It seems that you are correct. I would have never known! LOL

Education
Limbaugh graduated from Cape Central High School, in 1969. His father and mother wanted him to attend college, so he enrolled at Southeast Missouri State University. He dropped out after two semesters and one summer; according to his mother, "he flunked everything", even a modern ballroom dancing class.[3] As she told a reporter in 1992.

Rush Limbaugh-14 commamndments of the religious LEFT:

1.Thou shalt have no other God except thyself; after all, it's thy self-esteem that counts. If thou doth not love thyself, who will?

2.Thou shalt not make any graven image out of any substances which cannot be recycled.

3.Thou shalt not take the name of liberals in criticism, including feminists, racial minorities, or any person who thinks he is a victim of America.

4. Remember the anniversaries of Roe vs Wade and Anita Hill's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and keep them holy.

5. Honor thy mother. If she is dysfunctional, it is thy father's fault.

6. Thou shalt not kill. With these exceptions: life forms under the second trimester, and those opting for medically assisted suicides.

7. Thou shalt not commit adultery. Unless thou aspirest to high political office, useth a condom, or cannot help it.

8. Thou shalt not steal. Unless thou art disadvantaged or upset with a jury verdict.

9.Thou shalt not bear false witness. Unless thou art discussing the history of the 1980's, art campaigning, or can afford good legal counsel in the event that thou art discovered.

10. Thou shalt not covet. Unless thou art the victim of gender-related oppression or institutional racism, or art still angry with Reagan's tax cuts.

11. Always hide the real truth about thyself.

12. Never admit who or what thou really art when campaigning for office.

13. Always blame someone else for what thou dost - even so far as to blame the entire society.

14. Thou shalt oppose all punishment - except when conservative Republicans or religious right people criticize thee.

I found this a while back:

Rush's 35 undeniable truths...

Rush: The 35 Undeniable Truths
As read by Rush Limbaugh on his radio show, Friday, February 18, 1994:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(All equally truthful: number 1 is not more or less important than 35.)


There is a distinct singular American culture - rugged individualism and self-reliance - which made America great.
The vast majority of the rich in this country did not inherit their wealth; they earned it. They are the country's achievers, producers, and job creators.
No nation has ever taxed itself into prosperity.
Evidence refutes liberalism.
There is no such thing as a New Democrat.
The Earth's eco-system is not fragile.
Character matters; leadership decends from character.
The most beautiful thing about a tree is what you do with it after you cut it down.
Ronald Reagan was the greatest president of the twentieth century.
The 1980s was not a decade of greed but a decade of prosperity; it was the longest period of peacetime growth in American history.
Abstinence prevents sexually transmitted disease and pregnancy -every time it's tried.
Condoms only work during the school year.
Poverty is not the root ("rut") cause of crime.
There's a simple way to solve the crime problem: obey the law; punish those who do not.
If you commit a crime, you are guilty.
Women should not be allowed on juries where the accused is a stud.
The way to improve our schools is not more money, but the reintroduction of moral and spiritual values, as well as the four "R's": reading, 'riting, 'rithmatic, and Rush.
I am not arrogant.
My first 35 Undeniable Truths are still undeniably true.
There is a God.
There is something wrong when critics say the problem with America is too much religion.
Morality is not defined by individual choice.
The only way liberals win national elections is by pretending they're not liberals.
Feminism was established as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society.
Follow the money. When somebody says, "It's not the money," it's always the money.
Liberals attempt through judicial activism what they cannot win at the ballot box.
Using federal dollars as a measure, our cities have not been neglected, but poisoned with welfare dependency funds.
Progress is not striving for economic justice or fairness, but economic growth.
Liberals measure compassion by how many people are given welfare. Conservatives measure compassion by how many people no longer need it.
Compassion is no substitute for justice.
The culture war is between the winners and those who think they're losers who want to become winners. The losers think the only way they can become winners is by banding together all the losers and then empowering a leader of the losers to make things right for them.
The Los Angeles riots were not caused by the Rodney King verdict. The Los Angeles riots were caused by rioters.
You could afford your house without your government - if it weren't for your government.
Words mean things.
Too many Americans can't laugh at themselves anymore.

Limbaugh on torture of Iraqis: U.S. guards were "having a good time," "blow[ing] some steam off"
May 05, 2004 3:40 pm ET
0 Comments
Hours before President George W. Bush announced plans to address the Arab world to condemn the abuse of Iraqi prisoners by U.S. military personnel at the Abu Ghraib prison, Rush Limbaugh justified the U.S. guards' mistreatment of the Iraqis, stating that they were just "having a good time," and that their actions served as an "emotional release."

As reported by Wonkette.com, Limbaugh's comments can be found on his website. From the May 4 Rush Limbaugh Show, titled "It's Not About Us; This Is War!":

CALLER: It was like a college fraternity prank that stacked up naked men --

LIMBAUGH: Exactly. Exactly my point! This is no different than what happens at the Skull and Bones initiation and we're going to ruin people's lives over it and we're going to hamper our military effort, and then we are going to really hammer them because they had a good time. You know, these people are being fired at every day. I'm talking about people having a good time, these people, you ever heard of emotional release? You ever heard of need to blow some steam off?

The day before, on his May 3 show, Limbaugh observed that the American troops who mistreated Iraqi prisoners of war were "babes" and that the pictures of the alleged abuse were no worse than "anything you'd see Madonna, or Britney Spears do on stage."

LIMBAUGH: And these American prisoners of war -- have you people noticed who the torturers are? Women! The babes! The babes are meting out the torture.

LIMBAUGH: You know, if you look at -- if you, really, if you look at these pictures, I mean, I don't know if it's just me, but it looks just like anything you'd see Madonna, or Britney Spears do on stage. Maybe I'm -- yeah. And get an NEA grant for something like this. I mean, this is something that you can see on stage at Lincoln Center from an NEA grant, maybe on Sex in the City -- the movie. I mean, I don't -- it's just me.

He comes from an educated and wealthy family tough. he must have recieived all of his smarts through osmosis? At least he learned to use his real name, now that's integrity!

Rush Limbaugh was born into a prominent Missouri family, and raised in a town about thirty miles from the Kentucky border. His grandfather, the first Rush Hudson Limbaugh, was America's Ambassador to India in the Eisenhower administration. His uncle, Stephen Limbaugh, was appointed federal judge by Ronald Reagan, and his cousin, Stephen Limbaugh Jr, was appointed to the U.S. District Court by George W. Bush. His father was a prominent local attorney, who imbued his children with conservative ideology. His brother, David Limbaugh, is a lawyer and conservative writer.

Apparantly he started in radio as a disc jockey on his home town's KGMO (part-owned by Limbaugh's father) while he was still in high school, using the on-air name "Rusty Sharpe." He dropped out of college, and eventually landed a job as a morning disc jockey at a small top-40 radio station in McKeesport, PA, near Pittsburgh. He quickly moved to a bigger station in Pittsburgh, where he worked as "Jeff Christie", and then to Kansas City, where he used his real name.

Rush's GAY buddy revived his career! FACT:


Limbaugh's radio career was revived by Norm Woodruff, a San Francisco radio executive who urged friends at Sacramento's KFBK to hire him at a time when he was essentially unknown in the radio business. Woodruff even took Limbaugh shopping for clothes, improving his appearance to make a better impression on KFBK brass. The station decided to take a chance, putting Limbaugh on in what had been Morton Downey, Jr.'s time slot. His ratings were better than Downey's, putting Limbaugh's career back on track. In telling the story of his success, Limbaugh occasionally mentions Woodruff's help, but he never mentions that Woodruff was openly gay, and died of AIDS in the 1980s.

Top 10 Racist Rush Limbaugh Quotes

1. I mean, let's face it, we didn't have slavery in this country for over 100 years because it was a bad thing. Quite the opposite: slavery built the South. I'm not saying we should bring it back; I'm just saying it had its merits. For one thing, the streets were safer after dark.

Okay Rush, slavery was not a good thing for the millions of African Americans who were enslaved, raped and beaten. The streets weren't at all safe for African Americans. Slavery not a bad thing? Someone should put Rush on a plantation for him to see how great it is. Keep on fear and race mongering Rush, you might get to Goebels status.

2. You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray [the confessed assassin of Martin Luther King]. We miss you, James. Godspeed.

Martin Luther King is a national hero, not a black hero. Everybody in the United States celebrates his birthday, children are taught to look up to him as a hero in school. He's earned the respect and admiration of the world and you believe the man who killed him was a hero? This is beyond racist. This is evil, mean spirited, subhuman. Praising the assassin of one of our great American heroes is beyond the scope of regular racism.

3. Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?

No but I've noticed that all racist bigots think like Rush Limbaugh. Comparing a respected black politician and minister to common criminals is Jim Crow racism. Maybe all black people look alike to him, but I've never seen a picture of a wanted criminal that looks like Jesse Jackson. A serial killer that looks like Rush Limbaugh on the other hand.

John Wayne Gacy

4. Right. So you go into Darfur and you go into South Africa, you get rid of the white government there. You put sanctions on them. You stand behind Nelson Mandela — who was bankrolled by communists for a time, had the support of certain communist leaders. You go to Ethiopia. You do the same thing.

The communist connection is an old way of dealing with black leaders. They used it on Martin Luther King, they're using it on Barack Obama and Limbaugh used it on Nelson Mandela. By siding with the racist apartheid regime over a world-wide symbol of peace and freedom, Limbaugh has shown he's a global racist.

5. Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.

Limbaugh is once again fear mongering and race baiting by associating professional black athletes with criminals and gangmembers. He continues the fear mongering association of good, decent, hard working African Americans as criminals.

6. The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies.

Now Limbaugh is saying that an organization with a storied tradition of representing the positive black people for change in their communities are criminals and rioters. An organization that has been represented by intelligent professional African Americans, that has played a part in the Civil Rights movement and continues to be an intelligent, concerned voice for the African American community is degraded to common criminals. There you go Rush. Keep racism alive!!!!

7. They're 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?

Decent human beings care Rush. Someone out of that 12% may just become President of the United States. Not caring about black people? Even George Bush wouldn't admit to that.

8. Take that bone out of your nose and call me back(to an African American female caller).

Okay Rush that's classy. The old African bone in the nose stereotype. Wasn't funny when the racist white school kids called the black kids that and it's definitely not funny when a grown man with audience of millions of easily influenced dittoheads says it either.

9. I think the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. They're interested in black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well. I think there's a little hope invested in McNabb and he got a lot of credit for the performance of his team that he really didn't deserve.

I wasn't super offended by this, the whole black quarterback/coach thing has been going on for years in sports, but the quote was so offensive that Retired General Wesley Clarke said:

There can be no excuse for such statements. Mr. Limbaugh has the right to say whatever he wants, but ABC and ESPN have no obligation to sponsor such hateful and ignorant speech. Mr. Limbaugh should be fired immediately.

When a respected, retired general condemns the statement of a sportscaster, you know he's gone too far.

10. Limbaugh attacks on Obama. Limbaugh has called Obama a 'halfrican American' has said that Obama was not black but Arab because Kenya is an Arab region, even though Arabs are less than one percent of Kenya. Since mainstream America has become more accepting of African-Americans, Limbaugh has decided to play against its new racial fears, Arabs and Muslims. Despite the fact Obama graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law school, Limbaugh has called him an 'affirmative action candidate.' Limbaugh even has repeatedly played a song on his radio show 'Barack the Magic Negro' using an antiquated Jim Crow era term for black a man who many Americans are supporting for president. Way to go Rush.

So Rush Limbaugh has managed to make racist attacks on four of the most admired and respected people of African descent in the past one hundred years, in Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Colin Powell and Barack Obama. He has called for the assassin of Martin Luther King to be given a medal, and said slavery was a good thing. He has claimed that Joe the Plumber, who isn't even a plumber is more important in this election than Colin Powell, a decorated military veteran who has served honorably in three administrations. How can the Republican party stand by this man and let their candidates appear on his show? Rush Limbaugh's comments are so racist, they're funny, in a Borat, Archie Bunker kind of way. What is not funny is the millions of dittoheads who listen to him, who take in and re-spout all the racist rhetoric that he spits. Limbaugh's statements are echoed in the racist, angry Palin/McCain supporters who shout 'kill him,' 'terrorist,' 'communist,' 'traitor,' 'socialist' and 'off with his head.'

Yes, what a winner indeed. here are some quotes from Rush Limbaugh that I found on-line..

"And don't forget, Sherrod Brown is black. There's a racial component here, too. And now, the newspaper that I'm reading all this from is The New York Times, and they, of course, don't mention that." --on the 2006 Ohio Senate primary race involving then-Rep. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), who is white

"This is no different than what happens at the Skull and Bones initiation...I'm talking about people having a good time, these people, you ever heard of emotional release? You ever heard of the need to blow some steam off?" --on the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal

"Too many whites are getting away with drug use...Too many whites are getting away with drug sales...The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them, and send them up the river, too." --in 1995

"I am addicted to prescription pain medication." --in 2003

"Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society."

"We're not sexists, we're chauvinists -- we're male chauvinist pigs, and we're happy to be because we think that's what men were destined to be. We think that's what women want."

"She comes to me when she wants to be fed. And after I feed her -- guess what -- she's off to wherever she wants to be in the house, until the next time she gets hungry. She's smart enough to know she can't feed herself. She's actually a very smart cat. She gets loved. She gets adoration. She gets petted. She gets fed. And she doesn't have to do anything for it, which is why I say this cat's taught me more about women, than anything my whole life." --on his cat

"She sounds like a screeching ex-wife." --on Sen. Hillary Clinton

"I've been racking my brain. I've been trying to figure out how Bob Dole's luggage got on my airplane...I told the doctor, I said, 'Look, I'm worried about the next election.' ... A misunderstanding." --after he was detained by custom officials for possessing Viagra with a prescription made out in someone else's name

"The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies."

"They oughtta change Black History Month to Black Progress Month and start measuring it."

"Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it."

"Sorry to say this, I don't think he's been that good from the get-go. I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well." --on Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, while working as a commentator on ESPN

"The only way to reduce the number of nuclear weapons is to use them."

"There are more acres of forestland in America today than when Columbus discovered the continent in 1492."

This guy is an actor. His insanity feeds his addictions. He depends on the right wing fanatics to listen to his SHOW, for a reason..

According to a 2001 article in U.S. News & World Report, Limbaugh had an eight-year contract, at the rate of $31.25 million a year. On July 2, 2008, Matt Drudge reported that Limbaugh signed a contract extension through 2016 that is worth over $400 million, breaking records for any broadcast medium — television or radio. In 2007, Limbaugh earned $33 million!

"You could afford your house without the government if it weren't for the government."

"Liberals attempt through judicial activism what they cannot win at the ballot box."

"You can put lipstick on a community organizer, but it doesn't make him presidential material."

"No, no: you never apologize -- particularly about something you're right about. Well, that is, unless you're married."

"Barack Obama did not inherit a mess. He leads a mess. He inherited the United States of America, where anything is possible."

"By the way, anybody know the difference between Barack Obama and an empty suit? Snerdley, you know? I don't know what the difference is, either. Sorry."

"If an economic recovery happens, the Democrats are S.O.L., politically. Now, what does that tell about you their politics and their economics?"

"Will some reporter, or some Republican on the Sunday shows, please ask why tax cuts raid the non-existent Social Security Trust Fund but all the Democrats' new spending doesn't? Will someone please ask that?"

"Liberal Democrats are inexorably opposed to tax cuts, because tax cuts give people more power, and take away from the role of government."

"I believe that life begins at conception and that killing that human life is justifiable only when it's necessary to save the mother's life."

"The dirty little secret is that the vast majority of the people in this country live their lives as conservatives, and given conservative leadership, they'll respond to it in landslide droves."

"If Thomas Jefferson thought taxation without representation was bad, he should see how it is with representation."

"I'm not opposed to the protection of animals. But the best way to do that is to make sure some human being owns them." --

"The world's biggest problem is the unequal distribution of capitalism. If there were capitalism everywhere, you wouldn't have food shortages."

"(C)ompassion is defined not by how many people are on the government dole but by how many people no longer need government assistance."

"Let me leave you with a thought that most honestly summarizes my sentiments: I love the women's movement...especially when I am walking behind it." ---

"If economies are built 'bottom up', Obama, wouldn't Mexico be the number one economy in the world? Wouldn't Cuba be an international superpower?"

"The Drive-Bys are reporting on my failure to drink the Obama Kool-Aid when it's their job to do exactly what I am doing: it is their job to be skeptical!"

"The United States will now pay aid money for abortions around the world during the Obama era of responsibility. Let's hear it for responsibility! Do I hear an 'attaboy'?"

"The American dream has an entirely different definition to Democrats and liberals than it does to you and me. Their American dream is the United States becoming a full-fledged socialist country."

"When the economy is strong, liberals want to grow government. When the economy is weak, liberals want to grow government. There is no business cycle in government, there is just growth."

"The modern-day Democrat Party does not believe in the Bush Doctrine. They believe in us getting hit and reading the people who hit us their rights, and then giving them access to the US Constitution."

"Ladies and gentlemen, the economic disaster, the tailspin, the destruction of the greatest economic engine in the history of the world, these policies of Barack Obama's, which have led us to this point, are precisely why I fearlessly said and still say, I hope he fails."

"The administrative cost of many welfare programs in this country is 72 cents per case. For every dollar in taxes set aside for welfare recipients, only 28 cents winds up in their pockets. Yet, the Utopians still believe we have to create more government entitlements."

"This Chrysler bankruptcy is a huge Barack Obama failure. Well, actually, at the end of the day, it's a dynamic success for Barack Obama. This is precisely what he wants to happen: the United Auto Workers ending up with majority control of this company."

"The minute you say that conservatism includes people who are pro-choice, you've destroyed conservatism, because conservatism stands for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and without life, there is nothing else, is there?"

"Conservatism is an active intellectual pursuit; it requires a constant vigilance. It has nothing to do with feelings. Liberalism is the most gutless choice you can make. You just see suffering and say, 'Oh, I feel so horrible!'"

"What Sarah Palin is demonstrating is that you do not have to come out of an Ivy League university in order to lead this country. So much of the conventional wisdom about American politics has been stood on its head since the arrival of Sarah Palin."

"(T)he USA is the greatest nation, not because Americans are inherently superior but because its government was founded on principles which seek to allow maximum individual achievement." --

"What about feeling sorry for those...who pay the taxes? Those are the people NO ONE ever feels sorry for. They are asked to give and give until they have no more to give. And when they say "Enough!" they are called selfish."

"The whole point of Social Security with FDR was to ensure never-ending power for the Democrat Party by identifying it as the party that cares more about you and is going to make sure you never have to suffer at all at any time for any reason -- and people bought it."

"Why the hell should we be worried about crossing the aisle and trying to break bread with people who would rather embarrass Sarah Palin than protest Iran? I'm sorry, but what is there that we have in common with these people?"

"These are some of the meanest, most vile people in the country -- the supporters of the Democrat Party and the Obama ticket. They are deranged, they are unhinged, and they are genuinely dangerous, but the media will only praise them as being 'activists' and 'involved'."

"Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor fractured her ankle in an airport on the way to Senate meetings. Given Sotomayor's preference for Latinas in every walk of life, I hope she can find 'a wise Latina' doctor to set that ankle as opposed to an average white doctor."

"Let me tell you who we conservatives are: We love people. When we look out over the United States of America, when we are anywhere, when we see a group of people, such as this or anywhere, we see Americans. We see human beings. We don't see groups. We don't see victims. We don't see people we want to exploit. What we see -- what we see is potential."

"The economist Walter Williams points out that with the money we've spent on poverty programs since the 1960s we could have bought the entire assets of every Fortune 500 company and virtually every acre of US farmland. Still, the left wants more. Yet, not only didn't we eliminate poverty, but today many social problems are far worse than they've ever been."

"The assault on America's religious underpinnings is based on a distorted interpretation of the establishment and free exercise clauses of the First Amendment. Those causes are "Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of a religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." Only a lawyer could claim not to understand the plain meaning of those words. The government is prohibited from setting up a state religion, such as Britain has, but no barriers will be erected against the practice of any religion."

"I'm convinced that a lot of people simply don't know what's available out there and how it is possible to find a job and work your way up if you are willing to accept responsibility for your life. I know what it's like to be on the bottom. I've been broke. I've been fired seven times from jobs. And I don't even have a college degree. But I didn't blame anyone else for my problems. I knew that if I didn't try to solve them on my own or with the help of friends or family members, no one else was going to take care of me."

"Liberals have created, and the minority leadership has exploited, a community of dependent people, unaware of the true route to prosperity and happiness: self-reliance and self-investment. Instead, people are told that American is unjust, unfair, and full of disadvantages. They are told that their only hope is for government to fix their problems. What has happened is that generations of people have bought into this nonsense and as result have remained hopelessly mired in poverty and despair -- because the promised solutions don't work. And they will never work -- they never have."

"If the owl can't adapt to the superiority of humans, screw it...Now, I know that sounded heartless. But my argument follows simple, pure logic. If a spotted owl can't adapt, does the earth really need that particular species so much that hardship to human beings is worth enduring in the process of saving it? Thousands of species that roamed the earth are now extinct. Do you hear anyone making the case that the earth would be better off if dinosaurs were still roaming the planet?

"By government giveaway programs, individuals are often hurt far more than they are helped. The recipients of these programs become dependent on the government and their dignity is destroyed. Is it compassionate to enslave more and more people by making them a part of the government dependency cycle? I think compassion should be measured by how many people no longer need it. Helping people to become self-sufficient is much more compassionate than drugging them with the narcotic of welfare."

"The liberals, you see, do not want to confront conservative ideas; they just attack conservatives as a group, and particularly their motives. If you believe what they say about us, you would think that if someone like Bill Bennett, or Jack Kemp, or myself were driving through South Central Los Angeles and looking at the slums and poverty, we would go: Oh, man, this is great -- they've got nothing, so that means we get more. It's simply preposterous. We all want to live in a great country. And for the country to fulfill its potential, you need individuals to be the best they can be -- not the government taking care of people."

"My friends., it's time to face a hard cold fact: Militant Islam wants to kill us just because we're alive and don't believe as they do. And they have been killing us for decades. It is time to stop pretending these are mere episodic events and face the reality that our way of life is in grave danger. Now, this threat is not just going to go away because we choose to ignore it.

"Some say we try diplomacy. Yeah, well tell me, how do we negotiate with people whose starting point is our death? Ask them to wait for 10 years, before they kill us? When Good negotiates with Evil, Evil will always win. And peace follows victory, not words issued by diplomats.

"But some Americans, sadly, are not interested in victory. And yet they want us to believe that their behavior is Patriotic. Well, it's not. When the critics are more interested in punishing this country over a few incidents at Abu Grahib and Guantanamo Bay than they are in defeating those who want to kill us; when they seek to destroy a foreign surveillance program which is designed to identify those who want to kill us and how they intend to do it; when they want to grant those who want to kill us, U.S. constitutional rights, I don't call that patriotic.

"Patriotism is rallying behind the country, regardless of party affiliation, to defeat Islamo-Fascism. Patriotism is supporting our troops on the battlefield, not undermining the mission and morale. But let there be no doubt about this. America will prevail. We're the same country that survived a bloody Civil War, defeated the Nazis and the Soviets. Each generation has a responsibility to the next. Our generation will not disappoint."

"You know, if you look at -- if you, really, if you look at these pictures, I mean, I don't know if it's just me, but it looks just like anything you'd see Madonna, or Britney Spears do on stage. Maybe I'm -- yeah. And get an NEA grant for something like this. I mean, this is something that you can see on stage at Lincoln Center from an NEA grant, maybe on Sex in the City -- the movie."

"I don't understand what we're so worried about. These are the people that are trying to kill us. What do we care what is the most humiliating thing in the world for them? There's also this business of them all wearing hoods and how that's also very humiliating. You can see more guys wearing hoods at a [Sen.] Robert Byrd birthday party 40 years ago than we've seen in these prisoner photos."

"Often the charge of racism is used to shift our focus from the criminal to society's inequities. The media, the liberals, and the black leadership have created a climate of censorship with respect to any issues involving race, other than their prescribed views on the subject. They have been successful in labeling many events as racist when clearly they were not. The Willie Horton issues is a classic example of this. The Willie Horton ads are now unquestioningly accepted as a sordid, racist, blemish on the Republican party. But this description is infinitely more than the facts allow. The truth is that the Willie Horton political advertisement had nothing to do with race. The issue was crime and Michael Dukakis's softness of approach with criminals. Willie Horton was one of eleven convicted killers permitted to leave prison to visit their families as part of a furlough program under then Massachusetts Governor Dukakis. Horton was in prison for murdering a man after castrating him and stuffing his genitals in his mouth. During his furlough in 1987, Horton tied up a man and made him watch while Horton raped the man's wife. After the incident, the state legislature tried to stop killers from getting furloughs, but Dukakis fought against it because he said the program was 99 percent effective. The Republicans thought it might be appropriate to communicate that truth to the American people. Apparently so did the Eagle Tribune, a Massachusetts newspaper that won a Pulitzer Prize for exposing the flaws in Dukakis's furlough program. Of course, when this publication ran the story long before the ad was even contemplated by the Bush campaign, no one called that liberal publication racist. The Horton ad was an excellent illustration of the tangible consequences of the liberals' general approach to the criminal justice system. Their sympathy is almost always reserved for the criminal rather than for the victim."

I think Rush is a jerk! Rush Limbaugh is a rotund radio talk show host, bloated political commentator, and porcine conservative television personality. Though he makes his thoroughly well-deserved $35 million a year by regularly castigating liberals as "dope-smoking hippies," Rush Limbaugh is himself a well-documented "prescription" drug abuser. Limbaugh seems thoroughly untroubled by this, mostly because hypocrisy has become such a major part of the modern Republican platform, right alongside guns, creationism, and yellow ribbon bumper decals. Oh, and lest it go unsaid: Rush Limbaugh is a dick; a huge one.
Rush Limbaugh's creatively titled The Rush Limbaugh Show pollutes the airwaves all across the U.S. on Premiere Radio Networks, the same dick company that syndicates (or "syndickates") the likes of fellow dicks Bob Costas, Dr. Laura, and Glenn Beck. As such, Limbaugh is credited with reviving American AM radio, although you really have to wonder whether anyone would have actually missed AM radio had it been allowed to die in peace.

Yep, I confess, this is the REAL me, Rush Limbaugh. More about me here. Critics say that Rush Limbaugh likes to talk out of his ass. But that's only half the story: Rush can't stop talking about butt, either. It's too bad that Sigmund Freud's long dead, because Rush is the old shrink's dream patient, with an obvious diagnosis: Limbaugh has an anal fixation.

Rush is riding high; on Wednesday he made headlines with a faux-resignation as head of the Republican Party, handing the reins over to nemesis Colin Powell. But even as his power in the party grows, El Rushbo remains fixated on political humiliation -- his, and other people's -- and it's amazing how frequently such humiliation focuses on the hind quarters.

Last week, Limbaugh lamented that President Obama will likely get away with destroying the economy, because "he's being followed around by a bunch of sycophants who are going to die of anal poisoning" -- a disease that Google suggests Limbaugh himself invented. Most notoriously, the talk radio king complained in January: "We are being told that we have to hope [Obama] succeeds, that we have to bend over, grab the ankles, bend over forward, backward, whichever, because his father was black, because this is the first black president."

Limbaugh's tuchis talk is so constant, it doesn't seem to be just the joking around of a clown. (Is it mere coincidence that he got out of serving in Vietnam because of an anal cyst?) When he talks so vividly about being, well, taken by the president, there has to be a little psychosexual stuff going on. Anal rape jokes, in particular, are a running theme for Limbaugh. In fact, they're one of his favorite ways of describing acquiescence or obedience. Note the recurring racial theme.

When gay activists called for a boycott of Colorado in the early 1990s, Denver Mayor Wellington Webb came to New York to seek the support of his fellow African-American city chief, Mayor David Dinkins. Limbaugh saw Dinkins being pulled in two directions: "And the question is should he bend over forward and grab the ankles for this narrow special interest group or should he remain in solidarity with his black bro?"
In the run-up to New Jersey's 1993 gubernatorial election, Limbaugh said that the only people who'd vote for Democrat Jim Florio were those willing to "bend over, grab their ankles" and accept new taxes.
The Clinton administration's proposal for healthcare reform was a command, as Limbaugh wrote, to "Bend over, America."
When Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman sought to court African-American votes by apologizing for his party's past, Limbaugh grumbled, "Republicans are going to go bend over and grab the ankles."
Three years later, he accused Democrats of being submissive to black and gay voters. "Democrats will bend over, grab the ankles, and say, 'Have your way with me,' for 10 percent and 2 percent of the population?"
Occasionally, though, someone shows the proper defiance.

When Sarah Palin refused to cooperate with investigations of Troopergate, Rush glowed approvingly: "She didn't bend over and let them have their way."
And those who do willingly submit get nothing but contempt from Limbaugh. A favored term of abuse for these is "butt boy."

CNN's Ed Henry is Obama's "butt boy," but ABC's Jake Tapper, to his credit, is not.
NBC's Andrea Mitchell, somewhat confusingly, is the "butt boy" to Rep. Barney Frank.
Of course, bending over has its risks. As we saw last week with his reference to Obama sycophants, Limbaugh has a very specific formulation for what you can catch from too much of it.

Democratic honcho Terry McAuliffe, Limbaugh warned, "will die of anal poisoning because he is so close to drilling Hillary [Clinton]."
Key John McCain ally Sen. Lindsey Graham "is certainly close enough to [McCain] to die of anal poisoning."
And if British Prime Minister Gordon Brown continues "slobbering" over Obama, he'll "come down with anal poisoning and die from it."
That's probably why Limbaugh is so wary of bending over himself. He's told us so many times:

"I have a very sensitive rear end because I am a sensitive guy."
"I never bend over forward in public, especially in these times."
"I dropped something, is what the confusion is here and I -- in -- in New York City I never bend over forward. And -- so -- in public. So I needed somebody to come pick it up for me."
"I seldom bend over forward in public, for obvious reasons."
Still, sometimes it's nearly impossible for a public figure to avoid being probed anally.

Doesn't anybody see what's really happening? In July 2008, Rush Limbaugh signed a contract with Clear Channel Communications that worth more than 400 million dollars. When he was interviewed about this contract he told the New York Times: "First and foremost, I'm a businessman. My first goal is to attract the largest possible audience so I can charge confiscatory ad rates. "I happen to have great entertainment skills, but that enables me to sell airtime." Rush will say anything to attract listeners, especially conservative listeners because it's all about business.This kind of sloppiness, ignorance and/or fabrication is run of the mill in Limbaugh's commentary, both broadcast and print. From dioxin to Whitewater, from Rodney King to Reaganomics, Rush Limbaugh has a finely honed ability to twist and distort reality.

Limbaugh is critical of feminism, saying that "Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream of society." He also popularized the term "feminazi", referring to radical feminists "to whom the most important thing in life is ensuring that as many abortions as possible occur.

Here:

Sources: RushLimbaugh.com, RushLimbaugh.com

Women don't like Rush Limbaugh, and he wants to know why. A new poll shows that the radio host has a 49% disapproval rating among women—with only 37% favorable—so he held a "female summit" on his show yesterday, inviting women callers of all political stripes to tell him what he's doing wrong. "I own the men, and what must I do now to own women?" he asked. And women answered.

Women called in to tell Rush he was pompous ("Irrelevant, the woman's never listened"), that he should be more vulnerable ("You're trying to emasculate me here"), and that he should drop terms like "infobabe" ("It's creative and it's artistic, and it is a signature term"). In the end, Rush concluded that women change their mind about him when men lead them to the show. "Which means something I have always known, that women do want to please their men."

Interesting thread to say the least. So, I read the part where Rush seems to be fixated on "BUTT" and the part where the guy who revived Rush's Career was GAY and died of Aids. I know that Rush always put down drugs users, but turned out to be an addict himself. He has ZERO respect for woman clearly. So, the conclusion I come to, as in many cases with the Republicans, he must have had the VIAGRA on that trip, to use while he was with little boys!

________________________________________________________

(CBS/AP) Rush Limbaugh could see a deal with prosecutors in a long-running prescription fraud case collapse after authorities found a bottle of Viagra in his bag at Palm Beach International Airport. The prescription was not in his name.

Limbaugh was detained for more than three hours Monday at the airport after returning from a vacation in the Dominican Republic. Customs officials found the Viagra in his luggage but his name was not on the prescription, said Paul Miller, a spokesman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

Miller said the alleged violation could be a second-degree misdemeanor. The sheriff's office was investigating and will soon turn the case over to the state attorney's office, which had no immediate comment Tuesday.

Under the deal reached last month with prosecutors, Limbaugh was not to be arrested for any infraction for 18 months in exchange for authorities deferring a charge of "doctor shopping." Prosecutors had alleged the conservative talk-show host illegally deceived multiple physicians to receive overlapping painkiller prescriptions.

Do the talk shows teach all this ?

I have put in over 12 years in the military and was never taught waterboarding.

I was taught to do my job and follow orders. NOTHING about torture.

Name---Rank--Serial Number

I don't consider myself a conservative , never will .

I believe in the COTUS too much.

If you would , could you give me a few names of some real conservatives that ever searved in the military.

They seem to know so much about what its like.

I really don't care if you don't respect my military service . I served for people like Rush, so he could expound his jibberish.

That makes me sick. Some soldiers I knew, put dead little kids heads on sticks like trophies and laughed.

Its very hard to talk to neocon's about the military because they know nothing about the military except what they hear on radio/tv talk .

As a futher note I did not vote for OBAMA or MACAIN. But I will always suport and honor the office of the President , no matter how is there.

I do not hope they fail.

Rush Limbaugh's best-selling books The Way Things Ought to Be

that are misleading, distorted, and factually incorrect. Indeed,

Limbaugh's claims often fly in the face of carefully considered

scientific evidence, and put him in opposition to the views of the

most eminent scientific experts, as reflected in the conclusions of

such esteemed bodies as the National Academy of Sciences and

the World Meteorological Organization. Though Limbaugh likes to

frame the debate as a contest between him and the "environmental

wackos", it is really Limbaugh's word against the overwhelming tide

Some of the things I like best about Rush Limbaugh are: his work ethic, his perseverence, his vulnerability, his gentleness, his good mind and his facility with words and ideas, his patriotism, and his loving spirit. Despite overwhelming evidence that his narrow worldview is way too confining for his large heart and fine intelligence, he seems fiercely determined so far to force unruly facts into his too-small mental paradigms, in order that he may continue to be safely "right" about whatever he's said up until now.

Rush Limbaugh is afraid (as are we all) of being "wrong," and also of not-knowing, when the truth is, the more one knows, the more one knows one doesn't know. What I do know about Rush is that he means well, and that he wants very much to believe that what he's doing will work for him and for America and Americans. Certainly his past approaches have made him rich. They've also left him feeling very much alone in an angry, frightened, adoring, clueless crowd.

Rush Limbaugh has crossed the line into the worst kind of vile slander, claiming that the man who murdered a security guard at the Holocaust Museum, yesterday in Washington, DC, is "a leftist". Limbaugh vehemently professed the belief that James Von Brunn held views he had acquired as a result of exposure to propaganda "of the left" and people like those "around Obama".

James Von Brunn is a self-professed white supremacist. He expressed hate for the president and for "Jews". He has reportedly professed a belief in the United States being a "white" nation. He appears to be dangerously obsessed with the idea that he is at war with a government intent on taking his guns away. Not one of these views is supported by any progressive group. Not one of those views is representative of people that the president associates with.

Limbaugh's willingness to defame and slander public figures associated with the Democratic party, his willingness to make statements alleging dangerous affiliations that are close to incitement to violence, his willingness to slander the president as a racist who associates with terrorists, is now comprehensively demonstrated. We know Rush tells despicable lies on a daily basis. The task thinking people or citizens interested in civility have before them now is figuring out why Limbaugh is so full of hate and anger.

Is he really attempting to incite violence against the president of the United States and his party? Is he chemically imbalanced in a way that makes him a potential danger to others? Is he just morally bankrupt and that seriously irresponsible with his words that he would accuse the president of associating with people who profess the white supremacist views of this psychopathic murderer?

Of course it's not in Rush Limbaugh's playbook to resort to any amount of self-examination, no matter how brief or reluctant. But Rush needs, very seriously, to search his soul, try to understand that responsible gun control could have kept this convicted felon (who in 1981 received an 11-year sentence for entering the Federal Reserve with a firearm in order to "make a citizen's arrest") from killing an innocent man, and recognize that he has relentlessly pushed against any and all forms of gun control, either to line his pockets by growing his audience by sowing fear or because he is indifferent to the risk firearms pose to human life.

Rush should search his soul and try to understand whether or not trying to explain away Von Brunn's heinous actions by associating them with some non-existent left-wing conspiracy is in fact a way of condoning such violence. He should search his soul and seek to understand what it would mean to use his influence responsibly and simply distribute facts about such tragic events, instead of using them to try to blame people who don't think like he does.

To answer the question : "Where are all the coservatives tonight? Or are the majority of the Pleasantoinians really liberal? Perhaps I will not have to move out of this town after all. Keep up the great work here."

Perhaps the Conservatives are:

1)Remaining calm because they know anger posted here by the anti-Rush folks is an emotional defense mechanism used when they feel vulnerable.

2)Refusing to engage in name-calling and put-downs.

3) Waiting for a rational manner in posting to set in....may have to wait awhile for SOME.

4) Taking the initiative to call "time out" and resume discussion at a time when SOME posters have had a chance to calm down.

5) Giving SOME all the space needed to demonstrate what some posters do best: have a tantrum We conservatives know that during a tantrum, a person is literally out of their mind. Emotions have taken over -- overriding the frontal cortex of the brain, the area that makes decisions and judgments. That's why any discussion or reasoning is simply not an option -- the reasoning part of the brain isn't working.

6) Sometimes the silence speaks louder then SOME posts....in all honesty they just are not worth responding to.

7) Rush needs no defense from a P town person. He can defend himself.

8) Respecting your freedom to define who SOME of you really are by what you say. Saves others the time of having to explain people like you. We believe in free speech and we believe we can even live in the same town as you do. We are confident enough in our ability to disagree without having to move. I guess we are happier and more resilient

Is there any virtue in a mob-mentality attacking a man just because you disagree with his perspective? Would you also throw the first stone if you saw him in public hoping others would join you?

Let's remember that we can sound off, but hating does not encourage anything but fear in others. Is that your goal? After reading these posts, I certainly wouldn't want to say that I agree with anything that Rush says, even if I do, in this hostile environment. That really is scary when fear can inhibit freedom of speech. You can always make a point instead of attacking a person. This is the debate of ideas, not a debate of someone's heart.

In April, Rush Limbaugh specifically derided a DHS report, intoning "There is not one instance they can cite as evidence where any of these right-wing groups have done anything."
Limbaugh is now proved wrong and the DHS proved to be right, frighteningly right. Dr. Tiller's murder by a radical anti-abortionist and now the shooting at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum by a Holocaust denying anti-Semite proves that the DHS analysis was correct. This is a rise in right-wing domestic terrorism and it is murderous and dangerous. The shooter killed the guard who successfully defended the museumgoers, including the many children, parents and grandparents who visit that memorial. Murder and more murder by homegrown terrorists--right-wing extremists bred in this country.

Each day right wing conservative media people such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter, and Laura Ingraham, et al. spew forth a steady dose of anger, hatred, vindictiveness, and misinformation. O'Reilly and Beck would object to being labeled as right wing conservatives, but if they talk like a ducks, squawk like ducks, then their ducks. Feelings, as opposed to facts, are often the basis of what these people say. Americans who share the same viewpoint as these media personages get there endorphins pumped by listening to them. For the rest of us, they represent a black bile that promotes divisiveness, discourages cooperation, and contributes to the negative mood of the country.

The Constitution guarantees the right wing conservative media people the right to spew forth their venom each day. The nature of the society in which we live allows them to distort, misinterpret, and sometimes lie about what is happening and why it is happening. What is most notable is that these people are much better at tearing down and criticizing then they are at providing positive solutions. In fact, providing positive solutions would be counterproductive to their ability to draw an audience of angry, frustrated people.

Conservatives have legitimate ideological beefs with Obama, rightly expressed in sharp language. But the invective in some quarters has unmistakably amped up. The writer Camille Paglia, a political independent and confessed talk-radio fan, detected a shift toward paranoia in the air waves by mid-May. When "the tone darkens toward a rhetoric of purgation and annihilation," she observed in Salon, "there is reason for alarm." She cited a "joke" repeated by a Rush Limbaugh fill-in host, a talk-radio jock from Dallas of all places, about how "any U.S. soldier" who found himself with only two bullets in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Osama bin Laden would use both shots to assassinate Pelosi and then strangle Reid and bin Laden.

This homicide-saturated vituperation is endemic among mini-Limbaughs. Glenn Beck has dipped into O'Reilly's Holocaust analogies to liken Obama's policy on stem-cell research to the eugenics that led to "the final solution" and the quest for "a master race." After James von Brunn's rampage at the Holocaust museum, Beck rushed onto Fox News to describe the Obama-hating killer as a "lone gunman nutjob." Yet in the same show Beck also said von Brunn was a symptom that "the pot in America is boiling," as if Beck himself were not the boiling pot cheering the kettle on.

The right wing conservatives have turned up the heat with their hate talk and attacks on the administration. When Rush Limbaugh says things that are hateful, these words give fuel to these homegrown hate groups. Limbaugh can and should contribute to the discussion of issues, but his verbal attacks on the race and background of the President are wrong. Yes, we have freedom of speech, but there is responsibility that goes with that.

Rush is malnourished and none of his supporters are offering to help him? Obese people are malnourished people. I would not be at all surprised that if he got the medical care that he so badly needs, his rants would stop.

The rants and vile comments are about being out of control and not knowing how to manage it internally. Sad...

Wow,

Your lack of insight is amazing, but perhaps not surprising. I think you are the "apidimy" (which is actually spelled 'epitome') of the hypocrisy you criticize others with. Hypocrisy means not standing blameless as you accuse others of the same behavior. You are participating in the activity you accuse others of that listen to Rush. That is the epitome of hypocrisy. You epitomize hypocrisy. I said nothing of supporting anyone myself. I simply pointed out the behavior should improve. I said that this thread is a scary forum - I didn't pick on anyone specific. It's a magnet for those who want to speak hate. I said there is no virtue in that. Responding to others hate with reason and requests for civility is hardly hypocrisy - especially when I am not exhibiting any. Continuing with my stone-throwing example above, would you also yell at me if I was the one asking you all to stop throwing the stones in you each had one in your hand?

Your answer to this is the exact description of your own virtue, perhaps hypocrisy as well.

"Is there any virtue in a mob-mentality attacking a man just because you disagree with his perspective? Would you also throw the first stone if you saw him in public hoping others would join you?"

My answer is "no" and that is why I am against all of the Obama bashing that takes place at this site. I support freedom of speech. I don't have a problem with someone rationally explaining why they dislike our president - even better if they actually focus on the *policies* or *behavior* they dislike. If you look at the titles of most of the threads started about Obama though, you will see that it is indeed "bashing" and not simply "disagreement". Free speech does indeed ensure the right to engage in such non-productive ranting, but why do it?

I really cannot imagine following a person who has made even 1/10th of the comments Rush has made. Ram, I agree, there is reason for alarm.

This is what Rush blasted last week:

"If al Qaeda wants to demolish the America we know and love, they better hurry, because Obama's beating them to it". Limbaugh told this to Sean Hannity. When Hannity tried to suggest naughty liberals had twisted Limbaugh's comments about hoping Obama fails, Limbaugh disagreed. "I don't hide from it. I do want and I still want Obama to fail... I define America succeeding by virtue of Obama failing. I love America!"

MSNBC and all the other dumbA$$ liberals can take a backseat in the bus now and keep their mouth shut, but Rush has the balls to call a spade a SPADE. I hope every WHITE LIBERAL man and woman who disagrees with Rush loses their high paying job to a BLACK or a MUSLIM and has to live on minume wage the rest of their lifes. Then they might have a different opinion of affirmative action and quotas. And Rush was right on with the racist comment about Sonia Sotomayor to.

Limbaugh has what is paramount to cult following, an indication to any and all enemies of the United States that his words count! When Rush Limbaugh continues to state that he wants the United States President to fail, his words ring like the angels music in Al Queda camps: 10% of the US population what its government to fail: hooray, we can help!

WASHINGTON, June 14 (Reuters) - CIA director Leon Panetta says it's almost as if former vice president Dick Cheney would like to see another attack on the United States to prove he is right in criticizing President Barack Obama for abandoning the "harsh interrogation" of terrorism suspects.

"I think he smells some blood in the water on the national security issue," Panetta said in an interview published in The New Yorker magazine's June 22 issue.

"It's almost, a little bit, gallows politics. When you read behind it, it's almost as if he's wishing that this country would be attacked again, in order to make his point."

Rush Limbaugh, and Dick Cheney and their treasonous words represent, "A clear and present danger!" At war words are often more damaging than is deeds. Are Cheney and Limbaugh words worse than action, Cheney Limbaugh; Treasonous? Limbaugh and Cheny are encouraging Al Quedaand pose a clear and present danger!

A few more than one hundred days ago, Vice President Cheney was in possession of any and all of the most sensitive information regarding United States security. When a man, with that knowledge go publicly and says that the United States Administration is weakening the country, his word must be credible; just the rallying words United States enemies would like to hear!

There are those who claim that uncivilized behavior by the United States in Guantanamo, and elsewhere are serving to recruit Al Queda enemies; if they do, they do that at a much lesser scale than do words from the [ex] Vice President of the United States who inform the world that the United States is weakening, and because of that, its enemies can become stronger; what an incentive for potential terrorists?

Limbaugh and Cheney are influential and dangerous people; the US must muzzle the two, or suffer consequences beyond anyone imagination!

Since this is a free country, and Rush Limbaugh speaks without the bernefit of sensetive, or any other significant knowledge, he must be allowed to speak his mind, the public is well advised to simply stop listening! When listeners think and realize that the poorly educated, morally handicapped, drug abuser that Limbaugh is only speaks in order to get attention and create controversy, they are likely to surelu, perhaps slowly, shy away from Limbuagh and allocate him the insignificant spot in society that he should occupy, a whiner, screamer man full of hate, jealousy, and self pity.

In the case of Cheney, the case is much more serious. Since the United States is in a state of war, Cheney words based on sensitive Unites States state information, his words of encouragements should be examined carefully by the Justice and Defense Departments and assessment of appropriate charges should be made!

If waterboarding and other 'inhumane' treatment at GITMO is a recruiting tool for terrorists, what were the recruiting tools for the Indonesian night club bombings; the USS Cole bombing; the USMC barracks bombing in Beirut; 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia; the WTC attack in '93 and the WTC attack in 2001.

Seems to me the terrorists recruiting efforts aren't affected at all by making somebody walk around with his underwear on his head!

Really? Summary executions? You would make a good Nazi. You should educate yourself about the holocaust. Summary executions were commonplace in Nazi concentration camps. There wasn't a whole lot of "due process". Part of what makes the United States of America great is that we are ruled by laws. No one is above the law. No one can decide to be judge, jury, and executioner.

Maybe you think a policeman should be allowed to execute a suspect on the spot if the policeman is sure he has arrested a murderer?

You should spend some time studying American history and learn about concepts like the rule of law.

A good movie showing the cruelty and lawlessness of the Nazis would be Schindler's List. I recommend you rent it.

Rush is a GAY Pedophile!

Rush Limbaugh was arrested for carrying Viagra without a prescription to the Dominican Republic, on a trip without his wife (a wife who never shared his bed but instead lived a few streets over and only got together with him for social engagements). Rush was detained for more than three hours at the Palm Beach International Airport after customs agents found a bottle of Viagra containing 29 "Blue Pills" prescribed to someone else in his luggage. The Dominican Republic has a reputation for being gay travel friendly with opportunities of discrete sex with local boys and men. Indeed, the Dominican Republic is one of the biggest sex tourism destinations in the world, thanks in part to Internet sites that extol the country as a "single man's paradise.

This man is truely a sicko!

Thats Queer,

The POINT is that RUSH BASHES Gays often and openly, as part of his show. This is a selling point to the conservatives for him. So, more hypocrocy on his part! In his "Jeff Christie" phase, Rush Limbaugh worked under an assumed identity, as did many closeted homosexuals during that era. After being arrested for soliciting a gay man in Pittsburgh, Limbaugh was fired from KQV radio.


Posted by Judge, a resident of Another Pleasanton neighborhood
on Jun 14, 2009 at 10:12 pm

After failed stints with Missouri radio stations, Rush Limbaugh
moved to Sacramento, CA, where he met and became "friends"
with Norm Woodruff, a flamboyant, openly gay man with a
great deal of influence in the local radio scene. Woodruff, who
mentored Limbaugh in the ways of affluence and elitism (traits
Rush mocks today), would later died of AIDS. I knew Rush and Woodruff at the time. It was no secret that they were pals.


Posted by Jack, a resident of Downtown

Some more public facts:

After miserably failing on television, Limbaugh spiraled into
depression, eventually becoming addicted to pain pills
prescribed to him for his pilonidal cyst (a.k.a. "Butt Boil"). For
nearly eight years Limbaugh abused Hydrocodone, a synthetic,
stronger version of heroin.

In effect, Limbaugh spent nearly a decade stoned off his
bleeding backside, and ultimately built up his tolerance to levels
requiring dozens of pills per day in order to, as Limbaugh once
confided in his maid, "get my buzz on."

A textbook example of the damning effects of drug abuse,
Limbaugh's addiction precipitated a swift drop in weight,
deafness in both ears, and a marked decline in mental faculties.
He also became increasingly paranoid - requiring his provider to
meet him at night behind restaurants, next to dumpsters,
where he'd hand over cigar boxes stuffed with "cabbage" (cash)
in exchange for some "little baby blues" (pills). Limbaugh's
desperation peaked in 2003, when he groped his provider in an
attempt to check her for a wire tap.

By late 2003 the whole world knew of Limbaugh's drug
addiction, though by virtue of their lack of character the
majority of his fan base remained loyal listeners.

I would like to add that it is a fact, that many more conservatives have been BUSTED for being either homosexual and or molesting little children over the years.

Being homosexual is not a crime, but spouting off conservative values while living a secret life is a joke. Molesting children IS a crime. The "church" and the submissive nature of years of swallowing ridgid consevative value standards, promotes these behaviors.

Just look at all the conservative polititions that have been busted.
Look at all the Priests, pastors, youth church leaders, and SUNDAY SCHOOL teachers, who have been BUSTED fro sexual CRIMES against children.

Also, it's a well known fact that when young girls are subjected to these ridgid conservitive church "values" and shamed for natuaral sexual curiosity, they go WILD when out from under the wing. CHURCH GIRLS have always benn EASY girls.

Take that to the bank.

Prop 8 has nothing to do with pointing out (not "charging") the irony of someone who "demonizes" (a word I learned at PW) the LGBT community is actually thought to be gay himself.

Don't throw 'em in the ditch.. you might need the ditch for cover.

These terrorists don't take prisoners.. they have no prison camps. They just behead the troops or contractors and leave the bodies hanging from bridges or tossed in the river.

If I've got a 16 man action team on a mission and I capture 10 enemy.. who watches them? Who takes them to the rear? Is there a rear? I've probably jumped in or been dropped by a chopper. If I send 4 troopers out with prisoners, I'm below minimum strength and all my people are at risk.

These are unconventional fighters.. they are not signatories to any Conventions, and shield themselves with women and children. We're gonna sit down and negotiate? We're in the mountains of Afghanistan and we're gonna say "Drop the weapons and put your hands up!" I don't think so.

They go to heaven for killing infidels.. I'm only suggesting we speed up the process. Have you heard the expression.. "Kill 'em all. Let God sort 'em out!"? Marine snipers just want to arrange the meeting.

If someone is running towards me with an AK-47, and hand-grenades or rocket propelled grenades, he's not 'accidentally' in the wrong place at the wrong time. I'm throwin' 3 to center mass. Judge, jury and executioner? He'd do it to me in an instant!

These are people who will slit the throat of an airline cabin attendant.. fly airplanes into buildings.. strap bombs to their children.. detonate truck bombs in public areas.. and would slit your throat given the opportunity.

This is nasty business. War is nasty business. Man's inhumanity to man has existed since the first caveman noticed the cave next door had a pool, and better light. The Sioux at the Little Big Horn didn't take prisoners.. they took scalps. I'm not gonna give you a history lesson.. but, much of war is kill.. or, be killed. I'm not going to 'be killed'!

Take a GOOD look and tell me how you really feel?

Tell me what you would do, and how you would act if we were invaded!

OMG! Thats pretty bad! Rush, sorry for hijacking your Rush thread dude!

This rings true:

"Most Americans are in deep denial that their country would butcher children and civilians, routinely torture, or bomb homes. Yet nearly every American saw this live on CNN with his own eyes on 2003-03-20 when America did its Shock & Awe bombing of the residential sections of Baghdad on the opening day of the war. Granted, they did not see the blood spurting, but they saw apartments full of families being turned to rubble. Everyone knows perfectly well what happens when a bomb hits an apartment. Americans pretend the $2 trillion they borrowed for the war went for reconstruction. If that were so, every Iraqi would be living in a mansion. That money clearly went for mayhem and destruction. Soldiers are trained and paid to kill, not build schools or hand out candy. America has behaved worse than Nazi Germany. Americans plug their ears and say "lah lah lah" as if that would erase their responsibility. How dare they claim to be a Christian nation!"

SPOT ON!

Rush Limbaugh, and Dick Cheney and their treasonous words represent, "A clear and present danger!" At war words are often more damaging than is deeds. Are Cheney and Limbaugh words worse than action, Cheney Limbaugh; Treasonous? Limbaugh and Cheny are encouraging Al Quedaand pose a clear and present danger!




A few more than one hundred days ago, Vice President Cheney was in possession of any and all of the most sensitive information regarding United States security. When a man, with that knowledge go publicly and says that the United States Administration is weakening the country, his word must be credible; just the rallying words United States enemies would like to hear!




There are those who claim that uncivilized behavior by the United States in Guantanamo, and elsewhere are serving to recruit Al Queda enemies; if they do, they do that at a much lesser scale than do words from the [ex] Vice President of the United States who inform the world that the United States is weakening, and because of that, its enemies can become stronger; what an incentive for potential terrorists?




Limbaugh and Cheney are influential and dangerous people; the US must muzzle the two, or suffer consequences beyond anyone imagination!




Since this is a free country, and Rush Limbaugh speaks without the bernefit of sensetive, or any other significant knowledge, he must be allowed to speak his mind, the public is well advised to simply stop listening! When listeners think and realize that the poorly educated, morally handicapped, drug abuser that Limbaugh is only speaks in order to get attention and create controversy, they are likely to surelu, perhaps slowly, shy away from Limbuagh and allocate him the insignificant spot in society that he should occupy, a whiner, screamer man full of hate, jealousy, and self pity.




In the case of Cheney, the case is much more serious. Since the United States is in a state of war, Cheney words based on sensitive Unites States state information, his words of encouragements should be examined carefully by the Justice and Defense Departments and assessment of appropriate charges should be made!

The FACT is that the man is like an infectious disease. Look up the definition of disease!

He has a cult following that has more recently made a laughing stock of the entire conservative base, with hateful, angry, non factual, ranting, raving, lunacy. All over the internet and beyond.

This guy has greatly contrubuted to the hard line fanatic views and actions of the right, that is now a danger to the U.S.
