October Dick of the Month: Paul Ryan

I try to keep politics out of the Dick of the Month.  I’ve talked about Rush Limbaugh before, but that was because he’s personally a dick, I don’t care about his dickish politics.  But alas, sometimes you do something so outrightly dickish in the name of politics, that we have to feature you anyway.  Such as Jeremy Faison’s idiotic rant in favor of bullying on the Tennessee state congressional floor.

And that is where our future Vice-President Paul Ryan (please let me be wrong!!) comes into the story.  You see he and his crony Mitt Romney are trying to get elected by, well…by us, actually.

Unfortunately for Paul Ryan he had a habit in his younger days of talking about hero, Ayn Rand.  Now the Ayn Randian philosophy, called Objectivism, is that charity is a bad thing and that the only way to further society is to promote self-interest, selfishness, and unmitigated free enterprise.

In case you want an idea of how that might work, play the game Bioshock, because the hellish underwater dystopia of Rapture is based on the ideology of Ayn Rand’s Objectivism.

I’ve seen on the news an expert on Objectivism talk about how Ayn Rand would not have liked Mitt Romney, because of how much he donates to charity and to the Mormon Church, especially, since the Mormon Church uses that money to fund its own charitable activities.

But Paul Ryan certainly would have made Ayn Rand proud this time.  You see, he was trying to distance himself from his Objectivist roots to make himself look better for the camera to the poor populace who he needs to vote for him and Romney.

Ryan got some pictures taken inside a Soup Kitchen, washing some dishes in a suit and tie…and an apron.  The problem is…this was apparently after the lunch-time meal was served around noon, when the Soup Kitchen wasn’t even open.  The dishes were already clean and he just sprayed water on them.

He also lied to the person in charge and claimed that they had permission to film in there.  They didn’t.  Paul Ryan got his pictures, washing the clean dishes, and left.  The pictures went viral, as was intended, and the owner of the Soup Kitchen was pissed about it.

You see, the St. Vincent De Paul Society Soup Kitchen runs on donations from private institutions such as wealthy donors and organizations.  As the society president states:

“We’re a faith-based organization; we are apolitical because the majority of our funding is from private donations.  It’s strictly in our bylaws not to do it. They showed up there, and they did not have permission.”

First off, we have Ryan’s own comments that would make Ayn Rand very sad, “This is what makes society go. It makes it work.  Helping people.”

Secondly, we have the damage he’s done to the institution that would probably even make Ayn Rand blush.

You see, because of letting the Republican VP nominee into the soup kitchen, the St. Vincent De Paul Society lost a number of their Democrat donors.  Then, for coming out and saying that Paul Ryan used his position and influence to lie his way through the doors and that he wasn’t allowed in there after all, the St. Vincent De Paul Society lost a number of their Republican donors.

So, for cleaning a few spotless pans so hard that you managed to put a Soup Kitchen, feeding the poor and homeless, out of business…you, Congressman Paul Ryan are the October Dick of the Month.

Dick of the Month: Rush Limbaugh

Has anyone heard about Rush Limbaugh’s misogynistic and inflammatory commentary?  No, no, not in general, I mean the particular comments he made at the start of the month about law student Sandra Fluke?  He called Ms. Fluke a slut, because she wants taxpayers to pay her money to have sex.  The problem with that?  That’s not what she wants, at all.

She wants employers to have to supply contraceptive coverage in their insurance programs.  This costs taxpayers nothing and it, really, has nothing to do with sex.  My fiancé has used birth control pills since she was in her early teens, years before she had anything to do with sex.  Why, you ask?  Because the estrogen and progesterin supplements the pills are comprised of helped to decrease the amount bleeding on her periods; instead of a bucket she had a cup.  It also decreased the severity of her menstrual cramps, causing significant pain relief for her.

Ms. Fluke has said that in her area contraceptives can cost over $3,000 a year.  I know my fiancé spends about $240 in birth-control pills alone, each year (thanks to Planned Parenthood’s low-income prices).  If you want to throw condoms into that mix, the cheapest (and therefore crappiest) brand at the local CVS store costs $1.30 a piece.  If you have sex once a week that’ll add on $67.60 a year.

So if you are in a healthy relationship and don’t want children, taking into account Dr. Oz’s advice that you should make love 3 times a week to keep the relationship healthy; that’ll actually add $202.80 a year for condoms.  Now, if you have a lubrication problem you can add on another .25 per achievement of intercourse to that, adding on another $39.

So all in all a low-income woman could have a healthy relationship for about $346.60.  My fiancé made $8,000 a year, last year.  That’s 4% of her income in contraceptions; that’s almost as much as I spend in gasoline a year, just to get to work.  And that’s thanks to Planned Parenthood and it’s providing low or no-cost birth control to low-income women.

Now let’s let the Republicans win the debate and defund Planned Parenthood, let’s get rid of the organization, entirely.  Now it costs $150 a week for birth control pills.  So now the woman who only makes $8,000 a year has to pay $7906.60.  Which leaves her with $93.40 to pay rent, bills, tuition, car insurance and fuel costs to get to work, etc.

So a woman in a long-term relationship, or even one that is not, should have to pay between 3 and 8 thousand dollars a year under the Republican ideology?  Well that’s what Rush Limbaugh is saying.  He’s saying that if you have sex, you are a whore.  So all four of Rush Limbaugh’s wives are whores, because they’ve all had sex with Limbaugh.  As a matter of fact, Rush Limbaugh is a slut, too!

Anyone who has sex is a slut and will cost the taxpayers millions of dollars!  I don’t know why, but Rush says it, so it must be true, right?

Anyone who listens to the drivel spat by this retard deserves to have their right to vote redacted, quite frankly.

You know you’re overly misogynistic when you make a comment about women and Rick Santorum says, ‘Woah, too far buddy, too far.

So, the ability to make Rick Santorum say that women should be treated better?  That earns Rush Limbaugh his first spot (probably won’t be his last, I imagine) spot on Dick of the Month.

TekkoshoCon X and Youtube!

Attention folks, today begins the Tekkoshocon Anime Convention in Pittsburgh, PA.  I will be attending, so my updating may be haphazard.

To make up for it, my fiance and I have finally gotten our Youtube channel up and operating.  Only one video on it so far, but we’ll have more eventually.
