To see rookie lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Democrat Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) in the same room is frightening enough.

To hear them talking policy is painful.

To see that they want to turn the post office into a bank without knowing it lost over $2 billion in three months is terrifying.

About the post office losing a boat load of money, via Reason:

The U.S. Postal Service lost more than $2 billion during the second quarter of the fiscal year, putting it on track to finish the current year more than $7 billion in the red—way worse than the nearly $4 billion in losses it posted last year.

In its quarterly fiscal report, published today, the Post Office reported small decreases in mail volume and overall revenue compared to the same quarter of 2018. Its big losses are driven by a sharp increase in expenses, primarily workers’ compensation costs, pension liabilities, and payments for retirees’ health benefits.

Check out their super awkward hug…

WATCH:

More from Bloomberg:

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accused banks of acting as “modern-day loan sharks” and called on Congress to enact a federal limit of 15% on credit card interest rates.

The two self-identified democratic-socialists are set to propose legislation on Thursday capping rates on credit card and other consumer loans and letting post offices offer low-cost basic financial services, such as loans and checking and savings accounts.

An outline of the plan released ahead of their formal announcement sharply criticized banks for charging on average more than 17% interest on credit card balances while they are able to borrow money at less than 2.5%.

It’s definitely possible that Alexandria is the most attractive member of Congress.

She’s certainly not the smartest or most clever.

And yet, the New York Times thinks “men at Fox News” continue to pick on AOC because she’s soooo good looking and they could never land her in high school.

Ummm…sounds a little sexist, doesn’t it?

Did the NYT just reduce AOC to an object? Hmmm.

LOOK:

The men at Fox News have a sickly obsession with AOC, partly because they resent her cleverness, charisma and moral vitality, but mostly because they suspect that in high school she was one of those girls they had no hope of getting a date with

Reactions:

when you’re so woke you explain a female politician by her sex appeal

AOC is the perfect person to cover for Republicans. She constantly makes a fool of herself while Democrats have had no choice but to back everything she’s said and done because she’s become so powerful. In many ways, AOC is becoming the new face of their party. It’s amazing.

This is quite sexist, actually. @AOC has a mind and ideas that men can have a problem with. You just “mostly” reduced her to an object. You NYT Opinion folks are really on a hateful roll lately, eh?

Conservatives: The Green New Deal’s socialist policies would be economic suicide.

New Yorkers: You cost us tens of thousands of jobs.

Nancy Pelosi: You are a small fringe in the party. Democrats reject socialism.

NYT Opion: yOu HaVe A sUcH a cRuSh 🤪

NYT doing their best to boost AOC’s self-confidence. They’ve become TEEN VOGUE.

There’s something off about the way a lot of progressive dudes talk about AOC and I can’t put my finger on it but it looks like this:

Dog in Thailand with Three Legs Hailed as Hero After Saving Abandoned Newborn

And he did it all with only three legs.

Published

We don’t deserve dogs. Sure, that has been said thousands of times over throughout the course of modern history, but the logic is still difficult to argue with even with all of that preparation. These creatures, after tens of thousands of years as our only true companion animal, have evolved into not only being fairly well dependent on us, but also to love us unconditionally, and in ways that we could only dream about. New research even suggests that owning dogs has altered the human genetic code, and that being a “dog person” is something that a DNA test can reveal. Furthermore, dogs are kind and caring in ways that we may never be able to replicate as a more sentient animal. Take the case of a peculiar pup in Thailand who this week saved a newborn baby from an unfathomable fate at the hands of its mother. A dog in northern Thailand has rescued a newborn baby after it was buried alive, allegedly by its teenage mother. The baby boy is said to have been abandoned by his mother, 15, to hide her pregnancy from her parents. Ping Pong the dog was barking and digging in a field in Ban Nong Kham village. Its owner says he then noticed a baby’s leg sticking out of the earth. Locals rushed the baby to hospital where doctors cleaned him up and declared he was healthy. Ping Pong, despite having lost a leg in a car accident, has always been a good boy. Ping Pong’s owner, Usa Nisaikha, says it lost the use of one of its legs after being hit by a car. He told Khaosod Newspaper: “I kept him because he’s so loyal and obedient, and always helps me out when I go to the fields to tend to my cattle.…

HERE WE GO: First Republican Rep. Comes Out & Calls For Trump’s Impeachment (Details)

The MSM is about to have a field day…

Published

on

Well, this isn’t good. The first sitting Republican Congressman has pretty much declared that President Trump needs to be impeached. The media is sure to run with this story like they’re being chased. Check it out… From Politico: Michigan Rep. Justin Amash became the first Republican lawmaker to declare that President Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses and that Attorney General William Barr “deliberately misrepresented” special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Amash, whose libertarian views often put him at odds with Trump and his fellow Republicans, posted a series of tweets Saturday afternoon outlining positions that even some Democrats have been unwilling to embrace — an extraordinary development that comes as Democratic leaders face increasing pressure from progressives to launch impeachment proceedings. His tweets: Here are my principal conclusions: 1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report. 2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct. 3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances. 4. Few members of Congress have read the report. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831615952236546 I offer these conclusions only after having read Mueller’s redacted report carefully and completely, having read or watched pertinent statements and testimony, and having discussed this matter with my staff, who thoroughly reviewed materials and provided me with further analysis. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831618712100864 In comparing Barr’s principal conclusions, congressional testimony, and other statements to Mueller’s report, it is clear that Barr intended to mislead the public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s analysis and findings. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831619869728771 Barr’s misrepresentations are significant but often subtle, frequently taking the form of sleight-of-hand qualifications or logical fallacies, which he hopes people will not notice. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831620838662145 Under our Constitution, the president “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” While “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” is not defined, the context implies conduct that violates…
