    Boston University should really be embarrassed that someone was able to graduate Cum Lade from there with a degree in economics and still be this clueless about economics, even going so far as saying "I don't understand how the economy works."

    Every time she goes off the talking points of her keepers she reveals how retarded she is

    I need to figure out how to run her voice audio through some kind of a filter that changes it to something listenable. I just can't listen to that voice one more second.

    Does call to question how she got that , doesn't it?
    BU should hang their heads in shame with that out front showing what that degree is worth.

    Yes, and yes.

    Although, I did minor in economics and while they didn't exactly teach me full blown communist propaganda, I can't say I really learned much about real economics in those classes. Most of what I know about economics, I had to learn outside of the classroom.

    If you identify as a Non-Hispanic White,
    you can help close the gap by either burning less tires,
    or by giving some unburnt tires to Polluters of Color who live upwind.

    Is that on a per capita basis or overall? If it's overall, it shouldn't surprise anyone since "non-Hispanic whites" make up a larger portion of the population than Hispanics or blacks. It also fits because a larger percentage of Hispanics and blacks live in inner cities, where the pollution tends to be concentrated.

    That’s interesting and well researched. It’s also very believable as it’s the sort of thing I suspected but to an even larger scale.

    What? No, I meant what I said. Go back and read it again, then research the experimental thorium reactor they had running in the 1960s. (But, I know you won't.)

    Apologies. Attempt at linking (what I thought was) a well known quote of AOC’s. Apologies if it missed the mark. I fully believe you meant what you said and wasn’t attempting to challenge it in any way

    We could hire Cheech to compose a song "Scandanavian-Americans";
    as a sequel to his hit tune "Mexican-Americans".

    At it again. Seems she had a controlling interest in a PAC while running for office.

    Ocasio-Cortez de-listed from board of Justice Democrats after controversy

    "Mexican-Americans...Take Spanish in school and get a B..."

    "Sung" in the worst singing voice in history and with a heavy Cheech accent.

    I'll never forget that one. Makes me laugh every time I think of it.

    Universities teach Keynesian economics. Can't expect them to churn out economically literate people.

    This reminds me, I REALLY need to sing "Mexican Americans dont like to get up early, in the morning, but they have to, so they do it really slow" in the same accent to my Mexican shop supervisor the next time I talk to him when hes late on his way into the office.

    The group didn’t back her in that. They told her that would be her platform.
