Wouldn’t it be great to see Republican presidential candidates Donald J. Trump and Senator Ted Cruz go at it code duello after dragging each other’s wives into the debate?
Here’s Cruz: “It’s not easy to tick me off. I don’t get angry often, but you mess with my wife, you mess with my kids that will do it every time. Donald you’re a sniveling coward. Leave Heidi the hell alone,” according to CBS News This Morning.
“It is not acceptable for a big loud New York bully to attack my wife,” Cruz said.
If Ted Cruz is seriously offended isn’t it in our instinct to settle a fight with fists and not empty rhetoric? How many times have we seen this instinct play out in bars across the country? Doesn’t this tell us that it’s part of our human species to settle fights for real and not just in empty rhetoric? We’ve seen too much empty rhetoric electing officials for too long. It’s time there actually be some manhood behind it? Let us not forget the emperor Constantine (272 AD – 337 AD) who went to war with competing emperor’s-to-be to claim his seat.
Here’s Hillary Clinton responding to the GOP infighting at a time when many are reflecting on the Brussels’s terror attacks, “The way you get eyes or ears is to be provocative, even extreme, to say things that are going to draw attention.”
The only sure bet to resolve the family attacks between Donald J. Trump and Senator Ted Cruz is code duello. The Republican pair should set a time and a place to resolve their differences before a national live audience so we can see who is really king of the Republican establishment. Instead of a pistol fight they could box it out in a legally sanctioned boxing match. I think it’s only fair.
Why are we allowing our country to be ruled by men so past their prime? We need to survive for the next million years. That calls for urgency. Only can a young man can muster the urgency with which Conway Whittle used to navigate the confederate battleship Shenandoah through enemy territory, massive storms and arctic ice.
We must urgently reduce our carbon footprint. Nowhere online will you find a soul as passionate for this change in our human behavior as I. We can reduce our carbon footprint. We went through hundreds of thousands of years without using carbon fuels. We can solve climate change and put human civilization on the path to a million years survival at the least.
