AOC nails it!




Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC

Why don’t people ever tell billionaires who want to run for President that they need to “work their way up” or that “maybe they should start with city council first”?

3. Or ask them about their "likeability."

I guess they reserve those questions for female candidates.

17. Yes indeed!

Trump is credited, for lack of a better word, with allowing the xenophobics and racists to come out of hiding and say their obnoxious beliefs out loud.

Too many Dems have been far too polite to call out the current GOP for their hypocrisy and robber baron-esque policies. I'm glad AOC says what she does in language everyone can understand. What she says allows Dems to speak out in the same unvarnished terms instead of polite euphemisms.

16. I saw this one

They always have to denigrate someone's previous occupation. How many times did the right chime chime chime in about President Obama being a "community organizer". They are all pathetic.

Peace

11. Politicians are supposed to serve the people

In general, billionaires tend to want to run things and serve themselves. There of course can be exceptions, but for the most part I think this is the case. No billionaire is going to want to work their way up serving anyone.

15. we do not have far left in this country

We may be used have it long time (e.g. communist party) but for the longest time we’ve had far right, right, center and just recently we have a litte bit of center left. AOC is not far left by any stretch of imagination, she is merely a center left congresswoman. She is to the right of Canada’s mainstream for example.
Also, having private insurance companies control your healthcare IS extreme and banned in most civilized countries. Universal healthcare via a single pool is a mainstream and the only way to have sustainable healthcare system. Being the largest developed country on earth by population would make the medicare for all type of healhcare the most efficient system in the history of humankind. Medicare as of right now, is the worst possible pool - old people only, it is illogical from insurance standpoint.

34. Now you're getting personal!



I love my coffee. Especially with an inch of half-and-half in it.

So I pay attention when there's research on coffee's effects. It's actually surprising how many positive benefits it has.

Less depression
More sociability
Better energy

The list I heard was fairly long. I expected it to talk of more negative findings.

No doubt there are also negative effects. I gave it up when pregnant, and I don't feel good if I drink too much of it.

That his first office being president showed the extent of his ego and that he should have run for Congress first.

26. Howard Schultz has a very noble reason for running for president of the USA

To protect the rich, the billionaire class, I wonder if that would also "make America great again"?

I will give him this, he is being sincere about it, it is all about protecting a few bucks from his billion account, not to better the country, he just wants to protect his and his pals money...I am so touched because no one is out there to protect the billionaires...I would say that the Nobel Price should also take a look at him, he may qualify.
