    On the way to work today I saw a Nissan X-Terra all tricked out with overlanding gear. It was on the side of the road with a flat tire. The driver was out of his car, off to the side staring at his phone. The AAA tow truck guy was there changing the flat tire.

    Yes that's it. I understand her fine, she doesn't understand simple math. i find her amusing because the stuff she says is ridiculous. Her plans are not feasible and she doesn't do her homework before she makes ridiculous statements. The world will end in 12 years, $21 trillion missing, Medicare for all, unemployment rate is so low because people are working 2 jobs, including funeral costs in healthcare calculation,,,,,,,,,,,, Not to say other pols don't say stupid stuff, but it's usually because they're lying rather than too dumb to know it's stupid She is charismatic and she has a lot of people coming together, but who is going to pay for all of these pipe dreams?

    People like AOC bother a lot of people because their thinking about what is possible has been crammed into a tiny little box by our corporate/0.1% overlords for so long that when they try to think outside that box it's too painful.

    People who have nothing have nothing to lose; lower and middle class Americans have just enough they're afraid to lose to make them fearful of change so they ridicule people who propose change.

    Just make them drive and down a sixer. You won’t even have to share.

    Unless they’re the insufferable twat version of Mormon, in which case - vibes.

    Drew Brees buying diamonds as an investment. I always thought diamonds were terrible investments because the supply was being throttled by DeBeers. Apparently Brees either doesn't have or doesn't trust his financial adviser.

    SAN DIEGO -- A jury has awarded more than $6 million to New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees in a lawsuit that claimed a San Diego County jeweler sold him overpriced diamonds.

    The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that a Superior Court jury made the award Friday in a fraud suit Brees and his wife filed against a La Jolla jeweler last year. Brees wasn't in court.

    The suit claimed that Vahid Moradi improperly valued gems the Breeses bought as an investment at $15 million, when they were worth millions less.

    I worked with a guy at Xerox that had a big diamond embedded in his eye tooth. When I asked him why he did that he said, "You never know when you'll need to get out of town NOW! and need some cash." The guy led an "interesting" life as I recall and it made sense.

    Why worry about how to pay for it ? Just cut taxes on rich people and corporations.

    non-intentional thread hijack on:

    seriously ? aoc is smarter than most because of questions she asked in a hearing ? the concept that all those questions were provided for her to ask isn't possible and probable by many who want her to look good in public hearings ?

    if aoc were smarter than most, she would have done well enough in her economics degree to go to grad school or find placement somewhere from her academic record over being a bartender. sorry, she's not smarter than most and at the same time, not very knowledgeable. given the office and the people/organizations behind her. for instance her green bill, she should have plenty of examples of the rate of progress in efficiencies of different green technologies to make the bill more palatable. sorry, but those questions in that hearing just made her look smart.

    .
    I was going to say the same thing, but I respect OG a lot cuz he seems an intelligent dentist. While I don't agree with his assessment of AOC, I assumed he was having a bad day or maybe he was trying to make a funny. I'm not into politics, but somebody showed me a couple of links to some crazy (IMO) shit that she's been saying and I found it amusing, hence the post in this thread. Carry on.

    I don't know--bartending sounds a lot more fun and more lucrative than grad school or an entry level job for an international relations and economics major.
