Just when I was really starting to like her, AOC had to come out and say,


 
"Capitalism is irredeemable."

She didn't just say it is broken -- which is true. She didn't just say it's in need of strong reforms, along the lines of the capitalism practiced in the Nordic countries.

She said it is "irredeemable."

That is, beyond redemption. Beyond repair. Hopeless.

 https://thehill.com/homenews/house/433394-ocasio-cortez-capitalism-is-irredeemable

"Capitalism is an ideology of capital — the most important thing is the concentration of capital and to seek and maximize profit," she said during an interview at the South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas, according to Bloomberg News.


"To me, capitalism is irredeemable," she added, arguing that capitalism's goals come at a cost to people and the environment, Bloomberg reported.

The congresswoman, who has described herself as a democratic socialist, added during her interview that "we should be scared."

"Just as there’s all this fearmongering that government is going to take over every corporation and government is going to take over every business or every form of production, we should be scared right now because corporations have taken over our government," she said.

The primitive who wrote the OP might be making a defense of capitalism or she might be criticizing the buck toothed barmaid for being too honest about leftist strategy.  The primitive making the first reply isn't nearly as ambiguous.

Boiling frog
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The boiling frog is a fable describing a frog being slowly boiled alive. The premise is that if a frog is put suddenly into boiling water, it will jump out, but if the frog is put in tepid water which is then brought to a boil slowly, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death. The story is often used as a metaphor for the inability or unwillingness of people to react to or be aware of sinister threats that arise gradually rather than suddenly.

13. Tax it. But don't stop it.

Capitalism creates wealth.

Government is supposed to fairly distribute it.

Therefore government has failed us - not capitalism.
This primitive gets it--understands that the freeloaders need productive people to mooch off of.

Oh, that sweet summer child.  No wonder they so screwed up over at the DUmp, if that  is regarded as reasoned discourse.

I'd have to say AOC.  DU has a very small cadre of socially liberals that  believe in Capitalism and free markets.

The primitive's comment raises a red flag in this mind.

What's she saying way too much about, and too soon?

The primitives maybe have some unpleasant surprises in store for us?

I doubt it, Frank...

The left hasn't had a "new" idea since the Communist Manifesto...

Liberals are like Slinkys.  Basically useless, but they do bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs...

When I read the thread title I wondered if AOC had insulted the French.

DU-folk don't want to see it, but AOC does believe government should own all means of production, etc., Lenin-Stalin-style. And if anyone thinks she and her fellow-travelers wouldn't go full purge-Gulag ...

Help keep America beautiful...deface a liberal.

The Democrat and Republican parties are simply the left and right wings of the same bird of prey.

The road to freedom is paved with dead liberals.

It makes you wonder if some people said "hey, this worked with Obama. I wonder if we could do it again?".

Well, ADX is barely out of Noob-hood. Might be a mole, might be a little more honest than other DU-folk. Either way (s)he is basically predicting more and worse to com if the likes of AOC get their way.

I think if she doesn't shut her mouth, Pelosi's going to contact some of the Clinton's "friends" in Arkansas to quiet her down.  She should probably make sure someone else starts her car from now on.

If she doesn't shut up frogs will jump out of the pot, negros will leave the plantation and illegal's will vote for Trump!! :lmao: :lmao:

To put it in perspective, she got the job with 16,000 votes. At $100.00 a vote that will only cost the dems 1.6 mil to get rid of her. :-)

AOC looks like she sat on a Turgid shaft while her tepid cortex gently sleeps.  Her stiff desires are full of limp biscuits waiting for the gravy.

She obviously has backers, and they want to destroy the US.

She is dangerous, like beto, they are young, charismatic and have a very appealing line of bull shit for younger voters.

So what if it is impossible and we can't pay for it we just need to do it. Right. :thatsright: :loser:
