    As further proof that the right wing conservatives are bat shit crazy, a woman named Jane Chastain just wrote into the ultra-conservative World Net Daily urging its readers to boycott Girl Scout Cookies because AOC was a Girl Scout when she was younger. In addition, this wacky lady also thinks that International Woman's Day is a communist plot.

    AOC's response is perfect:

    We've bought 3 boxes so far, but may have to buy more.

    This isn't the first time that Girl Scout Cookies have come under fire from the conservatives. In 2012, an Indiana legislator named Bob Morris urged his fellow legislators to boycott the cookies because " the Girl Scouts is an organization that's been subverted in the name of liberal progressive politics and the destruction of traditional American family values."

    Until the Dems learn to stick together and stop attacking each other over nonsense Trump and his klan will continue to destroy our society to enhance their personal wealth and power. This is something Dems just seem to be unable to comprehend. Take the "high road" and loose, fight back on the same level as your opponent and at least have a chance of winning.

    I, unfortunately, cannot see any Democrat fighting a winning batte to dethrone Trump in 2020. They only want to fight over internal BS that ends up making them look weak.

    Ocasio-Cortez Blasts Capitalism as an ‘Irredeemable’ System

    We don't have capitalism:

    Capitalism is an economic system based on the private ownership of the means of production and their operation for profit. Characteristics central to capitalism include private property, capital accumulation, wage labor, voluntary exchange, a price system, and competitive markets.

    Nobody thinks a stock is valued by its earnings.

    The general thinking is the value of a stock is what it can be sold for.

    There is nothing wrong with capitalism. Our system is a plutocratic influence that rewards the accumulation of money as success. Our system rewards hoarding of money that deprives the economy of capital.

    An economy is the trading of goods and services. That is jobs and prosperity. Nothing wrong with capitalism and we should go back to it.

    AOC wrong again.

    "Other topics Ocasio-Cortez discussed included the Green New Deal and capitalism, which she said could not be redeemed because it puts profit “above everything else.”

    Profit is the margin that allows businesses to operate. The problem is not profit but the greed that opposes taxes that keep money in circulation.

    You're entirely right. Will Biden be a uniting force or will Bernie be crying in the background "This time is supposed to be my turn" i can't be patient because my expiration date is almost here. My turn Wahhhh.

    The Dems just love to lose! Now Nancy P says impeachment is off the table. Of course it would never pass with a Repub Senate but, WTF, Billy C got if for a BJ!

    Back on subject, however, AOC is the salvation of the Dems (and the country) if she learns how to open her mouth at the correct time and close it when necessary. I won’t still be around when she runs for president but she sure would get my vote over any of these other phoney liberals!!!

    AOC could cost votes. We need three and only three issues to run for 2020. Healthcare, Living Wages and Free Education. Those three issues alone are an uphill fight within the Democratic Party let alone the country. Focus and defend.

    PR, nice to see you back. Anyway you are right the Dem's are really asking Trump to stay; there is no direction at all with the Dem's ; Trump is an "planned" chaos, but the Dem's are like an kindergarten on an school trip. Trump loves all of this.

    Dems will most likely be happy winning the popularity contest again. It doesn't work that way. The electoral college is something the party leaders should become acquainted with. Maybe it's time to acknowledge that everything west of the Mississippi is important too. Not just California, Oregon and Washington. Perhaps a few southern states as well. Exceed expectations and win in a huge way.

    Right on. " Maybe it's time to acknowledge that everything west of the Mississippi is important too."

    No matter how it is interpreted the electoral college was designed to give equal representation to smaller states. Just as the Senatorial representation of 2 Votes per state. A state with 30 million people has the same vote as a state with 1 Million people. Simple comprehension and logic says to take nothing for granted. An appeal to the needs of people in all states can be a Democratic Landslide in 2020.

    From what I've seen and heard of Cortez, she's too far left to suit me. Like Sanders and all the rest of the far left fringe. I prefer centrists who are willing to work with republicans. Cortez has called out moderates, who sometimes negotiate with republicans, which makes her too far left.

    Cortez is an irrational ideologue spouting an array of nonessential sound bites.

    On the other hand Sanders has addressed the plague on the middle class with not radical ideas but ideas deserved of the working class that makes this country work.

    50 years of concessions by the Democratic party to pursue non human rights issues have turned this country into a mockery of the working class. One person has no right to hoard the money of thousands or millions of working class earnings.

    Wal-Mart offers opportunity to become venders. But when a vender invests their lives in a product Wal-Mart cuts the payment to the vender who has no choice but to produce for less money. Wal-Mart has cheated millions of people out of a right to a full living. Amazon contracts venders and when a vender produces a successful product Amazon creates a duplicate company and puts the vender out of by business. That is what 60 years of concessions by an elite liberal positions has traded away to the Republicans. AOC is right as far as stopping concessions to the Republicans but she has no battle plan. She should forget everything else and concentrate on healthcare, wages and education. Narrow the focus to what improves the working class and everybody will benefit. Then billionaires will become capitalist owning the means of production instead of mountains of useless money.
