    Expecting someone to win by nearly 40 percentage points seems kind of ridiculous.

    Pretty complicated answer here:

    He spends a lot of money at my venues every time he's out, also we (both myself and my girlfriend) know a lot of these girls personally and it's just for whatever warped reason what they are into.

    Once you start getting into the ultra rich and/or ultra powerful, both the women and the men like being demeaned or restricted - that's why you have guys paying girls to walk on them in heels and put them in dungeons and shit out here and in DC/NY pretty heavily.

    But no, if I actually thought it was oppressive in any way I wouldn't be around it. I mean obviously there is some sort of psychological issues there, but there's definitely the ability to exit or to not agree to it up front, sign ndas, etc.

    Yea, I think I mentioned this in the Spacey thread- but the really famous/rich/political names get video NDA's of them literally reading the contract, agreeing to every single action that they are comfortable with and then sign on tape.

    My attorney has to deal with a lot of this shit, there are some insane women out there in terms of fantasy.

    Another pretty big female politician from DC flew out to LA entirely because she had the desire to gangbanged by a bunch of guys, sourced through the initial person I mentioned.

    It's nuts

    Me and my girl bring home girls constantly, so it's very very slightly less awkward for us because a lot of our friends in the industry are used to us having some interesting girls around.

    But yea, this was awkward as fuck and nothing I could do about it. He didn't shoot me the "heads up I'm bring her in on a collar and leash" text unfortunately. I could have gotten a corner table and laid low a little bit more.

    Although it was pretty classy in fairness, not even joking pretty sure it was tiffany's.

    Bernie won Vermont by 40, Barrasso won Wyoming by 37, Gillibrand by 34.

    Go check the last 10 years of congressional races in AL. There are more than a couple 70/30s every election cycle.

    Not to hijack the thread (though I guess pretty much too far gone at this point to go back regardless)-

    It's a lot of work, we pre-schedule weeks out new ones and then have a lot of regulars also. Some prospects take months of prep time, some are layups that we meet at the club or restaurants.

    Truthfully, aside from texts conversations and maintaining contact I don't have to do a lot.

    My girl is 100% who enables us to constantly get girls because theres that immediate comfort factor and them wanting to try out a threesome etc. If I was rolling solo just trying to pull girls definitely would reduce that success rate.

    "Andrew proposes funding UBI by consolidating some welfare programs and implementing a Value-Added Tax (VAT) of 10%. Current welfare and social program beneficiaries would be given a choice between their current benefits or $1,000 cash unconditionally – most would prefer cash with no restriction."

    I find it misleading, to say that a "dividend" would be paid for with taxes. Taxing people and then giving that money back to them is not really a dividend.

    to me a "dividend" would be something like Norway's system where the public owns something that provides a return. (in their case, oil )

    sort of, yes. the Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation. It isn't exactly like Norway's, though. Norway's is way more collectivist and has $1 trillion in assets. Alaska's has like.. $60 billion or something?

    from wikipedia :
    "The Norwegian government claims ownership of all resources on and under the sea in the geographical area known as the Norwegian continental shelf."

    You have to have national assets to have national dividends, no? What does our federal government make money on that could be passed onto the people besides taxes? This is an honest question because I'm drawing a blank. Almost everything our government is good at either doesn't make money or is done through private contractors (which can be changed I suppose). Or am I completely blanking on something?

    The obvious answer is that we have the global reserve currency, and thus our ability to monetize debt without incurring inflation is orders of magnitude greater than other countries.

    The problem is that this opens pandoras box, once politicians realize that they can fund whatever they want by printing money.

    Having said that, we're already doing it to some degree already. We cut taxes, which causes us to run huge public deficits. They pretend that tax cutting will be offset by ~~magical growth~~, and even though everyone knows that argument is horse-shit, the difference is that the tax-cutters are not *explicitly* arguing for a money-printing policy, they are simply painting the nation into a corner where money printing is inevitable.

    From a macro perspective, printing money and giving it directly to Americans is totally workable, and totally fine, and not a big departure from what we do already. It's just a massive psychological shift that we aren't ready for, and it's technically shifting Central Bank responsibilities to a congress that is incapable of wiping its own ass.

    It's not a new concept , tho :
    http://assets.press.princeton.edu/chapters/reinert/9article_burdekin_seigniorage.pdf

    The thing is, historically this process was used to enrich insiders, or to help salvage a politically unstable situation. I'm not aware of any country that ever paid out a direct dividend from it, I think that would be a new concept.

    How much do we make? I don't like that idea at all because it seems like it would incentivize public land development for economic use.

    Not sure what the total revenue is it’s fairly significant for oil and gas I believe in the gulf and elsewhere.

    And that’s fine, sell wind farms instead. I’m just answering the question of what assets the US that generates revenue.

    According to quick google, Looks like in FY 2016 US collected 6 billion from energy related activities on federal land. And that was during the downturn and from the high of 14 billion in 2013

    I'm sure other people that are LA based will not find this as a surprise, but no one in the nightlife/hospitality community is very educated on politics. 99% of the senate/congress would go completely unrecognized for a night out typically.

    The type of person who would be swayed by that sort of debate performance never would have supported Warren in the first place. He's already shown up to 3 nationally televised debates knowing virtually nothing and it didn't matter.

    Even so, count me skeptical that “prominent” or nationally well known politicians with BDSM and other provocative lifestyles are going to be out in the general public in today’s environment, risking capture on video or social media. There is a deep culture and tradition in DC metro of lobbyists and power groupies ready to fulfill all manner of lifestyle encounters, but it’s very much under the radar, for logical reasons.

    It's more prevalent than you think and it's a pretty complex system, I was new to it as of the past year or two. LA/Macau/Gold Coast/Phillippenes/Tulum and tons of other cities are somehow far enough removed from the political spectrum that no one notices.

    I mean obviously Trump and Obama aren't getting away with this stuff in the public, but the vastt majority of senators/congressmen/lobbying firm execs/heavy hitter DC law firms have no chance of getting recognized in those separated bubbles. Not that it's good by any means, but I've never once had someone recognized or encountered any backlash, in terms of political figures while being out.
