Yes, we all know that media love whipping up a frenzy as much as possible, from weathermen standing in the windiest part of a hurricane for effect to adding descriptive verbiage to exaggerate a point.

Annee, you say you are a fiscal conservative and social liberal. So that explains your position on gay marriage, however it does not explain how you completely overlook Bachmann's message on the economy.


Asked about her record on jobs, Bachamnn said, "Well, I am a job creator. I am a former tax attorney and I have a post-doctorate degree in tax, years in federal tax court."


"Because I understand how high taxes destroy jobs, and then my husband and I also started our own successful company. We have created jobs and we -- as a job creator myself, I understand how difficult it is to actually make a profit in a business."


Bachmann also called for tax reform and the repeal of the federal health care law and vowed to get America's Triple-A credit rating back. Bachmann opposes again increasing the debt limit and says America should prioritizing paying its creditors as well as paying members of the military and entitlement obligations when the limit is reached.


www.cbsnews.com...


So, Annee, if you were truly a fiscal conservative you would be on board with that. I do not hear you saying these things. In fact, you were defending the Unions when I first joined ATS.
I have yet to see anything conservative in your posting. I'd sure love to see it. I don't expect you to agree with Bachmann's social ideals, but where's the beef in economics? Do you support the economic ideas of any conservative runninng for POTUS?

Running away is worse, especially when you've demonized that person.



Yah and the Left doesn't continually demonize Glenn Beck, Rush, and the Tea Party. Really, I wish the Left would take the mote out of it's eye.

Hey you know what's really interesting about this OP? There's all this discussion about Michelle Bachmann, but absolutely none about Tim Pawlenty, whom was also approached by the exact same teen, only in a different manner.
This article states that the teen spoke to Pawlenty.
www.christianpost.com...


Gabe Aderhold, 17, first approached Pawlenty at The Des Moines Register's soapbox, saying, "You are discriminating against me and it hurts."


You have not stood for us and that is really hard for me," Aderhold said, while noting that Pawlenty supports the National Organization for Marriage and the definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman.




Aderhold later challenged Bachmann (R-Minn.) at the same venue later in the day. As she was signing autographs with her husband by her side, the openly gay teen spoke up from the crowd and questioned her husband Marcus' counseling center for practicing reparative therapy.
He then began to chant, "Shame on you," only to be drowned out by Bachmann's supporters who shouted, "Bachmann."
The teen did not engage in a debate with Bachmann, who soon left the stage.


Interesting that the OPS article did not report the exchange between the teen and Pawlenty. Perhaps the teen had a crush on Pawlenty. He clearly treated Pawlenty with more respect than he did Michelle. Perhaps he has more respect for men than women.

Good call. You can not win in a yelling match with a gay person. Run the other way. These people are very good at yelling and causing a scene.


hahahaha you sir should be knighted for speaking the truth,i have nothing against gay people but SIR is right on the money!! bing bing!!

Hey there! Go easy on sharing the truth around here. We certainly don't want to disrupt anyone's plan. Clearly the video of the Bachmann incident wasn't enough for some people to realize that this story is bogus.

Shhh!!!

Um...uh...huh?
How is that really interesting? There is no discussion of Pawlenty, Nibiru, Reptillians, or Vampires. Know why? Because this thread is not about any of those things. It is not even about all the people some gay kid talked to. It is specifically about Michelle Bachmann. Why are some people so desperate to deflect from the topic when it is Bachmann or Palin? If she needs to be defended, defend her. If it needs to be ignored, ignore it. If you want to talk about Tim Pawlenty, you attempt to just change the topic for no reason becomes QUITE apparent.

My clear understanding of the meaning of the word. Simple as that. You cannot call yourself a strong leader all while praising someone else for always directing you.


There is no evidence to suggest subservience to anyone outside of her personal relationship to her husband. Do you want to suggest that he is actually the one calling the shots politically for her?? If so, then we can go back to the Hillary and Bill discussion
She is doing what she was elected to do in her current role.

We all take on new roles at different stages of our lives. Some by choice some by chance. Hopefully, we learn something with the passing of each stage and take that on to the next. Just as Bachmann did with her experience as a tax attorney. You may enjoy this article written by a former "tax taker" who learned a little while working for the IRS. www.americanthinker.com... Or you may not.

It's a relevant side story that reflects a clear agenda of a troubled teen looking for someone to listen him. Perhaps his parents don't listen to him at home. Poor little fella. Perhaps his mission would be better served if he made strides to attend an open forum town hall event with one of these candidates. Then he can step up to the microphone, ask intelligent questions and possibly even engage in a mature conversation on the topic. Instead he chose to hang out at the "soapbox' stage and hoped to get a reaction by screaming a bunch of gibberish at the top of his lungs. End result... this kid sounds like just another angry nutjob shouting from the crowd.

ETA
Let's change this thread title to "Hysterical Teen Confronts Michele Bachmann"
Again just a little more honest truth.

Oh right, this thread wasn't about a teen who wanted politicians to recognize him, only the crazy Huffpo nuts who follow their left wing socialist agenda freaking out over Michelle Bachmann's stance on family. This thread isn't how some left wingers treat men differently than women. It's only about the hated conservative women.
Never mind the truth about the issue, the leftwing media left out half the story. Perhaps some people prefer to ignore the truth for a reason.


How did I change the topic? This teen approached both candidates at the same fair on the same issue. You just cannot deal with the truth being told. We all know that Huffpo and other left wing media outlets print stuff that skews everything to the left anyway.

He doesn't necessarily even have to be gay, he could just be an activist who thinks he's doing the right thing. There are plenty of people like that around, even around here. I mean, you know Margaret Sanger founded the American Birth Control League(now Planned Parenthood) out of her desire to help poor black women get rid of their birthing capabilities.
Planned Parenthood now engages in just helping them get rid of their babies.

lol


Wouldn't you be if one started raising their voice hysterically and embarressing you in front of a crowd?
This guy sounds like he has issues and I'm not talking about him being a queer/gay dude either.

Seriously? Embarrassing Michelle Bachmann is your argument?

A young gay teen having issues with anti-gay politicians?

Yeah - that's shocking.

I'm a fiscal conservative/libertarian. So as far as I'm concerned you can lick or stroke whatever you like to your heart's content: I don't care.

Having said that, even if Bachmann has an issue with gay people, what could she possibly do as president that would negatively impact gays? seriously?

Answer: nothing.

It's really a non-issue.

and for the record: Obama opposed gay marriage (or he said he did) during his campaign. But every word out his mouth is a lie so, whatever.

Lol did anyone else see Michelle Bachman wish Elvis Presley Happy Birthday on the anniversary of his death? What a scatterbrain.

This was done on August 16th, His birthday is January 8th.

"Chrstianity" as you spelled it is not seen as backwards in the modern world. It's seen as backward by people I don't like and some atheists. Religion is religion. I love how you grouped Christianity all alone yet you know Muslims and Jews are okay. Your type bugs me. I recently made a post about it.

Thanks for your opinion though.

I can follow some of your logic in the above stated post. You feel that people are mocking your religion and not any of the other countless belief structures out there. Very well. Fair enough. I am no Christian. Far from it in fact. I do however have a Masters degree in theology, so I would like to think that I can speak with at least a bit of knowledge. The nation you live in was founded on the ideal of a separation of Church and State. I think that this is a brilliant idea. After all, as a Christian, would you want the ideals of a different religion to be forced down your throat? Very likely not. As a non-Christian, I certainly don't want biblical ideals shoved down mine. Government, especially democratic government, is meant to encompass peoples of ALL beliefs, races, and any other difference, including sexual preference.

Now, to clarify my position slightly, I'm a straight man. In my world view however, that does not mean I have to hate homosexuals. That would be silly. They aren't contagious, they aren't trying to recruit, who they decide they are attracted to is none of my damned business, as the details of my bedroom escapades are none of theirs. Ultimately, they are no different from any bloody other person. A dear friend from high school came out to a bunch of my crowd a while back, I believe that the general consensus was "Who bloody cares?". I might humbly suggest you take that approach my friend. I'm certain that a shadowy cabal of gay men aren't plotting to convert you to their sinful gay ways.

To bring this full circle, you seemed affronted when it looked like someone had singled out and denigrated your religion, to the exclusion of all the MANY others. I simply can't fathom how you can be upset at feeling targeted and mocked based on a belief structure, when you can then turn around and denigrate another group of people based on something much more primal... who they love. That kind of hypocrisy is a hallmark of MANY religions, so fear not, it isn't just yours.

As an aside, Leviticus 11:12 states that "Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you." Shall I assume you are currently boycotting Red Lobster? After all, if you are going to follow the book of your lord, you should probably follow ALL of it, not just the bits you happen to like.

That was just my two cents, now let the Holy Flaming War begin!

Depends what you mean by this. A lot of the religions have the same "ideals". i.e treat other people well.




Very likely not. As a non-Christian, I certainly don't want biblical ideals shoved down mine. Government, especially democratic government, is meant to encompass peoples of ALL beliefs, races, and any other difference, including sexual preference.


Fair enough. I'm not debating this though. My Opinion is that Governments should leave it well alone. Religion is a personal thing and has no place in Government. Trying to say being gay is morally wrong based on Religion is wrong. It's legalizing Ethics. Law and Ethics are similar but NOT the same.




Now, to clarify my position slightly, I'm a straight man. In my world view however, that does not mean I have to hate homosexuals. That would be silly. They aren't contagious, they aren't trying to recruit, who they decide they are attracted to is none of my damned business, as the details of my bedroom escapades are none of theirs.

Well she cared. The reason why "Coming out" is a big deal is because we demonize them for their choice and they're scarred to admit it. It's stupid. No they aren't any different. Some of the coolest people I know are gay. They're just people too. Also I don't think this way, Im a liberal Christian. I mean if God makes it a sin to accept gay people so be it, but I'm not going to be rude to them. It's just how I am.

That kind of hypocrisy is a hallmark of MANY religions, so fear not, it isn't just yours.


I am affronted when people single my religion out and rage about it. My belief is that religion is personal. Not to mention they focus on being mad at Christians. Maybe it's because we're loudest but still it gets annoying. Also once again I don't turn around and be rude to gay people based on who they love. I don't even be rude to them at all. That hypocrisy is a hallmark of not me...




As an aside, Leviticus 11:12 states that "Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you." Shall I assume you are currently boycotting Red Lobster? After all, if you are going to follow the book of your lord, you should probably follow ALL of it, not just the bits you happen to like.


Well I'm not sure what that means good sir. I'm not an expert on Biblical terminology however Leviticus is part of the old testimate, things change. Not to mention we're all sinners. So I can't explain that however you say I should follow all of it and not just bits of it. I hate this argument because nobody follows all of it. That's why we have priests and confession (Catholic).




That was just my two cents, now let the Holy Flaming War begin!


No flame war. However I will look forward to your response.
