What little I've seen of Rush, he's a really smart guy. He's also very funny, so maybe it's true that he wanted to be a comedian. People like him are influential, and I can see why.
I do believe, however, that people who speak with such passion on a regular basis are going to be more susceptible to heart problems because they are constantly being too emotional. Emotion is going to constrict those little arteries and make the blood have a hard time getting through.
I also think he looks quite good for his age, so it's possible he's had a few nips done on the face. Don't know, or care, but someone said he looked bad for his age, and I don't think he does. I'd say he may look his age, cause he's not as doctored up with botox, but come to think of it, he doesn't have a lot of frown lines, so he's probably on that bandwagon as well. I'll check him out the next time he's on TV.
He was addicted to oxycontin. He says we're too tolerant as a society. I think we're more forgiving than we used to be, and there's a difference. Too many people are in jail for having drugs, and they shouldn't be, when they could be productive. There are probably thousands of alcoholics that function well in society, they just get drunk a lot. That should be their choice and Rush has no business butting into that. He wants no butting and butting when he thinks it's ok, but he's only one voice on this. The country needs to make that choice.
So, what's my final conclusion on Rush? I wish him well, and hope he has many more years of throwing his brand of rhetoric around. Everybody needs to realize it's just talk. He's just making a living, and it's better than digging a ditch!
Happy New Year!!!!!

I've known that for a while. But it's nothing new. Sometimes I wonder if there's just one extremo rightwinger out there posting under several alaises. Either that or someone let the parrot out of the cage and he learned to type. They all seem to say the same words, use the same spin, same justifiers, etc... It's becoming so predictable that it's, for the most part, sheer boredom. Zzzzz...

***** Actually there are plenty of Right Wingers out here. At one time they were the edge in California until the 1965 Immigration Reform Act totally kicked in. They even were a sizeable portion of Vermont. Barry of Oahu deserves every bit of the mistrust & animosity they have including from those questioning his status. I'm still wondering where all his "Private" funding came from originally in 2008.
