Steve Jobs had warned president Obama on over-regulation of economy

The Huffington Post reports Friday about a clandestine meeting some time ago between Steve Jobs and President Obama, link here

Jobs reportedly told Obama that Obama would be a one-term president. The problem is – poetically – jobs.  Jobs echoed Donald Trump’s idea that China, an authoritarian, one-party state, is beating us to a pulp, and that regulations make it too hard to do manufacturing or build factories in the US.  Jobs  was also critical of the union culture that permeates the teaching field and probably drives away people who should become teachers.

Jobs temporarily rejected invasive surgery that could have prolonged his life. He did have it, but it was too late.  Jobs expected a relatively shorter life in which to accomplish things.

Remember, the media reported that Obama met with many Silicon Valley executives earlier this year.  Obama probably discussed the way Internet companies could affect the political situation in the middle east.  The “no anonymity” policies may hinder the ability of future legitimate protests to function. 

Jobs's comments certainly stand in marked contrast to the "Occupy Wall Street" protests.

Here's an earlier story from "Shanghai List" about Trump's comments that China is our enemy.
