.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Hey Kathy, get us some photos from over there! 

Never been to Japan, but I kind of imagine their well run society a bit like that of a bee hive.

... This is the ramblings of an illiterate.

If you think the idea of PC Western enviromentalist abeting dictators, or at least providing those despots plausable deniability while said dictators wage a war of starvation against their own population is the ramblings of an illerate, then my friend I have a dozen choice words for you.  "See Jane jump.  Jump Jane jump.  See Spot run.  Run Spot run"  Now please turn to page two for your next lession.

Go to the Bureau of Labor Statistics website. Find the number of tellers working for the first year of ATMs (1984) and then the number of tellers working for the last available data. You will see that the number of tellers has increased. This does not take into account the number of programmers, manufacturers, maintenance people, or even the people needed to fill the machine.


While you're there do a check to see how many individual band branches there were in 1984 verses how many there are in 2011.  If it's anything like my neighborhood, which had 3 banks in 1984 and over 10 in 2011, I'd say that there are less tellers per bank now than there were way back when, that means a net loss of jobs if you the simple math you're advocating.
Life is a school.  What have you learned?   :brian:      The greatest danger to our society is apathy, vote in every election!
