It seems those on the left cannot do math very well. All those numbers and things just clutter up a good fantasy world, I guess."

The Right is not any better. Coming back to that trillion dollar deficit – jacked up from the ~0.6T Obama left. . Do you feel that that is being "good at math’? Do you find it puzzling that the provinces with surpluses (BC, Quebec, NS) all have economically leftist governments?

Do you feel that the American deficit, proportionally triple that of Canada, is better management than Trudeau who gets constantly lambasted for his deficits?

Not being able to afford things doesn’t seem to be a problem in the land of the trillion dollar deficit.

I think the opposition to efficiency retrofits and sustainability and renewable initiatives, is largely ideological rather than practical.

Is it actually a bad thing to use less oil? You’d think that would be something the Left and right could agree on albeit for different reasons (environment vs. cost reduction).

Andrew said, “Eh, she has some good ideas.”

So which part(s) are good ideas?

Getting rid of the oil and gas sector entirely?
Spending an estimated $93 Trillion?
Dropping the boarders and letting everyone on the planet on to US soil?
Free health care to all, even the illegal immigrants?
Free housing and education to the illegal immigrants?

Who is going to pay for all that?

Eh, she has some good ideas. It’s nice to see someone actually aspiring to achieve something, instead of hooting catchphrases and pitching misplaced nostalgia.

It’s REALLY funny watching AOC spew out ignorance as her poll numbers go down! She is truly a gift to Trump.

It’s kind of funny watching the eco nitwits propose completely insane and unworkable policies all in the name of another UN lie.

It is even more funny watching them defend the insane radical socialist left.

In any case, reasonable Liberals (not the insane radical socialist left) also went into “melt down” over AOC’s screwed up Green Deal.

It’s kind of funny watching the right wing media melt down over AOC.
