Senator Ted Cruz
« on: February 18, 2021, 05:51:57 PM »
Ted Cruz!
He’s in the News!!!

While his constituents froze and went hungry, Ted thought it was time to get some sun in Cancun.  So there he went, probably to think deep thoughts about how to deal with pressing issues back home. Of course, he is a federal official, so he can’t deal with a state problem.  But I’m sure this is not exactly a PR win for him.

Ted plays while the cold slays.

Ted’s having fun in the Cancun sun.

Aid: Sir, the people have no heat.
Ted: Let them take Cancun vacations.

There is always talk about that.  It's bullshit.  We already lost that battle in the Civil War.

People don't think about things.  Us being a nation (assuming the US would allow it, which it won't) would mean that we would need passports to go to Louisiana to Mardi Gras, to Oklahoma to gamble, and to New Mexico to ski.

I read that Cruz is already explaining that he was only accompanying the children and their mother to Cancun, after which he planned to immediately return.  As if, a) his wife weren't able to take kids to Cancun on her own, and b) anyone will believe his story.

it cant secede, but there's a clause in the 1845 annexation treaty between the the united states and the republic of texas that allows it to split into up to four separate states:

Quote
New States of convenient size not exceeding four in number, in addition to said State of Texas and having sufficient population, may, hereafter by the consent of said State, be formed out of the territory thereof, which shall be entitled to admission under the provisions of the Federal Constitution

the us constitution already allows new states to be formed by merging existcing ones or taking pieces of two or more states and combining them, but i  think texas having the option of generate six more senators is unique. but it requires the consent of both state and federal legislatures, so it won't be happening

there are people in teh borderlands between california and oregon who want to split off and create the state of jefferson.

If his mouth is open, he's lying. One thing I agree with Trump on: he's Lyin' Ted.

Ted lied over and over again about the trip because each lie was revealed. And like any great father, he threw his kids under the bus to try to save face.
Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Tex Senator Ted Cruz booked a cruise to Cancun
Tex Senator Ted Cruz lit a fuse with his ruse
Soon to be
Ex-Senator Ted Cruz will kneel and pray to Q
But still lose
Ex-Senator Ted Cruz won't feel sand today 
Ex-Senator Ted Cruz won't feel warm sun rays
Won't be swarmed and pushed into the sea
Instead
He'll be forced to stay for infinity
Until he's dead, at least  ::)

^ Don't bet your lunch money that Cruz will be turned away on election day.  He has a gazillion supporters who have their feeble minds made up.   Same as the Trumpists who have no intention of turning away from their earthly god symbol.

'tis true, and more's the pity. One ray of hope is that even Texas is slowly turning (politically) blue. Our day is coming, albeit slowly.

What gets me about all this is that evangelicals have replaced their god with people like Trump and Cruz. I think that's some sort of sin. I know, they think Trump is the second coming of Christ and Cruz is his right hand angel.
