Ted Cruz: Kirk is a conservative, Picard is a liberal



Ted Cruz told the New York Times that he identified with Star Trek's Captain Kirk more than Captain Picard because he felt that Kirk was more of a conservative and Picard more of a liberal.

Kirk is working class; Picard is an aristocrat. Kirk is a passionate fighter for justice; Picard is a cerebral philosopher. The original ‘‘Star Trek’’ pressed for racial equality, which was one of its best characteristics, but it did so without sermonizing.

He's right.

Kirk:

o stole cloaking device technology from the Romulans (The Enterprise Incident)

o Destroyed a Romulan attacking ship to show the Romulans that the Federation wasn't weak (Balance of Terror)

o Destroyed a communist-inspired computer that controlled everyone's behavior (Return of the Archons)

o Allowed his naive liberal girlfriend to die so she could not persuade America to disarm (City on the Edge of Forever)

o Fought tribal arab-like extremists with killer frisbees (Friday's Child)
o Fought space Nazis (Patterns of Force)

0 Foght Romans in gladiator arenas (Bread and Circuses)

o Overturned a society ruled by ignorant women who steal men's brains to control their government (Spock's Brain)

o Join forces with a reincarnated Abraham Lincoln to fight Klingons.

Picard:

o Informed the Romulans that the Federation was secretly making cloaking devices (The Pegasus)

o Goes to the Boko Haram planet where he permits black fanatics to abduct Lt. Yar. (Code of Honor)

o Lectures someone revived from the 20th that money is of no further importance (the Neutral Zone)

o Returns a human boy who was abused to his adopted alien family because in the alien culture, it is ok to beat up young boys (Suddenly Human)

o Arrests a scientist whose crime is to kill a mass murdering monster (Silicon Avatar)

o approves of Riker's romance with an androgynous creature (The Outcast)

o Refuses to destroy the entire Borg threat because there would be one innocent casualty (I Borg)

What about the other candidates? Do you think Jeb Bush identifies with Captain Picard? And do you think Lindsey Graham identifies with Captain Kathryn Janeway?

Remember when restaurants and other businesses used to have signs reading "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone"? You probably don't see such signs any more. Business are afraid of lawsuits. 50 years ago such policies were sometimes used to exclude blacks, but mostly such policies were used to maintain standards in the place of business. You wouldn't want to serve people wearing T shirts, shorts and flipflops in a fancy restaurant, or customers who were noisy or disruptive.

Does Obama's racial schizophrenia cause him to lash out at white America?


When I first heard about the "racial database" that Obama is putting together, it sounded really bizarre. Obama is going to collect an unprecedented amount of local and personal information to look for racial disparities, with an aim to make it easier for hungry lawyers and racist groups to lodge "shake down" lawsuits.
