Jeffrey : brn_gamble, Eat me
This morning as I was rushing to get to a 9:00am meeting, I inadvertently was 'treated' to a racist rant by Rush Limbaugh, a preview of coming attractions slipped into the morning news.

Limbaugh was talking about "Pharaoh Obama" and used terms like "let my people go" and "Bro" in reference to the President of the United States.

It's hard to believe such blatant racism can be tolerated in what's considered the 'greatest country on earth.' It started my day off on a decidedly sour note.

I guess that's the downside of freedom of speech.

The good news is, the meeting went well, and by noon I was at the hospital with Charlie, waiting for her to be discharged. I was so exhausted this afternoon, I slept until 4:00pm, then woke thinking it was the middle of the night.

Tomorrow morning we've got to go in to let in the maintenance guys and turn off the server . . . so it's time to turn in. It's hard to believe we're already into the middle of February!

Rush Limbaugh is the poorest excuse for a human being that exists and it's shameful he gets away with as much as he does.
I'm not given to such harsh criticism about people but he sets my teeth on edge and makes me ashamed for America.

I don't ever listen to him and can't imagine I will ever decide to,either. Rhetoric like that is what keeps us from moving towards being truly "united",and I agree,it's disgusting. What is exponentially distasteful is that he's saying things like this during Black History Month.

Somehow I think Martin Luther King,Jr. and other high profile civil rights leaders had higher expectations than that for us. :(

(((hugs)) to you!

yes amazing too that Fox has admitted MORE THAN ONCE it is faux and yet people still claim it as news

shakes head -- hate radio is a "right" to many of the same folks

Personally I think it is a mental illness and there is medical science showing up again and again about fundy beliefs being such..
