For Saturday’s front page sob story about “migrants,” America’s open-borders propaganda sheet interviewed aliens by name and one was identifiably pictured, so they are hardly hiding from authorities. The government routinely releases violent criminals rather than deport them, so it’s highly doubtful that mere unlawful workers will be given free trips home on the taxpayer’s [...]
With mainstream media, you are lucky to get half a loaf, and a recent Washington Post item is a prime example. The piece noted how the increasing use of smart machines performing complex workplace tasks has been negatively affecting employment, and automation should therefore be a matter of public debate in the upcoming Presidential campaign.
A couple years back, I suggested a journalist employment visa be created to promote more sympathy in America’s newsrooms for citizen workers who are replaced by dirt-cheap foreigners: “Let’s Have Immigrant Diversity in the Main Stream Media!”.
The news coverage about Obama’s amnesty being temporarily blocked caused a flood of sob-story crapdoodle about illegal aliens in [...]
Is anyone surprised that the President’s imperial amnesty edict has a fast track to citizenship tucked inside? For Democrat elites, immigration and open borders have always been about millions of future voters from cultures that normally prefer big government.
Obama is riding roughshod over the Constitution, national sovereignty and the separation of powers because he knows the [...]
Many factory floors can look like lonely places today, if you expect to see human workers. The assembly line designed by Henry Ford created jobs for thousands of Americans, but recently those workers have been replaced by machines.
There’s a workplace revolution happening now from manufacturing plants to offices. A 2013 report from the Associated Press [...]
The President likes to talk up the American middle class and how he is working to protect it. Meanwhile in the real world, the middle class is shrinking because of Washington policies like mass immigration, outsourcing and excess regulation.
Obama has courted the billionaires of Silicon Valley to be supporters, and the tech bosses like open [...]
Jim Clifton, the Chairman and CEO of the Gallup polling company, said what many Americans already knew, that the administration’s rosy view of declining joblessness is phony baloney. A January Fox poll found 64 percent of Americans believe the economy is still in recession, so there is a lot of suffering down on Main Street. [...]
The Center for Immigration Studies used a FOIA request to find out how many extra-legal work permits the administration has doled out to non-Americans since 2009 and the result was a stunning 5.5 million. No wonder the net job growth has gone to immigrants and aliens.
The study’s author, Jessica Vaughan, appeared with Lou Dobbs to [...]
Amazon has moved in a big way toward automating its “fulfillment centers” where customer orders are processed. It uses the Kiva warehouse system shown in a local TV report (below), in which management is just a bit too cheerful about humans working happily alongside the zippy little machines which bring items to be packed into [...]
Last October, when I blogged about Orchard Supply Hardware’s new retail robots, their description gave the impression of limited functionality: Greeter Robots Are Unveiled in Hardware Stores. These days, they are called “sales assistants.” Apparently the machines are working out.
Below, an OSHbot helps a customer find a desired gizmo. The smart machine costs $50,000 and [...]
What does it cost to start a race war? Is $33 million in one year enough? Perhaps not quite, judging from George Soros’ efforts to create anger among black Americans against the authorities. Plenty of chaos happened, certainly, and Ferguson the town will probably not recover from the arson and riots it suffered for decades, [...]
The report says the contract calls for “an automated assistant” that can fly the plane, so essentially a co-pilot. Presumably the pilot will be jettisoned as well a few years later.
That innovation should be no surprise. The 1980 movie Airplane! had a functioning auto-pilot that worked perfectly well… most of the time.
Of course in 1980, [...]
