LORDS OF APATHY

The iPad is Killing the US Economy

Despite Derrick Rose's best efforts, it ain't all good in Chi Town. This week, Congressman/imbecile Jesse Jackson Jr. took to the House floor to blast the iPad as a jobs killer. Steve Jobs and the Chinese get fat while the American paper book industry crumbles. Ban the iPad! While we're at it, fuck Microsoft Word! It's putting typewriters out of business!

Under ordinary circumstances, Jesse Jr.'s complaint about the desire of some schools to use the iPad instead of traditional paper books would be merely laughable and ill-informed. However, it gets upgraded to "fucking moronic" when you remember that just last month Jesse Jr. made a speech in Congress advocating for a Constitutional amendment to guarantee a iPad to every child. Peace to everyone on the South Side who voted for this clown.

This guy is a fucking idiot... Number one; steve jobs isn't doing great, he has cancer... Number two; let's not mention the fact that text book publishers print new editions of most required text books each year, eliminating the ability to purchase books used at a cheaper price because you will be required to have the new 'updated' edition... that really has nothing to with this lame ass but the shit needs to stop...

I will say though, i never thought i'd be upset seeing a borders closing, but it happened the other day. two whole floors with empty bookshelves.. it's not because of borders i was upset, but rather the symbolism behind it, the end of print.... the dawn of reality...

agree completely with Murder Dog. what an idiot. he's probably also pissed that the American abicus industry went under so many years ago. let's rail against calculators since they put abicus builders out of work.

weird how some people who are so articulate can be such ignoramuses.
