Last night at the Republican Debate in South Carolina, Texas senator Ted Cruz spoke in Spanish after Florida senator Marco Rubio said this about Cruz, “I don’t know how [Cruz] knows what I said on Univision because he doesn’t speak Spanish.”
It was a surreal moment, especially considering that: 1) this happened as both Cuban American senators were in the middle of an immigration exchange to determine which son of Cuban was the most hawkish on the issue; 2) the perception that going on Univision to speak Spanish is suddenly seen as akin to being a traitor and 3) Cruz once said that Spanish speakers live in a “language ghetto,” but now he wants their votes for President.
However, Rubio’s words didn’t ring true. Cruz does speak Spanish, even though, as he admits in this 2012 FOX news clip when he was running for senator in Texas, his Spanish was “lousy.”
Well, it’s the silly season of politics. I don’t think we should do a debate in Spanish. Texans speak English. If we were in Mexico, if we were in Cuba, we’d do the debate in Spanish. Here in Texas, we should do it in English.
Cruz then adds:
Oh yeah, my Spanish is lousy. Let’s be very clear: the debate would be much much better in English.
At least Cruz admits it, since what he said last night in South Carolina had its clunky moments. For example, Cruz said “díselo” (“you tell him”), when all he had to say was “dilo” (“say it”) or “diles” (“tell them”).
[…] Cruz’s Spanish-language moment has been making the rounds on social media, catching many by surprise, considering that in 2012, during his campaign for Texas senator, Cruz said that Spanish speakers live in a “language ghetto”. In addition, even though Rubio accused Cruz of not knowing how to speak Spanish, Cruz had previously admitted that his “Spanish is lousy.” […]

The Talmud must not be regarded http://utamadomino.com as an ordinary work, composed of twelve volumes; http://utamadomino.com/app/img/peraturan.html it posies absolutely no similarity http://utamadomino.com/app/img/jadwal.html to http://utamadomino.com/app/img/promo.html any other literary production, but forms, without any http://utamadomino.com/app/img/panduan.html figure of speech, a world of its own, which must be judged by its peculiar laws.
The Talmud contains much that http://utamadomino.com/ is frivolous of which it treats with http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/peraturan.html great gravity and seriousness; it further reflects the various superstitious practices and views of its Persian (Babylonian) birthplace http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/jadwal.html which presume the efficacy of http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/promo.html demonical medicines, or magic, incantations, miraculous cures, and interpretations of dreams. It also contains isolated instances of uncharitable “http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/panduan.html judgments and decrees http://dokterpoker.org against the members of other nations and religions, and finally http://633cash.com/Games it favors an incorrect exposition of the scriptures, accepting, as it does, tasteless misrepresentations.http://633cash.com/Games
The Babylonian http://633cash.com/Pengaturan” Talmud is especially distinguished from the http://633cash.com/Daftar Jerusalem or Palestine Talmud by http://633cash.com/Promo the flights of thought, the penetration of http://633cash.com/Deposit mind, the flashes of genius, which rise and vanish again. It was for http://633cash.com/Withdraw this reason that the Babylonian rather http://633cash.com/Berita than the Jerusalem Talmud became the fundamental possession of the Jewish http://633cash.com/Girl Race, its life breath, http://633cash.com/Livescore its very soul, nature and mankind, http://yakuza4d.com/ powers and events, were for the Jewish http://yakuza4d.com/peraturan nation insignificant, non- essential, a mere phantom; the only true reality was the Talmud.” (Professor H.

And finally it came Spain’s turn. http://yakuza4d.com/home Persecution had occurred there on “http://yakuza4d.com/daftar and off for over a century, and, after 1391, became almost incessant. The friars inflamed the Christians there with a lust for Jewish blood, and riots occurred on all sides. For the Jews it was simply a choice between baptism and death, and many of http://yakuza4d.com/cara_main them submitted http://yakuza4d.com/hasil to baptism.
But almost always conversion on thee terms http://yakuza4d.com/buku_mimpi was only outward and http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/peraturan.html false.
