The Left’s Lynching Of Rush Limbaugh

March 15, 2012 by  

Wayne Allyn Root explains why the left couldn’t win the talk radio war. In defeat, liberals have changed tactics and are trying to destroy the conservative talk radio hosts themselves.

His opinions reach tens of millions of Americans as a regular columnist and commentator for many of the most popular political and business websites, including FoxNews.com. He also writes regularly for The Washington Times. He is the bestselling author of eight books. Root serves as national spokesman for several companies, as well as a Senior Economic Advisor. Root is also well known in the television and media industries. He has hosted, starred and produced many television shows.

    Lets see Libs been foaming at the mouth about Rush! Now we get a slave plantation worker go ballistic for their DemoCRAP Libtard masters! of Libtard land in hollywood! Libtards think Rush’s comments is crude he should be hanged,( figure of speech) and they think it’s okay for a Libtard to make a crude comments and attack a person when asking a question! Well this Libtard is full of hate and defending their Gringo slave masters!

    Sorry Libs I don’t listen to Rush, He is a Repube fanboy! I’ll stick with other non repube independent talk radio hosts,

    • DonnieB

      Stan, I may have one point where I disagree with you: I am not so sure that the Libs want to hang Rush figuratively. I do believe there are many who would opt for the real thing.

      Since the comment from Rush happened, Obama has LOST support. This whole thing didn’t go as planned by the Democrats. Hopefully the 2012 election will find thDem’sms not in power in the White House or Congress (either branch)

      The Tea Party will need to get a large gain in order to hold the GOP establishment’s feet to the fire and actually cut spending,

        The huge Soros NWO funded democratic machine is losing in the realm of “ideas, ideals and ideology”, the true democratic socialist agenda is being exposed, the hoax of Obama, Obama Care the socialist and communist nature of the democratic party and America is REJECTING them. America is not communist, nor socialist, its not what made America great, socialism is what is killing the economy and nomatter how much propaganda the left spews a couple guys on the radio telling the truth has more impact than all the lies and twisted truth the government controlled media can produce.

        Democrats full backing of NWO — UN sponsored Eugenics and Post Industrial destruction of America

        •Agenda 21 exposed as a land grab by international bankers sponsored by the UN to take all resources and means of production for them.

        •Vaccines exposed, cancer up 3000%, causing autisum, containing live cancer, polio, and other murdering sterilization toxins and contagion.

        •Floride and other chemical put in the drinking water by government causing sterility dumbing down the population, cancer, tumors death.

        •Closing of power plants, your electric bill will go up 1000%

        The Fluke/Rush issue is the latest example of NWO/Soros/Democrats wanting you the public to pay for EUGENICS – as per Agenda 21

        Think about this:

        Leon Penentta visited our troops the other day to make a speech, he had them disarmed in a war zone. Yes thats right, Leon had 200 US Marines disarmed or they could not enter the tent where Leon was making his speech.

        What does that tell us about Obamas UN loving little rat?

        Leon knows he is a traitor.
        Leon knows the troops know he is a traitor
        Leon knows he is a traitor the troops know he is a traitor and he knows they know.

        Traitor Leon is scared, as well all these NWO sellout Democratic Party traitors should be.

        Freedom Fighter…to add to your comment,

        The latest from the CBO is that The Affordable Health Care Act latest cost figures have been adjusted from $904 billion/10years to $1.76 TRILLION over 10 years and also the increased insurance premiums are a direct result of the AHCA. Also, under the Obama Administration, new regulations have added $46 billion in costs to businesses. This is four times the pace of the regulations under the previous administration’s first three years.

        Enjoyed reading your blog. Many Americans recognize the term liberalism has morphed into verbal malarkey, sleazeball gimmicks and pretentious rhetoric designed to hoodwink the public. Is it not self-evident that partisan, mumbo-jumbo tainted with empty platitudes cannot save Obama?

        I see FF is still of his meds. Doug, liberal policies built the middleclass worl you live in. We got the 40 hr week & paid vacations, environmental protections that protect your kids, started social security & medicare that your mentor Ayn Rand accepted & the tea baggers wanted the govt to keep their hands off. The VA medical where Freedomfighter gets his meds & tinfoil hats. The right to vote for you wife. What have your party done besides support the corporate masters that feed you the pablum that diverts your attention while they plunder the country & destroy the middle class. Ron Paul is smiling all the way to the bank…

      • Wyatt

        Gee Ralphy , what does that make Bill Maher , Pelosi , Waters etal ? Rush told it like it is and if the Left and Barry O can’t handle the truth then they should just pack it up . Mz Fluke is not what the media paints her to be . She is a 30 yr old woman claiming that it cost $3,000 a year for birth control . A months supply costs $9.00 at the counter so you do the math , that’s $108 a year , where is the extra $2,892 going ? Even if she is paying for her deadbeat boyfriends condoms it might only increase it to twice her claim . Maybe she is a madam and paying for a string of ladies ?

        At any rate , she’s supposed to be going to school earning a degree , not getting laid ! And now that she has had her moment in the sun , she’ll have her $22,000 a year job sharpening pencils down in Pelosi’s headquarters basement and fond memories of her phone call from Barry O and 15 mins of fame .

      • Flashy

        Wyatt…what is your wife taking? Sugar? i just went and checked in the med cabinet. Cost of the ones in our cabinet is $42.00 for one month. Add the quarterly exams in of around $250 or so…I can see the figure being somewhat inflated depending upon where you live and the doctor etc..but not much.

        And what about the other uses for contraceptive pills? You just leaving that out of the equation?

        Ok, freedomfighter. You cant handle my arguments, so you go off on a tangent. You call liberals commies, well they called my Dad a commie in the 1920′s cuz he supported the 40 hour week & all the benefits that unions eventually got us. Liberal policies created the middle class & you dont support those concepts, so that must mean you support the 1% & then if we are going to call each other names(which is what people do when they lose an argument), then that must make you a fascist. I’ll stick with the 99% if you dont mind. The 1% are America haters, they close plants, they fight safety rules which protect Americans & environmental rules that protects our kids. How come you hate America?

        Tony,

        You’re wrong. The Republican Party passed the 19th amendment to the Constitution over Democratic Party opposition in 1919 which gave women the right to vote. The EPA was enacted under the Nixon administration. You asked what the Republican Party has done to help the American people. They’ve done a lot over the years. In fact, they have a history of helping minorities more than Democrats. Read through the list of accomplishments at this site (http://www.gop.com/index.php/issues/accomplishment/). It may open your eyes a bit to reality. Certainly, our politicians have run amuck expanding these programs way beyond their initial charters which is something many of us regret today. Nevertheless, it is inaccurate to say Republicans have done nothing over the years to help people in this country.

      • eddie47d

        That’s immaterial since it’s the Republicans who want to abolish the EPA and quite often attack women’s rights.

        I thought there is a rule that forbids “name calling” in this column. Obviously it does not apply to certain writers. Just for curiosity I went to Webster to look up the “definition” of the word “slut”. It says it describes a woman that is dirty, untidy. Semantically it does not exhibit any denigrating expression. I also heard this word being used on movies by women calling other women they object to, mostly for bad conduct, especially in reference to their constant behaviors in sexual relationships. And these name callings are not even rejected by the opposite side.
        Maybe this word has entered into American slang and has assumed a different meaning?
        Also, what sounds better? Prostitute, whore or slut?
        The fact is if that young female law student claims she can no longer afford contraceptives because she needs to have sex constantly (?) though she still can pay some $45,000 in annual tuition expenses, she either should change her utterly abnormal sexual appetite or she should change her career altogether. I don’t think her sexual prowess could be used in her future legal career.
        For the life of me, I can’t imagine how her parents would feel when their daughter broke out her real life story in public. She doesn’t seem to feel any shame to reveal her personal “secrets”. Oh, that is right, this is her open and public declaration of personal “FREEDOM”!
        What poses even greater question mark is since when a Jesuit institution, represented by the president of the university, came out to defend such unsustainable claim to public “subsidy” and still can be the flag bearer of the highest moral standards in the Catholic Church? This student’s conduct in their institution is clearly in constant violation of the Sixth Commandment and they have not yet expelled her? What hypocrisy! Being an alumnus of another Jesuit university, I feel ashamed of being associated with it as of now.

      • Dano

        The radio/ TV mouth pieces commie or neocon just want to keep confusing Americans that they still have a choice and even have a voice in govt. Our Congress has been taken over completely by old man bush/clinton, but they still act liberal,clinton/ obamie, or half conservative bushes/ reagan. Liberalism is now Communism/ facism, Conservative is now neo-con, socialism/ facism, but they won,t admitt it. Whatever party is in control of either house they will vote to bankrupt us, destroy our military, free trade of industries away, spend like drunken sailors [sorry navy], give israel everything, pass agenda 21 land rights away, leave our borders open, let the patriot act protect our jock straps,Start or allow undeclared wars, Act like Rome before they FELL, Totally disregard the Constitution. WE don,t have 2 parties anymore, just the UN running America.

      • George E

        Eddie,

        Republicans do not want to live with dirty air and water, nor the excesses of the EPA and other governmental agencies. While the EPA may have accelerated the cleaning up of air and water it has also spent billions of dollars of taxpayer money and has shut down many businesses that would otherwise have been able to function. We need to constrain the EPA and most other government agencies to keep them from getting out of control. That’s what Republicans want.

        With regard to women’s rights, we want women to have equal rights. We do not support “rights” that conflict with common sense or our basic morality. For instance, liberals think it’s perfectly OK for women to abort unborn children at any time, even though these children could survive if removed from the womb after 20 weeks. I don’t see much difference in killing unborn babies after 20 weeks and killing children after they are born, using the same reasoning. To me, it’s just killing, and my morality tells me that’s wrong. If you want to call abortion a woman’s “right”, I just can’t agree. It’s no wonder to me that some young mothers think it’s OK to kill their children when the children become an inconvenience. Our laws must not conflict with basic human morality if we want to further and improve our civilized society. Liberals seem to think we can pass any law we want so long as we can force people to comply with it. That’s just wrong and is part of the unraveling of our civilized society.

  • revnowwhilewecan

    I’m kind of new to politics but it would seem to me that calling someone a slut on national radio is anything but conservative. I’m neither lefty nor righty but more ambidextrous so I don’t really know what the big deal is. I guess if Rush wants to call someone a slut for shock value, he can. If his only concern is getting listeners then that’s obviously the motive but if he loses advertisers because of it then so be it. He may lose Revlon and Disney but I’m sure Go Daddy and Jack Daniels can pick up the slack. I think if you have to call somebody a slut to get listeners, it won’t be long before he’s on after Howard Stern on satellite radio anyway. Does anyone listen to Stern anymore? Is he still on, and if he is….who cares?

    • Doc Sarvis

      Great post. Yes, Rush can say anything he wants – and does so. The advertisers can stay or jump as they see fit. Advertisers, who have ANY class whatsoever, have elected to jump. Rush is just marginalizing himself even further than before.

      • DonnieB

        I think that you are underestimating the American public and Rush’s advertisers. He has now gained sponsors. Unlike purely political polls, advertisers pay attention to what the public likes. I believe right now, a lot of John Q Public agree with the comments made by Rush.

        When the new ratings for radio come out, see if thaudiencece for Rush has risen or fallen.

      • Frank J.

        wrong again .now go back down to the basement and take your nap.

      • DaveH

        Doc,
        I’m certainly not sticking up for Rush, but what about the advertisers for the MSM Propaganda shows where they teach people to advocate helping themselves to other peoples’ money using Government as their surrogate thieves? It seems to me that Theft is a lot more morally repugnant than name-calling.

      • Flashy

        Doc…Rush is on the ropes. His advertisers have fled and those that remain are the weakest and least funded of the group. His ratings have plummeted and i doubt he’ll have the ‘weight’ he once did. Though his specially constructed chair will still have the reinforced bars holding it up to prevent it from collapsing .

        Rush attacked a private person in the most vicious manner, for wanting to testify before Congress. That was her “crime’ in his eyes. She wasn’t a public persona who was spewing garbage and wanting controversy and publicity ratings.

        He went after not only her, but all women. Whether for or against the legislation. it is a full blown attack by neanderthals against women and their standing as equals. For a party who espouses less government and less intrusion into our lives, it is the height of hypocrasy to say it is the government’s role to dictate medical procedures, doctors roles and advice, strict religious tenets and invade personal decisions which are some of the most personal, moral, and private anyone can imagine.

        They want to allow Viagra to be covered so men can ‘get it up” and have sex. yet deny contraceptives to women. They want to dictate doctors speech and insist on unecessary and perhaps dangerous procedures, drive up the cost and add to the rise of health care, and also have employers…for whatever reason, decide what is ‘moral’ in health care coverage and deny insurance coverage.

        yet…government is too intrusive … or so they say. HA!

        “Drive up the cost?” Perhaps you’d like to go to http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/03/14/cbo-health-law-estimate-shows-much-higher-spending-beyond-first-10-years/

        “The Congressional Budget Office has extended its cost estimates for President Obama’s health care law out to 2022, taking in more years of full implementation, and showing that the bill is substantially more expensive — twice as much as the original $900 billion price tag.

        In a largely overlooked segment of the CBO’s update to the budget outlook released Tuesday, the independent arm of Congress found that the bill will cost $1.76 trillion between now and 2022.

        That only counts the cost of coverage, not implementation costs and other changes.

        “The bill spends more than the president promised, it covers fewer people — probably 2 million fewer people — and it taxes more than was expected,” said Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., ranking member on the Senate Budget Committee.”

        Vig…care to show the CBOs estimates without the Health Care Reform?

        The main flaw in the Health Care Reform is it doesn’t include a Public Option. Such will be remedied …. i hope soon.

        Chew on this for a moment
        ===

        MONDAY, March 12 (HealthDay News) — If current trends continue, health insurance premiums will surpass the median U.S. household income in 2033, a new study says.

        Using data from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey and the U.S. Census Bureau, researchers calculated the premiums paid by Americans from 2000 to 2009 and compared them to incomes. They found that insurance premiums rose 8 percent from 2000 to 2009, while household incomes rose only about 2 percent.

        If those same rates continue during the next two decades, the average cost of a family health-insurance premium will hit half of median household income by 2021 and surpass it by 2033, the study found.

        The median household income was $49,800 in 2009.

        The study is published in the March/April issue of the Annals of Family Medicine.”
        ======
        The study further states that “In the coming years, the reforms that will come as a result of the 2010 Affordable Care Act will help to reign in the cost trajectory…”

        Now..what was that you were saying about adding to health care costs and reform not being needed?

      • Opal the Gem

        “Vig…care to show the CBOs estimates without the Health Care Reform?”

        Flushy….to quote you “look it up for yourself”. Especially since you provided nothing to back your claim about Rush.

      • Flashy

        Opal..I have looked it up. Which is why i asked Vig if he did. if he did, then what he posted was deliberately misleading. if he didn’t, then he should so he knows the erroneous information.

        I also copied and pasted the study recently concluded about the health care costs skyrocketing and the effects of the recent health care reform showing it is slowing down the costs of health care and there is more required to rein it in.

        As for my statement about Rush ? you don’t agree…fine. Post any stat you’d care to as far as showing how his attacks on women and his scurrying around like a rat amongst garbage haven’t hit him in ratings, sponsorships or influence.

        Rush plays to the TP trilogy of hate, fear and ignorance. hopefully even the ignorant will realize the disease he spreads and how it harms America.

        Doc, the latest from Rush…
        ABC News
        Mar 7, 2012

        Limbaugh told his listeners today that “everything’s cool,” noting that many of the advertisers that have yanked their support are local and thus have little if any impact on the show’s revenues.

        “Nobody is losing money here, including us, in all this,” Limbaugh said on his radio show Wednesday. “[The advertisers] are not canceling the business on our stations. They’re just saying they don’t want their spots to appear in my show. We don’t get any revenue from ‘em anyway. The whole effort is to dispirit you.”

        “ABC News, who understands how this works and are purposely misrepresenting it, is out there ballyhooing that we have lost 28 sponsors,” Limbaugh said. “Twenty-eight sponsors out of 18,000! That’s like losing a couple of french fries in the container when it’s delivered to you at the drive-thru. You don’t even notice it.”

        While he would not name companies, Limbaugh said three new sponsors have signed onto his show in the past two weeks.

        “None of what’s happening is out of the ordinary,” Limbaugh said. “It’s just part of an onslaught to try to convince you that this show’s history and our days are numbered. And I’m happy to tell you nothing could be further from the truth

      • DavidL

        Rush Limbaugh deserves everything he is getting. He was wrong and he should man up, sincerely apologize, and stop trying to pass the blame off to someone else. His comments were ignorant, misogynist, and highly offensive. And a majority of the American public condemn his behavior and comments.

        Despite what many of the crazies on the right are propagandizing about, Ms. Fluke was testifying on behalf of a policy for private insurance coverage and not public. Women do pay for their contraception through their premiums and co-pays. To suggest that she was advocating for “welfare” to cover her birth control is irresponsibly uninformed.

        1. leaving it to the private sector has driven costs up faster than any segment of our economy.
        2. The cost of insurance is killing small business and taking consumer monies out of circulation
        3. Our economy depends upon people spending money
        4. There is no solution from the Right other than leave it to the private sector which has failed.
        5. We are the only modernized nation to deny health care to our citizens
        6. E-Room care, the only option if not having insurance, costs up to 5x’s the cost of preventative or early health care.

        If you don’t like the cost of insurance, there’s a simple solution — DON’T buy it! Self-insure — the old fashioned way.
        What Flashman wants to sell you is Government Insurance, where the costs are higher, but people don’t see them and they come from people other than those receiving the benefits (slavery), and eventually the Socialists like Flashman run out of other peoples’ money so we become a pitiful third-world nation. Oh, but the Leaders will still be on top.

      • DaveH

        Flashman says — “Our economy depends upon people spending money”.
        What our economy depends on is Productive Capital Investment which enables companies to produce goods and services cheaply and efficiently, giving the consumers goodies which they could never hope for in a Socialist Society like Flashman and crew are driving us towards. But Big Government sucks that money down it’s black hole at an ever-increasing rate, so instead of it going into Capital Equipment and other productive investments it is wasted by Big Government Politicians who use it to line their own pockets, the pockets of their Crony Capitalists, and to buy votes.

        Flashman says “There is no solution from the Right other than leave it to the private sector which has failed”.
        The private sector has failed? That’s news to me (and to anybody else with half-a-brain).
        All we need do is look at the many Government failures — Post Office, Social Security, Medicare, Amtrak, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, etc. In fact, just about the only thing Government can do better than the private sector is to destroy stuff with their wars.
        It’s pathetic that the Progressives can infiltrate our society, increasingly hobble our economy with massive regulation, rob the productive people blind, and then after the economy necessarily plummets they try to convince the many Ignorant people that it was the fault of the private sector.

        Flashman says — “We are the only modernized nation to deny health care to our citizens”.
        That’s the biggest lie so far. Nobody is denying anybody anything. The medical profession just can’t afford to provide it cheaply because the Government Monkey is riding their backs preventing them from doing things more efficiently with excessive regulations, ridiculous medical malpractice lawsuits, and just plain impoverishing the patients by spending 42% of our GDP which doesn’t leave much for the rest of our wants and needs.

      • DaveH

        The bottom line is that the Leaders are robbing us blind, so that they and their politically connected Cronies can live high at our expense.
        No doubt Flashman feeds at that trough. He works too hard to spread his misinformation to not be benefiting at our expense.

      • Flashy

        Dave…prior to the recent Health Care Reform Act, pray tell what has government done to drive up the costs versus what the private sector would have done.

        Your second contention, those that cannot afford health insurance should be left to fend for themselves…is the current situation. And costs us millions and billions more because we have to subsidize it with the visits to the E-Room when they have no other choice. No preventative care, no prenatal care, no checkups…all add to the costs we have to bear for not providing health care to our Nation. You want to drain our nation’s resources? Feel free to espouse such short sighted lunacy. I’m of the mindset we should increase our talent pool, increase our assets, and begin fighting for our nation as we deal with modern 21st Century nation-States and global competition.

        Your third contention, that people spending $300-500 dollars a month for health insurance, and small businesses being hit with about the same costs…isn’t taking money out of the economic circulation and depressing the economy…is humorous if it wasn’t based on idiocy. If people had that money to spend on consumer items…any sane mind would think it would give a spurt to consumer spending and increase economic activity across the board. And last i heard, buying and selling is what drives our economy.

        you state ‘What our economy depends on is Productive Capital Investment which enables companies to produce goods and services cheaply and efficiently”. OK..and if, as we experience every recession…people don’t buy those goods? which is where you fall flat. Job Creators are not those who have the wealth, the true job creators are the small businesses and people who buy the goods and make the demand. One can make a million widgets…but if there are no buyers out there who will buy the million widgets…inventory and storehouses will soon be filled, economic production slows, jobs lost, and the downward spiral into BK begins.

        your fourth contention that government fails and the list you cite..Post Office, Social Security, Medicare, Amtrak, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, etc… are all areas which are unprofitable for private investment and management, but are needed AND required for a society to enjoy being a unified society. Take the Post Office. there are thousands of small towns facing the closing of their post offices. thousands. And which are not served by private companies such as FedEx and UPS. Are you stating they will be better off without a Postal Service? AMTRAK…you suggest we do without passenger rail service? Fact is, your list are those services which government SHOULD provide to the citizenry in order to be a modern, 21st century nation-state. You cannot point to any successful, unified, cohesive society which does not provide those services to their citizenry. Not one.

        BTW..FNMA and Freddie were private industries before they collapsed in 2008-09.

        now…go away and spew your dribble to those that somehow fall for your fictions…

      • http://gravatar.com/hattles JeffH

        Flashy, try to educate yourself…

        1- Fannie Mae has always been a government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) founded in 1938 during the Great Depression as part of the New Deal.

        2- The Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (FHLMC), known as Freddie Mac (OTCBB: FMCC), is a public government sponsored enterprise (GSE).

        3- The federal takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac refers to the placing into conservatorship of government sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac by the U.S. Treasury in September 2008.

        Before you respond with some assiine arguement…A government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) is a financial services corporation created by the United States Congress.

      • Flashy

        JeffH…yes, they were created by act of Congress, but were publicly traded and privately owned.

        In 2008 they were put in a conservatorship that allows their stock to keep trading but puts common shareholders last in any claims. The Treasury holds “senior preferreds stock” that ranks above both existing preferred and common shares and will carry warrants that gives the government an ownership stake of 80 percent.

        Note three items…one is that the private ownership portion is mainly commericial banks. The other is the “takeover’ occurred under Bush IIs regime. Third is last year President Obama called for a winding down of both FNMA and Freddie Mac … those reforms have been stalled in the House. Which is … controlled by the GOP.

      • http://gravatar.com/hattles JeffH

        Flashy, what part of GSE don’t you understand?

        Because it is “sponsored(GSE)” but not owned by the government, GSE stocks carry higher risk than, say, Treasury securities, which are backed by the full faith and credit of the United States. However, GSEs have an implicit guarantee that the government will not allow them to fail. Indeed, when Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac collapsed in 2008 they almost instantly received federal assistance.

        They can call it whatever they want…political smoke & mirrors is all it is…the Taxpayer has always been on the hook for both Freddie & Fannie because the government created and guaranteed they will not fail and we all know how the government gets their money.

      • DaveH

        Flashman says — “Dave…prior to the recent Health Care Reform Act, pray tell what has government done to drive up the costs versus what the private sector would have done”.
        Duh, Flashman, it’s in the article I posted. Do some reading.

      • DaveH

        Flashman says — “Your second contention, those that cannot afford health insurance should be left to fend for themselves…is the current situation.

        As usual, a load of Bull Dung from Flashman. Why do they go to the E-Room? Because Government has mandated that Hospitals foot the bill (with other peoples’ money of course). No preventive care, no prenatal care, no checkups? That’s how it goes, Flashman, when people don’t take care of themselves. So Flashman’s answer is to burden those who do make the effort to take care of themselves with the care of those who are too lazy to take care of themselves. I’ve been ill since 26, but I have never tried to burden others with my problems. And Flashman has the nerve to talk about draining the nation’s resources when it is he and his Socialist comrades who are doing the draining.
        I won’t call you a lunatic, Flashman (as you called me), because your problem isn’t lunacy, it’s a lack of all moral character. You have proven that repeatedly in your past comments.
        You lie, you advocate theft, you plagiarize other peoples’ work (even when they don’t know what they’re talking about), and you advocate violence towards those who disagree with you. So, I WILL call you a Sociopath, Flashman, because that’s what I believe you are.

      • DaveH

        As usual Flashman must resort to name-calling to make his point (because of course that’s all he has), so I will treat him equally disrespectful, except that in his case he deserves lack of respect. I don’t.
        Flashdunce, what happened to the money that was ‘taken out of circulation’? Did it just disappear? Of course not, dunce — the insurance agents are spending it.
        Now let’s analyze the situation. This will mean nothing to Flashdunce, because he knows better. He is just trying to mislead those poor ignorant souls who don’t know better.
        What happens with private insurance? It is Voluntary, something Flashdunce and his evil minions won’t be offering once they take control.
        I don’t have any. Never have. I take care of myself and if I suffer misfortune, I am quite content to take the hit. I certainly won’t be whining and berating others for not helping me because, unlike Flashdunce, I don’t ride on other peoples’ unwilling shoulders.
        Once Flashdunce and his fellow evil Progressives take control, you can throw Voluntary out the window. If they don’t please you — TOO BAD. You can’t just change plans or stop buying their insurance because you won’t have a choice.
        Does anybody in their right mind think that the new managers of our insurance will have anything to lose if they don’t please you? Unlike private insurance companies, the Government-run insurance companies won’t lose money when people quit putting up with their nonsense. They will just keep on trucking and helping themselves to good citizens’ money.
        You would have to be a mental midget or just plain evil — like Flashdunce — to think that Government will run anything more efficiently than private business, because They Don’t Have To.
        Flashman and his fellow Sociopaths could care less if you suffer eventually as the economy goes further into the tank. And it will. It’s very unlikely that we can turn things around at this point, so the odds are very good that you will witness the collapse of our country. Good Luck. I have a broad background in all aspects of education, so me and my kind will survive one way or the other. But the very poor, who Flashman feigns concern for, are going to suffer the most.

        Here is proof of the Damage that Big Government does to economies. Flashman doesn’t want you thinking about that because he is most likely feeding at the trough and would have to do some legitimate work if enough people wake up and face reality. Look at the countries at the bottom of the list, those with the Biggest Governments. There’s a good chance you’ll be living in one of them before long, And you won’t even have to move:

      • DaveH

        More Flashdunce Ignorance — “OK..and if, as we experience every recession…people don’t buy those goods? which is where you fall flat. Job Creators are not those who have the wealth, the true job creators are the small businesses and people who buy the goods and make the demand. One can make a million widgets…but if there are no buyers out there who will buy the million widgets…inventory and storehouses will soon be filled, economic production slows, jobs lost, and the downward spiral into BK begins”.
        Recessions are caused by people not buying goods? That is the dumbest thing I’ve heard yet. If so, then all we need to do is spend MORE money that we DON’T have and all will be okay — NOT!
        Recessions are the result of financial mal-investment encouraged by easy money (credit) from the Federal Reserve and their member banks. Do this test to get a clue — Give money to a child, and allow them to spend it on whatever they want. Another time do the same thing, except make the child work for the money, and you’ll see that they are much more careful with their money if they have to work for it. Businesses are the same way. They are just human. So when the Federal Reserve increases the money supply and excess money hits the economy, the businessmen invest recklessly in goals that really aren’t sustainable and then eventually fall on their faces. At about that same time, due to decreased productivity (from the mal-investment) and resulting higher-priced products, the Federal Reserve must put the brakes on the money supply or risk run-away inflation. That causes the economy to collapse.
        Since the Federal Reserve has been created (1913) the value of our dollars have decreased dramatically (to 1/20th of their 1913 value). In fact, if we had sound money, and due to the increases in productivity over the last 100 years, the value of the dollar should have Increased NOT Decreased. We would be able to buy more with our money, NOT LESS. And of course we can’t forget the dramatic amount of money that Government people are draining from our economy (42% of our GDP).
        Don’t let evil people like Flashman take advantage of you. Study Economics (preferably from real Economists like those at Mises Institute) and learn what’s really going on.

        I am constantly surprised of the readers and I guess what is now called “conservatives”.
        It’s obvious that you didn’t hear, or read Ms. Fluke’s testimony. Had you, you would have realized that she was speaking on behalf of women, (which the republican’s wouldn’t allow a woman on the panel, which is a laugh), and that medication in “the pill” also treats ovarian cysts and other “woman” issues. I guess you’re a slut or any other male who takes viagra. WHICH is covered in your medical plan. I understand now, why all the studies that are done at university’s show that conservatives are less erudite, lack high education and more are less lemmings. You can’t debate without getting angry and most of your pundits, like Rush, well to be fair, he does have a GED, because he dropped out of High School, are less educated and therefore hate change and progress. The left isn’t always correct and neither is the right. Thank god independents are becoming the largest segment of the voting public. And if the media were 100%, you wouldn’t have News Corp. Talk about “the left”. The left/Bush were the ones that came up with the “patriot act”. Read it. It take more of your constitutional rights away than any other law.

    • CJ

      Liberals will ALWAYS use duel standards. Rush has never caved under that concept to not call something for what it is. And as long as liberals keep redefining everything to suite their desire, but get offended when others use the original definition, the sheeple keep defending them with cowardly excuses. Without extrem comments like Rush makes ot bring the attention of the distructive liberal agenda, the US would have failed to exist long ago.

      I don’t care, I still wouldn’t buy a used car from Wayne, he just has this nausiating salesman thing goin’ on and I just don’t cotton to it! If he wants to whine about paying all the taxes, he should whine to the 1% who sent all of our blue collar middle class jobs overseas where they could pad their portfolios with the boondoggle of $14 a day labor. Now all the countries where we sent those jobs have become our lenders! And they HATE our guts!!!
      The reason we became the most powerful and wealthiest nation this world has ever seen is because we were totally self-sufficient. There was nothing that we needed that wasn’t made right here in the Land of the Brave and the Home of the Free!!! Now all those jobs have been sent overseas and the bean counters are whining because they see that their days are numbered also! Did they think that Beijing was going to let them count the beans forever?!! Duhhh! WAKE UP!!! If you are serious about wanting to see us climb back to the top of the ladder, then stop buying products made in countries where workers are treated worse than farm animals! These products should not even be allowed to be sold in this country!!! Buy everything, as much as possible, that is made right here in the good ole’ USA! The elites in this country don’t want that because it is polluting where they live, they should be sent overseas with the jobs!!! We became stingy with the American dream, freedom is a GOD GIVEN right and WE should be trying to help the rest of the oppressed peoples of our world come to know the same blessing, not supporting some ruthless dictator who oppresses their people for the simple fact that they serve our greedy self-interests!!! Do you hear me Hamid?!!
      Does anyone think that ALL this man-made turmoil and ALL the natural disasters that are plaguing our planet are ALL happening at the same time by coinsidence?!!

        No, Tom, the reason we became the most powerful (not that that’s something to aspire to) and wealthiest nation in this world was because we were the Freest country in the world at one time. International Free trade (real Free Trade, not Nafta or the others) benefits everybody except the Political Entrepreneurs who can achieve Prosperity more easily by buying their favorite Politicians than by competing in Free Markets against the Market Entrepreneurs. But even those Capitalists (Crony Capitalists) who have chosen to succeed the Political way, can get nowhere without their Crony Politicians who use their powers of Force to protect them from Competition. And those of you who cry out for trade isolation only encourage that condition by enabling Government to grow larger (it takes Big Government to enforce all those rules). As Government Grows, Corruption Flows.

        So if you’re really concerned about the “1%”, Tom, you need to do some studying and learn what the real problems are, and who the “1%” really are:

      The problem with Rush’s comment(s) is when you put them together with all of the other things elected officials on the right have been doing to erode women’s rights since they won the majority in the Houuse and in statehouses accross the country, what Rush said was the proverbial last straw. Republicans have seemingly done everything they could to energize the left in a year when the left was less than enthusiastic about President Obama’s performance. When you consider that with the less than stellar field they have for their presidential nomination, they will probably give Democrats control of the House again as well as help Democrats maintain the White House and the Senate.

        TOCB,

        Don’t be misled. The liberal left propaganda machine will distort or make-up anything they want in order to keep their minions brainwashed sufficiently to do whatever they want them to do or think. Republicans certainly aren’t perfect, and do say things from time to time they shouldn’t, but even if they didn’t that wouldn’t stop the left from creating any story they want to promote their immoral agendas.

      • Vigilant

        Tom, I don’t think the Conservatives condone Rush’s statements. I’ve seen a number of disussions where the Right has found fault with Rush, but the focus has been on the hypocrisy of the left in not condemning Maher, Schultz and others for remarks much more inflammatory than Rush’s.

        Rush at least apologized, something you’ll never hear from that misogynist Maher.

Great, just what this country needs, another drug addict in the White House who didn’t inhale and didn’t get “sent up” and who obviously thinks the law applies to plebeians and not the powerful, politically connected, rich and famous people such as himself. Of course Newt the Philanderer and Violator of Congressional Ethics (Congressional Ethics? What an oxymoron!) is available in his stead. If only Ron had been able to lead the GOP to its more conservative and historical roots, we might have avoided conversations like this.

    He does have a point..3K a year for contraception??That sure is a lot of “activity”.However,enough is enough and it really is time to move on.It does seem noteworthy though, all the hate spewed from the left esp. against Sarah Palin that goes unnoticed.

    • Bev

      It’s not just hate speech against Palin. The left had the audacity to make a movie full of inaccuracies and not once consulted Palin on any of the content. Not only that, but they also criticize her for having a Down’s Syndrome child and daughter who had a child out of wedlock. It just goes on and on about Sarah.

      I did think it was kind of weird however that there was not women on the “so-called” panel to discuss free contraception. It just show that Washington is ruled by the ‘good old boy’ system.

        According to the people who tried to vet Palin, and worked to prepare her for the campaign, the movie was wickedly accurate. They were there, and they should know.
        Palin was repeated asked to contribute and consult on the film, but steadfastly refused.
        Perhaps more facts and less conjecture would elevate the arguement above mudslinging.

        Bev…the only one stating the movie was “inaccurate’ is Palin. McCain has some issues with how he was portrayed, but notice he didn’t state anything about how Palin was portrayed.

      • Flashy

        Tom..thank you for recognizing the facts of superiority.

        You may want to think of the difference between a public persona who aims for publicity and is attacked as a public person by another public person…and a private person whose only “crime” was wanting to testify before a Congressional Committee who stacked the witness list excluding any position other than the one they wanted

    • http://ravenscalm.wordpress.com ravenscalm

      Because Rush berated a private citizen, not a public figure. Andhe did it for three straight daysm not just a one time throwaway insult.
      A public figure can expect to be roasted, especially by Rush. A private citizen should be exempt from political bullying.

        ravenscalm says, “A private citizen should be exempt from political bullying.”

        Wow! I guess you missed it…The real bully is Big Government. They’ve been bullying the private citizen for well over 150 years and Obama has elevated his status as the current top bully.

        The government in the Age of Obama has gone beyond the big brother that watches out and cares for us. Instead, it has becomes the big brother that torments and bullies us and then takes what is rightfully ours: our savings, our freedom, and our futures.

        A bully has other desires. A bully cares only about himself and his own greedy will to power. A bully taunts and threatens. A bully holds others in contempt. A bully disregards not only the wishes of those around him, but also the rules that may restrain his power. A bully takes what is not his.

        Very early in 2009, the troika of Pelosi-Reid-Obama sought to expand the power of the federal government over states, businesses, and us. They all but nationalized the American auto industry (save Ford), overriding debtor rights and decades of law. They have also taken over chunks of the financial industry and, via their control over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, much of the housing industry. Many salaries will be set by the White House. Education, a local matter, is increasingly becoming a federal one. The student loan industry has also been brought in-house — the White House, that is. That was merely a warm-up.

        The smash-and-grab style of governing has since run rampant: rules, regulations, taxes, and mandates; the proliferation of unelected czars; the orders and commands; the abuse of power; the diktats-all stuffed down our throats.

        There is so much more to add…read this for the whole picture.

        As soon as she got up in public, she became a public person. If she were at home, discussing her views, no one would be talking about her. She would be a private citizen. She’s an activist. She willingly allowed herself to be used by the left to further their agenda. She CHOSE to be a public spectacle!

    As an American residing abroad, I can tell you that Rush Limbaugh is an embarrassment.

    • securityman

      What is ,or should be, embarassing ,is someone who won’t even live in their own country and yet want to tell other people how to live in that country. If you want to have your say, say it in and about the place ” you have chosen” to live in. We are still here toughing it out…….

      Not too me. If the truth embarrasses you, go stick your head in the sand.

    • CJ

      The only embarrassment should be when an American goes to another country and makes negative comments about America to the OTHER COUNTRY (like some president has recently done). If we comment about our own house’s disorder within the house, it’s none of their business.

    • Bruce Belligan

      American’s shouldn’t be judging themselves by European Standards.
      Europe was the reason this country became founded.
      To not think or be like that.
      However, was and isn’t nice that Europe look downs it ignorant snobbery perch,
      yet reap the benefit of most of the first pay off of the first “stimulus package.”
      America and Americans should be judging itself… and not by European standards with all the problems that they have with high taxes, riots and unrest.

        And they’re getting ready to go down the ole’ economic drain and because we were foolish enough to get tied to this GLOBAL (See Rev. 13:16-18) economy, we’re going right down with them!!!

      • Flashy

        Tom…you want to know where this country would be had we followed the ‘advice’ of the Right when the economy collapsed in cutting budgets, emphasizing austerity, and practicing the so-called “fiscal responsibility’ advice from the TP and far Right? You need to look no further than Europe.

        Europe chose that path, where President Obama chose to emphasize targeted spending, subsidizing our main industries by extending credit when no credit was available in the private market, and concentrating on getting the economy in shape before the deficits are attacked.

        The results? Europe is flopping around like a gaffed salmon on the deck, and we’re coming out of the worst recession since the Depression, a recession which would have been a Depression but for the fiscal policies of this administration.

        - Obama said, “A comrade of yours, Jared Monti, was the first person who I was able to award the Medal of Honor to who actually came back and wasn’t receiving it posthumously.” Wrong hero. Sgt. 1st Class Jared Monti was killed in action, another soldier, Staff Sgt. Sal Giunta, was the first living recipient of the Medal of Honor that fought in Afghanistan.
        - During a trip to London’s Westminster Abbey, President Obama signed the guest book and dated it 24 May 2008. Oops. It was 2011

  • chris

    I am a conservative republican, and I think Rush is a piece of trash. He is also clearly not a conservative. I don’t know if the liberal media has gone too far in their response to his actions, but I can say that his neoconservative viewpoints are yesterdays news. The new movement is clearly constitution and liberty based. It is time for him to go.

    • CJ

      Sounds like the liberal brainwashing is working on you. You apparantly don’t know the definition of ‘conservative.’ But to criticize someone for useing a word for it’s proper definition is standard liberal policy if it brings attention.

    • DonnieB

      Chris, I’d like you to point to some action or conversation from Rush that proves that he is not conservative. Calling a woman a slut because the woman herself claims to do all the things that sluts do, is not anti-Conservative. It is the truth,; something that the Liberals have a difficult time dealing with.

      Tell me are your taxes lower?
      Are jobs plentiful?
      Do we have a legal system that represents Constitutional laws?
      Is there really freedom of press to be the “check” and balance to powers of government?
      Are our borders safer?
      Does Life, the core foundation as a human species survival really cherished?
      Is their really personal Religious Freedom Rights to Foundation?
      If you don’t know what an occult is…then look up the term.
      Or is Religious Fondation under assault now too?
      What happen to the 3 branches of government for checks and balance of power grabs?
      Since when does does this government have the right to own businesses like Banks, Automotive, Health, Energy, Educational to now mandate Religious business?

      All the while, in sighting all this ignorant arguing of only debates.
      While the The American Constitution is slowly but surely slipping away right under your noses. Good Ol’ Conquer to Divide her, which seems to be working to me.

      Really ask yourself, look around, travel and see the tired American towns,
      worn out paint on houses and shutters. Abandon factories, industry as ghost towns under lock and cains with tufts of grass breaking through concrete and black tops. Do college students have jobs? Are our children really protected for the futures that they face?
      Are all theses faces….”United”… as in the United States?
      Or,does it look tired, beat and worn down to you as it does to me?

      To think all of you….and all this wasted argument…that falls to sex!
      Really does it matter?
      When it needs to be in the responsible actions of one’s own private bed behaviors.

Then Conservative Oklahoma,Mississippi,Arkansas,Louisiana,Alaska,North Dakota,(then Dem W. Virginia) and continues to Conservative Kentucky and Texas. Now California came next but it must be the Conservative Southern half that wants to succeed from the State! Then comes toss up state Florida. The lowest in wanting out of marriage sexual desires comes Vermont a Democrat state. It’s going to be somewhat funny when Santorum’s vice squad makes all these arrests in Red States and Conservatives have to do his perp walk! A new reality show Sexual Deviants Most Wanted!!

      Its a fact of life and all the whining will never change it.. The technology is here to stay. Nothing that a simple piece of metallic window screen tucked in between the outside fake leather or plastic and the inside of your wallet can’t block. Instead crying about something that is already here and was pushed by both political parties and making a fuss about it, try to learn about it and how much of the danger is real and how much is nothing but pure hype. Those are passive devices with real small antennas and need an energy field to be read and that means there is no “remote” reading possibility, someone has to be very close to you or single you out with a large directional antenna, something you would see and something that is very hard to do if you are moving around. A simple sheet of metal screen or metallic cloth has enough attenuation to prevent reading of any info even up close. I have worked in this field for 4 years and keep up to date with the new development simply because I want to know what to do to prevent strangers from having access to my data. Gosh, these days one can buy wallets that have a metallic screen build in so where is the problem? Turn your energies to prevent new technology being implemented or prevent the eternal liars in politics from passing even more laws and rules… but for gawd sakes stop whining over something that was implemented 15+ years ago.

      Awesome post Wolfie! Good lookin’ out!!! There’s a copany in Delray Beach, FL called Digital Angel, (Yeah that’s right, Angel) they specialize in making IMPLANTABLE RFID chips and when they first started putting them in seniors at the assisted living (How’s that for political correctivness?!) homes in the area, they said that a lot of these seniors suffered from Alzheimer’s and that if they wandered away from the facillity that these chips would make it easier to locate them. At the SAME time GE was going around the country and equipping ALL of our hospitals with the devices to read these chips! WAKE UP AMERICA!!! Get your head out of the freakin’ sand!
      When Speaker Pelosi said,“ We have to pass the bill, to see what’s in the bill.“ Now what in the hell kind of sense does that make?!

Tucked away in the Health Care Bill! Google-HR3200, click on HR 3200 IH PDF, scroll down to sec.2521 National Medical Device Registry, almost the bottom of the page. Mandating the implantation of an RFID chip into every U.S. citizen seeking medical attention within 36 months of implementation of the bill. Read it with your own two eyes!

  • http://www.ifonlyphotos.com Alex Frazier

    I think Rush’s comments were tasteless, but close to the mark. It was entirely unnecessary for him to have called her a slut. It perpetuates the ridiculous double standard between men and women when it comes to sex.

    BUT, sex has only two purposes – children and pleasure. If you are trying to remove children from the list of selections, then you intend your sex for pleasure only. And if your goal is sex for pleasure, no one should have to pay for it but yourself. IF you’re spending $3K a year on your sex for pleasure, then you are especially active. If you don’t have a steady, monogamous partner, then you are a slut (or a womanizer).

    So Rush isn’t really wrong. But it wasn’t really needful for him to be so rude, particularly since he was directing it at a specific individual. If I were the woman, I would personally sue him for defamation of character, since Rush can’t prove her personal level of sexual activity. His slander did, after all, reach international recognition. And the woman is being called a slut on forums across the nation. If that’s not a case for defamation of character, I don’t know what is.

    He should thank his lucky stars that the loss of advertisers is all he’s had to deal with. The woman is obviously an activist. How many of us have testified before congress on an issue close to our own hearts? And besides that, she’s studying to be a lawyer. That’s a dangerous animal he’s backing into the corner.

    • Bruce Belligan

      She never testified before congress. That “testimony” was staged by pelosi and her drones.

      • http://www.ifonlyphotos.com Alex Frazier

        If you have reliable source information of that, I’m happy to check it out. I’m easy. But until you give me a little proof, the news showed her testifying before a congressional committee.

    • Tom W.

      VERY well said Alex! But isn’t there a more offensive term for a male slut than womanizer?!! Rush is tasteless and crude, what does that say about his audience?! They’re no better than the lefties, who think Bill Maher is such a comedic genius! But as long as there’s an audience for such, it shall always be!!! The market is a truly American enterprise and will correct itself depending on the market for said product. As long as there is a demand for anything, that thing will always exist no matter whether or not it is a good or a bad thing, it makes MONEY! Truly our American god.
      As William Shakespeare so eloquently noted, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorn!” (He didn’t have a clue!) A female lawyer, now that’s a whole different animal!!! LOOK OUT! Hide your wallet, we’re in very unsafe waters! Now I know I sound like an old fuddy duddy, but I truly believe that sex is a GOD GIVEN gift to men and women who are joined in Holy Matrimony! It is the abuse of this SACRED gift that is the biggest problem we face as a global society today. Anyone who engages in illicid sexual relations is NOT ready for the consequences that can result! And a college student needs to be engulfed in their school work and not be concerned with trying to be the next Linda Lovelace or John Holmes!
      It’s all just signs of the times that we’re living in, JESUS IS COMING! You’d BETTER get ready!!!

      • http://www.ifonlyphotos.com Alex Frazier

        I can’t think of many terms for a male slut that don’t seem to glorify the behavior in some way. They can be called womanizers, libertines, debauchers, playboys … but none of those have the same punch as “dirty whore.”

    Your all being Used / Played. This event is to cover whats going on somewhere else, what might that be?
    There is no D v R, they have the same goals, so why is it that the only ones who can’t seem to get that is the American Population. Why is that again? Snap out of it!
    Stop being a TOOL / FOOL for the NWO.

    Who cares how much sex anyone has. The whole bloody thing is a BS story from start to finish its “100% controlled mass media hype to inflame.”
    Will you all PLEASE wake up to that fact. The mass media is all 100% totaly owned and 100% totaly controled this is not rocket science.

      This blog was probably put here by the powers that be, too. They planted mind control micro chips in Bob’s brain to make him create this site so we will all be distracted while the government implements its real agenda … the expansion of alien species that are replicating our bodies and replacing us one individual at a time … all while we argue over what we think they’re doing!

      Brother, not everything that you see happening in the world or in the country is part of a conspiracy to hide the truth of what the government is doing. You have to be reasonable. If you talk that sort of nonsense too often, people will think you’re crazy, and then they’ll never listen to you, even when you’re right.

And why should we pay for her fun. It is her responsibility not ours. I also love Sarah Palin and she is not a c word. Wake up and help us save our country. Join the tea party.

      • Karolyn

        IF YOU PEOPLE WOULD JUST READ OR WATCH TO SEE WHAT SHE SAID, YOU WOULD SEE THAT SHE SAID NOTHING ABOUT HER SEX LIFE!!!!!!! Which, of course, would indicate that there was no reason to call her a slut. Limbauch probably didn’t listen to or read it either.

But the demonrats didn’t give up. They “faked” and televised a hearing that was not a legitimate.

    Limbaugh’s program doesn’t share any of the ‘qualities’ that make utopian programs what they are. Frankly, I don’t care if Limbaugh is a conservative or a fakir. At least he’s not afraid of the TRUTH.

        Oh Karolyn, please. . . they always manage to work around the truth or twist it to their hearts desire. You know that, all you have to do is pay attention to what they say. It shows itself quite easily most of the time. Examples have been posted here time after time.

      • Karolyn

        Whose truth, Sirian? Do you ever consider ANYTHING a liberal has to say as POSSIBLY having some truth to it? I don’t agree with everything liberals have to say, just like I don’t disagree with everything conservatives have to say, but I do consider it. The truths that I live by are thought by many to be crazy; however, I believe them; and that’s all that counts. When it comes to truth (or anything), “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink.”

      • Sirian

        Quite often Karolyn, quite often. And at times I may very well agree with them. But here’s the problem – liberals, those that are openly the main voices that everyone is constantly listening to, blindly following, are, as said previously, cleverly work around the truth pertaining to one subject or another whatever may be the main issue at any given time. From the same they take bits and pieces of the truth and twist them into or along the line that they are striving for. From this it enables them to degrade anyone of opposite thought or political stance. This tactic/method has been in use by liberals/extremists for decades. If you were to scour over the propaganda that was used during the Wilson years, Hitler, Stalin etc. you will find the very same form of “truth twisting”. During the FDR years, there too was a tremendous amount of sidestepping the truth or twisting it to fit the problem at hand. Read “The Roosevelt Myth”, http://mises.org/literature.aspx?action=search&q=The%20Roosevelt%20Myth it will show you quite clearly as to how this was carried out. Saul Alinsky is historically notorious for doing the very same. Alinskyites, Socialists, Communists, Islamic fascists followers alike have been and continue to use this method on a much more intensive level today. Again, a very common method/tactic that so many liberals employ on a daily basis. But believe it or not I will agree with you on one thing – You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink – that is quite true. So, cheerfully I do agree with you on that. . . :)

The lack of civility on the forum sounds like a bunch of high school mean girls vs the nerds. Just because you have a certain political view doesn’t make you right or superior. Remember how we pulled together right after 9/11 and actually acted like Americans. Let’s respectively disagree with one another without being so damn disagreeable.

    Rush Limbaugh said what he said and will have to take responsibility for his own words, in whatever capacity that will be, as we all do with what we say.

    Regarding Sandra Fluke and contraception: The issue is a much bigger one than someone wanting to have sex and someone else paying for a contraception. It’s not about sex, it’s a health issue. 58% of American women taking birth control pills who use them, for purposes other than pregnancy prevention, including reducing ovarian cancer by more than 70 percent, reducing cramps or menstrual pain, regulating their periods, reducing acne and treating Endometriosis, a condition in which uterine-lining tissue grows in other pelvic areas, can lead to scarring, severe pain, and sometimes infertility. The Pill stops the growth of tissue in other areas by reducing the hormones that cause the lining to build up. About 14% of pill users — or 1.5 million women — rely on the medication exclusively for non-contraceptive purposes.

    And about the “Morning After Pill” or as some people call it “The Abortion Pill”, it’s actually the same medication as in a birth control pill, it’s just a very large dose.

    It’s amazing what happens when you educated yourself on an issue. You sound like you know what you’re talking about. Cool, huh?

      Jon,

      You are completely missing the point and the big picture, nobody is arguing to eliminate these things, it is who plays for it. The larger issue is that if you submit to this logic than almost everything is a health issue, what you eat, drink, your gym membership, etc., etc. Once this logic becomes mainsteam then we are completely lost, your freedom & liberty will be gone, surely you can see this, no? I believe that we have evolved past this issue, there are so many more important issues that we need to be discussing. We are on the brink of losing everything and we have been thrown into the gutter by our political hacks and establishment types. Lets’ dig deep together!

      You say “58% of American women taking birth control pills use them, for purposes other than pregnancy prevention.” You may well be correct, but Georgetown’s medical plan for students covers whatever medication a student’s doctor prescribes for health problems. Miss Fluke was lying when she claimed Georgetown students with such problems did not have such coverage.

      • Eddie47DD

        “Miss Fluke was lying when she claimed Georgetown students with such problems did not have such coverage.”

        Exactly right MOS.

This could not be more clear now during this primary process. We the People need to find the will & light within ourselves, understand the battle we are in and do what is Right to reverse course for future generations. This will be done using the power within ourselves and our pure numbers, the work started in 2010, lets’ overwhelm the system in 2012. Stay in the fight as long as it will take, I want to be part of the 2nd American Revolution (clear the swamp), never thought this would happen in my lifetime, the Will of the People will prevail.

    Let’s call a spade a spade. Rush does what he does for one thing – Rush. Whatever makes him money. As he told Larry King in 2004, if the money was in liberal talk radio, he’d be doing liberal talk radio.
    It’s pseuod-conservative talking heads like Rush that has made it near impossible for us to carry on a rational, intelligence-driven conversation about what matters most to us. He’s given us hate speech and fueled the pseudo-rightious anger among his dunderhead followers who must tune in dayly to get their adrenaline fix. Probably the only real stimulation in their otherwise mundane lives.
    Liberal talk radio will never do as well as conservative talk radio because it’s not as gutter-ugly and doesn’t stir the soul like the name-calling and character assasination that is the hallmark of these fake conservatives.
    Sometimes Rush gets it right, but mostly what he offers is garbage. Sadly, too many pass his abysmal behavior off as motivated by the need to help his fellow human beings other than what he’s really doing, which is making a buck feeding the dunderheads what they want to hear, irregardless of the truth.

      The truth is, we are all victims at one time or another but it’s how you react to it that determines the quality of your life.

      Quality of life is an illusive thing, hard to capture, hard to frame in just a few words.

      I don’t know with any certainly the quality of life that Rush “followers” enjoys but it stands to reason it could not be all that great. How could it? Happiness and peace of mind is something to pursue, I don’t see them working in some constructive way to achieve such ambitions but just the contrary.

    Well Wayne,

    You do a great job of sounding just like Rush the pig. His biggest problem with this issue is that he doesn’t act like a gentleman with respect to women. This issue has taken on a life of its own and need not have done so.

    If Rush was as intelligent as he would like his audience to believe he would never have stooped to the level of name calling. Just shows the public that he is truly the school drop out he has told people he was.

    I too was a female law student some year past and didn’t ask for hand outs from anyone. I paid my own way and never was a penny behind. If she was having all the sex that Rush believes she is, she couldn’t pass her finals.

    The Rush Limbaugh story is not about Right and Left. It is about the sustained drive of both “entertainment” and “commentary” down to the lowest possible level of intelligence and civility. He is the poster-child for arrogant, irresponsible, verbal bullying that has no boundaries. It titillates the insecure, frightened, and angry folks who are looking for something to kick. There are entire radio and television and newspaper conglomerates that are dedicated to pushing whatever will fill their pockets and increase the power of their owners to influence the public debate as they see fit. The rest of the story is about the archaic white-male insistence that they are the ones who will decide what is best for women, for their health and for their sex lives. Some of us will stand up for civility and for women and for minorities of all types. And today, it looks like there are advertisers who have decided that they might do that as well. Sorry about that.

My job here on earth is to assist people in any way I can, and adding to the hatred and anger that is already present, doesn’t help anyone. If you would take an objective look, you would see that I receive hateful, stupid responses no matter what I post, even if is a logical statement. What does that tell you? It tells me that conservatives close their ears to those they do not side with no matter what they have to say, although I must say, when I have agreed with posts, there has been the occasional response from the more open-minded of you who actually think about what they post before putting finger to key.

        That may very well be true, Jay. Look at all the charities in this country like the American Cancer Society who are greedy. However, they are being instrumental in bringing knowledge of these horrendous crimes more into the open. According to the video, they want to make sure our government does not forget and keeps the pressure on. That’s the bottom line here, and Limbaugh is still an A**Hole for saying that our people are in Uganda to kill Christians. It seems to me he has gotten to the point where he thinks he is a God because of all those who worship at his altar, and he can say anything he wants to rouse the rabble.

        You’re welcome, Karolyn, i’m happy to be of assistance!

      • Karolyn

        Jay, I should have known to place a caveat in my post. Limbaugh is a public figure, which differentiates him from “normal” people, such as those who post on this list. I think it would be hard to find someone who does not call certain public figures any number of names. I certainly would dare you to find where I have ever called anyone posting here an a**hole or an idiot. Idiot is the noun of choice for many here. My point is, and has always been, that there is no reason for such animosity due to someone being of an opposite opinion. He who loses his cool loses the argument.

        Jay, that’s what I find most interesting about liberals, Karolyn included, they (almost)always have an excuse for their hypocrisy…as my pop always used to say, “excuses are for losers” and it seems that the liberals(independent thinkers?) tend to make a lot of excuses for their “insert foot in mouth” comments.

        I tried to listen to Rush yesterday and today on my lunch hour going home. I just cannot stand his ranting and raving, the fingertapping, the grunting, sighing. Too nutty for me.

        Birth control? Every man and woman is responsible for themselves, not the government, not the taxpayer. If a person digs a hole for himself/herself, than let them deal with it. I don’t have the time nor the patience to deal with it. Not anymore.
        I am sick and tired of the crap that is going on. Look at the Republican candidates. Which one will be the best choice? I say none of them. Ron Paul doesn’t stand the chance of a snowball in you know where. The Republican party has done a good job keeping him out of the picture. As far as I am concerned, things will not get any better.

    Ms Flute choose to go to not only a Catholic University, BUT a Jesuit University, which I am a former student of. If she didn’t know the precepts of the Church, she should have read up on them. She and only she also chose to put herself in the limelight, on Public TV and discuss hepersonal life. In my day a proper young lady didn’t do this and as a Catholic I will stand by my church and it’s tenets, as for the 5 of Catholics who do use birth control, that is between them, their conscience and their priest, and only God will judge in finality. I also believe in the Constitution and if we weaken one admendment,ie: 1st, then how long before the others are weakened and we become like Soviet Russia??

    • Jay

      Jeanne, Ms. Fluke knew exactly what she was doing, where she was going, and why!

      In fact,
      Sandra Fluke is also the past president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice.

      Sandra Fluke was initially described as a Georgetown law student. It was then revealed that prior to attending Georgetown she was an active women’s right advocate.

      In one of her first interviews she is quoted as talking about how she reviewed Georgetown’s insurance policy prior to committing to attend, and seeing that it didn’t cover contraceptive services, she decided to attend with the express purpose of battling this policy.

      During this time, she was described as a 23-year-old coed. Magically, at the same time Congress is debating the forced coverage of contraception, she appears and is even brought to Capitol Hill to testify.

      In an interview with Matt Lauer on the Today show, it was revealed that she is 30 years old, NOT the 23 that had been reported all along.

      In other words, folks, you are being played. She has been an activist all along and the Dems were just waiting for the appropriate time to play her.

      This was all just a big dishonest Democrat ploy to take the attention off of Barack Obama’s assault on religious freedom.

    Hermy,

    What’s an air-headed liberal like you doing on a conservative site like this? Rush has more brains in his pinky finger than you have in your whole worthless libtard body. Moreover, Rush doesn’t lie, or you would have cited examples. But, like most libdards, you cannot deal in facts, but merely hurl vicious invective. That’s all of which you are capable, being a libtard. You need a shrink because liberalism is a mental disorder and you have shown us how just much you are in need of counseling.

    I find the Limbaugh incident enormously revealing. The left routinely engages in obscene and gratuitous character assassination of those with whom it disagrees, but when one conservative commentator steps beyond the bounds of propriety, they go ballistic and try to paint the entire movement with the same brush. It’s so transparently hypocritical. At least Rush was focused on Ms. Fluke’s arguments for $3,000 in free contraceptives during her college years. He might have called her promiscuous, or a defender of promiscuity and ridiculed her absurd demand for free pills, and force a religious institution to change its moral guidelines to suit her promiscuity. However, he lowered himself by using language that the left uses routinely. For this he has apologized. But this not enough for the rabid left because they are followers, whether they know it or not, of the ideas of Herbert Marcuse, the late Marxist ideologue who rejected free speech on the grounds that it privileges the dominant class. In his mind, only the left wing minority should have free speech. It’s free speech for me, but not for thee. It’s just one example of the loony ideas that have traction on the left.

  • Kenny

    We have to realize that the whole Sandra Fluke incident was a calculated plan by Obama and his minions to turn his attack on the First Amendment freedom oif religion into a Republican or conervative or tea party “war on women” for political gain. It is so pathetical ludicrous, but part and parcel of the irrational mindset that is contempirary liberalism. It also FAILED. The American peole are smarter than that.

  • Realist

    I don’t listen to rush anymore and haven’t for years. I guess when he started defending the rich for not paying the same rate of taxes as the working middle class, that turned me off. And before you try to chime in about the very wealthy paying over 50 percent of the taxes, consider this: the top 5 percent of citizens own 95percent of the wealth so it figures, that they should be taxed accordingly!

    • Raggs

        Raggs, maybe this will help. Rich people pay more because they make more. Given two people with the same tax rate 25%, one taxable income 1 million the other 100 thousand. The first will pay 250,000 in taxes and the second 25,000. The rich person pays more because he makes more. Total revenue is 275,000 and the rich person portion would be 90.9%. Rich people pay more in taxes because of math not because they are singled out.

    What’s the problem here ? Rush Limbaugh chose to lie about what Sandra Fluke
    actually said, and chose to personally attack her and call her vile names.

    Wether Mr. Root want’s to accept it or not. Very often there are consequences
    when people lie, and personally attack other people. And in this case, there
    were consequences to Rush’s actions.

    So Wayne Allyn Root has chosen to ignore the facts in this case
    and has instead decided to go on the attack himself, and try to paint anyone and everyone who doesn’t agree with him or Rush Limbaugh’s brand of hate radio with a broad brush. Instead of standing up like a man and acknowledging that Rush was wrong to do what he did.

    Personally I have a real hard time believing that Mr. Root was a presidential nominee.
    A right wing mouth piece on a talk radio show maybe, but a nominee ? No…. not worthy.
    Not even close to being worthy.

        There are consequences to him lying as well.

        But I can’t say as I’ve heard him personally attack anyone using vile language.

      • Raggs

        Oh come on please…

        So why did king oblama call the radio station?

All of this name calling from this person or that person is what it is. Did you all ever grow up or are we all children still. I was taught as a child that “Sticks and stone may break your bones, but words shall never hurt me.” STOP ALL OF THIS FIRING BACK AND FORTH ABOUT WORDS FROM RUSH, HE IS WHAT HE CLAIMS TO BE A RADIO TALK SHOW HOST WITH HIS OWN OPINION. He has worked his way to a national talk show host because people like what they are hearing. Think about it. Right now we as a country shoud be thinking about saving our county for future generations rather that thinking of how to distroy an american that has actually aquired the american dream.

    WOW!
    I’ve read some of Mr. Root’s columns before, but this is the first time I’ve watched one of his videos. It’s also the last I am likely to bother with. What a load. First off, “progressive” drive time radio has done quite well in many markets across the nation, but you wouldn’t know it to listen to the right. Perhaps this is, in part is due to the actions of companies like Mr. Romny’s Bain Capitol, the owners of Clear Channel radio. At the beginning of this year, this ELECTION YEAR they dumped one of the most successful morning drive shows in the San Francisco bay area and replaced it with Glen Beck. By Mr. Root’s logic this would suggest that only conservatives “work” in the San Francisco bay area, that bastion of Conservative thinkers. Further it would suggest that having a progressive station was a money looser, but the numbers show that to be false. Even if you wanted to make the argument that drive time is conservative time, the strongest Republican county in the bay area has less than 30% of the population, making it hard to believe that those congested freeways are filled with conservatives.

    Further eroding Mr. Roots assumptions is the fact that the show in question, the legendary Rush Limbaugh show does not run during drive time. In fact, Rush’s success is often linked to the fact that he is able to bring in listeners during what is normally one of radios weakest time slots! It begs the question, who is listening? We know he has a huge audience, but how many people are on the road from 12 to 3? How many people can listen in the office? I used to listen in the store I managed, until we had enough complaints that I had to turn it off. Of course there are some businesses that would not have this problem, and there are truckers and farmers. Statistics show Limbaugh’s audience to be largely made up of conservative men over the age of 50, so we could be talking about retirees and the unemployed who would be home during these hours?

    Mr. Root has done a lot in this one piece to help me understand why Libertarians have not done better in politics. Like Rush he offers up inflammatory generalizations about Liberals sitting home collecting social security as the norm while ignoring the scores of “conservatives” who rail against the government while collecting food stamps. He stands side by side with the TEA Party activists as they shout “keep your government out of my MediCare!” He seems to me to be just one more wealthy talking head trying to convince us that doing what is best for his (and his backers) bottom line is what’s best for us all, no matter what it costs us.

    The things Rush said were pretty stupid and over the top. I thought he would have gotten away with it as just another comment in bad taste. Most commentators are guilty of that from time to time and Rush’s wouldn’t have been a big deal if he hadn’t made his last statement.

    When he proposed a deal with the Fluke woman that he would pay for her sex if she would videotape her sexual activity and post it on line, then he totally lost me and millions of others. It was a sick comment, totally unacceptable and may have even been illegal. Promoting online pornography was not a real smart thing to do and will hurt the GOP with women voters, maybe men too, pure and simple. He ought to take a long break and get out of town before he causes any more damage to the Republicans.

    Liberal Comedian Louis CK Withdraws from Media Dinner After Van Susteren Calls Attention to His Sexism

    Earlier today, Van Susteren announced on her blog that she will not be attending the Radio and Television Correspondents Association Dinner hosted in DC every year. This dinner is being headlined by liberal comedian Louis C.K. who has said a number of offensive statements about Sarah Palin and other women that are far in excess of anything ever said by Rush Limbaugh on the air.

    He uses filthy language about women…..yes, the C word…and yes, even to describe a woman candidate for Vice President of the United States. It isn’t just Governor Palin he denigrates. He denigrates all women and looks to the crowd to laugh.

    I refuse to show any support for this guy or for the Radio and Television Correspondents Association Dinner Committee who hired him. I think the organization that hired him is just as bad as he is. It is no secret that he denigrates women.

    Here is a sample of what he said about Governor Sarah Palin and you tell me whether any member of the media should sit in the crowd while he speaks to them:

    Louis C.K. says of Palin: “her f*** retard making c***” and “the baby that just came out of her f**** disgusting c***.”

    To Palin: just “stick your t** in its mouth and shut up.”

    And here is more: ”…her f***** retard making c****”

    Need more to convince you? Here is what he says on twitter:

    “I want to rub my father’s c*** all over Sarah Palin’s fat t***”

    By the way, there is more, lots more.

    I hope all the other women and men in the media join me in not going. I also hope everyone has the courage to stand up to this, said Van Susteren.

    It really is astonishing but unsurprising that the liberal media has hired this guy to entertain itself. Obviously, any right-leaning comedian who had made such remarks would never have been given this prime gig.

    Kudos to Van Susteren for being a rare voice of consistency in the media with respect to left-wing comedians and talk show hosts.

    President Obama made a compassionate call to Sandra Fluke because Rush Limbaugh had wrongfully called her a “slut” on national radio. Limbaugh was wrong. Limbaugh can be pompous. While I may share some of his views, I don’t approve of overt disrespect. Regardless of political positions, calling any woman dirty names is low class and far from funny. It speaks more about the name caller, than the name-callee.

    Of course, one might wonder why a president of the United States would take time out of his daily crises situations to telephone a woman with hurt feelings because a talk show host called her a name. How’s $1 million for an answer?

    The president’s actions opened an intended can of worms. You see, this isn’t the first time politically leaning TV hosts and comedians have crossed the “low-class” line by resorting to filthy name-calling …especially against women. According to the media and the president, it seems whatever Bill Maher might say about an American woman is downright funny. They are fair game, because you see, Bill Maher is Democrat who loves Obama and has donated $1 million dollars to his campaign to boot. So, Bill Maher can call Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann all the dirty names he likes, it’s ok.

    From Maher: Palin And Bachmann Are “Two Bimbos” Who Belong On Gilligan’s Island. (nice)

    Regarding Sarah Palin… “Speaking of dumb twats…” (nice)

    When Maher called Sarah Palin a “C–T” on national TV, he added, “there’s no other word for her.” (nice again) Classy guy.

    Bill Maher is fearlessly unapologetic for his vulgar references to women politicos (who are Republican) and makes it a chronic habit, not some one-time slip of the tongue. Talk about hating. Talk about getting away with vulgarity on the air. And what are we to think of the people who would even laugh at so much unfunniness?

    This begs another question: Where are the phone calls to Sarah Palin, Mr. President? Isn’t being called a “C–T” or a “Twat” or a “Bimbo” just as derogatory as being called a slut?

    Where was the president’s call when Ed Schultz of MSNBC called Conservative talk-show host, Laura Ingraham a “Slut?”

    Where was the president’s call when Christine O’Donnell appeared on the Joy Behar show only to be called a “Whore.”

    Where was the president’s call when Michelle Bachmann walked onto the Late Night Show with Jimmy Fallon as the band played, “Lying Ass Bitch?”

    Where was the president’s call when California gubernatorial hopeful, Meg Whitman, was called a “whore” on voice mail by the now-governor, Jerry Brown?

    This is not about republican versus democrat. It’s about decency and respect. Celebrities, like all of us, may all share major differences in political issues but that doesn’t give license to denigrate women by calling vulgar names. It’s very Low-Class on both sides of the aisle. anyone who engages in such should feel the wrath of their constituency. That includes Maher.

    And, if the president had any class, he’d tell Maher where he could stick his $1 million.

    Don’t hold your breath.

    “At the heart of the First Amendment is the recognition of the fundamental importance of the free flow of ideas and opinions on matters of public interest and concern. The freedom to speak one’s mind is not only an aspect of individual liberty- and thus a good unto itself-but also is essential to the common quest for truth and the vitality of society as a whole. We have therefore have been particularly vigilant to ensure that individual expressions of ideas remain free from govenmentally imposed sanctions.” The First Amendment envisions that the sort of robust political debate that takes place in a democracy will occasionally yield speech critical of public figures who are “intimately involved in the resolution of important public questions, or by reason of their fame, shape events in areas of concern to society at large.” The Supreme Court of the United States. – If you do not accept this ruling – we can expect McCarthy era tactics

    I listened to your video today on this website had to write a comment. I’m a republican woman that never voted for anything other than a conservative ticket…however, I am very concerned about the contraceptive issue that is currently being discussed. I am not a freeloader, nor am I a slut or a prostitute and I could care less about Rush. He has nothing to do with my healthcare. I was prescribed birth control for reasons other than preventing pregnancy. So why shouldn’t my insurance cover that medication. Am I freeloading if my child’s Amoxicillin or my Levothyroxine is covered by insurance? What is the big deal here? I am also Catholic and don’t see bands of Catholic women screaming about their religious freedoms being infringed upon. In fact I only see men talking about this and it worries me. I am very seriously considering not voting at all in the upcoming IL primary because of this issue.

      Paris, the women have been discussing this issue for 7 years but not forcefully and loud.

      Thanks to Rush, that changed this week.

      I’m amazed how little some men actually know and understand about women and women’s health issues. They are not good listeners for whatever reason. My guess is they have intimate issues, very weak interpersonal relation skills. They are not the kind of man that a woman can talk to. So they just don’t know the subject before them.

      Archie Bunker, is alive and well.

        Deerinwater,
        Your reply is meaningless…doesn’t make sense.
        No surprise coming from a reincarnated Archie Bunker…don’t be proud of that as you are giving the republican party a bad name….off to a different website.

        Paris, Deerinwater has unintentionally shared something of himself. One need only read between the lines. His statement, is actually a cry for help!

        “I’m amazed how little i know and understand about women and women’s health issues. I’m not a good listeners for whatever reason. My guess is that i have intimate issues, very weak interpersonal relation skills. I am not the kind of man that a woman can talk to. So i just don’t know the subject before me”. I guess Archie bunker, is alive and well…

    that little “napoleon’, with a small hands and even smaller winnie, Bill M&whore – would have been better off if his mother actually took the pill…. so I can understand his ranting.

    Personally I don’t believe its “the left” or “liberals” who are the only ones angry at Rush. I consider myself a liberal but politics did not enter into my criticism of Rush.I criticized him because I believe he was and is wrong. As to the “liberals” tactics. It may be liberal pundits who attack conservative pundits. But liberal pundits don’t represent liberals any more than conservative pundits represent conservatives.

    Sandra Fluke has shown us the new lows to which the women rights movement has fallen.

    It is not necessary to denigrate Ms. Fluke or to speculate on her sexual proclivities, but it is important to note who she is, what she is doing, and what she hopes to achieve.

    Ms. Fluke, who has recently testified before Congress on behalf of free birth control from Catholic Georgetown Law School, is the product of a sexual and moral revolution that has now resulted in the reduction of women’s rights to the singular right of unrestrained sexual activity protected by universal and “free” birth control.

    She is the face of a radical leftist feminism which seeks a brave new world established by fiat utilizing supra-constitutional means, most especially and most recently via the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The restraints and processes enjoined by the U.S. Constitution, utilized with success by former reformers, apparently are just too tedious to work through.

    A once and often worthy civil rights movement has become a mere parody of its former self. Its most recent heroine has been groomed to subvert the constitutional guarantees of religious liberties and gut the long-established principle of separation of church and state. She now blandly and dispassionately advocates the evisceration of religious freedom in America. And for what? Not for women’s “health,” as is so disingenuously claimed. No.

    She is fighting for the “right” to have the means and resources to be free of the consequences of sexual activity, gratis the Catholic Church — which institution, by the way, is providing Ms. Fluke with a stellar legal education.

    Time was when real feminists fought for the right of little girls to be educated as well as little boys. Time was when they fought protracted and heartbreaking battles for women’s right to vote. Time was when they fought for the right to own their own property, to be in charge of their own monies, to be equals before the law.

    Time was there were heroines such as Abigail Adams, Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Whatever their personal vagaries, oddities, and conflicts may have been, they all fought for core values, values which included women having equal rights in education, in politics, in their homes, and before the law. They fought and they suffered on behalf of future generations of women, and the victories they did achieve were made possible by changing laws and/or amending the Constitution — amendments which gave the vote to blacks and women.

    We don’t see enough of such women anymore. We see far too many Flukes.

    Here’s a message from the beyond from Abigail Adams and other feminists of the past for Sandra Fluke and other radical feminists who have been convinced that birth control subsidized by religious institutions against the conscience is the most burning issue facing women today:

    My dears, there are far more heroic victories to be won than seeing your pet peeve “rectified” by HHS mandate. There are more serious battles to be joined in the struggle for female emancipation than making sure insurance companies allied with religious institutions provide you with the means to have safe sex, no matter what the cost to religious liberties. There are injustices and atrocities toward women which take precedent over your free birth control agenda, an agenda you wish to impose on all, regardless of their constitutional right to refuse coercion against conscience.

    All over the world, women and children are being trafficked for sex; women and girls are being subjected to genital mutilation; unborn girls are the victims of sex-selective abortions and female infanticide; and women are subjected to the horrifying strictures and consequences of sharia law. This is to say nothing of the women who are enslaved by the demeaning and destructive practice of polygamy or the women of the world who are without clean water and food for themselves and their children.

    Time was, apparently, when some of the issues listed above were important to you, Ms. Fluke.

    So could you and your sister feminists possibly turn your attention to the real battles on behalf of women’s health and welfare? There are constitutional, legal vehicles provided to you for recourse against injustices, real or perceived. The problem is that you want to ride roughshod over them to achieve your immediate agenda. Doing things the way the founders of our Republic established appears to be just so, so tedious for you.

    In the meantime, for the rest of us traditional feminists, as the Fluke ideal is held up and defended as the acme of modern womanhood by the increasingly repulsive left, shall we passively abandon the truly noble ideals which have formed women of character in both ancient and modern times to be trampled underfoot as mere relics of the past? Shall we, too, ignore the honorable ways and established vehicles with which to fight injustices?

    An ideal woman is beautifully depicted in ancient Hebrew wisdom literature, which describes her as, kind, just, generous, gracious, industrious, faithful, and God-loving. Is the thousands-of-years-old Judeo-Christian model of the ideal woman of Proverbs, exemplified by women such as Abigail Adams, to be completely forsaken in favor of a contemporary Fluke?

    Once upon a time, even for secular feminists, the ideal was equality of men and women before the law — equality of opportunity to pursue careers of one’s choosing. Once upon a time, feminists resented the reduction of women to the status of mere chattel or sex objects.

    But now we are seeing secular feminism come full circle. Now the new radical feminist is glorying in being a mere sex object, and she boldly presents herself as such. Fluke, the latest representative of the new feminism, wants to boldly crusade for the “right” of women to be mere sex objects. Further, women are to be subsidized for maintenance of their reduced and tiny identity by being given free birth control.

    Fluke’s quietly truculent advocacy of subsidized birth control in order to establish sexual “freedom,” no matter what the cost to others, reminds one of Brave New World’s ubiquitously sexual Lenina Crowne, who, protected by her government-dispensed Malthusian birth control belt, thought it her “right” to have sex with anyone at any time.

    What an ideal woman.

    For the sake of such an ideal, the new sexual world order is to go forward regardless of who is forced to pay for it against his or her conscience or who is against the infringement of the constitutional guarantees of religious freedom and separation of the State from the Church.

    “Oh brave new world, that has such people in it.”

    What a mess of pottage is being offered as a tradeoff for our constitutionally protected birthright as women created by God, standing as equals alongside men.

    Where were the bawling liberals when a certain TV “PERSONALITY”, if that is the word you like, called Sarah Palin by the same name? Rush slipped up, admittedly, but Palin’s attacker sniped ans continued sniping like a coward after a defenseless rabbit.
    WHERE were the women’s groups, when Palin was attacked? Hiding like the hypocrites that they are, with the cowardly sniper.
    So what have we here? A group of cowards who can’t hide fast enough behind the nearest wall, rock, the nearest available tree or each other, while their mindless attack continues. They MAY even stand before a camera, if their “back-up bullies” are with them, to support them or to give them someone to hide behind.
    COWARDS!

      Isn’t life too short to let yourself get so worked up over something so unimportant in the scheme of things? Maybe meditation would help.

  • Moby49

    Liberals trying to destroy Rush. That’s a laugh. Rush is destroying Rush. But don’t worry, he will be back shortly, spewing venom as usual.

  • jopa

    Political figures have always been fair game for comedy and criticism, however Rush stepped over the line when he attacked a private person just making a statement before her Representatives.It has always been somewhat taboo to attack children and private citizens.How would you feel if that were your daughter under attack like this young lady was.It’s is more than just Liberals that want Rush gone.
