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.

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.

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.

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..

Sure, why not?  The whole thought process of first being terrified and then wondering if it is environmentally friendly shows her thought process and how little she thinks before speaking.  Her depth of thought is very limited to far-left rhetoric.

As opposed to Donald Trump who doesn't seem to recognize that there are three equal branches of government, as evidenced by his administrations defiance of requests from Congress that are now resulting in subpoenas.

I’ve wondered if garbage disposals are environmentally friendly.

Yes.  It is a more environmentally friendly way of disposing of food versus landfills.

I agree but this is the Cortez thread..Trump has 10 of his own threads. Lets keep this thread about Cortez not Trump.

I am confused who said that.   It is certainly not well off, but it is a nice middle class income.   Yorkshire Heights is probably much more affordable than Manhatten.

It doesn’t surprise me at all that she’s never seen a garbage disposal. There’s large parts of New York where it’s not allowed- I think if there’s septic tanks.

I won’t comment on the other part of this post, but as to this part- she’s not a stupid woman. At all. You guys seriously understestimate her when you do this. 

AOC graduated from Boston University cum laude. That’s not an easy school to get into; it’s one of the toughest in the entire country particularly in her field (international relations). Her degree is quite impressive. 

She’s naive for sure, impetuous, tweets before she thinks (like Trump), but she ain’t dumb. I disagree with her a lot. But I respect her. 

I also think she’s a very good person. When I read her tweets trying to inform people about getting shots, other public health advice, how much she gives of her time to help the less fortunate- her heart is in the right place.

Wouldn’t you think someone who personally lost over a BILLION dollars (“more than nearly any other taxpayer in America”) be vulnerable to shady activity to get out of that hole?

If they became the most powerful public servant in America, wouldn’t you want to see their taxes?

Yeah but that’s because there were strong rumors that W got in  as a family thing. And I don’t think he graduated cum laude. 

Still I always thought his intelligence was underrated too. As was Reagan. And Donald Trump for that matter. You don’t get to be President unless you’re pretty bright. 

But Congresspeople are different. I’ve mentioned before in this thread that there are some really dumb members of Congress: Michelle Bachmann (no longer thankfully), Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters (quite embarrassing that she chairs a committee now), Steve King, etc. But I don’t believe this woman is one of them.

I'm not as impressed with her education as Tim is.

Here naivete and lack of understanding on how the world works is very dangerous given her power.

I’m buying more and more into the theory that she was a paid actress theory every time you see her go off script.
