No. I'll check it out.
<Writing in the late 1940s, he basically argued that automation would cause mass unemployment. But it hasn't.>
I don't know what it's caused. I am pretty confident it's caused an inexplicable divergence between increased productivity and stagnant wages. I think some of the current unemployment is tech driven, maybe 2% (I understand that implies I believe structural unemployment has increased 2% from historical norms) but I can't imagine there's any way to determine that. I also expect to find in a few years that much of what we are experiencing is frictional unemployment.

<CAMDEN, N.J. -- Wal-Mart is being sued for $1 million by a man who claims he was traumatized by a racist comment made over an intercom at a southern New Jersey store two years ago.>
Did he look like he could be Obamas son?
|May-16-12|| ||galdur: This official 9/11 stuff is straight out of Hollywood. A 757 airliner hit the wall of the Penatgon feet off the ground at a whopping 530 miles per hour. Bruce Willis must have been at the wheel. There was a tremendous explosion and the aircraft basically disintegrated. Yeah right.|

Lie upon lie. Every fact you have is bullshipped. It hit the ground in front of the building, as photographs show. There are remains of cowling on the grass. It bounced into the building while breaking up. You don't know what the hell you are talking about and won't be corrected b y the actual facts. It wasn't going the speed your source says. You have no facts that are solid and convincing. You have been played a solid fool and can't break out of your mindset.
Nothing you post has any credibility.
|May-16-12|| ||diceman: <galdur: I think pipi is totally losing it. Never have I claimed that those tower collapsed faster than gravity.>|
Wow, maybe pinned is the goad-er instead
of the goad-ee? :):):)
|May-16-12|| ||galdur: pipi, you havenīt been paying attention and you donīt read too well which is the norm for you. I referenced earlier the official 9/11 report where they claimed that the airliner hit the wall of the Pentagon at 530 miles per hour. The sources were TSA and NTSB.|
|May-16-12|| ||PinnedPiece: <galdur: Those towers crumbled to dust in mid-air. They fell through themselves virtually without resistance. >|
Incorrect, and I have provided the links and the VISUAL EVIDENCE that conclusively prove your parrotted remarks are stupidly wrong. Repeating defeated lies over and over will not restore them. And by repeating the same falsehoods over and over, YOU PROVIDE the material for every personal attack on you I have delivered. If you won't acknowledge the actual RECORDED EVENT but insist on lies, what other way is there to describe you?
The video evidence shows material falling faster than the collapsing top of the building, and the cloud of debris emphasizes the differential collapsing of interior vs interior, but your assinine websites can't handle the truth and neither can you if your little screwy fables are to survive.
There is nothing to debate but your sanity.

and whats our presidents excuse?

|May-16-12|| ||galdur: <diceman> Something tells me that my credibility here is several paygrades above that of pipi. |
There are major problems with official stories which is a major feature of one-party systems. There is severe demand for political correctness, another clue. There is increasing control to defend the public against constant external threats. Sometimes Eurasia is an ally and sometimes an enemy. Goldstein is finally officially dead after having been killed eleven times but there are other equally potent Hitler-Stalin-al-CIAduh foes in caves somewhere. These are signs of a reactionary system, one that is always on the defensive.
|May-16-12|| ||galdur: RE: 450 million .40 caliber hollow point rounds. This is pretty serious stuff. Why would the domestic security system purchase this? Usually ammunition is purchased to be used, right? They most certainly are up to their ears and then some in other ammo already. It probably isnīt politically correct to discuss these issues.|

Well remember, they overspend, they probably needed 10 bullets
and ordered 450 million.

Ditch that something, quick, its another source of lies.
|May-16-12|| ||galdur: <diceman> Yeah, maybe itīs a scam like those $700 hammers. Still, you need to consider what facilitates all these scams in the first place. You know, something is always threatening the mighty empire. So you have the national security state. It began in post WW2 when the traumatic state of the Great Depression was still fresh in the mind of U.S. policymakers. They were determined to never again suffer that. To understand this policy you need to look at Trumanīs Executive Orders and diverse amendments. Americans are very fast and efficient and interestingly enough Eisenhower warned about the Military Industrial Complex just a decade later in his farewell speech.|
|May-16-12|| ||galdur: pipi, one more contentless post and I will never again be aware of you being here. Unless someone quotes you which will most likely remain a very rare occurrance.|
|May-16-12|| ||PinnedPiece: ===WARNING: BANKRUPT SOCIALISTS===
What a mess.
Greeks pulling money out of banks, ECB locking up funds. I can't wait until the Democrats in power have wreaked equal damage to the U.S.
Obamacare is a great start.
Now calculated by the same CBO to be <twice the cost originally estimated> based on the original half-truths provided by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.
You only do this in a recession when your main aim is to destroy first in order to rebuild on the ruins. No wonder Rush Limbaugh said in the first weeks of Obama presidency; "I hope he fails."
|May-16-12|| ||PinnedPiece: Yet another unbelievably fantastic technology opening up, making a vast new territory of possibilities for creative entrepreneurs:|
<Led by researchers at Brown University, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and Massachusetts General Hospital, the study--known as BrainGate--utilized a device called the BrainGate Neural Interface System, implanted directly into the motor cortex of the participants. Wired to a bank of computers, the system was then able to decode their brain's neural signals for movement and translate them into robotic movement. "This work is a critical step," John Donoghue, the neuroscientist who developed BrainGate, said in a statement announcing the research, "toward realizing the long-term goal of creating a neurotechnology that will restore movement, control, and independence to people with paralysis or limb loss." >
I doubt the technology will be limited to that realm. For sure it won't put people out of work: it very well may create whole new categories of jobs.
This is AVATAR-type technology on the way, folks.
btw Avatar 2 to be released in 2015:
For "real": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwLd... (???)
|May-16-12|| ||galdur: When the fight is for god and country, bills are not to be questioned. Maybe the inventory gets buried sometimes if the atmosphere isnīt right for terror and war scams. Warehouse capacity isnīt infinite. On the other hand if you have infinite and profitable wars on fraudulent pretenses how do you maintain the scams? The supply of the excessively gullible is likely to go down. Your adventures will be taken apart which will make any maintaining scams impossible. It will be a very defensive situation. You will most likely stock up on extreme firepower to try to avoid being hanged.|
|May-16-12|| ||galdur: Of course as pipi is concerned I should bear in mind that those attacks are most likely a cry for attention. I learned this in high school to some advantage as females were concerned. Itīs an intriguing person that somehow doesnīt fit the usual approach. Iīm sure you get the general picture.|

Yes the Greeks are running for the Grexit.

Give us a break, galdur.
|May-16-12|| ||Colonel Mortimer: When American Dream was alive, they had Steve Job, Johnny Cash and Bob Hope.|
And now there is no job, no cash and no hope.
|May-16-12|| ||Jim Bartle: PinnedPiece: "Look at GM. They should have had an orderly bankruptcy and reorganization that allowed the investors to get something back. They got nothing."|
My understanding is that this was impossible because there was no private financing anywhere, the government was the only source. Right or wrong?
|May-16-12|| ||galdur: <Jim Bartle> All right, youīre a spokeman for <us> which obviously includes yours truly. It seems to indicate some sort of dysfunction.|
|May-16-12|| ||Jim Bartle: OK, then, give me a break. I don't need to hear who PinnedPiece is crying for help or how you took advantage of girls in high school.|
