A little Friday night fun, Fluke edition

I’ve long been a fan of Remy, and though I prefer his singing voice to the rapping variety, this is fun:

A little Mark Steyn to reinforce the idiocy of Sandra Fluke’s demands:

All of us are born with the unalienable right to life, liberty and a lifetime supply of premium ribbed silky-smooth, ultrasensitive, spermicidal, lubricant condoms. No taxation without rubberization, as the Minutemen said. The shot heard round the world and all that.

[…]

Ask the Greeks how easy it is for insolvent nations to wean the populace off unaffordable nanny-state lollipops: When even casual sex requires a state welfare program, you’re pretty much done for.

No, the most basic issue here is not religious morality, individual liberty or fiscal responsibility. It’s that a society in which middle-age children of privilege testify before the most powerful figures in the land to demand state-enforced funding for their sex lives at a time when their government owes more money than anyone has ever owed in the history of the planet is quite simply nuts.

At least Remy’s just asking for cough drops. And I do hope Mr. Steyn doesn’t mind the pairing with a rapper.

UPDATE: linked by Pundette as a “Recommended Read,” (with a much better title, btw). Thanks!

  1. I saw this post yesterday, but it actually took me a day to go and read the Steyn’s piece — a consequence of intentional forgoing of birth control. 😉
    I feel like sending Fluck some condoms. Do you know she’s vacationing in Cali with her BF right now?

    • LOL!

      I’m sure plenty of folks would send Fluke a Costco-box of condoms, but I’m sure it’s beneath her. And what, has she turned into an instant celebrity now?

  2. She should just go fluke herself. -P It was solve everyone’s problem. Steyn is brilliant and I can’t believe the Democ**ts are getting away with this. It’s a travesty.

    Sorry for the off color puns.

  3. That last sentence you quoted from Steyn really resonated for me, too. It’s not rational, and yet I have a couple FB friends that take it seriously . . . so frustrating.

    • Ain’t that the truth. One of my BFFs (and the godmother of my daughter) is a teacher at a Catholic school who is so *overjoyed* that her preferred birth control will soon be covered. I’ve tried to point out the “forest for the trees” but to no avail. When legions of folks like her end up with no insurance, maybe they’ll think again.

      • You can tell your friend that freebies like that drive up the cost of her insurance. The smartest insurance to buy is catastrophic coverage with high co-pays.
        The one time that I bought the Pill was in 06, at Kaiser and with a $10 co-pay, which, I think, is what they automatically charge us for every prescription. Turns out it’s $5 at Target now. Who knew?

      • Who knew indeed, Edge. I’ve tried to explain the concept of “free” costing more in the long run, but yada yada yada.

        I’ve been in the same boat as far as it being cheaper to pay out of pocket without claiming insurance. Funny, isn’t it? I’ve always liked Walter Williams’ analogy: we don’t expect our car insurance to pay for oil changes or car washes. We don’t even ask. But because we *know* our “health” insurance will cover x, y, and z, we don’t even bother to ask how much things cost… if you give consumers a choice, they act upon those choices. Free market. Go figure.
