*Believe it or not, Representative Jesse Jackson Jr.’s ranting about the iPad being responsible for creating unemployment in the US, kinda makes sense.

In the video below, Jackson Jr. (D-IL) is seen on the floor of the House, blaming the iPad for “eliminating thousands of jobs.” He was particularly concerned about the publishing industry.

“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.”

Ironically, last month, Jackson Jr. proposed that the U.S. government provide an iPad to every student in the nation.
