Limbaugh’s vile attack on a student who dared to speak up

Wow. This is true slime.

Some of you may recall Sandra Fluke, a student at Georgetown University and former head of Georgetown Law Students for Reproductive Justice, who was barred by House Republicans from offering a woman’s perspective at a male-dominated hearing on the Obama administration’s contraception rule.

-2

Later, House Democrats set up their own hearing in which Fluke was the star witness. Her full prepared testimony can be found here, but as the AP reported it:

“Fluke, a third-year law student, said that Georgetown Law, a Jesuit institution, does not provide contraception coverage in its student health plan and that contraception can cost a woman more than $3,000 during law school. She spoke of a friend who had an ovary removed because the insurance company wouldn’t cover the prescription birth control she needed to stop the growth of cysts.”

Think what you will of the issue or of Fluke’s testimony. Nothing the young woman said or did earned her this, from Rush Limbaugh:

“What does it say about the college coed Susan [sic] Fluke, who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex.

“She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex. What does that make us? We’re the pimps.

“The johns, that’s right. We would be the johns — no! We’re not the johns. Well — yeah, that’s right. Pimp’s not the right word.

“OK, so, she’s not a slut. She’s round-heeled. I take it back.”

I’ve shied away from accusations that this issue is being driven on the right by misogyny, because in many cases it’s not. But clearly, in many other cases that’s exactly what’s driving it. Limbaugh’s attack is a vicious attempt to frighten and intimidate women into going silent on the issue, and the message is intended not merely for Fluke but for women in general. Limbaugh is a frightened little bully attempting to keep women in their place, and in that regard is no different than the mullahs of Afghanistan who condemn non-virgin women to a stoning.

It is a despicable, and it tells you a lot about the current state of affairs in our nation that someone with a podium as grand and lucrative as Limbaugh’s can spout such bile about a young woman whom he has never met, and do so without consequence.

Agree w/your comments on Limbaugh wholeheartedly but disagree with her position that taxpayers, her employers or anybody else should have to pick up that tab. If she wants to find out who should pay, I suggest she look in the mirror, get a separate policy, ask mommy or daddy or at least grow up and stop whining. There is nothing in the billof rights or the constitution about “free” contraception.

Limbaugh was criticizing the left’s characteristic of using a “tool{” to illustrate a non-issue. He has done it before, and will do it again, and I am pleased to see him expose the whiny tactic of our leftist brethren.

Here, the left has manufactured a phony issue, the “threat” to take away contraception. This at a time that Obama proclaims his wish to have the taxpayer subsidize recreational activities, such as the proposal that contraceptives be “free” (as if nobody will actually wind up paying for them.)

And unemployment continues at 8+%.

Rush’s 24-year Excrement in Broadcasting project inspires other men to do similar things.

An entire float, to ride past the drunken throngs, probably carrying drunken people, devoted to smearing a woman because her newspaper thought a tax loophole was unfair.

Erin May Fitzgerald, not wanting to see her stepmother degraded once again, did something she now admits was a mistake (and for which she has apologized). She tried to cut down and tear the banners off the side of the float.

Seeing Fitzgerald, Stewart, classy as ever, first hit her with a jello shot from on high. Then the 6′4″ 240-pound Stewart climbed off the float and, apparently, punched Fitzgerald in the face, knocking her unconscious. Being a 53 year-old doctor, you might think he’d realize his mistake and then help her. Or at least be a coward and run. No, because it seems that Stewart is a special kind of d##khead. He stood over Fitzgerald and took photos of her

In a larger scale, it seems a lot of people are really beginning to believe they are entitled to other peoples money to subsidize their lifestyles and believe that gov’t should be giving it to them and that more gov’t is the solution to every problem large or small they have instead of having a little individual responsibility.

I am a fan of Rush and try to listen to him everyday. I’m sure that fits the sterotype some may have of me. Rush sometimes crosses the line when overely passionate of what he speaks and in this case calling the girl a slut/prostitute is over the line.

The root of his passion is shared on the right – we are tired of the Left constantly trying to construct freebees on the taxpayers. Free contraceptives through insurance is just that. There is no free lunch, policy holders are paying for the contraceptives. And yes, viagra should not be free either.

Rush should not be given a free pass on his remarks, however, the person responsible for putting the girl in front of congress is also guilty. To throw a college student out for criticisim on such a hot topic may not be as bad as what Rush did, but it’s a close second.

Excellent piece, Jay. Thank you for taking a stand on this. I think this part about sums it up:

Limbaugh is a frightened little bully attempting to keep women in their place, and in that regard is no different than the mullahs of Afghanistan who condemn non-virgin women to a stoning.

As I have indicated before, CONTROL and PUNISHMENT. CONTROL of the government is required, so that even if you are within the bounds of the law, if the people who want to be in control have their way, they can still PUNISH you somehow. Example: legal shame and humiliation hurdles to get a legal procedure. Example: legal discrimination if you have a child while not married.

This is what they want – to silence and punish women, legally. And don’t think they will stop with women. Anyone who is not an old white wealthy land owner will eventually get the shaft if they have their way.

2) You are the VERY SAME A-HOLES who immediately blame the woman for getting pregnant “well, she should have been on birth control … she should have been on the pill … she should have taken personal responsibility” – then you’re the first ones who call women sluts for trying to do that very thing.

More on-topic, enlightened commentary from prominent, respectable conservative punditry I simply must share with my fellow Bookmaniacs:

One successful foray ended on the guest bed of a high school friend’s parents, with a girl who resembled a chunkier Reese Witherspoon drunkenly masticating my neck and cheeks. It had taken some time to reach this point–”Do most Harvard guys take so long to get what they want?” she had asked, pushing her tongue into my mouth. I wasn’t sure what to say, but then I wasn’t sure this was what I wanted. My throat was dry from too much vodka, and her breasts, spilling out of pink pajamas, threatened my ability to. I was supposed to be excited, but I was bored and somewhat disgusted with myself, with her, with the whole business… and then whatever residual enthusiasm I felt for the venture dissipated, with shocking speed, as she nibbled at my ear and whispered–”You know, I’m on the pill…”

JAY,

IMO, the worst of the worst of these entertainment talkingheads are Rush Limbaugh, John Gibson, BIGED, and Thom Hartmann the latter at least not being personally judgemental however his general attacks on any who don’t agree with his socialist agenda are distasteful….

We must remember that in this age, it’s extremes that sell airtime, newspapers and super PACs/campaign donors. I’m glad you brought this up…

I concur with Bertrand Russell on the religion thingy…aside from developing the calendar and charting moon’s orbit, it poisons everything it touches but the most deplorable church positon that is pushed on it’s masses is the sex thing.

There is a big difference between women’s rights and free contraception.

And there’s a big difference between “free contraception” and contraceptive coverage included in a health policy that someone — in this case, the student — pays for.
____________________________

The purpose of insurance is to spread risk. Premiums are adjusted based on payouts. Free contraceptives drive up cost that is passed to all under the group policy including the employer. People who have no need for contraceptives are paying for others to use them. It’s a nice benefit, free contraceptives, but our country is at the end of providing such things.

The Left is trying to group a contraceptive with drugs. Contraceptives are electives except perhaps in the case of a health problem where the contraceptive is the proper treatment. Contraceptives and ED drugs should be paid completely out of one’s pocket. And don’t give me the reply that students don’t have any money. I could care less. They are going down their chosen path. They should be overjoyed to be in college.

If you can’t afford birth control, then you damn sure can’t afford a child. That is all this is, looking for another hand out, and they know the democratic party is there to give it to them.

I do like how Limbaugh pisses off all the libs though. Maybe his choice of words were a little rough, but I have to agree with Rush. Here is some chick going to law school at Georgetown, which is one of the more expensive universities in the country, and she doesn’t think she should have to pay for her own birth control? What a whack case this chick is. I smell crazy all over this beyotch.

Well, realizing I’m coming in a bit late, but USinUK’s first comments were probably right on the money. I can easily see how it could cost that much. Some types of birth control pills aren’t cheap, and some women can’t take just any type of birth control pill. Without insurance, my wife’s pills would cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,000 a year. On an aside, if she is a 3L, that means she graduates in May. Which means she could take and pass the bar sometime this summer if she worked really hard at it. Wonder just how long it will take her to put that law degree to work and pay off her student loans with Rush’s money? I know if someone went on the air and called my wife a whore, that’s exactly what we would be doing.

Limbaugh appears to have gone from calculating what will play with his audience and further enrich him to saying what he really thinks, regardless of the financial reward. And he does so without any concern for repercussions, as most of his listeners take seriously whatever he says.

One’s despicable, the others are to be pitied.

That’s so much better than ‘when you’re in a hole, stop digging.”

Limbaugh’s main point in this commentary was that there was so much sex going on at Georgetown University Law School that 4 in 10 women would have to spend up to 3K/yr on birth control devices just to keep up. And that at the expense of the taxpayer. He stated, and I listened to every word of this commentary, that if they were going to get laid that much, then the taxpayer should not be responsible for the bill. Guess that makes the ladies at Georgetown a little ahead of the curve, wouldn’t you say? Most insurance plans cover only a very limited number of ED drugs/mo for males. And that’s sure as hell no 3K. So get off your high horse, Bookman. This young lady was denied the privilege of speaking at the original committee hearing because the subject of contraception was not what the committee was convened for. She needed a box to stand on and wanted a forum to make her point. The fact that the Democrats would convene a hearing just for her is grandstanding at its best/worst. They are good at that.

I’m a bit left of center myself, especially on most economic issues. I’m not a fan of abortion, but I don’t think it should be illegal. I think the administration blundered on this one, though. As I understand it, there is no legal requirement for any employer or school to actually offer medical insurance. So the end result will likely be that entities objecting to coverage of certain medications or procedures will simply drop coverage for everyone. I can see some conservative institutions doing just that, if for no other reason than to provide Republicans with a sound bite for attack ads in October-November. I come from a military background (I’m still in the GA National Guard), and I tend to approach problems from perspective of doing what it takes to accomplish the mission. Practicality is high on my list of priorities, and I have a great fondness for Macedonian solutions for Gordian impediments. But I’ll have to go with the right-wingers on this one.

Limbaugh may have been absurd to prove his point but he often does that. Regardless of whether he is a nice guy or not, what he says is true about this. She wants everyone else to pay for her $3000/year contraception.

Of course you don’t see it but it’s a bit telling that she isn’t asking for special coverage when a female is prone to cysts. She asking for blanket contraception that she can’t afford for everyone just in case there is a female who is prone to cysts. An unnecessary expense which can be free if people simply reduce the distance between their knee caps until they can afford it.

Just like elective surgery isn’t covered; elective contraception shouldn’t be. If a procedure becomes medically necessary…..cover it.

First of all, the left did NOT start this debate. Think otherwise? Prove it. And labeling all non-Fox media outlets as “liberal” will not make your case, just so you know.

This whole thing started with Personhood USA, pressing years ago to define a zygote as a person, with a website that specifically said (until they decided it wouldn’t help their case) that they were against contraception too.

Finally, it doesn’t matter if Santorum says he would not push that particular aspect of his beliefs. I don’t believe him. In my view and opinion, he only said that so people like you, who are willing to give all conservatives the benefit of the doubt, would vote for him.

kayaker: that if they were going to get laid that much, then the taxpayer should not be responsible for the bill.

Should the taxpayer be responsible for footing the bill associated with helping make damn sure a child is born if she gets pregnant? How much enforcement money are you willing to put into that? And don’t worry, I already know you do not support putting forth any taxpayer money to help children survive and thrive AFTER they are born, so I won’t ask you a question related to that.

Here is some chick going to law school at Georgetown, which is one of the more expensive universities in the country, and she doesn’t think she should have to pay for her own birth control?

Saw a stat two days ago about Harvard. Anyone whose parents make under $180K automatically gets financial aid to go there that covers about 90% of the costs. It’s all beside the point, but I thought it was an interesting fact to share.

I would say that if these women are having that much sex, then their heels should assume a rather rounded look. BTW, a 28 tablet Orthonovum prescription costs about 35 dollars. That’s about 420/yr. Perhaps they are covering the condom bills as well or who knows, with the number of abortions performed in this country, perhaps they are not using them at all.

…”the current state of affairs in our nation that someone with a podium” is exactly what you, Jay Bookman and Mike Luckovich, are are doing as well. It’s not just Rush Limbaugh.

For years you two have vilified, demeaned, and ridiculed our past president and current GOP candidates with insulting literary essays and illustrations. Hypocrisy at its best and you guys don’t even know you are doing it, but this is typical of the Democrat Party. I’m here to call you out along with your chirpy little peanut gallery that goes along with your shenanigans..

Little Miss Fluke is the mirror image of the Democrat Party and a component of the Occupy types. She represents the entitlement mentality that expects to be compensated by the government, insurance companies, or school systems for things that should be obtained personally. Based on the fact that she is going to Georgetown University, her parents and the parents of other students there can damn well afford such birth control expense. Outside of contraceptive medication to regulate periods or stem cystic growth, preventive measures for sexual adventure is not the responsibility of government, insurance companies, or school systems. It is an outrage that this child of higher education finds a congressional soap box to complain about unnecessary funding for birth control. An Outrage!

However, the podium of Jay Bookman provides a nice little bully bastion whereby he can come to the defense of this poor child who cries foul because she cannot get free birth control while trying to manage sex and studies at the expense of others paying for it. The Democrat Party is especially famous for demagoging issues that pertain to children or adolescence. Here we have another example of blaming a conservative voice for his objection to entitlement corruption. And here we have another example of the left hiding behind the skirts of our children.

The Republicans did not want to waste time on listening to collegiate complaints of sex and studies while it wrestled with more important economic issues. Therefore, it was your very own corrupt Nancy Pelosi who took up the banner for little Miss Fluke’s impassioned cry for “entitled” birth control give-outs. In true typical fashion, we see this hypocritical representitive of the Democrat Party from San Francisco lend her 2 cents defending the ills of society.

This is why this country is polarized and looking for new leadership. We have had enough.

I keep reading that Georgetown women are having so much sex it requires $3k for contraceptives. People! Contraceptives are the same if you have sex three times a day or once in three years.

Fighting contraception. Stopping domestic violence protections. Extending tax cuts for the wealthy, while hiking taxes on the middle class. Welcoming white supremacists to a conference, but banning gay conservatives.

The GOP has followed its extremist fringe off the deep end, leaving the rest of us back in the reality-based world befuddled. Their STRATEGISTS warned them NOT TO DO THIS, but it appears that to the GOP, radical fringe issue positions are like catnip.

In the last Republican presidential debate in Arizona, the candidates even spent several minutes discussing which of them is least in favor of allowing rape victims to have access to emergency contraception.

No, it has NOTHING to do with religious freedom, unless your definition of religious freedom is “freedom to push my religion on everyone else through government.” Sorry, but we have this thing called the FIRST AMENDMENT, as you cons often like to point out, that prohibits that.

What is the difference between paying a woman a wage, that she then uses to go and buy Birth Control if she wants, versus paying an insurance company for a group policy that includes this coverage at no increase in cost, that the same female employees then can use to get Birth Control?

Certainly not religious freedom there, if your argument is they are subsidizing it. In both cases, the fact that they employ women AT ALL and provide health insurance AT ALL is subsidizing it.

Guess they should stop hiring women. Oh wait….

Has WSB no shame or standards of decency? And my question to all the right wing haters is, are they going to admit complicity when/if President Obama is assassinated? Will they acknowledge the blood on their hands? Likewise will all of the church members that have passed along outrageous, slanderous, untrue emails about our President equally admit the blood on their hands, if such a tragic event were to come to pass?

Now, I’m not saying that sexism doesn’t exist and isn’t real. And we can’t, but we can’t throw around the word “sexist” just to stop people like me from pointing out that Michele Bachmann, now running second for the Republican presidential nomination, isn’t a dangerous nincompoop. And when I point out that Sarah Palin is a vainglorious braggart, a liar, a whiner, a professional victim, a scold, a know-it-all, a chiseler, a bully who sells patriotism like a pimp, and the leader of a strange family of inbred weirdos straight out of “The Hills Have Eyes,” that’s not sexist. I’m saying it because it’s true, not because it’s true of a woman.”–Bill Maher

About Michelle Malkin:

Olbermann: “She received death threats and hate-filled voice mails all thanks to the total mindless, morally bankrupt, knee-jerk, fascistic hatred, without which Michelle Malkin would just be a big mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it.”

Limbaugh is clearly too effing stoopid to understand that getting BC coverage isn’t JUST about contraception. There are therapeutic uses of BC as well, but when you throw the BC baby out with the OHMIGOD CONTRACEPTION bathwater, you’re proscribing a perfectly reasonable and justifiable use of a prescribable pharmaceutical.

Those of you who are trashing this young woman — I hope you never have a close female family member suffer from dysmenorrhea, from ovarian cysts or one of the other myriad of disorders and afflictions that can be treated with BC. Because the best advice and comfort you’d have for them is to go down to CVS and buy a box of Trojans. :roll:

No, because they are public figures and even back in the days of Ben Franklin, insulting public figures was a time-honored new tradition that they didn’t allow in merry old England.

I’m sorry, but you’re completely clueless on this point. That position is *not* a “total collapse of personal responsibility;” it’s actually smart business and it’s how insurance companies operate.

If you purchase dental insurance, periodic cleanings are covered, while major orthodontia is often capped at a set limit per year. Why? Because it’s cheaper to address a medical issue with prophylaxis and preventive care than it is to address it when it becomes a big problem.

Dental cleanings are cheaper than root canals.

Smoking cessation programs are cheaper than treating lung cancer.

Contraception and family planning are cheaper than covering unplanned pregnancies and adding extra covered dependents to a health plan.

If you honestly think that personal responsibility is the issue in this argument, then you don’t know an effing thing about how insurance works.

And all of you liberals are so astounded by the fact that the rhetoric is getting pretty raw when it comes to political issues. Go back and carefully read Donovan’s 9:02. He says it much better than I ever could. Liberals always get their shorts in a wad when they don’t get their way or someone disagrees with them. Like the Wall Street thugs, they take it personally when someone makes a little more money than you do, things are not always “fair” and “equal”, then they go out and make fools of themselves and Democrats encourage them to continue…. even Bozo, your president, and the ever present Queen Nancy. We’re really sorry if you are offended by the fact that Boortz calls this idiot in the WH a pimple on the butt of humanity. I think that he should have been a little more descriptive but I don’t run radio shows. If you want to be led around by a ring in your nose by an “all knowing” and ever “omnipotent” government, go ahead, but don’t expect me and lots of others like me to accept it. I don’t want the government telling me what kind of light bulbs to use, how to pack my child’s school lunch, what kind of health care insurance I must buy or generally, “doing what is right for me”. If you can’t make your own decisions, don’t blame me…… I just want no part of it, or your President. November can’t come soon enough.

Did Andrew Breitbart reap what he sowed?

Andrew Breitbart was at the center of two video controversies in recent years — one that led to the firing of an Agriculture Department employee over an edited video of what appeared to be a racist remark, and another that embarrassed the community group ACORN when workers were shown counseling actors posing as a prostitute and pimp.

Well, I won’t be participating, because I don’t think it’s appropriate to *celebrate* anyone’s death, regardless of what I think of them personally.

I don’t have anything good to say about Mr. Breitbart, but I won’t say anything bad about him, either. But I *will* say that I saw him on Cenk Uygur’s show a couple of weeks ago, and that he seemed . . . kind of disjointed in his speaking. He struck me and my wife as a little incoherent, and we noted that the host let him speak pretty much as much as he wanted to. He was on for at least 10 minutes and spoke most of that time. Others who saw that show may recall that; it might be possible to find it on YouTube and see.

Whatever was going on, I hope that he wasn’t suffering from some illness or malady, and I hope he did not suffer when he died. And I hope his family finds some peace and resolution in their time of loss.

Apparently, he wasn’t actually confronting them at all.

In addition, they indicated that the protestors didn’t really seem aware that Breitbart was shouting at them at all, and that the people who seem to be restraining Breitbart were just trying to get him to go back inside since he was more than a bit intoxicated.

Boortz will be on until noon….. then he’s followed by three hours of Limbaugh. You liberals should tune in….. even you might just learn something.

The presumptuousness of this message is amazing.

For the record, I’ve certainly spent hundreds, perhaps even thousands, of hours of my life listening to and processing harsh, nasty right wing radio, going back to the pre-Limbaugh jackasses like NYC’s Bob Grant. I mean, I’ve been commuting to work by car most of the last coupla decades, and for a long time, that was about the only political analysis to be had on the broadcast spectrum.

I am more than aware of their sleazy methodology — hang on the mute button to edit anything a dissenting voice might have to counter your stupidity; have the screeners allow in only the least-prepared “liberals” so that you can mock them occasionally; prompt your fans to repeat garbage talking points; and whatever you do, BUILD A STRAW MAN AND BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF IT EVERY SINGLE SEGMENT.

And yes, there are some left-wing dopplegangers that have been known to deploy such methodology. I’ve heard my share of straw men built and knocked down on Air America, back in the day. Part of the game. I get that.

Thing is, my time spent monitoring such aural atrocities is probably one zillion times that spent by a “Kayaker” listening to anything even remotely comparable from the left—your Randi Rhodeses, your Mike Malloys, and suchlike.

So no, I won’t be tuning in today. I might be more inclined to give Neal/Rush/Sean some more of my beautiful mind, if Kayaker and his ilk demonstrated just once that they’d taken in such progressive programming, unfiltered, for more than a minute or two at a time.

to which I replied

1) you say “oh, she should just change schools / jobs / hometowns” as if that’s an EASY thing to do – particularly if you’re a grad student. This has NOTHING to do with you as a taxpayer – this concerns HER, HER EMPLOYER and THE INSURANCE COMPANY. Your money is not involved.

2) You are the VERY SAME A-HOLES who immediately blame the woman for getting pregnant “well, she should have been on birth control … she should have been on the pill … she should have taken personal responsibility” – then you’re the first ones who call women sluts for trying to do that very thing.

If you go to a hospital, your fees there go to pay for those that didn’t pay, and therefore cover things you apparently don’t agree with. Therefore, your outrage seems manufactured.

When I heard about this last night I was fuming. Jerks like Limpball have no clue at all. What many people, especially men don’t understand is that there are several reasons for using the pill. Which is probably why it’s sometimes referred to that way. I personally used them purely for medical reasons and delayed doing so for the longest because of the “stigma” attached to them. It was a tremendous help, and I wish I had been brave enough to use them earlier. It would have prevented a lot of pain along with other issues.

Speaking of Insurance and Entitlements – I will be 65 in a few days. Applied for the mandatory Medicare and discovered they are means testing Part B. Part A is Hospital, Part B is doctor. The basic monthly charge is $99, but they look at your past year tax return to determine your adjusted gross income. There are three brackets above basic where there is an increasing premimum added to the basic $99. I don’t have a problem with it being fair, but the end result is I will be paying much more each month for medical and prescription drug coverage than before Medicare.

Max – I would typically agree with this stance, but in this case, I have issues with the fact that people see birth control pills and only feel that they’re able to be used to prevent pregnancy. My wife was put on them at a young age, not for that reason, but for other, far more serious reasons. One of which being so she could have a chance at maybe one day being able to have children. So, denying medicine that is used for more than just one thing, because you can’t agree with one of its uses is ridiculous. Also, there is a HUGE double standard where they’re supplying Viagra through their insurance policy and not birth control.

Also, not using this as an argument or a defense or anything else, just as a “hey I didn’t know that” – but who knew Georgetown was affiliated with a religious institution?

And quit your damn lying about the cost being $3,000. How anyone can grant such a bald faced damn liar credibility for such a blatant lie is mystifying.

You know we’ve gone off the deep end when Georgetown students are now complaining about not getting their birth control paid for by the taxpayers.

Oh, and about your friend who had an ovary removed because her insurance didn’t pay for the pill. ONE MORE TIME!- If you can afford a Georgetown law school education then you can pay for your freaking birth control. If it was that important the girl should have gotten a part time job during the summer and made enough money to pay for her birth control for the next 3 years.

In the words of Lewis Grizzard (a great American), “How can you say I hate women, I married four of them!

As for Rush being a bully, unfortunately, he speaks for millions of folks who have too much pent-up anger over issues they don’t understand but want to be led by someone who oversimplifies everything.

Is there waste in government? Sure. And that includes the billions of dollars down the drain and decades to produce the Osprey aircraft.

Is there waste in business? Certainly. And that includes expensive sales trips for every area of enterprise, just don’t expect me to pay for them when the insurance/financial/manufacturing company has been bailed out by the government.

I really love the way Rush and FauxNews are quick to criticize the New York Times or competing networks when it does or says something they don’t agree with, but they fall all over themselves with complaints of harsh treatment when they do something similar. The big difference is that when the Times, the major networks etc are caught in a lie or step too far over society’s lines, the perpetrator is either suspended or fired.

It doesn’t happen with conservative talking heads/networks, though in far too many instances they should have.

We all complain about the high cost of insurance and medical care, but this is where it starts, providing coverage beyond medically necessary. Just my opinion.

I deal mostly with people aging into medicare with medsupp and medavantage plans and most of my people are paying $115 a month in 2011 and 2012. Just be prepared because most likely they will hit you with $115. And then if you go the medsupp route you have to add in that and the cost of a part d drug stand alone plan which between the 2 of them usually is $165-$190 a month on top of your part B premium.

And nothing’s more costly to society than an unwanted child with no-one to care for it.

I read the first few pages and especially the page where Jay admitted that the true cost of the pill is about $50 a month or $1800 a year instead of the $3,000 that the girl charged.

In any event the idea that the girl, her friend, and others receiving a Georgetown education can’t come up with $50 a month for the pill is ludicrous. She’ll make a pile of dough after she graduates. Let the woman pay for it via a loan, plastic, or working a part time job. Not my problem.

I’m very curious as to the people who are trying to say that she claimed birth control cost $3,000 per year, as she clearly said $3,000 over the course of law school. Which is 3 years.

Irrational – On an individual basis yes, but that assumes that everyone denied birth control would not take personal responsibility and take steps on their own to prevent pregnancy. That’s a big assumption. And possibly having the baby for those that do would force them to grow up and assume some responsibility. The question remains that should the government dictate that; the market could just as easily come to either decision – if the cost of caring for the number of people becoming pregnant exceeds the cost of providing low cost contraception, then the companies will decide to offer it. It the pedulum swings the other way, then it will be the opposite and there would most likely be a mix of offerigs at differing market costs for us to choose from (or to make employers more or less desirable to us as consumers).

The witness was a prop; she made up the facts; she was a pawn of the left. Rush used strong language to make a point. Most media types and entertainers could be accused of the same. The issue is not the pills, but why one person should be compelled to pay for another’s contraception.

Just got this in my email…good news. After all equality for ALL is what we, as a nation, are all about…

As an aside, you don’t think this is the “natural Cause” that killed Breitbart, do you….

Dear Normal,

History is being made today. With Governor Martin O’Malley’s signature, marriage equality is about to become law in Maryland. Maryland will be the eighth state, plus the District of Columbia, to enact such a groundbreaking law.

This triumph comes in one of the greatest strings of victories for LGBT rights we’ve ever seen. In just three weeks, following a major court victory against Proposition 8, you’ve helped us pass marriage equality bills in Washington, New Jersey, and now Maryland.

And despite New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s heartbreaking veto, the legislature’s pro-equality vote marked a powerful moment in this years-long battle.

These victories are exhilarating, but they are not accidents. All three of these legislative gains are the result of years of working together to elect fair-minded candidates and placing organizers on the ground to build support for these bills. It’s all possible because of the unwavering activism of over a million HRC members and supporters like you.

Let’s celebrate our victories and get ready for the fights ahead. Put a point on the marriage equality map you’ve helped draw – and join thousands around the country in congratulating Maryland on this remarkable moment:

In the coming months, right-wing groups will try to derail marriage equality at the ballot box. The National Organization for Marriage is already collecting signatures in Washington and Maryland to try to undo these victories – just as they did with Proposition 8 – and they’re tapping super-rich, anonymous donors every day for more cash. We’re organizing in these states to stop them.

And another thing is becoming clear: Something is changing in America. Just eight years ago, two women would be denied a marriage license by every city clerk in America. Today, marriage equality has been enacted in eight states – and that number keeps growing. It’s all thanks to you.

Let’s show the cynics, the radicals, and the right wing how big our community is and the passion driving this movement. Send a message of support by posting your comment on the internet now.

Knowing how hard we’ve worked together makes these victories so much sweeter. And knowing who we’re fighting for – loving couples around the country, their kids, their communities – makes it that much more important.

Thank you for all that you have done, and will do, to continue winning the civil rights battle of our generation.

Sincerely,

Joe Solmonese

WASHINGTON — The Senate has defeated a Republican effort to roll back President Barack Obama’s policy on contraception insurance coverage.

The measure sponsored by Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt, a Republican, was defeated 51-48. The measure, an amendment to a pending transportation bill, would have allowed employers and insurers to opt out of portions of the president’s health care law they found morally objectionable. That would have included the law’s requirement that insurers cover the costs of birth control.

Republicans said it was a matter of freedom of religion; Democrats said it was an assault on women’s rights and could be used to cancel virtually any part of the law.

Insurance covers routine doc visits and labs. And if you need insurance get a plan with a very high deductible for major hospitalizations that includes doc visits.

Sounds like she is part of the rights revolution where everyone thinks they are entitled to something- paid for by others of course. If she is asking for all insurance to mandatorily cover birth control then what she is really asking for is for the cost to be subsidized by others who don’t need or want birth control in their policies. She’s basically just whining to get her birth control subsidized by others. A benefit grab if you will.

“How many graduate/law students do you know? Most of them, pay for everything themselves, and student loans barely cover books and tuition. No one, including her, is saying that the taxpayers should be on the hook for her birth control.”

Sorry but it took me 5 1/2 years to graduate. Why? Because I had to work 3 jobs(morning job, waited tables on the weekend, had drill once a month) and I took a limited course load sometimes as a result of my workload. You’re going to have a hard time convincing someone who had to work his way through college to have pity on someone not willing to do the same. And I did that without taking out any student loans. All I hear from this entitlement pig is gimme me gimme.

“Unless she said it somewhere else, she was just testifying to the fact that her insurance doesn’t cover it, and it is expensive and burdensome to those on a fixed income.”

Boo freaking hoo! Not my problem.

How many women do you know that got pregnant while on birth control? I know of 3 students at my son’s HIGH SCHOOL that are pregnant right now, and 2 of them were on birth control.

All I am saying is why does she feel it necessary to have the University change its policy when she can just get her own policy that does cover birth control.

Just because you do not share the same view point as I do does not mean my comments are stupid.

In order to have sex, the students feel they need contraceptives. Oral contraceptives are a few hundred dollars, condoms a few dollars each. For $3000 you get a LOT of contraceptive. If the students don’t have sex, they don’t need the contraceptives (except in rare instances). The students want taxpayers to pay for that. Therefore, we are paying for them to have sex. Limbaugh seems to have nailed it!

So much that she wants us to pay for it? If she isn’t a slut (and a leech) then what would YOU call her?

The cost of $3,000 is probably due to the fact that the pill usually cost $30/mth. That’s right $1 a day! Multiply that by the number of years she’s in school. But add up the cost of her having a child and taking care of it for at least 18 years? Or the cost of surgery to stop some of the medical issues that are addressed by using the pill. I know of one that was going to cost $4,000 and I had to pay 1/2 of that after insurance paid their part.

Seriously? How can people say that the cost of contraceptives has any bearing on how much someone is having sex? We’re talking about the pill, the ring, or whatever method girls are using. These methods are just expensive…and you men who take offense to that should keep in mind that a woman who uses birth control keeps you out of hot water when that condom breaks. Don’t act all high and mighty and try to state that only the women are out there having sex. Btw, planned parenthood also provides wellness services and contraceptives for men as well…so why the attack on women??? You boys aren’t being left out! Birth control is not just to prevent pregnancy either. It can help prevent medical issues in many women. Btw, the cost of birth control is often times solely the responsibility of the woman…maybe men should chip in more if they don’t want to become daddies at a young age. Or, we can discontinue planned parenthood funding and instead pay welfare for a mother and child for their entire lives because Daddy is too irresponsible to pay for the mistake he made and as a result the mom had to drop out of college to take care of her little one. I know this is not always the case, but many times it is.

What is vile is a 3rd year law student ON SCHOLARSHIP expecting the American taxpayer to pay for your desire and choice to have sex. I went to college…I paid my own way…I paid for my own birth control.

It’s pathetic that a young woman who is having her college tuition paid for via scholarship is so greedy that she gets put up by Pelosi to complain about it. As a 3rd year law student, I would think she would be too busy to worry about having (so much) sex as she studies at Georgetown. Under Obamacare, she is still a “child” and covered under her parent’s health care plan…why doesn’t her parent’s plan cover her birth control.

Rush said nothing inappropriate. When will the leftists stop lining up for handout after handout? Should we buy her a car to get to class because she can’t afford a car and doesn’t want to take the bus?

All colleges offer insurance to students. Some of the mandatory student fees include health insurance. It depends on how the college structures the student fees. But that is another point.

I could go with maybe restraining from the activities that cause her to purchase birth control, but that is way too easy. I could also go with if she is studying law at Georgetown, I doubt very seriously she has a problem with her budget. But that too is way too easy.

Yes, I have had to pay for my own insurance when I was a contractor. It was expensive, but my wife and I made changes to our lifestyle so we could afford that insurance. The cost of a Ferrari is also astronomical, but I don’t think the Ferrari dealership is going to change its payment policy just so I could have one. She is doing nothing but grandstanding, and trying to get her 15 minutes of fame. Someone needs to tell her to buy her own insurance if you want birth control coverage, the University doesn’t offer it to students. Sorry, sometimes in life you have to make difficult decisions, but forcing the University to raise its insurance rates on EVERY OTHER STUDENT just so she can be covered just isn’t right.

I am sure you will disagree, but that is MY opinion, and I understand yours.

There are MANY medical reasons why women take the pill. I’d prefer not to get graphic on this board since most men stick their fingers in their ears and start the la la la song when you speak of these things. Guys don’t even like to go buy “napkins” at the store so I wouldn’t expect them to fully comprehend the sheer pain and agony some women go through every month. And I”m not just talking about a little PMS. Men also don’t know the cost associated with this problem in the purchase of products. What this woman is asking for goes way beyond just allowing her to have some fun now and then.

My wife had to have some cysts removed some years ago, so believe me, I understand what you are saying. That is why I said that is ‘way too easy’. She was on the pill for the first 15 years of our marriage, but our insurance policy covered the costs.

I am going to say again, I am not opposed to having birth control covered on insurance, that is NOT my point. My point is that she wants to change a policy. That is what is wrong. This will undoubtedly change the premiums that others are paying. Now, if the school were to offer a choice of carriers that a student can select, that is different, but from what I have read and heard, that is not her goal. Lets say insurance company A has a policy that covers birth control, students who want that can select it. Insurance company B does not cover it, so the student can select it. To me, that would be a fair policy and one that everyone could agree to…I would think.

And yes, I listen to Rush. Do I agree with him 100% of the time…absolutely not. I think he was WAY out of line by attacking this person.

After reading this full post I guess you and I are on the same page–I think. It appears that you do understand about the medical use of pills and not just the birth control side.

Since the student had originally been scheduled to speak before the committee discussing the religious rights of a institution I believe that was her angle. She was asked by some legislators to speak and then denied that opportunity by the committee. So I’m not sure if she changed her message when she finally got to speak. The main issue with the whole contraception argument was that certain institutions would deem certain things “against their belief” and deny that medical service to their employees.

My biggest concern about this whole thing is Rush Limbaugh’s response to it. We can talk about whether or not what she asked for is right or wrong. But what was definitely wrong was what (can’t keep a wife, doctor shopping, pill popping Rush said. It amazes me that a person who holds himself up as one who speaks truth would demean a young lady by calling her a slut and prostitute. And he didn’t seem to have any afterthought about it at all.

Speaking at a hearing held by Pelosi to tout Pres. Obama’s mandate that virtually every health insurance plan cover the full cost of contraception and abortion-inducing products, Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke said that it’s too expensive to have sex in law school without mandated insurance coverage. Apparently, four out of every ten co-eds are having so much sex that it’s hard to make ends meet if they have to pay for their own contraception, Fluke’s research shows.”

When my kids go to college – you aren’t paying for their health insurance – I am! You are NOT paying for hers, she is. The college has elected to give faculty contraceptive coverage to the facutly, but not offer it to the students. They offer a policy that does NOT cover contraceptives.

Apparently, four out of every ten co-eds are having so much sex that it’s hard to make ends meet if they have to pay for their own contraception, Fluke’s research shows.

I noticed this part had none of those pesky quotation marks, so until I can find the actual testimony I will assume it is more of the typical made up newsmax/fox style of reporting. At least today greeted us with one less of the lying scum.

Poor Limbaugh makes all this money, and is probably not gay, but he’s such a pathetic slob that anyone other than a goldigger would want anything to do with his lard-ass. A decent woman couldn’t stand him, and he knows that, so therefore all decent women are sluts and bitches.

And being call a slut by this popular sleaze purveying goon will be good for the law student’s future career, so this is actually working out quite well for her. Besides, if she’s not tough, she’s choosing the wrong profession, but since she spoke up publicly about her concern, she’s tough enough.

@timbo – I am understanding you have a reading problem. Here are the quotes, per your own link:
“Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us that they struggled financially as a result of this policy”
“Without insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school,” Fluke told the hearing.
“For a lot of students, like me, who are on public interest scholarships, that’s practically an entire summer’s salary,” she complains.
Notice the reference to 40% struggling financially to pay for the contraceptives, didn’t say anything about having sex. Notice also it takes her a summer’s worth of salary to pay for it – how do you get that you are paying for it? How?

Limbaugh was wrong calling the student a slut. Just because she’s a woman speaking her mind about the latest hot topic in politics, she’s asking to be verbally assaulted? It’s like saying she’s pretty, so she asked to be raped.

WE ARE ALL PAYING insurance premiums for the same companies, so guess what? Whether you pay for contraception on YOUR particular insurance plan or not, YOU ARE STILL PAYING for someone else to have it. Its very very obvious those who blog here are not in the industry.

rivercard – Yeah, people are idiots. Saying that 40% of the student population can’t afford to buy contraception is not the same as saying 40% of the female student population is having so much sex they can’t afford to buy the medicine. But it is much better to paint all these women as whores instead of actually trying to address the issue.

The rest of the article is the writers own opinion, not fact. The facts are, she is paying for her insurance and it is a financial struggle. She is going to a school that allows it for the faculty, not the students. Is that fair? It is not offered. She is using the college insurance because it is far more cheaper than getting it on her own, as we all know. Group insurance isn’t affordable but get a policy on your own and forget it. And before all of you start about her having sex, how in the world do you know she is not the one having cyst explode in her body and that is why she is using the contraceptive?

I don’t see anything wrong with what Rush said. If she doesn’t like the fact she is going to a Jesuit law school that intends to live out its beliefs instead of caving to whiners like her, she can find another school. No school, college, business, or organization should be required to provide contraceptives. If you want to engage in sex, you should be responsible for either providing your own contraceptives or the consequences of a baby. Responsibility starts prior to the sex, not after the fact.

Besides, the only contraceptive that woman needs is to ensure her partner doesn’t have a bag to throw over her head. Yuckkk! Who would, oh never mind.

timbo – you are missing the point. Why should we care if she is banging the basketball team? We should care that we live in America, where things should be as equal as possible. Where if the men can get viagra, woman should also get the form of medicine that is needed for her medical needs, and I’m not talking about birth control. But for your argument, lets just say she has found the love of her life and is having gawd forsaken sex. Just what if she has a gene that has all of her children being born a horrific death after living for only 6 mos. Do you want to force her to go through that, then the insurance company pay for the hospital bill, only to have a 6 month old die a painful death? Or do you think that if she carries that gene, she just shouldn’t have sex at all. And I think your being civil, so far. :)

Do they do social events with the Georgetown Law Students for Alien Body Replacements?

$3,000 for contraception? Can’t she go out and buy her own condoms? Why should the school?
This is insane. No wonder tuition is going through the roof.

You can bet every eligible Repug family will take advantage of this , just like family leave plan.

With the Repug womb invaders on the march it seems to me Reproductive justice might be a worthy cause.

“We are fortunate to live in a democracy where everyone is entitled to their own opinions regarding legitimate policy differences. Unfortunately, numerous commentators have gone far beyond the acceptable bounds of civil discourse.

“No woman deserves to be disrespected in this manner. This language is an attack on all women, and has been used throughout history to silence our voices.

“The millions of American women who have and will continue to speak out in support of women’s health care and access to contraception prove that we will not be silenced.”

I think it is down right scary that the libs on this blog seem to have no problem at all with 17 and 18 year old kids having sex whenever they want, and shamelessly supporting their decisions. Their point of view is that the kids are going to do it anyway, so just let them have at it. Speaks volumes about your parenting skills, not to mention your morals.

Call me a prude if you want, actually I am expecting far worse then that, but when a society has lost its moral compass, we are all doomed. No time in our countries history has sex been as open and free as it is today, but when someone speaks out on it, they are shouted down by the liberal masses, just like I am about to be. You folks ought to look yourself in the mirror and ask if this is the society that you want.

But here is the real rub for conservatives, liberals will condemn what republicans say and do on the basis that it is unkind, inhuman, racist etc… However they insist that killing a fetus is ok. Limbaughs verbiage is indeed vile but I bet it is less so than the act of sucking a beating heart out of a womb.

As you know this is not about verbage or name calling. This is about a slow bleed strategy that the dems are following. Pass unread laws in order to prevail in the overall medical take over, change the name of abortion to “health care rights for women” (like women all over the country are denied healthcare), mandate religious institutions to waive their actual religious beliefs in favor of said care and then hit us with the well know refrain of ” abortion is part of a woman’s health care “. In the end dems will have circumvented the entire abortion argument by simply mandating its coverage. After all if we can force any religious institution to cover it the rest is a done deal.

But seriously how can a catholic or Protestant democrat support or justify supporting abortion if they are truly religious ? Where does that waiver come from ?

I respect her because she is not arguing for free love, altering the word of God just to make a homosexual couple feel better about themselves, thinks you should pay for your own healthcare via your job- which you should get no matter how hard it is and she thinks that a child is a child not a choice, after you get pregnant.

I’m 70 years old, a Southerner, and fiscally conservative, but I utterly repudiate Rush Limbaugh’s out-of-control rant, including his “slut” slur, about Ms. Fluke. Limbaugh panders to the lowest element of society, aside from being a total hypocrite on many things, and revels in money earned from making outrageous statements. I’m not a woman but can tell you that my late mother (born 1913, died 1998), who voted Republican for at least the last four decades of her life, was nevertheless an ardent supporter of a woman’s right to choose (which necessarily encompasses contraception), and was most outspoken about it. Here’s the consolation: Fortunately, people like Limbaugh are doing great work getting Mr. Obama re-elected, by publicly spouting such garbage. My personal comment to Limbaugh: “pick on someone your own size, if you can find somewhat that fat, you bully/sissy.”

Limbaugh does what he does. His babble shouldn’t be used as a reason to turn this into a matter of misogyny. His point can be made a good bit less nastily. What the women want who are objecting is to have someone else pay for contraceptives so they can be free to enjoy sex without the consequences of pregnancy. But it isn’t other people’s responsibility to do that. This is just another example of an entitlement mentality. Women may be entitled to have contraceptives available, but that doesn’t put the burden on others to pay for them. More fundamentally, though, this is also just another attempt to make a particular social issue a gender issue when it isn’t. It’s a religious freedom issue. No one is inhibiting the freedom of women who want contraceptives. They can run down to the store and get them. In the same way that secularists would balk at being forced to pay for something religious people want that is offensive to the non-religious, many Christians balk at having to violate their beliefs for the benefit of others who have no right to demand it of them.

If condoms were to cost $2 each,
and Uncle Sam provided her with $3,000 per year,
she would have $8.22 per day to spend.
So she could have 4 intercourse(s) per day at least.
That’s where Rush is so dumb;
a smart remark would be that no single boyfriend
could have sex every day, four times, for a year.
Even 4 husbands would require 365 sexual ejaculations in one year per husband!

ok maybe the fat one went too far, but she set herself up for ridicule by insisting her law school needs to pay for $3000 worth of contraception…anyway you slice, that’s a lot of sex….has she heard of condoms? they’re pretty cheap and effective…and if you’re one of those rare poor lawyers, there’s always planned parenthood.

Limbaugh is a pig. Always was. Hey Limbaugh, did you ever pay for that toilet seat installed in your home?

Hey, Ms. Flake is the one who has called attention upon herself. Now she has to deal with the consequences, and she has a ready and willing leftist media, like Jay here, to help her out. Here is an idea. Why doesn’t the left create a fund raiser for contraceptives. You can have a big party, call it the ‘Dance with no pants’ party, and all money received can go to buy Ms Flake and her feminazi friends all the birth control they need.

What Rush did was question her motives, something the media should have done instead of throw bombs at the right and say we do not support women’s health issues. Another tactic out of the democratic playbook. You are not pissed at Rush for what he said, you are pissed at Rush because he has you figured out. Deal with it.

Really, all he did was question her motives? Then the next day he says, hey if we’re going to pay for it then she should videotape.

Rush hasn’t figured out jack. We are pissed at Rush because he had no business calling a woman a prostitute or slut over the airwaves. Period, paragraph.

Sorry Carole, but you are wrong. As I said earlier, she has brought this upon herself, and the feminazis on the left, with her asinine assumptions to make birth control another welfare program.

I am sure that you are also pissed at your lefty idols for their kind remarks about Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, and Michelle Bachman. Of course, you probably didn’t hear those because you live in a liberal vacuum where you hear only what you want to hear.

His use of the word ’slut’ is a little over the top, kind of like when CNBC host Erin Burnett called Sarah Palin a ‘MILF’. Of course, that is OK because she is a conservative.

All you libs are hypocrites.

Carole,

And I am sure this pissed you off as well

Howard Stern – “Let me ask you something Sarah, if somebody had a big rifle scope with your daughter’s face on it. What would think of that? Would you allow it? Would you think that was a good thing? You fu$#%r! You c@#t!”

Here Carole, listen to this. Did Jay do a blog about this? Doubt it very seriously

Care to share your ‘anger’ about the ‘tea bagging’ comments made by those on the left?

Carole,

I have given you just a few examples of the vitriol and hate from the left. Your silence has proven my point.

If you do not like what Rush said, there are dials on your radio and I would suggest that you use them.

What is wrong with you people who literally think she is saying they need $3,000 to cover contraceptives. Try reading the context where she said it “can cost a woman more than $3,000 … [and] spoke of a friend who had an ovary removed.”

For crying out loud, do you really think she is just asking for birth control pills.. Wake up

First of all I NEVER LISTEN TO HOWARD STERN. He’s just as sick as Rush. At least his brand of radio is just what you expect. Women sit in his studio and show their breast. He’s not an alleged political commentator. A person that has the entire Democratic party waiting with baited breath to hear what he has to say. He’s not the two-headed Godfather of the Democratic party like Karl Rove and Rush are. So I don’t care what he says.

What is a MILF? By the way, were any of the women on the right called sluts or prostitutes? Did anyone on the Left suggest that they videotape their sexual encounters? There is a level of name calling that is usually considered acceptable. The names that Rush called this woman are not.

At least Schultz had the courage and was a REAL MAN unlike the lard-assed pill popping hypocrite when he made a 9 MINUTE SINCERE APOLOGY to a nasty public personality like Laura Ingrham. Fluke on the other hand is a PRIVATE citizen unlike Ingraham or Limpballs.

Either way since most Americans equate Limpballs as the de facto leader of the Republicans, this is going to hurt bad in November.

Just remember you read it here- If the Republicans thought the 2008 elections were a disaster they will long for it after this election cycle. Romney like the typical coward he is, refused to criticize Limpballs and gain some respect. Too bad for you right wing nuts that your likely nominee has absolutely no nads and bows down to King Tub-o-Lard.

Your clueless asses are getting swept out of the House and you can definitely forget about the Senate. The White House? Ha ha ha!!

This is like watching Titanic steam towards the iceberg and instead of taking evasive action just go full steam ahead right for the berg….

Good night now GOP!!
