There is nothing worse in this world than someone that has the authority but doesn’t have the knowledge.
For example, there was an occasion when I was in the navy where an officer came onto the bridge when we were out to sea and ordered us to steer by auto-pilot. Problem was, the auto didn’t work.
It never had. But I was ordered to do it. Imagine my surprise when the captain came onto the bridge and asked that officer why we were sixty degrees off course….
New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was pretty mad after her own party refused to vote with her on the Green Deal.
“I think it’s rich that we talk about how we care about the poor, but all the while we’ll sign on to bills that dramatically increase the cost of a family to get into a home,” he said.
“I don’t think we should not focus on the rich, wealthy elites who will look at this and go, ‘I love it, because I’ve got big money in the bank; everyone should do this. We should all sign onto it,’” he said.
“It’s kind of like saying, ‘I’ll sign on to the Green New Deal, but I’ll take a private jet from D.C. to California,’” Duffy said.
“A private jet! Or ‘I’ll take my Uber SUV, I won’t take the train. Or I’ll go to Davos, and I’ll fly my private jet.’ The hypocrisy!” he said.
That was when wacko Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters asked Ocasio-Cortez if she wanted to respond to the statements.
“I am very encouraged by the sudden concern on the other side of the aisle about climate change, and it makes me feel as though our efforts have been effective,” the 29-year-old said sarcastically.
“At the very least in distancing between the dangerous strategy of climate denial, which we know is costing us lives — at least 3,000 in Puerto Rico in Hurricane Maria,” she said.
“You want to tell people that their concern and their desire for clean air and clean water is elitist? Tell that to the kids in the South Bronx which are suffering from the highest rates of childhood asthma in the country,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“Tell that to the families in Flint whose kids have — their blood is ascending in lead levels. Their brains are damaged for the rest of their lives,” she said.
