Are you saying the non-producers were the rich? Were those the ones that got rich during the glory days of the 30's & 40's
there were non producing citiens who had black lung or couldnt get a job (appalachia/harlem) but was easier to move then
yes we middle class paid taxes to build the interstate and local highways

The, "Poor girl from the Bronx" story is crumbling like an Israeli wedding hall dance floor.

She's tryin' to change her bio but ya can't erase the internet. She posted the lie and can't take it back now no matter how much she edits her profile.

So, to review, Socialist Girl moved to one of the richest counties in the country as a small child and lived there almost her entire lfe, yet claims she is just a poor girl from the Bronx.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez changes campaign bio after truth is revealed about where she grew up

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the self-declared “democratic-socialist” from the Bronx, is accused of changing her biography on her campaign website days after she was criticized for misleading voters about where she grew up.

Ocasio-Cortez received national acclaim after she defeated 10-term congressman Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) in the New York Democratic primary last month. She will be running as the Democratic candidate for New York’s 14th congressional district this November and is almost guaranteed to win.

What are the details?

As the Journal News noted, Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign biography originally stated: “She ended up attending public school 40 minutes north in Yorktown, and much of her life was defined by the 40-minute commute between school and her family in the Bronx.”

However, the sentence was rather misleading. It was later revealed that Ocasio-Cortez’s “girl from the Bronx” moniker was dishonest because her family moved away from New York City when she was 5 years old. They moved about an hour north to the ritzy suburb of Yorktown Heights in Westchester County, one of the wealthiest counties in the U.S.

The website biography has since been updated, but it still doesn’t explicitly state that Ocasio-Cortez’s move to Westchester County was permanent.

“She ended up attending public school in Yorktown — 40 minutes north of her birthplace. As a result, much of her early life was spent in transit between her tight-knit extended family in the Bronx and her daily student life” the bio now reads.

According to the Journal News, records indicate Ocasio-Cortez lived with her mother and brother in their Yorktown Heights home until 2016. From the report:

Ocasio-Cortez was 2 years old when her father, Sergio Ocasio-Roman, bought a modest home in Yorktown for $150,000. The family lived in the Parkchester section of the Bronx at the time and moved to the house in Yorktown a few years later.

Her father died in September 2008, just as she was starting her sophomore year at Boston University. The house was deeded to her mother, the executor of her father’s will, in 2012.

Westchester County land records show that Ocasio-Cortez was living there with her mother and brother in 2016 when they sold the home for $355,000.

Ocasio-Cortez has since moved back to the same Parkchester neighborhood in the Bronx where she was born.

[QUOTE=ShivaTD;940337]The labor participation rate in the 1950's and 1960's was about 58%. That went up to 67%, as I recall, during the Reagan years and is now back down to about 62%. In the 1950's and 1960's a single income earner could generally support the household but that ability has declined since then forcing more spouses to work as opposed to staying at home and raising the children.

So there were more non-producing citizens in the 1950's and 1960's than at any time since then.




[B]Hmmm, yeah your right Shiva! B]. Women were not working, but the labor participation rate was still at 58% That tells me that over 95% of men were working, that's huge, don't you think?

If our LP rate is at 62% now, what would happen to it ?? if most of the women stayed home like in the 50's and 60's ?

I would say that rate would fall far below the 58% rate of the 50's and 60's, wouldn't you? Easily as far down as 35%

Based on your info, I think we can agree that far more family's had employment back in the 50's and 60's than they do now.


Unfortunately you would have to call stay at home moms, non-producers, and I don't agree with that. I believe they produce a lot more for society than people realize.

This makes it a little easier for the left to understand why Socialism doesn't work.

To be completely honest, Liberalism and Socialism have become synonymous. Both pretty much believe in the same ideas and philosophies. It didn't used to be like that, but in recent years the left have become more and more extreme.

Sorry to go off-topic but the libs in this thread have already did that to distract from the lyin' socialist so I figure it won't hurt to slightly veer off the road.
About 2006/7 was when they went full-on partisan in my opinion. They warmed up during President Bill Clinton's first presidential campaign in the 90's, exercised during both of President G.W. Bush's campaigns and presidency.
It really became apparent when John McCain campaigned for President against Barack Obama. A MSM that had for years touted that the GOP should run a moderate Republican, such as John McCain, completely abandoned that thought the moment John McCain became the GOP candidate for President.
Plus, lets not forget how the MSM treated a woman by the name of Condoleeza Rice as opposed to how they treated a man by the name of Barack Obama. If that difference isn't full on partisan politics I don't know what is.
