"Latinos should be exempt from immigration laws"

As I always say, the only immigrants the left seems to think exist are those from South of the border.

You seem to be assuming she is actually capable of thinking.

She has no idea. To her it's just a word.

My late wife was a Latina. She considered herself a Latina and was proud of it. She died before gaining U.S. citizenship, so she made no pretense of being "American," even though her native country is in South America. And she absolutely refused to consider herself "Hispanic." Her view? "I'm not from Spain, how can I be Hispanic? These classifications are stupid!"

So was she from Latium?

We don't need 70 or 90%.  We just need to limit the long term capital gains rate so that the uber rich aren't paying less than their secretaries.

Phase it out at around $100k or so so that people who worked for their money aren't paying more taxes than those that simply got returns from investments.

Or we could make everyone, regardless of type or amount of income, pay the same rate.  At flat 15% for every dollar earned in any way is probably enough to cover the budget.

Agreed, and I've always thought that 15 percent might be the right number. I think there might be some "floor" beneath which income isn't taxed at all, but that should be low -- like around the poverty level. Maybe the first $20,000 or $25,000 isn't taxed, and all income above that is taxed at the same rate.

Or here's a novel idea.  Eliminate the 16th amendment, let the states levy taxes as they will, and shrink the size of the federal government back down.
The 16th is the amendment that killed federalism.

It probably wouldnĺt surprise many of you here to know I read/have read a lot from what is called the alt-right and neo-reactionary alternative ômediaö.

I ran across this take on AOC and just have to share.

http://www.amerika.org/politics/aoc/

Just to make it clear, this guy is a nihilist and his prescriptions do not represent my views on all the current issues of the day in any way. While Iĺm cynical and skeptical about much I find life bursting at the seams with meaning.

His analysis of AOC resonates with me.

I do believe she has the similar gift/skill that Trump has and we shouldnĺt right her off as crazy, nutty, dumb etc.

It could be all hokum also, but Trump becoming President and his odd effectiveness after such an unlikely win has forced me to think outside the box about a bunch of stuff.

Remember, sheĺs not trying to convince us, she has a target audience she is trying to persuade.

Jonah Goldberg had a very similar take in NRO awhile back. I think it's pretty accurate.
In other words, AOC is quite brilliantly playing a lot of people for suckers. She already has more Twitter followers than the other 60 incoming freshman Democrats combined.

Ocasio-Cortez, wittingly or not, has appropriated a technique mastered by President Trump.

Trump prefers positive attention, but heĺll take negative attention over no attention every time, in part because he knows his supporters will intensify their dedication to him in response to allegedly unfair attacks. AOC is doing the same thing. By forcing partisans to take sides, she generates controversy. Controversy attracts media attention. Media attention generates even more controversy. And so on.

As with Trump, sometimes she clearly knows what sheĺs doing, and other times she simply displays her ignorance. But at this stage, it doesnĺt matter. The more right-wing partisans attack her, the more left-wing partisans rally to her. The more left-wingers rally to her, the more justified the Right feels in paying attention to her.
She's building a brand and at this stage, any attention is going to help her.

I'm not sure I'd call it "brilliant".  Her twitter following is an echo chamber.  She is surrounded by people who prop her stupidity up.
But it's not to be underestimated.

I remember reading an op-ed I think it was by and not about Obama and pretty sure it was before he was elected senator or just after. My takeaway was crap, they're going to make him president. And they did.

Indeed. Trump is Trump and will change when circumstances dictate it is advantageous to do so. She really, truly believes her commie stuff. Though it has been interesting watching the backpedaling and blaming the conservatives on the green deal thing. As I read somewhere else, it sounded like something a bunch of high schoolers put together and somehow thought the adults would take seriously. That seems to be true of most everything I have seen from her as of yet.

Only things I can come up with are

A: Install cow fart filters on every cow
B: Pass a law making cows farts illegal
C: Employ the Nazi "Final Solution" model
