    When you make Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown look sane, then you've really accomplished something that is quite incredible . Incredibly scary and sad that is.

    Anyways here is Ocasio-Cortez's (AKA "Occasional Cortex's" Green New Deal. This is legit, and she is actually serious about it.

    There are some many points in here that will, make you laugh, cry, and flop on the floor with hilarity. Think of it as meth addicted, alcoholic transgender's opus magnum thesis paper in loonacy.

    Without further ado, here is it...

    Got it earlier today and snorted coffee through my nose, the eradication, not reducing use but, eradication of fossil fuel use and ZERO nuclear power in 10 years......

    I think Pelosi brought back some "Moui Wowie" over Christmas, gave it to AOC to mix with her "Labradore'" and she got a little to out there man!

    I don't know how ridiculous or funny this is. The nature of politics is you present a plan and in the process of negotiating you cut out half of it to look reasonable and accommodating to the other side of the aisle. Then the other often used ploy is you get to a point in discussion and to show good faith you remove your initial offering and serve the real meal.

    Look at this again and cut out the smoke and mirrors and you might see what you should be concerned about...you are being intentionally distracted.

    Genius Millennial move -- she jams every sophomore's dreams into a "Resolution," gets tons of airtime, has to accomplish nothing, and continues "building her brand."
    She's following the Paris Hilton Script -- there's no bad publicity.

    When you cut out her crap, err smoke and mirrors, your left with unadulterated socialism. Socialism brought to you by a childish, self-absorbed, neurotic, dim-witted, dangerous ultra-liberal, fruit cake.

    The Demorats tried that this week in the State assembly piggybacking on a bill to make it a felony to release 26 LTA's into the atmosphere. LTA, lighter than air. So my kids next bday is going to have 25 BA1100Ns released with as much helium as I can get my hands on.

    The plastic straw moratorium was buried in the articles somewhere but got ferreted out by I believe the bourbon lobby, good on them! Drink stirrers and whatnot were included as "frosty adult beverage delivery devices" I think. Those Troglodytes!

    Agree with Scaramouche, the purpose of wildly excessive proposals like this is so that they can call the actual repressive bill a "compromise."

    What kills me it puts the Republicans off balance and they aren't working to capture the voters they could. Some wits on the right side of the aisle are claiming this is the end of the Democratic party. Hubris. They are totally discounting the debt that the Clinton machine and the Obama party feels owed them loosing to Trump.

    We are going to see a high tech, huge money campaign and fully supported by every news venue supporting the Democrats for 2020 that this has nothing to do with. Just look at how every good thing President Trump has done and is continually minimalized.

    I really wish Republicans were out there actively working with all kinds of people, eating bagels, eating pizza and chewing them Kale salads spinning the good news, spreading the sunshine, etc. It aint happening, they exist in a bubble. They react with emotion and instead of stressing the positive, attack the opposition which simply does not forward their agenda.

    I remember the night Obama won the election. I was in a barroom in Seattle WA drinking all night long. A huge cheer went up outside the bar in the street, I looked up at the television and instantly sobered up, I really hated that feeling. I don't want to have that feeling again.

    It's true,as a group we tend to withdraw and mutter amongst ourselves.
    And yes,scary that they will be running with a big bank account and big backers.
    Media, Hollywood,....
    Laugh when I hear about "John Wick" and how great whats-his-face did a reload.
    We ain't the only ones watching,these films showcase "how evil guns are",pure propaganda..... :(
