Tim Cook: Out-of-Touch Silicon Valley Moron

This remark by Cook tells you everything you need to know about "out-of-touch" as it applies to Silicon Valley morons.

“It’s skill,” Apple CEO Tim Cook said in response to a question on “60 Minutes” Sunday from Charlie Rose as to why the company’s products are made in China.

Rose clearly wasn’t buying it. “They have more skills than American workers? They have more skills than German Workers?” he pressed.

“The U.S., over time, began to stop having as many vocational kind of skills,” Cook explained. “I mean, you can take every tool and die maker in the United States and probably put them in a room that we’re currently sitting in. In China, you would have to have multiple football fields.

Maybe Timmy the Twit should get out more, in the Midwest. 

Paul Ryan would be happy to host him in his gated & guarded Janesville manse, I'm sure.  Then Timmy could meet a few tool-and-die makers who used to work for GM, or Case, if Paulie Boy lets them in.

So where are the high school shop classes that are the beginning of machinists careers? He may be a little ahead of himself, but he's not wrong about where we are headed, and it's due to the everyone goes to college mentality.

1) Maybe SOME came from HS shop class. Most enter through actual work situations, apprentice, and then they are machinists.

2) All that said, what makes anyone think that it is the taxpayers' responsibility to pay for machinist training? Or automotive training? In a Conservative world, that training is the responsibility of the employer.
