In the United States, unemployment benefits or unemployment “insurance” is a government program that takes money from employees and employers (through a payroll tax) and gives money to employees who have become unemployed. Someone recently asked me to elaborate on why I oppose such programs, and what policy I would prefer instead.
So a white supremacist or “white nationalist” (wants a constitutional amendment making America white-only, banning all people except “non-Hispanic whites of the European race, in whom there is no ascertainable trace of Negro blood”) briefly became an official delegate of the Trump campaign.

Famous chess master Garry Kasparov thoughtfully explores concepts of good and bad “New York values”.
It’s tempting to rally behind him — but we should resist. Because the New York values Trump represents are the very worst kind. He exemplifies the seamy side of New York City — the Ponzi schemers and the Brooklyn Bridge sellers, the gangster traders like Bernie Madoff and the celebrity gangsters like John Gotti — not the hard work and sacrifice that built New York and America.
