    That could be pages of debate here. Suffice it to say, I don't think anyone should go to prison or jail or simple drug possession.

    Rush got the same deal that any first time arrested addict gets, drug diversion. I have no problem with the penalty he got. I think it was appropriate.

    What I am simply pointing out is that just like many things in life...those who shout the loudest suddenly become quiet when the things that they are shouting about are shown to be their own downfall.

    Is Rush the first hypocrite in the world? Hardly. But nevertheless, Rush and his rationalizers are still hypocrites.

    Thats not true he was sought after in a way no regular drug addict would have been.

    I know about the law I have a family member on probation for possession of Oxycontin she is now in jail for driving after going for her methadone treatment. You have to take at the place but can not drive on it kind of a catch 22.

    As much as I disagree with Rush's political views I do wish him a speedy recovery. ...and so he can get back to his spewing out our endless supply of worthy debate material.

    So you are on the same level as Rush and think that being a crack addict is bad but popping pills is OK?

    There is a very slippery slope here you are taking as addiction is addiction.

    You've correctly identified one off-topic post in this thread (which is about Rush being taken to a hospital with chest pains), now why not start on the other 450, starting with the one you just posted?

    Show me your source that confirms that Rush said it's okay to be a pill popper. As far as I know he went through a lot of rehab, once for a couple weeks, which to me says it's not okay. But if you have something more, I'm all ears.

    No, what you have here is really little more than a man that had a failing in his life, and instead of recognizing that he addressed that and rehabilitated from his addiction, and manages to stay on top of his daily struggle, you (and other liberals that like to hide behind the "moderate" or "Independent" tag, talk about hypocrisy) want to use this failing to bludgeon him, in the hopes of forcing anyone you disagree with to shut up. And you do it sticking right to script.

    "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. You can kill them with this, for they can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity."

    Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. In conflict tactics there are certain rules that [should be regarded] as universalities. One is that the opposition must be singled out as the target and 'frozen.'...

    Isn't there something more creative that you libs, and faux libs can come up with other that some 35+ year old play book?

    Let's face it. You have nothing to respond with to what Limbaugh says about the demo party in general, so you attack him, and anyone who may listen, or defend him. All the while living in that glass house with your own vile commentators that have a myriad of problems themselves. What a joke.

    I don't understand how some wing nuts are so unamerican and unpatriotic. It only encourages and emboldens our enemies.

    So you are saying that right wingers are unamerican and unpatriotic? And furthermore, you are saying that Rush wants Obama to fail without attention to context?

    Rush said that he wants Obama's liberal/socialist agenda to fail, and if people want that to mean that Rush wants Obama to fail, then yes Rush wants Obama to fail.

    But you go ahead and take that out of context and run with it, because you will be defeated in any debate.
