    Yes

    But

    The russians have figured out how to go back in time. So when you use electricity up, just go back in time and reuse the SAME energy a second time, and a third, and a fourth....and you will SAVE the planet!

    Technology is indistinguishable from magic for most people.

    So this is really all we have to do. Simple, innit?

    Do not blame genes! These are survivors of our schools in which non swimmers get ribbons from swimming competitions and teachers hang them on these door knobs.

    It reminds me of a goldfish. Goldfish supposedly forget everything they know 3 seconds later, so it seems appropriate.

    These are the same f***heads who drive electric cars which they then recharge the lithium batteries with electricity generated from fossil fuel-fired power plants and then think they're doing so much more to save the environment. The stupidity and inability to grasp 2nd or 3rd order consequences is astounding.

    For the record, I'm not against electric vehicles, and I think they should be developed and produced based upon market demand. Just be aware that they really aren't that great for the environment and driving one doesn't make you a better person.

    D'oh! Why didn't we think of this before?? Well that settles it then... I'm going to go now and invent myself a ZPM. One of those can power the earth's entire grid.

    The sad thing is, there actually is technology that would help achieve much/most of their alleged environmental goals, but they refuse to use these technologies and instead insist on using what causes even more damage.

    LOL, but the writers were having too damned much fun.
    Script totally should have used the word "pallor".

    This is long but a must watch. AOC is effectively an actress who was chosen from 10k people by a group called the Justice Democrats. Their strategy is to primary sitting Democrats and replace them with their puppets to gain control of Congress and eventually the presidency. Rashida Tlaib The big mouth from California another one of their placements in Congress. Assuming this is all true This is remarkably disturbing

    "Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., exposed her economic ignorance again this week when she argued that bankers should be liable for borrowers' mistakes.

    During Capitol Hill testimony from Wells Fargo CEO Timothy Sloan, Ocasio-Cortez contended that if in the event of an oil spill on the Dakota Access Pipeline, which Wells Fargo helped finance, the bank should be held responsible.

    "If there was a leak from the Dakota Access Pipeline," Ocasio-Cortez asked rhetorically, "why shouldn’t Wells Fargo pay for the cleanup of it, since it paid for the construction of the pipeline itself?”

    "Because we don't operate the project," Sloan responded. "We provide financing to the company that’s operating the pipeline.”

    This is getting embarrassing."

    Ocasio-Cortez again proves she's clueless on economics

    Does she not understand economics, or in this case does she simply prefer that there be an assumption in place that banks should not lend to a business due to the concern that they will be held responsible for the consequences. Need a loan to upgrade machinery on your tabacco farm? Sorry we can't afford the cancer lawsuits. Loan to invest in expanding your bottling plant? Sorry MADD will come after us. Need a line of credit on your house where you operate an FFL? Hard no, can't pay out for the next shooting.

    Sure I could be giving her more credit than she is due, but there is a second line of equally bad logic she could be working down.

    The leftist goal here is to enforce their values onto lending. The vast majority of businesses need a loan. Denying them financing denies them the ability to operate. Shut down the loans, shut down the undesired businesses. Also in tort law.

    I think she definitely understands. She really believes the banks should be held responsible for the borrowers mistakes; that plays perfectly into her agenda. Because, you know, banks are, like, evil and stuff.

    Today she wants us to walk into a Mosque to offer kind gestures....which might be interpreted as a provocative act by those worshipers feeling defensive.

    "Friends, Morning (Friday) is Jummah, the weekly day of worship for our community of Muslim friends and loved ones. Be there for them. Check in. Perhaps extend a kind gesture at your local mosque. There is so much fear and hate. We must negate it with active, courageous love."

    Follow up to my last post -
    This is a video of AOC from the Justice Democrats Website where she is supposed to be having a natural discussion as to how she got there. It's entirely scripted BS as the people she's speaking to are the leaders of the Justice Democrats and polictical operatives. THEY are the ones who picked her, packaged her, ran her campaign, put her in office and now drive her agenda. The guy in the green shirt is Saikat Chakrabarti who is now her chief of staff - he's also now under investigation for moving $1m off the books into a slush fund.

    AOC appears to not have a grasp of any of these issues because she REALLY DOESN"T KNOW ANYTHING! She's completely scripted
