“If I was Rush I might just take my wife and my money elsewhere and leave them all to each other, screw em so to speak.”
I think Rush’s show will end by 2015. My guess is that the left will pursue him all the harder now, and he’ll get fed up with being hamstrung by his advertisers.
Like Rush, I find the idea that I need to pay for birth control for strangers incredible. I find the idea that a woman who attends a $50K/year college needs me to buy her condoms laughable. And it seems intuitively obvious to me (and to my 14 year old daughter) that an unmarried woman who needs $1000/year to avoid pregnancy is a slut. Like Rush and my daughter, I do the math and just start laughing at her claim.
But modern America is past the point of no return, IMHO. 7 states now allow homosexuals to marry. The likely GOP nominee rebuked military leaders in 2008 for being negative towards homosexuals. My sister, who was a missionary for much of her adult life, was cooing over her son’s marriage, and how she was sure God was going to bless their union - while I bit my tongue to avoid pointing out that they had been shacking up for two years and were proud of it.
I think America has reached a point where the only unforgivable sin is believing in individual responsibility. As a nation, we have been blessed by God, but we’ve rejected God with a vengeance. I think the majority of Americans reject the idea that sin is possible. To the extent they believe it exists, they blame God for it.
My values were dominant in the 50s, but there is no doubt in my mind that the vast majority of Americans reject what I hold dear. And if Mitt ends up the nominee, I’m going to find it very hard to get out and ‘fight’ for ‘my’ guy - because like Christie, Mitt is not and never will be ‘my guy’. My values are incomprehensible to him, as his are to me. And I guess I’m one of those horrible social conservatives, more motivated by the moral cesspool we’re headed for than by taxes.
I definitely agree with everything you’ve said. The reason I have a bad feeling about Rush is that I’ve heard him say a few times now that nothing interests him and when he gets bored, that may be the end.
I also know that he meant what he said about Fluke, and that he’s right, and that he knows he’s right.
I also think that America is past the point of no return.
