From President Trump to Amnesty Don — a Former Democrat Reverts

It’s pretty likely that Democrats learned one big lesson from the 2016 election: that they need to import more immigrants into the country since new residents overwhelmingly choose the D-candidates.

Africa: Robot Imports Threaten Jobs

We tend to think of automation-caused job loss to be a first world problem, but as the smart machines get cheaper, they are appearing in poor countries as well. Places like Africa, with its host of difficulties, do not have the resources to cope with worsening unemployment and angry residents. Results may range from social disruption […]

San Francisco Supervisor Proposes Robot Tax

It’s interesting how Democrats on average seem more aware of how automation threatens the economic system of most of the world, and the resulting mass unemployment must be faced with planning. Perhaps it’s because the Ds are more comfortable with handing out cash (one suggested solution, namely Universal Basic Income), while Republicans see smart machines […]

Hotels and Restaurants Expand Use of Automation

Robot bellhops were introduced to the public as a coming thing in 2014 when trials began. Now they and other automated technology are becoming normalized, as reported in a CBS Los Angeles TV segment.

California: Indian Illegal Alien Prepares for His Deportation

The illegal alien sob story genre is indeed undergoing a renaissance as a result of the Trump administration’s tough enforcement.
