Sean Penn: ´Good Idea´ to
Have Ted Cruz Committed
for Mental Health Problems

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/29/2013 11:56:31 AM

"There´s a mental health problem in Congress," says actor and liberal activist Sean Penn. The president could solve the problem "by committing them by executive order," Penn told CNN´s Piers Morgan Monday night. Asked if Penn would have "people like Ted Cruz" committed, Penn said, "He is my American brother. I won´t -- I think we should take care of him, he is in, he´s the trouble." "Well, actually have him committed," Morgan followed up. "Yeah, I think it´s a good idea," Penn said. Penn, in a rambling way, also identified a "lack of education" as a "huge problem that we´re dealing with

Comments:
What an offensive Communist jerk he is. Cruz has more class in his little finger than this idiot ever will have.

Sean, people in glass houses should not throw stones. Do you really think you could get out of a mental institution if you ever woke up in one?

The most amazing thing about this, too me, is that Sean Penn will to his last breath proclaim his allegiance to the principles of democracy. And all the while he is espousing the same totalitarian world view as the worst of the 20th century dictators.

Under Stalin the mental hospitals in Russia were filled to overflowing. Until he just gave up the pretense and opened the gulags having ones political opponents declared mentally incompetant was a favored tool of political control. It seved a dual purpose, it removed the individual threat and it deligitimized the opposing view, after all it was only held by certifiable nuts, right?

Scratch a liberal too deeply and you will always find the seeds of tyranny.

Education problem? Won´t even waste time looking up Spicoli´s high school grades.
Got an "A" in pizza delivery and auto body repair.... maybe.

And Ted Cruz´ education?
Few if any can compare.

Friend of mine with a great sense of humor lives in SF, in Pelosi´s district,
and made favorable comments about Sean Penn a while back.
And her husband is a schoolteacher over in Marin County.
I´m waiting a little longer before axing how that O-BomberKommieKare is
workin´ out fer ´em so far...

As Good Ol´ Tipper Gore said, all Americans that she knows personally,
meaning 100 percent DimWitz and DimWitches, are mentally ill.

And here we have a prime example...
of Mister La Brea Tar Pits...
(close enough to Hollywood)...
pointing fingers at and calling a Modern Knight Who Shines Like Gold & Platinum...

BWA HA HA HA!!

Sean´s been droppin´ too much acid with Nancy Peyote.

Projecting, aren´t you, Sean?

When one sees Sean Penn speaking in real life, and not in a movie, it is really apparent the differences in formal education between the rambling, painfully dim witted actor and the eloquent and Princeton and Harvard educated Ted Cruz.

Lets contrast and compare:

Sean Penn - Santamonica Community College drop out

Ted Cruz - Graduated from Princeton University (Cum Laude) with a bachelor of arts degree in International Relations. While an undergraduate won the top speaker award at both the 1992 U.S. National Debating Championship and the 1992 North American Debating Championship. In 1992, he was named U.S. National Speaker of the Year and Team of the Year (with his debate partner, David Panton). Cruz was also a semi-finalist at the 1995 World Universities Debating Championship. Graduated from Harvard Law School (Magna Cum Laude). Editor of the Harvard Law Review. Executive Editor of the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy. Cruz was a John M. Olin Fellow in Law and Economics. While at Harvard he was described by Professor Allen Dershowitz as "off-the-charts brilliant".

Nah, I think I´ll stick with Cruz instead of a seedy self important Communist. Oh by the way, did you all know that both of Sean´s perents were card carrying members of the Communist Party in the 40´s & 50´s? Obviously Penn is imminently qualified to expound upon politics.

Sean Penn briefly attended college at Santa Monica College in California where he studied auto mechanics and speech.

I love how illogical lie-berals prove themselves to be every time they open their mouths.

So Sean wants the president to have the power for "committing them by executive order" for anyone who stands in the way of the president´s agenda?

Does Sean have a clue that once a president does that and gets away with it, the next president can do the same thing. The precedence has been set.

How is Sean going to like it when President Cruz gets his turn? Or President Palin? And those receiving the "committment" are nutcase lie-berals like Sean Penn?

Didn´t really think that through now, did he. Of course, I have never personally found a single case where any lie-beral really thought anything through. They just feel stuff and spew their hate-filled rhetoric based on those feelings. No place for those pesky logic, reason or facts to get in the way of a witty comment that other brain dead lie-berals will laugh and shake their heads in agreement with...

There was a place where the regime´s political opponents (when they weren´t shot or sent to the gulag) were often sent to mental institutions and pumped full of enough psychotropic drugs to turn a genius into a drooling, grinning idiot. That place was the Soviet Union of Stalin, Khrushchev, Brezhnev, and Andropov.

Because of rigid ideological indoctrination by his communist sympathizer parents, Sean Penn is himself a devoted communist whose model society is the old Soviet Union, where breaking heads trumped debate. This born fool who was taught the ways of violence from early childhood should be shunned.

On the way home from work I was listening to the Sean Hannity show. He played this simpering moron as he was throwing up his leftist rant about Senator Cruz. All I can say is that you prove how intelligent you are by the way you speak. I´ve come to the conclusion that Penn (head) is a flaming dimwit and isn´t fit to breathe the same air as someone like the senator from the great state of Texas. May he forever suffer from that disease that afflicts all liberals-cranalrectalitis.

But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
