By Isabel Vincent and Melissa Klein March 2, 2019

Since declaring her candidacy in May 2017, Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign heavily relied on those combustible-engine cars — even though a subway station was just 138 feet from her Elmhurst campaign office.

She listed 1,049 transactions for Uber, Lyft, Juno and other car services, federal filings show. The campaign had 505 Uber expenses alone.

In all, Ocasio-Cortez spent $29,365.70 on those emissions-spewing vehicles, along with car and van rentals — even though her Queens HQ was a one-minute walk to the 7 train.

The campaign shelled out only $8,335.41 on 52 MetroCard transactions.

Her campaign embraced the friendly skies, logging 66 airline transactions costing $25,174.54 during campaign season.

The Democratic firebrand or her staff took Amtrak far less — only 18 times — despite high-speed rail being the cornerstone of her save-the-world strategy.

And yet again... ideology takes a back seat to the cold, hard reality that in today's "flexible scheduling" world, individual transport is a necessity.

Can you imagine what kind of coronary she'd have if she were forced to live in a rural area where even Uber isn't really a viable option?

The Making of a Limousine Liberal: A 12 Step Program

Here are the steps:

    1. Choose parental units (preferably minority) at least one of whom is willing to carry you to full term, and assign you a gender at birth. (Note: already 2 violations of liberal principles)  ...

3. If you’re not lucky enough to have a postman as a father, claim to having been raised in a “working class” family (this may even be true if you consider a family supported by an architect father who owns his own company specializing in remodeling and renovations to be “working class.”) Also mention that your mother cleaned houses and drove school busses, no need to explain when and for how long. Remember, it’s your truth.

4. Get into an expensive top tier college (not hard if you were fortunate enough to have chosen at least one minority parental unit in step #1) pay (or have paid, again, if you chose wisely in step 1) $300,000 for a degree in international relations and Economics. These credentials will result in you automatically being hailed as as “sharp,” “smart”  and “extraordinary” by the usual suspects in the media.  ...

9. Put friends with benefits on the payroll once you win the Congressional lottery. If challenged, play your race card (see #1)

10. Develop a Middle School level policy paper with a very politically charged name like “The New Green Deal.”

11. Strike a pose looking very, very intelligent. (very, very important).  ...

Keep it up AOC, let the "little" people see you in all your splendor.
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, the triathlon must have taken him completely by surprise.
