Full title: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Three Branches Of Government Tweet Wasn't The Only One That Triggered An Avalanche Of Stupid
We all knew we were going to have to deal with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezs nonsense. Anyone who won that primary against incumbent and soon-to-be-former Congressman Joe Crowley was going to win. The district is more left wing than Lenin. Its easy to poke fun of Ocasio-Cortez, who found herself in the spotlight thanks to that upset win. Shes a democratic socialist, with many of her colleagues viewing her as the future of the party. And by future, do they mean being the permanent minority party on the Hill? Only kidding. I hate those terms like permanent political majority (or minority). Public opinion can shock usHillary Clinton know this all too well. Still, we have some folks on the Right who are trashing her for her every word. Yes, its easy, but comments about her attire during orientation prior to Thanksgiving were atrocious. Its cheap. Its not effective. It makes her a sympathetic figure. It was overreach.
Just let her talk. Often times, these left wing stalwarts hang themselves with their own words. Cortez thought that the three branches of government were the presidency, the House, and the Senate.
Earlier this month, she took a swipe at Fox News tweeting, Oh no! They discovered our vast conspiracy to take care of children and save the planet.
It listed the four action items for the incoming far left House members, which include free college, a green new deal, and health care for all. Oh, and they want to abolish ICE. Most Democrats for obvious reasons are not pushing the latter heavily: it could swing suburban voters to the GOP again, as theyre concerned about security and gang-related violence. Free college and health care for all is just unrealistic, which is compounded by the fact that no one has a clue for how to pay for it; Ocasio-Cortez is once again the leader of the pack in that exercise. She thinks you just pay for it. Yeah, so do millions of American families who will see their employer-based plans, which they like very much, be cannibalized to export this slice of Venezuelan economic here. The new green deal will be straight trash just like the rest of Democratic politics. Its most certainly going to be more left wing than Obamas Clean Power Plan, which torched rural communities dependent of coal mining for their local economies. Her Twitter feed is an avalanche of stupid. Keep it that way; let her talk because she will soon find out that shes a small fish in a big pond. Shes one vote. She cant sign bills into law, and most of her agenda will die a legislative death when it reaches the Republican Senate.
The latest in this comedy tour is Ocasio-Cortez thinking that were all clutching our pearls because we know shes a bull in a china closet. Again, let her keep thinking shes an empress. Her left wing agenda isnt going anywhere, and it seems her Twitter feed is also worrying Democrats who think she could tear apart Democratic unity in the House (via Twitchy ):
Im fine being called a bull in a china shop, because politics that answers to special interests more than the American people *should* be disrupted.
Also, the idea that the same folks who bow to Trump are clutching their pearls is laughable.
Good. Thats how they should feel.
THIS is why we drag Alexandria, folks. Its not her clothes or her style or even how ridiculous her tweets can be (and TRUST US, they are ridiculous), but its the idea that anyone is afraid of her or that shes somehow more powerful than she is. Wed just like her to know what the heck shes talking about before pretending shes an expert.
Millennials. *eye roll*
And maybe she should take a look at her thread because its not Trump supporters who are actually clutching any pearls, its Democrats who are concerned she will destroy their party with her divisive blathering.
Twitchy had the tweets from Democrats dreading the collapse of unity. Keep her talking
Idiocracy is upon us!
Say what you will, in a blink of the eye she’ll be a member of congress from an important part of an important state and she’ll soon have committee chairmanships and memberships. Her vote will count as much as Nancy Pelosi’s, Duncan Hunter’s or Steve King’s does. If the Democrats were smart they’d assimilate her early.
Had the Republicans organized even a little, to create a shadow, write in vote, and they won, imagine the hilarity.
1. democratic socialist Is this CODE for Communist or NAZI?
2. How Stupid does the Author - Matt Vespa - of this article think we are? Is P.C. at that point in time where "journalists" are terrified of their own shadows?
Someone mentioned civics, and she thought they were talking underwear...
If you were to list the top three criteria for a Democrat congress-person, “smart” would not make the cut. And she’s got all three boxes checked: Female, Youth, Minority.
Now the question will be, knowing that will she continue to go boldly where no socialist has gone before, or will she tuck it in after her CTJ meeting with Pelosi and the Rat leasership? There are a lot of 3-box Rats in Congress who have aspirations of their own, and many others who have one or two boxes checked and who have been working to build support and doing the crap-work needed to advance to leadership positions. They aren’t going to take kindly to this upstart jumping the line. And they might point out that “smart” SHOULD be a factor, and she isn’t.
Let's Wrap This FReepathon Up, Folks!
Choo mean tree branches?
I've little doubt that you're right. LOL!
In my opinion, we should preferentially be attacking her ideology and proposals, not her personally. It just makes her a cult figure with the left.
If people wanted to pay higher taxes they could have all those things. If there was some way to divide the population into two halves, one wanting to pay more or receive more, the other content with status quo or better, then it would not be coercive (although ridiculously expensive for the half who do want to pay, because in that half, about a third would not be paying anything).
I worked out that America could have free health care if there was a 3% surtax on gasoline. So with that in mind, you could have pumps where you pay the current price, and pumps where you pay 6% extra and the extra goes to health care. I’m thinking if you were in a hurry, those 6% surcharge pumps would be pretty quiet.
This is not a policy suggestion, just an illustration of how socialized medicine actually works in economic terms. I don’t think it would be sustainable to have two different systems anyway (obviously the status quo people would need to go to different health care facilities than the free service people, in some cases anyway).
We don’t have free medical care in Canada if you hear Democrats saying that we do, in some provinces we pay directly and in some others there is a payroll tax which probably means that workers earn less than they otherwise might (and goods and services cost more). But there’s no such thing really as free government services, somewhere, somebody pays for it in their taxes.
My biggest lament about the ‘rats taking the House is that I thought that if they had lost it they might have imploded and nominated somebody as nutty as this loon for the presidency in 2020 - now I’m afraid they’ll have to be a bit realistic and grown-up in trying to run the show in their chamber for two years and will maybe put up somebody who will give Trump a challenge - oh well....
That tag line is now corrected ... and it only took five seconds.
“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Three Branches Of Government ...
Actually, she said the “three CHAMBERS of government”. Incredibly ignorant.
Interestingly, that is a large part of President Trump's support among the people: self-serving special interests in Washington (i.e. The Swamp) should be disrupted. I expect Occluded-Cortex to become part of that same swamp pretty early - probably by January 10.
At least the horse is useful.
