    Hi, All!

    I've been reading your threads about Obama, the parties, and the economy with great interest.

    Yes, unemployment is a problem... for people. But robots seem to be fully employed... including the roomba robot which will clean your floors.

    What do you all think about robotic workers, and how will they affect our economy?

    Makes you wonder if a future like WALL E and Battlestar Galactica aren't that far fetched....doesn't it.

    Wealth redistribution or sharing does not cause debt. Overspending causes debt. Economics 101

    Think: profit sharing and commonly held stock in national corporation controlling the production and manufacturing of said robots, with an elected Board of chairpersons responsible for the management thereof
