Letters To The Editor - Liberals escape wrath for saying vile things


In response to Mr. Raddatz letter on Rush Limbaugh: I am not defending what Limbaugh said but I have yet to have a liberal tell me why Limbaugh is so bad when Bill Maher and Jon Stewart say things just as bad and worse on a regular basis.

They say Maher is a comedian so that gives him the right to say these things, No, it does not.

Stewart placed a nativity scene over a woman's vagina. That is despicable. As much as I hate to fly, I will fly Delta from now on, because it pulled its ads from his show.

Chris Matthews has wondered aloud whether Sarah Palin is "capable of thinking" and has called Bachmann a "balloon head" and she is "lucky we still don't have literacy tests out there."

Once again I ask, why is it OK for these people to say these things, but the minute a conservative talk show host or a conservative person says one thing, they are ripped apart? You know how to turn your radio station dial? I don't watch Maher or Stewart, as an adult I have that choice.

President Obama announced what he described as an "accommodation" for religiously affiliated organizations that buy commercial insurance but object, for religious reasons, to covering contraceptives and sterilization procedures. In these cases, the White House said, the insurer "will be required to provide contraception coverage to women free of charge."

The Department of Health and Human Services went further and said it would propose a similar requirement for group health plans sponsored by religious organizations that insure themselves.

This is why they are picking my pocket: I pay taxes, so my money goes to pay for these insurances and coverage of free birth control.

Good grief, these people are supposed to be adults. Quit whining and take responsibility for your own actions instead of trying to get everyone else to pay for your personal desires and wants.

It is their responsibility to take care of their sexual needs, not me or anyone else. Nor should the government be forcing Catholic colleges to go against their beliefs. This is an intrusion into religious beliefs and the federal government has no right to do that.

Strangely, Jon Stewart just plays "news" video clips. His commentary is about what we've just watched without the spin. The truth is stranger than fiction!
