    Default Spartacus lauds The New Green Deal

    Cory Booker, D-N.J., compared the Green New Deal resolution introduced by House Democrats to the American landing on the moon and the fight against Nazi Germany.

    Booker, who is running for president in 2020, was speaking at a campaign event Friday in Mason City, Iowa.

    “Our planet is in peril, and we need to be bold,” he said. “There’s a lot of people blowing back on the Green New Deal. They’re going, ‘Oh, it’s impractical, oh it’s too expensive, oh it’s all of this.’ If we used to govern our dreams that way, we would have never gone to the moon.”

    What is it with lefties that they can’t keep from making Nazis references? That’s a rhetorical question.

    At any rate, here we go. How many other democrat candidates will align themselves with this madness? Do they really stand behind it—or they afraid not to?

    Good job Booker. Millions of Americans will be on your side when you state those unwilling to work should be given a salary from the government anyway. The Presidency is almost yours.

    Didn't Spurtacus reportedly grope a young girl in high school, and go on to grope a young man later?

    Let’s see what the real New Green Deal says when the bugs are worked out of the websites and when hackers stop doctoring some of the documents.

    Occasional Cortex has already backtracked on this, and is trying to claim that it was never part of her proposal.

    That might well.have to happen in the future when AI kills off tens of millions of jobs. Not just manual jobs either, doctors, nurses, lawyers and retail as well.

    To be clear you don’t believe it really says it will make jobs available for all those unwilling to work, we’ll be off fossil fuels in ten years, we won’t use planes in the future etc?

    Ahhh, I missed that. I wonder how much more she’ll have to walk back as more people become familiar with it

    What I'm saying, moron, is that when I look into exactly what the Green New Deal is, I get conflicting information. There's a version floating around that say the GND calls for drinking recycled urine. Comprende?
