104. Scottish Gaelic - or Erse.

An interesting language, not originally written with Latin letters but in Ogham runes. Nothing is pronounced like it looks.

Alba gu Bràth! (pronounced ˈal̪ˠapə kə ˈpɾa) - Scotland Forever! Well, really "Scotland until judgment" since nothing on the earth lasts forever.

107. I haven't seen Outlander.

If you understand anything they're saying, then it's not Gaelic.

If you can catch a few words, then they are speaking Scots - a dialect of English that borrows Gaelic words but is mostly a kind of English.

You may have sung a song in Scots and not known it.

in their native language.. the Scottish Highlanders lapse into it sometimes.. but the show is mostly in English with their strong Scottish accents.. or in just English.. depending on who's speaking. Talking about "interesting"

Yes, I did know Auld Lang Syne was Scots.. I researched long ago. Fascinating!

54. It's puzzling

Higher min wage
Universal healthcare / MFA
Maternity leave
Justice reform
Campaign finance reform
Fairness doctrine type legislation for news media



These and many other Progressive/Liberal policies that I’ll bet a vast majority of Democrats support.
But somehow there is a disconnect that occurs in actually supporting progressive candidates who want to push hard for these policies instead of those that downplay them as some possible future ideas but not now, or worse regard them as pipe dreams

A paralysis type of fear of losing seats if they not dare support incumbent candidates who routinely vote with Republicans. Somehow missing that if they stopped bad mouthing these progressive upstarts and instead helped promote them, one by one they’d get elected.

If a candidate dares to suggest the party could work harder to fight for these things, they are blasted for it as “attacking” the party. Things they actually want too! I don’t get it

that the dislike of Rep Ocasio-Cortez is just out of the blue without merit. It isn't

When she makes statements that "in any other country, Joe Biden and I would not be in the same party"

That kind of speaks for itself

85. Exact quote, as told to New York Magazine:

“Democrats can be too big of a tent,” Ocasio-Cortez told New York Magazine in a profile published on Monday. When pressed further on what her role in congress would be under a Biden presidency she states, “Oh God. In any other country, Joe Biden and I would not be in the same party, but in America, we are.”

97. In countries with multi-party systems she's 100% correct

The nuances of policy differences would probably place them in different parties.

Of course this quote has been hashed out here ad infinitum but you have to inject it here, now, while claiming this is not an effort to "diminish the message "...

Fawning over just one of hundreds of Democrats some of whom have spent a lifetime fighting with republicans lacks gratefulness for their efforts.

The vocal ones stand on the shoulders of all the ones before them, who silently worked for the goals without desiring fame and attention. So let's hear it for ALL the Democrats who have been fighting republicans.

66. He had already planned not to run for reelection this year, so there's not

much else to do to him except say, "bye."

38. A teaching moment

This brave, powerful, brilliant young woman is teaching our country how to handle old white GOP pricks. With class, and intellect, as powerful as Every member of USA women’s soccer team taking a free kick to his old gravity abused nut sack.
DNC take note and find the anger and courage to end McConnell/trump/Barr attack on democracy. I want to see this much passion from all of them to fight for our country as AOC does.
Thank you AOC for your leadership.

Wish she was my Representative instead of my 'freedom caucus' guy, that's for sure.

55. She said "I had to throw men out of bars who acted like that" and it was perfect shade

Ted Yoho acting like a dude getting bounced from a bar.



Devastating. Hope the people in his district are listening.

65. Agreed.

He's apparently I veterinarian.

I wouldn't let that asshole near my cat.

He should be a pariah; but in a district that elected him, it's not likely.
