If you were smart enough, you could run the numbers and see what an idiot you are. LOL
Every person here, every one, has correctly identified automation as eliminating jobs. Lots of jobs.
So Woody, being angry with me, chooses to make a fool of himself by proposing that automation will create jobs at an equal rate to what it replaces!!
If so, why bother?? LOL
How many auto workers have been replaced by robots??
Express your answer in thousands, please.
One worker can maintain a group of robots that replaces dozens of workers. DUH
The only people who use your type of profanity are those with limited vocabularies.
can one worker build all those robots ? and using "duh" doesn't show a limited vocabularly or trying to use the zenophobic?

run along, pipsqueak...

You really need to figure out what senseless is having the vapors about. Senseless didn't like what the Defense Panel stated and lamely decided to attack the group as illegit.

Not knowing what they offered in their report to Congress has you at a major disadvantage

Right. They should be at the discretion of the administration in office.

<quoted text>who creates that automation? just one guy? you are an idiot.
no you misunderstood what people said, automation replaces some jobs it creates others.
The point, which flew right over your head, is the ratio.

1 for 10 replaced?? 3 for 10?? What's the ratio, Jeffy??

How many will be created versus how many will be displaced??

This has been the challenge since the days of the Luddites.

For you to pretend there is any sort of equal #s jobs created and jobs replaced, you're dreaming.

If the best you can do is call me an idiot, you've already lost.

I read it this morning, nitwit. Quit playing your stupid games.

I've been here all day, and have't missed anything. She clearly doesn't like the group, but she didn't deny their position or influence.

Why else would nitwit nation be all atwitter about it?? DUH

You just like beating a dead horse.

most likely more jobs created as the new technologies will create more possibilites.. just look at the history of automation for your answer....oh yeah, history already proved you wrong,and you were just too stupid to see it.

The majority of those whistle-blowers were victimized under the Bush administration but, in all fairness, you really can't blame a president for the actions of VA management no matter how much you try.
The federal Office of Special Counsel, which investigates whistle-blower complaints, is examining 37 claims of retaliation by V.A. employees in 19 states, and recently persuaded the V.A. to drop the disciplining of three staff members who had spoken out. Together with reports to other watchdog agencies and the Times interviews, the accounts by V.A. whistle-blowers cover several dozen hospitals, with complaints dating back seven years or longer.
“Seven years or longer” would drop the whole mess into the Bush administration. Of course, the problem with this argument is that George Bush stopped being President five and a half years ago, and even then the problems at the VA were so obvious that they became a campaign issue in 2007-8. Barack Obama pledged the “most transparent administration ever” during his primary and general-election campaigns and attacked the Bush administration’s handling of the VA (as did John McCain, the Republican nominee). The Obama administration received warnings as far back as the 2008-9 post-election transition that wait times were being manipulated to hide poor response, and then warned repeatedly after that to look into the issue, including one internal memo in 2010.

What did Obama do to fulfill his campaign pledge? He demanded more resources, which Congress supplied — increasing the VA budget more on a percentage basis than any other Cabinet agency (78%), with an extra $235 billion over and above the FY2008 budget baseline. Obama also insisted that Eric Shinseki was the man to put discipline into the VA’s bureaucracy. And after that, Obama washed his hands of the VA, rarely meeting with Shinseki on his own; the last such meeting before the scandal broke was in July 2012.

The problem at the VA today isn’t what happened “seven or more years ago.” It’s that the current administration had five and a half years to fix it, got an avalanche of spending with which to do so, got the people it wanted in key executive positions, and yet did nothing to fix the problems facing our nation’s veterans nor the honest people who wanted real change in their work environments on behalf of their captive consumers. It’s yet another reminder that we can’t trust the current administration to make a single-payer system any more responsive to internal or external customers, and that the only way to force changes in the VA is to open the system up to real choice for its consumers based on their own volition, rather than the same corrupt metrics that just got exposed as a systemic — and deadly — fraud.

I like it when you're all angry and stuff!! It's funny!!

I'm glad you agree. Zenophobic just looks right!!

Duh is quite succinct, if you understood that. Gets the point across without excess verbiage. The art of language.

What's the ratio of jobs gained to jobs lost, Jeffy??

You can keep running away from your ignorance, but I will bury you with it.

Flake will return and inform you of the transformative nature of automation and how nobody will have jobs in the future, as the robots design and build better robots..........and little worker robots wil fix the broken ones.

And all people will have to do is spread mulch. You'll be ok.

Her first volley was a Rep was the head of the Panel.

You would have thought when she discovered they were a bi-partisan group, created by law to report to Congress, and appointed by Hagel, senseless would have given up her attack on the group. Nay, talking about beating dead horses.

So don't tell me that you have followed all the posts as you have NOW twice made it clear you do not understand what is being discussed.

Senseless is clueless, like you. She lacks the ability to piss anyone off.

You two sure cling to each other for emotional support. If you have to tell each other how smart you are it kind of destroys that concept.

Obama is doing just fine. Thank God we don't have a Republican president.
"Dear optimist, pessimist and realist, While you guys were busy arguing about the glass of water, I drank it! "

Sincerely, opportunist.

You utterly fail to discern the difference between benign opportunism and crass exploitation.

Buying up distressed property during bad economic times and reselling during good economic times is opportunism. Opportunity Knocks But Once. Misfortune Often.

Playing the Race Card to win elections, pass legislation, browbeat political opponents, get a job, used as extortion against banks as a Community Organizer, find sympathy from women, promote the evils of Socialism and a long, long list of Snake Oil uses is exploitative.

You sound precisely like an exploitative personality.
