    Glad to see you doing better.

    Please take me off the Tech Pinglist - I am not here enough to worry about, and that’s not going to change.

    Please take me off your ‘Shroud of Turin’ Pinglist. I am not here enough to matter, and I do not see that circumstance changing in any way.

    Thanks. I replied to the same post but the mods took mine down and rezeroed me like a new account. I guess I’m just too conservative and too politically incorrect.

    No problemo... ;)

    Sorry I took so long replying - I'm not here very much anymore.

  • TED CRUZ DOESN'T TITHE ! ! (and Charlie don't surf...)

    Old news. Huckabee hacked him for it a long time ago.

    Cruz's response:

    In an interview with CBN News this week, Cruz admitted that he and his family have fallen short on tithing. "I will readily admit that I have not been as faithful in this aspect of my walk as I should have been," Cruz said in response to recent reports that his income tax records indicate that he has only given one percent to charity from 2006 to 2010. "That article focuses on 10 years. We don't have the ability to go back and change what occurred 10 years ago when Heidi and I were newly married and we'd just started a family. But at the end of the day, being a Christian is not about holding yourself out as righteous," Cruz asserted. "It's about beginning with the understanding that we are flawed sinners and we are saved not by deeds but by Christ's redemption. I am grateful that God is a patient and forgiving God and this area, as in many areas of my life I am working to do a better job walking in my faith."

    Christian Post: Ted Cruz Slammed as Phony Christian for Not Tithing -By Samuel Smith , CP Reporter January 28, 2016|12:04 pm

    (emphasis mine)

    I wasn't any good at tithing when I was newly married and building a home and family either.

    It goes to the core of what your priorities are.

    Yes, it most certainly does.

    Are your priorities putting this country back to work, back to the path to prosperity? OR are they on fighting social conflicts to the bitter end?

    There is not a single issue in this country that is not rooted in moral turpitude.

    If your priority is the latter, you will find yourself more and more marginalized over time, as the past four decades have proven.

    Without the latter, you will not have the former.

    We would like to have you as part of a successful political coalition, but if you’re that unable to see the forest for the trees, we’re better off without you.

    Quite the other way around, but so be it.

    That your fellow Americans are largely on the knife edge of financial ruin should be a higher priority to you, if you had any morals worth a damn.

    LOL! Oh the irony!

    My opinion is Trump can win even if up to 30% of the Cruzerites sit out the election.

    Yeah, we hear that every election... until September when the begging and pleading starts.

    The first step to winning an election is nominating a Conservative.

    They love to re-write Reagan. It's sad and frustrating but what can you do with simple people?

    All I know is that I have had to defend Reagan from this scurrilous charge more this year than ever - And more here on FR than anywhere else. There is definitely a movement afoot to liberalize the Abortion plank at the expense of Reagan.

    the grass roots are more Cruz types.

    My cuz is TEA Party, hard-core conservative - Absolutely elated at the victory in CO, where he is a delegate.

    A friend's BIL, who I know, same thing in WY. I know many of the folks in ID grassroots, all TEA.

    It is my hope that Cruz will take it right to the wall - A Tea Party president with TEA Party coattails... And it would be nostalgic for me to be able to pull the lever for a Republican for a change.

  • Trump’s ‘voterless’ election myth

    I am "seriously maintaining" that if there was "hanky-panky" you gotta prove it, it is not up to Cruz or his supporters to disprove it or to prove the negative.

    And first in evidence, nathanbedford, is that the fine people of Colorado and Wyoming - The very ones whose votes were supposedly disenfranchised - have not risen up in protest. This manufactured hue and cry has given them no cause, and they remain at peace.

    Knowing the Western man as I do... especially Wyoming, the second sister of my own state, if there was indeed a hue and cry, there is no doubt in my mind that Western men would rise to the cause. They take their Liberty neat hereabouts, straight out of the bottle - and they are more than capable of securing it for themselves. To claim them poor and cowardly is an offense of the highest order.

    Rather, to say their vote should not count - that they should be disqualified because (according to others) their election system is arcane and antiquated - That is what is the disenfranchisement here.

    And to that, the inevitable reply of the Western man remains: "Mind your own damn business."

    Trump has been shut out of the Rockies. Only Montana remains, and she will give him no more than her sisters did. I can all but guarantee that. Perhaps that should shed light on why CO and WY voted the way they did.

    There’s lots of great conservatives here. The problem is you are saying we have to have career politicians so we can see their votes.

    No, it doesn't. I am happy to look to past accomplishment without political office - Otherwise Cruz himself would have a woefully short record.

    That’s not what the founding fathers had in mind.

    I disagree - the political class formed very early on...

    And frankly, I don't care. What matters is the record.

    No, Trump's election year promises are what matters.

    According to whom? Trump?

    If you think sticking with the DC status quo, led by Hillary or the GOPe/mimi-GOPE (Ted Cruz), then take your vote elsewhere, I guess.

    I find your lumping of Cruz (and the TEA Party) in with the GOPe to be highly disingenuous.

    Trump will be different.

    Unicorns farting rainbows, as I see it. Wish in one hand... 'Will be' is not 'IS'. Cruz IS Conservative, by every measure.

    Trump doesn't have a political record, but he has a good record as a red-blooded American capitalist in the real world, as opposed to the phony world of politics.

    Sorry, but no, he doesn't.

    the only person even remotely willing and able to lead that change is Donald J. Trump.

    Messianic strains. No thanks. The working end of the spear is the TEA Party... not one man.

    Vote Trump

    Thanks, but I'll stick with the Conservative in the race.

    When it comes right down to it, that’s all Cruz has too. Campaign promises. Cruz has no real world experience whatsoever. He was a great solicitor general for the state of Texas, but has zero executive experience and really no legislative experience to speak of either.

    I wouldn't go quite that far - His conservative nature has been on display since a very early age. Experience is certainly important - but not as important as character. Cruz has stuck to his guns, all the way along.

    I don't see that in Trump. At all.

    So now election year promises are how we define Conservatism?

    By that criteria, the whole GOP is conservative.

    I thought that’s why Conservatives look to the record to determine a candidate’s Conservatism.

    I must have missed the memo.

    They are independent people, I worked in South Dakota and my best friend growing up college and still close friend today lives in Montana. However, the conservativim of that area is different than the conservativim in the SE. We do not predicate anyone putting their opinion above our own. So when people put themselves in the position of speaking for us without giving us a voice we get pretty mad. Obviously the MOuntin and plains states do not care. Too bad.

    Oh the irony!

    Nice spin. Actually, in Colorado, a tempest in a teapot. Coloradans know what they're doing. There will be no outcry.

    But the people got heard....Much different than Colorado, where they would NOT let the people be heard....

    Which is why there was such a YUGE outcry for justice in Colorado herself - Why, there must have been at least 75 people at the protest![\sarc]

    It is only the insider way, laws by the people are not important only a few insiders matter.

    Total baloney. By and large, the Rockies are Conservative ground, and has HIGHLY independent people. Much more civil-libertarian. Much more FREE.
