In "green" she is referring to money right?

That is all she seemes to drone on and on about...
Millionaires bad.
Taxation good.
Orange man bad.
Soy boy good.

It's like the universe took all the dull matter and condensed it down into one SJW liberal. The deer in the headlights looks she gives when being questioned about things like the economy is priceless.

Almost like it just dawned on her she is now on a national stage spouting her nonsense. Not in some basement talking to a bunch of stonned collage debt riddled leftists.

www.politico.com...


‘There Is Going to Be a War Within the Party. We Are Going to Lean Into It.’ The Justice Democrats helped get Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez elected. Who are they after next?


I suspect we'll look back on this and laugh at how easy it was for the "Justice Democrats" to take over the "Democrat" party. They'll take it over as easily as the Democrats are taking over the Republican party.

The true danger in AOC's "Green New Deal" is that the jellyfish Republicans will try to come up with some compromise that will doubtless feature a Carbon Tax in the hopes of keeping AOC's wing of the Democrats at bay. It won't work because at the heart of the "Justice Democrats" philosophy is extreme hatred for Capitalism, Corporate America and White people. These people NEVER give up and they'll end run "moderates" at every turn!

The Republicans are just going sit back and laugh while the Dems form their circular firing squad and start shooting. We seriously could see the Democratic party fracture, with the saner members deciding they don't need to put up with those whackados any longer.

You could be right, but that's not how I see it.

All "Republicans" care about is getting re-elected. They'll blow where ever the winds take them.

The Justice Democrats, led by AOC, on the other hand are dragging the Dummy Dems into the 21st Century by the pure weight and momentum they build every day by talking up revenge and evisceration of "the 1%", the "Billionaires" the "Greedy Corporations" and the CEO's covered up in their white privilege and the "Patriarchy" in general. I mean, hell, look at the University and College Campuses for example! AOC already has the support of the millions of brainwashed SJW types on the University Campuses. And we all know she resonates with the Millenials who never really got off the ground to begin with. They have no hopes of ever buying a house of saving for a retirement. They'll sop up this Socialist screed like mothers milk!

And never, never forget the MSM! Once they recognize AOC's rock star status, they'll be all over her like brown on brown rice! And then, there's the 2020 race. I predict AOC and the 70 or so Democrat Congress critters who back her like Senator Markey, will propel her even further to rock star status and the candidates like Kamala Harris and Cory Booker and Bloomberg (when he announces) and Joltin' Joe Biden will be FORCED ever and ever further left by the Justice Democrats.

Mock her all you want, she has probably done more than you already, and in a few years will have done way more than you for this country...

Most likely more than any of you jack wagons that sit here and mock her because you are oh so smart...

Seriously, if you are so smart, and know the best way to run the country, why don't you do it???

At least she did it... she did not just talk the talk... disagree with her all you want, but the least you could do is give her kudos for walking the walk...

I'm not mocking her at all!

I see AOC as the biggest and most important threat to the Republic for which the flag stood since the USSR.

Unlike the USSR however................I suspect she can not lose!

I'm pretty sure I do though.

It means you are a cult member, a zealot.

Fear is what governs your thinking, facts are only facts if they confirm your bias, people that do not think like you are killing Gia.

An ecowarrior for socialism!

apps.npr.org... so link to actual bill

seems she wants to get rid of air travel entirely in that time period and replace it with public transportation......lol we just got buses here in kalispell like last year and public transportation isnt exactly practical in our area let alone others

wants to fix the income in balance between whites and blacks and between men and women

the upgrading/rebuilding all buildings in usa? lol solar wind and geo thermal isnt available/practical every where

cleaning up all hazardous waste areas of usa (yucca mountain alone would cost billions) but is at least a good cause

NPR says it will never pass so its kind of a non issue but the fact she thinks this has a chance is ludicrous

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!!"

...


Whenever I see people campaigning on these platforms, I think of some popular kid in high school campaigning for class president on, "I will demand free pizza every Tuesday for lunch, and weed friendly classrooms" to a cheering crowd of clueless peers. It was Bernie's approach and people ate it up. It is comical and sad at the same time.

I like the government guaranteed job for all, but if you're unwilling to work - not unable, just unwilling - we'll give you money anyhow.

Seriously?! What does she think one of the biggest beefs most conservatives have with our current welfare system is? It's money for those unwilling to work, not those unable which is what it should be for - those unable and those caught in a temporary pickle through no fault of their own, *not* those who have decided they like the lifestyle. But there is no distinction currently. She just wants to make it official that we don't care, you all get MONEY!

Well AOC didn't want Pelosi as Speaker, so...

If anything I would think more people on this site would be supportive of her considering she's opposed to people like Pelosi.

I see your attempted ecocide insult and raise you common sense in the same fashion. I know exactly what the ideology of ecocide entails, but I need to know, have you ever actually spent time in nature? Have you seen the resilience of nature? Have you recognized that it operates as a self healing biome, even when faced with what we puny, small minded humans would consider catastrophic? My guess is no, you haven't. I somehow doubt you see much land that isn't carefully covered with blacktop, concrete, and floor tiles, honestly.

Speaking for myself only, I find the current president to be be quite sufficient and see no reason to run the country myself when we already have a perfectly appropriate leader in that position. Not that there's a goddamned thing you or her can do to change that reality, either.
Enjoy the next 6 years, going deeper and deeper into the insanity pool while ensuring that the schism of the Democrat party sees a Republican succeed President Trump in 6 years, and continues down that path until there's some manner of length reformation process of sane left leaning voters into a more traditional, less batcrap crazy Democratic party in this country. Welcome to marginalization, hope you enjoyed watching yourself and those you support drive you here.

Actually, Yes, I have

and you clearly don't know what Ecocide means

"the destruction of large areas of the natural environment as a consequence of human activity"

Doesn't sound so threatening... until you recognize it is the word being used by the ecowarrior nothings to describe fossil fuel usage, fossil fuel mining and recovery, roads to resources, human population growth, natural resource utilization, usage of grazing land by ranchers, etc, etc, etc... The dictionary definition is fine and dandy, the actual application of the term, however, is anything but innocuous. Ecocide is the centerpiece of the AGW scam, it's the screwdriver the asshats and their cultists are trying to use to get rational people to allow the screws to be driven into their own skulls.

As an aside, does anyone else see the ridiculous irony in all the modern day wannabe "anarchists" climbing all over themselves to get into line like good little soldiers to support the politics and policies of the party that wants to enact institutionalized controls and laws on everything under the goddamned sun? I sure do! It's about as believable as a porn star championing virginity, or a vegan butcher... or dare I say it, a brainwashed cultist trying to criticize a Baptist Sunday school goer.
