Spritely told by Mr. Limbaugh and Myself
Every wonder why people from other nations always think America is at war? Well as one critically thinks about this situation there is a truth to the notion. Or let there at least be one — although there may not be a declared war but it is in our language in which we identify these things — most notably “The [Forever] War on Women, all of the Civil Rights Wars, the War of 1812, the conflict wars based on ideologies such as recently in Ferguson, Missouri or Baltimore Maryland, as well as Seattle Washington, New York City, not to mention in great detail the wars that have been going on in Indiana with Muslims and other representatives of Islam, and what most people do not know or understand well, the more than 140 wars entered into with the native people of this very country.
Again many of these conflicts have been necessary for legislators to understand; moreover, for the sake of individual preservation of rights. I am a very strong supporter of civil rights and the abuses thereto; furthermore, what separated Watts, California say from the rioting in Los Angeles vis-a-vie a Lakers title or the new Los Angeles Rams moving in or any other ridiculous notion such as someone being killed by an officer of the law, Watts was the real deal.
But there is a war being carried on in this country that many of us — both here and from other nations simply do not understand. The first major effort comes out as “The War on Women.”
These entire circumstances are not valid because we have yet to find out who is in fact waging war against women? It is just as efficient to refer to the war(s) as being unreliable. Therefore, whenever one is reading either a news report or listens to radio or watches television the first issue they should be concerned with is the validity and reliability of whatever the claim may be.
On February 29, 2012, Rush Limbaugh, while talking about contraceptive mandates, included remarks about law student Sandra Fluke as a “slut” and “prostitute.” Limbaugh was commenting on Fluke’s speech the previous week to House Democrats in support of mandating insurance coverage for contraceptives. Limbaugh made numerous similar statements over the next two days, leading to the loss of 45 to “more than 100” local and national sponsors and Limbaugh’s apology on his show for some of his comments.
So what? I distinctively remember the Sandra Fluke incident as if it were yesterday. At the time I lived across the street from Georgetown University where Ms. Fluke was attending law school. In the local communities of Georgetown DC, Baltimore MD, most of the community of Washington DC, Alexandra VA, as well as Arlington VA most people — including several reporters thought that this entire happenstance scandal was generated from the White House as was extremely possible considering the amount of scandals pursuant to anything the Obama administration tried breaking through.
As for today the reason I endeavor to ask about the war allegedly on women is because of an article I read from The New York Times.
The article stated, “Gender inequality will be a frequent topic of discussion, sometimes even among men, in many of the panel sessions. Politicians and executives will debate how future skill requirements will affect gender equality, ask whether women should take more leadership roles in science and technology and determine what can be done to end gender biases.”
What bothers me about that particular statement is the use of the word biases which clearly indicates to me that some people believe that there is some kind of plan instigating this bias.
