It is an anomaly to me to see the drift in government to control in micro-detail certain aspects of our society and yet determine to be hands-off on other key issues. I often am asked questions by the media on these choices. Recently the American public was given an edict that affects many religious non-profit organizations.
Mitt Romney slams heckler.
Romney responds to a student (falsely) equating freedom and happiness who wants free birth control.
In the heat of the Democrats' "We Love Women" campaign, the White House took a detour to testosterone land Tuesday.
What with liberal women constantly talking about their vaginas suddenly pretending to be offended by the word "slut," and conservatives pretending to be as pussified as liberals about the nasty names they've been called, I never got an answer to the most pressing question about Sandra Fluke.
The heated public debate about the HHS mandate requiring employers to cover contraception has brought out the worst in “feminist” organizations. It’s time to blow the whistle: They’ve resorted to creating outright fiction in order to fundraise and fear-monger. Sadly, upon examination, many of their claims go beyond the usual political spin, to outright untruths that are actually destructive to women’s empowerment.
Dear President Obama...
I, for one, was delighted when President Obama decided that all forms of birth control should be provided for free by insurance companies. There’s little doubt that every woman should have the right to unrestricted sexual activity without the burden of an unwanted child. More importantly, I’m now prepared to make my case to get free blood pressure medication included in my insurance plan.
Since President Obama attributed his reasons for calling Sandra Fluke last week as pertaining to his desire to see his own daughters Sasha and Malia follow in her footsteps, you have to wonder if he hates his daughters.
The Washington Post fancies itself a very influential newspaper, an opinion-shaper among the powerful D.C. ruling class. So when it editorialized last week about Rush Limbaugh's commentary concerning Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke, some heads snapped back. It is very unusual for the poobahs at the Post to involve themselves with talk radio. It's kind of like Al Gore playing rugby: far too rowdy and dirty.
There is something special about a mother and her love.
Saul Alinsky is alive and well in the political maneuverings of the secular left. The problem is; we all have the play book now.
In 1984, Mario Cuomo pioneered the argument that one may be "personally opposed" to abortion, while supporting abortion rights.
That Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke's congressional testimony has come to dominate our national conversation about the government's unprecedented insurance mandate shows just how easily the media can become distracted from the truly profound questions that confront our country.
The Obama administration issues an edict regarding birth control that is 1) blatantly unconstitutional, 2) economically absurd, and 3) completely unmatched to any national need. What are they talking about? The "Republican war on women."
Anyone who believes America's culture wars are behind her should have started out Friday reading The Washington Times.
We all know the answer to that one. She’s the latest recipient of the legendary “15 minutes of fame,” and she is surely making the most of it. Fluke is the Georgetown Law student who was invited to Nancy Pelosi’s little publicity stunt to bemoan the fact that she isn’t getting free contraceptives. She is now enjoying and, I must say, making the absolute most of her 15 minutes.
