AOC - "There Is Nothing Wrong With Being a Working Person"

One woman in politics right now, who just keeps getting better and better is AOC-, especially with this speech.


This woman lives in a flat just a regular place like most of us on this website. She's fighting for the people. I doubt the majority of us on this website are rich.

How many of you have worked as a bartender before?

Well those of you who are currently or have done in the past, AOC has been in your position. Just last year, she was a bartender and now she's a congress woman.

People are making a mockery or that Trump made a mockery of that! Well, Trump, not everybody's father could loan the a small loan of a million dollars, the majority of people have to work for what they have. Yes, the "W" word work. And AOC, had to work in that bar, to help provide for her family and pay off her student debt. Her parents couldn't just loan her a small loan of a million dollars.

Even now, she lives in a flat, and doesn't even have a bed. She sleeps on a mattress and she is still doing her best, which I must say is incredible, to fight for the people. She hasn't got a fancy mansion, a flashy car, a designer suit, she has her mind, her voice, her determination and honesty. That's all she needs. Let's say in the future she does get a flashy car, or a designer suit, or a mansion or even all 3, what should we say to that?

Well done, is what we should say. Many may think her telling us that she sleeps on mattress, means that she has to keep herself poor forever because if she becomes rich people will think she's become corrupted. But that isn't necessarily the case.

If she becomes rich it shows us, she worked incredibly hard to get there. She started off as a bartender, became a congresswoman, fought for the people while sleeping on a mattress in a small flat, while even the president is insulting her. It shows us if she can become rich, we can too.

I'm more privileged than her:

I'm writing this MyTake in my bed, I'm fortunate enough to have a bed.

She works as a congresswoman where fellow congressmen and congresswomen are against her. I go to a school where I get along with pretty much everybody.

My father is still alive, unfortunately AOC lost hers.

If she becomes rich I don't see why I couldn't.

Even if she doesn't become financially wealthy, she's still inspirational. Against all these odds she's still fighting for the people, taking on even the president of her country. A real life Wonder Woman.

After delivering this speech people still found something irrelevant to debunk. They were questioning why was she talking like a black girl even though she isn't black? !y question to that is who cares how she is speaking? You can still understand her, so why are you complaining?

Trump has made blatantly racist comments about black people and other people of ethnic minorities, yet he gets to be President.

This girl hasn't said anything racist, but because of how she speaks, people choose to debunk a brilliant speech? Listen beyond the way it is presented and hear the meaning.

Thank you for reading this MyTake.☺❤

  • There’s a very strange social phenomenon where people love to focus on every single flaw a woman has when she’s in higher positions. It’s not a victim complex anymore - it is a very real thing going on and it is quite shocking that it’s 2019 and people still do this crap.

    You said it. Trump is sexist and racist, yet he gets to be president. Most female politicians and female higher ups are picked on due to the flaws that EVERYONE has.

    It’s like saying “oh, but she said X therefore she’s a terrible person.” But have you focused on all the male politicians who say and do the exact same thing (and a lot worse) but NOBODY (not a soul) says ANYTHING at all?

    • So no one says anything about trump? Hillary got away with a lot more. Have you heard she said black people should be taught to heel? You know like dogs.

      Women are attacked just as much as men. Sanders was attacked for his views and her views are even more extreme. People don't like her ideas and attack anything they can to shit them down. I'm not saying it is right, but that is politics and if women can grow thick skin and take it then maybe it isn't for them. The VP was attacked for making sure he wouldn't have false allegations of sexual assault against him by saying he wouldn't be alone in a room with women. Which in the current climate makes lots of sense.

  • Of course there is nothing wrong with a working person. But, what is HER excuse now? Let's she: AOC wants to ban airplanes and internal combustion cars (which use fuel) in favor of trains (which, uh, use fuel or electricity which comes from, uh, fuel) or electric cars (which use electricity which comes primarily from, uh, FUEL.) She wants to replace or retrofit EVERY building in the country to use the equivalent of NO fuel, but hasn't figured the environmental impact of all those products which need to be manufactured in factories which use, uh, FUEL, and which will- by the way- cost hundreds of Trillions (yes, with a "T") of dollars.

    Was she hatched this way, or does she take a "stupid pill" before getting in a fuel-using vehicle every day? She would have to go back to school to raise herself to the level of "massive failure" in her thinking! She believes that the world will end in 12 years if her outrageous steps aren't implemented! If we were to believe her (which I don't), we should just give up NOW and enjoy ourselves because all these ludicrous changes could NEVER- NEVER- NEVER even be minutely partially implemented within 12 years, yet alone completely. Heck, it takes 12 years to get a single environmental impact study done to the satisfaction of her tree-hugging buddies!

    Being a "spidermanfan", you should know the line: "With great power comes great responsibility", yet AOC isn't- and probably never will be- privy to EITHER ONE!

    • "electric cars (which use electricity which comes primarily from, uh, FUEL.) "
      Actually no. Yes, she wants electric cars and I actually support that. If the government invested in renewable energy sources, there would be no need for "FUEL" as you put it. America has sun, they could use solar power, they have sea they could use tidal power, they have wind, wind power- your options are wide and yet America choose to use fuel? Something which will run out in my lifetime. What about the new generation?

      A prime example of a victim of this pollution is my teacher's daughter who is about 3 or 4-years-old. Nobody in my teacher's family has ever had asthma- yet her daughter somehow has it. The most logical explanation for this is air pollution.

      She believes the world will end in 12 years if we as a human race carry on the way we are. Using resources at the extent we are. Give up now and enjoy ourselves? No. I'm sorry, I want the best future for my family. You're 67 you've lived your life, you've been 16, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60. I'm 16 I'm just at the beginning of my life. Don't you think I want to become 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60?

      Let's say the world does end in 12 years. That means my life ended at the age of 28. Your life ended at 79. Don't you want to see 80 or 90 or even 100?

The ONLY thing you could think I'm lying about is my family's dealings with him, which I couldn't care less what you believe because I know it's true. Everything ELSE I mention, is documented fact.

  • Sorry, saying that there is nothing wrong with being a working person is a cliche tarted up as a profundity. The issue is not being a working person, but rather the wisdom of what the working person is saying. In this Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) has not exactly proved to be an inspiration.

    Give the lady her due. AOC has a gift for self-promotion. She understands the logic of social media wherein prominence is conflated with power. Where fame is the coin of the realm. To which should be added that, through sheer grit, she defeated an incumbent primary opponent who looked set to lead the House Democrats after Speaker Pelosi stepped down.

    Grant that her opponent had gotten lazy about attending to his district. For all the nation prattles on about how it wants "leadership" and an end to parochial politicians, perish the incumbent Member of Congress who does not bring home the bacon to their districts. As so often, the public talks one way and acts another - hence Ocasio-Cortez gets her moment to make of herself a gift to the nation.

    For all that, she claims to be a socialist - that term not meaning what it is claimed to be in popular usage - but there is scant evidence that Ocasio-Cortez has ever read a page of Marx. She preaches that which she cannot define.

    Indeed, one wishes some savvy journalist somewhere would ask her if she really believes, pace Marx, that human beings are really nothing more than social/psychological products of the means of production. One hears the crickets chirping in the background already.

    To this she adds colossal arrogance. Politico - a DC based newspaper that tilts liberal and is widely read on Capitol Hill - reports that Ocasio-Cortez caused a meeting of the House Democrats to absolutely explode in recriminations when she threatened to get primary challengers to run against any of her Democrat colleagues whom she believed were insufficiently loyal to her liberal causes.

    The irony here being that Ocasio-Cortez started her career by voting against Speaker Pelosi's appropriations bill during the government shutdown because it included funding for ICE. Suffice to say, the Representative does not feel bound by the rules she applies to others.

    Then there is the "New Green Deal." A ragbag of largely unrelated wishes put in the form of a resolution. Estimated cost - by the non-partisan CBO no less, official cost estimator of Congress - $93 trillion. That, by the way, is more than the entire current GNP of, not just the country, but of the world.

    The resolution itself was submitted against a backdrop of colossal staff incompetence. Including a "Q&A" to explain the bill so poorly written - it included the famous pledge to provide economic security - read a government check - to those who not only could not find a job, but even to those who did not WANT a job.

    It never seems to have hit Ocasio-Cortez that giving money to people who don't feel like working would bring the entire economy to a screeching halt. Not to mention producing all sorts of social resentments. Details, details.

    The icing on the cake being that the resolution is so awful that the Senate Minority Leader - Democrat Charles Schummer - is furious that the Majority Leader - Republican Mitch McConnell - allowed a vote on Cortez's bill. So, the Minority Leader is objecting that the Majority Leader is allowing consideration of a bill introduced by the Minority. Even the bill's cosponsors voted against it. Alice, welcome to wonderland.

    Ocasio-Cortex is a petulant teenager tarted us as a Congresswoman. To mix metaphors, she has become the tail wagging the Democratic dog. Self-respecting socialists should be horrified by her. Her Democratic colleagues - especially the moderates - are horrified by her.

    To wit, probably the only real supporters Ocasio-Cortez has - outside of those whose Democrats who have the bad habit of letting their wishes father their thoughts - are the Republicans. For them, she is the gift that keeps on giving.

C., Ocasio-Cortez seeks to downplay the potential costs of her policy preferences, while spotlighting their benefits (especially when giving interviews on national television).

    • Here's your proof!

      The resolution in Congress from Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) calls for a “10-year national mobilization” that would include:

      “Guaranteeing a job with a family-sustaining wage, adequate family and medical leave, paid vacations, and retirement security to all people of the United States.”
      “Providing all people of the United States with — (i) high-quality health care; (ii) affordable, safe, and adequate housing; (iii) economic security; and (iv) access to clean water, clean air, healthy and affordable food, and nature.”
      “Providing resources, training, and high-quality education, including higher education, to all people of the United States.”
      “Meeting 100 percent of the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources.”
      “Repairing and upgrading the infrastructure in the United States, including. . . by eliminating pollution and greenhouse gas emissions as much as technologically feasible.”
      “Building or upgrading to energy-efficient, distributed, and ‘smart’ power grids, and working to ensure affordable access to electricity.”
      “Upgrading all existing buildings in the United States and building new buildings to achieve maximal energy efficiency, water efficiency, safety, affordability, comfort, and durability, including through electrification.”
      “Overhauling transportation systems in the United States to eliminate pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector as much as is technologically feasible, including through investment in — (i) zero-emission vehicle infrastructure and manufacturing; (ii) clean, affordable, and accessible public transportation; and (iii) high-speed rail.”
      “Spurring massive growth in clean manufacturing in the United States and removing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing and industry as much as is technologically feasible.”
      and others that go past my 2,000 character limit.

    • Unfortunately @Massageman , her bill actually increases greenhouse gas emissions if implemented and everyone already has access to those things in the US. This is the kind of delusional nonsense that only narcissistic vegan socialism would come up with to justify their propaganda.

  • She's done plenty of dumb shit, such as being a proponent of Modern Monetary Theory.

    That being said, it's of course admirable to go from bartender to congresswoman in such a short while. That's most certainly commendable, even if I disagree with her on a lot.

    • As for the reasoning why MMT is retarded for those interested.

      It basically is funding the government deficit, such as when creating the Green New Deal, by just printing more money.

      If there is one thing which causes rampant inflation, it's just printing more and more money to finance fiscal policy (the green new deal).

      Quickly increasing inflation ain't good, it could fuck up an entire economy. That'd be heresy in Germany

    • I see what you mean, but there is an argument to say that you can win, if you have a message that people want to hear.

      It may be an exception, but look at Lee Carter's election in 2017 (Virginia House of Delegates from the 50th district). He campaigned as a Democratic Socialist, and beat a decade-long incumbent Republican by 54%-45% - but the remarkable thing about the election is that the Republican got more votes than he ever had before, but the Democrat got 50% more votes than any previous Democrat in that race.

      You have to give the voters something to vote for.

      en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lee_Carter_(politician)

      Naturally, the Virginia Democratic Party operation is putting up an ex-Republican to run against him in the primary.

    • @goaded The thing is that I don't understand this whole Democratic Socialist thing in the era of Trump.

Progressives are all about this - lots of fear mongering and scare tactics, they make crap up to keep the populace on edge so they can 'save the day'. It's a lot easier to get people to do what you want them to do if they're afraid of what will happen if they don't.

      I find it amazing how gullible people are. There is so much junk science and sketchy data you can't believe any of them.

      There have been at least 18 dire predictions of catastrophe in my lifetime and none of them came true. Please allow us to be just a little skeptical.

      When I was in my teens they were sure we were entering a 'mini ice-age' and everybody was going to freeze to death. Next California was going to split off from the continent and slide into the pacific ocean.

      I could go on, but you get the idea. This whole global warming thing is a bunch of hoo-haw. Just look at Al Gore. Lives in a mansion that consumes as much resources as a small city, and jets around the world burning a shit-ton of jet-fuel. What a hypcrite.

      AOC is a fukkin lunatic.

    • Global warming is real but caused by the island of garbage choking out all the sea algae. As sea algae produces over 75% of the oxygen on the planet, this is the largest contributor. Nothing you do at home will have much effect as Mt. Saint Hellens put off more greenhouse gas emissions than human life as a total. Most of the shit they're pushing now is about how meat is murder and celebrities in L. A. are so special for saving the planet by driving electric cars when 90% of human greenhouse gas emissions come from either A. C. or heating people's homes. She could stop more greenhouse gas emissions by shutting up than her bill would have.

    A nail sticking out is asking to be hammered in.

    A tall tree is bound to get all the wind.

    This is normal. AOC is standing out too much and making everyone else looking like stupid mules in suits. Have to attack her and bring her down to their level.

      I don't want socialism to exist so I can say, "I told you so" It is coming to America, whether you like it or not. Let's get it over with. I want Bernie to win. He's the biggest pussy on the planet. He'll protect us from evil.

    • are you kidding me? She's the best thing that ever happened to conservatives!

      She may single handedly turn anyone who is between a leftist and a centrist into a Republican voter, leaving only a small radical population who will vote democrat.

      Besides, the meme's of her are hilarious! Like every few days there is another lol, and I mean an actual for real laugh at what she does. You should check out the Donald Trump fan club on Reddit, she's always a hit.

    • @Jager66 Sure, Alt-Righty boy. Whatever you and the other right-wing edgelords on 4chan like to jerk off to. lol

    There's nothing wrong with being a little cautious. Dont be so quick to put someone on a pedestal. Also, she didn't need to go for the reverend tone... she should just keep it simple, study up, and don't just try to force her way up so quickly. Getting all that heat is how you screw up. Just look how things are elsewhere. She has decades to hit the top. Also, parties are bs.

      But the deep state shits on her endlessly and she is hated because she attacks the "deep state"... So either she's a socialist idiot who doesn't know how things work or she's a shill for those in power. Choose 1.

      @SirRexington She's a shill no doubt put in there to pretend she's one thing but another. It's the oldest trick they have in the book, yet still works well on sheeple's.

    I can't stand her. She represents the metropolitan liberal elite, and not the blue collar worker. The Democrats should represent the blue collar workers, and not these weird liberal, gender fluid weirdos.

  • Yes, there is nothing wrong with being a working person.

    At the same time I wonder if she really understands the economics about certain things that she talks bout like universal income , or universal healthcare not to mention the Green New Deal. This things are all noble on paper but in real life how does one pay for all of it? When the media asks her this specific questions she beats around the bush. Right now she is getting a lot of attention but I think that will fizzle out in soon. I agree that she is charismatic to certain level and gives a good talk. But charm will only get you so far. You need a plan with concrete numbers and a proposed budget that spells it all out in order to get anything off the ground, regardless of one's political affiliation.

      @cipher42 She won a contest that she didn't even enter on her own. Here in NY we had a contest for a "regular person" to be in congress and get congressional funding. Her BROTHER sent in a video of her without her knowing and she ended up winning the election funds. The city literally gave no attention or air time to her opponent and lots of people here even complained that it seems like she was the only one running for congress. She's LITERALLY a sort of "reality show" contest winner. Our government has always been pathetic but this is a new low.

  • Society constructs a straw man and the world rallies against it.

    What a colossal fucking waste of time. And yeah there is a reason why 29 year old bartenders aren't in lawmaking, it's because your young and you most likely don't know shit. Look at this girl! She's a bloody democratic socialist for fucks sake!!! Does anyone even know what those words mean? Do you understand where these policies lead? You have to look forward, 10, 20, 100 years!!! This is how dangerous the power of lawmaking is, and there is no fucking way a 29 year old bartender understands that. I encourage you all to explore austrian economics vs keynesian economics and understand what we are dealing with here

      Sweden hasn't collapsed in 100 years, and is one of the most successful societies on the planet, but it's bound to in the next 20? Funny how that works. Weren't you saying it would only take 10 or 20 years for the US to collapse from the government looking after its people?

    • @goaded No, I was not saying that about the US, and call it what you will but if your eye is on Sweden in the current year you would not be holding them up as some example. Besides, you can not compare a tiny ethnocentric nation like sweden to the empire that is america.

  • AOC I believe means well, but her ideas are terrible. I mean there might be good ideas scattered in, but they're put together terribly. She uses MMT to explain how she plans to fund things. MMT is pretty much ridiculous.

    And if you're not into figuring out exactly how to pay for government programs, what the details should be, and how much it will cost, then honestly, you're terrible at being in congress, because that IS what congress is for, not just agitating for change.

    With the GND I can't decide if she's completely detached from reality or fully understands she's pitching socialism with a greenwash.

    As I noted above, i'm charitably assuming she's a fool who means well.

    There is, indeed, absolutely nothing wrong with being a working person, with regards to your video. The criticism it drew wasn't about that statement, it was about whether she was naturally code switching or pandering. I think probably the former, but that was the controversy.
