I am tired of women being subjugated. Lincoln freed the slaves. However, women
of all colors are not truly free. Women are not free to earn decent living salary. We are not free from spousal abuse and other violent acts perpetrated by men. We are not free to choose what we can do or not do to our own bodies. I want Rush Limbaugh fired because; he denigrates women and is a racist. I want Limbaugh fired so he can be an example to others like him, that we will not tolerate this kind of misconduct.
Every day in every American city you will find and article in your local newspaper or on your local TV News; about a women being raped, battered or killed by men, most of the time it was perpetrated by a spouse or boyfriend. Did you know that women commit less than 10% of the crime rate? Also, around 50% of the women in jail for murder; these women killed their spouse or boyfriend to protect themselves or their children. What does that say about men?

Let me see. How eactly d I put this. Boo hoo, Nancy! Stop your whining. Seems to be men are not "free" from crime either. Ever watch "Snapped" on TV? Neither man nor woman has moral high ground here. Now stop judging people by their gender and start the "oh woe is me" complaining!

I couldn't get the article, so I did not read it, but I heard Elrushbo's tyraid that day. Besides being obnoxious, and cruel, it was also not even a little bit factual.
He claimed S. Fluke was a whore and a prostitute because she wanted someone else to pay for her birth control. He claimed she was having so much sex that her own actions made her birth control too expensive.
Which was the stupidest part of his rantings. That makes no sense. BC does not cost more when you have more sex.

His rantings showed how women are Viewed in the republican party. They are viewed as children. Why any woman would be involved with the repubLicans is beyond me.
Not only are you a slut for wanting birth control you can afford, if you find yourself burdened with an unwanted pregnancy, abortion is not an option.
And while you are pregnant, if you need assistance, you are draining the American economy because of your own irresponsible actions. After your child is born, using WIC, Medicare, food stamps or any other govt programs, they go right back to calling you a useless slut.
Meanwhile if the father of this kid offers no assistance that is your fault too for getting pregnant by mistake.
Their whole stance on healthcare is really bad. And by far much worse for women.

Remember these are the guys saying Obamacare will ruin the American way of life. How can any woman get behind republican attitudes towards American women?

And yes, Rush should be off the air. He won't be though, because he has never none anything wrong. Just ask him if he has ever made a mistake.
He uses 3 hours a day to present his opinions unchallenged by anyone.
He never appears on any show that would challenge his views.
He is not a good thing for American politics. He is only good for himself.
