    Thinking VS Feeling

    When it comes to thinking and feeling we need to first replace these words with something more accurate: T = things, F = people. Thinkers are into things while feelers are into people. This is probably one of the most obvious differences between men and women. And the data completely supports it.

    Men are much more into things like cars, engines, mechanical stuff, technological stuff and so on. Men like this kind of stuff. Women are more into people. Women would rather spend time with people than spend time working on a car. Women would rather spend time trying to organize some type of business built around helping people or even animals. Men would rather spend time trying to organize some type of business built around building something. The end result of Ts usually deals with some-thing while the end result of Fs generally deals with some-body.

    While gender proves to play little role in most of the breakdown, there was a significant difference in the T vs F role, where 75% of all female responders were “feelers”.

    The good news for Andrew Yang is that he is now qualified to be in the next Democrat debate.

    That leaves Tulsi Gabbard and Julian Castro as the only candidates that qualify based on number of donors, but not enough in the “polls”. They will try to get Castro in there. No one could have predicted that the cut-off would land right on Tulsi Gabbard.

    I kind of like Yang, but this is not cool.

    I think he could have a place in someone else's administration.

    Bets on how quickly 1000/mo "freedom dividend" would be considered unlivable welfare and demand higher minimums? Stupid Yang\


    But like it or not, Yang is the Ron Paul (or Bernie) of 2020. The guy came out of nowhere and has a ton of online support (from idiots).

    It really needs to be at least $5000/month to deserve the name "Freedom dividend". Freedom means something in this country, damnit!
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    https://www.yang2020.com/policies/value-added-tax/
    As President, I will…

    Implement a Value-Added Tax at 10%, half the European level. Over time, the VAT will become more and more important to capture the value generated by automation in a way that income taxes would not.
    This VAT would vary based on the good to which it’s applied, with staples having a lower rate or being excluded, and luxury goods having a higher rate.
    Use the VAT revenue to pay for the Freedom Dividend of $1,000/month per adult, Universal Basic Income.
    Yikes.

    I think a lot of proposals would eliminate the minimum wage under UBI.

    The biggest problem I have with UBI is that it presupposes people would actually use it rationally. If you eliminating the welfare state and had UBI, you would still have a huge swath of people who wouldn't buy health insurance or housing and instead spend it on crack and then some politician would propose more welfare for them. Also the dollar amount of UBI will constantly be raised.

    In theory UBI is cheaper than the current welfare state. Charles Murray talks about all the money that will be saved. In practice, it will probably be never ending.

    $1.000 No strings attached? i would probably assume the actually amount of that would be less then 1k probably 200 to 300 per month.
    Per Family/Person.

    You have to do the math to see where i am going with this.

    Andrew Yang on illegal immigrants

    Yang, who also supports a pathway to citizenship for illegal entrants, uses the bait and switch con artist’s game when it comes to dealing with illegal entrants who are here. He States:

    "Outside of increasing our guest worker program and making sure that those who receive temporary permission to come to the US to work leave when their time is up, we also need to find ways to address this massive community of undocumented immigrants who entered the country illegally.

    Rounding up and deporting that many people is a nonstarter—it would be prohibitively expensive, disruptive, and inhumane to many communities, so a pathway to citizenship must be provided (after securing our southern border, so that we don’t end up right back where we started)."

    No one I know has suggested “rounding up and deporting” illegal entrants. What is proposed by concerned Americans are various measures which would encourage illegal entrants to self deport:

    Step up the prosecution of business owners who hire illegal entrants and pay them off the books, and below the going wage, in order to increase profits.

    Encourage employers to use e-verify when hiring

    Deny illegal entrants any tax payer financed medical/dental care (excepting life death situations.

    Deny the children of illegal entrants access to a State’s public school system and all public assistance programs, i.e., deny them any privileges created by a state for its citizens;

    Forbid state issued drivers licenses or other forms of identification to illegal entrants;

    Direct the appropriate federal government agencies to identify aliens who have overstayed their visa and prioritized their expulsion from our country whenever their name comes up when applying for a driver’s license, stopped for a traffic infraction or other crime, etc.;

    Enforce public housing laws which make it a crime for illegal entrants to live in any public housing unit or section eight housing, and evict American citizens from their public housing for harboring an illegal entrant.

    Cut off all federal funds to sanctuary cities, especially New York and California.

    And making it a point of law to never allow a person who has entered our country illegally, or is here illegally and caught, to re-enter our country legally in the future __ giving existing illegal entrants a two month period to leave our country on their own before implementing this rule.


    Instead of proposing remedies to rid our country of illegal entrants, especially the poverty stricken, poorly educated, low skilled and disease carrying illegal entrants, Andrew Yang has confirmed he welcomes them with a path to citizenship.

    JWK
    There is no surer way to weaken, subdue, demoralize and then conquer a prosperous and freedom loving people than by allowing and encouraging the poverty stricken, poorly educated, low-skilled, criminal and diseased populations of other countries to invade that country, and make the country’s existing citizens tax-slaves to support the economic needs of such invaders.

    And today they announced that Julian Castro will be in the debate. That leaves Tulsi Gabbard as the only one who qualify based on donors that is not invited. Who could have predicted?

    Con artists Yang also wants to use the force of government taxation to implement what he calls the “Freedom Dividend”, a universal basic income (UBI) for every American adult over the age of 18: “$1,000 a month, no strings attached.” [NOTE; America’s population above 18 is approximately 209 million.].

    Con artist Yang proposes a new tax on those evil companies “benefiting most from automation”, to finance his UBI. But this is nothing more than a calculated gimmick ___ the old and tired attack on the wealth ___ a rope-a-dope scheme which blatantly promises to abuse the power of federal taxation, using it to buy votes at $1,000 a month for each vote, or about $ 2.5 TRILLION a year rise in federal taxation to buy his votes, which would dwarf the annual federal pay out for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid

    And this Con Artist is still in the race and qualifies to be in the next debate? Could con artist Yang be right, and that a majority of the American people are actually as stupid as Yang believes they are?

    JWK

    They are not "liberals" or "progressives". The Democrat Party Leadership is infested with communists and socialists who delude, lure and addict our nations needy with free government cheese.
    No he is correct, only qualified employment is the result of new employment, not like it was decades ago. So many people can't grasp what he expresses, Americans generally have really $#@!, miserable lives, they don't want better for anyone, they only see their own resentment.
