Personally, I think he needs his very own personal Psychiatry Czar. He has problems.

This sounds like something Obama would do. He refuses to accept any responsibility for his actions cause he has a "GOD" complex.

He has never accepted any authority sucked off the American T his entire life and continues to do so, no skill set.

The impact of online travel services on bricks and mortar travel agencies was acknowledged by the the travel industry itself back in 2005: Holidaymakers are "turning their backs on the traditional high-street
travel agent in favour of booking trips online", reports sundayherald.com.


It is just one of many examples of how technology has eliminated jobs that used to exist just a few short years ago. Even PC Magazine has stopped printing magazine - you can now only subscribe online. Jobs were lost when the presses stopped.

Instead of using the information for some mindless political jousting, we should be using it to address the issue of unemployment. Both service companies and manufacturers view reduced labor expenses as a means of increasing competitiveness and profits. That doesn't mean just reducing wages, it also means reducing labor forces.

So the phenomena of decreased jobs from increased employment of technology is both real and increasing exponentially. Ignoring that fact will have the same results as one who ignores the fact of gravity as they lean over a rail.

Claiming Obama is "blaming" the internet for job losses is like a patient claiming his doctor blames McDonalds for the patient's obesity. What the doctor said was a mere observation: "you are fat because you eat six meals a day at McDonalds." What Obama said was likewise a mere observation.

It is difficult to have a rationale discussion of issues and potential solutions when so many are willing to engage in self-imposed deafness.

There is truth to what you're saying. I spent my days in the 1990's as a tech investor helping fund Internet business models. The increased speed of technology combined with the reach if the Internet gave rise to the "Killer App." A killer app not only uses technology to decrease operational costs to beat the competition but it changes the way in which that business is conducted in the future. In some cases, such as providing clinical appeals on health insurance denials (this is some of what we developed), the model raises the "disruption index." In a disruption based business model the public can use the power of technology to raise the cost of denying the health claim by automating the clinical appeal. Insurance carriers soon found that it was cheaper to approve lower level claims than fight them. Other "killer apps" were Amazon.com, ebay and Monster.com, which killed the job placement industry.

But Oblame-ya is wrong in his assessment. Changing the way industries did business gave rise to an increase in the need for hardware technology and those who could develop these new applications. Thus a new industry was born. It was a paradigm shift in the economy which ballooned and popped around 2000. Once this concept caught on, virtual businesses such as WebMD had valuations that were way out of proportion to their actual balance sheets. Simple websites became publicly traded companies and IPO's were raising billions from hungry investors. Fortunes were made and lost in a flash. We actually sold out of our own companies before the bubble burst because I didn't believe the valuations. They defied all business logic. It was a house of cards for investors who weren't technology savvy. We were fortunate enough to get out before the pop.

Companies began using the Internet (through secured Intranets), giving rise to the relocation of customer support jobs to India and China. No longer does the company have to be located in a central location. people can now work together from their home or any location, including another country where labor costs were lower.

Uh..you are far from representative of the intellectual level of the majority of people on this forum. There are plenty of anti-Obama members on this forum. The difference between most of them and you is painfully obvious.

We don't need no stinkin Newtonian Physics Knowledge. :sarcastic:

But realy he should blame Al Gore, because Al Gore created the internet and probably was Newton's Physics teacher too.

What did you say, I can't hear you. LOL!

He has one skill, Teleprompter reader master certification... He reads... Ok... I know, limited demand in the private sector...

He'll blame the internet for his 39% approval rating next... People read all that anti-Obama stuff and think it's true...

I agree...

"It is difficult to have a rationale discussion of issues and potential solutions when so many are willing to engage in self-imposed deafness."

Selective hearing... More succinctly.

Perhaps you had best come to grips with the fact that some here have no desire to read or hear what it is you have to write or say. "Only one voice shall be clear above the din!" he demanded...

Put your 2¢ in if needed... Requiring others to affirm your position and agree 100% is not required...
Rational discussions often degrade to heated debate ending with fervent disagreement. Accept it and move on...

When all else fails, blame the other guy, guys, gals, price of oil, internet, previous administration, TEA Party (terrorists according to Joe Biden and others in a private meeting), global warming, Tsunamis, and the good old Coriolis effect...

Maybe the vacation will recharge his socialist liberal batteries...
