    Have impressed me with their poise and dignity every time I have seen them. I thought my opinion of Canadian Cruz could not possibly go any lower but he proved me wrong. He is a being totally without compassion, empathy or wisdom. I actually saw the moment that Sen Joe McCarthy was called out for his excesses on live TV Congressional hearings in the 50s. I am anxiously waiting for Cruz to get his coming slap down by someone with morals and sensitivity.

    Never promote men who seek after a state-established religion; it is spiritual tyranny--the worst of despotism. It is turnpiking the way to heaven by human law, in order to establish ministerial gates to collect toll. John Leland

    •  Cruz's strongest 'skill' is talking... (0+ / 0-)

      simplistic nonsense.

      I read only  businessweek's quotation of  Cruz, but it didn't pertain to Fulton's point that the law in practice doesn't work as purportedly intended.
      Cruz's statement is just vague idealistic blabber that implies Cruz knows only that some states have passed  "stand your ground" laws. A competent lawmaker cannot ignore how law performs in practice.
