iPad blamed as a job killer: a good headline that misses the full message

Apr 17, 2011 | Posted by: Iria | Full story: www.examiner.com

The iPad has been credited for a number of positive things, but now the magical device is receiving blame. On Friday, Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-IL) said to Congress that the iPad (and presumably, the iPad 2) is killing U.S. jobs.

Local companies (just the "Silicon Valley 150") here, including Apple, grossed $544 billion and netted $85 billion in 2010 reported today. That's up more than 20%, and it will be up more than another 20% in the 2011 report. Now back to your whining about illegal Mexicans in California.

Okay....

How much of that $10 billion went back into the state's economy while illegal aliens suck up an estimated $4.5 billion dollars a year of the state’s budget for their medical, schooling and other benefit costs?

Add to that the California share of the $10 Billion illegals send back to Mexico each year and I can damned sure understand why California is bankrupt.

Back to you.

I-Pads oh give me a break! Here is where we are losing millions of jobs and billions n revenue. Nickels and dimes they bravely seek to amend as they ignore the elephant..
How about Birth certificate for corporations that come to our country and set up their plants and put out a sign for employment with a disclosure that "NO AMEICANS NEED APPLY"!
Robert's Court ruling also requires no disclosure! Russian, Chinese, Iranians, Indians and so forth now have avenue to our politics. Incorporation of corporatist to politics was experimented with, over in Europe with disastrous results.
Have we not regressed enough? We provide Welfare Health Care to our leaders that is denied to us. We pay for their taxes through the corporations entitlements tax refund scenario.[GE, Shell, Exxon, Coal, Agriculture and so on.] Now we are to be saddled with immigration of corporatism? Is this deliberate sabotage against Americans?
Corporatism now invading our politics. Rick Scott Fl., to Walker in Wisconsin and all in between. Unions to be dismantled, as is our safety nets, to accommodates the new corporatist on our shores. They can be identified by the sign out front of their plants. "No American Need Apply" Millions of employment sold out to foreign corporatist. They will in turn support their benefactors. Dan Rather summed it up. http://www.youtube.com/watch , Then go to search bar and seek "Dan Rather Reports, Excerpt From Visa Loophole" Explore his other excerpts on the issue. I like the “Map” that shows the extent and locations of all these foreign corporatist.

Apple paid taxes and hired people in California. Illegals pay no taxes but, consume services and now murder 3500 people per year in the US.

I think race pimps like Jesse Jackson Sr. have probably killed many American jobs.
Why won't he do a news story on his daddy?

This goes to show you that it is not just about loosing jobs but loosing people. Technology makes it easier to do something then you don't need as many people as you did a little while ago.

This has been going on for centuries. It is not a problem it is a symptom of progress.

The moral is that we don't need as many librarians and publishers so don't give birth to any. Of course as usual we will prepare for what happened yesterday instead of what is going to happen tomorrow then when yesterday does not come tomorrow we will try to get someone to pay for the mistake.

Help me help me, I gave birth to too many factory workers and we don't have the factories, someone please pay for my children. Its all about the children we much help the children.

Many books are printed in China and Borders is just a retailer. Even in the digital age, the news and publishing industries themselves arn't going away. The iPad is the physical medium that contains the content, and no one in the US is interested in reading content created in China, with the exception of video games.
