AND NOW . . . amidst billowing clouds of fragrant, aromatic first- and second-hand premium cigar smoke. . . it is time for . . . that harmless, lovable little fuzz ball, the highly-trained broadcast specialist, having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have, from behind the golden EIB microphone, firmly ensconced in the prestigious Attila-the-Hun chair at the Limbaugh Institute of Advanced Conservative Studies, with talent on loan from G-d, at the cutting-edge of societal evolution, with half his brain tied behind his back just to make it fair, the all-knowing, all-caring, all-sensing, all-feeling, Maha-Rushie! America's Anchorman, Truth Detector, Doctor of Democracy, and Chief of the Patriotism Police. He is the man who runs America. He knows the Democrats like every square inch of his glorious naked body. He is ready to do what he was born to do--That's host. Get ready to what you were born to do--That's listen (and post your comments on the Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Thread).

here on a good day for freedom, for a change.
flying bullet is here, celebrating the SCOTUS affirmation of the Constitution...
Fishes with Dynamite lurks in tall weeds with gun and heap big smile =)
Scalia’s opinion was fantastic!
When can I get a concealed carry permit?
Second amendment upheld. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2036633/posts
I’ll just wipe a little sweat off my brow, celebrate (mildly) and stand by for the next power grab. Nice to know that somebody can still read, comprehend and express themselves with clarity.
MSM’s going to go bugnuts. ROFLMAO
For those of us who’s ancestors were killed in St. Clair’s war.. your words are chilling!
‘runs with reagan’ here
Ruling has nothing to do with CCW. However, I believe that it will become important in future cases regarding CCW issues.
Just a few months after moving here to Texas.
And since Obama's attempting a little revisionist history, from April...

I am not a lawyer nor have I ever stayed at any Holiday Inn!
I had one when I lived in Indiana. I had one when I lived in Kentucky.
This ruling should support the prohibition here.
Extraneous Wind, checking in while I clean my firearms. I’m going to treat them to a box of the expensive ammo in celebration. Scalia pwns Stevens, eviscerates him in the Heller Opinion. W00t!
Does the Constitution only work in Texas?!!!!
Who would you rather have nominate judges?
McQueeg or Omama?
Thanks for the ping; Going to have to share Rush’s last hour with Tammy Bruce; Lt. Col. Allen West will be on Tammy’s show at 2:30 Yeah.
Reading through Scalia’s opinion on Heller right now. This is one of the most clear cut opinions I have read. Didn’t bother with the dissents, yet. (157 pages is a lot to read; especially for a blonde *LOL*)
Can’t wait to hear Rush.
Texas - What America used to be like
That’s what’s so frightening - that four “Supremes” (read supreme IDIOTS) actually think it’s okay to throw our rights out the window because... well, because they feel like it.
Leftists follow their own anti-American instincts first, and don’t give a damn about fairness, the law, or the Constitution. They’re not fit to serve in the Government, and they’re certainly not fit to be put in a position where they’re given the power to force anyone to do ANYTHING.
Should be a great few hours of Rush today. I’m looking forward to it :-).
Reporting for duty!
The money quote from Scalia;
“But the enshrinement of constitutional rights necessarily takes certain policy choices off the table. These include the absolute prohibition of handguns held and used for self-defense in the home. Undoubtedly some think that the Second Amendment is outmoded in a society where our standing army is the pride of our Nation, where well-trained police forces provide personal security, and where gun violence is a serious problem. That is perhaps debatable, but what is not debatable is that it is not the role of this Court to pronounce the Second Amendment extinct.
We affirm the judgment of the Court of Appeals.
It is so ordered.”
Well, even if everything goes south this coming election cycle it’s good to know that we’ve still got access to the reset button.
Is it my imagination or? Free Republic has been painfully slow again today for me.
Yeah. There seem to still be a bunch of problems with the new server.
I’m not voting FOR McCain....I’m voting AGAINST Osama Obama, thanks to the RINOs within the GOP who didn’t “get it” during the primaries...by voting against the Conservative candidates they left us with two DUmocrats.
Time to go out and buy “The Judge”, Taurus’s 5-shot revolver that will fire .410 shotgun shells or .45 cal ammo.
Obamas Efforts to Fund the Self-Described Most Aggressive Group in the Gun Control Movement
Yesterday I wrote that despite Barack Obamas claims that he believes in the Second Amendment, is a friend to gun owners, never supported a complete ban on handguns (despite a questionnaire from early in his career stating he did), etc., those claims are hard to balance with his approval of Chicagos effective ban on handguns. In Obama’s entire time in the city, theres no record of him ever objecting to it.
Obamas audacity on this issue goes even further.
Obama was named a director of the Joyce Foundation in late 1994, and remained in that position until late 2002.
During Obamas tenure with the Joyce Foundation, donations to anti-gun groups increased dramatically. For example, in 1997 and 1998 the Violence Policy Center received $221,000 and $360,000 from the Foundation; those grants and donations increased to $1 million in 2000 and $800,000 in 2002. In all, during Obamas tenure, the group received $15 million from the Joyce Foundation.
The Violence Policy Center, despite its name, never seems all that concerned with beatings, stabbings, immolations or explosions. No, theyre completely focused on gun violence, and they can effectively be called an anti-gun or pro-gun control organization.
Lest anyone think Im mischaracterizing their objective analysis, note that their web site touts themselves as the most aggressive group in the gun control movement. Also note studies like their one from 2000 entitled, Unsafe in Any Hands: Why America Needs to Ban Handguns, which declared the idea that the Constitution would forbid a national handgun ban a pure myth. Also note the organizations subtly-titled book, Every Handgun is Aimed at You: The Case for Banning Handguns.)
Its not just the VPC. The Joyce Foundation also provided several large grants to the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, which can also be safely described as an anti-gun or pro-gun control organization. Besides their role in litigation designed to change the way guns are designed, marketed, distributed, and sold, the center perpetually argued that guns in the home were more dangerous than protective.
In 1996, the foundation Obama directed approved $662,525 in grants to the Johns Hopkins Center, and by 2001, they gave another $600,000.
In the wake of todays ruling, youre going to hear Barack Obama claim passionately that he believes in the Second Amendment and that he is a friend to gun owners. It will be interesting to see how he can rectify that with his efforts to fund books like Every Handgun is Aimed at You: The Case for Banning Handguns.

Better today than previous couple days.
I’m accessing via a large pipe, so network latency isn’t an issue.
I hope Rush gets it. I’m sure he’ll cover it but I’ve
never known him to be a big firearms advocate.
Seems like he contracts that out.
McCAIN ANNOUNCES ANTI-GUN SHOW CAMPAIGN WILL BE REVIVED IN JANUARY
Wrestles with RINO’s here hoorah for the Supreme Court.
Newspaper staff layoffs == Obama campaign staff.
Vote against Osama Obama! That's the ticket!
Hook or crook I'm glad you're on board.
Good GRIEF what is wrong with this man?
He's a DUmocrat...that's what causes his brain malfunctions.
If McCain wins this, it will be in spite of himself.
Hi everyone...Rush is dead on about the SCOTUS judges and the fact that the 2nd Amendment even came up for scrutiny.
Rush is making an excellent point about the SCOTUS and our freedoms.
I have high speed cable, too - so have no problem loading most other web pages. GRRR!
McLoon likes to play both sides, so all his bases are covered.
Indeed- in fact- it will be that Obama loses- not that McCain wins.
