While the rest of the Alt-Right was drunk on the Trump Train, I was far ahead of the curve on how Blompf was selling out to the donors and was going to screw everyone. Similarly, I am ahead of the curve on how Andrew Yang is only the messenger of a looming transformation:
“Walmart has offered a glimpse at how it plans to move its stores into the future, announcing the addition of 3,900 aisle-mopping and shelf-scanning robots to its floors.
Reality check: Though 3,900 robots is a massive deployment, the impact to jobs will be significantly diluted as those bots are spread across 4,700 stores, says Darrell West of the Brookings Institution.
Among the bots joining Walmart’s workforce: 1,500 autonomous janitors, 300 shelf-scanners, 1,200 truck unloaders and 900 pickup towers that put items ordered online into a vending machine for customers to retrieve. …”
“New York City is facing a transportation crisis that is triggering new political consensus on old ideas like congestion fees and is helping to move the needle — ever so slightly — toward self-driving cars as part of the solution.
Why it matters: New York’s past reluctance to embrace AV testing, for both practical and regulatory reasons, means the city has missed out on the tech buzz and new jobs that the robotaxi boom has brought to smaller cities like San Francisco, Phoenix and Pittsburgh.
Amid the crisis, a new AV pilot program in Brooklyn could signal a possible shift in attitude.
What’s happening: Optimus Ride, a Boston-based self-driving startup, plans to deploy an autonomous shuttle service this spring in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, once the epicenter of American shipbuilding and now home to an urban industrial park. …”
In 2018, I pledged to give one person or family in New Hampshire $1,000/ per month for the year of 2019. The plan would be funded through personal finances and would be used to showcase the power a basic income of $1,000/month can do for American families.

Don’t shoot the messenger.
Andrew Yang is really only trying to help you. Quite honestly, he is the only figure on the national stage in American politics who has a f***ing clue about the real issues.
Here’s why I like Andrew Yang so much: he is an honest, practical minded realist and seemingly genuine human being like me. In contrast, these other liars in the “mainstream” don’t want you to notice that deep learning AI is chewing its way through the US economy right now because they are afraid of the consequences of what would happen if the public grasped the magnitude of the change that we are about to go through in this country. What’s going to happen when these people realize that “capitalism vs. socialism” is now obsolete and all these rich people are staring at an inevitable reckoning?
Once again, the only real question facing the electorate in the 2020 election is whether it is going to be $1,000 bucks a month now or somewhere down the road. By 2024, I can’t imagine where this country will be if Yang isn’t president and Blompf and LARRY FREAKING KUDLOW are still dealing with this issue. Can you imagine Kudlow selling the Goldilocks Economy of the 2020s?
HELLO, HELLO, the DOW is hitting record highs while the suicide and opioid epidemic is raging and getting worse. No one but Yang had the audacity to pull the fire alarm in American politics. He is the only one who is trying to show the people the answer is automation.
Note: This will be the country after taking the Yang pill.
Your descendants are just going to be people. Every ideology is now obsolete. They haven’t caught up with the changing underlying structure of the economy.
Yang was studying this 6 years ago.
