She's upset Schiff and the impeachment is getting more attention in the media than she is. She is acting just like a spoiled 2yr old who is jealous someone else is getting more attention.

She is on the Bernie train, https://www.foxnews.com/politics/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-campaign-bernie-sanders-iowa , I wonder how that will play in corn-fed Iowa.

She is seriously on a lunatic roll this week. Now she's crying about the evil US attacking "the most vulnerable" pregnant women. It's called "birth tourism" and it's practiced by the 1% elite of the world at the expense of US taxpayers. Funny how for this pregnant women are vulnerable, but for her other stance, they are temporary holding vessels for body parts harvesting.

There's no inconsistency.

I don't know why conservatives keep being surprised by this, but under U.S. law,  you're only a human being if your mother decides you are. It's bizarre, but it's just an absurdity of "choice."

No, I really mean a good job in their field. Put them in a comfortable situation, but in [shudder] Cleveland or Albuquerque.

Now she's running her mouth off that Trump handing out envelopes of cash to blacks to be at his rallies

Quote
    “Allies of Trump have begun holding events in black communities where organizers lavish praise on Trump as they hand out 10s of 1000s of dollars to lucky attendees.”

    GOP will hop on me over the legal definition of a rally to distract from this garbage. They’re so predictable. 🙄

Pardon me while I grab a can of shoe polish, and head to the nearest Trump rally.

Says the chick who went from waitressing to congress...


I have learned a ton browsing reddit over the last few months, though.  The vitriol over the "bootstraps" phrase is real.  Leftists hate it, because it was historically a phrase that did mean to do something impossible.  Somehow it got co-opted to mean dig yourself out of poverty, but in reality it is an impossible action to perform.  So telling a leftist to dig themselves out of poverty by their bootstraps is triggering now...

A radio guy this morning commented that AOC has never found herself stuck in sticky mud in Louisiana.  To paraphrase:  You have to use the boot straps to pull your leg up out of the mud so you can step forward.  Essentially you are pulling yourself up by your bootstraps rather than stand there waiting for someone to come help you.

I have no idea what the origin of the phrase is, but to me it always meant to get to work and move up through your own efforts.

That actually makes a lot of sense for origin. I bet there are other "bootstrap" stories for similar predicaments that mean the same thing - you did it yourself.

This is what they're going on
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/pull_oneself_up_by_one%27s_bootstraps
Leftists have decided that it's impossible to not be poor, so they  the phrase is an insult because you're telling a poor person to do something impossible.

I'm telling you reddit has been eye opening.  The amount of activity in clearly communist sub reddits is frightening.  And the huge undercurrent of entitlement and socialism in there...

The scary part is the people who truly, truly, truly believe it, versus the ones that do the "socialism is cool" peer pressure stuff - kinda like wearing your Che shirt.

We had a link here not to long ago about some woman needing a place to stay that had to be free, in fact I think you had to give her pot and money or something, and a whole lot of other demands she had, and some were wondering if it was parody, but I think it is all too real. There is some subset of people that actually, truly believe that it's their right to have free stuff that must be provided to them, and it's like the people that would be forced to provide it don't exist.

I  truly hope that it is a very small segment of our population, but some days I wonder.

It is hard to judge online comments.  You always have to remember that some of them may not even be real people and often people are very young.
