It's just like how you temporarily die for a few hours every night but then get up the next morning and everything's fine.

"I temporarily, partially deprive oxygen to my brain every time I hold my breath while swimming, so I'm sure extending those 30 seconds to 3-5 minutes won't cause any serious or permanent harm."

I think a government shut down would be awsome, in fact we should shut it down right now starting with military pay, military contracts, and shipping of military supplies. Who needs that stuff? Right.

ManateeGag: Magorn: increase his chances of getting the nomination in 2016

he's still inelligable, regardless of what he tells you.  His father was born in Cuba and he was born in Canada.


But his Mother was a US citizen so he's totally "naturally Born" under the meaning of the term that is now accepted by the same people who are still donating money to Orly Taitz.

Yes, you say, but wouldn;t that make Obama eligible as well? Evenif he WAS born in Kenya?

No. Of course not, that's a totally different situation because
A) Obama was an inexperienced 1st term Senator with no executive experience
B) Obama was a LAWYER trained in the evil den of socialist indoctirnation called HARVARD
C) Obama had never had ANY job except being a lawyer
D) Obama's Mama was from HAWAII which hadn;t been a state for very long when she was born there and his father was KENYAN not CANADIAN.

 See the difference?

Using similar logic, were one to stop breathing it wouldn't a big deal.

After all, we already don't breathe for a time between inhaling and exhaling anyway, right?

A new breed of Republican moron... Still as selfish, mean-spirited, proudly ignorant, and regressive as the old model but without all the charm and communication skills.

Going to be fun watching the GOP get it's asses handed to them again in 2016.

This is what infuriates me about Ted Cruz:  He is NOT a Stupid man.   If this crap came from Steve King or Michele Bachmann, or Steve Stockman, I would believe that they actually believed something that stupid.  But cruz is a Harvard law Alum, with a pretty good W-L record arguing ccases in front of the US Supreme Court, which, whatever you feel about its current make-up, is no place for intellectual lightweihts (Clarence Thomas obviously excepted).

So Cruz KNOWS this is utter horseshiat.  He's playing pure demagogue and saying stuff that will rile up the credulous portions of his base that eat this crap up with spoon to increase his chances of getting the nomination in 2016, damage to the country be damned
