Follow-up Green New Deal…

The more I read, the more unbelievable it is that ANYONE would propose something like this!

It is not hyperbole to contend that GND is likely the most ridiculous and un-American plan that’s ever been presented by an elected official to voters. Not merely because it would necessitate a communist strongman to institute, but also because the societal costs are unfathomable.

The full article is HERE, from The Federalist.

And HERE is the saved page from Occasional Cortex’s web site (hint- The internet is forever, even when you take the page down…

Here are her (and the GND) first five priorities-

  • Ban affordable energy.
  • Eliminate nuclear energy.
  • Eliminate 99 percent of cars.
  • Gut and rebuild every building in America.
  • Eliminate air travel.

Read it and weep… And they want to do this in 10 years??? Technology doesn’t exist, the money to do this doesn’t exist, the infrastructure to do this doesn’t exist, and how do you get to Hawaii, etc.?

What is even scarier, is this is NOT a hoax proposal, most of the Dems presidential candidates are standing behind this!!! They seriously want to take the USA back to a pre-industrial age…

Ramirez says it MUCH better than I can, and doesn’t even cuss once!

Follow-up Green New Deal… — 37 Comments

  1. Puthy, all right. 🙂 That cartoon would look good in the X ring, purely for color contrast. Shoulder is feeling up to impact now, so I may try it. Need some range time.

    Often Crazy really WANTS to run the Knightmares of the Round Table, and we’re supposed to take it like peasants? Don’t think so …

  2. Unbelievable! I went and read the archived page outlining the details of this “Green New Deal”. They want this done in 10 years. I would estimate that 100 years would not be sufficient to achieve their goals. Oh yeah, and every job that the GND creates will be a union job. They want to make all jobs union jobs, eventually. So, they want to turn the country into a socialist hellhole run by union enforcers. Yeah, that’s not going to happen. Not peacefully, anyway.

    • They want it complete in 10 years but say that we only have 12 years to live.

  3. The stupid is really deep here. Dammit! The range is closed today due to the weather. I guess I’ll just have to burn extra when it opens again.

  4. For one thing, it’s clear it was written by city people who are disconnected from what allows them to live in a city. And what are they going to do when a whole bunch of us refuse to replace our heating systems or give up our SUVs? Send in the military? And just what jobs are they going to retrain a small mining out in the boonies to do?

  5. Have they not seen what’s happening in France? Macron wanted to have his own Green Deal and increased the tax on diesel fuel to push people into electric cars. He got riots and mayhem instead.

  6. If anything were to kick off the “festivities”, attempting to implement that list of stupid would.

  7. AOD is the stupid twit that is supposed to take the fall for this schtuff. The DNC is using her to “soften” up the rubes. Eventually, they will come back with a “better” plan and offer it as a “real” alternative to the crazy plan. Just you wait and see; the DNC evilness is just waiting for Trump to run out his plays, then they will unleash the hounds of hell.


  8. I can’t decide if Occasional Cortex is simply trying to keep her name in the papers or if the Dems are letting her throw crap against the wall and watching to see what sticks.
    Historically the libs will propose outrageous stuff like this and then “settle” for just small bites to advance to their ultimate goal. Typical gun-grabber tactic for the past 50 years.
    Don’t poo-poo this crap just because it’s over the top.

  9. There will be far less crime if we’re all afoot (all but the privileged apparatchiki who will need luxury transportation to oversee all of us), and with the ObamaCare style death panels, if you’re over 65 with health issues, you’re Soylent Green.

    Everything will be owned by the government so there won’t be anything for you to worry about. Sit around in your cramped, cold, inner city apartment and hope that there’s free cheese in your food allotment.

    Occasional Cotex is a stalking horse for the New Left (was communists) to see what ideas will stick.

    Under the new Green Deal, the food will grow itself and will get itself to market. No need for human intervention. And face it, who would want to toil in the fields?

    • With my health issues I might end up as Soylent Green, but not before I go open season on politicians. Might be fun to test out my distance shooting with the old 30-06. 🙂

  10. Almost Occasionally Cerebral was let out of the nut house a little too early but she fits just right in the new Democrat Party. I say let her keep opening her big stupid mouth and say her most unfiltered stupid stuff. This will only decrease the rolls of the democrat party. I see one term for her. I know the conservative talk shows are having an absolute field day this this person.

    The GND jobs program! Guarantee income for those unable or unwilling to work? The unwilling to work job roles will grow very quickly to be very massive. I can see the advertisement now.

    “Come join us for the future. Join the project. Jobs now available. The job description is “Those unwilling to work”. Yes, that is right. “Those unwilling to work”! No experience necessary. You don’t have to know how to work because work is not a requirement. You will have a guaranteed income, free food, free shelter and all because you are “unwilling to work” Join us now for an absolutely nonproductive future.”

    So then who will be willing to do the work needed to complete this project.

    OK pass this $#!%, now lets see you enforce it.

    Rope and lamp post anyone?

  11. All I have to say is that AOC makes brunettes look bad.

    “Access to nature for all?” Is she aware of the National Park System? Or the multiple parks in every town, village, and city across the country? Talk about someone who obviously has not a single clue about how a vast majority of folks in this country live…truly a cityiot…bet she wouldn’t know nature if it bit her on the butt.

    Guess she isn’t aware that the USA produces food to feed the world, and, that every “ruler” of every country in the world when faced with serious medical issues, want to come here for medical care.

    I think she is the best example of where not to send your kids to higher education that could be found.

    Wow…talk about wanting to transform the country!!! We have been there and done that…how did that work out???
    Ten year plans sounds like wanting to be a clone of the USSR, or China! She needs to go tour those countries, and Cuba and then go to Venezuela to realize we have a pretty damn good thing going right here, and that folks need to quit trying to fix something that isn’t broken.

  12. “If you can’t say anything nice about someone, don’t say anything.” So regarding Ocrazy-oh Cortexapham:

  13. Drink two cases of your favorite beer and go to bed.

    No, on second thought, DON’T do that “two cases” part.

  14. I thought this was a hoax, then I read Craig’s comment:

    I can’t decide if Occasional Cortex is simply trying to keep her name in the papers or if the Dems are letting her throw crap against the wall and watching to see what sticks. Historically the libs will propose outrageous stuff like this and then “settle” for just small bites to advance to their ultimate goal. Typical gun-grabber tactic for the past 50 years.

    Shaving this incredibly preposterous plan with Ockham’s razor, I’m willing to believe that Craig nailed it. Many of the Moonbats are not in their right mind (there may be one or two somewhere – just not here) and will buy into this nonsense the second it gets SJW approval. Their handlers are neither crazy nor stupid. The handlers will see this for what it is – an experiment to measure tolerance and support for these ridiculous notions by the great unwashed. Given that measure, the handlers will know what measures to advance and which ones to officially shelve.

    Then I found this part:

    Free money.
    The GND aims to provide, and I am not making this up, “economic security” for all who are “unable or unwilling” to work. Just to reiterate: if you’re unwilling to work, the rest of us will have your back.

    Okay, see, with money I can buy bourbon and pot, which will allow me to get all screwed up and play with my gun collection while driving my Tesla Roadster (0 – 60 in 1.9 seconds, 0 to 100 in 4.2 seconds, top speed 250 miles per hour, range 620 miles). See you in the funny papers!

  15. All- Thanks for the comments, and I think Craig and Steve may be right. This is a ‘first shot’, and a ‘better’ plan will be proposed, which only takes part of our rights… sigh

    Posted from my iPhone.

  16. You forgot one of the smallest, but most heinous points of the GND. Getting rid of factory farms and bringing back small family farms only. With only non-GMO food.

    She’s gone Full Khmer Rouge. You never go Full Khmer Rouge…

    • Let me elaborate, since my mind took a ‘Great Leap Forward.’

      Why Khmer Rouge?

      Well, by the elimination of fossil fuel powered equipment, the GND is basically calling for muscle powered equipment (really, farms run on diesel and natural gas and some even run on methane collected from their animals…)

      Cows make too many farts, so no oxen. Well, horses fart a lot too. So they’re right out. (Actually, any vegetarian is a farting machine, due to the inefficiencies of digesting plants – except for goats. Goats are weird.)

      Which leaves us with… Human Powered only Farming. Which is good because you’ll have all those people out of work from the aviation and farming (remember, no meat..) and fossil fuel industries. But human only powered farming is inefficient, so there will be shortages (for the people in the city.) So cut the rations of the farm workers and make them work more for less to feed the cities…

      Thus… Khmer Rouge.

      Not to mention the best lands for solar and wind farms are… Farms. You either raise food or power, not both. (especially if you’ve ever seen the dead zones around wind farms.)

      As a last note, really, what is this fascination by socialists with TRAINS? I mean, the Italian socialists got them running on time. And the German and French socialists used them to move large numbers of people around…

      • Make the America into Cambodia under Pol Pot — what a slogan.

      • Make the America into Cambodia under Pol Pot — what a slogan. If there isn’t enough food, kill people until there is.

        • It does seem to be the solution they’re talking about. Why else would they need so many trains?

  17. Beans- I hadn’t thought about that, but you’re right! Sigh… Re the Italian trains, they don’t run on time anymore… Just sayin…

    • But Italy isn’t as socialist as it was under Mussolini, so it has that going for it.

  18. Watermelons. Green on the outside, communist red on the inside.

    Some things never change.

  19. AOC saw the The Hunger Games series and wants to fudamentally transform this nation into the one in that dystopian fiction. Naturally she would be amongst the ruling class and there would be no revolution.

    • I’ve met some young people who see “The Hunger Games” as a warning. They actually voted for Trump in 2016.

      But, yeah. It’s all right as long as you’re living in Capital.

      I also think she read “Fallen Angels” and got the wrong message from that book.

  20. I like the fact that they are admitting, without realizing it, what the purpose of the original New Deal was – while purporting to be a way to help everyone through a time of hardship, it was FDR’s contribution to the initial stages of turning the USA into a government dependent country and starting to let the people taste the fruits of socialism. Otherwise, why would they incorporate the New Deal term into their bill’s moniker?

  21. The only good Commie is … well, you know.
    Off to sharpen bayonets and load magazines AND clips.

  22. I have as a serious policy counter-proposal, calculating how many people that congressional district will support on solar/wind energy budget, and killing non-Republicans in that district until the distract is populated below energy carrying capacity. Other than that, I’ll repost this from ATH.

    Alt-Right Federal-Aid Highway Act

    (My apologies to the Alt-Right, I had to take great liberties impugning your sanity and the soundness of alt-right and conservative policies in order to capture parallels with the Green New Deal.)

    Send flamethrower teams to deal with illegals at the border in order to develop new missile defense technologies.

    Cutting off all noses to spite faces, and own the libs.

    Zero taxes, to buy off the establishment RINOs, and obtain their full, complete, and enthusiastic support.

    Complete extermination of non-Jews in Middle East North Africa, because the Israelis are too pussy to do what they ought.

    Henceforth, only land currently (2/10/19) planted with winter wheat will be cultivated. All other farms to be
    burned, complete with farmers. We will only grow winter wheat. This is the best most efficient way to solve world hunger.

    Eliminating all entitlement spending to cure cancer.

    Mass murder of all homeless, criminals and immigrants to be rolled out with Blokhin Style ‘Gangnam Style’ parody music video.

    Original Nancy Drew to be replaced by horrific bowdlerized version, to stop the madness of third wave intersectional feminism.

    Elimination of public schooling and organized mass schooling, in order to wipe out child molestation during our lifetimes.

    You didn’t see anything stupid here. You are stupid. If you can prove it is stupid, it wasn’t written here, you forger. Liar, liar, pants on fire. I’m rubber, you’re glue, anything you say bounces off me and sticks to you. Poopy head.

  23. YES Nitro-Cellulose Therapy the cure for all ills. Unfortunately due to the weather here it is not possible still below zero and to top it off I couldn’t anyway as I hurt my shooting hand and shoulder. I will be ready in the spring though. I need more ammo and magazines.
