Democrat Sluts Can’t Do Math

Posted on | October 1, 2012 | 17 Comments

The image above is one of the “e-Cards” available at BarackObama.com that offers a phony statistical argument for ObamaCare:

Dear Mom,
Mitt Romney says he would repeal the Affordable Care Act.
So here’s a quick question:
Can I borrow $18,000 to help pay for my birth control?
Thanks!

Whoa! $18,000 for birth control? If that number sounds strangely large to you, join the club. Conservative college student Christine Rousselle does the math, based on the simple fact that there are 14,600 days between the ages of 12 and 52:

Because our letter-writer has been reduced to asking her mom for money, we’re going to assume that she’s not very well off and she’s a bargain hunter. On Amazon.com, one can purchase a fishbowl filled with a variety pack of 144 Durex brand condoms for $25.89. Assuming she’d use one condom per day every single day between the ages of 12 and 52, that only equals $2,624.96 for 14,600 Durex condoms. For those of you who aren’t great at math, $2,624.96 is far less than $18,000. She’d have to be using around four or five condoms a day for 40 years for that number to even approach $18,000.
Suppose our cash-strapped friend prefers to use the birth control pill instead of condoms. In 41 states, she can get the pill for $9 a month at a Target or Walmart. That totals $108 per year, and $108 multiplied by 40 is $4,320, which still winds up less than $18,000. In the nine other states, the cost per month is around $30, which reaches around $14,400 over 40 years. These figures assume that our letter-writer plans on using birth control pills over the full length of time that she is able to get pregnant.

Using birth control every single day for 40 years, a slut’s total cost is still not $18,000 in a lifetime. So even if she’s putting out like a Pez dispenser — and, after all, she’s a Democrat, IYKWIMAITYD — she’ll have plenty of cash left over for vodka and Newports.

Another conservative student, Inez Feltscher, explains that to reach the $18,000 number, the Democrat propagandists assume that a woman will need “high risk AIDS testing”:

 

 

 

So the moral of the story: If you’re a slut who can’t do math — and you’re dumb enough to date Bill Maher — vote Obama!

 
Update (Smitty): glad I made it home to figure out what Blutarsky was on about. I’m looking at the Twitter client on the ‘droid phone and just rolling with whatever arrives:

    Maybe the whore thinks abortion is a form of birth control and gets lots of them performed on herself? Even then I think it would still cost less than $18,000 – someone should do the math for that one.

    Given the required frequency of use, combined with the inclusion of ancillary items like STD exams, doesn’t it seem like Obama’s policy is geared towards… you know… professionals?

    I’ve no first hand knowledge of the industry, but I ASSUME that those in the professional sex service industry are, you know, professionals and they know what their doing. I think the gist of Stacy’s story identifies the target audience, those who are utterly math challenged (and easily if not willingly duped).

    No, you can get a job and pay for your own.

    Obviously, Democrat Sluts will do anything BUT math.

    Let’s just face it, people: no one with any minimal competence at arithmetic is a potential Obama voter. His target audience is the public school crowd who had unionized instruction with federal mandates.

    You do realize that without the women’s vote, Democrats would almost never be elected, right?

    [Cough]…[clears throat]…uh…[clears throat] repeal the [cough] the 19th Amendment…[sustained throaat clearing]….

    Math, meth: it’s hits or mith.

  • scarymatt

    Duh…you just haven’t included the inflation adjustment for QE9.

    Well, 16 & 17 first, but then we do have to have that talk.

    If the letter writer is actually a whore, she is charging for sex and ought to be able to cover incidental expenses.

    In fact, she can probably write it off as a business expense.

    And if she is not actually a whore, the answer is still the same: charge for the sex and write it off.

    I’ll agree to that. However, I wonder if our chances of repealing those two Amendments wouldn’t be greater if we got rid of the 19th first.

    ‘…it’s hits or myths.’

    Fix that for ya.

    Conservatives can’t do math either. They claim they are “paying for birth control” as a positive cost when insurance companies offer BC coverage. But the fact is that offering such coverage SAVES money for the insurance company as well as the taxpayer. Conservatives are complaining about lowered costs. I guess conservatives never “got” the whole negative number thing.

  • scarymatt

    So what the hell is the $18,000 for? Why do we need to force insurance companies to offer something that makes them more profitable?

    I guess liberals never “got” the whole logic thing.
