The Lefts incurable addiction to Statism

Individual Leftists may, from time to time, learn to reject Statism, and the worship of the State, but the ideology of leftism is inexorably wedded to the ideals of Collectivism, which demands the State be supreme in all matters including charity. Lena Dunham, writing an op-ed for the NY Times (you know a newspaper is intellectually bankrupt when it elevates the foolish to positions of credibility) is aghast that women might pay for their own birth control

“Birth control pills are many women’s method of choice for preventing unintended pregnancy and should be covered by all insurance policies for that reason alone,” she writes, but then adds that “millions of women living with endometriosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, cystic acne, migraines, uterine abnormalities and a history of ectopic pregnancies, birth control can be a crucial, even lifesaving, medical treatment.”

She continues:

If the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress succeed in stripping funding from Planned Parenthood and giving employers carte blanche to deny women necessary medication under murky notions of moral disdain, all paths to health and wellness will disappear for a huge swath of Americans.

“All paths” to health will disappear? So, women could never, say, pay for their own birth control? No health insurance would cover birth control? Planned parenthood is the only option for birth control? This is wildly inaccurate. And, understand this. Not giving federal tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, will hardly prevent that organization from offering services

The group, however, showed, in its latest annual report, that it is performing even more abortions and providing less contraception services — all while its taxpayer funding has increased.

In 2015-2016, Planned Parenthood reports performing 328,348 abortions – an increase of 4,349 abortions over the 323,999 abortions the group states it performed in 2014-2015. The organization also reported 2,945,059 contraception services in 2014-2015, and 2,808,815 of the same services in its latest report, a drop of 136,244 within a year.

With regard to its revenue, the new report shows Planned Parenthood’s total revenue to be $1,354.3 million, an increase over the $1,296.1 million reported in 2014-2015. The organization shows an increase in government reimbursement and grants this year, reporting $554.6 million in taxpayer funding, while in 2014-2015 it reported $553.7 million.

Planned Parenthood reported an “Excess in Revenue Over Expenses” of $58.8 million in 2014-2015. That amount rose to $77.5 million this past year.

So, Planned Parenthood, which Dunham practically elevates to sainthood, could not offer free birth control to women who cannot afford it? Certainly in Planned Parenthood were a corporation raking in $78 million a year Dunham would demand they pony up some of their “obscene profits”. Yet, in this case Dunham, being a Leftist can never imagine any solution but one that emanates from the federal government. How very collectivist of Dunham. This is the fatal flaw in Leftism that leads it to destroy everything it touches. Leftism sees the State as the only possible solution to any and every problem. Individuals are seen as helpless dependents who will perish without a massive bureaucracy to care for them from birth.

This belief also leads the Left to reject individual liberties in favor of the “common good” and “equality”. As a wise man said you may have equality, or you can have liberty, but you cannot have both. To ensure the egalitarian utopia the Left desires the government must be supreme, the sole arbiter of what “rights” individuals may have, and when such rights may be sacrificed upon the altar of Collectivism. In short, collectivist demands that natural rights be surrendered so as to reach this fictional utopia where all are equal. 

Such a desire is lunacy, yet the Left is hopelessly addicted to this lunacy.

Sandra Fluke you ignorant Liberal hack

If you WANT birth control pull out YOUR damn wallet and pay for it YOURSELF!

According to the Fluker, evil corporations (in this case Hobby Lobby) could be allowed to “deny women access to contraception” . . . by making them pay for it themselves! Keep in mind the price for birth control pills with no insurance is just $9/month.

TELL THE SUPREME COURT:

Protect women’s health care rights!

Any day now, the Supreme Court will announce its decision in the Hobby Lobby case. The case could have far-reaching implications for whether private companies can refuse to offer their employees’ health insurance with contraception coverage.

Plain and simple — A woman’s boss should not have a say in her health care decisions. No one’s boss should. The stakes are too high for us to be silent.

Please join Sandra Fluke and the DCCC and sign this petition declaring that a woman’s boss should not have a say in her health care decisions.

What a self-entitled bimbo

An odd fact about the Left

OK, to be perfectly fair, there are many odd things about the Left, but for the purpose of this post, allow me to focus on one, and only one. The Left has many sayings they repeat, and repeat, and repeat, and, well you get the idea, but one of their most grating is saying the “science is settled”. When they throw that out they are referring to global warming er climate change er global cooling, er, whatever they are calling it this week. They also have this quirky, and by quirky I mean obnoxious habit of saying that the Rights “hates science”. But, here is the thing, the odd thing about that, the Left completely ignores other science when it suits them. One example is how medical science has destroyed their argument that an abortion only gets rid of a “clump of cells”. Another example is, well, let me turn you over to Dr. RS McCain

Sex is about reproduction.

Now, before you Liberals start screaming about McCain being weird, and some “fundamentalist”, and how the Right hates sex, allow me to say that we, on the Right LOVE sex, and understand that sometime sex is just for fun, which reminds me I really need to find that hockey mask and fly swatter. Hell, some of us even use different forms of birth control, so no, no, and no again, we do not hate sex! Conservatives DO enjoy sex, yes even with hot Liberal women, ladies you can send your pics and resume to my email, sorry, no Feminists need apply. Now back to Dr. McCain’s lecture

This is the natural function of sex, biologically speaking, and it’s odd how the same liberal fanatics who enjoy endlessly lecturing us about Darwinism and global warming — “The science is settled!” — are so unscientific about sex. Instead, the sexual enthusiasms of liberals tend toward sterile non-procreative acts, while they react with horror at the idea that someone might engage in the normal act of reproduction with the expected result. If they can’t prevent pregnancy, liberals want to kill the resulting baby, apparently believing that motherhood itself is a weapon of patriarchal oppression.

This mentality is what I call “The Contraceptive Culture.” I’ve written about the subject occasionally for years (see “The Pill at 50: Unhappy Un-Birthday,” May 8, 2010) and my emphatic pro-life stance has sometimes led to readers mistaking me for Catholic.

Proudly Protestant, I nevertheless recognize that the encyclical Humane Vitae identified the fundamental problem with artificial contraception: It separates functions that naturally belong together. Whereas love, sex, marriage and parenthood are normally part of the same bundle, The Contraceptive Culture divides them up in a decidedly abnormal way, and once this strange way of thinking takes hold, it becomes difficult for people to understand what’s wrong with it.

My wife and I have six children, so we’ve heard all the anti-”breeder” jokes that are common to The Contraceptive Culture. Sometimes, however, you encounter truly hateful expressions of the anti-natal mindset, as when someone posted a photo of the Duggar family’s appearance at a Ken Cuccinelli gubernatorial campaign event in Virginia:

Head over to The Other McCain to read the nasty Tweets the nasty Leftists wrote about the Duggars, here is just one example

  1. Worst rally ever? RT @washingtonpost: The Duggar family is campaigning for Cuccinelli today http://wapo.st/1gl37Nu  pic.twitter.com/vzmDwDr3nX

@robdelaney Mom looks surprisingly good, for a puppy mill.

And trust me kids, they get worse. What a nasty bunch of miscreants the Left is comprised of. They call that nasty streak “tolerance”.

 

Bob Beckel is your Daley Douchebag

I have to ask, what does Beckel bring to any debate? I mean besides possible drunkenness? This guy is a buffoon, a walk behinder who spews Liberal talking points. What he is not even bright enough to make up his own lies? When I look at Beckel, I ask how this walking poster for birth control ever made it anywhere, except the local bar of course! Any doubts as to the absolute lack of character this ass hat has are washed away in this clip.

 

Are you a Democrat Slut? Do you have problems with basic math? The Other McCain can help

 

RS McCain is offering to help Democrat sluts with math problems, and the tuition? Stacy is not charging, but At $15,ooo it would still be less than the cost of that birth control you ladies want the government to pay for

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The image above is one of the “e-Cards” available at BarackObama.comthat offers a phony statistical argument for ObamaCare:

Dear Mom,
Mitt Romney says he would repeal the Affordable Care Act.
So here’s a quick question:
Can I borrow $18,000 to help pay for my birth control?
Thanks!

Whoa! $18,000 for birth control? If that number sounds strangely large to you, join the club. Conservative college student Christine Rousselle does the math, based on the simple fact that there are 14,600 days between the ages of 12 and 52:

Because our letter-writer has been reduced to asking her mom for money, we’re going to assume that she’s not very well off and she’s a bargain hunter. On Amazon.com, one can purchase a fishbowl filled with a variety pack of 144 Durex brand condoms for $25.89. Assuming she’d use one condom per day every single day between the ages of 12 and 52, that only equals $2,624.96 for 14,600 Durex condoms. For those of you who aren’t great at math, $2,624.96 is far less than $18,000. She’d have to be using around four or five condoms a day for 40 years for that number to even approach $18,000.
Suppose our cash-strapped friend prefers to use the birth control pill instead of condoms. In 41 states, she can get the pill for $9 a month at a Target or Walmart. That totals $108 per year, and $108 multiplied by 40 is $4,320, which still winds up less than $18,000. In the nine other states, the cost per month is around $30, which reaches around $14,400 over 40 years. These figures assume that our letter-writer plans on using birth control pills over the full length of time that she is able to get pregnant.

Using birth control every single day for 40 years, a slut’s total cost is still not $18,000 in a lifetime. So even if she’s putting out like a Pez dispenser — and, after all, she’s a Democrat, IYKWIMAITYD — she’ll have plenty of cash left over for vodka and Newports.

Man , that McCain guy is a giving man!

 

OK kids, time to play “are they really that stupid, or are they just a liar?”

Today’s contestant is Sandra Fluke, who says she had no idea that Target had cheap birth control pills.

Thirty-year-old Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke, who told a House Steering and Policy Committee hearing convened by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi last month that contraception can cost a student $3,000 during law school, told CNSNews.com on Tuesday that she did not know that the Target store 3 miles from the Georgetown Law campus sells a month’s supply of birth control pills for just $9.

Target advertises the $9-per-month birth control pills on its website, and CNSNews.com confirmed and reconfirmed that the $9 pills were in fact available at the Target near Georgetown Law.

So, which is it? Stupidity, or lies? Since everyone who EVER gets a prescription asks about  discounts, and every pharmacy offers many prescriptions for $4, I would say that Fluke is a liar! And a darned bad one too!
