Do you also object to the headline, as robots aren't "taking" jobs, they're just being given jobs that used to belong to humans?
That's actually what's happening though. In a free market environment, you can't really get angry at the competition for being able to provide a similar service at a reduced price. Consumers will go where they are able to get the best product at the best price. Currently the cheapest/best product is being made by people in Asia, eventually it will be robots. If you don't want to get priced out of the market, make a better product, or a significantly cheaper one, or have your government regulate the industry so that it's too expensive to buy products that are made in Asia/Robotland.
Has the bar for crazy really dropped so low?
Have you been watching the election coverage? It has been lowered right about to the point where wingnuts are considered normal. I really miss the days when the worst thing you could say about conservatives was that they are boring and greedy.
