Just another hate-filled, loud-mouth Liberal proving his complete and utter stupidity.
Yup, he's speaking from his own hate-filled evil heart.
Malloy's mouth needs taped and he needs sued, him and/or whatever media that is that allows him to be on the air. Reckon that's coming, at least I hope. There's a fine line between airing one's opinion publicly, and spouting such slanderous vileness.
I'm just sitting back and waiting to see how many HubPages Liberals think Malloy's comments were okay but scream and cry about what Limbaugh said.
The double standard of the left is very telling about the people they really are.
Malloy and Limbaugh are both pigs and what they said was disgusting, but from a legal perspective there is a clear distinction. Saying "I'm glad somebody is dead" is vile and hateful, but it's not slander. Saying "this person is a slut" could be considered slanderous.
I would hope Malloy and Limbaugh would both have the decency to step down and fade into obscurity as a form of self-punishment for their comments. I know that will never happen, but I can hope.
I'm sure a lot of Liberals would just love to see Limbaugh step down. I doubt it will happen.
I normaly believe we should be civil to each other but I am flabbergasted the excitement of Limbaughs statements by the left? Sandra Fluke said she needed $3000 dollars a year for birth control? It can be purchased from Walmart with a planned parenthood prescription for $5 dollars a month?........Now in trying to be politicaly correct here I admit we cannot call Fluke a WHORE because she seems to be giving it away and a whore would have to be getting paid for her services!.........so can we call her a NYMPHO?..........while on the subject why doesnt she just run an add saying all boys who bring their own condoms can have sex with me?......I honestly believe this would solve her money woes! My lengthy point here is to say if Bill Maher can call a nice woman like Palin a slut or cunty with no basis whatsoever then certainly we can all call Fluke a whore for needing 3000 dollars worth of pills, condoms, and whatever else she must need for her huge shopping list of sexual tools!
You're almost as hateful, inaccurate and ridiculous as Limbaugh.
The advertisers spoke and left Limpaw. He is a beast and they were smart to leave him. I quit listening to Limpaw when he said that the housing bubble was a figment of the liberal drive by media's imagination.
I wonder how much that cost his listeners over the years! He is a putz.
That hasn't been demonstrated. Care to eat your words?
But the fact that you and Brenda, if you are to be taken as examples of the right, have called Malloy hate-filled, loud-mouthed, and evil-hearted, while not using the same sort of language to describe Limbaugh or any of the right-wing shock jocks, means you should be directing your invective closer to home.
As I stated below, LL, what Limbaugh said was childish and inappropriate.
What Malloy said was directed at a man who's dead, can't defend himself, and at the dead man's family.
I can only assure the cute, little girl in the photo is yours so I'll ask. Would you want her to hear those words spoken of you if, God forbid, you died?
As the father of three children myself, I somehow doubt it.
On behalf of liberals I would like to apologize for that stupid comment by Malloy, it always disgusts me to hear people taking the political agenda beyond someone's grave when they can no longer respond, regardless of who does it, it's not right.
Very well put, Josak, but be careful. I can only imagine there will be some who will now be mad at you for apologizing "On behalf of liberals."
Sadly, some will agree with what Malloy said while in the next breath, scream for Limbaugh's head.
Yes, I see the distinction.
Limbaugh for calling a living woman a slut & prostitute: childish and inappropriate (isn't that what Romney said?)
Malloy for saying he's happy a dead man is dead: hate-filled, loud-mouth, evil-hearted.
No liberal Hubber has defended Malloy's comments, and yet you hope & pray that they will so your claim that "this site is a wing of the Socialist Party" will somehow make sense.
I really do see a distinction.
The distinction is Breitbart isn't around to defend himself, having only his grieving family left behind to hear Malloy's vile words.
What Limbaugh said, while childish and inappropriate, wasn't said about someone recently passed, with a family left to hear. For what it's worth, she's now getting her 15 minutes of fame and the money to go along with it.
I hope and pray when you die you have no enemies that will say the same about you within ear shot of that little girl, LL, but, of course, you won't be around to endure it. Only she will.
Have a good evening, LL.
Another person, unsurprisingly a right-wing partisan, who's claiming that I'm defending Malloy. I'm not, and no one else is in this thread.
What I disputed is the double standard: condemning Malloy in harsh terms, but giving the mildest reproof to Limbaugh.
Indeed. You got your demonstration when livelonger posted!
He compared apples to oranges. Seems he doesn't realize it's okay to label people by the way they act, but it's NOT okay to disrespect the dead in such a vile manner, nor the loved ones of the dead, like Malloy did.
I never said that.
Why would you say that I wrote that when it's clear I didn't?
Breitbart called Ted Kennedy a steaming pile of sh*t on the day of his funeral....
He deserves no respect nor sympathy. His wife and kids, yes. Him...NO!
love how the right wing loons are outraged by the comments on the left I guess as the good bullies that they are they don't like it when they get their ass kicked.
No--it's the crime of the century when it happens to them...little do they remember the load of dung they've been heaping for years.
Can't wait til we get to the real race, and call Mrs Romney trash...or compare her to a gorilla.
Then they'll see red. But what about when they said that about Mrs. Obama?
Oh..they were entitled. And they're not racist or mean.
And yet his wife and kids are the only ones left behind to hear Malloy's words.
Same as Kennedy's were left behind to hear Breitbarts. AND the 40 years of never letting Chappaquidick go.
"Did you know your grandpa's a murderer?"
Am I to understand the great LMC doesn't think leaving a woman to drown in a sinking car is murder?
Amen. How evil does somebody have be for it to be okay to revile them after they are dead? How about Adolph Hitler, James Wilkes Booth, Jared Loughner, James Earl Ray, Lee Harvey Oswald, Osama Bin Laden? I don't think dying should immunize anyone from criticism. I'm not suggesting Breitbart was in the same league with the above assassins, but he was not a very nice or very honest guy. Actuallly, he was an assassin, a character assassin.
Right...and he does not deserve the respect he was not willing to give.
But yet you mention them within the same post. That explains a lot, Deeds.
I was merely pointing out the fallacy in your unqualified statement that it's flat wrong to criticize or demean the dead.
The U.S. has a long history of political invective, smearing and cartooning.
Again, but yet you mention them within the same post. Very telling. Very telling, in deed, Deeds.
What is it telling? I specifically didn't equate Breitbart with any of the assassins I named. However, it's accurate to say that he was a nasty, dishonest CHARACTER ASSASSIN. I said it before he died and his death didn't change that fact. I agree that Malloy's video was over the top. As Romney said about Limbaugh, "I would have chosen different words." Malloy's words were inappropriate.
Ted Kennedy is a what? That is doing a disservice to piles of stinking shit!
It must be said though that when Limbaugh made his comments many comenters on hubs rallied around him and supported them where as we have all decried Malloy's, anyone who supports either of their comments needs to have a good hard look at themselves.
I was not one supporting Limbaugh. It was beneath him to have said it in the first place. He apologized. I know that's not enough for many here on HP but at least he did. It should have never happened to begin with.
Has Malloy done the same? I doubt it, for as a Dem, he'll get a pass.
you guys keep saying maloy? wasnt it Bill Maher???
AR, what Malloy said can be heard at the link at the top.
Here's what Maher tweeted: "Hate to defend #RushLimbaugh but he apologized, liberals looking bad not accepting. Also hate intimidation by sponsor pullout."
http://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2012/03/ … &or=tn
Yeah, but Maher is a hate-filled liberal, so he must be wrong, right?
As I stated, Jeff, I didn't support what Rush said. It was childish and inappropriate.
As for Maher, no one could be more surprised than I what he tweeted about Rush. I was simply presenting it to make a few Liberals' heads explode that one of their own was calling them down.
Apologizing after advertisers run from your show is not a real apology; and it was his second "apology" that was actually one. If he was sincerely sorry, he would not have taken so long to change his tune.
Yeah, it'll kinda be like Liberals apologizing AFTER Obama completely screws up the country. Get ready. We're well on our way to the Obama Crapper.
It is my hope and prayer Liberals everywhere are horribly, horribly depressed.
On a more objective note, it isn't looking good for the GOP. In hypothetical match ups, Obama is beating all the Republican challengers.
Also, the young, minority, and college educated are all in the bag for Obama. There is a question of who will get the female vote, but with the Republican attacks on abortion and contraception recently, I'm going to be curious which way it swings.
However, the election is a few months away, and in politics that is almost like an eternity, so Romney does have time to repair his image as an inauthentic flip-flopping candidate. The only question is, can he pull it off?
To me it looks like people like Limbaugh and Santorum will make a lot of people angry enough to show up at the polls in droves.
Especially young women. I keep thinking of this story I saw once on tv....
It was about some country in Eastern Europe...can't remember. But they had this tradition of kidnapping young girls from the villages and making them wives.
And this one girl was shaking, talking about how she had a close call...some men tried to snatch her from a bar, but she escaped. And she was going to college, had plans for her future...and all I could think of was her forced into a marriage, "consumating the wedding night" (rape), cooking, cleaning for him and his family, having kids....the life of a slave basically.
And all her dreams down the tubes.
My daughter's friend had a baby, and though she's happy--she will not be going on to college like my daughter. She is moving in with the fathers parents....taking care of her boy.
And you can say, "well just don't have sex." But why? Why can't we have sex with the comfort of knowing we won't get pregnant until we want to and are ready?
"My daughter's friend had a baby, and though she's happy--she will not be going on to college like my daughter."
Do the words "suffering the consequences of your own actions" mean anything to you?
Just think, for the price of a $2 condom, this girl could be heading off to college with your daughter.
Speaking ill of the dead is wrong? Do we not speak ill of Joseph Stalin and Hitler? Irrational biases are not an argument against an action.
Will I be glad when my ex-wife is gone? Not glad but not unhappy either. Here's the distinction. Our children won't know it.
Malloy spewed his hate for Breitbart and couldn't have cared less about his wife and kids, even saying as much.
I would venture to say you ex-wife did NOT try to slander an African American named Shirley Sherrod by selectively editing a tape about a white farmer, making her look racist when she wasn't, and costing her a job and temporarily her reputation. I think that was his most despicable action.
He also was alive when this event with Sherrod happened, so he had ample time to attempt to defend his immoral actions. I don't think much is gained in the public debate by going after someone who is dead though, because he will no longer be introducing ideas into the marketplace.
Breitbart was a very disturbing individual. He remained so until the day he died. Sorry for his family but that is how he was.
The problem I see is that the Lame (Main) Stream Media feeds the garbage said by one side and excludes the garbage sometimes fed by the other side. There should be political discourse allowed in this nation. It is healthy. Outright hatred is not. To speak ill of the dead isn't good political discourse.
I'm just sayin...
Conservatives are astonishing creatures. You guys CONSTANTLY post things like this like you're daring people to point out your hypocrisy and blatant projection. I don't know what parts arrogance to ignorance causes this, but you seriously need to be cut off regardless. You're attacking someone for hate mongering in order to defend someone who dedicated his life to hate mongering? Seriously? You're like NBA refs that turn a blind eye to a flagrant foul but call a technical foul on the player reacting to that flagrant. You guys are truly unbelievable creatures.
Andrew Breitbart spoke ill of the dead (Ted Kennedy), didn't care if he ruined innocent people's lives (Shirley Sherrod), and sought to destroy organizations (NAACP and ACORN) and didn't care how he did it. Lies were perfectly fine with him:
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_Breitbart - "Subsequent criminal investigations by the Brooklyn District Attorney's office and the California Attorney General found the videos were heavily edited in an attempt to make ACORN's responses "appear more sinister", and contributed to the group's demise."
This all never even registered in your brain before you typed what you typed? Seriously?
You revere this man. A man that dedicated his life to spreading hate, anger, and fear. Poisoning the well is not the problem, the person pointing it out is to you. SMDH.
Death doesn't give someone's legacy a pass. How people speak of you when you leave is determined by you. He dedicated his life to spreading hate, anger, and fear and left the world worse off because of that. He'll be spoken of with that in mind. Why should he not be?
http://thinkingallowed.hubpages.com/_hu … -Said-Good .
This was a horrible thing to say.
I'm no fan of Breitbart, Limbaugh, Coulter, et al, but this is one of those times when you have to follow the rule that says, "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything."
The man just died, for goodness' sakes, have some respect for his grieving family at least.
My favorite moment was when he accused Breitbart of bullying people who can't defend themselves. Okay, smartypants, how does a guy defend himself from beyond the grave?
Again, no fan of Breitbart. But not going to go dancing on his grave, either.
Double standard of people in the left??? lol
How about double standards of people period. Right and Left.
One sided arguments like this are incredibly dangerous, hypercritical and out and out lies.
So let's do be truthful here Longhunter...
Double standards are boundless on BOTH sides of the aisle. It's not just a right wing thing, and it certainly isn't just a left wing thing. They are all equal participants in the BS game of politics, just like you and me.
Honesty is the best policy.
I agree, IE. I guess I should have made myself more clear by saying the double-standards of the Leftist mainstream media will see nothing wrong with what Malloy said but are raising $900 worth of hell over what Limbaugh said.
I don't agree with what Rush said either. It was childish and inappropriate but I don't hear anyone screaming for Malloy's head on a silver platter as they're doing now with Limbaugh.
I am interested to see what the liberals on this site say about Malloy after complaining about Limbaugh.
Maybe since I spend so much time in the political forums, I'm beginning to think this site has become nothing more than a wing of the Socialist Party.
Conservatives love buzz words and cliches: socialism, communism, marxism, brown shirts, lame stream, yadda, yadda, yadda. Get a new schtick. You love false equivalence too.
Rush defamed a private citizen, calling her a slut and a prostitute.
Malloy spoke of a public figure and did it pretty damned accurately. Breitbart was a liar, the doctored tapes prove this, he did not care if he ruined people innocent people, Shirley Sherrod or organizations with those lies, Shirley Sherrod and ACORN are examples, and he spoke ill of the dead himself, calling Ted Kennedy hours after his death "a pile of human excrement".
Now, can we be completely honest here? No rhetoric, no other bs, just speaking to you not as one citizen to another, you genuinely don't see the difference?
Wasn't Ed Schultz blubbering and apologizing on air for what he said about Laura Ingraham? Wasn't Rick Sanchez fired from CNN? Didn't Ron Schiller leave NPR after his statements about republicans and tea-partiers? Wasn't Juan Williams fired from NPR?
My point of listing those few things is just to show, whether minor or major, regardless of how you feel about the actions taken, whether the person is liberal, conservative, or other, if they're not working for a conservative outfit, there are consequences to things these people said and did. On the conservative side however, you can lie, you can defame and nothing happens other than getting a job on FOX "news".
Give me a list of righties that have lost their jobs or were even made to apologize BEFORE they got hit in their wallets.
Andrew Breitbart presents and edited tape and ACORN goes down. He presents an edited tape of Shirley Sherrod and she gets fired by who? Lefties. It's proven that Breitbart is a liar and do the righties turn their backs on him? He spoke ill of the dead and do you condemn him for it? Of course not, you praise him and put him on a pedestal. When the lefties point this out about him however, "OH MY GOD! The left are filled with such horrible hate filled people!" Spare me.
Breitbart was an extreme partisan who would lie, cheat, steal on behalf of the right wing.
"the double-standards of the Leftist mainstream media" -
OK smarty pants. Since the national leftist mainstream media seems to be universally for war with Iran, it would follow that war with Iran is a lefty socialist cause.
Easy there, Sweet Thing!
If the national leftist mainstream media is universally for war with Iran, they're crazy. We don't need to go in there any more than we should have gone into Iraq.
There's ways to cut off the head of the snake without getting bitten.
Some Liberals in these political forums are just as sick as Malloy. Sad. Very Sad. And VERY telling as well.
Tell me about it...do you think it's cool to call Mrs. Obama trash?
It happened on Ingrahams show. Tammy Bruce said it. Can we get a condemnation?
Can we condemnd Breibart for his words to Kennedy while his family grieved?
Or is the right wing always the victim?
I've never called Michelle Obama trash so perhaps you should direct the question to someone who has. I don't like her but would not call her trash.
To speak ill of the dead when only the family is left to hear is wrong, period, LMC.
I just told you who did!
I asked for a condemnation of Ingraham and Bruce.
And if it is wrong for a hate-mongering liberal, it is wrong for Breitbart...
Why don't you condemn him too?
No. She speaks of him as an enemy of America..She should be tried for insurrection.
This is the problem.
You want those on the right condemned, but when the left does it, it's ok because the right does it too.
I'm saying, it shouldn't be that way. We should condemn anyone for behavior that merits it, no matter what side.
Then I suggest you tell the Right to stop doing it.
Let the change begin with you.
...because after these past 5 years.....there is a lot of hate to make up for.
LMAO! Yep all those invisible liberals that are carrying on the argument you seem to be having completely in your own head...
Sick twisted evil voices... that really aren't here.
It's really simple. It's wrong no matter what side it comes from. NOBODY is justified in this kind of behavior 'because the other side did it 4 years ago!'.
Politics should not be this way... it's ridiculous that the Leaders of Free Men and their constituents are so caught up in personal attacks and finger-pointing.
Let's be like Obama then.
When Romney said he was the most feckless president since Carter, what did Obama say in return?
Good luck in your primary tonight.
We can all take a lesson from Obama.
Yeah, just like Obama's lipstick on a pig comment.
No, we really shouldn't be emulating our politicians.
We should be expecting more of them.
There's a lot of people I try to emulate. Barack Hussein Obama is no where on the list, LMC.
I know. The disrespect for the president is obvious.
Just don't expect better in return. You will get what you give.
No, that's the point!
We're not supposed to try and justify our politicians poor behavior because some politician on the other side did something similar.
That's the entire point.
That WAS my point!
Obama returned a compliment for an insult...he practiced what you preach..and still it's not good enough!
He did it this time, apparently, but not before.
I was saying, I don't want to emulate the example of Obama. I don't want to be nice sometimes and horrible other times.
No, let's just be horrible at all times like Romney.
I really think you just let your political ideology speak.
Same to you....it doesn't matter what Obama does...it will never be good enough for you.
And here's a little clue: The one who starts the bad behavior is on the hook to end it.
A person has the right to respond to an assault.
Stop the assult,and the response will stop as well.
There is no 'start' to these things.
Again, you seem to think I'm something I'm not. I'm not happy when someone on the left is disrespectful, and I'm not happy when someone on the right is disrespectful.
I don't like Obama as a president because of political ideology. That doesn't mean I hate him as a person because of his political ideology.
It'll never be enough, LMC. Respect is something earned and Obama has done anything but.
And Amy Winehouse. Let's not forget the rousing sympathy of the HP forums for that untimely demise.
Didn't she bring it on herself with her behavior?
For the most part we are all the lesser for it when someone passes, but when people refuse to sway from a path of self destruction, even after they have been warned, there is not a whole lot of sympathy for them. Nothing personal, just the way it is.
Mike Malloy ain't the only one optimistic about the post-Breitbart world:
As news broke this morning of the tragic death of conservative journalist Andrew Breitbart, liberals celebrated the news on Twitter.
The most influential tweet came from Slate's Matt Yglesias (@mattyglesias), who tweeted: "Conventions around dead people are ridiculous. The world outlook is slightly improved with @AndrewBrietbart dead."

Breibart spewed his hate for Kennedy and couldn't have cared less about his wife and kids, even saying as much.
Are you trying to say that since Breitbart spoke ill of the dead, he must be a hate mongering liberal?
Or are you trying to say that when conservatives speak ill of the dead, it's not hate mongering?
No, he was wrong tosay what he did about Kennedy and, since the man is dead, I won't insult him now by calling him a liberal of any kind.
So, you admit...you use the term liberal as an insult.
Calling Kennedy a liberal is a compliment, not an insult.
Now would be the time for the Democrats to take Frum's recommendation about turnabout is not fair play. Let's see if the libs will do it.
Nope, I didn't think so.
Noooo, now's the time to call Cons on their hypocricy and ENDLESS victim status.
Do you have a link, Cassie? I would like to see more.
http://www.cnn.com/2012/03/05/opinion/f … index.html
Basically it's a hatchet job about how Limbaugh is more influential than Maher and all the other lib talking pinheads because he's more successful and therefore his comments should be taken more seriously
Then Frum comes to "Point 4: Most fundamentally, why the impulse to counter one outrageous stunt by rummaging through the archives in search of some supposedly offsetting outrageous stunt? Why not respond to an indecent act on its own terms, and then -- if there's another indecency later -- react to that too, and on its own terms?"
Some hubber was responding about how we should take Rush's situation at its own merits and ignore liberal hypocrisy -- it's on that long Fluke's slutty behavior thread.
http://edition.cnn.com/2012/03/05/opini … index.html
courtesy of Uninvited Writer, Fluke is a sl*t thread.
I tend to agree with Bill Maher, something I NEVER thought I would say, when he tweeted:
"Hate to defend #RushLimbaugh but he apologized, liberals looking bad not accepting. Also hate intimidation by sponsor pullout."
Maybe liberals will end up cutting their own throats by protesting as they've done about Limbaugh. Please hold that thought while I grab a chair and a drink.
Really? This is what I got out of it:
"After David Letterman for example made an ugly joke about Sarah Palin's daughter, he delivered an abject seven-minute apology on air. (To which Palin responded by refusing the apology and insinuating that David Letterman was a child molester.)"
He apologized, she said waaaaa, and then insulted him even worse!!
Limbaugh apologized twice and Fluke has yet to accept, to the best of my knowledge.
For as much as you dislike Limbaugh, do you really expect anyone to take anything Letterman says as serious. He only apologized to keep from loosing sponsors just as Liberals say Limbaugh is doing.
Please post his apology...never mind, I'll find it...somehow, I think the apology is just as insulting as the smear. Knowing Russsshhhhhhas as I do. Something like this: I apologize to the Femi-Nazi....
"Fluke has yet to accept, to the best of my knowledge."
Indeed, she should have said something by now on her nationally syndicated radio show, or perhaps called a press conference from her congressional office, or maybe mentioned it at one of her campaign speeches...oh, wait, I forgot--she's not a public figure, talk show host, or a celebrity of any kind.
Moreover, Limbaugh's "apology" was pretty lame.
She may not be a public figure but she opened herself up when she decided to testify at the request of Pelosi.
Where are all the screams when people like Maher and Letterman say things about Conservatives and their children. They get a pass. Palin I can understand but her kids?
Seems like more than a little of a double standard but that's the Liberal Way.
Neither Letterman nor Maher spent 9 hrs and 3 days raging against Palin or her kids.
And btw--Palin called Letterman a child molester!! Did she apologize? Noooooooo, she dint.
"Where are all the screams when people like Maher and Letterman say things about Conservatives and their children. They get a pass."
The heck they do! When Letterman made that crack about Palin's daughter, there was a huge outcry, and he (rightly) made a public apology. A proper one: he apologized for making the joke about the girl, full stop. He didn't apologize for the "words he chose" when making the comment.
You're acting like a partisan scoundrel, Longhunter. You jump at the chance to gleefully pretend that all liberals are bad people whenever one liberal acts badly.
I'd be tempted to say "that's the Conservative Way," but I know many conservatives who consistently act like gentlemen.
"She may not be a public figure but she opened herself up when she decided to testify at the request of Pelosi."
You miss the point completely, the point being how on Earth would you or anybody else know whether she had or had not accepted Rush's apology, her not having 24/7 access to the end of national media that you're meant to talk into?
Nobody heard of her before her testimony before congress, and except for Rush's hateful tirade, nobody would know her name now.
Come on, Jeff. She went on The View then said in an interview afterward she would not accept a call from Limbaugh but she did accept a call from Obama.
That was all over the news.
As a woman, I would not want to talk to Rush Limbaugh after that extended on-air assault. It doesn't matter what he would say to me, I would not accept an apology from such a stupid, hateful person.
A one-time slip can be overlooked; a three-day tirade of ugly misogyny and disgusting sexual insults cannot be forgiven.
Really? I don't watch the View. But I'll take your word, and stand corrected.
Neither do I. I saw something about it on the news, either Yahoo or Drudge Report.
If it was on the news, probably Yahoo. If it was on the "news," probably Drudge.
I look at a lot of different news outlets, Jeff. My locals are liberal as hell especially the rag known as The Tennessean newspaper. It's great for a new puppy or if you have a bird but not much else. Drudge is just another view and sometimes links to CNN, Fox, as well as Huffington.
Sorry--you call women sl*ts for using birth control? That apology is moot. Maher is a man, and has no daughters. His view on the matter is like turds in a toilet bowl.
Women that use birth control are far from sluts, LMC. Responsible would be a much better word.
Oh, I see. Maher says: "Hate to defend #RushLimbaugh but he apologized, liberals looking bad not accepting. Also hate intimidation by sponsor pullout." Basically telling liberals they're looking bad.
"He disagreed with us. Throw his butt under the bus!!!"
Nope...liberals can be misogynists too.
Thank God Obama isn't.
Oh, no, he's not a "misogynists," LMC. He's just arrogant and narcissistic.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, that's really more of what Obama is, arrogant and narcissistic.
Not to me and my daughters..He was brave enough to take a stand for us, against those like you.
Ahhhhhh, no, LMC, I don't have a problem with birth control.
I do have a problem with Liberals/Socialists trying to make religious organizations pay for it through insurance for their employees or otherwise when they don't believe in it. If you nor your daughters work for a church or any other kind of religious organization that doesn't believe in birth control, you have no beef with me.
I've always had the impression you were an Atheist, thus not a church employee, but lets not go off on that again.
As for Obama standing FOR something . . . That's a good one, LMC.

Ahahaha! KNEW it! He's the poor victim, and his real problem was descending to "their" level, which he never does.
http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=loo … ORM=VIRE1#
I agree. Limbaugh did descend to the liberals' level in saying what he said - childish, immature, inappropriate.
Wouldn't you agree with that, LMC? God knows, I do.
Nope..he's on a level all of his own...federal subsidy to have sex....
Man oh MAN....he would be funny if so many people didn't take him so seriously, and if the R's weren't all so afraid of him.
No, quite the opposite. His remarks about fluke were more or less routine for Rush. The difference in this case is that he wasn't targeting a public figure or politician; he was picking on a private citizen who doesn't have a talk show, syndication column, high political office, or cadre of reporters following her to let her reply in the media.
"they want to bomb Iran, but they're afraid of Rush"....
No, he's not afraid of Rush. Obama is afraid to piss off one of his Muslim buddies.
Anti-LMC Rant Disclaimer: NO, I DID NOT JUST CALL OBAMA A MUSLIM. I REPEAT . . . I DID NOT JUST CALL OBAMA A MUSLIM.
You don't even understand the man, or what he is trying to do.
I just geuss I'm glad you freed me from ever having to be decent in respect to the R's.
All of you R's here on Hubpages have.
everything is fair game...their religion, their wives, their kids...no matter what they say on the matter: I can smear to my hearts content.
Thank you Lords, for freeing me!
You don't even know the issue LH...you just take the oppposite side.
It had NOTHING to do with birth control! That is why the Dem women wanted Fluke to testify...because contraceptives are a health-aide---not just birth control.
Issa thought it was a 1st amendment issue, and refused to let her testify...HE brought religion into it.
If you want birth control, LMC, by all means, go get it. Just don't expect others to pay for it.
Do you say the same to those who need blood pressure medication?
No, it's a medication. If you want or need birth control, buy a condom.
You see----right over your head.
58% of contraceptive use is for reasons other than birth control. Or is it 42%?
Either way, you are discriminating against women because you think they are sl*ts, right?!
Here are the facts, Jack....Russsshhhhhh has made a BIIIG booboo.
Facts on Contraceptive Use in the United States
• There are 62 million U.S. women in their childbearing years (15–44).
• Seven in 10 women of reproductive age (43 million women) are sexually active and do not want to become pregnant, but could become pregnant if they and their partners fail to use a contraceptive method.
• The typical U.S. woman wants only two children. To achieve this goal, she must use contraceptives for roughly three decades.
My my my...there are a LOT of sl*ts in America!! Who knew?
"My my my...there are a LOT of sl*ts in America!! Who knew?"
You're the one calling them sluts, LMC. Are you now a Limbaugh wannabe?
I know some birth control medications help with other things. That would make it a medical reason thus covered. Otherwise, again, buy a condom.
See, Everybody!!! I told you the Anti-Russsshhhhhh rant was coming! I hope you got yourself a drink and took a piss! It was a little late but IT'S HERE!!!
Wait, should I use the words "late" and "birth control" in the same post?
Check this out if you don't know why women take birth control.
http://hubpages.com/question/158338/why … swer451699
I'm sure many women would rather birth control be left up to men, did you know they are working on a male birth control pill?
On the other hand, a vasectomy works better than a condom or a pill...
As stated above, UW, I know some birth control medications help with other things. That would make it a medical reason thus covered.
Except that's not how it works. If the drug is covered, it's covered whenever a doctor prescribes it, for whatever reason he prescribes it.
If it's not covered, it's not covered whenever a doctor prescribes it, no matter the reason he prescribes it.
When your doc writes you a prescription, does he note on the form what the medicine is for? No? Didn't think so.
Simple enough. Ask your doc to note the medical reason for the prescription.
Except--and this is the important bit--it. Doesn't. Work. Like that.
Your insurance company doesn't get to make that distinction. They either cover the drug, or they don't cover it. If they withhold it under certain situations and not others, what they're doing is practicing medicine, which is what doctors are meant to do.
My wife's birth control pills were covered and we only paid $4, the rest covered by insurance. They were only for birth control.
On the other hand, I geuss erectile dysfunction is a serious medical condition that we need to pay for because men can't live without sex.
FACT: The abortion rate in the U.S. is lower than in countries where abortion is illegal http://thkpr.gs/yuTJOt
So--it's not about abortion at all.....it's what?
Breitbart was a libelous slanderer who destroyed an innocent organization, ruined the career of an innocent and dedicated public servant, and walked away with his finger up his nose.
He was and is the enemy and he was not us. He deserves the disrespect and contempt in death that he did not get when he lived.
Condom? That's on the guy....point your judgement at him!
And do the words mind your own business mean anything to you?
Birth control should be cheap, available and more of it!
And when people have sex, and it makes others cringe....oh well.
We are human beings. Sex is in our DNA.
"And do the words mind your own business mean anything to you?"
You're the one who brought it up, LMC. That makes it fair game in a forum.
"Birth control should be cheap, available and more of it!"
Liberals shouldn't expect others to pay for them to have sex. The American taxpayers are not their pimps.
"And when people have sex, and it makes others cringe....oh well."
Liberals having sex doesn't make us cringe, LMC. It's like when we see two stupid people together. No one wants them frumping up a whole new generation of little, bitty, stupid people.
Yes, Liberals are VERY pathetic, LMC.
Perhaps you can all participate in the Liberal Women Sex Strike to show your support for this Fluke woman. Maybe if she can find the time to get herself vertical, she can participate. Maybe your daughter's friends should consider it as well.
Great idea....since men like sex just as much. They'll feel that pain.
It's when they suppress their sexuality that the warping occurs.
Instead of letting it flow naturally....they get all up-tight.
And, in return, they hate women!
It's sad really....and a shame. I will tell my grandsons to let their sexuality fly!
Just be careful, use precautions and don't hurt anybody.
"Great idea....since men like sex just as much. They'll feel that pain."
Counter Protest? Peeing with the Seat Down without Aiming Protest
You never know. Your husband may like the idea. He may want it to be expand.
I have a 6 year old for that.
My Hunny is all for women's equality. He loves HIS mother...*snark* *snark*
I'm all for women rights as well, LMC. My mom owned her own business back when people thought she should have been staying home with my brother and I. She was very successful and a great mother at the same time.
What I have a problem with is people that think others should pay their way.
Really? Where's the congressional hearing on Viagra?
This is all about SEX.
Females can't have it...unless they do it a certain Patriarchal way: Missionary, and married, and planning to have children as a result of it.
The eternal victims...always.
But love you John!

Getting back on subject: I've seen more footage of hate mongering coming from the "Moral Majority" which is right wing than I have from the liberal side. The behavior at the funeral services for our war dead is done by "christian groups" Despicable.
As a Christian, I can tell you the Westboro nuts that protest at soldiers funerals are more a crazy cult rather than Christians.
As for Liberals, lets start here:
http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/ … sland.html
http://news.lalate.com/2009/06/11/lette … e-youtube/
This is just a start, dude.
Funny, those nuts think you're the one that is nuts.
Andrew Breitbart was a scumbag. Conservatives can't even be bothered to see that his "exposees" on ACORN and Shirley Sherrod were just heavily edited videos taken out of context. Just because someone is dead doesn't mean they're immune to criticism, otherwise speaking ill of say, Hitler, should be just as offensive based on those criteria.
"Rush complaining media "launched an all-out attack on your host." Says attacks on him are why Obama's poll #s are down"
Pyramid of Platitudes.
Poor me! Poor me! Poor me!
I dint do nothin!
Limbaugh just called a meeting of the National Association of Women, the "NAG convention" -- National Association of Gals.
We are 1/2 the population of the country, and mothers to all of it.
Is he TRYING to give cons a bad name?
Head NAG: Rush is God's Gift to Women
http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2012/ … t_to_women
Just a little gift to make your day, LMC. I sincerely hope you enjoy it.
Something told me you wouldn't. God forbid, you listen to anything that remotely deviates from the Liberal talking points or the words of the idiot, Barack Hussein Obama.
I read the transcript. Have you heard of "a blessing in disguise"? The head of NOW is well aware of the ongoing assault on women's issues that has become a top priority of the Republican party ever since they let the crazy right-wing become the voice of the party. Rush's three-day marathon of stupidity, while offensive and hateful, had the unintended side effect of bringing attention to the backward direction of the current GOP. Women who might not otherwise follow politics heard about it and had their eyes opened and are horrified at what they see.
A blessing in disguise. Recent polling has shown women favoring Obama over any Republican by as much as 20 points. Imagine that.
"80% of women don’t report rape or sexual assault, survey claims"
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/ … laims.html
If they are sl*ts for just having sex....imagine trying to call rape: It would be as my attacker said: "You enjoyed it."
Rush is a cancer on the world.
"Rush is a cancer on the world."
So is 'hate', LMC, but your hate is your own private cancer.
What about yours, Longhunter? Try taking a long look in the mirror.
Nice try, Deeds, but I hate no one.
What about yours, Deeds? You're a Liberal. What do you hate? Hate is a part of being a Liberal. It's just a matter of how much one hates as to how big a Liberal they really are. LMC's own words bare that out.
I'm an American and, as such, have a tendency to speak out against unpatriotic people like Barack Hussein Obama and others have a problem with that. Guess what, Deeds. I don't care.
This is a free country and anyone has a right to disagree with me. Just don't expect me to roll over and take it anymore than I expect you to.
You hate me LH. THAT is obvious in every post of YOURS.
"Hate is a part of being a Liberal." Both you and LMC have a tendency to demonize by political affiliation and philosophy. In my opinion, you should both tone it down.
Hate is a part of some liberals, just as it is a part of some conservatives. It is not, however, a characteristic of all liberals or conservatives.
I notice you are eager to go back and forth with LMC, but ignore my response to your link about "NAG," as you call it. Your wife must love your willingness to jump onto the female stereotype promoted by that lovely human being, Rush.
I'm simply doing two things, PP.
1. Pointing out (Okay, some) Liberals' and LMC's hate for EVERYTHING.
2. The fact that I believe Barack Hussein Obama is unpatriotic. He may be an American by birth but not in his heart or beliefs.
If you don't like my two points, I could not care less. Point one is proven by LMC's own words. Point two is proven by Obama's desire to change this country into a Socialist Utopia.
"Hate is a part of some liberals, just as it is a part of some conservatives. It is not, however, a characteristic of all liberals or conservatives.
You're right, PP. Not all Liberals are as hate-filled as LMC, again, as demonstrated by her own words. Good point. I apologize to the Liberals that aren't as hate-filled as LMC, again, as demonstrated by her own words. However, you shouldn't mistake my words as hate when I simply don't like and disagree with the unpatriotic Obama. You may not like my words but I have not said I hated anything or anyone as LMC has REPEATEDLY.
When it comes to what Rush said, I have no problem with women getting all the contraception their little hearts desire, especially Liberal women. I would prefer they didn't reproduce. I just don't think the American people should be forced to pay for it. I also don't believe the president should be trying to force it on religious organizations or churches that don't believe in it either.
As for my wife, she is free to believe what she wants. She has stated she dislikes Obama's attempt to force birth control on anyone. I did mention this little protest Liberal women are putting together of holding out sex for a week. She said we would not be participating.
As for toning it down, I'm just giving as good as I get. For those that can't handle it - OH, WELL!!!!!
You say we shouldn't construe your words as hate.
If I said to you that you "are not as hate-filled" as someone else, how would you interpret that?
If I said to you that I would prefer you didn't reproduce, how would you interpret that?
If I referred to your "little hearts desire" how would you interpret that?
"I have no problem with women getting all the contraception their little hearts desire, especially Liberal women. I would prefer they didn't reproduce."
LMC and I have had several discussions about the word hate. You're welcome to look them up for yourself. I was simply pointing HER words.
I said 'I would prefer they didn't reproduce." meaning Liberal women. I'll stand by that.
I said "I have no problem with women getting all the contraception their little hearts desire . . ." I'll stand by that. I don't have a problem with it to "their little hearts desire". I just don't believe the American people should have to pay for it.
There's a lot of this "Conservatives don't care if you use birth control or have abortions as long as you don't expect anyone else to pay for them" going around, but I call shenanigans.
Maybe Longhunter personally doesn't care if people use birth control or have an abortion, but there's no way anyone with over half a brain would believe that conservatives in general are in favor of reproductive freedom: they propose law after law (and often pass them!) to further and further restrict women's access to contraception and to abortion services. Fetal personhood? Abstinence-only sex ed? All of the various (silly) legal ideas from the right relating to human reproduction have had the sole aim to limit reproductive freedom.
So while certain individual conservatives might be for freedom (as long as they don't have to pay for it), the GOP as a whole is against it.
(Also, I have to wonder, would conservatives or the GOP support the right of people who do not think it's such a hot idea to go to war for no good reason to be not required to pay the portion of their taxes that go to support the war effort? No? Then shut the heck up about "as long as I don't have to pay for it.")
And then there was this:
"OMG, the name is Melissa! Not Mel! Sorry, dude, I mean dudet!!! I think."
No hatred there, nope, none to be seen, nuh-uh.
You're right, Jeff, no hatred there at all.
I don' t hate Melissa any more you do. I don't know Melissa. I was simply providing a come back after being insulted as we've both done in other cases.
Call it what you like. I know how it was meant and I sincerely hope she does as well. Give and they shall receive in like kind.
Well, then, don't you worry; you can keep on not hating to your little heart's desire. I'm sure you are not as hate-filled as other conservatives. And as long as you don't care who uses contraceptives, then I'm glad, because many people would prefer that conservatives don't reproduce.
Hey, PP, I just wanted to say thank you. I just read to my beautiful bride your comments concerning her as well as my response. She informed me that not only would we not be participating in "the stupid no sex protest, we will be doing the opposite."
I LOVE MY WIFE!!!!
I don't watch slasher movies either...I try not to fill my head with poisonous hate.
"I try not to fill my head with poisonous hate."
Let me guess. There's enough there already. Overflowing. Right?
LMC wrote: "I am the one receiving you words...it's hate.
And you have a lot of nerve to pity anyone! What makes you so superior?"
I pity anyone who has the level of hate within them that your own words demonstrate is within you, LMC. Yes, I pity you.
I'm not superior, LMC. I just don't carry the hate around that you do for the whole world to see.
Here's an idea. Count how many times in one day you say you hate something then you figure it out. You're not stupid, LMC, just obviously filled with hate.
Don't address me anymore, and I'll do the same.
Or I will report.
US army drops Limbaugh!!
Hate speech towards women soldiers serving the country no longer allowed.

"They then released a list of 50 additional companies who have since requested all advertising be pulled from Limbaugh's show. Listed among those additional 50 just released is the United States Army.
You read that right. The US Army has pulled all advertising spots from Rush Limbaugh's show."
Oh hecks no!
This is JUST starting!
PrettyPanther wrote: ". . . you can keep on not hating to your little heart's desire."
Obviously you have me confused with someone else that hates everything.
PrettyPanther wrote: "I'm sure you are not as hate-filled as other conservatives."
Why, thank you, PP, as I've said on here several times, I don't hate anyone or anything. I can assure you, I'm not hate-filled at all. Unlike others on here, of course.
Hate is an all consuming thing that can turn one's heart black toward life and those around that person. I was that way a long time ago but decided the hate and the person I felt it for weren't worth my time. Some on here haven't learned that hard lesson yet.
PrettyPanther wrote: "And as long as you don't care who uses contraceptives, then I'm glad, because many people would prefer that conservatives don't reproduce."
That's great, PP, but, just to let you know, this Christian Conservative has reproduced three time. Perhaps that upsets you and other Liberals. Oh, well.
As for birth control, I don't have a problem with anyone using contraception. If they want to use it, by all means, go for it. Just don't expect me to pay for it.
Since Jeff brought up abortion, I'll repeat what I've said on HP numerous times. No, I don't agree with it. However, I believe it's not my right to tell a woman what to do with the baby unless that baby is mine.
I, personally, would prefer to see the baby put up for adoption as I've seen the benefits of adoption first hand. I also know people who would love to have kids but can't. Again, that's a tough decision that should be left to the parents alone.
Do you really not get what I did there?
No, I got it. You were being condescending. I have an ex-wife so I understand condescending.
Obviously you didn't catch the smart ass tone in which part of what I wrote was intended. That's reminds me of someone else on here. Lets see. Who could that be? Oh, well, never mind.
That's okay, PP. I'll be more blatant with it next time.
The rest was to let you know up front I'm not the typical Conservative. I have several views that are left-leaning and one has put me at odds with people in my church.
Longhunter - Conservative. Longhunter - BAD!!!!
It's not that simple about me and I'll admit I was wrong in lumping all Liberals into the same boat as another un-named hubber. We all make mistakes, PP. At least I can admit mine.
Take it for what it's worth but you just might find me agreeing with you on some points. I hope that doesn't scare you.
"I don't have a problem with anyone using contraception. If they want to use it, by all means, go for it. Just don't expect me to pay for it.
Since Jeff brought up abortion, I'll repeat what I've said on HP numerous times. No, I don't agree with it. However, I believe it's not my right to tell a woman what to do with the baby unless that baby is mine. "
Glad to hear it.
How do you feel about the trans-vaginal ultrasound requirement they implemented in Texas?
Y'know what? Never mind--that question was waaaay off topic for this discussion, and I withdraw it.
As you may have noticed, the Detroit Free Press made an egregiously bad editorial decision in declining to run the Doonesbury strip this week that is dealing with the Texas transvaginal sonongram issue.
http://www.comicsalliance.com/2012/03/1 … nd-comics/
If it's used to dissuade an abortion? I don't agree with abortion, Jeff, but if the woman is deliberating having one, she's probably under enough stress already.
For the sake of the woman, I would have to say I don't agree with it. It's not considered a medical procedure at that point but rather a form of intimidation to stop the abortion.
A true American Patriot. And a true Catholic. He used his religion to engender compassion and faith, not hate-- like so many who will remain nameless.
God bless Kennedy's--who gave a lot, both in public, and away from paparazzi eyes.
