UBI The Good, The Bad, and How I See It.

Recently on my sparse viewing of FaceBook, I saw a man who is an advocate of Modern Monetary Theory, lamenting people's love of the UBI, or Universal Basic Income; aka: Guaranteed Basic Income, Mincome, Living Stipend, etc. etc. etc. In his mind, robotics is something that we should not be concerned about for the next ten or twenty years or so. Ironically enough, his constantly advocating for a Federal Job Guarantee, is missing the mark of what he wants to see happen.

8 Rules of What?


So, I get on Facebook this very morning and I see this post. Now, under normal circumstances I would edit out the name, for the protection of one who likely means well and is grossly misinformed, or simply does not know better. This is not a normal circumstance, this was posted in a pro-Stein group, and this gentleman is running for a seat in the US Senate in the Great State of Massachusetts. Now, I have no real love for Massachusetts, or Jill Stein but this notion of the “Useful Idiot” is worse than the whole “Welfare Queen” myth.

Right or Privilege


For the OP's protection, as well as the group he is in, I have edited this screen shot of some of the most insane things I have ever read. Well, not for his protection, I just edited it so that he doesn't get “harassed” by “mentally ill liberals” and grammar nazis. For those of you who don't want to read this butchering of the English language, he feels that healthcare, food and shelter are not rights. In it he laments that the person he was debating kept repeating that those three things are rights, without presenting a legitimate argument, only that said person believes, thinks, and is convinced that these things should be rights. He also concludes that liberalism is a mental illness, but you don't have a right to get that checked out, its a privilege.
