Continuing the “scam” theme

A member of Congress:

put together a vision of the world that we want to build for ourselves. Because when we come together and we decide that we’re going to shut down Rikers, and we’re going to turn it not into a playground for the real-estate lobby, and not into a playground for the rich, but we’re going to put it, and we’re going to transform it into a public good for all people.

If you just put 25% of Rikers Island and cover it in solar panels, we can close every toxic power plant in New York City that was built in the last two decades. And we have to always realize that these injustices aren’t abstract. Right?

Our right to clean air and our access to clean water always falls along lines of income, it falls along lines of privilege. And so what we need to make sure is that no child is getting subjected to asthma because of the family that they were born in

AOC makes a perfect introduction to continuing the scam & idiot theme with her remark about water. The guy who the US and 50 other countries recognize as the head of Venezuela can’t even take a shower there. So-called climate change is a big time economic scam of course, but it pales in comparison with what Castro, Maduro, and the like-minded have done to their countries.

Bonus fun: in a contest between a bakery and a university, which one is disgusting? Yup, you guessed correctly. Extra Extra bonus: even more fun.

    re Oberlin:

    I am given to understand they have an endowment of $886 million. They can pay, and will never miss the money.

    However, in my view, this sort of thing won’t stop until university employees are held personally liable for damages. Right now it is someone else’s money. They have no skin in the game and nothing to lose by repeating their actions. If one reads the email the Oberlin administration sent out after the verdict, it is clear they learned nothing from the trial.
