Yep another one. So if what you folks say is right folks are working at fast food restaurants to make a living and that is what makes a great economy. Do you see how ridiculous you sound. I doubt it.

In my area (I live in a GOP stronghold), adults work all the FF shifts outside of the 6pm-4am time band. 6pm-about 10pm are the kids you describe. 10pm to 4am usually the 20 somethings. 4 am to 6 pm are the adults 28+

Another area where folks think they can make a living at the fast food places. Do you go eat there every day? I mean how the hell do you know who works where and when in the first place. How do you KNOW who works ALL the shifts? You got a spreadsheet from the fast food joints in the area? IMO you are flinging sheet but not a shock. Liberals lie all the time.

O.k now I'm confused. Some of you are cheering for the automation of the fast food places and I bet these are the same people who are complaining that their tax dollars are going to those lazy people who don't want to work? Hmmm, so insteead of increasing the min wage to lets say to 9-10.00 an hour and getting more people off of the governments tit some of you rather see unemployment, joblessness and crime rise? Oh, and don't forget the pockets of the CEOs get fatter

Ah yes the evil CEO's. You have been trained well. CEO's don't run Mcdonalds local business folks do. I guess you don't care though. I mean hell they only put up a million bucks to start their franchise and built it and hired folks from the community to work there. Who the hell are they to have any say in anything right?? **** on em. They are all evil right? Lord have mercy you folks are so far lost there is no return. Y

Some convenience stores like Sheetz, Wawa and Royal Farms already do this. In some parts of the country fast food workers are mostly illegal immigrants who cannot speak English. This includes most of the places like New York and New Jersey where they are striking for $15 an hour.

Here in WV its all Americans working at McDonalds and there is no talk of any striking here, nor is there any talk of strikes at Walmarts in West Virginia. People here appreciate having a job and making an honest living unlike the extortionist union in liberal states. Many of their members are Obama type Democrats and illegal immigrants. COmpared to dealing with an illegal alien whose poor English skills will mess up my order, I rather deal with a computer. Even liberals may like the new touch screens because as a negotiation and compromise to liberals and Democrats we can make the machines bilingual with a Spanish option so the illegal aliens that Obama is trying to legalize won't feel discriminated against and they won't feel pressured to adopt American culture and learn our language.

Why do you need AI? Doctors already use medical databases to diagnose and get information on how to treat patients.

There comes a point when progress requires drastic change in economic systems and government. It has happened before and it will happen again in the future. It is simply nave to believe our notion of capitalism will be in our future the way technology is increasing exponentially. It's the result of faster computers building faster computers.
