AZ Democrat: I Want My Generation to Kill Golf, ‘Self-Interested Parts of the Agriculture’ Industry


Something for a Saturday to remind us just how far left the left can go. I was looking forward  to sitting down and enjoying watching a round or two of golf on the golf channel this weekend.

Next weekend, Tiger Woods will be back at it, and we will see if he can do a repeat and continue his winning streak. I have many happy memories of a round of golf with my father on a Saturday. Enjoy it while you can.

Democratic state senator Juan Mendez (Ariz.) on Monday called for Arizona to adopt provisions of the Green New Deal because he wants to be “part of the generation that kills golf” and the “greedy parts of the agriculture business industry.”

Mendez participated in a press conference on “Earth Day” with Democrats and environmental activists, where he touted his support for the Green New Deal.

“I’d rather be part of the generation that kills golf and self-interested, greedy parts of the agriculture business industry than the one that killed the planet,” Mendez said. “I have no concern for just one industry’s future. I’m here to protect our shared future, and that does not have to include alfalfa just because it’s safe market choice and has high yields.”

The Green New Deal is a 14-page economic stimulus resolution that was released in February by self-described democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D., Mass.) that aims to fight income inequality and climate change. The American Action Forum study offered an estimate in February of the Green New Deal costing up to $94.4 trillion, or over $600,000 per household in the United States.

    Most golf courses are built upon land fills. What else would you build there? Skyscrapers? Homes with a free methane source?

    Anywho, Heaven to me is Golf with a caddie. Maybe two caddies. We won’t get into their attributes this go round.

    Yes, some fond memories of playing a few rounds of golf with my brother, he who passed on in ’02.
    Where I live we have three pretty recent PGA winners from same town, county, and high school and really close in years. Bubba, Boo, and Heath.

    I wondered when “They’d” get around to demonizing golf courses. Cemeteries next ?:)

    You know, when it comes to leftist rhetoric, I’m never (ever) disappointed. Given where this idiot lives, it is hard to imagine that he prefers desert waste to the beauty of a well-manicured golf course. Mendez, as it turns out, is not the brightest bulb in the box—evidenced by the fact that he plagiarized (of all things) a questionnaire. Now if he can’t even complete a questionnaire without cheating, then his management of a nonprofit organization ought to receive some attention by state auditors. Silly me, honesty only applies to right-leaning politicians. On that note, I’m still waiting to hear what the FEC intends to do about AO-C’s playing fast and loose with campaign funds.

    As it happens, I share your love of golf, Bunks, but have to say that my performance as a golfer only slightly resembles that of the professionals (and even then, only with a robust imagination).

      The left and their imagination never disappoints. I too have to say my golf score requires a few mulligans to say the least… either way,, spending a day out on the links on a beautiful day restores the soul.. I doubt he would understand that.
