Major League Baseball offers an award for Comeback Player of the Year, and if major league politics handed out a similar prize, Texas Senator Ted Cruz would deserve it.
 
After the embarrassment of a failed presidential campaign and his hostile relationship with the victorious Donald Trump​,​ he’s emerged as a key supporter of the president’s policy agenda. Once strongly disliked by his fellow senators, due to his shutdown strategy and love for the limelight, he’s recently developed solid, respectful working relationships with colleagues of both parties.
 
What’s more, he scored a victory-in terms of both basketball and public relations-with his one-on-one duel with TV talk star Jimmy Kimmel. Most recently, he introduced strong timely, legislation to maintain tough border security while halting separation of kids and parents. Cruz deserves landslide re-election in November for one of Washington’s most encouraging comebacks.

    Ted Cruz is a QEd bankster hack that supported the bailout, rather then letting the larger market cap technology companies of the NASDAQ fill the void of the scam artist banks. Since most banks trade with JAVA script INteractive Brokers or Bloomberg, there’s no vital service the banks provide other then as overpriced, scammer(bank Leumi, Wells Fargo, AIG, US Bank,) mechanisms for economic control as federal reserve “members”/partners.
    Cruz, like his bankster friends(many of them democrats like Jamie Dimon, and felon Jeffrey Epstein is against federal licensing of doctors and hospitals to have them compete across state lines in a free national market.

    I am from San Antonio. Ted Cruz is a great senator! He is running against a fake Hispanic, Beto O'Rourke who changed his name to Beto to sound Hispanic. We have a fake Indian senator from MA and don't need a fake Hispanic from Texas. Cruz deserves to be re-elected.

  3. Erich Aseltine  •  Jun 22, 2018 at 4:21 pm

    I think Senator Cruz would make a Super Supreme Court Justice!

    • Randy  •  Jun 22, 2018 at 4:57 pm

      Great Senator that’s turning a fault presidential run into a positive

    • Richard  •  Jun 23, 2018 at 1:48 am

      Agreed Erich. I don't believe he is interested in that. He is most valuable right now as a Senator although I do think he would make a brilliant Associate Justice.

  4. Ty  •  Jun 23, 2018 at 2:25 am

    This is Texas, so I have very little expectation that Beto will be able to pull through, but I hope he sends this sniveling and insufferable man to defeat.

    It's not surprising Michael is more endeared to him, he has followed the path Michael has chosen for himself. Resignation that Trump is the only train to hitch conservatism to and a willingness to ignore and downplay his faults and focus on the good.

    And Cruz has a lot to ignore, Trump called his father a murderer and his wife ugly, and Cruz is later seen robo calling to help elect Trump. Cruz is so slimy he would step on anyone to cling to power, and so he grovels with the best of them. Utterly contemptible human being, which means he is a delight to conservatives.

    • Rizzo  •  Jun 23, 2018 at 9:32 am

      Trump is not the ONLY conservative to align with, he just so happens to be the BEST.
      And not just the best right now, but the best since Reagan.
      Trump says what he means and means what he says.
      He doesn't back down to leftist kooks, and spineless Republicans.
      The majority of REAL Americans, respect that, and support Trump because of that.
      Face it Ty, your lunacy has failed. Leftists try to accuse him of being mentally unfit.
      Then Russian collusion. Then you "hitched your wagon" to a pornstar…. and the list goes on. It's pathetic. Trump is our president. He has been vastly successful at MAGA! You leftists can't stand it. You can't accept election results. You are obsessed with overturning the will of the American CITIZENS. You are obsessed with impeachment.
      Suck it up…. nominate SOCIALIST BERNIE in 2020, and try again.

    • Ty needs counseling  •  Jun 23, 2018 at 11:39 pm

      Wow!!!! Such intellectual firepower!!!!! Who could still like Cruz after you laid out your case for hating him so well!!!!!

      Ty, you are such a hateful little person. The only reason you gave there for disliking Cruz is that he is willing to put Trump's insults behind him and move on. To people not consumed by hate, that would be seen as a virtue. Does it hurt to be so filled with irrational hate?

      And Trump is Trump. Trump has nothing to do with conservatism. In 2 or 6 years, Trump will be gone and we will be back to a republican candidate along the lines of the other 16 who ran against Trump.

      • Ty  •  Jun 24, 2018 at 1:01 am

        @Ty needs to counsel conservatives : I have many reasons for disliking Ted Cruz beyond his rank opportunism and pandering. His policies are completely antithetical to my own.

        He is against income redistribution, I'm for it (not to make everyone equal, to minimize the consequences of being less lucky and gifted in life in some spheres, like whether you get to live or die if you need insulin and can't afford it). He is against universal healthcare, I am for it. He thinks government is intrinsically destructive and almost never makes any situation better, I think government can have a positive and negative influence when it comes to enhancing the type of freedoms conservatives pay close to zero attention to.

        Positive freedoms. Case in point. When Cruz debated Bernie, he made a point that one of the highest goals of healthcare reform was to increase choice.

        Now, because I am not a fool, not a conservative, I saw this line of thought as the ridiculous goal and standard and endpoint it was. Who CARES if people have more CHOICE, of they can't afford the choices?

        If in the healthcare reform someone like Cruz wants to champion, I have FIVE choices for healthcare insurance, vs one single payer (although that ought to still gives access to hospitals and doctors all over the country), but I can't AFFORD ANY of the 5 choices because I had a preexisting condition, how does that help me? How does it help those in need?

        Now, if I was a conservative, I would have the luxury of looking to see whether that scenario affected me personally, no? Oh great, then I don't CARE if it impoverishes and restricts others, I GOT MINE, I'm a conservative. Am "I" ok? Yes? Then we are DONE.

        That is why I have such open disgust and contempt for so many conservatives. That attitude, is something I find repulsive and disgusting. It is infinitely more ennobling to have an attitude that seeks to expand the circle of concern, such that even IF you and your own inner circle is doing fine, you have SOME concern for people outside it. More than concern, you would be willing to pay higher taxes to ensure that this kind of crap did not happen

        https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/shane-patrick-boyle-died-after-starting-a-gofundme-campaign-for-insulin/

        And don't SPIT in my face and LIE and pretend you give a damn about such people, you do not DO anything about it. You could, you could join us to support such people via universal healthcare, something beyond the charity fairy that MISSES people like this because charity is INHERENTLY fickle and spotty and lumpy in its distribution. That is why we do not rely on god damn charity to fund grade school education, or in your dream world vouchers for charter schools.

        But no, my solution of universal healthcare involves government, and as Saint Reagan said so many decades ago, government is bad, and like good little moral/ethical/logical supplicants who refuse to think for yourselves, you just drop down on bended knee swearing fealty to that dogma, tied in chains like an ideological slave.

      • Rizzo  •  Jun 24, 2018 at 10:16 am

        Dude died in 2017? That's an awful, unfortunate story. But, I swear in 2017, the Obamacare Utopian legislation had already passed, and was forced down all our collective throats, by the force of government. Weren't we ALL supposed to live forever, after the passage of Obamacare… And for FREE. Some magical "rich guys" we're going to pay for it all.

        Well, that didn't happen. It NEVER does. It's a socialist's dream.
        So maybe…. just maybe…. if we tried actual free-market principles, we could create greater choice, and greater competition, and lower prices…. and produce greater wealth, and Ty you will LOVE THIS…. to help ACTUAL poor people.

        It's too bad that guy died…. maybe we should import millions of poor, uneducated, illegal aliens. That couldn't possibly have any negative effects on a guy like that…. an American CITIZEN!

        You people are Frauds and pathetic!

      • Rizzo  •  Jun 24, 2018 at 2:08 pm

        So, 1 guy died under Obamacare in 2017.

        In 2014, 652,639 babies were KILLED, as induced abortions were reported to CDC from 49 reporting areas. The abortion rate for 2014 was 12.1 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years, and the abortion ratio was 186 abortions per 1,000 live births.

      • Rizzo  •  Jun 24, 2018 at 2:11 pm

        So Ty…. how much did YOU GIVE to his GoFundMe page? Or, were YOU all about “I gots mine”!?!?

        Did you just let him die? It’s ok Ty…. you got yours!

      • Rizzo  •  Jun 24, 2018 at 4:28 pm

        It will be weeks or months for poor Ty baby to digest all that information and respond.
        Does all your hypocrisy keep you up at night?

        Probably not…. you need a soul for that type of self-reflection.

      • Rizzo  •  Jun 25, 2018 at 9:14 am

        "my solution of universal healthcare involves government"

        DUH! That's your solution for EVERYTHING!

    • Ty needs counseling.  •  Jun 24, 2018 at 11:21 pm

      And it is hilarious that you fault Cruz for doing almost anything to obtain power. That puts him right in the same boat as just about every other elected politician in DC. Your whole party is willing to harm this country by allowing it to be overrun by third world immigrants because they think it will allow them to obtain power. That is far worse than anything Cruz has done to obtain power. And do I need to remind you who ran as the democrat nominee in 2016? Hillary and bill pardoned Puerto Rican terrorists and Marc Rich to help get a senate seat for Hillary. And let's not forget how Hillary viciously went after all the women would might spill the beans on Bill's mistreatment of women. Ha ha ha. Always the hypocrite ty.

    • Ty needs God and then hospitalization  •  Jun 24, 2018 at 11:34 pm

      There is no such thing as a positive freedom. That is a misuse of the word freedom. Just be honest and call it welfare. Receiving benefits from the government has nothing to do with freedom except that it takes away the freedom of those who have to pay for it. And don't llnk to one of your stupid YouTube videos.. thank you.

      • Ty  •  Jun 25, 2018 at 4:10 pm

        After seeing the effects of this loving and just God on so many of your attitudes, I'll pass. And I am glad you openly rejected the concept of positive freedom, you confirmed what I suggested already. You care NOTHING about it. It makes zero difference to you whether more or less of your fellow man do better or worse in life and society, not if a fraction o your own income must be forfeited to achieve some common good and "general welfare."

        A party and people of collective sociopaths when it comes to any sort of common good. It's only ever been about you.

        Now follow the trail of your own logical prison. No k-12 education, no publicly funded school vouchers. No local utilities run by municipalities, no post office, after all, it was designed to "socialize" the cost of mail delivery, denser cities are more profitable while more rural areas are net losses, and yet we still task it to deliver in unprofitable areas where so many conservatives are clustered. No more, you want everyone for themselves. Follow that train, follow it all the way. You ignorant fools have no god damn clue the natural consequences of your own rhetoric. You walk this earth slobbering on the ground, dazed and confused about basic policy and the natural consequences of that trash you call a world view.

        I so wish I had a magic wand to wave and give you the world you CLAIM you want to see, so I can watch you live with the consequences and watch it burn.

      • Rizzo  •  Jun 25, 2018 at 5:39 pm

        "I so wish I had a magic wand to wave and give you the world you CLAIM you want"

        You CAN…. you and your obstructionist, leftist friends can get the hell out of the way, and move to the land of your "natural consequences", NORTH KOREA OR VENEZUELA.

        So Ty, did you get yours? Or, did you buy this guy some insulin?
        Why didn't Obama care save him? Everything was going to be FREE, and we were going to LIVE FOREVER!

      • Rizzo  •  Jun 25, 2018 at 6:20 pm

        Oh Ty honey…. you've avoided answering very important questions.
        Do you think the Insulin guy was hurt or helped by illegally importing millions of low-skilled, uneducated, third-world aliens?

        You leftists NEVER acknowledge the FACT that your open-borders policies, free-for-all, have serious, far-reaching NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES.

        Hardest hit…. Poor, minority citizens!

        So PLEASE, black people, open your eyes! The Democrat party doesn't help you.
        You are OLD NEWS! They have a NEW and IMPROVED voter base. They have imported a new constituency. They care more about the "rights" of illegal aliens, than YOU, AN AMERICAN CITIZEN.

        Your schools will suffer. Your healthcare will suffer. Your lives will suffer.

        The Democrat party is now actively trying to destroy America.

    • Ty needs God  •  Jun 25, 2018 at 7:00 pm

      My religious beliefs have caused me to give away over $100k over the past 5-6 years. I also donate all sorts of things that I could easily sell for cash. I have been supporting kids in third world countries for at least 5-10 years. I won't mention the $50k+ per year that I pay in taxes because that is forced, but if I were a liberal I would count that as my charitable giving. if you look at the stats, Christians, and religious people in general, contribute more to charity than people such as yourself. So if you are honest and courageous enough to look at the facts, which you aren't, you wouldn't be so dismissive of God.

      Also, I used to be a zero welfare conservative. My religious beliefs caused me change my positions and to conclude that children should get basic medical care through Medicaid, that all Americans should get subsistence medical care and nutrition from the government, that the handicapped (mentally and physical) should receive some assistance from the government, and that the government should fund hospitals for the mentally ill. So again, your dismissive attitude towards God is irrational as are most of the opinions get you have. And yes, my views expressed above show that your characterizations of conservatives are almost completely wrong. But you already knew that.

      Tyrell, I think you should investigate Christianity before it is too late.

      • Rizzo  •  Jun 26, 2018 at 7:53 am

        Ty Needs God…. Beautifully stated.

        I could not agree with you more. You are exactly correct. No conservative wants to abolish Medicaid or not help the helpless. But, we do want to reduce waste, abuse and fraud. And we do want to a system that gives people a hand-up, NOT A multi-generational handout.

        Conservatives are the most caring, compassionate people in America. As such, we used to sit back and let these anti-American leftists just run circles around us, while they destroyed America. We've had enough, and we will fight back. You leftists will NOT destroy America without a fight. We conservatives will save America and MAKE AMERICA SANE AGAIN. We will MAKE AMERICA PROSPEROUS AGAIN. WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN…. FOR ALL US CITIZENS!

      • Ty  •  Jun 26, 2018 at 4:00 pm

        Charity is NOT a replacement for good policy. How many times does this need to be explained to people? I'm sure the charity people give to third world countries does some good, but the way more people are brought out of poverty in the third world is to get them richer faster, and much of that comes from trade.

        Problem. Because labor costs in such countries are much lower, that inevitably shifts production away from places like the US where some industries are hit.

        Conservative solution = either nothing or perhaps now starting trade wars

        Liberal solution = more robust redistribution and retraining where possibly

        I am still dismissive of GOD, especially the christian god. I think ANY entity reportedly supportive and behind the ETERNAL TORTURE of human beings in a lake of fire for their finite crime of being mistaken in their beliefs about his existence and accepting jesus into their hearts is a WICKED MALEVOLENT – EVIL GOD.

        ETERNAL TORTURE. THAT is what your book says is the fate of BILLIONS of your fellow man. This vicious wicked malevolent God you worship does not even have the decency to let people die, oh no, NOT good enough. Of course many christians interpret other passages as Gods plan to merely extinguish people, it's a start, though since he's still god that is an awful fate for people being mistaken about his existence, or believing in the wrong god if the alternative is eternal life.

        It may shock you to hear this, but I am not hostile to all christians. I'll give you some time to pull the slackened jaw off the floor and cotton swab the drool (don't worry, the condescension will return shortly). I think religion, while based on false stories about reality, can be a force for good in peoples lives.

        The best example I've heard about its potential effects was by Ross Douthat talking to Bill Maher:

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJQjpG-lGY4#t=4m2s

        Ross is right, people can be pretty sh*tty to people regardless of what they believe, and sometimes religion can come along and lift people up out of their own darkness to something better than what they were. I also think that it's very possible that most people would do BETTER believing in a decent religion (no salafism!) than living the secular life like I do. But that's not because I think religion like christianity is some great blueprint to follow.

        It's because I think it might be a more effective blueprint to steer exceptionally flawed people to a better path. I think some people actually might need this cosmic sense of an allfather watching everything they do in life to be better. I think some people need the threat of ETERNAL torture or annihilation if they do not follow a more "righteous" path or need the bribes of eternal life to make it easier for people to deal with death and loss and move on.

        And here comes my condescension. This is not an endorsement of an ideal state to be in to me. It's a view that some people need to keep a set of training wheels on their bikes of life to function better and not crash into a wall as often. I still think it would be better if people could function and be as decent without such… constraints on their person, but that is not the world we live in. Human beings are filled with flaws, and the evangelicals ought to understand that most of all since they are some of the ones that are so antagonistic to the life of jesus and his example.

        I am happy to see you've made moral progress away from that form of guttural libertarian free for all conservatism. I won't ask you to admit that you are in favor of "socializing the cost" of caring for children at a wider scale with tax dollars and medicaid vs relying on the kinds of charitable giving to people in other countries, but that is precisely what it is, and it is BETTER than the alternative.

        So why am I so down on the evangelicals? Plenty of other christians believe in the same faith and jesus and dogmas, but they are also often more liberal. And that is the evangelicals problem. Conservatism has infected and corrupted the group.

        Let's go through your list of who is "worthy" of guaranteed "basic" medical aide via the government

        -children
        -mentally ill
        -handicapped

        You did include all americans having access to "subsistence" medical care, whatever that means, but I'll link that to something like free clinics. Free to patients if you make very little often, but free for some medical services.

        Where are the adults on that list? What happens to the adults if they are not mentally ill or handicapped and have medical needs that we know how to fix that are not subsistence level care?

        What you have described is second class care, for second class people. The conservatism that overpowers everything else in you and so many other conservatives, is a desire to have almost EVERY sphere in life be an area where peoples worthiness as human beings is measured and judged before any aide is given.

        Let's say Jesus was real and warped to modern times before his death. Imagine the Evangelical Conservative incarnation:

        He sees a man that is clearly sick, he earns too much to qualify for medicaid, say around 30k with is very little if living in a city alone, and also around where things like obamacare subsidies run dry (reason number 872 why universal healthare models are better and not these half measures). The treatment he needs might not be something a free clinic can provide him, but what luck for him, JESUS IS THERE !!!!!! He can HEAL HIM !!!!!!!!!

        HE IS ABOUT TO BE SAVED !!!!!!!! And then Jesus asks him:

        Jesus: Are you an adult? Are you mentally ill? Are you handicapped? No? Then no healing for you. I could do it, but you are not worth saving. Live, die, what's it to me?

        That, is the evangelical soul, right there. At its ESSENCE, this filthy conservative infestation of worth vs unworth, EVEN WHEN IT COMES to life and death for people we know how to save.

        I have made these arguments to you all before, you don't NEED to let those people die or wither, MOST of life has AMPLE opportunities for people who work harder and make more of an effort in life to receive greater rewards in life. Where you live, what kind of car you drive, how big your house is, how many vacations you can take, how much you can invest for your childrens future, how much you can afford to donate to others. ALL of these things can and SHOULD vary based on what people produce in life.

        Why is it SO F*CKING hard for you CONSERVATIVE EVANGELICALS to accept this ONE sphere of society, access to QUALITY healthcare, as something we as a society ensure people have access to, independent of anyones ability to pay? Is the THOUSAND other spheres in life where that matters NOT enough ?!!?!??!?

        Why? Why is that conservative desire to separate out the worthy and unworthy, that desire to pass judgment so DEEP in those rotted out husks you call souls?

        The liberals of this world tend to extend their concern more broadly. They still judge, but more often than not, they do not seek to balance the scales of peoples worth in life when it comes to whether they should get access to something like quality healthcare, even if they are not children or cripples, or mentally ill.

        They follow the example of Jesus BETTER than you evangelicals do in that different ethos of looking at peoples basic worth. Maybe the person that MIGHT have died had society not helped him had extra time to live longer and do better in life. Liberal christians want to extend that "grace" of a better chance at living longer, even to people who do not deserve the help, so that they might become better. But NOT the evangelicals. Your conservatism is in a constant twilight struggle to extinguish the grace extended outward by the teachings of that faith. And it manifests itself most clearly in the expanded circles of concern of a liberal vs the more shrunken circles of conservatives.

        The conservative circles are wide enough to encompass innocent children (the giant pandas of the human world), but when they come to the boundaries of adults having a harder time, that is where they often tap out whereas the liberals continue on to cover concern for them too.

      • Rizzo  •  Jun 26, 2018 at 4:44 pm

        So Ty… how much did you give to Insulin-Guy? Or, are you just going to blame the collective. Conservatives are supposedly all about "I got mine", but it turns out, so are you. "You got yours", but when you learned about Insulin-guy and his GoFundMe page, you did NOTHING.

        Why didn't Obamacare save him? Obamacare was Utopia, remember?

        It was just a lie…. another power-grab by government. If ONLY we gave a little more, if only government had a little more power, then HE WOULD HAVE LIVED. It NEVER ENDS with LEFTISTS.

        So ANSWER THE QUESTIONS TY!

      • Rizzo  •  Jun 26, 2018 at 4:50 pm

        Also Ty, ya moron…

        Instead of quoting absolute intellectual light-weights, how about educating yourself with the knowledge of a REAL THINKER, when it comes to concepts of religion?

        He's an atheist… just like you. But, this guy is actually open to logic, reason and facts. Plus, he sees right through the left's blind-hatred of religion and God.

      • Ty  •  Jun 26, 2018 at 6:43 pm

        Rizzo, I never knew the guy who needed insulin existed until after he was dead and his case gained wider attention. This is the PROBLEM with trying to rely on fickle and lumpy charity to deal with these kinds of issues. You can't shine a spotlight on all these cases.

      • Rizzo  •  Jun 26, 2018 at 7:00 pm

        No Ty… that's only half of an answer.

        I will find you some other ridiculous stunt of a GoFundMe page, then tell me how much you will donate. Answer, NONE… because "you got yours", and you are totally fine with people dying, waiting for BIG DADDY GOVERNMENT to save the world.

        Now, PART 2: Why didn't Obamacare save this guy?
        We were PROMISED, that once Obamacare was passed, NOBODY would die, we will ALL live FOREVER, and it would ALL be FREE to EVERYONE.

        Please explain what happened Ty!

      • Rizzo  •  Jun 26, 2018 at 7:25 pm

        Almost half of all money raised through crowdfunding is going toward medical expenses.
        Medical campaigns make up $930 million of the $2 billion raised on GoFundMe, according to NerdWallet.

        And Ty, since you CARE SO MUCH, how much did you help?
        NONE…. because you got yours!

        You must be looking to “help” with your eyes closed.

        These people are dying, because you prefer to hoard your money, and wait for incompetent, BIG DADDY GOVERNMENT TO SAVE US ALL.

      • Rizzo  •  Jun 26, 2018 at 7:51 pm

        Why would these oh-so caring LEFTISTS websites, wait until after the guy dies, to give him NATIONAL ATTENTION?

        It’s as if they wanted to use him as a pawn to further their socialist agenda.

        Hmmm? That couldn’t possibly be true, because Ty and his leftist ilk CARE SO MUCH!

      • Rizzo  •  Jun 26, 2018 at 8:20 pm

        Big EVIL CORPORATIONS!

      Ty, your democrat party supports a woman being able to kill her child moments before it is born. And it is the policies of your democrat party that have led to 50 million children being mirdered under a legally protected "right.". There is absolutely nothing you can honestly say about republican and conservative polices that is even 1% as bad as that. The blood of all of those children is on your hands and the hands of the democrat party and the hands of all liberal/regressives. And I won't mention that your party is the party of slavery/Kiki/Jim crow. But it is. You got nothing on us, buddy.

    So you want this anti trump, bankster clown on the Supreme Court. This mans wife helped lobby against allowing bank disputes from being in the courts, forcing the continuation of dispute resolution in FINRA and AAA arbitration. Ted Cruz is like the democrats on this

    Wow!!!! Such intellectual firepower!!!!! Who could still like Cruz after you laid out your case for hating him so well!!!!!

    Ty, you are such a hateful little person. The only reason you gave there for disliking Cruz is that he is willing to put Trump's insults behind him and move on. To people not consumed by hate, that would be seen as a virtue. Does it hurt to be so filled with irrational hate?

    And Trump is Trump. Trump has nothing to do with conservatism. In 2 or 6 years, Trump will be gone and we will be back to a republican candidate along the lines of the other 16 who ran against Trump.

    You have got to LOVE the lunatic left.

    These hypocritical parasites, go all the way to the supreme court, demanding that a person with sincere and deep religious beliefs, be FORCED to bake a cake for a gay "wedding"…. but now, feel righteous in kicking-out Sarah Huckabee Sanders from a restaurant? Why? I guess because she works for Trump.

    The left's hypocrisy has NO END! Too bad she isn't gay… the left would then be ALL befuddled how to twist themselves into something that produces a result they like.

    Who has seen the pics of the Obama Illegal Immigrant Concentration Camps of 2014?
    AKA The Internment camps…

    This is what happens, when you REFUSE to PROTECT OUR BORDERS!

    I guess this yet another Obama mess that Trump will have to clean up.

      Retard, your beloved Israel has the same “camps” as criminal Obama. Obama’s crap, statist “vision” is already in place in corrupt Israel.
      Stop calling me “retarded” because you were proved wrong and got caught lying.
      The solution to health care in America is to copy the Swiss model and eliminate the capital gains tax & institute a flat tax for self employed/business operator and extend it to all.
      Are you in favor of a fair, equal tax of 12% on uncle
      And zero on cap gains?

        oh look… its playtime at the insane asylum.

        Adolf, how much time do you get?

        You had better hurry, the men in white-jackets are coming. Playtime is over at The Looney-Bin!

        are you in favor of a badass military, that takes stands on important world-issues?
        a military that can promote and enforce its interests around the world?
        or, are you for swiss-army knives, appeasement and neutrality?

        what a puss!

        now grab a cup-o-swiss miss, swallow your happy pills and settle down for a long winter's nap, cuddled around a nestle's crunch bar.

    Time to take your pretty pink, white and orange pills, Adolf.

    Open wide and swallow!

    So I’m the nut job? You’re the one who said Africans states didn’t take the OECD PISA, you said Israel was “below” Switzerland in a ranking in the economist(you were wrong). You claim to be a conservative who doesn’t want a flat tax, tax rate reduction, or the free operation with federal licensing of health care providers. You also support the TARP bailout at the QE inflation of the equities market. But you claim to be a “conservative.” You’re a lying, psychotic religious nut.

      What is wrong with TARP? The money was all paid back. Sometimes the government needs to step in in an emergency. I don't see how that conflicts with conservatism. Conservatism says that the government should govern the least possible. The implication is that there is some level of governance necessary for a properly functioning society. Preventing economic collapse is a necessary function of government as is welfare psychological treatment for people like Tyrell, preferably in a hospital with locks and bars.

    “What’s wrong with TARP?” The money was “paid back” by increasing the amount of currency. The banks simply traded the zero interest band bond coverage into a market the fed pumped cash into and who managed the cash injection into the equities market….the banks.
    Now there are massive companies like amazon that don’t seek to make a profit, but dominate areas of the economy(retail) with their dominance coming in from the equity side but the efficient profit generation side.
    TARP was a disaster.
