That's backwards. If you know the syntax, "C++" means increment C, but use the original C.
If you're using C++ for anything other than writing procedural programs, you're violating the basic principles of C syntax.
That's a great plan if you have wealth and use it to buy the bots and other resources required to make stuff or do stuff that you can use yourself or sell to others.
A lot of people don't have that wealth. I don't see an easy way for them to convince those who do have wealth to share it (especially given the rise of the Tea-Party which is based on people wanting to keep what they've earned).
"The question of whether a computer can think is no more interesting than the question of whether a submarine can swim." -- Edsger Dijkstra
The fact that computers don't "think" doesn't mean that they won't get better than us at doing the things that require us to think.
As automation increases we'll need less labor to get stuff done. What's going to happen to society when a significant percentage of people can't get jobs, because machines do everything they can do better and cheaper?
I know that increased productivity should in theory make life better for everybody, in practice wealth has been increasingly concentrated over the last few decades.
Nobody is in control of the Senate. It takes 60 votes to "end debate", so most of the time if 41 out of 45 Republicans want to block something, it'll be blocked.
That happened in this case; 41 Republicans and 1 Democrat voted against it, and that's how come the Republicans are being blamed.
