Rush “Sincerely” wants his sponsors back, Komenizing, and hope for the 3rd Wave.

Text: ©Copyright, Uppity Woman 2012. All Rights Reverved. (In short, don’t you deliberately steal my writing again and send it out viral, “anonymous” and bastardized).

***

I am actually beginning to believe there is hope for the 3rd Wave, even if it is kind of late. I think they began to really “Get It” during the Komen travesty. It was a pivotal moment when The Vast, and I do mean Vast, majority of women finally put away scattered factions and got together, positively refusing to allow the Komen foundation to be taken over by pod people whose interests are religious and not related to the health of women. Yes, I said “Komenized”. I decided that from that day forward, Komenized is a great word for whenever women wake up and refuse to take this shit.

(RUSCIGAR INSERT HERE) Rush Limbaugh got Komenized and, despite the fact that I have always hated that pig and his complete disdain for women, nothing he has ever said revealed his filthy mind more than when he called Sandra Fluke a Slut and deduced that she has so much sex she can’t afford her birth control.

This attitude did double duty. It not only once again exposed Rush for the mud-eating pig he is, but it also revealed how very ignorant he is. For a woman on birth control pills, it doesn’t matter if she sleeps with 10 men, 1 man or NO men. The cost of her birth control pills is exactly the same. So in addition to being a pig, Rush is a seriously ignorant moron. No wonder his marriages have been a revolving door. One more thing: As I mentioned several times,

Rush has been married 4 times. He has no children. I shall assume it would be safe to say that Rush either .

a) Never had sex with any of his wives or
b) Participated in birth control which makes him a SLUT or
c) Shoots blanks.

Given his ongoing crude behaviors designed to Silence all those broads and, given his obvious passionate hatred toward women through the years, any of those three explanations is believable. This is a demeaning, sexist, low-class man who simply shrivels in his shorts over his own inadequacies and the threat of women to his fake macho Oooooooo Rahhhhhh facade. It consumes him. Let’s face it, he’s the guy you catch picking his nose at the traffic light, who thinks you Want him because you are staring.

The moral high ground doesn’t exactly belong to an ACLU-hating drug addict who hypocritically hired ACLU’s Roy Black to keep his ass out of jail. It doesn’t exactly belong to a swine who got caught on his way back from the Dominican Republic with a boatload of illegal Viagra in his suitcase either. Perhaps Rush wanted some “sex tapes” to tide him over between trips to the Dominican Republic. One would hope Rush enjoys his trips to the Dominican Republic for the scenery and calming effect instead of its reputation for offering very young boys and girls as prostitutes for big fat slobs who need Viagra in an IV line.

I recognize that many people joined in on #Flushrushnow, not because they actually give a rat’s ass about women, but because they hate Rush and his politics. I am not one of them. I hate him because he is the poster boy, second only to  the Former Glenn Beck and tied with Bill Maher, for women-bashing using filth and degradation. I recognized long ago that the hijacked Democratic Party sucks just as much as the hijacked Republican Party when it comes to ‘allowing’ women their birthrights and then removing their birthrights, dependent on their own needs. And no woman who supported Hillary in 2008 will ever forget the filth and threats the Left slung at us. Never. Emphasis on Never.

As I mentioned, I am also offended by veteran pig Bill Maher for the exact same reason I find Rush Limbaugh offensive, and I find it amazing that women tolerate his degrading filth and don’t realize that when you degrade one woman, you degrade them all. I long for the day when women can finally no longer stand his wincingly awful behavior toward their gender, the day when they begin to separate political parties from their own abusers — and Maher’s turn comes. I long for the day when women put parties that equally do not care about them aside and recognize that a President who signed a Stupak Executive Order is not looking out for their best interests, but is instead using them as bargaining chips. I long for the day when a President does not get a Free Pass when he pulls the rug out from under an accomplished woman commencement speaker as if she were a hockey puck, and shoves himself in her place in  his re-election year, I long for the day when women refuse to let the media, ‘liberal’ OR ‘conservative’ get away with the kind of sexist innuendoes  and orchestrated bashings that are designed to help keep the numbers of women in power down. But for now, I am completely thrilled that Rush has finally been called down on his own smelly carpet for his filthy, sexist treatment of women whose politics he doesn’t like. At least now I can say, One of these misogynist pigs has awakened women to their Numbers Power. One of them has been Komenized.

There was an old saying in corporate America that still rings true today:

Hit them in their wallets and their hearts and minds will follow.

This is why Rush Almost-Apologized. Gobsmacked that wimminz and the remaining sincere men in the USA could strip him of his sponsors in  a few days, Rush suddenly got ‘sorry’ for calling  Sandra Fluke, also known as “Susan” Fluke to Rush, a “slut”. He couldn’t remember her name but he remembered all his usual degrading words. This was just one more way of minimizing her existence as a human being, of course.

Now, onto what #Flushrushnow achieved for Rush to store in his memory bank.

Here’s a possibly-partial list of sponsors that …um….pulled out…. as a result of the #flushrushnow campaign.

(Updated) @Citrix @Sleeptrain @Sleepnumber @Quickenloans @Legalzoom @Carbonite @AOL @Allstate @Sears @JCPenney @Capitalone @Netflix @Bonobos @ Geico

Also: Hadeed Carpet, Bare Escentuals,  Sensa, Vitacost, Thompson Creek Windows, Polycom,  Service Magic, AccuQuote Life Insurance,  John Deere, Stamps.com,  St. Vincent’s Medical Center, Bethesda Sedation Dentistry, Cascades Dental, Philadelphia Orchestra, Goodwill Industries, Heart & Body Extract,  Downeast Energy, Matrix Direct, Reputation Rhino, Tax Resolution.

The best one of all was @Carbonite. Carbonite simply would not remove its sponsorship. And then, miracle of miracles, CEO “Friend” suddenly “updated” his  passive-resistant official statement, and dropped Rush like yesterday’s newspaper…after his faux apology. As they say, Better Late Than Never. In a statement on their website, Carbonite’s CEO declared that the “Outcry was the worst I’ve ever seen”. Read Mr. Friend’s full statement with his sudden 180 stance here. This happened because he counted up the mounting tweets of outrage. But hey, better late than never.

The worst offender was and remains @Proflowers, who continue to tweet stupid, insincere drivel about how they “don’t endorse” what Rush said and “Thank you for your feedback”. Seriously, @proflowers, you suck. I guess nobody reminded you that women are generally the largest recipients of flowers. Eff off. I would swallow a broom sideways before I ever do business with you. Hope you enjoy your MANY latest Reviews on Amazon.

@Century21 remains a guarded mystery. Apparently listed on Rush’s site as a Sponsor Contact, their CEO denied being a sponsor of Rush’s show several times before the cock crowed. I guess one of them is a liar.

Any Questions?

Yes, 3rd wave. I am very proud that you have learned that flash mob dancing to “9 to 5′ and “She Works Hard For The Money” does not work. Komenizing  works. It especially works when women give no Free Passes. Not to a person. Not to a party. Not even to a President with a “D” after his name. Once you recognize this, the creatures on Capitol Hill and whatever current creature is in the White House at any time will Know not to Keep You Down any longer. You don’t Ask for your rights. You Take them. You were born with them, and regardless of what resident SCOTUS sexist pig Scalia says, you damned WILL BE protected by the Constitution when, as 51% of the population, you DEMAND to be Protected by the Constitution. Which brings me to this: Tell Barack Obama if he wants your vote, he had best spend more time on getting the Fair Pay Act and the ERA passed then he spends on fundraisers. Then and only then will you Know he is dedicated to your best interests. Words? They are just words. Hell, I’ll vote for him myself if he does that. No kidding. But for now, he has Forsaken you. So have Harry and Nancy. They had two years with the power to effect these laws and sat on their hands, for once these laws are enacted, they no longer can hold them over your heads for your money, your volunteer efforts, and your votes. Let them know you Know it. And for Chrissakes, do not EVER let a Movement tell you not to report your rape because it will “hurt the cause” and then show up to haul their water in the morning!!!! There is no greater cause than your equal rights as a HUMAN BEING. Occupy Your Rights! And please take the time to remember: Your mothers and grandmothers stood in the rain and snow for you. Keep what you have been given through vigilance. They want nothing more for you than that you should have the right not to be alternately controlled by one of two Patriarchies. We wish you luck and nothing less. I’m a small blogger and I don’t even know if many of you will read this. But I would just like to say: You GO Girls!

I still have one remaining question though:

Who are you and what have you done with NOW National? This is an organization that would have, at one time, been the full-throttle leader of outrage against misogyny and sexism. Their presence during the Rush affair was akin to Crickets for an organization that was once the First Stop for Women who were sick and tired of being shoved around. I saw NOW-NY front and center on Twitter. But you have simply got to take a look at the absence of passion at NOW National, which spent the preponderance of their time playing Dr. Ruth on #loveyourbody during the entire #Flushrushnow movement. It does appear that NOW has gone the route of AARP. They have the name but not the fire or the passion of purpose any longer. They don’t even have the energy to follow more than 260 twitter accounts and it’s hard to believe that they are barely a shadow of their former selves, a legacy of Kim Gandy’s politicking. This is a loss, but as with all losses, they were forgotten in the Noise. One day they will be Forgotten, period. But I have faith after what I have seen in the past month with the Audacity of Komen and the Slutification of Rush, National NOW will one day be Replaced. Here’s hoping Gloria Steinem will spend a teeny-weeny bit of her time to stop holding fundraisers in her penthouse for politicians who sign Stupak Orders— and at least bequeath some of her past fire to somebody else who isn’t pretending everything is Just Fine. Obviously, Gloria isn’t using that fire any longer anyways.

Most Admired Woman – 16 Consecutive Years.

Finally, I don’t care whether you like it or not, this is what the women of the USA lost in the 2008 Year Of The Woman Bashing:

–Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, these clowns in Congress wouldn’t even be trying to heap this degrading crap upon women.

–Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, The Pope would have been told to run the Vatican, not the country.

–Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, we would have a President who actually IS “What a Feminist Looks Like”.

–Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, odds would have been good that she would have shown up at Issa’s hearing personally–and waited for that swine to dare tell her she’s not qualified.

–Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, the Attorney General would be rightfully challenging the Constitutionality of forcing women into vaginal probes and consideration of ludicrous laws that make killing doctors “Justifiable Homicide”.Moronic Dipwads wouldn’t be calling Girl Scouts Lesbians.

–Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, The Fair Pay act would have been passed in the first two years of her Presidency, during which time our so-called “Party of Women” did indeed forsake us and ignore these necessary acts.

–Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, our President wouldn’t be using women as bargaining chips. The Stupak Amendment wouldn’t have even been a thought, much less bear the signature of “What A Feminist Looks Like”.

–Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, women wouldn’t be used as hockey pucks and tools by which a President can divert attention.

–Reality: The past four years have already proven: If Hillary Clinton were President, she would be spending more time working on your behalf and less time vacationing and golfing.

All of these realities are why both patriarchies couldn’t tolerate the thought of a Hillary Presidency. How EVER would they control you women then????? The saddest part is they actually got plenty of women to help enable them against their own best interests.

Reality: You Reap What You Sow. And don’t tell me to “Give it up”. You already gave it up. Now you will have to work all the harder, because as Roy Blunt said, “This isn’t over”. Be prepared.

  1. Flush Rush.

  2. I can picture YOU standing in the rain, Uppity. A barnburner you have here.

  3. Was it Rush who coined the term, “Feminazi”? I think it was then that the feminist movement started to go downhill. I had friends who began to distance themselves from the word “feminist”. They’d say they agreed with equal rights for women….but they weren’t a “feminist”, like it was a bad word.
    I also remember when Rush said that Michael J Fox was faking his Parkinson’s disease. The man, and I use that term loosely, is scum.

  4. You want to know what all this REALLY does to Rush? It builds his popularity among his dittohead listeners. People who dislike Rush hated this gasbag long before this incidence and those that do like him could not care less about offending the anti-rush crowd. This is a distraction….a short-lived media created event to entertain us and avoid addressing real problems. We all laughed when Obama was pictured as what a feminist looks like. Well….this issue is not what misogyny looks like and, truly, the folks condemning Rush the most about this are among those who have a long and profound hatred of women.

  5. I disagree with you on one point jay, it doesn’t build his popularity with his dittoheads, they will love him no matter what. What is does is push back. It forces the cockroaches who follow Rush to scurry under the counter to continue their hating. We’ll never get rid of the haters, but we can push back.

  6. jay, really we are very much aware that Obama started all of this as a diversion. VERY aware. However, it’s really easy for someone who is not a woman with her rights threatened to tell us we should just ignore it all and let people make laws about vagina probes and killing abortion doctors under the cover of justifiable homicide. The TRUTH is, Jay, THIS is how things happen to women when they ignore distractions. Frankly, I am sick and tired of being guilted into letting things go for the Greater Cause.THERE IS NO GREATER CAUSE then the freedom of my sisters and the protection of their rights! Women are getting sick of tired of being told to table their little pissant issues, such as FREEDOM to MAKE THEIR OWN DECISIONS because there is something “more” important going on here. Fuck that, jay.

  7. And one more thing. WHen people call the girl scouts a lesbian conspiracy and tell me that women have to Explain their lives away just to get their own health care needs, and when a pope starts running our country with his sexist pig doctrines, and states start making laws forcing women into vaginal probes……trust me…..WE ARE NOT “ENTERTAINED”. What part of this do you guys so often seem not to understand?????????????????????/

    We wimminz are not stupid jay. We know why this started. We also know if we do nothing plenty of shit is going to be poured upon us if we don’t act. I am horrifically insulted right now that you would TRIVIALIZE the lawmaking efforts resulting from this “diversion”. But then it doesn’t affect YOUR life.

  8. It’s only when we push back against all because of the issue of hate, not just pick and choose because of politics, that anything will be accomplished. Calling Fluke a slut is wrong. Calling Clinton a bitch is wrong. Calling Palin a cunt is wrong. This is endemic of a problem in our society that is absolutely not belonging just to rightwingnut radio hosts.

  9. Uppity….My genitalia may be different…but rights denied to any are denied to me. I don’t give a shit about what Rush blathers on the radio. If Congress really wants to do something….bring out the equal rights bill.

  10. Then please don’t come here with your finger under my nose and tell me I am stupid for taking what is going on seriously just because it was started as a diversion.

    I don’t care who still loves Rush and who doesn’t. What I care about is he knows now that he’s not getting his free ride with his filthy mouth any longer. And believe me, he KNOWs it now.

  11. hmmmm…..don’t think I mentioned or even implied anybody being stupid….just trying to throw out my two cents. Sorry.

  12. It’s ALWAYS the wrong time for women to put their collective foot down, isn’t it? Well I’m not buying. From now on, it’s always the right time. I don’t give a SHIT what else is going on around me. We got in this condition by ‘waiting for the right time” while we are being ravaged day and night.

  13. We all laughed when Obama was pictured as what a feminist looks like.

    Definitely didn’t laugh. More like, gnashed my teeth and spat in disgust and railed at the idiocy of all the women who voted for him.

  14. Was it Rush who coined the term, “Feminazi”?

    Ayup…the very same!

  15. I agree NES, I didn’t laugh when Obama made the cover of Ms as “What a Feminist Looks Like”. I know a women’s studies professor who had that cover on the door of her office…..I couldn’t believe it.

  16. UW: Go To My PC pulled out too.

    This is one fabulous righteous rant!!

  17. And I too had a coniption when that This is what a feminist looks like pic came out. As if.

  18. How come it’s never the wrong time (or a waste of time) for the wingnuts to rise up in righteous indignation when a Democrat says something stupid and/or offensive?

  19. If Congress really wants to do something…

    This isn’t about congress. This is about the general public reacting to something outrageous and offensive that came out of Rush’s face sphincter.

  20. Finally, I don’t care whether you like it or not, this is what the women of the USA lost in the 2008 Year Of The Woman Bashing:

    *applause!*

  21. Congress will never “bring out the ERA”….women have to storm the doors and shove it in their faces.

  22. This story made me physically ill….and I did NOT click on the youtube video. My heart breaks for the young girls of this generation.

    http://www.dailynews.com/news/ci_20096377

  23. Excellent post Uppity!

  24. Toddler Found Alone In Field 10 Miles From Family’s Home After Tornado

    Her family was killed and she’s in critical condition.

  25. Spam must know when I’m mad. It put jay in its folder. Sorry Jay, just so you know I didn’t do that.

  26. Someone posted this article next door. Its very good:

    http://www.denverpost.com/commented/ci_20083126?source=commented-

    “Yet House Republicans shamefully refused to let a female witness testify at an all-male hearing on the topic last month. What argument of conscience is worth consider-ing if the only way to win is by silencing the opposition?

    Had Republicans been willing to listen, they would have learned about a Georgetown University student who lost an ovary after being denied coverage for birth control pills to treat her ovarian cancer.

    In fact, more than half of pill users rely on contraception in part for medical reasons like reducing menstrual pain, treating excessive bleeding and preventing migraines. The overlap between women who also use contraception to prevent pregnancy illustrates how difficult it is to sort morality from health care — and why religion has no place in determining public policy.”

  27. Ah it was the “C” word. We spam the C word. That explains it.

    This is endemic of a problem in our society that is absolutely not belonging just to rightwingnut radio hosts.

    Yes and I made that pretty clear in several places in the post. That doesn’t get Rush a free pass.

  28. I heard that about Lush. Coming home from one of the Central Am countries that specializes in child prostitution with a suitcase full of viagra. He’s such a pig. I’ve read somewhere that a lot of people that take cruises to Mexico buy viagra down there cuz its cheaper (and no Rx) than here. Isn’t Lush filthy rich? Why didn’t he just buy it here? Makes you wonder what he’s going to do with a suitcase worth of it.

  29. Also, his apology to Sandra Fluke wasn’t really an apology at all.

  30. Yes and I made that pretty clear in several places in the post. That doesn’t get Rush a free pass.

    Totally agree. But, the next stop needs to be the bashing of people like Meher for the same. But, that’ll never happen.

  31. SophieCT, thanks for that article re Santorum on the last thread. Very interesting and spot-on. I agree with the author re the strategy that’d save the GOP, but this year the cost (4 more years of BO) is too steep to pay.

  32. Uppity, you are fabulous. Love this one. And I welled up with tears throughout this reading. It strikes deep because you captured my life. My childhood, my teen years, my wife years, my corporate years, my ever present fight to be an equal. And most of all you captured my dreams of the one woman who could have and certainly without doubt would have fulfilled my life-time of fighting my own battles and the battles of others and rights for all.

    And Jay, there is no way in hell any of us wimmenz “laughed” at that moronic mag cover. I was furious that whole time. My anger rarely subsided and I was so full of fury that the only way to release it was in streams of emails to everyone I knew and posts on a dozen boards expressing my outrage.

    Laugh? I guess when you are a male it is just a little thing when the real feminist gets replaced with a thief and a fraud who had 99 problems but a bitch ain’t one. In fact, I am still pissed but under control most of the time now. Bros before hoes and iron my shirt. All the kicks we took made us bitter old deadender hags with cankles who get periodically down.

  33. Also, his apology to Sandra Fluke wasn’t really an apology at all.

    No kidding!

  34. It warms the cockles of my cold hard heart to see so many people out to get Lush. There’s a Flush Rush facebook page with lots of great stuff on it. Look at some of these comments about Pro Flowers:

    “Another way to hit ProFlowers who continue to support Limbaugh. Go to Amazon and give them a one star rating in their consumer reviews. We’ve brought them down from a 5 star to a 2 star in 24 hours. Let’s go for a 1.”

    “It seems Proflowers is deleting comment as fast as they can but they cannot keep up with the negatives~ let’s get over to their facebook page and keep them on the ropes!”

    “Proflowers is owned by Commerce Provided which is owned by Liberty Media which is owned by giant QVC. That is the company we need to target. Proflowers is small potatoes in comparison and can just blowoff the feedback for a while. So we need to send some feedback to QVC. As an interesting footnote there is an affiliation with Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. I think I smell a rat!”

  35. God Uppity- I just love you- I got all the way to the part about what we SHOULD have had- and then the tears started flowing. Some days I despair of living long enough to see a woman in the White House. My Nana passed in 78. My Mom is 86- will she make it to 2016? Will there be a woman on the ticket? HOW LONG must we wait?
    As I have repeatedly told all the young women (and young men) with whom I come into contact- DEMAND your rights! It is not, really, about Roe V Wade- it IS about control. About whether we are fully functioning human beings, entitled to all the rights and responsibilities of free citizens of this here United States of America- and of the world.
    Some of them GET IT. Some do not sadly. But I preach on, varying my presentation to the audience at hand.
    It amazes me sometimes when I stop and look at how many of my daughter’s and son’s friends from Jr High and High school keep in touch with me- some only on facebook- and others in a more personal way. Many of them “like” my facebook posts on these issues- and so I am not devoid of hope.
    The fundienatics can all go straight to hell- damn them all- damn them all to the fires of Hell!

  36. “Proflowers for the misogynist in you”

    “Don’t “rush” me these flowers”

    Just the titles alone of the amazon reviews are great!

  37. Karen, that’s what I meant about bleeding on my laptop. I felt a lot of emotion writing parts of this post. The kind of emotion someone who is not a woman can possibly relate to beyond caring. So yeah, I’m a bit defensive.

    The “Reality” part of this post on Hillary…those realities are the reason the left and the right needed to get rid of hillary. How would they control is with her as president? And they suckered other women to go along with them too.

    Women have destroyed themselves by believing in men who manipulate them and then hobble them.

  38. mom, I love her too. And I don’t just say good things about our Upps because she pays me $50 every time I praise her. Nope. That ain’t why.

    It is her killer meatloaf, chicken, pie, mac n cheese, pasta with hot sausage, cookies, ribs, mashed potatoes and gravy.

    But that’s not all. I really come here because Bill is such a pussycat.

  39. OMG that Amazon link is a RIOT. Proflowers is getting KILLED.

  40. Yeah, somebody better realize over at Proflowers that we sluts mean business. Don’t they know that we wimmez gets all the flowers and we spread our legs – like the old joke says – because our menz are too cheap to buy us a vase.

  41. I heard the Pro Flowers advertisement on Rush Limbaugh’s show recently and thought, “I know a whore. I should get her some flowers.” So, I gave my whore friend the flowers with a card that said “Thanks, Whore”. She called me later that day to say the flowers were beautiful and the whores she works with thought they were beautiful too. I felt touched that they appreciated them. I think the babies at the maternity ward would have liked them as well, but the whores I sent the flowers to work with the premature babies who for the most part can’t see.
    Most of you probably know a whore or two who would enjoy these gorgeous flowers, because I am sure there isn’t a local florist in your town who would provide flowers to whores

  42. Amy Siskind & co. realized what a useless, hypocritical, dithering, self serving organization NOW had become 4 yrs ago and formed THE NEW AGENDA. http://www.thenewagenda.net NOW has indeed gone the way of AARP but take heart, all: THE NEW AGENDA is on the forefront of all that is good for women–ALL women, not just their “friends.”

    Brava, once again, Uppity!

  43. Hubby & I are dying reading these Amazon reviews. I’m trying to think of a good one myself. Here’s a great quip from one of the reviewers:

    “ProFlowers on Mother’s Day: When you really want to say “I hate you, mom.”

    They go on and on! Great job people!

  44. Totally off topic.

    I have rather pretentious relatives who live in Portland. I love them to pieces but they do fit that other kind of “uppity” bill. I was always the environmentalist, hiking, nature lover, save the whales and trees, eat whole foods, ranting democrat in the family. So they thought I’d fall in love with Portland when they moved there. I didn’t. It is a nice town, but there is no sign of my kind of people – working class blue collar.

    This article today, from of all places, the Weekly Standard, sums it up. I won’t send the link to my Portland family. They’d be crushed! But some of you might enjoy a good read with a cup of tea on a Sunday:

  45. I’m saving so much money now that I don’t have to pay for my own contraceptives that I decided to buy some flowers to celebrate. Once I got them I realized they would look AWESOME in the background of the sex tape I’m making for Rush!

  46. It’s ALWAYS the wrong time for women to put their collective foot down, isn’t it? Well I’m not buying. From now on, it’s always the right time. I don’t give a SHIT what else is going on around me. We got in this condition by ‘waiting for the right time” while we are being ravaged day and night.

    HEAR HEAR!

  47. ROFLLLLL!

  48. If you don’t know how to use Amazon’s review system, here’s the link to the NEWEST comments in descending order so you can weed out the old stuff and get right down to Rush.

    http://www.amazon.com/Dozen-Rainbow-Roses-FREE-Chocolates/product-reviews/B004K68LCO/ref=cm_cr_pr_btm_link_1?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=0&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending

  49. ProFlowers on Mother’s Day: When you really want to say “I hate you, mom. You should’ve kept an aspirin between your knees.”

  50. SMOKING-BARNBURNING POST!

    This needs to be converted into an email “UppityWoman – Deal With It!” newsletter and sent out all over.

    It’s also the perfect “We Told You So” response to that DNC – Barack Obama perpetual campaign of spamming emails, propaganda stump speeches – which can all be summed up as nothing more than:

    I Suck, the Party Sucks, We Break Promises Because It Isn’t About You – You Don’t Matter – So, STFU! and Just Write Your Obligatory $Check$ or Be a Racist – You Indentured, Stupid, Unemployed Servants, Female Hockey Pucks, GLBT Anomalies with disposable incomes and Useless Old People, sucking off their own bought and paid for Social Security Tit!

    When they get that there is not one gnats-hair’s difference in Obama and his “Sweetie,” “Your likable enough,” “Periodically gets down” and “Brush-Hillary off his shoulder” routine than Limbaugh and his “Slut” – maybe, just maybe – they can be considered 3rd Wave.

    Until then, PUMA was the 3rd Wave – because WE never did and We never will get on a Faux-Feminist, Faux-Leader’s Bus.

    We knew that if it can run over a Hillary Clinton and Voters – backing over the rest was just a matter of time! DUH!

    Maybe I’m wrong. But, I can see November and Four More Years of Obama as Usual – of broken promises because there’s “more important issues… “Sweeties.”

  51. dametruth – we were there with Amy 4 years ago. The new agenda is linked in the sidebar if you didn’t notice.

  52. When you want to tell your wife, mother, daughter or girlfriend how you REALLY feel, send her flowers from proflowers.com! If the woman in your life is using birth control (and you’re a Republican), let her know what you think of the fact that she might potentially enjoy non-procreative sex! If you think she should film herself having sex while using the birth control you pay for by–insert nonsensical made-up process here–and send the videos to you, then a gift from proflowers is a great way to send the message that, to you, she’s just a piece of meat put here on earth to bear your children!

  53. AMEN!! Preach it UW!!

    Women have destroyed themselves by believing in men who manipulate them.

    Wonderful post btw, but I would expect nothing less.

  54. Here’s another:

    “If my husband ever bought me flowers from proflowers, I would throw the flowers and my husband out the door. Proflowers can make all it’s money selling it’s flowers to Rush. Not a cent from me. Sending out a blast email to all of my family to educate them lest they be unaware of Proflowers support of gasbag Rush”

  55. On Amazon all the Proflower items are losing their ratings. Many are now listed with one or two stars with hundreds of ratings against them. There are a few older 4 star reviews left on the site but they’ve been komenized brutally.

    Go you sluts!

  56. LOL somebody I meant “men” not “me” so I fixed it.

  57. Hey dametruth, thank you! What a compliment coming from you who bled for the cause.

  58. Another goodie from Amazon:

    “This year my mom will get a nice present. Flowers from a company that has a rational attitude toward mothers and daughters. Thanks mom, for not having 12 kids and bringing me up in poverty. Thanks for not risking your life and having a reasonable number of kids. I’m glad you, dad and your doctor made these decisions so that you could have a long healthy life and know all of your grandchildren. I love you mom. And I hate you Rush Limbaugh and your supporters.”

  59. The Komenization will be tweeted. #komenize

  60. A lot of these Amazon reviews are from men. Way to go Dudes!

    “Roses are red, Proflowers are blue…, March 4, 2012

    …your steadfast support of Rush Limpbaugh makes me say #$&@ you!! Never again will I buy from this company. I’ll stick with my local florist, especially in the winter months, when I know the flowers I send won’t be as frozen as Rush’s cold, black heart..”.

  61. off topic. As if we didn’t see this coming.

    MOSCOW (AP) – Prime Minister Vladimir Putin rolled to victory in Russia’s presidential election on Sunday, according to exit polls cited by state television, but the vote was tainted by claims of violations, including “carousel voting” in which voters were bused around to cast several ballots.

    Wonder who Romney will chose as his SoS?

  62. btw- regarding the quote from Moscow above:

    It pisses me off that Obama “carousel” Obama did that in this country and our Pravda pretended they didn’t notice.

  63. I hope Rushwhore and his Advertisers are married for the rest of their lives – in Holy-Litigation. Boo-%&%&!^-Hoo!

    I said a long time ago that Women have a lot of Power as 51% – of this country’s largest consumers.

    Hit them ALL in the crotch of their bottom line. and they’ll squeal like the pigs they are.

    Next?

  64. And where was the bloody third wave when Hillary was getting pooped on by both the left and right. nobody got their knickers in a twist then, did they?

    Great post, UW.

    Why Not, to be honest, I’ve had enough of my posts going viral with credit to the blog removed as quickly as possible, and the post bastardized by some freaky right winger or left winger. I have had enough. I should put copyrights on this right now. My shit has gone around the g’damned world, bastardized, and with others claiming authorship besides.

  67. Anything having to do with S-E-X makes some people foam at the mouth like Pavlov’s dogs.

  68. I have never understood why you don’t Copyright everything that you write – or why you wouldn’t want it to go viral – given your eye-opening talents. It doesn’t take but a few reads to recognize your style and formidable “third eye” on so many, many issues.

    Those of us that wouldn’t dare plagiarizer you, or fail to give credit, would want the world to know what we know – you have it all when it comes to being WELL WORTH THE READ.

    The more that READ you, the less probability of the ability to plagiarize your works.

    2 cents.

  69. Because it has created many problems in the past, Why Not and because it took me weeks to clean the mess.

  70. Why Not, I don’t mind someone sending the link to the post out to anyone. What I mind is when the text gets copped and then moves along, till it’s not only no longer mine, but is an illiterate piece of plagiarized shit. It is downright aggravating and exhausting.

  71. Send the link and remind them of the copyright at the top and tell them I mean it.

  73. Besides, I have no time left for writing a newsletter unless I stop sleeping and dump everyone in my life.

  74. State Senator Nina Turner (D-Cleveland) announced legislation today that would protect men in Ohio from the risks of PDE-5 inhibitors, drugs commonly used to treat symptoms of impotence. Turner’s legislation would include provisions to document that the symptoms are not psychological in nature, and would guide men to make the right decision for their bodies. Physicians would be required to obtain a second opinion from a psychological professional to verify that a patient has a true medical malady before the medication could be prescribed.

    “The men in our lives, including members of the General Assembly, generously devote time to fundamental female reproductive issues–the least we can do is return the favor,” Senator Turner said. “It is crucial that we take the appropriate steps to shelter vulnerable men from the potential side effects of these drugs.”

    The legislation follows the FDA’s recommendation that the evaluation of erectile dysfunction should include a determination of potential underlying causes and the identification of appropriate treatment following a complete medical assessment. Similar bills to more closely regulate reproductive health issues have been introduced in the state legislatures of Virginia, Oklahoma, Idaho, and most recently Pennsylvania.

    “When a man makes a crucial decision about his health and his body, he should be fully aware of the alternative options and the lifetime repercussions of that decision,” Senator Turner said today. Men will be more easily guided through the process of obtaining treatment for impotence so they can better understand and more effectively address their condition.

    PDE-5 inhibitors can carry serious side effects such as priapism, hearing loss, and vision loss, and can be detrimental to men with heart problems, including heart pain, abnormal heart rhythms, high or low blood pressure, or a history of stroke.

    “By implementing more intensive screenings before prescribing the medication and requiring outpatient educational services, we can do more to prevent the potential side effects linked to PDE-5 inhibitors,” Senator Turner explained. “We must advocate for the traditional family, protect the sanctity of procreation, and ensure that all men using PDE-5 inhibitors are healthy, stable, and educated about their options–including celibacy as a viable life choice. This legislation will do just that.”

  75. Oh, more to it than I apparently understand.

    Yep. “Foam at the mouth” has often been used as metaphor for “hysteria” in women – as well as premature ejaculation in men.

  76. MyIq! ROFLMAO! Hit em right back every time some crackpot gets on the control women through their doctors bandwagon!

  77. I am on my feet CHEERING!!!!!

    Most Awesome Rant EVER. Thank you, Uppity.

  78. OMG ROFL. These women are just cracking me up!

  79. Why Not, sister, just FYI, everything I write here IS copyrighted. It just doesn’t make a difference to these bastards. I can see accidentally taking something, like photos and graphics we all grab off of google images. Sometimes, someone will let us know it’s theres and we remove it if requested. It’s hard to tell what’s fair use and what isn’t. But when you take an entire editorial, you KNOW what you are doing.

  80. lol my tweet about rush’s four marriages and the three options is being broadcasted everywhere. lolol.

  81. Waving to Irland!

  82. myiq, when the women in this country are done with them, they will be more afraid of women. And that is exactly where they deserve to be.

  83. Just heard, ProFlowers dumped him. Sayonara, swine.

    I guess those rants on Amazon sent them over the edge.

  84. myiq – ROFLLLL! Love those two links you just posted.

  85. Whooohooo!!!!

    Thanks for the news Iriandese!

    V for victory!

  86. Now if only the radio and tv will dump him!

  87. BAHAHAHA proflowers. I still say don’t use em.

  88. hahaha not sure it’s not too late for them.

  89. From their Facebook page:

    PROFLOWERS STATEMENT
    At ProFlowers, our mission is to delight our customers with fresh and long lasting flowers, and that is our singular focus each and every day. We do not base our advertising decisions to align with any particular political view or opinion as our employees and customers are as diverse as the USA. Mr. Limbaugh’s recent comments went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company. As such, ProFlowers has suspended advertising on The Rush Limbaugh radio program.

    Hmmm….”suspended”….not quite sure that’s good enough, but it’s a step in the right direction.

  90. from myiq’s George Will link:

    “While Rick Santorum said Limbaugh’s comments were “absurd,” he said the radio host was an “entertainer” and “an entertainer can be absurd.””

    Yeah, wonder if he would still think Lush was being “absurd” if he said that about one of his own daughters.

  91. great rant Upps. :)

  92. foxy! you just followed me!

  93. From myiq’s paste of the Ohio article:

    Physicians would be required to obtain a second opinion from a psychological professional to verify that a patient has a true medical malady before the medication could be prescribed.

    Yes, and all of these extra testings should not be covered by insurance, but should have to be paid for by the individual men!!!

    After all, if it’s not right for men to have to pay into insurance policies that cover women’s issues, women shouldn’t have to pay into insurance policies which cover men’s issues!

  94. ProFlowers! YOU have been Komenized! (copyright Uppitywoman)

  95. I LOVE this legislation! Wish I had the energy to write about it, but this post fried my brain.

  96. Foxy, on twitter. Did I see a follow notice? Where the h are you?

  97. Coming home from one of the Central Am countries that specializes in child prostitution with a suitcase full of viagra

    Oh, socal, c’mon, we all know he was merely bringing it all back for other men so that they could all say they that men don’t use their insurance for anything related to their sex lives! ROFL

  98. B of A has already started charging new fees for checking account customers (one of them is you have to direct deposit over $250/month or get a monthly fee). On the news it just said that now they’re considering MORE new fees – such as you have to use other of their services, or your monthly checking account fee will be even more.

    They said a million people switched to credits unions last month alone.

  99. Ok, what I see now is an overreach. Drunk on The Win, #stoprush has begun. I can’t particpate in that. The jerk has a right to be on the air. He doesn’t have the right to abuse women with his power. Overreach = mistake. he’s no bigger an asshole than Keith, who also got his. But i refuse to interfere with his right to Be There. Tastefully. WHich probably isn’t possible, but hey.

  100. Looks like google finally killed scroogle.

  101. Nobody has to use BOA. There are far too many other banks and credit unions to put up with their horse shit. They haven’t learned their lesson yet. Consumers don’t like them and will dump them at the drop of a hat. Last time they tried the fee thing they had to back out because they lost so many customers. Let em sink. Dump Bank of America. They are not necessary to every day people and therefor they are NOT too big to fail. Let their stockholders eat shit and die.

  102. I have a low rate charge card with them and I don’t use it just for spite. Only reason I don’t cancel it is canceling cards affects your FICO score. So I let it sit and I let them do the paperwork for no profit whatsoever.

  103. That banking reform law that the Democrats put thru really did wonders. Not.

  104. UW, they did back out of the ATM $5 fee, but not the other fees they’ve added, and now they want to add more. They’re crazy.

  105. How do you follow UW on twitter?

  106. Pravo Uppity! I love how you can put thoughts of many of us on a post. You really are talented. And Karen, as I read one of your posts the word “fury” stuck out. That completely describes how I felt and still feel about how Hillary Clinton was treated, particularly by Democrats. The words “anger”, “mad”, “pissed” do not adequately describe it, but “fury” surely does!

  107. What WLM said!

  108. socal- to follow Upps you make a twitter account- then the easy way is to come back here- follow MKBill and find Uppity that way

  109. whoops, meant “Bravo”. I just can’t seem to think or type on my I Pad. Anyway you got the message!

  110. Thank you WLM. xo

  111. I just saw a tweet over at one of the rush hashtags and the tweeter uses a kos link and says “No one should profit from sexism”. No irony there is there?

  112. Awww, the tornado baby died.

  113. Perhaps Rush should clasp an aspirin firmly between his teeth for the next few years.

    —Commenter on MoDo’s piece on Rush at NYT

  114. So much sadness in this world. The super storms caused so much heartache, long term grief and devastation in such a short burst of time.

    Prayers for them all. And their pets, of course, too.

  115. Brava to Uppity Woman!!!!

  116. From another blog I also saw that Maureen Dowd did a column on Rush that’s pretty good.

  119. 60 Minutes is doing a segment on the RC church in Ireland and the priestly pedophilia. Nice timing while the beanie boys are trying to preach morality to us.

  120. A friend told me today that in church this morning, the priest read a letter to the congregation from the bishop or archbishop, I can’t remember which, which he was instructed to read. It was riddled with talk of obama, birth control, laws and politics and how the church is in danger if……blah blah blah. Now it’s my guess that these letters are happening everywhere. Of course, I can’t get my hands on the letter because it was ‘read’ to the audiance by the priest. The Catholic Church needs to be taxed if they are going to lobby like a corporation and preach politics from the pulpit.

    I’m sure they passed the basket though. lol.

  121. The Catholic Church needs to be taxed if they are going to lobby like a corporation and preach politics from the pulpit.

    Testify, sister!

    Although, you’ll find lots more examples in history from the right challenging the tax status of liberal churches for their social justice work. Mainline Protestant churches are nearly dead in America thanks to a long and deliberate effort by the right.

  122. Upps- Archdiocese of NY? Would that be a letter from the newly installed Cardinal Dolan? Red beanies- I swear the things cause brain damage.
    If you have any friends who are parish secretaries I bet you can get your hands on it lol.

  123. Uppity- check your ferret mail

  124. PMM: You’re out late! How are you feeling?

  125. When MoDo starts making sense we have truly entered the looking glass.

  126. Preach it! Love you!

  127. Love you right back, Still.

  128. I see Obama handed the Isreal people a plate of shit. I hope they aren’t as stupid enough to eat it like they did in 2008.

  129. I never got over MoDo. I despise her and never click on her links, I confess. She’s a snake in the grass.

  130. This particular MoDo article by had a distinctly different tone than she normally takes. It was a really good piece. Something must have crossed a line for her as well.

  131. Feel the same way about Modo, Upps. The article that put me over the edge was the one that called Hillary Dorothy and telling her to surrender. She lost me for good with that one. MSNBO, Huffpo etc all became anathema.

  132. Sophie! Feeling better- though I confess I almost fainted at the end of the opening hymn this morning. That would not have been good- at all. Lent- I am allergic to all that 1500’s music I swear! lol
    Made it all the way through without keeling over. lol

  133. Maybe MoDo’s finally realized her water-carrying days are over. Your spine does tend to get painful when it’s been bent over backwards for so long.

  134. Oh gross–Donna Brazile on The Good Wife.

  135. This particular MoDo article by had a distinctly different tone than she normally takes. It was a really good piece. Something must have crossed a line for her as well.

    Correct. And the only reason I pasted the link here was because it was recommended by someone on another blog. I read it first.

  136. I forget where I heard this joke:

    What’s the difference between Rush Limpbough and the Hindenburg?

    One of them is a huge, flaming, Nazi gasbag–and the other one was a blimp. :twisted:

  137. Hahahah Monster.

  138. I’m sure it is a good piece, I just cringe, I cant forget what an asshole she was and I hold all of these people who helped make this travesty happen accountable in my little brain.

  139. Really Mom, I do wish you wouldn’t push yourself. If you still don’t feel well I am sure God will understand.

  140. You’be blown me away, Uppity. Thank you, thank you for your passion, perspective, and perfect post!

  141. Besides that, I always though she was a mediocre writer and wonder how she got where she is. I read that book she wrote about men not being necessary and it was VERY poor work.

  142. myiq posted in comments at his place:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/03/02/women-iq-breasts_n_1316313.html?1330708424&ncid=edlinkusaolp00000008

    No wonder little 11 year old girls are posting “am I pretty” videos and then suffering the nasty comments. The 3rd wave and younger have really reduced goals for themselves; they’re going back to being male-identified (wanting to be what men want). What a regression….

  143. Oh I know lorac. I can’t stand to watch those Haul and Am I pretty kids on youtube. I want to smack them. I saw them preening, knowing damned well they are pretty and pretending they don’t know. They get bashed left and right by adults who just want to slap their faces for putting themselves out there like hookers. And then there are kids who really aren’t very pretty and you can see their pain, and of course they get bashed too. It’s just horrendous. Their parents should cut them off from the net, I swear.

  144. What happened here? When did parents stop monitoring what their kids do!

  145. Dances! So good to see you! And thank you! Do with it what you will!

  146. Looks like Murphy’s place is down again. Everybody move over a little bit so we can give shelter to her readers till it’s up again.

  147. Yes, those kid youtubes are really disturbing. Laker like to look at youtube to watch music–his fav rock stars in concert, but we don’t have an account or comment, and he isn’t interested in that other stuff thank goodness.

    One of my nieces got in trouble, actually got suspended from school for 2 days, for making a youtube featuring her and some of her friends singing a song they had made up about a boy bully in their school. The kid tortured/mocked all the girls, so they did that to pay him back and they got suspended for it. I’m so glad I didn’t have to deal with all that High School crap.

  148. If I had a school age child today, I would give up eating if I had to, to put him/her in a private school.

  149. Well, laker was in public school for 1st grade and the first 3 weeks of 2nd, then we pulled him out and enrolled him in a good private school and joined the local homeschool groups (the secular ones). He graduates in June and is around 3.6. (Actually, he is done with his work now, but I still make him do a little.) Anyway, its been great for him, constant things to do, lots of friends, great field trips and dances, parties. He’s in A Winters Tale this month, and loves his band, and is working on songwriting now. We’ve had to make sacrifices, money wise, but its been worth it.

  150. The private school he’s in has a homeschool option, I forgot to say. His school work is done through them, and all the social stuff, field trips, and other classes through the homeschool groups. We will have completed 10 years this June, and its been great.

  151. Are you slave driving my Laker Dude??? He’s probably already smarter than you. Heh.

  152. Uppity, I do know that your works ARE copyrighted – it’s hard to imagine people would lift an entire editorial and not credit or link back to you or its origin.

    You have always been willing to allow sharing of your posts, as I recall, with a simple credit to you, its origin and copyright notice.

    It’s exhilarating when you hit one out of the ballpark. Just wanting as many spectators as possible to experience the thrill of being educated on how the game is Really played.

    You are spot-on so often and so way ahead of the field, it takes awhile to trust that you know exactly what you are talking about. Once that happens – from then on, when Uppity talks, people really listen.

    That’s why the “newsletter” suggestion. Purely selfish on my part – a change has gotta come, NOW, not one more day of waiting for “later.”

  153. ……….So the doctor begins his OB/GYN and quickly steps back and says,

    I see the problem. You have Republicans in your vagina.

  154. Komenize – brilliant and, again, it doesn’t get any better than this Post – except in the re-read. lol.

  155. Why Not, thank you for making me feel good about bleeding all over my laptop. lolol. I appreciate it. And yes, you can alway share my work, I just ask that you remind your recipients who it belongs too.

    Copyrights mean nothing to gen y, Why not. Nearly 70% of them admit to stealing and cheating before they even get to high school. And the college kids? well……….

    http://uppitywoman08.wordpress.com/2009/12/30/substandard-american-students-just-go-ahead-and-cheat-their-way-through-college/

  156. Why Not, agree 100% Would read Uppity over MoDo anyday.

    Upps LOL!

  157. from then on, when Uppity talks, people really listen

    Stop blowing my identity. Now everybody will know I’m EF Hutton.

  158. rothfl!

    …and Democrats who now define “progressive” as letting the Republicans go first.

  159. Another “so way ahead of the field” – I rest my case.

  160. To be honest I know when a post is out of the park. It’s just that when I do write one like that, it’s like some kind of out of body experience that drains everything out of me for days. Does that make sense?

  161. Damn! How did I miss that post on American Students?

    They are accustomed to receiving a trophy just for showing up.

    And being able to chant “Yes We Can!”

  162. This year is like gradual-onset madness. It just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

    I can’t believe we’ve spent the past few days seeing people using words like “slut” and “promiscuous.”

    What decade is this?

  163. It absolutely makes sense. You “labor” with posts like these – I’d be willing to bet – for months. There are so many underlying issues involved here. This isn’t about “Limbaugh.” He’s just a symptom of everything that’s wrong – and you know that.

    You see it from all angles, Uppity. Distilling it all into a single-issue post that lets no one escape the big picture must be maddening.

    I’m not saying it quite right. but I think I understand, not being in your shoes – brain.

  164. Does that make sense?

    Yup. Been there, done that. Except for the feeling drained part.

    When my muse is in her manic phase I can write posts all day long and the words just flow off my fingertips. Other times (like the past few weeks) I sit and stare at the monitor and can’t find anything I feel like talking about.

    I’ve had some posts I thought were out of the park that didn’t seem to get any reaction, and I’ve done posts I just threw together that got hundreds of comments.

    C’est le blog

  165. No honestly, when I get moved about a post I want to do, it’s not labor. It’s more like a trance or something. The words just fly. Very few changes. The sequence is there, and it just rolls. But then I feel burned out. Hard to explain. Same flow when I do a satire, except I don’t feel drained but I know it’s On Target because I laugh while I’m doing it. It’s all just really wierd but nothing new for me when it comes to writing.

  166. myiq, i know exactly what you mean about being on a roll and then not being able to write a thing after that. I stopped worrying about it though. I see that my readers don’t complain and seem to Know.

  167. Really myiq, you gotta admit, when you establish your regulars, you could post a photo of a dog turd and they will just give you the grace and toot along, just glad to be on your blog.

  168. This year is like gradual-onset madness. It just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

    Sums it up perfectly, myiq. It’s surreal, for me, actually. I remember 20 years ago (in EEO) when companies were afraid of getting royally sued and losing, if someone in their employ was even sexually suggestive, much less called another a blatantly harassing or even mildly sexist, derogatory name.

    How the hell do you get this all back into Pandora’s box?

  169. This isn’t about “Limbaugh.” He’s just a symptom of everything that’s wrong

    Exactly!

  170. Damn! How did I miss that post on American Students?

    Was done in 2009.

  171. myiq, you know it’s a high when they recognize that you just did something spectacular and they know it can’t happen every day but they wait for the next one, while you wonder if there will ever BE a next one.

  172. I think my point was, Uppity, that you have not only been “seeing” an escalation for months now, you have been “predicting” with warnings of things to come.

    I think you are always in tune to what “needs” to be written and have thought about it (internalized it) long before it comes out on the page.

    It’s already “written” – except for space and time.

  173. myiq @ 1:26am
    “This year is like gradual-onset madness. It just keeps getting weirder and weirder.
    I can’t believe we’ve spent the past few days seeing people using words like “slut” and “promiscuous.”
    What decade is this?”

    Yes, I’ve felt this way all week.

    btw, I have loathed lush r. since the 90’s when he was always after bubba. My mom & I made up lush rumball back then. It makes me ill to think of that vile toad earning what, 40 mil a year? putting out his hideous agenda.

  174. okay I get it Why Not. Yes, that’s true. It’s accumulating so to speak. If you anticipate what others are going to do and hear what they are not saying yet, you kind of can predict their pattern and it’s “written” but not typed in.

  175. Upps, you are not gonna lose it. Never happen.

  176. while you wonder if there will ever BE a next one

    That’s when I announce I’m taking a break.

    One day I’ll take a break and never come back.

  177. “Was done in 2009.” Yes, I saw the date. Chest thumping was still going on with them to a great extent and the future was still theirs to own – steal.

    I rest my case.

  178. To be honest I know when a post is out of the park. It’s just that when I do write one like that, it’s like some kind of out of body experience that drains everything out of me for days

    Here’s what I said over at TW:

    If you have a chance go over to Uppity’s place and read this:

    http://uppitywoman08.wordpress.com/2012/03/04/rush-sincerely-wants-his-sponsors-back-komenizing-and-hope-for-the-3rd-wave/

    I’m surprised she didn’t collapse on the keyboard after getting done. Superb post.

  179. I think that Pandora’s box was opened long ago, else we wouldn’t have all these awful people making awful laws in between having fun nobody else can afford.

  180. LOL Fredster. That’s sweet of you.

  181. The first time I ever heard RL when he “suddenly” hit the scene, years ago, I swear I uttered the words: “What a useless, sh*t-stirring, sexist pig.”

  182. I agree about feeling like we traveled backwards in a time machine or something. I wouldn’t be surprised if somebody shows up wearing a puritan costume with that big shiny buckle. It’s surreal.

  183. I’m fading, so I will say goodnight. And thank you.

  184. Can you honestly tell me that it was the kind of “Open Season” on women that we are seeing now prior to Barack Obama & The DNC vs Hillary Clinton?

    Think about it. Not in 25 years has this kind of vitriolic attack and all out war on women’s reproductive rights been so largely ignored and accepted as “fair game.”

  185. LOL Fredster. That’s sweet of you.

    You more than deserved it with this one.

  186. That’s the “Pandora’s Box” I am referring to and I largely blame it on Barack Obama and the Democratic Party, quite frankly.

    They not only opened that box, they used it st the expense of all women – at every turn imaginable – to “beat” Hillary Clinton.

    Now “they” want to rescue us from the “Evil Republicans” that “they” served us up to on a silver platter? It’s laughable, if not for being so tragic.

  187. Goodnight.

  188. They not only opened that box, they used it st the expense of all women – at every turn imaginable – to “beat” Hillary Clinton.

    The Obamacrats moved to the right so the GOP moved even farther to the right. Now the so-called center” is farther right than it was just four years ago.

  189. It’s good to know that AOL has a How To Ripen Bananas story front and center. This is critical stuff in these hard economic times, don’t you think?

  190. Uppity, I think your much-lauded (and deservedly so) post caused my mouse to go into seizure. Mid afternoon yesterday as I was salivating over the comments here, the cursor became stuck in an inappropriate position. Changed batteries, stood on my head and all the other tricks I know to get a wireless connection going again, but to no avail. Resorted to using keyboard for navigation and got someplace on your blog that I’ve never been before. lol. Eventually shut everything down for the day with plans to get myself to Staples in the morning for another mouse. Woke up today, fiddled a bit more and the damned thing sprang to life. All is well!

  191. Mousey needs cleaning, sister.

  192. So you deny any culpability? (not certain it comes apart.)

  193. what kind of mouse is it.

  194. Hey I’ve been blamed for worse stuff!

  195. If it’s wireless, wipe off the sensors.

  196. Sorry I was at your hallp site. Acer. Wireless. Is sensor glass bulb on bottom? How do you know so much?

  197. rhetorical question above.

  198. I’ve had some posts I thought were out of the park that didn’t seem to get any reaction, and I’ve done posts I just threw together that got hundreds of comments.

    A strange but observable phenomenon.

  199. UW You’ve got email.

  200. Wonderful post UW. I hear Bill Maher is referring to Rick Sanatarium as “Christy McSweater Son was rolling around on the floor about that one.

  201. The rumble countdown is here. 446 delegates in 11 states. I’ve been reading the predictions and it is either being purposefully obscured or it is really a “contest” too close to call.

    The Industrial states, the bible belt, the obama payback voters who won’t get fooled again, the OFA “russian carousel” of bussed in voters who are playing Rush’s operation Chaos again, dead people and pets casting ballots. Diebold machines set to spew out more votes than there are voters in certain counties….

  202. Putin is President again (3rd term), despite ballot violations. Doesn’t matter if ya cheat, all it matters is grabbing power. :(

  203. Putin was and is KGB. None of this should be a surprise.

  204. That is funny AnnE, but I really think Bill Maher should be next. But he won’t be. Women just won’t let go of being rairoaded by men and having their causes appropriated and trivialized. I can see it right now with Rush. They’ve completely forgotten the issue and just want an opposing voice off the air. but we will still have to listen to filth and piggery from Mathews, Maher, etc etc. If we want to reverse this trend there can be NO FREE PASSES to pigs. I don’t want rush off the air. I want him ON the air, walking with two f’ing feet in one shoe next time he deals with women.

  205. You can see the sensors via how the beam ejects. Use a clean cotton cloth and wipe anything that looks like it receives or sends a signal. Like a remote, and yes, I would imagine there is a point of receive at the bottom. I can’t see the mouse. Just clean all those areas that logically affect the action of the mouse to the computer.

  206. Back when I still read the New York Times, they did a very long profile on Chris Matthews for their Sunday mag. It went on and on explaining his life, his views and who he is. In the on-line comments section I wrote the following:

    I could have summed him up in four words: He Is A Pig.

  207. many thanks, uppity.

  208. Foxy, on twitter. Did I see a follow notice? Where the h are you?
    Here I am.I don’t do Twitter.unless I accidentally hit something I,m not supposed to. :lol:

  209. Ok foxy. I must have had an hallucination.

  210. Karen landed in spam. nyah nyah.

    You are right. Matthews is a huge disgusting scheevy pig.

  211. I still think Maher is the poster boy though. Calling women twats, talking about hairy balls in their mouths. Tit talk. He’s just a disgusting freak in a boy’s body. Sometimes I wonder if he hates women so much because he wants to be one.

  212. “Karen landed in spam. nyah nyah.”

    ack, ugh. I don’t eat spam – somebody please toss me a jelly donut!

  213. I don’t want rush off the air. I want him ON the air, walking with two f’ing feet in one shoe next time he deals with women.

    Exactly! Well-put.

  214. Karen who you kidding. You want to eat the spam with the jelly donut.

  215. maher a disgusting freak

    does he ever look in a mirror?

  216. That Daily Beast article by Kirsten Powers is great. I sent it to some obots I know just now…

    Are cats allowed ice cream? I know it is very bad for dogs, at least when I was young they said it was. These kittehs are awfully cute tho.

    http://www.buzzfeed.com/animals/cats-eating-ice-cream

  217. Yeah I let my cats lick the bowl. But NO chocolate or raisins

  218. I know Pam.He’s really vile.

  219. Uppityites! Don’t forget our 4th anniversary bash tomorrow. No need to BYOB. NES is rich and is buying.

  220. The thing with cats and dairy is, most cats are actually lactose intolerant so too much of that stuff can give them the runs. Cats are like kids. They love something that’s not good for them so we have to tell them no.

  221. The Obamacrats moved to the right so the GOP moved even farther to the right. Now the so-called center” is farther right than it was just four years ago.

    I forget that part, myiq2xu, mainly because I was never as deeply involved in the political tenets of the far-left or far-right. I’m sure you see that part of it much more clearly than I could.

    The question is “Why?” What’s the end-game? Or, is it all so party political positioning vote-getting that it simply doesn’t matter who they run over going after the loudest demographic?

    Looks that way, on the surface, maybe. But, I think not.

    Year by year we are learning the hard way that we are being relatively, even collectively, dis-empowered – no matter who we THINK we elect to best represent and work for balance in “the public’s good” in “governance” of us as a society. The debt, alone, indicates a failed government but “we the people” is now nothing more than the scapegoat puppets, it seems to me.

  222. America this very moment is a country where the victims are the scapegoats.

  223. apps for kittehs. (have to appease MK Bill or I will keep going to spam.)

  224. Rick Sanatarium is going to be in Oklahoma tomorrow for the results. Since he is living in a time warp I can hear the songs from that musical from my childhood today.

    Oaaaaaaak lahoma where the wind comes sweeping down the plain.

    Newton they say, has to win Georgia.

    Sanatarium might win freaking OHIO. That would suck.

  225. NES – thanks for paying the bar tab tomorrow for our anniversary super tuesday party.

    We are likely going to need lots of alcohol when the results come in.

    I might need to take the day off work and pull up a stool under the tap.

  226. My mind is boggling. Seriously…boggling. I used to enjoy sites like NoQuarter, but even they are on the “Fluke MIGHT (but hooboy does she like her sex) not be a slut but she’s a leftist plant” diatribe. I guess i should have smelled the coffee when Mr. Johnson called Santorum a “gentle soul” and I shot back and called Santorum a douchebag for using his Trisomy 18 daughter as a political prop among other things. Santorum thinks a woman like me will burn in hell, but hey, he’s a gentle soul, WTF?? I was called harsh by Larry himself and told I had a questionable character by other posters. I hear those Salem witch trials were really good at building character for women. We should bring those back, get them covered under insurance plans a therapy. The RC would surely approve that.

    Fluke was talking about equal representation for men and women under insurance policies. If an insurance policy can accommodate viagra then it can damn well accommodate an estrogen/progesterone therapy.

  227. Sorry Bill’s Mom for my rant. I’m just a tad annoyed and awfully tempted to use those pitchforks that they hand out at the “New Damned Soul Orientation” in hell on some individuals.

  228. In short, don’t you deliberately steal my writing again and send it out viral, “anonymous” and bastardized)

    When did this happen?

  229. Gleep, there were lots of sites I went to, and some still have admirable parts to them, but for one reason or another I rarely post any place but here anymore. NQ is very different and always has been when it comes to the comments section especially. The obots having free reign there was good sport. I will cherish the memories of Strawberry bites Barky and the Rev. Goddamn Wright type posters (uppity was a cut up and still is and that’s one of the reasons we adore her) and the other snark filled insanity that permeated the place in the hey day.

    The authors are excellent, often too. But that ganging up thing by some of the Republican Posse over there was too much for me. And extreme bile too, not aimed at politicians but at each other.

    sigh.

  230. While in the shower this morning I had an epiphany: ‘Face it girl, when women DEMAND anything, the main obstacle is that, systemically, it’s considered motivational hedonism.’

    We are always either “wanting too much for “purely selfish” pleasure” or are “asking to get the crap “beat” out of us” because we intrinsically know we’re bad when we are unmanageable; we know we need it, therefore we really like the pain.

    Obviously, I was unsuccessful in showering this crap off.

    Anyway, have a good day.

  231. Hi gang. Not around much these days because I have decided to keep myself free of stuff that angers me or that I as a one can do noting about.
    I did send out emails to companies thanking them for pulling ads from Rush but did not send out emails telling them to do so.
    Glad to see women finally standing up again. It is not a conservative thing or a liberal thing only it is a life long abuse of women thing from the male gender. I know many good strong conservative women going after Rush as well.
    All I have to say on this is politics be damned it is a gender bash thing from all sides and the liberals do it just as much as conservatives and it is sickening.
    I sent Rush a nastygram personally. He afterall was the one that did the deed. Do I demand he goes off air ? NO ! that is bullying and going down the same road in a sense. He will self destruct. I will not however call him names or I put myself in his league.
    I clearly reminded him that Ms. Fluke is not a party of one in the sexaul thing and what do we call the men ? I did ask him how it would feel if women got some juicy names for men who have sex out of wedlock and started a man bash and name calling session to all the men in power. I said think of it Rush we could start with Newt and work our way down the line and include you with four failed marriages under your belt too. Think how it would have felt to see Sarah or Hillary up there telling their rivals they were man sluts and needed to keep it in their pants and at home. Or that they ought to go home and mow the yard ?

  232. UW please check email.

  233. It’s good to know that AOL has a How To Ripen Bananas story front and center. This is critical stuff in these hard economic times, don’t you think?

    Yes, it is so difficult dealing with those dastardly bananas. I was so proud of AOL for having the courage to take on such a controversial topic as banana management and displaying their findings so prominently for all to see.

  234. My problem with bananas is that they get overripe too fast. Once again the media is tackling a non-existent problem. ;D

  235. Don’t give the Third Wavers too much credit yet= My son wrote a blurb on Facebook about Rush bring a waste of space for years and ended with “quit giving the idiot attention.” (As if women are swooning over Rush?) And the comment got over 20 likes from young women! Good grief. Why are so many missing the point?

    Junior has a vasectomy, so in Rushspeak, qualifies as a SLUT.

  236. Steve Bridges, a George Bush impersonator, has died. Politico has a really funny clip of Bridges and Bush at the WH Correspondents’ Dinner. While I was not a ‘fan’ of Bush to put it mildly, it stuck me that Obama could never pull off what Bush was able to do effortlessly. He makes fun of himself and honestly seems to be enjoying himself. Obama is a real head case. How did the DNC ever do this to us? They have me saying nice things about W. It is a bit long, but I think worth it. http://www.politico.com/blogs/click/2012/03/george-w-bush-impersonator-dies-at-116385.html

  237. I am not rich. But, I’m buying drinks tomorrow.
    (Hopefully, Santorum and Gingrich will do really poorly tomorrow and get knoocked on their asses, but good. And, then, we can drink a toast to that as well.)

  238. I might need to take the day off work and pull up a stool under the tap.

    karen, stool already set up for you…with a nice silk cushion.
    (Hill Billy’s seat is on the floor, next to the box of fine wine.)

  239. Sanatarium might win freaking OHIO. That would suck.

    I don’t think that’ll happen — surely, OHIO-ans don’t want to be the laughing-stock of the nation.
    C’mon OHIO-ans, don’t do anything styooooopid.

  240. Utah, hiya! Thanks for swooping down with wisdom.
    I’m praying for my favorite Mormon Elder’s success tomorrow.

  241. honora — good point. Among all the other flaws Obama has, perhaps his greatest is that he doesn’t have a sense of humor. That’s fatal in a person.

  242. dullards do not have a sense of humor. It’s a dullard characteristic. MOre often they laugh inappropriately and when they try to be funny, they are a bust and generally make sick jokes about things nobody in their right mind finds funny. Also a characteristic of Aspergers. Example: When he made fun of the disabled olympics.

  243. UTAH! Love ya girl!

  244. ‘Face it girl, when women DEMAND anything, the main obstacle is that, systemically, it’s considered motivational hedonism.’

    It’s just a tool they use to shut you up. DEMAND anyways. And let them know you Know they are just trying to shut you down. And then DEMAND again.

  245. I could have summed him up in four words: He Is A Pig.

    Priceless, karen!

  246. I could have summed him up in four words: He Is A Pig.

    Priceless, karen!

    Priceless indeed! karen gets an extra drink tomorrow for that.

  247. WhyNot, I wish I had epiphanies in the shower.
    Give the woman an extra-strong drink tomorrow!!

  248. karen @ 1:23pm: Cosign!

  249. I’ve had some very interesting shower epiphanies, although most of them can’t be recorded on a G rated blog.

  250. UW: You could make a companion site–an after hours blog, if you will.

    – – – – – – –

    In other news, these people are Effin Nuts, off their rockers, and whatever else you can think of:

    Before you can join the Laurens County Republican Party in South Carolina and get on the primary ballot, they ask that you pledge that you’ve never ever had pre-marital sex — and that you will never ever look at porn again.

  251. Bring photo ids tomorrow. Everyone will be carded — NO EXCEPTIONS!

    Obama pinatas (full of chit) will be provided, along with ten-foot poles.

  252. I’ve had some very interesting shower epiphanies,…

    I saw a YouTube of some of them on Twitter.

  253. Before you can join the Laurens County Republican Party in South Carolina and get on the primary ballot, they ask that you pledge that you’ve never ever had pre-marital sex — and that you will never ever look at porn again.

    The Pope will be the only one on that ballot.

    What made the Repubs. go suddenly crazy like this? Can we blame Obama?

  254. Bring photo ids tomorrow. Everyone will be carded — NO EXCEPTIONS!

    Flattery will get you everywhere. Can’t remember the last time I was carded!

  255. Sophie, that’s wild about the repubs in So Carolina. I’ve never been there but have heard they have some wild party towns there on the coast. These extreme religious conservatives are crazier than the bama bots. In any event, I’d be glad to see both parties kiss off.

  256. Flattery will get you everywhere. Can’t remember the last time I was carded!

    But, leaving the flattery aside, I have no idea what you guys look like. (Well, aside from you…you look like a young, glam version of our girl Hill.)

  257. What drinking games will we play tomorrow?

  258. Burp….new post up.

  259. NES is jumping the gun pahtying and drinking!!

  261. Splendid post, Uppity! Thank you!!

  262. Hi folks. We have a really great opportunity here. Yes Carbonite defunded Rush, but they did not defund the Ed Show when Ed Schultz called a women he didn’t agree with a slut. (H/t Toledo mom for sending this our way.)

    If we are ever going to get rid of misogyny we have to say zero tolerance to it, no matter WHO does the slut slamming.

    CEO Carbonite is very liberal and funds Move On.org and all sorts of liberal causes. (True to LDN, Carbonite has ZERO women on their board of directors and no women in senior leadership positions.)
    This is a great opportunity for women to contact Carbonite and say no one is immune. Call Carbonite and demand that they defund the Ed Show as well or all we have is more of the same: liberal men with a free pass to use sexism.

  263. This is a great opportunity for women to contact Carbonite and say no one is immune. Call Carbonite and demand that they defund the Ed Show as well or all we have is more of the same: liberal men with a free pass to use sexism.

    I strongly endorse that message. And, will put my money where my mouth is.
    Thanks for the message femisex. Hope you’ve tweeted it too.

  264. Funny that carbonite is so left yet sponsors rush. He held out to the last too. We were all tweeting his ass and they weren’t budging. Fact is, who the hell wants to advertise on that crude Ed’s show? I guess Carbonite helps keep him on the air. To me, he’s hard to listen to, hard to look at and generally looks like something they dragged off the street. Face it Femisex, there will be crickets from the same crowd that piled on Rush when it comes to Ed. Fact is, none of them give a shit about women, half of them are the same bastards that called Hillary C*nt in 2008. For them it’s all about getting opposing voice off the air so that instead of listening to sickening Rush, we won’t have anywhere to go but to that filthy pig Chris Matthews’ show. Or go find that other filthy pig Olbermann on that silly little network nobody can find. It took about five minutes for the woman-hating left to appropriate the Rush cause and turn it into theirs. If Bill Maher had called somebody a slut on the same day they wouldn’t have noticed, because they don’t really give a shit about sexism, they ARE sexists and it’s just all about Baby Barack with them.

    If Ed were off the air, I wouldn’t notice, but as I learned from twitter, trying to get women to understand that you never stop sexism and misogony but giving out Free Passes just because someone has a D after their name……….is like trying to push a rope.

    I don’t want Rush off the air and that’s what it’s turned into. I want him ON the air, walking with two scheevy feet in one shoe the next time, thinking twice before he does anymore of his filth. Too bad Beck is already neutralized, because he deserves it too. Worst one of the lot for years ongoing.

  265. hi folks– I am EVER hopeful that like blacks, women will unite in opposition to any political party calling them the equivalent of niggers–be it the s, w, c or b word. I swear, if Carbonite got the message that women hate those who only denounce sexism when it serves their political or gender supremacy purpose, I do believe it would be a large win.
    Carbonite likes Rush because ads on that station make them a lot of $$ by reaching a large audience. Rush is not paid $56 million per year for nutin. He has a large audience that companies drool over.

    Rush is bad for fiscal responisbles because he muddies the waters with hate speech. And I am happy to see him dropped by Carbonite, but only if they also drop kick Ed Schultz. I have tweeted the PR email at Carbonite and hope against hope that women will come together on this. A reader on our site alerted us to the fact that Ed SlutSlammer had the gall to demand advertisers drop Rush and asked if people really thought this would just go away.
    Wow….like it did for him because all the broadcast news did the shuush up thing when he called a woman a sl*t.

    This public ingrained misogyny will only end when there is zero tol to it not the 3rd wave’s selective tolerance to it!

    Wow….like it did for him because all the broadcast news did the shuush up thing when he called a woman a sl*t.

    Proving for sure he has more balls than brains. And just like with the rest of the pigs like him, he couldn’t care less about sexism, he IS sexism. This is all about Baby Barack for them.

  267. “–Reality: If Hillary Clinton were President, odds would have been good that she would have shown up at Issa’s hearing personally–and waited for that swine to dare tell her she’s not qualified.”

    Oh what an image!

    Love you Uppity.

  268. When next we post will remind folks to come on over and wish you a HAPPY B-DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
