Forum Post: What YOU dont understand about Rush Limbaugh

Posted 2 years ago on March 4, 2012, 11:46 a.m. EST by FreeDiscussion5 (12)
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

Rush is POWERFUL because of US,,, not the other way around. If it wasnt Rush it would be someone else. You can try to get rid of Rush all you want but Rush is just ONE of MILLIONS of examples of the RIGHT way America should be ran. Spend all your time on Rush,,,, we are glad,,, because we got MILLIONS and MILLIONS that could take his place in a second. Dont think that bringing down Rush will change any of our minds. Rush is a 'GUY' with only ONE microphone.

I have to say on this issue I agree whole heartedly with George Carlin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vzrxy9A7Ja4

Yep, that was great.

[-] 3 points by brightonsage (4494) 2 years ago

Well, you correctly identified the problem. It isn't Rush, it is the people who listen to him. We do understand Rush, clinically. It is the rest of you that is so puzzling. That significant numbers of you are willing to become sycophants of such a flawed character with so little charisma seems difficult for mental health experts to explain. It seems to be an unusually protracted form of hysteria previously exhibited exclusively in women.

There are a numbers of studies of this phenomenon in process and I eagerly await the outcome. You must be in one of the active groups rather than a control group?

[-] 0 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

And YET,,,,, you need, US, to survive. That is why you whine at such extreme levels needing us and,,,,, we really dont need you. That is what YOU dont understand. You cant seem to solve your own problems. You NEED millions and millions to become liberal in need of OUR help. Try changing your focus away from US and toward those that you think need the help. You cant. Sit down and use as much imagination as you have and come up with a senerio where your type fix your own problems. I know,,,, you will come up with your logic of,,,,,"well YOU seem to want all them there tax credits and bail-outs,,,, dont you sir?" NO,,,,, we really dont. We use them because we can and we also know that we could do it without government assistance,,, we just want to get back SOME of the money that you whiners TAKE from us. Solve your own problems and everyone will be in agreement and you wont NEEDDDDDD us.

[-] 3 points by brightonsage (4494) 2 years ago

TARP was passed by the GOP, as I recall. And you refuse to let the tax breaks go away for people who wouldn't let you wash one of their cars. You don't even get to use them. Do you?

What is so difficult to understand is why you claim to advocate for individual self interest while you are being short changed by the 1% along with the rest of the 99%. Guess it isn't rape, if you approve of it? Smart people wouldn't shill for them with out getting a payoff. That used to be the GOP way until a younger and perhaps, dumber generation, came along that has sold out too cheap.

Show me a chart of the upward mobility of young Republicans that track the rise in incomes of the 1%. Doesn't exist. The 1% is laughing their asses of at you guys, behind your backs, of course.They used to say a sucker is born every minute. Must be true, again.

I certainly don't need you. I wash my own car. Tell me again what I don't understand. Oh, your boots are wet because it's raining? Riiight! What was your username last week? Somethingtroll?

[-] 0 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

Here is what YOU dont understand. YOU have ZERO idea if the 1% are,, as you say,,,"laughing their asses off" YOU have no idea. That is what you WISH,,, that is what you say,, but that does not make it so just because you WISH it. Say as often as you like,,, doesnt change the facts that YOU HAVE NO IDEA. If you didnt FEAR those of us,, then what is your purpose? You really dont have one. You spend a great deal of time trying to convince us you are right and yet you spend ZERO time trying to get people out of being POOR. They continue to get poorer every day while YOU worry about a 1% person laughing. You just let your types get poorer,,,,, as they do. The laugh is really on you and those that have failed the poor,, every day.

[-] 2 points by brightonsage (4494) 2 years ago

I have always had a health respect for the criminally insane, and their self important emulators. What do we properly call people who try to pass themselves off as 1%ers? "Frauds" is what comes to mind. I know you infinitely better than you know me. Especially when you speak in all caps.

The bathroom is out of tissue and it is time for you to get back to work. And stop wiping your nose on you sleeve. You are embarrassing your self.

[-] 1 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

I use caps for a reason. I learned that it get the attention of only idiots. It worked.

And that's ok. You see, here is the problem: You can bullshit some of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time. This is where you start to fall apart.

Rush is nothing more than a disposable tool. If the Right is to salvage themselves, he will be disposed of soon enough.

He is not a tool. I seldom listen to him. WHY? Because I already KNOW he agrees with me. Not the other way around. He agrees with the MILLIONS and MILLIONS and MILLIONS of other that agree.

Sure, until he becomes a liability.

[-] 1 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

You ALL claim it is the WOMAN'S Body and she has the right to it. How about she pays for her body with her own money? If I dont have any control over her body why does SHE have control over my tax dollars? There must be some fairness.

I thought you wanted to discuss Rush. I didn't realize that you wanted to discuss insurance.

[-] -1 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

What I would like,,, is to actually here someone on here discuss programs to get the poor,,,,, less poor. I dont think ANYONE on here is even think about that. It seems to be to destroy everyone but not one word about trying to get people out of being poor. You all have failed,,,,,, very bad,,, at it. I just hear blah,, blah, blah,, rich,,, blah , blah,,, Rush,,,, blah blah,,, contraception,,,, .

[-] 0 points by XenuLives (1645) from Charlotte, NC 2 years ago

Conservatrolls have too short of a memory... Because just last week we had threads about:

  • empowering unions and commenting on the current union struggles (unions negotiate for better wages and working conditions in order for the poor to have more $)

  • working on getting the government to institute more jobs programs that will put the poor unemployed back to work.

  • living wage amendments that would raise the minimum wage to rates that allow people to be able to afford basic amenities instead of having to use welfare & ebt.

Don't believe the trolls. They are the ones who are burying the good threads with tons of anti-Obama and other politically charged crap. Stop replying to their threads, and reply only to the good threads to keep them on top...

[-] 0 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

Very interesting how you guys use words. "Empowering", like empowering a dog to crap in the back yard and not the living room. "Working on" what the hell does working on mean, like working on moving the broken down car in the front yard five years ago to get to the back yard? "Amendment", like the RIGHT TO BARE ARMS? Man,,, you guy have been WORKING on this crap for 50 years.

[-] 1 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

He cant be liability. Millions of us all agree with him. It would only be a liability if we didnt. I agree with him this past week just as much I have always agreed. I agree with his statements this week.

[-] 3 points by shooz (26712) 2 years ago

If you agree with a known liar.

What's that say about you?

All I know, is that's a liability to all of us.

He's a big fat liar, it was proven in a court of law.

That makes him a liar.

He becomes a liability when he doesn't have any sponsers. He also becomes a liability when he leaves those elected officials trying to figure out how to answer for his crap.

[-] 0 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

I'm a Rush Limbaugh Member. I can watch him everyday,, as does millions on the intenet,, without a radio station. You are really spending way too much time on him and not trying to help the poor. That is why you all fail so miserablly. You keep watching the back door when the thief has the truck backed up to the FRONT DOOR. The poor keep getting poorer and you really have ZERO plans to solve that, Your really not as smart as you all think you are.

[-] 2 points by GirlFriday (21783) 2 years ago

I'm not wasting time. You are.

I'm trying to keep you a little occupied over here so that other people can have conversations. You are such a sucker.

LOL,,, You actually,, in your little mind,, think that I cant have 'conversations' with other people on here. You actually think you all by yourself is keeping me occupied. LOL...You think a lot about yourself. You should,, nobody else does.

I prefer to seek the truth.

I guess that's the difference between you and me.

[-] -1 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

No,, I do understand. YOU dont pay for ANYTHING. You dont even pay income taxes,,,,, or sounds like,,, condoms. Now yoou want me to pay for your condoms. I pay YOUR income taxes so you can sit around and whine. That really is the difference. I do pay for the stuff I want.

100% lies.

Rush has taught you well.

I guess you got what you paid for. A head full of BS.

"If elected, the following day I will close GITMO and return all the prisoners, ban the Patriot Act, bring all the troops home, fix the economy, end all conflicts, end all lobby activity,capital gains tax reform,Sunlight Before Signing’,,,, blah blah blah." Sounds like 100% lies to me.

I posted what I had.

Who listens to this guy's program? Anybody? Ya know, if it weren't for the fact that every once in a while he pulls another PR stunt like this and gets all the reactionaries all fired up, few would know he were even still alive. Ratings in the crapper, Rush old man?

[-] 0 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

"Who listens to this guys program?" LOL Just 20 million,,, JUST 20 million. Based on all the posting against him,,,, I ,,,, must be right. Based on what you posted,,,, it appears like you are not aware of his radio statements last week. Since nobody listens to him.

[-] 2 points by ThunderclapNewman (1083) from Nanty Glo, PA 2 years ago

I can't argue your claim of 20,000,000 listeners, Free. And advertisers must know those numbers as well. I'm not one of the 20,000,000. Didn't Mr. Limbaugh say something that could well be perceived as libelous of Ms Fluke? I saw some video of him railing on about how he thinks he should get free porn, or that he should receive porn in exchange for aiding the purchase of birth control for Fluke and others - something like that. Rush is one kinky guy, eh Free? You ARE a listener (viewer)? Say no more! Birds of a feather...

[-] -1 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

You know,, if you liberals are so lazy that you cant solve your own problems or pay for your own condoms,, the next step will be a democrat sponsored law where you will need assistance on putting the condom on. You really are a bunch of lazy people.

[-] 2 points by ThunderclapNewman (1083) from Nanty Glo, PA 2 years ago

I can and do solve my own problems. That's why I'm here at OWS - working to solve problems; not sitting around complaining about things but working to solve the problem. The great thing about folks like yourself is that you provide a little diversion from the intensity of the work at hand. For that I thank you. As it happens, I don't use condoms. I'm in a monogamous relationship and have been for many years. Isn't it time for you to watch some RushPorn? You closeted voyeurs and all your pent-up aggression! But, watching is easier than doing and requires no real commitment or risk. Perhaps some session therapy might be good for those of your ilk.

[-] 1 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

Apprently you DONT solve your own problems. You are ask those of us that do,,, for our money.

[-] 1 points by ThunderclapNewman (1083) from Nanty Glo, PA 2 years ago

I'm sorry. I was under the impression that you weren't wealthy.

[-] 0 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

I dont see that I used the word "wealthy" in any of my comments. Where did you read that?

[-] 1 points by ThunderclapNewman (1083) from Nanty Glo, PA 2 years ago

I didn't specifically read the word "wealth" when you wrote of your personal life, that I recall. You did write that "You know,, if you liberals are so lazy that you cant solve your own problems or pay for your own condoms,," which sort of implies that you do have the money to pay for my condoms, but you object to my wanting you to pay for it "You are ask those of us that do,,, for our money." Our money (collectively speaking). So then you are wealthy? I thought you were going to lose your home and business. That doesn't sound like something a wealthy person would do...lose their home.

[-] 1 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

You are lost.

[-] 1 points by ThunderclapNewman (1083) from Nanty Glo, PA 2 years ago

Yep. That's me. Lost. But I can still find my...um...butt without the aid of a map and a flashlight. Is it time for free RushPorn, Free? (redundant, right? And on several levels)

I agree Limbaugh is just one man that can distill the feelings of millions into one simple idea. He does pretty much for the right what Maddow and Olbermann do for the left. They all go too far with interpreting the words and actions of others and oversimplify complex issues. They are more entertainers preaching to the choir then anything else.

In this case I think the point was missed and the whole thing has backfired on him. He's made Sandra Fluke a celebrity and done more to advance her cause then she could have ever done.

[-] 1 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

I really dont think this past week is any more than a gnat on time. She had her 15 mintues of fame. She will pose in Playboy and need even more condoms. Then a year later she will look like crap. I seldom listen to Rush,,,, I dont see a need to. I know that HE agrees with the MILLIONS and MILLIONS of us out there. Liberals are really wasting their time on trying to bring him down,,,,, I'm glad they are,,,,, but even if Rush retired this afternoon,,,,,, there are thousands ready to take his place,,,, and growing.

[-] 1 points by brightonsage (4494) 2 years ago

Brain damage is contagious.

Nobody listens to him but they quote him verbatim on his phoney version of her testimony. If you don't want to use her testimony as she said it, and you don't know Rush's version and you make up your own wouldn't some of them be different from his?

There were so many people quoting his version and none with a different version and none like what she actually said, what conclusion should fair minded people draw? Coincidence? Come on hillbilly.

[-] 0 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

I didnt even listen to what he said. I have no quotes from him. His statements may have been over the edge. So what? My interest is in what it means for the long term on America. This lady today wants a huge amount of money for contraceptives. OK,,,,fine. A couple of things. Why should I have to pay for it? What if I pay for it and she get pregnant? Why should I have to pay for the delivery or the abortion? Why should I have to pay for her contraceptives and for HIS contraceptives? Why should I have to pay for the child once delivered? What if she then wants tax money to buy a cell phone saying she needs it to call the guys she is planning on having sex with. Or the car insurance to drive to the motel. Or gas money for the hotel room? Where in the hell does it stop? According to YOU,,, maybe NEVER.

[-] 2 points by brightonsage (4494) 2 years ago

You still don't know what you are talking about. It wasn't about her contraceptives. Rush made that up.But since none of you guys who don't listen to him all take his made up version to carp about.

It isn't going toi cost you a nickle. It isn't going to cost the Catholic Church a nickle.And it isn't going to cost the insurance companies a nickle either. So that makes a little harder to gripe about it so do what Rush did, make up testimony and say that she said it. Nobody will check it out, because they want to agree with your phoney gripe session. And we will ignore everybody who brings up what she really said so we can concentrate on the phoney story that it is going to cost the Church money and they (the bishops who 98% of the Catholic Church members disagree with) object to paying for something that they don't really have to pay for, disagree with their members using.

Who is the Catholic Church? Is it a handful of bishops or 99% of the members? Do the bishops own the members? Or do the members own the bishops? Or do you care? Got any problem with somebody in Rome dictating what American citizens want in their insurance policy?

[-] 0 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

Sorry,,, I had NOT idea that contraception was FREE and nobody has to pay for it,,,,, NOBODY. It just suddenly appears out of thin air. Drops in someones lap,,,, free of charge. Drug companies have a magic machine that pumps these out and put on secret and magic trucks driven by invisible people. WOW,,, I had no idea it would not cost ONE NICKLE. You are so smart!!!!!!

[-] 2 points by brightonsage (4494) 2 years ago

Insurance companies are smarter than you. The reason they aren't complaining is that providing them saves them money. That was disclosed when the were debating "Obamacare". “In the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t seem like a material cost to be added to the managed care company or the employer,” Stifel Nicolaus health insurer analyst Tom Carroll told Reuters. Of course they were charging everybody who didn't know that extra, if they could get it. When Obama called them on that fact they caved, because they want all of their clients on it to save them money, on birth benefits and the other heath issues it solves (15 million women need the pill for non contraceptive reasons). So, it has a cost but it saves money, so nobody has to pay a net nickle. But that doesn't help your lame scenario does it?

Obama set you up to argue a lost cause and you jumped on it. But you were used to being a sucker.

You will and have gotten what you have voted for. The failed liberal agenda has ruined this country. This is the worse time in history with no indications it is or will be better. People better PRAY there are some rich people to pay the taxes needed down the road when the liberals will be eating rather than aborting their babies.

[-] 0 points by JPB950 (2254) 2 years ago

I'm not really following the whole side show much now, are you being facetious about her being in Playboy?

Limbaugh does seem to have something in common with many millions of people I don't doubt that at all. I've seen the national ratings, I think all ten of the top ten talk hosts are conservative. It should be something of a reality check for those always talking about representing the 99%.

[-] 0 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

You are correct. Nearly every Fox New cast beats all other LIBERAL cable news show by a million or more. Liberals THINK that because they are the loudest they are the most loved. They are only loved by those that need them and yet,,,, after all that love they seek,,, after voting for the 50 years of failed liberal agendas,,,,, those that vote liberal keep getting poorer and poorer every year. They have gotten what they have voted for. I vote,,,, republican. WHY? I think I have received a return on my vote. Those that I know that vote republican tend to be better off,, in some cases much better off. Those that vote liberal are much worse. WHy would you vote that way??????

[-] 1 points by XenuLives (1645) from Charlotte, NC 2 years ago

I vote liberal and my income has only gone up! I also get more freedoms when I vote for liberals.

What does the GOP offer me? I get to pretend like I'm better than everyone else because I'm attacking gay people, women, and blacks? I get to be a closet racist and swear that I don't hate Obama because he is dark-skinned? I get to pick on Latino-Americans and try to kick all of them out of the country?

I realized something: the GOP has lots of supporters because it is easy to HATE. HATE is the easy, juvenile response to something that you are not knowledgeable about. See the HATE towards proven climate science. Conservatives HATE climate science because it disproves their fantasy fiction book... and that makes them uncomfortable. They want to live simple lives where everything is defined in black and white, where white is right so attack the blacks. Where homos are dead, and the latinos have fled, and we can live our little white lives. No thinking required, just HATE everyone that isn't white, middle-aged, and male and read the fantasy fiction book every Sunday instead of confronting the real world.

Yeah, I'll take the party that advocates rational thinking instead.

[-] 1 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

And yet,,,, the inner city across this country are all BLACK. The slums are ALL BLACK. The poor are typically made up with the majority, Black. You must be so proud of your accomplishments of keeping them in their place. On the other hand, WE promote a black as a presidential candidate, or secretary of state or some other powerful position and fully support them,, what do YOU and your types call them,,, OREO's,, black on the outside and white on the inside. Uncle Tom is yet another name YOU use toward blacks. You have a really hard time on the race issues. I suggest you figure out your true hate for blacks first. You want them to FALL IN LINE and if they have a thought for being better,, YOU call them names. You should hate yourself.

I hate Rush for destroying the Chevy Volt and ruining free contraception for catholic college whores. And a lot of other things like firing the air traffic controllers because he told Regan to do it and also made the deal with the rest of the union leaders that they'd do nothing about it.

He really crossed over the lines this time.

He also controls NATO, the UN, the CFR, the IMF and The Fed, which is the only good thing he's responsible for.

Rush Limpwrist's Federal Reserve has kept this nation from being ruined.

[-] 0 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

Rush destroyed the Chevy Volt???????? Are you kidding me???? HE did??? How did he do that? About one half of America, or around 150 million are democrats. So around 150 million democrats must be listening to Rush and NOT buying the Volt. They all listend to Rush,,, the democrats,,,, and did what he said. Democrats,,, as you suggest,,,, will do what Rush says. So,, yes,,, Rush destoryed the Volt using democrats that refused to buy the Volt.

[-] 0 points by SmeggitySpooge (78) 2 years ago

He's really that powerful and people really are that stupid.

None of the 150 million democrats have any money at all because of the mean republicans taked it all aways from them.

Not really, you got me messed up with somebody that didn't actually have my hands on a Volt, over two years ago when GM was still frantically searching for a cure to their long standing and well known fire problem.

Ease off the venom,dude.

I know what the gig is with the bad design and money trail.

Hell fire, I owned a Kilowatt from the early 60's that was far safer and out-performed the Volt by a long shot. It was an original car bought by an Oak Ridge engineer who vastly improved Henney's design, which also was better than the Volt's.

I actually sold it two years ago to a kid who told me he was going to put a VW engine in it. Idiot.

Imagine that.

[-] 1 points by FreeDiscussion5 (12) 2 years ago

Here is the real issue. COST. Plain and simple. Only upper middle class could afford it. If the target audience was rich democrats,,,, THEY DIDNT WANT IT. If the target audience was rich republicans,,, THEY DIDNT WANT IT. If you are one of the global warming fruit cakes then take out a huge loan and support the cause on your dime. I have not problem with new technology,,, new things that will improve America,, but you cant FORCE people to love something they dont. Obama said he would probably buy one in five years. WHAT? Buy it today and give it to one of your daughters for an early birthday present. NOPE. He didnt like it THAT MUCH.

[-] 1 points by SmeggitySpooge (78) 2 years ago

At the real cost of nearly 300,000 each, very few could actually ever afford one if each unit wasn't subsidized to the tune of 250,000 each.

Shall I show you 30 year old electric car designs that were far more viable, even with 120 mph performance? Regenerative brakes and all even......

The volt represents communism indeed.........

btw... the "R's" made Obama subsidize them..... there was absolutely NOTHING in it for any "D's".

It's like wind generation. The liberals pushed it and then when they wanted to install them near the Kennedy homes in Maine, he filed to keep them away from HIS PROPERTY. As long as it was on someone elses property,, HE loved them. That is how liberals work.

Humans work that way....... most all of them.

Liberals are merely sociopaths and borderline retarded as long as they aren't "D's" or "R's"......

because we know the bi-party system truly works, especially when "D's" are in power.

Keep your focus on Rush and what he says so we can continue our plots against you without you knowing about it.

I agree. not all conservatives agree 100% with Rush, but he is very popular and he pioneered conservative radio shows. I prefer Michael Medved and Michael Savage's shows. The left is just jealous because they have no big lefty radio show. Well they do have NPR and Pacific Radio, but NPR needs tax payer support to survive and Pacific radio has 9 listeners.

Here is the problem liberals dont understand. We dont agree with Rush,,, HE agrees with US. That is why he is popular. They want to attack Rush,,,, go ahead,,, if he goes, that just makes us stronger. i suggest they spend as much time as they want attacking Rush so they will leave US alone. GO for it.

exactly, i'm sure that his show ratings benefits from more angry liberals, not less angry liberals

I'm a Premium Internet Member. I listen to him directly without caring about ratings. He will not be stopped. The more liberals spend on attacking Rush the less time they have attacking another one of my freedoms.
