The Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Show Thread - Thursday, February 17, 2011
The EIB Network ^ | 02/17/2011 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 02/17/2011 8:25:44 AM PST by IMissPresidentReagan

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, serving humanity simply by showing up, and he’s not retiring until every American agrees with him, do NOT doubt him, with shrieks of joy at the mere mention of his name (that’s Rush, for those in Rio Linda),the Mandarin of Talk Radio, 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, all-concerned Maha-Rushie! America’s anchorman, truth detector, and doctor of democracy. A Real Man, a living legend, a way of life. Commander in Chief of U.S. Operation Chaos. Chief Waga-Waga El Rushbo of the El Conservo Tribe. Chief of the Patriotism Police. Leader of the Conservative Movement. A Weapon of Mass Instruction. El Rushbo (a little Spanish lingo, there). He is the man who is running America (you know it and I know it). 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).

FYI

US state scrutinizes Google search tactics
Feb 17 09:46 AM US/Eastern
http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=CNG.ed01c1f733f7929c0e0ee596f28a0c53.d1&show_article=1

The top attorneyfor the state of Texas on Wednesday revealed a list of dem...

The top attorney for the state of Texas on Wednesday revealed a list of demands for inside information intended to ferret out whether Google abused its power in the online search ad arena.

Texas attorney general Greg Abbott wanted names of people responsible for Google ads, search results, and business relations along with internal documents and minutes from meetings at the California firm.

The “civil investigative demand” paperwork dated July 29 of last year stated the intent was to investigate “the possibility of monopolization in the market for Internet search advertising.”

Abbott’s office would not discuss whether Google had complied with the demands.

“We’re continuing to work with the Texas attorney general’s office to answer their questions and understand any concerns,” Google said in an email response to an AFP inquiry.

“Since we started Google we have worked hard to do the right thing by our users and our industry, and while there?s always going to be room for improvement, we’re committed to competing fair and square.”

Google is focused on delivering the most relevant results and ads to users, said deputy counsel Don Harrison who disclosed Abbott’s antitrust inquiry more than five months ago in a blog post.

“Our focus is on users, not websites,” Harrison said.

“Given that not every website can be at the top of the results, or even appear on the first page of our results, it’s unsurprising that some less relevant, lower quality websites will be unhappy with their ranking.”

The more than 50 requests itemized on three pages included any documents related to the manual override of search results generated by Google’s automated algorithm, as well as the blacklisting of any websites.

Google’s dominance of the multi-billion-dollar online search market has put it in crosshairs of regulators concerned it might abuse its position.

The US Justice Department is reportedly considering a court challenge to Google’s $700 million acquisition of travel information company ITA Software.

Federal antitrust lawyers were said to be examining whether acquiring ITA, which powers many of the Web’s most popular travel sites, would give the Internet search giant too much sway over the online travel industry.

Online travel firms have urged the US authorities to block the deal.

ITA, a 500-person firm based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, specializes in organizing airline data, including flight times, availability and prices.

Its QPX flight data organization tool uses algorithms to combine flight information from airlines, including pricing and availability, to create a searchable database.

QPX software is used by online travel agencies and airlines. Microsoft’s Bing search engine, Kayak, Orbitz and TripAdvisor are ITA customers.

Italy’s antitrust authority in January closed a probe into Google for alleged abuse of its market position, saying it accepted pledges made by the search engine to provide greater transparency.

European Union regulators in November launched a full-frontal attack on Google, formally opening an antitrust probe after rivals accused the Silicon Valley giant of rigging the online search market.

Smaller companies accused Google of “unfavorable treatment” of their services in both unpaid and sponsored search results, the crucial listings that make the Web navigable.

I hope Rush mentions the media meltdown in FL (well, at least in Tampa) over our Governor canceling the high-speed rail boondoggle. The main argument I saw was “but it was going to be paid for mostly by the Federal government”, as if FL taxpayers would not feel any burden.

I could be wrong, but I think many people are starting to realize that the government can't keep promising that “somebody else” will pay for it.

Yes, how oppressive these evil Republican governors are, actually trying to hold unions accountable.

They’re actually out there saying they’re ‘oppressed.’ Having to do without a second or third big screen TV or putting off a new SUV for another year is SO oppressive . . .

Apparently Justin Beiber isn't one of them. He thinks that Canadian Health Care is "free".

You should hear the libs here rant and rave about the Tea Party. Apparently, because Kentucky receives so much money from the Federal government, we should forget our principles.

lol.

I told one lib that if you don’t stand for something even when it potentially negatively impacts you, you really don’t have principles at all.

I have a question for you freepers...

Do you remember some time ago that Rush referred to homeless communities which were forming in places around the country (Hawaii?) as “Obamavilles?” The media was blaming Bush for the homeless shanty encampments on Bush, and Rush discussed it in the context of Obama’s policies. What ever happened to all of the Obamaville residents? I never heard whether they got their free living arrangements?

Just wondering...
