    Translated…You just don't get the point. Nothing new.

    Zuckerberg was brought in to be questioned about some new internet monetary system he was trying to set up. The questioning that AOC was "really good at" and Porter ("I really like her") didn't cover any of that from what was shown.

    AOC's questioning…rudely talked over Z and ignored what he said. She then introduced racism when none existed (which was probably her whole point from the beginning)

    Porter…wanted Z to commit to spending an hour a day for a year listening to videos of employee problems. Now Consider: 1. do you know anyone who would commit to doing that? 2. Do you know anyone who would possibly have the time to commit to doing that? 3 Do you think Katie Porter would commit to spending an hour a day listening to videos of her constituents' problems? Obviously the answer to all three points is no. And Porter knows this (any one with a brain would realize this. Maybe AOC wouldn't realize that this was impossible and ridiculous)) So the real point to Porter's questioning is to make Z look bad. But some of you "really like her."

    And, again I point this out, both parties are equally quilty of these tactics.

    And as far as "get those kids off my lawn" … Porter is far from being a "kid," she's at least in her 40s and AOC probably doesn't know what a lawn is…or is that being too bougie?

    I don't get it.

    You, yourself, said that the aired congressional hearings are essentially designed as PR opportunities for the questioner who can gain from making the questionee look bad (and, yes, I know you also said that both sides do it), and then you go on to condemn Ms. Ocasio-Cortez and Ms. Porter for doing reasonably well what the hearing is (according to you) allegedly supposed to do.

    Go back and re-read…

    I was questioning the poster that said AOC "is really good at this." And the other that claimed about Porter "I really like her."

    Good at what?

    Like her for what?

    I don'e see much to admire from either one of them.

    But they are duly elected. No question there.

    Are you such an idiot that you don’t even understand your own posts?

    They are good at what YOU said the hearings are for — self aggrandizing.

    Are you that stupid that you can't see the simple point??

    Zuckerberg was called in to testify about some internet monetary plan.

    None of the videos showed thios question coming up at all.

    AOC and Porter bullied Z during the questioning. AOC talks over him, ignores answers and turns it to racism. Porter asks him to do something impossible and makes him look uncaring. They use the bully pulpit to make a self made man look bad knowing full well he can't respond in kind. He can't talk over them, and suggest they do impossible things to make them look bad. he would be held in contempt. (All of this is pretty much like the Kavanaugh hearings.)

    Two posters go on to say how they admire these two congressionals. The point, that you will never see, is that there is nothing here to admire.

    Someone getting pushed around when he can't push back. What's to admire there?

    Point 1…The speaker and the committee cairs determine the topics, time allowed, and who they wish question and who gets to ask what questions.

    Point 2…It is totally 100% partisan and the repubs do it as much as the dems. It all depends who is in power.

    Point 3…The objective is to make the person being questioned look bad. And the questioner has the upper hand by far.
    Admirably, they accomplished their objective. End of discussion.

    it is already established that AOC dropped a timeline of 12 years.

    2 tweets from AOC..





    April 17 2019, 12 years.
    October 28 2019, 10 years.

    apparently AOC is not good at math.







    AOC needs to blame white people for XYZ.

    https://www.dailywire.com/news/aoc-l...aign=dwtwitter

    On Wednesday, far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) linked the death of her grandfather to white people.

    According to the socialist’s logic, “predominantly white” corporations and communities have set climate change in motion with their fossil fuel admissions; climate change apparently caused and/or amped up Hurricane Maria, a devastating Puerto Rico storm in 2017; AOC’s grandfather died in the aftermath of the storm, ergo: white people are connected to, if not the cause of, his death.

    “[T]he people that are producing climate change, the folks that are responsible for the largest amount of emissions, or communities, or corporations, they tend to be predominantly white, correct?” the 29-year-old asked during a House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee hearing on civil rights and civil liberties, according to The Washington Examiner.

    “Yes, and every study backs that up I know no one is intentionally trying to kill people and hurt people,” National Wildlife Federation’s Mustafa Ali answered the NYC rep.

    “My own grandfather died in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria,” Ocasio-Cortez highlighted.

    “We can’t act as though the inertia and history of colonization doesn’t play a role in this,” she added.

    Pushing back against AOC’s logic, Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) “pointed out that the deadliest hurricane in North American history remains the 1900 Great Galveston Storm, which killed between 6,000 and 12,000 people, making landfall well before the rise of atmospheric carbon-dioxide emissions,” the Examiner noted.

    Ms. Ocasio-Cortez has repeatedly pushed climate change extremism, suggesting in January that we have a mere 12 years before “the world is gonna end.” Of course, the rep’s solution to saving the world is tied to socialist policy, as seen in her widely-panned “Green New Deal.”

    “I think the part of it that is generational is that millennials and people, in Gen Z, and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, the world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change,” AOC said at a Martin Luther King forum in New York City. “And your biggest issue, your biggest issue is how are going to pay for it? — and like this is the war, this is our World War II.”


    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

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