Flippy The Burger-Flipping Robot
Just Destroyed The Case For
Minimum-Wage Hikes

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Wages: On Monday, CaliBurger started its newest "employee," a learning robot that can cook 150 hamburgers an hour. Flippy doesn´t just flip hamburgers, he exposes why raising the minimum-wage hurts workers. Flippy, built my Miso Robotics, uses thermal imaging to tell it precisely when to flip each patty, allowing for more or less perfect consistency. And it supposedly will get smarter the more burgers it flips, and various attachments will eventually let it handle other aspects of the burger-making process. The fact that CaliBurger decided to use its Pasadena, Calif., restaurant to launch Flippy is instructive. In less than three

Ask auto workers about robotics. They priced themselves out of the job market and robots filled the gap.

As technology improves it gets cheaper and more capable. How long before upper income households can have a robot maid that can clean up and do other basic chores? That will trickle down to the middle class. Robots don´t get sick, are easily swapped out if they malfunction, don´t ask for raises, do their jobs consistently, and overall beat out the lower level workers they replace. The only thing holding them back is capability and cost, both of which will be solved in time.

Asimov´s Three Laws of Robotics:

A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

Ask anyone who has a robot vacuum and they will tell you it has helped them a lot. My daughter and her family have two people with long hair, a dog and a cat. I gave her a robot vacuum for Christmas and she loves it. It hasn´t totally replaced her ordinary vacuum, but it´s helped a lot. I know they will only get better.

Recall history when the French workers tossed their shoes into the "new fangled" weaving looms. Hence the word sabotage.

I can see a bunch of hoodie wearing "bros" doing similar, all while demanding "amnesty" for their actions.

As I understand it (as far as NJ is concerned) the underlying purpose behind raising the minimum wage has been because it also raises the "prevailing wage" under which government/publc projects are funded and completed by union labor.

That pesky free market has a way of imposing reality. Make anything more expensive than the market price and something will adjust under the market pressure. Either demand drops off or businesses innovate to avoid pricing themselves out of their market niche.

The same thing happens with taxes. Wages have adjusted to the progressive tax scale. Gee wiz could that have something to do with widening the income gap...

The Volkswagon Passat plant in Tennessee is almost completely automated.

Robots are cheap in the long run. Come to work everyday. Don´t complain. Don´t worry about harassment. Don´t need "flexible" hours. Don´t join unions. don´t vote Democrat. Don´t need smoke breaks. Don´t need a raise every two weeks. Don´t aspire to be the company CEO in six months. Don´t wear yoga pants, sweat pants, or slippers to work. Don´t have sick kids. Don´t give birth. Can scan social media and work at the same time.
Do what you tell them, over and over, exactly the right way, with few mistakes.

Reworking products after a union stooge screws them up eight out of ten times to maintain "job security", costs way too much.

I could go on. So could you.

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

When he was asked how to become a columnist, Charles Krauthammer would say, with characteristic drollery, "First, you go to medical school." He did, with psychiatry as his specialty because, he said with characteristic felicity, it combined the practicality of medicine and the elegance of philosophy. But he also came to the columnist craft by accident. Because of one. It has been said that if we had to think about tying our shoes or combing our hair we would never get out of the house in the morning.

If has-been actor Peter Fonda suggesting Barron Trump be "ripped from his mother´s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles" does not horrify you with the obscene brutality of its message, nothing ever will.

Clinton Email IG Report: Why Is The

Scandal: Two agents and an attorney at the heart of the FBI´s Clinton email "investigation" expose flagrant political bias at the heart of that probe. So why won´t the FBI release their names to the public? And given what these key players said, how did the inspector general come to conclude that the "investigation" was unbiased? Were changes made to water it down? Before the Justice Department´s inspector general report came out, virulently anti-Trump texts between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page had already become public — except for a particularly troubling exchange revealed by the IG for the first time.

Popularity: President Trump can´t get a break from negative press coverage, but somehow his approval rating continues to edge upward. In fact, it´s now tied with where the "extremely popular" President Obama was at this point in his first term. The latest Gallup poll puts Trump´s job approval at 45%. That´s the highest it´s been since he took office, and it´s up from 37% at the start of the year. Although you´d barely know it from the press Trump gets, his approval number has been on a slow but relatively steady rise all year. Not only that, but Trump´s approval

I´m tired. Done in by network and cable news alike. Fried from frequenting online publications and opinion sites. Pooped in perusing breathless alerts on my devices. I´ve had it. And I´m not alone. A Pew Research study recently found that nearly 7 in 10 Americans suffer from "news fatigue" — a phenomenon even more pervasive among Republicans. The survey focused on the volume as much as the quality of the offerings. But why wouldn´t the public be emotionally expended from the anger and accusations, bullying and backbiting, "fake news" and "fact checks," insults and innuendo, posturing and protests, threats and trolling, and virtue-signaling and violent rhetoric

Upset because Facebook and Google invade your privacy? Be glad you don´t live in China. Facebook and other Western apps are banned there. The government views their openness as a threat. So the Chinese use platforms like WeChat and Alibaba. Now the Chinese government takes data from those platforms to assign all people who use them a "social credit score." In other words, the government monitors your web activity and gives you a grade. Your purchases, social interactions and political activity will determine what privileges you get.

"Antifa" is to violence what the Southern Poverty Law Center is to words. In short, it is a hate group on the left. The SPLC smears individuals and groups it differs with by labeling them as some form of "hater" -- "racist," "white supremacist," "extremist" and the like. That it is cited and even relied upon by The New York Times, Facebook, Amazon, Google, CNN and others, and that Apple gave the organization a million dollars, is testimony to the moral state of mainstream media and corporate culture in America today.

Separating Families At The Border:

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Liberals are reaching critical mass in the Democratic Party. While not strong enough to win all party contests, the left increasingly defines them. Their rise is clear over the past five presidential elections, and 2018 indicates they will be even stronger in the 2020s. The 2016 election was the latest manifestation of the left´s ascendancy in the Democratic Party. Consistently winning 40%-plus of the popular vote, Sanders rode this wave wire-to-wire. Only establishment-dominated superdelegates prevented 2016´s nomination from having to be decided on the convention floor. Liberals´ share of presidential voters has increased almost one-third since 2000. Exit polling in 2000 showed

Scandal: The long-awaited report from the Justice Department´s inspector general about the FBI´s handling of the Clinton email scandal seems to absolve the bureau of any political bias. What it really shows, however, is that the FBI — under pressure from President Obama — was just going through the motions the whole time. Most of the focus of the report in the news has been on its criticism of then FBI director James Comey. The IG says that some of his actions were "extraordinary and insubordinate" — a scathing indictment if there ever was one. It is another black mark on Comey's already badly tarnished reputation, and well

The agency wouldn´t say on Wednesday whether it had contacted the aging Oscar-winner directly.

Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City, will pour at least $80 million into Democratic campaigns for the midterm elections in an attempt to drive Republicans out of the House, according to a report Wednesday. Bloomberg, an independent who backs gun control, progressive immigration reform and efforts to fight climate change, has approved the plan to use the funds to flip the House, the New York Times reported. In a statement, Bloomberg took the “absolutely feckless” Republican leadership to task for failing to check President Trump or provide oversight of his administration. “I’ve never thought that the
