impaler: L82DPRT: Fluke may be a slut but she's a liar too.

/"...a Target store only 3 miles from the law school currently sells a month's supply of birth control pills for only $9 to people who do not have insurance plans covering contraceptives.

That would make the total cost for birth control pills for a student who decided to use them for all three years of law school just $324." (new window)

Some women need Yaz - $60/month.

For 4 years undergrad, 2 years law = $4,320

So she did lie. It can be worse than $3000 for some women.


Generally am not a big entitlement fan but on contraception the gubmint should make it rain all up in here.

Rubbers.

Pills.

Whatever for whomever.

ESPECIALLY for those that can afford it least.

There's no such thing as a man-slut, just men and boys. People who treat their sex partners like objects are boys. Doesn't matter how many you have.

Being a slut, and treating people like objects are two different issues.

Rush Limbaugh treats objects like women, man.

Truly you are an intellect to be reckoned with. From your link:

There is no question that Limbaugh's attacks on this law student are reprehensible and outrageous.


Unfortunately, for those looking for a legal vindication for Rush, the real fight is occurring in the court of public opinion, not in a quibble over what constitutes libel or slander. And he is losing the public opinion battle handily.

Lunaville: Dansker: aselene: She said she spent $3,000 on contraception one summer. How could she require so much contraception if she wasn't constantly having sex?

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

When you use oral contraception, "The Pill", you take the same number of pills regardles of whether you have daily orgies, sleep with your boyfriend twice a month or don't have sex at all.

It's true. Indeed, I once broke up with a guy because he didn't put out enough to justify the expense of my birth control.

I sincerely hope none of my children ever meet anyone who is as mean as I was when I was young.

So very weak.

You stopped too early.

oops.

Still, just makes her a bad shopper. Not really enough to justify a three day attack.


Not to mention that it attacks a specific piece of evidence she used to support her position that the exemption of religious institutions from the specific minimum coverage requirements needed to be met in order to participate in the Insurance Exchange can and will have a negative impact on women in general. You'll note that she said "can cost $3,000." And not, "Costs me $3,000" Her statement has fark all to do with this or that place that provides this or that service.

It's a common problem when having these sweeping debates. Forest... Trees... It's a problem in damn near every process driven business.

"The problem with this process is X."
"Do you have an example?"
"Yes. Because of X, Y occurred which led to Z. In the absence of X, our process would have caught Y before it became a problem at all and Z never would have happened."
"Well X only happened because so-and-so was out of the office that day when the PO was entered and the system didn't accept the new PO revision level when it was entered by her back-up who doesn't have the required permissions, so when I received the confirmation for the PO the Work Order had already been backflushed without the widgets actually having been built so the status line for that WO didn't match the status line for the affiliated PO, so when you printed your report, the dates were not reflective of the current state. I don't think this can all be blamed on X, do you?"

"You asked for an example, that is one. Would you like another?"

"Well, I think that really represents an exception rather than the rule, don't you?"

"mm-hmm. What were we actually trying to accomplish with this meeting again?"

Here is your misunderstanding. Nobody gets their talking points from BM. Most around here think he is an arsehole. Whenever he says something stupid folks around here do not defend him. In fact it's quite the opposite, they call him on the stupid crap he says. Nobody ever defends BM with a "B-b-b-but Rush". No politician. No politician has ever apologized to BM. Bringing up BM is changing the subject because you KNOW FOR FACT that you can't possibly defend the atrocious shiat that has been spewing out of Rush Limpballs mouth the last week. It's lame and I know you can do better. Hell, your on my favs because I think you make intelligent arguments most of the time. So please STFU about BM.

This is funnier than most wing-nut spin. Hopefully Rush will be as insignificant to the Republican party as Maher is to the Democratic soon. Probably not, even though it is a clear case of libel, but one can hope.

I don't think there has been so much concerted effort to push Bill Maher into the spotlight since Politically Incorrect got cancelled after 9/11.

I have literally seen or heard his name dragged into this debate 50 times in the last 24 hours.


I've wondered how the media was going to frame Rush's grotesque misogyny as 50% Left/Democrat/Obama's fault in the name of "fair and balanced". Looks like they're going to go with the Maher angle, no matter how laughable it is.
 
2012-03-07 04:05:11 PM  

Mugato: gilgigamesh: I'll admit that Stewart is a major political voice for the left; sad as that sounds it is true.

I really don't see it like that. I'm sure that Stewart leans to the left but all he really does on his show is play video of the right making asshole hypocrites of themselves and then calls him on it. Is it his fault or does that make him a leftist if the right can't stop being complete and utter douchebags? Stewart doesn't run everything through the spin cycle like Fox News, he simply plays back their own words and calls them out on it.

There's a difference between that and the cartoonist Fox News that makes the news breaks in Starship Troopers look "fair and balanced". If you're pissed about Stewart being too leftist, tell your right wing masters to stop being so Goddamned stupid and easy comedy fodder.


i almost agree with this - right up til i don't. i will say that by comparison, he is as close to an actual 'news anchorman' than anyone on fox.

that being said, he does more than just 'lean to the left' - especially when it comes to the whole discussion of state employees and the burden they cause to the states they work for.
he's as knee jerk as anyone, not ever (that i recall) has he given any weight to the idea that retirement programs and administrative pay scales are breaking many communities. no. he just sarcastically points out that teachers must be driving Ferrari's and living in castles & that is why "the right" has issues.

He apologized for using two words, not for asking her to post sex tapes or for misconstruing the intent of her testimony, nor for claiming she slept around and wanted the taxpayers to pay for her sex life.

So, basically, he really didn't apologize at all, which makes your second claim, that libs don't have to apologize, not only contrafactual, but moot.

Legally liable? Debatable.

That was kind of the point of your link, one that very few people are debating you on.

/Defend this scumbag makes me feel I should be paid for this. *Here's your softball* What does that make me?

If the man is a scumbag, and I agree with that characterization, then why would you bother to defend him at all? All this is doing is making you appear to be as unethical as the man you call a scumbag.

I'll take a guess why - because the whole "teachers are overpaid" idea (and most State/local employees are teachers) is laughable.

If a class of people were overpaid, you'd see intense competition for the available jobs, overqualified people taking them, and generally a "talent drain" into that class. Because the labor market is a market.

Do we see anything like that in the job market for teachers (or State employees in general)? I rarely hear complaints that State employees are overqualified...

Not almost, it is staggering. This is 2012, not 1972. Sebilius says that churches are exempt but businesses run by churches must provide insurance, and that includes birth control. Bishops freak out and scream about how their religion is being persecuted and get a compromise; you don't have to pay for it, but the insurance company has to provide it. Rush goes on the air and says the tax-payer is the "pimp" for this "prostitute" because a woman testified that her roommates lack of access to the pill caused her to lose an ovary.

It doesn't even farking add up but now you have dickwads claiming that they don't want to pay for anyone else's sex life as if someone had actually proposed and legislated it.

Diogenes: vpb: Considering that Rush has a major impact on the Republican party and has been a major speaker at events like CPAC, what would the Democratic party be like is Maher had the sort of influence Rush has? Or any at all.

I think the more interesting comparison is how the GOP regards Jon Stewart. Rush is just an entertainer (their get of jail free card), but Stewart is a major political voice for the Left. Their hypocrisy knows no bounds.


Until today I was unaware Bill Maher still has his own talk show, which according to teh innertubez airs for one hour a week on a premium cable channel I don't subscribe to.
Jon Stewart has a comedy show that runs a half hour a night four nights a week, on a cable channel I do happen to subscribe to.
Rush Limbaugh pollutes the publicly-owned airwaves for three hours a day, 5 days a week.

Bill Maher total broadcast hours (including his old show): ~271 hours
Jon Stewart total broadcast hours: ~1,801
Rush Limbaugh total broadcast hours: ~18,270

Bill Maher format: Humorous/satirical monologue + topical panel discussion featuring panelists from across the political spectrum + sketch comedy + interview
Jon Stewart format: Topical satire + interview primarily of authors and entertainers promoting their work, but also political figures from across the political spectrum
Rush Limbaugh format: "Liberal"-bashing + race/sex/religion-baiting + right-wing misinformation and propaganda

They're all pretty much three sides of the same coin.

I actually understand where Maher is coming from, considering he once was fired for a similar incident (he said the hijackers on 9/11 weren't cowards and it got his ABC TV show canceled). That doesn't mean his opinion is the correct one (far from it), but I comprehend why he has such an opinion, and it has nothing to do with the content of Rush's statements.

Gosling: Rush: "There is no alternative to oil." It's not big business. It's just that there's nothing better than it. "We are blessed to have it."


Um, that happens to be an accurate statement. For transportation, there are few alternatives to oil in most situations. Pure electric cars can't go on road trips and cost twice as much or more to purchase than the equivalent gas powered car. There's no such thing as an electric intra-cty bus, or airplane, or big rig, or cargo ship. There are natural gas powered vehicles, but they typically aren't used for long range trips and natural gas is a polluting hydrocarbon just like oil.

(Do not bring electrical generation into this discussion. There are effectively zero oil powered power plants in the continental United States, excluding emergency on site diesel generators that come on during a black out.)

i'll agree that many of the state employees certainly don't ACT overqualified. nor does the product of their work show any aspect of being "overqualified"

but you are making my point for me. he latches on to "teachers are only paid (let's say) $50 k a year... that isn't getting rich."

yes.. no shiat. my problem lies in the retirements that these folks receive. in my state there are people retiring at over 100% of their pay & at earlier ages than people in the private sector. that is a burden to the state - especially when we hear about a proposed new tax, so the poor children won't be left in the snow and can go to school.

obviously it's tough to sell new taxes these days, but i'm supposed to feel guilty and say 'yes, tax me more please' yet nobody would ever dare suggest re formatting the retirement program of the state employees. o no... they were "promised" that retirement package. that is actually what they say.

newsflash: the rest of the world has taken a big shiat on itself and we all have to re adjust. how come public employees are immune to this?

& if you don't think there is hot competition for these jobs, you are so delusional it's painful.

inner ted: you are making my point for me. he latches on to "teachers are only paid (let's say) $50 k a year... that isn't getting rich."

And usually ineligible for Social Security.

Retirement packages are part of compensation. If those packages are too extravagant then those people are indeed overpaid. And therefore overqualified, postings never go unfilled, etc. - all those market effects would come into play.

Check government employment numbers - since ARRA ran out about a million State and local employees are out of work altogether. That's hardly "immune".

inner ted: & if you don't think there is hot competition for these jobs, you are so delusional it's painful.


Again, how is it that that hot competition doesn't translate into people leaving the private sector in droves for that cushy, overpaid government employment? Why aren't State employees the cream of the crop?

DrippinBalls: How in the hell did this get submitted? BFD. Maher sends obama a mil, rush sends romney $$$. As much as a POS as limbaugh is, maher is no better. Did the same farking thing.

Why are you mentioning Maher in a Limbaugh thread? I guess it would be appropriate where Maher says something about this matter (as noted above), but otherwise I can only guess that the motivation is partisan and obfuscatory in nature.

Because I damn well felt like it - if you're too damn stupid to figure it out, and the related connections, stay out of the politics tabs.

I see. It appears from all evidence in front of me that this because you feel some strange need to defend Rush Limbaugh, ineptly or otherwise.

Maybe you should ask yourself why you feel it is important to defend the honor of a man who behaves so abominably.


Maybe, moron, you should go back and read the original post. Are you that damn stupid? To me, both are POS and no difference between the sacks of crap.
Read the first damn post, sh*t4brains. Or, are you a two-faced hypocrite who wants to defend maher but condemn limbaugh.

Rush said she had men lined up around the block, suggested her vagina was so full of semen she needed additional birth control to prevent being fertilized. He said this was based on her testimony. "Slut" and "prostitute" imply specific behaviors. He asked for video of pornographic activity. He directed all this at one particular woman repeatedly for three days.

You will now describe a similar attack from Maher.

Or not.

Again, you bring up Maher in a thread about Mr. Limbaugh. Why?

Is there some causality between Maher's actions and Limbaugh's that I am not aware of?
