I want reparations for having to live through all this bullshit.

Andrew Yang is your guy then. He wants to give reparations just for being alive!

 

Y'know, it's real sad to admit, but I bet he'd get a lot more votes if he just started referring to UBI as "Life Reparations." People would see/hear the buzz word and vote based on that alone.

This seems like my crazy theory that the plutocrats are going to use government money to pay people not to pursue true wealth and power. It’s too difficult to create a real economy where everyone has a job and purpose. Hence free money, virtual reality and synthetic drugs. Lower the price of a fictional luxury lifestyle.

Yang also says that if you're on public assistance, you know, the people who need help, then you wouldn't be eligible for more aid, ie, not his crazy UBI idea. So his plan is to keep the people on welfare, on welfare, and give the CASH AMOUNT of that welfare to people not eligible for it. For an Asian who claims he loves math, he sure sucks at math.

Well to be fair this is going to be a big problem soon. Wal-Mart and Amazon are about to take over the country Wall-E style (Fuck me for even mentioning that shit movie) and they have no problem paying people jack shit.

It absolutely will not be a problem soon. Even with our near historic low unemployment, we still have a job surplus right now. Dems are just promising as much free shit as they can to try and get (statistically low turnout) young people whoever don't understand finances or economics to vote for free shit that has no backing. Old people have nothing in their lives to do but wait to vote, that's why their numbers are so high. And by then, they already have their free shit (social security) so fuck those damned Democrats and their handouts. One group votes, the other talks a big game and doesn't.

Amazon used to pay their employees bonuses that were performance based, then, due to Sanders' interference and insistence, they raised their min wage to 15 an hour, and all those incentives to work hard went away. Now, a shitload of them make less, so some can make more. That's called Socialism.

 

Wal Mart went company wide with an 11 an hour min wage (totally fair for a nation wide company) and started offering bonuses to people that wouldn't be affected enough by the new pay increases. Their Mainstays brands are also made in the USA, creating manufacturing jobs.

 

Companies can absolutely dick people over, but the government can dick companies into dicking people over even more.

But wages are shit for many people man. Being employed doesn't mean much when you can't pay the bills.

Wages being shit is a localized issue, down to states, and in many cases, cities and municipalities. You making 15 in Ok and someone making 15 in San Fran are not the same, so you can't blanket across the whole country. In many places, 15 an hour is more than enough to buy a house, in others it isn't. Localized economies with a shared currency is exactly what we were looking for when we got away from the Articles of Confederation, and each state had their own currency. It's also what the EU is desperately trying to emulate. Interstate commerce, shared currency, localized economy.

It's incredible to watch Kellyanne Conway stick with her boss instead of standing up for her husband.  What a complete shrill.

The day I have a boss call my wife a whack job is the day I'm looking for a new job.  Not sure why her husband sticks around at this point.

I hope the whole report gets released and it says jack shit. We can then see every crazy ass radical leftists talk about how they got to Mueller.

That is my hope as well, the meltdowns so far have been amazing, especially Chris Matthews spazzing out.
