    Actually, these robots can be programmed to perform a variety of tasks, usually assembly line work requiring little skill. And, interestingly enough, it's not so much the illegals that are taking away jobs, but rather the push to automation. I mean really..................someone has figured out how to rent robots to companies by the hour? What's even worse, is he can get the robots to work cheaper than humans.

    When you have a lawn bot that can vacuum carpets and wash dishes, let me know.

    I would rather trust a cooking robot at McDonalds than a Mexican with HepA, B, or C who wipes his/her azz without washing their hands.

    Robots don't get Hep and they don't have azzholes.

    Robots still need robot repairmen to lube and oil them.

    When I go to McDonalds there are always hoards of customers looming around the online order kiosks while I get in the old fashioned old school counter line, order quickly, get my food, and be gone before the geeks ever get their choices entered.

    They have to keep real people there because there are old school azzholes like you BuckToothMoron and me who insist on paying with real cash to real people not with cell phone scanners to machines.

    That's the problem with robot workers - they are always having sex on the job.
