Miami won't exist 'in a few years' - 09-13-2019, 04:11 PM

We need to be realistic': AOC predicts Miami won't exist 'in a few years' without Green New Deal

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/n...green-new-deal

https://youtu.be/MhteoMQ_LPI

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez predicted that Miami will no longer exist in just a couple of years if the Green New Deal is not passed.

"When it comes to climate change, what is not realistic is not responding with a solution on the scale of the crisis — because what's not realistic is Miami not existing in a few years," the New York Democrat said Wednesday at an NAACP forum. "So we need to be realistic about the problem."

Ocasio-Cortez, 29, touted the Green New Deal as the solution to that problem.

The freshman lawmaker rolled out the proposal in February, which was widely criticized for an FAQ section that advocated for ending air travel and meat production. Ocasio-Cortez said the section was not meant to be published and blamed a staffer who "had a really bad day at work."

In July, then-Ocasio-Cortez chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti revealed that the Green New Deal was not "originally a climate thing at all ... we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing."

Chakrabarti, 33, said the Green New Deal was about changing the economy to make it more equitable.

"I think ... it’s dual. It is both rising to the challenge that is existential around climate and it is building an economy that contains more prosperity," he said. "More sustainability in that prosperity — and more broadly shared prosperity, equitability, and justice throughout."

Yes, we need a cheeseburger tax immediately!




In order to continue advancing their illogical arguments modern liberals have to pretend not to know things…

It was cool +low humidity today, good turbocharged car weather. I burned a tank of fuel for no reason!


If you tolerate this, then your children will be next.


I have never quoted someone in my signature....but I found such a shallow idiotic comment like this worthy!

Straight from the short bus to the bar to the federal government.

Since politics has become a profession, which was never intended by our founders, perhaps there should be standards of qualification, oversight, regulation, and mandatory continuing education. Perhaps a high standard to meet and maintain. A law degree would likely be a disqualification for obvious reasons.

Nah. Too many lawyers in government and they would never go for it.

So we get bar tenders and real estate developers.

Honestly, she couldn't have qualified to be my secretary or assistant, nor could she do the job anyway. Low aptitude, poor intelligence, educationally deficient, poor ethics, poor work ethic, bad attitude, and limited world view would all disqualify her.

She is several years past her apex.

Perfect for politics in the modern world.

Sadly it fits too many Republicans as well.

The world is changing. Values are changing and degrading.

Liberalism is a boat anchor dragging. It threatens to take the whole ship into the rocks.

Reason and rationality are repeatedly thrown under the bus.

Miami is a small price to pay.

If we were actually to lose Miami. So be it.

My great great great grandchildren will weep a tear
when a politician says Miami only has 10 years left.

Are you kidding me. We went through 8 years in the wrong direction. Out of the blue, a guy comes in and says he loves America and hates socialism and communism and wants to change direction. I didn't believe him, but given the choice in 2016, I thought "what the hell - - anything is better than that lying American hating money grubbing piece of worthless shit running on the Democratic ticket". It's happening. The media is fighting it, the socialistic teachers are fighting it, Congress is fighting it, even fools on here are fighting it. But the hope is alive and it was dead a few years ago.

Sad times? No way, I think we might be seeing a second chance.

Apparently she doesn't understand how water works. If it were true, the entire coastline of Florida and most of the people would be underwater.

He's certainly brought a lot more Americans together in this country. I'll give him that.
A lot less division.


God bless each and every one of you
