Barbara Boxer argued today that Hobby Lobby’s position against certain types of birth control (the ones that halt the process after conception like Plan B or other IUDs) is anti-woman and her reasoning is that Hobby Lobby has never complained that Viagra is available for men under their insurance coverage:

[flowplayer id=”94322″]

This doesn’t even make sense. Viagra has nothing to do with Hobby Lobby’s objection. This is not about sex or even birth control in general. In fact Hobby Lobby already provides normal birth control coverage under their insurance.

No, just as the host pointed out to Boxer, Hobby Lobby’s objection has to do with life, or rather protecting the creation of life. Viagra aids in the creation of life and thus is not at issue. What is at issue are products that end life, like Plan B. And that’s why this is a religious freedom issue for the company. They don’t believe in abortion.

Barbara Boxer is simply trying find some equivalency in order to twist this case to make it look like Hobby Lobby is anti-woman. And it’s a pretty pathetic attempt at that.

    It’s always nice to hear the Official Clown of the Senate weigh in on another important issue. Good one, Babsie. Can’t wait to hear your views on Putin and the Ukraine.

    • Nukeman60

      And by all means, don’t let the military call her “Ma’am”. No sir, ma’am, er…sir…er…

      • Army_Pilot1967

        She’s so clueless about the military…the general was showing her all kinds of respect, and she chewed him out for not calling her “Senator.” She doesn’t deserve to be called Senator because she doesn’t conduct herself like one!

        • tinlizzieowner

          There is a term for ‘female dog’ that fits her perfectly.

        • Nukeman60

          Yeah, I saw the frustration on his face when he attempted to be polite without actually being able to use the words.

          He was a better man than I. I’m sure I would have said something rude and to the point

    • Sunshine43

      Oh, good grief, spare me, PUHLEEZE!!!!!

    Warning: The National Brain Cell Protection Agency has determined that listening to Barbara Boxer may well be harmful to the health and well-being of your brain cells.

    Should you rewatch this video too many times (in order to attempt to actually understand her reasoning), you may find yourself liking what Nancy Pelosi has to say.

    You have been warned. Now go kill babies with Viagra. But should it last more than 4 hours, please refrain from driving heavy machinery.

    • Kansas Gal

      Did not have to listen to her, already knew what an idiot she is. I like your warning though.

      • Nukeman60

        Yeah, it’s a shame she helps run our country, ’cause she sure does make me laugh most times. The problem is, I can shut the TV off if I don’t want to watch most comedians. This one goes back to hurting my wallet and my lifestyle.

    • warpmine

      Proper ear protection deemed necessary!

      • Sunshine43

        And eye protection!

    • Sunshine43

      Wonderful comment! (However, I don’t have to listen to the video to know she is a doofus!!)

  • ernst1776

    Sorry, not lowering my IQ today by listening to this person.

  • MadMadJack

    I’m sorry but you’re a Ma’am and number two you are a democRat and number three you are a moron from Kommiefornia, so that’s three strikes and you’re out. Babs is right up there with Piglosi in the intelligence department.

    It is highly disturbing and disgusting that the likes of her are running (ruining) this country.

  • James1754

    Perhaps someone should tell Mrs. Boxer that Viagra is not a birth control pill.

    • MadMadJack

      It’ s been so long since that ugly hag got laid she ain’t got a clue.

    • warpmine

      Don’t recall reading that their banning pictures of the Wookie and Hitlery regarding birth control substances so what is she talking about?

      • James1754

        She is repeating a democrat talking point for some camera time.

    • 4liberty

      Hobby Lobby isn’t fighting birth control, they are fighting abortion pills.

      • James1754

        I am aware of that, it appears that Mrs. Boxer is not.

        • Sunshine43

          It appears Boxer is aptly named……dumb as a “box” full of dryer lint!

  • Ed Herold

    If Hobby Lobby loses they should just pack up their operation and dust their hand of employing so many people. They really don’t have to put up with this crap!

    So what’s this, “the war on men.”

  • MaxineCA

    The most frightening thing to me is – 5 people in black robes will decide if we have to give up our religious freedom. Once they make their decision, it will be done, done, done. If they can decide this, what other rights are on the chopping block?

    • Nukeman60

      Four of those five are already in Obama’s back pocket. And 2 more apparently can be bought. Yep, screwed.

      • Sunshine43

        You do mean sucking his toes or whatever, do you not?

      Yeah, I’m not feeling really well on this at all! But *miracles* do happen!

    Libs have the cognizant ability of a 3 year old. LOL Seiously…

  • Taurnil Oronar

    No wonder the woman’s “movement” is as it is, unable to discern the difference between a contraceptive and erm, ummm pleasure enhancement. Pathetic indeed.

  • tinlizzieowner

    I know that it’s probably beyond this Twit’s comprehension but ‘Viagra’ is the opposite of ‘birth control’. 😉 😉

    • Conservative_Hippie

      Excellent point!

      • tinlizzieowner

        Boxer probably hasn’t seen ‘a hard one’ in years, anyway.
        😉 😉

        • 4liberty

          In her case, all the Viagra in the world wouldn’t help. Talk about birth control, a picture of her would cause major shrinkage for any man!!

          • Sunshine43

            A paper sack would be needed!

    • Sunshine43

      But, Tin, she “don’t get it”! Her neurons are dying off at an alarming rate……poor thing!

  • http://PolitiBrew.com Rshill7

    Boxer’s lame attempt at blurring the issue. Aimed straight at no information voters.

    I think it’s anti-woman to kill unborn ones. I mean, what is more anti-woman than flat out killing them? I’d say that in Boxer’s vacuous cranial cavern, it’s more anti-woman to call a woman Ma’am, than to kill one.

    So, I profoundly disagree.

  • notebene

    The biggest problem this twit has is that she thinks she is more of a woman for killing the unborn and bashing men! As a woman…I find her arrogant, ignorant, and highly insecure with her own sexuality. If you have to put down everyone around you or kill someone to make yourself seem significant, then you are insignificant and unworthy of respect!

    • lawngren

      I’m getting the impression that Barb is not on your Christmas card list.

        Neither is Nancy or Hillary! My list gets smaller every year! Saves on postage!

          LOL!

    • NPC

      She’s just being thru to being a libtatrd.

  • Sentinel

    Barbara Boxer’s parents should have practiced birth control. This is one of the most insufferable witch’s in Congress. She and Lois Lerner are cut from the same cloth. Except Lois is trying to hide and Barbara is trying to be seen.

  • warpmine

    Totally contrary to the subject, Boxhead is looking to forward the meme “war on women” so essentially she’s sparring with herself by herself on this one….and she calls herself a boxer.

    • NPC

      So now we have a new meaning for the word ‘sparring’?

  • Conservative_Hippie

    Apparently intelligence is not a prerequisite for public office in California!

    Dems just have to fool enough stupid people to get reelected. And since our schools are churning out more and more stupid people each year, the future of Dems appears quite secure.

  • NYGino

    Let me ask you a question Ma’am; is it only men who enjoy the benefits of Viagra?

    • bobringer

      Ma’am? MA’AM? I’ve worked 8,000 years to attain this position. You shall henceforth refer to me as Senator Boxer.

      • NYGino

        Yes Ma’am.

    • Nukeman60

      No, apparently, according to Boxer, Hobby Lobby also loves Viagra. In fact, I think they have a prominent shelf at the front of their stores – right next to the flower boxers…er…daffydildos…er…wait, what art or craft would actually need it, btw?

      • NYGino

      Premarin and Viagra would be a comparative drug for this discussion in my opinion.

    If you want to play that card then you need to include premarin.

    • MattMusson

      Viagra does not stop a beating heart.

      • stage9

        Quite the contrary allegedly…LOL!

  • http://PolitiBrew.com Rshill7

    She made the same comparison on the Senate Floor 4 years ago:

    Needs some new material. Something relevant to the issue at hand would help too.

    • Nukeman60

      Ha! Four long years and no one around her has been brave enough to explain the difference to her. Impressive.

      Talk about living in a bubble.

      • http://PolitiBrew.com Rshill7

        She’s having a hard time comprehending cause and effect.

        Cause = Unborn baby girl in the womb.

        Effect = Another living, growing, woman.

        She seems to think removing the cause enhances the effect.

        Perhaps she’ll be happy if insurance providers are also not required to pay for men to have abortions, chemical or otherwise. That could probably be worked out amicably, .

  • lawngren

    “I would think that you’s get tired of hurtin’ every now and then…”

  • http://PolitiBrew.com Rshill7

    I never thought Hobby would need a Lobby to advocate for First Amendment freedom. Maybe millions of dollars in attorney fees will suffice.

    The American Bar Association is no doubt fine with it.

    Every time Congress tries to rip up another guaranteed freedom, attorneys make more money defending folks who want to claw those freedoms back.

  • OldmanRick

    Boxer is two bricks short of a load. She should retire now that she is demonstrating to the world that she has a very limited capability for rational thought.

  • Conservator1

    To compare Viagra with Plan B illustrates a number of points.

    1) Leftists like Boxer are ignorant of healthcare issues, the Constitution and definitely medications. Viagra doesn’t and CAN NOT cause an abortion.

    2) If leftists leaders are dolts, what does it say about the people who vote them into office? Low information voters doesn’t quite demonstrate the ignorance of public policy, especially on an issue like this one.

    3) All of the problems associated with progressivism and the dishonesty in implemented socialistic policies pushed for by Hussein is only made possible by a complacent media that doesn’t report news, but actively supports such policies.

    If not, perhaps the numbers of low information voters would decrease. But the leftist minions who run news outlets prefer stupidity over education in there determination to help fundamentally change America.

    • phil

      re. 1)
      Why should we fund sex at all ???

      • Conservator1

        IMO, taking Viagra which is covered by insurance isn’t funding sex. Likewise, oral contraceptives can be used by patients for conditions unrelated to sex by people who can’t conceive. In either case, I view the use of medications susch as these as a treatment for a medical condition.

        • phil

          so the comparison of medical Viagra (unrelated to sex) to funding contraceptives to promote a sex-on-demand-lifestyle is false, Right ?

          How come i never heard a GOP politician refute these libs who always bring up this argument ???

          • Conservator1

            We both are fans of Ted Cruz and while I’m not certain if he has opined on this issue, I know one thing for sure; he will be the voice of conservatives in the GOP that will refute the false argument.

            • phil

              true,

      • Sunshine43

        Good point!

  • Conserv_58

    Is there not enough compelling evidence for reasonably rational and sane citizens to not come to the conclusion that the democrat party is rife with people that should be in straight jackets and institutionalized? After hearing the outrageous and utterly inane comments that are exiting the mouths of Harry Reid, Barbara Boxer, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Sheila Jackson Lee and Elizabeth Warren, to name a few, there is no doubt that these inbred lunatics have no place in politics at any level.

  • phil

    to be honest, i partly agree with Boxer that taxpayer’s shouldn’t fund sex aids to anyone, (except she thinks it should fund for “everyone”),

    however she totally misapplied this here, as it is obviously a different issue of religious liberty,

  • Sandra123456

    See why term limits are needed to give the rest of us relief from other State’s fools?

    Maybe the other 49 States should kick California out of the Union.

      According to berry, we have 57 states…

    As my friend’s mother used to say: YOU DON’T HAVE THE SENSE GOD GAVE A GOOSE!

  • Mike H1776

    That has to be the dumbest statement I have ever heard, (besides Hilary for president of course). what does one have to do with the other one kills, the other does not, just stupid. just shows how far out there these people are. They have no morals, no sense of right and wrong, and absolutely no spiritual guidance in them at all. they show their red colors all the time with these statements and have no white and blue in them.

  • John Queue

    Yep…Right up there with Pelosi and Reid…as she has always been. This is what stump-stupid looks like…and her sister Lee from Texas.

    Here’s a link if you’re interested I thought was a good read on the matter: http://themattwalshblog.com/2014/03/25/a-brilliant-and-innovative-solution-for-women-who-want-birth-control/comment-page-1/

  • joyfulgiver

    What you need to understand about Boxer, is that in the 1990’s while lobbying in favor of partial birth abortion, Ms. Boxer, or should I say Senator Boxer, actually said, “a baby is not a baby until you bring it home from the hospital.” I wonder what she was carrying those 9 months while she was pregnant with all her kids.

    Words, those nasty things, they always come back to bite ya!

    http://www.ncregister.com/blog/danielle-bean/barbara-boxer-pro-choice-until-you-bring-baby-home

    • K9_00BK

      Both Boxer and her kids crawled out from under a rock located in a nasty swamp…the swamp Pelosi promised to drain. But Americans are known for having a short memory.

  • imatellau

    Her words ring true to how the feds think of the citizens……
    you have no individual liberty or freedom….

  • puma_for_life

    Is she that stupid? She doesn’t understand the issue at all but thinks she can have an opinion…

  • kong1967

    I don’t know of any cases where Viagra killed an unborn child. I don’t particularly care for coverage of Viagra, but at least it can be argued as a medical condition. Killing an unborn child can’t and is a moral issue.

    The argument that they are keeping women from exercising their rights is bogus. The women just have to pay for it themselves. Hobby Lobby isn’t preventing them from doing anything.

  • RocklinConservative

    Viagra has the complete opposite effect as birth control.

  • K9_00BK

    Most insurance doesn’t cover Viagra…

  • anonymous

    She’s missing one small detail; MOST insurance DOESN’T cover Viagra!! How did you miss that point! I’ve have good insurance plans my major carriers and NONE of them cover Viagra!

  • LuscombeFlyer

    I…,but she…, what?

    Viagra is to abortifacients as artichokes are to platypuses. WTF is she even talking about?

    • Dr. Strangelove

      It’s the pretzel logic of twisted moral equivalency.

  • Poptoy1949

    Oh just shut the HELL up.

    • Dr. Strangelove

      +1

  • clubgitmo

    Just how freaking dumb is this liberal broad?

    • ColonelNeville

      Possibly beyond measure. Ah, but like all elitist affluent leftists, she’s not so stupid that she doesn’t go where the corruption n’ thus big free money and the easy mob ride is. Barbarian Boxerwood is hideous. No, really.

    • elizabeth greeley

      Here’s what I’m getting tired of “The War on Women” liberals are not just stupid they are evil.

  • GDD2010

    Ummm. I have one of those “Cadillac Plans,” and Viagra is definitely not covered. What is she even talking about?

    • Dr. Strangelove

      Policies I had in the past covered it. IDK about now with all the changes going on.

      • GDD2010

        Not anymore. They restructured them because of the “war on women” that insurance companies had to focus on treatment for women, leaving many things for men, in the dark.
        I had to call my insurance company b/c some procedures I need are not listed and I had to confirm that they were covered. Even the person on the phone was stunned that everything for women is listed but only a scant few are for men.

  • Mac in Texas

    Senator Boxer doesn’t have any problem with the murder of 60,000,000 unborn babies by abortion, but thinks that viagra for men is unfair to women.

  • ManaMoffa

    Viagra can also be used by women for many disorders

  • mainelysteve

    Viagra helps create life, birth control helps prevent life and Boxer is too F’ing stupid to know the difference!

  • Poor62

    Checking with friends, none of them have coverage for Viagra through their health insurance any more, but their wife’s birth control was still covered even before Obamascare. Just another urban myth that the progressives use in their war on women.

  • Sunshine43

    Barbara Boxer is pathetic! She keeps interjecting herself into situations, although with imbecilic comments, to make herself sure that she is still relevant! Tragic and with such a low IQ level apparent, it is a wonder she remains in Congress! But then, I remember she is from the land of fruits and nuts! We all can remember that “she worked so hard”!!! PFTTT!

    • elizabeth greeley

      She’s just one of many female Democrats/Liberals who needs a lobotomy.
