Rush Limbaugh vs Sandra Fluke

March 3, 2012

I wish I could say that I find it amazing that the media, Democrats, moderate Republicans, and the like would support Sandra Fluke after her description by Rush Limbaugh as a “slut”, but I don’t. It just shows the standard insanity of the left and the standard lack of courage on the center right.                                                                         

                                                                                                   

But before jumping to any conclusions, let’s think about it … just what is a ‘slut’?

For most people, the word ‘slut’ is used to describe someone (usually a woman) of loose morals who has excessive intimate relations, and is typically young and unmarried. Personally, I see the word as gender neutral and have referred to many men as sluts myself. But I digress.

Instead, let’s look at the numbers. Let us say the price of the birth control pill is $50 per month. Multiply that time 3 years of law school (36 month for the liberals among us) and you get $1,800 or $600 per year. OK, it may require a little budgeting for a college student, but not all that much. But Ms. Fluke states that it costs $3,000 over those 3 years for birth control. So that leaves us $400 dollars per year in the sex protection budget. Hmm … I will assume that the remainder goes into the condom budget. Admittedly, it’s been a while since I’ve bought condoms (happily married), but I don’t think that $.50 per condom is too far out of the ballpark. So $400 dollars per year equals 800 condoms and 800 condoms divided by 365 days is approximately 2.2 condoms per day.

If I remember from my college days that most college students are not monogamous during their entire stay, that men do occasionally provide their own condoms, which would increase the frequency of use, and that I cannot think of anyone I ever knew who used that many condoms in a year, well, it just might be that Mr. Limbaugh made a good point (as he often does).

The real bottom lines are these …

First, it is not my responsibility to cover your birth control.
Second, Ms. Fluke really should take a long look in the mirror. With 1000 condoms used per year, her parents must be so proud.

    For what it’s worth, calling her a “slut” is jumping to conclusions. She could be in a perfectly monogamous relationship with Gene Simmons, for instance. Or, perhaps, Charlie Sheen or Ron Jeremy… Personally, I don’t care. She can do whatever she wants, but she shouldn’t expect the Catholic Church or the American Taxpayer to pay for her pills, condoms, lube, etc. For her to go before Congress and demand it is completely ridiculous.

    Oh, and I don’t know if you’re aware of it, but President Obama did call Ms. Fluke to “see if she was okay” and told her that “her parents SHOULD be proud of her.” I assume he meant they should be proud of her for demanding the birth control devices in front of Congress, and not the sex… But who really knows?

      to a friendly crowd among the hard-Left elite mnliloiaires in San Francisco. Obama slammed small-town voters as bitter xenophobes who “cling” to guns and religion only because — and this is particularly revealing — “government failed them”. His solution was to provide an even bigger dose of government intervention in order to get them to see the Utopia that he would create. And now we see that President Obama implementing his radical perverted view of government of 1 trillion dollars worth of earmarks. Example: Millions for condoms??? This will supply unending fodder for Rush.

    More fodder for Rush to throw back at Obama:The President can’t even rmipose one single job will result from the Democrats’ outlandish stimulus proposal.Consider the earmarks like $1,000,000,000 for new Censuses, $400,000,000 for “habitat restoration and migration activities, $150,000,000 for bridge removal, $800,000,000 more for Amtrak losses, and $200,000,000 for the leaking underground storage tank trust fund.The democrats think these expenditures may be necessary to some (mainly those who have a financial stake in each of those projects). But none of these outrageous projects are actually stimulative to the economy.As long as Obama continues supporting this crap, Rush will continue to “speak truth to power”.
