He said it another day to, so why no bomb threat that day???

Oh this would be a way to blame it on Rush, instead of whoever left the package...

They had to call for backup because they found an even bigger bomb than they anticipated located in Rush's TV room:

Yeah but a union thug calling the Tea party ‘sonsabitches’ is o.k.

Or a Presidential candidate saying of a female opponent, lipstick on a pig is still a pig,- is o.k.

Or a congressional member telling the Tea party to go straight to hell is o.k.
Same person says her co congressional members are ‘demons’ is o.k.

But don’t say a slut who wants taxpayers to pay for her contraception ,is a slut, because she won’t buy her own rubbers or abstain or buy her own contraception...

I am sure the package was left by a member of the Tea Party as liberals only believe in peace and unicorns.

From the transcript:

CALLER: Well, it stands to reason that if birth control is the preferred — as compared to condoms and foam, which reduce sexually transmitted diseases — that if you pay for birth control, and it becomes a national health care as compared to individual health care, then as a nation don’t we have a right to reduce disease and have a public listing of those people that could be carriers?

RUSH: No. Eileen, it is incumbent upon individuals to assume responsibility for themselves. Now, you’re a smart woman. I can tell you’re a smart woman. I don’t know how you’ve been educated, but you’re smarter than this. There are national challenges on everything, and a lot of people derive from the fact that people are no longer assuming responsibility for their own actions — and, in fact, want there to be no consequences for them or to them. And that’s one of the things that’s wrong here. Look, I don’t care. If this woman wants to have sex ten times a day for three years, fine and dandy. If she wants no consequences, let her take the steps necessary. I shouldn’t have to be, and nobody else should have to be, responsible for her and guarantee her a life of no responsibility or no consequence whatsoever.

History will record these events as the opening salvo’s of the war to regain our liberty. My only question is what will conservatives do when the rubber meets the road?

How far can they push before we push back?

They wouldn’t know how to use it if they did. Assuming one day they get what the war they are asking for, it won’t be pretty. So geographically concentrated too. Easily dispatched of.

Dear Caller, perhaps you should try that on the gay and HIV community. I'm sure they would agree with you. NOT.

Go ahead just try it and see the reaction you get, you'll be lucky if it's only a bomb and not some HIV infected person trying to bite you on the leg.

Good luck Caller.

'Sink' to their level? Give me the go command and a good set of coordinates, I'll tunnel under 'em and shove a red-hot poker up their asses.

The package sent to Rush Limbaugh’s home was nothing more than “a business opportunity,” WPBF 25 News’ Ari Hait reported Thursday night.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office Bomb Squad was called to Limbaugh’s Palm Beach home to assist the Palm Beach Police Department after the well-known radio host received a package from Pennsylvania earlier in the day.

A multitude of emergency vehicles rushed to the 1400 block of N. Ocean Blvd. before 6 p.m., where the conservative Limbaugh lives and does his popular radio show. His audience is so supportive of him that he has more than 101,000 Twitter followers despite not having sent a single Tweet.

Limbaugh, who was home at the time, has a scanning device in his house, and a package that was screened appeared to show wires inside, so he called police.

This gave the stinkin' MSNBC websters the opportunity to publish Rush's exact home address!

Yeah, after a little while they took it down, (modified it to the 100 block) but you KNOW those bastards wouldn't do that to a liberal icon!

Now real asshats can send a real bomb!

“But don’t say a slut who wants taxpayers to pay for her contraception ,is a slut, because she won’t buy her own rubbers or abstain or buy her own contraception...”

Sir! Do remember that as Rush often points out, “words have meanings”.

The correct word for the allegedly female student is not “slut” as there is no evidence she is selling her sexual favors.

However, because she wants someone else to pay for her birth control, she is a “Gimmie Pig”.

She is evidently self-described as promiscuous. slut (sl t). n. 1. a. A person, especially a woman, considered sexually promiscuous. She’s a slut. Rush was using a funny twist of the words to add to the program’s entertainment value.

It is. You can find just about everything online now. Criminals must love it. I used http://www.pbcgov.com to find Mr. Limbaugh quickly enough. Here in Erie County (NY) it is way too easy to get property information. Looks like the same holds true in Palm Beach: R. H. Limbaugh's digs appear to be assessed at $34,951,392, with ad valorum taxation of $482,169. Of course, this may be someone else, or I may be reading the web page incorrectly.

I understand why this information needs to be accessible to the public. I don't see why it should not be more difficult to obtain. At the very least, a formal request should be made and recorded.

Your Comment: “The correct word for the allegedly female student is not “slut” as there is no evidence she is selling her sexual favors.”

The term “slut” does not necessarily imply ‘services for hire’.

“Slut or slattern is a term applied to an individual who is considered to have loose sexual morals or who is sexually promiscuous.”
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slut

“a promiscuous woman;”
