jayhawk88: Goddamn it, I am so farking sick of half this farking world being so farking eager to tell me how farked everything is at every goddamn opportunity. These farking people who completely lose their shiat every time the goddamn pattern on their paper towels changes. "Ahhhhh everything is terrible all the time and it's all your fault because you don't do the same things your great-grandparents did AHHHHHHHHHH!" Fark you all you worthless farks! Just farking die already. If everything was like it was 100 years ago you'd be dead of an infection already and we wouldn't have to listen to you carry on like a goddamn mental patient. I don't farking care what you think you worthless shiatstain. Farking shut your hole, plop your damn ass down on your couch and watch Pat and Vanna turn the letters and go to bed at 7pm and let your farking brain wither and die a bit more because you're so goddamn afraid of having an original thought in it.


Oh, it's worse:  they can't disobey their parents or think of the world on its own terms.  It has to be through the lens of some sad ideology that represses everybody with the vague promise of a reward that can never be refuted:  if you live your life according to this sad religion, you can't complain if you get paradise or not.  It's a sucker's game that's not even faith, but coercion:  it's not like you have a real choice according to them.

And what does this promise?  Unfulfilled lives.  No sexual release.  No ability to do whatever you want, but boast about it like you do.  To treat people like objects and be feared (not respected, but feared) and allow this rage and bitterness to foster into making others feel exactly the same way.  Look at the fixation on sex these people have, and then realize that no real person is this fixated on sex unless they're so repressed that this comes out throughout their lives and in every aspect.

I would pity them, but I laugh.  These sad motherfarkers have never lived.  They're waiting to die so they can be free and do whatever they want.  It's the biggest con game in the world and nobody with a reasonable mind would bet on it unless they were forced into it in a time of weakness.  And as we can see, it leaves its victims ready to fall for anything at all.

FirstNationalBastard: I hear they actually believe that there's a man in the sky who watches over everything they do, and if they act according to some half-baked, self-serving set of rules the invisible sky man gave to another man who didn't know how to ask for directions, when they die they will go to a magical sky land and live on clouds with winged midgets who play harps and get everything they ever wanted. But, if they act in a manner contrary to the sky man's rules, they will go to a dark, smelly place full of fire, and be sodomized with hot pokers by by a red guy with a pointy tail.

And don't get me started on how they also believe sky man had a son who became a zombie.


Oh it gets better.

That guy (I think his name is Yeah-Weigh or something) was the one who made the dark and smelly place in the first place, and one of his rules is that you have to love him.

He's a yandere - he loves you, but if you don't love him back he'll have you sodomized with hot pokers for all eternity in a torture chamber he himself built for exactly that purpose.

In the tidal wave of derp, there were a few droplets of truth.

1) When society can't emotionally handle larger problems, it focuses on feel-good small problems to solve.

2) Dr. Gosnell's crimes are much more heinous than Michael Vick's, yet the media vilified Vick to a much greater degree.  Vick is a celebrity, but still - this is bad.

3) Society is too obsessed with celebrities, in general.  Why do we care who public officials are sleeping with?  As long as their jobs aren't compromised, they should be left alone.

4) People are scared to death to have a national conversation on race.

I'm still struggling with this paragraph:

A federal judge in New York recently ruled that the so-called morning-after birth-control pill must be made available to all "women" regardless of age or parental consent, and without a prescription. The judge determined that it was unfair for those under 16 to be denied access to such emergency contraceptives. But if vast numbers of girls younger than 16 need after-sex options to prevent unwanted pregnancies, why isn't there a flood of statutory-rape charges being lodged against older teenagers for having consensual relations with younger girls?

As far as I can tell, he believes that sperm only becomes active on a man's 18th birthday, because otherwise this paragraph makes absolutely no farking sense.

John Buck 41: TerminalEchoes: Um, Sandra Fluke DID want tax payer-funded birth control.

That was my understanding as well.



Perhaps I can help...

"A friend of mine, for example, has polycystic ovarian syndrome

<http://www.nichd.nih.gov/health/topics/Polycystic_Ovary_Syndrome.c fm>;;,

and she has to take prescription birth control to stop cysts from

growing on her ovaries. Her prescription is technically covered by

Georgetown's insurance because it's not intended to prevent pregnancy.


"Unfortunately, under many religious institutions and insurance plans,

it wouldn't be. There would be no exception for other medical needs. And

under Sen. Blunt's amendment, Sen. Rubio's bill or Rep. Fortenberry's

bill there's no requirement that such an exception be made for these

medical needs.


"When this exception does exist, these exceptions don't accomplish their

well-intended goals because when you let university administrators or

other employers rather than women and their doctors dictate whose

medical needs are legitimate and whose are not, women's health takes a

back seat to a bureaucracy focused on policing her body.


"In 65% of the cases at our school, our female students were

interrogated by insurance representatives and university medical staff

about why they needed prescription and whether they were lying about

their symptoms.


"For my friend and 20% of the women in her situation, she never got the

insurance company to cover her prescription. Despite verifications of

her illness from her doctor, her claim was denied repeatedly on the

assumption that she really wanted birth control to prevent pregnancy.


She's gay. So clearly polycystic ovarian syndrome was a much more urgent

concern than accidental pregnancy for her.


"After months paying over $100 out-of-pocket, she just couldn't afford

her medication anymore, and she had to stop taking it."

THIS. She wasn't arguing for universal coverage--she was arguing that if you pay for it, you should get it WITHOUT having your boss sign a permission slip like it's frickin' high school and you want Mommy to let you go to the prom. A goal which I personally find a good one.

I read much of what she said before Congress. While she did cite certain debilitating female-specific conditions that require birth control to regulate (which I'm all for, for the record), Sanda herself didn't claim to have any such conditions. To me, she was bemoaning the fact that she had to shell out three thousand dollars for her own birth control. That's the only part I have issue with.

As opposed to it being covered on prescription like... thousands of other pills or medicines. She wasn't asking for others to pay for it. She wanted it covered on her insurance. That she was paying for.

Never mind that she was primarily making an argument that there was a non-pregnancy usage to the pill which was being blocked.

So what you're saying is that Sandra Fluke was unqualified to testify as to the non-contraceptive uses of certain medication because she does not have the conditions treatable by that medicine?

Sorry, but being unable to empathize with others and being dicks to them, only to turn around and change your stance once you yourself are affected is almost entirely a conservative domain.

First.. I want tax payer funded Birth Control and I am a republican... way cheaper than the alternative, believe me. Condoms and pills are way cheaper than schools, jails, and welfare.

Second... I think Sandra Fluke probably wants Tax Funded Birth Control Too, but that is not the reason she is now famous.

texanjeff: Um, Sandra Fluke DID want tax payer-funded birth control.

Uh...No.

She was speaking of behalf of birth control being denied on insurance plans in cases where that is the prescribed medication to control other issues such as polyps and other unfortunate conditions of the hoo-hoo

First.. I want tax payer funded Birth Control and I am a republican... way cheaper than the alternative, believe me. Condoms and pills are way cheaper than schools, jails, and welfare.

Second... I think Sandra Fluke probably wants Tax Funded Birth Control Too, but that is not the reason she is now famous.

The above is.


What makes you believe that?

I can't speak for texanjeff, but I would suppose that Fluke, being a reasonable person, is in favor of single-payer healthcare, which would include tax-funded birth control.

That's possible, but it still has nothing to do with her testimony about Georgetown's approval process for allowing students to use their school insurance to pay for birth control.

/Fun fact:  Georgetown employees have no problem using their insurance to cover birth control.  It's only a matter of conscience when their students want to use their insurance to cover birth control.

Lionel Mandrake: Was there a point to all that?


To juxtapose the disingenuousness of modern Irresponsible Man. The essay was a masterpiece.
