    Yes. saying a woman has lost her looks equates to an insinuation that you have the opinion that looks are important to society as a whole. Which perpetuates the unfortunate situation women are in that pressures them to look "good" in our society. There is now a medication that helps eye lash growth. Add that to the images we see and women who are afraid to leave their bedroom without makeup or with hair on their legs.

    I have not bought makeup in at least 5 years and I do not bother shaving as I am too lazy and I don't really care what people think about my body. Other women are actually frightened about it.

    Calling someone a slut under the circumstances we are talking about shows Rush had no real argument to counter Ms. Fluke's statements. Rush's comments were intended to inflame the jury -- the american public. Suggesting she create porn and post it on the internet perpetuates the unfortunate situation women are in that pressures them into fearing expressing their sexuality while at the same time having to "put out" to satisfy the "needs" of the men. either way they cannot win.

    Wear makeup and look "good" or you won't be accepted and then you will not be able to have sexual relations, which we expect you to do, but not too much because then you are promiscuous.

    Are you confused? I sure am.

    I will never understand why after all the stupid things Rush has said this is the one that seems to be going to ruin his show. I mean really? He's been on the air saying stupid stuff for years! I forget when he got on the air but its been a while. I would have thought he would have crashed and burned years before now.

    It is because of the highly politicized arguments about health care and discrediting any "lefties" from speaking their mind. It was an intimidation tactic. I searched and searched and searched for "righties" with any clout that have scolded Rush, I found a couple groups of right-wing women voters who said his comments were "inappropriate". As others in this thread have pointed out the "lefties" have been criticized for engaging in similar tactics. They are all being nasty and it is a damn shame because it reduces the level of public discourse to "wah, you called me a name" and "wah, your words hurt". Yes, in my previous post I pointed out the social impact of the words, but I did not claim to feel that way myself. it is a way to avoid discussion on the issues because no one has any idea if they are truly right or wrong and they cannot effectively back-up their game.

    I guess you missed this part then:

    "Humana is not the only company to go to extreme lengths to distance itself from Limbaugh. Domino's responded to 3,500 individual complaints for an ad that aired on Limbaugh's program without the company's knowledge."

    Was that supposed to be a dig? At this point I think they all have reduced themselves to a bunch of kids running around pointing fingers "Mommy,she said I have cooties." unfortunately there is no one to put them in the time out corner.

    As for the BC issue, there are still a boatload of issues to be addressed... but no one is doing that because their feelings are hurt.

    Well, that was kind of the point of doing this whole BC thing in the first place for the administration....Isn't diversion fun?....Oh, and it wasn't a 'dig', it was more tongue in cheek, thought it might make you smile. See, I actually have more respect for someone in here who comes out and says straight out what their ideology is rather than play the stupid 'Indy', 'other', label game while at the same time making it clear through their postings what they subscribe to.

    Sorry, I was not criticizing, I honestly didn't get it without hearing your tone of voice etc... so I asked. I tend to ask a lot of questions.

    Cool, no worries....I being a conservative have much to disagree and debate with you about, but I'd like to think I can see reason, and say when it is right....Sorry, I wasn't more clear...
