|Senator Ted Cruz - Texas Nutshell|
So some of the airlines thought that this was a good idea and temporarily suspended service. They could have gone but they, like the FAA, thought the entire venture to be a bit dicey. Our FAA issued a prudent advisory and ban. Airlines agreed. Period. I would end this blogpost here but the Asshole of the Senate, the great Ted Cruz from the Republic of Texas offered this assessment:
""The facts suggest that President Obama has just used a federal regulatory agency to launch an economic boycott on Israel, in order to try to force our ally to comply with his foreign-policy demands," Cruz said in a statement in which he posed five questions about the agency's actions, including whether it was politically motivated. Cruz said later Wednesday he would block Senate confirmation on all State Department nominees until his questions were answered.
Where do we get people like this? Under what rock? Maybe we should strap his fat ass to the wing of a plane and fly him around for a while....he could be the early warning system.
