Novato, Calif.—Mirroring similar efforts in cities such as Stockton and Oakland, Marin County supervisors this week approved participating in a universal basic income experiment to give 125 low-income mothers of color $1,000 a month for two years. The county will spend $400,000 and the remaining $3 million will come from the Marin Community Foundation, the Marin Independent Journal reported. To qualify, the women must have a child under the age of 18. Participants will be selected at random from among 4,600 people who have already received direct cash aid from the foundation with the help of the Family Independence Initiative.


Free money, but if you're WHITE, you can take a hike.

"Mirroring similar efforts in cities such as Stockton and Oakland." Known by the company you keep. Note they only said mothers, not families. I wonder why....

Why are we encouraging uneducated, inner-city, single mothers to pop out even more babies and to remain on the government dole for their entire lives? This is insanity. I guess President Johnson was right about what he crudely said when he signed the Big Welfare bills into law.

Wil the baby mommas still receive the money if baby daddy is paying child support? Wil baby daddys assault mommas for a share of the money? (there was a shooting in Pittsburgh last week where a baby daddy demanded half of the 1400 dollars going to his baby from the stimulus funds. Baby Momma said no. bang, bang. 3 people shot.

It is what the Commu-crats have been squawking for, for a long time now. It is wealth distribution. They take YOUR money that YOU have worked hard for, the money YOU have saved and they give it to a multitude of worthless people who are to lazy to go out and support themselves, to get them to vote and support more Commu-crats.

A 'time limit' of less than a year could be imposed on the vaccine passport scheme to head off a Tory revolt on the issue, the Mail can reveal. Boris Johnson will give the green light on Monday to the development of a system of 'vaccine certification' as he looks to reinvigorate the economy.

Tacoma, Wash.—Tacoma police said Friday that they have arrested a teen suspect in connection with a suspected hate crime case in which an elderly Korean-American couple were attacked nearly five months ago, an assault that was captured on video and widely shared on social media. Authorities did not identify the 15-year-old boy because he is a juvenile. Police said in a written statement that the suspect would face a second-degree assault charge for the incident, which occurred on Nov. 19, 2020.(Snip) Radio Hankook producer Enoch Choi said his station launched a new campaign Thursday to speak out against hate

A reputed Bronx gangbanger was busted for a barbaric four-day rampage where he slashed and smashed eight random victims—including a 75-year-old man sliced while sitting on his walker and a homeless man beaten into a coma, authorities charged Friday. The savage spree last August ended with the arrest of JayQawn Byers, 22, who then punched a fellow detainee inside a holding pen at the 47th Precinct, said Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark. He was indicted on a staggering 66 criminal charges, including seven counts of attempted murder for his bloody onslaught targeting seven local men. “We will seek justice for the victims

Aiming big, Biden is looking to restore faith in government 40 replies

WASHINGTON — As President Joe Biden preaches patience but acts with urgency, his vision of the powers of the Oval Office is quickly taking shape, modeled after Democratic predecessors who dramatically expanded the reach of government to confront generational crises. In a recent meeting with historians and in private conversations with advisers, Biden looked to the examples set by Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson as he aims to use the levers of executive authority to create opportunities and break down barriers. Unlike Roosevelt and Johnson, who enjoyed formidable Democratic majorities in Congress, Biden has had to operate with a no-margin-for-error edge in fiercely partisan Washington.CORRECTION*

But President Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan, unveiled this week, represents one of the most ambitious efforts yet to challenge the centrality of the automobile in American life, by proposing to tilt federal spending far more toward public transportation and coax more people out of

Major League Baseball announced this year’s All-Star Game would be relocated out of Atlanta, Georgia, costing the city as much as $190 million in revenue, according to official estimates.Bill Volckmann, Finance Director for Cobb County, appraised the All-Star Game’s economic impact to fall somewhere between $37 million and $190 million in his 213-page agenda packet.

As we learned Friday, it doesn’t seem that the two teenage girls who carjacked Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar will face harsh punishment for their crimes, even though the older girl could probably be charged as an adult and the younger girl is a suspect in a January 2021 carjacking.

Chief of Police, whose officers filed charges of felony murder and armed carjacking with a taser against the girls. Sadly, Acting D.C.

It's brief, it involves no scratching of any itch, and it is a constant. Such a touch indicates a bunch of body language cues. Were he to tap the tip of his nose, say, that would indicate smug self-satisfaction: I know this, keep me in your eye. But he doesn't tap the tip. He doesn't, in fact, feel all-wise.
