Give it up, Cruz. You farking lost. Stop trying to fark over the country because you don't understand economics and what really is screwing over the people you're supposed to represent. If you want to be in the government, you shouldn't be trying to kill it while you're there

He's afraid of being primaried because the loudest minority in his party looks at compromise and negotiation as putting a burqa on the Statue of Liberty, reducing our Navy to one wooden dinghy powered by burning Bibles and spending 60 trillion dollars to put a giant cartoon word balloon over Mount Rushmore with all presidents saying "We love Atheist Sharia Law!"

The people Senator Rafael Cruz (A Cuban with Canadian Citizenship who like to be called "Ted" in memory of Ted Kennedy) represents WANT to be screwed over. He will not lose a single vote in the next election over this.

Is the secret Canadian STILL trying to deflect concerns about his real citizenship?

Because all he's has to do is prove he is a bona fide US citizen and fill out a 15-question form.

Can we take a break from bashing Cruz for a moment... and focus on mocking this picture?

Moved to Texas a few years ago.  It's not just nut jobs, you have a huge population that might even hate Cruz but they never vote in Republican primaries but will ALWAYS vote straight party Republican in the general election.

I would pay good money for that, just so I could wear it while getting ass raped in the middle of Times Square.

Because for every idiotic troll there's dozens even more idiotic posters who get chubs because it's finally their day to shine and outsmart someone on the internet.

What does BOB think about all this?

/NY Times stylebook for the last 150 years: first reference, use the person's title; every reference thereafter use "Mr", "Mrs" or "Miss".

The country is struggling. People are suffering through a bad economy. A cold war between half a dozen different groups is developing in the Middle East. In these tough times, people look to our elected officials to provide the strong leadership needed to help the country pull through.

But McConnell is facing a primary challenge, and Boehner has no real control over his own caucas. So we're just going to make some token action to pander to the base instead. If the economy collapses, it's really the fault of the Dems for not giving in to our every demand.

God bless America!

Sincerely,
The GOP

Aside: I have a client whose website I'm restyling. Not only is the company/brand name used repeatedly in almost all of his copy, he hashes it with ® on every single occurrence. I keep telling him first reference is all you need, but he won't budge. He insists it violates his own copyright if the ® isn't there.

Which is why I drink...

I never thought of it that way, I thought people were naive to the trolls' actions... shows how naive I am...

I agree, but thing is, I actually don't understand what his gimmick is.  What exactly is he trying to do?  He's so obvious that he's identifiable.  His posts are sub-par at best.  And none of the things he's trying to do make any farking sense.  So what is his gimmick?

You might want to infrom him that a Trademark isn't a Copyright, he seems a bit confused.
