More of Rush Limbaugh’s remarks re: making women using contraception post sex videos online

Here there be monsters

As I wrote about yesterday, Rush Limbaugh has finally lost it and gone completely off the rails. He has suggested that women that use contraceptives paid for by their insurance companies post videos of themselves having sex so that all of us can watch.

But you know what? That was actually only part it. Here are some excerpts from the transcript so that you can see what I mean. I won’t link to it so you don’t have to worry about accidentally clicking through to his site.

Before we get started, let’s be very clear what this odious pig is doing: he’s demonizing women that want access to contraception as slutty whores.…

Troy Mayor Janice Daniels gets smacked down on multiple fronts, recall language approved

Let me go crazy, crazy on you…

Homophobic tea partier and Troy, MI mayor Janice Daniels has demonstrated her woo-hoo inanity in such a public fashion recently that she’s beginning to get into a hole too deep to dig out of.

The hilarity began when, on January 7th, in violation of city council rules limiting discussion by council members on single issue to five minutes, she read a rambling and nearly comical screed ranting against the transit center the council had recently approved.

Here’s a sampling. Hang on to your hats.

As the duly elected Mayor of the City of Troy, Michigan, I feel compelled to have my opposition to the construction of what is called the Troy Multi-Modal Transit Center project read into the Public Record so that the citizens of Troy, Michigan will have this information available to them for all time.…

Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney expose their hypocrisy on use of government money

Hypocrisy, thy name is ‘Santorum’. Wait. It’s ‘Romney’. No, it’s BOTH!

Both Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney rant and rave about the use of government funds for all sorts of things. However, neither has much of a leg to stand on in this regard.

Rick Santorum took federal funds to home school his kids.

As he presses for the conservative votes he needs to overtake GOP presidential front-runner Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum is hammering away at the role state and federal governments play in running schools.Santorum plays up how he and his wife have home-schooled their seven children and says parents should be the ones responsible for educating their kids.…

Rick Santorum accuses Romney campaign of “political thuggery” in Michigan GOP primary


Honestly, the Michigan Republican Primary is the gift to Democrats that just keeps on giving. They are referring to the decision by the Michigan Republican Party to award two at-large delegates to Mitt Romney. As memiller writes at Blogging for Michigan, Santorum’s camp thought they should have split the two delegates and the decision goes against the MRP’s own rules.

The two at-large delegates awarded Tuesday in the Michigan Republican Presidential Primary were supposed to be split proportionately by Party rules, that is (given the results), one for Romney and one for Santorum. Given that each candidate also won seven Congressional Districts, that made the overall split 15 to 15 — a tie in delegate terms.…

Will WJR continue to air Limbaugh after he says women who use contraception should post videos of their sex online?

The day after Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a “slut” for advocating for birth control, he doubled down today by saying all women who get free contraception through their health care should post videos of themselves having sex on the internet.

Folks, if you ask ‘em, if you ask ‘em, the Washington, D.C. Department of Health will send you free condoms and and lube! The D.C. Department, free condoms and lube if you just ask ‘em for it.

So, Ms. Fluke and the rest of you feminazis, here’s the deal: if we are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it.

Ann Arbor teen who fought “anti”-bully bill takes on another “Bully” issue

Look out world, here comes Katy Butler. Again.

Last November, I wrote about an amazing teenager from Ann Arbor named Katy Butler (HERE and HERE.) She and her friend Carson Borbely put a petition on to try to force legislative change on what became known as the “License to Bully Bill”.

Well, Katy is back at it. Because she has been such an activist on the issue of bullying, starting at the tender age of 16 and continuing now that she’s 17, she is very well-informed about the issue. She recently found out about a new documentary film called “BULLY” that follows several teens who are dealing with bullies and reveals the impact this has on them and their family and friends.…

Judge issues stunning smackdown to Detroit Emergency Manager review team

Yeeouch. That’ll leave a mark.

One of my newest heroes these days, Ingham County Judge William Collette has had just about enough of Governor Sndyer’s Detroit Emergency Manager review team. As I mentioned this afternoon in my Michigan Emergency Manager news round-up, this review team tried to circumvent the Open Meetings Act, which Judge Collette had already found them in violation of, by setting up a subcommittee that would continue to meet in secret.

Judge Collette is pissed.

An Ingham County judge this afternoon ordered all 10 members of the Detroit emergency financial review team to appear in his courtroom March 12 to answer why they should not be held in contempt for attempting to evade his finding that the review team is subject to the Open Meetings Act by forming a smaller committee to meet in secret.
