That socialist barkeep gift that keeps on giving, and giving...

In this case, her 'Green New Deal', which includes things like
1. "Upgrade or replace every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency."
Yeah.  EVERY building.

2. "Totally overhaul transportation by massively expanding electric vehicle manufacturing, build charging stations everywhere, build out high- speed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary, create affordable public transit available to all, with goal to replace every combustion-engine vehicle."
Socialists really love trains, don't they?  Considering how Californicated has already overspent by billions on a still-not-working high-speed choo-choo(that isn't that fast anyway), you'd think the message of trying to do this nationwide would get through, but nooo.....

And it just goes on.  It was so wonderful that her staff yanked the FAQ page.  Happily, The Internets Being Forever, you can see it here.  For a little more of the display of genius in this document,
Yes, we are calling for a full transition off fossil fuels and zero greenhouse gases. Anyone who has read the resolution sees that we spell this out through a plan that calls for eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from every sector of the economy.
These people may not be just stupid, they may actually be demented.  NO fossil fuels and ZERO greenhouse gas emissions?  Not possible.  Period.  That these idiots not only think it is, but that they can do it in ten years?

And this is just freakin' gold:
We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast, but we think we can ramp up renewable manufacturing and power production, retrofit every building in America, build the smart grid, overhaul transportation and agriculture, plant lots of trees and restore our ecosystem to get to net-zero.
You may need to read that a couple of times to get the full effect, it's that amazing.  In ten years.

Throw in this:
The same way we paid for the New Deal, the 2008 bank bailout and extended quantitative easing programs.
Isn't that just so freaking cute, she thinks we've paid for those things.

One more bit of this:
Economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work
"You don't want to work?  That's ok, we'll pay your bills anyway."

Actually actively stupid.

Where will they get the copper that they need for all the electric motors that they're going to build? Where will they get the rare earth elements they need for magnets and batteries? This ignorant bartender has never solved an engineering problem in her life. It's like she thinks Dumbledore will wave his wand and make everything run with magic. Worse probably a significant portion of the US population is as dumb as she is.

A have no knowledge of her bust size, so can't comment on that.

However, as someone put it, the school that gave her an economics degree ought to be decertified.

The money problem is not really a problem. We will just have to start printing the one thousand dollar bill again, so we will be sure we have enough paper to print the trillions of dollars needed to pay for all of this free stuff. There. Problem solved. Good thing she is on the House Financial Services Committee. Otherwise, we might not know how to pay for all of her programs to save the planet.
I am thinking that there should be a test for those filing papers to run for public office. Kind of like an IQ test, with at least more than room temperature and breathing required to submit the paperwork. Because those are the only two qualifications she seems to have. Oh, I forgot, she can dance in music videos. That might have been a better career move, if not for her, certainly for us.

You may think you're kidding, but a few years ago some MoveOn asshat was insisting that we can't be short of money 'because paper and ink are cheap, we can just make more!'

Absolutely serious, and absolutely ignorant. And a bunch of others were cheering her on
