Bachmann Calls for Civil Disobedience

We haven’t heard from Rep. Michele Bachmann in awhile, but it seems she’s right where we left her: The congresswoman from Minnesota told an audience it doesn’t have to obey the new health-care laws, should they pass. “Mark my words, the American people aren’t gonna take this lying down,” Bachmann said at a rally on Saturday. “We aren’t gonna play their game, we’re not gonna pay their taxes. They want us to pay for this? Because we don’t have to. We don’t have to. We don’t have to follow a bill that isn’t law. That’s not the American way, and that’s not what we’re going to do.” She went on, “This is dictatorial, what they are doing. we are not compelled to follow a non-law just because Obama and Pelosi tells us we have to.”

Maybe WE THE PEOPLE should ask the government NOT to pay this representative’s salary and benefits out of our tax money?  Is there any hope she convinced enough people from Minnesota NOT to fill out their census forms and therefore a representative will be cut from their state?

    On hard ball Chris talked about a recent survey of Tea party people.
    Which Republican they hated the most and which did they like the most.

    Hate was McCain, McConnell, Cantor and Bainnor.

    Liked, Palin, Bachman, Demint and Paul.

      And this is why the Tea Party is doomed to go nowhere but they do make alot of noise with belly aching.

      Their tactics are turning off the majority of Americans. Whenever the truth is outed that Fox News and Dick Armey is behind the Tea Party, their claim of wanting incumbents of both parties booted to the curb are lost.

  2. This poor woman, Michelle Bachmann, is bug-fucking nuts.

    Make a case otherwise – I dare you…

    Iggy I try the best I can not to argue with reality. YES she is!

    We’re all in agreement about her being a nutjob!

    Now, what does that say about the people who elected her?

      Some of them are worse, some probably rationalized “she’s better than a Democrat/Green whatever,” by their standards.

      But some probably just choose “R” without much thought, and still others probably voted for her because they like Bachman-Turner Overdrive.

      I mean, seriously. Ignorance is the norm.

    If the people of Minnesota do not want to fill out their census forms, then that is fine with me. Let them do without any federal funds for anything.

    The next time one of those bridges collapses – then they can find the money themselves and fix the damn thing!
