If anyone catches AOC farting, she should immediately be transported by high-speed rail to Venezuela where farting will not be a problem because no one has anything to eat.  They've consumed their pets and the zoo animals.   Enjoy socialism in another country you strange little Democrat.  Leave us to enjoy what we've worked so hard for.
 

That made me laugh out loud at work: "you strange little democrat."

We’ve come to a real fork in the road in America. That just can’t be disputed.
What used to be a huge joke 20 years ago is rapidly becoming a distinct possibility.
As insane and stupid as AOC appears, she is a rising superstar in the Democrat Party.
She is the rage in DC amongst Democrats, to the extent that 4-5 declared presidential candidates are backing her “Green New Deal”, which is essentially Venezuelan Socialism on steroids.
AOC is the darling of most millennials, the majority of whom are in favor of socialism over capitalism. Think about that.....think long and hard. AOC is not some fringe lunatic amongst Democrats. She’s setting the trends. Within the next decade she wants to accomplish the following:

-She wants to abandon all hydrocarbon fuels, in favor of renewables, like electric cars (which cannot function in freezing temperatures)
- She wants to eliminate airplanes, and replace them with high speed rail.....ignoring the problem of trans oceanic travel.
- She wants to impose confiscatory massive taxation on wealth and inheritance.
- She wants “Medicare for all”.
- She wants guaranteed incomes for all, including income for those who don’t want to work.
-She wants to see all buildings in the US retrofitted for renewable energy.
- She wants to eliminate farting cows.
- She wants free college education for all.

You folks better realize this kind of thing is an increasing probability. It’s not funny anymore....it’s serious. Baby Boomers are dying off and Millenials will be the driving force in this country. That’s where we’re heading. This is no joke.

The Democrats answer to Trump is AOC.

^^^Exactly! The woman is frightening because there are literally millions who are buying what she is selling. If its illegal to be a multi millionaire who exactly is going to own/run companies that employ all these people that are going to pay the taxes to pay for all these programs? Why grow more vegetables than your family can eat if rather than be able to sale them on the market they get taken to feed those that don't want to work. Why can people not look at Venzuela to see where we are headed with her type in control. The woman has no idea how we are going to fund these programs, she just wants them. She was a International Relations major as well as Economics...this is what they are teaching in our schools people!!!

As a millenial myself, it scares the HE** out of me. I shudder to think what kind of economy my children will have to deal with if this doesn't get under control and fast. The vast majority of people in my generation are liberal robots who don't have a clue. They have no idea what these policies will do to the economy, EVERYONE'S standard of living, they just here free stuff, and go YAY!

You are so right, Bear.

AOC said this Deal has ‘no price tag’.

The Mellenials and current teenagers have not been taught about Socialism at all! Most cannot define it for what is or even actually know what it is. All they seem to want is everyone to be at a ‘fair’ level and all kinds of stuff free. 

She (AOC) CANNOT say how to actually PAY for this, nor can Mellenials.

It is and she (AOC) is extremely scary...and the Dem Party IS going with this Platform.

As Reagan said.... Freedom is only one generation away. So VERY true.

The multimillionaires and billionaires in this country are what keeps us well ahead of the rest of the world. There is a huge multiplier effect when you compare their total net worth to their total contributions in terms of tax revenues, jobs, productivity, robust competition for consumer business, low cost of living, goods and services, and incomes. This notion of punitive taxation of the wealthy is absolutely insane to me. 50% of our citizens pay essentially no federal income tax, with the top 20% of earners paying 70% of the taxes, and the top 1% paying 40%.
If the progressives were able to confiscate every dollar of every billionaire in the US, they would have enough to run the country for about 6 months.....after that well ran dry, who would be next? Millionaires...just plain old everyday millionaires, which isn’t all that uncommon when you consider net worth. If you look at the biographies of today’s millionaires, you would be amazed at the number of people who didn’t have a college degree. They did this through smarts, hard work, and a willingness to take risks. Take Howard Schultz, the CEO of Starbucks, for example.
He grew up poor as a church mouse, and has a bachelor’s degree. He’s worth about $3 Billion.
There are several billionaires right here in Texas who came from a similar background.
Watch what happens if Kamala Harris or AOC gets their way. Billionaires would hunker down and figure out a way of protecting their assets, while jobs go in the tank.....while progressive plutocrats who contribute nothing, like the Clintons and Obama’s become wealthy to the tune of 9-10 figures. All those progressive liars are hypocrites and just as greedy as anyone else.....except they don’t want to earn it the hard way.....they want it handed to them, just like Clintons and Obamas.

We are the greatest country in the world because of freedom, liberty, innovation, and good old fashioned free market capitalism. Basically, to sum all that up: American Exceptionalism.

“The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms; greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge has marked the upward surge of mankind.”

Gordon Gekko - “Wall Street”.

There’s a lot of truth in that character’s words.

History reveals that AOC won over an incumbent in said district that had disenfranchised the voters. AOC replaced the long time incumbent. As far district voters goes, One only has refer to Nancy Pelosi's home district of San Francisco to see the caliber of voters.............
The same applies to Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, Maxine Waters of California and Hank Johnson (Guam will tip over) of Georgia. These are accurate illustrations of 'Representative' Government! Which, when critical thinking skills are applied, does NOT bode well for said district's caliber of voters.

I have a little different take on AOC.  I see her as the Biblical "Golden Calf" that became a symbol of worship but later became a toppled idol.   I would hope American voters as a whole are smarter than to fall into her delusional fantasies. 
I see the influx of illegal immigrants as a far greater threat and did you know that the Muslim Congresswoman Oman with the headgear now wants to defund the Department of Homeland Security?  She simply wants to make her mark as the third stage of The Three Stooges her Palestinian counterpart with the potty mouth being the second.

Like some one else mentioned earlier the older generation  of the commen sense is dieing off and this is very scary.. Now all the goofy women that like to wear their {private parts on their head hats} are trying to take over and doing a pretty good job at turning our world upside down.

Saw this posted by Ron Dwyer on FB and thought I would share here. Wasn't sure if this comment belongs in this thread or the cow darts thread but. Here you go:

"If a bunch of Republicans plotted to create a fake bill showing how bonkers the Democratic Party is, they could not have done a better job then Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal.

All the Democratic front runners have endorsed this lunacy and are literally handing the 2020 election over to Trump.
This bill proves the Democrats are unhinged and Ocasio-Cortez is the gift that keeps on giving to Republicans.

Kimberley Strassel, Wall Street Journal: By the time I reached the end of the Green New Deal resolution (and accompanying fact sheet) I was laughing so hard I nearly cried.
For example, look at sheer number of turbines, solar panels, and facilities necessary just for the "renewable electricity" part.
We would need 500,000 square km, which is bigger than California. Also note, the government will pay for these, not the private sector.
Also, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez would put charging stations "everywhere." She wants to upgrade or tear down "every building" in the country (homes and businesses), install high-speed rail across every state, and upgrade all our infrastructure.
(Maybe once Democrats would allow permitting reform? LOL.)
Somehow, government-run healthcare, "family sustainable" wages, paid leave, and "affordable" housing are also "required" for a clean economy. I would love to understand this logic.
Planes run on fossil fuel. No fossil fuel, no visits to granny. Cows produce methane, which is why alarmists want to get rid of livestock.
She can't do it "fully" in 10 years, but AOC is coming after your air miles and bacon. This is honesty about how Democrats would micromanage private life.
How to pay for the mass trillions in cost? Don't worry! The Federal Reserve will just "extend credit" and "new public banks can be created to extend credit too."
Because, you know, like, money is just paper, and how hard can it be to make some more of the stuff, right?"

This is part of AOC’s monetary policy that I guess she learned getting her ‘degree’. I didn’t know it actually had a name. This is just an except from ‘The Week’ from 2 days ago.

Essentially, Ocasio-Cortez is continuing to argue for Modern Monetary Theory — something she said "absolutely" needs to be "a larger part of our conversation" in a recent Business Insider interview. The theory says that because governments can literally print money, "they can spend as much as they like," Politico explains. "Inflation is the only obstacle" that should stop the presses, The Week details here. In short, it's a big, untested idea for a big, untested plan.

She really is an idiot.

Just print more money, inflation might be the only issue. Can we say Venezuela?!

She’s completely oblivious to what happened in Venezuela.......for starters, 18,000% inflation rate. That’s right....eighteen thousand percent. In other words, a loaf of bread that costs $1 today will cost $18,000.00 in AOCs world, under her Green New Deal. This woman is a crazy imbecile with big teeth, big eyes, and a tiny brain. The front runners are signing on to her agenda. She’s the brains of the party. Think about that.

And the Democrats say Trump is dumb.

While on the subject of the government just printing money out of thin air, how our money is not longer backed by.....well, ANYTHING, and why it's absolutely disastrous for the economy, go check out and get yourself a copy of "How Privatized Banking Really Works" by Carlos Lara and Robert Murphy. Fair warning: it is not a super exciting read but it IS a real eye opener. I'm in financial planning/education, and we will pass out this book to any clients willing to read it, and we've all read it ourselves.

What AOC is suggesting....to just print more money....is a horrible, dim witted, disastrous idea. We are screwed if the masses actually begin to believe this is the answer.
