It's not going to happen of course, and I expect none other than Nancy Pelosi to squash it quickly.

2 minutes of that douche-nozzle is just exactly 2 minutes too many.

Ocasio-Cortez explans why the Green New Deal is not a "massive"* government takeover:
"‘I think one way that the right does try to mischaracterize what we’re doing as though it’s like some kind of massive government takeover,’ Ocasio-Cortez said on MSNBC’s ‘MTP Daily.’ ‘Obviously it’s not that because what we’re trying to do is release the investments from the federal government to mobilize those resources across the country’.”

Wiki reports she graduated cum laude from Boston University majoring in international relations and economics.


* Amusingly, although it was reportedly quickly removed, the term "massive" appeared 13 times in her five and a half page Green New Deal FAQ "overview."

Yeah, I am totally sure we can lay enough high-speed rail that we will have no need for air travel in 10 years. Sure. Sounds doable. abso-fuggin-lutely. I do have some questions on how we are laying high-speed rail connections to Hawaii though. Or to Europe.

Also, a plan that wants to ELIMINATE rather than embrace nuclear energy is not a serious plan for clean energy.

Her "Green New Deal" is nuts. I have avoided the overblown "Ocasio-Cortez is t3h stoopud" bandwagon, but now that I have seen her in action I have to admit that sometimes bandwagons form for a reason.

Like Sarah Palin, every time she opens her mouth she violates Mark Twain's Admonition.

So, are the odds of AOC being reelected to Congress in 2020 going up or down?

Probably about the same. She is now the incumbent. That puts her odds of re-election into the upper 90th percentile no matter what she does or says.

Ordinarily I would agree, but in this case she beat a long standing and high ranking incumbent, so perhaps the general rule will not apply here.

General rules are useful when all other things are equal (or there is no additional information). But when special circumstances come into play, then a general rule may no longer apply.

Electric maybe? If so, where do the copper windings come from? What powers the mining and purification process?

Seriously, the "greenest" way to power trains is electricity.

This has the virtue of being able to keep the same equipment as more efficient methods of power generation become available.

And of course the "greenest" is nuclear.

All electric is the way to go, with all necessary manufacturing equipment being electrical.

Not feasible right away of course, but if mechanical civilization is to continue indefinitely that has to be the (very) long term plan.

Because fossil fuels really won't last forever, even if it's not the immediate crisis it used to be.
