Ep. 183 Contra Ocasio-Cortez

6 April 2019     |     Tom Woods     |     9

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the controversial left-wing member of Congress, got into a Twitter war when she observed that a mere croissant at La Guardia Airport goes for $7, yet some people think $15 is too much to ask for a whole hour of human labor!

She started it, we finish it.

    I think Dan Bongino deserves a special shout out for his coverage of Mueller. He was making a very good case exposing the house of cards the whole thing was.

      We never put them on YouTube. That was someone else. They’re designed to be listened to on a podcatcher. 🙂

    For a moment, I thought the word “avoision” was made up.

      Etymology goes back to the 1970s, declining rapidly since then. More of a fad than a “real” word.

        We really meant it as a tribute to Kent Brockman on the Simpsons.
