"MANYyears ago I worked at an industrial hog farm owned by the Coeur d’Alene Indian tribe in northern Idaho. The place stank of the dead and rotting brood sows we chopped out of farrowing crates – bred to death in the drive for pork production. And it stank of the massive ponds that held millions of gallons of hog feces and rotting baby pigs, and every square inch was poisoned by the pesticides used to kill insects that hogs attract and the antibiotics fed to hogs from hundred pound sacks." -Joe Bageant

Today an ounce of gold is around $1300. The amount of gold available for use is limited. More people. Limited commodity.
Sort of like space on the Garden of Eden planet Earth. Limited.
Can you only imagine a future humanity that can't grasp the consequences of uncontrolled population increases? Sort of like Rupert Murdoch being an honest information person.
One might argue that she is ANTI Government. Ms. Bachmann and her family made more than $200,000 from the GOVERNMENT in the form of farm subsidies not to grow STUFF. Her husband made more than $200,000 from the GOVERNMENT in the form of medicaid payments counseling unfortunate people with his Christian ETHICS.
Ms. Bachmann has made 100s of thousands of $$$ as a congress person from the GOVERNMENT in the form of a salary. The government she hates so much has provided her with excellent health care for the past 6 years or so as a 3 term congress person.
And Ms. Bachmann now wants to continue receiving 100s of thousands in salary from the GOVERNMENT, she detest so much, as President.
For someone who detest and hates GOVERNMENT,
Ms. Bachmann certainly has benefited tremendously from the GOVERNMENT.

“Most of us didn’t think that. What we did learn is this — it’s a hostage that’s worth ransoming.
And it focuses the Congress on something that must be done.”
It is a continuum extending from the apathy of the poorest to the hard-edged anger of those with more to lose. Which ain’t a lot, brother, when your household income hovers around $30,000 or $35,000 with both people working…
Until those with power and access decide that it’s beneficial to truly educate people, and make it possible to get an education without going into crushing debt, then the mutt people here in the heartland will keep on electing dangerous dimwits in cowboy boots.”
If I'm a Conservative Republican, the image that is constantly popping into my head when Mr. Huntsman's name comes up is the acronym RINO.
Is Mr. Huntsman a Republican in Name Only?
My preference would certainly be Mr. Huntsman. I have a bias for moderate and reasonable human being leading the country. And if a Republican has to replace President Obama I certainly HOPE that Republican is Jon Huntsman.
Huntsman in the White House would not be a great deal different than Obama in the White House. The most glaring difference in the two men is that one is a White American and the other is a Black American. I think a Huntsman nomination from my perspective as a Democrat would be a win/win situation.
So, Republicans, be reasonable and nominate Jon Huntsman.
From a Comment I uncovered from a Google search:
Among the hallmarks of marxist argument are the words "fairness"and "equality", instead of "individual liberty"(the antithesis of "equality", since Liberty accepts the reality of inherent inequality). And "fairness" is the hallmark of the view that the Constitution doesn't mean what it says, but should be interpreted according to the "general intent" of the document.
These are both words Barack Obama emphasises often. Mr. Huntsman's dedication to "fairness" and "equality" are pretty big red flags to me.
Likewise, he speaks Mandarin Chinese and was Obama's ambassador to China. We should end free trade with China and bring industries and millions of jobs back to the US. I doubt Mr. Huntsman would agree with that.
In Short, we already have a President who shares a lot of views with Huntsman. His name is Barack Obama, and I want him and his philosphy replaced--not perpetuated.
We're rid of Daniels, and hopefully Huntsman soon follows him into oblivion.
Not what is best for Democrats and not what is best for Republicans. Other wise we put party before country.
Transformative Change doesn't happen overnight. Especially when you have individuals fighting that change as fiercely as some Republicans are fighting the President.
In my 62 years on the planet, I have NEVER heard the party out of office say that their primary goal was to remove a President from office. When removal of a President from the White House is the primary objective of the opposition, you ain't gonna get much done.
Resolving the problems of the the country requires ALL of us working hard and not just the President. Democrats, Republicans and Independents working together. And when the PRIMARY goal of the opposition is to remove the President from the White House, you don't get much agreement and support from the other side.
Anyone reading this far would be appalled at a Congressperson, Senator, or President engaging in any activity that benefits the voter in exchange for the vote, or contribution. >p> I haven't gotten every change I would like, but I think the President has made an HONEST effort and I will vote for him again!
Every action and strategy of Republicans for the past 3 years as been focused on one event:
REMOVE PRESIDENT OBAMA FROM THE WHITE HOUSE!
It is well documented what the objective of Republicans is. Party before Country.
Republicans have by design purposely followed a decision path that they think will lead to the removal of President Obama from the White House.
The DO NOTHING Republicans DO NOTHING hoping if Republicans DO NOTHING the President will be blamed by non critical thinking citizens.
Lesser of two evils? Cynical!
I have a real choice and I will VOTE for the President on November 12th. (Oops!)

So Pap called Bumps again, and told him the vault was too small. “No problem,” Bumps said over the store’s phone receiver, “I’ll send someone out to install a larger vault.” Bumps’ crew finished the job less than an hour before the scheduled funeral. Maw arrived half an hour before the service. She took one look at Teesie’s coffin, ran her hand over it, and exclaimed, “My Lord! This is not the rosewood coffin we paid for!” Instead, the coffin was a cheaper thing, with fake gilt handles instead of brass, and rosewood stain over pine. “It’s been switched!” she said. During the installation of the larger vault, the funeral home had swapped the more expensive coffin for a cheaper pine version. “We need to go down to the store and telephone Bumps, make him get up here with the coffin we paid for,” Maw snapped. She looked at Pap, and Pap looked at her, and both realized that was never going to happen. With the funeral less than a half-hour away, it just wasn’t to be.
“You can’t send everybody off and tell them to come back tomorrow,” Pap said. “So we let Bumps get away with this?” Maw said. Bumps knew all this, too. He also knew that nobody was going to challenge him, because he would just say, “Sue me.” And lawsuits cost money. Besides that, no one in the family was irreverent enough to dig Teesie’s body up again to prove he had switched coffins. The funeral proceeded as planned. Bumps went on to build a large regional funerary business that he sold for millions, amass commercial real estate, and hold political office. Three generations of Bageants and not a few Unger Store folks know this story. And it is as good a symbol as any for the traditional rural suspicion of the American business community, which translates into the rural– urban divide today.
