Ken Fisher, Billionaire Forbes Writer, Attempts To Argue That The U.S. Needs Fewer Jobs

For years Americans have pondered the mystery of how to create more jobs. Turns out we've been thinking about it all wrong: What we need are fewer jobs.

Billionaire investor and author Ken Fisher explains in Forbes -- the Christmas Eve issue, on newsstands soon!-- that "Job Growth Is Overrated."

"Believe it or not, I’m for fewer jobs, not more," he starts out.

OK, this is a good start: It is good to acknowledge right up front that readers might not quite believe that a sentient human being is somehow against more jobs.

But you expect that maybe Fisher is then going to do a bait-and-switch of some kind: He says he's against jobs, but what he really means is that he is for some other mind-blowing kind of employment that's not exactly a "job" as we commonly think of the term. Like being a financial advisor, say. Or maybe Fisher is sort of like a Situationist, somebody who believes the entire social construct of "work" is a sham that keeps people from ever truly enjoying life. Fine, sounds good.

But, no, what Fisher means is that he really, really can't stand jobs, or people who want them, or people who want to create them:

"Throughout 2012 we heard politicians and pundits of all stripes yammering endlessly on the need for job growth—that we don’t have enough jobs," he continues. "It’s pure rubbish."

Oooo...k?

Jobs, Fisher explains, are actually signs of weakness in the economy. Jobs mean we can't produce stuff without human beings lousing up the place, instead of nice, clean robots, which are not constantly pestering you for health care and maternity leave and breaks. The greater our economy's productivity, the less we need of such nuisances.
"In the long run we will all benefit," Fisher says, by nobody having any jobs any more, forever. He then goes on to extol the virtues of investing in a handful of companies he says will be top-notch at destroying jobs, including Anheuser-Busch InBev and Walmart.

OMG! What kind of monsters have the repubs unleashed?

Bullshit. A guns SOLE purpose is to kill.

Your favorite line is, "No one cares what you think, idiot!"
-so it's safe to say that you think your opinion is more valuable than that of others. Therefore, I repeat, you should get off that horse before it drops you on your face, like it did on Nov 6th.

I don't much feel like pissing off, so I think I'll stay.

Ummmm.. NO.

There is nothing defensive about a gun. They are all ATTACK. They are made and used for offense. "Defense" on the other hand, is resistance against an attack. Defense is protection, something that STOPS an attack. Protection is a bullet-proof vest, or mace, or a security system. A gun is not defense.

You should probably be organizing your guns.
At any moment, someone could try to steal your "stuff". You'll wanna be ready when they do!

And remember to always store your ammo alphabetically. This should help with timing.
