All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


No Ted You Can't

I don't have the first clue as to what Ted Cruz's politics are.  I don't care.  He isn't from my state and I have no possibility of influencing him in any way.  Yes I know he is a Republican, but that doesn't tell us a thing about how much of a pinko commie rat bastard he may be.  John McCain is a Republican as is allegedly Benedict Boehner.  The almighty "R" behind the name is meaningless.

The thing that makes the girls of the GOP's honey pots moist with love is the "H" behind Cruz's name.  That "H" stands for Hispanic.  Cruz is half Cuban.  A Cuban looks the same as Mexican to old white men.  They can't tell if the pool boy is from Cuba, Mexico, Guatemala or wherever, so maybe the gazillion Mexican illegals that WILL BE VOTING in the next election can't either.  That is the hope and prayer of the GOP, one last election where they might get their guy in the Whitehouse and hold on to the House of Representatives.  Don't be fooled.  If they get that, they won't use their power to restore the republic, end Obama Care, limit government or any other useful or patriotic thing.  What they will do is loot the place, one last time for the benefit of their special interests. 

Back to the Great Brown Hope.
WASHINGTON — Born in Canada to an American mother, Ted Cruz became an instant U.S. citizen. But under Canadian law, he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born.
Unless the Texas Republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say.
That means he could assert the right to vote in Canada or even run for Parliament. On a lunch break from the U.S. Senate, he could head to the nearby embassy — the one flying a bright red maple leaf flag — pull out his Calgary, Alberta, birth certificate and obtain a passport.
“He’s a Canadian,” said Toronto lawyer Stephen Green, past chairman of the Canadian Bar Association’s Citizenship and Immigration Section.
The circumstances of Cruz’s birth have fueled a simmering debate over his eligibility to run for president. Knowingly or not, dual citizenship is an apparent if inconvenient truth for the tea party firebrand, who shows every sign he’s angling for the White House.
Here is the deal Ted: a "natural born citizen" has two, count them two, parents that are citizens of the United States of America when the child (that's you el cretino) is born.  Not one parent two.  It doesn't matter where the birth takes place.  Teddly, you have one parent that is a US citizen, one that is a Cuban citizen and you were born in Canada.  That gives you 3 possible nationalities to choose from. 

The ability to obtain 3 different legal passports is a wonderful thing.  Ted, do it man.  You can never tell when you may need those passports to save yourself and your family.  I salute you.  Get all 3 three, open up bank accounts in tax havens as a Canadian and a Cuban.  Build wealth and safety for when this country is gone.  You are a US Senator and at the front of the looting line.  Cash, prizes and a safe international exit to a warm non-extradition country await.  I envy you.

You can't be president though.  For that you need two citizen parents.  You don't have them.  Neither does the guy in there now.  I know.  I'm not happy about that.  He has advanced the Gotterdammerung by 100 or more years.  That doesn't mean you get a shot too. 


  1. Res,

    I think you're wrong here.

    According to Acquisition of U.S. Citizenship by a Child Born Abroad (US State Department):

    Birth Abroad to One Citizen and One Alien Parent in Wedlock

    A child born abroad to one U.S. citizen parent and one alien parent acquires U.S. citizenship at birth under Section 301(g) of the INA provided the U.S. citizen parent was physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for the time period required by the law applicable at the time of the child's birth. (For birth on or after November 14, 1986, a period of five years physical presence, two after the age of fourteen, is required. For birth between December 24, 1952 and November 13, 1986, a period of ten years, five after the age of fourteen, is required for physical presence in the United States or one of its outlying possessions to transmit U.S. citizenship to the child.) The U.S. citizen parent must be genetically related to the child to transmit U.S. citizenship.

    --- end quote ---

    So.. Were his parents married at the time of his birth? I don't see anything that claims that they weren't. His mother was a US Citizen at the time. I don't see anything claiming that his mother did not live at least ten years in the US (five of them after she turned 14) before he was born.

    If there was legitimate evidence, you would think that someone would start coughing it up by now.

  2. There is a difference between the meaning of the word "citizen" and the term "natural born citizen". You can be a citizen through anyone of several avenues. Clearly Ted is a citizen via his mothers birthright. He is also a dual citizen to Canada via his birthplace and can claim citizenship in Cuba via his fathers citizenship in that country at the time of his birth.

    A natural born citizen has no divided loyalty to any other nation. The term "natural born citizen" has meant 2 parents who were citizens at the time of the child's birth. This definition was accepted from 1804 until 2008, when it became problematic for the Anointed One. 1804 and 2008 being the only times in our nations history that the issue came up, probably because everyone understood the matter, until it became convenient to misunderstand it.

    BTW when McCain was in the senate and contemplating running for Prez they held a hearing on his being a "natural born citizen". The conclusion was that even though his birth took place on an American navel base oversees, he was "natural born" and eligible for office due to his having 2 citizen parents. Obummer voted in favor of this definition as a senator from IL at that time.
