    Why is that not surprising?

    It depends how old you are. If you’re 30 she may be a 4. If you’re 60 she’s definitely a 6 or better. The older you are the better they look

    Point taken. I just think you have to draw the line with getting involved with communists.

    Dammit,you are probably right..Even though she is my type,brunette,not pale skin with a nice chest.I think she is a 6.0 ,her natural chest brings that score to a 6.6.

    If she was Conservative,NES would be a big slobberfest over her.

    I don’t think she’s even a communist, I think she’s just stupid.

    Ironic that all of that money came from crony progressive communists just like her looking to pay off people for their support. She is a total Commie, could be KGB.

    What they hate even more is NOT being sexualized and told they should be an object used for pleasure.

    Occasional Cortez is very obviously trying to get some attention shown her way - you can tell by the big deal she makes out of wearing designer clothes and all the rest of it.

    As well as being dumber than a brick - she's an attention whore.

    You guys are hopeless if personal attacks are the response to someone asking for additional, clarifying information.

    May have been stated earlier in this thread, but she got elected by something like 16K votes out of a district of 200K people. Quite an ego given she has absolutely no mandate. It's scary how apathetic we are about electing qualified people, and at the same time qualified people have no interest in being in politics. Quite a death spiral.

    Especially in urban areas, it seems. A lot of nutty slips through - especially into the house.

    It would be more accurate to say she's MISquoting the article. It states there are $26T in errors on BOTH sides of the ledger more or less netting zero.

    She interpreted that to mean they simply lost track of $26T.

    She's cute and feisty and I'll bet she'd be a firecracker in bed, but she is profoundly stupid. Her political career will, however, be vastly amusing.

    Incidentally, somebody must be expending an ENORMOUS effort at suppressing photoshopped nudes of Hurricane Sandy. I haven't looked all THAT hard but usually a casual search of ANYBODY's name followed by the word nudes will net a few works of art, of varying degree of artistic talent.

    Therefore, a team is hard at work scrubbing the net continuously.

    While there wasn't that rampant "we gotta fail peeps" mentality in the 80's, it seems like my time in college was far harder than my kids' time. I didn't get extra help. I didn't go to the study group. I figured it out. My kids come to me often for help in college. And they are CLUELESS at times.

    I know there was a time when I didn't fully understand things like TVM or anything. It's so ingrained in me now that I can't conceive of a time when I had to learn it. But learn it I did. In college. In a semester. Every class that used TVM after that was NBD. My girls??? Gosh. Some of the math concepts I've had to show them, that they just don't quite get. Not sure if it's teachers or what. Expectations?

    My oldest graduated last May. Almost made cum laude. Every other kid was honors of some sort, it seemed. Maybe 1 out of 3. Which makes no sense. Should be less than 10%. I missed CL by .01. POINT ZERO-ONE! Honors recipients in my graduating class was less than 5%. No question I knew more walking out than my daughter did. Again, not sure if it was expectations or quality of teachers or less catering to the "client." (If you are paying $50K/yr at a private college, they BETTER pass your ass. The colleges themselves have created this quality-of-education problem by charging more and more for crap that ISN'T education. I don't want the best intramural softball program or the Belgian waffle station in the caf. I want an education. I digress. LOL. And no, I didn't pay $50K. State school. Live at home. Please!)

    Yep. I learned that. . . . in college. IIRC, first of hyphenated is the real last name. Second is wife's maiden name. So she's not Mzzz Cortez. . . .ever. If you use one, use the first one. (My mgmt prof was from PR. Martin Diaz. First day, someone says, "Prof Diaz." He spent 5 minutes schooling us on Spanish names. It stuck with me.)
