Posted on aintnogod.com was this excellent comment by ungodly (at: http://aintnogod.com/ipb/topic/7280-rush-limpblob-vs-attractive-smart-young-lady/)

"The #1 radio sweetheart of the 1% (and a drug addicted ex-con billionaire himself) Rush Limpblob has made it his business for the last 3 or 4 days to vilify and condemn a young lady whose name he could not manage to get correct after all of his research into her moral character.

"Ms Fluke responded to the bowl of Jello-like commentator in a perfectly civil and professional way when she called Limpblob's comments “outside the bounds of civil discourse.” Well, yes, and that certainly was the goal of the super wealthy large object, Limpblob needs to get his name on the Nightly News to keep refreshing his supply of frustrated authoritarians losing control in a free and open society.

"Today Ms Fluke received a conciliatory phone call from he POTUS.

"I think this young lady is as fresh as an ocean breeze in August, I like her style, I like the ideas she presents, and I like her calm way of looking stupid in the face and declaring softly that it does not seem very nice.

"Is there a Sandra Fluke fan club I can join?"

I would totally like to associate myself with these excellent comments! Ms. Fluke certainly exemplifies the essence of the song, "I won't back down!" and she is helping work for a very, very important cause -- women's health issues!

I think she is absolutely great! She is to the point, does not overreact, speaks important truth to self-important power, and she is willing to note that the emperor has no clothes (and also that Rush has little sense and no civility or empathy).

Sign me up for her fan club too!

Yours,

Caleb

The Chinese are exploring space, building the largest infrastructure on the planet, and selling us everything we own, and we have whinning a college student that is complaining and demands the government mandate an insurance company pay for her birth control.

A Target Store less than 3 miles from her school currently sells a month's supply of birth control pills for only $9/ month to people who do not have insurance plans covering contraceptives.

God help this country. We are totally lost.

Reproduction is required for continuance of the human race, but allowing people to control aspects of reproduction has allowed women to control more of their own future, to help families succeed, etc. If we want to further progress, women -- together with enlightened partners -- should be able to make their own decisions rather than be guided by our own Taliban wannabees.

Irony is the fact that so many men are willing to deny women access to birth control methods but still breathe not a word about doing away with Viagra.

Sandra Fluke was actually testifying for these measures as a way of helping prevent health problems - not so much as birth control measures. One of her acquaintances who had insurance through the law school she attended lost an ovary to ovarian cysts as she could not get the preventative medications because the hierarchy of the law school refused to provide the medications to the students, even though the same medications are allowed by the health plan to the school's employees. Also, the school requires that all of its students sign up for the health plan, which does not cover contraceptives and related medications.

Even Fox News offers its employees insurance which cover contraception.

Seems like so many uncaring people want to roll back the progress and simply insult those in need.

The Wonderful Rachel Maddow had on as a guest last night Ms. Connie Schultz, the wife of Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio. Ms. Schultz, a winner of the Pulitzer prize and many other awards as well, said that when Limbaugh insulted Ms. Fluke, he was also insulting her own two daughters as well as other women of child-bearing age. She said that she was very angry about this, and if Limbaugh and others think this emotional reaction on the part of women will dissipate, then they are very much mistaken.

As for the straw-man of cheap birth-control pills, a guy on a corner selling you something does not follow your medical status, does not know about drug interactions, has not been with you in good times and bad -- that's one reason why primary care physicians are so important. Hormone replacement, contraceptives and other medications have to be carefully monitored and administered and this clearly should be a basic requirement for all women's insurance programs.

98% of Catholic women admit to using birth control at least some time in their lives.

Republicans keeping this issue open will only further enrage those with open minds and further tarnish the Republican party in the view of so many Americans.

The oh-so tepid response of the Republican leaders to LImbaugh's outrageous statements is appalling -- these leaders think we should stand up to Iran and declare war on that country and they cannot even stand up to the windbag on the radio! Sure says a great deal about their lack of courage! Among other things, Rush said that Ms. Fluke was being sexually active in middle school, that he wants to see her sex tapes if she has contraceptives given to her, etc. As a father of a daughter of about Ms. Fluke's age I am appalled at what Rush and his supporters are saying on this.

The right-wing, foaming at the mouth bloggers add insult to injury and are also damaging whatever Republican honor is left. Same too with the men advocating vaginal probes, forced ultra-sound, denial of abortion services and a wish to return to pre-contraception days, to prevent others from having prenatal screening, etc.

Keep this issue alive and help reveal the right-wing frauds for the Taliban-clones they really are!

Yours,

Caleb

If anyone would bother to read her Sandra Fluke’s testimony it was about a friend who was using the pill as hormonal therapy to control cystic ovarian disease. It had nothing to do with birth control but medical treatment. When her friend could not afford the medication anymore she had to stop which resulted in a ruptured cyst and resulted in removal of ovary which eventually resulted in onset of early menopause. Sex was never discussed by Ms. Fluke. I bet you THISSA that your insurance covers all your prescription medicines, so what is the difference between this prescription medicine and your Viagra prescription?

Dispite your minor flaws, and unnaturally strong interest in reproductive organs, we still appreciate your interest in joining the Tea Party. Glad to have you.

As for Ms.Fluke

Fluke is a liar: during her testimony, she claimed that birth control had cost a stunning $3,000 during her three years of law school. Unfortunately, it turns out that Walmart and a nearby Target have offered $9-a-month birth control since 2007. Not to mention the fact that there appear to be four Planned Parenthood offices within walking distance of Georgetown Law School, where they seem to dispense contraceptives like candy.

Fluke is a kook: among her policy positions , she argued that insurers be required to cover sex-change surgery and other "transgender services".

Fluke is a professional abortion rights activist: and that's her own description of herself - "A Feminist, Gender, & Sexuality Studies major at Cornell, [she] is also a past president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice."

Fluke is an activist and a plant.

THISAA, I looked at your references - They are laughable. For example the last one is a pro life site founded and funded by regioulous radio stations. Did you listen to Thom's prorgram, he shreded most of this information.

THISAA - AA - Alcoholics Anonymous? The AA is reflection of your attack by way of Cons vs. Conservatives.

Are you having trouble with your liver causing delusions? You are making so much shit about Fluke it is not funny. Have you made your aluminum hats if the Democratic Party is able to set up Rush like this.

If the Democratic Party is this crafty, you might as well give up.

By the way, you can take your Tea Party and place in area that is not exposed to sun light and be the other place where you store post digestive material besides your mouth.

You make all these claims about Fluke but beside Rush and Oreally can you site a source of material. THISAA, you often refer to stuff that has as much creditability as "Alice in Wonderland" while I can reference my material including text books used in medical classes.

It is amazing when all else fails the right goes for the personal attacks.

Sandra Fluke is a heroine to me -- close to my daughter in my mind. What a wonderful young lady!

How thoughtful, how considerate, and how I would want to be in a country informed by her sympathies.

And if anyone slandered my daughter as Rush slandered her, I would punch him repeatedly. How dare these yahoos pick on young women who DARE to speak up?

And frankly how I wish Sandra could tell all of us about the needs of young women, of families and others, and help us walk in the shoes of others.

Yours,

Caleb

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
