Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez


                Alexandria Occasional-Cortex Ocasio-Cortez has been on a roll lately! The Democrats dashing debutant keeps adding to her already long list of faux pas and idiocies as if there’s no tomorrow. Maybe that’s because she believes there isn’t going to be any tomorrow soon. She recently told an audience gathered to commemorate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day that, “the world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.” (Don’t stick your head in a gas oven yet, theoretically she could become president in under six years, so she’d still have 6 years to save the planet). The crowd applauded.
                Non-cerebral-Cortez also revved up that crowd by averring that it’s “immoral” that America’s economic system “allows billionaires to exist.” I don’t think she meant they should be summarily killed, but rather that a decent economic system wouldn’t allow them to exist in the first place. What is truly immoral is a state-run economy where a literal handful of people are filthy-rich and the rest of the populace has no chance to make anything of themselves. What is truly immoral is government telling citizens how much money they are “allowed to make.” And keep. She did note that liberal billionaires like Bill Gates are not “necessarily” immoral people. The crowd cheered heartily.
                AOC remarked that she thinks it’s wrong “that you can work 100 hours and not feed your kids.” Which is impossible unless you’re snorting coke like Charlie Sheen and dining only at Ruth’s Cris Steak Houses. She also said that she doesn’t think large corporations should be able to pay their employees “less than a minimum wage.” They can’t. That’s what a minimum wage means.
                Then it was on to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Colbert noted her aggressive tweets attacking GOP members and that she and some of her fellow freshman members of congress have been urged by senior politicians to tone it down and go slower. He then asked her, “On a scale of zero to some, how many f*cks do you give?” She answered, “I think it’s, uuuh, zero.” “F*ck” is a word much in favor with the new crop of far-left Democrats and their  cheerleaders.
                And yet, a new poll by Axios/SurveyMonkey found that 74% of Democrats would consider voting for Occasional-Cortex if she were old enough to run for president. (She isn’t. She’s 29. One must be 35 to run for president of the United States).
                AOC, a 29-year-old female, is now making over five times the median per-person income of a garden-variety U.S. citizen from flyover country. Yet she couldn’t correctly identify even one of the three branches of the government in which she now serves when recently queried. (See my post of 11/26/2018).
                No wonder why it is said that ignorance is bliss.

    At least to the ignorant.
