Ray Dalio had a good interview on Shane Parrish's podcast.

He discussed how technology has always disrupted businesses but people were able to adapt and move to something new. When switch networks came about phone operators could easily move to being technicians or work in other areas of service. Buggy operators could join the factory making cars. But the current wave of disruption due to software and AI is going to decimate jobs and most people will not be able to transition into being robot technicians or programming AI. And even if everyone could gain that skillset the new economy is not going to need that many people.

Leaf blowers just piss me off on so many levels. They are so loud, they consume fossil fuels needlessly, pollute the air like crazy, they blow dust everywhere, and it's all to accomplish this utterly unnecessary task! We live in a valley which already has horrible air, and whenever I see those knuckleheads out there with their leaf blowers, kicking up these huge clouds of dust and crap, it just makes me crazy! We also have really hard, dry, most clay soil, and all those leaves, sticks, and grass clippings would be so very helpful for putting organic matter back into the soil. Not to mention every time they blow over bare ground, they are blowing away all the nutrient rich topsoil. But, at least with don't have to deal with those horrible, unsightly leaves on our lawns reminding us that we live in a (semi)natural environment.

As I understand it, there is a similar problem with chainsaws. I have been told that a well-sharpened hand-saw will do better work than a chainsaw.

I think the issue is that with both the rake and the hand saw, to be good at them, one needs patience and time to learn, and we aren't willing to give people time to learn things when there is profit they need to be making for others.

Using a rake or pitchfork to collect leaves is faster, greener and easier than the blower. Honestly I don't know why the blower exist while a rake can get shit done so much quicker. The awesome part about a rake is you can use recycled part to make one from very simple stuff, like I recently made one for my mother from spare PVC and wood.

Relaxed, dude, I got banned there many many times for saying the truth.

America loves rapists and Islamic serial artistic killers who are rich and thus a good ally, as all knows.

Rape is nothing and coward USA would let communist rapist free, which is often banned to speak in redd*t.

US supplied bomb that killed 40 children on Yemen school bus , with smart missiles which are smart enough to recognize and kill easy-to-kill children to show US has balls when being fucked off by hard-to-kill Russians.

​Slow coward failure America likes to make the war as long as possible, already said far far more earlier and banned.

Is slow coward USA doing the same thing that USA just waits a few months until China yuan is down 10% to $, then dares to tax 10% on $505 billions, and thus gets 10%-10%=0% in real trade? After all, USA has loved China communists and their ZTE for decades. My English is so bad?

​1, USA shouts that USA would put tariff on $500 billion goods made in China to change anti-freedom trade with China.

2, China devalues (downs) its currency yuan 10% to USA currency $.

3, then USA dares to really put tariff 10%, and gets nothing in real trade because 10%-10%=0%, which means that prices of goods made in China are decreased 10% by means of China government devaluing yuan 10%, and prices of goods made in China are increased 10% by meanings of USA government putting tariff 10% on all, and thus prices in trade not changed in total.

​4, ZTE is always controlled by China communists, and sells anti-freedom system to Iran and Korea, and banned by USA and then supported by USA at last.

Just the first sentence I said, if you cannot read more sentences. "Coward USA is too slow, which would make the war last long and thus make USA fail eventually."

Coward USA is too slow, which would make the war last long and make USA fail. China yuan is already down 4% to USA dollar. So the real tariff in trade would be 10%-4%*500/200=0% for the new 10% tariff on $200 billions of China goods.

Notice: $500 billions is the minimal of goods made in China exported to USA. So China yuan downing (or devaluation of China currency to America currency, now about 4% down) affects more than $500 billions goods exported to USA, but new tariffs expected only affects $200 billions goods exported to USA. So the result of the new tariffs on the whole trade of goods made in China but exported to America here is only 10%-4%*500/200=0%.

Maybe USA can keep torturing Children (news about immigrants) and infants (news about USA believing cow milk is much better than mother milk or breast milk for infants), and make China communists keep stealing $375 billions and millions of American jobs from USA every year, since all these would make America great again.

Is USA a coward failure only shouting 200 billion and shouting 500 billion with doing nothing real while China communists have been keeping beating USA?

The simplest example in life to see the unfair robbery nature of China communists...(rob money from Chinese,rob work from American)

If you transfer money from banks not in China (for example, D) to China bank,Zero fee. But if you transfer back,that's to say, if you transfer money from China bank to banks not in China (for example,D), very high fee. That's the fairness? So, we got to know why China bank would not like fair competition with other banks, and China communists did unfair competition very well. (By the way, there is a little fact : China top four communist banks are the four biggest and richest banks all over the world. )

China bank says: If you transfer money out of mainland,for example, if you transfer money to USA , the fee is 1‰, 50¥ at least for each.And there is also tele fee,150¥ each time. And there also may be other fees. ​ So, if you are a Chinese and want to buy an American goods, you transfer 500¥ to your account outside China, and China bank just simply takes off more than 200¥ from you just because you want to buy an American goods. Moreover, if you take this American goods back to China, you may face high tax by China communists as well. So, we got to know why China goods would not like fair competition with USA goods, and China communists did unfair competition very well. (By the way, there is a little fact: China communists legally steal $375 billions and millions of American jobs from USA in 2017 by anti-freedom trade.) ​And all above here lasts for decades!

Seen in "China government has legally stolen 375.23 billions from USA in a single year..."

​Edit:I take no order from anyone. For those super Nazis, Can you and the followers read English?

​ Or you just don't want true free trade without tariffs?

Come on, Nazis and racists and communists, just ignore the truth, attack me and remove.

If no reply or late reply or this removed, blame redd&t or vo&t or the net, not blame me, because its not my control, and sometimes because "Your account has been suspended from Reddit" or "you can't reply one in 9 minutes" or "You have been banned from participating in r/***" or "You have reached your daily comment quota. Your current quota is 10 comment(s) per 24 hours." which could also be false for you did not make 10 comments a day but you still cannot reply. I just say the truth, and I don't care whether you care. And the truth existence does not depend on whether you care.
