Andrew Yang | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO)

Makes a ton of sense though. And some of his solutions are incredibly practical (compassianate) just, and brilliant. (So, I guess we can count him out, huh?)
I also like this comment from a YouTube viewer: "I like Yang. He is not clinically insane. Gives him the edge." -Neil Mo Funny. Sad, but funny...

Alan Parsons Symphonic Project (Live in Colombia) Medellín 2013



I have always considered Alan Parsons to be a genius. He is an English audio engineer, songwriter, musician, and record producer. He was involved with the production of several significant albums, including the Beatles' Abbey Road and Let It Be, and the art rock band Ambrosia's debut album Ambrosia as well as Pink Floyd's The Dark Side of the Moon for which Pink Floyd credit him as an important contributor.
Parsons' own group, The Alan Parsons Project, as well as his subsequent solo recordings, have also been successful commercially. He has been nominated for 13 Grammy Awards with his first win occurring in 2019 for Best Immersive Audio Album - "Eye In The Sky - 35th Anniversary Edition".
