4 Hack Ted Cruz can teach us how to be better travelers
Gary Leff at 18. February 2021.
Ted Cruz went to Cancun on Wednesday with his family. He says he only wanted to take his children, but the ticket was booked for Saturday’s return flight, then rescheduled for Thursday’s return flight, after he was heavily criticized for leaving the country when electricity and water melted in his home state due to a weather disaster worse than anything that had happened in the state in more than 30 years.
Even though I’m without power in my house in Austin, I’m not going to focus on whether the junior senator should leave now. It’s well washed. In this post, I’m more interested in how her trip to Cancun can teach us to be better travelers.

There are 4 things Ted Cruz knows about travel that most people don’t.
- Last minute babysitting dogs are easy to find, even during a pandemic. Many people are concerned about indoor encounters with people outside their homes during a pandemic. But if you leave the dog and the key, you can ask the sitter to come without contact. Just ask them to leave before you get home and open the windows (as long as you have heating).

- How do I get Covid 19 test results immediately. If entering the United States by air, a negative Covid-19 test is required within 3 days of flight. Senator Cruz spent one night outside the US and returned to the US, ergo, he must have gotten a negative Covid-19 test. If Senator Cruz (or his staff) can figure out how this works, everyone can get a negative test.

- How do you avoid a CDC quarantine upon returning to the U.S.? The CDC recommends a 7-day quarantine with a negative Covid 19 test 3-5 days after travel. Compliance with this quarantine order is included in President Biden’s executive order on Covid-19. Cruz, who has experience litigating before the Supreme Court, could argue that the separation of powers exempts him from the president’s order (his arguments haven’t always made it). I’m not suggesting we use that argument ourselves. But if we travel the world and don’t quarantine ourselves when we return to the United States, we can just say: I followed Ted Cruz’s example.

- How to get a cheap airport concierge escort. Airlines offer a personal escort to the airport, but this can be expensive. But you are the taxpayer, the agents are government employees, and some of them are at the airports. Just call them and ask for special help, after all they work for you.
Houston police chief @ArtAcevedo said officers from Sen. Ted Cruz asked his department for help at the airport on Wednesday in connection with his trip to Cancun, CNN has confirmed.
