I think we may have found the antidote for the 2016 democrat ticket….

Rand/Cruz - Cruz/Rand or possibly Cruz/Rubio – Rubio/Cruz??

Hey, nobody knew Obama before the ‘anointed one’ took his throne. Cruz, Paul and Rubio are all making big waves and all have bigger national name recognition than Obama did in 2007.



Sounds like Obama was born in Kenya...and that doesn't seem to be a problem with liberal socialists.

By the way, what is Obama's legal birth name.....Soetoro or what?


Sounds nice but Cruz was born in Canada. That will be a problem for him.



Soetoro is his adopted name. There are suspicions he was born in Kenya but no proof and he provided a bc that says he was born in Hawaii. It's a fact that Cruz was born in Canada. Because he's a lawyer I bet he can argue his way around it, though.


It will be a problem for Cruz if he tries to get on the ticket. Arguing his birthplace would mess up his 'constitution' arguments and paint him in a bad light.

I know MSNBC is the dregs of cable news but its the only cable news channel I can get on my kitchen TV so I watch it during dinner. Its rarely relevant to the goings on of the political world but I did see Chris Mathews gushing praise( he is a messed up guy, isn't he? Completley without character or integrity) for Feinstein who is basically a fascist. He played the tape of Cruz and Feinstein and slammed Cruz, naturally. I thought Cruz leveled the old hag and she didn't in fact answer his question.
Now they're allocating an entire week glorifying the bartender who sneaked the video of Romney and his comments about the 47% who pay nothing. The election is over, stolen or not. It was sickening the way they made the guy out to be a hero and braving potential attacks from the right( that never happened) and brought on low life after low life and creep after creep on to praise him and offer political insights.
Fox isn't perfect but its vastly superior to the extremist anti american sewer that MSNBC has become.

Here's what you said clarified......you and millions others like you know absolutely nothing about who Obama is, where he came from, how he got here or exactly why he is here.

But you seem to think that Cruz and Rudio should be held to a higher standard of accountability than is Obama.

Yep. We got the picture a long, long time ago.

Obama (whomever he is or where he was born) is here to keep you socialist liberal antiwar protestors off the streets and content with your entitlement programs.

Fortunately for you liberal socialists and your entitlement programs, many or us are content that Obama is keeping Bush's war against terrorism going at an orderly pace. The OBusho foreign policy saga continues.

You antiwar protestors are nothing but a pain in the butt. We're glad you are staying home in your entitlement contentment. Because basically the tradeoff of granting welfare in order to whack the whacky terrorists is worth the trade.

Support the troops....hold your noses about welfare entitlement. It'll all work out in the final wash.

If you happen NOT to be a liberal socialist, don't take the truth personals. It's all business.

Diane Feinstein's supposed bill would allow a 12 gauge shotgun, but ban the same 12 gauge shotgun if it has a pistol grip.....and other ridiculous assertions by Senile Feinstein in her quest to outlaw the whole of the Second Amendment.

And liberal socialists wonder why the American public isn't falling for Feinstein's senility.


Not really that different from the fact that today, one can take a perfectly legal 12 gauge shotgun and shorten the barrel to the point that it becomes illegal, at least here in Texas. Or the fact that someone can take a semi-automatic MAC-11, place a penny inside the gun in the correct position and immediately convert the gun to fully automatic, also illegal here in Texas. The list goes on and on.

There are a lot of ways to convert a legal weapon into an illegal weapon and it would be foolish to overlook these facts when forming new legislation.

If you are a good and upstanding American citizen, you can make your gun sing and dance and win Dancing With the Stars.

Gunsmithing is a revived art form. Da Vinci made history inventing firepower. 3D printing technology is doing wonders in the creation of masterful weaponry.

America is NOT Canada, Mexico, Australia nor London. We are NOT giving up our Second Amendment. Liberal socialists have their entitlements. Okay, it makes them into couch potatoes covered with bags of Cheetos. They are NOT our responsibility.

I'm sure that with a little chemistry background, one could turn a bag of Cheetos into an explosive device. Whatever. I'm very happy to hear that liberal socialists want to keep themselves unarmed and vulnerable on on the couch watching bowling tournaments (Hey, it was good enough for the Big Lebowski).

Yeah, except for the fact that a copper penny and/or a hack-saw are hardly the tools of a gunsmith.

The point is that there are already numerous variances that can be done to perfectly legal weapons that immediately makes them illegal weapons. So why is it that back when those laws were put into effect, it didn't spell the end of the 2nd amendment and/or the beginning of gun confiscation in America?

The other day I was thinking about this shotgun I threw into the Atlantic gulfstream while marlin fishing. Damn Remington kept breaking down on me. I got tired of working on it. Tossed it into the salty brine.

I had so many other shotguns on the wall. WTH?

That was then. This is now. Good and upstanding Americans are learning not to take material objects for granted. There's competition for everything made of base metal. The hacksaw is a tool for gunsmithing. Necessity is the Mother of Invention.

HOMEMADE GUNS AROUND THE WORLD.

Outlaw the Second Amendment? Yeah. Sure. How about outlawing apple pie and baseball? It just doesn't happen. It's like gravity. It's here to stay. Quit jumping off roofs trying to change it.

Nothing personal at all. I am not a democrat. I like Cruz and applaud his persistence in getting answers and other threads I have posted this.

What I am saying is that Cruz, if he were to decide to run in the future, would have a problem with his birthplace being outside the US. He does not have military parents and his dad was not a legal US citizen yet when Cruz was born. His mom was, though. (And Obama's mom was, too) But the constitution says both parents must be US citizens at the time of his birth. Do you see what I'm getting at? The consitution states that a presidential candidate must be a natural-born citizen. Obama claims to be born in Hawaii but Cruz openly states he was born in Canada. I am not holding Cruz to a higher standard, Cruz has already done this himself by speaking truths. It would be neat if he could run. I have a feeling he would make much-needed changes to get us on the right path again.

I do agree that I have no idea who Barack Obama really is. You get no argument there. And I support the troops.

Bravo on the distraction and deflection, kid. Instead of talking about gun control or Cruz vs Feinstein, you try to invalidate it by going off concerning "progressives".

So let's refocus: Feinstein is, at minimum a "limousine liberal", how far up the leftist (communist) path she really goes, I don't know and neither do you. She didn't embrace the far-left as mayor of San Francisco, but whether or not that was because she had higher inspirations of public office at the time is open to interpretation.

So, let's talk guns. Feinstein likes to use Muscone and Milk as props in her stories about gun violence. Never mind that they were killed by a revolver, and she carried a revolver too until 1982 for protection.

So here's where it will all come together for you. Your girl Feinstein may not be a Progressive, but she is sure as Hell is taken care of by them. She came from SF, gets hugs and kisses and money from progressives who will run interference for her (like Uncle Bernie). Her "do as I say, not as I do" fits perfectly with the lefties regardless of scale.

Cruz certainly isn’t ineligible to be appointed US Attorney General in a Paul or Rubio administration.

That would be a nice fit for Cruz, me thinks!

You are playing politics wrong. You might give up a single elected official to be Pres or VP, but you don't put more into the cabinet for the simple reason that incumbents have a better chance at keeping their job. So removing them to do something else in the Executive just means more campaigns to be fought and lost.

Yes. I see perfectly what you're getting at.

Let me clarify. I'm an Independent. 91 million people didn't vote in 2012.

If in 2016 the Democrats hoist up a Venusian candidate for president, and the Republicans back a Martian candidate for president.....the side who can kick the other side's arse wins.

The Republicans have been wimps. Which is why the Kenyan won both times.

We're talking politics, here. Not Pin-the-Tail-on-the-Donkey. Obama created the new precedence that the prez no longer has to be American birth by American parents. The Prez can be Saudi Arabian, if the party with the best arse kickers decide to run an oil rich Saudi Sheik in 2016.

Obama is NOT impressive. John McCain was a fool. Obama was less impressive in 2012 and received ten million less votes than in 2008. Mit Romney got sold out by the whacky Evangelicals who wouldn't vote for him because he is Mormon.

The GOP has been the kicked around wimp the last two elections.

If the GOP learns how to kick arse with a vengeance, they can win by running a Canadian or someone from Greenland or whatever.

Can the GOP learn to kick arse? I dun'no.

There's more than one reason the Feinstein liberal socialists want to grab your guns...they want to grab your money next. Like the socialists did in Cyprus recently.


Get your money out of the banks.Due to an “emergency deal reached today in Brussels”, a one-time 9.9% tax is to be levied on Cypriot bank deposits of more than 100,000 euros effective Tuesday, March 19.

Virtually overnight and with no warning of any kind, the emergency tax deal was imposed on the people of Cyprus without vote or debate. People ran to ATM machines today only to discover that the taxed amount of their cash had already been frozen.

Senator Feinstein tries pose the question, Do citizens need "bazookas" or other high powered weapons.
Well, If certain entities are trying to infringe upon rights that are supposedly "guaranteed" by the constitution, wouldn't that constitute a situation where, for the exact reason of the 2nd amendment, the people need to retake there government, and perhaps, yes, need bazookas and high powered weaponry to achieve that goal? The amendment specifically says, "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." That is the entire amendment. SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. the people have a right to bear arms. These weapons they are trying to ban, are, by definition, arms.

Even in the context of the founding fathers, Wouldn't it seem a little unfair if the people tried to take back there government and could only use swords and axes, but the government could use muskets?

www.nambla.org...(goes off to shower having even been near this site)en.wikipedia.org...
care to give any examples of "pedophile" literature that is banned in America?NAMBLA(shudders even saying the name) is a political activist group that has been trying to encourage man boy love and as far as i know no law prohibits them from passing out this literature/pamphlets and they pretty much go around trying to get people to let old men bang Young boys....if we have such restrictions on the first amendment that you stated why are they allowed to say and advocate for what they do with out consequences,also of note the imagoes of nude children are not banned if has to be done in "an artistic fashion" and they are general accepted and tolerated despite the often nude portrayal of children

www.wnd.com...(read the site before going to any of links from it as they have their own separate warning on content their i did not check said links but thought the article did a good job explaining that there is a female version of nambla so its not just a creepy old man issue either

so i think the senator from Texas's opinion on the matter and how he phrased the question to diane finestine was spot on and far more on point then alot of the conversations on gun control have gone so far,he caught her in a position where she would either have to lie or deflect or state that her office is doing things unconstitutionally and with ill planned motives with her over all goal being to disarm all of America if she gets the chance...with politicans like ted Cruz she will fail in her goal wont stop her from trying though

I mean, far as I know, Cruz and Feinstein did not discuss pedophilia?

What the hell is this supposed to mean? I never said to "outlaw the 2nd amendment." What I said was that when sawed off shotguns were made illegal, (whatever year that was) it didn't result in the 2nd amendment being outlawed and neither will the banning of assault weapons today. Furthermore, there was no gun confiscation after the banning of sawed off shotguns either.

That's all just a bunch of fear mongering B.S. being propagated by your so called "intelligent," right wing Tea Party extremist movement. IMO, there is no such thing as an intelligent Tea Party legislator but after reading several of your other post in this thread, I have come to realize that you are also a "birther," which pretty much explains everything.
