I don't understand why the 50 million Democrats don't get together and give up petroleum products. Why is it that they can never show us how it's done?

Ok. Let's quit using petroleum products in farming. Which 200 million Americans do you want to starve to death?

As a person that grew up on a farm and is currently surrounded by thousands of acres of tillable ground, how exactly would you propose powering the farm equipment used to grow and harvest crops that provide the very food your body requires to survive? Even the Amish people that live just down the road from here, use modern farm machinery because a teams of horses pulling plows, would never come close to replacing a single farm tractor.

It appears to me those dumb m***erf**k*rs who kiss Ocasio's ass don't care doodly squat about reasoning. I say ignore them, and if they choose to attempt to shove their "ideal" down our throat, well, they should consider themselves to have been warned not to try it.

LOLZ, Socialist Girl's idea is so retarded she took it down off her website.

'Green New Deal' document disappears from Ocasio-Cortez's website after receiving massive social media mockery

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) released a document Thursday explaining her plan to battle global warming through legislation called the "New Green Deal," but it disappeared from her website after being roundly mocked on social media.

The FAQ document, for "frequently asked questions," outlined many of the goals that guided the "New Green Deal."

Many of the suggestions were mocked on social media as the document began to receive more attention.

"The most bizarre passage in the Green New Deal is the admission that after they've junked every car in America," tweeted commentator Megan McArdle, "replaced every power plant, and renovated every single building within the space of a decade, they might not get around to slaughtering all the cows by their deadline."

A few hours later, the document was erased from her website, and the link that was publicized went to a "404 error" page.

However, the ridicule continued on social media, especially from figures on the right side of the political aisle.

"Reads like a poorly-argued paper from a college sophomore after years of mindless left-wing indoctrination," said Pete Hegseth of Fox News.

"The Green New Deal is what happens when the tide pod eating generation decides to make public policy," said Erick Erickson.

"Whoever wrote the New Green Deal deserves a job at the Onion," joked Natalie Johnson of the Hill.

"Now that we see what the Green New Deal is, anyone who takes it seriously cannot be taken seriously," responded Buck Sexton.

"Whoever wrote AOC's Green New Deal document is a full-scale idiot," agreed Ben Shapiro. "There is no way to read that document as a rational person and think otherwise."

Yes. I was surprised to learn that hybrid electric aircraft that are more fuel efficient are actually in development right now.

Those who make such proposals should lead by example.

Have you EVER met a liberal that put his money or labor where his mouth is?

There is not one Liberal on the planet that has ever given up ANYTHING for their cause. It's always up to someone else.
