    Re: Sharpton, Jackson Attack Limbaugh's Rams Bid

    Unfortunately Republcans can't choose to own what Rush says only when it benifits them and not own his Rhetoric when it does not benefit them.
    They own the whole package.

    Just as they own the whole "tea party" package....the good and the bad.

    The NFL looks at "The Whole Package" and decided for good reason to DECLINE Rush.

    No, but there is something in the Constitution that gaurantees freedom of speech won't be infringed upon.

    No, one is infringing his proclivity to spew hatred. Just don't expect us let to him play with us.

    What's next? Rush can't vote, because you don't like his political views.
    No one has done anything to restrict his political views. They just don't want to have anything to do with such a person.

    If he wants to play with others he will have to play nice. If not, he can take his marbles and go home.

    Jay Leno tonight said Rush just found out that NFL means "Not For Limbaugh!"

    I've heard his radio show and there is no doubt in my mind that he is both a racist and hate monger. He appeals to peoples most base characteristics. He is allowed to do this under our 1st amendment rights. There is nothing in the constitution that requires us to like him however.

    And apparently, even money can't buy him love!

    Do you know what "sourcing" is.

    To say that you the article "Sourced" them from Rush Limbaugh then they would need to denote when they were said, with some ability to actually go check that. They don't.

    Jesus Christ, tell me you never went to college or else you'd never make it through any class that actually required sources.

    I can't say "Obama said he had homo sex and smoked crack" and then when you ask me for a souce say "Obama's my source" and expect you to consider that freaking credible because that's not sourcing.

    Sourcing would be saying "On his show on november 13th, 1991, Rush Limbaugh stated [x]". This way, people could actually go and try and find transcripts or copies of said show and actually check to see if the person is full of **** or not.

    Instead this person took quotes other people have stated Limbaugh read, with absolutely NO research done and NO fact checking done and NO attempt to actually get it right, and just state it as if its fact that he says it. And now, when Limbaugh says its not true, he never said it, you're saying its on HIM to prove its wrong?

    Do you also think its incumbant upon Obama to do everything and anything the birthers say to prove their wrong, since they're the ones making the ludicrous claims and he's denied it so obviously its on HIM to prove it

    That was incredibly rude. The 'talking points' were sourced via link, and on the page each of the ten were sourced, if you want to check them go ahead. Heads up, you'll have to purchase at least one book to do so.

    Providing links for posts is quite common; since when is it required to purchase all the backup material too?

    This isn't a ****ing college class. It's a message board.



    And yea, Gill, a book is a source. Buy the book and find out if the quotes are there or not.

    Not without quotes AND sources from the book it's not. You need to learn what a source actually is and isn't.

    And fine, you're free to think he's a racist. I think its an idiotic opinion, but you're free to have the opinion. My issue is not with the opinion you have.

    My issue is with you continually using untrue quotes to back up your opinion, and when confronted with the fact that the person that first wrote them out never presented proof Rush said it and those in the media that have repeated never presented proof that Rush said it and that Rush himself denies ever saying it you just keep going "Well its true cause Rush said it".

    Yes, the link he used is sourcing a book which:

    1. Used WIKI as its proof that he said it.
    2. Had NO footnote or notation anywhere in the book stating the date, place, anything of when Limbaugh stated the quotes.

    Limbaugh has catagorically denied ever saying it. Not a single, solitary reporter NOR the aurthor of the book have been able to provide a single bit of information as to when and where Rush Limbaugh stated these quotes.

    So no, generally, people aren't required to source everything or even source their source. However, when something has been shown to be flase and you keep perporting its truth based on absolutely nothing but a link that's been shown to be false then its rather pathetic.

    Are you seriously saying if you can link to something it MUST be taken as truth?

    Look. Barack Obama is Kenyan! This link says so, it has to be true even though he denies it and there's no proof of it....but a link says so!

    Look. Obama's had homo sex and done hardcore drugs!. This link says so, it has to be true even though he denies it and there's no proof of it....but a link says so!



    And yea, Gill, a book is a source. Buy the book and find out if the quotes are there or not.
    I don't know about Gill, but I'm not suggesting that the quotes aren't there. They are there.

    I'm suggesting the book:

    1. Got them off Wikiquote
    2. Does not source where they got those quotes from (nice way to fail out of college)
    3. The aurthor has never clarified or brought forth that information since then

    I'm also suggesting that a bunch of ****ty writers, some of which from completely biased sites such as the one the user posted, have done well...****ty writing...ignoring the fact they're quoting a book that breaks general rules of standards when quoting someone by not actually sourcing that and just deciding to throw it into their pieces as well. I'm suggesting that posters who then use that ****ty source, which uses another completely false source, and then is made aware of this fact and still proclaims it to be true need to either give us a time and place it was said or expect for that opinion and suggestion to be attacked and ridiculed as the idiotic notion it is, on par with the notion that Obama had Homo Sex after he came over from his birth place of Kenya.
