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.

Russia Completely Censors Navalny News After USA Issues Threat

Is Putin hiding Navalny to avoid further condemnation from the US?

Published

on

As Vladimir Putin continues to work up his reputation as the world’s most despicable and despotic leader, it appears as though he does have some jitters when it comes to dealing with the mighty USA. Over the course of the last several weeks, the two superpowers have exchanged a number of insults and threats, centered around any number of issues – all of which are of Putin’s own doing. First, US President Joe Biden went ahead and told the world that he believed Putin to be “a killer” – a statement that reportedly irked Putin to no end.  And then there were the hack attacks against the United States that saw Biden slap a number of hefty sanctions on Moscow. Now, as anti-Putin journalist Alexei Navalny continues a slow and agonizing march toward death at a Russian prison camp hospital, Biden and the US government have warned Putin that his demise could brings a world of pain to the Kremlin. This has pushed Putin to enact a total blackout of news on Navalny’s condition. Russian state TV has imposed a virtual blackout on coverage on Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny amid claims he could die at “any minute” in a prison hospital. The imprisoned 44-year-old, a prominent critic of President Vladimir Putin, has been on hunger strike and there are planned protests in 77 cities as a show of support. The protests on Wednesday will coincide with Vladimir Putin’s key annual state of the nation address to parliament. The Russian Government have said the protests are illegal. Putin and Biden had briefly considered a summit meeting to discuss this latest dissonance, but there is no telling where those negations stand after this latest malfeasance by the Russian government.

Houses Passes Bill Making it Legal for Banks to Work in Cannabis Industry

The moves comes as the House also takes up a bill that could see America catch up to Mexico and Canada on marijuana legalization.

Published

They say that money doesn’t grow on trees, but that’s because cannabis isn’t a tree. As our nation prepares to reopen its economy after a lengthy pandemic, there are many financial analysts out there who have been wondering aloud if cannabis or marijuana could be a powerful catalysts for fiscal stimulus.  The more potently psychoactive version of the plant is now either legal or decriminalized in a majority of US States, with cannabis, (diet weed, essentially), being federally legal as of this very moment. In states where marijuana is legal, massive economic booms have occurred, which have in turn prompted other legislatures to take a look at adjusting their own laws. One of the main issues in growing this cash-flush business has been the banking sector, on account of the fact that large national banks don’t wish to take on the liability of working within an industry that is under the thumb of federal criminality. The House of Representatives is now looking to change that, and just in time to turbocharge our pandemic recovery. The U.S. House of Representatives on Monday passed legislation that would allow banks to provide services to cannabis companies in states where it is legal, a step towards removing what analysts say is a barrier to development of a national industry. Lawmakers voted 321-101 to approve the bill and send it to the Senate. The bill clarifies that proceeds from legitimate cannabis businesses would not be considered illegal and directs federal regulators to craft rules for how they would supervise such banking activity. Bankers around the nation have been clamoring for such a bill for some time, hoping to cash in on this green gold rush before it’s too late. Both Canada and Mexico have federally legalized marijuana, leaving the USA as a laggard in western society.
