Punishing the "Shameless Hussy" is at the heart of denying contraceptives to women.

Let's get right to it. Many religious people and other conservatives think that contraceptives are used by promiscuous, single women. And that "allowing" them contraceptives contribute to their shameful ways. That's the philosophy behind this case and this decision.

The truth is that women use contraceptives for other health reasons besides contraception, and logically, the heaviest users of birth control are MARRIED WOMEN who have regular sex with their HUSBANDS.

We're living in regressive culture that's backed by the greedy 1% who side with the regressives so that they can protect their wealth.

Once and for all, Reproductive medicine is a normal part of healthcare for women.

Only regressive assholes would think differently. We have a SCOTUS that does not understand women.

What the American people really don't understand about the 1%.

In the great film, "Chinatown", there's this great exchange between the gumshoe detective, Jake Gittes, and the rich corrupted, Noah Cross:

Jake Gittes: How much are you worth?

Noah Cross: I have no idea. How much do you want?

Jake Gittes: I just wanna know what you're worth. More than 10 million?

Noah Cross: Oh my, yes!

Jake Gittes: Why are you doing it? How much better can you eat? What could you buy that you can't already afford?

Noah Cross: The future, Mr. Gittes! The future.

And there it is. Most Americans think that the 1% can just buy more stuff than they can, and that's all. When that's not what the 1% wants. What they want to do is to control the future. They want their wealth to live on forever and have their progeny control the world through their wealth.

The top 1% wants to create an economic royal class whose power cannot be questioned or controlled by anyone, esp. government. If they want us to go to war with another nation, then it's off to war. if they want to pollute the planet, then pollution it is. If they want bailouts from bad investments, then that's what they get.

It's not about buying consumer goods. It's about the future.

Went to a presentation tonight on Swift. Was told that Objective C is dead.

Any thoughts?

International Varieties of DU

DU is an American based political message board. What if Skinner and EarlG franchised it out to other countries? What would a UK DU board look like? Or a French DU message board? Or a Brazilian one?

SPOILER ALERT: Emma wins the Game of Thrones

Her dragons...er...hu...kittehs have spoken.

Shakespeare's Cat

Silent thread for Eric Cantor's career.

Fine. I'll say it. I like to breast feed in the Olive Garden.

Yes, I am a man, and yes, I don't have any babies. Also, yes, it does make for awkward situations when I try to breast feed babies of complete strangers.

Regardless, I said it.

Isn't Sarah Manning's Baby Daddy on "Orphan Black" the same guy that's hooking up with

Daenerys on Game of Thrones? Dude gets around.
