Paul Mooney blows past Rush Limbaugh at Mach 5.7. Shockwave creates atmospheric double standard | Grey Enigma

RANT WARNING:  So, I admit that I find comedian Paul Mooney funny, just as I admit that i occasionally listen to Rush Limbaugh if I am driving.  I caught little snippets last week of the faux controversy whereby Rush supposedly called Sex Addicted, but Impoverished, Ms, Fluke a “slut” .. an apropos epithet that seems to have caused Limbaugh advertiser Sleep Number Bed to leave him as quickly as Ms. Fluke reportedly gets into hers.

OK, whatever, anything to paint our Vicodin chewing, bombastic captain as negatively as possible as often as possible, even though we are told he is irrelevant. I get it.

(Then, BTW, traumatized by the fact that the Ms. Fluke – reportedly a 30 year old activist and therefore either a really stupid or lazy ‘college student’ who perhaps should spend more time studying than screwing – was called a nasty name by someone he should care less about, our President was forced into contemplation of his daughters for some weird reason. BHO then reportedly felt compelled to call Ms. Fluke and express support for her sex life. WTF?! A little creepy there BHO…)

Do not lose sight of the foundational issues here, i.e. those whereby the Federal Government seeks to abrogate 1st Amendment rights on freedom of religion (and, arguably, establishment of a government religion) and also seeks to force the individual into a collectivist and coerced system of health care purchasing for which the Federal Government has no power.  The shadow diversion issues of “sexism”, “gender-ism”, “class-ism”, “racism”, “social justice”  and all the other divisive “-isms” are just another dose of the incessant smoke screen we are faced with as our society, culture, rights and economy are devalued, changed or stolen outright.

But, even the dumbest among us (like me) can see a crushing double standard in the smokescreen of the faux issues.  OK, Rush Limbaugh calls some narcissistic, messianic sex-fiend a slut when she comes to us – hand out – expecting us to pay for her free condoms and dental-dams while she is enrolled in a Catholic College, replete with moral restrictions, of her own choosing.  Not only is she reasonably called a slut, but a stupid and entitled slut at that. (My words, not Rush’s.)

Now compare that considered opinion, to this stream of sexist, racist, unsolicited bile – although funny – from comedian, Obama supporter and stanchion of the left Paul Mooney, and ask yourself where is the outcry against HBO for airing these opinions?

I.e. forward to 2:39 into the clip as Paul opines on Sarah palin (who as far as i know pays for her own condoms.)

FOUL LANGUAGE WARNING. You’ve been advised. Deal.

Rant warning re “Does Reproductive Freedom Imply a Right to Free Birth Control? | Reason Magazine

RANT WARNING: I am so over this faux controversy, this conflation of “wants” with “needs”, “privileges” with “rights”, “health” with “behaviors”.  On the one hand this nonsensical issue is so illuminating of the poverty of the left / Obama / Obamacare / Socialism premises. On the other this is a painful distraction from real or truthful regarding things such as:

  • The role of the Federal Government in personal needs and wants;
  • Duties of others to meet needs and wants of the some;
  • The constitutional constraints on Executive authority;
  • The spinelessness of the Legislative branch;
  • The reproach-ability of the Judicial branch (coming soon?);
  • The long ignored overpopulation issue (wonder what Paul Ehrlich thinks of this state of affairs?);
  • The recent synonymy of “pregnancy” with “disease”;
  • The implied misanthropy and human-hating premise of the left and this contraception policy;
  • The apparent supplanting of some non-existent ‘birth control debate’ for the ‘abortion debate” which has devolved into an electoral non-starter on which progressives have traditionally relied;
  • How this relates to Obama’s low approval ratings among women and the coming election;

My head will burst if I think about this any more…Thank you Rush Limbaugh BTW.

Fulke limbaugh rights needs wants health care slut comment free abortion abortifacientsvia Reason MagazineSupporters of Obama’s birth control rule conflate liberty with subsidies, insisting that you are not really free to do something (in this case, use contraceptives) unless it’s free. According to this logic, observant Jews do not have religious freedom unless the government pays for their kosher food, bloggers do not have freedom of speech unless taxpayers buy them computers, and Americans in general do not have a right to keep and bear arms if they have to pay for guns with their own money. By contrast, the religious institutions that object to the contraceptive mandate are not asking for subsidies; they are resisting them. They object to a regulation that forces them to pay for products and services they consider immoral. They want the freedom to offer their employees health plans that do not cover contraception and sterilization…

Just say no to health insurance | ESR

Everyone talks about reforming health insurance while ignoring a better alternative: healthcare risk pools. Powerful lobbyists for the healthcare insurance industry have convinced politicians to perpetuate the current system of health insurance, hoping that minor tweaks will solve the escalating crisis. Conservative think tanks have even bought into the system due to heavy funding by insurance companies.

Risk pools allow people to buy into health plans of their choosing instead of obtaining health insurance coverage through employers. Health insurance is not a free market creation. It came into existence as the result of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s socialist policies. Roosevelt mandated income caps during World War II, which caused employers to offer health insurance in order to keep jobs attractive. Now the government requires businesses to provide health coverage to employees, giving insurance companies a monopoly on healthcare coverage and ensuring their existence. Continue reading

Fox Presses White House on Religious Freedom Controversy; Will Big Three Cover? | NewsBusters.org

Fox News’s Ed Henry challenged White House Press Secretary Jay Carney during a Tuesday briefing over the growing controversy surrounding the Obama administration’s move on January 20 to force most employers to cover sterilization, abortion-inducing drugs, and contraceptives in their health care policies without co-pay. This new federal mandate would force Catholic institutions, like hospitals and schools, to decide whether to obey it or follow the Church’s teachings against contraception.

Anchor Megyn Kelly trumpeted that “this is turning into a big deal, and the White House… [is] saying they believe they have struck the appropriate balance…the Catholic Church…saying, how is it the appropriate balance to delay…the time at which we’d have to violate our consciences?”

New Documents Show Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan’s Comments on Obamacare Legislation While Serving as Solicitor General | Judicial Watch

“…These new emails are bound to raise additional questions about whether Justice Kagan ought to participate in High Court deliberations on Obamacare. Certainly, if these documents were known at the time of her confirmation, there may have been quite a different Senate debate. The Obama Justice Department dumped these documents just before a holiday weekend, hoping they would go unnoticed. This slow-walking of documents out of the Obama Justice Department is scandalous and makes one wonder what other information they are sitting on,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

(CNSNews.com) – U.S. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle, a Clinton appointee, has ruled that the Justice Department does not need to release emails Solicitor General Elena Kagan sent from her DOJ email account to people in the White House—in which she discussed her recusal decisions as solicitor general—because the emails were “used for a purely personal objective.”
