Free Money Again

Remember when Rahm cut retiree and widow health care? But someone found money for this crap?
  • It’s called a Universal Basic Income. The idea is to give poor people money — with no strings attached— at public expense. It’s designed to counter the nagging problems of stagnant wages for many Americans, almost non-existent savings and the prospect of joblessness driven by automation or trade.

    A pilot program, proposed recently by Ald. Ameya Pawar (47), would put Chicago in the vanguard of those exploring a UBI by giving $500 a month to 1,000 Chicago families.

    A resolution introduced by Pawar, a progressive torch-bearer on City Council, directs the mayor’s office to create a task force to explore a universal basic income for Chicago, starting with the 1,000-family pilot program. The resolution has more than 30 cosponsors, although it’s far from clear if it will be ever become a political reality.
We could use an extra $500 a month with no strings attached. Where do we apply?

You can bet that if this comes to pass, that 1,000 will rapidly become 5,000. And guess who they're going to be beholden to, and therefore, vote for? Whomever promises them more money of course. 5,000 votes can swing elections around here.

How about something written into the law that when you accept government handouts, you surrender your Right to vote? You've obviously become compromised and the government is obviously buying your loyalty.....with tax money. It's only fair.

I don’t know how many different programs are out there, but would love to see what the poor actually get in terms of money per month. From housing voucher, snap, hearing and electric assistance, cell phone and internet, school supplies, school meals, transportation expense and any other “free” services. I bet if you add up all the government money from federal, state and local the amount of tax free money is greater than that of someone making $50k a year. I just named a few and I am sure there are many more programs out there. To get $500 cash in my pocket I have to earn over $750 gross on my check.

Well, I guess with this influx of cash they'll be able to pay their bills. Oh wait... they don't have bills cuz WE already support them. So they'll be able to give it others. Oh wait... they only believe in handouts if it's coming TO them. Put into savings? Oh wait...
they don't have any savings or else they wouldn't need this in the first place. That leaves buying more guns, weapons, drugs, Colt 45, cigs, burner phones, etc.

I read this article the other day and actually burst out laughing. That's how ludicrous this city has become. If it didn't affect each and every one of us, it could be turned into a sitcom.

"...when you accept government handouts, you surrender your Right to vote?"

That would help immensely, but what would solve most problems over time, including eliminating the national debt: when you accept government handouts, you surrender your right to breed. That, combined with defining a citizen as having at least one parent who is a citizen, evaluation and deportation of all non-citizens, and strict border controls, would eliminate most of the problems we constantly fret about within a hundred years.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy."

In my opinion, only those with skin in the game (taxpayers) should have the right to vote.

This sounds like something they tried in Finland (giving $685 dollars a month). But it's a small country and their system is completely different and they already have a very complete social safety net. And of course their taxes are very high on everything. Other trials like this are either underway or being explored in San Francisco, Ontario, the Netherlands and Kenya.


In the Chicago program I'd like to see how those chosen works out by race. Will there be a token Non-Hispanic white in the group? What about disabled vets, the elderly that barely survive, the widows of cops, those that have given something and been productive citizens. Of course no one is jumping on cars or blocking roads for them. The silent majority needs to wake up.

That also would be why some not supporting this because they know that the businesses will shift from giving the bribes directly to the aldermen now the same money will now go the Vote Buying, Why Bother To Work Fund or WBTW. Pay to play in Chicago is going to get a lot more expensive if this goes forward. When the businesses say nothings it will fall on the few remaining taxpayers to make up any shortfalls.

It's for the children...So dig a little deeper and deeper and deeper until you are in a hole that looks like a well and you cannot look over the edge. Then maybe they will stop asking for more. The last sentence was a joke, they will never stop asking for more.

UBI only really works when everyone receives it, regardless of income. That's why it's called Universal Basic Income. This plan is formulated by a bunch of amateurs who have no idea what they're doing.

To any life long Democrats that might be fed up with this type of thing you might want to look into #walk away movement. Tired of your money being stolen then given to those that refuse to work, I really hope so. Join the movement. The old Democratic party that stood up for the working man has become the party supporting the non working dregs of society using the workings mans money to reward bad behavior. Not the same party your parents were loyal to. They support no borders because it is the supply of cheap labor that keeps wages down for the working man. The cry for free this and that is their way of buying votes. Wake up the Chicago Democratic machine is robbing you everyday and yet you continue to fall for their BS. Maybe this program will open up your eyes. Starts with 1000 and only $6000/yr won't take long for it to be 150000 and $20,000/yr. But the business will kick in they are lying to you. Maybe but if they do there will be a large raise in all goods and revives from those businesses to pay for this stupidity. If the businesses say no thank you we will not pay, who do you think will be on the hook. That's right the city of Chicago taxpayers and home owners. #walk away check it out before it is to late.

There lots of good fine dining establishments and stores outside city limits that will save you outrageous valet and parking fees, bag taxes and other assorted city money grabbing schemes. Besides the clientele in these out of city stores and restaurants are a much better class of people than your typical store or restaurant.
Sorry just pointing out a true fact, most speak English as their first and only language and very few youths flashing gang signs. While you at it gas up the car and save several dollars by avoiding the city gas tax.

Bright, intelligent, productive employed people should get this freebie. This is why organizations such as Freecyle and Trash Noting exist, the working get nothing.

53% of your property tax goes for the children and that sure hasn’t helped the children. CPS every year has received the maximum increase allowed by law and look at the product they are producing

Don’t forget all the retirees on the FOP’s Aetna plan are now paying 37.50 a month to pay for the dregs O’bama Care. FOP forgot too mention to the retirees that it was in the ACA program. No beef from the FOP or useless Sgt Association Union. Are the Alderman and Rham paying 37.50 a month? How about the judges, teachers, Streets and San retirees? How about our isles do nothing pension trustees?
Has Rham been putting the city’s end into the pension funds? Maybe our trustees could comment on a few things to let us know who side they are on.

So true as rahm ruthlessly viciously took away CPD retirees health care with his 9.5 fingers and they got the illegal voting ID card program done with that cash!

7/21/2018 08:21:00 PM offers a What If:

What if everyone refused to pay their next real estate tax bill and instead sues the city for financial malfeasance. (The enforcement of county and state law would not be magically suspended by a lawsuit.)

Get a court order putting tax money on hold until case is resolved. (Given the current Federal state of the judiciary, should someone, aka, you, construct a coherent, cogent, and law founded case of the nature of which you have imagined, gather sufficient plaintiffs to class action it, file it and proceed to succeed in not having it dismissed summarily by the still ample quantity of feckless federal judiciary members, go for it.)

Would be fun to watch the city scramble for money, and given the current lousy credit rating would be hard to get and expensive. (County would not be scrambling; it would just shut down completely. City departments funded substantially by county property taxes would do the same. That would be quite the circus.)

What other money could be withheld? (You state this as if: 1. Your intial idea is ever gonna actually happen. & 2. As if, were it to actually happen, that wouldn't be enough. Boy, you sure are amusing yourself with this one.)

How about just taking all your shopping and dining out of city limits. (Yeah, that really is gonna do some damage.......now take a nap, dream your dreams and, when you awaken, hit that bong again, wet your beak with a bit of Jack and come up with another lovely to imagine fantasy.)

Bullshit on first claim.

Never works. Cannot ever work.

Crawl back into your mother's womb, that's as close to your YBI that can ever work.

Bet your mother will not cooperate with you on this.

Fucking wimpy whining punks.

The number of poor X $500 = how many millions? Doesn't anyone in charge of this bankrupt shithole understand basic math?

Having worked in the service industry, I've seen plenty of CPS bust-outs that really should just stay home and collect a check. Semi-literate losers with violent tendencies who can't be trusted to complete mundane tasks, full of bullshit complaints about "harassment" and "discrimination." They are gifted magicians though, making inventory and cash disappear when your back is turned. You gotta give them that.

Yes. Yes, they do.

Basic Math, (democrat politician version):

1. Gain power/authority to tax, and determine what to spend taxes, thus collected, upon.

2. Spend taxes on anything and everything that buys more votes to get reelected. That is, Anything and Everything.

3. Skim maximum for self and others of same ilk.

4. Repeat until dead.


Democrat Basic Math.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy."

In my opinion, only those with skin in the game (taxpayers) should have the right to vote.

7/21/2018 10:55:00 AM


That is precisely why we are not a democracy. We have a representative republic form of government.
What the hell are they teaching in schools now a days?
