Would U.S. Voters, Like The Swiss, REJECT Guaranteed Income For All?

Kind of like Social Security retirement FOR LIFE irrespective of age. The Swiss were talking $2,560, to each adult and $640 for children under 18 PER MONTH! That is more than what most people get in Social Security.

Of course the question becomes how will you FINANCE such a guaranteed income plan?

Of course TAXES will have to be raised and other entitlement program, possibly Social Security, would have to be trimmed back.

The Swiss, a savvy bunch, rejected it because they understood the consequences.

That might not be the case in the U.S. IF it ever, by some miracle, makes it to a vote for referendum. But to be fair there will be a large percentage, possibly 50%, who would vote it down because of the tax implication and Federal Government involvement. Food for thought though.

Will There Be A New Kit Lens For The Fuji X-T2 Or Will The New XF 16-55mm f2.8 Suffice?

by Anura Guruge


The Fuji X-T1 when offered with a lens typically comes with the ubiquitous 18-55mm f2.8-4 or the 18-135mm f3.5-5.6.

The new X-Pro2 is invariably sold without a lens.

So what will be the story with the Fuji X-T2, now expected to be announced June 14, 2016? Possible they could announce a new lens with it. That would be neat.

Most buyers of the X-T2, including I, probably already have lenses that will work with the X-T2.

The new XF 16-55mm f2.8 would, from what I can see, make one heck of a good zoom for this camera.

If you want a prime I would look at the 35mm f1.4 or the 56mm f1.2.


Here I sorted out Fuji’s
current repertoire of lenses to help you.
