Excerpt: The young lady who challenged Bachmann is the prototype for Americans of any age who understand that America and its Constitution have grown and evolved into a country that affords equal rights to every citizen regardless of race, religion or sexual preference. Whether or not Bachmann ever debates the young girl or anyone else for that matter is not at issue, and based on her stupidity and profundity for fallacious statements, she would be ill-advised to expose her ignorance to an audience of critical thinkers; or graduates of the 8th grade. America does not need the likes of Michele Bachmann or her ridiculously stupid supporters, but because the Constitution really guarantees equal rights to even the stupidest citizen, they can continue their idiot assertions without penalty. It is too bad that Bachmann’s stupid supporters are not willing to extend the same freedoms to a 16-year-old child and it explains their violent-laden threats, but it certainly does not excuse them.
Bradlee Dean is an anti-gay activist who hasn't cut his hair in a decade. He has a tattoo of Abraham sacrificing Isaac on his forearm. Bachmann has raised money for his traveling youth ministry in the past and he'll appear at a big Tea Party confab in the fall that she is affiliated with. He delivers faith-based diatribes at public schools in his home state of MN. He believes that homosexuality is "unconstitutional." He also blames gays for the Holocaust, goes on about "molesting," and launches attacks on Congressman Keith Ellison routinely. (more at link - truly bizarre)
MN has the highest incidence of search engine visits for the word "hipster." It is also the most literate, the most gay-friendly, the most tolerant, the most peaceful, the most bike friendly, the most happy, as per other surveys.

My name is Amy Myers. I am a Cherry Hill, New Jersey sophomore attending Cherry Hill High School East. As a typical high school student, I have found quite a few of your statements regarding The Constitution of the United States, the quality of public school education and general U.S. civics matters to be factually incorrect, inaccurately applied or grossly distorted. The frequency and scope of these comments prompted me to write this letter.
Though I am not in your home district, or even your home state, you are a United States Representative of some prominence who is subject to national media coverage. News outlets and websites across this country profile your causes and viewpoints on a regular basis. As one of a handful of women in Congress, you hold a distinct privilege and responsibility to better represent your gender nationally. The statements you make help to serve an injustice to not only the position of Congresswoman, but women everywhere. Though politically expedient, incorrect comments cast a shadow on your person and by unfortunate proxy, both your supporters and detractors alike often generalize this shadow to women as a whole.
Rep. Bachmann, the frequent inability you have shown to accurately and factually present even the most basic information about the United States led me to submit the follow challenge, pitting my public education against your advanced legal education:
I, Amy Myers, do hereby challenge Representative Michele Bachmann to a Public Forum Debate and/or Fact Test on The Constitution of the United States, United States History and United States Civics.
Hopefully, we will be able to meet for such an event, as it would prove to be enlightening.
The "Purple Rain" star owns 20 acres of land in Chanhassen, Minnesota, where one of his homes used to be until it was torn down six years ago. According to the Minneapolis' StarTribune, the land fell into foreclosure when Prince allegedly failed to keep up with mortgage payments. The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Co. then made arrangements with the local Carver County Sheriff's Office to schedule a May 13th auction to sell off the property in order to pay the alleged $368,000 mortgage bill. A foreclosure notice was reportedly published in a local newspaper
