    1) Cite your sources. This is an opinion piece from the National Review... Not exactly an unbiased source.

    2) There is nothing whatsoever in the actual text of the New Green Deal which mentions anything about anyone "unwilling or unable to work." Read it for yourself.

    3) The link to the claimed FAQ doesn't work.

    If the most substantial complaint you have about the New Green Deal is something that isn't anywhere in the framework itself, then it sounds like you've got nothing.

    AOC's New Green Deal LITERALLY stated that people UNWILLING to work should get paid and mentioned FARTING COWS.


    At the time this story was published, the FAQ page with the phrase "farting cows" appeared to have been removed from Ocasio-Cortez's website. Fox News' John Roberts reported that the language was tweaked to "emissions from cows" in an update, which also appears to have been deleted.

    Look, just because AOC's rollout of her brain fart was an utter failure, doesn't mean this language wasn't in the proposal before she had it pulled down and changed/eliminated some language.

    Vis doesn't like to respond when he's wrong. He just stepped in the fail puddle and doesn't know how to handle the moment.

    There is dangerous levels of AOC on the forum, if we do not turn back now and stop posting so many, it could create a tear in the space-time continuum.

    Isn't it amazing how much attention and anger she's unleashed in The Cult and their posters here? She must be be doing something right for them to attack her like this. It seems The Cult is suffering from AOCDS. There's a simple reason why they're reacting this way, it's called fear...

    "...anger is the emotion of invulnerability. Even though the self-empowerment (read, “adrenaline rush”) it immediately offers is bogus, it can yet be extremely tempting to get “attached”—or even “addicted”—to it if we frequently experience another as threatening..."

    AOC is good fodder and btw, "the cult" (so 2017!) loves her and wants to thank her in advance for getting Trump re-elected in 2020.
