    Not sure about that. The young people are behind Bernie and Aoc more so than Pelosi.

    NY and Minnesota both are likely to lose at least one congressional seat during the next round of redistricting. Will be interesting to see how that goes. I'm a bit more familiar with the NY situation. It isn't out of the realm of possibility that Engler and AOC will find themselves in the same district come 2022.

    Lots of people in BK/Queens are not happy amazon left. There will be large interests in getting AOC out.

    Muslims for a really long time in this country have been told that there is a privilege, that there is a privilege that we are given, and it might be taken away. We are told that we should be appropriate, we should go to school, get an eduction, raise our children and not bother anyone, not make any kind of noise. Don’t make anyone uncomfortable — be a good Muslim. But no matter how much we have tried to be the best neighbor, people have always worked on finding a way to not allow for every single civil liberty to be extended to us.

    So the truth is you can go to school and be a good student. You can listen to your dad and mom and become a doctor. You can have that beautiful wedding that makes mom and dad happy. You can buy that beautiful house. But none of that stuff matters if you one day show up to the hospital and your wife, or maybe yourself, is having a baby, and you can’t have the access that you need because someone doesn’t recognize you as fully human.

    It doesn’t matter how good you were if you can’t have your prayer mat and take your 15-minute break to go pray in a country that was founded on religious liberty. It doesn’t matter how good you are if you one day find yourself in a school where other religions are talked about, but when Islam is mentioned, we are only talking about terrorists. And if you say something, you are sent to the principal’s office. So to me, I say, raise hell; make people uncomfortable.

    Because here’s the truth — here’s the truth: Far too long, we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen, and frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it. CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties. So you can’t just say that today someone is looking at me strange, that I am going to try to make myself look pleasant. You have to say, “This person is looking at me strange. I am not comfortable with it. I am going to go talk to them and ask them why.” Because that is a right you have

    In response, Kentucky Republican congressman Andy Barr invited Ocasio-Cortez to come meet coal miners in his state "who will tell you what the Green New Deal would mean for their families, their paychecks." His concern, he said, is that the Green New Deal would phase out U.S. reliance on coal and fossil fuel, which would wreak havoc on the lives of people who work in those industries. Ocasio-Cortez accepted, saying she'd be "happy" to go, adding that the Green New Deal was written to fund coal-miner pensions. "We want a just transition to make sure we are investing in jobs across those swaths of the country," she said.

    Here's a funny story: Republican Andy Barr had invited Ocasio-Cortez to visit coal miners in his district, he now has found a BS excuse to disinvite her. She had accepted his invitation, of course.

    Turns out there are no coal mines in his district
    .
    AOC called his bluff.

    I thanked your post about Muslims in America.

    What was posted is the truth because my neighbor is one and I knew one growing up.

    But the only thing I worry is that if someone gets in their ear and voluntarily give their life up and take as many as they can with them. That is what Americans fear. They are great people and I can talk religion with them Christian and Muslim and to make this more interesting, they respect our religion as long as we respect theirs even though some of their customs (women) are troubling. Their customs, Democrats would truly hate and it is not going to change and I think it is political in nature.

    The quoted text was spoken by Rep Ilhan Omar that included the " some people did something... " line

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Retweeted NowThis

    The GOP participates in a lobbyist-friendly campaign to trash the VA,

    so we tear it up & shop out vet care to for-profit healthcare corps.

    To reduce VA wait times, we must FUND the VA so they can hire+fill

    the 48,000 vacancies for healthcare providers for our vets. #ProtectTheVA



    I think it is what 1980-90's (R) dubbed "starving the beast"
    but that isnt what they are doing --- what they are doing is executing a hostile takeover for profiteers

    Look it up
