Over at Daily Kos they show how Romney appears to have hired robots to do tweets for him http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/07/2 … t-Like-Him This was noticed by a guy at Reddit. A reader there responded, "Robots are people, too."
Maybe it's true. If companies have the same rights as people, and they hire robots in China to convince people who will be hold political office, then the robots are doing the work of people.
I'm waiting for the Obama campaign response ... outsourcing to robots! There you go again.
And the idiot who made that statement is just that, an idiot.
Online net-workers use automated software to post adverts.
So, this is a moot point.
As for the Corporation having the same legal rights as an individual, that Law needs to be repealed.
I hear ya.
There's an update and someone really is posting new followers for Romney. A jump of 75,000 over night: http://140elect.com/2012-twitter-politi … followers/ Some say it's Obama people doing it.
Oh, by the way, you're making too much sense today, Cagsil. Thanks.
If 'corporations are people' then yes robots can be people too. Sorry guys, I couldn't resist that one. Seriously it is nearly impossible to create the complex thing that is a human being. Where are the emotions, greed, nastiness, envy, lust, etc. You can get my drift. Robots have a long way before they can become people although I do not rule it out entirely. LOL
I wonder who is behind this... I saw a twitter account that promises 10k followers for $50, so there are millions of people who could afford to do this on either side of the aisle.
For a long time I have been battling against this idea that robots are sentients beings however I just recently saw what I consider a disturbing documentary. Apparently when it comes to genetics we humans are moving ahead faster than I have given them credit for. According to the comments from some of the people in this documentary (I can't remember the name of the documentary now) they believed they can improve upon man better than God did. For the first time a biologist or whatever he wants to call himself' he managed to transfer the ahead of one monkey onto the body of another monkey. The head remained alive on the body for seven days before the body rejected the head.
The people in the documentary believe that now they can transplant people's bodies not only on to organisms but to mechanical mechanisms. They are talking about redefining mankind as we know it.

One of the best part of Michelle Obama speech was that it had none of the nastiness that often contaminates politics. She didn't insult Mitt or engage in petty politics. She just spoke from the heart with grace humility and class. Proud moment to be an American when you hear a speech like...

I say no! Words games can manipulate peoples minds. The Citizens United Decision by the Supreme Court gave Corporations the Rights of people. Corporations are actually straw men - pieces of paper. They can be bought and sold. If you sue a corporation the "people" may run for the hills and...

I am literally sick and tired of people who follow you, and then, when you follow them back, they promptly unfollow you. Really, people? What do you do when someone unfollows you shortly after you follow them? Do you hunt them down and unfollow them as well? Do you send them mail saying what they...

I'm concerned about his positions on many things. First of all because I have no idea where he stands, he keeps changing his positions. As a retiree I'm concerned he will follow up and eliminate social security, medicare and disability as we know it. His medicare plan would raise the cost about...
