    AOC: Growing cauliflower is 'colonial approach' to vegetables

    Now this is interesting. AOC who is pushing the Green New Deal nationally, i.e., the federal government dictating "colonially," here invokes localism, in a truly grass-roots approach. She's conflicted.

    Would it upset her if I let her know the Spanish and Portuguese introduced plantains to the Americas? I mean it really doesn't get more colonial than that...
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    8 days ago But now she says it was just a joke. Yesterday AOC said people who believe the suggestion that the world will end in 12 years have the intellect of a "sea sponge." AOC said on Twitter: "This is a technique of the GOP, to take dry humor + sarcasm literally and “fact check” it.











    LOL she was really joking.

    Compost is hard to do? You put your material in a bin and nature does the rest. What is so hard about that.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    People in Puerto Rico lived off the land? If land is defined as government handouts I guess she is correct.
