‘National Voice’ Claims Young Democrat Voters Want To See Ocasio-Cortez As President

Published

In the course of human history there have been a whole lot of very, very bad ideas. The list is so long it could fill entire libraries and then some. It’s essentially endless. We seem to have no shortage of new ones to continue adding on to what came before, so it doesn’t seem likely things will change on that front.

However, some ideas are so terrible, so awful, so awfully terrible, that they manage to fight their way up through the massive pile that already exist and enter the top of the list.

Like seeing Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as president, which is apparently something young Democrats want to see.

“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a leader in the progressive movement,” Sanders campaign adviser Jeff Weaver told Politico. “She is broadly popular, frankly, among Democratic voters. She is particularly strong with young voters, voters of color. She’s an important national voice, and adding her weight to the political revolution is a real coup for us.”

Calls for Ocasio-Cortez to be Sanders’s vice president pick have ramped up after Sanders said the New York Democrat would play a “very, very important role” in his potential White House.

To hold the office of vice president, a candidate must be at least 35 years old and a natural-born citizen. Though she isn’t old enough to hold the position, when asked, Ocasio-Cortez, 30, said, “It’d be an honor to be vice president.”

Waleed Shahid, a former aide who has worked with both Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez, suggested the New York freshman has an untapped and far-reaching base.

“AOC is popular among many diverse constituencies in the Democratic base, and particularly among unlikely voters,” Shahid said.

AOC has taken a few shots recently at those competing against Sanders for the presidential nomination for taking funds from billionaires, though she herself has actually done the same thing. In fact, AOC took $2,700 in donations from billionaire Tom Steyer.

Guess the pot is calling the kettle black.

However, it’s still true that a lot of young folk are on board with the kind of progressive program that Ocasio-Cortez wants to unleash on America, mostly due to the fact they are brainwashed from the time they hit kindergarten through college with the idea that government is the solution to all of our problems.

Amazon Rolls Out Creepy ‘Pay By Palm’ Hardware at Whole Foods

Is this one of the harbingers of a cashless society?

Published

Throughout much of modern history, Americans and their cash were two separate things.  One was a human being, breathing and walking about, earning money.  The money was an inanimate commodity of varying value that we used to keep the organism alive, fat, and happy. But in the future, it seems as though we may find ourselves intrinsically, and anatomically indistinguishable from our bank account.  In fact, it appears as though Amazon is banking on it. Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said it is rolling out biometric technology at its Whole Foods stores around Seattle starting on Wednesday, letting shoppers pay for items with a scan of their palm. The move shows how Amazon is bringing some of the technology already in use at its namesake brick-and-mortar Go and Books stores to the grocery chain it acquired in 2017. The system, called Amazon One, lets customers associate a credit card with their palm print. It offers a contact-less alternative to cash and card payments, Amazon said. Of course, the move is being regarded as a terrifying leap into Orwellian territory by privacy experts, as it appears to push us ever closer to a cashless society where hackers and power failures could doom us all to poverty in the blink of an eye.

Fraternal Order of Police Responds to LeBron James’ Tweet Fiasco

And they were NOT happy.

The politicization of American sports has been ongoing for some time, perhaps decades, but the most recent acceleration of this melding has come thanks to the power of social media and the blurring of the line between celebrity and athlete. At the forefront of this movement has been the NBA, and, more specifically, superstar LeBron James. This week, James came under fire for a tweet in which he referenced the Derek Chauvin trial’s guilty verdicts, with a photo of another officer who was involved in the shooting of a young black girl and text stating “you’re next”. The tweet was seen as a threat by many, including the Fraternal Order of Police who responded harshly. On Wednesday, James tweeted a photo of the officer involved in the shooting with a caption reading “YOU’RE NEXT #ACCOUNTABILITY.” The tweet has since been deleted. James was reacting to the deadly police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant. Hours later, the National Fraternal Order of Police tweeted a photo of James’ original tweet, saying: “[email protected], with his vast resources & influence, should educate himself and, frankly, has a responsibility to do so, on the facts before weighing in. This is disgraceful & extremely reckless. The officer saved a young girl’s life. No amount of gaslighting will change that fact.” James attempted to walk back the tweet after deleting it, by issuing an explanation that garnered only a lukewarm response online.
