We gonna need some UBI soon.
Yeah, we really need to get that running by 1972 or '73.
The best we can expect to get out of this administration is UTI.
Urinary tract infections?

Here in the U S of A we get the elderly to do this, as it should be.

Weirdly, this dredged up a long-forgotten childhood memory.
There was a Richie Rich comic I read when I must have been about 6 or 7. Mr. Rich had an army of little robots that looked much like this except with white-gloved hands on the ends of flexible robot arms. The robots carried stacks of paper money and deposited them in various chutes that carried them to waiting robotic armored cars who distributed them throughout the vast Rich financial network. The chutes were even in the floor of a huge warehouse space, just like this.
Anyway, they thought someone was stealing a little money here & there, but it turned out the A.I. in one of the robots had gone wonky. The robot was carrying bundles of cash to a discontinued chute in an older part of the facility. Richie likened it to a mother bird instinctively feeding her babies.
Good lord, that was a stupid fucking comic book.

It's okay, everyone. They got rid of Obamacare, the real job killer.
I guess tons of people dropping dead prematurely WOULD decrease the labor supply glut.

im no marxist, but this is where seizing the means of production becomes important. when automation becomes so advanced that maintenance is trivial, its important that people still arent paying the same prices as if flesh are sorting their mail by hand.
