Other than Catholics (no sex 'til you're married, no birth control after), I thought everybody else promoted the use of birth control?

    The GOP has tried to defund Planned Parenthood
    The Catholic Church (not the majority of it's members) has been publically attacking birth control which has been in the headline lately.
    Santorum even suggested that women practice birth control by putting an aspirin between their legs.
    Then when Rush called Fluke, a slut and a prostitute I think that was the so called "straw that broke the camels back".
    Many of us felt it was a personal attack on sexually active women who use birth control.
    Not just an attack on Fluke but on all sexually active women who use birth control.

    When it comes to matters of reproduce health, Politicians and the religious dogma of another faith should never interfere with religious liberty of an individual or her faith.

    I suppose you said the the same for Bill Maher also then. Otherwise we might have a serious case of selective outrage breaking out among the leftists.

    OK. And now that the "camel's back" is "broken," now what?

    Rush is a fat moron who wastes too much of our precious oxygen. The man has played in major role in dividing America ever since his show aired.... and will probably be remembered as the key contributor to demolishing the respectable Republican party.

    And what's the problem with that?

    The Catholic Church (not the majority of it's members) has been publically attacking birth control which has been in the headline lately.
    Then lets see those headlines.
    Santorum even suggested that women practice birth control by putting an aspirin between their legs.
    It's an old joke that obviously went over your head.

    Then when Rush called Fluke, a slut and a prostitute I think that was the so called "straw that broke the camels back".

    You should get your feelings in check and start using your head instead.

    On the other hand perhaps calling those with whom you disagree a "fat moron" might have something to do with the divisions in America. But i suppose you dont see the irony.

    It's hard to pull off n-word jokes. I've seen it done, but that would be a tough one.

    That's not defamation of character. Sorry.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    Really? You dont feel that Sarah Palin's character was being defamed by what Maher called her? Are you familiar what this 'same pig called her son?

    Why are you sorry?

    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    -- Adam Smith
