    Here you are doubling down to hijack the thread to discuss Godwin's law and me, instead of the topic. How come you don't see that?

    Then why do you listen to Limbaugh?

    Here's a few memorable quotes from 'Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrim'.....




    The 15 best lines from Rush Limbaugh’s historical fanfiction about himself


    Rush the substitute history teacher and his talking, time traveling, magical horse.....are more likely to inspire kids to take a nap than to pick up a real history book. lol

    It seems harmless enough.
    OMG, Rush references himself and has others thank him. No question about it, that's just like Goebbels supporting and advancing the extermination of Jews. Indeed this is an apples to apples comparison.

    I bet those parents groups never read the book. How can they judge the content of a book if they've never read it?

    I don't know. I don't know where your quote is from but a group with the acronym "STFU" sounds like a joke or a parody.

    Well, then, they're not liberals, are they. No matter what they or you or Cletis and Joe-Bob at work say.
    You don't get to change definitions to suit yourself, you know. And don't give me that 'classic liberal' line, either. I've been liberal all my life, come from a long line of liberals, and I sure don't need some bumper-sticker philosopher to tell me what I believe, especially when he's so far wrong he's coming around the other way.

    If you have kids, or nieces/nephews you want to get interested in American History, these are some good reads.
    Given who he is appealing on his longtime radio show - he certainly has tons of experience speaking to the immature and naive.

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
