AOC Tantrums Trivialize Everything

AOC Tantrums Trivialize Everything

Our favorite walking caricature of Millennial excess, Alexandria Occasional-Cortex aka AOC, is back with public tantrums [checks tally card] numbers 5,102 and 5,103. She’d demands you know that people are entitled to “free stuff” and women and their babies are like female-dogs and their puppies.

Ever rolled your eyes and snort-laughed at the same time? I think I pulled something.

AOC on Paid Family Leave

Family leave, paid or unpaid, has a long legislative history. The federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), covering the majority of public and private employees, was passed in 1993. Since that time, individual states have used that as a template for their own legislation, including provisions for paid time off. For example, California provides six-weeks of paid time off for newborns covered under the state’s Short-term Disability Insurance program. Legislation on a federal level to move towards paid leave for all employees has been debated for years. It’s been a particular topic of interest for Ivanka Trump for years. Just today, Ivanka praised the latest legislation up for vote that will extend paid leave to federal workers as a first step to all employees.

Yet we have AOC, her spidey senses realizing there are cameras in the room, run off at the mouth with OUTRAGE!! that paid leave is only six weeks. ::::GASP!::::

“Six weeks. Do we know how long puppies are allowed to stay with their mothers after a dog has given birth?” Ocasio-Cortez asked. The congresswoman answered her own question, informing those in the hearing that it is professionally recommended that dogs be allowed to stay with their puppies for eight weeks before they’re re-homed.

“So the market has decided that women and people who give birth deserve less time with their children than a dog.”

Did anyone take li’l Alex aside and point out when puppies are “re-homed”, their momma never sees them again? Not a good look to compare new mothers to bitches, wouldn’t you say?

And what’s with this “women and people who give birth” nonsense? If you have a uterus and gestate a baby, you’re female. Someone hand AOC a biology book, for heaven’s sake.

“I think that that, at its core, has shown that the market has failed to treat people with dignity and basic respect. So when that happens, I think it’s our job as the public to redefine the rules of society and to treat people who give birth with the dignity they deserve.”

There’s a lot to debate on merits of family leave, paid or not, and the practicalities of the trade-offs in implementation. However, screeching about women as dogs kind of belies her claim to treat new moms with dignity. Just another faux outrage in service of her socialist agenda to get rid of private employers.

Occasional-Cortex Logic: Free stuff is earned, what is taxed to provide it isn’t

I hope you didn’t bruise your forehead with a spontaneous head-desk moment there. AOC is the gift that just keeps giving, but she should come with a warning about causing spontaneous instances of self-inflicted pain.

    Yeah, I said pretty much the same on her Twitter feed (aptly named, in her case), but you said it better.

    AOC is living proof of just how few brain cells are actually required to support life…

    You haven’t been practicing adequately.

    California provides six-weeks of paid time off
    No, they don’t. They force the businesses to provide pay to their employees that aren’t working. The state is providing nothing (unless you count the force required to ensure compliance). (California didn’t build that!)

    with their puppies for eight weeks
    Just be glad no one told her about “dog years”.

    the market has failed to treat people with dignity and basic respect
    No. The market treats people with ultimate respect by allowing them to make their own decisions.
    It’s progressives and other totalitarians who treat them with disrespect by assuming they can’t take care of themselves.

    it’s our job as the public to redefine the rules of society
    Except you are NOT acting as “the public”. You’re acting as the government. And, no, it’s not your job to “redefine the rules of society”. The scary part is that phrase didn’t even make her cringe – it sounds incredibly totalitarian (fascist, even!).

    We build this on our own.
    What you mean “we”, kemosabe? And get your hand out of my pocket.
    And, of course, what has AOC or her millennial sycophants ever built? Certainly no universities. No hospitals. No vast charities that support large numbers of people (like the “robber barons” of the last centuries). Heck, they wouldn’t even have built “Medicare for all” – it was those despised Boomers (and their parents) that built Medicare.

    Shorter, “OK, Millennial.”

      GWB: just a point of clarification re: California’s Short-term Disability Insurance. It is employees who pay the insurance premiums through payroll deduction – either into the state’s insurance program or into a self-funded, qualified program.

      The employer just collects the premiums. Optionally, the employer can pay it as a benefit to the employee.

      I was a supervisor for many years and had to learn a lot about FMLA, CFLA, SDI and Worker’s Comp programs.

      • GWB says:

        So the business doesn’t even have to pay it? LOL I wonder if the libs know that?
        (BTW, I would make it something entirely private and not get the state involved at all.)

        Oh, and STD covers that? Huh. I’ve got STD coverage. Wonder if I could get pregnant at my age………
        (And, yes, I love the abbreviation for that insurance, especially with it etched on all my paycheck stubs.)

    Look for the black SUV the day after AOC is sworn in as President for Life.
