    I think it depends on the comparison point. If you compare with the current situation, UBI will definitely help poor people more than the rich - but from a neutral pov it isn't preferential because it is giving the same amount to everyone. Sometimes something can give the illusion of preferential treatment when you are moving towards equity. I'm sure some white people in South Africa felt like it was against them when apartheid ended.

    Also he talks about immigrants and asian-americans etc. in interviews - they are clearly part of his base, but he doesn't have a policy that will help these people more than others. I shall be very unhappy with him if it doesn't stay like that.

    Will he lose going by this strategy? So be it.

    Apparently he is that dumb... having now admitted it.

    He's supporters won't give a damn and most republican supporters won't care either... but it does not change that he was dumb (and arrogant) enough to do it.

    Modi and Trump patting each other's backs reminds me of this Sanskrit verse:

    ushTRANAm hi vivAhEshu
    mantrAn gAyanti gardabAha
    parasparam prashansanti
    "ahO rUpam! ahO dhwanihi!"

    Meaning,

    At the wedding of camels, donkeys chant the mantras.
    Each praises the other: "Oh, how lovely you are!"
    "Oh, what a beautiful voice you have!"

    The enjoyment is enhanced because, to Indian ears, everything sounds so much more official in Sanskrit, as Latin probably does to European ears.

    The Russian agent might make it to the next debate. Hoping for more based and peacepilled behaviour.

    Emerson National Poll:

    Biden 25%
    Warren 23%
    Sanders 22%
    Yang at 4th place with 8%

    Yang's best poll yet.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Just out of interest, as I was indisposed when it happened, does anyone actually believe Iran launched that drone strike against Saudi?
