NewsHounds: They watch FOX so you don't have to.

Ah, Fox. Put the chesty young lady in the middle, vapid smile, showing a little leg, while the two flanking male power-suits are put into lock-jawed seriousness as they give you the business.

Image is from here, and NewsHounds homepage is here.

Why that particular page? With a Google Alert set "Pete Hegseth" it returns what is deemed least-common-denominator Republican tripe. Have you wondered, if able to design your version of a just world, where would you put Pete Hegseth for his life's earning of a living - a real job - not FOX presenter?

One idea, stay with Repubican values; Denton, Texas, night shift, where the boss is on record:

"We could have a restaurant that's focused on all-natural products and is much like an Eatsa, where you order on a kiosk, you pay with a credit or debit card, your order pops up, and you never see a person."

[...] Despite the financial benefits, automating employee duties isn't an easy process.

First and foremost, the technology has to work every time. For the time being, Puzder doesn't think that it's likely that any machine could take over the more nuanced kitchen work of Carl's Jr. and Hardee's.

But for more rote tasks like grilling a burger or taking an order, technology may be even more precise than human employees.

"They're always polite, they always upsell, they never take a vacation, they never show up late, there's never a slip-and-fall, or an age, sex, or race discrimination case," says Puzder of swapping employees for machines.

Yup. Fitting Hegseth's skill set and mind set. Very Republican in perspective. And Hegseth in Denton, Texas; where would be more appropriate? College Station? Yeah, there.
