CALIFORNIA mattress store chain SLEEP TRAIN has announced via Twitter that it has pulled its ads from RUSH LIMBAUGH's syndicated PREMIERE NETWORKS show after the host referred to a college student testifying about contraceptive availability as a "slut," then demanded that women on the pill provide sex videos since the government mandates insurance pays for the pill -- comments LIMBAUGH asserted were made as a form of absurd humor.

This is the kind of person who wants taxpayers to pay for their BIRTH CONTROL...

“I have no clue what I’m going to do,” said Rhetta Pope, 22, of Austin. A stay-at-home mother of two, she lives off disability payments of less than $1,500 a month.

BOO FREAKIN WOO...

She is 22 yrs old and ‘disabled’ BUT she has TWO KIDS already...NO MENTION of a father aka sperm donor!

They would be fools to drop ads on Rush!

I would immediately drop them on every computer that I have including our businesses! More fish in the sea nowadays than Carbonite!

[ “I have no clue what I’m going to do,” said Rhetta Pope, 22, of Austin. A stay-at-home mother of two, she lives off disability payments of less than $1,500 a month.

Pope said after paying basic living expenses, she has so little left she scrimps on electricity by keeping the lights off and takes her laundry to an aunt’s house. She can’t imagine how she would pay for birth control.

“I guess I’m going to have to stop using it because I don’t have the money,” Pope said. “I’m pretty shook up. I really am.” ]

Duh, maybe STOP having sex, you have to make sacrifices by taking responsibility for your life disabled or otherwise.

This is another reason why I think Prostitution should be legalized, because morons like this could actually provide a service to others, they could support themselves, and the brothels could write off Birth Control pills and condoms as a “business expense”. (Half joking on the last point).

I can tell her how to stop paying for her birth control. Keep her legs together and take care of her kids....If I read that correctly its 10 dollars a month for BC pills. Thats 2 pkg of 12 cans of pepsi....If she cannot find 10 dollars in her budget she should sleep alone...When I was a young woman BC pills were expensive and no insurance covered it. Too many mandates by the government on what they have to cover. That equals increased premiums for everyone....

I guess they don’t remember the Snapple fiasco. Snapple became a real player in the beverage market with Rush’s support. Then they were bought out by a new owner who canceled advertising on Rush’s show. The business tanked and they lost a fortune.

And what did Rush do? He started his own successful soft drink company;Two if By Tea.

Maybe it's time he starts another company. Howabout......Two Side by Side Mattress Company.

Fighting fire with fire. As it is the dems attack a conservative and the response is “Thank you, Nancy. May I have another?”

On top of that, she set herself up when she lied about her motives. Plus, if she’s having that much sex she IS a slut. Along with all of her friends she talked about. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Rush will get the last laugh. He has enough of an empire to not need these ‘sensitive’ advertisers. He’ll be just fine. And if the left figures out a way to shut down the local advertisers, Rush will simply hop to the bird and bring his listeners with him.

Curiously, I really AM in the market for a new mattress. Now, while the California firm had no chance for my biz, Select Comfort might have.

Not any more.

LULZ!`

Wonder if Fluke uses a sleep train mattress in her late night endeavors.

I predict an endorsement deal in her future. To be series, I wonder what kind of clerkship is in store for her as a quid pro quo for her testimony. Perhaps with the Wise Latina? Wouldn't surprise me a bit.

Select Comfort is a model of a mattress manufacturer with its own stores, called Sleep Number. These people are Rush advertisers, still.

Sleep Train is a different animal:

Sleep Train is a chain store of mattress sellers, like simmons, sealy, etc. ... mall stores. No biggie.

When you've been banged like a tambourine at a Partridge family reunion ( hat tip The Iceman Cometh) and you are worried about the next $1,000 dollars you need for birth control rest assured on a Sleep Train mattress for a good night's sleep.

Sleep Train: The mattress of sluts.

Let’s guess what her ‘disability’ may be...

If you have joint pain or damage from any cause including arthritis, Social Security disability benefits may be available

emotional disturbances

******

I also found this...

This particular female is single person living in a 3 bed house, having help with her mortgage and claiming income/incapacity for mental illness that was treated and long gone at least 4-5 years ago… she claims she is severely agoraphobic , can never go out .. ever .. but yet she is a lead singer in a rock/acoustic band that gigs out live at various venues. pubs event and at least 1-2 times a week also advertising for weddings and events for more gigs too…. i think we all know that those sort of jobs are generally cash in hand !!

regulary holds rehoming days from her home providing cake tea ect… and attends college in the day !! offers reflexology massage and waxing … saying now if you were too give me money for the service ‘as a gift ‘ (nod nod wink wink ) that would be ok !!!!!! Its a joke !! And apparently she couldnt work ….. too weak and fragile with depression, house bound with agoraphobia. !!

I’ve sent links to the authorities for her band site, full of past gigs future booked dates, weekly , photos from the site and others from facebook. she’s had of 4 foreign holidays in 1 year, goa turkey kenya paris etc… various pop concerts shes attended and many a photo of her at a few recent partys or down the pub !!!! You know what I could go on with even more bits adding to reasons above like accounts with savings undeclared too but im running out of steam typing !

and all payed by us tax payers, now I would thats living a full social life ! .. nothing has ever been done about it … how much info do these investigators need exactly to look in to cases…. ! or is it all a big con too keep the rest of us happy feeling like the people at the top listen too us and care ! Im sick with it and what to do next.

The CEO of Carbonite says they are meeting with Rush. The Carbonite FB page is covered with hippies saying they will boycott if they don't drop Rush. I wonder how many really use the service...

I'm women4santorum on twitter and the trolls are hating like there's no tomorrow. What the heck. I swear they must be getting paid. A whole plan seems to have been unleashed to mess up the conservative primary season.

I won't tolerate the feminist lies. Mark Levin is right about Obamacare being a freedom issue, they are manipulating the public.

My daughter discussed abstinence and Corolla labeled her a “lesbian”. The producers ran to me in the green room freaked out wondering if i was okay. I told them my daughter could handle it.

I never understood the Select Comfort thing, the beds stink. Tempur-Pedic I get. I own one. They are amazing!

BTW this whole fiasco was a game of "gotcha" waiting to happen. The left and feminists had hoped to nail Rush for a long time.
