BPR Quote of the Day: Starvation As a Lesson

Michele Bachmann is so mean she won’t even let them eat cake……

“Our nation needs to stop doing for people what they can and should do for themselves. Self reliance means, if anyone will not work, neither should he eat.”

                      Presidential Candidate Michele Bachmann (R-MN)

  1. Bill Hicks says:

    Nazi Germany comparisons are very much overused, but Hitler and his henchmen were quite fond of the phrase, “useless eaters.” Just sayin’.

  2. Arlen, thnx for sharing this repugnant woman’s comment.

    A door knob has more compassion than Bachmann. Here is what I wrote about the Repugnantlicans in my book:

    “Wondering what makes malcontent cons tick I searched the literature looking for their psychological makeup (PMU). I found it in a big study of many smaller studies spanning 50 years. While there are always caveats about most research findings, a 50-year trail that doesn’t detour would seem to lead straight to a durable conclusion; namely, cons by and large (there are always individual exceptions) and wherever they are (cons from 12 different countries were studied) resist change, are fearful, are aggressive, are tolerant of inequality to the extent of even endorsing it, are dogmatic, are intolerant of ambiguity and uncertainty, are hostile to outsiders, and are more comfortable with simplicity than with complexity.35
    If this PMU is really true, PU! It’s repugnant. But cons weren’t totally born that way and I can imagine some of them have been duped along the way by the corpocracy and its demagogues. I’m convinced, moreover, that some cons at least could rejoin the kinder, more caring part of the human race if they chose to do so. Meanwhile, if the “Repugnantlican Party” should regain “control” of Congress, it will become even more subservient to powerful corporate interests that give lip service to democracy while being contemptuous of and harmful to the general welfare of the American people. I hasten to add that whenever the “Damnocratic Party” has “controlled” Congress” the slavish catering to the corporate member of the corpocracy has not diminished one iota. Neither of these two servile political parties control Congress; powerful corporate interests control Congress (and the White House, and the U.S. Supreme Court, and state capitals, legislatures, and judiciary). And it will forever be that way until we organize and activate a powerful opposition to the corpocracy.”

    • I totally agree, Gary. Radical changes are needed to get this country back to the America it was when I was growing up, when there was a balance of power and working people had opportunities to better their lives. Now we have a corporate state that totally controls our political and economic system.
