    Uhhh, those jobs aren't going away. The printers won't have anything to do and we won't have to log as many trees but somebody has to created the ebooks.

    He is clueless.

    Ring, ring...

    Hello, congressman? This is 1993. We'd like our irrational fear back, thanks.

    Fear is what binds men into a cohesive force. Sadly.

    He's a damn disgrace...

    He sets the bar high for a new level of idiocy for the Jackson family; like father like son...

    This level of ignorance is typical for these kinds of people

    Imagine all of the scribes Gutenberg put out of work.



    It's just a fairly typical old man rant: back in my day ...!

    A moron without a clue, still is a moron.
    That's how congressmen waste our tax money. Thanks to them, Social Security is almost bankrupt, the Tobacco Industry still is alive and kicking, and tons of 'public servants' milking as much money out of the 'system'.

    To Mr. Jackson: "Take a bath, Hippie! Go get a real job, you must be a great used car salesman".

    Lol... Aging is just an external factor until the individual decides to age inside. Otherwise, you could be a kid forever!

    Oh, but he likely does. If you've seen any of his previous posts it wouldn't surprise you that that is what he means. He also agrees with Joshuarocks when he goes on anti-semitic rants, so i wouldn't put this past him.

    Didn't Amazon and then Barnes and Noble come out with electronic book-replacement technology even before the iPad? Shouldn't we lump them into any slippery-slope speechifying?

    I starting to think most State & National have zero knowledge on how "technology" or the internet work. They just trust what the lobbyist, who is gives them the most money, tells them what to think.
