And what a stupid question you ask.
I know you're a big enough idiot to defend this fool, even as you know it's a scam.
Unlike your weak accusations, I've caught the speech patterns, the phrases. They all say the same stuff. Not one word, you nitwit. If you want to play the idiot, who'd be surprised??

<quoted text>his father became a staunch critic of Castro, along with several family members who remained in Cuba, when the rebel leader took control and began seizing private property and suppressing dissent. One dictator took over for another dictator. Cruz's father left before Castro took over. He did not know that Castro was communist. Most of the people didn't. Most people in Cuba just hated Batista so much they would fight with anyone to get rid of him. Hard to believe anyone thought that Castro would be a dictator.
The US media hailed Fidel Castro as an "agrarian reformer."

At least until the mass executions began.

Today they continue to praise Castro for free medical care, even after butchering Hugo Chavez.

Of course I know it's a derogatory word. Just wonder why blacks don't.
Paula Deen claims she used that word 30 years ago and only one time after being robbed at gunpoint by an employee.
So she should lose everything?
Have Americans become so thin-skinned and overly sensitive?
Victim mentality is what liberals have been preaching for years. Liberals made sure of their plight in life. They always need an underclass of people that they can use and abuse to further their power. One example today, small little girls under the age of 5 holding up signs with a coat hanger on it in Texas. Liberals are the biggest abusers of children and people in the history of history.
Political correctiveness has pushed America into a dark corner. Blacks on the democrat plantation want to be judged by the color of their skin. This goes against the grain of everything Martin Luther King tried to teach them.

When blacks say it to each other, it is not derogatory. Not all black people use this term, you cannot judge all blacks by lyrics in rap music.
I don't know the details about Paula Deen but I do not think she is a racist. I could be wrong

No doubt there is a double standard— blacks can say it without much social consequence but whites can not. But if, in this day and age, you don't know it is a derogatory word, then there is no helping you. It pretty much explains your lack of critical awareness and sensitivity to difference.
Galt refuses to accept or acknowledge your "double standard."

If the n-word is acceptable for use by blacks, it is also acceptable for use by whites.

Shouldn't the liberals be everywhere demanding the health care go into effect? I mean really won't there be mass amounts of people dying in the street tomorrow after O'bama delayed O'bamacare. That's what they were saying before--so really, how many? should we expect will die tonight at the hands of O'bama and the democrats for so called, political gain?

The logical conclusion is that if Bush didn't blatantly go after his political enemies using the IRS...and if Bush didn't call his opposition "a potential threat to democracy...and if Bush's DOJ didn't illegally confiscate emails and phone records of an opposition in the press...and if Tice's, like Snowden's, allegations are true that "the abuse is rampant"...and if the NSA has increased capabilities allowing them to copy "every domestic communication in this country word for word"...shouldn't we have every reason to be even more concerned under Obama than under Bush?
Considering this president made it quite clear early on that some of us are his enemies?
It sure would've concerned me if Bush had made that clear right before individual liberals and liberal organizations were targeted and interrogated by the FBI and a liberal journalist's emails and phone records were illegally confiscated by Bush's Attorney General - knowing what we know now about the NSA.
Very concerned...even as a conservative.
Shouldn't we be more concerned now since this president and his administration act like they are completely immune from any scrutiny because of a disengaged media?
Wouldn't you be more concerned if the shoe was on the other foot - your foot to be precise?
Seems to me bushie boy exercised much more autonomy in the immune and lack of scrutiny department.

She campaigned and voted for O'bama-I think she is a racist too, just for those two reasons.

And let me say a big fat thank you for supporting ObamaCare since I'm one of the "lucky" ones not in the "younger/healthier" crowd. Ironic that the younger healthier folks will pay a lot more than the rest of us, huh?
Wonder how that's going to go over. And here you thought ObamaCare was going to be the best thing since sliced bread.
Get a washcloth. That egg on your face must be getting dried and cracked by now.
lol! Oh! No wonder you support the R&R Railroad of romney/ryan and their attempted evisceration of Medicare and SS for the younger crowd.

This refugee came to the United States as a young boy in the early 1960s. His family was more fortunate than most as they were able to bring a suitcase and $100 when they fled Castro's newly formed revolutionary paradise.

Our dinner consisted of all-American fare: hamburgers, potato salad, watermelon and fresh ears of sweet corn. This is a menu shared with family and friends nationwide, while celebrating the birth of our beloved America on the Fourth of July.

We began with a simple discussion about our country and the direction it has taken since Barack Obama came to power. We shared the usual complaints about the sour economy and liberal social engineering emanating from the rulers in Washington.

But then he said it. The sentence came naturally. I assume it was unplanned. But it carried the weight of a freight train. "You know when Castro took power, none of us knew he was a Communist."

We sat stunned. He continued, "Yes, we all thought he was a patriot, a nationalist. Before the revolution he didn't sound like a radical."

The comparison at this point was easy, and I interjected, "You mean just like Barack Obama?"

He responded;"Yes, just like Barack Obama."

He continued, "We were all shocked as the government just continued to grab more power. First they said the revolution is over, so please turn in your guns. We all complied."

"I remember my uncle saying after it started;'Castro will only nationalize some of the big industries, he will never come and take our family hardware store.' But that is exactly what happened; Castro started with the sugar mills and the large industries, but they eventually came and knocked on the door of our family hardware store. My family had run this store for generations. They said we now own the hardware store, you work for us. And that nice, large four-bedroom home you own, it is now our property also, and you can move yourself and five children into two rooms of the house because others are moving in with you."

The lesson learned from this discussion is a lesson most Americans refuse to hear. Political leaders can lie about their agenda and once in office they can take totally unexpected turns.
