Did you even look at the image?

Her logo is cool.

NinerDoug 02-07-2019 12:44 PM

She is definitely out there. That last bullet point is a non-starter, I think. :D

Saw a headline, didn't read the article, that said that Nancy Pelosi is shitting all over AOC's Green New Deal.

“The green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it right?” -Pelosi

Green is the new Red. Ask the citizens of the Soviet Union how that worked out for them.

How about we start with a comprehensive breakdown of how these socialists posing as Democrats are going to be able to finance this without making America Venezuela North.

But, it would certainly appeal to the low information voter - "The Green Deal is going to bring unprecedented wealth to me! I'm going to be rich! And have all the vacation and time off I want or need! Awesome! And economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to wrok?? Sign me up! I'm finally going to be able to play Morrowwind all the way through for once!" I'm sure all the mouth breathing, basement dwelling ****tards will eat this crap up, though.

Grow up with this shit.

ECONOMIC SECURITY FOR ALL THOSE UNWILLING TO WORK

Hoover 02-07-2019 12:55 PM

Her policy positions are crazy as shit. They won't work.

I retweeted this the other day.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The 550 US billionaires together are worth $2.5 trillion. If we confiscated 100% of their wealth, we&#39;d raise enough to run the federal government for less than 8 months.<br><br>Perhaps our problem isn&#39;t how much billionaires have but how much politicians spend.<a href="https://twitter.com/SenSanders?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@SenSanders</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/AOC?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@AOC</a></p>&mdash; Antony Davies (@antonydavies) <a href="https://twitter.com/antonydavies/status/1091319973652381697?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">February 1, 2019</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Now, unlike most on the right, I don't think she's an idiot. I think she is just ****ing scary. Kinda cute, but scary.

"upgrade every building in the United States to be energy efficient and have a net-zero carbon footprint in 10 years"

Ban affordable energy. GND calls for the elimination of all fossil fuel energy production, the lifeblood of American industry and life, which includes not only all oil but also natural gas — one of the cheapest sources of American energy, and one of the reasons the United States has been able to lead the world in carbon-emissions reduction.

Eliminate nuclear energy.
The GND also calls for eliminating all nuclear power, one of the only productive and somewhat affordable “clean” energy sources available to us, in 11 years. This move would purge around 20 percent of American energy production so you can rely on intermittent wind for your energy needs.

Eliminate 99 percent of cars. To be fair, under the GND, everyone will need to retrofit their cars with Flintstones-style foot holes or pedals for cycling. The authors state that the GND would like to replace every “combustion-engine vehicle” — trucks, airplanes, boats, and 99 percent of cars — within ten years. Charging stations for electric vehicles will be built “everywhere,” though how power plants will provide the energy needed to charge them is a mystery.

Gut and rebuild every building in America. Markey and Cortez want to “retrofit every building in America” with “state of the art energy efficiency.” I repeat, “every building in America.” That includes every home, factory, and apartment building, which will all need, for starters, to have their entire working heating and cooling systems ripped out and replaced with…well, with whatever technology Democrats are going invent in their committee hearings, I guess.

Eliminate air travel.
GND calls for building out “highspeed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary.” Good luck Hawaii! California’s high-speed boondoggle is already in $100 billion dollars of debt, and looks to be one of the state’s biggest fiscal disasters ever. Amtrak runs billions of dollars in the red (though, as we’ll see, trains will also be phased out). Imagine growing that business model out to every state in America?

A government-guaranteed job. The bill promises the United States government will provide every single American with a job that includes a “family-sustaining wage, family and medical leave, vacations, and a pension.” You can imagine that those left in the private sector would be funding these through some unspecified “massive” taxation. On the bright side, when you’re foraging for food, your savings will be worthless.
Free education for life. GND promises free college or trade schools for every American.

A salubrious diet. The GND promises the government will provide “healthy food” to every American (because there are no beans or lettuce in your local supermarket, I guess).

A house. The GND promises that the government will provide, “safe, affordable, adequate housing” for every American citizen. I call dibs on an affordable Adams Morgan townhouse. Thank you, Ocasio-Cortez.
Free money. The GND aims to provide, and I am not making this up, “economic security” for all who are “unable or unwilling” to work. Just to reiterate: if you’re unwilling to work, the rest of us will have your back.

Bonus insanity: Ban meat. Ocasio-Cortez admits that we can’t get zero emissions in 10 years “because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.” The only way to get rid of farting cows is to get rid of beef.


DEFEND THIS DUMB MOTHER ****ING SHIT

Pretty much. It's a pipe dream, or not even that.

She'd make more progress by proposing development of a Star Trek like synthesizer that just makes shit you want out of nothing.
