Bachmann to protesters: Stop blaming free market

Nov 3, 2011 Full story: The State 148

Casting the Wall Street protestors as misguided, Republican presidential contender Michele Bachmann on Thursday said their frustrations should instead be directed at Washington politicians who protect their allies and put unfriendly companies out of business.

Looks like none of the people here have lived long enough to remember, "CONGRESS CHANGED BANKRUPCY LAW" & "TOOK AWAY INDIVIDUAL HOME STEAD ACT" . The Banks planed this. The forclosure crisis, "was planed". Are all of you stupld ?
How can you say the housing crisis was planned??
Just because the banks bundled the Mortgages they knew were going to fail into big securities, then sold those securities to others knowing full well they would fail, that doesn't mean they planned it, it just means they were doing good banking.

Leave the poor banks alone.
They only control 92% of our economy. So how can the banks be responsible for our current situation?
It's the Democrat president who did this.
Obama did this when he invaded Afganistan in 2001
Obama did this when he started a war in 2001 that was supposed to be an "in and out" operation and did not legislate any funding for it.
It's Obama, It's Obama, It's Obama!

Leave those poor bankers alone...
(this is intended to be sarcasim...some of you repub and teabags believe this to be true, but alas, you are misinformed)

And by the way....
The only "in and out" operation of our mid east excursion of death and occupation, was when Obama masterfully had Bin Laden killed like the dog he was.

I know, according to liberals, there is never too much money the Federal government can confiscate from it's citizens to satisfy it's greed for our money, so let me simplify an earlier post:

Repeal Obama Care.

Repeal Bush's Prescription Drug Program.

Repeal Dodd/Frank.

End military involvement in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.

Return to 2000 spending levels.

Balance the budget.

We are over $14 trillion in debt and the ONLY people worried about this fact are Tea Party people.

Rep Bachmann needs to stay in the race as long as physically possible to keep these ideas on the table.

If you look at her main talking points and ideas, she is stealing pages from Ron Paul's play book. Why vote for her when the real person out there talking about Liberty and restoring this country is Ron Paul? The initial grassroots tea party movement was Ron Paul supporters.

Besides Bachmann is one of the chritian conservatives that hijacked the tea party movement when it began to gain momentum. She may sit there as say limited government, but she is as much a big government conservative as many republicans.

i totally agree with michelle.

if you have no job, you must not want one. if you can't feed your family, stop having children.

abolish adc, food stamps, medicare, social security, and all other so called "social safety nets." and btw, let's repeal the federal emergency room care laws.

let's recreate the dickens-inspired poor houses. mega churches are rich corporate entities. let them fund these poor houses.

look at the jobs these poor houses will create.

i see nothing but upside benefits with these proposals.

Gov't bailouts and corporate welfare is not capitalism, it's not capitalism people should be pissed about, it's gov't injecting money into failing businesses instead of letting the free-market decide. Huge difference people simply fail to grasp. Gov't is the reason why the rich keep getting richer at the expense of us.

One former FBI agent is finding out firsthand that freedom of speech isn’t something guaranteed to every American. Colleagues at the CIA are keeping him from printing some of his own personal accounts in an upcoming book about the 9/11 attacks.
In his upcoming book “The Black Banners: The Inside Story of 9/11 and the War Against Al Qaeda,” Ali H. Soufan wants to write that the Central Intelligence Agency could have had a chance at keeping the September 11 terror attacks from happening. Soufan says that the CIA knew about two of the hijackers involved in the al-Qaeda plot, and while that information might have been of great interest to the FBI, the Central Intelligence Agency withheld the crucial information.
Specifically, Soufan says that the CIA had detailed information on 9/11 hijacker Abu Zubaydah as early as January 2000 but neglected to act on it.
Also in his memoirs, Soufan writes detailed accounts of CIA interrogations tactics that he saw brutally executed firsthand by agents, which were unnecessary and counterproductive. The agency is asking the author to remove the pronouns “I” and “me” from that chapter as if to discredit his personal accounts from specific incidents.
Unfortunately, Soufan’s stories might never make it to print if the CIA has their say. The former agent says that he is being told to take out key parts from his tales, and he believes it isn’t because of a national security scare, but because the CIA doesn’t want to be reflected poorly to the public.
As if that was even possible!
In a report released yesterday by The New York Times, Soufan’s attorneys claim that they received word that the CIA could end up “embarrassed” by the author’s allegations. Soufan responded to the Times that it is “ridiculous” that they are redacting so much material from his book, but that he will rally to have the information published in further editions.
Much of the material found in Soufan’s book has been available online and in print in the decade since 9/11, but the CIA says that doesn’t mean he can go ahead and talk about it. "Just because something is in the public domain doesn't mean it's been officially released or declassified by the U.S. government,” CIA spokeswoman Jennifer Youngblood said in a statement.
Upon originally sending a proof of the 600-page manuscript to the Bureau, Soufan was told to prove that dozens of names listed in the document were not classified. He opted simply to substitute aliases for many of the names, but meanwhile the CIA sent the FBI a copy. Their response? Nearly 200 pages of suggested cuts.
With a deadline approaching, Soufan’s “The Black Banners” will hit the printing press this week, with the first edition using all of the cuts demanded by the FBI.

The insurance mandates are a construct of the Republican Reich.

All health insurers are Fascist right wing run organizations, espcially United Health Care, Cigna, Wellpoint, Humana, and Spectrum, all REICH WING owned and operated.
