Michele Bachmann Aligns Herself with Radical Christian Group

UPDATE: Michele Bachmann is not alone in the signing of this radical pledge.  I’m sure it will come as no surprise that Rick Santorum has signed the pledge as well.  He didn’t really have a snowball’s chance in Hell of winning the GOP nomination, but Michele did. According to Huffington Post, Tim Pawlenty is “reviewing the pledge.” Jon Huntsman has balls, he’s NOT doing it. I’d like to note here that, also according to Huffington Post, Santorum approached the radical Christian group, as did Bachmann.

The “Christian” group – Family Leader – has published a pledge that Presidential Candidate, Michele Bachmann, has signed.  The pledge includes “Personal fidelity to my spouse.” as well as, “Official fidelity to the U.S. Constitution, supporting the elevation of none but faithful constitutionalists as judges or justices.” The latter statement is humorous, as portions of the rest of the statement are totally against the First Amendment of the Constitution: “Rejection of Sharia Islam and all other anti-woman, anti-human rights forms of totalitarian control.” The President of the United States doesn’t get to reject Islam. We have religious freedom in this nation. In fact, the Pledge later admits that we have religious freedom. Apparently, they just care about their own religious freedom and no one else’s.

Wait, there’s more…

The group shows their true race colors:

Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African American baby born after the election of the USA’s first African-American President.

That would be quite a feat – if it were true. They totally ignore the fact that slave children were often ripped from their mothers to be sold somewhere else and, many times, were the Masters’ own children to boot. Of course, Bachmann has already proven that she knows nothing about our nation’s history, especially when it comes to slavery. And, the study they were quoting? Completed in 2005 and only went back to 1880 – long after slavery ended.

Isn’t it time that we put a stop to the religious fanatics in this country?  Shouldn’t we all be able to live in freedom?

When it comes time to vote for Bachmann, let’s not and say we did.  If she wants to align herself with these religious radicals, then she shouldn’t become President of these United States.

 

House Bans Base Chaplains’ Religious Freedoms

The House voted to ban Base Chaplains from being allowed to perform same-sex marriages. Talk about a blow against religious freedom. If a Chaplain’s religion or his own religious beliefs do not prevent him from performing a same-sex marriage, who the hell is the House of Representatives to prevent the marriage from taking place. I swear it is like the right-wing House hasn’t read the same Constitution as the rest of us.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;”

Shame on those House members who voted for the ban.

Jobs

Newt Gingrich posted on Twitter: “When will President Obama recognize his big govt policies don’t work?”

Our “big government” is the smallest it’s been for years. Obama’s policies are good for the country, not bad. The Republicans can say they’re against big government, but why aren’t they cutting the money we give to to oil companies?

Then, he posted: “Jobs numbers are also further proof that tax increases as part of a debt ceiling deal are unacceptable.”

No, Newt, they’re not. They’re further proof that unskilled workers and middle-management can’t find jobs. It is further proof that if you can’t sell your house to move to a new location, you’re going to stay unemployed. If you have skills and, especially if you have a college education, you can find a job right now in nearly any market. You just have to have the right skills and be in the right place.

Crap – Concealed Carry in Wisconsin

With everything that has been going on in my life, I managed to miss the fact that Concealed Carry was up for discussion.  Well, it passed – according to Cheryl, I haven’t even seen a news report.  Since I have not read the law, nor seen any of the debate, I won’t say if I was pro or con.  If the one passed was like the one Governor Doyle vetoed, then I’m against.

Now, only the lone state of Illinois is concealed carry free.

I wonder, if they surveyed the state’s residents, how many would support this?  I, also, wonder how many jobs this is going to create?  Because while Walker and friends have been eliminating some rights and passing concealed carry, I haven’t seen the unemployment rate get any better.
