Not being pulled...Rush was great and I will miss hearing him daily.

My dad turned me onto him years ago and I’ve been an avid fan since.

It was very sad to hear his wife start the show with news of his demise.

Rest in Peace.

Also....If any member disrespects Rush by talking crap about him.... they will get an immediate 30 day ban.

Already had a member take advantage of my ban offer...too bad as It’s really a no brainer...If you have nothing nice to say about Rush...don’t’ say anything at all.

Early on, I happened to be listening to Rush when he suggested that there ought to be a national day for women, and was looking for nominations. Someone called in and said "Mary Jo Kopechne Day . . . because she kept Teddy Kennedy from being president." At which point Rush declared that nominations ceased. That was a classic, and pretty darned funny.

Keith,
Rush was a speaker at one of the NRA conventions, where he was gifted a muzzle loading Kentucky style rifle. His show was based in New York at the time, and he did a monologue about how it was virtually impossible for him to keep the primitive gun in New York. As if New Yorkers were in some sort of grave danger from radio talk show hosts, armed with flint locks, rampaging in the city.
He was on the air for 30+ years, with leftists literally employed by organizations trying to find a “gotcha” moment in every broadcast, and succeeded in making liberal ideas look as dumb as they always are, while making any thinking person laugh out loud. He used to say liberals are the show, they just don’t get it, and he was 100% correct.

Best,
Ted

Ted, thanks for the reminder about the flintlock rifle that was presented to Rush by the NRA, in recognition of his support for the 2nd Amendment. I obviously missed his program about the problems with owning it in New York City, because I am one of those fools who works for a living and pays taxes, instead of expecting government hand-outs.

Your comment is relevant here, because it illustrates the foolishness of those guys who actually believe that if we give up semi-autos, handguns, large cap magazines, etc., then the anti-gun Democrats will not come after our double shotguns. Where Democrats rule, not even single shot flintlocks or percussion guns are safe from onerous regulations.

I listened to Rush daily when I had radio reception for around 15 years. He informed us and educated us like no one else could. He was a strong voice for conservative values.
Godspeed Rush.

My late very good friend "Pappy'" was a retired machinist and taught me a lot about using the lathe, mill, surface grinder, etc. as well as life. Every day, he stopped whatever he was doing to listen to Rush. Pappy would have given anything to meet Rush, I guess now he has. BTY, Pappy turned me on to him too.

Nothing political about honoring a great patriot and American hero. I dare this to be taken down for any reason.

Rush Limbaugh understood how precious our Constitutional Rights are, and spent his career supporting the pro-2nd Amendment Conservatives who would work to preserve our freedoms. He urged President Trump to never compromise with the Democrats on gun rights. He was a strong supporter of the NRA. Although I never heard him say that he was a gun owner, a shooter, or a hunter, he had our backs... unlike some people right here. Rest in peace Rush. And thank you.

He was a giant.

The legacy of logic, of informed, right thinking people that he left in his wake gives him a footprint in history larger than MOST U.S. presidents. And that's NOT hyperbole.

He should have a monument.
