$1000 for Contraceptives…Or $108 Three Miles Down the Road?

March 6, 2012   ·   By   ·   2 Comments

Wouldn’t it be refreshing if, just once, the Left would be straightforward and completely honest about what they want?

I mean, wouldn’t it just send a tingle up your leg to hear a liberal say, “Look, we want to have sex when we want, where we want, with whomever we want, in any way we want, and we want someone else to pay to protect us from any consequences thereof”?

I think I’d spend the rest of the day walking with a new spring in my step!

Alas, that day appears to be nowhere in sight.

In the meantime, we have to put up with lie after lie after lie from the Left, with them making statements that leave us wondering, “Are you that stupid, or do you think I’m that stupid?”

Like when feminist activist Sandra Fluke-she of the “my fellow law students and I are having so much sex it takes $1,000 a year in contraceptives to shield us from the natural outcome of having sex”-told us that, oh, it’s just so tough going to one of the nation’s most prestigious (and expensive) law schools and still be able to pay for your own contraceptives.

Such incredible hardship and privation is why she and her fellow Leftists demand that Christians who have moral objections just surrender their religious freedom to pay for her contraceptives and abortifacients.

Once again, the Lying Left is revealed for what it is.

From CNS News:

Although Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke testified to the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee last month that contraception can cost a law student $3,000 over three years and that some of her fellow students could not afford it, a Target store only 3 miles from the law school currently sells a month’s supply of birth control pills for only $9 to people who do not have insurance plans covering contraceptives.

That would make the total cost for birth control pills for a student who decided to use them for all three years of law school just $324.

Yeah, we already knew such prattle was a load of bilge. This just nails the coffin of Leftist credibility shut.

So sure, let’s demonize and threaten the livelihood of a man who has the audacity to aptly describe a woman who testifies publicly that she and her fellow law school students are having so much sex that they need 10 x the amount of contraceptives it takes a normal woman to avoid pregnancy.

Why not?  It makes about as much sense-and is about as honest-as anything else that comes out of the Left.

Deplorable Injustice Continues for Lt. Michael Behenna

Gina Miller

Last Thursday, yet another example of the corrupt attempts at appeasement of our enemies within and without was displayed in the rotten-to-the-core decision by three of a five-judge panel of the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces to uphold the insanely unjust conviction of 1st Lt. Michael Behenna for unpremeditated murder of a known al Qaeda operative who was suspected of orchestrating a bombing that injured and killed members of Lt. Behenna’s platoon.

Where Will Canadians Go for Health Care After ObamaCare?

Bob Ellis

If not for our own sake, at least for the Canadians' sake we must repeal this abomination to liberty known as ObamaCare. After all, if we behave like total morons and follow them down the path of socialism, they will have nowhere to flee to for decent health care.

The Political Intimidation of the Court

Guest Author

We think of the 9 robed Justices of the Supreme Court as beyond intimidation. However, we now know this is false. The bizarre decision of Chief Justice Roberts to uphold Obamacare by making it Obamatax is not the first time that a Supreme court Justice has succumbed to intimidation and voted to usurp the Constitution, believing it was necessary to preserve either the Supreme Court or their own personal legacy.


Follow the Money…To Environmental Extremists

Guest Author

Environmentalists are always predictably outraged at the money spent by energy companies in politics, claiming the philistine big oil interest is buying and bullying its way into a political advantage. But if liberals claim that this big oil money is buying political outcomes and muzzling environmentalists with an average of $12.5 million a year, how much political clout do they think $100 million dollars a year from their own coffers will buy?
