Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann reintroduced legislation in the U.S House Tuesday to repeal the 2007 law mandating incandescent light bulbs be phased out in favor of compact fluorescent light bulbs by Jan. 1, 2012.
Her resolution, Light Bulb Freedom of Choice Act - Please Watch Her IN ACTION. Remember that there is a constitution that talks about Equal Rights, and apparently she's unaware of it. isn't it almost a requirement to be in elected office, that you are aware that your job depends on the constitution ? especially if you are in the Legislative Branch of the government ?
This Cannot Be Americas' Future Unless we want to revisit our conflicted past.
Some times we need a lil reminder of why people act the way they do. the Somali's have endured generations of colonialism; conflict, and war. Watch This and think Black Hawk Down. Then look at the news, because it's all there. from the shooting in Arizona to the Protests going on around the country about anchor babies.
Now it probably makes more sense to you.
if you were in a situation where there was no way to deal with it for generations, eventually you'd get fed up and decide it was time to respond. this is pretty much whats' happening in the middle east. if the situation develops to the point that it has in Somalia, i'd say Black Hawks will be down all over the place very soon.
America, Pay close attention because you're situation is becomming quite tense. Michelle Bachmann has made a bunch of crazy statements and she's running for president in the 2012 elections. do you think that that makes any sense ?
well take a look at her history and then you can see why the desperation of americans may seen reach the fever pitch we're seeing around the world.
this is from a great tumblr blog run by a very politically saavy woman called pantslessprogressive. enjoy

Quotes:‘I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970’s that the swine flu broke out then under another Democratic president Jimmy Carter. And I’m not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it’s an interesting coincidence.’ [source]‘Normalization [of homosexality] through desensitization. Very effective way to do this with a bunch of second graders, is take a picture of “Lion King” for instance, and a teacher might say, “Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay man?” The message is: I’m better at what I do, because I’m gay.’ [source]‘We will not stop until we repeal a President and put a president in the position of the White House who will repeal [Obamacare].’ [source]‘I’ll tell you one thing, if I was ever to run for president of the United States, I think the first thing I would do in the first debate is offer my birth certificate so we can get that off the table.’ [source]On her children:
