Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) used a tweet on Wednesday to tell Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) that her city is lacking criminal control rather than gun control.
Cruz’s tweet comes after he used Chicago to show that gun control does not work.

On Monday, September 2, 2019, Cruz tweeted, “Gun control doesn’t work. Look at Chicago. Disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer. Stopping violent criminals—prosecuting & getting them off the street—BEFORE they commit more violent crimes is the most effective way to reduce murder rates. Let’s protect our citizens.”

Lightfoot responded by claiming gun laws in red states arm Chicago criminals. She told Cruz, “Keep our name out of your mouth.”

The next day Lightfoot again blamed Republicans, equating a defense of the Second Amendment with an “unwillingness to protect … constituents.” She offered to explain the “root cause” of gun violence to Cruz if he wanted to come to Chicago.

Cruz responded by tweeting, “Mayor, the most significant ‘root cause’ is that criminals have all the guns. One place to start is not releasing back to the public, but rather locking up violent, repeat offenders before they murder again.”

Cruz’s point is that it is time for criminal control rather than gun control.

Campaigners

I was sitting here, minding my own business, when I received a phone call from some lady for Ted Cruz. I could have sworn that I am on the do not call list. Since when do I get calls about supporting anyone in the campaign?

Then this lady rattles off as fast as possible all this garbage about Ted Cruz. I try to get a word in, but she don’t stop. Hell, I told her a couple of weeks ago, that I am not interested.

I tell her that Americans don’t have jobs, we don’t have no money. She goes to rattling off again. She wants that $75 big time! She has no intention of shutting up and listening to me.

Finally I had to cut her off and tell her, I live with a man that is 100% disabled, we ain’t got no money.

We don’t vote for Dems or Republicans. If you want change, you don’t vote for the same assholes that got us to where we are right now. I still think we need to wipe out all the government and replace them with what we were supposed to have, according to our founding fathers.


(I did a search for an image of a laughing jackass, this is what I found, I guess it fits)

The govt. is supposed to work for us. Instead, we spend our livetimes paying taxes upon taxes, to support these retired idiots, some of whom served only a short period as an elected official and for what? It turned out that we work to support the govt. they don’t work for us, we work for them and they abuse their positions.

How often do they vote in accordance with what the people want? Not very, all I can see is them bowing down to King Obama.

Well, now, maybe I can calm down and try to be productive…
