Skip to comments.Limbaugh Finally Gets It
Posted on 08/03/2011 4:55:33 PM PDT by Gritty
So this afternoon I'm going to the tag office to renew my vehicle tags, and I have Rush on the radio. I must have been touched by God or something, because just as I turned it on he started with a long monologue on how everything we've had for the last 20 years has been fake.
Cars, houses, flatscreen TVs, unlimited medical care for the poor, Medicare, etc, you name it - all fake.
Oh sure, the car, the TV and the doctor are real - you can touch them. But we never paid for them. We borrowed more and more money.
In short, Rush woke up to the reality of this:
Yes, he put a nasty partisan spin on it but you have to give the devil his due - he finally awoke from his long slumber. For the last several years I've wanted to smash the radio whenever he has gone on his "Republicans good, Democrats bad" mantra when it comes to deficits, taxes and spending.
Well, not today. Oh sure, today he had to say "Obama has been worse", but that's to be expected.
But he acknowledged - for the first time I've heard on his broadcasts - that what we've been doing, and are still continuing to do, not only hasn't worked but can't.
The people are waking up. Oh, it's slow, but they're doing it. And the small number who are awake and really, really *****ed off are going to turn into a very large number of extremely *****ed-off Americans in short order.
With good cause.
We've been sold a bill of goods in America...

“First off, Karl, Rush bashes Reublicans all the time”
In the past not enough. Guys like Sean Hannity are in a quandry, he carried the bucket for GW way to long, but now he faces losing a large portion of his audience if he plays the game of ‘this is the best we could hope for’.
Didn’t Bammy tell the bankers once he was the only thing between them and the pitchforks?
Because it's true, moron.
Take a "nasty partisan spin" on this.
First off, Karl, Rush bashes Reublicans all the time.
I agree with the writer. He didn't do it enough to suit me, and was the exact reason I stopped listening to Rush regularly, about 5 years ago.
We're all being had by both parties. They're good at, "Roping dopes" and attracting the easily led.
Rush was very critical of W (spending, new entitlements, immigration) and Bush Sr (taxes), he even supported Pat Buchanan in one of the primaries.
During 1930’s US gov forced gold owners to sell their gold to US gov. It did not include personal jewelry, religious icons and historical coins. If those items were made illegal, then all jewelry stores will go out of business, churches must turn over their crosses and museums must close their coin displays. The reason FDR seized the gold because the well to do converted their paper certificates into gold bullion and were shipping it out of the US. Since our money was backed by gold that was not good for the US financially, so the feds stepped in and put a stop to that by forcing US citizens to turn in their gold certificates for federal reserve notes, US gold coins, and gold bullion and be paid at $ 16 per ounce.
Today our money is not backed by gold. It would have to be a drastic reason to take privately owned gold without compensation. Majority of the gold is owned by central banks and not private citizens.
It is funny to find Limbaugh once again put in his place (suuuuure he is) by someone with 1/1000th of Limbaugh`s ability and 1/1,000,000th his audience.
It would be theft. Armed robbery. I would hope people would resist by all means.
How critical ya going to be after W's Dad let him spend the night in the Lincoln Bedroom, even carried his bags, and several years later, W throws birthday party for him.
That kind of treatment might've affected your judgment.
But I'm not aware that it affected Rush's.
He gave W. a pretty hard time during his second term. Deservedly so.
Not saying that Rush hasn’t ever been against the higher ups in the Republican party, but he does seem to be “getting it” more and more.
The other day he, himself admitted that years ago, he brushed off people’s concern about the national debt. He now gets it.
I guess he’s realized that the establishment elites want to bankrupt and enslave ALL of us, him included.
Not so much. My big complaint about Rush has been that he wastes time preaching to the choir about the Devil, which only makes the choir smug and doesn't bother the Devil at all. In the last few years he's been telling the choir about the sins of the Church Fathers (the GOP establishment), though, and there he can really have an effect.
Hmmmm, I think you might have it just backwards. By the time the fog clears and the dust settles, the money changers will own America. THEY play second fiddle to no one.
Good quote. My guess is if Mr. Clemens could come back to our times he would most certainly be amazed and would recognize practically nothing... Except Congress.
And so it will continue until we truly are 100% bankrupt, with everyone out of work, infrastructure crumbling, the old and sick truly not being cared for, and finally a Fascist or Communist dictatorship or some kind of mutation between the two ruling every aspect of our lives. It's getting closer by the minute.
Obama thinks he’s going to double-cross them in the end. He has no idea what he’s up against. They plan to own America when he’s done and they’re through with him, and he thinks the exact opposite.
Very well said. I would add something that might not at first be obvious but it does tie in with the “class struggle”. That is, the solid middle and upper middle class are populated by a large number of small to medium business owners. The destruction of small to medium business is part and parcel of their plan. The population of small business owners are probably mostly conservative and present a problem of too many loose cannons to the ruling class. Much easier to control a few mega corporations than a bunch of mom and pop operations so they’ll have to go.
My mistake; you DO get it. ;^)
“The people are waking up.”
Not fast enough. We’ve got two to six years to persuade 51% of Americans to make a massive change. A hundred years of progressivism has taken us so far away from natural economic relationships with each other that the difference has become profound.
for us...I guess we'll keep working....but I'm determined to use bloated tax schemes if I can figure any out for our income...and if it gets unbearable, we'll just quit, live off what we have, and stop feeding the beast...
it can’t be shouted out loud enough that the rats controlled the HOUSE and the SENATE in 2006...2 yrs before the meltdown.....
If they get to where they are in complete charge of a society that has no industry and no economy and no ambition and no future ...except to maybe violently take it back, what have they gained?
The fact is, most elected Republicans, think exactly like Democrats when they are in Washington. And that’s a real problem.
You think it wasn't a mistake?
...Limbaugh and Hannity were shills for Bush and the GOP. That was then. They finally came around. Good! But, they best be careful and not try to say this is what they always believed. If they do, not only are they wrong, they're LIARS!!!
...Don't try it, guys...
Looks like Karl was just putting his “partisan spin on it” so I guess we have to “give the devil his due”... what a putz! Karl is the kid who peed the bed and is trying to blame his brother by telling Mom he tried to get him to go to the bathroom! He’s “I told you so” as he marches off the cliff.
That's where UN Agenda 21 comes in.
They want to reduce the population of the earth to 150-million people so they can live in a pristine Walden paradise.
They're planning on being among the 150-million.
It's our job to see that it doesn't work out that way.
Isn't that fun? LOL
Marxist takeovers are bloody. Those left will be worker bees in government factories. GM comes to mind.............They have to eliminate the private sector. You hear them talking about government creating jobs. You know they don’t......unless they own everything.
The game must go on for all those in DC. We need to inundate Congress with Tea Party candidates.
Great chart but one problem. there was no surplus during the Clinton years. It is mathematically impossible to have a “surplus” when the National Debt increased every year of his administration, period.
I questioned that too but every graph shows that. I figured it meant that our debt wasn’t growing faster than the GDP.
Oh man, I don’t really know the answer to that. It was from a list of quotes from Atlas Shrugged.
OK,I think I know where to find it. It’s in Gault’s speech to the nation over the radio.
Read the article at the link, very well written.
I am aware that there was no Clinton surplus. Clinton is not the subject at the moment. Obama and the Dems destroying the economy is.
>>If they get to where they are in complete charge of a society that has no industry and no economy and no ambition and no future ...except to maybe violently take it back, what have they gained?
Lower the standard of living for Americans and you can make them work for less. Through “affordability credits” and “welfare reforms”, they can adjust our way of life incrementally to maintain the perfect balance. Eventually, our labor is competitive with other 3rd world nations and our masters gain control of an educated and motivated work force in a continent-sized nation full of resources. With America under their heel, they can dictate terms to the rest of the world. The US becomes a world power again, but without all that pesky individualism and freedom.
I think you condensed it fairly well. I still don't see the point in all the destruction when they are already in power. Where I live people re really hurting and things are falling apart in ways we would never have imagined three years ago.
