Much like the GOP and Trump they will stop long before the reeducation camps and thus the breathless comparison to dictators only serves the other side.  Folks will here that, look at her and what she's actually proposing and roll their eyes.  This is how the Dems are ensuring Trump gets 4 more years.  You and the GOP adopt that tactic, you'll just get more and more extreme lefties elected.   The slippery slope not withstanding.

A Clueless AOC Terrified Of Garbage Disposal
Reply #201 - May 8th, 2019 at 1:42pm

Freshman socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is terrified of a garbage disposal.  Grin

"I am told this is a garbage disposal.

I’ve never seen a garbage disposal.

I never had one in any place I’ve ever lived.

It is terrifying.

I don’t know what it’s for, or what its purpose is.

Like, is this environmentally sound?’ 

I don't know!"

Any 4th grader knows the purpose of a garbage disposal.  But AOC doesn't.

And this woman is a lawmaker on Capitol Hill.      Think about that for a moment.

Its a funny video but other than a chuckle its only value is that I have learned that garbage disposals were once illegal in New York City and are now still very uncommon.

Garbage disposals illegal? 

Were they afraid someone might use a garbage disposal to hold up a liquor store?    Grin   Grin

Seems as though shoving ground up food down old pipes runs a serious risk of clogging them.

Ocasio seems to be learning the ropes of power in the Democratic Party, bending her beliefs in the proper direction...

She is more physically attractive to me than was Obama, but I don't expect she would make a better community organizer than Barry. Grin

Nobody in the government gave a thought to the fact that water and sewer pipes wouldn't last forever... Who knew? Cool

People are still talking about the Green New Deal:

https://reason.com/2019/05/13/the-new-green-serfdom/?utm_medium=email

From the essay:

"Like President Woodrow Wilson during World War I, President Roosevelt and his New Dealers moved to cartelize the economy with the enthusiastic support of business executives such as Gerard Swope, president of General Electric. "There was scarcely a New Deal act or agency that did not owe something to the experience of World War I," according to FDR scholar William E. Leuchtenburg in an excellent paper published in 1964, "The New Deal and the Analogue of War."

The Green New Deal should go to the Senate floor for an up or down vote.

Put an end to all this socialist madness once and for all!   Angry

Unfortunately, just like "impeachment", the Green New Deal is being used as campaign window dressing.

Congress, as is so often the case, is interested in re-election and power, not in actual problems facing our country, of which there are many.
