Boston University Cringes as Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Talks Economics

When I was at university, I knew two fundamental kinds of students. Students who would memorize and regurgitate on an exam, but lacked the ability to comprehend and apply what they learned. They could get really good grades, but never digested the knowledge. Other students, instead of disgorging their knowledge all over their exams, would actually digest what they learned and apply it first to their exams, and then to the rest of their lives.

AOC graduated with honors from Boston University in 2011 with a degree in economics. One of the first economic fundamentals AOC learned in her freshman economics classes was the fundamentals of Marginal Utility. Marginal Utility is the economics of supply and demand. It is why diamonds are expensive and dirt is cheap, even though dirt is more useful. As the supply of a product goes up, its value falls. As the demand for a product rises, its value rises. There is a sweet spot between supply and demand where prices settle in a capitalist society. That sweet spot is always in flux and can range from opportunistic price gouging to liquidating fire-sales. It is the difference between fresh bread, hot from the oven, week-old stale bread, and how many hungry people stand outside the bakery. AOC learned this at BU, spit it up all over her exams, got good marks, then promptly erased it from her memory. She never digested it. Never applied it in real life. And now that she has a bully pulpit in the House of Representatives, every idea that spews from her mouth is contrary to everything she learned at BU, making the university a butt of a lot of jokes.

In 2011, Boston University bestowed on Alexandria Ocasional Cortex a degree in economics WITH HONORS!

On April 1st, AOC tweeted the ultimate April’s Fool joke on herself. She was hungry. She was at the airport. Due to the economics of marginal utility, food at the airport comes a premium price. For the price of a good sandwich at Subway, all she could find to eat was a $7.00 croissant. A lousy piece of bread. Rather understanding the relationship between supply and demand, and being grateful someone thought to sell food at the airport, she rants about how America needs to double the minimum wage, as though that will not raise the price of her airport croissant to $9. Which she will pay or go hungry.

When you are thirsty, you will pay a lot for the first beer, but when your thirst is quenched and you are drunk, the last beer is not worth nearly as much.

Every stand AOC is taking as an American leader is counter to everything Boston University taught her. Either that, or BU should lose their accreditation because they failed to teach this impressionable little Social Justice Warrior anything about the real world. They sure did not teach her any language skills, like.. I think… you know.

Here is a list of classes AOC passed with honors from Boston University.

10 Lies That Shape the Minds of Social Justice Warriors and NPCs

We are individuals as long as we all think the same.

1. Conservative, White Men are the Source of “Toxic Masculinity,” Social Violence and Murder in America.

This is definitive proof that conservative, white, men and women live somewhere else and mind their own business. Stop blaming us.

There are fifteen American communities, the bastion’s of America’s Progressive philosophies, that uniformly voted for Hillary Clinton and everything she represents. It is no surprise their cities are Hell on earth. There are seventy-six American communities that are uniformly rejected Hillary Clinton. Can you imagine living in a place where you really don’t need to lock your door?

The Cult of the Green New Deal

Quick Facts:

  • Right now only about 6% of global energy is green. That means 94% of the energy we use to improve our lives produces emissions. And we in turn produce flatus.
  • Significant use of solar energy will destroy entire ecosystems.
    1. Currently, with ideal conditions, it takes about 2800 acres (4.375 square miles) of solar cells to generate 1 terawatt-hour (TWh).
    2. By 2040 humanity will be consuming about 192000 TWh.
    3. To supply all the planet’s energy needs with solar energy by 2040 will require mankind to set aside a minimum of 840,000 square miles of land purely for solar farms. That is about the size of the ENTIRE Australian outback, about 1/3 of continental Australia. Considering the planning and placement requirements for solar, it will take a lot more than 840,000 square miles of somebody else’s land to make solar a reality.
  • Wind power is even less efficient per acre.
    1. A full power windmill needs at least 25 acres of land, leaving its expected performance at about 1 megawatt-hour (MWh) per 3/4 acre. That translates to 740,000 acres per TWh, or 1160 square miles.
    2. To supply all the planet’s energy needs with wind power by 2040 will require mankind to set aside a minimum of 222,714,200 square miles of windswept land. Since the total surface area of earth, including all oceans and water masses in less than 197,000,000 square miles, wind power is simply impossible.
  • Hydroelectric has strong regional potential, but available rivers are a finite commodity, and is unpopular with the left-libs. Green New Deal cultists will never agree to building new dams.
  • Modern nuclear plant designs are much safer and more efficient than the behemoths of the 60’s and 70’s, and quite cheap compared to solar and wind. Nuclear energy could easily supply global energy needs and is significantly more environmentally friendly than either solar or wind power. Except most people have an underlying fear of radiation, making it socially unacceptable. Expansion of nuclear energy is dead on arrival in the Green New Deal Cultist’s mind.

Today’s Dem-left-prog presidential candidates sound an awful lot like cult leaders.

When I was a kid the Reverend Jim Jones founded The Peoples Temple of the Disciples of Christ. Jones was an avowed communist and friend of California Governor Jerry Brown, and espoused religious communalism. He founded his commune in Guyana upon his peculiar brand of socialist tenets, and encouraged his followers to join him in escaping American fascism. He christened it Jonestown, and over 900 of his followers blindly joined Jones, believing his promise they would escape capitalism, global corporations, and the general evils of the industrial world and enter paradise. On November 18th, 1978, the Reverend Jim Jones ordered his flock to drink cyanide-laced Kool-Aid (actually it was a competitor’s product, Flavor-Aid, but Kool-Aid stuck, as in “Don’t drink the Kool-Aid!”), so they did. And they died, including 276 children.

Do not drink the Kool-Aid!

Blindly followed. They died because they blindly followed. I could make jokes about how the Reverend Jim Jones was only slightly more off his nut than the dirt-eating “The End Is Near” Beto O’Rourke, or the factually challenged Alexandria Ocasional-Cortex, but frankly none of it is funny. Too many Americans abandon all rational thought and blindly follow leftist ideologies and rhetoric like it is a religion. Following these cult-like leaders and their insane beliefs is beyond sheer stupidity, it is a complete abdication of personal responsibility. If you believe in an obvious lie simply because you like the way it sounds or you are too lazy to check the facts, that makes you complicit. That makes you a good little cultist! Not only is the Green New Deal absolute garbage… I promise the world will not end in 12 years unless God has a hand in it… not one crazy left-lib cultist will be willing to make the extreme sacrifices necessary to implement even the smallest portion of the Green New Deal.

Energy production brings people out of poverty.

In 1970 48% of humanity lived in extreme poverty. Global energy use has more than doubled over the last 50 years, and today less than 10% of humanity lives in extreme poverty. The U.S. Energy Administration predicts that over the next 20 years global energy demand will increase by at least 25% as all of humanity continues to pursue the creature comforts that lazy, leftist Millennials and Green Cultists see as entitlements. If Green New Deal Cultists think Africans or Indians or Asians will be willing to give up all the benefits of modern energy production and consumption, they will be in for a real fight. Maybe that is what the progressive left really wants. A global fight. The Green New Deal is Pro-Poverty to the extreme. So much for the summer-time school lunch programs. Sorry, little impoverished kids, delivering you lunch consumes the wrong sort of energy.

Can the Green New Deal be achieved?

Without utilizing nuclear energy there is only one realistic way to achieve the goals set forth in the Green New Deal. Massive genocide on a global scale. Billions. To cut emissions you have to get rid of energy consumers. The science of green technology loses ground every year simply to emerging economies and population growth. There is no other way to dramatically reduce coal, oil, and natural gas as energy sources except nuclear energy or global genocide. Now is the time for the Democratic-Socialist Left-Libs to choose a side. Be a cultist, or convert to a bit more conservative, rational, responsible, independent pattern of thinking. MAGA.

You Cannot Be a Christian and a Member of the Democratic Party

Quick Facts:

  • Abortion on demand is a core plank of the Democratic Party platform.
  • There are no openly pro-life Democrat politicians.
  • Some Democrat politicians openly support infanticide.
  • Human life begins at conception.
  • God forbids his followers to assist in the killing of innocent human beings.
  • People who support Democrat politicians support the institutionalized killing of innocent human beings.

Life Really Does Begin at Conception:

The fundamental, scientific definition of life is a biological organism’s ability for cellular replication. While viruses, sperm and ova are fascinating biological organisms, they are not alive. Viruses cannot spontaneously reproduce and must penetrate a living host cell and borrow its genetic machinery to produce copies of itself. Neither sperm nor ova can individually divide and self replicate. The sperm must penetrate the ovum, where the two previously “not living” cells produce a single, genetically unique, “living” organism. Given proper care and nutrition, the cells of this brand-new, genetically unique person will grow, first in the womb, then in the crib, then in school, then at work, then in retirement, until one day the genetically unique person dies. All through those years of life, that person has the same genetic fingerprint they were given at the point of conception. Despite what the DNC would have you believe, there is no magical Life Fairy who waves her wand and bestows life on a baby after Dad cuts the umbilical cord. Science has God’s back here. Personhood really begins at conception, no matter what the law says. The law used to say that blacks and women were property instead of persons. Wrong then, wrong now.

Abortion Really is Murder:

The fundamental definition of murder is intentionally killing another person when they did not deserve it. Babies are perfectly guiltless. They are a clean sheet. There is no circumstance where a baby deserves to be killed. Even if it is necessary for the health and welfare of the mother, aborting her unborn child is, by definition, murder. Killing an innocent person simply for the benefit of different person is murder. All America has done is legalize murder under certain circumstances. Legalizing abortion does not change that, by definition, an abortion murders an innocent human person. It is quite frightening to know that so many of my fellow Americans accept circumstantial murder. Hitler’s Germany largely accepted circumstantial murder, too. The fact is most of history’s genocides were perfectly legal and sanctioned by the victims governments.

Christians and the Ten Commandments:

The Greatest Commandment: Love God with all your heart and all your soul, and love your neighbor as yourself.

The Ten Commandments:
I am the Lord, your God, you shall have no strange gods before me.
You shall not take the name of the Lord in vain.
Remember to keep holy the sabbath day.
Honor your father and mother.
You shall not kill.
You shall not commit adultery.
You shall not steal.
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife.
You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods.

We Christians have to follow lots of rules. As you can see, these rules are largely to society’s benefit. QUILTBAGers fare much better in Christian countries than elsewhere. Still, it is hard for Christians to follow all the rules to the letter. When we break the rules of God, we are committing sins. I know the word “sin” makes people uncomfortable, as sin implies Heavenly judgement of bad behavior, and no one likes to be victimized by the notions of virtuous behavior. It is so much easier believing that virtue is not better than vice, only different. Easier yet is to believe that virtue is inferior to vice, and should be persecuted for its inconvenience. That might be why the QUILTBAGers keep suing Christians for practicing their faith.

Now for the absolute:

A Christian cannot lend support to America’s abortion culture and remain a Christian. It would be like claiming to be a Christian while denying the existence of God. Or claiming to be a Christian while being a swinger attending orgy parties. Or claiming to be a Christian while lying under oath and sending an innocent man to prison. If you do consider yourself a Christian, and in past years you have supported left-wing, pro-abortion politicians, you have some serious soul-searching to do. It is time to have a conversation with God and either commit or quit. God’s love is boundless. He sent his only son to die for our sins. Yet he allows you the freedom to reject him. In supporting our leftist-progressive abortion culture, you are doing just that.

In a Fit of Anti-Judeo-Christian Bigotry, the BBC Renames Christianity and Insults 1/3 of Earth’s Population

That’s right folks. England’s BBC just renamed Christianity. Church of England? To Hell with them. Protestants? Screw you. Catholics? Do not get them started. Not to mention that Abrahamic religions, with all their divisions and conflicts, are now in the BBC’s iron-sights. You have all been recategorized by a news organization that is still breast feeding America’s childish CNN. You are are all now AntiLGBTians. You heard it here second. England’s BBC reported it first. What a bunch of bigots.

Its extreme leftist agenda revealed, the BBC goes after Christian school teachers world-wide.

The BBC Acknowledges Global Warming is a Fraud

WW1 German Submarine Rises Above Rising Sea Levels.

By showing a lost German U-boat off the French coast, the BBC shows that ocean levels have not risen worth a shit since the boat sank. Otherwise, the coastline and all surrounding communities without ties to Al Gore would have surely drowned by now.
