So the DC Metro, in AOC's opinion, is way better than the NYC subway despite WMATA closing sections for weeks at a time and delays, to the point the people of DC avoid it due to unreliability. Not to mention NYC has a population of 8 milion plus while DC barely breaks 700,000. The NYC subway runs 24/7 while the DC Metro doesn't. Oh and it's brand spanking new while the NYC subway system is over a hundred years old.

I bitch about the subway too and the Mexico City subway system is pretty cool too except it doesn't run all night and there are separate cars for men and ladies at night and it's in Mexico City. Say what you will about the subway but it runs all night, doesn't have zoned fares and is probably the most reliable transit system in the USA given that it moves millions every day.

Maybe this thot should worry less about DC and more about NYC, the Bronx and whatever idiotic section of Queens voted for her.
Counterpoint : You're (probably) less likely to be murdered on a DC subway.

"Still, her weekend DC trip seemed like a breeze compared to the city’s system, saying “taking the train on a Sunday without a delay or track change or 1000 people in the car seems like a minor miracle to me.”

What a dumb cunt, she said this based off a SUNDAY? DC is practically a graveyard outside of business hours, there's so little to do that people would rather live hours away and commute than bother being in DC itself. NYC is one of the biggest cities in the world and people depend on the subway to get around so yes, it will almost never be empty. Did a NYC congresswoman actually go on record complaining that there are too many people on the train in NYC? How can she consistently be so stupid?

I've never used NYC's subway because Manhattan is so fucking tiny there's really no point to it as a tourist, but I was really unimpressed with DC's subway system. Its expensive. The lines fucking zig zag so if you want to go, say due EAST, you have to switch lines. And the connections are inconvenient (mainly because of all the zig zagging, so you end up having to go three extra stops to make a connection than you would if the lines ran straight).

Her entire complaint shows that she doesn't understand why people use public transit. I've lived in a city with one of the biggest and most expansive public transit systems in the world (and rapidly growing to this day) and people who have to commute generally think of things more like:
  • how many cheap neighborhoods does this service so I don't have to pay downtown city housing costs?
  • how many different ways are there to get around the city when i need to run errands?
  • how often does it get me to work on time?
  • what is the cheapest monthly bill if i take it every day for work?
  • can i read a book or watch a movie on my phone while i'm stuffed in a car/bus for over an hour?
  • what is the likelihood of me getting robbed?
  • how much human excrement covers the seats on the average day?
I really don't think a commuter is rreally putting "what is sunday traffic like?" at the top of their concerns. NYC may be a dirty transit system, but that's because the entire city is disgustingly dirty. SF had a decent transit system until the volume of homeless people shitting up the machinery literally takes parts of the system out of service, but in general anything "public" in SF is going to be covered in human excrement pretty quickly. Chicago can't figure out how to fund anything but the transit is reliable as long as you know how not to get shot in chicago.

I don't know anyone who likes DC's transit- not visitors, not locals. This dummy is putting champaign socialism under the limelight better than anything Fox news could have designed.

She does have a point, the DC metro is pretty good.

But of course the DC metro runs better than the NYC metro, it's mostly yuppies from the suburbs taking it in and out. You don't nearly have as many vagrants hanging around it as you do in NYC. DC's going to pump an absolutely stupid amount of money into it as a result.

I lived in Mexico City for a year and their subway is comparable to NYC's due to the sprawling size of the place and its a much more modern system that also moves millions a day. One station cut through an old Aztec pyramid ruin so it was enclosed in plexiglass so you could see archaeologists excavating it and everyone got to their destination. It was heavily subsidized and was extremely affordable and surprisingly clean. But at night men and women were separated due to the men getting grabby with women and it didn't run all night. Things may have changed since this was nearly 20 years ago but if NYC put as much into the subway as Mexico City does with theirs ours would be top of the line.

But Mexico City has tons of very poor people from all over the country pouring into the capital as well as foreign business people so they need to keep it clean and running. The MTA just doesn't give a shit and is bloated beyond belief.; secretaries make 60K and up at the MTA whereas a track worker gets a little over half that. AOC wasn't elected to gush over the DC Metro, she's paid to represent the folks who put her in office who want the MTA to stop dicking around and fix the NYC subway system.

tl;dr yeah OK the DC metro is nice and so are others but STFU cunt and work on shit that matters to the people that put you in office.

So she supposedly wants people to go green but then does this whole thing of saying "lol I can't believe anyone uses the New York public transit it suuuuuuuuuuucks amirite girlfrans?"
I swear it's like she's a plant by the GoP or some shit, she's literally unbelievably stupid.

Also I wouldn't get on a metro anyway because I don't like going underground, so it's neat learning about different metros.

It's almost like she never took public transportation and was chauffeured everywhere instead. Strange, that.
Or, alternatively, it's like taking the DC Metro during the day as a sitting congressman is a lot easier/safer than the NYC Subway at night as a fucking bartender.

NYC's Mayor Bloomberg would pull that shit all the time. "The Subway is safe, I take it to work every day", yeah of course it's safe when you're on it at 7AM with 20 NYPD Lieutenants.

I think you forget how insanely expensive it is to do major infrastructure projects in New York. Both the city and the state. No way anything major gets done without essentially buying off 50% plus one of the population with gibs.

OK that may be so but given the insane salaries at the MTA and the skim NY State & the MTA still have enough to pay for basic maintenance, they choose not to until its a emergency.

Welcome to Civil Service Grifting 101. Blow the budget surplus on frivolous bureaucratic bullshit at the end of the fiscal year rather than long term upkeep of infrastructure. Then when shit eventually fails due to lack of maintenance appeal for "temporary" "emergency" funding. Ta-da! Larger budgets! More staff! More bureaucracy!

Repeat.
 
Democracy is the only way we can easily see how stupid these people are and laugh at them. If this moron got high in The Party by sucking cock and ended up in a position of power in a tyranny we wouldn't know and there'd be nothing we could do anyway.

The internet is rapidly taking us back to the roots of democracy, where everyone that was involved had to actually get out in the public square and be heard, and everyone knew who they were and how they were exceptional. Only this time we have the rights of man and not just a bunch of Greek pedos voting on who to genocide. It's good times for the human race really.

I meant it ironically of course. :lol: I stand by what Winston Churchill said. "Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time."
I'm an avid supporter of representational democracy, and firmly support the freedoms that a lot of people like Cortez would want to take away from the average person.

Also like you said it's great to be able to laugh at the stupidity of these people, my only wish is that they weren't put into positions of power where they can actually try to enact their wishes.

you got to consider her constituents. She isn't going to communicate well with her electorate by using big words. Her yeeking and oooking in "southern negro" accent works well.

Some of her constituents are complaining that she's been ignoring their requests for meetings and that her office basically amounts to a voicemail and mailbox redirecting everything to the circular file.

Her performance is for the national audience of woke people and the media, which is why it's dumbed down and incredibly pandering.

Don't believe this girl gives a flying fuck about her constituents. She just wants to play "Congresswoman", not really do the job. If AOC really wanted to make her mark in Congress, ensuring re-elections, she'd be listening more and babbling much less. She'd have at least one office open to serve constituents. She'd have periodic "town halls" back home to listen to people's thoughts, ideas, and questions. She'd be making contacts on both sides of the aisle. Bet a new member can learn a lot from Congresspeople who have been there for a while, and bet such people are willing to help, whether she's of their party or not. AOC would periodically meet with her state's Senators, learn from them, maybe coordinate positions on issues. AOC would be quietly visiting Cabinet Secretaries, to introduce herself and make connections to be used when a constituent needs help. At least that's how I would do it. Not rocket science. Just common sense.

If you are willing to work and learn, have some common sense, and are reasonably affable you can be a successful Congressperson or Senator, one who will be taken seriously. AOC's just playing "Congresswoman", and in doing so has made a fool of herself and done a serious disservice to her constituents and the nation.
