    Now imagine what it will be like when your average Mickey Ds is mostly using ROBOTICS to man it operations.

    Think I'm kidding?

    That is the problem that my son's generation is REALLY facing, folks.

    Human labor is very raidly becoming outdated as work horses became.

    And while that is already so obvious in low skilled jobs (and many of you feel safe from that problem) I'm here to tell you that MOST of us, regardless of how complex your job is threatened by this trend.

    The replacement of human labor by technology is a backing up the employment food chain.

    This developing techology is actually much more threatening to most Americans' economic solvency (read jobs) than FREE TRADE which I bitch about all the time.

    Old Mcdonald had a plan, C-E-C-E-O
    And in his plan he had wage slaves, C-E-C-E-O
    With a "yassir" here and a "yassir" there
    Here a "yassir" there a "yassir"
    Everywhere a "yassir"
    Old Mcdonald had a plan, C-E-C-E-O
