It's not exactly a fair fight. It would be like a match between Mike Tyson in his prime and the kid that played Webster.

If people are so scared about the rise of China and India, why do we keep sending them our jobs and buying all their products?

I'm sorry, but you don't get to biatch about other countries getting stronger when we are the ones making them stronger.

Has anyone mentioned that Basic History has much more than one point over Bachmann?
 
2011-08-18 06:41:44 PM
I'm also convinced that her staff is trolling her. Unless she really is this stupid and can make gaffe after gaffe without consulting anyone in her campaign.

/oh wait, I just answered it for myself

Yeah. It seems like the score would be much higher.

That's just what they want you to think with your grammar and shiat. DISTRACTIONS!

Right now, while you were reading that, a team of Unified Soviets snuck into your house and filled your kid's head with Communism.

Good luck getting that out.

...I guess that means we should probably stop with joint missions with the Russians then. Guess we should abandon efforts to work with the Ukraine too. And the Georgians, while we're at it--though, to be fair, we need to put some damn conditions on working with them, given that whole "We want to wipe out the Ossetians" thing.

Lack of basic understanding of how the world works was what killed my support of McCain in the last election--specifically his over reaction with the situation in Georgia and their rolling out of tanks on civilians that prompted a Russian response in the defense of the Ossetians.

This is a woman who hasn't the wit to understand the underpinnings of relations and her own history, let alone getting the US involved overseas in the affairs of other nations. Looking at the Russians or Ukraine as the Evil Empire doesn't really help things. The fact that one of our biggest trade partners is still a Communist nation doesn't impact on her radar, but the Russians are evil--the fact that there is no USSR anymore doesn't matter to her. Hell, she's probably got a plan to save us from the evil Prussian Empire too and the Golden Horde, which will be about as useful...

Because every Bachmann thread needs proof of her budgetary hypocrisy:

Rhino_man: If I were talking about Bachmann, personally, I'd post statistics about HER HOUSE DISTRICT, not her whole state. I'm pretty sure Minneapolis and St Paul pay the vast majority of Minnesota's federal taxes... but let's have a look at the numbers, shall we?

Minnesota's Sixth Congressional District includes most or all of Benton, Sherburne, Stearns, Wright, Anoka, and Washington counties. The district is Republican-leaning with a CPVI of R + 7. It is currently represented by Republican Michele Bachmann. [Citation]


I'll be multiplying the average household federal tax burden for each of these counties by the number of households in said county, and adding those numbers together.

Benton: $203,125,384
Sherbune: $434,504,704
Stearns: $795,888,600
Wright: $665,023,689
Anoka: $2,099,811,392
Washington: $1,934,451,090
Total: $6,132,804,859
[Citation]


Now, I'll be adding up the total Federal expenditures on those counties.
Benton: $322,559,024
Sherbune: $469,199,357
Stearns: $1,391,798,815
Wright: $1,183,484,219
Anoka: $2,011,284,827
Washington: $801,177,044
Total: $6,179,503,286

[Citation]


What does this mean? This means that, in 2004, Bachmann's district took more Federal money than it paid. Only Anoka and Washington counties took less Federal funds than they paid in taxes. That's not income tax, that's all Federal taxes.

Please note that this was 2004, when tax receipts were higher and Federal expenditures were significantly lower. This means that the figures for 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011, when they become available, will only be MORE scathing for Bachmann when they are released.

As if that weren't bad enough, she's now asking for additional funds, to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. She's not just standing in line for the soup kitchen, she's elbowing her way to the front.

There will be no Soviet domination of Eastern Europe under a Ford Bachmann administration.

How long you've been out of work man? Instead of complaining you should step out and look for a job.

Some Americans do still appear to be worried about the rise of the Soviets. The cold war anchored their lives and values and they can't let go. We get rid of PDX? Luckily, many found new meaning in 9/11.

/might as well add Brazil to that list
