And the American people say :

ted cruz2

So just who is Ted Cruz ‘listening’ to?

The little voices in his head telling him this is how he will become President?

Crippling America while the teabaggers cheer?

Remember when Congress use to govern?

It was only 3 years ago…….

Not anymore.

‘Regular order’ is a thing of the past as teabaggers lead by Ted Cruz want to know pass funding legislation for each department – one – at – a – time.

———————————–

‘Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Friday that the House should pass a government funding measure for only the military if the Senate sends back a spending bill that does not defund ObamaCare’.

“I hope they respond to the Senate, if Harry Reid does try to force a government shutdown, by passing one continuing resolution (CR) after another funding each specific piece of government, starting off with funding the military,” Cruz said on Fox News’.

  2. I think somebody ought to introduce a resolution to disenfranchise the GOP as a legitimate political entity because it has – – in my opinion – – long since passed where it once was and what it was originally intended to be. In my personal opinion this party has now become what we used to call “Subversive” when I was a kid in High School and Senator McCarthy was looking under every rug for “Communists” in the government and everywhere else.

    As I recall, “Communists” were supposed to be all about destroying The American government and replacing it with their own kind of government.

    Isn’t one of the wish dreams of the GOP-ers to grab total control of the government on a permanent basis?

    • As to the GOPers wanting one party rule : Grover Norquist – “We will make it so a Democrat wan’t be able to govern as a Democrat’.

      As to ‘disenfranchising’ the GOP….with all of the money in politics, it would be impossible to abolish any political party.
      Individuals and corporations guide our political process and are aided by the likes of FOX and Conservative Talk Radio.
      Until ( and I don’t see it happening in my life time) we break the grip that misinformation and disinformation (see the Vietnam War) have on our ‘news’, we are doomed to extremists dominating the political process via FOX and Conservative Talk.

      The only, ONLY way to fight misinformation and disinformation is exposing it.

      • I thought I remembered that back in the times of the McCarthy era somebody in Congress or somewhere were able to outlaw the American Communist Party.

        Is that true or am I just imagining that?

      • Ah John, it’s Sunday and you’re making me work (GRINS!)
        ‘Aug 24, 1954’:
        ‘Congress passes Communist Control Act’

        ‘Congress passes the Communist Control Act in response to the growing anticommunist hysteria in the United States. Though full of ominous language, many found the purpose of the act unclear’.

        ‘The Communist Control Act made it clear that “nothing in this section shall be construed as amending the Internal Security Act of 1950.” Thus, while the Communist Control Act may have declared that the Communist Party should be outlawed, the act itself did not take this decisive step’.

        ‘In the years to come, the Communist Party of the United States continued to exist, although the U.S. government used legislation such as the Communist Control Act to harass Communist Party members. More ominously, the government also used such acts to investigate and harass numerous other organizations that were deemed to have communist “leanings.” These included the American Civil Liberties Union, labor unions, and the NAACP. By the mid-to-late 1960s, however, the Red Scare had run its course and a more liberal Supreme Court began to chip away at the immense tangle of anticommunist legislation that had been passed during the 1940s and 1950s. Today, the Communist Party of the United States continues to exist and regularly runs candidates for local, state, and national elections’.

      • Has it taken on a new name – – – like GOP for example?

        Sorry about making you work on a Sunday. It just seems to me like someone ought to see the subversive potential in some of the stuff the crazies in GOP-er Land are trying to pull and that maybe somebody who worries about the stability of our country might make enough of an issue about it to get some public outcry stirred up and maybe see a repeat of that “Control” act you have referenced.

      • John you’re not alone. You see it. I see it. Millions see it but our politics is driven by $$. Money from individuals and corps and profiteering via FOX, Rush, Beck, Hannity.
        Just 5 months ago the Senate couldn’t even pass expanded background checks. It would be impossible to enact anything like the 54 Communist Control Act today.
        But given enough ‘rope’ and enough exposing of the misinformation and disinformation, more and more people are seeing what the extreme right (and the rank and file Republicans by accepting) is doing as very near treason.

      • when i was in the military – – twice – – i was taught that any seditious act or any action that smacked of anarchy or any threat to the stability of The American Government was, in fact, an act of treason. I swore an oath – – as did a few million of my fellow persons in uniform to defend the Constitution and to odefend the nation against all threats from without and within by any means deemed legally permissible under orders from The President for the sake of national security – – and today we are battling an enemy from within that threatens the security of the nation – – and if that isn’t enough to become grounds for scuttling this so-called party nothing is – – in my opinion.

        I am watching a scene develop here that reminds me very much of Germany in the 30s and early 40s – – economic collapse, religious interference in government, a dissident populace, a worthless Mark, widespread unemployment, hunger and poverty, and a screaming new brown-shirted right wing political faction offering the promise of a New Future that would last for at least a thousand years – – – you know the rest.

        Did the people buy it? They elected their leader didn’t they? There was no coup – – they won that one in a popular election – – complete with all the voter suppression and gerrymandering we are becoming familiar with today – –

        I am afraid that if we are not careful we are going to wake up one day to a Theo-Centric Rightist Republic run by a trio of spiritually-corrects to whom all other agencies report and whose decisions are final and whose decisions are reflective of the archaic laws before the times of the New Testament.

        I am already hearing rattlings of that mentality from some of their “seers” who go so far as to blame natural disasters on rampant homosexuality – – secularism – -political incorrectness – – blah blah blah.

        Tyranny comes wrapped in a flag with a Bible in one hand and a gun in the other and that perfectly describes “THEM” in my book.

      • Agree completely.
