In a healthy country populated with an intelligent, enlightened citizenry, Rush Limbaugh would today be standing on the bread line - right behind (or perhaps in front of) Sean Hannity, Michael "Savage" Wiener and Ann Coulter. He probably would have ended up as a used car salesman or a clerk in a liquor store. His opinion would not have been taken seriously by anyone except maybe a sympathetic bartender. Some bartenders are pretty good psychologists not to mention being fairly adept at feigning interest in the most boring of topics. There is a gentleman named Bill Vaughan who used to tend bar at the old Orange Inn Tap Room here in Goshen, New York. Heaven knows how many hours the poor guy spent listening to me waxing inebriate on all matter of subjects from the deplorable state of American politics to the age-old question as to who was the funniest of the two: Stan Laurel or Oliver Hardy? I would imagine that in a perfect society, no one other than a patient, world-weary and kindly mixologist would ever have bothered paying any attention to the opinions expressed by the likes of Rush Limbaugh.http://www.tomdegan.blogspot.com Tom DeganGoshen, NY
"In a healthy country populated with an intelligent, enlightened citizenry, Rush Limbaugh would today be standing on the bread line..."I couldn't have said it better myself, Tom. Because I believe that in your mind, intelligent, enlightened citizenry would be comprised entirely of people that think exactly as you do. In your perfect world, you see it as a great thing that conservative talk radio hosts would be in a breadline. Problem is in your world, EVERYONE would be in a breadline. If you had a clue about history you would realize that your utopia of everyone having equal access to bread has been realized in countless communist countries over the decades. In the former Soviet Union all citizens had an "equal right" to stand in line for 3 hours to spend a day's wages on a stale loaf of bread. If you had a clue about conservatism you would realize that, unlike you, we wish breadlines on no one. We also would wish you would realize that free markets, not government, has produced the economy that allows people in this country to buy a loaf of fresh bread in 2 minutes for under a buck. Then, while eating that bread, start up a computer that also was created in the free market. Then, while eating that bread, blog about how other people who have also done well in the free market should have to stand in a breadline that your perfect society would create for them. It is the free market that is the cornerstone of conservatism and talk radio is one of the the voices for conservatism. The free market has kept more people out of breadlines than any government program that has ever, or will ever, do. It is this truth that has kept conservatism and talk radio alive.
It seems to me that all the negative vibes this blowhard (Rush Hudson Limbaugh A.KA. Jeff Christie) has been spewing over these many years has come back to blow back on his face (A classic “Blow Back”). He always tries to give off the airs that he can have anything he wants but as we all witness those with more money and more influence tossed him aside like sack of potatoes and the ultimate insult was that it was done in public (money don’t buy you everything butterball). Now of course he blames everyone else (Michael J. Fox, Perez Hilton, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Sonia Sotomayor, Hillary Clinton, Olympia Snowe, ESPN, NFL, the media, basically people of color, the handicapped, women and gays) when of course all you have to do is listen to his show and plainly hear his daily prejudices filled sermons. So NFL, I salute you decision, job well done. And to the whaling cry baby perched on his self made pedestal, quit your whining it was your own fault. Don’t we all feel better?
News flash. Conservatives like Rush and Hannity are about as color blind as they come. We conservatives believe in every person to have an equal opportinity in life regardlesss of skin color, gender, sexual orientation.Liberals see skin color, gender, and sexual orientation first, and create laws around these traits and these traits alone.Which is more prejudice? I'd say the philosophy that judges based strictly on skin color is the one that is the intolerent philosophy.But in case that's not good enough, how about the philosophy that is responsible for publishing false statements allegedly made by Limbaugh. Or the same philosophy that believes them anyway.And if that's not good enough, how about the philosophy that claims to be for helping under-privileged minorities to have a chance. Yet this philosophy presides over minority poverty, minority violence, crappy schools for minorites, etc., etc., etc. in 100% of this country's inner cities.If you guessed the liberal philosophy on all these cases you get a gold star.If Rush Limbaugh is guilty of anything, it is his willingness to shine a light on these FACTS. For this he is labelled racist.Yes I know it feels good for libs to kick Rush out of the NFL. And it probably felt good for them that their savior won the Nobel Peace Prize as war erupts around the world.But in the end results are what matters. And the results of liberalism is a trail of social destruction for everything they touch. When will you see the devestation you have leveled against minorites? Have you looked in the heart of any liberally controlled city and seen the poverty and violence there. And libs are the first ones to note the skin color in these areas. What are the RESULTS of your policies?Results!Results!Results!When will you liberals look at your shithole pile of results? When will you stop blaming a person behind a microphone in another state, and look at rich silver haired white far left politicians that run these communities as the cause of all this.
He has spent years unfairly labeling others. Finally he had his judgment day.
I find it hilarious that you critics who have commented on this blog post sought it out for your gloats.Did it ever occur to any of you that you all suffer from psychological projection?
The NFL decides who becomes an owner not the other way around. All this blowhard (Rush Hudson Limbaugh A.KA. Jeff Christie) has to offer is his money and his opinions, (which in my opinion are on the fringes of racism, one mans opinion). There are many more groups biding for the Rams, not just his group. Lets face it there are more men with money (Marshall Faulk) that will gladly fill the slot and the Rams will win or lose depending on how well they work as a team and not on whether or not Rush is an owner.As for Vick, well he is a player (he has talent not like you, Rush or I, unless you are a NFL player?) and he served his time and the NFL decided we live in the land of second chances, so why not (I personally don’t like it but, oh well). Life has never been fair (NEWS FLASH!)Now as to the “Free Speech” argument, I guess many of you like myself heard Rush on Thursday “Almost in tears”, priceless. But the last couple of days he now is in his normal ranting and will continue until someone surpasses him, “Free Speech” continues, so what is being stifled, it simply is not true, of course, you may not have a radio, so you might want to get one.http://www.chasingevil.org/2009/10/rush-limbaugh-in-his-own-words.htmlPS – I am sure someone is working to put the tapes together maybe all you subscribers can help, since you are all about getting to the truth?PPS- Beauty Pageant Judge - Now I understand why he lost the weight, to find a new wife, creepy.
Projection dude. See above
