iPad fingered as job killer by Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr – Really?

Railing against government inaction to address the problems of 13 million unemployed Americans, Jackson turned his attention to Apple’s self-described magical device, one of which the congressman recently bought. Jackson said the device “is now probably responsible for eliminating thousands of American jobs.”

I haven’t researched this story more – maybe there’s more context to it, but if it holds, are you kidding me?  Now we have liberals and members of Congress complaining about incredible new innovations destroying jobs?  How backward and regressive is this?  While the iPad might have destroyed jobs at Borders, it’s created thousands of jobs in high tech and IT fields.

Creative Destruction…it’s a good thing.
