Vox magazine, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the smugness of youth.

Once upon a time, I was a young man. Mind you this was years ago. As I grow older, I start to recognize that I am not the sprite twenty-something that I once was. Youth brings arrogance, self-confidence, and a lack of understanding. Whereas age brings perspective and in some cases wisdom. Vox magazine recently published an article about why it should be unconstitutional that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can’t run for president (mind you she will not be in Congress until January 1, 2019). Aside from that, ah who cares about facts anymore? Facts are racist, sexist, and phobic.

The subheading to this article published by Vox states: Immigrants, young people and everyone else should be allowed to run. I am assuming that they are okay with terrorists such as Osama bin Laden holding the highest office in our government. What has happened to my country? So, Vox is okay with mass murderers such as Jefferey Dahmer, Ted Bundy, Ed Gein and more being president. Why stop there? Let’s find the next Hitler and put them in power. I mean this is what they want right? Take peoples’ children and make them a cannibal’s next meal, as long as they give you the free stuff that you want.

Crap like this pisses me off to no end. Matthew Yglesias is the author of this piece of crap that is trying to pass as journalism. Oh, guess what….he also has a problem with old people. If anyone should be allowed to run this country, why not just line up all the old people and shoot them in the head? One and done. As his article states young is better than old when it comes to politics. Oh yeah? Age brings experience, and your college degree doesn’t prepare you for life. It gives you an education (judging from some of the politicians in office that isn’t a good thing). When life shows up to beat you down, your degree won’t lift a hand to protect you.

According to the article, Ms. Cortez should run for president because….wait for it….she has a nickname (AOC). Is that a qualification? Because if it is, I have a nickname. I also have one for Mr. Yglesias. It is this type of stupid that votes. God help us.  

I digress. Y’all take care.

Freeman out.
