If the thought of this demonic senator from Texas becoming our next president doesn’t scare the hell out of you, then nothing will. That is where his aspirations lie and there are a lot of stupid people who support him. The republic of Texas has become known for producing the most evil, idiotic idealogues ever to set foot on the national political stage. Remember George W. Bush and Rick Perry? If Texas wants to secede from the Union, I say “Good riddance!”
Ted Cruz, the love-child of Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter, came from relative Texan obscurity and, in just two short years, became the most controversial figure on Capitol Hill. Tea Party morons love him while everyone else hates and/or fears him. Only a junior senator with the backing of the Dark One could cause the federal government to shut down, costing America at least $24-billion in the process and, at the same time threaten the entire world with American insolvency.
Any intelligent American knows that Cruz is wrong for this country, but how to get rid of him is a problem exacerbated by the process of gerrymandering. Only the Texans who elected him can vote him out of the Senate, and that can’t happen until 2016. Cruz has received death threats via Twitter since the shutdown, but no one has yet attempted to take him out physically.
Ted Cruz and his followers are terrorists who have managed to do what Al Qaeda couldn’t… bring America to her economic knees. How do we deal with terrorists? We use drones to blow them to bits. So, when you wake up screaming from this nightmare – on Halloween and beyond – only thoughts of total annihilation of the tea party will allow sugarplums to once again dance in your dreams. Does anyone out there have a spell that would send these demons back to hell and seal the door shut for all time?
I’m a fiscal conservative but, if Cruz showed us anything, it’s that his way is the highway to oblivion. There are a lot of ways to cut federal spending that wouldn’t hurt us average Americans, but they never appear on the table. As for his cruz-sade against Obamacare, he should allow this law of the land to be implemented and play itself out before deciding that it’s wrong for the rest of us.
Happy Halloween, Everybody!
Florida: White man George Zimmerman was found NOT guilty of killing black teen Trayvon Martin AND he will get his gun back. Black woman Marissa Alexander gets 20 years for firing a warning shot toward her abusive ex-husband. What’s wrong with this red state? Asked and answered.
Egypt: After one year in office the first democratically-elected President, Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood Party, was ousted in a popular/military coup. The country is now on the brink of a civil war. This is what happens when you mix religion with politics.
Texas: Women seeking entrance to the state legislature were searched before being allowed to witness the re-vote of the anti-abortion bill. Their tampons, maxipads and condoms were confiscated but it’s okay to carry a gun into the chamber. Another wacky red state.
New York: Disgraced former state Attorney General and patron of elite escorts Eliot Spitzer is running for NYC comptroller. Flasher and former 9th district congressman, Anthony Weiner, is running for NYC Mayor. Obviously they have no shame.
Canada: 31-year-old Cory Monteith who played “Finn Hudson” on the hit show “Glee” was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room. Sad.
Canada: A train hauling 70 tankers of crude oil derailed in Lac-Megantic, Quebec, destroying the town and killing over 60 of its residents. This disaster is brought to you by the same people who insist that their proposed XL pipeline through the heartland of America can safely transport the dirtiest of all crude oil from Alberta to the Gulf of Mexico without leaking a drop.
Spain: A 23-year-old woman was gored in the back and suffered multiple rib fractures and damage to her right lung that left her in “very grave” condition during the annual “Running of the Bulls”. Four other runners were hospitalized with cuts and bruises. I wonder if they have health insurance. What a bunch of morons!
California: An anchor for KTVU-TV read the names of the pilots of Asiana Flight 214 that crash-landed in San Francisco. The NTSB had confirmed these names. Unfortunately for KTVU, it was a hoax. Try not to laugh too hard while reading the names out loud:
Captain Sum Ting Wong
Wi Tu Lo
Ho Lee Fuk
Bang Ding Ow
Brazil: 45-year-old Joao de Souza was killed when a 3,000 pound cow crashed through the roof and landed on the man while he and his wife slept. The cow had wandered away from her farm and walked onto the roof which abuts a steep hillside. The wife and the cow were unharmed.
News Note: Since Colorado and Washington State legalized marijuana eight months ago, the world hasn’t come to an end.
I feel so sorry for this pup. I think I would have opted to have her put down after her accident. Considering her horrible disfigurement, however, she seems to be handling it very well. She was quite a hero and has an indomitable spirit.
A few weeks ago, the GOP held their annual RNC meeting in Charlotte, NC to discuss their game plan for winning future elections. They decided to spend $10 million to improve their ground game and get their message out to young, female and Latino voters, but vowed not to change their principles, only the way they speak about them.
They could have saved all that money plus the millions they spent on their get-together by spending a mere 50 cents to ask Zoltar to predict their future. He would have told them that the only way they will ever come back from the jaws of defeat is to completely change everything they stand for (and against). Everything they are against, the rest of us are for… and vice-versa. Republicans are against:
Blacks and other minorities
The LGBT community
Saving the Earth
Veterans jobs bills
Lowering student loan interest
Wall Street & Bank reform
Small Business Aid
Campaign Finance Reform
Ending Tax Breaks for companies that Outsource Jobs
Cutting Corporate Loopholes
Ending Corporate Subsidies
A shorter list would be the things that republicans are in favor of: Lowering taxes for the 1% and raising them on everybody else. They are still the party of “NO”, the party of rich white men, and the party of hate and exclusion. Until they realize the error of their ways, they will continue to lose in the future. Zoltar has spoken.
One of my readers wanted to know more about the character Louie Pheeters on Gunsmoke. Because the Stranded Alien appreciates his readers and strives to give them what they want, here you go…
James Nusser (born in Cleveland Ohio in 1905) played various roles on radio’s Gunsmoke, but because he was an alcoholic in real life, most directors were reluctant to cast him. Six years after Gunsmoke moved to TV, however, producer Norman MacDonnel went out on a limb and cast Nusser in the role of Dodge City’s town drunk “Louie Pheeters”. Nusser truly blossomed in the role and Gunsmoke fans loved him. Most drunks on TV then were played by comedians, but Nusser’s lifelong struggle with alcoholism allowed him to bring total believability to the character of Louie.
I was watching an episode of Perry Mason one night recently and there was Nusser playing the part of the judge. He looked and sounded just like Louie except that he’d shaved, combed his hair and donned a robe. He appeared in a few films too including: It Should Happen to You (1954,debut), Hell Canyon Outlaws (1957), Hail,Hero! (1969) and Cahill: U.S. Marshal (1973) which was his last.
Sadly, he never received an Emmy or a nomination for his work on Gunsmoke, but he should have. James Nusser died (pre-embalmed) in Hollywood in 1979 at the age of 74. Here’s mud in your eye, Louie.
