I Love Ocasio Cortez

She is the embodiment the American woman of today. Go to any coffee house. Go to any PTA meeting. There she is. She iz doing herself so well. She iz God's gift to the Right. Hilary, amazingly, has been topped by an ex-bartender from Queens. Thankz muchly O Lord of Fools.

Been at the pub all day? Does it still take a papal decree to get a divorce in Ireland?

jamalade - 05 May 2020 18:03:56 (#803 of 840)

I do no give the fuckity fuck up where your mother's basement is.

Geri, which country is the first to allow gay marriage by referendum of the people? That is how you are so behind the times. Do try harder.

How are things in Ireland, Jamalade? I hope you're staying safe!

It is very interesting in that you have two state governments here in a wee island. The numbers are low and the "south" have now issued date by date guidelines on how to ease the lockdown.

Unfortunately, in the north, we are hanging on to when London does what it should have done, so it will be interesting to see how it pans out.

Eg, in the "south" people can be fined a couple of thousand of euro for breaking restrictions whereas here it is a case of move on.

The British government had just stated that it is a duty to download an app to help trace. Haha, as if me or my republican friends if we are going to give to the government in London our whereabouts et cetera. They should have set up testing months and months ago. Now they have the biggest death rate in Europe.

The Brexit vote and this virus is maybe a chance to see my Island united once again.

Overall, we are behaving ourselves. We did not need those fuckwits in London to tell us as we had closed down pubs before St. Paddy's Day.

We see loads of state-to-state variation in willingness to follow the rules. And within this state, some interesting island-to-island variations.

But the US as a whole has more in common with "the United Kingdom" in terms of its laws, etc.

jamalade - 05 May 2020 20:10:06 (#808 of 840)

Yes, and their "response" to the virus. And Popularism. And Haircut leaders... Depressing to be honest.

AOC is now on Animal crossing and visiting islands

Great bit of campaigning on the lockdown.

I have literally no idea what this sentence means (and I read the tweet)

AOC is now on Animal crossing and visiting islands

Snarlygog - 08 May 2020 19:05:16 (#811 of 840)

In Animal crossing, you can visit other people Islands via the multiplay feature and interact with them. Elijah Wood (actor who played Frodo Baggins in the Lord of the rings film trilogy) was one of the first to do so, and subsequently many other famous people have invited other players to their island areas.AOC is using this as a way of canvassing her base, she has invites sent to her, which she attends as an Avatar (computer generated character that represents the player) and interacts with other players there.

Garden - 08 May 2020 19:32:31 (#812 of 840)

Thank you, Snarlygog! (I know who Elijah Woods is ;-})

AOC is so far ahead of everyone on social media, it's not surprising she's sorted this out.

Now let's see if the Tr*mp campaign can follow suit. Imagine their islands!

Geribaldi - 09 May 2020 00:04:14 (#813 of 840)

AOC is keeping her district safe from companies like Amazon and job growth.

Snarlygog - 09 May 2020 00:19:36 (#814 of 840)

Amazon is cunt soup.

virgil5 - 09 May 2020 00:25:23 (#815 of 840)

$2000/mo will be four times what you're making now, Geri

Geribaldi - 09 May 2020 00:42:09 (#816 of 840)

Chump change Virgee ...

jamalade - 19 Aug 2020 14:15:44 (#817 of 840)

I guess you gotta think before you twit.

wow, looks like nobody has loved Ocasio Cortez since August 2019, her influence has plummeted.

AdrianNTierney - 30 Dec 2021 02:35:23 (#819 of 840)

She's young and not too bright, eh?

Geribaldi - 30 Dec 2021 04:16:07 (#820 of 840)

She's a rockstar in the progressive wing. You have to give her credit in that she knows how to promote herself.

That being said, I think most of her positions are absurd.
