You do understand you can link it so it shows up as a video here?

Too bad AOC isn't as reasonable when it comes to politics as she is with the religion. She wrote the Green New Deal, the bill which says that we should ban all petrol vehicles in 12 years, stop using nuclear energy, and make a social safety net which will include those unwilling to work.

You do understand that you can simply click the link?

I'm not getting a link, maybe because it corrects to "https" when I copy and paste.

^^^^^^^^^^    This was the original text you posted. If You had done it right it would have shown up like this....





Difference is that I used the software icons provided by the website to make the links work and show up without having to copy and paste.

Huge difference between copying a address and making it show up in the venue so others don't have to copy it.

When you selected the "video option" be careful, in this case you should have selected "Youtube" not "Dailymotion".

The key to posting any video on any subject, is to hit "preview" before you hit submit. If you did it correctly you'll get a video. If you don't you will get a http link only, and it will not translate to a video.

Thanks for fixing that Brian.

I always remember the code as (bracket)video=youtube(end bracket)insert youtube link here(bracket)/video(endbracket)

Not gonna' lie, it's a little embarrassing watching her talk about "Christ" while lazily quoting scripture. While I love a lot of what AOC stands for, it seems to be that the whole stand your ground and draw a line in the sand tactic isn't working for us on the left. Conservatives will double down and tell us to go fuck ourselves until the end of time. They'll do it until the world burns down, and remain self-righteous all the way. So as smart as AOC is, she's completely misguided.
If you're frightened of dying, and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away. But if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the Earth.

Pick your battles. If I had my way, religion wouldn't exist. I love liberals because they represent the inclusive pluralistic nature in our species, but even with my fellow liberals, even with the likes of AOC or Martin Luther King Jr or Anne Frank, as much as I love them, I would still argue that our morality isn't coming from old mythology, but is in our evolution as individuals. 

AOC isn't misguided, wrong about the existence of a God sure. But between how she views economics and society and inclusion and pluralism, who do you want in office? Her or the orange fucktard?

I still say she's misguided. I mean, if you're giving me the very limited scope of AOC or Trump... Yeah, I pick AOC any day of the week. Hell, I'd pick damn near anyone over Trump... I'd probably pick an actual orangutan over Trump. Okay... maybe not that far. But you get the point.

I just think AOC tries very hard to be this like hard-hitting, stand your ground type of Liberal, and it just isn't working. Like I said, Republicans will double down, draw a line in the sand and tell liberals to go fuck themselves until the end of time - and they'll do so with smug fucking smirks on their faces, actually believing that they're doing the right thing, because they think they're opposing the Satanic, evil Libtards! YEEHAW! It's not gonna' work. We need to find a more sly way to defeat the Repubs, imho.

And yes, I think AOC is obviously misguided when it comes to religion, and watching her lazily quote scripture is a bit cringe-worthy. Of course, morality does not come from any sort of divine source, as much as we try to tell ourselves it does as a human race.

If I can summarize humans, we think locally, and tribally and stick to that which we grow up with, and we are familiar with. It does not mean those we disagree with are always evil.  You just agreed that you'd take AOC over Trump any day, and I agree. But when you have people like Mitt Romney, James Comey and Joe Walsh, finally seeing the light, why make enemies of them?

I think most humans are good, but misguided by the prospect of false hope of an afterlife. Unfortunately evolution does not produce offspring with adult critical thinking skills at birth. So regardless of party, liberal or conservative, and all religions have those aspects, most humans simply buy what their parents sell them at birth. 

So if we are to, as a species foster a less violent world, it isn't that we should never challenge religion, we should. But we should always know the difference between the sale of inclusion and fear, power and greed, vs someone whom simply values inclusion, but does does not agree with us.

Even though she quoted Jesus, and yes, it does bother me, she did so with the intent to include, not exclude.
