Bachmann to protesters: Stop blaming free market

Nov 3, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The State

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.

This makes you either ignorant or a liar.Dont feel bad either arty is anti White and all of them should be thrown out pof office on their asses
Dear little, small, weak Nazi fascist nutter, I have no idea what your local politics entail- and perhaps your DINO was owned by the right wing insurance industry as much as all Rethuglicans are owned by Koch Industries.

You bitch about mandatory auto insurance, which is a good thing if you insist on driving as a privilige, it's not a "right" as the Nazi Rethuglicans always assert.

But I'm sure you support your Koch Party owned and operated RNC in Wisconsin, for which your Chancellor Walker will pay the ultimate price for in his all-but assured recall next January.

You sit by while corporate fascists sell off your state assets to Rethuglican Nazi owned and operated businesses, and will continue to pay higher taxes as they suck the life's blood out of the Wisconsin taxpayer, all of it going to "privatized" government services.

Grow up and realize you're part of the problem.

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.
All garbage except for ending our dumb wars and dumping Obamacare (in favor of single-payer, of course).

The government "takes" our money as taxes and distributes it through the budget in a variety of ways, some of which are direct benefits to those in need. Now you can argue whether that's done PROPERLY (I'd argue that myself) but there's NO debate for me that it SHOULD be done, or that words like "theft" and "confiscation" are jokes.

Ideological Righties just aren't smart people. Period.

Free market? like giving three quarters of a trillion dollars to wall street to cover their gambling losses and handing the taxpayer the bill? Thats not a free market, it's a free ride.The protesters are right. Bachmanns a hack
Exactly.

It's 'free market capitalism all the way!' when it involves shipping jobs overseas, maximizing the bottom line at the expense of the American worker, and padding executive salaries and stock prices.

But when it goes wrong, and it ALWAYS does, it's 'why aren't you stepping in to SAVE THE ECONOMY, for god's sake!'

Every time.

$14 trillion in debt and counting with no effort of reversal is the joke. And it IS theft and confiscation if spending projections automatically go up with no regard to their affordability.

New Hampshire used to not have mandatory insurance. Not sure if that still holds true.

Yes many states if you provide a bond you do not have to buy car insurance.

Seems to me that all of the name calling, and inference of ignorance on both sides is nothing more than an exercise in futility. There is a great divide between the left and the right that will never narrow. The only common ground is that both sides disagree on almost every level.

One item that screams out at me is the idea that somehow there will be equality among the masses if a government entity collects all the goodies and distributes them. The problem with this concept is it ignores basic laws proven by science; like physics. Objects at rest tend to stay at rest, and objects in motion tend to stay in motion without some outside force. Now this law has to do with basic matter but it applies to people in that those whom are complacent with doing nothing will continue to do nothing and those whom toil at producing something will produce something.---- In short, the few will be supporting the many. I propose that those whom think(even though it has been tried and failed many times over) this is a good concept should be free to set up an organization within the government for the United states lite. Everyone whom wants to participate in the collective can just sign right up(now, nobody can be denied of course irregardless of their intent to produce anything or not) and then the shadow government here can distribute everything you fucking retards produce amongst you and the millions of parasites that will flock to your organization.

Everyone whom prefers not to join the collective would be set up under another united states lite-2 where you pay oh say a 8% flat tax and the federal government cannot borrow, nor spend more than they have coming in.

The two sides here can then set up their own regulatory entities within their own groups and change how they do things as they vote to change.

I am just wondering how the two sides would turn out after say 4 years.
