A gaff to be sure, but all Republican candidates are going to say dumb things. On the other hand, the Clintons leave a wake of bodies, bribes and bimbos.

Cookies < Murder

I guess you're too young to remember the bake sales to help Bill Clinton reduce the national debt?

Yes. My problem with this is that here is a man, who would send our nation to war with Iran, telling veterans to sell cookies to help pay for the medical expenses associated with fighting wars. Fuck him.

Looks like Ted Cruz and that old hippie who lives down my block with the bumper sticker coated Subaru station wagon have something in common. I wonder if Cruz thinks we should "Coexist" also?

And you don't have a problem with a man who promised when he was elected to fix the VA?

Cruz needs to fix this gaff and learn that in campaigning, you don't talk off the cuff.

Bill O'Reilly is selling shirts and things and asking for donations, so are a lot of nonprofits like Wounded Warriors. During WWII, the public supported the effort by doing very small things that added up. I can tell you that selling cookies to help injured vets would probably fix the VA problem as long as the federal government wasn't allowed to get its hands on the money.

Sometimes I'm not entirely sure if Lighthouse is trolling or not.

As a free people, we must always challenge narratives and the Rule of Man.

Srsly? If there is anything the republican right is not short of it is bilious posturing and then you justify the notion ,that men who put their lives on the line for this country should sell cookies to pay for the damage incurred by that service, by calling it an "idea". I would prefer to belive it a joke. It would be more in keeping with Cruz 's persona of a clown . I agree with Ethan. Go fuck yourself Ted Cruz

No, not srsly. Well, semi-serious. Ethan does rather hate Republicans so the bile part was correct.

Cruz definitely has a knack for posturing and attention-seeking, I'll give you that. But, to use a favorite word of our friends in the Tower, you have to view it in Context (TM).

Cruz challenges the assumption that a bloated government agency, funded by money laundered through taxation, is the only source of assistance to veterans.

This idea is simply too far out of people's peripheral vision and cognitive perception. They are enveloped in the big-sky of federal cloud cover.

That being said, Cruz's comment was a mistake. Veterans and the word "cookie" do not belong in the same sentence.

Yeah, but you give the Repubs some special love. It's enjoyable.

Well, I am a product of having grown up while George Bush was president.
