You can pull a couple of CBs to kill the voice, but why bother. You know it's not a reference to your flying skills or personality

Don't you just end up sitting there and watching a computer do your job?

The job of the airline pilot is to stay as close to the center of the envelope as possible.
Thats not quite correct,being in the center of the envelope is being to far behind the aircraft and it is not desirable.A jet pilot should be way ahead of the airplane and should anticipate what the airplane will do next as a reaction of your command and you should plan accordingly

Inside the cockpit its the same.This time the orchestra is not the humans but the instruments inside the cockpit and the others around you.The state of the art "auto stuff" is so dumb that it doesn't even know where it is unless you tell it .You have to be ahead of everything to make precise and timely decisions(which is the number 1 job of the pilot,flying the controls comes later)
You have to be ahead of everything to make precise and timely decisions(which is the number 1 job of the pilot,flying the controls comes later)As an example you wake up to a sunny day in Antalya,you come to the dispatch office see that its raining with very low visibility in London.Can you land there,what if you divert,how much fuel extra you need?What will you do the pax?take them to a hotel or drive then with a bus?Who will arrenge the bus?Will this effect the publicity of the airline?Do you have an handling agent on the alternate airport?who will bring the stairs?How much will this diversion cost to the company?

Does all of the above mean the Bus (or any other a/c) cannot be dispatched if the Autothrottle is not working?
