I listen to Rush from time to time, although his views are a bit far right sometimes. I think that he is intelligent, articulate and slants the facts to suit his purposes. So do the far left. Alls fair in love and war.
I think that anyone who is interested in the truth needs to listen to people like Rush. Even if I don't agree I respect his right to tell it like he thinks it is.

I don't get a chance to listen to him as much as I used to but I agree with him most of the time.

I believe he lives down in your neighborhood somewhere. West Palm maybe!

I like to listen to Michael Savage go crazy sometimes, he gets so irate and angry that the radio smokes! Funny but I do think he has a big group of folks who listen to him also. Wife can't stand any of the talk show folks! She did radio and TV up here back in the 1980's and is a bit burned out on the whole game!

I don't always agree with Rush, but it tends to be more of degrees of disagreement than outright disagreement. Rush is a hardcore capitalist and is actually a true conservative in the Bill Bucley/Ronald Reagan mode. Rush has never called himself a reporter or a journalist, he calls himself a commentator or an entertainer, he's honest....the morons on the left all think they're the only experts out there.

I've met Rush twice, he's a nice person,,,I also really like Ann Coulter....but she could use a few more combination plates for that figure of hers...

I used to be. I taped his TV show because I worked nights, I listened to him every chance I could, then when I had a field job, I would make my liberal manager listen to him when he came down. I read his first two books.

As a conservatarian, I stopped listening to him when he admitted to being an illegal drug user. I don't fault someone for doing drugs, that is their choice. I do fault him for being a lying hypocrite calling for stiffer sentences for drug users. He always played so self righteous about illegal drugs, just to end up being a pure hypocrite.

That, and his hypocritical support of GWB, which was worse, was just too much. The man I had admired so much, betrayed me.

If people like Rush,especially Rush, had held republican feet to the fire over their big government growth and out of control spending, the republicans might have returned to their conservative roots, and we would not have a democrat congress right now. Rush gave the republicans a pass because it was politics and party over conservative principle. When Rush turned away from conservatism, and to the republican party, too many people who are unable to think clearly for themselves went with him, and instead of protesting loud and clear, they blindly supported the new liberal republican party, and gave US a democrat controlled congress.

I felt he should have been prosecuted for possession with intent to distribute.

Following a series of surgeries for advanced osteo arthritis, resulting in finally removing as much bone as possible and all discs and replacing with titanium cages and rods I have an insight in severe, chronic pain.
I was advised up front that I would become addicted to oxycodone. It is said to be the most addictive of pain management drugs.
Fortunately my surgeries were done in a facility that treats the whole person and managed withdrawal was part of my post op therapy, along with NA meetings 3x week.
(one has to consciously admit their drug addiction)
I credit Rush with educating the public and medical community of the after effects of prolonged oxycodone usage.
I am biracial, European and Choctaw. In the native American tradition, one does not pass judgement until they've walked a mile in your moccasins.

I think Rush is intelligent and funny, but I have a hard time taking him seriously after the drug thing. I don't need to walk a mile in his moccasins to recognize a hypocrite when I hear one. It's a bit much for a drug addict to rail on about how we need the death penalty for dope peddlers. :roll:

I think there is a big difference between someone who sells drugs, and someone who becomes addicted to painkillers because of a medical situation that caused him to be in constant pain! He was not buying the hydrocodone to sell to kids - nor was he sniffing cocaine in the men's room - he was trying to alleviate his suffering. I do not think that warrants a death sentence!!!! However, those that KNOWINGLY sell drugs to vulnerable people, with the full awareness that it will lead to the deterioration of their health and well-being, do deserve to be removed from society..........

Anyone who uses any drug can come up with a reason. The FACT is that when Rush got his drugs on the street, they were illegal.

The drugs he was addicted to are some of the most common and sought after street drugs. The THOUSANDS of dollars he pumped into the drug black market empowered the pushers to have more money to buy product to sell to kids. Rush enabled drug pushers with his massive business.

It's a matter of fact, shortly after 9-11, the Bush admin started pushing the idea that terrorists profited from the illegal drug trade and buying illegal drugs profited terrorist groups. According to Bush, Rush was a terrorist enabler too.


I guess the ditto heads will say Rush was doing it for the kids. He knew every drug he would eat, was one less drug on the street.

Yeah, that's it, Rush was using illegal drugs for the good of others. :roll:

I agree with Ninesey - for one, and one reason, only!

... she's SO much prettier than most - probably ALL
of you PugUglies (present company, included, may
I add) I find it impossible to miss the opportunity to
make some 'suck up points!'

I do enjoy a lady's touch around a forums with such
unrefined (ha ha ha) men's men!

(How many 'points' was that worth, Ninesey!??)
:D :D :D

Funny World I say,Rush was/is addicted to pain killers and well everyone understands,well gee that is understandable,he's worth millions and was in pain.

But "many of us ordinary people" who became addicted to morphine,the first time the Medic put two shots in us.Then three weeks in Japan,on a constant morphine regiment,before going State side are/was a drug addicted criminal once back on the street.But Justice is blind vary blind.

Sorry - can't stand him. I like O'Reilly better. I know some people don't like him. But, he's done a lot about child sex predators, and he's even gotten some Judge's to reverse lenient sentences a few times.

If you have not already figured it out, she will use you until the world ends. But when the time comes to "put out, or shut up", you will be left alone with fisteena and a can of vaseline.

It is sad that so many little boys allow themselves to be manipulated in the hopes of scoring, but never seem to get the payoff. Someday, when you are a big boy, wearing big boy britches, you will understand better.

As Robert Plant phrased it...... "she's just a woman".


BTW, Rush Limbaugh counts on the same ignorance.
