    Obama on ATMs and Unemployment Oi!


    O on ATMs - Political Punch
    » Obama: ATMs to Blame for High Unemployment - Big Government

    Our economic illiterate.
    He thinks businesses should take loans to make payroll... now this.

    Frightening Big Government pap.

    [QUOTE]
    O: other thing that happened, though, and this goes to the point you were just making, is there are some structural issues with our economy where a lot of businesses have learned to become much more efficient with a lot fewer workers.
    Z: You want people to create jobs? Then don't punish the owners. It's not difficult. You and your goons, or any goons can't get this done.

    You see it when you go to a bank and you use an ATM; you don't go to a bank teller. Or you go to the airport, and you're using a kiosk instead of checking in at the gate. So all these things have created changes in the economy, and what we have to do now
    We see whee you're gong with this. What you have to do now is set a fertile environment for Capitalism to grow. Low taxes, and get off our backs. We'll create the jobs if you let us profit from our risk, cleverness and/or pure horse **** luck.
    -- and that's what this job council is all about --
    JOB COUNCIL!!! How many have we had already? And how many trillion have your spent? JOB COUNCIL???

    is identifying where the jobs for the future are going to be;
    That ain't your job.
    how do we make sure that there's a match between what people are getting trained for and the jobs that exist;
    Ain't your job.
    how do we make sure that capital is flowing into those places with the greatest opportunity.
    Stop stealing our money... we know how, where and when to allocate money... thanks for your help, but **** off thank you, please.
    We are on the right track. The key is figuring out do we accelerate it.”
    Stop. Wrong track. No acceleration. Halt!!! Go in other direction.
    The man is dangerous.

    When I heard this, I almost ran off the road, I was laughing so hard.

    Then, he said:

    Out: We’re losing jobs to ATMs. In: We’re creating jobs via robotics « Hot Air

    Actually businesses have been taking loans to make payroll for a long time now. It's called 'capitalism'.

    No, it's called, "stupidty", and any business that borrows money to make payroll, isn't going to last very long.

    You realize that would include almost every startup.

    And, within a few months, if they are still borrowing money to make payroll, they're going to go belly up.

    Not necessarily. Many companies stay in the red for years before they start to pull a profit.

    I guess the US Government is proof you can stay in the red. Why not? No one holds them accountable.

    ATMs were merely one example of what he's talking about, and if you don't see that you're just blindly partisan. (and possibly stupid)

    Obama didn't say "ATMs caused high unemployment."
    Technology changes things. Companies can do more business with fewer workers than before. Downloadable media reduces the need for physical stores to sell that media. ATMs reduce the need for bank tellers.
