Never has a New York City congressional district sent such a vain, vacuous, self-absorbed idiot to Congress than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The woman who claims to have an economics degree knows so little about economics that she came out against mega-corporation Amazon when the etailer announced it wanted to put a second HQ near her district that would have revitalized a depressed area by bringing 25,000 good-paying jobs.
Because for an economist, this lame-brain is a much better Marxist.
Well, now that Amazon decided to go south to Virginia instead and other elected Democratic morons including Gov. Andrew Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio are slowly choking the life out of the Big Apple with their lunatic ‘COVID restrictions,’ people in the hoods of Queens and Long Island are really ticked off at “AOC” for helping to deprive them of the economic opportunity of a lifetime.
Two years after Amazon pulled its plans for Queens, residents are speaking out about the “squandered economic opportunity,” according to the New York Post, that has been made worse by the coronavirus pandemic.
“I’m watching AOC selling ‘Tax the rich’ T-shirts for $58 while businesses are leaving New York. That’s AOC’s solution. Who is going to pay $58 for a T-shirt when you’re out of a job?” local business owner Eric Benaim told the Post.
Art gallery owner Donna Drimer added, “We’re in the middle of a pandemic. People say, ‘If we only had Amazon.’ We got nothing.”
Drimer noted further, “AOC, Gianaris, [local Councilman Jimmy] Van Bramer — wake up! People are leaving. Businesses are closing.”
Gianna Cerbone, owner of a local restaurant, was a lot more explicit with her anger, saying “delusional” far-left politicians have destroyed western Queens, where Long Island City is located.
“I’m angry at the stupidity. Everybody fears AOC, who has no idea what she’s doing. Opposing Amazon benefited other communities. Imagine if AOC did something positive with her big mouth,” Cerbone told the Post. “I believed in Gianaris. Mike believed in the community until he went so far up AOC’s ass she couldn’t s**t him out.”
All of this anger is legitimate, of course, but here’s the problem: No matter how long Democrats abuse New Yorkers, they keep electing more of them.
The solution is simple: Stop doing that.
Elect leaders who understand economics and how to create opportunities.
Like Donald Trump. And Republicans.
