In Idaho, a researcher at the state Department of Labor looked into automation and how it may play out locally. His overall estimate is based on that of the Oxford analysts, that nearly half of state jobs are susceptible within a couple decades.
But there’s no mention that workers are shoppers and are the engine of […]
Democrats don’t seem to care much about Americans — their safety, education or job prospects — judging by the latest ploy from big-city mayors who are largely Ds. They recently wrote to Obama, asking him to extend federal protection to illegal aliens under DACA.
In addition, mayors of Los Angeles, Chicago, and San Francisco are building […]
Every late December sees lists of important events that have come and gone in the past calendar year. One of the most fascinating is the list of top news stories chosen in a poll of US editors and news directors. It is a snapshot of one year’s news, but it can also reveal underlying trends […]
On Saturday, the Los Angeles Times continued its series of “Desperate Trek” extreme sob stories. The latest has some astonishing assertions, in particular that America can’t refuse bogus asylum-seekers because the consequences of rejection would be “so dire.”
It’s ridiculous that foreigners from distant lands are even allowed to claim they have a “credible fear” of […]
The report below from the Houston Chronicle about smart machines in the petroleum industry is helpful because it is fairly precise about how many jobs are being lost. As in many businesses, a complete wipeout of jobs is not what’s happening, but the increased efficiency of advanced machines does remove a significant chunk of human […]
It sounds good when talking heads on TV jabber that the Republicans control the government, but the reality is more complex. While the GOP dominates the House, the party’s hold on the Senate is a slim 52-seat majority.
Worse, amnesty-hack Repubs are determined to shred US borders and sovereignty — do the names Jeff Flake, John […]
A few months ago, I worked with The Social Contract quarterly to produce an issue with a section discussing the topic of how automation affects America’s need for immigration. The result was the Fall 2016 issue, subtitled “When Robots Replace Humans.”
After writing dozens of blogs for LimitsToGrowth.org about rapidly advancing automation, robots and computer software, my […]
A little-examined sub-genre of the immigrant Sob Story is the Fear Story where diverse foreigners claim to be anxious about violence against them based on Americans’ alleged racism or Islamophobia etc. But no violence has occurred.
Is it actually News when nothing happens but there is a ginned-up fear that it might? The liberal media apparently believes […]
Last week Fox TV host Tucker Carlson interviewed robotics expert and Columbia professor Hod Lipson, author of Driverless: Intelligent Cars and the Road Ahead to discuss the future of transportation and jobs. The professor is obviously a well educated guy and an expert in his field, but he apparently doesn’t get how the entire basis […]
For the last several days, the Los Angeles Times has presented a series of featured front page sob stories about how mean America is to illegal aliens. For Christmas day, the front pager was particularly scoldy, by suggesting in effect, “You spoiled citizens are having a wonderful holiday and are too cruel to open your […]
The ChiCom’s economic success via manufacturing has come with a large cost to the health of the Chinese people and to the environment with choking pollution caused by unrestrained factory emissions. The recent prolonged spell of suffocating smog has shown the severity of the problem.
A few days ago, Beijing issued its first Red Alert of the […]
It’s not a secret that the civilization’s Islamic enemies in Al Qaeda and ISIS have used immigration to further its project of world conquest. For example, an ISIS operative stated that the group would use the Syrian refugee crisis to infiltrate Europe through placing its agents within the fleeing hordes. There’s even an islamic word […]
