C.(rackpot) Cruz is the focus of today's 'toon that appears on Mondays in this blog. The dude was a super-wonk at both Princeton and Harvard Law. C. Cruz has a fatal flaw: Canadian birth. Black's Law Dictionary (9th Edition) defines "Natural Born Citizen" as "A person born within the jurisdiction of a national government." Rafael Edward (C.) Cruz was born in Canada's Alberta Province where Cruz's father operated a Calgary-based seismic-data processing firm for oil drillers. In this blogger's humble opinion, C. Cruz is an unnatural-born citizen of the United States. If this is (fair & balanced) pronouncement, so be it.
