AOC is an absolutely terrifying person to listen to, Seriously.



“The whole premise of the Green New Deal is that we’re screwed on climate,” she said. “At this point, we don’t even have to prove it — just walk outside in winter in a lot of places, and it’s either way worse than you’re used to, or way warmer than you’re used to.”


They don't have to prove it, just walk out side!



She predicted that the planet would face “disaster if we don’t turn this ship around,” claimed there was a “scientific consensus” that “the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” and said that young people were wondering, as a result, “Is it OK to still have children?”


Anyone that believe's AOC's snip, shouldn't reproduce to be blunt.




She scoffed at the idea that “working on an issue for 30 years, alone … makes someone qualified to solve an issue.” She said that people who had proposed more “ambitious solutions” had “not been listened to.”A carbon tax, she said, would not be enough to solve the problem: “If you think that a carbon tax alone, and no other intervention, is going to fix climate change, you’re part of the problem.”We have “one shot,” she said, because “people didn’t try” to solve the problem for decades before. “And now people are dying — in the thousands,” she claimed.




In addition, AOC rejected the idea of evaluating the crisis in Venezuela as a problem with socialism. Instead, she said, it was “kind of an issue of authoritarianism versus democracy.”


Y U NO LIKE AOC? These a re good GD reasons.

I retort.

You decide.

I'm off to peel a potato and drink some wine.

America is responsible for 15% of the worlds carbon output.


In order for Marxist Barbie to be correct, we'd need a one-world government, and the entire planet under authoritarian rule.


She is a dangerous idiot. A megalomaniac. A retard with a small bit of authority and power.

She is an example of "toxic stupidity", because her kind of stupid will destroy lives and result in a genocide of large groups of people.

Because many of us are concerned with it/her.

And it isn't just her.



Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Gov. Jay Inslee (D-WA) said if President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency to get the funds to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border stands, Democrats will use those “new rules” to address climate change.


AOC and her parties new weapon of mass destruction.

No other issue gives them as much power to take what they want.

Spend what they want.

Well if this whole congress thing doesn't work out for her she can always fall back on her teaching degree.

I am too...i just think/hope she is a one and done.

Unless the dems get control of all three branches then no way would the bill pass. Not only that but DT is stacking the courts in conservative favor.


I knew this emergency nonsense would be turned around at some point.

You're putting too much faith in the idiots that are in the republican party.

Where is she wrong? Science does say we're f***ed and a carbon tax isn't going to fix things. It's funny how she's literally agreeing with what the Right has been saying all along about carbon taxes and you still can't agree with her.

She's also right that a lot of young people aren't having children because of the state of the world. I know that's the reason most of my friends give for not wanting kids.

And she is also right about Venezuela. At least partially. Things seemed to be working fine under Chavez. It wasn't until Maduro took over that things went to s**t.

Ask yourself these questions:

1.) If socialism is always destined to fail why do capitalist countries always go out of their way to shut it down?

2.) If socialism is always destined to fail why does it almost always seem to lead to a higher quality of life when the US doesn't try to limit it?

What I don't understand is why Republicans have not made abortion illegal. Everyone says it is because they do not have the votes in the Senate. But this makes no sense to me because once you have the majority you can change the rules of the Senate at the beginning of the session to require only one simple majority vote instead of 2 votes were one of the votes requires a whopping 60 votes.

Unlike abortion which really gets out the vote, I'm not feeling the same draw out the vote feeling with Green New Deal. We already have enough solar panel boondoggles in New Jersey.

Maybe subsidize the creation of healthier food or something. Better healthcare based on outcomes rather than profit. I don't know. The green new deal is boring to me.

Where is she wrong ?

Science isn't a democracy.

Second. The carbon tax is just ONE TAX in whole list of TAXES.

People aren't having kids because they're still living in their mommas basement.

She isn't right about Venezula.

The only question that needs to be asked is,' Has Cortez or any of her defenders ever read the GD US constitution, or read any green legislation that has existed since the 1950's, and even know that the EPA has existed for over 50 years'.

Last time I checked your opinions aren't facts. Care to put in even the most basic effort to back up any of those statements?
