Morality is not determined by the church you attend nor the faith you embrace. It is determined by the quality of your character and the positive impact you have on those you meet along your journey
Sadly, Ted Cruz (and those who support him) advocates for a pseudo-christiany dominionist theocracy is simply preparing the way for a real life American Idiocracy.dowl
"American Idiocracy." Brilliant term.Impossible to deny the idiocy of so many Americans when a psychotic, blowhard promises "winning" (no specifics, ever) to angry voters who haven't been able to do so in Congress against Obama, even if they have health care and jobs thanks to his stewardship. They remind me of prisoners who would destroy their own toilets to make their point.But Bernie's decisive win gives me hope. Will (can?) the media now take him seriously? We'll see.
Though he attended some good schools, the concept of the American Enlightenment and the Revolution it led to, seems to have escaped him.'...the American Enlightenment applied scientific reasoning to politics, science, and religion, promoted religious tolerance, and restored literature, the arts, and music as important disciplines and professions worthy of study in colleges. The "new-model" American style colleges of King's College New York (now Columbia University), and the College of Philadelphia (now Penn) were founded, Yale College and the College of William & Mary were reformed, and a non-denominational moral philosophy replaced theology in many college curricula.'https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Enlightenment
And the idiots who want to put him in office will just say that isn't what he wants to bring back. Yeah, right! Like I'm supposed to be comforted by that? Especially since he would want to put judges on the SCOTUS who would agree with him? S-u-u-u-re. Pull the other one.
He is as phony as his father, with his religious crap. A group is following him around, trying to perform an EXORCISM on him!! Great. Send him and his Daddy back to Canada, we have enough religious pretenders already. Kasich claims God helped him also, too.
He looks so awkward in that photo.
They always throw in "judeo," but they don't mean it.
I just realized something. (Sorry, I don't see too well until I've had a couple of cups of waker-upper-juice.) The way that jackass is looking upward and shaking his fist makes it look as though he is either pissed at his god or is telling his god what that guy HAS to do. He's arrogant enough to do that, too!
Damn you, God! You said you'd make me President!!
His citizenship issue are now a thing of the past it seems.
I don't think so, if he keeps losing, the powers that be will keep quite, if it looks like he will get the nomination things will come out.
If there ever was an anti-christ.....it would look like ted, the dread, cruz, sound like him too. To watch this man, to hear him speak with his dramatic pauses, facial expressions, emphasis on pulling the wool over our eyes makes me want to lurch.....politics smell like puke these days
Donald Trump made a complete break from reality in his New Hampshire victory speech by declaring that the unemployment numbers are a lie, and unemployment is really 42%.Trump said, “I am going to be the greatest jobs president that God ever created. Remember that. Don’t believe those phony numbers when you hear 4.9 and 5 percent unemployment. The number is probably 28-29 as high as 35. In fact, I even heard recently the number may be as high as 42%. Do you think we’d have a gathering like? If we had 5% unemployment, do you think we’d have gatherings like this?”Donald Trump also proclaimed that the American people are miserable with Obamacare, and generally gave a speech that was full of empty self-hype, paranoia, and delusion. In other words, it was a typical Donald Trump speech. It is easy to brush off Trump as just another paranoid loon, but this paranoid loon just won the New Hampshire Republican primary and is leading the delegate count for the nomination.Trump is a symptom of the larger Republican disease. Donald Trump can call the unemployment numbers fake because Republicans no longer believe in facts. If Republicans disagree with a fact, they proclaim that the fact isn’t real. http://www.politicususa.com/2016/02/09/trump-goes-paranoid-loon-in-nh-victory-speech-and-declares-employment-numbers-a-lie.html

Bernie Sanders Rocks The Political And Economic Establishment With Electric NH Victory Speech Sen. Sanders said, “Together, we have sent a message that will echo from Wall Street to Washington and from Maine to California that the government of this great nation belongs to all of the people and not just a handful of wealthy campaign contributors and their super PACs.”In a rousing speech, Sanders made it clear that his Granite State victory was a message to the political and economic establishment, “Tonight, we served notice to the political and economic establishment of this country that the American people will not continue to accept a corrupt campaign finance system that is undermining American democracy and a rigged economy in which ordinary Americans work longer hours for lower wages while almost all new income and wealth goes to the top 1 percent.”http://www.politicususa.com/2016/02/09/bernie-sanders-rocks-the-political-and-economic-establishment-with-nh-victory-speech.html

"...It was miraculous. It was almost no trick at all, he saw, to turn vice into virtue and slander into truth, impotence into abstinence, arrogance into humility, plunder into philanthropy, thievery into honor, blasphemy into wisdom, brutality into patriotism, and sadism into justice. Anybody could do it; it required no brains at all. It merely required no character." (34.16)from Joseph Heller's Catch 22Bette Midler tweets: "With credit.""For years, Republicans have been hypocrites when it comes to lawbreaking, claiming that it’s okay when white conservatives use their guns to seize federal property or use their bibles as an excuse to violate the rights of others. In other words, they want us all to think of these vices as virtues."The “slander into truth” part is pretty easy since Republicans have been lying about liberals and liberal policies throughout the last eight years while insisting that they are telling the truth."Republicans have also disguised arrogance as humility, although they really aren’t hiding it anymore."The way conservative donors like the Koch brothers use pretended philanthropy to give themselves more power is one of the more disgusting aspects of Republicans today, and it was perfectly described by Heller."Republicans have also pretended for decades that stealing from the poor to give to the wealthy is honorable, but it’s only caused great suffering among the American people as the middle class shrinks and families struggle to put food on the table."Donald Trump and Ted Cruz have made it very clear during the GOP primary that they intend to bring back torture, which they think is a patriotic and just way of fighting the war on terror. For years, Republicans have displayed fake patriotism while at the same time sending our troops to their deaths in wars for profit and once our troops come home, they refuse to take care of them. This is evident in their blockage of bills that would aid veterans and first responders."And finally, the conservative support of the death penalty and cops who kill unarmed black men are the ultimate examples of how Republicans see sadism as justice."Make no mistake, this paragraph from Joseph Heller is downright prophetic, and Bette Midler did us all a favor by bringing it to our attention."from http://www.addictinginfo.org/2016/02/10/bette-midler-sums-up-the-republican-party-in-one-amazing-tweet-everyone-should-read-image/

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small. The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible. The little girl said, 'When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah'. The teacher asked, 'What if Jonah went to hell?' The little girl replied, 'Then you ask him'.
Don't tell us, you heard that cute little "joke" at church. Ha ha ha ha! It's actually a perfect example of when and why a disrespectful, smart alecky brat should get the shit slapped out of them by a parent or teacher.Have a nice day.
A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was. The girl replied, 'I'm drawing God.' The teacher paused and said, 'But no one knows what God looks like' Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, 'They will in a minute.'
Chris Matthews: ‘There is a troll-like quality to Cruz — he operates below the level of human life’...“I think he appeals to people’s negativity rather than their joy,” Matthews observed. “I don’t think people feel good about voting for Cruz.”“What is he? A theocrat? Maybe he is,” the Hardball host continued. “There’s something about that guy who has always reminded me of Joe McCarthy, and there’s something about him that’s negative and menacing.”“When I say below the level of human life, I mean the good nature of human life, not just being a person.”http://www.rawstory.com/2016/02/chris-matthews-there-is-a-troll-like-quality-to-cruz-he-operates-below-the-level-of-human-life/
there’s something about him that’s negative and menacing.”---------What an understatement.Cruz's speeches are full of violence. I wouldn't be surprised if he spent time pulling wings off of flies or torturing animals when he was younger.I think we have another candidate that needs a complete psychiatric evaluation.
Reports: Christie Expected To Drop Out Of The Racehttp://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/cnn-chris-christie-drop-out
The operative word is "Judeo", because there's NOTHING Christian about Cruz or those values of his.
Perfect, it fits him to a "t", Looks like he's rapture ready. Do they rapture jackasses, just asking because this mule somehow reproduced. He must be the anti christ.
He appears to really be giving God a piece of his mind. And I'd bet that really put the fear of Ted into God.
Don't feed the trolls! It just goes directly to their thighs.
