    Unfortunately, I disagree with her. When one puts themselves in the limelight, one is susceptible to personal scrutiny, and attacks. She sounds like trump, lol.

    I don't care enough about Palin to fact check whether or not she went to college. However, college is not a metric to determine a person's intelligence, as many institutions have devolved into diploma mills, and there are plenty of morons out there with college degrees (like AOC). This post really shows the left's modern attitude toward those who've never gotten to college. Long gone are the days when the Democrat party stood up for those who didn't succeed in college, or never had the opportunity to make it there in the first place. Today, they sneer at them from high atop their ivory towers.

    I am not going to lie, AOC is an attractive woman, horse teeth, bird brains and all.

    Venezuela was an example of tried and failed socialism. Even if it makes it as far as a 80% socialist state and it still fails, it's most likely due to the result of command economics of socialism. I'm gonna keep talking about Venezeuela until the whole "Socialism will work if we try it again" mentality finally dies off.

    She's one of the few in Congress actually doing her job.

    If you dont recognize AOC's intelligience, you arent paying attention.

    Her only drawback as far as I can see is that she's too emotionally involved in her work. I mean, she keeps it cool...but I think things smart a little bit for her, too, when others don't understand.

    In other words, you're going to repeat your demonstrably fallacious argument until hell freezes over? Knock yourself out, but one example probably won't be enough to discredit the idea. You might try holding your breath until you turn blue.

    Most of the 'criticism' in here lacks serious depth. Which leads to the obvious conclusion: she must be quite good.

    They’re terrified of her. It’s humorous and sad.

    I like how I can almost see the veins pop on the foreheads of the people who want to see nothing in her :D

    I don't disagree that college isn't for everyone. However, I think what separates people who want to go to college from those that don't, is that they want to learn and question as many things as possible. Non college attendees are more likely to go with the flow, and not question authority.
    I feel that everyone should at least try for a college education. If after a period of time they feel it's not for them, that's fine.

    Pepe's mere existence triggers the NPC left. That's why he's so awesome!

    Like clockwork, anything they don't like becomes hate speech.

    That's a seriously limited conclusion for a very large sample of people. There are plenty of reasons people don't choose college and others wash out. College requires quite a bit of conformity these days, right down to your point of view (if it's the "wrong" point of view, you can be assaulted or set upon by slanted "professors" who readily abuse their authority to push their opinion). But this is how it has become over the last couple of decades.

    When I was in college all I had to conform to was the class schedule. Since I was paying for it, I was also working my ass off on different jobs. Mostly factory work, or retail sales. In both places I was surrounded by people who didn't go to college. Some were stupid, sure (though they had good herb), but others were self-driven entrepreneurs who had already started their plans for the future. For others it was about control. Becoming a store manager without a degree is easier than becoming a store manager with an engineering degree.

    This statement you've made really captures the message of the elites on the subject of "flyover country" Americans. You want a real treat, wait till you discover that your millionaire boss, is a complete fucking idiot who doesn't know Aesop from Asphalt, not a moment of classical exposure. Just another old money crony who didn't "waste" money on college.

    I'm more inclined to think there's far more diversity of opinions and experiences among people who didn't take the college path than so may leftists want to consider (or admit). It seems for them that non-college people MUST be made to seem like extras from Deliverance, At all cost!

    dude, like I said college isn't for everybody. I started working in a factory when I was fifteen, and I also worked retail. The only plan that people who work retail have is to get out of working retail.
    Keep up the good work on stereotyping.

    It's not just that it isn't for everybody. Some people, due to circumstances, never have the opportunity, despite however intelligent they may be.

    The working class isn't solely reserved for dullards. I'm working class. I never went to college. I was in all of the gifted classes and had a genius level IQ and scored high on my ACTs (99th percentile in English,) but I had no role models growing up, and frankly didn't feel like trying to fit in with the status quo by going to college and learning how to be a part of their well-adjusted world. I don't particularly respect college graduates either, due to the way they see the working class.

    The working class does not just accept what they're told and move "with the flow" like droning peons. Just look at the punk rock movement of the seventies if you want an example of that. The only difference between the working class and the middle/upper echelon is that no one listens to us because we don't have college degrees. Regardless of your intelligence, you put in the work to study this shit, so you're the ones people listen to. Like I said, regardless of your intelligence. And any idiot can go to college, just as any idiot be a bricklayer.
