Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ginned up another firestorm of controversy online Thursday when she suggested that Republicans are not familiar with, or have never had, “working class” jobs. (Tweet) The conversation started the day before.“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,” the self-proclaimed New York Democratic socialist tweeted.

Tell you what sweetie, anyone who wants free college can spend a couple of years in the military. You get your education mostly paid for, a sweet deal on a mortgage rate if you buy a house and health care for life. Worth it. Oh and BTW...if you don't want to defend your country, if that's 'beneath' you, then don't go to college if you can't afford it.

Let's see . . . what did I do for jobs when I was a youngster? Mowing yards when I was 12 up (not counting my parents' yard, which I mowed from 10 up), bus boy and dishwasher (5 to 11 in a diner) beginning when I was 14. Even an elevator operator (not the push-button kind) when I was 14. Hauling hay at 2 cents a bale from 14 to 18 (I would sometimes make $100 a week that meant we hauled and stacked 5000 bales) tractor operator and field hand for a Texas A&M extension center when I was 17; Brick jigger in a brick plant at 18 (while going to college) till 20; oilfield hand working on workover rigs from 20 to 23 (while going to college); then Baylor Law School. So, you little idiot, I'll put my work history up against your ANY day of the week. And I'm sure I left a couple out. Worthless skank.

I was a golf caddy, a shoeshine boy, a busboy (getting cheated by waitresses who were supposed to give me 10% of their tips because we handled the table setups, coffee and water,) a gas-station pump jockey, a delivery boy, bundled newspapers in the press room to go out to paperboys, and was a delivery boy. All before I joined the Army at 19 and spent a year in Viet Nam. I used my veteran's benefits to get a BA, MS, and PhD on a part-time basis while working full time and raising a family. So cry me a river. And yeah, I remember when Hershey bars were a nickle.

At the heart of AOC´s "concern" for Social Justice (whatever the hell that means, and however any such "justice" could fairly be meted out) is an insatiable lust for raw power over others, AOC is just one of many little creeps who thinks they know better than everyone else what this broken world needs. Their arrogance is breathtaking, and if she and her ilk ever gain the levers of real power in D.C., may heaven help us. In AOC´s new world a silly beret with an embroidered red star -- approved by Che himself!! -- that matches her blood-red lipstick will become a trademark, must-have fashion accessory for America´s new nomenklatura, our own new crop of reckless Bolshevik idealogues. Our only hope against this menace is the obvious fact that she and the insufferable Ilhan Omar and the vile Rashid Tlaib are obviously vicious, ignorant dimbulbs, who leave no doubt about their deep ignorance every time they open their big potty mouths. By the way, this Republican bigshot worked his way through graduate school as a full-time bank teller, an underpaid working-class job if ever there was one. I also repaid my student loan debt in full and well ahead of time. No "college loan forgiveness" for me, nor for other conservatives, please. We prefer to pay our own bills, thanks just the same.

Oh, you poor thing. You had to do a double-shift and you screwed the order up. Ever dug ditches by hand 6 feet deep with a pickax, or slept for weeks on end in a semi-truck? Picked vegetables by hand all day for minimum wage? Mowed a lawn? I enjoyed working, and don't recall ever crying about it.

I grew up helping on our farm. Starting at 14, I have cleaned toilets, worked a snack bar, babysat, and help set up a new cafeteria (no AC and covered in fiberglass). Then I held a full time job while changing to night school because my husband was in Nam, mother and grandmother sick and father dying. I've worked gardening for others, cleaned out a rat infested restaurant storage bin yet all the while paying for my BS and Masters. I and my husband came out debt free for college because we worked and used rhe GI bill.. Don't give me this entitled stuff.

I'm the oldest of nine. From a very early age, I helped with my siblings, hung diapers on the line and folded them, played with the baby etc. When I was 15 I went to work making bows for Christmas packages and worked Friday and Saturday in a department store. I got a partial scholarship and worked 20 hours a week and full time on summers to pay my way through college. I graduated, taught high school for a few years, got married (big mistake) and when I left him I had 30 dollars to my name. Went back to work and have worked ever since including my full time job and a part time job to get my daughter through college without student loans. I did it but it about killed me. My late father worked 20 hours a week after he retired until he was 90. My whole family works hard. So don't mock me Ms Cortez, you have no idea of how hard me and a lot like me have worked all our lives.

She’s wrong. Republicans would be the ones working round the clock in the back office, crunching numbers, adjusting the menu, making phone calls to suppliers and lenders and instance agents and municipal entities, etc., listening to customers and staff, overseeing quality and safety so that arrogant little college cuties can make enough money to live. If they’re found crying in the refrigerator it’s because a half-witted know-it-all left the door open and ruined the perishables at great expense. And it is telling that if AOC would care about someone’s politics if she found them crying in a refrigerator.

I am laughing at the Air Head that said this! She, and her "Woke" White Women who have been to college and now think that BLM should run the country have NO idea what kind of a Country I, the person who DOES remember the 5 Cent Candy Bar has lived. I was born in 1941. I grew up in a Country where little girls could walk to the store to get 25 cents worth of ground beef for dinner. Nobody bothered her! I went to Parochial grade school, learned Cursive, the Bible and respect for my Elders! I went to Public High School and had a Blast going to sock hops, football games and Proms. That was the 50's! A great time for Teens! Later in life I married, raised three children and loved being a Housewife and mom! I cooked, baked and kept a clean house (most of those skills were taught in Home Ec in High school and in my early years). I'm now a grandmother of 10 and Great- Grandmother of 5. I couldn't have asked for a better life. We didn't have to worry about our daughters encountering a Trans Guy in the Girls Rest Rooms any place in our Country. We didn't have to worry about our children running around with someone like AOC because they knew better than to bring home someone like her! We could go to church without worrying about being shot! We stood for our Flag! We never, ever saw any Athlete kneel during our Anthem and we sure didn't have people like "The Squad" (from other countries and who hated America) in our congress making Rules we had to live by! The world has turned upside down and the change is not for the Better. Those "Woke" young mothers are going to find their lives are not what they grew up in, but are dictated by people (like BLM and ANTIFA) who actually hate THEM and will force THEM to live in the Projects before all is said and done! AOC, BLM AND ANTIFA all want YOUR Home, businesses and money. They will stop at nothing to make that happen. I'm happy I won't be around to see the fall of this Beautiful Country!

I have a grandson who is working at Publix, since he was 15, and plans to work their through college. He'll get Florida's Bright Futures Scholarship but if he works 19 hours a week Publix will also put him through - for what is not covered already. It can be done - you don't have to pay $40-60,000/year in Boston (I can imagine what BU where AOC attended) and get a good education. A good work ethic will also serve you well too. BTW, I did the same - worked my way through college in the early 70's.

AOC has no room to lecture anyone regarding work. She may have had a job, but seriously doubt she has ever worked a real 40 hour work week in her life. Much less 50, 60, or 80. AOC has 'slacker' stamped on her forehead. Stupidity, dishonesty, and laziness go hand in hand, and AOC epitomizes that.

This girl/woman is so clueless. She won in a district that is almost totally Democratic and where almost nobody even bothers to come out to vote....they also aren't to on top of things as they don't seem to grasp what she lost them with that Amazon deal. And she actually thinks she will be popular nationally!!!!! Yet as long as she terrorizes the "regular" Dems she gets her way. So no wonder this bartender with ultra expensive clothes and a strange Econ degree from a decent college (it really says something about Boston Collge, doesn't it) thinks she is Wonder Woman.

Thanks to the bartender Amazon relocated their new corporate office and thousands of $75,000/year on average jobs. Her communist doctrine was the higher pay would raise rents. So insulting generations that made the country better before her ilk came along to destroyed it us just what she does. Painting this as something a bartender would do is an insult to 99.5% of the profession.

So many of us have similar backgrounds. I too had 5 younger siblings that I helped care for. We had daily and weekly chores, washing the dishes and cleaning the bathrooms, folding diapers, weeding the garden, taking out trash, mowing the lawn, etc. etc. I started babysitting for other people at age 12, got 25¢/hour at first. When I could get 50¢/hour I could buy my own pantyhose (a brand new invention!). I worked in a cheese plant (smelly) and clerked in a grocery store and on weekends manned a laundromat. Worked in food service all through college. Supplemented my meager teaching salary cleaning motel rooms in the summer. I could have made a lot more money detasseling corn and debeaking turkey poults but I was squeamish about some things... Dad told us that there was no job beneath us and I know he was disappointed when I shirked from those jobs. It never occurred to me that these were bad things. It was just life. And I do remember when a bottle of pop and a candy bar cost a quarter. Those kind of treats were incredibly rare, however. AOC is a twit. An insufferable self-righteous twit. Let's hope she never has children. Ramona (the Pest)

I love it when a really inexperienced young person says “ most of my adult life”. I have news for you AOC. You have not yet had an adult life. I started out at 12 with my first yawn mowing business, mowing hundreds of yards as a 75# little kid. I then took a pay cut to deliver newspapers for the next few years. I even won a trip to Cuba prior to Castro, by very hard work. I have pumped gas, worked in a plastics plant, worked on construction sites and put in 80+ weeks for a number of years. I have rebuilt a number of houses and built one from scratch with less that 300 man hours of outside help. I have also rebuilt cars and airplanes and built 10 real airplanes from scratch. Just this fall I cleared 20 acres of trees downed by hurricane Sally. I work everyday harder than any single day you ever worked in your life. I will not vote for you, Joe Biden or any other democrat the remainder of my life!

So, why is she claiming to have been a waitress, when she got elected on the claim she was a bartender? Which is it AOC? Nobody ever made fun of your job. Not ever. Many republicans work in that profession. What we mock is your stupidity, incompetence and lack of intelligence when it comes to taking proper care of your district. That is totally target worthy for mocking. Like not chasing away thousands of jobs that Amazon would have provided had YOU not chased them away with your big mouthed ignorance. Stealing money from others comes natural to you though, from your job at that bar/restaurant to stealing a chunk of your senior staff's paychecks to give to interns. Like I said, you are ignorant.

On March 11 of this year, AOC blamed "straight up racism" for the loss of customers in Chinese food restaurants. On March 15 she decided Covid19 was so dangerous, people should "eat at home" and maintain a distance of six feet apart from others, avoiding "crowded bars and restaurants." Now she's an expert on how hard restaurant work is. Or was. Restaurants are going out of business, not because of "racism" but because of mandated shutdowns and unworkable social distancing mandates. The people who once held those jobs and ran those businesses are losing their ability to support themselves and their families thanks to dictatorial Democrat politicians at all levels. It's not Donald Trump putting people out of business And it's not Donald Trump with holding relief to help restaurants on small businesses stay afloat. It's Nancy Pelosi and Democrat politicians like her, whose pay checks are never in doubt.

She is being ridiculed because she went to an obscenely expensive college and major in a fluffy discipline that prepared her to be a bartender. Being the typical democrat, she felt it was OK to steal her colleagues tips. There are plenty of republicans who are lower and middle class people who love their country and don't want it destroyed by the likes of her.

AOC worked as a bar maid in New York. That is what she did after she graduated from Boston College, with an economics degree. She had learned nothing about economics. AOC knows nothing. Even less than Nancy Pelosi!!! She had refused to share her bar tips with her kitchen staff. Her kitchen staff hated her. I would have fired Alexandra A. Cortez.

Maybe she's really talking about pelosi, waters,feinstein...and the reset of our elderly geriatric leaders in DC...:) Our govt. seems to run by the geriatric crowd. Old folks in DC just don't want to give up their power...has nothing to do with experience...it's all about power. You may not agree with AOC but at least she might be able to come up some new approaches to fixing things in the country. The over-the-hill gang we have in charge now thinks e-mail is some kind of science fiction stuff...:)

As many of you have pointed out, the normal work process for our generation was to start at the bottom and work upwards. What we have in AOC is a perfect example of her generation: we are special, we are smart, we have been pampered, and we deserve to start at the top. From barmaid to US Representative, and NOTHING in between. Only in America can someone with as little work experience (and intelligence) as AOC win a seat in the greatest representative government house on the planet - supported handsomely by American taxpayers - and then spend the majority of their time bad-mouthing the nation and its citizens. Is this a great country or what??? (someone please spank this spoiled brat).

Cortex, let me explain something. I worked my fanny off in the mining business for 45 years. And got to see some of the most unhabitable places on the planet because mines don't conveniently happen near the gravy train urban city slicker areas you are used to. When's the last time you got your panties dirty, sister?

My first job was working in a laundry. I worked 25 hrs a week while going full time to college and full time in the summer. I graduated without any loans. My husband, a Marine, turned 18 on the ship going to Viet Nam(you have to be 18 to land in a combat zone). Started a construction business at 27 worked about 60hrs a week. Don't tell us that we don't know what hard work is all about.

A small liberal arts college in Pennsylvania is offering a seminar that questions whether the idea of American progress since its founding to the present date is a myth. Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania offers a seminar as an option in its First-Year Seminars course requirement titled, “Is American Progress a Myth?” The seminar is taught by assistant professor of history Say Burgin. The syllabus for the course states: The history of the United States is often taught – and learned – as though the country evolved over time to become among the most just, fair and equitable nations in the world.

U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson’s refusal to rule out a challenge of Electoral College results in Congress led to widespread Democratic criticism on Thursday, with an incoming state representative from Madison calling the Republican “delusional scum.”Speaking to reporters in Washington on Wednesday, Johnson, R-Oshkosh, did not rule out challenging the results of the Electoral College when Congress meets on Jan. 6 to formally certify the vote. Johnson also announced that the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, which he chairs, would be holding a hearing next week on “irregularities” in the 2020 election.

I met economist and professor Walter Williams when I interviewed him while hosting a local TV show in Cleveland. We discussed a number of topics but focused on race-based preferences, aka affirmative action. Williams adamantly opposed it, still an unpopular position to take, but especially back then and especially for a Black person. He calmly explained how affirmative action causes a mismatch between a student and his or her ability to succeed on a campus more competitive than would have been the case but for the race-based preferential admission. Without racial preferences, I said, schools like Harvard might have few or no Blacks. To this Williams said, “So?”

The antifa occupiers at the autonomous zone that sprung up in Portland this week appear to be preparing for a siege. As PJ Media’s Victoria Taft reported, antifa squatters took over a house in Portland and when the government rightly evicted them, they set up an autonomous zone. On Wednesday, Portland’s police chief reported that antifa has fortified barricades, stockpiled weapons, set up armed guards, and threatened to kill police officers. Both the police chief and the mayor have urged the rebels to lay down their arms, but it appears they are refusing to do so. “We want a peaceful & safe resolution to the occupation

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday that income tax increases in the state were inevitable even if the government did dole out more coronavirus-related aid. “You probably will see tax increases in any event,” Cuomo said during his press conference. Cuomo had previously indicated tax hikes on the wealthy were on the table if the government failed to approve more funding for state and local governments. The three-term Democratic governor said on Wednesday that the consequences would be “devastating” if Congress does not agree to provide aid, involving several thousand layoffs, increased fares and tolls and government borrowing.

Minneapolis City Council on Thursday approved a controversial budget which is set to move $8million of funding from the police—despite record crime rates since the May death of George Floyd. Mayor Jacob Frey, who had threatened to veto the entire budget if the council went ahead with a plan to cap police staffing, said the vote was a defining moment for the city which was the first to be hit by anti-police protests following the death of Floyd. The city has been plagued by soaring violent crime since then—with homicide, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, theft and arson all up on last year's figures.

“It was all suspicious.” Elizabeth Forlini was a Republican Poll Challenger in Detroit the day after election day. She helped process the military ballots. She was present when the City of Detroit decided to cover the windows of the TCF Center in order to prevent the Republicans from seeing inside. When she was finally let inside, five hours after arriving, she saw that there was a huge partisan imbalance. She was made to wait, but she was going to make sure she fought for the integrity of Detroit elections. “There was not a Republican at every table. That place was loaded with hate. When we’d walk by, they’d turn the envelopes over.”
