Knock Down The House

Netflix has a great new documentary covering Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and all the other women taking over the House of Representatives in the USA. Soul stirring!

Women have been such a positive influence on US politics. Prohibition was one of the great successes of the last century -- if you're a mafioso.

At 72 years old, I am glad that I probably don't have enough time to be part of your hope for the future, because she doesn't represent any future that I want to be a part of.

I just watched some of this, I kid you not this is a real quote about 10 min in:

AOC:

“My experience in “hospitality” really prepared me for my role in government”

My wife hates me

Yes. A dystopian future. Capitalism is the only way to move forward and our system of government, while the worst possible system is still better than all of the others.

AOC, her ilk and their supporters are like students in a class who are cheating off the test paper of the dumbest student in the class hoping that placing the answers on their test will make them somehow correct.

They are hoping socialism is the great fix for the world when actually the best fix for the world are two little things called self-reliance and hard work.

No one is more responsible for the success or lack of success than the person one sees in the mirror every morning. The feel-good false hope policies that AOC and her ilk promulgate don't do anything but make our country weak and ordinary. Their goal is to destroy American Exceptionalism and I will do everything I can to make them fail. They are a horror show of massive proportions and people are too stupid to see it.

Nothing that AOC has proposed is a viable answer to any question or a solution to any problem.

The intervention of government is 100% responsible for the massive increases in college tuition. AOC and her ilk propose to solve this problem with...more government.

Economically, there is simply no way that anyone will end up better off in the socialist utopia that the left is pushing. It leads to tyranny and poverty, not prosperity. If you want to make things better for future generations, do whatever you can to turn the tide against the progressive socialist agenda.

It truly saddens me they way the younger generations have been indoctrinated in progressive dogma over the last 50 years. Infiltrating the schools was a masterstroke by the left. The best thing conservatives and libertarians could possibly do is to commit to the same exact course of action and take back the educational system.

The crap I see fed to my high school kids is truly maddening. I'm doing what I can to fight against it, but the state of education right now is really frightening.

I call bullshit!

The older generation had been saying this about the younger generation for millennia. My generation was called lazy when I was a teenager working, and my coworkers called teenagers lazy when I was older. It's all complete BS.

I work with/supervise a number of millennials. They are some of the finest, smartest, most hard working people I know. I understand the impulse to make fun of some of the attitudes and politics that get reported about the millennial generation--and some of it is certainly true--but there are lots of good ones out there who really have their heads screwed on straight.

The millennials actually give me hope. They tend to be socially liberal, but they also see through much of the political hype coming out of DC, and they are fiercely anti-authoritarian. I think they will end up being good voters on many issues that matter, like economic policy and liberty.

So you're just a bitter young man?

You're just a typical bitter name-calling Trump supporter.

Edit: i'm watching hockey, Feeling very aggressive. Be careful with the name-calling.

Socialism doesnt work because big government does not work. Giving your money to a beurocrat is like giving your cash to some random guy in a casino and telling him to be careful with it. Then shaking your head as he plays fast and loose with your money. Easiest thing to do in this world is to spend other people's money.

Big government does suck, we also need to protect us from big companies. Look at the comparison for the manned capsules for space X versus Boeing.

It's amazing how much better space X is than Boeing, for less money.

I think you can extrapolate that to the entire defense industry.

Well well well. Look at that we do have some common ground.
