Me and My Wheelbarrow, Squeakin' Around

I did a Twitter gag on Saturday.

By the way, someone said "You should put this in a post." Let me mention why I didn't.

A post is an investment. It feels more substantial. I feel like when I do a post, I have to turn in a Real Essay or something. Or in this case, a real comedy bit. Like edited.

Twitter isn't like that. There's no investment in a 140 character joke. It doesn't need to be good. I can stop whenever I like. I don't need an ending.

Anyway, a lot of people liked this gag so I'll post it.

The background, the thing I'm spoofing, is Sandra Flake's claim that some woman she heard from -- some "voice" -- told her that she had been raped, but she knew Georgetown's insurance did not cover birth control, so she assumed -- assumed, her word -- that the insurance would not cover rape.

Wouldn't cover a check-up afterwards for STD's. Sandra Fluke said that herself -- this "woman's voice" told her that she assumed that there was a special provision in Georgetown U's insurance stating something like "We don't cover rape. You're on your own."

I find that rather implausible, and to the extent it's plausible at all, I find it to be absurd to claim that because someone assumed that Gerogetown had a special "Screw you, rape-victim" rider that they should be denied their religious liberty to not cover birth control.

Their religious liberty must fall so that people don't make erroneous "assumptions" like this?

Another story was of a woman who got a birth control prescription and then was embarrassed and shocked when she went to CVS (or wherever) and was informed, for the first time, that she'd have to pay for that out of pocket.

That huge $9/month cost.

So she left the pharmacy, shocked, embarrassed, victimized, and traumatized.

In both instances the trauma attached due to a misunderstanding about what Georgetown covered. And the correct position, Fluke maintains, is that the Jesuits should abandon their religious scruples, not, say, that people might pick up a phone and call to inquire about the coverage. Or, say, ask a Reproductive Rights advocate like Sandra Fluke what the insurance covers.

Or that they should actually read the policy.

I almost don't even want to mention that because at this point in our nation's trajectory most people will laugh at this possibility.

And yet, in both cases, simply finding out the terms of coverage would have avoided the traumatization. Shock in one case, forgoing necessary post-rape treatment (including STD testing) in another.

And the media, of course, permitted these silly claims to go forth into the public square as we debate a very serious principle, that of religious liberty, and the proper role of the state in intruding into personal choices.

Personal choices by employers, too. Funny how that part always gets left out.

So if you go here and scroll down to where I first mention "Wheelbarrow," you can read my own testimony, about how I was hit by a car but didn't call the doctor because I assumed, wrongly it turns out, that gross physical injury sustained by truck wasn't cover. It's in reverse order, so once having found the wheelbarrow post, read up, not down.

See, I assumed some things.

Damn confusing coverage!

I too have a tale of Woe, and no one seems interested in it.

Why is my voice to be Silenced by a World Waging War on Women? And also, me?

Even illegal aliens, excuse me, undocumented immigrants, can get treated for things like real medical emergencies like rape and illness at the local hospital, without insurance? Haven't "law students" learned anything about, I don't know, real laws like that?

22 When I was in law school, it was customary for law students to be loaned a not insignificant sum of money for living expenses, included among them rent, food, toilet paper and the rest - I think I got somewhere in the neighborhood of $7-8K per semester on which to live.

So Fluke is saying, in essence, that not only can they not be asked to pay for contraception themselves because they can't afford it, but they shouldn't be asked to use the loan proceeds for their living expenses to pay for it.

Just admit it, you hate women and want to see their health choices curtailed!
It's about women's, er, womyn's health, not about the patriarchy like Rush and rich white men!!!
Why should the women be forced to purchase rubbers, er, condoms, and why do men feel the need to destroy any woman that wants access to healthcare?
Hmm, I'm goin gto think about this...
So Mrs., er...MS Fluke needs birth control pills.
Why? Because she has sex.
But what about a condom you ask?
Yes, what about a rubber, er, condom...would that NOT be a better thing to use for birth control than the pill?
Isn't that really safe sex? What does taking the pill do to stop the world wide epidemic of AIDS?
Nothing.
This whole fucking thing is insane.

27 It's my theory that Sandra Fluke is a brilliant satirist.
Because if you read her testimony and follow her "work" you quickly come the conclusion that NOBODY is that fucking stupid.
Ergo, she has to be a satirist.

Has anyone actually contacted Georgetown to see if one peep of what Sandra said was even remotly true?


I mean...im sure Ms Fluke is a fine, upstanding citizen...but wouldn't a...oh...i don't know...member of the insurance industry, who is associated with Georgetown university have FIRST HAND KNOWLEDGE of these issues, and could give...oh...I don't know...some sort of actual facts and figures on such things.

You know, as opposed to "I heard from a friend of another friend that her friend had this thing, which was like super expensive. And I know that as a FACT."

Wouldn't it be great if someone out there was paid to do some sort of...investigating, of a purely ...journalistic nature?

For some reason, to me at least, this whole Fluke-slut nontroversy isn't funny to me. It's lame for several reasons. One is that the libs and media (BIRM) are using it as the cudgel of the day, forcing the GOP and the right to their line. Second, this woman is pathetic enough to go out in public and demand that a school pay for all her jimmy hats that she could buy herself with a little of that Georgetown tuition. The fact that the media ISN'T calling her out on this is what's truly depressing.

It would not surprise me that undergrads, even Georgetown undergrads would believe that. Seriously. Undergrads these days are fucking morons. They can put a condom on a banana, but they can't tell you when the Civil War happened. Go ahead, talk to a few. You won't be able to handle more than a 5 minute conversation before you want to rip your ears off - manually.

But Fluke arguably has friends in law school. Do you believe for a second that a Georgetown law school student is so stupid that she doesn't know....

Never mind. You're probably right.

Norman was on Medicare, and because of the cuts imposed by Obama, he was denied the care that he desperately needed, and died in Ethel's arms. He served in WWII, raised a family, lived with dignity, but was killed by Obamacare.

And now Ethel has to eat cat food.

68 Dorothy assumed that she couldn't get back to Kansas without the aid of the Wizard of Oz. And since she didn't ask Glinda, "Can I get back to Kansas without going to see the Wizard?" she ended up traipsing across the Land of Oz, being harassed by a wicked witch and putting herself and her friends in danger, in a completely unnecessary quest to meet the Wizard.

DOROTHY: Oh, will you help me? Can you help me?
GLINDA: You don't need to be helped any longer. You've always had the power to go back to Kansas.
DOROTHY: I have?
SCARECROW: Then why didn't you tell her before?
GLINDA: Because she wouldn't have believed me. She had to learn it for herself.


In other words, ASK FIRST. And when an insurance policy from a Catholic institution doesn't cover contraception, instead of disbelieving it, BELIEVE IT.

Actually, the Fluke isn't looking for rubbers. She has no interest in safe sex, just wanton, nameless, irresponsible sex. Fluke was cool with spreading diseases far and wide, so long as she didn't run the risk of being punished with a baby.

81 I posted this on the other thread:

You know why there was a huge uprising against the British in India in 1857? The Indians thought that the British were deliberately greasing their cartridges with sacred animals so they could force the Indians to be alienated from their religion. This situation is actually worse because it's deliberate. A healthy society would be no less outraged than the Indians.

89 Well, that's interesting.

A quick visit to Georgetowns student health insurance website had a PDF of what the plan covered right out and available to the public.

This comes right from Georgetowns Premier Plan booklet.


Exclusions
No benefits will be paid for: a) loss or expense caused by, contributed to, or resulting from; or b)
treatment, service or supplies for, at, or related to:

19: Prescription Drugs, services or supplies as follows, except as specifically provided in the policy:

b) Birth control and/or contraceptives, oral or other, whether medication or device; except as
specifically provided in the policy;

So...appearantly there ARE provisions for birth control/contraceptives that are provided for in this policy.

Gosh, if google provided the answers in under 5 minutes. I have to wonder what an interprising person with a telephone and an afternoon could find out exactly what those exclusions are.

Man, if only some enterprising individual could find this out. I'd be dying to know.

----------

My theory is that shipping a Volt to a dealership in Europe counts as a sale. Futhermore, as an export.

They'll sit on Opel dealer lots for a while, then they'll get shipped on again, counted as a sale again.

Like when Seagate was shipping bricks around the country and counting them as sold hard drives. It all collapsed when someone opened a box expecting a shiny new hard drive and found a brick.

The White House announced the G8 summit will take place in Camp David instead of President Obama's hometown Chicago.
The summit was originally going to take place in President Obama's hometown Chicago, alongside an upcoming NATO summit. In the announcement, White House press secretary Jay Carney said that the NATO meeting would still be in Chicago.
"To facilitate a free-flowing discussion with our close G-8 partners, the President is inviting his fellow G-8 leaders to Camp David on May 18-19 for the G-8 Summit, which will address a broad range of economic, political and security issues," the statement read. "The President will then welcome NATO allies and partners to his hometown of Chicago for the NATO Summit on May 20-21, which will be the premier opportunity this year for the President to continue his efforts to strengthen NATO in order to ensure that the Atlantic Alliance remains the most successful alliance in history, while charting the way forward in Afghanistan."
The city had been had been preparing for the summits with planning additional security measures like added cameras around the city and additional riot gear for law enforcement.

So some guy (I'm assuming here) rapes you and you don't go to the
hospital and get a rape kit done because you think that your insurance
won't cover the plan B PORTION of the rape exam/kit/ et al? So then you
can't press charges? Really?

167 I am so confused. Why does birth control cost MORE THAN TWICE AS MUCH PER YEAR during law school?
According to Ms. Flake?
What, does the buzz you get from rabbit-humping keep you awake for the loads of work you have to do to get by?
Seriously, is this some kind of lawyer joke that they're charged more if they're in law school?

Used to be an odd kids' show called Eerie, Indiana. In one episode, there were these strange twins that never seemed to age. Turned out their mother sealed them into beds made of Tupperware, only bringing them out once in while. Kept them fresh.

Like when Seagate was shipping bricks around the country and
counting them as sold hard drives. It all collapsed when someone opened a
box expecting a shiny new hard drive and found a brick.



When was this? Quick google found something about an old HD compnay called Miniscribe doing brick/HD accounting in the 90s, but did I miss some more recent scandal with Seagate?

199 Tenuous connection, but speaking of the treatment of women, it’s one year since Michelle Malkin’s cousin disappeared and I’m surprised there’s not a post on it.

Full disclosure, I oppose Michelle’s effort to get Google to ignore its privacy policy, but the publicity couldn’t hurt the search for her.

I also find some issues related to it interesting and relevant to people’s lives, for example the fact antidepressants, which she was on, increase suicidal thoughts and attempts, and there is now an FDA black box warning on these drugs’ labels to that effect.

This is a rather curious “side” effect of an antidepressant, and patients and loved ones encouraging others to ‘get help’ should be aware of this fact.

Indeed, expert testimony before Congress shows this may be partly responsible for the recent rash of military and veteran suicides.

Finally, they may be implicated in spree killings and other violence against others and Canada’s drug warning labels contain language to that effect.

Patients and loved ones especially parents making treatment decisions for vulnerqble minor children should be adequately informed about this.

To prevent it.

Let’s offer the option of caring psychotherapy and interpersonal therapy, diet therapy, exercise therapy, etc.

Our loved ones are worth it, aren’t they?

As far as doing a post on this, the one year mark since she went missing, I think Michelle Malkin would appreciate it.
