Holy cats!!!!

Just a bit earlier, I wrote an article about Ben Shapiro’s proposal to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: the conservative author and podcaster offered the Democratic Party’s easy-on-the-eyes idealist $10,000 to have a debate with him on policy.


At the time of publication, I was unaware of any response. But lo and behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy:

“Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions.

And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one.”


Isn’t every request “unsolicited?” That’s why you have to make the request. But moving on…

Let’s review:

As revealed in my previous article (which you should read first, here), Ocasio-Cortez was recently asked on a podcast how she would pay for everyone to have everything while giving up everything so she could take everything and then provide everything. Her response was, in a word, insufficient.

There are other words, too. 

Anyway, so that was Alexandria’s response to the logistical query of which genie will be used to blink into existence the trillions of dollars necessary to make Christmas come every day for everyone — and I don’t mean a Little House on the Prairie kind of Christmas, where you get an apple and you’re grateful; I’m talking a Paris Hilton kind of holiday. One where every little kid has this attitude:


Anyway, Alexandria didn’t address the question. So how does she respond to an invitation to a debate? She deflects with an odd #MeToo-equivalence, weirdo answer. 

What are the “bad intentions” of wanting to have a dialogue on policy? And why does Ocasio-Cortez believe she can just shrug off the challenge?

I propose an answer to my last question —

So far, the 28-year-old modelesque champion of free-everything hasn’t gotten any pushback. Consider, if you will, this redramatization of her experience in politics thus far:

“I’m a young, hot chick!”

“I’m a Democrat!”

“I’m a socialist!”

“I’m the future of the Democratic Party!”

(to her local liberal constituents) “And everything’s gonna be FREE!”

That has been, so far, her story.

Take, for example, her reception by The Young Turks (a show where — to many — a “K” is often a “D”):

But at some point, the potential congresswoman is going to have to confront opposing ideas. Maybe even difficult challenges to her claims.

Maybe even ones that require an abacus.

I can’t offer the “democratic” socialist $10,000, but I can offer her a rack frame consisting of a series of rods with sliding beads. Maybe each round, movable variable can represent 100 trillion dollars. And she can use the apparatus to formulate a solution to all the planet’s ills. 


In fact, I’m hereby founding a charity: the Buy Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez an Abacus Project.

Would you like to be a part of history? Join with me, and — like a young girl with the revolutionary idea for all things to be given in all ways to all people by all people giving all things to be given to them — we can change the world.

What do ya say? It’s purrrrfect.

But no cat-calling.


Thank you for reading!
