Random thought, some of AOC's takes on the Democratic Party are bad.

She called them a center-center conservative party. I disagree with her because I think like many socialist do, they like to take the views of the Democrat on the right margin of the party and ascribe it to median, or majority of the party.

Like I said before, I think she is on a fools errand right now with how she thinks she can transform the party. Mostly because she doesn't understand the roadblocks in her way.

Maybe pre-2012 that argument could have had more validity when you compare them to their Euro counterparts. But the dynamics of the Party have shift a lot recently. People think it is because of Bernie and her coming on scene but that is not really the whole story. On aggregate, the modern Democratic Party is a left wing party.

... I do mostly agree, though. I like what she is doing but she doesn't need to target the rest of the Democratic party. That's what other leftists tend to do and it alienates them.

Every once in a while, mistakes are made.

Mistakes happen. A real man admits his mistake and vows to do better the next time.






But I am not a real man. I will go to my grave insisting that this is Lev Parnas in the photo and that this child sex ring was later broken up in 1986 by Detectives Cohle and Hart:



either Trump is a pedophile or he knows Lev Parnas:

or, I suppose both could be true.
