Quote from: taxed on February 07, 2019, 11:59:19 AMThese young Marxists don't have an understanding about the country like the older Marxists do. There's a reason why Marxists have always had to run to the right and hide their agendas. It's why this new group are so far left, but their base is a small slice of radicals. Marxists can't show their true colors, but this new group over the past couple years didn't get that memo.
Quote from: The Boo Man... on February 07, 2019, 12:41:12 PM Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York bungled the release of the "Green New Deal." Her office was forced to take down a summary of the bill because it contained a series of gaffes. Those included anti-nuclear power language, a reference to "farting cows" and welfare for "unwilling" workers.Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez kicked off Thursday unveiling her highly-anticipated "Green New Deal" resolution to cheers from Democrats and environmentalists, but by the day's end, her staff was forced to take a gaffe-riddled summary of the bill offline.Ocasio-Cortez gave NPR the scoop. Her office provided NPR the Green New Deal resolution and its accompanying FAQ document that laid out its goals, namely to "[m]ove America to 100% clean and renewable energy" within 10 years.What immediately became clear, however, was that the legislative language didn't match with Ocasio-Cortez's FAQ, especially when it came to nuclear power, welfare programs and "farting cows.""Frankly, it does a disservice to the debate," Jeremy Harrell, policy director at ClearPath, a conservative group that promotes low-emissions energy, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. (RELATED: What's Really Motivating The 'Green New Deal'? Ocasio-Cortez Straight Up Told Us)The Green New Deal resolution, which has more than sixty cosponsors in the House, does not have language ruling out nuclear or banning fossil fuels, but its accompanying FAQ actually did.The FAQ document Ocasio-Cortez's staff gave to NPR reads: A Green New Deal is a massive investment in renewable energy production and would not include creating new nuclear plants. It's unclear if we will be able to decommission every nuclear plant within 10 years, but the plan is to transition off of nuclear and all fossil fuels as soon as possible.In fact, NPR reported the "ultimate goal is to stop using fossil fuels entirely, Ocasio-Cortez's office told NPR, as well as to transition away from nuclear energy.""Realistically, you can't decommission a nuclear plant in ten years," Harrell told TheDCNF."She's making false promises that aren't even in the realm of the doable," Harrell said. "She's using this to push a liberal agenda."Harrell wasn't the only one to notice the discrepancy. Mike Shellenberger, founder of the pro-nuclear group Environmental Progress, called for Ocasio-Cortez do clear up the confusion. Mike Shellenberger ✔ @ShellenbergerMD I have been questioned on my reporting that Green New Deal is anti-nuclear & I stand by it The office of @AOC put out a *written* document stating that "plan is to transition off of nuclear" If @AOC isn't calling for death of nuclear then she needs to issue *written statement* Mike Shellenberger ✔ @ShellenbergerMD On NPR @AOC said Green New Deal is "not an outright ban on any source of energy" but the FAQ her office sent out says GND "would not include new nuclear" & "plan is to transition off of nuclear..." Which is it, @AOC? Are you a courageous & independent progressive leader or not? 1,011 1:35 PM - Feb 7, 2019 Twitter Ads info and privacy361 people are talking about thisMORE
Quote from: Solar on February 07, 2019, 12:20:17 PMExactly!!!These kids don't care about laws of physics or the Constitution, let alone our laws, they want everything yesterday. The Dims have been dishing out their Marxism in small amounts over the decades, so as not to gag the country. Yet, here we have a bunch of petulant kids making demands of their elders, that just isn't sitting right.How did we use to punish kids that back talked their elders? It was the left after all, Dims that outlawed spanking in schools.These kids are not done, they think they are smarter than anyone, even when proven wrong, they still "FEEL" they are in the right.The party is imploding and there's not a damn thing they an do to stop it!

Quote from: The Boo Man... on February 07, 2019, 01:43:14 PMLOLWhat about Europe? Asia? First we have to convince these countries to build train stations near the sea. Then we have to convince Americans that spending a week of their vacation time to get to their destination is great.
