Oppression Olympic athletes usually use their minority names to signal just how oppressed they are Cortez is the double down kinda socialist so she took both to really drive the fact home she is indeed a woman of color.

It helps with things like student loans, affirmative action, and welfare too. Obama knew this...

Or its part of the heritage.

She's an idiot, but she's so much of one you can go after her on valid points, and she gives no shortage of ammunition for that.

Going after her for having her father and mother's last name for her whole life is ignorant though.

You're not the OP.

The person who made this post doesn't care about ideas because she can just wave her hand and declare 'socialism!' Thereby, in her mind, winning the argument.

If you want to discuss the merits of the distribution of wealth among the greater population based on the idea that we're 'the richest nation in the world' then maybe we can do that. After almost a decade on this forum I'm already convinced that we're just going to have to agree to disagree because people, honestly, have differing opinions on everything.

Like everyone with 2 last names, her mother wasn't exactly sure who the father was so she named her after both guys.

That and it gives her an edge in the oppression Olympics as another astute poster pointed out.

There were a lot of dumb posts in this thread ignoring reality or reason.

This one by far takes the cake.

Toughen up.

Her father's last name is Ocasio. Her mother's is Cortez.

I have a hyphenated last name as well. It's common practice with Hispanic families.


The BIG question is why does she only have 3 names?

And yet I'm not the one attacking another poster calling them names.

Isn't it ironic? Don't you think?

Ciao.

Hey man, it's the mudpit.

Besides, I was addressing the posts themselves, not you as a person.

She and I rank low on the name count for sure.

Have you never been around the Hispanic community before? Out of hundreds of South and Central Americans I know, I'm not sure that even a single one has only one surname.

how exactly do you know what the OP thinks? Is this a sickness with a certain group of political folks that they believe they are so superior in every way that they now have the ability to see into the mind of the opponent?

The OP was a question. Pretty basic, and it was answered.

Now, what ideas of hers do you find the most compelling and why? (since the idea of the OP is now solved)

Don't know why it's new to you but common for one to do so. example: Jackie Kennedy, 1st lady..went by maiden and then married names: Jackie Bouvier Kennedy...then she added a 4th...Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. Quite common when famous to use maiden family name in the middle.* *I know of a man who took his wife's family's name after his own.


So...to make herself feel more important?

Are you stunned? projectxvn explained it.
