Comment Re: Sad to see Trump... (Score 2) 381

Exactly! And, given that Foxcon is committed to nearly 100% automation and relatively low skill in their factories, these jobs will *not* pay that well. They may *appear* to pay well in Western PA, where jobs are wanting, but then China will have leverage against Trump if he tries to screw around with tariffs - China can just say, "we're leaving" and then what. Who is going to "give" - Trump, or China? China is playing Trump like the chimp that he is.

Look, China is planning to lay off MILLIONS of workers in China, to automate. They may put this factory into PA and wait for Trump to be replaced, then they will go FULL automation and WIN! To the Chinese, Trump is below "bush league" (pun, intended).

Comment Anything you say, Comrade (Score 1) 574

What you fail to note is how SUCCESSFUL gaslighting over the course of the last few years from Putins hacks AND the lying media like Brietbart have been. Either you are part of the effort (because it serves your ends), or you are willfully ignorant of it (because it serves your ends).

Read some history about Russian propaganda; Putin is GOOD at this; it's a high-level art in Russia. Don't believe me, Comrade? Here, let this guy deconstruct it for you!

Comment Requires remuneration and public service (Score 1) 212

People like this should be made to pay back every penny of damage, and then put into a MANDATORY public service program for 2 years where they spend WEEKENDS (no weekends off!) teaching kids in poor neighborhoods how to code, or some other socially redeemable task. For every weekend he misses, he has to make up two more - and there is no financial remuneration. If he does it again, jail!

Comment Can we sue the politicians if accidents happen? (Score 1) 121

Self-driving cars are still vaporware. If the idiots in Detroit put cars on the road that are not capable of perceiving ALL road variables, and thus cause deaths, the legislators who pass this bill; the Governor, and all senior automotive execs should be help *criminally* responsible.
