Ted Cruz is a liberal cuck.

Quote:
"I am saying that consenting adults should be able to do whatever they want in their bedrooms. The media and the left seem obsessed with sex, let people do what they want," Cruz said in an interview with CNN's Dana Bash.

Yeah, it's the political left that's obsessed with telling people who they can sleep with, and under what circumstances.

Talk about projection!

He claims that he was just obligated as TX AG to defend the law even though it was stupid.

Of course, we all know he cares very much about ending LGBT rights, so it's not like that's the only evidence we have of his hypocrisy.

Suck it, Sessions:

Quote:
Judge rules in city’s favor on sanctuary cities, grants nationwide injunction

In a ruling with national impact, a federal judge in Chicago on Friday blocked the Trump administration’s rules requiring so-called sanctuary cities to cooperate with immigration agents in order to get a public safety grant.

U.S. District Judge Harry Leinenweber held that Chicago has shown a “likelihood of success” in its arguments that U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions exceeded his authority in imposing new standards governing Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grants across the country.

Same here.

Ironically, I'd probably like some ICP songs if I bothered to listen - it's the same concept as The Misfits, only rap instead of rock & roll.

A short Reason video, featuring my link to ICP - Nathan Rabin:


Nathan Rabin is working on his take, but he said this:

Quote:
I feel like we accomplished what we set out to do, and that this is a big evolutionary leap forward in how people see ICP and Juggalos.
I 100% sympathize with the reasons for the march, too. I would say I'm happy for them.

Polling day here in kiwiland. Earliest results started to come in. I'd love to see a change of government, but I'm not hopeful even though it's going to be closer than it looked a couple of months ago.
