Republican likens contraceptive mandate to Pearl Harbor, 9/11
Unbelievable!!!!!! But this is good for the Democratics....The women will come in droves and their men who do support them to the Democratic party and also those offended by the Pearl Harbor and 9/11 comparison. The Republicans have gone crazy.
Pennsylvania Rep. Mike Kelly (R), an ardent opponent of abortion rights, said that today's date would live in infamy alongside those two other historic occasions. Wednesday marked the day on which a controversial new requirement by the Department of Health and Human Services, which requires health insurance companies to cover contraceptive services for women, goes into effect.
"I know in your mind you can think of times when America was attacked. One is December 7th, that's Pearl Harbor day. The other is September 11th, and that's the day of the terrorist attack," Kelly said at a press conference on Capitol Hill. "I want you to remember August the 1st, 2012, the attack on our religious freedom. That is a day that will live in infamy, along with those other dates."]

1. The martyr runs deep with this crowd...
If you are for gay marriage they cry waaaaaaaaaaaah you are attacking my marriage. If you want women to have access to birth control waaaaaaaaaaaah you are attacking my religion. If you want a safety net for anyone that has hit hard time waaaaaaaaaaaah you are attacking my right to spend my money the way I want to. If you think the Patriot Act has given the government too much power to detain waaaaaaaaaaaaah the terrorists are going to get us. If you don't oppose Mosques being built in your neighborhood waaaaaaaaaaaaah you want Sharia Law. What a freaking bunch of cry babies.
