The Young Turks' commentary on Michele Bachmann's comment about God mandating that good Christian women are submissive to their husbands.
I'm wondering what the secular community thinks of these remarks by Michele Bachmann about how women need to be submissive to their husbands, and receive permission from the husband to attend school or pursue their dreams in that fashion. Obviously this woman is anti-feminist and has utterly no chance of winning the candidacy. And if she did, I'd be leaving America before anybody else because it would absolutely seal our cultural doom.
I furthermore want your thoughts of her tripping over herself to reconcile the idea of 'being a submissive woman' with it meaning 'being respectful'. I made a comment on Facebook earlier today that couples should respect each other, and if her definition stands, then her husband must also say he's submissive to his wife. Otherwise she admits he does not respect her.
Just imagining that pinhead as our President gives me the willies. Just the fact that she is a (more or less) serious candidate for the job makes me sick to my stomach. It lifted my eyebrows when all of the candidates raised their hands when asked which of them would reject a deal which would have been $10:1 spending cuts to taxes. I wish the mediator would have asked, "what about 20:1? 50:1? 100:1?" Do these morons have no clue when looking a gift horse in the mouth? 10:1 is an AMAZING deal for the right; any Dem who would have voted for such a deal wouldn't last through another election.... But fine, let them stand up for their principles (i.e. selling out to the rich). They will fall with them too - even a majority of people who are conservative now think that the rich should have to pay more in taxes than they do now. And I'm with you, Ava. If that... thing got elected President, I'd be outta this country faster than shit out of a caffeinated goose. Seriously, we'd might as well give the US up for dead at that point.
Also, what has happened in the Middle East since last week when you posted this, that has transformed it from "totally dysfunctional" to "sane"?
"And while I think Islamic culture is marginally better than liberal Western culture, I suggest that anyone considering Islam as an alternative first visit an Islamic country. I have been to Egypt and Jordan, and they are totally dysfunctional. Islam has its own problems."
That's a lot of progess for 7 days. Or....you could just be a fool.
Yes, that's it. A fool who chooses weak-willed female partners so as not to threaten his own insecure self-image.
Yup, that about sums it up.
