And Those Are Your Choices, Students!

August 30, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

I think Ted Cruz meant well with his back-to-school newsletter.  I do.  I think the poor man is just so disconnected from reality that he has no idea what he sounds like.  He sounds like a rich Canadian man totally disconnected from reality.

You can read his whole newsletter here, but if you can only take Ted Cruz in small doses, I’ve provided a picture of what he tells students that they can become if they study hard enough.

So, if you’re a girl you can start a cosmetic company and exploit women in some pyramid scheme where the best thing in the world is a pink Cadillac.  If you’re a boy you can be pot smoking country star, or a guy who invented a way to destroy the environment.

Please note that all three of these people are white.  Whites are a minority in Texas public schools.   None are disabled.  8.4% of Texas students are disabled.

However, at least one of them is a Democrat.



Thanks to Lucy for the heads up.

  1. I gotcher white privilege right over here!

  2. And yet he said nothing about Willie and George working and also being good fathers. Ugh!

  3. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Meant well? Dude is a walking anachronism. His examples are 1980s. How about some 2014 reality as to students today facing crushing student loan debt, etc. If he was serious about encouraging education, start with making it possible for more young people.

  4. I’m surprised he didn’t mention that crazy guy who started Whole Foods when everybody told him that he wouldn’t even find enough people in Austin to buy organic food!

  5. Cruz’s name and approval is on this, all right. However, there is no way I can envision Mr. Entitled doing all the scutt work in research and writing to bring this off. Now there’s a story to tell our kids! Marry your way into some really big,big money and then sit back and hire lackies to do all the work of telling you, yeah you can do it! My God! The toxic gall of this guy! This is right on the same beam as Mitt’s declaration that you should get $20,000 from your parents and start your own business. Yeah. Right. My folks were survivors of the Great Depression and had no way to even touch a picture of $20 grand. And look what happened to Mitt! There’s a moral in his story for Cruz to consider if he were ever authentically smart enough!

  6. Cruz’s self-righteous hypocrisy as shown in the video at the top of his newsletter makes me want to vomit. He and his cronies couldn’t possibly care less about poor little kids. What he wants is to enable the “reformers” to get their hands on the billions of tax dollars spent on education for which he will be richly rewarded.

  7. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Whenever any of the party of st00pid dribble the deranged drivel from their lips, it is not worthy of even a bad pun.


    “Deja Moo: the feeling that you’ve heard this bull before.”

    With a little over 8 weeks to the 2014 elections, Reince can’t buy and apply the duct tape fast enough.

  8. “There’s nothing stopping you from doing the same.”
    Cruz and his conservative cronies are what’s stopping them by cutting education budgets, refusing to enact a fair immigration policy, denying Affordable care and expanded Medicaid, catering to the wealthy and Wall Street, and refusing to enact sensible gun restrictions. What a raving hypocrite.

  9. Just about every time I start missing Texas, I get the joy of seeing something from the crazier wing of the Rethugs.

    Cruz is the gift that keeps on and on and on…

  10. Whenever I am tempted to think unkind thoughts about Ted Cruz I just remind myself who his father is. Then I feel sorry for him.

  11. Is it allowed that you just grow up to be maybe a white pot smokin’ female….Democrat.????

    ‘Cause if they ever make it legal in Texas, I may consider it.

    When I grow up….. of course. 🙂

  12. Wa Skeptic says:

    Obviously, one of the main perks of being POTUS are getting to go backstage to meet Willie Nelson!

  13. Sam in Schertz says:

    If pretty boy Cruz spent a few weeks on Willie’s bus maybe he would almost turn into a human, as a matter of fact I would volunteer to go first just to check it out.
