    How are those two different? How can you fight for ideas and beliefs if you don't have a sense of idealism?

    AOC literally never proposed that. Are you intentional spreading lies, or did you misread AOC's Green New Deal?

    Okay, and despite leaving social media AOC is still a Congresswoman. Politics isn't an episode of the Kardashians or some ****.
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.

    One involves pure emotion, the other maturity and intelligence. Sorry you can't see the difference.

    She did when asked to clarify what "remove pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from the agricultural sector" meant: Ocasio-Cortez explains ‘farting cows’ comment: ‘We’ve got to address factory farming’ | TheHill. Are you admitting you haven't kept up with her comments?

    Yes, AOC is finding out politics is more involved than a reality TV show.

    I agree, and I believe she got a social media wakeup call. A woman muslim in office with a big mouth wasn't the only recipient of death threats. Politics isn't as ideal as she believed.

    Often attributed to the Godfather movies which used a paraphrase of the quote:

    "If we have learned anything from history, anyone, any nation's leaders, can be targeted for assassination." Gerald Ford when issuing an executive order banning political assassinations. An order rescinded by Bill Clinton one week before he left office.

    One of the Kardashians is going to law school, another, preparing a run for congress. Don't be so sure.

    A Kardashian for President in the future? We'll all being begging for a return of Trump. At least he doesn't reveal his cleavage, his butt at times, but no cleavage.

    Not to worry. That won't happen until she loses her seat in 2020.

    The Kardashians can bribe their way into any school they like but she'd still have to pass the bar.

    You're throwing around meaningless, abstract terms without even attempting to elaborate on them. Clarify your statements and actually say something, Jesus Christ.

    Demonstrable lie, and at least now I understand that you do not wish to have an actual discussion of policy from a place of good faith.

    AOC has fared far better in politics than an overwhelming majority of the worthless suits in both the Republican and Democratic party.

    LOL. I'm confident the adults in the room understood exactly what I was talking about.

    Easy for you to claim but obviously more difficult for you to demonstrate.

    Sorry I burst your little fantasy bubble about AOC. Get used to reality, Pancake. It's the way of the world.

    Adults in the room are still waiting for you to clarify what you are actually trying to say instead of falling behind useless rhetoric that doesn't have a defined meaning.

    Pick up a history textbook and tell me how many revolutionaries were only passively interested in making small, incremental, and reversible changes and compare that to people who aggressively stood by their ideals.

    You're not preaching for reality, you're preaching complacency and empty-headed drivel. This isn't the late 90's, it isn't cool to be a passive cynic anymore.

    While famous for being famous, these women have built economic empires. Daddy was no slouch. Never underestimate the enemy, or those who appear to be less than they are. The one who is studying law, and I confuse them with each other because I don't pay them much attention, earned two business degrees, an undergraduate cum laude. No one has to bribe their way into a law school, there are plenty of empty seats out there. Law schools are very profitable. Don't make assumptions because of a few headlines that are expressing nothing new.

    People mock Paris Hilton, yet she is one of the most successful business women out there. Taylor Swift and her million dollar insured legs is worth a cool $320 mil. Both are players behind politicians.

    You start looking around carefully, and women who give one appearance carry themselves with a business acumen that leaves many of their male peers in the dust. As for political savvy, the most successful work with low profiles in that arena, not necessarily others. A woman I am personally familiar with, a major force in the ski resort business and other investments, whose name is never in the media, yet worth far more than a $bil, has more politicians dependent upon her pockets than any other single donor in the nation. Her sister is said to be behind every single major politician in New England outside of Vermont, and she's wealthier. Neither has ever been married, both have sons, and nobody sees them in action. Smart. Both were drop dead gorgeous when young, partied hard, well educated at seven sisters schools, and often underestimated by competitors. Both Mayflower ladies.

    Nothing in this world is what it seems.
