Saw someone say this on another forum and thought it was hilarious. About AOC’s Green New Deal and how difficult it would be to implement:

The plan proposed by the New Green Deal is completely absurd and unworkable. The level of cost and the scope of the work make it virtually impossible to accomplish.

We’ve all heard that story about the guy who was asked to design the first cell phone and he came up with 100 excuses why it couldn’t be done. Meanwhile, another guy just went ahead and did it.

That’s not what we’re talking about.

We’re talking about someone saying that it would be real, like, neato, and stuff, if we flapped our arms and flew around the room.

I'm sorry, but this is nothing but a bald attempt to silence *any* criticism. She doesn't get to take political positions without anyone having the ability to critique them and disagree. If she can't handle the criticism then she needs to get out of politics.

The like I gave your post was for your comment, not her childish statement.

Like many, I was literally a card-carrying Democrat shortly after reaching voting age. One of the main reasons? In the late '60s/early '70s we were cautioned to ALWAYS challenge authority.my how the times (and the Party) have changed.

Disrupting the "old ways" served it's purpose. The sexual revolution, drugs, breakdown of the family unit.... Now they sweep in making anyone that challenges their new norms look like the bad guy.

It's scary that she'll win re-election easily.
Does she or anyone she represents, understand that making a profit is essential to their own livelihood. If the business does not make a profit. That business cannot sustain itself. If it cannot sustain its self it goes out of business. No taxes to be collected from anyone. Their goes your infrastructure and services. Socialism at it's best.

No, RXCowboy, you're WRONG . AOC is merely counter criticizing her determined critics and won't submit to them as badly as they and you want her to. Ever heard of you gotta give some and you gotta take some? She isn't trying to silence them. Instead, she may be making them feel like they need to step it up more, certainly not cease.
