Michele Bachmann – ‘GOP Ass-Hole of the Day’

Via: Raw Story

1

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has a plan to discourage immigrants from sending money back to families in other countries by taxing them at 100 percent.

The Minnesota Republican, who has in the past asserted children fleeing violence in Central America were “invading” the United States, told a conference call with Numbers USA last week that it “truly is war against the American people,” Right Wing Watch reported.

Bachmann opined that the solution to the crisis was to “deport right on the border,” and to confiscate Americans’ land if needed to “build a real fence.”

“Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, those countries are laughing at us because they’re making money with their corrupt governments in conjunction with these international criminal cartels, they’re all making money and kickbacks,” she noted.

What I believe we should do is have a 100 percent tax on remittances, the money that illegal aliens send back to these countries.” Bachmann explained.

“We would have phone call from the president of these countries in five minutes saying, ‘What can we do? We want to keep this money flowing into our economy.”

“Quote of the Day”

“The only thing that the media has speculated on is that it’s going to be various men that are running,” she replied.

“They haven’t speculated, for instance, that I’m going to run. What if I decide to run? And there’s a chance I could run.”

Conservatives Praise Antarctic Ice Sheet Melt as Beautiful Expression of Free Market

Via: Andy Borowitz – The New Yorker

A delegation of conservative members of Congress paid a visit to the West Antarctic Ice Sheet melt today to witness firsthand what one of them called “the most beautiful expression of the free market I’ve ever seen.”

The author of that remark, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin), said that he was awestruck after watching gigantic chunks of glacier disintegrate and crash to the sea.

“Every schoolchild in America needs to see this,” he said. “This is the free market at work in the way that God and Ayn Rand intended.”

Rep. Ryan said that watching the now-unstoppable Ice Sheet melt in action reaffirmed his belief in “the glory and might of free-market forces.”

“Now more than ever, I believe that government needs to get out of the way of glaciers,” he said.

~~~

Another member of the delegation, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota), decried what she called the “alarmism” surrounding reports of the collapsing Ice Sheet.

“The Ice Sheet melt is only a problem if you live in Antarctica, which, honestly, is a pretty dumb place to live,” she said. “Polar bears live in Antarctica because they have no choice, but we’re not polar bears.”

CORRECTION: Polar Bears live in the Arctic, and NOT Antarctica. And YES, the ice is melting there as well. (See Photo)

(2 of 2) Nancy Pelosi – “Quote of the Day”

Via: Huffngton Post

It took Nancy Pelosi just two words on Wednesday to take Michele Bachmann down.

The House minority leader was asked during a press conference what she thought of Bachmann’s intense denunciation earlier in the day of the Supreme Court’s historic rulings in favor of gay marriage. She replied with a shrug:

“Who cares?”

“Marriage was created by the hand of God. No man, not even a Supreme Court, can undo what a holy God has instituted.”
