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.

Pelosi’s Letter to Dems Makes Clear It Is ‘Dangerous’ to Let Election Decide Who Will Be POTUS

Read that headline one more time…

Even for Nancy Pelosi, this is pretty bad. How dare she say something like this? Where does she find the stones? Oh, that’s right. She can say whatever she wants because the mainstream media will spin in her favor. Got it. All this does is reinforce the notion that President Trump never has, nor ever will, receive any semblance of credibility from the Democrat Party. These people are ruthless in their desire to destroy Trump’s life. At the end of the day, Trump was the right man for the job. He has a big mouth and he likes to use it. He won’t apologize for being brash. He doesn’t care if liberals see things his way or not. He’s determined. He’s focused on making America a better place than she was under Barack Obama. And he’s winning. Check out Nancy’s letter to her immoral peers… Pelosi issues rebuttal to GOP talking point in Dear Colleague letter: “The weak response to these hearings has been, ‘Let the election decide.’ That dangerous position only adds to the urgency of our action, because POTUS is jeopardizing the integrity of the 2020 elections.” https://twitter.com/JaxAlemany/status/1196506422651039745?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1196506422651039745&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F WATCH: Nancy Pelosi compares Democrats’ impeachment inquiry to the American Revolution War https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1184922572246274048?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1184922572246274048&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2019%2F10%2F17%2Fcome-on-nancy-pelosi-compares-dems-impeachment-threats-to-the-american-revolution%2F Reactions: The revolutionary war was fought bc of ppl like her.

Confirmed: No Quid Pro Quo, No Bribery, No Extortion, Impeachment Witnesses Say [Watch]

Should be game over. Period. But it won’t be…

Just like everyone assumed, Democrats have nothing on Trump. This entire impeachment charade was an attempt to, once again, damage a duly-elected president’s chances of winning re-election in 2020. Will this latest news move the needle with regard to how the mainstream media reports? Will they start giving Trump a fair shake? Maybe even begin to realize that Congressional Dems are bad people who seek to crush POTUS? Probably not. It should happen. But it won’t. And why? Because Donald John Trump is far more evil than Adolf Elizabeth Hitler. And that’s the way certain people will always see it. From Daily Wire: Kurt Volker, the former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, a top National Security Council official that was on President Donald Trump’s Ukraine phone call, both confirmed during their testimonies on Tuesday that there was no quid pro quo, no bribery, and no extortion. WATCH: [email protected] completely deconstructs the Dems’ case with her questioning. “Schiff got the facts wrong” is turning into an evergreen phrase. Morrison & Volker agree no quid pro quo, no bribery, no extortion. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 https://twitter.com/TCPigott/status/1196955642868719617?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1196955642868719617&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fimpeachment-witnesses-confirm-no-quid-pro-quo-no-bribery-no-extortion A great day for Republicans, a great day for our Country! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1196958035127783427?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1196958035127783427&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fimpeachment-witnesses-confirm-no-quid-pro-quo-no-bribery-no-extortion Our Crazy, Do Nothing (where’s USMCA, infrastructure, lower drug pricing & much more?)
