What would a universal basic income
mean for America? Stockton thinks it
has the answer

Los Angeles Times, by Anita Chabria

Young, sincere and raised on the edge of poverty, Sukhi Samra has a mother who worked two minimum-wage jobs when she was a kid — days at a gas station and nights at a Subway. Her father is disabled. She knows what an extra $500 a month would have bought her family.“I spent a lot of 5th and 6th grade just, like, in those tables at Subway so that I could keep my mom some company and spend some time with her,” Samra said. “Five hundred a month would have meant that my mom spent a couple more hours at

What would it mean? More unemployment? More grifters? More illegals? More government? Less ambition? The death of our representative republic?

How they will share the data says it all... with a select few. That means to me that it will be very selective in what is reported. I want to see copies of the actual receipts from the debit cards or other means of payment. Was the money used at Bubbas Alcohol Emporium and Strip Joint or to purchase diapers and baby formula (which is what I am sure the proponents will claim was all that was purchased). Also, will this money count towards a persons income for purposes of other social benefits like food stamps, welfare, or Medicaid insurance benefits? Giving away "free" money to the poor usually has unintended consequences for their other free government benefits. This is probably why their identities are being kept secret.

One thing it would mean is VERY high inflation. Jst like in the 70´s when the minimum wage kept being raised.

The hypothetical they gave was of a mom who would have used the cash, not to raise the standard of living for her (no dad at home) children, but to lower her own work hours.
Less incentive to even try to get ahead.

My mom had 5 at home. We all worked when we could find a job. She washed clothes by hand,heated irons on the stove and did other peoples laundry. Then she worked cleaning house for others, then cleaning a hospital, then doing laundry at that hospital. We had no electricity till I was in 6th grade. I know what it is to not have anything. When my mom was a young mother she picked cotton in Tennessee. I don´t feel sorry for people who had to work hard. We did too and we know what it means to go without. Oh yes my dad worked too but he drank a good amount of it up. So much for the glory of alcohol.

$500 a month x 302,000,000 people which is the population of the US x 12 months = right about $2 Trillion a year. Obviously very affordable and sustainable for many years with the monthly payout escalating by 20% a year just to keep everyone happy and to offset inflation and the cost of living index.

The Godless wealthy, after trying to fill their empty spot with sex, drugs, fame, celebrity, money, gender changes, are now desperate to convince the poor that a little extra money each month will cure all THEIR discontent. It will not. Regardless of wealth or class, any of us who grew up in loving, faith-based homes can attest that only God fills that empty space, together with the family and friends that come from trying to obey his two greatest commandments.

It´s not about money. It has never been about money.

I´m with #17.
Being born in 1934, I grew up during the end of the great depression and all of WWII. My Dad never finished High School. Worked in a defense plant, had three young children at that time so was ineligible for the draft and couldn´t even enlist in the service.
He was married to our Mother, went to work every day and came home every night. He taught us responsibility, self reliance and to treat ALL others with respect.

This, folks is WHITE PRIVILEGE!!!! I´m a white male, 84 years old, made a reasonable successful life and I thank my Dad to this day for SHOWING me what it takes to be a man, a husband and a Father. So, as #17 said "spare us the sob stories" and I´ll add the "bovine excrement".

Democrats don´t know math or where money comes from. This means those making money will have to work harder so others can have basic income, now known as welfare.

"Universal Basic Income" - In other words redistribute wealth. In other words our Totalitarian government taketh from those that have and give it to those that do not have or will not work. In other words Communism.

Notice how they slip in the fact that it is two "minimum wage" jobs poor ole´ Mom works at to make ends meet. Fits neatly into the push for a mandated $15 dollar an hour minimum wage push.

In other words it is all about pushing wealth redistribution which is a basic tenant of Socialism/Communist democrat party.

More communist propaganda crap from the LA Times. Ugh.

A true story: Mexican family- Dad came here illegally as a picker in the chili fields in the Pecos Valley. But, that work was seasonal. After a few years, he brought his wife up from Mexico with their new daughter. She did not stay at home with the child, She brought the child with her to pick peppers and later together, they also picked cotton. They lived in a shed. He refused to accept charity, insisting they could make it on their own. He later gathered scrap wood, helped tear down old houses and barns and dragged scraps to the land he bought from a farmer on a payment plan. He built their home- and it stands to this very day.

But, they had five kids- three boys and two daughters. Dad insisted the kids go to school- and they did. But, when they got home, they had to go to work, chili season, they all picked peppers and cotton, too and had to give their money to Dad. Then after sundown, home, eat, do homework, to bed and do it all again the next day. Mom sewed, made tamales, which she sold door to door. All five kids went to college, received degrees- from the savings Dad made them put away- he died a few years ago- he was an amazing person...I worked for the oldest brother- Tony was Deputy Warden of the prison I worked in as a Correctional Officer.

But, now the City of Stockton and other socialists want to make that amazing self reliance all disappear- and just hand tax dollars to them simply for breathing. I think Mr. Gonzales would have told them where to stick their "free" money! And so would his kids.

The University of Delaware library is in possession of nearly 2,000 boxes of archival records covering Joe Biden´s 36 years as a senator but has not committed to releasing them before the presidential election, which the former vice president is expected to enter on Thursday. The records were donated by Biden to his alma mater during his first term as vice president in 2011. Biden stipulated when he donated the papers that their release could come "no sooner than two years after [Biden] retires from any public office," according to the library. Biden left office more than two years ago

A funny thing happened on the way to the 2016 presidential election. The unelectable, uncouth, unintelligent, unpolitical, unlikeable, and utterly unthinkable guy won. Clearly, the "deplorables" assisted, as did the "bitter clingers" — owners of guns and Bibles — and the so-called uneducated, unsophisticated, and ridiculed patriotic swath of the American people. But it took more. The uncovereds carried President Trump over the finish line to unbelievable victory. Who and what are the uncovereds? They are the silent army who are passionately pro-Trump but wouldn´t and still won´t admit it. Why? one might ask. Were they cowards?In the months leading

Donald Trump has thanked Rush Limbaugh, after the staunch Republican figure delivered a blistering defense of the president in response to Democrat jibes. Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday night following Limbaugh´s radio interview with Martha MacCallum, where he took aim at Republicans who do not fully support the president, and Democrats who have been ´unable to defeat´ him. His words came in the wake of a New York Times op-ed by Joe Lockhart, a former secretary to then President Clinton, who claimed: ´Republicans today are the party of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson.´ (Tweet/Photo) Paraphrasing Lockhart´s words, Limbaugh

Shiver me timbers! Those politically correct landlubbers have decided that generations of seafaring tradition must end. In a move that would scupper the custom of launching a boat with the words ‘God bless her and all who sail in her...’ a leading museum wants to make sailing vessels gender neutral. For centuries, ships have been referred to as ‘she’ and given feminine names. But the Scottish Maritime Museum says it is to introduce a ‘gender-neutral interpretation’ of craft and call them ‘it’. Officials say it is because signs on exhibits bearing the words ‘she’ and ‘her’ have been vandalised. However,

Helen Meigs thinks about climate change. A lot. “It’s always in the back of my mind,” said the Macalester College sophomore. Concern about climate change isn’t rare on campus. In fact, she’s convinced it’s widespread. “My whole generation wonders if we’re getting cheated out of a full future, and we can’t put it out of our minds,” she said. “It’s an anxiety-inducing situation.” That anxiety has a name: climate grief. In 2017, the American Psychological Association recognized the complex mental health burden in people who have experienced losses from natural disasters associated with climate change.

A Los Angeles road will officially be renamed in honor of former President Obama on May 4, City Councilman Herb Wesson announced Tuesday. Along with the unveiling of the road’s new name, the councilman will host a street festival with music performances, vendors and food trucks at the intersection of the new Obama Boulevard (currently Rodeo Road) and West Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. The name change was first suggested by Wesson in 2017. In his proposal, Wesson noted that Obama held a campaign rally at Rancho Cienega Sports Complex on Rodeo in 2007 when running for president.

Hispanics have “legitimate fear” of the Trump administration and its quest to query Americans about their citizenship on the 2020 Census, Justice Sonia Sotomayor said Tuesday, as the Supreme Court debated whether President Trump has the power to add the question back in to the decennial count. The government’s lawyer, Solicitor General Noel Francisco, was less than two sentences into his argument when Justice Sotomayor pounced for the first time, keeping up a steady stream of questions suggesting Mr. Trump and his team invented reasons to ask about citizenship, and that Hispanics in particular will refuse to take part, souring

There’s a concrete reason for Mayor de Blasio’s notion to ban New York city’s “classic glass and steel skyscrapers” — he’s got rocks in his head.Has any officeholder ever turned so viciously on his own town? De Blasio’s poisonous City Hall reign is distinguished by corruption, laziness and incompetence — but not by rank stupidity.

All aboard the crazy train! On Tuesday afternoon’s CNN Newsroom, liberal media janitor and Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter appeared alongside host Brooke Baldwin to complain about the Trump administration boycotting Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD), which is arguably the most pompous, self-worshipping annual celebration known to man (besides Hollywood awards shows).
