Ever wonder why "Ted" Cruz has chosen to go by "Ted" instead of Rafael? Is he ashamed of his heritage?

There is one person crazier than "Ted" Cruz...his dad.

Rafael Cruz: "One of the things in Obamacare is that for the elderly, every five years you must have end-of-life counseling. Translation: suicide counseling," he said.

Abstract:
There was a military plan for an overthrow of the government and that except for one or two general officers, all were in agreement. The plan consists of a military ruler advised by a committee of three. The reason for the military takeover was that President Diem had failed to act in the best interests of Vietnam on the occasion of the 8 May Buddhist incident in Hue. The entire Ngo family must be eliminated but the plan did not specify whether they would be killed or merely exiled from Vietnam. When the military group assumes power over the government, elections will be announced immediately and will be held from three to six months following the takeover of power.
Next: Compareand contrast the differences between ADVISERS and actual combat personel.

They did exactly what they were elected to do by their constituents.

They also were looking ahead knowing Democrats will soon have to defend what can't be defended. They can at least say, "Don't look at us. We were the ones looking out for you."

If you really read the scriptures in Genesis and Ezekiel, it's hard not to interpret that UFOs took people in biblical times "up into the clouds".

After Moses returned from "the clouds" after 40 days, his face was so "luminous" and glowed that he had to cover it just to keep from frightening the people.

The description of Ezekiel seeing a "wheel within a wheel" in the sky that "shown like polished brass" is so detailed, it's amazing to me so many Christians simply deny it was a UFO.

So if you're talking about literal interpretations when it comes to what I personally believe, you're probably talking to the wrong person. Because I interpret some scriptures so literally, most Christians would think I was crazy.

But maybe if you gave me a specific example of what you wouldn't necessarily consider a literal interpretation...

Because I could give you several myself where symbols, parables and metaphors are not necessarily to be taken literally.

Galt, just one last comment on the subject of literal interpretations.

Love is the single most important message of the New Testament. Christ said the two greatest commandments are "love God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind" and the second "love your neighbor as yourself."

He went so far as to add "All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."

So it's really not important to get caught up and distracted by what is or isn't necessarily to be taken literally.

So that's all I have to say.

Okay, let's get back to Obama's failed policies.

Just to be clear...I love the stuffin' out of him as a fellow human being. But I hate his radical ideology of total government control.

Again, just to be clear on that.

Since we were talking about Mormonism, do you know what Mormons believe? Or the life and history of Joseph Smith?

I really don't care what Romney believes as far as his personal religious beliefs.

But most people simply don't understand or relate to Mormonism. That's just a fact.

And when you're running for president, that's important to a lot of people - whether it's wrong or right.
Yeah

How can anyone to profess believing in God, loving him with all their heart, and then not care about the many people who need affordable healthcare insurance. I'm not referring to people who are lazy and don't want to work, but the vast numbers of people out there struggling to survive - people who have to work 2 or 3 jobs just to stay afloat including the fact that insurance isn't made available to them through their employers. It's easy for the haves or those who don't care about anyone but themselves, to not understand this fact and be blinded by the Republican ideology that everyone who needs help in this day and age, is simply a lazy slug. That is just not so and it's disturbing sad and pathetic that they cram that ideology into unsuspecting and clueless people's minds. Some are eager to swallow that hypothesis. That's not to say that some do not try and take advantage of the system, but the fact is that the vast majority who are hurting, do not. Republicans even know this and they would have no choice but to do the same. The only difference is that they don't want Obama's name to be forever associated with helping so many average American people. That certainly won't fare well with Republicans and the tea party now would it? Kind of squashes their hope of ever getting a Republican president again. They lost again this time and their catalyst Boehner proved to be a big fail.
