Quote from: Ruteger on May 09, 2019, 04:27:07 PMAnyone else used to listen frequently to Rush? I really don't listen anymore. EVERY DAY now it seems like the same-old thing - "collusion", "Mueller", "obstruction". Nothing changes and there is really nothing interesting to keep me listening especially with the god-awful amount of commercials. Might as well shut the radio off 15 minutes before the end of the broadcast as it will be 2 mins of talk and 13 mins of commercials.Savage is much more interesting, but he treats his callers like sh*t and yells and screams a lot which isn't good for my blood pressure.
Quote from: Liberace! on May 09, 2019, 09:10:54 PMI listen to the podcast version of Rush's show. I'd rather take a baseball bat to the groin than suffer through the real-time broadcast version. In the podcast version, after all the commercial bull crap is removed, each hour comes to only about 32 minutes.As to the topics Rush discusses, I'd say he talks about what's happening in the news, and at this moment in history, it just happens to be the topics you've grown tired of hearing about (and I can't blame you). I think it would be difficult for any credible political show to avoid these topics day to day.I gave up on Savage a couple years ago. He stresses me out and depresses me. Further, I could see he was looking for ANY reason to turn on Trump, and it seemed to be primarily rooted in his belief that Trump owes him. He's also painfully jealous of Limbaugh.I haven't missed a Limbaugh broadcast in about 4 years. I've been listening since I was about 11 years old. I can't imagine the world without him.
Quote from: albrecht on May 09, 2019, 09:56:27 PMWhat I like about Limbaugh is he is funny and uses clips from the "media" and various politicians to hoist on their own petard with their comments and news items. And, normally, is not hysterical.
Quote from: Liberace! on May 09, 2019, 10:17:23 PMWhat I like about Rush is that you'll know what's happening after listening to him. Period. It's the most thorough roundup of news I've seen anywhere ever. Yeah, you'll also get his opinion, but in delivering his opinion, he'll provide the leftist point of view in order to explain himself. Regardless of whether you agree with him, you'll know what's happening if you listen to Rush. It's a giant misconception that a leftist can't listen to Limbaugh without having a seizure.I'm going to merge this thread with the already existing Limbaugh thread, btw. Just a heads up so you know where it went.
Quote from: albrecht on May 09, 2019, 10:32:07 PMWord. WTOP just had to register as a Russian foreign agent. And most Leftists I know, on both coasts- the heart-of-the-beast types- are too busy networking, making money off the tit, or trying to figure out new schemes to get sorted in various administrations, lobbyists, and etc, and the Left Coast are too deranged and manic to deal with it, despite lots of time on their hands, since that Hollywood "business" seems ridiculous stuff about meetings, lunches, trips to "write," and driving around in traffic talking with other people about nonsense, often how to remake old movies.

Quote from: Ruteger on June 04, 2019, 08:45:12 PMHe seems to mention and talk about Apple alot and run interference for that company on his show.Does anyone know if Apple is paying him on the sly to constantly mention and defend their products? Seems very suspicious to me...
Quote from: Liberace! on June 04, 2019, 09:39:09 PMhe definitely shills for apple whenever possible, but i think albrecht's correct that it's simply because he's a true believer, like most apple people. while limbaugh is all in with apple products, i think he knows the people at apple would love nothing more than to destroy his credibility by making such an arrangement known to the public. that's the first of about 30 reasons why i don't think he's getting paid to shill for apple.
Quote from: ItsOver on June 04, 2019, 10:12:23 PMI agree. He just loves the Apple technology. I'm almost surprised Apple isn't paying Rush NOT to mention them.

Quote from: Norm on February 03, 2020, 05:27:00 PMLung cancer is often not detected until it has spread. Life expectancy for cancers is typically expressed as a 5-year survival rate (the percent of patients who will be alive 5 years after diagnosis). Overall, the 5-year survival rate for lung cancer is lower than other cancers, at 18.6%.
