Everyone gets the income, not just those unwilling to work. Your taxes might be higher to provide a deadbeat 15k a year, but you yourself are ALSO receiving the 15k, plus the income from your job. Why would this cause so much resentment if everyone benefits from it?
Bought one for my girlfriend, on Verizon prepaid. LTE, 8 GB storage, 1 GB RAM, up to 32 GB sd card, 1.2 Ghz snapdragon 410 quad core, lollipop 5.0 upgraded to 5.1, splashproof rugged build, 2390 mah battery, front camera for Skype, paid 58 bucks. I've seen it on sale for this price several times since then. Very snappy little phone, too... Smooth scrolling and apps open quickly.
Except that they DID release a product, to all the kickstarter backers as well as for sale to the general public. That the console didn't see much success in the marketplace has no bearing on the fact that they did deliver.
