How Dumb Is Ocasio-Cortez?

“You know, I think it’s really important that we understand that we need to invest in our economy, but we need to invest in our people, and to give away $3 billion to a company that has a history of worker exploitation that’s paying below what the cost of New York City is not acceptable for us.”

Of course, New York wasn’t going to “give” Amazon anything, let alone $3 billion. The $3 billion is an estimate of foregone tax revenues. In other words, money that Amazon won’t pay New York, not money that New York will pay Amazon. This is childishly simple, but apparently too much for AOC:

My guess is that she is a beneficiary of ‘affirmative action’. That’s the only explanation why somebody this ignorant can claim a degree in ECONOMICS!

And Just Like That, The Smollett Story Begins to Unravel

Never underestimate the power of human stupidity. Smollett, two others in “active interviews” with Chicago police; Evidence of police “slow play” emerging. That story about …

A source familiar with the records provided by the Empire star states that Smollett downloaded his phone activity into a spreadsheet and then deleted certain phone calls before handing over the records. “He did the [detectives’] job for them because then they only had to focus on the numbers he deleted.”

Pelosi threat: Democrats could declare national emergency to enact gun control

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said President Trump’s plan to use a national emergency declaration to unilaterally provide federal funding for a border wall would set a precedent Republicans may come to regret.

Democrats, she said, could use it later to enact their own priorities, such as increasing gun control

And that would cause the national emergency as my guns would be ‘weapons free’ and ‘shoot on sight.’

Democrats are enemies of the Constitution and the U. S. of A.

Wreck of WWII aircraft carrier USS Hornet discovered in South Pacific

The research vessel Petrel, owned by the estate of late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, discovered the Hornet three miles under the ocean surface off the Solomon Islands.

Richard Nowatzki, now 95, was an 18-year-old gunner on the Hornet, and watched via remote camera link as the remote sub discovered his old station at a gun turret.

‘If you go down to my locker, there’s 40 bucks in it, you can have it!’ he told CBS News.

Cory Booker: Planet Cannot Sustain People Eating Meat – Moonbattery

Booker told the vegan magazine VegNews earlier this month that he became vegan after coming to the realization that eating eggs “didn’t align with my spirit.”

So it’s a religious thing with ‘Fartacus‘…

While claiming he does not want to lecture Americans on their diets, Booker says Americans need to be nudged into fake cheese because the planet cannot sustain the “environmental impact” of the food industry.

Nudged? Now he wants to impose his religion on others.

Old Movies

What I found remarkable about the movie is something I notice whenever I watch old movies and that is the maturity. A movie about the cat and mouse between a male and female today will have at least half an hour of rutting and humping, along with some explosions and lots of vulgar language. The modern presentation of male-female relations is so crude, that porn makers of the past would have been offended. In the old days, the film maker and audience expected a more sophisticated portrayal of sexual relations.

Let that sink in: “The modern presentation of male-female relations is so crude, that porn makers of the past would have been offended.”

The last new movie I saw in the theater was The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. That was in 2005. Before that it was The Fellowship of the Ring in 2001. As you can see, there’s very little worthwhile to see. Most of them are remakes of old classics (which almost always are worse than the original) or another childish installment of some comic book superhero movies. I outgrew comic book superheros around age eleven, along with comic books. And ALL of the movies these days preach liberal political correctness.

So, when I do watch a movie, it’s probably going to be one from the 1960s or before. There’s a lot of them I haven’t seen ever.
