Ted Cruz Faces Backlash in Texas After Fleeing to Cancun | The Tonight Show

  • He flew to Hong Kong to be with the rioters. He flew Cancun to be with Cancun folks because they needed him there. Texans, democracy is a popularity contest sponsored by capitalists.

  • We need a new and completely different government. The one we have has failed us. Second (first is at the end): we need to get rid of the "bipartisan" bullshit. The only thing it's good for is gumming up the works and creating drama to keep us blinded to what the hell is really going on. Ted Cruz fled a freezing state he supposedly represents to vacation in CANCUN! No public servant should make enough money to fly off out of the country whenever the fuck they feel like it. ...All income of public offices need to be severely decreased to a cost of living ratio. Even the President. (An odd piece of trivia: the highest paid gov't office is an administrator in the EPA--not even the head figure of the EPA makes that much--$750,000 a year. The muddy waters of corruption in this country run REALLY deep.) Next, anyone who's elected to a position of so much power needs to be monitored 24/7. They should not be afforded the rights that they swear to protect. Public cams should follow their every step, the footage of which should be available to public access at all times. While in office, the payment they earn should be held in abeyance till they leave office. The gov't pays for their housing and transportation--they should all be issued small hybrid vehicles whose mileage is constantly monitored and made public. They'll be afforded a daily or monthly stipend for food. When America runs out of food, they will too. Next and most important: every politician in DC should be arrested and thrown in a military prison while every aspect of their lives are investigated and their bank accounts turned inside out. Any bribe taken or "gift" accepted from the rich elite will be found and both parties punished. Any "Senator" or "Congressman" who owns more than one home should spend the rest of their lives in prison. They were elected to help others, not themselves, and abusing that power is an offense of the most egregious nature. Next: no individual--PERIOD--who owns stock should be eligible for ANY candidacy. That opens up too many avenues to corruption. Honestly, if one of them even tries, they should be immediately imprisoned while they're investigated. This a country of people, not principalities. Next, any law that's been passed for the sake of a corporation will be overturned and that corporation fined a crippling amount of money. Companies will be indubitably barred from approaching lawmakers, and if caught making the attempt, that person, the CEO and CFO will be arrested promptly. Punishment for these types of transgressions will face severe repercussions posthaste, no more ridiculous rights to representation. In fact, if they make over $200,000 a year, they won't be allowed. That'll force the uppercrust to toe the line, permanently, not when it suits them to lie to the people. And speaking of corporations... every company on American soil will be invaded by the National Reserves: every invention or creation that a company stuffed in a dark closet for the purpose of making money off inferior products that are designed to fail or medicinal cure purposefully withheld to make a profit off a perpetual "treatment" will be brought to light and the company abolished, it's assests liquidated for other companies to do a better job, or face the same fate. CEOs will be thrown in prison and impoverished for those sins brought to light. Next: humanity is technologically advanced enough for the entire country (the whole world, really) to go green. The east and west coasts can run on 100% tidal power. All the companies lack is the incentive. Giant, crippling fines will abound until they've done their duty to mankind. All landlocked states can run on solar, wind, and geothermal power. The energy companies will be given a 2-year mandate. (There are of course exceptions, which will be taken into account. For example: Denver CO can't harness wind power because of their geological placement in a valley surrounded by buffering mountains. But we're smart enough to think up something.) The rich elite: they evaded $5 trillion in taxes for 2018 and have worked tirelessly to defund the IRS, at which they succeeded. A normal person would serve time in prison for these transgressions and they will, too; no matter where they run, our military will find them. That $5 trillion? That's where our free insurance will come from. We are the last first-world country (and if you look closely enough, you'll realize America doesn't fall in that category--that's right: our quality of living is so poor that we're a second-world country now) that still doesn't have free health care. And first of all: we need to shut down the federal reserve. So... suck on that for a while. BTW: please circulate this post on any and all social media outlets in which you engage, even if you hated it and think I'm an idiot. I hate to be a doomsayer, but this is--literally--the only way to save our country.

  • People freezing, can't get food or water. Children and old people freezing to death. The senator they elected goes to Mexico for a warm vacation. During the Covid lockdown their Gov. and Lt. Gov urged the state to sacrifice their lives for their economy and now they blamed the state's condition on non-existent legislation. The DICK Perry said Texans would rather die than accept Federal help. In the meantime even gun violence has escalated there. It seems to me Texans got exactly what they voted for.
