    I may reconsider my position on this.

    Since the moonbat messiah's regime started this controversy over contraception it has escalated to the point where Limbaugh apparently called a ***** a ****, and of course the usual suspects got predicatably butthurt.

    Of course if said ***** was part of the Palin family.... (crickets)

    Did the ayatollah of assaholas call Sarah Palin with words of encouagement after Bill Maher called her a c#^&? No, only people towing the fascist line are exempt from insulting rhetoric. I'm just glad obozo has time on his hands for such important endeavors.

    But I digress...

    I'm starting to think it might actually benefit society to subsidize contraception for liberals. Using this ***** for an example, who is a 30 year old student at an expensive law school, but is too stupid too budget enough for contraception which I think she claimed cost her $3000 a year. Which is probably more than what many porn studios have too pay. I'm seriously concerned about the possibility of having this insipid parasite procreating at some point. This ***** is actually a prime candidate for retroactive abortion.

    My question is, just how much sex are you having to run up a 3k bill in condoms and/or spermicide? Since that is all that is truely needed. And I know they also make female condoms, so if she doesn't trust the man using a condom then she can be the one to use it.

    Wow. The media persona RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRUSH is still around? And relevant? I guess the moonbats will always need someone to tell them how to think.

    I find it somewhat disturbing to see someone, or some people, referring to our President, and Leader of the Free world, as vulgar names. Y'all do realize that this forum can be viewed without having an account right? Which means anyone can see your posts with ease? Read and see what you're saying... Doesn't really give us a good platform if and when someone calls our entire community out, because a few of our members refer to the person holding such a high, respected office, "Obozo" and "Moonbat Massiah". Just saying, ya know?

    Oh who am I kidding; Please, keep up the stupid, insipid referring, and names, and insults directed at a person of large power, and keep inviting the DHS, and ATF, and FBI to browse our forum, and make notes of every one of us posters and lurkers. Because we probably don't get enough secretive government attention as is, we need more!

    "Rush is right" Really? Really? Well, he IS 'right' ... in the fashion of being RIGHT WING EXTREMIST... The fat Klansman who gets paid to rile up republicans, and anyone stupid enough to listen to him, incite rebellion through subversive means, and inspire idiots to lash out with hateful words, speeches, and actions. Yep, Because Rush is the most honest, pure, glorified version of man in the entire USA, and he is the only one whose opinion and idea's are right, and good, and he's such a great friend of Jesus, that he's survived heart attacks, and obesity, so he can preach the word of the holy republican Agenda.

    You rush people are more nuts and insane than President Obama's left-wing nutjobs, and you should be ashamed of yourselves.

    There are two consequences to referring to the President in a derogatory way: (1) contributing to the eroding of the political system; (2) the party engaging in the behavior will pay a price politically--if you don't believe me, watch on November 6th, 2012.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    You obviously don't have a wife or daughter who has been on the pill...

    It's around $30-75/week depending on the kind you get, plus doctors appointments.

    IF this woman is going to Georgetown (and presumably lives in the DC area) and can get oral contraceptives (and the associated Ob-Gyn visits) for $3000/year, she's getting a TREMENDOUS DEAL, especially if she's uninsured and paying out of pocket. Most Ob-Gyns wont even take new patients in the DC area if you don't have insurance, and the ones that will, charge premium fees.

    People take the pill for a myriad of reasons. Regulating menstrual cycles, family planning, or maybe they just enjoy having sex with their husband but don't want to get knocked up...

    This whole "contraception hoohaa" is repulsive. The "right" doesn't seem to have ANY problem performing post-partum abortions on thousands of Iraqi, Pakistani, and Afghani children every year. They don't seem to have any problem shipping tons of cocaine and heroin into the US to enslave thousands of American women into lives of prostitution and degradation.

    And the "left" doesn't seem to have any problem shipping tens of thousands of guns to Mexican drug lords so they can kill women and children in Mexico. They don't seem to have any problem continuing the Bush administration's Middle-East blood sacrifice to Mammon.

    Cancer is at it's highest rate in history in industrialized nations. Monsanto is attempting to coopt the entire genome of the planet through their GMO terrorism attack on the crops of organic farmers, and the enslavement of third world farmers through forcing them to use their self-sterilizing seed stock. The US is shutting down electrical power generating plants in record numbers--to "save the earth", and meanwhile, China is building dirty coal-powered generation plants faster than some Americans change their underwear, spewing sulfur dioxide and heavy metals into the air an water at a rate that makes America in the post-WWII era look like an Eden-like environmental utopia.

    WTF is anyone worried about whether or not a woman uses the Pill? It's OK for all you crypto-fascists to subsidize Dick Cheney's Viagra and Cialis prescriptions, but you've got an issue with a Law School student wanting to STAY IN SCHOOL and not get knocked up? WTF is wrong with you people?

    Woman who want to control their own lives are a HUGE threat to the Status Quo--on both sides. Admit it. The "right" is essentially been transformed into the neo-feudaistic fascist wing of the same blood-thirsty vulture that the "left" acts as the neo-feudalistic collectivist wing for.

    Wake up people--this "issue" is a double-edged dagger:

    On one side it is a distraction from the REAL issues to keep the American people from asking REAL questions of their politicians (like WHY THE HELL are we still in Afghanistan, and WHY hasn't the entire Bush administration been endicted on war crimes charges, and why hasn't Eric Holder been clapped in irons and tossed into Leavenworth or Gitmo for Treason, or why isn't the Santorum's abortion in 1996 being BLASTED across the media, or whether or not we REALLY want a President (Romney) who wears magical underwear, thinks that God lives on his own planet, and considers blacks to have the "mark of Cain", etc, etc, etc)

    On the other side, it is truly the "system" showing it's true agenda--which is to return the "common people" to the status of "chattel"--where only the rulers may decide who can reproduce, who they can mate with, and how many children they can have.

    If a man has sex with a lot of women, he's seen as some sort of "mench". If he's been married 4 or 5 times, he's seen as some sort of stud-muffin or something.

    But if a woman has more than one sexual partner in her life she's branded with a scarlet "A", and publicly defamed as a "*****" or a "****".

    Rush Limbaugh is a drug addict, a serial adulterer, a compulsive liar, and a fat sloppy propagandist ***** for his financial puppet masters.

    Rush calling someone else a "*****" is like Jeffry Daumer calling someone else excessively violent...

    Oh, my!

    Our president? Leader of the Free World?

    Dangerous ideas. Very dangerous.

    When I vote for the President, I do not--emphatically do not--vote for our president. I am voting for the senior executive of one of three branches of the federal government. Nothing more. He is not my president. He is the executive branch's president, the fed gov's president. Literally, nothing more.

    The only leader I need is my supervisor at work and his boss. That's it. Nothing more. As for leadership on social issues, I will seek the ideas of men and women whose insight and wisdom I deem worthy. Men like Locke, Jefferson, Jesus of Nazareth, Bhudda, Cato, Socrates, von Mises, Rothbard, and so forth.

    Nowhere in the constitution does it say a darned thing about the president being the leader of the free world, nor even the country's president.

    To elevate the executive to leadership of the country (our president) is in fact to elevate him to the leadership of society. There's nothing about that in the constitution. Also, such elevation hands a president far more recognition than he deserves. He's the boss of the executive branch. That's all.

    And, none of this speaks to the vicious criminality of expropriating people's earnings, or regulating them to death, or impoverishing them through monetary policy and debt.

    And in this case the c*** s**** has violated his oath of office so many times it is impossible to keep track. Therefore he deserves NO respect the executive office normally demands.

    Sidenote to self: Wonder if "c*** s*****" is on the Big Sis watch list of words...?

    I'm pretty convinced Rush is part of the problem. He just feeds the divisiveness in this country.

    I refuse to be angry at half the people with who I share this section of North America.

    However, the elites who practice divide-and-conquer, and pander to human weaknesses in order satiate rent-seekers for their own political gain....

    If looking only for the birth control, an IUD is a one time cost of 200-400 bucks, plus cost of insertion. However, most women use birth control not only for the child protection, but the hormonal regulation. That can range from 15 bucks a month (generic pills with insurance) to 80+ bucks a month (e.g. Nuva ring without insurance). Additionally, for STD protection for sexually active people who aren't monogamous, good condoms are 1-2 dollars each. Cheap ones are free to 1 dollar each. Add to that a gynecological exam every year or twice a year, and STD tests in between partners, and you can easily get around 1500-2500 a year. Different areas may be more expensive, so it wouldn't shock me if that 3k figure is accurate (assuming you remember correctly) after tax and any attendant expenses.

    Of course, PFW doesn't really care about any of that, he just wants to feel justified in his hatred and in calling women "******."

    Not suprisingly, we see the self righteous indignation over references to the POTUS that are tame compared to that which Bush 43 endured. As bad as his policies were for constitutional freedom he didn't deserve a lot of it. I recall "artists" openly fantasizing about his death and getting acolades from bed wetting hollywood types.

    BTW...

    The last KLANSMAN who held any political power was
    Senator Byrd D-W.VA.

    As most of us are aware, in order to be a moonbat, one has too maintain a mind devoid of reality.

    My wife is on the pill and has been since our last baby, with insurance it's 26 bucks a month. What's a rubber cost? 2 bucks? I don't spend 8 bucks a day to feed myself sometimes, so I can't possibly imagine how someone needs more than that to prevent pregnancy. Maybe I'm being too prudish or judgemental, but instead of whining on national TV try this:

    STOP ^%$##@ING AROUND YOU STUPID *****!!!!

    I can respect that stance, but my disgust for people who clamor for the rest of society, or anyone else, to provide their food, clothing, shelter and now ******* BIRTH CONTROL!?!?!?!? leads me to be angry and literally HATE (I don't think it's half, more like 20%) the parasites who demand all these freebies. I also HATE the leftist media machine who drag these oxygen thieves out, and then try to manipulate people into feeling sorry for them. If that's not enough those of us who excoriate these parasites for their own failures and dependency are maligned for what seems to me a completely natural reaction and emotion.

    I refuse to be embarassed for HATING people who have reversed the theory of evolution...

    Now we live in a world where the strong prop up the weak, the intelligent are dragged down by idiots, and the independent are forced to serve the useless.

    Thank you for the respect.

    Don't overlook that the parasites wouldn't be demanding if they didn't think the criminal panderers wouldn't provide. If they thought they'd be refused, they wouldn't bother to demand.

    It is the criminal panderers who provide the vital link in the chain. It is the criminal panderers who validate the parasites, making their demands seem legitimate.

    If it were not for the criminal panderers, the parasites would have no access to their hosts' blood.

    Very good point, but I (that is we, the "host") aren't solely responsible for the fact these criminal panderers get elected. The parasites are allowed too vote too. Maybe only property owners should be allowed to vote, or people who actually pay income taxes. That right there would make the democrap party extinct, and radically change the repuke party.

    To be honest I don't even mind having some "safety net" or a system that provides subsistance for people who
    through no fault of their own are unable to be productive. We gone so far past a tolerable level of charity that people in LAW SCHOOL (not a cheap one either) are whining about paying $3000 a year for something that is actually a luxury. That frosts my ass on the surface, and causes great concern for the future of the empire.

    Even more ludicrous is the vitriol, wailing, and indignation not over the complete idiocy above, but over some radio show host how actually hits the nail on the head when he calls a ***** a ****.

    THAT'S the issue we're supposed to be upset about.

    So it's not just the criminal political scum that comprises the entirety of the democrap party, and a significant part of the repukes. It's the media, academia, and a large part of the entertainment industry. I can't believe there are people who can even read this post and not understand why people like me have such contempt for the liberal "mentality", let alone re-examine their own fundamentals and realize just how detrimental to humanity their political persuasion is.

    I was a lib myself till about 20 years ago. The fact that there are any left in spite of the availability of information boggles the mind. Until I realize...

    Childproof lids on household chemicals prevented the genetically stupid from following the natural path to extinction.

    Whether or not birth control should be used is an entirely different topic (and never a productive one) but regardless of my personal moral views on contraception, I fully agree that WE should not be paying for someone else's contraceptives. What will we be paying for next, their monthly salon up-keep?

    And, as to using birth control as a way to control hormones...well, I'm sorry, but it actually doesn't. (I mean that as nicely as possible) It will "stop" certain "problems", but it won't cure them. Problems are generally indicative of something bigger going on.
    Frequently birth control will interrupt the natural flow of hormones, causing infertility (sometimes permanently), and in the case if IUD's, passing through tissue to other parts of the body, but it never cures what is causing the issue. Why not go directly to the source and fix it, instead of just putting a band aid on it?

    I'm not telling anyone to NOT use birth control; simply that if you are going to; be aware of the risks. There are more than just what is printed on the box.

    I learned just this past week that almost every perfume on the market has chemicals that cause hormonal imbalances, and that almost every deodorant contains aluminum; another metal being absorbed into your body that you cannot dispose of. Make up contains lead, juice contains arsenic, fabric softener has toxins easily absorbed by the skin...

    Is it really any wonder that cancer, infertility and brain diseases like Alzheimers are on the rise?

    Agreed. I used to be a "Rush Baby" until about six months ago, when I finally got sick of it. When I did listen, it was with a critical ear, but now I don't even care to give him that.

    And, as to using birth control as a way to control hormones...well, I'm sorry, but it actually doesn't. (I mean that as nicely as possible) It will "stop" certain "problems", but it won't cure them. Problems are generally indicative of something bigger going on.
    Frequently birth control will interrupt the natural flow of hormones, causing infertility (sometimes permanently), and in the case if IUD's, passing through tissue to other parts of the body, but it never cures what is causing the issue. Why not go directly to the source and fix it, instead of just putting a band aid on it?

    I'm not telling anyone to NOT use birth control; simply that if you are going to; be aware of the risks. There are more than just what is printed on the box.

    I learned just this past week that almost every perfume on the market has chemicals that cause hormonal imbalances, and that almost every deodorant contains aluminum; another metal being absorbed into your body that you cannot dispose of. Make up contains lead, juice contains arsenic, fabric softener has toxins easily absorbed by the skin...

    Is it really any wonder that cancer, infertility and brain diseases like Alzheimers are on the rise?
    There are a number of reasons that individuals take 'the pill', and they are not all for contraceptive purposes. I have taken the pill due to estrogen dominance where I needed pprogestin to balance out my hormonal equation; trust me, I needed it!

    There can be deeper issues to hormone imbalance but it takes time to identify what the issue is. About four months ago I stopped taking estrogen and progesterone because it was discovered that I actually had a thyroid issue. I suppose my point is that contraception isn't always used for contraception only, there are other reasons, such as: regulating cycle, breast pain (I had), and it has been argued to help with reducing the risk of osteroperosis.

    The fact that contraception is even brought up by the Right speaks to their lack of legitimate arguements. I am of the opinion that this type of discussion on the Right is going to be damaging to their chances come November. Pistol, you may not agree that insurance ought to cover contraception, heck, PAP, or any other service that is directed towards females, I thnk you would be hard-pressed to offer-up some numbers where the majority of females agree with you on this issue of insurance coverage. If the majority of females believe there ought to be such coverage, then the Right are jumping in the ring for a fight they will lose; they have lost it before.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    Exactly. And even if we were paying for it there's plenty of cheaper options out there. It's like a kid telling their parent that they (the parents) should pay for their car because the car is going to cost them $50k and that the kid can't afford it so the parent must pay for it. If you can't afford it you either go without or you look for a cheaper option.

    Also note that I'm fully against the health care law and not just the contraceptive bit. So this isn't just me being against mandatory contraceptive payments. But if a religious organization provides your health care then they are setting up the terms and shouldn't be forced to provide something they don't want to provide as healthcare isn't a right; and if you don't like it then you can go somewhere else or pay for it yourself (and as pointed out you don't HAVE to spend $3k in contraceptive).

    Oh and to the person (Twanos?) that decided to include things like doctor's visits in the cost, you're distorting the numbers to make them work. The cost for various checks is NOT a part of the cost for contraceptives unless it is specifically required for insertion (like an IUD).

    This whole thing is just an attempt to further force taxpayers to pay for other people's obligations instead of making them work for it.

    Going to college is not a right and asking me to pay for things someone may need while going to college is wrong.

    Considering that she is paying $45,000 a semester, I mean, the uber-liberal backers are paying $45,000 a semester for her college, perhaps she should ask them for the money.

    This has absolutely nothing to do with women's rights or whatever. It is another money grab to pay for liberal ideals.

    Learned from where?

    Also, all three of those things are associated with living longer. Are you saying we shouldn't live as long?
