First topic message reminder :

My San Antonio:

Gratitude for New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is pouring in from San Antonio for her work in helping Texas through the statewide crisis left behind by winter storm Uri (yes, the storm had a name).

AOC launched relief efforts on Thursday, selecting nine groups to benefit from the fundraiser. By Friday, the fund reached more than $2 million. She shared with supporters that she will visit Houston on Friday to help distribute aid.

The organizations AOC selected to receive the support are: Corazon Ministries, ECHO (Ending Community Homelessness Coalition), The Bridge Homeless Recovery Center, Feeding Texas, Houston Food Bank, North Texas Food Bank, Central Texas Food Bank, Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley and Family Eldercare, according to the donation page.

San Antonians thanked Ocasio-Cortez for the help on Twitter. Some invited her to visit San Antonio during Fiesta or pickup a breakfast taco.

You've got such a hard-on for AOC.  She must be Wonder Woman.

Did I start this thread?

I'll admit, she has nice tits.  

She is cute...but I like her pugnacity most of all. Twisted Evil

I'm cool with her pugnacity too.

I've said numerous times that she's good and effective.

So was Che.

Ernesto Che Guavera, a brilliant physician in his own right, said: "The true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love." That sounds like AOC.

And some times that love is dispensed out of the barrel of an AK-47.

I think he was a man of great compassion. AOC is too ... look at what she just did for Texas.

I think the libertarian philosophy is that the only action with merit is action taken for profit.

Otherwise you're just trying to make yourself look good, or you're serving an ulterior motive, I suppose.

I think people do all sorts of things for all sorts of reasons. Many of which are simply to serve their fellow man.

If Libertarianism was about profit and greed, you'd see more wealthy flocking to the idea.
