    So Cortez is drinking in a bar and a news report comes on about a jumper on a ledge, the guy next to her goes: "I Bet you $20 he jumps". Cortez says: "Ok you're on", a few minutes later, HOLY FREAKING SHIT, the guy swan dives right off the ledge. Cortez shakes her head in exasperation and pulls out $20 to pay the man, the guy looks at her and thinks for a few seconds and goes: "Aww forget it I just can't take your money, I saw this earlier on the 6:00 news so I knew the guy jumped". Cortez replies: " Yeah I saw it too but I didn't think he'd jump again".

          Even without fossil fuels, we will exceed our 565 gigatonnes CO2e limit by 2030, all from raising animals. Animal agriculture is the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution, and habitat destruction. We are currently growing enough food to feed 10 billion people. Livestock covers 45% of the earth’s total land. Animals produce Enough waste to cover SF, NYC, Tokyo, etc. 414 billion dollars in externalized cost from animal agriculture. 1/3 of the planet is desertified, with livestock as the leading driver. 80% of antibiotic sold in the US are for livestock etc. etc. We can live without consuming flesh and secretions. Visit a slaughter house and smell the shit, blood, and fear.

            It is her job as a lawmaker to regulate companies so she just makes a fool of herself by giving that responsibility to banks.

                          This is why we don't have nice things...

                          You elect dumb people to be in charge.

                          When you are hired, it's based on merit...

                          The gentleman from Wells Fargo is experienced and trained for his position.

                          AOC was a bartender, now she is a political mistake.

                          Maybe politics should be run more like a business instead of just voting for any registered idiot in America?

                          Than we wouldn't have to be subjected to such nonsense everyday!!!

                          So “hypothetically,” if a bank finances a car and the driver gets drunk and wrecks, should the bank be held accountable?
                          This woman is an incredibly partisan idiot.

                          I will never forget that she says we should support those who are “unwilling to work.” That statement alone is one of the most mind-bogglingly stupid things I’ve ever heard a politician make... and I’ve heard a lot of stupid statements from them.

                            She is stupid. Her logic is flawed. Isn’t there a common sense test before one would take an office position such as this one? Her questions are just stupid. But, again, what can one expected out of a liberal/democrat. Nonsense and stupidity is common from the “left”.

                                I like what This Woman's doing trying to address climate change and the hypocrisies in Washington, but this is really stretching it... If I loan somebody $10,000 to build a shed and that shed collapses on their goat, am I responsible for the death of the goat... don't over reach to prove a point of corruption between Banks, companies and the environment because then you'll look foolish and people won't take you seriously on the issues you are correct about

                                                    Why did you loan that person $20 and then require them to pay you $30 in return, isn't that stealing????? Shouldn't you have just given them $20 and then apologized for not giving them more, I mean isn't that what you're supposed to do with "white-privilege" even though it's a bank??? Why didn't you just give EVERYONE who ask $20, can't you just print more money???? I mean just because you have a limited amount of something doesn't mean you can't just give an unlimited number of that something away, am I right? You could at least give everyone a dollar, even if they didn't want it, you could give everyone a dollar, couldn't you?!?!?! And SO, all this makes me wonder... why you didn't think of some kind of an excuse to get out of this hearing yesterday...., I mean isn't causing yourself an injury to get out of this hearing less painful, than say...., trying to figure out how to answer the self-righteous and completely IRRELEVANT questions coming from the democrats on this panel????????????????????????????????????????

Nothing about this interaction was sharp or intelligent and I can't tell of you're a bot or being serious. She asked a LOAN COMPANY why they were involved in the CAGING OF CHILDREN. Do you see the issue with that? Why don't we hold Auto Loan companies responsible for peoples' hit and run accidents? Why don't we hold employers responsible for how their employees spend their paychecks? If somebody works at McDonalds and buys a gun to shoot somebody with, man, McDonalds gave him that money, better hold them responsible.
