    Despite the fact that 98% of Americans couldn't do one either, (even if they learned how to do it in college) and probably 85% of Americans never even heard of one.

    If you asked them what it was they wouldn't even be able to identify it as mathematics.

    AOC triggers RWNJs because she is young, beautiful, smart, and outspoken about what the world really needs.

    And they know she's going to be around a long time, and that her power will only grow.


    ps She will be old enough to run for president beginning in 2024.
    I'm not so sure her physical capabilities are the trigger. I also disagree that AOC speaks for the world.

    Being around for a long time is plausible, but she could implode and lose. Anyone know the average number of elections for our nation's 435 Representatives? At the moment, it's 4.5 terms.

    Some data: https://crsreports.congress.gov/product/pdf/R/R46705
    Membership of the 117th Congress: A Profile
    Republicans (including 1 Delegate and the Resident Commissioner of Puerto Rico), and 3 vacant seats. The Senate has 50
    Republicans, 48 Democrats, and 2 Independents, who both caucus with the Democrats. Additionally,

     The average age of Members of the House at the beginning of the 117th Congress was 58.4 years; of
    Senators, 64.3 years.
     The overwhelming majority, 96%, of Members of Congress have a college education.
     The dominant professions of Members are public service/politics, business, and law.
     Most Members identify as Christians, and the collective majority of these affiliate with a Protestant
    denomination. Roman Catholics account for the largest single religious denomination, and numerous other
    affiliations are represented, including Jewish, Mormon, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, Greek Orthodox,
    Pentecostal Christian, Unitarian Universalist, and Adventist.
     The average length of service for Representatives at the beginning of the 117th Congress was 8.9 years (4.5
    House terms); for Senators, 11.0 years (1.8 Senate terms).

     One hundred forty-seven women serve in the 117th Congress: 123 in the House, including 3Delegates and
    the Resident Commissioner, and 24 in the Senate.
     There are 57 African American Members of the House and 3 in the Senate. This House number includes
    two Delegates.
     There are 54 Hispanic or Latino Members (a record number) serving: 47 in the House, including 2
    Delegates and the Resident Commissioner, and 7 in the Senate.
     There are 21 Members (16 Representatives, 3 Delegates, and 2 Senators) who are Asian Americans or
    Pacific Islander Americans.
     A record five Native Americans(American Indians or Native Hawaiians) serve in the House

    Democrats have principles.
    They have a platform. They take positions on issues.

    Republicans are all about image. They dodge critical questions with whataboutism. All they want to do is be the person to stir up hatred for Democrats, government, liberals, immigrants.

    It's not about issues for Republicans. It is totally about getting poorly informed people angry at Democrats. They are only after the votes.

    Democrats are issue-focused.

    Republicans are emotion focused.

    Republicans get votes because their voters are angry and afraid.

    Democrats get votes by making the responsible tough choices on things that matter.
    No argument from me that each party serves themselves first and Americans last.

    What principles do you think the Democrats represent?

    You posted zero proof that Republicans have anything to do with that Austrian economics thing. Until you do, I'm calling bullshit.

    In the meantime, here's some Austrian music:



    OMG I went through the whole thing with a cashier at a supermarket when I was a bagboy.

    She was kinda chunky and in the school orchestra, but we had fun! Yessir!

    I started and she continued, and then I continued..and it went on like that. Back and forth.

    I was in college at the time.
    Edited for an actual orchestra from Wien.

    I happen to have a good friend online for years that's from Wien.

    She'd smack you silly.

    Admit you lied about Congress not being looted or everyone will know you are a loon.

    Admit you lied about me claiming to be an adult or quote the passage. Otherwise everyone will know you are a loon....as if they needed more evidence.
