70. Cruz is a religious zealot.

Zealots are dangerously delusional and will not hesitate to use the most devious or brutal means to achieve their goals. Cruz is obviously driven by his perception of himself as being a divinely appointed savior. The disturbing increased influence of the extreme evangelical movement should be a cause of concern since it doesn't appear that there is concentrated effort to counteract their influence. Even if he is not elected, their influence, in part, contributed to the disastrous Bush presidency.

This formidable block of dedicated zealots are a real danger that continues to be ignored as being a real threat. They subscribe to the philosophy of survival of the fittest coupled with their adherence to dominionists concepts with a determination to impose their will on American society transforming it into a virtual theocracy. It appears that they are immune to any significant criticism relaying on an unwillingness of the MSM or opposing candidates to challenge their protected religious beliefs.

I don't know who Stephanie Miller is, either. I live mostly in Europe these days. When my book was mentioned on Thom Hartmann's show, I was thrilled, especially since I know who he is! I used one of his books for some inspiration of a few passages in my book.

Here are some musical parodies I have either done myself or been heavily involved over the last 10 years. You tell me.........

I haven't even been back to the studio to record new music since 2012, much less had the time to think up new videos. I'm sure that will change this year, though. Plus getting all the Freedom Toast guys (and women!) into one place at the same time requires more advance planning than a Netanyahu visit to Mecca.

48. I haven't watched every minute yet, but my...

...compliment stands. You are very skilled.

Stephanie Miller is a very liberal comedienne, and an out-and-proud lesbian. She has a radio show on a Chicago channel, WCPT, from 8-11 every morning. She is also the daughter of William Miller, who was Barry Goldwater's VP running mate back in the 60s. Her apple fell pretty far from the tree.

In the states, you can listen to her show on line thru the WCPT radio site. I don't know if that would work in Europe. She can be quite funny, and her techie guy is a hoot.

I am not making that up, while avoiding the fact the young captive, forced to attend audience was bored to either tears or were sleeping.

CNN IS the Catholic-Judeo News Network.

How many at CNN HQ are also with the whole End Times theme?

31. Hey, I did Dr. Seuss and Cruz years ago! Evidence provided:

He said, „Cruz.“ I said, “Lose!”
That Cruz-you-lose, that Cruz-you-lose.
I do not like that Cruz-you-lose.

“Do you like my phony ruse?”
I do not like your phony ruse.
I do not like it, Cruz-you-lose.

“Would you like it as a bore?
“Like it on the Senate floor?”

I would not like you, crashing bore,
I hate you on the Senate floor.
I do not like your big fat head.
I do not like it, Ted-so-red.

Would you like it bit by bit?
Would you like it full of shit?

Not with shit, not one bit,
Not as a bore, not on the floor
I do not like your big swelled head
I do not want it, live or dead.
I don’t care for your phony ruse.
I do not like it, Cruz-you-lose.

Would you try it blowing smoke?
Would you like it served by Koch?

Not with smoke, not by Koch
Not with shit, not one bit
Not as a bore, not on the floor
I do not like your right wing blues
I do not like it Cruz-you-lose.

“You don’t like it, so you say.
“But listen one time, and you may.
“Listen, and you may I say!”

Ted, if you will let me be,
I will listen and you’ll see.

SAY! You really ARE quite full shit!
I like your drivel not one bit!
You really are a crashing bore!
You don’t deserve the Senate floor!
And I won’t listen in the dark.
I can't stand your slimy snark.
And I would put you in a box
‘Cause you are stupid as an ox
And you deserve to wheeze and choke
Since you are only blowing smoke
All financed by the Brothers Koch,
All your future prospects dead,
Go put THAT in your big fat head!
We don’t fall for your phony ruse.
We do not like you, Cruz-you-lose.

They would probably prefer Jeb, but his false veneer of rationality and competence would turn off the GOP base.

They want a frother like Cruz, not another Mitt or Papa Bush.
