Worse Than Her Faux Pas

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

“If we work our butts off to make sure that we take back all three chambers of Congress,” stumbled U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D.-N.Y.), “uh, rather, all three chambers of government: the presidency, the Senate, and the House. . . .”

The Daily Wire, where I encountered this particular snippet of inanity, could be caught gloating between her lines. And it is funny (amidst the fear) when politicians prove themselves ignorant, clueless, unprepared. Politicians rarely come across as masters of their subject.

But we who are subjected to their lack of mastery should worry about their substantive flubs more than their trivial technical errors.

As the newly elected solon herself had the wit to notice.

“Maybe instead of Republicans drooling over every minute of footage of me in slow-mo, waiting to chop up word slips that I correct in real-tomd [sic],” she went on, “they actually step up enough to make the argument they want to make: that they don’t believe people deserve a right to healthcare.”

I am not a Republican, but I’m here to help. The only rights we “deserve” are those we can have without enslaving and exploiting others. My right to freedom requires only your duty to leave me alone, not systematically taking from others or running their lives. But a right to “healthcare”? The corresponding duties are vague and ominous, potentially limitless.

And thus oppressive. 

A government big enough to give Ocasio-Cortez everything she wants is too big to leave any freedom for the rest of us.

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

    Voters are the reason she is in our face every day.  They elected her.

    As for the right to healthcare:  NO ONE has a RIGHT other people’s services.  My doctor works for a living.   He dedicated himself to learning and has a right to be compensated fully and fairly for his labor and for the knowledge he brings to his profession.  

    So, I might add, do all service providers, no matter what field they are in.  That even includes workers at the much-maligned drug companies.

    Bull shit. The trillions wasted on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars would fund the programs Ocasio-Cortez favors. The way those trillions were used is worse than burning them in an incinerator. And the 8 billion cash that disappeared in Iraq is still unaccounted for. Those trillions could have funded healthcare for everyone.

      How exactly are two failed wars, $8 Billion missing in Iraq, and almost $21 Trillion unaccounted for by the Pentagon… supposed to make us think it would be a good idea to have the government manage the healthcare industry?

    So a young freshman congresswoman misspoke, how, pray tell, does one ridicule that while ignoring the inanity and insanity of the present occupant of the White House, who has difficulty speaking in complete thoughts, let alone complete sentences?
