WE’RE SCREWED!

StudyGreenNewDealCosts-1024x535

It seems that the Democrat Party is at it again.  During the depression, FDR came up with a New Deal.  Today the deal is Green.  The Green New Deal, is being promoted by a young congresswoman only a few years older than my grandson.  The champion for the cause is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, (aka-AOC) a twenty nine year old, shining new star in the House of Representatives.

A few years back a man who ran for president, Senator Al Gore, began a crusade against Global Warming – which has since become  Climate Change – I assume to cover his back side.  Al Gore was a year younger than AOC  when he became a member of congress in 1977.  Early in his career he was interested in technology issues and in the beginning stages of the Internet, he went to bat for it, explaining how technology would benefit high speed computing and communication.  He went on to become President Clinton’s Vice President and ran for President himself in the 2000 election, which was won by George Bush.

So this green stuff isn’t new.  It’s been an issue for over 40 years.  Each of those years, we’ve been fed information on how our planet is going to self destruct in twelve years or so. Actually it’s newer than that.  When sin entered the world, so did weeds, unusual weather situations, climate change and the demise of our planet as it was intended to be.

Now I would imagine that Mr. Gore and Ms. AOC believe that the earth is billions of years old.  If it were as old as most environmentalists believe, it should have disintegrated billions of years ago.

AOC has lots of opinions on how we can change things.  Recently, in an interview from her kitchen, on Instagram Live, she said,  “There’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult, and it does lead, I think, young people, to have a legitimate question: Is it OK to still have children?  Not just financially because people are graduating with 20, 30, $100,000 worth of student loan debt, and so they can’t even afford to have kids and a house, but also just this basic moral question, like, ‘what do we do?’” she continued. “And even if you don’t have kids, there are still children here in the world and we have a moral obligation to leave a better world for them.”

The Green New Deal would cost up to $94.4 trillion, or over $600,000 per household in the United States, according to a new study.

Ms. Cortez is a millennial, a member of the DSA (Democratic Socialists of America), the youngest female ever to become a member of congress.  Her platforms include Medicare For All, tuition-free higher public education and the Green New Deal.  All stunning tax raising ideas which will further put a burden on the middle class.  She also comes from the state of New York, where full term abortion was recently written into law.

I have opinions on this whole mess, but I’m not a politician. I’m not with the news media.  I’m just an old grandmother who has seen ideas come and go – philosophies rise and fall – and watched as my country has melted into a sea of hatred, political correctness, tolerance for everything, not knowing what gender anyone is anymore, and it’s become unrecognizable.

I’m happy to see young people taking an interest in our future as a nation.  They are the future and it’s really in their hands.  However, I believe we’ve forgotten how to depend on the One who created this place we live.  Job knew all about destruction in his world, yet he continued to hold to the fact that God was in control.

“Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.   Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering. He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.”  Job 26:5-7

I have one bit of advice for Ms. AOC.  “It’s not easy being green. ”  Kermit, the Frog

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Knowing the science behind what they are touting, it is sketchy, at best. They have observations, but no concrete science to explain what they’ve observed, just guesses. They reported a week or so ago that Saturn’s rings, made of ice, are melting and raining down onto the planet. Scientists said this is naturally occurring radiation from the sun. Why is that natural, and if it is, why did it not happen “millions” of years ago. But our heating up has nothing to do with anything natural. Our climate change is all man-made. I could have told them that before they took their thermometer outside. We sinned. The world is broken. We cannot fix that.

        But a “new” one. I don’t know if He intends to fix this one and make it “new” or everything, including the universe will be new. It is rather exciting just thinking about it.

        Of course, the climate change is the Democrat’s money laundering scam (but the numbers do show an increase in temperature world wide). They scare the masses, then hand millions to universities with instructions that their research has to back up the scare tactics. And of course the media gets their cut. They love negative stories that scare people – all for a big pot of cash.

        It’s been that way forever. What scares me is that the millennial s are latching on To socialism. They’re being taught this in middle schools . Heaven help America.

        I ‘fought’ the Cold War in Germany, and my grandchildren are taught that we can just print more free money – until they try to get a job. I heard a conversation between Chad Prather and Sara Gonzalez the other day (both on BlazeTV these days) who said to read a sufficiently dated textbook to find out Socialism does not work, except for those in charge. But those middle school teachers have student loans and Bernie promised…

  3. Amen sister!!! Preach it!!!!
    Meaning you hit the nail on the head…and knocked that ball clean out of the park.

    AOC drives me crazy when she talks with those giant wide eyes and toothy smile as she espouses on that which she truly knows not—
    but as a darling millennial, she has the look and the chutzpah.

    The other day she was holding a mic and telling her minions and others about healthcare and green deals while admonishing anyone listening with her head cocked in defiance…”You think you can do it? You think you’ve got it figured out? Well, no…no you don’t ….so I’m the boss”

    Well, I can tell this child that no, she is not my boss and no she does not have it figured out.

    Her idea as to how to pay for things, along with a few of the growing list of Democrats running for election, is vague if even ever addressed—
    It’s that ‘just a print more money ‘mentality or…. well simply take it from all the rich people—but the rich people’s money eventually runs out and will never come near to paying for a darn thing.

    This notion of I want it but I don’t want to work for or earn it—
    It’s a welfare mentality of those who really don’t need nor qualify for welfare and in turn, do a tremendous disservice to those who do need welfare…they want free education, free healthcare, free this and free that…but last I checked, ain’t nothing in this world free—

    But—

    and here it is…

    our Salvation.

    Oh that did come at a tremendous cost—a cos that In doubt AOC and her minions and party followers simply don’t “get”…. and yet the debt was paid in full…. and we are now truly free…but as to what sort of “free” I’m talking about, I fear they have not a clue….

    Excellent post my friend!!!
