I gotta head to home despot after the show and get up on the roof before the next system comes in.

Rosie OWNDonnel Pwned! Okra on the ropes! Oh Noes!
Its hilarious that Rush survives and thrives through Slutgate while Okras network is on the ropes LoL!
Rush wants us to follow him on Twitter and re-tweet his tweets. One of us will win a new i-Pad with Rush’s EIB engraving on it.
For those who haven’t signed up on Twitter yet, here are some great tips on how to use it:

MICHELLE MALKIN LAUNCHES CUTTING-EDGE TWITTER CURATION WEBSITE
HotAir.com founder recruits new team for newswire of the 21st century
Colorado Springs, Col., March 7 Leading new media entrepreneur Michelle Malkin today announced the launch of TWITCHY.COM, a ground-breaking entrant in the Twitter curation/aggregation space. The founder of powerhouse blogs MichelleMalkin.com (established 2004) and HotAir.com (established 2006 and sold to Salem Communications in 2010) has recruited a savvy team of editors from across the country to staff the new must-read website.
TWITCHY.COM is a ground-breaking Twitter curation site powered by a kinetic staff of social media junkies, Malkin said. Were mining Twitter to bring you who said what in U.S. politics, global news, sports, entertainment, media, and breaking news 24/7.
Malkin added: If its news, TWITCHY.COM is on it. If it should be news, TWITCHY.COM is ahead of it.
Round-the-clock TWITCHY.COM editors will bring readers buzz-worthy tweets, reactions, and memes long before traditional media outlets decide its breaking. Unlike the current generation of Twitter aggregators, TWITCHY.COM will be driven by an eclectic mix of human curators whose judgment cant be replicated by computer algorithms.
TWITCHY.COM is the newswire of the 21st century, Malkin explained. Were always wired. Never static. And were completely freed from slow-moving, obsolete corporate media restraints and biases against non-traditional sources of news.
From plane crashes and earthquakes, to political scandals and Hollywood catfights, to democracy revolutions abroad and the death of Osama bin Laden, more and more users get their news from Twitter.
TWITCHY.COM cuts through the noise and sifts through massive amounts of data to keep both casual news consumers and consummate newshounds up to speed. Whether youre a Twitter addict or a Twitter newbie, TWITCHY.COM will become a central part of your go-to, daily Internet diet, Malkin promised.
Twitter is the online social network and microblogging service with more than 100 million active users and an estimated half-billion registered users worldwide. Celebrities, media moguls, journalists, political leaders, business executives, and athletes share the global messaging platform with ordinary citizens who trade scoops, gossip, jokes, photos, and video in real time to the tune of 290 million tweets per day.
Bump for Oprah living in the real world.
Looks like mylife may have solved the mystery. I don't do twitter OR facebook. :-( Doubt I ever will.
“Bump for Oprah living in the real world.”
It’s a start, but only the first baby-step on her long, long journey back to the world of reality. After all, she is still endorsing Obama.
High winds blew down a section of my fence night before last, and it was braced with buttresses, too. Still blowing hard today—my second-least favorite thing about Colorado (first is the permanent drought).
Last summer it was mega drought here, now I’m flooded.
In 3 months it will be drought again.
The good news is 4 purple Iris popped up yesterday, the bad news is the storm knocked 3 of them down LoL
Rush is right.
If you cant fly a jet with a payload on it, its bogus.
We are using biofuels to do that but its not cost effective.
Listening to Rush on Streaming Internet - 770 WABC New York. Why are there blank spaces where the commercials ought to be? Just silence. Is this a result of lost advertisers?
Thank-you for posting this Rush thread. :)=^..^=
"Get Stephan Chu on the hotline!"
Thank you for posting this thread. I thought I just couldn’t find it.
I have a question about the ipad giveaway. Do you need to retweet or is just being a follower enough to enter one in the contest?
Its probably a problem with WABC’s stream.
I got tons of commercials on WBAP via the mighty AM airwaves.
Often streams on the internet don’t have the commercials the airways do.
Ipad giveaway rules:
They usually do.
I post the Gun Talk Radio thread with streaming from KIDO.
Normally they have the commercials but often the stream gets fouled and they lose the local feed along with the commercials.
That beats the opposite!
Though it gets annoying because you think you lost the stream when there is dead air.
I read them. I couldn’t tell.
Hiya BG; YW! Are you on Twitter also (see post 3 and 9)? This giveaway is going to go on “for at least a week,” according to Rush. :-(
At least I hope that someone from FR wins one, but it will not be me.
My eyes hurt from the “small print” LOL
I did decide to follow Rush. Will check out the Twitter feed. :)
Mrs S got the new iPad over the weekend. It’s lighter and she can use a wireless printer with it but i don’t think the resolution is all that dramatically special.
Lacking in logic Oprah is.
I volunteer to win one for the team.
Just imagine what you'd experience if you were to move to the Louisville/Broomfield area (up around Rocky Flats).
No big difference in annual lack of precipitation....you are, after all, smack in the middle of what could reasonably be called The Great American Desert, but the wind out "on The Flats" can get plumb wicked.
Standing joke in the area refers to a Rocky Flats Windgage, which is a ten-foot length of logging chain suspended from a stout pole set in the ground.
If the chain is vertical, there's no wind.
When it's horizontal, there's a little bit of a breeze.
When chain, pole and all are gone, the wind's just starting to blow hard.
(Yeah, I used to live there. Lost count of the number of fences I had to replace as well as the times that I had to replant seedling pines that that **** wind had blown completely out of the ground.....and it ain't much better in some places in Montana.)
How much was it? why is it significantly better than a $200 Kindle? What are the service fees?
I had checked both the Rush Twitter feed, nothing there, and his website. Had gone to a luncheon today, adding also the day today is gorgous outside. Did he annouced a contest? Thanks!:)=^..^=
Why does eating have to be ethical?
What a farce!
It has 4G and it’s as fast as FiOS. You can print like I said before. The 64meg can hold about 64 HD movies. Has a fancy camera/video. You can Skype or iChat with it. Bunch of other stuff.
It’s $829 for 64 GB not meg.
I use skype a lot.
That would be nice.
I think I prefer a laptop most of the time but a pad with skype would be nice for travel because its small and you really dont need to worry about typing.
Plug in the earphones turn on the camera and talk.
Ouch. That’s pricey
I could get a new AR10 for that!
I thought AR10s were over 2K? I’ll be reminding Mrs S of that.
Idiot on the phone!
I had a scoped OD green armalite in my hot little hands a few years ago for $850.
A guy at the shop talked me out of it. I think its at his house now LoL
Then I found a DPMS with the stainless target barrel and bipod for 1200 but i decided it was to heavy.
Tom told us the other week that several companys plan to bring out Ar10 platforms in the next month.
I expect this will drop prices due to competition
Keep an eye out for values in the near future.
But they aint cheap to feed.
“Mrs S got the new iPad over the weekend. Its lighter and she can use a wireless printer with it”
Nice! Family keeps asking me if I want an Ipad. So far “no.” Wireless printer capability is a good start. I either print, type or send emails to myself based on the relevancy of what I am reading, so I don’t see it as a benefit thus far....But, then again, I am slow on the uptake with the latest tech gadgets. I still despise cell phones. A fast, light mega-capacity laptop is my only requirement.
Are you on Twitter?
OT: I still think Rush is struggling, no matter what he says. He jumps from subject to subject. First, he needs to preserve his “kingdom,” but then we need him to keep his eye on the ball-—even more so as we get through these next months. That requires contemplation and reflection, and Rush is a little off his game, IMO.
“The good is often enemy to the best.” Now is the time to be focused like a laser-—i.e., Levin and Plante. We need Rush to keep candidates’, Congressmen’s, and citizens’ feet to the fire.
Smart kid on the phone
Twitter Ipad giveaway “contest”— one per day for at least the next week, if not longer, according to Rush. See post 26 for details. It is a random drawing, if I understand correctly.
Rush reassures this teens self doubt and bolsters him.
YOU are the future!
