Foxconn Replacing Workers With Robots

isoTaime Re:If everyone loses their jobs... (530 comments)

The real problem with this is that our countries are run by greedy fucking bastards. When there is nothing to exchange for money (which is exchanged for food, shelter etc..), then where will the masses get their daily bread? Who will share in all the new wealth? You can bet your ass that if everything is automated, it will be to the advantage of the already rich and elite and they will share NOTHING with the rest of us. Why the hell would they? After all, THEY were the ones who paid for and built the robots. We will get nothing and it will be worse than it already is because the rich and elite won't need us human slaves anymore. In fact, it will be better for them if we all just died and stopped breathing their air, eating their food and rummaging on their land.

If you think that an autonomous future is a bright one (even though it really SHOULD be) then you are sadly mistaken. Welcome to the future where human slaves are no longer needed and no one gives a flying fuck what happens to lesser people like us because a cappuccino and a blow job can be summoned through an app while they're still wrapped in Egyptian cotton on the 18th floor of their high rise loft.

NO ONE GIVES A DAMN ABOUT YOU. YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A TEMPORARY INCONVENIENCE TO THE RICH ELITE. IF EVER THERE WAS A CHANCE FOR US TO FIGHT BACK, WE MISSED IT. KEEP THINKING THINGS WILL GET BETTER. THEY WON'T. SEE YOU ALL IN HELL...

Cops have a new game to play

isoTaime isoTaime writes  |  more than 2 years ago

isoTaime (2659889) writes "This story, although shocking (no pun intended) is a bit overdone. It is however, important stuff to be aware of...

Directly from the article, "For quite a while now the police have had a new toy to play with, the taser. Now they have turned it into a new game called “Let’s see who can tazer the most people to get them to comply.”

Editor’s note: RT has also covered this horrific incident and many other insane instances of police using tasers for fun including: “Driver in diabetic shock killed by cops with pepper spray and Tasers”, “NY cops break into Marine vet’s home and Taser him before shooting him to death”, and “Cop Tasers a waiter for fun.” However, even more disturbing is the following article, “Tasers have killed at least 500 Americans.”

The latest victim of this game was Chicago resident, Tiffany Rent, a 30-year-old pregnant woman in her 8th month of her pregnancy.

What was her crime? Was it armed robbery, terrorism, or drunk and disorderly?

No, it was parking in a handicapped spot at Walgreens. The police report says that after Rent got a ticket she tore it up and threw it at the police officer. In the course of the altercation a taser was discharged.

Rent and her boyfriend Joseph Hobbs were charged with resisting arrest and simple assault. All this took place in front of Rent’s two children, her 9 year old son and her 3 year old daughter who were in the car at the time."
