    Was Becks ratings worse than Hannity and O'Reilly or Greta Van Susterns? I thought he was FoxNews #1 bread winner but that he was leaving for health reasons. So now he's got his own TV station, Blaze TV or GBTV or something? I'll say this for him, he never seems to give up.

    My understanding was he left Fox to do GBTV. I don't think it matters what the reason is, he is still a success...

    I really hope this is the beginning of the end for Rush. I also really hope this is a signal that the country is sick and tired of political garbage for entertainment and is more interested in real discussion.

    And yet he is still the most listened to radio personality in the country.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    I never get this. So when others practice their right to free speech in a way you don't agree with that is somehow a violation of free speech? Just as Rush Limbaugh can say what he wants, advertisers can choose not to do business with him because of what he says and does. That is freedom. What would you do? Force them to do business with him?

    Feel free to exercise your economic freedom regarding those folks' advertisers.

    So, you would go along with running Rush out of town on a rail; support violence against those you disagree with; we have the right to inact violence against the speech we don't like?

    Hahahah still taking it literally. Because you've never used phrases regarding anything liberal that might indicate violence if read literally, right?

    So, when someone says that Obama should be lynched; that's just hyperbole, too? Or, are you one of the first ones to start crying, "racism!"?
