Green New Deal

Watch Dianne Feinstein Lecture Increasingly Crabby Kids Demanding a Green New Deal NOW!

If our politics cannot be sensible, they might as well be enjoyable. This confrontation easily clears that hurdle.

|

A group of kids and their adult handlers representing an activist group called Sunrise Movement Bay Area visited Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) in her San Francisco office to demand that she commit to the Green New Deal resolution pushed by Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

The confrontation is really kind of priceless (the full livestream is here), as everybody turns into a pill the longer they flap their gums. The kids are kinda cute at first as they ask the six-term senator to sign on to a "transformative" plan whose component parts, price tag, and schedule are so delusional that Democratic contenders for the 2020 presidential nomination are dragging it is "aspirational" and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) waved it away as "the green dream, or whatever they call it." But there's always something disturbing when kids who clearly have no idea what they're talking about are being used by adult activists.

In any case, Feinstein completely stiff-arms the kids, telling them that nothing is "going to get turned around in 10 years," which prompts one of the chaperones to speak up and chide the senator for her lack of urgency.

"You know what's interesting about this group," Feinstein observes at one point, "is I've been doing this for 30 years. I know what I'm doing. You come in here, and you say it has to be my way or the highway." She lectures the kids that she just won re-election by a million votes and reiterates "I know what I'm doing."

Unsurprisingly, as things go on, the kids get crabby, with one of them shouting, "It doesn't matter! We're going to be the ones impacted!" One of the Sunrise adults chimes in, "We're asking you to be brave and do this for us and your grandchildren….Any plan that doesn't take bold, transformative action is not going to be what we need."

Below is a short version of the incident that was edited and released by Sunrise Movement Bay Area. The group also posted a recording of the full livestream, during which the sense of anger eases up about eight minutes in, when Feinstein forces her own version of an environmental action plan on to the kids and the adults. At the very close of the 15-minute livestream, one of the adults sighs, "We were met with a fair amount of condescension, to be perfectly honest."

If our politics cannot be sensible, they might as well be enjoyable. This confrontation easily clears that hurdle.

      4. Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail.

    2. Californians. You know, those Americans who don’t count because they live in the most populous state, making your Electoral College excuses entirely too inconvenient?

      1. Right…dumbasses

        1. If it’s simple farmers, the people of the land, the common clay who you want using their wisdom to pick our leaders, why do they go for the sleazy grifting man whore from New York?

          1. They’re dumbasses too. You do understand this is an anarchist website right?

          2. Ok, Shumer is bad, but this is a little harsh.

      2. There’s lots of ways of electing presidents. The Electoral College is just as legitmimate as any, and other great nations, like Germany, have similar systems.

        We haven’t voted to make any legitimate changes to the system, so, if you don’t like it, you can leave. But you won’t, because it’s not that bad, really.

        So man up and quit being a whiny bitch about it. Let it go.

        1. I’ll let it go when it proves to meet some standard of utility. In my lifetime its only function has been to elect the two dumbest presidents in history against the will of the majority of Americans. So fuck it. Obviously I know it’s the law, but that doesn’t mean we have to bend over and worship it as brilliant law.

          1. you want your president to be ‘smart’? that led to Wilson, the worst president since slavery was a thing

            1. FDR was worse. 70,000 Japanese agree.

              1. No, Wilson was far worse. Most of FDR’s programs didn’t last past WW2, and the Japanese weren’t detained for very long. Repealing every single amendment passed during the Wilson era and improve the country by leaps and bounds.

              2. Wilson had intellectual credentials FDR did not share.

                1. Technically, so did Mussolini.

          2. Actually, over half of eligible voters in 2016 didn’t bother to vote for either Hillary or Trump. When that’s factored in Hillary’s popular vote margin is well within the margin of error for any popularity poll, of which Electoral College elections are not a good substitute.

            There’s plenty of polling evidence indicating that Trump was more popular than Hillary.

            It’s a totally legitimate way to elect presidents. If you want a different law, go and change it. We have perfectly legitimate constitutional mechanisms for that. I’ll be waiting here.

            1. He’s the president of all the people of America, so not allowing their majority vote to determine the outcome needs a really fucking good reason behind it.

              Giving extra credit to slave states is not a good reason.

              1. Well, there’s the whole Constitution thing that no one I’m aware of is rebelling against or voting to throw out.

                Really, that’s all the legitimacy required. I’m sorry if you’re upset, but we don’t all get to have our own president.

              2. In the original formulation the head of the executive branch was the president of a union of semi-sovereign states, and not not giving every state at least some meaningful say was deemed unacceptable, or at least not acceptable enough to ratify the Constitution.

                For better or worse, that idea of a union of semi-sovereign states doesn’t really reflect reality anymore, but apparently the current system isn’t horrible enough to motivate change. Inertia is probably the biggest reason for that, but prudence, indeed, will dictate that rules long established should not be changed for light or transient causes.

                1. Overturning the will of the people and installing idiots as president is not a light or transient thing, in my humble opinion.

                  As the man said, if Thomas Jefferson traveled through time, he would say, “You guys didn’t write any new shit?”

                  1. You mean “the will of ~26% of eligible voters.”

                  2. I’m a fan of democracy on procedural grounds but I don’t see any fundamental difference in legitimacy between 46.1% under established rules and 48.2% under a perfectly reasonable but not currently in effect set of rules. And the very same system could, in principle, deliver to you a philosopher-president rather than Trump. Given the low esteem you seem to hold much of the country in, I’m not sure why you think the popular vote will forever result in an your preferred outcome.

                    Believe me, there are plenty of changes I’d like to see made to the Constitution. I’m really not that committed to the electoral college, but I can’t get that worked up about it either.

                  3. The other candidate receiving electoral votes was a different sort of idiot.

                    1. And both idiot candidates were there because the two parties that control everything have made it virtually impossible to get anyone elected but their candidates. Maybe we should start there by removing all the laws that protect those parties. We were never meant to be a two party system and parties are private orgs and not arms of the government. Oh, but we can’t because the two parties make the laws. Anyway, the EC is just a red herring.

                    2. We don’t have a two-party system because there are laws protecting that system, we have a two-party system because no third parties have the means to break through and become viable on a national scale. They certainly have tried, and some have come close, but you know what they say about “close only counts in horseshoes and grenade throwing”.

                      Give it up, buttercup. If you are really serious about the electoral college then stop your bitching on this website, write an amendment to the Constitution and organize around the country to get the necessary support to pass it. Good luck with that. Not that doing so and losing would shut you up, but it would at least give you something useful to do for a while.

                  4. Jefferson had little or nothing to do with writing the Constitution.

              3. He’s the president of all the people of America

                No, he’s the president of the Federal Government. That’s a big and important distinction.

                1. Zeb brings the wisdom, as Zeb is ought to do.

                2. ^THIS — The President of the Union of Sovereign States shouldn’t be elected by NYC and LA.

                  Actually the electoral college gives HUGE advantages to populace states instead of every State getting a single vote in the Union.

              4. Prior to 1865 people identified with their states not the federation. Before the Civil War it was the United States are, after it was the United States is.

              5. There is a really good reason behind it.

                Look at an electoral map. Look hard. Maybe, just maybe you’ll see something.

                1. The implicit assumption that uneducated hicks deserve more of a say in our national government than decent, smart people? Yeah, I get it.

                  1. Decent, smart people don’t exist on the left.

                    1. “Decent, smart people don’t exist on the left.”, Second that. California having the nations highest poverty rate (23.5%) of any other state (the only one to exceed 20%). Begging the federal government for $7B to prevent Filing for Bankruptcy and LOOSING residents and businesses by the year would be a pretty good factor.

                      Its starting to look a lot like Detroit – the other seriously “Left-Wing” managed area.

                  2. You get to vote and you’re one of the dumbest most idiotic brain dead obnoxious faggot retarded ever to waste oxygen. Seriously kill yourself. You are an absolute embarrassment to humanity you worthless piece of shit.

                  3. Since you are such an asshole what’s your level of education and from what institution did you attend?

                  4. You lump yourself in among the “decent, smart people”? No, you don’t get it.

              6. At the time of the Founding, the most populous state was Virginia.

              7. Tony you are truly a moron. We are not a democracy. If we were this entire thread would would vote for you to go live on a mountain in Ecuador. Read the Federalist and then the Constitution to get an idea of why the founders put the electoral college in place. Your pre-GED thinking displays your ignorance magnificently.

              8. We fought a civil war to end “slave” states. We won and slaves no longer count toward representation in the Electoral College. Did you miss the Civil War part in school?

              9. Well, given how well gay rights poll…are you SURE you want the majority to rule here?

                You are, what, 3% of the population?

              10. Your argument for dissolution of the Union has been noted and Seconded.

              11. You do realize that by your logic Abraham Lincoln was also an illegitimately elected President? In 1860 he was not only nominated thanks to smoke-filled rooms and 3 ballots at the convention, but only garnered less than 40% of the popular vote while winning the electoral college with 180 votes. Quite the blow against the will of the people, I’d say.

          3. “I’ll let it go when it proves to meet some standard of utility. In my lifetime its only function has been to elect the two dumbest presidents in history against the will of the majority of Americans.”

            It’s to keep shitbags like you from electing even scummier ones.
            And it worked.

            1. When you are in a corner eating your own feces, do you ever stop to think that perhaps you are not representative of the average American?

              1. Do you?

              2. Tony|2.23.19 @ 6:28PM|#
                “When you are in a corner eating your own feces, do you ever stop to think that perhaps you are not representative of the average American?”

                That’s the best you’ve got, you pathetic piece of shit? 10 minutes to craft a response and you, as a fucking asshole in Oky who is gay asks if I’m not an ‘average American’?
                What does it take for you to be embarrassed?
                Fuck off, shitbag.

                1. What does it take for you to be embarrassed?

                  Encountering you in public.

                  1. “Encountering you in public.”

                    If you were anywhere close to a decent human being, looking in a mirror should make you ill with embarrassment, shitbag.

              3. Do you ever stop to think that maybe it’s true what everyone says about you, that you’re a brain-dead mouth breathing retard?

          4. Sports championships don’t count total number of points over the season. They count total number of wins.

            About the closest any sport gets to violating that is golf, and only because each tournament is split over several days. Like old-fashioned cricket.

            There may be some sports which count total season points, but I am not a sports fan and don’t really care about the few oddballs.

            There must be some instinct to measure points that way.

            And since that is the rules, why was Trump smart enough to campaign according to the rules, why was Hillary too dumb to campaign according to the rules? Maybe the election actually did choose the smarter candidate.

            1. If Hillary had campaigned more in the states she nearly ignored, she probably would have lost by a greater margin.

            2. And if it was for the popular vote, Trump would have won that too. Because he’s a winner and Hillary is a loser. Loser.

          5. I can think of two things the EC has accomplished right off the top of my head: it prevented She Who Shall Not Be Named from becoming president, and it drives people like you crazy. So right there it justifies itself.
            BTW, did you know that Bill Clinton won with only C of the vote? That’s right: the electoral college made WJC president, even though a majority of voters voted for someone else.

            1. C=C
              (Wtf autospell?)

              1. Whoa it did it again. I must be using some html code I don’t know.
                C= 43 percent

                1. “Whoa it did it again. I must be using some html code I don’t know.”

                  Yeah. “Learn HTML coding easy!”
                  Fuck that; Welsh, get some updated software, or next year’s check is $0.01. Or less.

          6. I’ll let it go when it proves to meet some standard of utility.

            Well, it kept one of the most corrupt politicians of my lifetime – and that technically includes Nixon – out of the Oval Office . . .

          7. You calling people dumb is the new Webster’s entry under irony.

          8. I dont think Obama was THAT dumb. Intellectually incurious to an astounding degree for sure.

      3. So, because they live in the most populous state they deserve to be able to ride roughshod over the rest of the country?

        Every day, in every way, you show your support for enslaving human beings.

        1. Better to be enslaved by intelligent urbanites than sheep fuckers, if you insist on framing it that way.

          1. Speaking of which, how is the farm down in Oklahoma, Tony?

          2. How about not being enslaved at all?

            1. Tony member considers that an option.

          3. I suspect you would find more people who actually fuck sheep among “intelligent urbanites” than you would among common people in the interior states.

          4. Thankfully the sheep fuckers aren’t trying to enslave anyone. If you insist on framing it that way.

            But you keep on keeping on trying to frame that ‘slavery is freedom’ argument in a palatable way.

            1. I genuinely cannot understand how you believe that intelligent urbanites voting is enslaving people while sheepfuckers voting is not. Take it from someone from “middle America,” those hillbillies are not voting to leave people alone. They’re mostly voting to impose their religion on me.

              1. Nice martyr complex you pathetic spineless pussy excuse for a man.

                1. Stop talking to me like my wife does. It’s making me a little hot.

                  1. I’ll go back to reiterating that you’re too fucking stupid to breathe, you inbred faggot.

              2. Tony, have you ever noticed that urban areas do not vote 100% for Democrats. Who do you thing is voting (R) in these areas? I’ll give you a hint: It’s not high school dropouts by a long-shot.

          5. If you accept the premise that an intelligent electorate puts forth Feinsteins, Harrises, and Newsomes as evidence ofthe their collective wisdom.

            1. Ooh, don’t forget Pelosis, Ocasio-Cortezes, and Sanderses!

              Pinnacle of human wisdom and insight, the left! Really, Tony, why should we have elections at all, when one side is so clearly superior, right?

          6. I can see you’ve never been to California.

        2. Yes, why should 50% +1 of CA voters control all of the EC votes? Maine apportions their EC votes, as should CA, particsince the greatest number of people are mis-represented there.

          1. Agreed. It would be interesting to see the results if all states adopted a district-by-district apportionment of their electoral college votes. It certainly would spur voting interest in California

        3. Tony doesn’t think it’s fair that he has to share the ball. He’s the biggest kid on the playground and should just be able to take the ball from the other kids.

          1. Probably not the biggest but certainly the mouthiest.

      4. Just think, Tony, if California seceded from the union as they have been threatening, Democrats would never win another national election.

        1. They would however be one of the world’s biggest economies, no thanks to Republicans, whom you seem incredibly willing to defend.

          1. If they seceded they’d be able to build that high-speed rail *and* make good on their pensions!

            1. And i bet paying for shit like water would be cheap. And the people who grow the food would likely not leave.

          2. They would however be one of the world’s biggest economies

            Not after the I-5 corridor gets nuked.

          3. No thanks to the Democrats either, whom you seem incredibly willing to defend.

          4. I’ve always found that to be an interesting take. If it weren’t for the US government investing all that money in Cali, it would likely still be a bunch of farmers, gold miners, and movie mills. There would be no silly-con valley or much else. If Cali managed to successfully secede the Cali economy would be no where near as big as it is as it would directly lose the 13% of its GDP it gets from the US government.

            Now how many defense contractors in California are going to hang around? It would depend on whether Uncle Sam felt they could trust contractors in a foreign country. Last I checked, we don’t have many defense contracts being farmed out to Japan, China, or India so some contractors might move out of Cali. Well, maybe those contractors would move out of West Cali as it’s likely that Cali would be torn in two since the coast is decidedly blue and the inland agricultural areas are quite red and East Cali would also likely be happy to rejoin the union and leave the left coast to its own devices.

            Yeah, Cali would do fine once 1/3 of their annual budget that they get from the Fed is gone. They can’t pay for Calpers now, that debt obligation isn’t going anywhere if they could break free.

          5. No more. Now California would be one of the world’s biggest bankruptcies with no federal funds available to bail it out of its mad spending.

      5. The state with perhaps the most dysfunctional government in the Union? You want to put them in charge?

      6. Californians. You know, those Americans who don’t count because they live in the most populous state, making your Electoral College excuses entirely too inconvenient?

        You mean that state with far more electoral college votes than any other state (53, compared to second place Texas at 36) as determined by its population?

        Die in a fire, you lying shit.

        1. I am of course referring to the sterlingly logical argument, deployed in defense of Donald fucking Trump, a big fat stupid piece of orange lard, that he would have won the popular vote if we don’t count California.

          This usually comes garnished with “because of all the illegals voting,” in case we didn’t get the point.

          1. Tony|2.24.19 @ 1:07PM|#
            “I am of course referring to the sterlingly logical argument, deployed in defense of Donald fucking Trump, a big fat stupid piece of orange lard,…”

            We are referring to the slimy fucking lefty ignoramus from OK.

      7. … those Americans who don’t count because they live in the most populous state…

        Half of them don’t count because they can’t vote. Why should voters in Cali get more representation in the Electoral College than they do now? On a vote eligible per representative level Cali has 456,452 voting eligible adults per representative which is only slightly over the US average of 431,648.

        It’s bad enough that Cali claims to get screwed on taxes but a such a slight deviation from the national average is an awful lot to cry about. Sorry, it’s hard to feel bad for a “donor” state that makes over 14% of the US income but only pays 12% of the taxes. Fortunately for me my contract is almost up and I’ll be able to get the hell out of Cali and away from these whingers in a little over a year.

      8. So you don’t believe Rhode Island, Hawaii and Vermont should have Senators either right? You know that whole Electoral college thing. Must hurt that only 6 states have more liberals than conservatives

        Government is great till the other team has the ball Tony. You know, if you don’t like how the US is run – you know the Electoral College, all the lowly farmers and all, unlike in other countries you are free to leave.

        But than you who have to leave your mom’s basement.

      9. lol…if you ask most Californians who the senator is they’ll probably say Gavin Newsom

    3. Seriously, if your options are Feinstein or one of those kids, is Feinstein really such a bad choice?

      1. I would much rather vote for those kids — not for Feinstein or the adults trying to pimp those kids out. But the kids themselves. Absolutely.

        1. It’s a tossup. Stupid, ignorant kids or evil, conniving old bitch. Douche or turd sandwich.

        2. I’d abstain. Or start a revolution.

      2. To be totally honest and fair, those witless kids and their even more witless adults actually made Feinstein look pretty savvy. And that takes some doing.

  2. Watch out li’l commies. Senator Feinstein is packin’ heat!

    1. Communist Party leadership get all the perks the serfs dont.

    2. The only heat Feinstein is packing is when she unleashes one of her dusty farts.

      1. Too old for hot flashes?

  3. “It’s me or the Republican every damn time, and I know you’ll vote for me, so quit bringing your bratty kids in here as political leverage and get out of my office.”

    1. Didn’t she run against a Democrat in the general?

      1. My Goodness. She did. Kevin de Le?n? Kind of a grey man.

  4. LOL the Democrats have been pushing socialist policies since FDR and have been buying votes promising free stuff, prosperity and government protection. And now Feinstein claims nothing is going to get turned around in 10 years?

    It’s hard to get off the socialist train after promising socialist policies will deliver prosperity for 90 years. I think the Democrat establishment knows it, but they can’t stop what they’ve been promising. And the RINOs aren’t trying to stop them either. Trump on the other hand, has taken a stand saying the USA will never be socialist.

    1. The kids here are not demanding prosperity, but an end to it.

    2. You mean when Democrats were creating modern civilization as we know it?

      What have Republicans done in that time? What roster of successes do they have to offer?

        1. Opposing the forced relocation of Japanese immigrants, voting for the Civil Rights Act after the Democrats filibustered… trivial things, really.

          1. Tony cannot compute

          2. Name something from the last 40 years. Something relevant to what the Republican party is today. Not from way beck when it contained people with morals and intellects.

            1. Blackface?

              Oh, wait: that’s the Democrat governor.

              1. Why is blackface only offensive to you when a Democrat does it?

                I have but one bit of advice. Leave the cult before the kool-aid is served.

                1. Because when did you stop beating your wife again?

                2. Tony, why is blackface not offensive to you *when a Democrat does it*?

                  1. I have never offered support for that idiot.

                    1. But you have offered unwaivering support for the Democratic Party while offering unwaivering contempt for the Republican Party. How many Republican politicians have done blackface?

            2. The wall. Medicare prescriptions. No Child left Behind. The Patriot Act and NSA spying. The Iraq war. Keeping watch over Kenyan muslims trying to take over the USA. CAFTA. Ensuring eternal life for Terry Schiavo. Making sure that lenders never have to suffer when they lend too much to bankrupts. Drill baby drill. USA!USA!USA! Protecting blue dresses from sexual abuse long before #metoo protected blue dresses from sexual abuse. Making sure that airplane travellers no longer have to worry about someone else’s boxcutters, lighters, privacy – while yelling at those damn unarmed kids in disarmed schools who keep whining about people with guns and ammo.

              The Rps are keeping up their end of the DeRp.

            3. Name something the Democrats have done in the last 40 years?

              How about getting us into a war in Kosovo? Pushing crack-cocaine sentencing disparities? Destroying whole cities through corruption and fiscal mismanagement?

              1. Electing a rapist (and possible child rapist) to the White House. Nominating a child rapist apologist and victim denier to the White House race.

            4. Reagan (Republican) destroyed the USSR and ended the cold war. Unfortunately, the cold war has come back new and improved with Russia and China to contend with.

            5. Reduced the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%, making America competitive again!

              This is the most significant government action in 40 years. The impact will be felt for decades.

            6. NAFTA.

              And you’re not seriously trying to argue that the south flipped are you? The same south that elected Democrats to national office and governorships until nearly 2000? Cause that would Ben incredibly fucking stupid of you.

            7. “”Name something from the last 40 years”‘

              Adding drug coverage to Medicare.

              More recently, federal sentencing reform.

      1. Modern civilization as we know it?

        You mean the Klan? Destroying mixed income and mixed race communities to put up some of the most horrible housing projects in the Western world – stuff that gives France’s Muslim banlieues a run for their money? You mean the people who fought to maintain slavery as an institution and when that failed fought to force segregation and when that failed had to basically be forced at gunpoint to recognize civil rights for minorities? The people who jailed gays? Who pushed the concept of miscegenation? The people who drug us into the Vietnam war – through two Presidents – until a *Republican* finally had the balls to walk away? The Drug Warriors?

        Those Democrats?

        1. Of course. That’s just the price we pay for civilization. Can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs.

        2. Forgot locking up 70,000 people based on race.

      2. Finally ended the Cold War and the horrible Soviet Union by engaging in an arms race they knew socialists couldn’t afford?

      3. The Democrat’s are currently supported by the self-loathing part of civilization that is now into cutting.

      4. Creating modern civilization? Haha, ok, do elaborate, this will be a good one.

      5. Do you tire of being such a one dimensional low IQ twat, you retarded Okie fag?

    3. Obama said the US will never be socialist. Just because someone says one thing doesn’t mean they’re not going to flat-out do the opposite.

  5. One minute is all I could stomach. These kids spouting off memorized lines — “Some scientists have said we have to turn this around in 12 years” — Occasional Cortex is now an Occasional Scientist I suppose. These kids are way too young to understand what a 12 year span is, let alone any of the science or even politics.

    Hell, their parents don’t understand the science or politics either, and I wonder if even they understand what “12 years” is. And to drag their kids into this …. good grief. I remember when Goldwater made some whistle stop tour and we kids beat up on our mother to see it — she was a socialist and we didn’t have a clue what that meant or what he stood for, he was just someone famous coming to our podunk town. We wouldn’t have understood any of the politics if either had explained them to us.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if these kids barely remember this little parade 20-30 years from now, other than the pictures they trot out on Thanksgiving.

    Then Feinstein — “y’all ought to listen” — hey, bitch, they’re asking you to listen, and that’s all you got? “I won this election” — “with our votes” — “so you need to shut up and trust me”.

    Barf. But entertaining barf for a minute or so.

    1. “I wouldn’t be surprised if these kids barely remember this little parade 20-30 years from now, other than the pictures they trot out on Thanksgiving.”

      I’m really hoping some do, with more than a bit of embarrassment.

      1. That’s something I hadn’t really thought much about. I know I did all sorts of stupid shit when I was a kid, but now it’s all just vague memories triggered by something unexpected. Parents weren’t all that much into cameras and books of photos, sure weren’t into documenting every loving minute of our lives instead of just having a life.

        I can’t imagine growing up where your parents video every stupid little episode in your life, where you can’t forget all that stupid shit, or even pretend to forget it — someone will always be saying “Remember when little Timmie fell down the well and Lassie came and got us?”. You can’t lie about the size of fish. You can’t tell the grandkids how long the walk to school was, through the snow, uphill both ways.

        Is that why kids nowadays are so screwed up — their entire embarrassing childhood is literally unforgettable?

        1. I would think at least a few of them would be disgusted by how they were used if they see that when they’re older.

        2. That is absolutely one reason why kids nowadays are screwed up. Bright, ambitious kids today live their lives walking on eggshells and fearfully avoiding risk-taking, knowing that any gaffe or misbehavior can follow them forever and emerge from the depths to ruin their lives. There are arguably positive results from that, such as later onset of sexual activity, less teen pregnancy, and lower rates of drug use and accidental deaths, but that comes at the cost of a lot of neurosis among young people with high hopes for their futures. Conversely, young people who have already made serious mistakes often give up on their lives, expecting that they will never get a second chance.

          1. What we need is a good old fashioned solar flare.

    2. The current crop isn’t. At least not while in college. It’s their political bonafides.

    3. I’m siding with Feinstein for once. Adults don’t have to listen to children’s demands. People who think Feinstein is in the wrong are the people who think their children are the boss.

  6. Let’s give ten-year olds the vote!

    1. Teachers have to “supervise” the kids at the voting booth though.

    2. If we have each person one vote for every 10 years on this planet, Sevo alone could cancel out the votes of this whole classroom.

  7. “It doesn’t matter! We’re going to be the ones impacted!”

    Is there anything more childish than insisting that everyone else in the country should sacrifice our standard of living for them?

    1. The country’s debt is also going to be impactful. They might want to think about addressing that. For the children.

    2. “We’re going to be ones impacted!”

      “Then go out and get a fucking job to pay for this shit, pipsqueak.”

      1. If the New Green Deal Leap Forward actually happened, the only jobs available would be killing their teachers and taking their stuff.

    3. I blame leftests.

    4. Yes there is. Forcing them to pay the perpetual interest on $22 trillion (and rising fast) so that they have to sacrifice their standard of living for us. And then lecturing them about being selfish children who don’t know anything about finance.

      1. They’re free to leave.

      2. What if the kids were really concerned about the national debt?

        1. They’ve been taught that the only reason there’s a national debt is that billionaires aren’t paying their fair share.

        2. Name one adult who is telling them in meaningful terms?

          Happy Birthday Kid. You are now one year old. Since your last birthday, we incurred $3030 in additional debt just for you. Since both of us are selfish entitled little shits, we’re gonna give you our share of the debt too. So that’s $9090 in debt. Now cuz you’re new to this game, we’ll cut you some slack this year. We’ll confiscate your allowance and send the IOU in your name to Jimmy Kneecracker over there. See him? Wave. You’ll be seeing a lot of him when you get out of school. Hell you’ll probably owe him a house by then and he’ll be wanting you to pay for it.

          Your loving parents

          1. I can’t help but see Boomers as a generation which ravenously consumed all prosperity which came before – Spoiled rotten by the Greatest Generation, who wanted to spare their children the staggering hardships they had endured – AND that which might have come after – voting to pillage the future as far out as they could to secure their retirement options and support the unsustainable lifestyles their parents taught them they deserve, regardless of whether they produce enough to cover expenses, at the expense of their children and grandchildren. Boomers were truly the proto-millennials; it’s just that there was still plenty to take during their heyday, so their unjustified sense of entitlement didn’t contrast as starkly against the available goods/services.

            Ours is now a culture where fiscally responsible people can’t afford college or a new car, because the providers of these goods and services know that the majority of their clientele are willing to forfeit their future to debt slavery, so why would they sell their product for what it’s worth, when there are any number of short-sighted, ignorant fucks willing to let a lender screw them over so they can pay ten times as much?

            It’s a little strange that modern psychologists can recognize something like the ‘little emperor’ epidemic for what it is, but don’t recognize the stupid shit we do here for what it is.

            1. Boomers were truly the proto-millennials; it’s just that there was still plenty to take during their heyday, so their unjustified sense of entitlement didn’t contrast as starkly against the available goods/services.

              The savings rate in the US was in the double digits for several decades after the Depression, all the way up through the mid-80s. Not coincidentally, this wasn’t too far after the point where the Boomers first reached their peak earning power. And what did they do with it? Ramped up consumer debt to insane levels, and the national debt even further. The only time the savings rate has been above 10 percent since then was during the last recession, and it was mainly people paying down or writing off whatever debt they’d accumulated up to that point. Gen-X and the Milennials haven’t been much better, although they’ve done a great job ramping up student loan debt.

              I’ve actually seen leftists argue that taking the savings rate back up to 50s and 60s levels would be bad for the economy “because that money would just be sitting there.” Says a lot about where their heads are regarding personal and national finances.

            2. “”Ours is now a culture where fiscally responsible people can’t afford college or a new car, because the providers of these goods and services know that the majority of their clientele are willing to forfeit their future to debt slavery”‘

              There are colleges people can afford without credit. But the school may not be snooty enough or woke enough. So kids today would rather volunteer for the “debt slavery” and then complain that they volunteered for “debt slavery”. Which leads me to believe they were not that bright from the start and college isn’t really gonna help.

    5. I’m surprised Feinstein didn’t respond by telling the kid that an anonymous source had reached out to her to accuse the kid of running rape parties.

      1. Be patient…

    6. Well, they are children. Kids are gonna do childish things; it’s the adults’ job to stop them, not egg them on.

  8. Diane Feinstein has her “own New Green Deal”.

    Its money!

    No fucking way is Feinstein going to cater to a Democratic Party busting skew toward Communism. Feinstein knows that America outside of Commifornia and NY will never accept Alexandria Not so Great’s New Deal.

  9. They came with their metaphorical MAGA hats, and Feinstein pounded her metaphorical drum in their face. Or, wait, was it the other way around? Either way, it could have used some BHI to really spice things up.

  10. As much as I hate Diane Feinstein, she’s not the bad guy this time. It’s the people pimping out children for political gain. What kind of scumbag tells children that the world is going to end in 12 years and your all going to die unless you can convince this old lady to do what we tell you. They probably went home crying.

    1. Senator Bill Cassidy won big against this once.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olvlTeUBawY

      It’s beautiful.

      1. Yeah I remember that:). My God those leftests are insufferable.

    2. I was six when I went to Disney World and came out of the Spaceship Earth thing crying because I thought the world was going to end. I don’t blame my parents — they had no idea what was in there.

      I turned out alright, though.

      1. “I turned out alright, though.”
        Sure ya did, buddy, sure ya did. *looks away while single tear falls*

    3. Someone sick enough in their head to actually believe that, like their dumb teacher. Public education as child abuse.

    4. No, she’s still the bad guy. Its just that there’s no good guy here.

  11. Look at those SJW Progressives disrespecting that old lady – interrupting when she’s trying to answer their harassment and even ganging up on her so she can’t get a word in edge-wise. Why didn’t their chaperones do something about this? I bet their parents are just the same, and only teach them SJW stuff at home.

    And where’s the wall to wall coverage from the news media? This sort of action is ageist, at the very least.

  12. Maybe we Koch / Reason libertarians can try something like this. We should get children to visit the offices of anyone in Congress who doesn’t want to #AbolishICE.

    1. I got orphans for rent.

      1. A+, for sacrificing polished monocles at cost. A hero.

        1. *snort*

          ‘At cost’. There will be a markup.

    2. I will vote for whichever LP candidate addresses a group of kids such as this one with “Shouldn’t you all be polishing monocles?”

    3. I suggest you just try cryogenics.

  13. Oooh Democrats… It’s a brave new world for your party. Good luck with that.

  14. She’s being entirely too realistic for politics, especially when doing politics in front of children. It’s always been the thing I most appreciate Democrats for and am most exasperated by. Americans don’t want straight talk, they want Donald fucking Trump.

    1. You think every non-Trump politician gives straight talk?

      For all Trump’s faults, lack of straight talk is about the last one. Anyone who is surprised at Trump is a fool.

      1. Everything that comes out of Trump’s mouth is a lie. You can’t see that?

        1. It’s stream of consciousness, not lies. For those to be lies there’d have to be some processing between “I thought of something” and it coming out if his mouth.

          1. His voice gets faint and his eyes shift when he’s lying. It’s usually “There was no collusion.”

            1. I’m looking forward to the Mueller report so you can carry that on regardless of the content of the report. It’s going to be great.

            2. Oh come on, Tony! I’ve usually disagreed with you, often insulted you, and occasionally even defended you.
              There is no way in hell that you actually believe the Trump-Russia collusion bullshit. Are you bored and trolling?

              1. I smell desparation.

                Let’s both reserve judgment. Whatever side you’re on (and why are you on his side, again?), it’s bad for all of us if the president is a traitor.

                Also, consult some mainstream news once in a while. The rightwing propaganda you consume exclusively feels that it has an interest in discrediting investigations into Russia collusion.

                1. Ridiculous

                2. You still never explained Tony – Obama and Hillary mocked good old Mitts for saying Russia was our #1 geopolitical enemy. They even gave Russia the mighty reset button. Now you think there is collusion now right.

                  Haha, yeah because no President as ever been a liar. JFK always told the truth, Carter, Ford, Bush, Clinton, other Bush, Obama. Only Trump right?

                  You really should take a deep breath and relax. No-one wants you to have a heart attack. That would take their entertainment away.

                  1. I’m really only referring to high crimes and/or misdemeanors.

                    1. You wouldn’t know “high crimes or misdemeanors” if they sat on your lap and called you “mommy”

      2. I wish people would stop responding to Tony altogether

        1. I just wish I had a life man.

          1. Go out and get some cock tonight, Tony. You are getting a little too crabby. He who hesitates, masturbates.

            1. A fantastic suggestion, and you are right. I’ve been too cooped up. Thank you.

            2. His mom said it’s passed his bedtime.

          2. You don’t.

    2. Tony, I can see you’re trying to out OBL OBL – but you’re just not good at it.

    3. I thought Trump’s appeal was he was the straightest-talking-est politician in American history– which was also what makes him so detestable. He connects with those deplorable, dirty working class the Democrats have so become to loathe these last three or four decades. Or are you conflating “straight talk” with “facts”?

      1. I am assuming that talking straight means not lying every time you open your mouth. I think you’re conflating straight talk with being a rude bigot.

    4. Um, the people she’s battling here are also Democrats, Tony. The Sanders/Cortez types are on the ascendant and dictating policy while the Feinstein/Pelosi types are on the ropes. All the 2020 contenders have embraced the new Great Leap Forward. Such realism.

  15. I watched the full version on another site (at the end of which she arranges for one of the brats to intern for her). I actually came away with a modicum of respect for the old lady.

    1. It’s a matter of picking the right opponents, you can make yourself look good if you choose rightly.

      1. Yeah, outsmarting children is very impressive.

        1. …picking the right opponents.

    2. Interesting that before they go in the little girls refers to her as Feinstein and not Senator or Mrs. Feinstein.

      1. That struck me too. Odd.

      2. Rodney Dangerfield: “These kids today, they got no respect, I tells ya. No respect.”

      3. So they went in lacking the expected decorum. This is a good start for the next generation regarding their reverence for the political class.

        1. This is a good start for the next generation regarding their reverence for the political class

          Not really. The Boomers did the same childish shit in their political activism, and look where we are now after 25 or so years of them being in charge of things.

        2. “reverence for the political class”

          It’s not about that.

  16. I love the spirit of these kids. I just wish they’d get as worked up about the national debt. Then they’d have my full support!

    1. Their parents don’t care about the national debt so their kids won’t. Their parents are a bunch of fucking lunatics. And these kids are going to grow up to be assholes just like their parents.

      1. On Facebook during the Wisconsin public union strike one of them posted that her 3-year-old daughter was stomping around the kitchen with a big grin on her face shouting “this is what democracy looks like”! The parent said she couldn’t have been more proud. And now, this is what we get.

    2. Here’s how you can help, kids: in order to cut Social Security costs, Grandma is moving into your room. You’ll be sleeping in the garage. Also, she gets your school breakfast and lunch. You’ll be getting half a cup of barley.

      1. Well you’re on the right track. Yes grandma is moving in. But it’s actually healthier for everyone, especially poor families.

  17. a “transformative” plan whose component parts, price tag, and schedule are so delusional

    It’s worth repeating everyone single time that the GND is not awful because it is delusional, it is awful because it would, if vigorously attempted, destroy the US and global economy, impoverish millions, lead to gross human rights abuses, and cause food shortages and maybe even no-shit starvation, right here in 21st century America.

    1. No, it’s awful because it is delusional. It’s heart is in the right place, but that doesn’t count for much. It is just too far overreaching and needs to be scaled back tremendously. But the current situation with the USA doing nothing will ” impoverish millions, lead to gross human rights abuses, and cause food shortages and maybe even no-shit starvation”. It may not happen in your lifetime (so you probably don’t care), but some of us do.

      1. It’s heart is not at all in the right place.

        The Modern Monetary Theory that the fiscally based on is fundamentally flawed and completely ignores basic economic principles. It would lead to hyperinflation that would destroy the value of the dollar. There are plenty of historical examples of what that ultimately looks like and it’s uniformly disastrous. Since the dollar is the world reserve currency it would wreck the global economy, too, not just the US’s.

        Renovating or replacing every building in America amounts to seizing all property in the US. It’s would be a massive violation of ownership rights. Anyone who things gentrification is bad because a bunch of outsiders come in and change the character of a neighborhood should be horrified by this aspect of the GND. And make no mistake, the poor would be the least listened to and the hardest hit. Just look at the plans that New York had to make transportation more “efficient” by paving over poor, minority neighborhoods with highways.

        And the call to change the agriculture sector from technologically driven industrialized farms to small-scale, family-owned, local farms would cause agricultural output to plummet, leading to the aforementioned food shortages.

        This doesn’t even begin to address the costs of getting rid of fossil fuels without allowing nuclear, which is the single best low-carbon energy source.

        1. “And the call to change the agriculture sector from technologically driven industrialized farms to small-scale, family-owned, local farms would cause agricultural output to plummet, leading to the aforementioned food shortages.”

          It reminds me of the “backyard forges” of Mao.

        2. Aside from the ethics, the GND simply cannot be done.

          There are 150M buildings in the US. We build 1M new ones every year. There are not enough resources, time, money, or people to build or renovate 15M every year.

          There are not enough resources, time, money, or people to build all the high speed railroads it would take to replace airliners in ten years, or to maintain and operate them.

          There are not enough resources, time, money, or people to rebuild the entire electrical grid in ten years.

          There are not enough resources, time, money, or people to replace every single vehicle in this country in ten years.

          On and on it goes. The GND could only be attempted by a dictator, like Hugo Chavez, and would destroy the country far faster than Venezuela.

          1. There are not enough resources, time, money, or people to build all the high speed railroads it would take to replace airliners in ten years, or to maintain and operate them.

            And I don’t think that high speed trains are even particularly more efficient than planes at moving people long distances. Though I guess they are easier to run on electricity, which they somehow imagine can all come from solar and wind.

          2. There are not enough resources, time, money, or people

            When we open the borders, we’ll have an unlimited supply of people. Money can simply be wished into existence in unlimited amounts. Resources? That’s what our armed forces are for. Time might be a problem…

            1. No you’re right. Bring all the troops home, spend a decade building up the military, and BAM! take over China. A few years straightening all that out and redirecting their resources, why, we’d be unstoppable.
              World Empire in less than 60 years.

      2. I’m concerned about global warming. I think it’s likely to have a net negative effect on human well being, at least in the medium term. I don’t think we can predict the magnitude with any kind of accuracy, but there is a chance that it could be very, very large. But they are almost certain to be gradual enough that we can mitigate them as we go. IMO that’s sub-optimal but it’s better than the GND, which would probably be worse than all but the most catastrophic global warming scenarios (and even then it’s a tough call).

        1. Global warming is nonsense.

          The latest apocalyptic vision is sea level rise. But remember that the blue lagoon of Capri must be entered by boat, just as it was 2,000 years ago when the Roman emperors used it as their private beach. If the sea level rose a few mm per year the lagoon would be inaccessible today.

          1. It’s not nonsense, it’s just that:
            1. Human responsibility is impossible to calculate,
            2. It’s most likely to be of net benefit to humanity, and
            3. The money proposed to be used to slow GW would be much better spent mitigating the damage that might be caused by GW.

            1. ^+, well, more than one.

            2. It’s not nonsense …

              It’s nonsense to believe that a doubling of CO2 will cause an increase of temperature in excess of the 1 degree C from doubling due to imagined positive “feedbacks”. If those “feedbacks” existed the earth would have had runaway a long time ago when the concentration of CO2 was much higher.

              The climate “feedback” hypothesis is based on a misuse of the Bode feedback model by failing to understand that the amplifier in the model adds energy to the system. Since the only source of energy in the climate systems is the sun, which is the input to the Bode model, the hypothesis ignorantly includes an active source of energy that doesn’t exist in the climate system.

    2. You gotta break some eggs to make an omelet! 🙂

  18. “We were met with a fair amount of condescension, to be perfectly honest.”

    Probably not enough.

    1. A fair amount of condescension would involve a baseball bat. These kids don’t know shit about shit but think they’re entitled to squawk their ignorance and grown-ups gotta listen? Get the fuck outta here, ya punkinheads.

  19. Wow I assumed it would be annoying, arrogant teenagers, but it is just a bunch of little kids, asking decent questions. Feinstein is unreasonably old and cranky here.

    1. They’re not asking ‘decent questions’. They’re peddling garbage. Feinstein’s just pissed that its not garbage she can see any profit peddling at this time but they want to push her to do so.

      If she thought there were power to be gained from it she’d make sure you knew she had her fingers in the wounds.

  20. Those were kids?? I admittedly just half-watched it and thought they were sass-mouth midgets and waiting for Feinstein to beat those fuggers to the floor.

    Creepy-ass midget-fucks.

    1. Shoulda reached for her revolver

    2. That was the funniest fucking thing I’ve read/ seen/ heard in weeks. OMG for reals LOL

  21. This is both hilarious and terrifying.

  22. one of the adults sighs, “We were met with a fair amount of condescension, to be perfectly honest.”

    This is kind of sad, really. That these people seriously think they deserve serious consideration. That they deserve to have someone devote precious mental resources to their idiocy.

    These aren’t activists, they are informational warfare munitions. They are weaponized memes.

    Their whole purpose is to waste cognitive resources.

      More example that emotions and not logic drive interest.

  24. What do you want to bet these kids are not immunized against the extremely contagious diseases now reemerging in the US?

    1. You mean socialism!!

  25. I really like the way Joe Biden is standing up to Russia.

    Foreign election interference is not only a serious threat to our democratic institutions, it’s a threat to our national security. Russia and other authoritarian regimes are actively seeking to try to change outcomes of our democratic elections, and we can’t allow that to happen.

    Once a Democrat is back in the White House, we can respond to the Russian threat in the way a superpower should ? with military force, if necessary.

  26. People who use kids as political props should be shunned from polite society nonstop. They have a particular kind of sickness that can’t be treated.

    1. “People who use kids as political props should be shunned from polite society nonstop. They have a particular kind of sickness that can’t be treated.”

      On 11/1016, many San Francisco grammar-school teachers marched the kids out of the classroom and down the streets, violating the requirement that parents give permission for ‘outside activities’.
      A woman who works in the salon my wife employs found out from her kids they had both marched ‘in resistance’. She’s Vietnamese, staunchly anti-commie, and if she did vote, probably voted Trump.
      Scumbag gov’t school teachers.

      1. It’s bad enough when parents do it, but public school teachers using kids for political props is absolutely outrageous.

    2. I know, what could be worse. Maybe using fetuses the same way?

      1. How do you get fetuses to march?

        1. Well, you’ve got this cross-shaped piece of wood, and it’s got all these strings attached to it…

  27. In one instance politically active kids are targeted to attempt to ruin their future and with violence since those kids dared to try to persuade others how to live their lives, but now these politically active kids telling others how to live their lives must be obeyed even if their demands are complete nonsense. ‘Merica.

    1. You won’t have to worry about the March for Life kids, they won’t get covered unless the media thinks they’ve done something wrong, and in that event, whatever the outcome of those accusations, the underlying reason the kids are marching isn’t going to get much media play.

  28. I have nothing good to say about Feinstein most of the time, but I thought she did a great job handling the situation.

    The kids, well they are kids.

    But their teacher. It is hard to have respect for someone who will indoctrinated bunch of kids and then use them as props for a political hit piece. Apparently the adults in this group were part of the opposition campaign that ran against Feinstein in the primary. So not only were their politics vapid, but they’re on extremely questionable moral ground with grabbing a bunch of impressionable young kids and teaching them what to parrot in front of a national political leader like that. And then to release a redacted version of the video trying to make Feinstein look bad…. Yeah, I have no use for these idiots.

    1. “But their teacher. It is hard to have respect for someone who will indoctrinated bunch of kids and then use them as props for a political hit piece.”

      You are too kind. They deserve to be tossed out the door into a busy street, with an explanation to the kids why they were.

  29. California has 55 congressman and 2 senators, they are represented just fine in the federal government. The electoral college is the great equalizer that stops them from imposing their will on the rest of the country, thank goodness for the framers of the constitution! This country is going to have to decide once and for all if it is going to follow the California model when it comes to governing the rest of the union. If we see the dystopian, dysfunctional shithole this state has become then the answer is a resounding NO!

    1. Unaffordable housing, massive public employee unfunded liabilities, feces and needles in the streets, the return of diseases that were thought eradicated… the uneducated rubes in flyover country don’t know what’s good for ’em and just need to turn governing the nation to the coastal elites

      1. If we were more enlightened and sophisticated, we’d have a million dollar 600 square foot condo in SF, with crap, needles and hobos on the sidewalk every day to greet us.

  34. When the monster turns on Frankenstein.

    The Democrat’s have lost control of their own propaganda machine.

  35. “I won by a million vote plurality”

    Telling your sceptics that half the voters did not vote for you is not a ringing self endorsement.

    1. As I was informed of above, that was blue on blue which may have lead to some confused folks in the booths just looking for the (D).

  36. Millennials ruin another thing: The Diamond District

    The twenty-and thirty-somethings are turning to the Internet to buy engagement rings, squeezing gem sellers in the Diamond District, where empty storefronts and booths are multiplying.

    Personally, I blame die Weiser Engel.

  37. “We were met with a fair amount of condescension, to be perfectly honest.”

    Honey, it’s hard to not be condescending to you when you’re so stupid.

  38. Man, and the adults were just as naive as the kids.

    Poor little guys, being brainwashed into socialism like that.

  39. The only one almost certain to not be here in 10 years is Feinstein.

  40. Children? Really?

  41. Not a fan of Di-fi, although she is right. The “New Green Deal” is a sham and even she knows it. These “poor” “privileged” kids live in a bubble called “The City by the Bay”. I like my title for the Bay Area better; “Caligula” by the Bay”

  42. God, this is where the country is at. Defending Feinstein.

    As for those kids, they’re being brainwashed by irresponsible adults who are scaring the shit out of them.

    The left are despicable on so many levels I’ve lost count.

  43. Remember to listen to your kids about personal and government debt, unprotected sex, and infanticide!

    A cottage industry filled with manipulated data is using children as pawns to further its dubious cultish agenda.

    The first thing parents should be doing is not encouraging this sort of impractical idealism. They should be educating their kids that ‘earf’ won’t disappear in 12 years no matter how scary stupid fucken idiots like Ocasio-Cotez say it in her unlistenable screechy voice.

    Idealism unchecked leads straight to cynicism; if not nihilism.

    TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL ASSHOLES.

  44. A columnist in the dead-tree version of the Chron had is that the GOP is in trouble since they are painting the Ds as ‘socialists’. Really.

  45. Crabby under educated children, hysterical female teachers, and a Senile female Senator from Mexifornia are a Toxic combination.

  46. Don’t environmentalists tell us having kids is not green?

    Where is that wood chipper?

    1. Only if they are not THEIR kids, or potential Democrat voters, Bruce…They only want the toothless yokels in Trump country to refrain from breeding.

  47. Since this approach only offended Feinstein I am assuming they never hoped to persuade her and this event was just to make a video as a fundraising gimmick.

    1. I heard a few weeks ago that these GND groupies intend to occupy the office of and harass every congresscritter who isn’t 100% on board with them. Hey, at least they seem to be non-partisan, and it couldn’t happen to a more deserving POS than Feinstein. Interesting that Ed Markey is the senate sponsor, he was my Congressman when I was a kid and my mom was friends with him. He makes a big deal about being for “the little guy”, who will most definitely be screwed by this, esp in Mass. where most still use oil and gas to heat their homes in the winter, and the winters are too damned cold to heat with solar/wind/unicorn farts…

  48. “I heard a few weeks ago that these GND groupies intend to occupy the office of and harass every congresscritter who isn’t 100% on board with them….”

    Above: “A columnist in the dead-tree version of the Chron had is that the GOP is in trouble since they are painting the Ds as ‘socialists’.”
    The columnist is a proggy, and, like Tony lacking in self-awareness; he accused me of ‘name calling’ (?) when I pointed out to him that he worked for a lefty rag. Probably as stupid as Tony besides; I didn’t bother with further ‘discussion’.
    Regardless, he is delusional enough to really think that the Ds are firmly on Feinstein’s side, in spite of the fact that the strongest push-back to Feinstein is from the far, far left.
    SF Ds are not noted for a grounding in reality; Tony’s idiocy would represent a step up

  49. Much as I can’t stand this woman, it is quite clear she was ambushed by these kids under control by activist parents. I smell AOC behind this planned ambush. She is the most despicable and uneducated person in congress. Her ridiculous ‘green new deal’ is the most outlandish and pathetic piece of garbage ever produced. I real hope after this ambush. the rest of the Dems do something to reign in this dunce AOC. She and her ilk have turned the Democratic party into a joke party. They are now unelectable

    1. The dem party LOVES AOC right now as she’s helping to recruit young voters for the party. If necessary they can convert them them to run of the mill proggies later after they get their votes, but for now, they see the future of the party as green nazis, gun-grabbers, and Antifa

  50. Let’s call it “The Green Leap Forward”

  51. Telling young people “I’ve been doing this for 30 years” as your response just shows how out of touch she is. That is the problem, not the solution

  52. Start making cash online working from home .I have received $18954 last month by working online from home in my spare time. I am a full time college student and just doing this job in part time just for 3 hrs a day. Everybody can get this and makes extra dollars online from home by just copy and paste this website and follow details… http://www.Mesalary.com

  53. How abusive to tell children that if we don’t do this one impossible thing that they will suffer and die.

  54. How do you like your monster now, Dr. Frankenstein?
    These kids are exactly what DiFi and her party set out to create.
    Good work, Di, really.

  55. The EC was specifically designed to address the tyranny of of a majority. It forced a less radical political agenda.

    I am no Trump fan but consider that he won a pretty substantial EC margin yet has limited ability to drive substantial change because of the checks and balances. That’s a good thing.

    He had wide, broad support across the country ( even if not by significant margins) he was totally rejected in a few very populous areas. He actually had a popular vote margin in the entire country ex only LA County, The bouroughs of Manhattan and DC.

    So 3 areas encompassing about 1000 square miles voted about 85-15 for Hillary. The rest of the country including the rest of CA, SF, New Eng, urban America voted about 52-48 for Trump. Clearly the country is not as anti trump as NYC/LA.

    she won the popular vote only by dominating 3 urban areas that are arguably far different than the rest of the country.

    I do not want NYC/LA politics ( much of which is simply driven by urban issues) to control the national agenda. Their needs and wants are no where near reflective of the needs of the rest of the country.

    That is why we want an EC , to make politics as national as possible and not just an election of the urban masses.

    We are closer to a country of 3 or 4 major urban areas with decidedly different agendas ( and often as a matter of degree rather than course) than the rest of the country.

  56. Liberals are so amusing.

  57. Ain’t karma a bitch? Talk about having liberal nonsense shoveled upon her own doorstep.

  58. Feinstein is, and always has been, a self-serving bitch. The new deal thing would be great just to transform our society a bit from the faded POS it is now, and yeah, I couldn’t care less about the “cost”.

  59. Enormously popular.

  62. The money quote is when she told them: “I got elected, if you want to do things your way, get elected” runner up in answer to ‘you work for who voted you in’: “how old are you? 16. You didn’t vote”
    I seldom agree with Sen. Feinstien, but she was in fine form that day.
    One of the few Democrats who know how to do basic math.
