Young Turk Republican wants a viable Republican party in the future. Too bad he comes off as a melanin enhanced Gomer Pyle.

Contraception OTC? Eliminates the whole kinda "we're a religious institution and we don't want to support birth control health insurance" thing, right?

What could go wrong?
 
2012-12-15 12:10:33 PM
This is the kind of mental gymnastics one has to go through to be a viable candidate in todays GOP. It's really unbelieveable, and int he end it's actually bad for America.

Don't worry, he's a republican. During the primaries he'll deny he ever said

Are BCP's hormones?
Shouldn't they be purchased only after consultation with doctors?
Does Jindal understand what he is advocating?
 
2012-12-15 12:30:07 PM
Hearing someone from the right wing advocate rational policy is so shocking I can't help but start looking for some ulterior motive. Good job, Jindal. Too bad you've destroyed your political career.

These are times that try Republican souls. The sunshine libtard and the summer RINO will shrink from the service of their party but he that stands by it now, deserves all the lobbyist money he can stuff in his overseas bank accounts.

Birth control is OTC in most countries. It's incredibly safe.

Jindal's only advocating this because Republicans have been getting hammered over contraception and making them OTC takes that issue off the table.
 
2012-12-15 12:35:41 PM
I'm OK with this.

You know what that consultation boils down to?

Woman: I'd like a Rx for birth control pills
Doctor: Okay.
Doctor: If you're a smoker you should probably quit. I was going to say that anyway but since you're thinking about BCP I'll say it twice.

OTC/BTC hormonal birth control is probably not very dangerous to people. It might have some environmental impact, but I doubt it will be significantly different than the current state of affairs. I'm completely fine with this, birth control id demonstrably good for society. Also more birth control means more sex and some of that is bound to trickle down to me, even here in Mom's basement.

The real question in my mind is, can't a large dose of normal birth control pills be used as a morning after pill?
 
2012-12-15 12:43:32 PM
Well that's all fine and good, but where are people going to pick up their volcano monitoring services?
 
2012-12-15 12:44:43 PM
If it's OTC it isn't part of a health care plan. Then it's a non-issue about religiously affiliated organizations paying for healthcare.

And finally we get to a part of a George Carlin routine:

Birth control pills. That's part of the drug scene, isn't it? You have to count them. The entire female population of the US is being used as the guinea pigs to find out if birth control pills are gonna have any side effects or not. Isn't that nice. Really, if every lady who used them gets to 61 and one leg gets shorter than the other one...better call the pills back. Birth control pills are still on prescription. You still need a note to get laid. It's so bad. Not only do you need a note, you gotta go to one guy to get the note, and you gotta bring it to another guy. Everybody's in on it, y'know. Ladies must feel silly goin' up.. "Here's my note. Hmm.." "Oh, that's what you're doing at home, eh? Well, uh, we're keeping a record of it here in the store. Late at night, I read them."

Someday, birth control pills will come off prescription and when they do, they'll need those cute little catchy names that the patent medicines have. They'll sell birth control pills at the corner drug store, there'll be one cent sales at Rexall. There'll be attractive little cartons, merchandising campaigns, a special Christmas package. They'll be right up there with the Schrafft's two cent mints at the cash register. "Take your change and birth control!" And they'll need those cute little names, names that describe what the product does. Names like...well, we have so many patent medicines today- Sleep-eze, No-Doz, Dentu-Grip, Ora-Fix.. Sounds a little freaky that one, I dunno.. (gay voice:) "Listen, may I have an Ora-Fix?" "Not without a note. Hell, no."

Someday birth control pills will need name like Preg-Not! Doctors prefer Embry-No! Here's one for the ladies: Nary a Carry! Something lofty and poetic: Nay, Family Way! Something earthy and crude: Mom Bomb. Something for the youngsters: Junior...Miss! Here's a real man's product: Inconceivable! Mommy Not, Fetus Fail, Kiddie Kill, Poppa Stopper, whatever you want. Womb Broom, Humpty Dumpty, y'know. They're clever guys. I wouldn't be surprised if they come up with a birth control pill that doesn't work all the time and call it Baby-Maybe! "Available in the six-pack, the sex-pack and the handy shack-pack for you weekenders! One for home, one for the office and one for the glove compartment, guys! And don't forget to save those wrappers!" Remember that, you always save 60 wrappers and get some azalea seeds.

Here's a phone call that will never take place. A common phone call that will never occur again once birth control is universal. Once everyone had a way to plan, no bachelor will ever have to fear this phone call again. And they fear it. So do married men. It's a scary call if you're fertile at all.

(ring) "Hello"

"Hello, Dave?"

"Yeah, this is Dave. Who is this?"

"This is Jane."

"Jane? Jane who?"

"Jane"

"Jane Jane?"

"Jane. You met me at a party about 6 to 8 weeks ago and you said I was a real good sport."

"Oh, Christ yeah. How are you, Jane?"

"Pregnant! And I'm gonna jump out the window!"

"Say, you are a good sport, aren't ya, Jane?"

It is a male sexist pig joke, really.

Hey, ya know what I need? I need to thank ya very much. Thanks for being here, man, and thanks for the use of your head on an early show like this, I appreciate it. Don't forget, it takes two fingers to make the peace sign just like it takes two people to make love. When you go like this, you're jerkin' off. Good night folks.

Republican dissonance has always baffled me. On one hand, birth control is bad; on the other, having too many kids that one can't support is also bad...

/ good for Jindal
// hope he still has a political future...
 
2012-12-15 01:00:04 PM
Maybe he wants to run for national office as a Republican without conceding the majority of the female vote to his opponent on day one. It's a crazy idea, but it just might work...
 
2012-12-15 01:02:35 PM
I love how the right wing is already trying to portray itself as "reforming it's image". Like, "Hey, we tried to cast 47% out to thrash in the void if we won but we can still be lovers, right?

Like the sourpuss gop of 2012

But I thought life began two weeks before conception.

Therefore, preventing implantation equals abortion, and abortion is MURDER, and Bobby Jindal is facilitating a HOLOCAUST OF AMERICAN BABIES.

No, Piyush, just stop.

It's too late for you to try to salvage your Old Brownpeoplehating White Guy party.

It was too late the day that floating fat man got into his slutrant.

This is not how it goes for my GF. Granted, there's some other things going on there that won't be true for the majority of women, but it's definitely not how it goes for her.
 
2012-12-15 01:17:20 PM
Since he went on that secret pilgrimage to Mecca with President Fartbongo, you shouldn't call him Piyush.

His proper name is B. Piyush Jindal bin Muslin al Hadj.

Yeah, doctors are going to be hesitant to give up that cash cow from healthy young women.

Funny how being a realist because one has to be to not fail as governor of a state basically disqualifies someone for the GOP presidential nomination.

Because charging insurance companies 25 pct more than they charge out of pocket customers is totally going to happen.

MFAWG: Because charging insurance companies 25 pct more than they charge out of pocket customers is totally going to happen.


It's not the cost of the pills, it's the cost of the consult. If young women are only coming in for the consult and Rx, they can kiss that business goodbye once birth control is over the counter. Still, apparently the OCOB is behind the idea so maybe it will get some traction.
