Bachmann: "He's Coming For Our Food"
Edited on Wed Sep-16-09 03:13 PM by babylonsister
Teh stoopid, it hurts...bad!

http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/archives/individual/20...


HE'S COMING FOR OUR FOOD.... Back during the presidential campaign, Barack Obama noted, "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK." The comment, made 16 months ago, was obviously about over-consumption and America's role in the world.

A year and a half later, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is worried. "President Obama said we can't eat as much food as we want and think the rest of the world will be okay about that, as if that matters to freedom-loving Americans," she told her colleagues from the House floor this week.

"Well, we just heard last week that the Federal Government now under the Obama administration is calling for a re-ordering of America's food supply. What is that going to mean? Now will the White House decide how many calories we consume or what types of food we consume?"

Yes, Michele, that's exactly what it means. In fact, ACORN will now be responsible for preparing all foods in all households. President Obama will appoint a "dinner czar" to make sure you don't skip your vegetables. If you do, a "death panel" will decide whether you qualify for dessert.

2. We need universal health care now
To take care of these poor delusional people.

Michele Bachmann obviously suffers from stupid syndrome. But is isn't covered under current insurance plans because it was preexisting.

:crazy:

8. I didn't want to say anything, but President Obama was in Ohio the other day,
and he stopped by my house and personally confiscated my cheeseburger. He said it was for my own good and all, but I was kinda hungry, and I was really looking forward to eating it.

Now, I don't eat cheeseburgers all that much, so I didn't think it was such a big deal to have one once in a while, but those Secret Service guys looked like they meant business and I didn't want to cause any trouble, so I handed it over to him.

The only thing that really bothered me about the entire affair was when the president asked me if their was yellow, or spicy brown mustard on the cheeseburger, and I told him that I only use a nice brown mustard on my burgers. He gave me a thumbs up, and left.

As Marine 1 took off of my front lawn I swear to God I saw Mr. Obama eating my cheeseburger.

49. Damn, and some G-Men were at my door the other night
when I ordered some pizza! And, now that I think about it, there could have been a few black helicopters hovering above my house as well... but it was already dark out and they were black, after all.

They gave me a lecture on how the cheese wasn't good for my cholesterol and that I needed to lose a few pounds...

12. Yeah, it doesn't matter to freedom loving Americans who spend how much with the diet
industry? That someone else is starving. Especially if they aren't, God forbid, "American."

I hate her Bush era eff everyone else attitude. As if being "American" makes her so damn entitled to be a greedy hog. And I'm sure she would call us "UNamerican."

40. ...aannnd ANOTHER word perverted and stripped of honor...
When she says 'Freedom-loving Americans' in that context, I hear 'irresponsible, inconsiderate, self-centered, selfish, people with an entitlement-mentality who haven't quite grasped the concept that other people live on this planet, too...
and wouldn't give a damn about them anyway.'

Then you ask me 'Why do you hate freedom?'

44. When I think about it, this is the only place I do cuss. I actually
did say that some congressman was batshit crazy to my husband about a month ago. And the look he gave me was like "where did THAT come from?"

Kinda funny because we were in the military together and I'm sure he remembers the way we all talked back then. But growing up, having kids and having a civilian job certainly changes that. I need to watch and make sure that my language off the board doesn't get like my language on the board. Don't want to give my husband a conniption fit or anything. What IS a conniption, anyway?

Now there is one thing they have right....

With the end of cheap oil food yields are going down. A serious stat, according to the UN we have 1 Billion people world wide going hungry... and millions starving.

Less food, that will only go up.

45. Said the crazy lady who just asked her followers to FAST.
Bachmann: Prayer and fasting will help defeat health care reform

On Wednesday Rep. Michele Bachmann was part of a star-studded teletownhall meeting to discuss health-care reform. The event, billed Keeping Faith with the Unborn, was sponsored by the Susan B. Anthony List, an anti-abortion advocacy group. The organizations president, Marjorie Dannenfelser, claimed that there were some 350,000 listeners on the line.

Thats really where this battle will be won on our knees in prayer and fasting, she told the listeners. Remember: faith without works is dead. So were asking you to do all of it: pray, fast, believe, trust the Lord, but also act.

I wonder. They don't seem to grasp planning on a scale larger than putting stuff on a calendar.

All this "Freedom loving" is our plan. It's basically refusing to plan for the future of the country.

Could it be that they expect this country has no future? Doesn't seem too unlikely to me.
