If they think that's obsessed, what do they think of themselves after mentioning Trump almost 90 times a day for a similar period?

Actually it's more of a criticism of the NYT and their use of an Op-Ed to use sexism to defend an ideological viewpoint.


I am sure sexism factors into play in some way.


Of course it does. How could any man (Republican anyways) disagree with a woman without being sexist? Candace Owens is bashed all the time, and insulted, and it's never because of sexism.

LOL because socialist healthcare systems are working so well throughout the rest of the world. You must have missed the whole finland debacle last month. Or the fact that the canadian system is creaking and cracks are appearing in it's sustainability. Or the UK's NHS inevitable collapse in the not too distant future (just ask the guardian, a very left leaning newspaper).

Then we have the cuban system to look at and don't forget venezuela! Bastions of socialist success!!!


As for Canada's healthcare system vs. the U.S.A.'s:



While dissatisfaction with the U.S. health care system is widespread among Americans, Canada's health care system enjoys high levels of satisfaction among its own population. ... Canada provides universal access to health care for its citizens, while nearly one in five non-elderly Americans is uninsured.


Maybe if we had 300,000,000 less people it would work.

Who are the farmers? Who are the builders? Who are the defenders? Why?


1. Women were always the farmers and/or gatherers.

2. Women are now builders - almost half (40.2%) of all carpenters are women.

3. Women in the military. Remember "Annie, get your gun"?


Almost forgot...

In my high school, people avoided the chicks with crazy eyes because they were, well, crazy.


Were they looking at you at the time?


They didn't have to be.

Nor do most americans. Those who aren't insured by an employer are likely on medicare/medicaid.


Then why are Americans complaining?


It's the Democrats complaining trying to politicize it. You don't think they tell the truth now, do you?

It does not have to be all or nothing.


Read my words again. Did I say all or nothing? There are clearly three groups, but either everyone works equally hard to make the collective a success or you have lots of people who only work some or not at all and the entire group is pulled down by that.

Didn't you ever get stuck in group projects in school? Or if you did, were you the one who let others do the work for you so that you benefited and this is why you want socialism now? I learned the other lesson from those group projects -- if I wanted it done and done right, I had to do it and swallow watching the rest of the group benefit from my hard work. This is why I don't like the concept of socialism. Other people benefit from the labors of the few who cannot stomach failure for themselves but will eventually be broken by all the rest who are content to ride on their labor.

Cleverness?

“Yes,” Ocasio-Cortez conceded, adding, “But I also think that what people are starting to see at least in the occupation … of Palestine [is] just an increasing crisis of humanitarian condition and that to me is just where I tend to come from on this issue.”

After Hoover asked Ocasio-Cortez to expand on her comments, the candidate said: “I am not the expert on geopolitics on this issue,” and “I just look at things through a human rights lens and I may not use the right words … Middle Eastern politics is not exactly at my kitchen table every night.”

Not the expert? Color me shocked.

Because that's what we do? We're never satisfied.


Because the reality is that there really is no American dream to be had.

Then how are me and my wife living it? My wife .. who is a first generation immigrant who came here as a non-citizen and JUST became a citizen, and can't wait to vote Trump.

Same here. Congrats to you and your wife! My business is rebounding like I haven't seen in a decade. I struggle every day to keep up with my workload. I have raised my rates twice just to slow down the influx but it hasn't worked. My biggest complaint is too much work, a HUGE difference from 3 years ago. So I work long, hard hours and reap the reward.

These liberals don't seem to understand that the American Dream is something you have to persue, it's not going to land in your lap. They need to get off their a$$eS and work for it.

The economic boon that is Trump is beyond measure. I know Democrats will take over again and destroy the economy like the housing bubble bursting, so I am taking the money we are making and going back to finish my education while I can and once I am done the degree I will have is basically me saying give me my money and it's an immediate job offer. The Democrats destroying the economy has cost me $2 million in waiting.

Exactly this. I am working my ass off, all day every day all I do is study. I suffer, my wife suffers, we don't go out, I have no time for anything. The end result is worth it.

Luminari that just seriously made me laugh, I thought the same. I'm not one to judge on looks alone, and personality goes a big way, but... really?

I can't speak for everyone, and I don't have a fixation on the Gal, but she continuosly puts her foot in her mouth on a grand scale. So when people call her out on her BS, it's either sexist, hater, anti-woman etc. I'm just like naw, take a look at what she says. Like for real, this is a freshman fool (Man or Woman) and You're in one of the most important sections of the United States.

Ocasio-Cortez acts like she just came out of a life-long Coma. She is STUNNED that food actually grows from dirt/soil.
