While a lot of the national media today are still aghast about Rush Limbaugh and what he called a college student who doesn't want to pay for what she says are her contraceptive needs while attending Georgetown University, I choose to still keep my eye on the ball.
By the way, left- winger Ed Schultz on his TV show, and bill Maher, have called women worse names and there is no outcry.
But the problem in our country -- I think -- is not about contraception.
It's about the government being able to tell a certain religion it's my way or the highway.
Plus, the rising cost of fuel.
While all the TV and radio talkers are in a slap fight, I keep filling up my car with fuel which is averaging $4 a gallon.
I guess as a nation we are just weary of crises, because last time when when fuel got this high people became angry.
Workplaces and colleges whittled down schedules to 4 days a week.
This time, nothing.
The president's energy secretary implies at a hearing there is not too much this administration will do about the high cost of gas.
They keep touting green energy that is not ready.
We have more natural gas than we know what to do with, but notice you're not seeing anyone from D.C. getting too excited about that.
The problem we have right now is not contraception.
The problem we have right now is the federal government every day seeping more and more in our lives.
Instead of waking up and seeing the freedoms which are being lost, we choose to follow pop culture and sports.
You know, fun things. Things that aren't hard.
But if this trend continues we'll be told what to do.
And then all these folks right now who are asleep will be the ones most stunned at the how much bureaucrats want to run or will be running our lives.
But, by then it'll be too late.
That's my point of view, whats yours?
