    So I'm not patriotic unless I give Rush Limbaugh, the person who has probably contributed the most to convincing the more simple minded conservatives of the country that all liberals are evil, 24 dollars so that he can donate a buck or two or maybe alittle more to a very worthy cause?

    Sorry, not buying his bull**** or yours apdst.

    Hey apdst, if you care so much, why not rather donate all the money you would have spent on this tea to the foundation rather than whatever % Rush deems an acceptable dent in his profit margin, or do you only care about orphans and the military when Rush tells you when and how?

    This whole buy a product with percentage going to good cause is a tricky thing.

    It makes it easy to donate money to a cause. It also allows a company to prey on your good conscience.

    I have always wondered about Girl Scout cookies. Who can turned down a little girl scout selling those wonderful Mint cookies. But how much do they really get off the dollar? It is a win-win for the cookie manufacturer as they do not have to pay for adverisement or a middleman. Without the cookie sell how many of us would actually take the time to give money to the scouts?

    As in this case of Limbaugh, it is once him wrapping himself in the flag to prove how much more patriotic he is than others. If he was really patriotic (for a draft dodger) then why not just ship every single bottle to our boys in the Middle East where they could use a cold ice tea.

    I get pretty sick of those that like to wrap themselves in the flag and use it as a marketing scheme as Limbaugh has done here but i also don't like the idea of hypothetical "well if he was really patriotic... etc" stuff. Everyone can have a different way of showing it and I don't think it's anyone's job of determining just how patriotic someone is, even if the person is a bloated bag of tirds like Limbaugh.

    Probably about the same amount I would be buying, now.

    He is not buying any now, he stated he is unlikely to buy any of an Oberman tea in the future

    Sure enough. To wit:
    The words "flag, standard, colors, or ensign", as used herein, shall include any flag, standard, colors, ensign, or any picture or representation of either, or of any part or parts of either, made of any substance or represented on any substance, of any size evidently purporting to be either of said flag, standard, colors, or ensign of the United States of America or a picture or a representation of either, upon which shall be shown the colors, the stars and the stripes, in any number of either thereof, or of any part or parts of either, by which the average person seeing the same without deliberation may believe the same to represent the flag, colors, standard, or ensign of the United States of America.

    It's unfortunate that you have so little respect for the flag, Mellie. I'll be praying you come around.

    If someone claims ultra-patriotism, it is crappy to use it to sell some crap. I use it because I believe in it. I carry it onward, to foreign lands. My tea is different.

    Him and his garbage can go to hell.

    There, now Guy got me upset. I hope you're all happy. Damn Rush piece of crap.
