AOC GOAL: Turn America into a Marxist Collective
Apparently Bill Gates has sat on his ass and contributed nothing to Microsoft’s success over the past 44 years… at least, according to Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
At an event commemorating Martin Luther King on Monday, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez told the audience that wealthy people “sat on a couch” while “undocumented workers” earning “slave wages” created all the wealth and value.
“No one ever makes a billion dollars,” she said. “You take a billion dollars.” And the crowd went wild.
She went on, chuckling that “there is a case” that “billionaires are inherently, morally corrupt,” and that “if Jeff Bezos wants to be a good person he’d turn Amazon into a worker cooperative. . .”
And this is the solution that AOC is posing; she wants to completely upend the system and turn the country into a Marxist collective.
It’s worth noting that AOC is not stupid. Conservative media likes to beat up on her and make her out to be an idiot. She’s not.
AOC is clearly an intelligent person, and some of what she says is true. One of her central themes, in fact, is that a lot of people are getting screwed by the system. And it’s hard to argue with that.
The primary danger, as is the case with most politicians, is that AOC doesn’t seem to have a grasp of the problem.
Why are people getting screwed by the system? Why is healthcare so expensive? Why is education so expensive? Why haven’t many workers’ wages kept up with inflation?
She makes no attempt to understand the root cause of these issues, and that’s extremely counterproductive. No one can solve a problem which they haven’t properly defined.
Instead, AOC simply blames wealthy people for all the ills of the world-- the wealth gap, environmental issues, social injustice, etc.
And her solution for everything is to confiscate their property.
Not to be outdone, two separate sets of video recordings have recently been leaked by Project Veritas in which Bernie Sanders campaign staffers call for violent revolution and for wealthy people to be incarcerated in forced labor camps.

One of them even said, “Guillotine the rich!”
P.S. I love that famous scene in the 1976 movie Network when Peter Finch, playing a TV news anchor, goes on that amazing rant. You know the one. “Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad! You’ve got to say, ‘I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not gonna take this anymore!’” This is how I feel about Pelosi and her gang of impeachment pirates and the Left wing media which has become the Pravda of the DNC.
These Leftists socialists in the so-called Democratic Party are unfit to hold office; they don’t serve America or its voters but seek to undermine our nation.

President Donald Trump’s job approval rating is up six percentage points since the House Democrats launched their impeachment inquiry, according to a Gallup poll released early Wednesday.
I meant to include this in our post last week regarding how to find water…
For decades the EPA has overseen city water that’s used in 85% of our homes; most don’t know it but they’ve hidden problems in our national water grid [we’ve only heard about the lead in the Flint, MI water system when in reality, it’s national problem]. It’s rare that the EPA press local officials into fixing water systems…
Everyone knows the importance of water in a survival situation. You can only survive without it for three days, but you’ll feel severely dehydrated after just one.
This is why water needs to be one of your biggest priorities. You should stock up on two gallons per day per person, but you should also know how to find water.
Why? Because disasters happen when you least expect, and you could be away from home when the next one strikes. Or worse, your home--along with your water supply--could be destroyed...
Do You Want a Bigger Nanny State; to Give Up More Freedom?
The I.R.S. data on the level and trend in self-employment contradicts information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The B.L.S. has shown a slight decline in the share of workers who are self-employed and estimates it at now around 10 percent. The discrepancy arises because both the bureau’s Current Population Survey and the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey identify people as self-employed based only on the job in which they spend the most time working

Daily we have a wealth transfer from the productive class to the obstructionist class delivering our Republic into the hands of bureaucrats & regulators.
Leftists such as Pelosi et al have a socialist agenda supported/furthered by co-conspirators which include the media, judges, bureaucrats, and even unions…smugly embracing the ruinous chains of meritocracy & socialism.
Well done-AOC is a anti-American snake-we need to rid Congress & the nation of these Communists!
The ‘blame America first’ leftists are a monument to dysfunction.
