    Ha, I saw that on Facebook yesterday. Apparently Ted Cruz wasn't born when the Zodiac Killer had already begun killing, so it's unlikely. Did you see the one where a group of people apparently believes that Katy Perry is Jon-Benet Ramsey?

    I read that, too, and it is ridiculous. I think that it was probably the same kind of thing as where they interview people on the street and ask them questions like "When was the Civil War" and people have NO clue when it was or what it was even about.
    Since the zodiac killer was a long time ago, younger people would maybe have heard the name, but do not remember when it happened .
    On Facebook , it showed a picture that could have been I liar to Ted Cruz, and if people were asked if that person (Cruz) looked like the drawing of the zodiac killer, then many of them might have said yes, he did.

    So many of these people do not even know who the VP of the United States is, let alone Ted Cruz. it is not at all surprising that they answered this way.
    I remember that people also thought that MLK was supporting Obama , and had no idea that he was dead all these long years.

    This garbage makes a mockery of our system and country. Oh, it's not just MLK/Obama, @Yvonne Smith ... they had it spreading around that MLK, Jr. was supporting Trump. I think Kimmel was involved. Mockery. :mad:

    Yes I did...and it would be nice if Katy Perry was Jon-Benet since she would still be alive then.

    Well if the Candidates hadn't opened their mouths and acted like clowns in the first place...there wouldn't be anything to feed off.

    Our government officials have made a mockery of the system and our country. They are just reaping what they have sown.

    You are right, I knew that it was something that I have seen recently. I don't watch much tv; but think I saw this on a YT video.
    It is sad that people are so ignorant about life in general and our government in particular. They had no clue that MLK jr. WAS the same one that they remembered hearing about that was killed so many years ago.

    I do not think that these interviews reflect poorly on the candidates themselves, @Babs Hunt . The candidates do not have anything to do with the TV interviews, and it is the people who are showing their ignorance.
    They do polls about things like why do we celebrate July 4th, and people have no clue about that either. Even the ones that figure out it has something do do with our independence do not know the dates, or even whom we wanted to be independent from.
    Most of them seemed to guess it had something to do with China, and they believed that Jesse Ventura was one of our Founding Fathers.

    Here is an example , and these are not just college kids, these are adults who know absolutely none of our history.

    @Yvonne Smith...I was not speaking about the interviews. Only about the Candidates themselves making clowns out of theirselves when they open their mouths and behave like fools without any maturity at all. I can't respect that stupidity, especially in someone who wants to represent our Country as our President!:(

    Oh, sorry about that misunderstanding, @Babs Hunt ! You had started this forum thread about the PEOPLE who were silly enough to think that Ted Cruz could be the zodiac killer, when that was way back before Cruz was even born.
    The thread topic was not about the things that the candidates are doing, which is , of course, a completely different topic.
    I was on board with the original topic in my reply, and hadn't realized that you were discussing something totally different .
    I don't relate the two topics, and somehow missed your connection. Apologies......

    True... but... oh, I might take a hit for this but I'm tough... I will state that I'd SO much rather have a clown for President that what the other side is offering. There, I said it. Clueless people have advisers to help them through decisions, policy making, etc. Deceitful people have advisers who will help them deceive.

    I really don't like what either side is offering and now days those advisors are not to be trusted either. My heart wants to hope for the best...but all it is feeling is doom ahead of us.

    :) I see you spelled that the way I always want to spell it, but it's always underlined and red and even google does that... I learned it "advisor" too, but apparently things have changed since I was in school and journalism class. Doesn't look right with the "e"... never has. :D

    I can't give into a feeling of doom... I prefer hope. ;)

    I prefer hope too, but always pay attention to my intuition too. If I didn't spell something the right way, it sure won't be the first time or the last. :)

    No, I meant you spelled it the way that should be right, but spell checkers always underline it for me.

    In any case, yes, intuition. Thankfully mine says that everything will be okay no matter who gets to call the White House "home"... in the end, it's none of them who are in ultimate "control", right, @Babs Hunt ? ;)

    The really SCARY part about all of this is not the silliness of it, it is that these people are VOTERS ! How can we expect to elect a decent president if so many people have no clue about our country's history, not to mention knowing about what is happening in the world right now, and who our country's leaders and politicians are.
    When you do a YouTube search about Ted Cruz and zodiac killer, there are all kinds of videos out there.

    Those of us who are Baby Boomers (and ones close to that designation) are probably the ones that are paying close attention to what is happening now, and were also taught good history classes in school. We used to be the larger group of people ;but now the younger groups outnumber us.
    I am seriously hoping that thi is not a real campaign ad for Ted Cruz, or even one against him , for that matter.

    My spelling is usually pretty good, and "advisor" looks right to me -- in fact, my spell check tells me "advisor" is right.

    Mine always underlines it... in fact, there's a red line under the word you just typed, Ken. :) At least on my end... not sure how those things work or if we all see the same.

    It is scary! Our children, and their children are growing up in a world where the history books, etc. contain just as many lies as they do truth. And they are being taught that there is no right or wrong anymore, etc. As a Baby Boomer I am paying close attention to what is happening now...and it makes me sick to my stomach to see what is going on. It is a very sad situation when the couple of decent men who are running for President, do not have a chance of being elected for that job. I never thought I would live to see America fall so far. And I admit that I am scared to death for my children and grandchildrens' futures.

    So... @Babs Hunt ... or anyone for that matter. I assume most of us agree about the pit into which America has fallen. My question (for everyone to wax philosophical) is this... when did it start? What was the catalyst? An event? A person?

    Personally I'd have to blame the PC garbage that hit ludicrous levels after 9-11. Suddenly it's the worst thing in the world to OFFEND a culture just because a few nasties in their culture caused 9-11? And to the point of those horrid "PC Police" trying to take away "Merry Christmas?!" I keep waiting for *someone* to pull back on the reins with a mighty "WHOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HORSIE!!!" But it doesn't happen. :(

    @Mari North. When did it start? In my opinion it started when people started taking God out of "One Nation Under God".
