Call the guy whatever you like, but he's no fool. This little exercise was choreographed and executed all according to plan.

Of course it was highly orchestrated, lol. They are all highly orchestrated. That's why I roll my eyes at the lot of them, I don't care what their political stripe is. I'm an equal opportunity mocker.

Dead on. Limbaugh rarely has anything intelligent to say. His show, which is the intellectual equivalent of the WWE, thrives on controversy. Intelligent thought has very little do do with the poison that comes out of this idiot's mouth. In fact intellignet thought would be completely wasted on his core audience.

I think that Rush and his advisors are counting on many more folks tuning just to hear (and confirm) some of this bile.

It's not unlike driving by an accident on the highway... You don't want to look, but you do anyways

Honestly it's the sensationalistic style that just turns me off. It really has nothing to do with where he sits on the political spectrum, I'm equally as turned off by the mellow drama that perpetuates the left hand of the spectrum. Everything becomes overblown, it's "infotainment". I'd rather just have straight news and straight forward political commentary, from all sides.

Sorry, there are only certain ways one can share the blog, legally. Since it turned up in my email, I didn't realize this.

One needs to go to google "Stone Kettle Station"
Click on "The Perversity of Extremism Tends Towards the Maximum.

It didn't seem wise to post it to my facebook page. It is long, and by a man but he certainly gets the point across.

Not likely to happen - he has been divorced 3 or 4 times and each time the women get loads of alimony off of him. They play him for a sucker and he ultimately pays for it. Serves him right.

I did read through most of the blog.

To be honest, the guy comes across as a very angry man that has a hard on for all things related to religion. His rhetoric and overly dramatic presentation aside, I don't disagree with some of the principles outlined.

That said, Sandra Flukes' actions aren't about women's health in the medical sense. She is lobbying for the inclusion of contraceptives in the insurance coverage... She's welcome to merrily hump her way through law school - it makes no difference to me, in fact myself and many other people that I know spent 4 years working to get laid and squeezed in business school in the off hours.

The difference is this: myself and all the folks that I knew (at least most of 'em) placed enough value on our individual health, well being and futures that spending cash on contraception wasn't considered a problem - it was a necessity.

If Flukes has that little respect for her health and future, then why on earth would I give a rip about her health and future?

That's all this is. Rushbo knows it and most anyone with an ounce of common sense too. She's a liberal shill. Why else would the Commander in Chief get involved in this. Patting the wee thing on the head and making her boo boo go away. Gimme a break.

So, it's wrong to expect Flukes to pay for her own birth control? The expectation should be that someone else, anyone but her, take on that responsibility?

My understanding is that she would be paying for her own birth control through her insurance much like I am paying for my own "free" prescriptions through my Blue Cross coverage.

Oh I get it. I also get that most Catholics are in favour of birth control. It really is unfortunate that your masters have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century but that is entirely irrelevant to my point. I know you are a little slow on the uptake so I will state it again. The woman wants her insurance company to pay for the pill, not the government. Rush and Ctn Morgan are wrong. Do you think you can extricate your head from your rectum long enough to wrap it around the concept.

From ABC news:- " Within weeks of hitting the U.S. market in 1998, more than half of Viagra prescriptions received health insurance coverage. If many women weren't already outraged that they had to pay for birth control out of pocket, they were infuriated at the preference given to the anti-impotence pills." This was in June 2002! At that time 20 states enacted laws whereby insurers must cover contraception and birth control expenses.

So, it comes down to the University denying women insurance coverage based on religion. If one is required to pay for insurance, then surely one should have a say in what that coverage will to be.

There a very definite discrepancy between what is considered as men's rights and those accorded to women. Regarding the argument that it is the right of a Catholic University to claim religious grounds re birth control; then certainly, a man impotency should also be regarded as an "act" of god and therefore, Viagra and the health exams for this problem should also be denied.

Rush....of course always uses personal attacks, in his rants. His "kill the messenger" rhetoric bit him in the ass (and the pocket book) this time.

In 2008, an estimated $1.9 billion was spent on publicly funded family-planning care — an investment that resulted in an estimated $7 billion in Medicaid savings for the cost of unplanned births.

Kind of puts the complaining about the public paying for "women's" sex in the category it belongs. Funny thing is, it takes male input to produce a child, but there are no adjectives for male ****s are there??

I see... So, if contraceptives were included on the policy, do you think that Flukes would be OK with paying an extra $1000 in premiums?.. You know, the actual cost of the pill?

The University is denying women anything on the insurance front.. It is the insurance company that has instituted the policy.. How is Georgetown Uni responsible for the insurer's policy. For that matter, why should the Uni or the Insurance company pay for Flukes' reproductive habits?

Why would she have to pay extra? Her insurance covers prescription medication up to $5000 yearly with co-pay...

I can't speak for her but I know that if I had to pay the total cost of my dental and prescriptions, I probably wouldn't bother with insurance in the first place as it would kind of defeat the purpose. I think either...

A) You don't understand how insurance works in which case you should bone up on it before you continue with this discussion

or

B) You simply can't admit that you and Rush are completely and utterly wrong, so you are grasping at every conceivable straw.

or

C) It's a little bit of both.

Tell me, do you have insurance and does your insurance premium cover the entire cost of the services you receive and only the cost of services you receive.?

Why shouldn't they?

Birth Control and Health Insurance (external - login to view)
The Facts

Over half of the states in the U.S. have enacted legislation requiring insurers that provide prescription drug benefits to also offer some birth control coverage. In 1998, women’s right proponents also won a major victory that required health insurance coverage for contraceptive drugs and devices for all federal employees. Many liken health insurers’ reluctance to cover contraceptives to their former hesitation to cover prenatal care. In fact, health insurers did not begin covering prenatal care until about 25 years ago. Here are some other interesting facts on insurance coverage for birth control:
  • 49% of large group health plans do not routinely cover birth control
  • 97% of large group plans cover prescription drugs, but only 33% of those plans cover oral contraceptives, which are the most popular method of reversible female birth control in the country
  • A paltry 15% of large group plans cover the five most common forms of birth control: oral contraceptives, diaphragms, IUDs, Depo Provera, and Norplant
  • Women age 15-44 pay 68% more for out-of-pocket healthcare costs than their male counterparts, largely due to the cost of reproductive healthcare

Yep. He plays to the low-average intelligence. It works for him. He isn't really an idiot, though. But he's not of above-average intelligence.

But his fans point to his popularity as proof of his abilities. These same fans, incidentally, disappear when asked about Justin Beiber's and Britney Spears' popularity. I've always wondered why popular equals good in the infotainment industry but not in the entertainment industry.

Well, it seems advertisers are growing tired of the right-wing Obama is a socialist hatefest. First Beck started hemorrhaging advertisers, eventually losing his TV show on FoxNews, now he's only on the radio. Now Limbaugh is losing advertisers:

And it's not like his ratings are going up...it's a bunch of old people who listen to that ideological shock jock talk radio. The median age is somewhere in the 55-65 range, and getting older and more grey all the time.
