Does that mean Cruz and his team should do a dirty trick? I just read a story where all the Cruz people were speaking at the Caucuses saying that Carson had already dropped out. I wonder if Cruz would have won without that lie.

Check out twitter time stamps – no foul play by Cruz intended, just a CNN error.

Carson looks like he is out. Iowans need to know before they vote. Most will go to Cruz, I hope. https://twitter.com/moody/status/694320149432651776 …

I doubt he would have. Carson's people had been on the ground in Iowa since January 2014!! They worked hard to get people to caucus for Carson. Carson should have come in at least 2nd with all they had done. Then people lied and stole his votes. You can bet he will not let that happen again! Carson is in for the long haul.

And you prove my point. He was naturalized at birth by a statute. I and most of my fellow citizens were not naturalized at birth because we were natural born citizens at birth. I personally think that requires two citizen parents and birth on native soil. But the following WaPo article shows that birth on native soil is needed at a minimum.
I have to wholeheartedly disagree with this author. Was Ted Cruz naturalized? Yes, the laws make Cruz a citizen at birth. A natural born citizen does not need a law to make them a citizen, so Cruz’s status is a form of naturalization.
Is Trump being a hypocrite? No. Trump is not saying birth on native soil makes you a citizen like an anchor baby. He is saying that citizens born on native soil have an extra status compared to any other citizens. There are naturalized citizens, citizens at birth by statute and natural born citizens who are both citizens at birth and born on native soil. Cruz is a citizen of birth but his status does not rise to the higher bar of natural born citizen. I personally think the term means what Emmeric de Vattel defined in the Treatise the Law of Nations. That the natural way to become a citizen was to be born of two citizen on native soil. Most everyone I know are natural born citizens in that sense. But even if I’m wrong, the WaPo article by a legal historian makes it clear that being born on native soil is required to be a natural born citizen. Read the article and see for yourself. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/ted-cruz-is-not-eligible-to-be-president/2016/01/12/1484a7d0-b7af-11e5-99f3-184bc379b12d_story.html

If you haven’t read the WaPo article by a legal historian, you should. She destroys the argument that Cruz is natural born in my opinion.
You don’t understand why I think Cruz is not a natural born citizen. First I think the framers were using the term natural born citizen as defined in the Treatise The Law of Nations by Emmeric de Vattel. It was a book that Ben Franklin and the founders used years before during the revolutionary war. Ben was also a member of the Constitutional convention. That definition, the only one in use at the time of our founding required being born on native soil to two citizen parents. If you think about it, that is the natural way to be born a citizen, especially when travel and immigration was far less common in the 1700s.
But even if that is wrong. The WaPo had a great writeup by a legal historian that supports being born on native soil as a requirement to be natural born. Cruz is certainly a citizen naturalized at birth by the laws of the US. Natural born citizens don’t require a statute to make them citizens. Here is the link to the WaPo article, by the way, you are a jerk.
As I understand it, Texas is the only state left that allows the use of deadly force to protect property. I wish all the states still allowed it. BTW you are a prime example of why I hate people like you that hate the 2nd amendment.

I’m so over Beck. I had to turn off my ad blocker just to post a comment. He uses about 20 trackers on his site. He is all about money and trying to influence the masses. He supports Cruz a man born in Canada. So if I listen to Beck I am supposed to vote for someone that is not a natural born citizen. He glosses over that. He never addresses what the founders meant by that term.
But according to him Trump is bad. Well, the fact both sides hate him so much is an indication that he might be alright. The only Republican nominee for president that I have liked in my lifetime is Reagan. They used to call the republicans the party of Reagan, but no other nominee was like him. The republican party is the opposite of Reagan, Reagan was a fluke and hated by the establishment on both sides. The repubs at the time really wanted Bush Sr. They finally got him and he was awful, just like Dole, Bush the younger, McCain and Romney. The best credential Trump has is the fact that establishment repubs including Beck hate him. Beck might be right that Trump is a charlatan, I only say that because it takes one to know one and Beck is a charlatan.
Maybe because Trump is bad. I will repeat:
It took Trump 6 years to figure out that Obama and Hillary were bad for America when it took the average conservative less than 30 seconds to do the same thing. Now he wants us to believe he is suddenly such a salient person, especially after a quarter century of liberalism. Not buying it for a millisecond.

Nope he isn’t a natural born citizen. Born in Canada and his dad wasn’t a citizen at the time of birth.

This is really a little silly. I’m sure concealed carry helped, but you are aware of how cold and snowy Chicago has been? I’m sure most of the reduction in crime is due to the cold.

I’m sorry but she should have to give everyone around her a taste at the nipple if she doesn’t cover up. Its not polite to eat in front of other people!!! Only sort of kidding, why not use an on board blanket to cover up. If this broad did this next to me, I’d stare ogle and and film it. Just because a baby is sucking on a teat doesn’t mean we all have to look at her tit.
Lol! Thanks SlaveToTruth. I really did laugh out loud.

I agree with your analogy DarkJello. I also have wanted to go over to Italy and try to live in the Vatican. After all they are always defending illegals in the U.S. How long before me the undocumented priest would be in jail or evicted.
And to you Keatonc333, your are right. It is much worse to cross an international frontier. But to make it easier for you to understand, I’ll just climb your fence and live in your backyard, eat your dog and crap all around your house. After all, I’d just be an undocumented member of your family.

From the article they are apparently blaming the heart attack on the pot. But, once again, I think the coroner is confusing causes with correlations. People in great physical shape have heart attacks for not discernible reason. This reads like the coroner was looking to blame something for triggering the heart attack. Maybe it did, but considering the medicine they practice in England, I’m not convinced.

What is a pot related death? I know you don’t mean that pot killed the person. That would be trumpeted on the airwaves.
That study in the article is flawed. IT doesn’t look just at drivers but anyone killed in a car wreck. So a drunk could slam into a group of walking stoners and the study would count that. The study really tells us nothing about cause and effect.
But did you read the whole article. There was a second study mentioned that blows your point out of the water. I quote.
A separate study — also based on FARS data — found that in states where medical marijuana was approved, traffic fatalities decrease by as much as 11 percent during the first year after legalization.

I have never been diagnosed, but I think I have Aspergers. Also in the early 80s I tried contacts for the first time and my eyes turned blood red. A few years later I tried contacts and didn’t have the problem. My eye doctor at the time said I was allergic to a preservative they used to use in contact solutions called thymerisol.
Guess what, I later found out that most vaccines have or at least did have thymerisol (a mercury compound). That means for years as a child I was getting injected with a chemical my body was allergic to. I wouldn’t be surprised if that didn’t cause my Aspergers.
So it possible that most children don’t have bad reactions to vaccines, but it is not unlikely that the unlucky few do have bad reactions that cause autism. That is why I’m not sure all the vaccines are necessary.
Apparently flu shots are the worst. Michael Savage is very against flu shots, because to the contaminates that typically found in flu shots.

Actually if the minor has epilepsy or some other malady that pot can help then I would be for that specific minor to smoke it. I think that the epilepsy kids are consuming oil instead of smoking it.
I am infuriated that my state doesn’t allow medical pot. My elderly Mom has COPD and I have seen anecdotal evidence plus national institute of health studies that indicate it may be helpful for her condition. On youtube a 91 year old man says a year before he was on 5 liters of oxygen (per minute I think) and it shows him moving around happily without any oxygen tank. Even if it only worked for 1% of COPD sufferers, they should have the chance to see if it works for them. BTW, I’m pretty sure he was consuming hemp oil, not smoking it.
Do a search about Rick Simpson’s hemp oil and you will see that many claim it helps their conditions.

I quickly looked at both studies. Yes they found some impact on fetuses, but they did not find fetal marijuana syndrome. That is what I was refuting with Nab.
I never said marijuana is harmless. But, I also would not outlaw a substance just because if a mother consumed it, it would hurt her child. If that was the standard, cigarettes, alcohol, etc. would be illegal.
Nab doesn’t know what he is talking about and you apparently can follow a conversation. Thanks for providing no studies that support an actual fetal marijuana syndrome. With fetal alcohol syndrome there is no mistaking the facial deformity (eyes too close together) and the behavioral problems. But, again in a free society a mother has a right to decide what to put into her body when she is pregnant.
Thanks for arguing for the forces of repression instead of for liberty.
