We will feed, clothe, and bathe our conquerors

Europe has its Muslim invaders. America has its coming through Mexico. Social welfare programs attract people from other cultures who do not want to assimilate, but rather wish to impose their language, their values, and their bad habits.

Europe is upping the ante with a universal basic income -- money for doing nothing.

I shall not ask if they are nuts.

They are.

The ingratitude of migrants -- invaders -- for the social welfare already offered is staggering.

Suddenly we will have a generation of young men with no job, time on their hands, and a chip on their shoulders populating our cities. This leads to gangs and violence.

From Quartz:
No one knows if a universal basic income (UBI) will help answer the world’s economic problems. But a minimum payment to all citizens is being floated as a response to a digital economy rapidly reducing or transforming whole classes of jobs.
Finland and the Netherlands are running modest pilots, and others are being considered by governments in France, Switzerland, and the UK, and by a host of nonprofits.
To gauge public enthusiasm for the idea, Dalia Research, a Berlin-based market research firm, has been surveying Europeans’ attitudes toward basic income since 2016. Dalia defined the UBI as an unconditional government payment to all citizens, regardless of their wealth or employment status, that covers basic needs and replaces other social-security payments.
They’ve found a warm welcome. In a March survey, 68% of Europeans said they would vote yes in a basic-income referendum, up from 64% last year. The survey was put to 11,000 citizens in 28 European Union states and has a 1.1% margin of error.
Spending other people's money is a popular idea.

But Europe should rue the day Europe adopts this economic -- and cultural -- suicide.
On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic the election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

Autographed copies of both books are available by writing me at DonSurber@GMail.com

  2. "Dalia defined the UBI as an unconditional government payment to all ****citizens****, regardless of their wealth or employment status, that covers basic needs and replaces other social-security payments."

    Are immigrants "citizens"? Or are they "those who will take over your country". My money's on the latter. So is the Europeann's money.

  3. There is a great show called Naked And Afraid XL.
    It is supposedly about survival, but since there are medics available 24/7, there is none of the real fear for survival.
    Though you start out naked, there are no rules forbidden covering yourself for protection, etc. Few actually clothe themselves and just suffer from a lack thereof.
    Most interesting though are the contestants who by one means or another sit around and do nothing other than give orders while others are out procuring food and firewood.
    Society is simpler when there are only 3 or ten people.
    And the pitfalls of communism are glaringly obvious when there are only 3 or 10 people.

  4. The government of CA now wants to employ open Communist party members in government jobs. The beginning of the long march to put a fellow traveler in the White House, a goal the NYT, whose owner lives​ in a Luxurious country Dacha, like his hero Stalin, never gave up. It was Bernanke who first talked about Helicoptering money. He was talking about getting people to spend to juice the economy in a recession but the European idea uses the same arguments​ by it's proponents. Talk of robots taking jobs and the difficulty of self support seen today among the young will give this idea legs here, as I have actually heard from talking with young people in LA. The Democrats will use this idea of free everything in 20, count on it.
    In Sao Paulo I'm told Business men and the rich in general prefer to helicopter between buildings when in the city to avoid kidnapping by the rabble in the streets below. In Europe they will hope to buy off the rabble, many of whom will be and are now unskilled Muslims or cultural natives, with helicopter showers but the idea will come here too, to buy votes, another "Right" we all deserve.

  5. We should help them. We have millions of folks who want to flee the violence and carnage and find a better life. We could empty Detoilet and Chiraq tomorrow and make both continents better.....

  7. Not having a job or any prospects with no income gave us the uprising in Iraq after the invasion of Iraq and had won the "war". So now the EU wants to try it with a guaranteed income for similar inactive hands.
    I am retired with a decent income and a lot of free time, but I have interests and my toys from my working days. Young men with a decent guaranteed income but no hope or "things" owned or to do, IMO, would become easy recruits for the Islamists as happened in Iraq. Especially, since their culture gives no respect to any Western attempt to placate them. No lessons learned by the global elitists.

  10. "And when these things are accomplished,
    And the Brave New World begins,
    When all men are paid for existing,
    and no man must pay for his sins.
    As surely as water will wet us,
    As surely as fire will burn,
    The Gods of The Copybook Headings
    with terror and slaughter return."

    Was that Kipling a prophet, or was he a Prophet!!??
