It’s worse than we thought!
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has sounded the alarm:
“And I think the part of it that is generational is that millennials and people, in gen z, and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, the world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change. You’re biggest issue, your biggest issue is how are going to pay for it? — and like this is the war, this is our world war II. And I think for younger people looking at this are more like, how are we saying let’s take it easy when 3000 Americans died last year, how are we saying let’s take it easy when the end person died from our cruel and unjust criminal justice system? How are we saying take it easy, the America that we’re living in today is dystopian with people sleeping in their cars so they can work a second job without healthcare and we’re told to settle down. It’s a fundamental separation between that fierce urgency of now, the why we can’t wait that King spoke of. That at some point this chronic reality do reach a breaking point and I think for our generation it reached that, I wished I didn’t have to be doing every post, but sometimes I just feel like people aren’t being held accountable. Until, we start pitching in and holding people accountable, I’m just gonna let them have it.”
I’m trying to figure out if the betting markets are taking her up on her predictions.
The rambling is pretty amazing, going from the world ending in 12 years to we need to do something about homeless people and healthcare – all of it because we aren’t holding people accountable.
You ever notice that whenever she is asked a question, she immediately deflects away and never answers the question – almost as if she doesn’t know the answer?
