Shouldn't she be sued for plagiarism of Al Gore's 1988 and 1992 campaign speeches, Doom was always 12 years down the road.

Exclusive: A new Axios/SurveyMonkey poll finds that 74% of Democrats (and people who lean Dem) would consider voting for Ocasio-Cortez if she were old enough to run for president.
That is no surprise. The same group would vote for Venezuela's Chavez if he were alive and for Castro as well if they ran for US president.

Ocasio-Cortez calls climate change ‘our World War II,’ warns the world will end in 12 years.




Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., spoke out on Monday about the urgency to take on climate change, comparing it to World War II.

Speaking at an event commemorating Martin Luther King Day, Ocasio-Cortez expressed how the issue of climate change is a “generational” issue that younger people are more focused on.

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ SLAMS AARON SORKIN FOR TELLING NEW DEMS TO 'STOP ACTING LIKE YOUNG PEOPLE'

“Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?'" Ocasio-Cortez said.

The Democratic Socialist said the fight against climate change is war and that it’s “our World War II.”

I love her so much.
ROFL. If she keeps this up, she'll be a legitimate contender against Trump for the 2019 Entertainer of the Year award.

Let's see, AOC is unique, enthusiastic, idealistic, beautiful and engaged in life woman of modest means concerned with equality and a better world.... Rush Limbaugh (one of many I could have chosen) is a hateful, bloated, drug-addled misanthrope who has become wealthy by derogatory neo-fascist propaganda on Hate Radio.

So hard to choose my favorite?

The fight is already lost on that front. No matter how much we in the West change, it is the African and Asian nations that are the primary polluters. We must, rather, prepare ourselves for the onslaught that is coming. The equator will grow uninhabitable and nonarable, and there will be a tidal wave of millions towards the North.

First of of all, the GOP is the movers and shakers and the sheep, mostly sheep, who don't understand much of anything and can easily be told to believe something, they think AOC is stupid, because they have been told to think that.
Then there's the puppet masters, AOC terrifies them, because she says what a lot of people are afraid to say, that a top tax bracket should be over 70%.
This is what the US had, during it's period of greatest growth, it's what Japan had during it's period of greatest growth, it promotes a fairer distribution of wealth, a robust middle class and economic growth.
In Russia, they started out with a 30% top tax bracket, they have a huge disparity in wealth distribution, a middle class that is suffering, low growth and they are trending away from democracy towards autocracy. (The GOP goals for America, but they don't tell the sheep that)
AOC will tell the sheep that, and some of them might listen and wise up.
And that's what scares the shepherds and leads them have the sheep attack AOC at every opportunity, because if she catches on, the GOP is gone.

On climate change she is correct, we have to act and we have to act soon, or the world as we know it is over.
That's another the Masters don't want the sheep to hear.
