    Ocasio-Cortez stopped clock moment.

    Ocasio-Cortez Attacks Public Funding for Tesla’s Green Technology

    Democratic Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York slammed the electric car company Tesla Monday night for failing to give American taxpayers a return on their “investment.”

    “When we as a public choose to invest in new technologies, we deserve a return on that investment,” Ocasio-Cortez said while talking about the broader Progressive agenda to fund renewable and green technology research with taxpayer money.

    “For far too long, we gave money to Tesla, we gave money to a ton of people and we got no return on our investment that the public made in creating technologies, and it’s about time we get our due because it’s the public that funded and financed a lot of innovative technologies,” Ocasio Cortez continued.


    Half-right, anyway. Public funding is almost a guarantee of failure. Solyndra, anybody? Fisker? Aptera? Anybody, anybody?

    the fact that this broad is wearing multi-$k costumes while preaching to proletariat is a dead give away of lying commie hypocrite, the worst of commies. Russians say about them: "only grave will fix 'em"

    The only thing I'm sticking in that nacho is an RGD without a pin.

    It also occurred to me that AOC immediately went full-Communist with her multi-$K outfits. Comrades can shop at Walmart.

    While I'm against .gov corporate welfare, Tesla has actually made some pretty significant advances in battery technology, and unlike most recipients of government welfare actually has a product out there on the market. Overpriced and not completely practical yet, yes, but they're actually making something.

    Productivity is the enemy of communism, though, so not surprised she picked them to go after instead of one of any number of other lesser known companies.

    I’ve met 7 year olds with a whole bunch more knowledge and common sense than that hot mess. Mind you, they’re someone’s kids at the range so they were probably raised proper by one of you nes’ers.

    Of course. You don't still believe that an American college education means anything about your having learned anything, do you?

    Great cans. I’ll jusr turn off the volume....
    He went to Depauw. I dated a girl who went to DePauw, and she said it was “For dumb, rich white kids.”

    They called it “Camp DePauw.” Her father was a wealthy Doctor. She was hot, but dumb, so I believed her.

    Whether Ocasio-Cortez can spell “potato” remains to be seen.

    I dunno. Not saying that Dr. Drew is making it up, but I recall watching Loveline on MTV years ago. He'd nail EVERY SINGLE MJ user. The guy would be blabbing away, sounding - to me - fairly normal. Normal-ish question. Relational or something.

    "How much weed do you smoke a day?"

    "Whathuh?"

    "How much? X amount?"

    "Yeah. Maybe a little more."

    He could HEAR it in their voice patterns. Some stoners it's pretty obvious. He'd nail the ones that hid it well. So I won't put this little-girl thing past him.

    On the one hand, one of the basic mysteries about Loveline
    was whether the casual listener could draw broad conclusions
    about human biology from the calls,
    because the callers were at best self-selected,
    and at worst cherry-picked off of the call queue.

    If all you get are calls from substance-abusing victims of abuse,
    you'll probably get pretty good at treating that population.

    On the other hand, quantity has a quality all its own:

    ^This.

    I guess I view college today thru the lens of engineering school in the 70’s, where they tried to flunk out half of the freshman class. Believe me, they were not handing out any easy 4.0s back in the day

    Bonus: listening to Loveline really drove home "never trust an addict about anything" for me
    in a way that nothing else ever could.

    And that could be a life saving lesson.

    I think that is a big pass. I just had lunch :)

    My point is, let’s not underestimate her intelligence, AND the power that comes from her populism

    For example, she campaigns for uncle joe bidden, and delivers the hispanic vote in a number of critical states....

    Everything in CBF's affect made me deeply suspicious of her sanity.
    IIRC post-testimony events redoubled my fears.

    Are these actual photos of her, or are they photoshopped to make her look crazy?

    Both degrees I earned were forced curve grading. Imagine the horror if today's snowflakes were subjected to that.

    Also a tell-tale sign of being of Hispanic heritage. Not mutually exclusive, but one does not lead to the other.

    Uh, the record's got a scratch in it.


    Seeing the upperclasswoman-clogged sidewalks of Allston-Brighton
    while moving our oldest nephew (BU '12) into his freshman dorm,
    I had no idea that some day in retrospect the operative comment would be:
    Choose the form of the Destructor.​
