Bachmann: God demands attention to tea party message

Michele Bachmann, campaigning in Sarasota, Fla. over the weekend:

“I don’t know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We’ve had an earthquake; we’ve had a hurricane. He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?’ Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we’ve got to rein in the spending.”

Campaigning at a Shriner’s Temple that is, but I guess telling the full story wouldn’t make her sound as crazy. A pandering politician is hardly a story.

RW, “pandering”? c’mon, I don’t care if she was campaigning at a Flat Earth Society convention. you know what I find most interesting about these snake jugglers? they are all quick to tell you that their god is all powerful, ominipotent, etc; and that the human mind cannot possibly understand god’s wisdom; and yet, they never pass up a chance to “speak for god” when it serves a political purpose. I mean, let’s be honest (and christian). it’s been almost two decades since I juggled a snake, but I seem to recall that after the Noah’s Ark thing; god assured us that he would not use a flood to get our attention. ergo, I’ll conced the earthquake could have been a warning (although my god is Mother Nature, with caps), but seems to me Bachman’s god took the hurricane bullet out of the gun two thousand or so years ago. again, seems to me, when some “tin foil hat” loonlike Bachman professes to speak for god or “know” why god does what he does, it is more blasphemy than faith.

The problem is, by extension she’s saying, “God only helps those who help themselves,” which makes it convenient to not do anything, a la Herbert Hoover.

I’ve been of the opinion that every time somebody harps on the “shovel ready jobs” meme and/or other rhetoric, Mother Nature provides another opportunity for those jobs. There’s another wave coming off the coast of Africa, so Eric Cantor will get his chance to offset some additional cuts. At some point, people will begin to hold ALL elected officials responsible for the crap that comes out their mouths.

As an aside, I got to meet members of the band Disturbed this morning. :)

does anyone remember the story (don’t know if it is true) about how Columbus or one of the other explorers pulled a fast one on the locals by telling them he had the power to make the moon disappear? European scientists were ahead of the “dirt worshippers” when it came to astronomy and mapping the solar system (which ironically got some excommunicated, but I digress). so, in order to attain political leverage (control) Columbus presented himself as a de facto demigod. same with Bachman, Robertson, Huckabee, the late Falwell; et al. I don’t believe a lick of the Bible, but I do believe the verse about being leery of “wolves in sheeps’ clothing” is something good Christian folk need to consider, along with all the other fabrications, re-writes, translations and appropriations of ‘the word of god’. what is it you kids say these days/ …just sayin…

Funny you should say that about the Shriners. The original name of the Shriner’s Organization is the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine of North America. Many would conviently misappropriate the Arabic in that name to imply Islam. I wonder how many of the anti-Muslims in this country would crap a brick if they knew the Shriner’s used a copy of the Koran in their meetings?

Illustrious Potentate: Noble Oriental Guide, you will now display the Holy writings and other appropriate emblems.

Oriental Guide opens the Bible (1st chapter of Job: Koran 38th chapter) arranges them on the altar, Koran in front of the Bible, Bible and Koran in arch of two crossed scimitars on the Altar.

Michelle Bachmann is now saying what she thinks the majority of Republican voters want to hear. This indicates she thinks these voters are people who interpret earthquakes, hurricanes, etc. as signs from God. If this is true it would mean that these voters could be characterized as being, among other things, profoundly ignorant about science and natural causes. It looks like America is dumbing down even faster than I thought. Forewarned is forearmed.

Ya know, a marxist, spread the wealth, crazy spending lib. Of course the wacko left will continue to blame bush for all the damage he’s done. You can thank our gov’t, or more accurately, fannie and freddie for the housing financial mess. And who ran F&F? Barney and Dodd. To staunch libs in support of everyone getting a home.

As for Eric Cantor’s “cut to spend on disaster relief,” I say we give him his wish. For every dollar we spend in his district on disaster relief, we take a dollar from something else being distributed to his district. If that takes withholding social security checks and medicare payments for people ONLY in his district, then so be it. They can start getting regular payments when they pay the government back for the assistance they received in that district.

I know why Cantor doesn’t (he’s a Jew, and you know how those people are when it comes to spending money…). I also remember a Bible verse about “rendering unto Caesar what is Caesar’s…”

I wonder if this partially explains why Perry’s poll numbers are so high?

Question is, when people start hearing more about Perry, will Bachmann’s numbers go up?

“He said, ‘Are you going to start listening to me here?’

Whatever happened to the still, small voice?

Had an interesting experience yesterday (kinda fits in with the topic). My wife received an email from a friend of her’s who’s a member of the Latter-day Saint church. They were taking part in an interfaith outreach with the local Muslim community with the ending of that day’s Ramadan fast. We went. It is a small community, there were a few guests. They were very open, very gracious. Invited everyone in for prayers, then outside for their break the fast meal (wonderful food). I sat at a table with a petroleum engineer who’d taught at U of Oklahoma, Colorado School of Mines and Technology and a university in Ohio. Another guy was a CPA. Sat next to the imam.

They were open about their faith – I took away a lot of the same concerns as people of faith anywhere have. How to keep kids centered, true to their communities. How do they bring back those who’ve left How to engage those who come to America who want to keep one foot in their faith and another in the secular experience. Their overriding emphasis on giving, not taking and doing works of charity.

I asked if they’d been to other religious groups. Answer was LDS had invited them to several – youth programs, worship services, that sort of stuff. They’d attended. I asked who had responded to their invitations. Imam said the small independent church next door and the LDS. Said no one else had accepted their offers.

End of the day, it was all about understanding and acceptance. Theirs of the nonIslamic community and the nonIslamic community of them. It was a great way to spend a Sunday.

Bachmann may be big on the national stage but here in Georgia, she comes in well behind quite a few others. Unfortunately, that still does not speak well for the GOP’s preferences for president:

– Candidate, Straw Poll votes and percentage

– Herman Cain, 232 or 26 percent;

– Ron Paul, 229 or 25.7 percent;

– Rick Perry, 179 or 20 percent;

Yes. You need to take a closer look. They want to make the country a theocracy. Whether or not they will be successful is indeterminate, but since most of us seem to believe so strongly in what the President wants (unless it’s Obama)….

Trust this: they won’t hesitate to spend on wars and outlawing abortion and running up the deficit even more by removing laws that have been designed to cut costs while remaining responsible. Their goal isn’t to spend less, it’s to TAX less, and that’s only looking at the monetary side.

The political cynic in me says if stories like those interfaith efforts get out, Romney’s and Huntsman’s poll numbers would fall even further among a certain segment….

Adam,

Lest you forget why Fox was created in the first place? A lone voice. One voice against how many?

Fail.

Well, we can certainly tell which side of the intellectual fence you’re on. Here’s a hint – it’s not the educated one.

And now yet again, we have a thread on that evil Republican candidate who believes in God. We must ignore those 44% of Americans who still strongly disapprove of Bozo, those 63% of Democrats who feel that the country is headed in the wrong direction and those 79% of Americans who believe that the country is on the wrong track. Is this all you have Bookman? Some GOP candidate who believes that God had something to do with hurricane Irene? The liberal love fest is at it’s best when God is mentioned. Bookman, you’re like a heart attack victim complaining about a hangnail.

Call it like it is: So you have one politician speaking to less than a 1000 people

Incorrect. She is a candidate for President. When she speaks, she is speaking to EVERYONE, whether she likes it or not.

Adam and others,

Have you ever heard Obama speak to a predominately black audience? And I say “so what” to that just as I say “so what” to this.

Electing politicians who sound good hasn’t served us very well. I’m more interested in their experience and their record. I’ve heard what Obama has to say and I’ve seen what he can do, at least up to this point. That carries a lot more weight than what any politician says or how they say it at a stump speech in front of their base.

I see, Call It.

So when one of the top contenders for the GOP presidential nomination says something about national politics to fewer than 1,000 people, it isn’t supposed to count somehow? That sounds like RW’s suggestion, which is that something said in a Shriner’s Temple isn’t supposed to count.

So what’s the cutoff here? Two thousand people?

stands- The only “first step” we need to take is to vote these anti-social wads of filth out of office, and get off this nihilistic path a cadre of organized criminals have attempted to put us on.

Here, here! Let’s start with the Chicago gangster and all his fat cat Goldman-Sachs buddies.

Which of course means that 44% will not vote for Obama, 63% of Democrats will vote for the Republican candidate, and the Presidential election will be an overall landslide of 79% vote for the Republican candidate….. right?

You didn’t object to her words being publicized, Jed?

Then what were you trying to say here:

“And you pay attention to her, why?”

+++++++++++++++++++++

I already explained my response. You can choose to not accept it if you prefer.

Gordon: I’m more interested in their experience and their record.

Then please, enlighten us to how Bachmann will be better than Obama. You know, based on her record.
