Cruz Control? Part II

As long as the media is allowed to frame the debate for the Democrats, conservatism will continue to lose. But when no one reads, no one watches, no one listens to the leftist media, and their financials show they have little to no effect, they will stop. Dr. Sowell is smart enough to know that the media will do what it takes to stay in business, and if that means bashing Democrats because they no longer have any clout, they will. Let the NYSlimes, the LASlimes and the Washington Post go out of business due to lack of readership and advertisers because America no longer trusts them and see how quickly the rest of the press turn on the Democrats.

Cruz Control? Part II

"Senator Cruz's filibuster last year got the Republicans blamed for shutting down the government -- and his threatened filibuster this year forced several Republican Senators to jeopardize their own reelection prospects by voting to impose cloture, to prevent Cruz from repeating his self-serving grandstand play of last year." Dr. Sowell, make no mistake; the only reason Cruz, and the GOP, got blamed for the shut down was due to the Democrats, and the American press. Schools remained open, one could still go to the grocery store, the gas station, their jobs. No one noticed. The Dems got their [false] message out and the media parrots repeated it. What you don't seem to like is that Ted Cruz shows up the spineless Republicans, like Boehner, for what they are. Awwww, too bad. And you don't like his style/tactics. Again, too darn bad. The Dems didn't have the votes for cloture on the debt ceiling, Cruz knew that, and he showed the spineless Republicans for who they are. News flash!! That is what we Texans sent him to D.C. to do. Someone has to stop the Democrat train that is rolling over spineless Republicans and why you object to that defies logic. Have you lost touch with the every man that you have been so famous for? When did you decide that it is better to go along-to get along than it is to fight for what is right and what are the values of the every man? Boehner and bunch are taking us down a slippery slope with their failure to stop the hydra that is coming if they continue their policy of appeasement. It has to end. You speak as if the incumbents don't win, the Democrat opponent will. Why is that? What makes you think that a challenger in the primary who defeats the incumbent can't take the election? And if the Dem wins, exactly what is the difference between Democrat and Democrat lite except for few degrees of liberalism?

Wendy Davis Lies, Media Snores

The Texas Leg is in session only a couple of months every two years. That is the only time Representatives are required to be in Austin instead of their own districts. Yesterday, it came out that Davis has spent $2,000-$3,000/month for a tony high rise apartment in Austin since she was elected in 2008. And she used campaign funds to pay for the apartment. The average cost of a one bedroom apartment in Austin, even in a really nice neighborhood, is under $1,000/month. Texas Dems will forgive her for being a gold digger, for abandoning her small (8 & 2) children to traipse off to Harvard, for dumping a husband that stood by her as she furthered her education but the question is; will they forgive her for being such a prima donna that she required a tony, expensive apartment with concierge service making her look like what the Dems claim the evil Republicans are?
The Rovians are going to continue to push some northeastern liberal squish on the rest of the nation, and continue to lose elections. Not only are these people convinced of their superiority, they are just butt stupid.

Maybe Ms. Chavez would like to defend the dozen plus illegal immigrants who raped, repeatedly, a 13 year old girl in Austin, Texas recently. Who knows, maybe they were brought here as children and just didn't realize that raping a child is not nice?

How about this: we build a fence where we can, and puts boots on the ground where we cannot. Then we notify Mexico that anyone caught crossing the border from their side packing drugs, and arms, will be given one chance to return to their side or we shoot them? And for every person that crosses illegally into the U.S. from Mexico, we deduct $1 million from the foreign aid we give them every year? Nothing says "Getting serious" than hitting them in the wallet.

Then obviously there are two things you don't know; the flow of the Rio Grande, and the amount of water to sustain cattle. Or do you think that cattle troughs are all millions of gallons of water. And since you have been to the Rio Grande, I guess you have also stayed at a Holiday Inn, as well? Get back to this Texan when you know what you are talking about.

One other thing; if you build the fence not down the middle of the Rio Grande, but on the Texas land side, that simply concedes the Rio Grande to Mexico. Texas law states that if I build a fence ten feet into your land that adjoins mine, and you do nothing about it, after ten years, your ten feet of land becomes mine.

Mr. Hewitt, just one question: how would you build a fence at the international border in the middle of the Rio Grande river? Most of Texas borders Mexico at the Rio Grande. The international border runs right smack dab down the middle of that river. And you are ignoring a couple of other things: first, ranchers in the Texas border counties depend on the water from the Rio Grande for their cattle. You know, those cattle that provide you with a Wendy's hamburger. And when the SCOTUS passed Kelo, Texas passed stricter eminent domain laws to protect Texas land owners from over reaching land grabs. Do you deny those ranchers the only water they have access to? I'm not saying it can't be done. But it is not as simple as building a fence as you think. Don't get me wrong; I want a fence. But I also want individual property rights honored and I don't want the government telling Texans "Sorry, we know you paid for that land, but we're gonna take it anyway to build a fence on it." Perhaps someone needs to tell Congressman Cotton that building a fence in the desert is one thing; building it down the middle of the river is quite another.
MoveOn.org had a web page devoted to campaign donations for Wendy Davis. George Soros minions all across the nation coughing up $10-20 to help the Wicked Witch of The West, Wendy. Did her gain have anything to do with the fact the MO web page appeared the day after she showed her A S S in the Texas Senate? (scratching head)
They know they didn't kill a baby. It was just a clump of cells. How do they know? The abortionist who makes over $1 mil a year told them so.
