    Limbaugh does very well with a medium from the Thirties and ideas from the Gilded Age appealing to people who seem to have a hard time accepting the present.

    Plenty of Republicans are getting elected. Even in the last presidential election, nothing changed. But the numbers aren't looking so good anymore for the Dems, who have alienated the white population to death. The Left has shown nothing but extreme hate for the white population in this country. Then there's Obama's approval rating which I don't think is going to improve very much. I wouldn't count the Republicans out.

    A high white vote has Obama worried about Democrats in the 2014 midterms.

    Your using terms such as "addict boy" and "Oxy boy" really say it all. As I've said, I'm not a fan of Limbaugh...but neither am I a fan of nasty people who crank out dismissive terms like this when the man did seek rehab and did beat his addiction basically a decade ago. Sorry you're so stuck in the past and so nasty and vengeful. Whether you like him or not, Limbaugh is much more than "addict boy," and your use of these terms says much, much more about you and your character and reasoning powers than it does about him.

    I'm guessing that you yourself have never had to live with chronic, white-noise pain and so have no understanding of just how easy it is to become hooked on painkillers. It's not because they make you high; it's because they control the pain so that you can function.

    Making a petty personal attack on me does not change the fact that Limbaugh appeals to people in denial of the last 100 plus years of history using a medium that hit its peak well over a half century ago espousing ideas that were out of fashion when the first two digits of the date changed from the nineteenth century.

    And Haymarket is a great believer in personal responsibility. I only wish Limbaugh were.

    Since you appear to have some kind of irrational confidence in a source that admits up front that they got their "information" from emails submitted to them, we can leave that be.

    But let's recap, shall we?
    • You said Limbaugh makes provocative comments that inspire groups who are prone to violence to commit such violence. The implication being that such groups are violent and from the radical Right.
    • I list actual groups who are not only prone to violence but do & did actually commit such violence. Those groups are unmistakably from the radical Left.
    • You then respond with a link to a site that lists comments allegedly made by Limbaugh that I gather you meant to suggest had encouraged violence of some sort or other to be committed by somebody or other. Yet you listed neither.


    That's whatcha call disjointed nonsensical thinking born of partisan fervor and you should have that looked at.
