Rush was wrong -- to apologize

I'm sure you are by now aware of the recent flap over Rush Limbaugh calling Sandra Fluke a "slut" and/or a "prostitute" because of her call for Georgetown Univ. to include "reproductive services" to their Student Health policies. This incident is raising a firestorm across the media spectrum; with eight (so far) long time advertisers withdrawing their business from Mr. Limbaugh's radio program.

This was a planned assault on Conservatives and Mr. Limbaugh was trapped in the net...I would have thought he was smarter than that, but alas it seems he wasn't.

Why do I think this? Seems that some facts have come out that show Ms. Fluke isn't exactly as first portrayed when the story first broke. She was portrayed in the beginning as a naive 23 yo undergraduate at Georgetown that was shocked to find that the University, having strong ties with the Catholic church didn't provide "reproductive" services (ie birth control pills). She stated in Congressional hearings that it would cost her over $3000. over the course of her tenure at Georgetown to pay for such services out of pocket.

The fact is though, that Ms. Fluke is 30 years old, and has been an ardent activist on feminist issues for over 8 years; moreover, she decided to attend Georgetown University SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE, as a Catholic institution, didn't provide reproductive services and she felt that this was a major wrong that she could use the courts to redress.

Now, assume Ms. Fluke decides to use the cheapest form of birth control; the condom, and decides purchase her own condoms. Buying them in the 36 pack at walmart costs as little as 38.8 cents each. So, $3000 would purchase 7732 condoms. Assuming 6 years of school, that is 1289 condoms per year, or 3.5 condoms per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.
Seems that Ms. Fluke must have to have an extremely...brisk? life if her figures are to hold to the truth.

Birth control pills average somewhere around $10. per month, or $120. per annum; so at the most it would have cost her a total of $720. for a six year course of study. Wonder what the other $2280.00 was for? Motel fees and room service perhaps?

I don't know about you, but when I was in school any woman that used 3.5 condoms a day would have been what we quaintly called a "slut"...,or if she got payed for the encounter, a "prostitute". (although, to be fair, if she had only 3.5 paid encounters a day, she must have been a high class call girl, not your average girl on the street corner in the shady part of town)

Rush MAY have been trying to "demonstrate absurdity by being absurd" as he often claims, but in this instance, I believe the terms were absolutely spot on the money,by the figures Ms. Fluke herself cited.

Thanks for the suggestions about credit repair on this amazing blog. A few things i would advice people is usually to give up the actual mentality that they'll buy currently and pay out later. Being a society we tend to do this for many factors. This includes vacations, furniture, in addition to items we would like. However, you have to separate your current wants from the needs. When you are working to improve your credit score make some trade-offs. For example you can shop online to save money or you can visit second hand suppliers instead of high-priced department stores regarding clothing.
