Michele Bachmann is back at it wildly lying about what the President is spending on his trip to Asia. One of the Chief Executives responsibilities is foreign policy so I would venture a guess that it is important that he travel to countries we enjoy diplomatic relations. Here's a great piece from Vanity Fair: VF on Bachmann
As for Ms. Bachmann who just led one of the most expensive campaigns for a house member if not the most expensive I would ask, "How is that money being spent helping your constituants? You're never in the district, you only publicize yourself and you spew hate." I'd rather the money spent on that election get us out of the Republican mess we're in which we are embroiled. 6th District Minnesota Spending
Why not progressive?
At times I'm frustrated by those that don't follow politics in the United States. I worry they don't vote, I worry they don't get their opinion out there. Of course, I am very progressive and very much in opposition to the right, however, I'm being inspired by a much greater goal than politics. Politics is all cyclical. It's not important in the grand scheme of things. The important part of life is what all the regular people are doing. I'm changing the focus of this blog a bit. Not because I think the Tea Party won the midterms or anything like that but because I want to elevate us above that sort of derogatory nonsense into something that is far more useful. Something to save us and save the world. Small goals, I know. But seriously something to talk about.
