It's Not Just A Theory

I recently moved away from a city that prided itself on being a frontrunner in the liberal race of ridiculousness, right over the cliff to idiocity.  This included the fact that they were very busy there getting things lined up such that everyone who can show up, breathe and do a half-assed job can be rewarded with $15 per hour.  Never mind that people who currently earn that wage will also then desire more, etc., etc....

 But there was also a nagging thought in the back of my mind that told me it would never be that simple for other reasons.  And now, I have seen it with my own eyes.  The other day, in small town Palm Springs CA where things happen slowly and the older than average population is resistant to change, there it was.  The 'it' that I refer to is an automated ordering system at a restaurant.  It was right there when you walked in, and for now it was just there if you wanted to try it out.  I could clearly see how this would be able to eliminate some need for human labor, so I asked a member of the waitstaff if he was worried some people might lose jobs because of this new device.  "No", he replied.  "They just won't hire as many new people".  Well, well, well...  You don't say!

  3. That answer was classic. No--they just won't hire as many people.

    Dude, isn't that what I JUST SAID???? (I say dude, because he is clearly a "dude.")

    Mom and I talk about how there will be a time (probably sooner than we think) when all cars drive themselves while the people sleep, text, watch TV, etc. Driving WILL be a thing of the past. You know, because people are the factor that makes it unsafe, causing traffic accidents... and death. What we need is more automated stuff... because people just muck it up.

  4. There is a simple solution that should please California liberals and boost the President's employment numbers. Fire all the McDonalds and Burger King employees. Then, have BK hire Mac's people and Mac hire BK's people. While all the bureaucratic changes are taking place, the machines will get the orders right - and make change!
