Set Your “Cruz” Control

(Sound of corks popping…..idle chatter…….applause…….)

It is official!  The 2016 campaign season has begun!  (Please put your brain in neutral and sit back).

Ted Cruz has announced his candidacy for the GOP nomination before a captive audience (attendance mandatory or be fined) at Liberty University.  During his drawn out speech we got our first political slogan of the 2016 election season……”Reignite the promise of America”…….it will be the perfect slogan….why?  There is no consensus on what the term means….leave it to the imagination of the weak minded and easily manipulated.

“I believe God isn’t done with America yet,” Mr. Cruz said during a speech at Liberty University, sending a strong signal that he plans to compete for the evangelical Christians that traditionally play a big role in the GOP nomination race.

“I believe in you. I believe in the power of millions of courageous conservatives rising up to reignite the promise in America,” he said. “And that is why today I am announcing that I am running for president of the United States.”

His little speech did one thing…..made me yawn……he went on and on and we now know what he is against…..marriage equality, immigration reform, Obamacare, the IRS, Communist and finally…..LOGIC!

All that is just peachy….we know what he is against……but what is he for?  What are his alternatives to all those things?  All I heard was his support for a flat tax……then NOTHING!

Cruz is the first to announce for one reason…..he can control the media for the next couple of weeks….plus he will be the center of attention…..the spotlight is his desire and now he has it….at least for awhile…..

Keep in mind…..”Reignite The Promise Of America”………maybe he will define this soon…..but do not hold your breath…….it is what it is….a slogan……

So my friends, hold on to your genitals you are about to be beat over the head with Cruz stories for the next couple of weeks….and after all that there is one thing for certain……

He will NOT be your GOP nominee!

There is one thing to be sure of……Cruz is about himself….never about the country…….he may lose but he will NOT go away……and that is the pathetic part.

2016 Is A One Man Race

The Dems have their one woman race (at least for now) and now the GOP has there single candidate……Good Ole Boy Ted Cruz (YAWN!)……yee–ha!

If it seems like it’s already gone on for years, we are currently 596 (five hundred ninety-six) days away from the election that will determine the next president of the United States of America. But we are only one day away from the first official hat getting tossed into the 2016 ring by one of the many who been circling it, and the Houston Chronicle reports that it belongs to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Unnamed senior advisers say the Republican will announce his candidacy tomorrow, skipping right past the exploratory committee fun (looking at you, Jim Webb) and going right for the hat-tossing. More unnamed sources confirm the pending announcement to the AP, which notes Cruz will likely be soon joined by the likes of Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio. And if 2016 doesn’t work out for Cruz, he’ll keep his current day job until 2019.

Ted Cruz?  Again……YAWN!  He is a clown that will go nowhere…..but at least he is the first so the media will be all ga-ga for awhile until the next gutless wonder decides to stop playing games and announces……he must feed his hubris!  Cruz feels he must be the center of attention and he can have that…..at least for a short time….all eyes will be laser focused on Ted.

Only a foolish person would consider this person as president…….an ego-centric d/bag that will ALWAYS put self before country…….not something needed at this time….or for that matter….EVER!

Let The Fun Begin!

5 signs Scott Walker is employing GOP’s racist “Southern Strategy” – Salon.com

The 2016 elections are knocking on the door…..and the media is already picking your faves for you…….the closer the “silly season” gets the more candidate stories we will hear and see…….most of them are mere distractions……that is not saying there are no truly impressive people thinking of running…….

The fair hair boy that some analyst like for the 2016 GOP nomination is Scott Walker…..it seems that he is likeable because of his duties as governor….plus him taking on a recall and winning…..his win against unions……..and his gutting of the state’s funds….all these things make him just adorable to the Right wing media and even some in the MSM……

But there may be a “dark side” to his “force”………

Ben Carson: Wrong For The USA

Since the starting gun for the “Silly Season” has been fired….I will take that and run with it…….let the ignorance begin.

First let me say….and I will probably get some grief from the conservs that will support him, in the last couple of election cycles the GOP has been trotting out black candidates with the hope to dis-spell the dialog that they are losing ALL support in the African-American communities……remember Herman Cain?

For the 2016 season they will trot out Ben Carson as a viable candidate just as they did with Cain…..and like Cain he will be nothing but a diversion to keep the media busy typing their asses off…..

Carson is a doctor of some sort and one would think that he would be a bit more knowledgeable on affairs…….anyway he is forming an exploratory committee about the viability of his candidacy…….the first step to a run……

Like Cain he wasted NO time coming out of the gate with moronic statements……….

After announcing the formation of an exploratory committee for his likely presidential campaign, Ben Carson appeared on CNN’s “New Day” this morning, where he outlined his view that homosexuality is “absolutely” a choice.

“A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight and when they come out, they’re gay,” Carson said. “Did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question.”

As Carson sees it, gay people are trying “to impose their lifestyle on everyone else,” and it is up to Carson to speak up against them. In a 2013 interview with Sean Hannity of Fox News, he even went so far as to group gay people with people who want to have sex with children and animals.
Please read more….and then tell me this is a person that you would want representing the country…….
I am guessing that he also thinks that a woman that is raped was done so because of the clothes she wore……
He is NOT a viable candidate and he will be devoured in any debates that he may choose to enter……a vote for him will be a vote for ignorance and stupidity.  PERIOD!

CPAC hawks defeat ISIS with lots of angry hand-waving – Salon.com

I watched the CPAC show last week and came to an epiphany……any credible candidate for the GOP will be emphasizing foreign policy……which is a good play for they have pretty much shown that they have NO real domestic policy that could improve this country.

The problem is those that are thumping their chests on foreign policy have NO idea what that policy is all about…..they basically have NO policy there either but ….defeat ISIS….but when asked how that can be accomplished…..they are at a loss for words……

None of the big dollar headliners have NO idea…..not Christie or Cruz or Rubio or Bush….etc etc……none have any foreign policy experience……so what is this magical strategy to defeat ISIS?

Chest thumping is a campaign strategy…..but it will win NO wars without knowledge and a plan…….

I will be honest….the Dems are just as pathetic as the GOP when it comes to an actual plan to fight ISIS……..so unless someone on either side becomes a bit more knowledgeable then there will be NO substantial to fight much less win against ISIS……

Meanwhile….back to CPAC………

Huckabee Has The Answer!

One name being batted around for the GOP nomination is one Huckabee or Huck-a-buck or….well you pick a description for this mental midget.  Back in 2008 when he ran for this prestigious position he was joined by Walker Texas Ranger….Chuck Norris….I do hope that happens again so I may return to calling it the “Huck And Chuck Show”…….a comedy of errors.

Enough of my jocularity….let’s get to what this post is about….of course being a Baptist preacher he will have lots to say about gays and their rights……but he made a statement recently that made me laugh out loud……..

As Mike Huckabee feels out a 2016 presidential campaign, he’s evidently not suddenly going after the gay vote: The former governor of Arkansas tells CNN today that, as a Christian, asking him to accept gay marriage is akin to “asking someone who’s Jewish to start serving bacon-wrapped shrimp in their deli.” He adds that while he has friends who are gay and that he doesn’t shut people “out of my life because they have a different point of view,” he likens homosexuality to a lifestyle choice, like swearing or drinking. “I don’t drink alcohol, but gosh—a lot of my friends, maybe most of them, do. You know, I don’t use profanity, but believe me, I’ve got a lot of friends who do. Some people really like classical music and ballet and opera—it’s not my cup of tea.”

And don’t look for Huckabee to undergo President Obama’s famous “evolution” on the issue: “This is not just a political issue. It is a biblical issue. And as a biblical issue, unless I get a new version of the scriptures, it’s really not my place to say, OK, I’m just going to evolve.” He continues: “We’re so sensitive to make sure we don’t offend certain religions, but then we act like Christians can’t have the convictions that they’ve had for 2,000 years.” (Huckabee recently dinged the Obamas for letting their kids listen to Beyonce, whose dancing is “best left for the privacy of her bedroom.“)

What got me tickled was not the gay stuff for I have come to expect that infantile crap from religious mental midgets but his comment that cursing is a lifestyle……

Really?

I admit it….I curse like a drunken sailor….but mine is not a lifestyle I choose….it is more my minds reaction to the insanity and lack of comprehension by my fellow Americans…..and a coping device for me to keep from choking the living sh*t out of some a/hole that desperately needs it.  Since most are not capable of grasping the simplest concept….my mind just cannot tolerate….STUPID!
