#AOC has announced her official Green New Deal and it's already being smeared and poked at.

She apparently chose NPR to do the "talk-up".

But Nancy Pelosi is sneering and spitting at it 😆

And of all the irony, AOC wasn't even placed on the House New Climate Committee 😆

It's all Humans' fault !!!!🐔



Pollak: ‘Green New Deal’ Is a Republican Parody of the Democratic PlatformRep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) released her “Green New Deal” on Thursday through National Public Radio (NPR).
As predicted, it is pure socialism.

The legislation, co-authored by Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), is a non-binding resolution that reads, to borrow a phrase from the late Jeanne Kirkpatrick, like a letter to Santa Claus — or, in this case, a wish list to Gaia or Mother Nature.



Nancy Pelosi Slights Green New Deal: ‘Green Dream or Whatever’House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday mocked the “New Green Deal” just hours before its outline was unveiled — the latest example of the Democrat Party’s widening split between establishment lawmakers and its progressive wing on how to tackle “climate change.”
Democrats including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are calling for a Green New Deal intended to transform the United States economy to combat climate change and create thousands of jobs in renewable energy.

The freshman lawmaker and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) are teaming up on the plan, which aims to eliminate all carbon emissions in U.S. energy production by 2030. A joint resolution drafted by Ocasio-Cortez and Markey sets a goal to meet “100 percent of the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable and zero-emission energy sources,” including dramatic increases in wind and solar power.

NPR?

She should have chose a twitch stream to reveal her big plans. You know, keeping it real with the kids and stuff.

I find it fascinating that Occasional-Cortex was not placed in the Climate Change panel, although 4 other juniors were.

There is a war brewing in the Democratic party, for sure.

Maybe actual liberals have a chance at taking thier party back....

Oh wait... there are no actual liberals left there.

The best way to tackle clean energy is to keep these know-nothing imbeciles out of the process. They are only hurting their cause. The only ones they are fooling at this point are the ones too intellectually lazy to think for themselves.

The actual liberals are more likely to be Republican these days. The Democratic Party seems to be run by an uneasy coalition of communists, black nationalists, and people on the take of Mexican traffickers.

I think she is awesome. Misguided and nuts but awesome. Think about it....she doesnt give a damn what Nancy P or any other Dem thinks....she is going for what she believes in. I admire her courage. A lot of other congresskids should pay attention cuz like it or not she aint going nowhere.


Its a new generation ya,ll. Horses replaced manual labor...then steam replaced horses...then came gasoline.

Its time to rock some renewables on a serious scale.

Lets just do it wisely and with some fiscal responsilbility.

The Green New Capitalist-Idea

always amusing when these Green-Capitalists think that mass producing "Green Products" will save the planet, ignoring mass-consumption, Industrialisation, hyper-civilisation, technology etc

The Green New Deal would be paid for “the same way we paid for the original New Deal, World War II, the bank bailouts, tax cuts for the rich and decades of war — with public money appropriated by Congress,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed.


... and there's the rub. No Carbon Taxes.

If the government tried to implement this Green Deal there wouldn't be enough left over for bank bailouts, tax cuts for the rich, and decades of war. We have to prioritize our spending. We can't afford to save the planet.

Problem is, wisdom and fiscal responsibility aren't traits you typically
find in the Green crowd. Greens tend to be starry-eyed idealists who are at best fiscally naïve, and at worst seeming want to watch the economy crash & burn.

The only green in this is the money spent. Where are folks going to live as all the homes are being re built? I have an Idea, raze all the buildings in Hawaii (Mormons won't care nor should Ultra-lib Zuckerberg) ship the population to Hawaii, and have everyone live in renewable grass huts while the CONUS is rebuilt (phage may not like it, I'm sure AOC will convince him, or she can lable him anti-green)

I would point out here is if they screw up their "Green Revolution" here is what do they do when the renewables run out? The past week here in the Midwest we've seen days as low as 20 to 30 below zero. Now imagine the renewable energy running out during such a time.

They shoot stupid politicians don't they?

Ahhhh..... We never paid off the New Deal debt.

National Debt by Year.

The national debt was 17 billion dollars in 1929 and has only gone up since then. The New Deal debt is still there. And WW2, the bank bailouts, and so on.

Apparently, this is the complete text of Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal.

You know what it reminds me of? No, of course you don't. My late Uncle put in his will all manner of things he wanted done upon his death, none of which was enforceable. Things like, 'create a new wetlands for the waterfowl in [redacted] county', and "Build barracks for the homeless." Good ideals. He wasn't willing to nor did he have the scratch to fund them, just stuff he wanted done. In his will.

We used to call things like this the 'Utopian argument', sometimes used by campaigning politicians:

Politician: "We want zero percent unemployment!"
Crowd: "Yeaaaaaaaaaaahhh!!"
Politician: "We want better wages and better benefits!"
Crowd: "Yeaaaaaaahhhh!!"

Thus implying that the opposition doesn't want those things. It's a meaningless con job. ANYbody can wish/want for things. The politician who brings a list of improvements that the majority of citizens agree with PLUS a credible budget of how to pay for them is worth listening to.

Otherwise, it's just noise, and I make enough of that myself for my own needs.

I don't have a dog in the next U.S. Presidential election, however it is never going to be one who believes pure socialism works for the people anywhere at any time in human history. Socialised medicine? You bet.

That "commie kook" is going to ultimately be the wedge that drives the Democratic Party into a full blown schism and likely will result in an entire generation of disenfranchised, disillusioned liberal voters.


This is going to be a beautiful gift to the Conservative movement... do the mainstream, sane Dems openly reject this retarded horsecrap and rebuke the retarded individuals like AOC, Sanders, O'Rourke, and Harris who are fawning over it and alienate a huge swath of their imbecilic, economically brain dead followers? Or does the mainstream Dem machine join in on embracing the suck and madness and alienate their moderate and non-bat# crazy voters who have supported the Dems purely out of tradition, social awareness, and a belief in American exceptionalism tempered with global responsibility? Which huge swath of left side voters will the Dems bend over the barrel and do they not see that the fractured party will hand the entire government over to the conservatives on a silver platter?

I'm gonna effing join xuenchen here in a metaphorical smoke.

Light that bitch up, take a drag, and let it linger in the air because we're seeing something absolutely glorious manifesting right in front of our very eyes right now.
