Fluke Flunkies Flunk Basic Contraception…and Freedom

August 9, 2012   ·   By   ·   4 Comments

Flunking contraceptionRemember Georgetown University student and feminist activist Sandra Fluke who testified to congress that she was having so much sex that she needed the government to force others to surrender their religious liberty to pay for her $1,000-a-year contraception bill?

Well, she’s campaigning for The One, and Caleb Bonham of Revealing Politics interviewed some rally attenders about this important issue.

We get some real gems that pass for “pearls of wisdom” on the Left.

For example:

  •  The demand that government “stay out of our bedrooms”…in conjunction that the government pay for or mandate that others pay for contraceptive products we use in our bedrooms.
  • A lot of people don’t have the “privilege” of affording the $9 a month (or one trip to Hardees) for contraceptives (and apparently can’t use other even cheaper methods, and definitely can’t exercise self-control), so we have no choice but to trample the religious rights of others. Besides, people are starving in America because of the lack of government-funded/mandated contraception.

We must understand: it isn’t enough for the Left to demand the “right to boff whoever (or whatever) they want to boff whenever they want to boff it, but the American taxpayer must be forced to foot the bill for the right to boff without consequence.

Remember the commercial that used to say “A mind is a terrible thing to waste”? It still is.

With the proliferation of mindless liberalism in pop culture, we need one today that says, “Ignorance is dangerous…and being an idiot is dangerous to everyone around you.”

But being an idiot is so freeing, right?  It frees one from the burden of being encumbered by facts. It frees one from the burden of being responsible for one’s own needs and state of being. It frees one from the burden of being restrained from undermining the liberties of other people. It frees one from the guilt of having taken property from another person, and from having supported the trampling of other people’s liberties.

Being an idiot is a modern-day license to leech.

Now I see why being an idiot is so attractive to some people.

    “The right to boff”? That’s a new one.

  • thisoldspouse

    The stupidity burns. I can’t believe these drones made it to “adulthood.”

    • Carrie_K_Hutchens

      I have a real problem with the “irrational” aspect of it, too, which may or may not be akin to the stupidity of it all.

ObamaCare: Taxpayer Funded Sterilizations for 12 Year Old Girls

Bob Ellis

You were just dying to have your tax dollars spent to sterlize 12 year old girls without parental consent, right? Not enough private charities exist to fill this need, so you were waiting for government to force you to do it, right? Well, in addition to removing from you the burden of deciding what to spend your own money on, and relieving you of freedom of religion, you have a new reason to thank President Obama and his fellow Marxists (and let's not forget John Roberts) for forcing ObamaCare on a once-free nation.

Romney Needs to Embrace Science on Global Warming

Kevin Mooney

Gov. Mitt Romney has been talking a good game on energy policy. He will approve the Keystone XL Pipeline on his first day in office, and opposes the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) regulation of greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) through the Clean Air Act. Those are all good signs from a free-market point of view. But where the concept of man-made global warming is concerned, the Republican presidential nominee is not exactly a skeptic.

Christians: Silence is Not an Option

J. Matt Barber

Imagine the benefit to our culture if thousands of churches across America registered millions of Christians to vote. How about pledge-drives wherein pastors ask tens-of-millions of Christians to simply commit to voting biblical values? The possibilities are limitless. Shine bright, salt and light. Don’t be choked into dark silence. Because silence is not an option. It can’t be.

Romney & Ryan’s War On Women: Cause It Didn’t Take Before

Carrie K. Hutchens

The so-called "War on Women" is one of the biggest farces being flaunted all over the air waves and on the internet and even on bill boards, I'm sure. Amazing how a lie can get such traction and the truth just gets tossed in the bin of "who cares" as though it were nothing with only the non-mainstream listening, if anyone is.

Smart Tax Planning for the Gap Years

David John Marotta

Many families seek financial planning advice specifically for retirement. But if they wait too long, they miss an important tax-planning opportunity. A great strategy is to take advantage of the time between retirement and Social Security at age 70, the so-called gap years. With some planning for this gap, you can move income into the lower tax brackets.

  • Bureaucratic Red Tape Strangles Jobs

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
