Democrat Presidential Candidate Bill de Blasio Releases Plan To Confront Robots. Yes, This Is For Real.

Wow. Just wow.

Democratic presidential candidates are really trying hard to win their party’s coveted nomination, so they are pulling out all the stops, including, apparently, concocting insane plans to deal with the future robot menace threatening the existence of human jobs.

Well, that’s what New York City Mayor and presidential candidate Bill de Blasio is doing anyway.

You can’t make this stuff up.

In response to an article from Wired.com titled, “Why American Workers Need to be Protected from Automation,” de Blasio tweeted, “As President, I would issue a robot tax for corporations displacing humans, and create a federal agency to oversee automation.”

In a more detailed statement released on his website, de Blasio claimed that “current automation practices are an existential threat to our nation’s workforce that destroys good jobs and directs more and more of the profits only to the wealthiest Americans.”

In response to this alleged threat, de Blasio proposes to create a new federal agency, the Federal Automation and Worker Protection Agency (FAWPA), which would have “broad authority to regulate the widespread growth of automation and oversee its impact on working people.”

Specifically, the plan states, “Any major company seeking to increase automated operations would be required to seek a permit from FAWPA with approval conditioned on the company’s plans to protect existing workers, either by ensuring they receive new jobs with similar pay or severance packages that reflect their tenure of service to the company.”

The plan also features a plethora of tax increases, including the end of the corporate accelerated depreciation tax break, and get this, a legitimate, honest-to-goodness “robot tax” for businesses who eliminate jobs through automation to “pay the equivalent of five years worth of payroll taxes up front for each worker whose job is eliminated.”

This, ladies and gentlemen, is what socialism gone wild looks like in the 21st century. Essentially, what de Blasio is really trying to accomplish here is to make sure that businesses who switch to automation are still paying taxes as if they had human employees, which really sucks away the bottom line and ends up hurting the company gratefully.

Really, it’s an attempt to punish companies for doing something the government doesn’t like, despite the choice made being beneficial for the company and allowing them to make more profit and create more human jobs.

Pretty ridiculous stuff.

If a man as ridiculous as Joe Biden can ascend to vice president of the United States then anything is possible, kids. On Saturday, Biden told a story of the time he ran into a gang leader named “Corn Pop.” Check this out… This is BIZARRE! Here’s Joe Biden telling the story of his face-off with a gang of razor-wielding ne’er-do-wells led by a guy named ‘Corn Pop.’ https://twitter.com/EddieZipperer/status/1173196985085677569?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173196985085677569&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F09%2F15%2Fwaaaaaat-just-happened-joe-biden-spins-a-yarn-about-fighting-off-gang-led-by-a-guy-named-corn-pop-and-rofl-watch%2F From Washington Examiner: Biden said he prepared himself by wrapping a metal chain around his arm. Corn Pop was waiting by Biden’s car “with three guys and straight razors. Not a joke.” “And I looked at him, but I was smart then, I said first of all, I said when I tell you to get off the board you get off the board, and I’ll kick you out again, but I shouldn’t have called you Esther Williams, I apologize for that,” Biden said, revealing Corn Pop was stunned by the apology and decided to not attack him. Reactions: This is the weirdest story I’ve ever heard a politician tell. Not to mention it’s completely made up. Also, those kids look bored to death and ready to take a nap. https://twitter.com/MarkRipollone/status/1173200868646313984?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173200868646313984&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F09%2F15%2Fwaaaaaat-just-happened-joe-biden-spins-a-yarn-about-fighting-off-gang-led-by-a-guy-named-corn-pop-and-rofl-watch%2F The Biden campaign is now considering hiring someone to pretend to be Corn Pop, the notorious gangsta Biden confronted. https://twitter.com/danieltobin/status/1173226658364571649?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173226658364571649&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F09%2F15%2Fwaaaaaat-just-happened-joe-biden-spins-a-yarn-about-fighting-off-gang-led-by-a-guy-named-corn-pop-and-rofl-watch%2F https://twitter.com/EddieZipperer/status/1173197420915769344?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173197420915769344&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsamj-3930%2F2019%2F09%2F15%2Fwaaaaaat-just-happened-joe-biden-spins-a-yarn-about-fighting-off-gang-led-by-a-guy-named-corn-pop-and-rofl-watch%2F Good news!

Omar Just Compared Migrant Detention Centers to ‘Slave Camps In Africa During the Slave Trade’

And she’ll get away with it…

Ilhan Omar probably thinks Ilhan Omar might just be the kindest, most intelligent member of Congress. She’d be wrong. Not only is Omar a radical anti-Semite who has shown that she doesn’t love America nor Israel, but she’s also kind of a [redacted]. Check this out… WATCH: Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar compares migrant detention centers to slave camps in Africa during the slave trade. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1173023974235746304?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173023974235746304&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F432519-ilhan-omar-compares-illegal-alien-detention-centers-to-slave-camps-during-slave-trade%2F Omar will continue to say silly things so long as liberals control the mainstream media. And that doesn’t look like it’s going to change anytime soon. From RealClear Politics: Rep. Ilhan Omar addressed controversial comments about slavery, U.S. border patrol, and 9/11, and decried the “implied intent” that critics impose on her statements. “I’m only controversial because people seem to want the controversy,” Omar said. She also responded to Nicholas Haros, the son of a 9/11 victim who spoke out against Omar at the 18th-anniversary event in New York while wearing a “some people did something” T-shirt. “9/11 was an attack on all Americans. It was an attack on all of us, and I certainly could not understand the weight of the pain that the families of the victims of 9/11 must feel,” Omar said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVrrM2wenhk
