Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL), who admits to owning an iPad, blames the Apple Inc. product for "eliminating thousands of American jobs."
"A few short weeks ago I came to the House floor after having purchased an iPad and said that I happened to believe, Mr. Speaker, that at some point in time this new device, which is now probably responsible for eliminating thousands of American jobs. Now Borders is closing stores because, why do you need to go to Borders anymore? Why do you need to go to Barnes & Noble? Buy an iPad and download your newspaper, download your book, download your magazine," Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL, Chicago) said on the House floor Friday afternoon.
Ironically, it was only last month that Rep. Jackson was promoting the Apple iPad and Amazon on the House floor.

Buggy whip manufacturers are gone, dang it.
There are only two things to blame - I pods and G.W. Bush.
Jackson is as big an idiot as his old man!!
I thought just last month or so he was saying that having an ipad was a right and we should give one to every high school student.
Re your Rakim photo and quote: Where is that from? Is it real? Really Real?
Isn’t this the same dumbass that wanted a Constitutional Amendment to provide iPads for everyone? Maybe I have him mixed up with some other shining light from the CBC Braintrust ...

What happened to newspaper boys with the bags of papers on their handlebars?
Hey JJJ, you know what’s killing jobs? Clinton, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd’s “mortgage for everyone” program; Obama’s stimulus; Obama’s and the Democrats’ excessive spending; outrageous wasting of tax dollars; the massive and growing deficit; a high unemployment rate that can’t recover as business is responding to the sluggish economy; and on and on and on.
I didn't even know that he changed his name!!
Once Pop gets his Race-Baiting Ap on the market, he’ll change his tune
I believe UNIONS still require firemen on diesel freight trains. It is called “Featherbedding”.
What? Apple not hiring enough fat black guys with IQ below 80??
That’s an unfortunate headline...I was thinking Rep. Jackson was somehow implying that something to do with iPad production (stress of development, toxic chemicals) had somehow caused Steve Jobs’ cancer.
My mother still calls one of the vintage taller buildings in downtown W-S the Nissen building. It’s the one that looks vaguely like the Jefferson-Pilot building in Greensboro.
Now is this the same Jesse Jagmo who is being accused of harassing a gay guy?
