    The whole point is that Friess implied that if women kept their legs shut they wouldn't get pregnant, which goes against everything else men tell else they want, just look at nearly any magazine advertisement aimed at women, go to any bar etc... Mitchell was able to hold the most poise possible in this situation.

    Okay, but contraceptives aren't going anywhere.

    Liberal position:

    1. Don't want kids having sex.
    2. If they do I don't want them getting pregnant.
    3. Kids are going to have sex regardless of what Mom and Dad think.
    4. Push condom use or birth control pills.

    Religious Conservative position:

    1. I don't want my kids having sex.
    2. If they do I don't want them getting pregnant.
    3. Kids are going to have sex regardless of what Mom and Dad think.
    4. Teach your children how to safely prevent pregnancy without the use of contraceptives.

    Both goals are to prevent pregnancy. Why in all of God's creation do we need government to mandate how we decide to push our moral views towards sex upon our children? Given the above, can someone explain to me how the Obama administration believes this is within its power to legislate?


    Tim-
    Just to jump in here -- this post confused me. No one is being forced to use birth control.

    How does this regulation change that relationship between parents and children?

    Foster Friess, a prominent backer of Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, raised eyebrows Thursday when he offered up his own idea for a possible contraceptive method: "This contraceptive thing, my gosh, it's so... inexpensive. Back in my days, they used Bayer aspirin for contraceptives."

    Friess's implication is that if women hold aspirin between their legs, they won't open them.


    OMG OMG OMG OMG. Wait for it.... Andrea Mitchell, what could she have said?
    He could have said it with more tact. However, he is essentially correct even though he ignores how people actually behave, and in the real world, effective policy based on behavior and data, not idealism.

    I disagree, there is a practical emotional component as well. It promotes healthy relationships in committed couples. When there is trouble in the bedroom, there is trouble in the house.

    As to condoms, the pill exists because men wanted an alternative to latex. It exists as a convenience for both women and men and puts women in control of their reproductive system. They also don't have to rely on taking a guy into using a condom.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    Procreation isn't absolutely necessary either. Just sayin'.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I was using a sarcastic one liner to attack the notion that promiscuity is on the rise, and that we have worse sexual morals than people of the past. Pinkie got it. The idea that we, as a society, have more sex and more promiscuous sex, is nonsense. It is part of our romantic view of the past, the same one that makes people think Leave it to Beaver was real and that the 50s were a magical time of prosperity and morality. Human beings have a lot of sex, and we don't, as a rule, let societal expectations stop us. The only difference between now and then is how open we are about thinking that societal rules inhibiting sexuality are bogus.
