    As a nation, we have already established the legal right for the government to take money from individuals in order to serve the common good.

    I suppose we could argue whether that is a moral right — but that is an argument that goes nowhere at this point.

    The bottom line is that we have a national graduated income tax. And, check me if I’m wrong, but I do not believe that there are any of us truly willing to give up every single thing we receive from the government.

    So, as best I can see, we have two choices: (1) eliminate the graduated income tax and replace it with (a) a flat tax or (b) some other tax — a national sales tax has been suggested, or (2) decide what percentages we want the tiers to be (ranging from 0% to 92% over the past 75 years).

    If (1). The burden of change is on those who want change. Please explain why we would eliminate it. Because it’s not fair?

    If (2), then as Winston Churchill is reported to have said to the woman who agreed to sleep with him for a million pounds but not for one pound: “we’ve already established what you are; we are just haggling over the price.”

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) sought to explain a recent document from her office that linked “farting cows” to climate change, saying that serious climate policy needs to address agriculture.

    A set of frequently asked questions released by her office this month as part of the rollout of her "Green New Deal" proposal to fight climate change mentioned cow flatulence as a problem, but her staff later denounced the document.

    Ocasio-Cortez didn’t directly defend the statement in an interview that aired late Thursday on Showtime’s "Desus & Mero," but said that climate policy might need to look into reducing greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture.

    “In the deal, what we talk about is ... that we need to take a look at factory farming, period. It’s wild,” she told hosts Desus Nice and The Kid Mero on the premier of their show’s first season on the network.

    “And so, it’s not to say you get rid of agriculture. It’s not to say we’re going to force everybody to go vegan or anything crazy like that. But it’s to say, listen, we’ve got to address factory farming. Maybe we shouldn’t be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Like, let’s keep it real,” she continued.

    “We have to take a look at everything.”

    The resolution she introduced with Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) didn’t propose any measures to control greenhouse gas emissions from livestock, nor did the frequently asked questions document.

    “We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero, emissions in 10 years because we aren't sure that we'll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast,” the document said.

    Despite Ocasio-Cortez's staff denouncing the document, and the "farting cows" line not being in the resolution itself, it has stuck with opponents of the Green New Deal and led to accusations that the plan would outlaw beef.

    “I really don’t like their policy of taking away your car, of taking away your airplane flights ... of, ‘You’re not allowed to own cows anymore,’” Trump said at a recent Texas campaign rally.

    While cow flatulence is often mentioned as a greenhouse gas source, the animal's belches are the main source of methane, from their enteric fermentation.

    Methane is a greenhouse gas about 80 percent times more potent than carbon dioxide by volume.

    Methane from cows is the main greenhouse gas source from agriculture, and its output is on the rise, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

    But agriculture as a whole only accounts for 9 percent of the nation’s greenhouse gases, EPA figures show, far behind bigger emitters like transportation and electricity generation.
    as if the only thing you get from cows are hamburgers.

    Don't know if I ever had a burger for breakfast.

    I eat bacon and sausage in the A.M.

    Has she mentioned pigs yet? Or better still, have her handlers told her to mention pigs yet?

    I eat an egg burger for breakfast because AOC says I can't eat beef burgers. Soon, no more egg burgers. Only lettuce burgers. This is the same AOC who was saddened that a restaurant she used to work for closed down. This is what she said:

    "The restaurant I used to work at is closing its doors. I swung by today to say hi one last time and kid around with friends like old times," she said on Monday. "I'm a normal, working person who chose to run for office, because I believe we can have a better future. You can do it too. We all can."

    Okay, everything she said sounds great, yeah?

    Except the restaurant said they had to close because higher taxes, minimum wage increasing, and other costs made it difficult for them to continue operating.

    So AOC's policies are why that restaurant is shutting down and yet, she has the nerve to take a photo of that restaurant and pretend she will fix the issue. Quite hilarious, really. While her fellow co-workers are unemployed, she earns a seat for $180k salary. And to top it off, takes a damn photo of herself acting so cheerful. What an idiot.

    But hey, she has millions of people who actually think he's a genius of some sort so that must obviously means she is revolutionary!

    I noticed the reporter conveniently neglected to follow up on the issue of the “skyrocketing” rent.

    I have noticed that people more on the left here at PSD typically don't want to comment on the stupidity of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

    AOC to critics of Green New Deal: 'I'm the boss' until you try
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., dismissed detractors of her Green New Deal on Friday, saying to any critic who has yet to offer their own bold environmental ideas: "Until you do it, I'm the boss."

    The freshman congresswoman made the comment at a “Girls Who Code” event in the Queens borough of New York City.

    "Like I just introduced the Green New Deal two weeks ago, and it's creating all of this conversation. Why? Because no one else has even tried. Because no one else has even tried," she told moderator Reshma Saujani, founder and CEO of Girl Who Code.

    "So people are like, 'Oh it's unrealistic. Oh it's vague. Oh it doesn't address this little minute thing,'" she added. "And I'm like, 'You try. You do it. Cuz you're not. Cuz you're not. So, until you do it, I'm the boss.' How about that?'"

    The comments were met with laughter and cheers.

    The resolution was authored by Ocasio-Cortez and longtime climate advocate Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass. It is nonbinding but calls for Congress to take the lead in ridding the nation of fossil fuels in the next few decades, among other dramatic environmental and economic changes.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is fast-tracking the resolution through the Senate, enabling a vote as early as next week, in an effort to force Democrats and several of their presidential candidates to go on record as soon as next week on a plan that has attracted ridicule and split the party.
    AOC thinks that she is the boss.

    I've never seen anyone triggered quite like conservatives anytime AOC says something. It's hilarious.

    You can laugh all you want. In the meantime, she will be busy weaponizing 2020 for the GOP.

    Weather you are right or wrong painting everyone in a group by the actions of one of its members is not something members of either side should be proud of
