    On this we agree.

    Just received the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the SOTU.

    I grew up riding with my grandpa, listening to Rush. Papa passed away 2 years ago. I admit I teared up a bit and wish Papa could've seen it.

    He has said that smoking and second hand smoke do not cause cancer. Quite unbelievable and it'll be interesting when he comes back if he addresses these past statements.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    i'm supposed to feel sorry for the guy that made fun of michael j fox, that joked about RBG when she got cancer, that made fun of Eric Garner not being able to breathe?

    He's not upset because Bush already presented all of the Tuskegee Airmen with a Congressional Gold Medal.

    Obummer handed out freedom medals to his Hollywood buds. Got a fat movie contract out of that too. Good on him.

    Thanks, Tim. Glad someone broke the ice on the pity party. Dude is Goebbles. Eff him and all the talk radio d-bags who incite fear & hate and spread lies.

    in situations like these, it’s always better to be the man you think he should have been.

    Stay classy, boys.

  • Buffco2Buffco2 Posts: 177 Senior Member

    Yeah, I figured it would come to this. I knew most of you wouldn't like him, but for **** sake, lung cancer... at 69.

    Actually we as a nation can do better. Limbaugh is a racist lump of shiite. He should get all the compassion and sympathy that he gave in this life. Which is exactly none. The world will be better off without him. I would say I have sympathy for his many wives, but I doubt even they give a crap.

    I meant you can do better with regards to your meme. The Tuskeegee airman was hardly snubbed.

    If you’re going to try and defend Rush and this decision, you have zero credibility


    dont know the man, but his on air personality is one of the most hatefully and divisive personalities to ever grace the national airwaves, and one could easily argue he was one of the architects and causes of the current divide

    I blame the current divide on Obama.

    Do you actually know anyone that listened to Rush? I know I don't and I never did. Can't stand listening to any talk radio.

    I'm not defending anyone. What I'm saying is the left has a propensity to label anyone, or any media outlet, who they don't agree with politically as racist lumps of shiite. Just a few threads back the same guy tried to say the same thing about Ben Shapiro. I'm sure he'd say the same thing about Ted Cruz since his podcast is now number one, and he’s conservative. I guess I’ve missed all the outrage over all the hollyweird celb superheros who’ve used their acting super power to bash the POTUS and every member of his cabninet with impunity. CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, WAPO, NYT, HP, etc, etc, are daily, hourly, pushing leftist propaganda. Three years of them mainlining the Trump, Putin, Russian lies, and when the investigations over, and he’s not guilty. Crickets. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a non left biased opinion or news outlet these days? What’s telling is how even though they are in the minority, they have the lions share of views…

    I'm not gonna defend Rush. I just think its classless to gloat over the man's impending death. Its one of the worst features of liberalism: the inability to turn it off and act like a human being as long as the target of our two minutes of hate might have a single defender left.

    Well we know that you do not believe racism exists because you have never experienced it.

    This is not just a feature of liberlism. It is not like this POS has never gloated over the health concerns of people on the left.

    You would defend David Duke as a good conservative.

    I have never heard Ted Cruz say anything racist, just stupid.

    If this is the hill you want to die on, be my guest.

    Indecency is not a requirement of politics. It may seem that way, but it isn't. That applies to Rush, you, me, Cheeto Jesus, everybody.
