The Automat was actually as labor intensive as any conventional diner or everyday restaurant of it's heyday. The food was prepared in a conventional kitchen and placed into the slots. No waitresses, but high volume made up the difference. (While not a comprehensive look, the 1962 film That Touch of Mink gives a decent glimpse at the operation). So, the Automat was mostly killed by (wait for it...) the minimum wage.

Krugman IS a robot. All he ever disgorges are variations on the Keynesian nostrums he was programmed with in college.
"...make a difference by DOING WHAT IS RIGHT and not just taking care of themselves." PAGING ADAM SMITH. PHONE CALL FOR ADAM SMITH. (Apparently you've never heard of the phrase he coined, "the invisible hand".
This is fairly typical of the profoundly unaware "thinking" most leftists engage in, Everybody fits into a neat pigeonhole of some sort or another, and their ideas and attitudes are the "correct" ones.

The nicey-nice version. In the original Grimm's, the sheep got eaten. So did the shepherd boy.
Must also eliminate early voting, just gives more time for the cheaters to work.
The more accurate term would be "mal-informed voter". The media reports the lies they support as accurate, and (at best) totally ignore any opposing views, while pretending to objectivity. They are deliberately out to "change the world"- if not for the way they are dragging the rest of us down with them, I would wish for them to receive the full consequences of that which they seek.
Or more likely, someone who doesn't have a paper trail, and can lie convincingly enough to fool the Republican Senators into thinking they'll respect the law...
Perhaps you made a Freudian slip towards "lesion"?
