    LET IT GO.

    Of course she says stupid things. That’s how you get elected, for Christ’s sake!

    I think her comparing Climate Change to WWII was stupid. I think her calling waitressing indentured servitude was dumb. I think any time she responds to Trump's stupidity, it's dumb as it serves no purpose.

    I guess the same thing can be said about Donald Trump, he said things to get elected. Crovash logic, let it go?

    if anyone here questioned me when Trump said something stupid and I said let it go, guarantee that I would get criticized for that.

    how about when politicians, (Democrats or Republican) or even the media (Liberal or Conservative) say something stupid that people criticize it and expect better.


    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    a person is smart. people are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals.

    Sorry, but so many posts about one allegedly stupid thing by a minor politician (which really wasn’t even stupid) is worthy of some form of censure.

    And this obsession with her — it’s unhealthy.

    The last one I heard from the kid was national rent control. Love that one.

    Also accusing Trump of being an anti-semite.

    furthermore national rent control doesn't sound like a terrible idea either.

    what does AOC being a minority have to do with anything. that is not the reason anyone says she is stupid. even valade16 just said that AOC has said/done stupid things.

    if this is an obsession with AOC, then what would you call the significantly more posts about Trump. you know this is the Politics section, right.

    hate for Trump must be unhealthy, don't post anything, at all, about President Donald Trump, in the Politics section?

    How about wage control? You OK with that?

    Rent control does not work. It creates substandard housing ==> slums. You cannot tell someone what they can/cannot do with their possessions.

    There are huge problems with affordable housing…no question about that. But the answers lie elsewhere. Not rent control.

    One allegedly stupid thing……she says something stupid every time she opens her mouth. Last night it was about getting rid of prisons.

    Usually people become more savvy and intelligent with experience and over time…she's just the opposite. Dumber by the day.

    Wage control? As in a minimum wage? Yeah, that's a good idea.

    As for the other answers to problems with affordable housing. What are you answers? Let me guess, free market, suck it up and deal with it, move, etc.?

    If you are willing to agree on rent control are you willing to put a cap on earnings on investments. After all, rental property represents an investment to its owner. So if you can cap rent increases at say 5%, should youy be able to cap stock increases at 5% or capital gains etc.

    What is one person't housing is another person's investment.

    It's like opening up a restaurant and selling a steak dinner for $5 just because people are hungry. The restaurant owner isn't there to cure hunger, he's there to make money.

    As far as answers……like you, I do not have any. Public housing would seem to be an answer but that doesn't really work out too well. They gey trashed, lack of upkeep, etc all leads to crime infested neighborhoods.

    This leads to another interesting conumdrum…

    Why does public housing always get run down?? It doesn't cost anything for tenants to keep the place clean, pick up trash etc. It doesn't cost anything for tenants to care for their apartments in an orderly fashion. So why do they all look so dumpy. Can't be a matter of cost.
