AOC’s Green New Deal is the Nuttiest Bill Ever Proposed in Congress
Senator Richard Mentor Johnson of Kentucky, a Democrat, fought for two years to try to pass a bill that was based on the hottest scientific consensus of the day. Johnson was a quirky Senator who had a long and interesting career in public service, to say the least.
During his military days, he was personally credited with killing the Shawnee chief Tecumseh in Canada’s “Battle of the Thames.”
Johnson was eventually elected vice president under Martin Van Buren, a job that Johnson walked away from for nine months to go manage his tavern in Kentucky (he went back to being vice president once the tavern was straightened out).
Sadly, we haven’t been able to uncover the full text of the bill that Senator Johnson fought to pass in 1822 and ’23. The congressional record online has only posted bills dating back to 1979.
The big scientific consensus that Johnson was excited about was the “hollow earth” theory. There’s still a monument to the hollow earth theory standing in Ohio.
It’s a small obelisk with a donut-shaped rock on top of it to represent the hollow earth. Caught up in the euphoria of this scientific consensus, the Kentucky Democrat proposed a bill for the US government to fund a military expedition to invade hollow earth, conquer all the people living there and claim the lands for America.
It failed miserably.
This was the perhaps the nuttiest piece of legislation ever proposed by a sitting Member of Congress… until Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) came along!
The New York Congresswoman unveiled a fact sheet for her much-touted “Green New Deal” this past week on her website.
Presidential candidates including Cory “Spartacus” Booker, Pocahontas Warren, Beto O’Rourke, Kirsten Gillibrand, Julian Castro and Willie Brown’s mistress all endorsed the plan immediately and enthusiastically.
Unfortunately, AOC took the page down from her website within a few hours when it was met with howls of laughter and near-universal mockery from people who are not running for president as Democrats.
The 14-page fact sheet from AOC reads like a wish list put together by a little kid who has been indoctrinated in nothing but global warming and socialism and is now trying to impress his liberal teacher with his woke zeal.
To be honest, it’s difficult to even read the full document. We can’t stop laughing about the farting cows section. She wants to ban all airplanes and all farting cows!
AOC gravely states in the document, “We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.”
Our sides are hurting! Can’t stop laughing!
The farting cow fallacy of the whole global warming myth is based on a book by a vegan nutcase from the 1990s, which claimed that a massive source of “greenhouse gases” comes from cow flatulence. So now, AOC wants to ban all farting cows.
You know who might not want to ban all farting cows?
People who eat meat, for starters. Every cattle ranch that raises beef and dairy cattle might be another demographic that would not like to see farting cows banned. Plus, every small hobby farm and family farm that has a milk cow because they like to have fresh whole milk.
The only way to actually “get rid of all farting cows,” as the coddled New York socialist AOC wishes, would be to cause the extermination of the entire bovine species.
Democrats are now on board with species extinction. Good to know! The folks who worship cows in India probably won’t be too happy about the Green New Deal, either.
The Green New Deal also calls for banning all airplanes. How do we replace travel in this nutty plan, which is a big part of how we’re able to transfer things like… oh, you know, cow meat and other foods from Point A to Point B so that people in AOC’s hometown won’t starve to death?
By building high-speed railroads, according to AOC! This will even involve railroads across the oceans, preferably within 10 years.
AOC’s Green New Deal even calls for free medical care, free college tuition and free money for people who are “unwilling to work.”
And every Democrat running for president so far has endorsed the plan! Can’t. Stop. Laughing.
Richard Mentor Johnson can finally rest easy in his grave, because the Green New Deal is now officially the most ridiculous bill ever proposed in earnest by a Democrat.
