If Rush has major surgery I wonder if he'll go through a change like Cheney was alleged to have experienced.

Fully? If there's any justice in the world he'll lose the ability to speak, but be fine otherwise.

He is 58, he smokes, is overweight, he crash-diets, and has a history of drug abuse.
I guarantee when he returns to the airwaves, he will be blaming this on something else. And then he will return to pointing fingers at the shortcomings of others.:rolleyes:

I, too, hope he recovers. I also hope he comes out with a different view of our health care system. Perhaps some first hand experience will give him a different perspective.

If he doesn't recover the republicans will need to find another leader.

First of all, he can afford the best medical treatment in the world.
And if there are any shortcomings in his treatment, he will blame it on regulation. A union nurse gave me the wrong medication; the AMA wouldn't let my doctor buy a new heart on the black market from China, etc.
Meanwhile all the good treatment will be credited to the magical invisible hand of the free market.

That is Limbaugh 101.

John Smith

That's unfair. It's quite possible, is it not, to love the country but think it's failing?

I've posted frequently that I believe the hole we are in is too deep to dig out of, that we're like the Titanic after she hit the iceberg.

That's a very reasonable possibility considering the big picture, and acknowledging it as a possibility or as a probability doesn't mean one hates the country.

I do have a Rush question. Did he say anything about the republicans praying for God to keep a democratic voter away from the senate, presumable via death or illness? If he supported that, maybe I won't hope he pulls through.

Chest pains. possible heart problems. Not surprising; although he's only 58, he hasn't taken good care of himself.

While I think Mr Limbaugh has done more than any other single person to turn political discourse in the US into a stupid hostile brainless polarized acrimonious dimwitted juvenile shi!t-slinging festival, and has badly harmed his country in the process, I don't wish him ill. I hope he recovers fully and has a comfortable retirement, preferably somewhere far away from microphones.

pefjr may well be telling the truth when he asserted, “I have not seen any RW praying for sickness.” [47] He did not comment on and perhaps did not see http://www.woodenboat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=107642.

pefjr’s ignorance of a very well publicized (by the Right, as it happens) event does not mean it did not happen.

Perhaps before he or she asserts something so readily verifiable, pefjr should indulge in a modicum of fact checking.

Birchibald "Birch" T. Barlow

Barlow(RUSH)played an important part in the episode Sideshow Bob Roberts, in which Sideshow Bob, while jailed, calls up Barlow on his radio show, giving him an outlet to voice how the prison treats him unfairly.

Barlow, knowing Bob is a fellow Republican, sympathizes with his complaints, and influences the rest of Springfield to as well. This leads to Bob's prompt release and ensuing mayoral election-rigging.

Well put Keith, although if you count groups, this forum has done it's share. Hostile, childish, tunnel visioned partisan manure from BOTH sides of the political spectrum. I personally view Mr Limbaugh as an ass and I have a hard time believing the following he has. I do not however, wish him harm, nor his liberal counterparts. These extremists, both left and right are significant only to those who cannot think for themselves.

After ten plus years on the internet discussing politics I have found liberals to be the most obnoxious lot one would ever encounter.

Lets all hope that Rush has a speedy recovery so you silly libs have something more to whine about.

In the mean time, any socialist here thinking about relocating? I thought not.

Plenty of places to enjoy your utopia but you rather cozy up right here in the USA and enjoy the benefits.

Just remember, wealth has to be created in order for it to be redistributed.

bobbys’ remark “Interesting that the same people calling for Rush Limbaugh to die are the same people who ask to control health care” [72] is the sort of poisonous disgrace for which he should apologize.

Perhaps I did not read every sentence with adequate care, but I recall no libs on this Forum wishing Limbaugh death. Most, while expressing distaste for his poisonous hate speech still hoped for his recovers. All made clear than they wished ill health on no one though several withheld active sympathy noting how much his personal habits contributed to his condition, ala George Roberts in different contexts about different people.

Either bobbys decided to remark without reading anything on this thread or he or she has willfully chosen a very low road. I am disappointed that Donn’s subsequent remarks appear to support bobbys in this and I hope I have misinterpreted him.

My Dear Paul,

Well, there’s posts 2,3,4,7,8,24,36,52,70 etc that show liberals being clear how distasteful they find Limbaugh even as they wish his health better.

There’s some with a notable lack of sympathy, ranging from “Wouldn’t bother me. . .” [19] to stuff you find in 31,41, 50, 67, & 68. No death prayers and not even ill-health prayers. Just observations, some a bit wry, about habits and consequences.

The posts I’ve not mentioned do not, as I read them, address any hope about Limbaugh’s health one way or the other but perhaps you can find and cite something sinister that I have missed.

G’luck

The wetland grasses are doing well. I've had to do a bit of extra irrigation off and on, but they're saltwater tolerant, so I just pump water out of the canal, into their bogs, and let it drain back into the canal. Low voltage pumps, with solar panels for power handled it all. I amended the muck to hold more water, and it seems to be working.

G'day Donn, the cricket was a bit of a fizzer eh? I'm interested in those solar pumps, what capacity are they, and a brand would be handy.

The Sedges are doing wonderfully. Carex seems to like my climate. I've been experimenting with some zone-denial varieties, and they recently emerged from well over a foot of snow, looking just fine. We'll see how they handle the cold weather to come. I actually hoped the snow cover would stay on them, for insulation, but it all disappeared abruptly.

My dad grew up out here on the prairie ten miles from where I sit. So did my mother. But she was not a wop. She was Irish.

Really? Why not SWIMPAL?

I suspect Donn overlooked this question, but I think it deserves an answer. SWIMPAL is/was the name Dave (Fleming) called Mrs Fleming. I arrived here too late to learn all the nuances of discussion and terminology between O&O East and O&O West, (Donn and Fleming) but I struck up a friendship between Dave (and Penny) right off, including a lot of private exchanges of both information and gifts and Donn had those (with Dave and family) too, as I suspect many did. Dave was very generous with his friends.

The forum used to have a number of inner workings and relationships that have, quite understandably, changed or just disappeared with time (and I am not privy to all of them by any means). Nothing more or less than it's history.....you had to be here. New history is made everyday, as it should be and those who arrive in five years will be equally unknowing of some of our current relationships and turnings.

I am not sure myself exactly what "SWIMPAL" means or if it is even a term that was unique to Dave's usage, (unlike the more usual SWMBO, for example). Be that as it may, I learned from another poster shortly after Dave passed that "O&O" meant "Old and Ornery" the O&Os were alternately Donn and Dave (added: and a couple others?). I always thought Donn was a lot more ornery than Dave and usually he does little to dispel that, rather taking pride in his cutting style, but maybe Dave didn't share my opinion, and I'm sure he considered himself ornery too. Regardless, Dave's references to Penny were always as "SWIMPAL."

I am assuming Donn asks that the term be retired out of respect for his old friend. No disrespect to you at all, Cap, just an explanation of some of the conventions of days not so far gone by, but not visible to newer posters.

Myself? Never much cared for Rush's style and wouldn't mind seeing him retire from public view. I think he's one of the most biased, dishonest and self serving commentators/"politicians" on the scene, but some conservative folk will disavow his political connections and just claim him to be an entertainer when his going gets too thick for even the most committed partisans to avow. I don't wish him to die, just to stfu most of the time. I feel he has little regard for the truth or for intellectual integrity and so he represents much of what is wrong with America today; partisan shouting and bad manners as usual, with "being right" more important that being good.

01-01-2010, 02:04 PM
Dave and I had the same relationship, exchanging gifts etc, and I was designated an O & O.....Dave mentioned that he had misplaced his rigging knife one day....so I quietly sent him a Randall hand made one....and when he recieved it, he knew immediately what it was, which I didn't expect, as few people collect or know of such custom knife makers
SWIMPAL comes from the fact that Penny is quite the swimmer, and a very gracious lady, and quite a stunner in her bathing suit in her day.....and actually means "she who is my partner and lover"..
Penny has relocated from their previous home, and now lives in an apartment closer to their children.

I got a card from Penny awhile back (is it a year....more?) telling me of her move and acknowledging my friendship, and it was very nice and touching to get. I lost contact with her and thank you both, Mike and Chuck, for the news of her good health and her move closer to the family.

By the way, I still have both bottles of Guatemalan Ron Zaya, one from Chuckster, and one from Dave, and I don't know that I can ever drink either of them. Since you sent me the bottle Chuck, they discontinued it. It's now extinct, obsolete, unobtainium and sure to become collectible. But that's not why I am saving them/ holding back on them.

Then I shall continue to use SWIMPAL as a gesture of respect toward the late and missed Mr Fleming. I really wish I'd known the man; but who can call a man dead while his thoughts are still spoken?

I just ran this by Veronica before posting it. She actually got a little weepy and she thinks it's sweet. Sorry, Donn, I understand where you're coming from but this isn't going to change.

Well, that's it is, isn't it? He goes where the money is. And just where the money is.
Which makes his 'tudes particularly banal (if entirely understandable), and self-serving. As much as anything else, Rush is the ultimate example of that most unappealing sin: gluttony. Can't say I don't have a touch of it myself....so I may understand it better than most! Rush is about the money, ain't that so?

Maybe, maybe not. I don't know Al Gore's financial agenda and motivations well enough to speak to them one way or another, but you can start an "Al Gore is a self serving glutton" thread and see who kicks in, and who is first to mention Rush.

Rush is at a guess, a good example of a glutton, and since this thread carries his name, I can't see any reason not to point that out right here. When there's a Gore thread, we can all rip on him ;)

My biggest technical challenge it to keep the intake clear. I float it in a small bucket which can rise and fall with the tides, and keeps the intake a few inches below the surface. This way it isn't affected by floating Eelgrass or muck from the bottom.

The bogs are constructed to drain to the canal, so all I have to do is get the brackish canal water to the top of the bog, and Mother Nature takes care of the rest. Each is constructed with a pond liner, to keep the water from filtering away into the sandy soil below.

I use a similar technique sucking water from an earth dam ,sometimes a wire basket covered with something like mosquito netting is useful as it enlarges the filtering area .

BTW Donn ,Happy New Year .:)

Rush is about the money, ain't that so?It's certainly not really about the politics. Ol' Rush never voted until his mid-40s, after his talk show took off. Somebody called him on his [lack of a] voting record, so he (or his agent) felt that he really ought to actually vote.

I was way happier before I started listening to Rush and was a non-voter. I'm not sure voting helps much anyway. The country is tilted to the left so far the pumps will never right her.

Who would have thought that a topic so seemingly traditional as wooden boats would attract an overwhelming liberal constituency on it's main internet forum? But that seems to be the case.

Yes I do find that a bit odd. So many with enough dollars to buy , and maintain the proverbial "hole in the water into which one throws money" , you'd think more corperate big wigs , sole proprietors of successful small businesses would be more conserative with how tax dollars are spent.

Now I'm sure I'll get attacked by LIB-5 and elf , and others for my lack of concern , Glen Longo (sp) , leeg , TimH , I rowbot , or some other lib will tell me "I hate America" or some such. But what the heck eh. :D

Yes...my small buckets are drilled with 1/2" holes and lined with mosquito screen. They have styrofoam around the inside lip, and float with about 3" exposed and 6" submerged. They work well, except when the swans get curious about them and try to swim off with them. It's my own fault. I've kept buckets of freshwater out for them for years, so they think anything floating off my bulkhead is there for them.

Happy New Year to you, as well.

It still firmly right but has made a recent ,tiny shuffle toward the international centre .

The USA has no need to emulate Europe , or China, or for that matter Australia.

Rush Limbaugh's dope addiction is now out, no denying it, and for a person who has been through rehab for painkiller abuse, to have to tell the paramedics that he is on pain medication for his back, well, lots of addiction experts here, Rush is back on the dope.

Whats not out yet, but strongly suggested by his travels, is his sex-tourism thing, what with going to the Dominican Republic with a satchel of viagra, and his trip to Thailand, sex tourism central. Whether its little boys or little girls, Rush isn't going to these places for the mountain-climbing.

So does Hawaii have that available? That little trip he took a few years back was disturbing.

Why aren't you talking about racist statements attributed to Rush that he never made in the wake of his bid to own part of a football team?

Extremists lie, whether it's Rush, Metzger, Maddow, it doesn't matter.

There was an internet squib about with Limbaugh quotes. As it happened, that often excoriated as leftist truth and rumor site Scopes listed which of the quotes were falsely attributed and which Limbaugh actually said. Should anyone be interested:
http://www.snopes.com/politics/quotes/limbaugh.asp

But for this thread, that issue is irrelevant. The issue was the hospitalization and the controversy became some right-wing false allegations that the left hoped for Limbaugh’s death or illness. Folks who are not bigots can disagree with a person without praying for his or her illness. And without making up false points for argument.

It wouldn't bother me if he died.



It would be nice if they cut his tongue out......

I hope Rush gets discharged and gets word from that God he refers to that he doesn't have to do anything to change his personal habits.

Wishing death and/or illness one one's enemies ( real and/or percieved ) is a penchant that transcends politics, but it certainly has occurred in connection with Rush's latest brush with the medical profession.

While I agree with you entirely, it's hard for a gentleman to endorse Rush's tactics ( perhaps the same could be said of certain liberal spokespeople) but that is what creates the backdrop of ill will he swims in. The man uses his position as a bludgeon to define his "enemies" and in so doing he creates them. This is not a person who engenders feelings of compassion and so the outpouring of hate in return is a result. Neither does he, by any reasonable standard, promote tolerance of thought or open expression, rather being one who enjoys lambasting his opponents from his inexplicably successful bully pulpit.

What might we expect in return for such a polarizing figure, however misplaced those sentiments might be?

Compare to, say, William F Buckley as a legit spokesman of his times.

In post 88 I specifically referenced 9 posts actively wishing Mr. Limbaugh health while noting what was found distasteful about Mr. Limbaugh. I referenced another 6 posts that did not actively wish Limbaugh ill but sardonically noted the consequences of his habits and/or expressed profound indifference to wishing him anything at all. Some of these are quoted without citation in post 140. The extracted parts of the bits I don’t off-hand recognize don’t recognize do not convince me that the poster is correct in thinking these are active ill will, certainly not of the order of Sen Coburn’s prayer request. The one’s I had already cited of course I already know the whole and don’t find any truth to the allegation that these are the same as praying for illness or death.

In the fifty posts after that and before #140, I didn’t see anything actually wishing Limbaugh ill though some language has become more sardonic, some more deliberately provocative. Getting more escalated, while perhaps not all that tasteful is not too surprising with the spirited economy of truth with which Limbaugh’s defenders have tried to mask how liberals don’t need to vent anger with invented stuff, so much truth being so readily at hand.

How many have secretly wished it? How many closet death wishers are out there? I think many. But what more can you get from a wish that you can't get from a prayer. Both just burn a couple calories, and do more internal harm to oneself. Ulcers of hate.

There is a difference between wishing those that one dislikes illness or physical harm, and wishing that they might suffer the consequences of their actions.

Mr. Limbaugh has become a celebrity and made a huge lot of money with lying, scapegoating, and generally distorting reality to fit his cramped and vicious outlook, and has never been shy about wishing harm to those he dislikes.

I think he deserves humiliation, disgrace, embarrassment, ridicule, disdain, and avoidance. And I hope he suffers that self-inflicted fate in robust health and complete awareness, for a very long time indeed.
