Nice try at conflating the country with the government, but I'm not buying it.
For Tim Cook, the presidency would be a huge demotion. Today, he runs a company that has tens of millions of satisfied customers.
Lets say we pay out 100% of current federal revenue as UBI (setting aside the fact we'd still need Medicare etc). That's just over $10,000 per citizen.
First, why should we still need Medicare? A major point of a UBI is that we can eliminate the existing social programs and replace them all with UBI.
Second, $10K per citizen translates to $40K for a family of four (what, you weren't counting children as citizens?). Which is about median income these days. I fail to see a problem....
Okay, so Earth will be uninhabitably hot in a couple billion years. We already knew that, with or without AGW.
If someone figures out a way to extend my life into the billion year range, I'll start worrying about what Earth will be like in a billion or so years....
The real problem is you've been lied to
Of course I've been lied to. The tragedy is that you think the lies are only coming from one brand of the Ruling Party. Trump is a lying scumbag: that's why Hillary never took any money from him, right? Oh, wait...
your head so far up your ass
The last thing any startup needs is a pack of Ellen Pao's incompetent guilt-peddlers distracting people from the work they need to do.
Nah, that won't work.
We need to repeal the last couple centuries of progress first. Drop back to, say 1800, and we'll be fine.
Well, except for the lifespans being reduced by ~30 years, and the diseases and regular starvation.
But that's a small price to pay to keep people working, right?
Seriously, we're heading into a period that makes the transition through the Industrial Revolution look minor. And, yes, we may find that a UBI works.
Note that a UBI should replace all the myriad existing government handouts, so it actually won't cost nearly as much as might be expected. Yes, it'll require higher taxes, but not exorbitantly so....
DIsclaimer: yes, I'm one of those conservatives that
Nobody cares about the content of those talks, least of all anybody at Goldman Sachs. She could have stood at the lectern and read Rod McKuen poems for all they care. The issue is that the money Goldman gave her for those "speeches" are in fact bribes paid on spec, against the contingency of her getting into the white house.
No automatic driving car is better than a human, and that will always be true regardless of transportation method.
Dream on. Humans fall asleep, they get drunk, they get suicidal, and they drive distracted.
You both have fantasies
You have delusions.
Alternately, you do false accusations about the (distant) past so that there's no possibility of confirming/disproving the allegation.
Since I'm not voting the Trump no matter what, I hardly care. But I'd expect that about half the women coming forward now are doing it for the publicity, and not because they want Trump punished for his crime(s).
Hopefully, some other companies will learn from this and avoid SJWs like the plague they are.
These bureaucrats know that they're full of shit. This lawsuit is motivated entirely by their desire to punish Thiel for backing Trump. I hope he goes after them personally in court.
Holy crap, that "djangoconcardiff" character sounds awfully desperate for attention.
No problem is so large it can't be fit in somewhere.
