
    It’s impossible that one man is ruining the job market. You do realize the President isn’t some kind of a dictator or the King or something right? It doesn’t appear you do…. I’m not trying to defend Obama, he’s an asshole, but he’s certainly not responsible for 90% of the he gets blamed for. People in this country have a gross lack of knowledge on how the government actually operates.

    Fast food could be automated. It’s only a matter of time before someone out there starts a fast food burger joint completely automated. You would still need a few employee’s for stocking and cleaning but that is it.

    In truth,a tax & regulation structure that forces manufacturing overseas kills middle class jobs.This is somebody’s propaganda.
