Senator Ted Cruz Stole
One Of His Favourite Jokes
From A Canadian Politician
January 31st, 2016
The Globe and Mail
Selected And Adapted Excerpts
On January 30th, 2016, at a rally in Ames, Iowa, Senator Ted Cruz busted out a NIFTY LITTLE APHORISM to describe the meddlesome nature of the federal government he intends to vastly cut back if he wins the U.S. presidency.
Mr Cruz is an American politician and the junior U.S. Senator from Texas. He is a Republican candidate for President of the United States in the 2016 presidential election.
It’s one of Cruz’s FAVOURITE LINES, apparently, repeated at scores of campaign stops across the Hawkeye State ( Iowa ) in the weeks leading up to Monday’s caucuses.
Asks the Texas Senator …
What’s the difference between regulators and locusts ?
You can’t use pesticide on the regulators.
― Senator Ted Cruz, January 30th, 2016
Ted Cruz Borrowing A Phrase From Ralph Klein
If Mr Cruz’s quip sounds familiar, it’s because it was CRIBBED from former Alberta Premier Ralph Klein.
In 1990 Mr Klein, then a first-term Member of the Legislative Assembly ( MLA ) from Calgary, described the City of Edmonton as …
A fine city with too many socialists and mosquitoes.
At least you can spray the mosquitoes.
Of course, Mr Cruz would hardly be the first politician to BORROW A PHRASE.
Ronald Reagan Borrowing A Phrase From Mitchell Hepburn
For instance, Ronald Reagan liked to tell a joke about standing on a big pile of manure while campaigning at a farm.
The punchline ―
That’s the first time I’ve ever given a Republican speech from a Democratic platform.
That anecdote was lifted from Mitchell Hepburn, Premier of Ontario from 1934 to 1942.
With Mr Hepburn, a Liberal, he described his impromptu stage of fertilizer as a « Tory ( Conservative ) Platform ».
Bill Clinton Borrowing A Phrase From Neil Kinnock
And one of Bill Clinton’s best lines in his 1992 presidential campaign ―
Together we can make the country we love the country it was meant to be.
This sounded UNCANNILY SIMILAR to British Labour Leader Neil Kinnock ―
Together we can transform Britain from the country she has become to the country she can be.
More On Ted Cruz
But Mr Cruz’s choice of source material is particularly intriguing given his attempts to distance himself from his Alberta past.
Born in Calgary to a Cuban father and American mother in 1970, Mr Cruz has faced repeated questions about whether his Canadian birth makes him ineligible to be president.
Mr Cruz even went so far as to formally renounce his Canadian citizenship in 2014 to try to put the matter to rest.
That hasn’t stopped Donald Trump from needling him on the matter at candidates’ debates.
And protesters dressed in Red Serge waving « Ted Cruz Likes Nickelback » signs have shown up at some of his rallies in Iowa.
The Red Serge refers to the jacket of the dress uniform worn by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Still, if Mr Cruz is going to CRIB from any Canadian politician, perhaps it’s not surprising it’s from Mr Klein.
Not only was the late King Ralph eminently quotable ( you could fill a book with his one-liners ), but he and Mr Cruz were ideological soul mates.
Mr Klein slashed Alberta’s budget, paid off the province’s debt and even once blew up a hospital to cut health care costs.
It’s unlikely Mr Cruz ever crossed paths with him in Calgary.
Mr Cruz decamped to Texas in his early childhood, when Mr Klein was still a television reporter.
But, if Mr Cruz wins the presidency, it’s a sure bet he will be emulating more than just the former Alberta premier’s rhetoric.

Communities and businesses are being HARMED and DESTROYED and RAPED by LUNATIC-TERRORISTS who ARBITRARILY AND RECKLESSLY IMPOSE PROHIBITIONS against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape and by the Agriculture Industry, and who PERPETRATE OTHER ACTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM.
We are living in the 9|11 Era of Anti Pesticide & Environmental Terrorism where at least ONE SUBVERSIVE ACT OF TERRORISM is perpetrated EVERY SINGLE DAY by LUNATIC-TERRORISTS.
A LUNATIC is a person whose actions and manner are marked by extreme recklessness.
The RECKLESS ACTS OF SUBVERSION by these LUNATIC-TERRORISTS has led to the ARBITRARY IMPOSITION of Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION in several jurisdictions throughout North America.
The result was CATASTROPHIC CARNAGE !
Because of LUNATIC-TERRORISTS, provinces like Ontario now have a TRAIL OF ECONOMIC DESTRUCTION WITH HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES DESTROYED and THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT OF WORK, a MORE DANGEROUS OUTDOOR ENVIRONMENT, and a BLACK MARKET IN PESTICIDES.
Only TRUE LUNATICS would wish to create a TRAIL OF ECONOMIC DESTRUCTION WITH HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES DESTROYED and THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT OF WORK.
Because of LUNATIC-TERRORISTS, we are living in the DARK AGE OF ANTI PESTICIDE TERRORISM where sound science is trumped by FAKE SCIENTISTS, JUNK SCIENCE and UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE through FABRICATION, INNUENDO, and INTERNET RUMOR ― scientific research PROVES that pest control products will CAUSE NO HARM and can be USED SAFELY.
An informed public is better able to protect itself and its communities and businesses from LUNATIC-TERRORISTS who are THE LEAST QUALIFIED TO PROVIDE ANY ADVICE about pest control products or the environment.
NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm the Green space and other industries, and the well-being of our communities.
NORAHG morally represents the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of people associated with turf and ornamental plant maintenance who are OPPOSED to LUNATIC-TERRORISTS and their Anti Pesticide PROHIBITIONS, resulting in the CLOSURE or ABANDONMENT of green spaces under the RIDICULOUS PRETEXT CONCOCTED BY LUNATICS of somehow « saving » the environment.
NORAHG is a NATIONAL NON-PROFIT NON-PARTISAN organization that does not accept money from corporations or governments or trade associations, and represents NO VESTED INTERESTS WHATSOEVER.
NORAHG is dedicated to reporting PESTICIDE FREE FAILURES, as well as the work of RESPECTED & HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS who promote ENVIRONMENTAL REALISM and PESTICIDE TRUTHS.
NORAHG strikes back against the MYTHS concerning the need for prohibition against pest control products.
NORAHG RESPONDS on behalf of the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of THE PUBLIC THAT DOES NOT WANT PESTICIDE BANS, and SUPPORTS those who work in the Professional Lawn Care Industry, the Golf Industry, and the Agriculture Industry.
RESPECTED & HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS
THE MYTHS ABOUT BANNING PESTICIDES
VAST SILENT MAJORITY
NORAHG is opposed to PESTICIDE FREE jurisdictions where LUNATIC-TERRORISTS have DOOMED CHILDREN to SUFFER INJURIES since Anti-Pesticide PROHIBITION inevitably leads to public and residential green spaces that become DANGEROUS AND PEST-INFESTED GARBAGE DUMPS.

NORAHG is concerned that, because of PESTICIDE FREE MAINTENANCE of parks and sports fields, CHILDREN ARE AT HIGHER RISK OF SUFFERING INJURIES with DANGEROUS PLAYING SURFACES CREATED BY #@!!% PESTICIDE BANS.
CHILDREN ARE NOT AT RISK
NORAHG pledges to deliver comprehensive reports that are worthy of peoples’ time and of peoples’ concern, reports that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet.
NORAHG was the brainchild of William H Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991. Mr Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.
Force Of Nature was launched by NORAHG for CONTINUOUS transmission on the Internet on January 1st, 2009 ― however, the VERY FIRST Stand-Alone Force Of Nature Report was issued on September 19th, 2008.
On March 15th, 2010, Uncle Adolph independently launched The Pesticide Truths, an easy-to-use Web-Site that collects relevant reports of information right-off-the-press.
Primus inter pares, first among equals, describes Pesticide Truths, Uncle Adolph, and Force Of Nature ― they are formally equal to each other and are all accorded equal respect.
The reports and blogs from Pesticide Truths, Uncle Adolph, and Force Of Nature, in some ways, are like Google for everything concerning the SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES of Anti-Pesticide and Enviro-Lunatic Terrorists.
Many of these reports and blogs provide a sequence of historical events WITH COMMENTARY, the neutrality of which might be disputed.
This is what we do. Don’t thank us. It’s a public service. And we are glad to do it.
