Excellent explanation of what so many Americans feel about Trump, and speaking of frightening, Trump is POTUS and the most powerful man in the world.

Is it? Or is it just the sound bites you get?

Did you listen to SOTU speech? Or any of his speeches, all the way though? I am going to guess you didn't.

He credited everyone, and how complicated the world is. Even the women in white stood up to cheer... but strange enough they didn't stand when Trump mentioned the success of African Americans, and Hispanics.

Trump is POTUS and the most powerful man in the world.

And yet for two years nothing materially has happened....

I couldn't imagine the destruction someone like AOC would have on the system, she has no skin in the game.

If you think "the wall" was simplified view of the world ... here is some AOC gems for the NewGreendDeal

"Upgrade or replace every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency."

"a 10-year plan to mobilize every aspect of American society at a scale not seen since World War 2 to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions."

"It's unclear if we will be able to decommission every nuclear plant within 10 years, but the plan is to transition off of nuclear and all fossil fuels as soon as possible."

"Build out highspeed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary".

"Ensure that all GND jobs are union jobs that pay prevailing wages and hire local."

And now for the coup de grâce
"the question isn't how will we pay for it, but what will we do with our new shared prosperity".

God I love her ....

My post made no mention of her tax proposal.

#18 | Posted by JeffJ at 2019-02-07 02:16 PM | Reply

This is some of what is in her New Green Deal:

Ban affordable energy. GND calls for the elimination of all fossil fuel energy production, the lifeblood of American industry and life, which includes not only all oil but also natural gas -- one of the cheapest sources of American energy, and one of the reasons the United States has been able to lead the world in carbon-emissions reduction.

Eliminate nuclear energy. The GND also calls for eliminating all nuclear power, one of the only productive and somewhat affordable "clean" energy sources available to us, in 11 years. This move would purge around 20 percent of American energy production so you can rely on intermittent wind for your energy needs.

Eliminate 99 percent of cars. To be fair, under the GND, everyone will need to retrofit their cars with Flintstones-style foot holes or pedals for cycling. The authors state that the GND would like to replace every "combustion-engine vehicle" -- trucks, airplanes, boats, and 99 percent of cars -- within ten years. Charging stations for electric vehicles will be built "everywhere," though how power plants will provide the energy needed to charge them is a mystery.

Gut and rebuild every building in America. Markey and Cortez want to "retrofit every building in America" with "state of the art energy efficiency." I repeat, "every building in America." That includes every home, factory, and apartment building, which will all need, for starters, to have their entire working heating and cooling systems ripped out and replaced with ... well, with whatever technology Democrats are going invent in their committee hearings, I guess.

Eliminate air travel. GND calls for building out "highspeed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary." Good luck Hawaii! California's high-speed boondoggle is already in $100 billion dollars of debt, and looks to be one of the state's biggest fiscal disasters ever. Amtrak runs billions of dollars in the red (though, as we'll see, trains will also be phased out). Imagine growing that business model out to every state in America?

A government-guaranteed job. The bill promises the United States government will provide every single American with a job that includes a "family-sustaining wage, family and medical leave, vacations, and a pension." You can imagine that those left in the private sector would be funding these through some unspecified "massive" taxation. On the bright side, when you're foraging for food, your savings will be worthless.

Free education for life. GND promises free college or trade schools for every American.

A salubrious diet. The GND promises the government will provide "healthy food" to every American (because there are no beans or lettuce in your local supermarket, I guess).

A house. The GND promises that the government will provide, "safe, affordable, adequate housing" for every American citizen. I call dibs on an affordable Adams Morgan townhouse. Thank you, Ocasio-Cortez.

Free money. The GND aims to provide, and I am not making this up, "economic security" for all who are "unable or unwilling" to work. Just to reiterate: if you're unwilling to work, the rest of us will have your back.

Bonus insanity: Ban meat. Ocasio-Cortez admits that we can't get zero emissions in 10 years "because we aren't sure that we'll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast." The only way to get rid of farting cows is to get rid of beef.

It's called exaggeration for effect. According to this proposal, all cars need to be electric. The only way for those who don't have an electric car and can't afford to replace their used car would be to punch a hole in the floor board and drive it Flintstones style - it was clearly a joke. An actual piece of legislation would probably include a grandfather clause.

Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, and Kirsten Gillibrand -- all of whom have announced they're running for president -- co-sponsored the Senate resolution, introduced by Democratic Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts.

The resolution acknowledges the U.S. government's responsibility to divest from fossil fuels and revolutionize the American energy industry by investing in green infrastructure and jobs. Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is expected to announce a presidential bid, is also a co-sponsor.

I'm just not feeling it. What understanding is lacking?

She's just spouting shallow, obvious truisms.

You don't cure cancer by learning and stating it's uncontrolled cell growth and spread due to random genetic mutations.

She may very well know more than that and didn't think it appropriate to brain dump in the given context.

But what she said shouldn't be applauded as some crazy insightful, knowledgeable position at the forefront of progressivism.

You can believe she knows what she is talking about because she has a minor in economics.

So. You don't cure cancer by learning (wtf?) and identifying what it is.

You do it by praying to god.

Got it.

Thanks for all your "let's not rock to boat" posts.

But what she said is crazy insightful and knowledgeable, for a lot of Americans.

You gotta step out of your bubble and realize a lot (majority) of Americans don't eat, sleep and breath politics.

#89 well that just highlights the larger problem-people are so disengaged they don't even know that this is taking place.

An ignorant but highly opinionated electorate...what could possibly go wrong?
