the stupid wants us to "Deal with it"

I despise writing like this, typically finger-vomited out by feckless morons, regardless of ideology or political bent:
Trucker Dave 2 months ago
2008! This is 2013. That’s five years. If he was an attorney he was representing the views of his client. Now he is a Tea Party Senator. He is reflecting the views of the Tea Party and their strict constitutional stance on 2nd Amendment rights. At least we know that he will fight tooth and nail for the people he represents and will not always just follow along with the main stream tyrants in Washington, D.C. At least he is using the U.S. Constitution as his guideline of thought unlike Resident Obama, McCain, Harry Reid and the rest of the Obama Nation elite. They just make up what they are going to do on the fly without any regard to constitutional restraints.
Senator Cruz took a big step fighting Obama Nation Health Care for the People of the United States, to stop lawmakers from passing laws that they exempt themselves from but expect the governed to live under regardless of the negative impact on their lives. Whatever Senator Cruz’ drawbacks may be, at least the voters can have a dialogue with him and get results if the People’s position is not popular in the Washington Beltway.
Now everything from the government shutdown, to the failure of the government to create a budget and limit it’s spending is being leveled at Senator Cruz. I would trust Senator Cruz with my 2nd Amendment rights far further than I would Senator Feinstien’s radical left wing stance. The criticism of Sen. Cruz is raging non-stop and will continue as long as he is being considered as a Tea Party Republican presidential choice. My questions to his criticism are these: If he shutdown the government can someone please tell me when he opened it again…I didn’t catch those articles? If he is against 2nd Amendment rights so strongly why does every 2nd Amendment supporter in the Tea Party still support him? And, if his stance got the Republicans to support a delay of the individual mandates in the Obama Nation Health Care program and that caused the shutdown the government, why are the Democrats considering delaying the program now that the shutdown concluded. The answer to each and every one of these questions lies in the fact that the Democrats and their liberal sidekicks in the Republican Party don’t mind using the press to destroy people’s credibility, inconvenience the American people, discount 1/2 of the voting public that supports conservative goals and even shut down the government to make sure that any good idea becomes a Democrat supported idea and not a Republican one. Meanwhile the Democrats call for an end to partisanship in almost every public appearance. There is no bounds for their hypocrisy.
If Sen. Cruz was indeed a hypocrite, I would be the first to call him out on it. But I do not, in my opinion, see this clearly reflected in this article. I do however see the liberal, anti-constitutional hypocrisy spelled out every day in attacks against the conservative Tea Party. We are growing larger and we intend to restore our American Constitution and the Republic for which it stands. Deal with it.
"Trucker Dave" is obviously one of the narcissistic internet creatures that flounders about seeking attention, demanding address as if he possessed dignity and then writes imperative sentences as if he is steeling for a genuine confrontation, even when people don't care if he lives or dies, let alone see him as a living challenge to their status quo.

Never mind that "we intend to restore our American Constitution and the Republic for which it stands" is mildly plagiarist, intentionally allusionary, definitely pretentious, and unavoidably corny.  "Deal with it".  There is nothing to deal with.  It makes me weep, however, that people who are politically on MY SIDE, in this country, are so damned STUPID.

James Earl Jones & Malcolm McDowell doing dramatic interpretations of social media is pretty rad.
"For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something." - Steve Jobs
do you know what Mark Schauer and David Agema have in common?

They both give a bigger crap about gay marriage than I do.

And they both SO DESPERATELY WANT the government to have a hand in your marriage, and who gets married.

pay Mark Dantonio more

Simple decision for MSU: Make Coach Pat Narduuzzi the highest paid DC in the game. END OF DISCUSSION. ‪#‎PayNarduzzi‬ Time for MSU to quit paying proven coaches terrible. Dantonio 9th highest paid in B1G. I know 1 recruit that an SEC Coach showed him what Dantonio was making in USA story. "Does that look like a school committed to winning? Coach Dantonio is a good man, I am asking you about the school?" MSU has lost so many great coaches because they won't pay over the years. MSU basketball is great every year because they pay Izzo among top 5. More than many NBA teams will pay. His once top assistant Jim Boylen was the highest paid assistant in the nation. MSU has sustained success because the pay the basketball program. They should. Football makes tens of millions more.

a Pastor with a gun

A pastor with a gun saved lives.  He did it out of love.

The pastor used his gun to take control of the situation when a would-be robber attempted to rob a Dollar General.
