    CBS recently ran a couple reports on how automation and robots are going to probably replace over 40% of jobs in the next 20 years. This is not exactly shocking news. Every economist is saying similar things. We already see it in numerous situations like checkout lines and ordering at fast food restaurants. Nor are jobs safe that one would assume would be. There are plans to have computers “reading” X-rays and issuing reports. It’s endless.

    For their various reasons, we still get libertarians and big business, and many on the left, promoting their stale theories about mass immigration “growing the economy”. It is not 1910. We do not need more workers, but less, especially the unskilled and under-educated workers that have flooded this country and are essentially a drain on government finances.

    Wages for the middle and working classes, and their share of the economic pie, are falling and have been for many years. We’ve had three decades to test out the theory of mass immigration that we have experienced, and the only people who have come out ahead are the top 2%. By far. Exactly the opposite of the low immigration 50s, 60s, and 70s.
