    I've changed my mind. Please go back to parroting other people's opinion from extremist websites instead of forming your own. They were terrible opinions but at least there was some cognizant awareness involved in them.

    This quote has me convinced at this point that Angelo cannot possibly be serious about their positions and that all these years, they've just been posting positions to see how ridiculous of a position they could get us to believe they believed. There is absolutely NO way that they believe this. That anyone could actually believe that. Well, anyone who also happens to be literate.

    It's pretty plausible. Look at how much difficulty angelo has in explaining why AOC is a fringe socialist, yet the relative ease he has in labeling her as one. If someone else is doing your thinking for you, and you believe your side/tribe/group whatever is winning, self awareness isn't required. Plenty of examples of this throughout history.

    No, it makes perfect sense if you can accept that they don't actually believe AOC is a fringe socialist. I mean, it's hard to argue a position that has no evidence whether or not you believe it, but if you don't really believe it, you will definitely have a hard time finding evidence.

    I could, tomorrow, start arguing as Angelo does. I mean, I mostly respect most of the people here, so I won't... but I could.

    I wouldn't say someone else is doing their thinking. More, I think their thinking is wrapped up in a fundie virtual machine. As to what the hypervisor to that VM looks like, I couldn't tell. But he has to me jumped the shark.

    Seems like if AOC doesn't get re-elected or decides to quit national politics, she can go into local or state politics or become an activist - join some activist organization or some policy shop. She won't have to be a bartender ever again, I'm sure. Except when she wants to tease right-wingers.

    Meatless advocate AOC eats meat in Facebook Live video
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez chowed down on a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit, during a Facebook Live video from 2017 as she and her friends drove through the state of Wisconsin.

    AOC, called the hearty sandwich a “palate cleanser” after taking a bite of a decidedly less-appetizing Wisconsin cheese curd.

    “I’ve got a breakfast sandwich for my real food,” AOC exclaims in relief. Ocasio-Cortez was joined in the car by friends Maria Swisher and Joshua Pereira.
    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter: "Yesterday I visited a school assembly w/ teens in Queens.
    One of them asked, “What can WE do to combat climate change?”

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter: "My other tips:
    - Start incorporating thrift, consignment & second-hand clothes in your wardrobe (host a clothing swap w/ friends for a no-spend option)
    - Walk, bike, & use public transit more often
    - Bring your own bag/coffee mug. It’s okay if you forget, 1x/week is still a win" / Twitter

    Charlotte Alter on Twitter: "As I explore in my book, the sexist obsession with @AOC's clothing is part of a broader campaign to discredit her politics by making her seem frivolous or hypocritical (see: dancing, haircut.)

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter: "Tempted to do a “woman on the street” bit and wait outside the Republican cloak room to ask each GOP Congressman how much their tailored suits cost 🎤" / Twitter
    Cute.
    I checked on some business-suit prices and I found typically $100 - $500.


    AOC has been concerned for some time about New Yorkers being well-counted in the upcoming census - inadequate counting = fewer Congressional districts, less allocation of gov't funds.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter: "Do you know who’s one of the most undercounted communities during the Census?
    Children under 5!
    Double check that you’ve included newborns and small children in your home when your Census form comes in starting March 12 🗒

    Rep. Ocasio-Cortez encourages 2020 census participation at town hall event

    Her Facebook site for official business Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - Home has video of it and some of her other town-hall events, like that eat-the-babies one.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter: "After our town hall on the Census in Corona, some of us grabbed a bite to eat at Boca Chica and someone in the community called in a serenata 🎶💕
    Our community has so much beauty and talent bursting from every corner. Listen to their amazing voices! 😭 https://t.co/1QN3UvZFRo" / Twitter


    The New York Post has been rummaging through her old Facebook videos, finding such scandals as her eating meat, her singing Bon Jovi's "Living on a Prayer", her supposedly pretending to be a journalist, and her supposedly getting her goddaughter into a charter school.

    Now that's quite funny. You mean AOC is not a socialist, even though she's admitted to being one on many occasions? She's also the rabid socialist the Bern's main backer.

    Once again, accusing AOC of being a socialist without proof. And we've had this talk about about why you can't prove Bernie Sanders is a "rabid socialist". Do you know how I know you can't prove this?



    Bernie's proposed tax plan, as shown here.


    And here is the tax plan from Australia's conservative party, currently in government:




    Bernie Sanders is more fiscally conservative than Scott Morrison's government. But that's not going to stop you from spewing rhetorical bullshit now will it?

    Look at what she calls socialism. angelo, I'd like to see you find what she herself says about that.

    Some more of NYPost's scandals:

    The AOC Tapes: AOC trashes Hillary Clinton for failed presidential campaign
    AOC: “She didn’t make a single … visit to the United Auto Workers before the general election. And then … they’re like upset that that union workers didn’t organize for her.”
    Maria: “We needed to win the rust belt and we could have done that and there are places that went for Obama that didn’t go for Hillary so there is a lot of complex things going on here.”

    AOC thought that Hillary's heart was in the right place, however. She would go on to defeat someone else who was negligent about his constituents: Joe Crowley.

    The AOC Tapes: Rep pretended to be 'journalist' at Standing Rock protests - she got access to press passes, and she said that no other journalists were there.

    As she approached,
    “We’re surrounded by men in bulletproof vests and semi-automatic weapons looking into the car,” she says. “And because I’m just a bad liar, I don’t like to lie, I just said, ‘We’re going to the reservation.'”

    These cops threatened her with a citation and a $250 fine but she apologized profusely and the cops let her off with instructions on how to enter the reservation legally.

    The AOC Tapes: Rep and pals eat Flamin' Hot Cheetos - Maria trying a hot one.
