Rush Limbaugh says, "Don't need to contribute to earthquake relief because they already donate to Haiti through their income taxes." You Gay Republican Real Jock Members proud of this second disgusting comment from your de facto leader of your Republican Party?

    I agree with you 100% about Rush Limbaugh. He is an ignorant, vindictive, hateful scumbag. However, I am not going to wish any ill will or death upon this irrelevant piece of shit of a man because what he says about other people is going to cost him very dearly in the long run. I was especially appalled by his heartless, hateful remarks about the people of Haiti. Keep in mind what comes around, goes around and Mr. Limbaugh is going to get what he rightfully deserves. I condemn Rush Limbaugh for his horrible comments but unfortunately he is entitled to his opinions as wrong as they are.

    Rush is not the leader of the republican party, he is an entertainer. Not all republicans listen to Rush. I have never listened to his show. Not all republicans hate gays, just like not all democrats love gays. If you think Rush is a disgusting human being, more power to you. I actually agree with you. It is not fair though to lable everyone that voted for a republican at some point in their life to be a Rush loving, Haiti hater.

    Since I am neither an American or republican. To a point I have to agree with Rush, as my county via the money it gets from taxation, is very generous to such things, and we give away a large amount of hard earned cash every year to world aid, and theses payments are made on behalf of both Aussie and Australian taxpayers.

    Albeit I also donate every month out of my private income to world aide to, and animal protection, and I've just donated Friday, two weeks pay to the Red Cross as extra. But even if I had not done none of that, as a tax payer the Australian government would of givern a donation on my behalf anyway, and the rest of us who pay tax.

    Just as I'm sure our head of State Her majesty Queen Elizabeth II, would of made a donation out of her private income too

    But you are so wrong. RJ Republicans will defend him, make excuses for him, rationalize him. Just wait & see. He is their Republican spokesperson, as their Party leadership has proven.

    Now some of them here will attack me, they will attack you, they will attack the rest of us, they will attempt to change the subject, as Republicans always do, often with great political success.

    Or they will take their favorite fallback position: "they all do it." Well, no, they don't all do it, Republicans -- YOU do it, YOU are the problem here, not the US political system.

    YOU have caused the bipartisanship, declaring yourselves the Party of No, YOU are the ones who have declared that you want President Obama to fail, regardless of the harm that will cause the US in this time of crisis, YOU are the ones who have aligned yourselves with Christian fundamentalists and extreme right-wingers, who come to town meetings with assault weapons and hateful intimidation.

    Defend yourselves if you dare, your record is public, your reactionary rhetoric putrid. You have no ideas but opposition and hatred, no direction but backwards racism & bigotry.

    It bothers me most that I see again the same battles being fought that I thought were won nearly 50 years ago. I guess evil never sleeps, always ready to spring back to life when people of good intention let down their guard. We often assume the history of the human race is continuous advancement -- the US Republican Party proves how evil is eternal, and ever watchful for weakness.

    Well, let's clear some things here. The MAJORITY of Republicans support Rush Limbaugh. A minority of exceptions do not make your case. And the fact that ALL Republican Party leaders support him, even defer & apologize to him as is public record, make him more than just an "entertainer."

    All Republicans do not hate gays, as you say. Just those elected Republicans who pass laws. What a helpful distinction to gays that is.

    "I don't hate gays, I just vote for those who do, and who pass laws against them."

    Here, let me pass you the bowl of water, so you can wash your hands of the guilt.

    Ugh! This gets so tiresome that it hardly is worth even responding to but, okay, I'll bite. For the umteenth time Rush Limbaugh is not, I repeat NOT "The Leader of the Republican Party" -- de facto or otherwise. He is a far right leaning radio commentator -- I believe the one with more listeners than anyone -- who uses his soapbox of a radio show to voice an opinion -- HIS opinion -- NOT the general opinion of ALL Republicans. Can you possibly grasp that and get it through your head?

    Give it a rest buddy, not all Republicans think alike. This is all about you judging everyone based on the voice of a single person. Grow up. All political parties have their share of people who's words and actions are contrary to many of the party. Democrats have had their share (IE: Kennedy & Chappaquiddick, Clinton & Lewinski or William Jefferson & bribery). You certainly are an embarrassment to all of us democrats who can distinguish between good and evil without prejudging everyone!

    What YOU fail to acknowledge is that Limbaugh expresses Republican talking points, in lock-step with the Republican leaders. And what he says, they in turn echo.

    This is the drumbeat of Republican right-wing propaganda that you fail to admit. And during the 2008 election, whatever Limbaugh said, Republicans parroted. And those who wavered from what Rush said, were quickly called on the carpet, and made to backtrack & apologize to him. Is your memory so dim, or deliberately selective? It was the talk of the country, if something Republicans wouldn't like being remembered today. How well you play the forgetfulness game.

    Being a UK resident, I have no idea who this Rush Limbaugh is, but I do take note in what he has said.

    This is meaness of the worst kind, and he showed his lack of compassion or pity. And it does not matter which political party he's allied with. In fact whether he is Republican, Democrat or Raving Loony, that does not matter at all. What matters is his own wealth, nice house, nice car, promising career but his utter disregard for the thousands of Haitian victims of an earthquake which they had no prediction, let alone control over.
    People like him should have a taste of his own medicine. See how HE would feel if under distress, he sees others shutting their bowels of compassion against him. Then he might learn a thing or two.

    And I'm not preaching religion.

    When a Republican is losing the argument, he falls back on ad hominem attacks. If you ally yourself with our gay enemies, expect no sympathy from me. Rationalize Republicans all you like, their official position is anti-gay. What is yours?

    Republican leaders in 2008 did not ALL fall in lockstep with Rush...most notably, John McCain. Regardless, you play the "Let's dwell on the past game" like your vespa ran out of gas in 2008 and can't quite make it to 2010....c'mon now, catch up. icon_lol.gif

    Rush Limbaugh represents some of the very worst folks in the U.S.A. and the worst attributes of any individual, anywhere. It's deplorable that some folks think he's wise. He's not. He's a big fat jerk.

    Ad hominem, ad hominem. Try a different tactic, like facts & logic. Attacking my Vespa scooter? How lame is THAT???

    OH, BTW, here's the leader of the Republican Party kissing the ass of Rush Limbaugh. Perhaps you missed this? I can provide a ton of other links if you insist.

    Curious, you're not a good student of recent political history are you?
    At the time McCain was bucking the Rush-led republican machine - yes

    But where did that get him? Remember what the republicans - well the Rushies anyway did to him?
    They tarred and feathered him in South Carolina
    They said that he fathered a black baby
    Said his wife was having an affair
    That she was a drug used

    To the point where he couldn't even defend his OWN past legislation during his last Presidential bid ... like Campaign reform
    and he was forced by the Rushies to take on a lunatic like Palin

    Face it ... your party is being led by a fat Oxycontin addicted loudmouth
    Take your pick of any guy that fits the bill

    Many view Rush as the Rep. party's talking head, so what he says needs to be scrutinized and taken seriously.

    Well, Limbaugh also reminds me of the neighborhood bully to whom kids have to show respect or get beat up. But if he likes you then he'll beat up the other kids for you.

    That way you don't get blamed for it, the bully gets the attention he likes, a sweet deal so long as you don't somehow tick off the bully yourself. Then you gotta kiss his ass twice as much to get him back on your side.

    Sure sounds like the deal the Republicans and Limbaugh have struck with each other.

    I'm not going to enter the whole political debate surrounding Rush. I cannot stand the guy, but technically he is right. The 100 million in aid that the US government is sending comes from our taxes. So yes, even if you decide not to contribute directly to the Haitian relief fund, you (if you're an American citizen) are still contributing indirectly through your taxes.

    And also, on top of the 100 million in aid we're sending, the US is also sending an aircraft carrier down there. That thing costs roughly half a million dollars a day to run (paid for by our taxes).

    That ugly/fat arse piece of shit, whom should have died while in hospital, is not the only one who has said this. That being said.....I have to agree. icon_eek.gifListen you all know how I feel about Rush and the repuGlicans. But this has nothing to do with what political party you are with. It's common sense!
    We have already sent 100 million dollars. Which is way too much at this time. Plus as someone else just mentioned, all of the equipment and personnel. It is way more than enough. Frankly, sending 100 million dollars of our tax dollars doesn't sit well with me. icon_mad.gif
    That country has suffered a terrible blow no doubt. But it would not be nearly as tragic if they didn't breed like bloody rats and destroy what was once a beautifully forrested land. Even now, the inhabitants there are running around brandishing long knives, attacking everyone with supplies.
    The civilised Western world can not do everything.
