Michele Bachmann thinks everyone should get off the government teat...except her.

Michele Bachmann’s family farm operating in apparent violation of Wisconsin's financial institutions laws
Bachmann’s deceased father-in-law still registered as agent and general partner for family farm that has provided her federal farm subsidies.
By Karl Bremer

Michele Bachmann’s family farm limited partnership in Buffalo County, WI, still lists her late father-in-law Paul Bachmann as the partnership’s registered agent and general partner with the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions, even though he has been deceased since May 2009. That puts the partnership in violation of Wisconsin state law, according to a spokesperson for the Department of Financial Institutions.

The Bachmann Farm Family Partnership comprises 951 acres with at least one home on 38 parcels in Independence, WI, with a total assessed value of $664,950. Michele and Marcus Bachmann are partners in the farm partnership, which was established April 12, 2001, with an ownership share valued at between $100,001 and $250,000. Its corporate records on file with the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions listed Paul Bachmann of Independence, WI, as the partnership’s general partner and registered agent as of Jan. 31, 2011.

It’s not known who—if anyone—besides Michele and Marcus are involved in the partnership. Wisconsin state law does not require the disclosure of anyone other than the general partner and registered agent for limited partnerships.

According to a Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions spokesman, if a registered agent or general partner dies, the law requires that the partnership file notice with the state. That office has received no notice of a change in general partner or registered agent for the Bachmann Farm Family Limited Partnership since its initial filing in 2001, according to the spokesman. Paul Bachmann died May 20, 2009, so that would appear to put the Bachmanns in violation of the law.

However, the Department of Financial Institutions has no investigatory or enforcement powers, so it’s not clear how the Bachmanns would be brought into compliance.

In Buffalo County’s tax records, the billing address for the partnership’s properties is listed as “c/o Marcus Bachmann, Bachmann Farm Family Limited Partnership,” at the Bachmann’s Stillwater, MN, address.

BACHMANN’S FARM SUBSIDIES
Bachmann has claimed between $32,503 and $105,000 in income from the farm since 2007, according to her congressional financial disclosure forms for 2007, 2009 and 2010. She still has not reported her 2008 income from the farm on her disclosure form from that year—an apparent violation of yet another law--congressional reporting requirements.

This is the same Bachmann family farm that has collected a total of $154,755 in federal farm subsidies since the partnership was formed in 2001, most of it in corn and dairy subsidies. Paul Bachmann collected a total of $259,332 in federal farm subsidies from 1995-2009. However, it’s not known whether Michele and Marcus were involved in the farm prior to the establishment of the family partnership in 2001.

While Farmer Bachmann has always been happy to collect federal farm subsidies on her family farm, Congresswoman Bachmann recently proposed replacing those subsidies with “farmer savings accounts.” It’s not known whether the Bachmanns, who live in a $1.27 million home on a Stillwater golf course, would open such an account.

NOT THE FIRST TIME
Michele Bachmann has sat on the House Financial Services Committee for over four years. She often touts her advanced degree in tax law, and her past as an IRS lawyer. Yet she has a long history of sloppy bookkeeping, questionable financial reporting, and ethics violations, both in the Minnesota State Senate and Congress.

Just last year, the Federal Elections Commission in a 10-page letter rapped the congresswoman’s campaign for 71 improper entries and 18 unacceptable employer or occupation entries in its 2009 end-of-year report.


If Michele Bachmann can't keep her own financial and ethical houses in order, what makes her think she's qualified to tend to the nation's?

well you know for a tax attorney you would think she understands some about economics....i guess not. her husband"s clinic to "pray away the gay", makes me cringe. personally tea party repubs hate obama and will do or say anything to get him out of office...bachmann is rising in the polls and what she says doesn't matter to these people. if its a way to make obama a one term president, its all good to them. no i could never vote for her. michelle bachman believes she should "obey" her husband, and believes God "told her who to marry, to go to law school, have children, and get into politics." if God told her "to jump off a bridge", i wonder if she would do that too? bottomline her job is just to defeat obama.

I might vote for her. I don't know much about her, so I'd have to educate myself. Sure as hell not voting for Obama.

Couldn't vote for McCain/Palin in '08 either. That was a lose-lose election there if there's ever been one.

O’Reilly also devoted the “Talking Points” monologue section of the show to laying out the case for raising the debt ceiling, and singled out Bachmann for criticism for refusing to understand or accept the reality of the debt ceiling.

Is there any point in having a debt ceiling? Every time we get close to it we raise it. It's like extending your slutty teenage daughter's curfew every time she breaks it.

Guess who said the following:

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies.

Michelle Bachmann? Sarah Palin? Rand Paul? Paul Ryan? No, it was Senator Barack Obama.

"Do you think that the effects of the Bush taxes cuts causing increased pressure on the debt limit and the fact that this new money was needed to pay for a war that should not have started in the first place might have caused some people on the other side of the house to make comments like that?"

Did the "reckless spending" end when the Dems took over Congress and later when Obama became President? Why, no it did not. The wars have continued and expanded. The reckless spending has become worse. The only thing that has changed is who is in the White House and suddenly Democrats can't wait to increase the debt limit (despite being dead set against it when Bush was Prez) and Reps are trying to hold the line (despite being gung ho about increasing it when Bush was Prez).

"Did the Democrats hold the country hostage until they got everything they wanted?"

No one is holding the country hostage. Raising the debt ceiling is bad for America. It was bad then and it's worse now.

"On a side note, does anyone know what the over under is on Bachmann's husband coming out of the closet?"

Why do you think Bachmann is so against gay marriage? As soon as it's legal he's gonna sue for divorce and marry Ted Haggard.

"And then there's the Bible, which calls for the death penalty for men who have sex with each other. While Bachmann has never made that call herself, her religious views appear to be heavily influenced by a theological strain known as Christian Reconstructionism, which in matters of sexuality and gender relations places great emphasis on the draconian law of the Old Testament Book of Leviticus."

The Bible also calls for the death penalty for adulterers. So I have an idea. Let's agree to make homosexuality a capital offense as long as we first execute all the Christians guilty of adultery. Of course by the time we're done with them there'll be no one left who wants to execute gays so we won't have to do it.

Everybody must get stoned!!

H3ll...if we all subscribed to the Bachmann/Reconstructionist interpretation of the Babble, there would be hardly anyone left to vote, much less run. Mowing the yard on Sunday or the other Sabbath, Saturday, would wipe out well over half.
http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/says_about/stoning.html

Those who take the Lord's name in vain would be a close second.

For touching Mount Sinai

Whosoever toucheth the mount shall be surely put to death. Exodus 19:13

For taking "accursed things"

Achan ... took of the accursed thing. ... And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones. ... So the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger. Joshua 7:1-26

For cursing or blaspheming

And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him. Leviticus 24:16

For adultery (including urban rape victims who fail to scream loud enough)

If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her; Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city. Deuteronomy 22:23-24

For animals (like an ox that gores a human)

If an ox gore a man or a woman, that they die: then the ox shall be surely stoned. Exodus 21:28

For a woman who is not a virgin on her wedding night

If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her ... and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid: Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel's virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate: And the damsel's father shall say ... these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city. ... But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die. Deuteronomy 22:13-21

For worshipping other gods

If there be found among you ... that ... hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them ... Then shalt thou ... tone them with stones, till they die. Deuteronomy 17:2-5

If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers ... thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die. Deuteronomy 13:5-10

For disobeying parents

If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother ... Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city ... And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die. Deuteronomy 21:18-21

For witches and wizards

A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them. Leviticus 20:27

For giving your children to Molech

Whosoever ... giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones. Leviticus 20:2

For breaking the Sabbath

They found a man that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day. ... And the LORD said unto Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall stone him with stones.... And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and stoned him with stones, and he died; as the LORD commanded Moses. Numbers 15:32-56

For cursing the king

Thou didst blaspheme God and the king. And then carry him out, and stone him, that he may die. 1 Kings 21:10

Whenever anyone on any side throws out the "Anti-American" or "Un-american" labels then that person is irrelevant and insignificant in any discussion and should be cast aside to oblivion.

No American is ever Anti-American just because they have differing views of what they want America to be or what they consider to be a good America. When you start drawing that line that is meant more to prop yourself up than it is to put anyone down, then you're gone. You have no ability for rational thought and certainly lack the wide scope of understanding to lead or to govern.

Religion is a personal thing between each of us and our God. America was founded to ensure our rights to worship how and who we choose. Faith based initiatives and moral legislation shows favor to specific religion thus alienating the rights of those with other beliefs. I do favor a moral and more Godly America but not at the EXPENSE of America. The irony is that I favor America and the Constitution as they were conceived in the beginning and in Bachmann's eyes my position as such would label ME as Un-American.

Obama is sounding more Reaganesque every day. Reagan raised the debt ceiling 17 times...
Ronnald Reagan..Sept. 26, 1987 concerning the absolute necessity of raising the debt ceiling.
Quote, "This brinkmanship threatens the holders of government bonds and those who rely on Social Security and veterans benefits. Interest rates would skyrocket, instability would occur in financial markets, and the Federal deficit would soar. The United States has a special responsibility to itself and to the world to meet its obligations. It means we have a well-earned reputation for reliability and credibility - two things that set us apart from much of the world."

The world has been ending for Bachmann since at least 2006. Does any sane person in the US believe she should be allowed withing a thousand miles of the White House?
http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2011/07/18/264811/bachmann-predicted-world-end-2006/

BACHMANN:" Lord, the day is at hand. We are in the last days. You are a Jehovah God. We know that the times are in your hands. And we give them to you…The day is at hand, Lord, when your return will come nigh. Nothing is more important than bringing sheep into the fold. Than bringing new life into the kingdom…You have weeded that garden. The harvest is at hand. "

Her pastor makes Rev. Wright seem like Gandhi.

I just heard today that the debt ceiling has been raised 60 times. I don't see the point in having it. It gets raised every time we get near it so it certainly doesn't act as a brake on debt growth. And every time we get near it politicians and the media react with doomsday scenarios until the American people are begging for tax hikes. Oh never mind, I just figured out why we have a debt ceiling.

Freshman House Republicans who rode a wave of voter discontent into office last year vowed to stop out-of-control spending, but that has not stopped several of them from quietly trying to funnel millions of federal dollars into projects back home.


They have pushed for dozens of projects in their districts, including military programs opposed by the president, replenishing beach sand lost to erosion, a $700 million bridge in Minnesota and a harbor dredging project in Charleston, S.C. Some of their projects were once earmarks, political shorthand for pet projects penciled into spending bills, which Republicans banned when they took over the House.

On the Minnesota-Wisconsin border, local officials and members of Congress have pushed for a new four-lane bridge over the St. Croix River that was co-sponsored by Representative Sean P. Duffy, a Wisconsin freshman Republican, and Representative Michele Bachmann, the three-term Minnesota Republican who is running for president.

Opponents labeled the bridge an earmark, but Mr. Duffy and Mrs. Bachmann said the bridge was critical to handle increased traffic that an 80-year-old bridge nearby can no longer handle alone. They defend the spending by arguing that it was not an earmark since there were no specific costs listed in the bill itself, nor is it a financing bill. The legislation calls only for a bridge to be built.

The National Park Service has opposed the project, saying it would violate the Wild and Scenic River Act by harming the river’s scenic and recreational qualities.

That just makes them like all the other non-Libertarian politicians. It's funny that you're complaining about this since people on the Left constantly complain about how the federal government needs to spend more on infrastructure.

No, they're not. The rise of the tea party movement was partly because of the neo-conservative influence in the Republican party.

Tea party ideology is best described as paleo-conservative reacting to challenge the neo-conservatives in the party. In fact, it's almost an archetype for paleo-conservativism. The senior Republicans in the party have had to deal with the mayhem brought in by freshman paleoconservative Republicans who aren't in lockstep with the neoconservatives that were the primary makeup of the Republican legislatures of the 2000 decade. The Republican party is changing very quickly right now, and this is why the House has trouble getting everybody on the same page, even in bipartisan efforts.

Remember the problems Obama had just trying to renew the Patriot Act provisions? That would've been open and shut signoff 6 years ago. The intervention in Libya is another good example. Neo-conservative politics would've backed that all the way, but again, rebellion in Congress due to the new makeup of incoming Republican freshmen. However, those that would've normally backed that kind of military action 6 years ago realize they can use it as a political tool and have latched onto it and seized the PR possibilities provided by the new guys' objections.

And by the way, what type of experience does Bachmann have that could make her a viable candidate to run this country?

Let me get this straight: you supported Obama, but you question what experience Bachmann has that qualifies her for presidency? Really? Have you taken a look at Obama's career before his presidential candidacy?

I honestly kind of envy your blind loyalty to whoever is wearing a D tag. It must be so nice to so easily arrive at the conclusions you want, completely unencumbered by a need for facts, instead just replaced with clicking random smiley faces. Life would be so easy and simple...

"No, they're not. The rise of the tea party movement was partly because of the neo-conservative influence in the Republican party. "

Sure, the Tea Party originally rose up because they like Ron Paul's message of small government and personal liberty. However the movement was quickly taken over by the neocons. Paleo-cons oppose foreign wars while the neo-cons relish in them. So we see that the Tea Partiers are the biggest cheerleaders for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. They only reason why they oppose the actions in Libya, Yemen, and Pakistan are because they were ordered by a Democrat President. That's pretty standard for neo-cons. Look at how quickly Newt flip-flopped on bombing Libya. He went from recommending it to opposing it. The only thing that changed over those couple weeks was that Obama started bombing Libya!

Paleo-cons have traditionally opposed Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare. In response to the impending passage of Obamacare what were the Tea Partiers crying out? "Stop socialism, and don't you dare touch our Medicare".

Paleo-cons are opposed to government spending on subsidies. Yet Bachmann, the Queen of the Tea Party, gets subsidies for her farm. Neo-cons have always supported government helping out corporations.

Neo-cons, like the Tea Partiers, believe in small government only when the expansion of government is proposed by Democrats. Tea Partiers are in favor of denying religious rights to Muslims and marriage rights to gays. This is what we expect from neo-cons but not paleo-cons.

Tea Partiers and neo-cons alike are in the back pocket of Israel. Yet paleo-cons have consistently argued against getting involved in "entangling alliances" with foreign countries.

You raise a lot of good points, but I want to seize on the criticism of Bachmann and the subsidy issue. I am opposed to using a state lottery in order to fund education (very regressive tax), but that didn't stop me from attending a university. She may oppose subsidies for farms, but still accept them (and because of farm subsidies, a farm cannot function competitively without them). Opposing the way the system doesn't mean you have to be so extreme as to starve outside the system instead of lobbying to change it while still in it.

I'm opposed to the federal control over state highway systems, but I still drive on them when I go visit my family.

Michelle Bachmann - Tax lawyer and Christian Dominionist
You've heard, no doubt, that Michelle Bachmann's husband told her to become a tax lawyer. So she, being an obedient Christian wife, did as her husband commanded. Sarah Posner has published an excellent article at religion dispatchers.org.

Bachmann graduated in the first class of the O.W. Coburn School of Law which was then a part of Oral Roberts University. Oral Roberts University is a hotbed of christianist thought derived from the Radical Calvinist preacher R. J. Rushdoony who taught that the old testament bible should be the basis of American Law rather than the Constitution.

This is also the belief of Mr. and Mrs. Bachmann. I wonder if either of them have ever read the Handmaid's Tale. Anyone considering voting for Bachmann should read Margaret Atwood's excellent book.
