This woman is a moron and has no clue what she is talking about. I will not waste time listening to an idiot. If you have a point, please post it and not force people with more than two brain cells to have to wade through her idiocy to discuss the subject.

I don't understand how anyone can use the word "Brilliant" and AOC in the same sentence. Despite a degree in economics (supposedly) she cannot do simple math.

A declaration "...so, I'm the boss now..." gives her no special powers over the laws of physics, mathematics, or the Founding documents of our nation.

Her denial of economic progress under Reagan's politics is a blind ambition to effect a bold lie.


7 years of positive GDP growth each over 3% one a 7%. Unlike Trump, who drove an immediate improvement, Reagan took a whole year to reverse the malaise of Jimmy Carter's Administration. And the effect of his leadership lasted well in to the Clinton years when most of AOC's followers weren't yet born.

Shhhhh, you are not allowed to point to the prosperity engineered by Reagan's policies. His crime in the eyes of Progressives was an antipathy towards an all powerful Federal government. So, he must be the epithet of racism mixed with the communist pose of defending the working class. The Progressive children of the corn are ignorant of history making them perfect vessels to fill with AOC'S romantic nonsense of working class warfare.

In her blathering AOC also attacked Progressive demigod FDR for the New Deal apparently forgetting the myth that it was supposed to have ended the great Depression and more importantly ushered in a massive expansion of the Federal government. Again AOC finds fault based on racism.

Quote:
The New Deal was an extremely economically racist policy that drew literal red line around black and brown communities,” says Ocasio-Cortez.
Never mind that AOC patterned her radical remaking of the US after FDR'S new deal, even adopting the name, her disciples will never question her every utterance no matter how preposterous. AOC'S rants can never be challenged because her so-called brilliance allows her to rewrite history on a whim.

I think anyone with any credibility whatsoever would bulldoze any school that gave that imbecile a degree in economics.

At the very least her parents should demand a refund. But my guess is they are beaming proud of their little snot.

I could not help but think of the logical fallacy known by the Latin term petitio principii (more commonly known as question begging, or even as a circular argument). Basically, it contains the conclusion within the premise.

"I am brilliant as concerning economics; and my degree indicates my brilliance," is surely an excellent example of this logical fallacy.

I have a friend who has a degree in economics and accounting. She is hire by firm all over the world to come and do audits and straighten out their books. She is not only "brilliant" she has a real job that requires her math to actually work.
Does AOC have THAT on her resume'?

Nope

So she cannot claim a measure of her skills in any real world situation.
