Monday’s Fox News report on a new “crime prevention” robot was mostly upbeat and tech-friendly, with the only concern being that of privacy. The robot is a essentially a surveillance camera on wheels that also collects personal data.
Tech reporter Peter Pachal noted in the interview that the robot “eliminates that night watchman duty.”

When the Sixty Minutes segment “Are robots hurting job growth?” showed last January, it made clear that automation was replacing human workers at an increasing rate with smart machines doing a variety of complex tasks.
But American jobs being automated out of existence was apparently not considered in elites’ thinking about immigration “reform.” In June after [...]
Today is Labor Day, and that means the mainstream press deigns to look at actual victims of America’s self-destructive globalist economy for 24 hours. On the other 364 days, we see the bloodless statistics when the government burps out new ones, but without a human face.

To the long list of scandals stewing in Washington, we should add the push for massively increased legal immigration (plus amnesty) when more than 20 million citizens cannot find jobs and the labor participation rate is the lowest in 34 years. (Ninety million Americans are not in the labor force.) Debates on the Senate bill [...]
My two cents on the Trayvon frenzy: there’s a big element of emotional displacement of black anger with the President transferred to this case. Many blacks are deeply disappointed with the Obama Presidency, in particular the terrible unemployment because of his destructive handling of the economy. Life for millions of black citizens has gotten worse, [...]
In a recent television interview, Congressman Mo Brooks (R-AL) informatively strung together some known numbers about the Senate amnesty atrocity S.744:
REP BROOKS: We’re talking about under the Senate Gang of Eight bill roughly 44 million foreigners who are either already here, given legal status or who will come here over the next decade according to [...]
A vexing problem with mainstream media is their disinterest in the connection between excessive immigration and poverty. Apparently they never heard of supply and demand, even though the captains of industry know the principle very well. (Hint, an oversupply of workers leads to lower wages and big business profits.)
Analysts have said for years that [...]
The Associated Press has a cheerful pro-amnesty item for Memorial Day weekend, noting how the 1986 legalization allowed Mexican farmworkers to get out of the fields and into better jobs. AP’s Mexican hero, Paulino Mejia, moved from agricultural picking to construction, a field once prized by Americans for its decent pay until immigrants and illegal [...]
The government suits are doing cartwheels in California for a rather pathetic milestone — the state’s unemployment level has fallen below 10 percent for the first time in over four years. The official unemployment rate is 9.8 percent, second worst in the country, yet economic pundits declare things like, “California’s economy is growing and is [...]
I was sorry to read of the death of Maria “Masha” Sergeyevna Rumyantseva, 18, in Yellowstone Park last Thursday. The Russian woman apparently was on a rock ledge that gave way, and she fell 400 feet down the canyon. She was exploring on her first day in the park, where she had come to work [...]
Liberal economist Paul Krugman didn’t make much news with his pronouncement on Saturday that our current downturn is really a Depression. Presumably the Opravda media didn’t think the remark met pre-election guidelines.

America’s young college graduates are having a hard time finding jobs in the long-lasting recession. Many are saddled with a mountain of debt but few prospects to pay off that burden and get on with their lives. Some even move back into their parents’ homes.
Gallup pollsters dug up some ugly numbers for April:
Gallup: 1 [...]
