The jobs guarantee is hands down her worst idea.  The rest are generally bad and short on detail but the jobs guarantee, WTF?
Right. Why guarantee everybody a job when everybody gets a "basic living income" whether they work or not?

I heard the news website Russia Today (RT) is funded completely by voluntary donations!

Was it CNN or MSNBC who reported that?

Oh, OK.  For the record,  Russian government provides 100% of RT funding.  RT is a state-run propaganda outlet.

That said, The quality and accuracy of RT's reporting is FAR better than the US commercially sponsored fake-news outlets (IMO).

Yes, the lizard will confirm it, good propaganda requires a good solid base in some sort of reality to make it believable. After you establish that solid base, you can start spinning and nudging and being creative.

I read news from outlets all over the world, as you might have guessed from some of the links I post here, and I also read news from lots of non-commercial outlets. Smiley

Then I use critical thinking to decide for myself what is really probably maybe happening in the world and what it might really mean. Shocked

Are people actually thinking Ocasio would make a good President?

" I’m a cisgendered woman. I will never know the trauma of feeling like I’m not born in the right body. And that is a privilege that I have, no matter how poor my family was when I was born."

Ocasio pretends to come from a poor family.  It's a lie.  She'll make an ideal Congress Critter. 

In the suburb in Westchester where Ocasio-Cortez grew up, the average household income in that area is $115,732. A website called Point2homes.com says the average household net worth is $1,192,838.

AOC is not presidential material.  But she can look forward to a life-long career in Congress.

I do find that kind of amusing, she didn't come from a poor family, she was just a loser that couldn't find a decent job until recently. 

From wiki:
Quote:
Ocasio-Cortez has described her background as working-class, and relates many of her political positions to it. When her father died intestate in 2008,[29] she became involved in a long probate battle to settle his estate.
Lengthy probate battles, super common problem in working class communities.

Wow, she's from Yorktown Heights and she claims to have grown up poor?  What a twit.  One of my daughters was born in White Plains a few miles from there and my kids grew up in Fairfield County across the border in Connecticut.  And she says she was poor?  That's just pathetic.

Democrats clearly recognize how biased the media is since they say things like that knowing they won't be called on it.  How many times did Hillary go around talking about Trump "stalking" her at the debates when the cameras clearly showed he never moved from the spot he was in.  Obama claimed he was born in Kenya, then his wife said it.  But that's fine.  Anyone else who said it is a racist.  Hillary actually paid for Russian dirt in the election.  No worries.  No collusion there.  It just goes on and on.

I don't want the press to give Republicans a pass like they do the Democrats.  I want them to go after Democrats like they do the Republicans

If Hillary is still alive (or a reasonable facsimile of her is created using AS technology) I think I'll vote for her in 2020. Or stay home.
