Ocasio-Cortez Doubles Down On 'Free-Money For Lazy People'

Discussion in 'Politics' started by Scataphagos, Feb 10, 2019.

  1. When the Boomers have died off, the country will be left in the hands of a younger generation and then, unfortunately, on the slippery slope to becoming the "New Venezuela".

    Seems like "fate cast in stone", as the young people are TOO SHORT-SIGHTED, STUPID AND GREEDY to recognize the HELL they seem to want. (Watch the videos from Venezuelans, especially their ex-pats. Their message... "Don't pursue socialism. It will ruin your life and desroy your future." Duh... wake up Americans!)

    Didn't their mommas ever tell them, "Careful what you wish for. You might get it?"

  2. Zero Hedge is a batshit insane Austrian school finance blog run by two pseudonymous founders who post articles under the name "Tyler Durden," after the character from Fight Club. It's essentially apocalypse porn. It has accurately predicted 200 of the last 2 recessions.[citation NOT needed]

    Tyler claims to be a "believer in a sweeping conspiracy that casts the alumni of Goldman Sachs as a powerful cabal at the helm of U.S. policy, with the Treasury and the Federal Reserve colluding to preserve the status quo." While this is not an entirely unreasonable statement of the problem,[1] his solution actually mirrors the antagonist in Fight Club: Tyler wants, per Austrian school ideas, to lead a catastrophic market crash in order to destroy banking institutions and bring back "real" free market capitalism.[2]

    The site posts nearly indecipherable analyses of multiple seemingly unrelated subjects to point towards a consistent theme of economic collapse any day now. Tyler seems to repeat The Economic Collapse Blog's idea of posting blog articles many times a day and encouraging people to post it as far and wide as humanly possible. Tyler moves away from the format of long lists to write insanely dense volumes[3] filled with (often contradicting) jargon that makes one wonder if the writers even know what the words actually mean.[4] The site first appeared in early 2009, meaning that (given Tyler's habit of taking a shit on each and every positive data point), anyone listening to him from the beginning missed the entire 2009-2017 rally in the equities market.

    The only writer conclusively identified is Dan Ivandjiiski, who conducts public interviews on behalf of Zero Hedge.[5] The blog came online several days after he lost his job at Wexford Capital, a Connecticut-based hedge fund (run by a former Goldman trader). Later Colin Lokey joined Zero Hedge's writing team in 2015 and left in April 2016 publishing an article identifying the writing team as Dan Ivandjiiski, Tim Backshall, and himself. This is quite a bit less than the 40 or so writers Ivandjiiski claimed to be on staff in earlier years. Note that they chose the pen name from a nihilistic psychotic delusion.

    Zero Hedge is not quite the NaturalNews of economics, but not for want of trying. The Hamilton 68 Project notes an enduring popularity of the site among PutinBot Twitter accounts.[6]

  3. So what does this have to do with Ocasio-Cortez being called out across the Internet with altering her document and then attempting to claim the original is a fraud. The original shows her true socialist colors.

    Gee, where have I read this before? Oh yeah, pretty much every time someone links to ZeroHedge.

    It's as if a certain someone has an agenda.

    Don't you actually have some Buzzfeed quizzes to take?

    I wouldn't be too worried about it. These were the boomers.

    Sooner or later they have to get jobs and pay taxes and will resent paying for "free stuff" for a bunch of losers with no motivation.
  6. So... you claim, "everything from Zero Hedge is made-up or BS". HOGWASH!

    Show me that you're right about this or STFU!!

    (YOU and your generation are going to inherit America. Best pull you head out of your ass if you care about your future and that of your kids/grandkids.)

  8. Yeah right... Boomers, the generation with the strongest work ethic in American history, are losers.

    Some fine Millennial crack you are doing these.

    I’m Gen X.
    Boomers are narcissistic cunts (generally speaking of course).
