    All this time and you still haven't listened to or read her testimony? When she spoke before Congress, she was NOT testifying about herself.

    Ignorant is one thing, willfully ignorant is another.

    She did not speak before 'Congress'. She spoke before a small subset of Congress... an entirely Democratic subset. Republicans were not allowed in to question her.

    If she can't afford birth control she definitely needs to learn to control her gag reflex

    Another one who didn't bother to actually listen to Ms. Fluke's testimony...

    Which "she" are you referring to? Certainly not Sandra Fluke since she didn't testify before Congress about herself, but about fellow students at Georgetown. One in particular she mentioned needs contraception to combat ovarian cysts. That woman is a lesbian and does not need contraception for birth control. So which "she" are you talking about?

    Yes, those poor, poor Georgetown students...they deserve our money and other free stuff. They remind me of the poverty I saw backpacking through Africa as a young man. Brings a tear to my eye just thinking about them.

    We all need things to remain healthy: Good food, exercise, and medical care. You are free to pursue these things in America. You are not guaranteed them.

    I loved Spain and Pompeii. Everyone should go.

    What does that have to do with places of employment picking and choosing what drugs will be covered by insurance?

    college students shouldnt have to bear the costs of traveling when tuitions are so high

    taxpayers should be coerced to help subsidize these trips to help reduce the stress of university life

    its a health issue and a right

    not to mention the unfortunate students unable to afford vacations. to be fair and distibute justice equally, these kiddies should have taxpayer funded getaways as well
