JUST LIKE A SOCIALIST … PROPOSES IGNORANT SOCIALIST JOBS PROGRAM WHEN 14 STATES HAVE RECORDED RECORD ALL-TIME LOW UNEMPLOYMENT RATES …
As reported at The Hill, socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of The People’s Republic of Vermont has announced a federal jobs proposal that would guarantee a job with at least a $15-per-hour wage and health benefits to every adult American “who wants or needs one.” UNREAL, just how would we pay for this socialist program? NOW? Jobs under the Trump administration are being created hand over fist. Capitalism seems to be working just fine. Fourteen states have recorded record low unemployment in the past year which begs the question, why would individuals need the government for a job, except to be kept dependent? If Americans want to work, they just need apply. But what else would one expect from a socialist but making individuals dependent upon government.
The senator is still in the early stages of crafting the plan, according to the Post, which would provide a job or required training for any American.
Sanders’s office has yet to release the details of the plan’s funding, but previous large-scale projects proposed by the Vermont progressive have involved ending tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and large corporations.
The Vermont senator joins two other possible 2020 contenders, Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who have also expressed support for similar proposals in recent weeks.
“The goal is to eliminate working poverty and involuntary unemployment altogether,” Darrick Hamilton, an economist at The New School, told the Post.
Maybe Bernie and his socialist friends might want to take a look at the failed Finland experiment … Finland’s basic income trial falls flat. This is what socialism looks like, failure.
The Finnish government has decided not to expand a limited trial in paying people a basic income, which has drawn much international interest.
Currently 2,000 unemployed Finns are receiving a flat monthly payment of €560 (£490; $685) as basic income.
“The eagerness of the government is evaporating. They rejected extra funding [for it],” said Olli Kangas, one of the experiment’s designers.
Some see basic income as a way to get unemployed people into temporary jobs.
The argument is that, if paid universally, basic income would provide a guaranteed safety net. That would help to address insecurities associated with the “gig” economy, where workers do not have staff contracts.
Supporters say basic income would boost mobility in the labour market as people would still have an income between jobs.
Finland’s two-year pilot scheme started in January 2017, making it the first European country to test an unconditional basic income. The 2,000 participants – all unemployed – were chosen randomly.
But it will not be extended after this year, as the government is now examining other schemes for reforming the Finnish social security system.
Sen. Durbin Asks Facebook CEO Zuckerberg If He Would Be Comfortable Providing the Name of the Hotel He Stayed in Last Night in Brilliant Privacy Question (VIDEO)
I HAVE TO GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE … DEMOCRAT SENATOR DURBIN NAILED ZUCKERBERG AND PROVIDED BRILLIANT CONTEXT TO THE FACEBOOK PRIVACY DILEMMA.
During yesterday’s Facebook hearing before a joint Senate committee, Democrat Senator Dick Durbin asked a very interesting set of questions that drew laughs but were at the heart of the user information sharing problem that Facebook faces. Durbin asked whether Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg would be comfortable in sharing the name of the hotel he stayed in last night. Or whether he would tell us who he privately messaged this week online. Zuckerberg responded with a no on both questions. Then Durbin nailed him with the zinger, “I think that might be what this is all about, your right to privacy, the limits of your right to privacy and how much you give away.”
“Mr. Zuckerberg, would you be comfortable sharing with us the name of the hotel you stayed in last night?” Durbin asked at the joint session of the Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees.
Zuckerberg did not answer right away. After the awkward pause, Zuckerberg said, “Uh … no.”
The hearing room erupted in laughter and Zuckerberg himself smiled as if he, too, realized how Durbin just nailed him.
Durbin, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee continued, “If you have messaged anybody this week, would you share with us the names of the people you’ve messaged?
Zuckerberg replied, “Senator, no, I would probably not choose to do that publicly here.”
Said Durbin, “I think that might be what this is all about, your right to privacy, the limits of your right to privacy and how much you give away in modern America in the name of quote connecting people around the world.”
Parkland Student Turned Anti-Gun Activist David Hogg is Now Criticizing War Hero and Brain Cancer Survivor Sen. John McCain … “Why do you take so much money from the NRA?”
HOGG WILD, THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU EMBOLDEN THE LEFT …
So now it is okay for David “camera” Hogg to insult war heroes like Arizona Sen. John McCain? Hogg, Parkland shooting survivor who has become a high-profile anti-gun, anti-NRA, far LEFT advocate following the February 14 mass murder of 17 people, on Friday turned his attention to Sen. John McCain. He is the top recipient of National Rifle Association money in Congress. Hogg asked,”Why do you take so much money from the NRA?” Maybe it should be asked where Hogg and his anti-gun student advocates get their money from? So let;s understand this, Hogg, who has done nothing in his life thinks he has the right to question a war hero like John McCain? Really? Hmm, so its ok for Hogg to go after the 81 year old McCain who is currently battling a deadly form of brain cancer, called glioblastoma.
David Hogg, the Parkland shooting survivor who has become a high-profile gun-reform advocate after the Feb. 14 mass murder of 17 people, on Friday turned his attention to Sen. John McCain,the top recipient of National Rifle Association money in Congress.”Why do you take so much money from the NRA?” Hogg, 17, asked in a reply to a McCain Twitter message about the Phoenix-area “Rio Reimagined” redevelopment project that was launched Friday.
McCain’s office could not immediately be reached for comment, and McCain had not responded to Hogg’s question on Twitter.
McCain, a six-term Arizona Republican who was the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, is the No. 1 recipient of NRA money among current members of Congress, according to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics.
Throughout his long career in politics, including the 2008 presidential race, McCain has gotten a $7.7 million boost from the NRA, the non-partisan center found.
McCain, 81, is now battling a deadly form of brain cancer called glioblastoma. McCain’s health has kept him in Arizona since before Christmas and it is unclear when he will return to Capitol Hill. He is not expected to seek a seventh Senate term in 2022.
This is what happens when you embolden those with no concept of anything. More high school stiudents are killed in automobiles ever year. Maybe Hogg should question those getting money from AAA?
Socialist Bernie Sanders Blames Crooked Hillary Clinton For Hiding Russian Meddling InfoDuring 2016 Democrat Primaries
IT WOULD APPEAR THERE IS DISHARMONY ON THE LEFT …
It would appear there is some friction between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders following last week’s Mueller indictment of 13 Russians operating on line to meddle in the 2016 presidential election. The indictment showed these Russian trolls were also supporting Hillary’s Democrat rival, Bernie Sanders. Oops. Sen. Bernie Sanders (Socialist – VT) said Wednesday that he did not know at the time that Russian trolls promoted his 2016 presidential campaign and wondered why Hillary Clinton’s team did not do more to tell voters about the extent of Russia’s election interference. Gee Bernie, crooked Hillary also did not tell you she was colluding with the DNC against you as well. Maybe this is why so many of your supporters were so disappointed when you actually lowered yourself and supported Hillary’s campaign.
“If he was aware that Russians were trying to promote him and divide Democrats against Mrs. Clinton, why did he not communicate this to his supporters?” the listener asked Sanders.
“This was not supporting me any more than they were supporting groups like Black Lives Matter that are fighting for social justice,” Sanders said.
“I did not know that Russian bots were promoting my campaign,” Sanders added. “Russians bots were not promoting my campaign. What we found out is that in April and May, it appeared that there were lots of strange things happening, attacking Hillary Clinton.”
The interviewer asked Sanders why he and his campaign did not tell his supporters about Russian interference if they knew Moscow was meddling to sow divisions.
“I would say that the real question to be asked is what was the Clinton campaign—they had more information about this than we did, and at this point, we were working with them,” he responded.
“So did the Clinton campaign say, ‘Don’t talk about this?’” the interviewer asked.
“No, of course not, but who do you think would be raising that issue?” Sanders said.
“I could see a world in which Mrs. Clinton said, ‘It’s the Russians,’ and Sanders supporters say, ‘Oh, that’s baloney,’ but if Sanders says it, they say, ‘OK,’” his interviewer said.
“We knew what we knew when we knew it, and that’s about all that I can say,” Sanders said.
The Double Standard & Hypocrisy of the LEFT … President Trump Calls for Parade and Democrats Scoff … Yet Schumer Did the Sane thing in 2014 and Crickets from the MSM (VIDEO)
OH THE NASTY HYPOCRISY OF DEMOCRATS AND THEIR FAR LEFT MSM MOUTH PIECES …
Just curious, what is wrong with a little patriotism? In a January 18, 2018 meeting President Donald Trump expressed his wish to hold a military parade like the one he witnessed in France with President Macron on Bastille Day. The NY Times reported that Mr. Trump said he told President Emmanuel Macron of France that he was considering the idea of a similar spectacle in the United States. But the liberal MSM appears to be against such a parade. However, as you will learn to borrow a phrase from John Kerry … The LEFT for for it before they were against it.
Liberal media makes fun of Trump’s military plan
However, Democrats and their liberal media hacks scoffed and made fun of the idea making reference to Trump as a dictator. On MSNBC’s the Morning Schmo, Mika and Joe said that countries like the Soviet Union and North Korea do things like this. They called it autocratic, among other derogatory things. Imagine that. But I thought liberals like the French?
BUT THE LIBERAL MEDIA HAD NO ISSUES WHEN DEMOCRAT SENATOR CHUCKY SCHUMER OF NEW YORK CALLED FOR A MILITARY PARADE IN 2014. Where was the criticism and outrage from the LEFT then? It all goes back to the LEFT’s never ending attacks on President Trump no matter what. Even when the LEFT has said the same thing. What, does the Left not understand there is this thing called Google and other search engines that record all that they say and folks that take the time to find out the truth? Once again Schumer and the LEFT look like the frauds they truly are.
Chuck Schumer calling for a Military Parade in 2014
Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier called Trump’s idea of a military parade “authoritarian,” while Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse compared the practice to something that would be done by North Korea.
But in 2014, Schumer suggested that New York’s Ticker Tape Parade be used to honor the military.
“Now as military operations in Afghanistan draw to a close, some are calling for the Ticker Tape Parade to honor those who fought in the war on terror,” a reporter explained in a video posted to YouTube.
“After all, these men risked their lives to protect us,” Schumer said at the time. “They experienced terrible trial and tragedy along the way.”
