    J. Jackson is a smart man. He is just finding new ways to make money. He got rich off of hate that he creates between the races

    I could not agree more.

    We should avoid politics, but I just have to add:

    LOL at J. Jackson, professional nutter.

    He is right...just he forgot to mention it's called.....progress!! CDs out tape manufacturers out of business. Cars put a lot of horse shoeers and buggy manufacturers out of business. Should we never move forward for fear of someone losing a job? Btw, borders was obsolete LONF before the iPad came out!!

    No, actually he does have one. In fact he was in Washington not to long ago bragging on it. Probably some of his biggest contributors own bookstores. That is why he was saying the ipad was causing us to loose so many jobs. People buying books, magazines and newspapers on their Klara and not in the bookstore. I guess he just can't make up his mind as to what side of the fence to sit on...

    Sorry, I meant "buying on their iPads", not their "Klara". That's what I get for not checking the checker.. :)

    He blames the iPad, but he owns one. He (apparently) was on the House Floor recently promoting them, but he blames them. He does not blame the retail stores for closing and putting everything online, but he blames iPad.

    I guess Real Clear Politics ain't so real clear after all.

    As for the job loss, it always seems to happen when new technology arrives. Like the seamstress that lost a job because of Mr. Singer's invention; forgetting the jobs that were created because those job killing sewing machines need to be manufactured, sold, and repaired. Or the thousands of programmers developing apps for the iPad able to make a few dollars, or accessory makers and sellers.

    As I recall, some time ago he gave some talk or speech about about green this and that. Bob thinks the green people would love us to stop killing trees or using those ever so horrible automobiles to go to the store for this and that.

    Thanks iPad, you are saving the world from environmental and ecological disaster.

    Seems to me that the idea of going paperless has been a long time goal for many decades and the idea that newspapers wanted to abolish printing was a long term goal of many media giants. Long before the iPad arrived.

    He also forgets that one could shop online before the iPad arrived.

    Mr. Jackson is a nobody and I think we would be amazed at some of the things that are said on the House Floor that are immediately dismissible.

    I blame the iPad for simplifying one part of my life and adding five hundred dollar bills to Apple's coffers.

    Bob
