(TRO FIRE) – Now that we have an official Green New Deal rollout, everyone is out there telling us that this plan is just too expensive to ever become a reality. And yes, the costs are high, but nearly as high as the costs of doing nothing. Hundreds of thousands of jobs will be created, the economy would be surge, and more importantly, we might be able to stave off disaster.
There are very few phrases or words that really just anger me upon instantly hearing them. One of those words is actually geopolitical. Geopolitical, by the way, is a word that people who don't know what they're talking about, it's a word that they use to seem smarter using a compound word there, when in fact geopolitical is essentially meaningless in most instances. Uh, but that's beside the point. That's just a little about me. I thought you should know. The real thing that bugs me is when I hear people say how you gonna pay for it, and that is all we have heard for the last two weeks with regards to the green new deal. How are you going to pay for it? That's an ambitious plan, but how are you going to pay for it? This isn't realistic. Even the Huffington Post wrote an article talking about, first of all, it's never going to get past, which, okay, yeah, it's never going to get passed.
