Ted Cruz In Iowa Claims Shutdown Was Worth It

Ted Cruz In Iowa Claims Shutdown Was Worth It

Commented Oct 26, 2013 at 13:59:09 in Politics

“The antics of Ted Cruz reminds of another senator from the 50's, that being Joe McCarthy. Like McCarthy, Cruz makes statements that are not based on fact. I am surprised that the GOP has not had the balls to stand up to Cruz. His irresponsible behavior has cost us all about 23 billion during the government shutdown. Until Cruz and other members of congress have to go out and secure their own health insurance, which is not available to every citizen, they are all a bunch of hypocrites.”

“Where I live, we not only lost CBS, Showtime, today, but last week we lost NBC in dispute that TWC had with Journal Broadcasting, the owner of the NBC local station. I must admit that I am very discouraged with TWC and considering alternatives. I am also a Showtime subscriber and completely pissed that those channels were pulled off as well, for which we pay extra. TWC did nothing when they dropped NBC last week and didn't even offer a substitute from San Diego or Los Angeles affiliates. But what is really bothersome is the Jeff Bewkes, TW CEO, received $25.9 in compensation last year.”

“Given that kind of service, why don't you cancel? If people did, cable companies could never get away with treating paying customers like that.

I never have had cable. I couldn't be bothered with it.”

“that should read "$25.9 million"”

“For this clown to make any reference at all in this matter just proved he is a homophobe. He is neither a christian or compassionate person given his views on the matter. Why isn't he more outraged by the divorce rate in this country, that the straight community has singlehandedly seen to its continual climb?”

“"Be very careful that you know what your fees are going for because the AARP is not on your side," Smith added. "If you are a Christian and believe in Biblical values, you can pretty much count on the fact that everything that you are in favor of, the AARP is opposing."

How UnChristian can this group get? I have seen their behavior go down the road of hate and bigotry personified.”

“First off the number of one million is a complete fraud... try about 50,000. Secondly networks don't bow to hate mongers likes this group. Networks bow to ratings, plain and simple. They simply don't have the economic clout they claim.”

“Isn't spiritual warfare the equivalent to a jihad? I never thought she was a muslim but I don't mean to insult muslims by lumping in Michele....”

Jeremy Bursac on May 14, 2013 at 01:12:40

“"Jihad" actually means struggle...usually as in to do one's best. The war mongering part is sort of a sub category, which of course is constantly privileged over the more general meanings by the mainstream media.

I think "spiritual warfare" has a narrower range of meanings, all fundamentalist.”

“I think that Chuck's toupee is on a little too tight... yes that is a toupee. Chuck's hair dye has also seeped into his brain and he has lost all common sense. When they article refers to Chuck is ageless, they seemed to overlook the fact that he has been lying to us about who he really is in order to sell his Total Gym. He, along with Ms. Bachmann, have lied continually to the American citizens about a complete smorgasbord of issues and don't really know the complete interpretation of the American Constitution.”

“Trying to blame the president doesn't work, since congress makes/writes the laws and does the budget. This shows you that members of congress don't want to take responsibility for their actions or lack thereof. I feel that members of congress shouldn't be paid for their service if they have not done their jobs. They should not receive any form of benefits until the job is completed. If that were the case I would bet we would see a lot of compromise and a smoother working government. But most importantly, they should not be allowed to complain or critique the sequester since they created the situation.”

“Michele Bachmann, please pick up the white courtesy phone... we have a relative of yours in Georgia. This Everhart woman seems to forget that all the marriages that have fraudulently occurred for immigration benefits over the years. How many marriages a year are done in order for people to get their citizenship, while the US citizen is being paid to keep up the charade? The other thing that is mind boggling is that she doesn't understand how gay people have sex. I guess she doesn't know how to have sex either...”

“That's rich that Ms. Palin is thinking of relaunching her career when she couldn't stick it out to finish her term. That must mean that her check book is running low since she ws fired from FOX. What I find even more hysterical is that she likes to think of herself as a "kingmaker". Kingmaker of what?”

“I find it rich that any member of congress would blast anyone for vacation time. This group of citizens has taken more vacation time over the last 6 months than any working individual out there in the work force does in four years. Plus congressman King has not introduced any legislation or worked to come to some form of compromise on the budget and spending bills. The congressman is such a hypocrite for making unfounded remarks while he is on vacation.”

“Bachmann is what I refer to as a wingnut Republican. Most of her stances are not based on fact but based on some sort of flight of fantasy and unsubstantiated conservative myths. I will never forget her stance opposing the HPV vaccine and said that a lady after the debate came up and said her daughter had the vaccine and became mentally disabled. She never bothered to do any research to see that there has never been one reported case of what she claimed. The lady that she talked to has never been identified either.”
