Robots. With automated systems and machines increasingly replacing human workers, France could lose 3 million jobs by 2025, says Benoit Hamon, a former education minister campaigning for the French presidency on a promise of gradually introducing no-strings-attached payments for all. As work becomes scarcer, a modest but regular guaranteed income would stop people from fearing the future and free up their time for family, the needy and themselves, he argues.

It could also encourage people to take risks, start businesses and try new activities without the risk of losing welfare benefits.

Other popular Trump-related bets on Paddy Power right now include video of his “golden shower” incident leaking onto RedTube (5-1 odds); splitting with wife Melania Trump (15-1 odds); and painting the entire White House gold (500-1 odds).

The GOP will not let him be impeached. If it gets too out of hand, they'll just have him assassinated. And the Democrats don't have the muscle, the will nor the power to do shit but whine and moan.

NO! Not fake olive oil! :-(

In 2008 over 400 Italian police officers participated in a major sting referred to as “Operation Golden Oil.” They seized 85 oil farms that were adding chlorophyll to sunflower and canola oil and selling it as ‘extra virgin olive oil.’ The oil was mixed, perfumed, coloured, and then flavoured before being sold to the producer as extra virgin.
Olive oil is one the most widely used oils around the world, and said to be one of the healthiest. It is also, unfortunately, one of the most susceptible to fraud. An investigation into the quality of olive oil revealed that seven of the major olive oil brands in the U.S. have been diluting their oil with cheaper […]

This has been going on for awhile. Not as bad as the fake sushi scam, at least.

"One of the key reforms that we will do is, we're going to legalize the sale of inexpensive insurance. That means getting rid of the #ObamaCare mandates on what you can buy.”

Paul said Sunday the plan also will include health saving accounts and tax credits to help customers save money. He also suggested the plan will allow people and small businesses to create their own markets.

#ACA
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Sunday previewed his ObamaCare replacement plan -- in the 2016 presidential candidate’s apparent effort to take the lead in the growing GOP effort to simultaneously repeal and replace the 2010 health care law.

+Chris Merle HSA and FSA accounts are the biggest scam of the century. Someone else's manages the money and gets to decide what is a medical expense and what it is not. The FSA is use-it-or-lose-it accounts. And it's is just your own freakin' money! It isn't insurance and all it does is add more complexity.

"But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear?...It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity."

—Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

I accept the inevitability of Trump becoming president

HOWEVER

As citizens, we should demand that THIS be his official presidential portrait, to hang on the wall of every post office, military installation, government building, school, hospital, and in the National Portrait Gallery.

So that every American is daily reminded of their responsibility in this matter.

"First, I must confess that over the past few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in his stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"; who paternalistically believes he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a "more convenient season." Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection."

Tell me stories.
Introduction
Plus is my off-duty stream, where I enjoy a strict diet of brain candy, food porn, and the occasional entertaining rant. For the nonsense I contribute here, neither my work associates nor my blood relatives should be held responsible. 

A few notes to potential followers and random commenters. If you're neither a presumptuous, sanctimonious asshat nor an easily triggered hothouse flower, feel free to skip this part.  :-D

1. My interests are varied and I post a lot. You may wish to put me in a "noisemakers" circle or else de-select whichever of my Collections don't interest you. I won't be restricting my posting frequency for your sake, sowry, but I will LOL heartily if you ask.
2. I share a lot of political stuff from a range of sources because I find exploring different viewpoints entertaining and/or informative. If you can only handle seeing stuff from a preapproved list of sources, do yourself a favor and don't bother circling me. 
3. Complaining about my posts on the grounds that the source is not on your approved list (too frivolous, too Socialist, too liberal, too conservative, too libertarian, too crackpot, whatever) will get you blocked immediately, without discussion. Save yourself some time and just unfollow me. Buh-bye!
4. Trolls occasionally find one of my posts and go to town. I may (and generally do) permit this for information or entertainment purposes. If this bothers you, you may mute the post or unfollow me. Attempting to instruct me on how to manage my own stream will probably get you blocked before I bother to block the other troll types.
5. Plus-mentioning me on one of my own posts to attempt to "call me out" based on assumptions you've made about a stranger on the Internet will get you laughed at, and then blocked.
6. If you attempt to admonish me because you think the mere fact that a post exists in my stream is equivalent to "promoting" a particular political position that you find threatening, you're wasting your time. The peeps in my circles read well above the third grade level and don't need your protection.
7. None of these guidelines apply to the handful of peeps in my Circles, most of whom have a taste for the absurd, and all of whom are cool about civilly discussing points of view that differ from their own, and therefore have no need for such rules.
8. Tl;dr: My stream exists for my amusement, not yours. Enjoy your own stream, love & kisses, etc.
