Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. Blames iPad For American Unemployment (VIDEO)

Post by Jobless_in_Ma on Sun Apr 17, 2011 7:28 pm

On Friday, Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) addressed the United States's current unemployment crisis and claimed the iPad was "probably responsible for eliminating thousands of American jobs."

Jackson, himself an iPad owner, expanded on his statement by pointing to the recent bankruptcy of Borders Books.

"Why do you need to go to Borders anymore? Why do you need to go to Barnes and Noble? Just buy an iPad and download your book, download your newspaper, download your magazine," the Congressman said.

He does have a point. Look at all the book stores that have closed. The same thing happened to newpapers when the internet became readily available.

He needs a reality check & what the real reasons are. I found the headline funny for some strange reason.

The last paragraph made sense though.
