Dear Akin and Mourdock;

Please inform Mr. Cucinelli on how and why you lost your erections, oh, sorry, meant elections:

Sen. Cuccinelli, however, was outraged that his alma mater — a public state university — would host an event he believed “really just designed to push sex and sexual libertine behavior as far, fast and furiously as possibly.” Among Cuccinelli’s objections to the event:

•Upset about an (ultimately scrapped) plan to raffle off sex toys at the fair, he said the event would “push every form of sexual promiscuity there is out there.”
•Upset that some of the advertising for the event was paid for out of student activity fees, he said,“”This is a how-to fun fair for sex. This isn’t education. This is pushing sex. It’s encouraging it… It doesn’t swell me with pride to see my alma mater putting on a soft porn show.”
•Upset that “aphrodisiacs” including Hershey’s Kisses, cucumber slices, strawberry Jello-O, and oyster crackers were given out at the event, Cuccinelli, Black, and three other Republican legislators wrote to the GMU’s president,“We appropriated $33.1 million in FY 2005 to treat STDs and AIDS. We are concerned that the frivolous manner in which human sexuality is being treated here with GMU approval is counter productive to the best interests of Virginia citizens.”

Yet you assume the wealthy will spend their tax cut funds to stimulate the economy.
You been drinking?
There is a difference between spending money that the government no longer confiscates and money planned for future living expenses. By paying out two years in advance stockholders get more money up front but those that use it for living on must now find a way to shelter it against future taxes.

You'd have to work at least 24 hours a day in order to afford a normal existence.$7.50 per hour? Man that would suck.
