    So, some folks don’t seem to understand “white privilege” or “institutional racism.” That’s okay. They might not also understand the demographics of the districts represented by the Insurgent Four. That’s okay too, neither do I. But, I’m going to look into it because I’m thinking they’re representing their constituents. I know, oh the horror! The “Others” being elected and representing.

    AOC being compared to TeamTrump Treason? Please. You can argue the method of communication but can you argue the substance of the argument or grievance? Take Twitter out of it. Can you?

    Biden/Harris


    Yes.

    To add to your pic!
    Oh man, your making it a tough choice.  Either,

    a)  Swedish style:  that pickled herring dish in cream sauce that can cause instant, massive hurling to the uninitiated, or...
    b)  American style:  ground and blended animal parts high in saturated fats that will later bloom into massive hemorrhoids and clogged arteries.

    In other words, if I had to choose, would I take food that will punish my body up front and fast or slow and delayed?  Oh man, just give me a damn beer and let me watch the game.  I'll eat when I get home!  :lol:
    1st rate hemorrhoids and clogged arteries ;). No one will argue that we have way better beer too!  All of these “quality of life” things are adding up!

    So, I like AOC, I do.

    The Green New Deal is a pipe dream but dream big, right?

    She can come off as pompous some time and for whatever reason it is a focal point to ANYONE that isn't in favor for her.

    Someone mentioned that she is voting for her constituents, and she is, for her district.  So when she votes it is for her district and not the rest of the burro, city, state.   This will get her re-elected but I am still not sure of her future as a politician going any further?

    Ruffle some feathers though, make some noise.  Good for her.

    I do criticize some things she says but I do like her.

    Fight on AOC, just don't throw out the bay w the bathwater.

    Anyone who thinks she's in politics for the long haul is as snowed by her as her constituents are stupid.  

    Can't wait for it - maybe she'll run once more not to be quite as obvious - but she will leave as "frustrated by the system," garbage, garbage, garbage, then make millions off the very constituents who are too stupid to realize it's all been a game from the beginning.  See: Sharpton, Al (who finally found a comfortable landing spot being Deblasio's puppeteer and driving NYC back into the days of Dinkins).  She played her cards right up front whining about getting her first job and not being able to afford an apartment like every other 20 something that is moving out on their own for the first time (I know - she had her own ApartmentSSSSSS - yes, plural - don't focus on the sideshow - stick with it - the point is fairly obvious).  She's in it for the money. Just like everyone else.  Ask Bernie - how much of his millions did he give to his fellow Vermonters to help them out however little that would be when divvied up among the 15 of them?  Or, Al Gore - who wants everyone else to cut their use of carbon, but instead of doing that himself, paid others to do it for him.

    The only stupidity in what she's doing now is by pulling the race card on Pelosi (yikes!!! Really?  lol.) she forced Pelosi to expose her and her friends for what they are - internet blowhards that don't know how people really think. They think b/c on the web, media pulls the race card the moment anyone doesn't do something there way, that's how everyone thinks.  Keep it up. Your naivety is kind of cute.  Did you find the Pentagon money yet?
    Sorry. The world doesn't work the way you tell it to.

    I agree with every word of this except for the premise: that she won't be in politics for the long haul. While I totally see where you're coming from, you know how some of these congressional districts work. Especially the ones that are super-liberal or super-conservative. Some people get in and stay in for decades. Look at Maxine Waters who has been in the Congress since 1991. Certainly no Republican can beat AOC in her district. And for a Democrat to unseat her in that district, that person might have to be even more far-left that her. So.....an ANTIFA candidate maybe?

    It seemed careless and instead of putting out a fire she threw gas on it.

    I like Pelosi, but I'm my opinion she has made a few unforced errors this past month.
