Ocasio-Cortez

Post by spot2180 » January 22nd, 2019, 7:32 am

She says a system that allows billionaires to exist is 'immoral'.

But she made sure to add that billionaire donors were not themselves immoral.

And then there's the part where she says the world is going to end in 12 years. Asteroid? Nope. Yellowstone exploding? nope. Although those might be more plausible than her reason. So, clearly she is willing to lie to get her agenda fulfilled: Climate change!!! Gasp!!

I believe 'immoral' has cemented itself into the collection of leftist catch phrases right along with 'values'. What the left considers moral and what they think 'values' means, but we know for sure that it can change like the wind. And we already know that 'truth' is not necessarily on the moral and values list--unless it of course it helps their agenda. Otherwise it is just an annoyance.

I wonder if AOC knew about this and would it be immoral?

The Davos elite say they are more worried than ever about climate change. But that isn't stopping them chartering private jets in record numbers.

The convenience and comfort of flying privately rather than commercially appears to outweigh any concerns about the outsized carbon footprint it involves, judging by a number-crunching exercise by the company Air Charter Service (ACS).

It forecast nearly 1,500 private jet flights over the week of the World Economic Forum (WEF) to airports near Davos in the Swiss Alps.


One thing is for sure: The wealthy pushing AGW have no intention of practicing what they preach. Does Ocasio-Cortez work on her speeches when she is stuck in traffic in a running SUV? Hmmmmm.....

Full quote:

"I do think that a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

She really triggers the right.

CK: do you think folks 'get ringworm' because they don't have access to public health?

walk me through this please. the science part of it too, if you want.

You can dissect her quotes all you want but ultimately it doesnt matter because she's not going to respond to misplaced conservative criticism. Shes going to continuously push for what she thinks is right and that's a response to climate change and a tax code that's more progressive. The latter part does not mean that all cash will be redistributed evenly but that public services will be funded to a level above where we are currently at so that we can have basic things like clean drinking water.

Sensationalism is working real good right now. How about numbers and how she plans to do it? And the effects of her plan?

She is the Lady Godiva of the left. History seems to repeat itself.

No one on the right worries about the cost of war, tax cuts, or mass incarceration. Talk about clean water or helthcare for all, the same righties get the vapors.
