Nice try. You are reading it wrong. Not only 'have never seen one'. Ok, fine. But this:  'had no idea what one is'. “I am told this is a garbage disposal." :bag: Her own words. Big difference. She may as well said 'I have no idea what a combine (harvester) is'. My guess is she probably doesn't know what that is as well. I mean this is grade school stuff.

I think you vastly overestimate what millenials and gen 2020'ers know about old stuff.  More importantly, it has nothing to do with her "intelligence".

I gotta say, I just moved to a place with my 1st garbage disposal and I kind of get where she's coming from. Every food I've looked up is not supposed to go down it. :confused: :lol: 
Can you not imagine that she's  having a little fun with it? It's like Beto and the missing turtle. Political polarization is sucking all the fun out of things.

It seems legit story.   I would hope for her sake she is trolling, but this is pretty consistent with her level of brightness. 

https://nypost.com/2019/05/07/ocasio-cortez-blown-away-by-first-experience-with-a-garbage-disposal/

how is this, in any way, indicative of how "bright" she is?  are you referring to the fact that whoever told her it was a "garbage disposal" was trolling her (or got it wrong) and she believed it?  Or that garburators are so ubiquitous that not knowing of their existence is somehow probative of her intelligence?

I honestly don't get it.

I honestly don't know how a 29 year old that grew up in a wealthy area of New York doesn't know what a garbage disposal is.

The left had a field day mocking Palin and now get offended when one of theirs gets made fun of?  AOC consistently says stuff far dumber than anything Palin said.   Shoot, Quayle got mocked endlessly by the left for being stupid because he did not know potato was misspelled on a que card.

Yeah, well, that I agree with.  I don't want to get banned but you are correct in their knowledge levels. "Old stuff." LOL. I remember as a kid asking why we didn't have one in the kitchen.  You realize they have been a round since the late 20s. Which means they were "old stuff" for us in the 70s as well but we knew what they were.

my point was that they are no longer used in new housing projects and haven't been for some time (at least where I live).

in any event, the whole thing is stupid.

She grew up in a nice house, not a housing project. And my guess is she has relatives she visited it that likely had one too. Like someone said...the left had a field day mocking Palin for some of her comments. When you say something stupid people will laugh at it and have fun with it.

IIRC MC Gas Money/RokNRoll or whatever he goes by hadn't lived in a place with a garbage disposal until his most recent apartment in Texas and clogged it up with an apple core, not thinking the seeds in it were any problem.

Unlikely this was her first exposure to a garbage disposal but it is possible. 

Yes, she may be having a little fun with this, look at who has gotten triggered by this here and on social media:

Also, if she really does not know what a garbage disposal is then have the common sense to not bring it up.

Garbage disposals are extremely common in the US, even more common than dishwashers.  NY City on the other hand banned garbage disposals for some time and are kind of rare there.  Still funny.

She didn't grow up in NY City. She grew up in a nice house in Westchester County..and yes it is quite funny.

I'd prefer the people promoting green new deals to be familiar with the different ways garbage is disposed of.  It's because of environmental reasons some places no longer use them or have banned them in the past.

Palin was mocked for being a vice-presidential candidate who didn't know anything about geo-political matters.  You think that is the same thing?  okay.

that place she grew up in was really nice...how many square feet do you think it was?  800?  1000 even?

this narrative that she led some upper middle class privileged life is total bs.

I had a friend of a friend who was a white nationalist. He disturbed me because he was a nice smart guy. That was 20 years ago, no idea what became of him. 

There is a guy in my Continuing Care (alcoholics anonymous) Thursday night meeting whom I’m pretty sure is one, based on some offhand comments- but politics aren’t discussed in there, and I haven’t asked him. 

Ever meet a black nationalist?  Prepare to have your mind blown.

In all seriousness though, the "zoo animal" part of this is over the line IMO.  I understand having a good-natured laugh over AOC's discovery of the garbage disposal, but that's not good-natured.

Seriously? Tell us that she didn't live in a nice middle class home and grew up in a nice place and not the Bronx like she claims. So what type of life did she live?

Her house was in Yorktown Heights, a place where the median family income is $137k.  Her father was an architect.

I don't "cowardly" ban anyone.

Am I ashamed of this place? No.

Could be. I live in Calgary Canada and garburators (as we call them) don’t get installed anymore.  Having said that, I had one growing up.  Very convenient.

I have. More than a few actually. I used to play chess in Los Angeles right next to a Nation of Islam temple, so these dudes would often come over and play, wearing their bow ties and suits. Very polite, soft spoken. A few of them were quite good players. Never discussed politics with them; not interested in being called a white devil. Just stuck to chess.

She is in the house of representatives and can't even name the three branches of government.  She does not understand simple concepts about revenues and spending.  She does not understand the difference between lending money and ownership.  She does not comprehend the difference between local government responsibility and federal government.  Her 'plans' have no plan.  She really lives in some kind of fantasy world.

If someone said the same thing about a trump they’d be warmed too.  And if they called the owner a boot locker multiple people would be screaming for the person to be permabanned..
