“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough had 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang on his show.

Yang wants to provide every American with $1,000 a month.

Seem a little illogical?

Scarborough: “I applaud that. What is the price tag, you’re a numbers guy. What’s the price tag of giving every American $1,000 a month?

Yang: “Well, we’re spending $1.5 trillion to Americans around the country, but you have to look around us. Who are going to be the big winners from AI and new technologies? The big winners are going to be Amazon, Google, Facebook, Uber.

Scarborough: “Right. But I’m just — I’m curious because I actually entered politics because I was concerned about the national debt. Do you know actually what the price tag would be paying every American $1,000 a month?

Yang: “It’s $1.8 trillion past current expenses, but the way you get there, Joe, we all know this, how much did Amazon pay in taxes last year? Zero. Meanwhile, Amazon is sucking up $20 billion in business every year putting 30% of American malls out of business so what we need to do is pass the value added tax that would get the American people a slice of every Amazon transaction, every Google search, every robot truck mile.

WATCH:

Of the many 2020 Democrat presidential candidates, Yang may very well be the least known – by a long shot.

If you have ever heard of the founder of Venture for America, a non-profit organization that seeks “to revitalize American cities and communities through entrepreneurship,” you’re ahead of the curve.

According to Yang, the next generation of white Americans will soon begin shooting up Asian churches.

No, that is not a joke.

WATCH:

DAAAAAANG! How ridiculous.

At the same time, Yang may have as good a chance to secure the Democrat nomination for president as The View‘s Joy Behar.

More on Yang, per Washington Examiner:

Democratic presidential hopeful Andrew Yang is finding a growing surge of online grassroots support for his longshot campaign in the form of memes.

The 44-year-old serial entrepreneur’s online supporters, known as the Yang Gang, have started meme pages on Reddit, Twitter, and 4chan, placing Yang’s image on popular meme templates. The profile of Yang memes exploded last month after his appearance on the “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, which is a favorite show within the meme community.

Yang’s popularity is attributable in part to his universal basic income proposal, the centerpiece of his campaign, which entails giving every adult in the country $1,000 a month. The policy proposal is popular among a mostly white and male meme and gamer culture which shares Yang’s concern for jobs being lost to automation.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
