Paul, please define the words slut and prostitute and compare/contrast them to a woman who wants to be paid for sex.

This will cost Rush a 7 figure sum to go away.

I shouldn't be surprised that no elected Republican is calling out Rush for calling women who get their birth control covered by an employer sluts and whores, but I do find it sad.

If its easier to make this about Wolf, so be it, I guess it's easier for you then addressing how f'd up Rush is.

I wish Limbaugh would say something about me so I can sue the crap out of him. He will definitely take it in the shorts on this one. Had he not directly named the girl and then called her a prostitute, he might have been alright, but this sure was something.

I don't think she should count her million bucks quite yet. Defamation cases are notoriously hard to win.

Well if writting on a message board read by a couple of hundred people that someone was fired from WSPD when they weren't gets you a lawyer in your face, I would think calling a woman a slut and prostitute to millions of listeners for something she didn't even say should get you in a bit more trouble.

Yeah, defamation is tough to prove in court, but that is not what I meant. This will never see the inside of a courthouse - except for the initial filing. It has settlement written all over it.

Liberal talk show host Ed Schultz got into a bit of trouble last year for calling conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham a ‘right-wing slut’ He offered an on-the-air apology and was taken off the air (unpaid) for one week. http://www.politico.com/blogs/onmedia/0511/MSNBC_suspends_Schultz_for_calling_Ingraham_a_slut.html

There is no such thing as a "high moral ground", morality is a personal issue. No such thing as nationally mandated morals, well at least their shouldn't be.

No need to be euphemistic in describing a bottom feeder like Rush, he is a puppet for the machine and he will blab whatever his masters tell him too.

I loathe Rush with every fiber of my being, but he is kind of on to something here. How the hell can a woman spend $3,000 ($1,000 a year x 3 years) on contraception? Even assuming condoms cost a dollar a piece, which they don't, that's three thousand condoms to be used over three years or 2.7 per day. If you need that many condoms, whether you are a man or woman, you might actually be a slut.

DBW - Rush doesn't have masters, he is one when it comes to the conservative establishment. Do conservative women who take birth control consider themselves sluts and prostitutes?

Ace – couple of things. The woman who Rush called a slut wasn’t even talking about herself, but a friend who needs birth control medicine for another medical condition. A women’s access to birth control is not the same thing a condoms.

First of all, since when aren't rubbers the same thing as any other form of contraception? Because mens' reproductive rights are second class rights? Why didn't the friend of the friend go to planned parenthood? Couldn't that place provide birth control/other medications? And by buying rubbers by the gross, more money could be saved. I disagree with Ace_Face about Ms. Fluke possibly being a slut, or prostitute. I think she could be referred to as "highly recommended" though.

OK, after reading her testimony, I see that she seemed to focus on the occasional medical necessity of contraceptives angle, which I agree should be covered on a doctor's recommendation. But I have never heard of contraception costing $1,000 a year. It is also clear from her testimony that she believes that contraception should be covered for ALL students:

"“Without insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school. For a lot of students who, like me, are on public interest scholarships, that’s practically an entire summer’s salary. 40% of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us that they struggle financially as a result of this policy.

“One told us about how embarrassed and just powerless she felt when she was standing at the pharmacy counter and learned for the first time that contraception was not covered on her insurance and she had to turn and walk away because she couldn’t afford that prescription. Women like her have no choice but to go without contraception."

40% struggle because Georgetown doesn't cover birth control? Really? There is absolutely no way they can afford $83 a month when not having birth control would have major health consequences? I don't believe it.

Listen, I am a liberal on these healthcare issues. I believe that America would be better off with a single payer system. But I also believe that private institutions have the right to have crappy health insurance if they so choose. Whether it is for religious reasons or for financial ones, the government shouldn't be involved in mandating what kind of insurance an organization provides.

posted by Ace_Face on Mar 02, 2012 at 05:10:02 pm     #  

What you are saying ace is that private institutions (even tax exempt or tax supported) can choose to offer medical coverage at all?

Why no outrage over medical coverage of Viagra?

Insurance will pay for men to get boners (Viagra/Cialis, penis pumps, and even penile implants), but it won't pay to keep the women they use their boners on from getting pregnant... but it will pay tons more for pre- and post-natal care.

Insurance won't pay for women to get "The Pill" in order to avoid painful menstruation and from getting ovarian cysts, but it will pay for men to artificially get a stiffy.

I'd say the solution here is for all women to shut out the Republican assholes who are anti-birth control, but that wouldn't solve anything, because hey, the men spouting this crap are all self-loathing closet-cases. That's why they're all anti-gay too - they are too chickenshit to come out, and they keep hoping they can pray away the gay vs. accepting that their God person made them that way.

Don't worry, this whole thing with Limbaugh is because he's gotta pay out of pocket for his drugs after that whole doctor-shopping for OxyContin thing - and any doctor writing him a Rx comes under the microscope. Plus with the TSA, he can't get on his plane to the Dominican Republic and get some boy-love and illegal meds.

If you need that many condoms, whether you are a man or woman, you might actually be a slut.

Depending on the particular brand/formulation, "The Pill" can easily cost $50 or more per month, so $80 per month for some non-generic "The Pill" in order to actually have a regular period and not get ovarian cysts and all sorts of other complications is easily understandable, if you're not a fucking moron Republican conservative asshole who bothers to learn more about female reproductive health than "penis goes in this hole" or whatever you gather from the farm animals fucking (or in some cases, from fucking farm animals, for those really hick Republicans).

Of course, you'd think having an actual MEDICALLY NECESSARY REASON for being on "The Pill" other than contraceptive use would be covered by insurance, but noooooooo, many employers and insurers don't believe that it's anything other than "prevent babby from being formed" pills.

Of course, they'll cover Viagra and Cialis, which are first and foremost "INSTANT BONER" (or is that Boehner?) pills, because it's somehow medically necessary to get a hard-on (even if you're NOT out to spawn some kids).

TL;DR: THE PILL IS NOT JUST FOR FREEDOM OF FUCKING WITHOUT GETTING PREGNANT, YOU MORONS! IT'S ALSO MEDICATION TO PREVENT A WHOLE HOST OF FEMALE PROBLEMS, UNLIKE BONER PILLS WHICH SERVE ONLY ONE PURPOSE.

I have a problem with that, SensorG. I don't think aphrodisiacs like viagra are restricted to men, the ladies are quite fond of it as well. It's covered for the Goose, but not for the Gander? What's fair about that? Where I do have more of a problem is, when it's handed out free in prisons.

posted by Wulf on Mar 02, 2012 at 08:51:36 pm     #  

Also, I bet these places cover heartburn/acid reflux/cholesterol meds for the fat fucks who pig out... how about we just cut off coverage for that shit and tell the fatties to either eat right or take some Tums and get their asses on a treadmill? Is that fair? If women have to pay full price in order to not spend a week bleeding and doubled over with cramps, then the fat fucks like Limbaugh can pay full price for their cholesterol and acid reflux and whatever else meds. Deal?

Prisons are also handing out tons of costly psychiatric meds, and not just "to keep the inmates sedated" either. I'd suggest you go look at the studies done on how many people are in prison because they're mentally ill. There's probably lots of people in there who would have been normal functional members of society if they actually had health care and medication that caught the schizophrenia, depression, or whatever else in time before they started hearing voices or whatever and killed people. And that's not counting the minor offenders in for smoking pot for medicinal purposes... and I'd rather have people be on pot and fucking mellowed out with some finer control of their dose than some of the prescription Xanax-y shit that's more addictive and the same quantity in each pill. Don't forget that Adderall and Ritalin for ADD/ADHD are brothers to meth. Then we have the "medicinal alcohol" users who are in for DUI and other stupid, horrible stuff they did while drunk. Too bad all these people can't afford regular doctor visits, prescription medications, and lab tests, else they might actually be productive members of society!

Phew. Take a deep breath, AC. Personally, I agree with most everything you argued, but think your case would be better stated were it not argued in the same spirit and with the same vitriol as the TP-types. Rational thought like yours needs to be more broadly represented. Don't cut off your nose to spite your face by writing like those foam-at-the-mouth, name-calling right wingers. Just a suggestion.

If you were serious I suggest you take look through the old political threads to see AC's usual diatribes. He was very subdued here, in comparison.

While you are taking a look can you please point out all those terrible foam-at-the-mouth TP postings that you referred to? I think you'll find that AC (bless his heart) is the most rabid name caller that posts here.

AC, that's not a knock. You make things very interesting!

If rationalism worked with the Teabaggers, there wouldn't be Teabaggers. Better to use their own crap against them and hope the irony of doing so won't be lost on the moderates/fence-sitters.

If Paul and the others on the left were really worried about women being called names they would have posted about these comments-
Ed Schultz said on his radio show that Sarah Palin set off a “bimbo alert.”

Keith Olbermann has said that conservative commentator S.E. Cupp should have been aborted by her parents, apparently because he finds her having opinions offensive. He called Michelle Malkin a “mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick.” He found it newsworthy to discuss Carrie Prejean’s breasts on his MSNBC show. His solution for dealing with Hillary Clinton, who he thought should drop out of the presidential race, was to find “somebody who can take her into a room and only he comes out.”

Matt Taibbi wrote on his blog in 2009, “When I read [Malkin’s] stuff, I imagine her narrating her text, book-on-tape style, with a big, hairy set of balls in her mouth.” In a Rolling Stone article about Secretary of State Clinton, he referred to her “flabby arms.” When feminist writer Erica Jong criticized him for it, he responded by referring to Jong as an “800-year old sex novelist.” (Jong is almost 70, which apparently makes her an irrelevant human being.) In Taibbi’s profile of Congresswoman and presidential candidate Michele Bachmann he labeled her “batshit crazy.

Chris Matthews has also called Clinton “witchy,” “anti-male,” and “uppity” and once claimed she won her Senate seat only because her “husband messed around.”

Maher has called Palin a “dumb twat” and dropped the C-word in describing the former Alaska governor. He called Palin and Congresswoman Bachmann “boobs” and “two bimbos.

Maher said of a woman who was harassed while breast-feeding at an Applebee’s, “Don't show me your tits!

Oddly enough it's a liberal woman who points all this out in her column http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/03/04/rush-limbaugh-s-apology

ProFlowers, mortgage lender Quicken Loans, mattress retailers Sleep Train and Sleep Number, software maker Citrix Systems Inc., online data backup service provider Carbonite and the online legal document services company LegalZoom also left Limbaugh’s roster of advertisers.

What is it with mattress retailers supporting conservative talk radio? I can't figure it out. How is marketing beds to a pile of old folks who seemingly never sleep and certainly don't get up to any fun in their beds (but have to control what other people do in theirs) making any money for them?
