New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s college poem from 2011 is preserved in the Boston University website archives, and it is a doozy. Ocasio-Cortez was then known as “Sandy.”
The poem is entitled “Questions,” and reads as follows:
Where are we going?
When birds sing to one another, are they looking for melody or harmony?
I’ve never been the one with answers.
How is it that our eyes betray us?
What does tomorrow bring?
Just questions. Enigmatic, urgent, smoldering questions.
But this, this is a world of answers:
where to go, what to do, how to get rich quick –
the degree to make you slick
the title you want to hit
the right dosage for your sick.
Well, I’ve forgotten about the ready-made bullets in that gun
because for me, not knowing is half the fun
It’s the uncertain moment before a first kiss
It’s trying to remember if your seatbelt clicked
It’s the ride.
And I don’t really know about this world full of answers
But I think I’ll hold on to my questions
Because if not knowing is half the fun
Then inventing the answers on a bed of dew drops is the other
I’ll show you the color of my love
or at least I can try
but maybe in that case, two makes better than one.
I just ask that you leave your answers at home
because to be honest, I don’t really care about where we’re going.
I care about who we become along the way.”
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
