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, 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, 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. 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).
That candle was lit 30 minutes ago. Tardy slip please!
Barack Obama’s Stealth Socialism
Sen. Obama repeated the term at least four times. “I’ve been working my entire adult life to help build an America where economic justice is being served,” he said at the group’s 99th annual convention in Cincinnati.
And as president, “we’ll ensure that economic justice is served,” he asserted. “That’s what this election is about.” Obama never spelled out the meaning of the term, but he didn’t have to. His audience knew what he meant, judging from its thumping approval.
I think this is closer than most people believe. Consider these catalysts, all extremely plausible under an Obamunist Regime:
1) Private 401k's confiscated to prop up the Ponzi Scheme known as Social Security;
2) The election process permamently rigged for Dem'Rat victories. This is exactly what the ACORN campaign is trying to do this election, by specifically targeting 11 battleground states with massive voter fraud operations. If they get away with it this year, why would we not expect them to do it EVERY election;
3) Nationalizing Health Care means those in control of the guv'mint bureacracy can use it to punish their political opponents. Just look at what the Left has done to Joe the Plumber and Sarah Palin's family. Imagine if they controlled your kid's access to medical care;
4) The Unfairness Doctrine: Shutting down the Alternative Media and returning monopoly control of the Media to the Left;
5) The Supreme Court packed with fellow Marxists by Obama. Say "Hello" to a Super Legislature immune to voter influence.
With free speech and the normal political process shut down to Conservatives, what outlet for political change would remain other than at the point of a gun?
Obama has the philosophy of the United States constitution confused with the philosophy USSR constitution.
Thank you. I come into the radio threads, and it’s mostly jibber jabber about ten thousands OTHER things in the news or whatever.
I am at the office and want to know what Rush is talking about too!
“...most live that oath with a conviction that most of us couldn’t even imagine.”
Got a couple Jarheads down the road who would fight me for “who’s got more”.
...after we take care of that bit about “enemies, both foreign AND domestic” that we have obviously muffed.
Obama wants a national Mount Laurel law like we have in New Jersey.
We are so SCREWED if the ANTI-0christ gets elected! Gosh, I don’t even think this BOMBSHELL will have any affect! The majority of folk are totally in the tank! We are in the eve of destruction for our country. God help Us.
This essay is a must-read on the air:
Back atcha, my FRiend!
No need for you to burn up over this.
I can see your temper flickering.
Obama’s biggest problem with the US Constitution is that it was written by white men!
LATE EDITION (CNN) : John McCain Interview
McCain Democrats insisted on agreeing to tax increases before we sat down
No temper flickering, it is all good....
Don’t sweat the candle chat. It should taper off.
Frank Marshall Davis taught Obama....
You notice how he just wants to snuff it out.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The concept of negative liberty refers to freedom from interference by other people. According to Thomas Hobbes, “a free man is he that in those things which by his strength and wit he is able to do is not hindered to do what he hath the will to do.” (Leviathan, Ch. XXI, )
The distinction between negative and positive liberty was drawn by Isaiah Berlin in his lecture “Two Concepts of Liberty.” According to Berlin, the distinction is deeply embedded in the political tradition. The notion of negative liberty is associated with British philosophers such as Locke, Hobbes, and Adam Smith, and positive liberty with continental thinkers, such as Hegel, Rousseau, Herder, and Marx.
In Berlin’s words, “liberty in the negative sense involves an answer to the question: ‘What is the area within which the subject a person or group of persons is or should be left to do or be what he is able to do or be, without interference by other persons’.” Restrictions on negative liberty are imposed by a person, not by natural causes or incapacity. Helvetius expresses the point clearly: “The free man is the man who is not in irons, nor imprisoned in a gaol, nor terrorized like a slave by the fear of punishment ... it is not lack of freedom not to fly like an eagle or swim like a whale.”
The distinction between positive and negative liberty is considered specious by socialist and Marxist political philosophers, who argue that positive and negative liberty are indistinguishable in practice, or that one cannot exist without the other.
Interestingly enough, Frankfurt School psychoanalyst and humanistic philosopher Erich Fromm drew a similar distinction between negative and positive freedom in his 1941 work, The Fear of Freedom, that predates Berlin’s essay by more than a decade. Fromm sees the distinction between the two types of freedom emerging alongside humanity’s evolution away from the instinctual activity that characterizes lower animal forms. This aspect of freedom, he argues, “is here used not in its positive sense of ‘freedom to’ but in its negative sense of ‘freedom from’, namely freedom from instinctual determination of his actions.” For Fromm, then, negative freedom marks the beginning of humanity as a species conscious of its own existence free from base instinct.
As my grandfather would say, Obama is an “EDUCATED IDIOT!”
Jibber jabber, jibber jabber, jibber jabber, jibber jabber...
A lot of times a currently read post is used to reply on a thread, especially a long thread, I do it frequently, welcome to the digital jungle, you will learn more here than anywhere else, and, your input is going to be a part of that experience for others
He must be burning it at both ends.
Stop being hysterical! We’re doing GREAT! Don’t make me slap you. LOL.
“Ask Not what your govt can do for you ... Demand it!”
Besides, the “top 5%” floor is $175k, and the top 5% already pays between 55% and 60% of federal income tax revenues.
His numbers simply will not add up. I doubt Obama is bright enough to even know this.
It's the demagoguery, stupid!
Obama will be to the U.S. what Germanicus was to Rome: The Beginning of the End.
uh-oh, now you’re burnt up!
I was trying to explain to someone over the weekend just how obammy would mangle the Constitution. I didn’t convince them. *SIGH*
this reminds me of my law professors.
true refugees from the real world were desperate to justify their hippie radical protesting past.
I believe that if we could get our hands on his thesis, this would be his subject.
“Redistribution is the easiest part of socialism. It’s what comes after that’s scary!”
A few years ago, those of us who participated in daily Rush threads, did try and sum up every couple dozen posts or so for all those who could not listen in, and we commented on the points Rush was making.
Eventually, people gave up participating because the threads became overwhelmed with a little too much chit-chat.
Turn that Obama logo upside down and it looks quite a bit alike.
Rush! What makes you think Obamunist will take the oath of office on the bible???? Once he’s elected, he can stop the charade of his being a Christian.
LATE EDITION (CNN) : Donna Brazille
Brazille spell out in vivid details [ admitting no substance, CNN: edit this clip ]
Brazille on CNN yesterday admitted Øbama still hasn’t given any details to his plan
If Bush is Hitler, then Obama is surely Stalin. The premise is false, but I’m certain the conclusion is true.
LATE EDITION (CNN) : James Carvelle[CNN gets out their big gun]
Carvelle eggheads pointing at the ditto heads
Could this new tape be the REAL OCTOBER SUPRISE?
Here is a better differentiation of positive and negative liberty (more from wikipedia)...
“The positive notion of liberty plays a crucial, yet almost always implicit, role in many major political philosophies, such as direct democracy, socialism, and communism.
In contrast to negative liberty, which in its largest scope applies to individuals, positive liberty has often been applied by collectivist philosophies to whole segments of society or to a nation’s society as a whole.”
Rush needs to mention that these are known political terms that describe vastly different political philosophies... Positive Liberty mostly equates to socialism and maxism...
