Robots Stealing Chinese Jobs Now

Hate to link to the Old York Times, but:

In 2014, Chinese factories accounted for about a quarter of the global ranks of industrial robots — a 54 percent increase over 2013. According to the International Federation of Robotics, it will have more installed manufacturing robots than any other country by 2017.

Midea, a leading manufacturer of home appliances in the heavily industrialized province of Guangdong, plans to replace 6,000 workers in its residential air-conditioning division, about a fifth of the work force, with automation by the end of the year. Foxconn, which makes consumer electronics for Apple and other companies, plans to automate about 70 percent of factory work within three years, and already has a fully robotic factory in Chengdu.

Wage slaves are treated like robots because they can be replaced by robots.

This is not a bad thing. As machines do more and more of farming, manufacturing, driving, etc., the smartest people will gravitate more and more to occupations that require human creativity. Everyone else will enjoy leisure, or work in occupations that require a physical human presence (plumbers, electricians…)

This has already happened.

More people apply for disability benefits now than get jobs, usually citing some intangible symptom like depression or back pain. They are the new leisure class, content to live a comfortable existence at “wages” far below those of their cognitively-gifted fellow citizens, who work ever more hours for ever more money.

This will lead to ever-increasing inequality between the Cognitive Elite and everyone else, which will get worse over generations as the Cognitive Elite engage in assortative mating.

Suck on that, Occupy!

Emma Sulkowicz has decided to extend her fame the 21st-century way: With a sex tape.

Although…

You can tell “dad bods” are in fashion because both of the people in this video have one. But you do at least have to give an actress credit for doing nude scenes with a man who has larger breasts than she does. Sulkowicz’s size queendom apparently extends to love handles and leave the viewer sympathetic to the travails of her infamous mattress.

Best viewer comment left at the video:

It comes a no surprise that she has to pay men for sex at this point

“Pentagon To Bypass Iraqi Army And Supply ISIS Directly”

The plan has its roots in Army Capt. Noel Abelove’s PowerPoint briefing, which was hailed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, sources said. Abelove, a supply officer on the Joint Logistics Staff (J-4), realized that cutting out the Iraqi Army middlemen had numerous advantages.

“They taught me at West Point that ‘amateurs talk strategy but professionals talk logistics,’” Abelove told reporters. “The most important advantage is, we only supply about 40 percent of each ISIS requisition.”

Abelove continued: “Before, when we gave the [Iraqi] Army 100 percent, then we had to fly strike missions to destroy a lot of it a week or two later. This way we immediately degrade ISIS by over 60 percent, without having to use our increasingly scarce missiles and JDAMs, and more importantly, without having to put any airmen into harm’s way.”

The Rubios like to (gasp!) drive fast:

According to a search of the Miami-Dade and Duval County court dockets, the Rubios have been cited for numerous infractions over the years for incidents that included speeding, driving through red lights and careless driving. A review of records dating back to 1997 shows that the couple had a combined 17 citations: Mr. Rubio with four and his wife with 13. On four separate occasions they agreed to attend remedial driving school after a violation.

[…]

Ms. Rubio’s driving record is even messier.

According to the records, her driver’s license faced suspension on three occasions, including after a 2009 episode where she was driving a white Cadillac at 58 miles per hour on a road in West Miami with a speed limit of 35 m.p.h. She paid a $302 fine and agreed to attend a four-hour course at a local traffic school.

However, Ms. Rubio, who also took a four-hour basic driver improvement course after a careless driving incident in 2000, failed to complete the class and had to pay another $34 penalty.

The lessons apparently did not stick. A year later, in 2010, she was stopped for driving 23 m.p.h. in a school zone where the speed limit was 15 m.p.h. She was fined $185.

This is only going to help the Rubios. Being attacked by the Lying Liberal Media for speeding (!) is manna for Marco.

But that’s what I think. What do you think?

Does Mrs. Rubio's need for speed make you:

Barack Obama:

“One of my core principles is that I will never engage in a politics in which I’m trying to divide people or make them less than me because they look different or have a different religion. That’s a core principle, that’s not something I would violate.

Unfortunately, too many politicians, they’re just climbing the ladder but they don’t know why, and when they get there then they’re not very effective leaders.

You have to be willing to lose something for your principles, you have to be willing to lose an election.”

J’accuse! Here’s a video from when Obama was running for president:

I Heart Paul LePage

When last we met Maine’s governor, he’d lopped 70% off the state’s food stamp rolls by insisting that able-bodied adults without children volunteer for just six hours a week.

Now LePage is going further, insisting that Maine’s legislature let the people vote to make Maine the 10th state without a state income tax:

During a fiery news conference that lasted nearly an hour, Gov. Paul LePage pledged Friday to veto every bill sponsored by a Democrat until his opposition relents and accepts his constitutional amendment to eliminate Maine’s income tax.

LePage this year has proposed a constitutional amendment that would eliminate the state’s income tax by the year 2020. Republicans, who have shied away from the governor’s more comprehensive tax reform efforts, have rallied around the amendment.

Democrats have opposed it, sparking LePage’s trademark fury during a news conference at the Blaine House.

Efforts to amend the state’s Constitution require not only the support of two-thirds of the Legislature but the approval of Maine voters. LePage has said voters should be given the option of eliminating the income tax, which accounts for about half of all state revenue.

“If the Democrats are going to disenfranchise the Maine people, then the governor of Maine is going to make sure that every bill that comes down from the House and the Senate with a Democrat sponsor will be required to have a two-thirds vote, because I’m going to veto every one, and I did a bunch this morning,” LePage said.

Wow! I feel like I’m living in an alternate universe, where at least one Republican governor has testes!

Proved: The American People Are Morons

A few days ago, I noted that Americans think 25 percent (!) of the population is gay. Apparently, we’re just as clueless about other demographics:

Americans estimate that blacks make up one third of the population, even though they actually represent a relatively stable 13 percent. They also overestimate the proportion of Hispanics by almost double, estimating they make up 3 in 10 of the total population.

Hallelujah! With the population composed almost exclusively of blacks (33%), Hispanics (30%), and gay people (25%), there almost aren’t any straight white men left to oppress these groups!

How The Lying Liberal Media Censors the Truth

Consider these facts as reported by, say, WaPo:

A Cleveland police officer was acquitted today for his role in the 2012 fatal shooting of two unarmed people in a car after officers mistook the sound of the car backfiring as gunshots.

[…]

When Russell’s Chevy Malibu finally came to a stop in East Cleveland, 13 officers opened fire, shooting at least 137 rounds into the vehicle. Brelo, prosecutors said, was the only one who continued to shoot after the threat was over. He climbed onto the hood of the Malibu and shot 15 rounds into the windshield, striking Russell, who was driving, and Williams, who was in the passenger seat.

Guy innocently drives past police station, his car backfires, 13 officers fire 137 shots into the vehicle, and one jumps onto the hood and shoots 15 times into the windshield for no apparent reason at all.

Just about every Lying-Liberal-Media publication will give you exactly this set of facts. Try CNN, the Old York Times, the BBC, ABC

I had to go to Wikipedia – Wikipedia! – to find the truth the LLM is hiding:

After 22 miles of fleeing, their vehicle was blocked in the rear of a school. Russell then rammed a patrol car and drove towards an officer on foot.

But don’t expect to find out about that if you only read the Lying Liberal Media…

And there’s the inevitable toxicology report, a la Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown:

Toxicology reports released Friday show Russell, 43, of Maple Heights, was under the influence of cocaine and alcohol while evading police in his 1979 Chevrolet Malibu. Russell’s blood alcohol content was .131 at the time of the test, well above the legal limit of .08.

His passenger, Williams, 30, of Garfield Heights, was under the influence of cocaine and had marijuana in her system.

Don’t expect to read that in the Lying Liberal Media either.

Both the suspects had previous convictions, were high on cocaine and alcohol, and had been pulled over for a turn-signal violation when they fled. They endangered public safety by driving intoxicated at 100 mph for 22 miles, into a school, into a cop car, and then at an officer on foot.

The officers who stopped them saved lives. The cops in this case are heroes.

And the scumbags are, well, scumbags. But, to the Lying Liberal Media, they’re martyrs. Hence the Lying.

The Baltimore Riots Were RACIST!

Targeting Asian-owned businesses:

These recent immigrants came to the United States largely after the Civil War and the Jim Crow system of segregation and thus have no connection to the charges of continued institutional racism that some blame for the disturbances. Yet the New York Times reported April 27 that gang members in Baltimore had specifically “stood in front of stores that they knew were black-owned businesses to protect them from looting and vandalism,” pointing the rioters instead “toward Chinese- and Arab-owned stores.”

The Korea Times reported April 30, quoting the Korean-American Grocers Association International and the Korean Society of Maryland, that at least 40 Korean-owned businesses in Baltimore were damaged in the riots. One Korean-American-owned business, Fireside North lounge and liquor store, was set on fire, with its owner and the owner of another business, Uptown Liquor, reportedly sustaining injuries. The Associated Press stated that a total of 200 small businesses, many owned by Asian-Americans, were shut down as a result of damage caused by rioters.

WBAL added that masked intruders not only looted Freddie’s Liquor but beat up store owner Young Park. John Bang, the owner of Hopkins Beauty Supply, said he applied lessons he learned from the L.A. riots: He barricaded himself “with an arsenal of weapons.” He told WBAL, “I have registered firearms, a shotgun, AR-15, pistols.” Bang said that if rock-carrying looters tried to enter his business, “I would say ‘I’m armed! Don’t come in!’ And if they don’t believe me and became more aggressive, I would give them a warning shot.”
CNN carried a report on May 7 of a young Korean-American man viewing with shock a video of an older Korean woman sobbing in the ruins of her 30-year-old wig and beauty shop on Pratt Street that had been destroyed by looters. Her son, Matthew Chung, wrote on Facebook, “My parents came to this country with no money and worked hard to set up a little business that’s been in the same neighborhood in Baltimore City for over 25 years. But just in one night everything they have worked for is now all gone.”

Unfortunately for them, these Asian business owners don’t look like Obama’s son.
