Our Betters Are Better Because, Well, They’re Better

How Democrats define themselves, AOC edition:


Ocasio-Cortez: Federal tipped minimum wage of $2.13 is “indentured  servitude.”OMG don’t ask me to do anything else! Can’t you see I’ve got my hands full!?

Arguably she hasn’t even started her “adult life” yet but that doesn’t stop her from whining on:

"Republicans like to make fun of the fact that I used to be a waitress, but we all know if they ever had to do a double they'd be the ones found crying in the walk-in fridge halfway through their first shift bc someone yelled at them for bringing seltzer when they wanted sparkling."

I guess working a double shift tending to the drinking needs of others makes her a hero of sorts, at least in her own mind. Others seem to have taken umbrage with her asinine tweet. They cited their own hard jobs  – from chimney sweep to farm hand to combat soldier – that might rival her own brave days of hiding out in the walk-in cooler after dodging flying wine corks and harsh words from unhappy customers.

“Between working my family’s hog farm, construction jobs with my dad, and the biscuit line at Hardee’s — not to mention running convoys in a combat zone — I can promise you this conservative Senator knows exactly what it’s like to work a physically demanding job.” – Joni Earnst

Ryan Saavedra may have summed it up best:

Myself, I’m just impressed with how quickly she was capable of acquiring all the requisite skills required of a Congressional Rep these days:

ImageMy she looks comfortable in that nice leather chair

complete hypocrisy, unbridled self-absorption and promotion. Oh, and of course the most important skill set of all: how to make a buck on the side from the very capitalistic system you seek to destroy.
