On Thursday evening, May 7, JetBlue used three planes--on their own, not at taxpayer expense--that were painted in themes for "I love NY," the NYPD, and the FDNY--to do a flyover over all five boroughs of New York. The airline said it was their way of honoring the city's first responders and "hometown health care heroes."

AOC tweeted her predictable but no less insane response to the public tribute. But hey, at least she was able to keep all those new Amazon jobs out of New York, so she must have nothing but the best interests of the people in mind. :???:
Nothing like a corporate PR campaign that burns jet fuel at low altitudes over vulnerable communities dying from a respiratory virus that compounds on our preexisting and disproportionate exposure to air pollution to show healthcare workers we care.
Given that, I think she should launch into a new initiative to permanently close JFK International Airport, LaGuardia, and Newark International.
Hasn't she already proposed that and more? If she had the authority to do it I have no doubts that she is dumb enough to attempt it.

AOC taunts Wall Street after comfortably winning the Democratic primary against Michelle Caruso-Cabrera.

Lord help us if this is the future of our country.

AOC’s billionaires contributed more money than her opponent’s is what she’s saying.

Apparently a Republican Yoho said bad things to AOC.

I hope everyone understands making AOC a victim isn’t helping.

:iagree: One of the reasons the country is on the brink of full blown socialism is due to the Republicans firm adherence to a platform of being nice and getting along, while the opposition has no such restrictions.

Seems a number of members on this forum believe it's ok, to disrespect women. She is and always will be woman first. What some appear to imply is it is ok, to talk to there mothers, wives, aunts, cousins and daughters this way. Sad, so sad......

There seems to be some disagreement about what was said. He claims to have not called her a name. But said something along the lines of Bovine Fecal Matter. At this point it's a he said she said situation. If he did call her the name, I agree that it violated the decorum we'd expect from representatives we've elected. But not any more than the things she's said. If he said what she claims, I don't support him in doing so.

There’s a huge difference between respecting your wife, mother, sister, daughter, etc and a woman who is a public figure and an elected official. A woman who has said and continues to say many vile, untrue and hateful things about the good people of this country who are not willing to go along with her Marxist dream for fundamentally changing our country into a socialist nightmare. A woman who will happily and without hesitation take away our rights protected by the Constitution.
Just about every woman I have ever known has exhibited qualities of being a lady. As a southern man I was taught to respect ladies. Until they cross the line of being unladylike and start spitting in your face.
AOC has never exhibited any characteristics worthy of my respect. Yes, she is a woman, but I do not respect her or her views.
I give all women the benefit of assuming they are ladies, until they demonstrate repeatedly that they are not.

Are you saying that it is unacceptable to call any woman the "B" word because we have a mom, wife, sister, or daughter? What if the woman has earned it? What if my family member has earned it and someone else calls her that? What if my family member has earned it and I caller that? Are only other women allowed to call other women that?

I'm reminded of a scene from Road House with Patrick Swayze. I don't want to quote it here due to language. I bet many of ya'll know the scene. Patrick Swayze's character responds, "Is she?"

AOC rails against statue in capital of canonized Belgian Missionary priest who dedicated his life to caring for the lepers in the leper colony in Hawaii and eventually died from the disease. It promotes another white supremacist colonial imperialist.

AOC not on speaking list at Biden's convention. Hillary is, but not Kerry or Gore.
