You have to be a jerk not to be upset over the words Rush Limbaugh used to describe the young lady speaking in favor of government aide to purchase birth control pills for those that cannot afford them. Some say Rush is just an entertainer. The truth is, to a conglomerate of people, Rush is the voice of reason, the one that influence how they think. Rush's words carry power.
What is more powerful though is what Rush is not saying. The words he don't let drip from his fowl mouth. Did you know the government pays for Viagra for its Vets? Yep, its a fact...google it.
You see in this world of trick mirrors and smoke screens you have to have the gumption to seek the truth for yourself.
So why aren't we debating that funding? I'm not saying it's wrong or right to pay for Viagra for our Veterans, I'm just asking why no one brings that fact up. Are these men sex addicts, and sluts for whom we demand that they make sex videos for us to watch? Do you appreciate that your tax dollars pay for erectile dysfunction medicine?
My point is this. Compassion warrants that some people in society have medical necessities that they can't afford to pay for. Medical necessity should be determined by the one that is suffering not by the one's that are watching the suffering. Humanity to try to alleviate one's suffering is what distinguishes us from the Rush Limbaughs of the world. What do you think? Really.
