#2 Ted Cruz Yesterday while surveying flood damage visiting my fellow Texans, I met a football coach from Marble Falls ISD, who I can attest is a true embodiment of Texas’ can-do spirit. In the face of disaster he remains resilient & a supporter to his fellow Texans in need. #texanshelpingtexans

Heidi Cruz says her eldest daughter, Caroline, was not supportive of her decision to take a leave of absence from her job at Goldman Sachs in 2015 to campaign for her husband, Ted.She says in a new profile in The Atlantic that Caroline, who was seven when the campaign started, asked if the job of first lady was paid.When Caroline learned that it was not, she allegedly told her mother: "That's a bad deal for you."

Ted Cruz's eldest daughter was apparently none-too-pleased that her mother took unpaid leave to help him campaign in the 2016 Republican presidential primary.

In a profile of Heidi Cruz in The Atlantic published Thursday, the wife of the Texas senator said her daughter Caroline, who was seven when the campaign started, was confused as to why she would leave her job as a managing director at Goldman Sachs to hit the campaign trail.

"I tried to articulate, you know, 'It's actually for the country, it's a much bigger project than ourselves.'" Cruz told reporter Elaina Plott. "And she wanted to know, if we won, was the first lady paid?"

When Cruz told her that it was not, Caroline allegedly responded: "That's a bad deal for you. We shouldn't do this."

Plott was skeptical Caroline actually said this. "I'm not sure whether this conversation happened word for word with her daughter," Plott wrote. "It may more accurately reflect one Heidi had with herself."

During the primary, Caroline made some headlines of her own, when television cameras caught her recoiling from her dad's kiss, and later teasing him during a CNN town hall about the fact that her school had footage of him in a pink feather boa for a daddy-daughter picnic.

While Cruz won the first primary, in Iowa, he started to drag behind then-Republican candidate Donald Trump, and eventually suspended his campaign in May.

He's currently running for reelection in Texas against Rep. Beto O'Rourke. As of Thursday, Cruz leads O'Rourke by an average of seven points, according to Real Clear Politics.

If anyone is interested I am Top40 online. In the real world my name is David Russell Ellenberger. I am a SWM 57 and live in Louisville, Ky. I started about 4 years ago. I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted the website to be about but I liked the idea of people voting on items in ranked lists. The voting on these ranked lists will move the items up or down in the rankings you vote by clicking the + or - buttons below or next to the item in a list, refresh the page and the item will then appear in it's new ranking. IMHO voting really is one of the most important things you can do. Your vote is literally worth millions of dollars and that's one thing the politicians want you to do but don't want you to think about in that way. In other words vote for me I'm the best and I'm for this I'm for that I am for all the things that you want and that's why should vote for me. In reality what its about is control over you and money. So next time you vote you should demand to get paid. But I digress that's voting on items is just one of the reasons I started I also wanted to get my point out to the people and hopefully other people will want to use my website to get their point out or at least create their own lists. I had hoped for this to be another social media website. That hasn't really happened and I have been online for almost 5 years now. More about that later.


Everyone thinks just put your website up and they will come but that's not really the case. Part of the problem is search engines like Google have almost complete control of the web and all the traffic on it and they want you to pay. They also don't like other social media sites or search engine type sites they are what's known in the business as viral sites or sites that mostly contain links and not much original content which is exactly what Google is. But I maintain that links are part of the branding and the way you show your links to the world is an original aspect of any website and part of the branding and is orginal content in and of itself. But Google doesn't think so, Because that's what they are and they of course want complete control and they have it and no one seems to care. I didn't care until I started this website. But again I digress.


Back to the point. Why I started this website. Well another reason was to make money you can sell things or you can put advertising on your website. You can go out and sell advertising yourself or simply sign up for advertising services that have already sold the advertising and put the ads on your website for you. Services like this from Google and it's advertising service called adsense. If you read up on the internet how to make money with a website You will eventually find Adsense and various websites will tell you you can make tens of thousands with website adverting its so easy. And that may be true just from a numbers point of view but then reality sets in. More coming in a few days. Thanks for reading....
