When Barack Obama joined Silicon Valley’s top luminaries for dinner in California last February, each guest was asked to come with a question for the president.


But as Steven P. Jobs of Apple spoke, President Obama interrupted with an inquiry of his own: what would it take to make iPhones in the United States?

Not long ago, Apple boasted that its products were made in America. Today, few are. Almost all of the 70 million iPhones, 30 million iPads and 59 million other products Apple sold last year were manufactured overseas.

Why can’t that work come home? Mr. Obama asked.

Mr. Jobs’s reply was unambiguous. “Those jobs aren’t coming back,” he said, according to another dinner guest.

The president’s question touched upon a central conviction at Apple. It isn’t just that workers are cheaper abroad. Rather, Apple’s executives believe the vast scale of overseas factories as well as the flexibility, diligence and industrial skills of foreign workers have so outpaced their American counterparts that “Made in the U.S.A.” is no longer a viable option for most Apple products.

Yesterday morning on National Proletarian Radio, the Voice of International Socialism and Stupidity, I heard some college students interviewed about the election. I pass over in silence exactly how much deep judgment a 21 year old can have, and get to the point. One girl said she was voting for OBAMA because he could create jobs. Could y'all hear me groan?

You cannot have an intelligent conversation with a person who believes that politicians create jobs. They simply don't know enough to form the words. PRODUCERS create jobs, governments consume resources. Any money government spends must by inflating or taxing come first from producers, curtailing their resources, causing them to consume less, and, obviously, employ fewer workers.

Maybe the government is putting something in the water that makes people believe stupid ideas really will work: stupidium, the last and dumbest element.
