Alright!  This will drive the left crazy!

(Especially the NEA.  ^-^)
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Who wants to bet the Rush Revere series WON'T be included in Common Core?

Well, there goes the rest of the week.

Oh, I forgot.  Rush NEVER talks about himself.

Rush has inspired millions of conservatives across two generations. What have you done, other than to complain?



Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Attacking me is a non-sequitur.

The fact is, Rush says he never talks about himself, and does just that likely a third of the week.  He's a money-making machine, and has become even more so the more money he makes.

I don't listen to Rush to hear him patting himself on the back for writing kid's books.  Or to hear some kid call in and, magically, get through and have the kid pat Rush on the back.

I guess he inspires you, but his show has gone downhill since he started hawking tea and kid's books.

Ten years ago, I tuned into Rush to hear political commentary. 

Now, when I tune in, there's Two-if-by-Tea and Rush Revere with a little political commentary squeezed in here and there.

Sink based strictly on what you say here it would be VERY easy for someone who didn't know better  to conclude that there isn't much you like about anyone or anything conservative.

Just sayin!

I think these children's books are the best thing Rush has done in a long time.  I heard a woman caller today telling him how much her daughter and her daughter's friends love the books and I could tell that Rush really got a kick out of it!  To be able to inspire young children in this way is so important, really important for the future. I'm happy for him.

If it's conservative to transform from a political commentator  (a commentator who pulls down $40 Million a year) to a product hawker/cochlear implant recipient/political commentator (in that order), then I don't recognize conservatism. 

Rush is not the political force he once was.  He's lost a third of his audience, and it's likely due to his show becoming one long infomercial.

This should absolutely make the head of Chris Matthews explode.  I can hear the anger and venom now (though I have to hear it from someone else or read about since I would never watch the wimp).
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

Congratulations, Rush!  A truly great American....no disrespect to Sean.  LOL

He found another niche and is filling it....although, truthfully, it was his wife who hatched the children's book idea and the talking horse Liberty.  Rush admitted this when the 1st book came out.  It's a terrific vehicle for him to reach the young.

No doubt, we're going to see video productions of the work(s)....ala Harry Potter.

That said, his show is almost impossible to listen to, of late.  The last hour is complete bullsh*t....out of sixty minutes, less than 30 minutes of actual content.

Still love him....but being in the car for virtually his entire show...it's gotten to the point that simply by glancing at the clock, I know exactly when to switch to my local sports talk program.

Would rather listen about RGIII or the NATS, than commercials that are teased and narrated by Rush, himself.  His last hour is unbearable.

JMHO.

Couldn't agree more.   But am still very glad he's "out there" bringing his message to the youth who are exposed to nothing except negative commentary when it comes to Republicans and Conservatism.

I am a Rush Limbaugh "Charter Listener" in that I am one of maybe 25K people who listened to Rush Limbaugh from the first day he came on the air in Sacramento.  I do find it hard to listen to his show of late, but I still might if I happen to be in my car at that time.  But more and more, I turn to my MP3 audio books for entertainment.  I think a big part of the radio audience does as well, and that has harmed all of broadcast radio, not just Rush.  Advertisers just don't support media in decline.  And, of course, everytime Rush says something controversial there is an outcry and advertisers peel away.

To solve this problem, Rush had to develop alternative sources of revenue, so he and his wife came up with the Two if by Tea and Childrens' Books.  It was a brilliant strategy from a marketing standpoint, but it no doubt antagonized certain segments of his core audience.  Nonetheless, Rush has found an income source that he controls, is sustainable, and frees him up to say what he wants without being at the mercy of MSM patrons who want everything liberal, or at least whitewashed.  I don't blame him in the least.

I can read what he has to say on his website, and it takes less than an hour instead of the three hours of listening.  So that's usually what I do.

As for Sink, he has never liked Limbaugh.  He has been bashing Rush for as long as I can remember, and we go back a long ways.  Rush, like all of us, is getting up in years and slowing down a bit.  He is a steadfast survivor, and I, for one, am very grateful for all that he has contributed to our cause.

  • Congrats Donald Trump! 45th POTUS!
Ditto. Can't stand to listen long anymore.

But, we on the right owe him our gratitude for forcing a conservative versus liberal dialogue. Alright, sometimes it was done by elbowing his in-your-face conservative message in to national media attention, but in those days that's what it took.

And now his book thing cuts right to the heart of the matter - educating the next generations of Americans. Ditto that, Rush!

It's called enterprise. In any mass medium, you have two choices to make money: sell yourself out to advertisers or sell your own stuff. Sandra Fluke and company damaged Rush's ability to do the former, so he does the latter. At least now, he has products people actually WANT to buy, and not that alternative herbal-cure crap that so many infomercial spokesmen like to hawk.

The best call I've heard was from a Mom whose daughter's teacher read the (first) book aloud in class and had the kids do their own writing project based on Rush Revere.

ALL teachers are not leftists (especially at the elementary level), and these books might give some a resource for teaching the TRUTH about America.
