Cranks My Tractor

We are living in a time with new words and new ways of doing things.  It seems obvious that one solution to having to pay people more, provide healthcare and other benefits is “automation.”  In other words, we don’t have to provide healthcare to the robotic arm for dumping the garbage.

We all see the problem with that solution and quite possibly the solution to that problem.

Perhaps we should study what we is being demanded and what we are putting in the garbage.  We seem to be throwing out a lot of things that worked very well and are going to be left with folks with nothing to do but watch robots do their job.

I understand both sides of this equation, I am a math guy – however I am unable to solve it.  In the meantime, “Do not get within five feet of my toter.”
