Quote from: Lovely Bones on March 03, 2012, 08:53:49 AMI have to disagree, b_dubb. She had already put herself out there in the "victim role," claiming that she and her friends would have to work "a whole summer" to pay for their birth control.Waaaahhhh!
Quote from: High Strangeness on March 03, 2012, 09:35:19 AMJust another attempt to normalize feminine unaccountability
Quote from: b_dubb on March 03, 2012, 09:26:20 AMmy point is this: rush pulls these STUNTS to get attention. to inject his name into the public discourse. by doing these STUNTS he further polarizes the issues. he's furthering his own career at the expense of the quality of public discourse.
Quote from: Lovely Bones on March 03, 2012, 08:50:39 AMI don't see the little old ladies from her senior living facility getting any congressional time.
Quote from: b_dubb on March 03, 2012, 07:51:47 AMRush has a career because he makes these over the top remarks. He joins himself to the discussion. Which does nothing but muddy the water. The woman's remarks were ridiculous and stupid. Calling her a 'slut' was a publicity stunt for Rush. And by doing so he changed the context and made her seem like a victim. Which further serves to polarize discourse. A reasonable response would havUe been to point out how stupid her ideas were, call her a child and say if you can get into law school you can buy your own damn birth control.
Quote from: b_dubb on March 03, 2012, 09:47:03 AMyou want to make women accountable? but not radio hosts? rush shouldn't be accountable for his personal attacks made against private citizens?
Quote from: Frys Girl on March 03, 2012, 11:28:43 AMHere's why comments like this piss me off: Rush is a private citizen with a successful radio program which he developed himself. If he wants to call a woman a slut, he can. This is what we have in America. He's not a priest and he's free to make this judgment. He didn't cross any boundary, not professionally anyway.
Quote from: Frys Girl on March 03, 2012, 11:28:43 AMWhat shocks me is the President getting involved. How cheap. Just to get the female votes? If I can't pay for my birth friggin control, I'd make the a$$holes who want to sleep with me pay for it. Are women this fucking desperate and dumb in America in 2012? This woman made a fool of herself and many women by using the public and press' time to voice this. We have serious problems in America, and this isn't one of them.
Quote from: Frys Girl on March 03, 2012, 11:28:43 AMI actually don't think Rush muddied anything. He did the right thing. If a woman wants money to have sex, there are options. If you don't like his humor or it bothers you, as with Noory, DO NOT LISTEN!
Quote from: Frys Girl on March 03, 2012, 11:33:07 AMAccountable how? For what?! He didn't do anything wrong.
Quote from: b_dubb on March 03, 2012, 11:37:09 AMhe called a woman a slut and prostitute. that's slander
Quote from: Frys Girl on March 03, 2012, 11:46:06 AMWrong. He did not say that. He said that a person who asks for money to have sex is a prostitute. He said that she's having so much sex that she needs us to pay for it. He said that this is as if she's a prostitute. LOL. slander.
Quote from: b_dubb on March 03, 2012, 04:12:00 PMnope. he called her a slut and a prostitute. he tried to retract the slut remark and called her 'round heeled' which is another way of calling someone a slut. i went back and listened to the broadcast. he said it.http://youtu.be/LN3zL2qpTDA
Quote from: Ben Shockley on March 04, 2012, 02:23:26 AMDo you males know that "birth control pills" are a hormone treatment which are indicated for various non-reproductive issues?Do you know that a main point of Ms. Fluke's testimony was to be about a friend of hers who had needed the pills for the hormone effect, due to an ovarian condition-- and that for lack of the pills (for the hormones only) ended up losing an ovary (which requires major surgery, which costs a lot of money-- for you fiscal hawks)...?I won't even recount all the people that the Republican party has alienated over the last 30-40 years. But-- honest to god-- do they REALLY think that alienating women is a winning strategy?

Quote from: Michael Vandeven on March 04, 2012, 03:11:53 AM...your entire premise is flawed ...
Quote from: Ben Shockley on March 04, 2012, 03:18:34 AM"FREE OF CHARGE" here meaning requiring private for-profit insurance companies to include the coverage in their for-profit premiums, right? Because that = "free," right?
Quote from: HAL 9000 on March 04, 2012, 03:51:27 AMUnder what Constitutional authority does Congress, or more importantly, unelected bureaucrats from a Federal agency, have the right to interfere in private contract law, mandating what private individuals and companies must provide, at no "cost" to the end-user?
Quote from: HAL 9000 on March 04, 2012, 03:51:27 AM...I would argue the Federal government has no Constitutional authority to interfere in private contract law, i.e. free individuals entering into private agreements, without coercion for or by the government.
Quote from: Ben Shockley on March 04, 2012, 04:14:43 AMI trust that you have been railing against your state government, if they, like most of them, mandate that you buy car insurance?
Quote from: slipstream on March 04, 2012, 05:40:43 AMThe government doesn't require that I buy a car....
Quote from: b_dubb on March 03, 2012, 09:26:20 AMyou disagree that her remarks were ridiculous and stupid?

Quote from: stevesh on March 03, 2012, 11:03:39 AMNever say never. Contact Pelosi's office, and maybe she'll have one of her staff write another whiny press conference speech that someone from your Mom's facility can go to Capitol Hill and read, the way she did for that stoogette from Georgetown Law.
Quote from: b_dubb on March 03, 2012, 11:36:35 AMhe called a woman a slut and a prostitute. that's slander.the President called her because she had been attacked in the national media by a very public figure. Limbaugh is not a private citizen. he is host on a nationally syndicated talk show
