Two Morlocks with their lunch…
Gee, wouldn’t it be great if Uncle Sam sent you a check every month, just for being you? Just for existing? They could call it a “Universal Basic Income,” you’d get it with no strings attached, whether you worked or not. And a lot of Real Smart People say this would get rid of “inequality” (studio audience boos, hisses) and replace it with “equality” (studio audience wildly applauds).
Ten years ago, before Obama, 12% of Americans supported this immoral proposal.
Now, after eight years of Obama, a new poll by Northwestern University and Gallup finds that 48% think it’s a swell idea (https://www.cnbc.com/2018/02/26/roughly-half-of-americans-now-support-universal-basic-income.html).
You will surely be surprised to learn that “universal basic income” enjoys its widest support among Democrats (65%!) and “young people,” aka slackers whose worthless collidge educations keep them from getting decent jobs. What’s that? You’re not surprised at all?
Proponents of this scheme pooh-pooh the notion that doling out free money will encourage people to be lazy welfare bums; it will, instead, they say, motivate people to work harder (studio audience explodes with laughter).
Yeah, but we gotta do it because of “rising inequality”! Uh-huh. What do these guys mean by “equality”? Do we all get to have, each and every one of us, his own Clinton Foundation? Do we all get movie star money?
Does anybody really need to have it explained to him why this is such a wicked and asinine idea?
How would you feel about hauling yourself off to work every day while the jidrool next door lolls around at home playing video games–supported in his slothfulness by your tax dollars which you worked to earn? Gee, that would sort of make that gink your master, wouldn’t it? And you his slave.
Why are rich, powerful liberals trying to sell us this? Are they aiming to turn us into Eloi–so that they, the Morlocks, can eat us? Is that all it’s about–cannibalism?
You just never know with leftids.
