RIP. I’ll miss tuning in at noon for his monologue.

Keep your politics on the other side, though I doubt the usual crowd has that much self-control.

You can't post about a politician or political creature on this side of the forum.

ANY time someone says 'this isn't political' or 'keep politics out of it' - THAT IS A POLITICAL THREAD

The moderator has made this abundantly clear dozens of times, but people just keep on doing it...

Funny how the people who exhibit bad behavior seem to have the most power on this forum. Not funny I guess, just sad. Such terrible thoughts professed today.

Yet, one should be able to do so, if they aren't simultaneously contributing political editorial.

I think what The Moderator has made clear is there is someone always looking to tank a post to the Other Side for personal reasons.

When a post takes a turn, it's banished when Anthony pushes, and The Moderator is forced to act.

Like Soylent Green, the problem is people!


I don't wish death on anybody, but I don't mourn Limbaugh's passing.






I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Same here. He got rich promoting hate and bigotry, when he didn’t have to. He knew better, but greed got to the better of him.

If Limbaugh had stuck to politics, then you would not see the vitriol spouted at him today. But he didn't, he instead mercilessly launched personal attacks on individuals and groups of people he didn't like.

How can you expect people to show him the respect that he never showed to other people?

Two kinds of people who all eventually die: the kind who leave the world a better place and those who don't. Pretty certain most can agree on which kind of person ol' Rush was.

Why in the world would anyone bother to celebrate the lives of those who didn't bother make the world a better place but instead spent their lives spreading hate and discontent?

Although in this particular case, Limbaugh's death will possibly make things here on earth somewhat better…if only because no one will be poisoned by his rhetoric any longer.

This is far from true. ANY post about ANYbody who can be related in ANY way to politics gets thrown over here. That's NOT our idea. It means, for example, that you can't post that the White House now has a shelter dog living there. Or that GW Bush is now a painter. Or share funny (and SO not political) Bernie's Mittens memes. And, again, that is NOT our idea.
It is the people on the Tips and Deals side who FREAK OUT if anyone posts anything that involves anyone or anything that is even vaguely connected to politics. And obviously, Rush was ALL about politics so there's no way in hell a thread about him should stay over there. since nobody else gets a pass.

And btw, Rush is the one who said Robin Williams killed himself in despair over "political leftist" guilt. And played "I'll Never Love That Way Again" while he talked about people dying from AIDS. And said Michael J. Fox was faking his Parkinson symptoms. So I imagine that Rush is looking up at us all and saying, yeah, that's cool, talk @#$%& about sick and dead people, after all, I always did it.

The right wing is not known for its fondness for reality.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

He started bad mouthing the global warming group back in the early 1990s. He was a college dropout who didn't understand anything about climate science, but built the anti-global warming movement into a part of "conservatism." I neither mourn him nor celebrate his death, and point out that he had retired from radio a while back, if I understand correctly.

Someone who spewed hate and intolerance and whose values and ruminations brought discrimination, violence, and terrorism to "others" is finally dead. No, I don't mourn him nor do I think he should be mourned in any way.

Maybe the world can be just a little bit better now.

He never retired. His last show was earlier this month.

Rush normalized for conservatives lying, conspiracy theories, racism and other forms of bigotry. We just had the Rush presidency, I dont think we would have had Trump without Rush.

He made us dumber and meaner than we ever needed to be, as a nation. That's his legacy.

He was still doing his show up until recently, not sure when his last broadcast was. So he had not "retired", at most he just was on less during the past year as his condition got worse.

Rush accused Fox of faking illness, not Robin Williams. V63 was talking about Fox.

Rush had ill will towards so many people, who can keep track?

"Rush Limbaugh, the sex tourist and drug addict whose four marriages, mockery of people after their deaths and overt racism and misogyny made him a beloved icon of American conservatism, is dead at 70." -Cory Doctorow

"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

I'll bet you really miss this segment!

One of the ways he made the world a worse place to live was a regular segment on his radio show called the “AIDS Update” where he would celebrate the AIDS-related deaths of gay and bi men.

[www.lgbtqnation.com]

Oooooh, but he later said it was "insensitive."

He just channeled the hate to other targets.
