  1. looks good minus the wine a cold beer would be better....
  2. i seen something a while back that Tesla seems to be backing away from autonomous, musk himself has been warning against AI ...MY friend is a frieght driver for FED EX from what he says the company does not seem to be interested in self driving vehichles seems to be they may not sold on safety and the idea of what may happen if one runs into a bus / family or kid who may run into the street...
  3. the VAT i think is interesting because to me if you add $5000 or what ever on to a new car how many of those people that buy new cars every three years continue this and keep companys and workers busy ? also does that put the vehicles out of reach by adding that to a monthly payment or if it is due up front will they have the cash up front? just a thought. to me it seems that any tax is bad for economy. and if you pass these taxes to the businesses how is that helping by raising prices of product?
  4. the amount is irrelevant its still money in our pockets and not paid through taxing someone else... i just don't buy it ...I learned one thing in life nothing is free.
  5. think a black bear may be cool dont know if i would want to use a nice buck on that...
  6. I listened to it but i still don't buy it.not gonna pretend i know economics but everything i have ever seen or heard tells me no. yet people that like his idea say tax cuts that inject money into economy from people working to make the money doesn't work..
  7. did you not read in the article that finland and ontario scraped it after finding it was “not sustainable” and “expensive.”? why do people think everyone else did it wrong and they can be done better says every socialist that ever lived.
  8. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/new-jerseys-largest-city-plans-to-test-universal-basic-income New Jersey’s largest city plans to test whether universal basic income is feasible, making it the latest government to flirt with a program that would guarantee income for residents whether or not they have a job. Newark Mayor Ras Baraka announced his decision last week to create a task force and pilot program to study whether the program is possible. “We believe in Universal Basic Income, especially in a time where studies have shown that families that have a crisis of just $400 a month may experience a setback that may be difficult, even impossible to recover from,” Baraka reportedly said, adding that one-third of the city still lives in poverty. According to Fox 5 New York, Baraka did not release any further details of the plan, like how it could be funded or when a final decision would be made. While Newark (where 2020 presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker used to serve as mayor) is still in the very early stages of examining the program, it has seen little success elsewhere. In 2017, Finland tested the program, giving 560 Euros ($584) to 2,000 unemployed Finnish citizens per month, with no requirement to find a paying job. By 2019, Finland scrapped the program entirely. Last summer, Ontario, Canada, also announced it would end a program that gave money to people in low-paying jobs—instead of welfare benefits—after the government found it was “not sustainable” and “expensive.” But U.S. cities are still pushing the concept. Last month, Stockton, Calif. became the first city in the nation to actually press ahead with its program, offering $500 prepaid debit cards to a group of 130 adults who live in the city’s lower-income neighborhood, according to The Sacramento Bee. The mayor of Stockton last year said the program’s purpose is to eventually ensure that no one in Stockton, with a population of 300,000, lives in poverty. The recipients of the cash are able to spend the money on anything they want without any rules or regulations. Also in California, a startup, Y Combinator, based in Oakland, began a basic income test this year, giving $1,500 a month to randomly selected residents. According to The Technology Review, the test will cost the company $60 million, with 75 percent going directly to the participants. The company plans to run the program for between three and five years. Chicago also has weighed the option of introducing the program, which would make it the largest city in the U.S. to get on board. Alderman Ameya Pawar, last summer, proposed the legislation, which would provide 1,000 families with a $500 monthly stipend. A 2017 Pew Research Center study found that 60 percent of Americans favor the government providing a “guaranteed income that would allow them to meet their basic needs,” as workers with a high school diploma were the most likely to support a universal basic income at 65 percent. Meanwhile, 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Andrew Yang is pushing a plan for universal basic income. The entrepreneur from New York City, as of last month, was personally giving away money to families in Iowa and New Hampshire, the states that vote first and second in the presidential primary contests. "It would help people improve their health, nutrition, pay off some debts and bills that have been hanging over them, reduce their stress levels," Yang told Fox News in an interview last month. His proposal would involve the government giving $12,000 a year to each adult American.
