(Talking Points Memo)   Sean Hannity proposes 'adopt-a-woman' program for birth control coverage. Great idea. And to simplify things the government could step in and adopt ALL women in need and cover their birth control. Maybe through a special affordable care plan   (talkingpointsmemo.com) divider line 152

Your sacrifice is appreciated. In due course, I hereby pledge to refer the 18-24 year old ladies to your expertise. Moreover, I will do my part by covering the MILF demographic myself. We are true patriots.

God bless MILFmerica!

Maybe Hannity should start a similar adoption program for people who want to punch him in the face. There are probably a lot of people out there who can't get their insurance to pay for punching a smug douche bag in the face, so there's probably a real need.

I haven't thought this all the way through, but I'm sure he'd get a lot of takers

providing birth control is much cheaper than not providing it.  This has nothing to do with costing anyone money.  It has to do with saving money.  If you want to make arguments about excluding birth control from insurance you need to start it with "We want you to pay more in order to deny coverage to women because ......"
 
2014-01-28 06:40:15 PM
Also I find this funny because we've been calling around to different pharmacies all week.  The wife got switched to a new pill after bad reactions with a dozen other ones over the last decade.  It costs 85-130 depending where you go.  So no asshole they aren't all $9 a month.

No, no, no, the invisible man said "Be fruitful and multiply" and this is translated to "Birth control is the debil".  It's not money, it's Gods will.

Also, they don't want Yazmin to cock-block their second coming.  As if God chose a woman to give birth to Jesus again, but accidentally chose a woman taking birth control and then said, "Oh well, I tried!"

Why should the role of government always be to simplify things?  The entire point of those things is they required complex solutions.  If it was simple to do them well no one would ever advocate the government doing them.

I was born in the 50's and birth control was simply not discussed.  If I am not mistaken it was banned in some states and needed a prescription in others.  That's why the Pill was such a shock to the white men running America.

It's discrimination against men.

Men don't get free medical stuff that women have to pay for.

Hmm, a private health organization that uses private donations in order to provide low-cost reproductive health options for women? Can't imagine how any institution like that would draw conservative ire. Somebody should get started on that, since it would be a great help for people who want to plan for becoming parents.

Oh, people like Hannity and his army of derpy morons don't care about that. It's about punishing uppity women who have the gall to enjoy sexytiems and won't submit to their husbands while wearing nighties.

It's amazing how dumb some of the shiat the GOP is saying about birth control is.  LIke what Rush "Boner Pills for Dominican Boys" Limbaugh said about Sandra Fluke being such a slut she needs the government to buy birth control for her only makes sense if you assume that a woman must take a birth control pill every time she has sex.  Which is, obviously, not the case.

Huckabees's whole "Uncle Sugar" derp last week had much the same tenor, I think.  And any woman who's been on birth control, and any man who's known a woman who's been on birth control, knows it's bullshiat and completely wrong.  The only people I can imagine might go for this is maybe old people who were already done with farking long before the Pill came on the market.

i'm not sure most Republicans even understand that sex with women can lead to pregnancy.  hells, or that 'birth control' has medical uses other than preventing pregnancy.  the GOP just knows that women are sluts and sex is dirty and JESUS said they had to stop enjoying all pleasure in life.

Like I have said before: If any private group wants to take up and pay for something the government pays for now. I would 100% then before removing the government handling it. I believe most liberals would believe the same *=(as long as they handled 100% of it)

However I have never heard of any takers on this even though time and time they pretend the private sector could do this more efficiently.

If so why don't they do private programs to take over government ones and then have the government agency repealed? (why? because they really know they wouldn't be able to have it funded voluntarily and it's just a BS reason they use to get rid of government programs)
 
2014-01-28 07:52:19 PM
If you adopt a schizophrenic, do you have to send her multiple boxes of birth control or just one box? What if she thinks she's Genghis Khan and needs peter pills? Is that covered by insurance? Also, I seem to have read about a young woman who met her unfortunate end in 1990 via a bad adoption.

There are a shocking number of people out there that couldn't figure out a circle unless it was explained to them.  Their hippocampus just isn't up to it.  Logic simply escapes them, as do simple facts.  They need to be told what to believe, and they'll believe the damnedest things.  Oftentimes contradictory, even.  Especially delivered from a father or mother figure of authority.

So sad.

FTA: "Why should especially Catholics, and people of faith, and Christians and people of other faiths that this is against their religious teachings, and condoms are relatively inexpensive."

I don't get this argument.  Catholics, and most people of faith, are generally against killing other people.  As far as religious rules go, it's kinda near the top.  Yet there never seems to be a religious problem with paying taxes for fighting wars.

I'm Catholic, but I try my best not to use it as an excuse to say why I disagree with a political stance.  If you're against something, have the balls to stand against without hiding behind your religion.

Marcus Aurelius: Is Sean giving up his boner pills?
No?
Then he should just fark right off, the smarmy little jackass.


I'm all for free birth control, or at least incredibly cheap and always available if it can't be free, but stop equating birth control with erectile dysfunction simply because they both involve the reproductive system.  ED is a real medical problem, being pregnant isn't a medical problem for most women.  They're just not 2 equatable ailments for this argument.

But that's all beside the point because women's birth control is an incredibly smart thing to pay for, either through insurance or the government.  There are a dozen good reasons to pay for BC for women and the only reason not to is "whores, filthy whores that my Bible warned me about."

I wonder what percentage of GOP voters are actually voting their own economic, social self-interests?
Two, maybe three percent? Certainly no more. It's the con-job of the century, but it has a weakness - almost all the people ignorant and stupid enough to go for it are old, and dying off. The hick-sticks where they live are being depopulated as they become dispensible to their masters. The GOP is freaking and flailing now because they can see their hopeless future. They are screwed,. and more Americans come to hate them every day.
95 % of "conservatives" are self-loathing poors. Let's face it there aren't that many rich people, and they get fewer and richer every day.
