EVERYWHERE

“Later that night
I held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered
where does it hurt?

It answered
everywhere
everywhere
everywhere.”

LET THE CIRCUS BEGINS

Ted Cruz’s Announcement Disrespects The Founding Fathers, American Tradition And Non-Christians

The Tea Party favorite chose a location to announce his quest for the presidency that has, so far as I can ascertain, never been chosen before in our nation’s history — a religious institution that, according to it’s own description, offers “a world-class Christian education” for the purpose of “training champions for Christ”.

Cruz embarked on his march to the White House before a crowd of some 10,000 students at Liberty University — a number that would have been terribly impressive for such an event were it not for the fact that attendance was compulsory — where the Senator would spent the first part of his speech extolling the virtues of Jesus Christ and the importance the Christian faith played in keeping his family together.
