so how much do you think the donors would be willing to pay Cruz if he'd stop pitching ideas that don't work?
and if he's thinking of running for President he better be one rich mofo.
Hahah!

About the same amount of money Democrats 'pay' Black Christians to ignore the homo's and baby killing perpetrated by wacko Progressives...

Although I did meet him...


I have nothing against Bush as a person. He's a nice guy and a great father. A lousy president and not very bright but pleasant none the less. Reminds me a little bit of Gomer Pyle.

Teacher...

What do you think of this?

"More schools opening Advanced Placement courses to all students"

"Some students may not be adequately prepared for the rigorous classes and high achievers may be shut out. But supporters see equal access as an educational right."

If he can get blacks to stop raping and robbing those supermarkets and theater/theater-goers then I will truly call him Magic.

Otherwise, f*ckoff and keep your hands out of my pockets, dood.

That's great!! It means things have improved enough to allow the money to flow again. The Pakistani government has gotten over their outrage over the bin Laden raid. Finally!

We have to resume aid if we are going to withdraw out troops from Afghanistan and leave Pakistan to fight terrorism on their own.

"Most" people *get* that corporate heads tend to settle and pay out instead of serving time for any crimes committed, whether deliberate intent is proven, or not. Everybody knows that the wealthy rarely ever get the punishment they deserve for their crimes.

I met Clinton in 97. Very personable, approachable. A little silly but someone you could go shoot hoops with and talk about normal things. Not outwardly focused on the mission though...

I met Bush II in 07 and he was very quiet and business only. He came across as being Extremely humble though. Mission focused. stuffy...

Politics, in eyesight of the media, is sometimes just an act...

Cruz doesn't have to worry about motivating conservative voters, he's got the full backing of theKoch brothers. He only has to answer to them, and so far he's doing a fine job.

You continue to prove your illiterate. The Roman Empire fell because the Senators of the day were selfish and self-absorbed, determined to hoard the huge wealth of the empire. The common people lost all power and were lucky if they had enough to eat.
That is where we are headed IF we allow Republicans to take control. The truly informed among us are doing everything possible to see that doesn't happen. Obama is stopping the flow of money to those who would take us down (CEO's and the well connected) and reforming the bloated financial system that has feathered their purses.
Stand firm Obama!!!
The truly informed among us? LOL! Truly informed? What does that mean? Those who swallow everything the Obama administration feeds them?

In other words you've actually bought into the left's lies about republicans "wanting dirty air and water, starving the elderly and children, and letting those without health insurance die in the streets? Is that your definition of "truly informed"?

Just admit it - you want a government which will take as much as they possibly can from those who have and give it to those who have not.

your assumption that people who have never bothered to have a family doctor and have always relied on emergency rooms for routine problems will suddenly change their behavior because they have insurance is completely illogical...
What is completely illogical is your statement. The reason people don't have a family doctor is precisely because they don't have insurance and can't afford to see a doctor on a regular basis. Providing them with insurance, they will be able to see a doctor, take advantage of preventative medicine, quit relying on the emergency room for care after their condition has worsened and reduce medical costs across the board.

Serious dude, using the moniker of John Galt is an oxymoron in your case

But then again, I'm assuming you know who John Galt is and where he's at. I very much doubt you are that well versed in literature
