I love AOC. She's the antidote to all the maggots in the USA.

Ocasio-Cortez: I give 'zero' f---s about pushback from other Democrats

By Aris Folley - 01/22/19 08:10 AM EST





Freshman New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) in an interview late Monday said she gives "zero" f---s about criticism she’s received from members of her own party.


“Now, congresswoman, for you and other freshmen members of Congress, you're getting a fair amount of pushback from even members of your own party saying ‘wait your turn, go slow, don't ask for so much so fast right now, you're new, wait your turn for everything and don't make waves,'" late-night host Stephen Colbert said to the rising progressive star on CBS's "The Late Show."


“I want to ask this question in a respectful manner, knowing also that you're from Queens, so you will understand this question,” he continued.


“And the BX,” Ocasio-Cortez, who is also from the Bronx, laughingly injected.


“On a scale from zero to some, how many f---s do you give?”


After taking a moment to deliberate, Ocasio-Cortez reached into her side and pulled out her hand to make a circle, saying: “I think it’s zero.”


“That’s my thought!” Colbert exclaimed.



And I always thought this would be
the land of milk and honey
Oh but I came to find out that it's
all hate and money
And there's a canopy of greed holding me down.

Gotta love how the far right are having snowflake attacks over her.

"One thing he (Trump) does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him."- Bill Clinton

Without question the worst president we’ve ever had- Harry Reid on trump.

No question, Trump is racist- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

I would love for her to be president, but I'm pretty sure she never will be. The military industrial complex will never let a woman be in charge of the biggest force in the world. Unless she's seriously twisted like Hillary, women don't have the heart for the kind of wars/destruction/military budget the MIC desires.

She's definitely exceeding my expectations so far, last year I thought she'd disappear into the political machine like most other congresspeople in their first term but what she lacks in official internal power within the party she makes up for with being able to get the public to talk about things like a Green New Deal, a 70% marginal tax rate, Medicare For All, etc. Like Bernie in '16 she's helping to push the overton window here in America to the left, the majority of the things that she (and Bernie) proposes have a majority approval rating now, some things even have a majority approval rating within the Republican party.

Though she has gained some fairly significant official power though, she's on some financial committee that usually the banks control apparently, but I'm sure they'll face some opposition from AOC, and she's also just now been appointed to the Oversight Committee which holds a decent amount of power as well.

I'm pretty sure the Dem establishment is going to be working hard to primary the hell out of her in 2020.

AOC says Trump's wall is like the Berlin Wall. I agree. The oil billionaires in the USA (and the world) know that climate refugees will be heading north and they are terrified.



The right is also terrified of a Democratic president declaring national emergencies over global warming.


Yesterday it was 92 degrees in the shade here in Miami. We need to stop making billionaires richer and start supporting the poor and middle class.


By raising the minimum wage, billionaires will get richer because poor people spend their money and it floods upwards.

92? That's higher than her IQ.
When people work hard to make a living, they are more inclined to dismiss her and her handout thinking.

So as proven by Hillary Clinton and numerous other leaders worldwide of a similar ilk, it's really less about 'women aren't allowed' and more about people with certain traits and values aren't allowed. I mean the democrats certainly threw Bernie Sanders under the bus.

We need a new name for right wingers.

It's not apt to call them conservative, traditional or anything like that. Their essence is that of egotistical tribalism and cold hearts. The descriptor for their views should reflect their lack of empathy but at the same time it needs to be a neutral name that doesn't inherently moralise.

What I'm talking about is the perspective that poor people are lazy and deserve poverty and that hard work is the antidote to any malady that may befall a person.

Those teeth need their own zip code.

I guess we've crossed the lunatic threshold already so whatever. Bush was just plain dumb. Obama wasn't a complete lunatic but he was a lying POS who was entirely too popular for what he actually did (he basically screwed the people who voted for him and they loved him for it). Then came Trump, which, I don't even know WTF to say about that but it's pretty clear something has gone WAY off the rails when this crap is what passes for the political situation in the US. I am just baffled by both "sides" of the Trump "debate". How anyone can even take this guy seriously is beyond me. There's clearly some ****ed up **** going on in the government that no one is talking about so we get this circus instead.

And now we've got this ignorant socialist, which the left wingers love because there's nothing they love more than crazy (which is why they're having such a good time with the Trump circus). I would say that she's only popular because she's cute but it's not true because full blown socialism (And I use that term very loosely because what it actually is is totalitarianism that's loosely based on socialist philosophy and rhetoric that they actually want) has been the defacto agenda of the real left wing in this country for decades.

The bottom line is that there's nothing good that's going to come out of this situation unless you like chaos and insanity (some do but I've had enough of that **** over the last 20 years). When you get right down to it, EVERYONE who is anyone in American politics today is really aiming for a very large and totalitarian government and that's pretty messed up that people don't see that. It just plain doesn't matter which side "wins" when that is their goal.

i don't think AOC in any way is a supporter of Antifa, the USSR or any of the other purported "socialist" countries like China and North Korea etc... she may be a wide-eyed utopian but she sheems to be shaking up the status quo and that's defi what the US needs.

i'm only saying this because US politics influence the entire (western/eurocentric) political climate.

You maintain that Nazis are too rare to be an issue, but when it comes to democrats every last one is an extremist socialist hell bent on becoming China.

You don't really seem in your right mind if you think like that. Or maybe it really is your "right" mind and there's no way to fix it now.

Nazis are not rare. They're just relatively rare, compared to radical socialists. Nazis also tend to be rather ignorant and uneducated (or poorly educated) so they don't really pose the same risk as highly educated socialist radicals who are on the exact opposite end of the spectrum. Neither place is a place you want to go if they should ever get their way. Or I should say that neither place is a place I personally would want to go. I don't know what you want but judging from your posts it seems like you'd be fine as long as you can get drugs.

So she will probably be the VP to Bernie Sanders in 2020. I think that's great, but maybe smarter politically if the switched it around. Now it looks like shed be a VP cause she's the woman to his man.

I don't use drugs anymore, even alcohol. As long as I can grow weed and other plants like kratom and coffee I'm satisfied these days.
