Well clearly the liberals rule in #Norflkva and must be happy with the results they are getting.

— less than 50% of the schools accredited

— misappropriation of funds (local, state and federal)

— a crime rate worse than that of NYC

— highest in homicides (unsolved also)

— ghetto housing that is overpriced

— vehicle insurance rate even for the best driver three times the state average (did you ask why) theft, uninsured motorist, hit and runs

— homeless rate around 600 people PER DAY with over 90 of those CHILDREN!!

— Navy making threats of leaving due to encroachment by the city and reports from the DOD that Norfolk Navel Station is the least favored for sailors (due to ghetto city)

— etc.

Good job liberals

Ted Cruz Drops Out of Presidential Race

I hope all will stand with Trump

Liberty Cannon Media Group

This is just sad. According to Politico, Cruz’s campaign manager Jeff Roe confirmed that Ted Cruz is dropping out of the republican presidential race.

“Tonight, I’m sorry to say it appears that path [to the presidency] has been foreclosed.”

POLITICO – Ted Cruz is quitting the presidential race, according to campaign manager Jeff Roe, ending one of the best-organized campaigns of 2016 after a series of stinging defeats left Donald Trump as the only candidate capable of clinching the nomination outright.

Cruz had appeared likely to go all the way to the Republican convention, but a string of massive losses in the Northeast, and his subsequent defeat in Indiana, appear to have convinced him there’s no way forward.

What a disappointing day for conservatives.

Please consider this passage from Buckminster Fuller:

If you take all the machinery in the world and dump it in the ocean, within months more than half of all humanity will die and within another six months they’d almost all be gone; if you took all the politicians in the world, put them in a rocket, and sent them to the moon, everyone would get along fine.

These are true words. And if they are true about machines, how much more do they apply to the people who create those machines?

The progress of the world waits for the productive man and woman to stop flagellating themselves. It’s waiting for them to stand up and act like what they are.
