The critics have blasted them all season, but Sunday night the Patriots defense proved that they really are better than people think.

@kfpeters The one to watch for? The MVP presser the next day, if TB wins. That will be peak awkward.

@kfpeters I was wondering about this. I know in year's past it's been more to Kraft & Belichick & not so much the QB.

@BottomLineWMCX Hi Bottom Line. This won't have any impact on final score. To me, just a fun fact to pass along. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Thing is, people like Bachmann are not fringe members of the Republican Party. They command a large enough base in the Party to run for President. Aren't there any prominent Republicans with the guts to condemn this sort of speech?

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/25/michele-bachmann-gay-marriage_n_5621344.html
    (audio an be found here: http://www.rightwingwatch.org/conte...t-adults-freely-prey-little-children-sexually)

    "They want to abolish age of consent laws, which means children would, we would do away with statutory rape laws so that adults will be able to freely prey on little children sexually. That's the deviance that we're seeing embraced in our culture today."

    -- Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), quoted by the Huffington Post, on what the gay community really wants.

    This made me think of Dan Quayle's famous quote: "What a terrible thing to have lost one's mind. Or not to have a mind at all. How true that is."- Vice President Dan Quayle

    Does Michele Bachmann still actually command enough support to make a run for President? I consider her to be in the Huckabee league of Publand, or am I wrong?

    Huckabee I'd say is alot more popular than Bachman. Bachman is the epitome of fringe imo.

    Bachman / Palin ... interchangeable foghorns.

    In other threads we speak of terrorism and the profits that come of it to some.

    People like Bachman and Palin are different kinds of terrorists.
    They use the media to speak crap and profit from it ... a form of verbal terrorism.
    However ... it's free speech ... I just wish people would stop throwing money their way.
    In a perfect world money would be thrown the way of intelligent people who speak of real solutions for the countries issues. Speaking crap is unfortunately more profitable.

    Is anybody doing this? I'm honestly asking. Did she completely make this up, or are there people attempting to do away with "age of consent laws"?

    Yes there are (some) 'progressive' people looking to abolish age of consent in GB and some n America.

    Bachmann can be a poor spokesperson but is correct in this case

    I was thinking the exact same thing. The left may not enjoy being called out, but that does nothing to change the fact that her comment is correct.

    Any liberal caught messing with and dragging children into their world of sexually perverted disgusting bullshit should be manually infected with The Ebola Virus then put in a cage to rot.

    Someone suggested it in Great Britian....no one is agreeing with him.

    http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/443623/Anger-at-calls-to-lower-age-of-consent-to-15

    Contrary to what 13 says here, I can find nothing of the sort in America.

    Let's not forget that the federal age of consent in the United States is 16 but that only concerns instances which cross state lines - otherwise it is decided on a state basis and many statess are higher at 17 and 18. However, in some states (such as Texas) someone as young as 14 can consent, legally, to having sex with someone under18.

    That's just stupid. Bachmann was talking about the "gay community," not some fringe segment, which is what makes her comments so offensive. Those fringe segments, are both straight and gay and don't represent any political ideology.

    In fact, what political groups are most likely to oppose age of consent laws? The libertarians and originalist Constitutionalists. So, maybe where there are people who identify as both Tea Party and libertarian, if we apply the Bachmann standard, we can say those people would do away with statutory rape and, of course, bring back racial discrimination.

    Perhap Bachmann was referring to the pedophile who was the rand MArshal at the SF Gay Pride parade, which Pelosi participated in.

    Yes indeed some academics in GB are starting to push for the next defined 'freedom'. Of course 50 years ago redefining marriage as something other than what it had been through human history would have seemed far fetched and something that few would support publicly.

    The left is the left.

    I have known dozens of gays and lesbians and I have not once heard any of them advocate for abolishing age of consent laws. Anecdotal, yes.....but still, not a single comment in that regard.

    So now you've changed your tune from "Yes there are (some) 'progressive' people looking to abolish age of consent in GB and some n America. Bachmann can be a poor spokesperson but is correct in this case," to "perhaps Bachmann was referring to...."

    In other words, you made up your first statement and you have zero knowledge of any "progressive" people in America who are seeking to lower the age of consent.

    A rose by any other name...........

    "Some academics," is actually the physician who is in change of Great Britian's Faculty of Public Health - which seems to be equivelent to our American College of Physicians - a community of internal medicine specialists and subspecialists.

    Doctors are not "academics," nor are they necessarily leftists - in fact, if we are to believe everything you've ever said about them hating Obamacare - most of them are not.
