Technology To Blame For Unemployment

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/06/16

If it weren’t for Eli Whitney and his Cotton Gin, we’d have more agriculture jobs in the deep south.

If it weren’t for John Deere and the advancements in plowing, discing, tilling, fertilizing, harvesting equipment, we’d have more agriculture jobs nationwide.

If it weren’t for Henry Ford and the mass introduction of the assembly line, we’d have a much higher need for artisans and master craftsmen.

If it weren’t for the rotary telephone, we’d have enough jobs available for every woman over the age of 18 to wear headphones and ask the all-important question “how may I direct your call?”.

If it weren’t for the automobile, we’d have a lot more jobs for liverymen, horse breeders, corn and hay farmers, street sweepers.

If it weren’t or the milking machine, we’d have a lot more jobs for the maids a-milking.

If it weren’t for progress, we’d have jobs… or something.

Barack Obama blamed ATMs and kiosks for unemployment numbers. He’s just so stupid and socialist when TOTUS isn’t telling him what to say.

Michelle Malkin states:

Obamanomics perpetuates a Luddite view — a stupidly static, anti-technology view — of the economy that betrays hostility not only to real innovators in America, but to all of the individual consumers and employees who benefit from their advances.

ATMs and ticket kiosks are not the enemies of economic success.

She’s right, of course.

Anthony Weiner Resigns, Gets Heckled

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/06/16

Allahpundit is less than impressed with the heckling and understandably so. The heckling was inappropriately vulgar and just plain inappropriate.

But let’s look at the other side. Code Pink, La Raza, Socialists, Communists, environmentalist wackos, SDSers on college campuses, Union mobs and all manner of other radical Leftists (and mainstream Liberals) frequently do their best to shout down Conservative speakers and disrupt speeches. With cowbells, whistles, bullhorns, loud and vulgar shouting, rocks through windows, invading the stage, etc, etc. It’s what they do.

Quite frankly, any Leftist who decries the lack of civility or the outright inappropriate behavior of the Weiner hecklers is being hypocritical. First decry the lack of civility of the aforementioned Leftist groups who stoop low enough to shout profanities at a 14-year-old girl and who make it their goal to disrupt speeches. Only then do you have any room to decry the lack of civility in NYC toward Anthony Weiner.

As I said, it was indeed inappropriate. We don’t need to stoop to the mob-like disruptive behavior of the Left. But the Left have absolutely no room to complain about the behavior they use being used against them.
