    So, What Is a Universal Basic Income? – The Jim Jefferies Show

    THERE ARE ROUGHLY 40 MILLION AMERICANS LIVING IN POVERTY. THANKS TO DONALD TRUMP, THAT’S ALL ABOUT TO CHANGE. THE ADMINISTRATION IS CONSIDERING CHANGING THE DEFINITION OF POVERTY SO FEWER FAMILIES WILL QUALIFY FOR GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE. SO PROBLEM SOLVED. I GUESS THAT’S ONE WAY TO DEAL WITH POVERTY, JUST SAY IT’S NOT POVERTY. THAT’S LIKE, IF YOU HAD STAGE CANCER AND THE DOCTOR SAID NO, THAT’S JUST A PANCREAS BRUISE, PUT SOME ICE ON IT. IT’S A PRETTY SIMPLE IDEA.>>THE PROBLEM WITH POVERTY IS NOT HAVING ENOUGH MONEY. THE SIMPLE SOLUTION WHEN SOMEONE DOESN’T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY IS TO GIVE THEM MONEY. SO THAT’S MORE OR UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME.>>IT’S A MONTHLY…

    Jaimé Needs a Hoarding Intervention – Broad City

    Did you go in my room? I-I’m sorry, but this is what I wanted to talk to you about. That I-I know that you’re a h-hoarder. -What? -I’m sorry, okay? -It — It’s okay. We love you. -We love you. And we just want to help. Okay? I had to go in your room because I smelled what I thought could only be the stench of death. But then I later discovered it was an unfinished everything bagel with cream cheese, which — no judgment — is way worse. Who doesn’t finish an everything bagel? Right? I am not playing this little game, okay? And don’t go into my room…

    The Battle Over Confederate Monuments – The Jim Jefferies Show

    – Before I came to America all I knew about the South was what I saw in Gone With the Wind. (explosion) I fell asleep in the middle of the movie. Apparently there was a huge Civil War where lots of people died. And 150 years later, proud Southern folks still celebrate their side’s heritage with flags and monuments. The biggest remaining one is outside Atlanta. Stone Mountain, featuring Confederates Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson. And at night, they put on a sweet laser show. Who wouldn’t enjoy that? Oh, right. What’s your problem with Stone Mountain? – It is a monument literally to white supremacy. Now…
