The Super Bowl or something is right now. I don’t give a fuck. I hate the Super Bowl. I hate the commercials. I hate the people who discuss them like they matter. Commercials are bullshit. More reason for computers to take the place of CEOs. What am I talking about? This:
Why do companies spend millions on research to replace workers? Why do companies spend millions and millions building huge machines to do the work of humans? Machines to take the place of bank tellers. Machines to take the place of cashiers. Machines to assemble cars. The list goes on and on.
If a company is really interested in making money and be sustainable, wouldn’t it make more sense to build robots to replace white collar workers? After all, I can’t recall a story of any person working on an assembly line, bankrupting their company. I mean, it wasn’t the janitors at Enron who cost shareholders 11 billion dollars! ENRON SCANDAL INFO CLICK HERE Did I miss something or did some laborer make Worldcom file for bankruptcy and cost shareholders close to a hundred billion dollars? WORLDCOM SCANDAL INFO CLICK HERE
Did I miss something here? Was the Great Depression the work of the wrench turners? GREAT DEPRESSION INFO CLICK HERE Oh, wait! I got one! Bernie Madoff must have been a member of IBEW and climbed telephone poles for a living! No? Damn. Another white collar, non clock punching, no callous handed, douchebag who costs people billions! MADOFF SCANDAL CLICK HERE Must be the housing market I’m thinking of. Clearly the fault of the middle class laborers! No? REAL CAUSE OF HOUSING BUBBLE CLICK HERE
So all of these things have come and some what gone. But just look at the carnage left in their path. Wouldn’t it just be way easier to create a computer that does the work of white collar workers? After all, the machine(s) will not have to be that big. Some of the machines that do the work of blue collar workers weigh tons! A machine to do the work of a white collar worker? Pretty sure it would be the size of a normal, everyday PC. Seriously. Just cram it in a broom closet. All one would have to do is program this “Virtual CEO” to do is this: USE LOGIC. That is it. If you did that, no way in hell would the ‘Virtual CEO” choose to ship jobs over seas or to replace laborers with machines. After all, the less people being paid good money in the population…the less people to buy your products.
Thats a whole lot of money being spent on people that could easily be replaced by a computer. On that same note: That is a whole lot people being paid far too little.
Oh, speaking of money. Guess how much money would be saved by replacing white collar workers with robots? Below is a graph on how much that could be saved on an average CEO. Take all those hundreds of millions saved and use it to….I don’t know? Maybe….pay workers a tad bit more!
Imagine not having to pay one person a couple hundred million dollars a year? Who may or may not run your company right into the ground! Well you can...with the "Virtual CEO" that will never be invented! Because rich people run the show. They are too busy trying to replace people who sweat for a living!
Maybe after we replace CEOs, the next step will be replacing Wall Street traders. After being replaced, I’m sure they would have no trouble finding a new job on an assembly line or perhaps as a mason. I’m sure he would be a model worker. All that energy and all. Plus I’m sure he would be a hit with his fellow workers who punch a clock and actually produce things for a living. After all, who can forget this letter from a Trader in Chicago to the people of the Occupy movement.
BE WARNED: IT REEKS OF DOUCHEBAGGERY
If the typing is too small for you on the letter…here it is:
We are Wall Street. It’s our job to make money. Whether it’s a commodity, stock, bond, or some hypothetical piece of fake paper, it doesn’t matter. We would trade baseball cards if it were profitable. I didn’t hear America complaining when the market was roaring to 14,000 and everyone’s 401k doubled every 3 years. Just like gambling, its not a problem until you lose. I’ve never heard of anyone going to Gamblers Anonymous because they won too much in Vegas.
Well now the market crapped out, & even though it has come back somewhat, the government and the average Joes are still looking for a scapegoat. God knows there has to be one for everything. Well, here we are.
Go ahead and continue to take us down, but you’re only going to hurt yourselves. What’s going to happen when we can’t find jobs on the Street anymore? Guess what: We’re going to take yours. We get up at 5am & work until 10pm or later. We’re used to not getting up to pee when we have a position. We don’t take an hour or more for a lunch break. We don’t demand a union. We don’t retire at 50 with a pension. We eat what we kill, and when the only thing left to eat is on your dinner plates, we’ll eat that.
For years teachers and other unionized labor have had us fooled. We were too busy working to notice. Do you really think that we are incapable of teaching 3rd graders and doing landscaping? We’re going to take your cushy jobs with tenure and 4 months off a year and whine just like you that we are so-o-o-o underpaid for building the youth of America. Say goodbye to your overtime, and double time and a half. I’ll be hitting grounders to the high school baseball team for $5k extra a summer, thank you very much.
So now that we’re going to be making $85k a year without upside, Joe Mainstreet is going to have his revenge, right? Wrong! Guess what: we’re going to stop buying the new 80k car, we aren’t going to leave the 35 percent tip at our business dinners anymore. No more free rides on our backs. We’re going to landscape our own back yards, wash our cars with a garden hose in our driveways. Our money was your money. You spent it. When our money dries up, so does yours.
The difference is, you lived off of it, we rejoiced in it. The Obama administration and the Democratic National Committee might get their way and knock us off the top of the pyramid, but it’s really going to hurt like hell for them when our fat a**es land directly on the middle class of America and knock them to the bottom.
We aren’t dinosaurs. We are smarter and more vicious than that, and we are going to survive. The question is, now that Obama & his administration are making Joe Mainstreet our food supply…will he? and will they?”
So next time you see no line at the self checkout: Walk away and go to a cashier. If that cashier happens to be the dick who wrote that letter to the people of Occupy? Shake his hand and tell him that you’re glad to see he is finally going to EARN his money.
