    I'm going to guess from the silence that the answer is no.

    So you're argument is that it's okay to viciously slander any private citizen, so long as that private citizen hasn't been a vocal advocate against slander? Really?

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    In the very first paragraph in the very first link it says:


    They are talking about the mandatory coverage, and a lot of people are against it.

    You are being duped.
    Yes, I read it.
    No, I am not being duped.
    Yes, the Catholic Church is fighting President Obama's compromise on the birth-control insurance coverage policy. His compromise was that religious employers would not have to offer free contraceptives for workers The insurers would cover it instead.
    When it comes to matters of reproduce health, Politicians and the religious dogma of another faith should never interfere with religious liberty of an individual or her faith.

    I don't call what Rush said "vicious". I'm okay with most speech as long as you aren't threatening to kill someone. Does that answer your question?

    No, you clearly dodged the question.

    Well at least at one station, the lack of advertising dollars is having an effect.

    Personally, I think the hoopla over Rush's comments are an over reaction, but his statements were certainly uncalled for.

    SNL did a great bit on this.

    I think the fat man will bounce back, not as profitable, but there's always new sex-lines and scam websites that need to advertise.

    Are you okay with me threatening to not use a product or service that advertises on Rush Limbaugh?

    Yes, you did. You focused on the word "vicious" instead of addressing the main point, which was to ask you whether you think it's okay for a radio personality to attack any private citizen over the course of several days, so long as that private citizen hasn't been an anti-slander crusader.

    Basically you're making an absurd argument. Like, it would be okay for me to walk up and punch a stranger in the stomach ... as long as that person wasn't someone who had advocated against assault and battery.

    I did address your main point. I said I'm okay with any speech toward any adult (public or private) unless you're threatening to kill someone. And by "okay" I mean that I wouldn't call for anyone to be fired or boycotted because of it.
