Michele Bachmann Publicly Urges Government to Ignore the Fourteenth Amendment

1616736_10152211461247489_1060338680_nI’m not going to beat around the bush here.  When it comes to the Republican party and our Constitution, they treat it the very same way they do the Bible.  They like to cherry-pick the parts they like and ignore the parts that they don’t.

If our Constitution gives rights to people they don’t feel should have those rights (like with abortion), well – then they have absolutely no problem passing laws which are in direct violation of a constitutionally upheld right.

Same goes for a number of other issues such as same-sex marriage and freedom of (or from) religion in general.

And one of the biggest Republican hypocrites when it comes to our Constitution is Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann.  I always laugh when she tries to act like she’s some kind of “Constitutional scholar” when I would literally be shocked if she’s even read our Bill of Rights.

Well, recently during a radio interview speaking on the topic of immigration reform, she advocated that our government should ignore our Fourteenth Amendment which defines what it is to be an American:

Bachmann said:

“One thing I’ve advocated a long time is to get rid of this mindless idea that if someone has a baby in the U.S. and the parents are illegal aliens, the baby should be given automatic status as an American citizen. Mexico doesn’t do that and Honduras doesn’t do that. We should only give citizenship status to a baby born to legal American citizens.”

For the record, yes, she did just compare the United States of America to Mexico and Honduras.

Let’s take a quick look at Section I of our Fourteenth Amendment:

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

So basically Ms. Bachmann is essentially saying we should just scrap that whole Fourteenth Amendment.  You just have to love that good ol’ “Republican party for Constitutional values,” don’t ya?

This idiocy came on top of her claims that if all the “illegals” President Obama was trying to “amnesty” were conservatives, he wouldn’t be pushing for immigration reform:

“Let’s face it, if these were conservative Republicans coming here illegally, the last thing Obama would do is seek to give amnesty and citizenship and legal voting status to the people coming into the country.”

And let’s face it, if the Republican “base” didn’t consist of a lot of racist voters and the “Republicans coming here illegally” weren’t Mexican – the GOP would be overwhelmingly in support of any kind of amnesty they could get their hands on.

Then we can’t forget the fact that “conservative icon” Ronald Reagan amnestied millions of illegal immigrants in 1986.

The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986:

  • legalized certain seasonal agricultural illegal immigrants
  • legalized illegal immigrants who entered the United States before January 1, 1982 and had resided there continuously with the penalty of a fine, back taxes due, and admission of guilt; candidates were required to prove that they were not guilty of crimes, that they were in the country before January 1, 1982, and that they possessed minimal knowledge about U.S. history, government, and the English language.

This act gave legal status to around 3 million immigrants.

You know – amnesty. 

Bachmann also continued:

“From a political perspective, it’s a political suicide mission to be on the side of amnesty.”

For many Republicans, I’m sure it is political suicide.  Racist conservative voters strongly oppose immigration reform and I’m sure many congressional Republicans supporting any such move would face severe backlash from their racist constituents.  You know, most of the tea party conservatives.

Still, it’s a bit ironic for a woman who often cites the “greatness” of Ronald Reagan to call it “political suicide” to support immigration reform, considering Reagan amnestied 3 million illegal immigrants in 1986.

But this is just another great example of a “Constitutional Republican” supporting the trashing of our Constitution because it happens to support something that conservatives disagree with.

    Marco Rubio was born in 1971. His parents were illegal immigrants(undocumented) and didn’t receive naturalization until 1975. Should his citizenship be revoked since he was born from undocumented Cuban immigrants, or is he a “horse of a different color”?

    • Unreal Uknow

      Actually he should be invalidated from running for President. What you described is how you get subversive elements into that position. It isn’t worth the risk. What if his parents were Russians and not cubans. During the time he was born Cuba was a Soviet puppet.

      • Stephen Barlow

        What if his parents were Bobby jindal’s or SlutnikkiHaley’s parents?

      • Unreal Uknow

        If their parents were not natural citizens then no. We should invalidate anyone from holding the office of President within one generation of immigrants. So children born of immigrant parents, whether natural or not, should be barred from the highest office for one generation as a national security matter.

      • tonyr62

        How in the context of the Constitution could you do that?

      • Unreal Uknow

        By a more strict interpretation by the court of what a natural born citizen is. Remember the courts, particularly the SCOTUS have been corrupted by the political parties for the last 100 years or so.

        Did you know that until the 20s the SCOTUS utilized the Federalist papers over 200 times to interpret constitutional meaning of vague statements. Much of the Constitution is unfortunately vague, so the court utilized the words of the drafters to make that determination. Then that practice stopped completely. Ironically it was around the same time as the passage of the 17th amendment and the creation of the Fed. The two biggest acts of corruption in our nations history.

      • ozdawg

        You know that our first few Presidents were either born elsewhere or were 2nd generation Americans right?

      • Marc Ruben Bolado

        Actually, research your history. George Wasington – Virginia, John Adams – Massachusetts, Thomas Jefferson – Virginia, James Madison – Virginia, James Monroe – Virginia, John Quincy Adams – Massachusetts, Andrew Jackson – Carolinas, Martin Van Buren – New York. Every single President in the history of the United States has been born on this land mass. Now it wasn’t “the United States” when these gentlemen were born, but they were born HERE nonetheless.

    • ramhid

      I am not a Republican but for the sake of the truth, let me get the facts straight to you. His parents were legal Cuban immigrants at time they arrived in the United States in 1956 and it’s a fact that they became naturalized U.S. citizens in 1975.

      It’s also a fact that Rubio’s maternal grandfather, Pedro Victor Garcia, also immigrated legally to the U.S. in 1956, but returned to Cuba to find work in 1959. When he returned to the U.S. in 1962, he did it without a visa. At that time, the U.S. embassies in Cuba were closed. When he entered the US, an immigration judge ordered him deported but due to the circunstancies at the time, U.S. immigration authorities ultimately used their discretion to allow him to remain in the U.S. without a visa.

      So to say that Marco Rubio was born of illegal parents is totally wrong.

      • Betty Eyer

        True, but according to what Bachman is saying, he still should not be a citizen because he was not born of American citizens.

      • Veritas vos Liberabit

        Focus on the second paragraph of ramhid’s comment. It perfectly describes AMNESTY. Something Michele Bachmann is also against. So my question : “Is Marco Rubio a horse of a different color”? has been answered.Furthermore, Conservatives/Republicans, by definition, are against immigration, period. Anyone remember the “self deportation” statement made by Mitt Romney as a solution to illegal immigration?. Basically what that statement is telling us is: If we close the avenues for these immigrants to become American citizens in the future, they have no choice but to voluntarily return to their Country of origin.

      • ramhid

        One has to just historic events for the conditions that prevailed at the time of their development. Remember that back then, the US just faced the missiles crisis with Cuba. Turning away people that were running away from communist regimes was not a good idea during those days. It was quite different to the “amnesty” that the we’re talking about today.

        On the issue of illegal immigrants, in the 1980’s, amnesty were given to 10 millions undocumented citizens. A precedent was set up. Three decades later, we are facing almost 11 millions more of undocumented citizens and it will happens again in the future if the government goes through the amnesty program again.

        To me, the question is: How the US economic benefits from given amnesty to more undocumented citizens? No one can’t say how it benefited from the first amnesty program, other than having more people living in the country legally. I don’t know or heard of any statistics that show its results. That should be a data to evaluate and validate the benefits of given amnesty to undocumented citizens.

      • Stephen Barlow

        But Carter welcoming criminals from prison and all the mental patients from Cuba because Castro was too bad a manager to pay for their care was a VERY STUPID decision. Don’t believe Me, watch miami Vice or Scarface for a VERY REAL reality check.

        That said… I welcome all immigrants, if they have honest, reliable histories and zero threat purposes for immigration.

        I am against ANY travel visa for any person with a tie to a terror supporting nation.PERIOD. I think they ALL should have been deported, student visa or not. Every last frigging one of them, on a trash barge and out to the 200 mile limit and set adrift.

        what’s that thing about the butterfly… if you love it, set it free, if it returns… let’s see iftheir ‘Bombermomma’s’ wan them back.

        Trusting friends of our enemies has cost 12,000 dead and 40,000 wounded in the most expensive war of the modern era.

      • ramhid

        In reference to Carter accepting the “Marielita’s boat people” as they were known, I’d agree that it was a stupid idea. The US failed to see that Castro was dumping on us the people that were imposing a burden on his regime’s economy and that the commies were very happy to get rid off. No doubt that Castro out smarted our government then, with the help of the Cuban community in Florida, as he had done in the past lying about his true Marxist-Leninist mentality.

        I can also see that you live in a fantasy world when you write: “welcome all immigrants, if they have honest, reliable histories and zero threat purposes for immigration.” I say this because there isn’t anyway to verify any of these things and only their acts and time will tell how good of a citizen an immigrant is.

        You are right when you say that Rubio is an “anchor baby” by definition of the term and that would applies to any immigrant by default. However, his parents were legal residents living in the US when he was born and by law, he‘s an American citizen. But as I’ve said before, he does not qualify to run for any position that’s inline with the Presidency of the US because both of his parents are Cuban born. Teo Cruz, however, is qualified because of one parent being US citizen by birth. Just like the Obama’s case. Do I want him to be POTUS? Hell NO!

      • Stephen Barlow

        If these people CAN’T or won’t verify themselves, then they can’t get a seat @ the table. just like in a night club, you may have nice tits babe, and I know that BJ you are offering would be grande, but NO ID, NO ENTRANCE. you must be THIS tall to ride this ride.

        American citizenship is not Halloween candy. We have handed it out, along with student and travel visas for far too long. TY RED PARTY for defunding government services employees down to 6% of the entire Federal budget. 94% of the civilian government workforce is the DOD, DHS or VA.

        If THOSE guys were watching our borders INSTEAD of spying on EVERY American who ever spoke or typed the word “and” in public…. But they are not. If we employed ENOUGH people to hunt down those who are late renewing their terrorist visa… unemployment would make the President look good.

        if we had employed inspectors at our ports, the Chinese wouldn’t have ben able to poison our pets and our children… pirate our fine American made goods or traffic slaves onto our shores with impunity.

      • ramhid

        I don’t agree with that. He’s still a citizen but can’t run for the Presidency of the US or any position that would allow him to ocupy it by default because one of the parents was not born in US territory. That’s my interpretation of the Constitucion.

      • Betty Eyer

        Well, the SCOTUS does not agree with you. So good luck with that.

      • Stephen Barlow

        ONE American parent is what makes Ted CRuz a citizen. Same as the N-guy he hates. Rubio is DEVOID of American parents and is a non contender by birth.

        But the LAW says different. he’s an “Anchor baby” by definition and I would slam THAT across 200,000 billboards all over the South and the RED States.

        “Anchor Baby Republican in the White House???”

        ..and a half mile down the highway…

        “Wouldn’t you really rather have a Half Negro from Hawaii?”

        Kinda like the old Burma Shave ads..

      • Stephen Barlow

        Amen to getting that wet whatever out of the Senate.

      • For sake of facts: Rubio’s father was Cuban. His mother was an American citizen. And he was born in Canada. His father became a US citizen in 2005. Rubio was an American (and Canadian) by birth.

      • ramhid

        You are confusing Senator Rubio with Teo Cruz, the one from Texas. From the same kind of tree but grown in different ground. The latest one is worst thing that could have ever happened to Texas.

      • My bad, I apologize.

      • MLR

        Uh no, those are not facts at all. You are getting Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz confused.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Hey JACK ASSS! That’s TED Cruz, the Shutdown Denier.

      • Stephen Barlow

        An ILL egal criminal by Republican standards and Rubio’s parents should not only self deport.. but should be banned for a decade.

        ” When he returned to the U.S. in 1962, he did it without a visa” A criminal is a criminal is a criminal, unless they are 1%ers or GOPers…

    • Stephen Barlow

      YES YES YES!!!

    “…when I would *literally* be shocked if she’s even read our Bill of Rights.”

    Come on, Allen. You’re smarter than this. Don’t use the word ‘literally’ when you mean ‘really’, ‘very’, ‘incredibly’, or some other intensifier to describe how shocked you are unless you actually were shocked by static electricity, tazed, etc. while you were reading about Michele Bachmann’s familiarity with the Bill of Rights.

    • ctchrisf

      shocked doesn’t just mean with electricity.

      l

      shock1
      SHäk/
      verb
      past tense: shocked; past participle: shocked
      1.
      cause (someone) to feel surprised and upset.
      “she was shocked at the state of his injuries”

      • King Brooks

        The issue was with the word “literally”, not shocked. People use the word “literally” with carefree and hyperbolic disregard. Injecting nonsensical exaggerated words into a serious conversation weakens your position & “literally” makes you look foolish.

      • Sunny Ray

        Well, if it’s one word that shock you in this article, you literally missed the point, which is way more important than a word misuse…. just saying.

      • King Brooks

        Oh, I get the article, completely understand it, and happen to agree with the content. Hypocrisy is abundant in society, as well as sarcasm, and hyperbole. Ctchrisf, was attempting to be a wise-ass & failed to display wit. M. Siever was also being a wise-ass, he just happened to be correct; the word literally was misused.
        I truly do appreciate your concern for my comprehension & ability to extrapolate the purpose or main idea of an article. Rest assured, I’m sufficiently adequate in all areas of reading.
        Cheers!

      • ctchrisf

        it was not misused, are you saying he wasn’t surprised. or could not of been.

        I was commenting that Shock has more then one meaning. Not just the usage of the person I was replying to.

        “or some other intensifier to describe how shocked you are unless you actually were shocked by static electricity, tazed, etc. while you were reading about Michele Bachmann’s familiarity with the Bill of Rights.”

        Maybe he would actually be surprised if Michelle Bachmann has read the bill of rights,

        I’m surprised she knows how to get out of bed every morning.

  • John Cary

    Get real. Any died in the wool tea party conservative knows that the only important amendment in the Bill of Rights is the second one, just as any Bible believing Christian knows that the only important commandment is Thou shalt not be gay. 😛

    • I call BS on the latter. I’m a BuyBull Thumper. I have no issue with what people do in a bedroom together. As a matter of fact, I don’t want to even care. It’s 0% of my business.

      • Stephen Barlow

        Good for you, but do you CONDEMN those in your church for DENYING Christ’s commands?

        then you are no different than the lepers you sleep and sup with.

      • No. I avoid church because I don’t like the people there.

        I turn the pages of my Bible with my own fingers, I read the pages with my own eyes, I assess what I read with my own brain.

        My response was to the somewhat trite claim of “Thou shalt not be gay.” I don’t trust anyone who claims to understand the Bible or claims to know the mind of God.

      • Stephen Barlow

        I am glad you survived your indoctrination. i take the Bible as a historical novel, and see much wisdom in it. But no more so than in reading Emerson or Thoreau. the problem with organized religion is that My ‘god’ is too big to cram in their church.

        What I meant was that those who KNOW Christ within and DO NOT follow that Christ, are no different than those noisy gongs and clanging cymbals who pray in public for all to see, yet have not God in their hearts. (or some paraphrase of that). I may offend many, but it’s how I keep the commandments AND pluck out what offendeth Me.

        Keep the faith. ~S~

      • I agree. Many whom ‘hate’ Christians do not realize some Christians do not care to hammer others with a Bible, but to act as they should. I remain the latter. There are those in every ‘club’ whom will “go off the deep end.” Those whom do not, reap the wrath of those whom can’t understand that.

        My Christianity is my own business and I generally do not bring it to the web. As we know, he told us “They will know you by your works.” I’ll be fine with that, although, there is no chance that I will never NOT appear to do as I should. No one will ever appear to be so, either side of the fence, or even atop of it.

      • Stephen Barlow

        But in THIS case, going of the deep end MAKES YOU A club member. You are a ‘blasphemer’ if you don’t.

      • Yes, I believe so. To someone somewhere, I am very evil. That’s really funny when I think seriously about it.

        Refugees, you stupid pig, are not strictly a “class of immigrants” you moron, but come seeking political asylum as member of a cognizable social group. Like the Latino Children that are being warehoused along the southern border right now, I’m sure you would be happy to extend asylum to them as they are running for their lives from a dangerous situation south of the U.S. border…Pig.

    The only thing I think we should get rid of is all of the migrant workers. There are plenty of Americans who are unemployed and would be happy to have work. Also there are many factories that hire migrant workers by the bus load and then hire in the next load once the previous load moves on. One such factory is Penguin Plastics in Sturgis, Michigan.

    • JamieHaman

      Really, I can’t think of anyone who is willing to work in fields picking tomatoes, or strawberries. Or anything that grows in orchards. Come to think of it, highways are another thing I don’t see people breaking down doors to work on. Unless it is the heavy equipment drivers. How about lawn care, live in Texas, haven’t seen white guys or gals for almost 20 years mowing and raking any lawn but their own. Nope, this is why we need the migrant workers, and the illegal immigrants.

      • paul123454321

        The reason you see so many illegal immigrants in those jobs is the wages have fallen so much. In Alabama, after they passed their law against illegal immigrants, one of the farmers complained he could no longer find workers. He went on to say that he pays “good” stating he pays piece work, and if a worker works a hard 12 hour day, is a good worker, and takes no breaks they could make as much as 60 bucks a day. That’s way less than minimum wage and way less than you need to live on.
        Same thing with with construction, I know a number of guys that used to be roofers,, but the wages have dropped so much as they try to bid against companies that are using illegal aliens they can no longer afford to work those jobs.

      • disqus_mmZU8TPsvi

        America has always liked their slave labor, whether here or overseas. Making them legal would stop that practice of under paying. As long as we let people hire illegals w/o much of a penalty, the practice will continue. But no one wants to stop the businesses from hiring or make the businesses pay a large penalty. Business pays lawmakers lots of money to make sure that they won’t be penalized for hiring illegals.

        This is why you go after the bosses, the ones that create the demand by hiring underground.

      • JamieHaman

        Don’t know about Alabama, but what happened in Texas is that the Republicans passed the “Right to Work” laws, effectively meaning “right to work for less.” A lot less. Union carpenters (hands, not supervisors) went from $15.00 to $10. and it has only gotten worse, because everything costs a lot more than it did when the unions were broken.

      • Some Middle Ground

        only because they would rather sit on welfare and collect the equivalent of $11 without working. I wouldn’t mind working in the fields myself as I live on a farm as it is. Everyone is complaining about how there aren’t enough jobs when the only reason there aren’t enough jobs is because migrant workers, here on work VISAs are taking half of them. Even if the pay is crappy at least it is better than nothing.

      • JamieHaman

        You get no argument from me about crappy pay being better than nothing. Sadly, when minimum wage stagnates, which it has, then it does make more sense to collect that to work. Here is the catch, in Texas I am told a recipient must show at least an effort to find a job to keep those benefits.
        Tell me this if you would, don’t know where you farm, but is it true that there are usually no facilities or restrooms available to workers in the fields? I have read it before, but don’t farm, and don’t know.

    • charleo1

      If you will excuse me for pointing out, your position that we should,
      “get rid of..,all of the migrant workers,” is not generally considered
      some middle ground. In fact, that position on immigration is located
      on the far Right fringe. As you failed to make any distinction between migrants with documentation, and those without. But moreover, it continues to be a point of contention with me, since the appearance of the ultra Right Wing, T-Party. The former center-right of the GOP, is now characterized as an illegitimate position. Or a betrayal even, of the principals held by the true, “Conservative.” Which is obviously BS. If it quacks like the fringe right, and waddles like the fringe right, it’s the fringe right. Which advocates without fail, will propose an absolutist, all or nothing, no compromise ideology. That works very well for tin horn dictators, who rule by holding guns to the heads of their fellow citizens. But seldom, if ever can work in a representative form of government, as I believe polls still show, the vast majorities of us, continue to strongly favor. And it’s a big reason, issues like immigration reform, have languished, and festered. Because of a few ultra hard heads, that refuse to work with everyone else. And, keep insisting the only immigration reform they’ll support, is rounding up all 12 million people, and expelling them, while we build an impenetrable wall along the entire 2000 mile Southern border of the Country. Which ignores the fact, the solution ignores reality. But, it’s what happens when people who aren’t at all prepared with a fundamental understanding of how to serve in the government, are elected anyway. Not because they havea lot of support. But mainly because a few well healed ideologues. Who’s ultimate goal, is to have nothing done about immigration, or much of anything else. Because, the system is working very well for them already. And they adore the T-Party. Because they can be counted on to gum up the works, with their asinine, my way, or the highway approach. But, please, stop calling it, middle ground. Middle ground, we can work with. The T-Party? (A.) You’re for them, or, (B.) You’re aganist them.

    • cjmarley

      Migrant workers are able to find it easy to get jobs because the majority of americans have no desire to work and sweat in the fields and orchards. The migrant workers are willing to take on the **** jobs no matter what the wages are because it’s usually more than they’d make back in their home country. Did you know they send the majority of their wages back home to support their families? They are an easily exploited group of people.

    Bachmann and the people who voted for her are in a class of their own. Reality means nothing them.
    Immigration reform won’t pass, not because of any Constitutional crisis, but because big agribusiness and other companies will lose a cheap source of labor. As long as these companies can get away without paying workman’s comp taxes, paying the payroll tax and finally paying a living wage to employees, poor undocumented workers will be exploited. This country could end illegal immigration today if the executives of agribusiness and others who profit from it were arrested, convicted and thrown in prison. That certainly won’t happen. Does any one here remember what happened when upon the discovery of Wal-Mart contracting companies that employed undocumented workers to clean Wal-Mart stores? Not much.

  • David

    Oh please…you’re obviously no constitutional scholar yourself, ignoring the “subject to the jurisdiction thereof…” part of the 14th Amendment. The drafters of the 14th never, never intended for the children of those not here legally to become automatic citizens and if you had an ounce of common sense or a scintilla of legal knowledge you’d know that. There’s no Supreme Court case or even appeals court case on the subject. Only a footnote in one case and it’s ambiguous at best.

    • Cemetery Girl

      The 14th amendment was added in 1868. It helped clarify that slaves that had been born in the US (which by that point was many) would be US citizens. You also need to understand that in 1868 immigrating to the US did not have our regulations. The laws regarding even immigration of the Chinese people had not even really begun. People seem to forget that there was a time when “legally” coming to the US pretty much meant you didn’t try to stowaway on a ship. Over our country’s history regulations were added, but we did not start with a complicated process to be allowed to enter the country. The fear of other cultures corrupting our own caused the slow changes that brought about regulations.

    • SheltieJim

      Not even a decent try. “subject to the jurisdiction of” is pretty obvious. If I’m sitting in a car in, say, California, drinking directly from a whiskey bottle, I’m likely to be arrested by a California police officer, whether or not I’m a citizen, legal immigrant, or undocumented. Why? Well, I am within the jurisdiction of California. And subject to that jurisdiction.

      • David

        You obviously don’t know much about our immigration and citizenship laws nor do you appear to know much about case law. Different kind of jurisdiction. Look it up. I don’t have the time or willingness to educate your dumb ass.

  • Edward Krebbs

    Hey, just one more amendment to the list. Of course, the right to bear arms without any consideration of need or common sense, we unconditionally support. But look at the list of other amendments she and her ilk seem totally oblivious to: separation of church and state, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, ban on unreasonable search and seizure (and associated fair trials as we say we will use our 2nd Amendment rights to shoot them on the spot; right to counsel, etc.), etc. and I’ve only made it through the first few items of the Bill of Rights.

  • Sandy Greer

    LOL I’m gonna be sorry to see that woman go. I kinda like her being the ‘face of the GOP’…

    Umm….the purpose of the 14th amendment was to grant citizenship to the recently freed slaves,not to allow everyone in the world to sneak across our borders, and then drop a anchor baby for instant citizenship,and get out of deportation free card.And speaking of the misinterpretation of our laws,nowhere in the Constitution is there a right granted to murder your unborn child.That is a “discovered” interpreted right that was “legislated” into existence by the Supreme Court.

    • Raylusk

      What part of the Constitution guaranteeing a right to privacy don’t you understand. This extends to medical procedures. Including abortion. There was no legislation from the Supreme Court here they were just performing their Constitutional duty to enforce the Constitution.

      • David

        Perhaps you can point to the Amendment that grants that right to privacy? Oh, that’s right, you can’t, because it “emanates from the penumbra.” I believe in the right to privacy. I even believe it is enshrined in the Constitution. I also believe Roe to be one of the worst written decision in over 200 years of Supreme Court cases. Completely botched, so much so that even liberal judges and law professors cringe at the language today. So awful.

      • Raylusk

        You are correct there is no explicit language that says right to privacy. But the fourth amendment clearly says “The right of people to be secure in their persons…” This means if the Constitution doesn’t say otherwise you can’t regulate what a person does to themselves. At some pion I believe this will be used to allow people to legally commit suicide. It certainly can be used today to allow people to choose what medical procedures they undergo and like it or not abortion is a medical procedure. The Constitution doesn’t in anyway define the unborn as a person. I’m personally opposed to abortion but I don’t believe it is appropriate to impose my views about abortion on others. I believe the best way to decrease abortions is to give wider access to birth control. We can also implement programs to help parents deal with children that are born with crippling defects in the hope with more assistance parents would choose to allow these babies to be born. By the way in case you didn’t know the abortion rate in 2013 was the lowest since the Supreme Court decision on abortion.

        If you have links readily available that show these liberals cringing at the Supreme Court language on abortion could you post them. I would be interested in reading them.

        So basically you are saying the, yes, your head IS surgically and permanently inserted up your ass. Like all teabaggers. And you are also psychotic in that you have the ability to “pump and dump” women without feeling empathy for them as people like the hookers that you use because it is the only way you will ever get laid you fat balding POS. So basically you are almost a serial killer or mass shooter.

        Well, I’d rather be the teabagger than be like you, the teabaggee. Tell your mom I said hi and to leave me alone. Fat and balding, no. Pumping and dumping your female relatives, yes. Almost a serial killer is better than a certified public idiot, like you.

        First of all, Deane is a girls name. Second of all, I’m sure you are lying about your military service during the 70’s or 80’s where the most combat you saw was probably spit shining your drill sergeant’s boots for special favors or taking it hard in the group shower. Pretty doubtful that a douchebag like you saw any kind of real action. I doubt you were even in the military. Maybe the National Guard or the Coast Guard. I’ll be it was the Air National Guard, zoomie! hahahahah!

      • David

        World renown internet tough girl…Sorry sweetie, I was in the Army in the 80s, Armor Corp. Transferred to the Army Nat. Guard and went to Desert Storm. I saw some action but not as much as you on a night when the sailors have leave, huh?

      • Deane Bobbit

        Isn’t it illegal now to lie about military service under the Stolen Valor Act? Besides, desert storm wasn’t even a real war. I’m sure you think the invasion of granada was a great big bad ass invasion. If you even were in the military that would put you in under the pussy reagan when he cut and ran from the Beirut Barracks bombing and was then caught selling weapons to the same Iranians who were responsible for the bombing. generation of pussies.

      • Deane Bobbit

      • Deane Bobbit

        Then why do you vote for people that are slowly destroying our democracy and stand on taking rights away from others, you huge bag of smashed dicks? Oh I know all you care about is the right to carry your murder weapons so that when you snap and start going after people you will be well armed, but you do realize that everything you NON American conserve-fascists believe in has been fed to you by people that have an interest in keeping you stupid and fat. And got you are fat.

      • David

        I vote for who I believe to be the best person for the job. I have friends who are politicians. They are no where near “destroying our democracy.” They are good people with good hearts, on both sides of the aisle. Weapons are weapons. What I choose to do with them is none of your business so long as I’m not using them against you. You don’t have to like guns. That’s your prerogative. But you do have to accept them. My right to own them comes not from the 2nd Amendment but from my natural right to self-defense. So, my advice to you, you venereal disease carrying slut, is to get over your fear and learn to coexist with me and my guns. I’m willing to put my education credentials up against yours any time.

      • Deane Bobbit

        1. so you admit that you are a traitor for voting for these people.
        2. If one sees a stranger coming in to a restaurant with a gun, the only sensible thing to do is to attack that stranger in self defense, or maybe use the new “stand your ground” law to save those around me or run out of the restaurant and call the police.
        3. Only a totally violent, obsessed right wing freak would hang around a comment section for 2 months to make a comment. You Ayn Rand Freak.
        4. I’m sure you know all about venereal diseases from your sheep, because I highly doubt that a woman would consensually lie with you. Maybe a hooker, like your sister.

      • Deane Bobbit

        If by “education credentials” you mean you are older, fatter, a traitor to your country and the human race in general, and a complete cracker, then you have me beat.
        So if the right to have man made objects were strictly designed to kill others is a “natural right,” maybe you can verify when exactly god created guns, because I don’t see it in anything preceding the 2nd Amendment?
        Additionally, it is so telling that every comment you make has something to do with your fear of gender. Why so intimidated by women that you have to debase yourself to this level with every comment, or are you just that much of a coward?

      • David

        A) Learn to read and write the English language correctly, you uneducated liberal twat.
        B) Guns are used for many purposes other than killing people. I’ll let you educate yourself on that topic.
        C) It is interesting that you have to comment on my size. Attacking a person’s appearance generally means one has no legitimate argument to make, or are you just gratuitously being a cunt?
        D) Speaking of education credentials, JD, cum laude for me. You? Right, that’s what I thought. Now shut up and crawl back in your hole.

      • Deane Bobbit

        1. Guns were designed to kill things. You complete maroon. That’s it. Nothing else. Assault guns were designed to kill people. The first true assault gun was designed by the Nazi’s, which means you, being a fanboy of assault guns, are in essence a right wing racist senior citizen, just like the Nazi’s.
        2. I was not so much commenting on, judging from your Facebook photo, disgustingly dough-boy puffy features as the average age and weight of people of your political persuasion, which will hopefully lead to the demise of your fox viewing, woman hating, rapist political party.
        3. You are not the only one with a J.D., only I’m sure you are lying about your education just as you are lying about your military service in the Boy Scouts or whatever, and that in your case, JD actually means Jerked off Dave, cum loudly-making you a gay prostitute, albeit a poor one. Oh, man when you white people get angry and scared you lie really poorly!

        1. Guns were designed to shoot bullets. If certain people use them to shoot other people, that’s on them, not the gun. Learn some history before you open your pie hole.
        2. There is no such thing as an “assault” weapon. If you mean the automatic machine gun, it was invented by George Gatling and was used in the 19th Century, long before the Nazis came around. Again, learn some history you typically uninformed liberal cunt.
        3. I have no need to lie about anything in my history.
        4. I’m sure you’re gorgeous, thin, and have no imperfections. Post your picture, you fucking coward.

      • Deane Bobbit

        1. Guns were not originally designed to shoot bullets. At the time that the 2nd Amendment was written, there were no bullets. And unless you believe that the Constitution is a living document and open to new concepts, like a liberal does, you must admit to yourself that you are violating the 2nd Amendment by using anything more advanced than a musket, and the D.C. v Heller decision was total BS that flew in the face of 100 years of precedent. You can’t have it both ways. Loser POS Assclown.
        2. The first assault type weapon was the STG 44, a German rifle that was designed during WW11. You offing complete moron and coward traitor to your country. At least learn your subject before you open you d+ck hold.
        3. So you have never lied about anything ever in your life. Sure.
        4. Why so scared of women and so defensive over your fat lazy bulbous cracker disgusting body with your 3 incher, white boy?

      • David

        Oh dear FSM…another idiot on the internet who does not understand the Constitution.
        1) I cannot violate the 2nd Amendment. It is a prohibition on the government and does not restrict individuals. It is not a “living” document. It says what it says. Live with it.
        2) Gatling Gun. Look it up. I’ll accept your apology in advance.
        3) I’m not scared of women, just ugly people such as you. You pay men to have sex with you, don’t you?

      • Deane Bobbit

        So you are saying the the Gatling Gun, a crew served weapon is the equivalent to an assault rifle. It wasn’t even semi-automatic. You conservo-fascist pigs have really gone down hill with standards for IQ.
        The Second Amendment, there is no such thing as a “2nd Amendment” states “well regulated militia,” indicating, you guessed it, regulation by the government. God you have sperm-breath. But in any event, you agree that you should be restricted to the meaning of “arms” at the time that the Constitution was written, which included muskets, spears and arrows, and of course knives. If it isn’t a “living document.” You simply can’t have it both ways.
        And your comments do indeed indicate an elevated level of misogyny. You may be a danger to women around you with your hatred of women. Was mommy too mean to you, like most serial killing, potential mass shooters? That’s why you probably pay men to have sex with you as well.

        I also notice U did NOT reply with ‘links’ showing liberals cringing re: roe V wade
        haircut? doth alopecia be thy bane??

      • Deane Bobbit

        So you don’t think there is a right to vote either since it isn’t specifically enumerated in the constitution? Should someone also be stoned for touching a woman who is on their period as mentioned in the bible?

    • moe/larry & curly keys

      so; its ok to MURDER thousands of brave soldiers in a lie based republican ( see: haliburton funds) war?
      enjoy Hillary 2016-2024

  • GOPhater

    I cannot believe how a totally brain-dead human can speak! Astounding!!

  • Bachman is the P.T.Barnum candidate. “This way to the egress!”

    The GOP clowns running for president know they don’t stand a chance; some generic guy in a suit will lose to Hillary, but the hucksters will make oodles of money

    “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof”

    Courts have supported the first clause but chosen to ignore or interpret away the second clause. Citizenships for anyone born here is the law of the land. But are the children of foreigners born here subjects of their own country or the US? Or does “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” mean that those children are subject to observing stop signs and other laws?

    Meanwhile, hospitals have had to close in Texas because of the demand by all the short of cash parents who come here to give their children the advantages of a free US citizenship and birth tourism packages have become an option for Chinese mothers. Don’t believe me? Google “birth tourism”. I’m not sure that is what the judges had in mind.

    And let’s not forget that Reagan granted a blanket amnesty to end the illegal alien problem once and for all in return for the Democrats’ promise to protect the border.

  • Actually, the Republicans are very pro immigration, when it is Cubans fleeing Cuba to join their Republican relatives in Florida. That is why they were up in arms when Elián González was repatriated.

  • The Truth Teller

    The GOP/Faux News believe if you tell a lie long enough on different venues it will become the truth. And yes, if Ms. Bachman had a clue of what she says she would hit her own mute button.

    If you you put Ms. Bachman in a room with Ms. Palin, locked the door from the inside and gave them a key with directions to the lock they we need to call 411 for help getting out.

  • Lottie Hughes

    I wish this heifer would shut her mouth cause if you think about it if you are not a full blooded indian you are a descendant of illegal immigrants the only difference is they came and stole the land and forced the rightful residents “by birth to this land” to become their slaves and murdered, raped, and tortured the rest.. this land was not owned by blonde hair blue eyed white people.. smh Idk about the rest of you but all i can say is “IRONY”!!

    fukn bigot if you ask me.. ijs and on another note I can probably bet my entire years pay that her family somewhere down the line was and illegal immigrant and had their children here making her a legal citizen or hey fuk it lets deport the whole damn country cause everyone of us fall under this amendment one way or another…

    Preferential, proprietary interpretations of the Constitution and bible is the TEA-Evangelical-Libertarian-Republican-GOP version to be enhanced and put forth. They DO NOT CARE! TEA-Republicans do not want to help the people if that is going to help the nation which will benefit the president. They are hurting the people to hurt the president. 2012 didn’t teach them anything. Strict interpretation of Amendments and the Constitution to their liking has always been their mantra. TEA-Republicans have become discriminators infused with TEA! All laws passed by the Congress are applicable evenly across the board to all residents and naturalized citizenry. The Democratic party is inclusive, while the TEA-Republican party has become exclusionary! It is going to take boots-on-the-ground, full-court press to off-set massive money to be thrown around. Work hard to clean state houses and Washington. IF YOU DO NOT REGISTER TO VOTE AND DO NOT VOTE, OR ARE DENIED YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE, IT IS JUST LIKE VOTING FOR THE OPPOSITION!
    ELECTIONS DO HAVE CONSEQUENCES – LOCALLY – AT THE STATE LEVEL – AND NATIONALLY!
    We will have to get involved locally, as that is where the greatest influence and control is! It is going to take boots-on-the-ground, full-court press to clean out Washington and state houses across the nation.

    The Ronald Reagan that conservatives worship never existed. He only exists in their warped minds. They are so knee deep in their hypocrisy that they literally contradict themselves often and don’t even realize it or they hope the American people won’t notice. The sad part is the “lame-stream media” never calls them out on their lies. One great example is the CBO report on the ACA. The cons are up in arms because the ACA actually gives people a choice to cut back on hours to maybe raise a family, start a business or go back to school, you know, the FREEDOM to choose. Supposedly the republicans are for freedom and family values but yet they don’t want Americans to have this freedom to choose. Yet they’re always criticizing households where children are practically raising themselves. Well here’s an opportunity where maybe one parent can choose to stay home with the kids while the other parent works but no, republicans like usual are against anything that benefits the poor or middle-class American.

  • Cambel

    If it isn’t the 2nd Amendment, they don’t care.

  • Stephen Barlow

    The original wording of the 14th was to keep slave owners from claiming the offspring of their former property as property.

    Are undocumented workers treated like property? F*ck YEAH! So what Mic hell is really saying in that snide, underhanded Republican way is.. WE NEED MORE SLAVES!!!
