It wasn't preplanned. It was to get away from the weather.

Hey, PO, you gonna tell Ted to grow up? Because even Ted said it was "a mistake" to fly to Cancun on a whim because they were without power and heat in their home for a couple days.


He was Mayor when he posted the rant on FB. He resigned after the post. While I don't disagree with what he posted, it's best he resigned.




I'm not being jealous, woman. I'm in sunny and warm Arizona. I don't need/want to go to Mexico.
I didn't "rant on him." I posted a single sentence. And I would have posted the same for a Democrat because, unlike you, I'm not a partisan hack. If someone does something stupid, I'll call them out regardless of their political party. I guarantee you had this been a Democrat Senator, you would have posted criticism about it. But it's your man crush so he gets a pass from you.


BTW, here's what Ted said, "as I was heading down there, you know, I started to have second thoughts almost immediately because the crisis here in Texas, you need to be here on the ground. As much as you can do by phone and Zoom, it's not the same as being here. And so, I returned this afternoon and I'm here working to make sure that we do everything we can to get the power turned on."

May want to tell your man crush that he's wrong.

The Cruz thing is a gaffe. Politically stupid. Looks bad. Unforced error. A politician violating his or her own lockdown order is a scandal. Abuse of power. Corruption. Deceit.

There’s a difference. A pretty big difference. People are pretending not to see the difference.

Right when it was revealed that the FBI is investigating Cuomo over the nursing home scandal, suddenly the media starts focusing intensely on the Cruz family's trip to Cancun. If you're a conservative going along with this obvious bs distraction technique, you're useless.


Oooops...

Re: Praying for Texas

Last night was our last night of freezing weather. We only have one toilet that we have parts to replace. As of yet, we don’t see any evidence of leaking pipes.

Thanks for your prayers for our state, Amanah and MawMaw! I am sure there are other homes still trying to get on their feet. Praying for them all!

Why is Walsh ranting about this? He should grow up and stop being jealous.

Oops. Looks like Matt and I agree that it was stupid and looked bad.

Ironic how you slam me for my single sentence but applaud Walsh. Is Matt Walsh a closet Democrat?

Ridiculous.

I personally feel that the media is putting us into group think. I have read more comments by true constituents, like myself, who don’t care if he and his family flew to Cancun. As a Senator, he has no control over getting the problem fixed. He violated no mandate. Some of the comments have been that he can work remotely like everyone else and that he left his house not using up resources others could use.

Of course, any excuse to get Ted removed is their goal. We should push back. The Democrats work is to divide the Republicans before 2022.

Here is what violating a mandate and what real hypocrisy looks like:

Chris Christi, the proverbial Rhino, tells the people to stay off the beach ending up with his family on the beach.

Gavin Newsom mandates everyone stay home and closes restaurants, ends up at French Laundry Restaurant.

Pelosi and Lori Lightfoot demand hair salons close, yet, end up with special appointments.

Gov. Whitmer mandates stay home, stay off the water, yet, her husband goes down to a boat dock to prepare a little boat trip.

Chris Como goes biking after instructing people to stay home.

That is just a few examples.

You and I can disagree, but I know one thing we can agree on - Ted did not violate any mandates. He has worked hard for Texas and I don't want him beat up over something that is no where on the level of hypocrisy.

We can’t allow the left to level us over things they do themselves.

Re: Praying for Texas

I’m not a Ted Cruz fan. There’s something about him that I don’t care for, it may be his looks. If I look past the surface I tend to agree with his policies so maybe I’m being shallow.

Having said all that, his first responsibilities are to his wife and children. Certainly NOT the voters. This is scriptural. I think he did the right thing, until he apologized. I wish he had not apologized. But he didn’t ask me. Maybe next time he will.

I’m dripping with wisdom just waiting to share. All he had to do is ask!

Sadly, this is where politics places you - forcing you to do what they want.

There are two sides - David says bad optics. My side says, I donít care.

If he had said nothing, Davidís side would have kept crucifying him. The Left will keep it up until 2022.

More sadly, the Republicans wonít come together and show the hypocrisy in this story - The Leftís rules for me and not for thee. They need to do better and stop allowing the media, Hollywood, Rhinos and the Left to keep telling us how we have to think and view things. Good grief, now Coca Cola is putting out internal teaching - ďstop acting white.Ē This is getting out of hand.

Gina Carano was cancelled for saying the truth. ďJews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors...even by children. Because history is edited, most people today donít realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews.Ē

@AllenWest
1/ I hear that New York progressive socialist Rep. AOC is coming to Houston with $2M for weather relief. The gesture is appreciated but it doesnít remove the fact that her green new deal philosophy failed Texans.

Exactly!
