Hey Dr, We are missing your contributions on ePlaya as a member of the "loyal opposition" to the unstoppable forces of liberalism-socialism and the BRCCP!

In the population at large in the US, many are just not interested in politics, our voter turnout is OK - but could be better (I think I missed only one election in my life, a minor one), and how the media/politicians themselves communicate complex issues sucks. Then there is the Russian involvement in suppressing US democracy.

Poll after poll shows Gen Z and Millennials are very progressive.

I enjoy your pulse of conservative viewpoints on ePlaya, as well as unique BRC village leader perspectives!

As far as @AOC, she is a different generation. They have huge insecurities and stresses about how they represent themselves on social media. But they have been bathed in fire since a young age figuring it out. It's completely different than a Reagan or a Trump that had "their people" to handle communication/image the political stage.

Gracias. And I wonder: Did AOC actually take a train (no) to her inauguration in D.C. or did she fly (yes)? What a worthless hypocrite. Now that said, I wouldn't turn away naked photos of her should she be so inclined to text them to me. She is hotter than any GOP woman in Congress that I've seen in recent memory. Though that probably doesn't make her fit for public office.

Hahaha, what would @AOC camping @BDV look like? Unfortunately any bold cultural move, like participating in burning man by a public figure, brings pageview scandal-seeking media, like Councilor Hundley. That's why I believe anonymity is the 12th principle. You've got to get that VIP-concierge camp going in BDV, now that capitalism is in and communism is out for camps! And as you note, the more wealth or position, the more compromises, even Governor/Mayor Moonbeam, born of wealth, in his Zen phase.

Rightwing, sexist, delusional, vomit inducing.... Those Trump faithful resemble him more every single day. Just the simple fact that some out of his league fossil imagines someone actually alive and breathing sending the petrified dinobore nudes...

Sure, seems like his politics would be well grounded.

No, we called her a "media whore". That's like the difference between Socialist and National Socialist.

What the hell are you talking about? I'm not yukking it up, simply stating a fact. Not trying to be funny here. And my true stripes are simple: be honest, don't screw other people, be loyal and trustworthy, and be kind. Now if others don't follow those tenets, be they politicians from either party or people on this forum, that's beyond my control.

Personally I think sex work should be legal between consenting adults. So I don't believe "media whore" is derogatory. Trump has legally made a lot of money being a media whore. That doesn't mean he hasn't made other money illegally. We'll see.

As for @AOC, I think, as I said, she is representative of how her generation uses the media, and she is more self-confident doing it than most. But you will find plenty of her generation and younger making equivalent bold or outraged statements all the time on their FB. The oddity is that The Donald does the same.
