A Letter To Disgruntled Cruz Supporters

It seems like none of the die hard Ted Cruz fans are able to move on from his inability to get nominated. I can hear you now, “Trump used his liberal friends to cheat and Kasich is that little rat-bastard who wouldn’t cooperate to defeat The Donald!” Well, unless your like Glenn Beck, who thinks that America is going to become a place of sin and wretched abominations where we only to send our children to hell and see God punish us for our disobedience; I have news for you about why he didn’t win, and you will not believe me.

He was not supposed to win. No, stop cussing at me. I know you are filled with the “righteous” anger of God and all, but simmer down. (No, I’m not a liberal, just listen without trying to invent some weird conspiracy about me.) In the Bible, when Joseph was sold to the slave traders, did anyone expect him to become the most powerful man in Egypt? No! They counted him dead!

I believe that Ted Cruz would make a terrible president, but as a senator, I believe that he can do great things. He can be the compass that keeps Trump on the right path. I know that is not a memorable achievement in life for some, but it can be the most important thing. All of the people that Trump overwhelmed have a talent that can be used to strengthen our country, and they can still use it!

Trump is not an idiot or a jerk, he is just not Politically Correct. Do not believe what the media wants you to believe. I have heard my Dad repeat liberal catchphrases without knowing where they came from. It seems like most people forgot how “liberal” the media was now that Trump is the target. MSNBC hates Trump, The Huffington Post, CBS, CNN, NYT; all of these outlets do not like Donald Trump. These are the same sources that you criticized for misrepresenting G.W. Bush. Now, for some reason, you are listening to them, and I bet it is because FOX News threw their hat in with Ted Cruz, and because that whole Megan Kelly thing ruffled a few feathers.

You are left with only one choice. You can vote for Hillary just to prove a point, but shooting yourself in the foot to show that it hurts is very foolish, but she will probably confiscate your guns before you can do that. Sanders is another option, but he is like Yoda: old and full of neat ideas that only work in a fictional world. There is no other candidate. Paul Ryan already said no several times, and the RNC also stated that trying to suddenly conjure an alternate at the last minute is a bad idea.

I suggest looking at what his supporters like about him. I did not like him at first. I was for Ben Carson, a man of peace and introspective wisdom. I watched a video of each of the remaining candidates (Jeb, Cruz, Kasich, Carson) to see how they handled themselves in a speech or an interview. I watched this video and slowly began to re-evaluate my opinion of the man. I saw a man and his wife that cared very much for their family. I liked the way he encouraged his wife to speak her mind even though she was timid to do so. I judge a man by the way he treats his family, and I was surprised with what I saw.

Don’t stay angry, Cruz is not God nor was he the savior of the U.S.A. Placing a man above God is not right. Look at who is left and try to see the plan. The world is all about negotiation now. Of all that ran, who is the best negotiator?


Unsafe Cola in Nigeria

In Nigeria, two half-full cans of Sprite have heated a lawsuit. The cans were discovered amid tension from the Nigerian people, who have claimed that Coca-Cola (the owners of Sprite) is putting their health at risk. Coca-Cola and the Nigerian Bottling Company (NBC) have been scrutinized for unsafe and unhealthy bottling practices. The issue was filed with the Consumer Protection Council (CPC), and neither Coca-Cola, nor NBC appeared when requested. This failure to appear is punishable by jail time, but it is unknown who would go to prison.

The half-full cans may sound petty, but the contents had evaporated. This means the product is not safely sealed and may grow mold or bacteria. Other complaints include rusty bottle tops, rusted interior linings, and foreign materials in the soda. The issue is one of health and a sanitary bottling process, which was why it was reported to the CPC.

However, Coke refused to even allow officials to inspect their bottling practices. The people of Nigeria have received this news and latest turn of events with outrage. They believe that Coke sees them as an inferior country, and bears no responsibility for their safety in consuming their products.

In Nigeria, Coca-Cola owns over 8 different brands, not including all of the diet varieties and optional flavors. Coke has a huge interest in Africa and has ongoing clean water campaigns for different regions. They produce an annual sustainability report, to try and implement a new awareness each year for environmental actions and workplace rights.

They do have a history of actions contrary to this. They have been taken to court for unsafe working conditions, alleged use of hit-men, bribery, and other strange things. Many suits have been settled out of court or been thrown out due to lack of evidence.
