Obama has yet again used his old speech on why there are job losses in the US.
I remember his speech last year, in which he blamed ATMs and automated Kiosks at the airport for job losses, in his 'new' speech on 'the economy', Obama rehashes his old speech and adds the Internet as another reason so many are out of work.

That fact that machines can replace jobs that used to be done by people SHOULD result in: shorter hours for the average worker, more vacation time for the average worker, AND earlier retirement. Higher efficiency from technology should be incorporated into our economy in a way to make things better for EVERYONE. It's simple.
Only the simple minded see automation as the problem, when it the end it will be the ultimate solution.
It's just common sense.
Oh, and I am self employed online. I own a website teaching others to become self employed online. The internet is NOT a bad thing, all of this is so silly.edit on 6-12-2011 by CREAM because: (no reason given)
Obama almost sees the out of work as underlings that matter not, as long as his pockets and bank accounts are full, as long as he can casually stroll onto the golf course the out of work don't seem to matter to him at all.
