3. A pleasure!

Chickenhawks. They've been the bane of our political existence for at least a generation or two.

They wanna sit back in their air conditioned comfy rooms and easy chairs and go "Rah-Rah-Rah! USA-USA-USA!" from the sidelines, while sending our sons and daughters out into harm's way. I would rather listen to someone who's been there. And done the dirty work. And seen - and experienced - the bloodshed and pain and horror first-hand. And got their hands dirty. And had skin in the game. Rather than some pansy-ass with nice soft clean hands who's never been there and can never know. You shouldn't send other people into hell unless you've been there yourself, and you thus FULLY UNDERSTAND and empathize with what you're asking of them.

Not just sympathy. EMPATHY. Empathy is when you've been there yourself. You've faced it yourself. You know - from hard horrifying first-hand experience! Not from easy chairs and weasel deferments and insulated, air conditioned offices and quiet, peaceful surroundings. And as we all know, the republi-CONS and CONservatives just don't do empathy. A pity, really. No wonder they're such warped human beings.

4. Did he mean "World of Warcraft"?

A shame to muck up a perfectly good tweet with half a word.

8. I don't think Cruz is another anything. He's an articulate and intelligent right winger.

Doesn't mean he isn't out to make as much money out of politics as possible though. So he's an opportunist who jumped on the Tea Party bandwagon and will likely jump off it before it hits the skids. Which its doing already.

6. Thank you Paul.

 

This right wing needs to go; or I'll never come back to this country.
