    . . . graphing the data would show a higher mean female GPA and a tighter data cluster, with fewer spectacular outliers than males at either end.
    That seems to be the case in quite a few things; the difference is in both ends of the curve. OTOH, it's hard to separate the effects of the society folks find themselves in. Damned few opportunities for female mathematical geniuses in previous centuries no matter how brilliant, Ada Lovelace notwithstanding.

    Can't fight? Tell it to these bold Kurdish women troops fighting Isis in Syria. You of course are familiar with the Kurds and their religious preferences I'm sure.



    Point of interest: these are our most effective indigenous allies in the region, the ones we'll be abandoning to their fate after ginning them up.

    It's amazing to me how some folks never weary of being factually incorrect. Don't they ever get embarrassed??

    Embarrassment infers self awareness. Much easier and lazier to just ignore inconvenient errors.

    Speaking of factual errors, and the despicable ongoing attacks... another slimebag heard from --

    https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/pat-r...080643050.html


    Televangelist Pat Robertson tried to dismiss Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) because she once worked as a bartender, then claimed she had “no particular education to speak of.”

    Ocasio-Cortez actually graduated with honors from Boston University, which is listed 42nd on U.S. News & World Report’s rankings of national universities.

    But as far as Robertson was concerned, the political positions that Ocasio-Cortez holds shouldn’t matter because her work experience and education show “she just doesn’t know what she’s talking about.”

    _____________________

    Robertson has a long and ugly track record of divisive and hateful rhetoric, including homophobic and Islamophobic comments. He’s also a die-hard supporter of President Donald Trump, to the point of declaring that the 2017 Las Vegas massacre was the result of a lack of respect for the president and the national anthem.

    OK, so you are scum - enlightening us to the "fact" that women are cowards

    care to rephrase that?

    I know any number of women whose bravery far exceeds any and all anonymous coward-punks like you.

    Someone is still responding to Sobell?

    Sobell is dead to me.
    "In 1964, the GOP ceased to be the party of Lincoln and became the party of Southern whites. As I now look back with the clarity of hindsight, I am convinced that coded racial appeals had at least as much, if not more, to do with the electoral success of the modern Republican Party than all of the domestic and foreign policy proposals crafted by well-intentioned analysts like me. This is what liberals have been saying for decades. I never believed them."-- Max Boot

    No, not crazy. Young. Passionate. Full of joy. A little bit angry... and impatient. Energetic. Righteous. Lacking decades worth of experience, but catching up fast. And sometimes less judicious in choosing her words than might be politic. Reminds me of the mob I worked with when I worked for OSPIRG.

    We could use another 20 or so like her in the House.

    I don't believe in term limits either, but I also believe we really, really need fresh blood in both houses. 200 might be high (probably is) - but a bunch of new faces would be a very good thing IMO.

    Indeed. I'd love to see enough - I suggested 20, but that was just a shot from the hip - to infuse a Progressive Caucus with both more life and more influence.

    What makes me really happy about AOC, or at least hopeful, is that unlike the vast majority of our elected representatives, she has at least a semblance of a background in science. We need far more of that in congress/the senate, as right now it seems that there are far too many people who wish to enact policy based on literal fairy tales.

    They aren't at a loss at all. They can read the bright red writing on the wall; the mention of her name or her initiatives is instant clickbait that they can monetize. Fox should be tithing their ad revenues into her re-election account.

    .


    So far she had had no tough questions and had been thrown soft balls.

    Her handlers have made sure she has only been in favorable outlets...

    The media has protected her , kept her off ANY media not sympathetic to left wing causes...

    She has not had to explain anything as of yet.

    Maybe she hasn't had any reason to be leered at by Tucker. As a baby Congressperson with the ambition to solidify her position with her peers and her constituents, she seems to be doing just fine without him. FWIW, Trump hasn't given a single interview to CNN as POTUS.

    POSTED ON FEBRUARY 15, 2019 BY JOHN HINDERAKER IN ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ
    HOW DUMB IS OCASIO-CORTEZ?
    The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday.

    The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed 25,000 new jobs–normally considered a good thing by Congressmen. But Ocasio-Cortez thought it was wonderful that her constituents would not have the option to compete for those jobs:


    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

    @AOC
    Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world.

    J. David Goodman

    @jdavidgoodman
    AMAZON CANCELS PLAN TO COME TO NEW YORK

    "After much thought and deliberation, we’ve decided not to move forward with our plans to build a headquarters for Amazon in Long Island City, Queens" - Amazon spokeswoman Jodi Seth

    26.8K people are talking about this

    I suppose if AOC’s constituents thought they would be “exploited” by Amazon they wouldn’t have to apply for jobs there. Now, they don’t have the choice.

    Whether New York should have given Amazon incentives necessary to cement the Long Island City deal is debatable. As a conservative, I might say No. So, putting aside the idiotic Marxist rhetoric, there is nothing wrong with saying adios to Amazon. This is where Ocasio-Cortez went off the rails and took a deep dive into stupidity:

    You know, I think it’s really important that we understand that we need to invest in our economy, but we need to invest in our people, and to give away $3 billion to a company that has a history of worker exploitation that’s paying below what the cost of New York City is not acceptable for us.

    Of course, New York wasn’t going to “give” Amazon anything, let alone $3 billion. The $3 billion is an estimate of foregone tax revenues. In other words, money that Amazon won’t pay New York, not money that New York will pay Amazon. This is childishly simple, but apparently too much for AOC:

    What’s great is that our economy, our local economy, is already growing. So I firmly believe that if we want to take that $3 billion dollars that we were willing to give to Amazon and invest it in our local community, we can do that. We can make those jobs. We can make 25,000 jobs. But we don’t have to give away and allow our subway system to crumble so that Amazon essentially owns a part of New York City. We can create 25,000 jobs with Mom-and-Pops; we can create 25,000 jobs with companies that are willing to come to the table, but we should not be giving away our infrastructure, our subway system, our schools, our teachers’ salaries, our firefighters’ budgets, to a company that has not shown good faith to New Yorkers.

    This is almost unbelievably stupid. Obviously, there is no “$3 billion dollars that we were willing to give to Amazon.” No one ever proposed to give money to Amazon. Those were dollars that “we” hypothetically would have refrained from collecting from Amazon. Those dollars do not exist. They are not in the possession of New York State or any other public entity. They cannot be “invest[ed] in our local community.” The absence of those funds will not “allow our subway system to crumble.” No one has ever proposed “giving away our infrastructure, our schools, our teachers’ salaries, our firefighters’ budgets,” to Amazon or anyone else.

    This isn’t complicated stuff. If Ocasio-Cortez is really this stupid, she shouldn’t have graduated from high school. She certainly shouldn’t be representing many thousands of constituents, who must assume that she is of at least average intelligence, in Congress.
