McConnell fundraiser: Wives have 'obligation' to sleep with husbands Read more: http://thehill.com/

War on women? What war on women?

It is probably what McConnell will ask himself. Because clearly he has no problems with this,

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/201102-mcconnell-fundraiser-co-host-wives-have-obligation-to-sleep-with-husbands

A conservative talk-radio host who has argued wives “ought to consent to at least some form of sexual relations as much as possible,” regardless of their “mood,” will co-host a Wednesday fundraiser for Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

....


Writing on TownHall.com in December of 2008, Prager compares a man’s obligation to go to work, regardless of his “mood,” to a woman’s obligation to have sex with her husband.
...
He says that, because of that belief, “the decade or more during which women have the best chance to attract men is spent being preoccupied with developing a career.”

...



Nice dinosaur. Probably a perfect pair with the turtle man.

1. Perhaps McConnell does not realize women are a larger portion of the population and we are citizens,

not at the will of men who are a smaller number of the population.

15. I have nothing bad to say about Reverend Wright.

I happen to agree with him and his view about America. In fact I was sort of upset Obama threw him under the bus. I can understand (sort of) why he did it but I disagreed with him doing so. America is certainly not a perfect country no matter how much the GOP would like that to be. In fact I believe they are one of the main obstacles in that regard.

16. I dont have anything bad to say about him either

 

But the Idea that Obama should be held responsible for the words that Reverend wright said is the same thing IMHO. Only in Obamas case I expect he spent way more time with Reverend Wright than no neck spent with this other tool.

In both cases I think its a garbage way to try to tear someone down.

Having said that I am no fan of Mitches so this will be the last time I comment on this.

6. Nowadays, women also have to go to work regardless of their "mood".

So, when she drags her ass home after a ten-hour day, and gets the meal on the table, gets the kids fed, homeworked, bathed, and put to bed, throws a load of clothes in the washer and does the dishes, and THEN she also has to put out for the husband?

Yeah, right.

I learned when I was a teenager that kids were never in the cards for me. That meant I never had a ticking biological clock pressuring me to marry, and I just never did. That means I never had to risk ending up with someone like the Turtle Man. Sometimes you really do catch a break in life.

A man has to do his job no matter his mood. So when the wife has to have sex no matter her mood, doesn't that make her a prostitute?

i remember listening to his crap some years back and at that time he was married to his 2nd wife. he was always saying things about how women need to focus on appearance to keep their husband and other sexist shit.

but i see now he has divorced his wife from then and married someone else.

he looks and sounds like a fucking douchebag also.

That doesn't even make any sense. Fish don't need bicycles so it follows that women don't need men.

Logic doesn't appear to be a strength of Mr. Prager

...women also work for a wage "regardless of mood" too. Add to it the other unpaid work she does that men do not do, which loses her over $400,000 of paid work over a work life time according to labor studieas quoted in Think Progress and the AARP. What a freaking selfish dolt!

Talk about getting a headache and "losing the mood"! GRRR!
