Two Advertisers Pull Ads From Rush Limbaugh ^ | March 2, 2012 at 12:27 PM (PT) |

Posted on 03/02/2012 1:42:14 PM PST by God'sgrrl

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.

Well another name for a slut is a “mattress” so I guess the Select Comfort folks were insulted.

These are a few of the uses these women CLAIM are used for birth control pills...

“Adolescent girls and young women are frequently prescribed birth control pills for irregular or absent menstrual periods, menstrual cramps, acne, PMS, endometriosis, and for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.”

Clue...MOST young women/girls use them for BIRTH CONTROL...

It makes MOMMIE feel better ‘knowing’ there are other reasons darling daughter ‘needs’ birth control. I guess MOMMIE never heard of PROACTIVE AND CLEARISIL for acne? /s

we need a list of companies which run AD’s on left wing channels etc and tell these companies we will not give them our money and also send mail to the companies the kooks have gone after and tell them that if they pull out they will not get our money

“The speaker obviously believes the use of those words was inappropriate, as is trying to raise money off the situation,” Boehner spokesman Michael Steel said in an e-mail Friday morning.

Sorry, Boner, but what's inappropriate is people like Fluke wanting to sleep around but have others pay for the consequences of their own actions. If Fluke wants free contraception, Fluke can keep her pants on. That's free!

This is so typical of the left. They've got illusions of grandeur and think their bluster, bloviating and piling on can destroy someone like Rush. I love that this is going to completely backfire on them, lol!!!

Pass the popcorn, please!

Tell him to TRY the Tempurpedic first before he decides. I thought I would love it! At first you kind of sink in and say awwwww THEN you can’t move for the rest of the night! I couldn’t get off of that thing fast enough. It even made my joints hurt that have NEVER hurt before. I was so disappointed.

Select Comfort has been after me to buy their over priced, crappy product for some time. I just fired off and email attached to one of their email flyer's to never contact me again, for any reason. I told them that their decision to take sides in this, will also prompt me to discourage hundreds of others like me, to boycott their product.

Breaking news: a new mandate has been added to Obamacare. Every American or foreign college student must be given a free select comfort mattress. These taxpayer funded mattresses have a do-it-yourself softness adjustment from #1 Studying in Bed Firm to #99 Slutty N Soft. #50 is perfect for everyone, so great for groups. Bidding is now closed for this contract.

States slash birth control subsidies as federal debate rages

March 2 (Reuters) - Even as a national debate rages over contraception insurance, tens of thousands of low-income women and teenagers across the United States have lost access to subsidized birth control as states slash and restructure family planning funds.

Montana and New Jersey have eliminated altogether their state family planning programs. New Hampshire cut its funding by 57 percent and five other states made more modest program trims.

But the biggest impact, by far, has been in Texas.

State lawmakers last fall cut family-planning funds by two-thirds, or nearly $74 million over two years. Within months, half the state-supported family planning clinics in Texas had closed.

The state network, which once provided 220,000 women a year free and low-cost birth control

At the People’s Community Clinic in Austin, the cuts mean that many low-income patients, except the very poorest, are now charged for contraception that used to be free: $5 for a dozen condoms; $10 for a month of birth control pills; $225 for an IUD.

“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.”

This is huge; I remember SleepTrain from the days when it was just 1 or 2 stores in Sacramento —the Howe ‘bout Arden store (if it’s still there) is just maybe 3 blocks from KFBK, where Rush started out. I mean, that’s where all the magic started, where Rush got his big break.

You can comfortable WALK from KFBK to SleepTrain’s first store.

In the early days Rush and SleepTrain were like hand-in-glove, like Clinton and Tyson chicken Arkansas sweat-houses.

This is huge, huge, huge and....I cannot see any way that Rush cannot afford to NOT make an example of them, somehow; if he doesn’t, it will just be work, work, work.

It’s hard, cuz Rush is actually polite, loyal, and a real professional.

don’t understand why conservatives play defense like this. Rush should be interviewing Sheriff Arpaio and Leo Donofrio. But I know he won’t. Meanwhile the Leftists smell blood and are gaining traction. It worked on the NFL deal.

Name-calling, personal attacks, and the like are the domain of the left. Why stoop to their level?

because that is what penetrates their small minds. Poke fun at them, denigrate at every opportunity, laugh and point at them, address them for what they are, idiots, village idiots. Those are the exact tactics Alinsky wanted the left to use on the right and those tactics are the only way to pound their feeble minds into the mud. Kick them when they are down, use the bar stool, never let them up.

I was wrong —I just haven’t been back to Sacramento in some time:

I check the map, and the distance from KFBK where Rush started to where SleepTrain started is about 200 METERS...!!

This is seriously the biggest stab-in-the-back imaginable.
