I'm retired military with over 24 years in the Military, I just can not believe the military would allow a Female showiest and racist radio person like Rush Limbaugh’s continue to spread hate. It's prove to me the Pentagon does not care about woman, minorities or The President of our which Rush hate. This what upset about Limbaugh said about Georgetown Law Student:
The Georgetown Law School student derided as a “slut” and a “prostitute” by conservative talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh told ABC News Friday that the talk show host’s comments were “hurtful” and an attempt to silence women who speak out, especially on issues relating to women’s health care. Rush Limbaugh: Apology statement was more of a justification of his behavior with an added "comment to appease those he knows are flocking away from him," all the while ranting on about how correct he was in making the statement anyhow. Did you see where he states the following: "My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir? I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices." So, let's break this down: He is apologizing for his "CHOICE OF WORDS," not his belief. That is, he still believes her to be what he called her. Second, he seems to take glee in the notion that he created a national stir? Stir? How about outrage? Does he not know that 52 percent of the electorate is comprised of females? The GOTP can thank him on November 3, 2012 for all of the women in this Country voting for the current President and for the President now re-connecting to his base of younger voters. And then finally, I "sincerely apologize to Miss Fluke for the word choices." This is marginalization at its best. Once again: It seems he is indicating not an apology for slandering her, or attempting to ruin her reputation as much as he is concerned about his "word choices." He STILL however, believes in his position. Hardly an apology!
Birth Control for millions of women is just not about preventing pregnancy. It is used to help control endometriosis and ovarian cysts. It is as important to their health as blood pressure meds, statins for heart disease and insulin for diabetics.... American Force Network Shame on you!
