Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ripped capitalism Monday, demanding a socialist U.S. society. She’ll mellow out with age, we all do. If MLK were alive today he’d be ninety years old, and his dream would be that he could sleep without having to get up and pee three times a night.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons Friday reported performing a record-high number of cosmetic surgeries in the U.S. last year including stomach tucks, butt and breast implants, and nose jobs. In Beverly Hills we even have a drive-through plastic surgery clinic. It’s called Jiffy Boob.
