Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is famous for wanting a guaranteed income for those "unwilling to work" and well, apparently, she was thinking of herself.So despite making a $174,000 freshman congresswoman's salary (which would fill a lot of tip jars), she's complaining about the workload of a typical congresswoman who's landed some highly visible and privileged committee seats. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-N.Y., wondered if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is purposely assigning her busy work, in an effort to discourage her outward dissent and keep her away from the public eye. Ocasio-Cortez made the comments during a Tuesday interview with The New Yorker Radio Hour and said she was given strenuous

Time to step up and shut up. Give your constituents $174K of representation, or go back to popping off bottle caps of the longnecks in the cooler.

I would like to ask someone to explain what work is when it involves people who have never worked a day in their sorry lives and now free load as legislators. I'll check back later.

There needs to be a serious discussion about how some POC have come to expect to pick and choose what they work on or not work on at their jobs. That's not a racist statement. Some work very hard, others don't do squat. The problem is companies for 40 years have acquiesced because of getting called racist to those who don't work. Now, it seems that this is what is expected. AOC seems surprised that she may have to do something to earn her $174,000. If she is being treated unfairly, that is different but how do the other representatives handle their responsibilities?

AOC always thought being a Congress woman would be like a rerun of that old show "West Wing"...Remember how they always seemed to be walking fast down an endless hallway. They were discussing world affairs and reporters were sticking microphones in their faces. AOC says...you mean we actually have work to do during our six months of work we have to be in Washington.for the entire year.

So what work? Attending meetings? She whined about being on committees but what does that actually involve? I think in reality she can't stand the meeting schedule that cuts into her stage time. I doubt that she has to engage in other related tasks such as taking an assignment out of a meeting and reporting on it at the next. Now bartending I respect.

Speaking to reporters outside the White House Friday morning, President Trump said Acosta offered to resign to spare the administration from any distractions associated with the mounting scandal surrounding the lenient sentence Epstein received from then-U.S. attorney Acosta in 2008.

Megan Rapinoe, the captain of the World Cup-winning U.S. women’s soccer team, has become the latest ideological thorn lodged underneath the collective skin of conservatives. But Rapinoe kneeling during the national anthem or saying that isn't “going to the f***ing White House” seems downright inoffensive compared to her behavior over the course of the past few days. Appearing on multiple news outlets, Megan Rapinoe appeared self-centered and divisive. She criticized President Donald Trump, as expected. She made accusations of homophobia, as expected. And an adoring Rachel Maddow called for Rapinoe to run for president, as expected.

I suppose I should be thrilled that the U.S. Women's soccer team won its second world title but I confess to rooting for all their opponents during the games. I don't particularly care for soccer anyway but it was the purple-haired star player Megan Rapinoe who turned me off by spouting her disdain for any White House visit before she was even asked. Did she do that for publicity or was her Trump derangement too deeply entrenched? Stomping on the American flag even accidentally during the World Cup celebration was more proof of her unworthiness to represent our great country.

Long before Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to prostitution charges in Florida more than a decade ago, his fellow Palm Beach resident and hedge-fund manager Douglas Kass was intrigued by the local gossip about his neighbor. “I’m hearing about the parties, hearing about a guy who’s throwing money around,” says Kass, president of Seabreeze Partners Management. While stories about young girls swarming Epstein’s waterfront mansion and the sex parties he hosted for the rich and powerful were the talk of the town, Kass was more focused on how this obscure person, rumored to be managing billions of dollars, had become so wealthy without much of a track record. Kass was well-connected
