    With Amazon's dedication to automating all jobs possible combined with the usual stupidity in bidding for companies, sports franchises and whatnot this does seem like a disaster waiting for a time to happen what's your guess?

    Robotics labor will eventually end up in a National Robotics Labor Income Tax to support the social safety net.

    Could be. They'll be able to buy a lot of robots with the gargantuan, permanent tax cut they were just gifted by the GOP.

    The cost of getting TenCent or Ali-Baba to set up their western hemisphere headquarters in a US state would be a lot less than Amazon 2. Babies with a non-Chinese passport do not count against the one child policy which is worth thousands per year.
