Big Bad Ted Cruz Scares Dingy Harry


No, seriously:

Reid calls Sen. Cruz a ‘schoolyard bully’

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) called freshman GOP Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) a “schoolyard bully” during a contentious exchange Monday on the Senate floor.

The two senators bickered as Cruz rose to object to Reid’s motion to appoint conferees to a House-Senate budget committee.

Cruz said he was concerned that the conference report—which cannot be filibustered—would be used to raise the nation’s debt ceiling. He asked that Reid amend his motion to go to conference to make out of order any provisions raising taxes or raising the debt ceiling.

Reid said Cruz had a chance to amend the Senate budget—which raises $975 billion in new tax revenue from tax reform—when it was considered on the floor.

He said Cruz’s request to eliminate all taxes in a final House-Senate budget was absurd.

“The senator from Texas was on the losing side…now he wants us to adopt the losing side’s view or we cannot go to conference,” Reid said.

“My friend from Texas is like a schoolyard bully,” Reid added.

“He pushes everybody around and is losing and instead of playing the game according to the rules, he not only takes the ball home with him, but he changes the rules that way no one wins except the bully who tries to indicate to people that he has won.”

Cruz, a Tea Party darling whose rhetoric has sometimes raised eyebrows among Republicans, shot back that “I wasn’t aware we are in the schoolyard.”


I guess somebody forgot to tell Ted he’s gotta wait 20 years before he speaks up while the Senate is in session.

    Why not, it works for Obama:

    Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill stood in federal court Monday and compared her experience in the music business to the slavery her ancestors endured before a judge sentenced her to three months in prison for failing to pay about $1 million in taxes over the past decade.

    “I am a child of former slaves who had a system imposed on them,” Hill said before U.S. Magistrate Madeline Cox Arleo. “I had an economic system imposed on me.”

    Hill, who started singing with the Fugees as a teenager in the 1990s before releasing her multiplatinum 1998 album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” pleaded guilty last year to failing to pay taxes on more than $1.8 million earned from 2005 to 2007. Monday’s sentencing also took into account unpaid state and federal taxes in 2008 and 2009 that brought the total earnings to about $2.3 million.

    May 31, 2008 comes to mind Harry.

  6. Totally off topic, but this story has me gobsmacked. http://www.cleveland.com/metro/index.ssf/2013/05/tv_station_reports_berry_dejes.html

    CLEVELAND, Ohio — Long-missing Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight have been found alive.

    Berry called police Monday afternoon and frantically told a dispatcher that she was alive and free after being kidnapped 10 years ago and held captive in a house on Seymour Avenue on the city’s West Side. DeJesus was with her.

    A third woman, Michelle Knight, who has been missing since 2002, was also found at the house.

    We’ve confirmed it’s them,” a detective said. “They are alive and safe.”

    Berry, now 27, DeJesus, 23, and Knight, 32, were taken to MetroHealth Medical Center. The FBI and police will interview the women when they are discharged, the detective said.

      Sheesh!

      When I was in school, actual pencil stabbings were pretty common. The boys would brag about how many layers of skin they had pierced. I’m pretty sure they did it to attract girls, judging from all the pencil scars my husband has.

      I bet that would be a felony today.
