Re: Calling 2024 for AOC

Again, the pretense that her situation is similar to the general public's doesn't hold up. Again, she never represented it as being similar to a situation faced by the general public. No, people in this thread arguing with me did. I definitely view it as a situation where "the general public" is mo...

Re: Calling 2024 for AOC

You're still not addressing her point. I've addressed it sufficiently. If anything, she was perfectly capable of getting a loan. Her alternative being having to obtain a short term loan at usurious rates makes her case more than it goes against it. I think having a minimalist Congressional dorm so ...

Re: Calling 2024 for AOC

I'd be curious to know how many of those poverty-level DC residents have section 8 vouchers or subsidized housing, live with relatives, or avail themselves of other cheap-housing options AOC did not have. Likewise. Also, I wonder how many could have a chance of getting a loan on the basis of being ...

Re: Calling 2024 for AOC

None of that relates to her actual complaint , which was "until I get my first paycheck, I can't afford a DC apartment." *looks at his post* A third of the people in DC make under the poverty line, but they manage to live there. So it's not that she can't afford a place, but that she can't afford a...

Re: Calling 2024 for AOC

That doesn't mystify me at all. A third of the people in DC make under the poverty line, but they manage to live there. They probably aren't also paying rent on their regular residence in New York, too. They probably don't have the money to pay the rent on AOC's New York residence in the first plac...

Re: Calling 2024 for AOC

The Sandy thing, shouted as if it's revealing some dark secret, is maybe even more mystifying than the dancing thing. IMO, even the sneers about her being unable to afford a DC apartment in addition to the NYC apartment she already has are downright baffling. How out-of-touch with normal (as oppose...

Just in case you all were wondering if I'm really crazy. It's a pleasing crazy. If we have to have a jobs program, why not running around, picking up people walking through the desert, and giving them water, basic medical care, and a ride to civilization? Or Californian cities, too. There are peopl...

She can spin up re-seeming outrage about the administration's worst policy. I can like her for that.

She could lay waste to the economy if she means anything she says. Don't you normally bitch about hyperbole? I submit that she's not demonstrably worse than Trump by that strandard.

So they Ted Turnered a war. I'll pass They did substantially more than that. They added sound, remastered the images, and did frame correction to compensate for the different frame rates. It strips away the weird surreal feeling footage of that time normally has. Especially the sped up feeling it h...
