Quote from: 11angeleyes11 on January 04, 2012, 07:27:24 PMBack to Limbaugh, the Federal Building in Cape Girardeau is even named in honor of him. I don't recall the exact name, but I think it is the Rush Limbaugh Federal Building. Do the Feds and Limbaugh have common interests, are they in the same building together? Did one of Lindbaugh's relatives donate the land. . . .
Quote from: HAL 9000 on January 04, 2012, 09:35:42 PMActually, NOT. It was named for his grandfather:"Rush Hudson Limbaugh Sr. was a well-known and respected member of the Cape Girardeau community. Limbaugh received his legal training at the University of Missouriâ€"Columbia and practiced law for nearly 80 years until his death in 1996 at the age of 104. At the time, he was the nationâ€™s oldest practicing lawyer."http://www.gsa.gov/portal/content/102681
Quote from: 11angeleyes11 on March 06, 2012, 03:33:25 PMI used to listen to Rush daily, but have not done so in months. I came across this headline today and thought it was insightful:Radio stations drop Rush Limbaugh; Clear Channel syndicator defends host in Sandra Fluke 'slut' controversy.Probably twenty advertisers have dropped Rush including Pro-Flowers, Sears, and many others. Now the radio stations are dropping his program. It just illustrates that even the King of Daytime can misstep and fall. . flat.

Quote from: Seamus Capone on March 07, 2012, 01:41:25 AMThat "whine and cheese" fest with Fluke gave him enough manure for a month of shows. Surprisingly, Allred might get involved in the controversy now. She's not one to seek publicity, so I didn't expect her to express her outrage at Limbaugh's comments. Seriously, he crossed the line, but his critics might help him if they're stupid enough to pile up on him after he apologized. I don't love him or hate him. It's just ridiculous to give this so much press when we're faced with looming economic and military Armageddons. Journalistic priorities are backwards. Of course, I'm still waiting to hear what Lindsey Lohan thinks about all this.
Quote from: analog kid on March 07, 2012, 05:09:31 AMWe wouldn't be having this discussion if the Republican campaigns hadn't raised this ridiculous social issue, that was resolved before The Monkeys' first TV show aired. It was started by Santorum as a religious argument, and the Republicans thought they could make hay with it, but that didn't work out too well for them, so it was changed to a healthcare / social debate, with Rush doing his job of "carrying the water" for Santorum, etc.. Whatever random nonsense the campaigns throw out there Limbaugh and Fox News run with for weeks.

Quote from: Frys Girl on March 07, 2012, 06:34:47 AMI don't think it was resolved. A religious institution should have the right to not pay for contraceptive care in its plans. That's the point.
Quote from: Seamus Capone on March 08, 2012, 12:21:41 AMThe main point is that the federal government has no right to force religious organizations to violate their consciences.
Quote from: Simple Solution on March 08, 2012, 12:46:31 AMAnd no one is forcing religious organizations to take federal aid. This is the stick in the bargain. If you don't play by the rules that everybody else has to, then no more fed money for you. Sounds fair to me.
Quote from: Seamus Capone on March 08, 2012, 01:34:14 AMThat depends on whether or not said rules follow the Constitution. In the Georgetown case, not so much. The federal government violates the First Amendment when it requires Catholic schools to provide birth control to its students. In fact, the particulars of health insurance mandates are moot since Obamacare, itself, is unconstitutional.

Quote from: Frys Girl on May 31, 2012, 10:46:30 AMFor decades, we are encouraged to take them only to find out that estrogen leads to breast cancer during menopause. Yea..... most BC cells feed off of estrogen. Good for the Catholic Church for standing up to this administration.
Quote from: yumyumtree on September 17, 2013, 11:14:36 AMRush is spending a lot of time on global warming today. I'm not sure why. I have to admit that I don't understand a lot of this stuff and haven't formed a firm opinion on it. It's a complex topic and I suspect that a lot if people don't really understand it but just glom onto whatever some trusted icon(such as Al Gore) thinks about it.But today he's claiming that both the Arctic and Anarctica have had big increases in ice. I don't know if he cited his source for this but I have a hard time believing it. I realize that glaciers are a separate issue, but one of the things that made me concerned a out climate change was the reduction in glaciers in Glacier National Park( one of my favorite places)Another concerning thing about Limbaugh and climate change is that one day a year or so ago he openly admitted that one of the reasons he never entertained it was because people on the left supported it, so he therefore knew it was bogus. This is fallacious reasoning (IMO)and I don't know if he realizes how foolish it sounded. I've even heard him advise young people who call that this is a good way to decide the validity of a positionI know that Noory has guests all over the map on climate change, and I'm not sure what his own position on it is.
