    In their never ending effort to find an issue with traction to harm President Obama's reelection bid, the GOP is now making an hysterical appeal on the issue of contraception.

    Inquiring minds want to know, why hasn't there been any debate on men and vasectomy? Why does a Romney supporter tell women to put an aspirin between their legs an ignore the obvious (it takes two ), that being the responsibility of the man? What business is it that a political party so obsessed with liberty - in the abstract - continues to put women aside without even a blink of the eye?

    "an aspirin between their legs "???????????


    That's not going to do a damn thing. If someone actually said that they need sex education.

    lol, people are trying to find a way to "harm" the boykings re-election?

    no one has to do a damn thing for that. He's doing a FINE job of doing it all on his own.

    this contraception MANDATE on the churches is a DOOZY and the people are taking notice.

    His approvals in the LOW 40's

    And I for am a happy camper...

    I just asked the question. So, does the health insurance coverage of men employed by the Catholic Church cover a man's vasectomy?

    Do the insurance companies who provide health care coverage to men working for the Catholic Church provide for vasectomys?

    Simple question, but one with rather profound consequences.

    Maybe the proposal was introduced for some reasons? (*stares in a suggestive manner*)


    But the real irony is that even though the religious community is against it and has been making a noise, Polls and feedback show that the majority are FOR it.




    (Note: He said that women FOR it were 58 to 34)

    Where are the practicing Catholics? Warrior and California Girl have been defenders of all things Pope related, they must know if men are approved in having vasectomies. Their silence is Roaring!
