Meet the Press: November 13, 2011

Updated on November 13, 2011

Meet the Press


Penn State

While what happened at Penn State was horrific, it is hardly limited to Penn State. It is a national problem. Specifically charities which claim to provide services to at risk children are frought with abuses including but not limited to sexual child abuse. And there needs to be a national approach to dealing with this type of crime.

Specifically I have profiled this type of offender and in all probability the offender was abused himself and child abuse has become a learned behavior. It hardly justifies it but it does give us an opportunity to intervene. I will include a link to this paper so you can read it for yourself.

Michelle Bachmann

First and foremost she and Congress are too busy to deal with child sexual abuse. Amazingly if Congress wrote a bill to establish judicial interventions with child sex offenders it would minimize sex abuse in America. And it would be such a simple success that both the Republicans and the Democrats could unite over. But Bachmann says, she is too busy.

But Bachmann was pandering her new book which makes me believe she is only in this race for money.

She also tore into Romney and Obama. Actually Obama is Bachmann's favorite whipping post. But now she is focused on Romney as well.

Bachmann is very anti-gay.

So Bachmann also went after Romney for supporting civil unions. She is clearly anti-gay and if the gay community doesn't watch out Bachmann will not only repeal Obama Care as she calls it but also the No Fear Act.

Michelle Bachmann lied again.

On Meet the Press Bachmann lied and said, "That terrorists are being caught and released or killed because we didn't have prisons to hold them.". David Gregory rightly basically told her she was not speaking accurately. More realistically Michelle Bachmann in all probability Michelle Bachmann is just a pathological liar but David Gregory is just too polite to say so.

But Bachmann has a long history of not telling the truth. And she has told some whopper lies on the campaign trail.

Bachmann On Intelligence Committee

Michelle Bachmann has continual and habitual used her postiion on the Intelligence Committe to twist the truth and bend it to her favor. And she is not smart enough to know people know she is lying. Again I think this is a pathological problem at this point.

But as a member sitting on the intelligence committe she claimed the ACLU is running the CIA. Does Bachmann know it is her job to provide oversight ot make certain no other agency outside the executive branch runs the CIA. So Bachmann admitted hse has failed at her job on the intelligence committee.

Gregory with Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Debbie WassermanSchultz said Obama was not focused on creating jobs but keeping jobs for the middle class. So for every person who is on food stamps which is 1 in every 7 people are not included in Obama's plans. She also admitted that there are executive orders flying out of the White House because Barack Obama could not get agreement in Congress to move the economy forward.

As for the super committee, but he is lobbying them as well with what he believes should be cut. Schultz blamed the Republicans but Gregory stopped her as well and asked her why would anyone vote for Barack Obama who has increased American Debt by 41% in three years?

And Schultz without flinching said he was trying to help the ever so extinct elusive middle class.


I give high points to David Gregory. Although I will never stop missing Tim Russert. But Gregory really asked some of the hard questions and he stopped politicians from putting out misinformation on his show.

I think Bachmann career is over in politics period. And as for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, I think Barack Obama could do better. Two women with such disdain don't exactly inspire faith in either party. The first party to go negative is going to lose this race.

      Hi N. E.,

      Both parties are against the children and families with disabilities so we have no representation. Bachmann is just selling books and making big bucks pretending to run for president. Your right though she is the biggest welfare person in America.

      I appreciate you following as I publish a lot.

      But we have our back channels of communicatin as well.

      Take care my dear friend we need some representation in DC.

      I did not know that Debbie was against children with disabilities. Sad to hear.

      Congresswomen Bachmann receives government money for almost everything. LOL. Foster care, working as a lawyer for the IRS, her husband's clinic, and being a congresswoman -- LOL. She wants to stops taxes. How would she ever get paid? LOL.

      Hey, of course I still follow you. I saw your Hub on Face Book though. LOL.

      You and Alex Take Care,

      Hi my dear friend N.E.,

      I wasn't certain if you were even following me anymore but admittedly I must be chased lately as I have churning out a lot of hubs.

      You would not be a fan of Wasser Schultz if you knew of her views on children with disabilities and thier parents. She has been firmly against children with disabilities in the state of Floirda.

      And Bachmann is just an embarrassment. Actually as a woman I am embarrassed by both of these women. We have to get better women representatives representing the majority of the minority in this country which are women. Sadly enough, the paper I wrote that provides a profile for sex offenders was written back in 1999 and the government had access to it. In the paper it clearly states that homosexuality has no cooreleation with sexual abuse and yet the research was shut down for fear it would hurt the gay movement. And then things like this happen and everyone wonders why no one did anything to prevent it. I did clearly so back in 1999 and it was ignored because of lobbyiests. And I like gay people and wish for them to have all their rights. I am just not fond of crime.

      We could eliminate serial killers and sexual crime by early intervention in the juvenille court system but our government is too afraid to do so. And that doesn't rest on one party but one both because crime is not partisan nor is abuse.

      200 years later and child sex abuse is still going on and we know how to profile it and stop it and yet our government is making the choice not to. You have to wonder if it serves a purpose or is our government so broken they can't do anything.

      As for Bachmann I noticed she didn't mind taking federal funding to try and cure homosexuals at her husbands conversion clinic but the federal government can't be bothered with stopping child sex abuse? I guess because it doesn't pay Bachmann.

      David was awesome today and yes, I still miss Tim.

      You Take Care as well my Friend,

      I think we all can agree we miss Tim Russert he was a classic but David Gregory did a really good job trying to fill his shoes today.

      Thanks for the read and comment.

      All My Best,

      Nice work Friend.

      I am a Debbie Wasserman Schultz fan, and she was weak. She kept trying to get around the question, and then she finally admitted to why Obama had to spend so much. She should had said that in the first place. LOL. She has not really been on her A game whenever she seems to have to defend things directly dealing with Obama. That is not cool.

      Bachmann, Oh, Bachmann!!! Hum, she does not believe the federal government should do anything to help with sexual abuse? The states should only do something? OMG.

      I learned in Criminal Justice 101 about a case of a young boy being abused -- not sexually -- by relatives. Still, there were no laws to help him -- this was the late 1800s -- so they had to look at laws on the books which helped animals. I believe horses.

      No I am not making this up. I remember being way to shocked and disgusted as I tried to write a brief on it.

      I thought David was great today also, and still -- like you -- I miss Tim Russert ....

      Again, good post.

      Take Care my Friend,
