Retail Use of Automation Is Increasing

Automation is creating a revolution in shopping: from ordering merchandise from Amazon to visiting a local supermarket with self-checkout, the machines are moving in. In particular, big changes are coming in retail out where the public will see them. Store sales persons who can advise and help customers are pretty much on the way out.

Murderous MS-13 Gang Terrorizes Long Island Schools as a Result of Obama Policies

The recent Long Island speech by Attorney General Jeff Sessions promising to crack down on MS-13 gangsters has brought needed attention on the problem.

On Friday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions visited Central Islip on Long Island, New York, an area suffering from worsened gang crime, particularly the ultra-violent MS-13 gang from Central America.

University of California Hid $175 Million in Secret Funds, According to Auditor

It’s a pretty big scandal in California that an audit published Tuesday showed the President of the University Janet Napolitano had accumulated a secret slush fund of $175 million. Napolitano’s office responded that no, the amount of UC cash hidden from regents and state officials is only $38 million.

What’s particularly shocking is how for years […]

LA Times (Mis)Interprets Montana’s Objection to Refugee Dumping

Tuesday’s Los Angeles Times front page contained a sob-story extravaganza of refugee resettlement boosters cast as the virtuous heroes, while the opponents of importing sketchy African/Middle-Eastern Muslims etc. are evil haters. The main photo is of a smiling African boy in a welcoming church.

Indians Are Disappointed with Americans’ Choice of Donald Trump as President

There’s a certain kind of America-bashing that should be welcomed as positive, exemplified by Monday’s New York Times article that described America as a “land of lost opportunity” for Indians who now feel disenchanted about possible immigration. Apparently we’ve become a horrible racist nation since Donald Trump was elected president: the Times says Indians are shocked […]

Ex-foreign Service Officer Warns against Open Borders

Tucker Carlson had something of an Earth Day message during a Friday show segment, when he interviewed a former foreign service officer, David Seminara, who screened thousands of visa applications as part of his job.

Automation-Caused Job Loss May Spawn Third-World Instability, World Bank Warns

It would be a mistake to think that automation is a first-world affliction only. As the cost of robots decrease, they will replace workers in the third world also. (See my Social Contract article on this topic: How Automation Threatens Third World Stability.)

Third-world automation is happening now, as shown by robot arms painting motorcycle gas […]

Surplus Workers (Fueled by Immigration) Decrease Wages, L.A. Times Admits

It’s hard to imagine the Los Angeles Times expressing any negativity about illegal immigration ever, but Friday’s front page illustrated in plain dollars how supply and demand function in the workplace.
