You stay safe!
I was reading about the reaction to that Georgetown law student, Rush, Boehner, etc-and I’ve come to the conclusion that some people are just throwing reason out the window and spewing the kind of illogical nastiness we expect from the left.
As far as I’m concerned, while we can see that the woman is clueless, we do not know if she is a “slut”. On the other hand, the woman put her sex life and that of others on the public stage-that was tasteless and stupid on her part and she really shouldn’t be surprised at the reaction she got-there is no high ground in this dustup-both sides are rolling in the mud.
A+++ Excellent. The fog and the woods sound delightful.
As for the college slut, she asked for it. Unlike AB, she has no idea how to play the media. Just another taker exposing herself. Bet her parents are proud.
OMG Ti, are you messing with the self esteem of our students by not properly inflating their grades? ; )
Oh for heavens sake! Sucking the honey dropper she used on the dog!
I have to fly over it.
If that’s anything like a honeydipper, I wouldn’t put my mouth on it.
#1 u r gross #2 I thought honey was bad for dogs #3 honey is gross #4 eating after your dog is sick. Eating after your sick dog is insane.
Honey is a choking hazard for little kids. It would never occur to me to give it to a dog. I doubt it would hurt them if they licked it off of something.
and to think people eat raw honey as a health food. ((shudder))
In regard to the Georgetown law student-of course she asked for it-I just don’t see the point in name calling-that is just as ill-mannered as her idiotic public comments.
It makes more sense to me to point out the lack of social saavy of someone who puts their sex life out to the media, never mind her ASSuming that her classmates share her overactive libido, or require assistance to finance birth control for their liasons.
And someone should remind her that her little publicity stunt has an unlimited life on the internet, and is most certainly not the best addition to her future resume as an attorney. There is a much better way to smack people like that than using words like “slut”, “whore”, etc.
I had that annual experience of finding spring at Wegmans today......bright colors, pretty spring things for the yard.......gives me hope this cold, rainy, sometimes snowy, dreary winter is coming to an end for another year.
Oh good! I’m thinking to go tomorrow. Xshub leaving first thing for the upstate. He’s going to bring his dad back for a weeks visit on Sunday.
Name calling? LOL All I heard Rush say was that if he was paying for some college student’s sex life he wants videos of it so that he knows he’s getting his money’s worth.
I have called her a slut, or a lesbo who doesn’t need any contraception. She was a useful tool for the left, what did she expect?
He’s driving? Sat looks like more rain, but in the 50s. I hope he has a fun trip. At least his father gets to go south for awhile.
Check out the monkey kiddie plates at Wegmans....I got them to go with the glasses I gave the girls for Christmas. Bright turquoise with happy monkeys on them. For their Easter treat bags.
I don’t eat after my pets, period-that doesn’t sound very smart.
I buy honey from a neighbor on the next road who keeps bees-I use it in recipes that call for honey or (sometimes) sugar. I’m not familiar with eating it as a health food, but it is used as part of a popular natural treatment for allergies by exposing one to small amounts of pollen. You do have to use only honey from your local area to get the right pollen.
I agree. There is a difference between very clearly pointing out the meaning of someone’s behavior and calling them a name.
I liked the video remark- surely we have the right to expect either product or service for our money-at the very least we deserve to be amused by what she was given money for.
I’ve called the dumbass girl much worse than “slut”-I just would not do it in the public press.
RUSH: Oh, yeah, I'm gonna deal with this. I'm gonna deal with it. I think this is hilarious. Absolutely hilarious. The left has been thrown into an outright conniption fit! This is "phony soldiers" times ten. Oh, ten times worse than phony soldiers. The reaction that they are having to what I said yesterday about Susan Fluke -- or Sandra Fluke, whatever her name is -- the Georgetown student who went before a congressional committee and said she's having so much sex, she's going broke buying contraceptives and wants us to buy them. I said, "Well, what would you call someone who wants us to pay for her to have sex? What would you call that woman? You'd call 'em a slut, a prostitute or whatever."...and he did say something like that....but, again, she wants to run with the big dogs she needs to take the flak.
