    What this nation needs is some enterprising journalist
    to ask the 6.022E23 other Donk candidates, on camera,
    whether or not they endorse this guy's agenda.

    That'll separate the wheat from the chaff.

    So sorry, but had to look it up.
    Just plain old didn't remember it.
    Can't remember the number of charges in a coulomb, either.
    Sigh.

    He just doesn't get it, economically. He's a tool that wants to run a bigger, more-fail-ridden "VC Charity". He can't do that without money. His venture is a failure, so the only way to GET more money for it is to run for government and steal it from you and me.

    I wrote a pretty bad review of the episode on the Freak website. Seems like after a couple of those, Dubby has backed off of these socialist shills he's been having on lately. At least when he had Levitt around there was a REAL economist that got how an economy works.


    Best was he didn't call UBI UBI. After talking about truth justice and the American way he totally admitted that he renamed it because a focus group said people would balk at UBI but "Freedom Dividend" sounded like something that clueless conservatives would get behind. [rofl]

    Out the Democrat candidates, Yang's gun control position might be the most moderate out of anyone I've seen (except for some absolute fringe guys I've never heard of, like Wayne Messam). That's saying something.

    As a gun owner, who would you rather have, Yang and his licensing scheme or Hickenlooper, a member of Everytown? Warren? Kamala Harris? All of them want UBC, national red flag, and AWBs. Yang would ban "high capacity magazines" (number not given), but would allow semi-autos with a license (and current gun owners get an exemption from needing to wait to apply for a "tier 2"), give some tax credits, etc. Absolutely not ideal, but at least he's offering some sort of concessions (one of his bullet points to me reads like national reciprocity but with a potential catch).

    Once Democrats get a president in and have control of Congress, it'll be BOHICA time barring SCOTUS stepping in.

    I haven't heard Pete Buttigieg give a position. He's a vet and from a generally Republican state (Indiana). Could just be a Moulton, though.

    Not Yang, because it'll be the next "Obama-fever" type election. Everyone on the left will be in a circle jerk about "omg I'm voting for the first Asian-American" and other SJWs that think they'll "make a difference". Same with the gay guy. We need them to throw the biggest moonbats in there to scare people away(like granny, she's not liked by a lot of the country to begin with)

    I had a discussion at my work: "Why do gun people not want to negotiate on reasonable restrictions?"

    I pointed out that for there to be a negotiation, there has to be both give and take. Not just levels of "take."

    I said, "If I demand that you give me $100, or else, and then reduce it to $50, is that a reasonable negotiation."

    He actually seemed to see my point.

    He is just another one of the morons in the Democratic clown car. His candidacy won’t go anywhere.

    He had a since removed policy on federal/state infrastructure that was written like a parody of a Stalin era Soviet policy.

    He would create something along the lines of a "creation and destruction tzar." this individual had the sole ability to take property for projects in the public interest via imminent domain. He made it clear that said tzar would have the ability to fully bypass local, state and federal law along with judges rulings attempting to block said property accusation.

    I can see why he took it down.

    I’ve literally never heard of this dude.

    I had no idea a guy named Yang was running for anything.

    You are completely missing the big picture. What concessions is he offering?

    It starts with high cap mag ban.
    Then it moves to anything over 5 rounds.
    Then only fixed mags are allowed.
    Then only fixed mags that dont pertrude from the gun.
    Then only shotguns and black powder is allowed.
    Then only 2 shot shotguns, no slugs. Because who needs more than that for hunting.

    And so on until we are left like Britain using plastic butter knives.

    I have a better negotiation for you ... we dont add any more laws or stupid sh*t like waiting periods, licenses for this and that, bans on mag capacity and so on.

    He is not offering anything. I dont even see where henis offering something. All he is offering is to further advance the ultimate goal of complete gun confiscation and control.

    Him offering something would be if he could somehow pass a law and have another law attached to it that said NO ONE can make another change to any gun laws for the next 300 years or so. And there was an easy to enforce it. Then, and only then, I might consider something like "everyone needs a gun license"

    The mistake you are emaking is trusting the next government wont want to take more away from us. So, by allowing this guy to take a little, and the next guy to take a little more and so on, soon you are left with nothing.

    The other side feels they are owed because of all the dead children. They feel that their compromise quota has already been fully paid by those statistics. Now it's our turn to cut.

    To be honest, we are past compromise as a community and should not give anymore. Our community isn't the one tunneling guns into gangs. Our ... Isn't ... Doing illegal stuff.

    No more. Really. Not a good idea. Even if you think people should have to take safety courses. Even if you believe in back ground checks. Even if you believe in a registry.

    Just don't. 2a protects us all from government infringing on that right. Any infringement is illegal. They had their chance and they got laws all over the place and ...surprise! It didn't solve the problem.

    More laws won't solve anything.

    Okay, confiscation may. It would also allow crime to probably skyrocket.

    It's a one question platform. Should citizens have guns. Yes or no. The time for debate is past.

    It needs to be a yes or no Right Now. So we can all stop wasting so much time and effort fighting about it and use those resources to solve actual problems.

    I'm not sure you understood my post.

    If your choice is a ban on all semi-autos and an AWB like nearly every candidate is proposing or being allowed to have ARs but needing a license, I will take the latter.

    At no point did I say I want any further restrictions or think any of these are a good idea. All I am saying is compared to what the other nominees are proposing, Yang's seems to be the least restrictive. If you have a turd in one hand or a steaming turd in the other, I will take the less smelly of the two. That's all I was saying.
