Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
When those fail, aim for center mass.

Reality Check: Even Solar, Wind Companies Blast Green New Deal For Not Operating in 'Political Reality'
https://townhall.com/tipsheet/leahbarko ... e-n2543529
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may have backing for her Green New Deal from fellow progressive politicians but if the widespread criticism she’s received hasn’t been telling enough for her, perhaps the renewable energy sector’s dismissal of it will be.

Representatives from solar and wind companies lauded the “enthusiasm” behind the GND but called it out for being completely unrealistic and too politically divisive, according to a Reuters report.
“If you just broadly endorse the Green New Deal, you are liable to upset one side of the aisle or the other. And that’s not constructive,” said Tom Werner, the CEO of SunPower Corp, one of the nation’s biggest solar power companies.

“The idea that you could go 100 percent (clean energy) in 10 years would require a lot of things happening perfectly, simultaneously,” he said. “You’d have to have bipartisan support, 52-state support.”
Say what?? I just checked and my United States flag still only has 50 stars. Apparently you don't have to be AOC to be out of touch with reality and facts.

You're correct but both are sometimes counted as such. Either way I get the point.

People who are advocating massive changes to the United States should be able to clearly and correctly communicate facts. Fact: there are 50 states. Fact: the country is a constitutional republic, not a democracy.

Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) called for banning all semi-automatic firearms on Thursday night after championing New Zealand's radical new gun control measures, which includes government confiscation of nearly all semi-automatic firearms.

If they’re gonna count PR, they might as well throw all of them in and get us up to 55 or 66 depending on how you count them.

Democratic darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez still hasn’t paid a six-year-old tax bill left over from a failed business venture.
