What has Uncle Flacaltenn been trying to tell you since joining USMB? That the only way to protect America's standard of labor is to make "cheap labor irrelevant?" That what the American economy needed to do was to bring the 21st manufacturing model into existence with robotics, artificial intelligience, materials and bioscience.. Think I was just bloviating? Foxconn to employ 1 million robots in 3 years - Shenzhen Post One million robots -- 1.2Mill employees -- you do the math.. Not cheap OVERSEAS robots -- the article says -- but intelligient ones. Meaning that all the experience they have with manufacturing will be inserted into the robots brains.. What were the technologies we needed to pursue? Robotics, artificial intelligience, materials and bioscience? We're gonna lose our only chance to survive economically if we don't ACT NOW!!!!! Think the Central Politburo is gonna prohibit FoxConn from implementing their evil plan in order to protect CHINESE workers? Think that once they develop the 21st manufacturing skills and processes that AMERICAN workers are gonna be relevent at all? We were warned.. It is happening.. And we are arguing about the rich and the Tea Party.. And the left won't even get to nag them about labor organizing or other economic Imperialism dogma. We're doomed if we don't wake up and start training and clearing the decks for this to happen HERE FIRST..
