Once again though the Pill is more than just a contraceptive. It is an effective treatment for a number of conditions, some of which can be life threatening. Last time I checked a condom doesn't help in the prevention of ovarian cysts.

Mr. Limbaugh said "so much sex she can't afford her birth control pills."

Unlike the Viagra you take on your trips to slave trade havens, Rush, women don't need to pop a birth control pill when they have sex -- they take it on a regular schedule whether they have one sexual incident a year, or many. In fact, some women are on birth control to regulate their hormones with no intention of sex at all.

I'd say Rush was ignorant -- but I don't think he gave much consideration to what he said before he said it. He has no real standards other than rabble rousing, it appears.

Even if this young lady were a slut -- that would put her standing far above that of some sell out propagandist like Rush.

“Without insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school,” Fluke told the hearing.


That's not far off the mark. In just a brief search I found a brand, Seasonale, that costs $206 per menstrual cycle. Considering that a menstrual cycle is about 28-days long that comes in to be a little over 13 menstrual cycles a year. Multiplying 206 by 13 gives you just about $2700 a year. I know someone earlier in the thread mentioned a brand that costs $250 per menstrual cycle. This comes in at $3250 a year. So yes, without insurance it can cost over $3000 a year for the Pill.

El Rushbo as Limbaugh calls himself is just playing into the hands of the left.
Every time he screws up he weakens the platform he is supposed to be defending.

Turns out the Sandra Fluke isn't a 23 year old coed, she is a woman's right activist 30 years old and chose Georgetown on purpose because they don't provide contraception and she wanted to make a big stink about it.

Personally I don't care what she does, if she feels strongly and wants to manipulate the system/media for her cause go ahead.

Rush screwed up though, if he sat back and waited for more info on her to come out he could have labeled her a political plant instead of a slut.
He would have still made his point and he would have come out of it looking a lot better.

Speaking of political "plants" why the hell is the right putting up with this?
For years contraception wasn't even in the news and all of a sudden a point that makes the right look stupid is the biggest story?
To use an interweb phrase "stop feeding the trolls".
Right wing poeple you aren't going to win if you keep this up, and even if you "win" the argument you will lose the fight for the white house.
Talk about what you want to fix and ignore bating questions that make you look stupid.

Nobody is asking you to pay for anyone's birth control. It about negotiating an insurance policy with an employer or educator that includes women's reproductive services.

She wants insurance to pay for her birth control correct? So everyone who pays the insurance company will be paying for it....there is no free stuff. Insurance is for injuries, illnesses. ...

edit on 3-3-2012 by MidnightTide because: (no reason given)



Well, if we cut out the processed foods, the cholesterol. the many carbs, the dairy, the wheat, the sugar, and make sure nobody smokes. Make sure everybody works out. Well, I think we've cut down on 90% of all health related disease in this country other than those that strike everyone two weeks before death.

Why do we have Health Insurance at all? Oh yeah, to spread risk! And to pay for drugs we don't really need. That birth control LOWERS costs because a baby cost a lot more to insurance.

>> It's amazing you didn't know that prevention is cheaper than treatment -- what with that penny pinching personal responsibility you are championing. IT's really surprising that all these people who want to save so much Health Insurance costs, are for Health Insurance at all.

You must really hate women enough to call for such crap.

Pretty sad when you make it a partisan issue, which is isn't.

You sure are not going to educate me on the matter

Unless you want more messed up kids born to half-baked parents, you will support birth control.

Abstinence is not an effective form of birth control.

And would it matter if she were? What is wrong with loving people and being intimate? And what MAN turns down sex from attractive women on a daily basis -- certainly not a man who uses such a word. The term "slut" often falls from the lips of guys who married the first lady they got to 3rd base with, and can't get sex unless they pay for it. Losers use that term. Makes sense that Limbaugh said it, since he pays for sex all the time.

Loneliness is far more deadly than sex.

What about a person that has a heart attack? That's not your problem but could potentially affect your premium because it's covered by insurance. What about insulin? That's treatment for a problem that will never go away and is something that certainly affects your premium. Why don't you have a problem with that being covered by insurance even though it doesn't affect you. The truth is that most of what you pay for your insurance are for treatments that don't affect you and that you will never need. Why don't you have a problem with those? Why is it such a big deal if the birth control pill is covered by insurance? I mean more than half the states already mandate that it is covered in all insurance plans. So odds it's already covered by your insurance and you didn't know it.

I'm not calling for it at all.
I think the comments were stupid, but he has a right to make stupid comments.
He is paying for it by losing advertisers as should happen via the free market.

I was just pointing out that he got played.
Not him specifically, but the whole situation.
She went to Georgetown in order to cause a big stink for her views.

I think it's brilliant on her part, she has a political view and positioned herself to maximize her exposure and awareness for her side.

If you think I hate women just because I said Rush got played you have a chip on your shoulder.

People claim she went to Georgetown simply to cause a scene. I have yet to really see evidence to support that. Was she a political activist before she went to Georgetown? Yes. That doesn't change the fact that Georgetown is one of the best school's in the nation. Plenty of people go to schools who have policies they don't support. For example the university I went to was one of the only in the state to maintain a one-strike policy. I know plenty of people who fought to have this policy changed. They didn't choose the school to fight this policy. They chose it because it was a good school. Another example from my university. Plenty of students fought for an increase in the wages of staff. Once again they didn't choose the school to be activists. They chose the school to get a good education and along the way they tried to change the policies they didn't agree with. So show me where Fluke's motivation to go to Georgetown was anything more than to get one of the best educations in the country.

I don't think publicity was this lady's top priority. I don't think it factors in as a variable in why she does what she does outside of the benefits of networking with like minded peoples.


Of course it was. I bet she got paid by one of those Soros organizations to do this as a tactic. It's what these leftist radicals do, and it's just the means to their end, which is a completely socialist society. It is also a fact that Marxists have infiltrated the churches and the Christian schools. I know a woman whose family came from Brazil, and she spent years in the seminary library. She said the marxists infiltrated big time in Brazil.

You can read articles

and here

Again if she wants to stand up for what she thinks is right good for her.

I'm just pointing out that Rush played into her hands even if it was indirect.
She gets more attention and her opposition look stupid.
It's brilliant!

Actually people have asked you flat out, but you refuse to answer so you can troll more effectively.


When I am discussing a topic about Ron Paul, and discussing Ron Paul...someone asking me who I support and for me to go on about Obama would be derailing the thread.

I stay on topic...here...we are talking about my support of Obama in an Obama thread...all good.

If I wanted to "troll"...I could derail every single Ron Paul thread that exists by bringing up my support for Obama



There is obviously a difference between a conservative and a neo conservative. You would have to be ignorant to not understand it. I know you are probably only like 22 or so, but if Obama is the president a second term, when you turn about 25 and realize how and why you were wrong, you can make a thread apologizing.


Please tell me the difference. They both vote for Republicans. Please don't tell me true "conservatives" are Libertarians.

And nope...I'm not 22...you aren't doing very good on your assumptions. I'm in my thirties...there will be no apologizes coming from me




That is unless you are in your early twenties and have rich parents/trust fund and never have to work a day in your life, then you will never learn.


And you round out your ignorance with another false assumption.

I could spell out my life story for you, but I honestly don't care what you think and you wouldn't believe it anyway.

It doesn't affect me in any way to see jane smith down the road accidently have a baby. Honestly, i wouldn't care - so why should the burden be carried onto me and you?

How about if she can't afford it, her partner should foot it. They are the only 2 people choosing to risk birth.
If i pay for it, then do i get to knock on her door and decide with her if she should have sex or not?

No, we just pay for it like everything else, and let them do as they bloody well please! We just shut up and pay.

If you can't afford it, then you have to options.
Have sex with the risk; or
Don't have sex

This is pretty simple stuff! This is very basic logic.

That's just like me saying i can't afford this car, but i need to drive to work every day. Buy me a car!
Oh wait, that does happen in my country - only for the "original" inhabitants though. Us evil foreigners don't get anything, because we only gave them civilization. (rolls eyes)
