Michele Bachmann ?

Oh yeah, was it not she who said Ron Paul had no business running for president or something on those lines ?

Her district's voters must kick her to the curb in the next election.

In the tussle that ensues from everyone attempting to pin his healthcare scarlet letter on his sleeve, BaaachMaannn and Herm the Sherm Cain (well what do you think he's smoking?) will collide and be knocked unconscious; only the astute will note much difference in their subsequent debate performance.

I cannot wait to watch Ron Paul also rip into Michele Bachmann. Ah hell, Ron Paul will probably rip into all of these puppets.

Ms Bachmann, who can't spell her name correctly, has the credentials Dr. Paul hasn 't.  She's worked on the right farm when she was 18.

"Following a factory tour in North Carolina." 

All it needs is a "Mission Accomplished" banner and it's the perfect photo op.

More trade deals?  It's an act of drilling more holes in the bottom of the Titannic.  Obama touring a factory in North Caolina?  They must have had it brought in specially from China.  This days list of DC comedy acts is astounding.

Just in the news because the Dutch government is sleeping when things develop and wake when it is to late;

Jan Kaas the Jager (translated JK the Chaser); must bailout greece because if we don't it will cost us (the netherlands) 10's of billions.

months ago he stated the Netherlands was making money on the lendings that were sure. So when the lendings are not sure why put in some more.


Please give him a 5000€ bonus for the the "good" work till now and give him also a holliday in Greece for the next months so he can see the unfolding consequence of his policy that is in line with the rest of the Euro-believers

Mask included or he will be gutted within the hour

Evil incarnate. Why can't the earth open up and swallow Amerikkka and let us all live in peace. Why the fuck not???

Trade Subcommittee Chair Brady speaks on trade deals. Trade agreements with Colombia, Panama, and South Korea have lost a little momentum due to the ongoing disagreement over extending the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program as a quid pro quo.  That said, most observers still expect the deals to be agreed to this year, albeit not by July as originally hoped. 

An Amerikkkan GMO lemon, subsidized by zionista funny money, costs less than a small farmer in Colombia can produce it for. Now with this "FTA" Cargill, ADM, Monsanto, Syngenta, Dreyfuss (the grain horsemen of the GMO apocalypse) will be able to dump all their subsidized, carcinogenic crap in Colombia. The same thing happened with NAFTA and Mexico. The peasants were unable to compete with the imports and ended in the KKK gulags in Amerikkka.

Scum o' the earth this country is.

They had a segment on CNBS about this factory tour.  Immelt and the CEO of American Express apparently wrote an op-ed in the WSJ today giving the 5 things "we" need to do to get "our" economy back on track. 

One was "put construction workers back to work."  I shit you not.  Another was "cut red tape."  So, ummm let's cut red tape by having Obama take up time, energy, and money touring a fucking plant and harping on about how "the recovery will take time."  Got it. 

A third point was that we need to "facilitate lending to small business."  After all, without unlimited access to credit, we all know every business would quickly go under, causing unemployment to rocket up to 25%+.  Have we already forgotten the painful lessons of 2008?  More credit=more jobs.  God bless the USA!
