..it's coming people - basic income..
« on: April 24, 2018, 06:51:24 AM »
.
and you'll be paying for it

I heard a report that the mayor of stockton, kalifornia will be instigating this "give away" (basic income) - stockton, you may recall, filed for bankruptcy a couple of years ago.....well bankruptcy must be a good thing/or at least a profitable thing ( :thumbsdown:) 'cause of all the "benefits" of bankruptcy they're now able to give out "free money" to those doing nothing to earn it - free money, free money folks (perhaps the country's teacher's unions can muscle in on some of that.....)

then I came across this article about a similar program that Finland has been running for the past 2 years :

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/apr/23/finland-to-end-basic-income-trial-after-two-years

I shake my head/roll my eyes at the part that reads....."whether an unconditional payment might reduce anxiety among recipients"..... isn't that why people take drugs or drink heavily ?  "might reduce anxiety" - what b.s. !

another part of the Finland article I find humorous is the assumption that "the right" likes the program....."which sees it as a possible route to a leaner, less bureaucratic welfare system"

we all know what the world is coming to - and that makes me sad

Come on Tango, where is your heart?  I believe everyone in need should be signed up for this program, including homeless in:
Stockton,
Los Angeles,
All Californians,
all Somalis, Afghanis, Pakistanis,
Ignorant trolls,
Everyone else on the internet,et al.
Every person imagined by the downtrodden,
The rest of the world.
Isnít there something we can do to help increase the enrollment in the Stockton free money giveaway quickly?
(And drive them into bankruptcy!!!)

;)

Same philosophy the Ag Department had during the Obama Administration.  They were out there actively trying to increase the enrollment in the Food Stamp program.  In fact, they were bragging about how much of an increase they had successfully accomplished (rather than trying to get people off the rolls and become self-sufficient again).  Fortunately I think this trend has been reversed during Trumpís Administration. 
People becoming ďdependentĒ on what the government doles out (welfare-wise) is just a form of slavery they fail to recognize as such.  What the government gives out, the government can take away!

Screw Stockton, Bernie has a better plan
"A Federal job for everyone that "wants one or needs" one plus health benefits."

I asked our two mutts and both want a job and health care.  So does Terry our turtle, and Bouncer, the bunny that lives in the bushes.
Hurry Bernie, how do I sign them up?  You think doctors are expensive, $120 just to get the Veterinarian to greet you.

My grandson is a HUGE Bernie supporter/fan.

He told me he does not like to work.
He prefers to eat cereal and watch cartoons.

He is 6.
In Texas, "He needed killin' " is a defense to prosecution.

I suggest he move to Austin or San Francisco in 12 years. They understand that attitude.
