The Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Show Thread - Wednesday, March 7, 2012
EIB Network ^ | March 7, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

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, serving humanity simply by showing up, and he’s not retiring until every American agrees with him, do NOT doubt him, with shrieks of joy at the mere mention of his name (that’s Rush, for those in Rio Linda),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, all-concerned 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. Leader of the Conservative Movement. 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).

I’m hoping will sign up with Rush!

In your face Carbonite.

Even before Carbonite bailed on Rush, they were on shaky ground.

From Carbonite’s most recent quarterly filing with the SEC:

“We experienced net losses of $17.4 million for 2008, $19.2 million for 2009, $25.8 million for 2010, and $17.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, respectively, and have an accumulated deficit of $94.3 million as of September 30, 2011.”

Doing the math, that’s $156.7 million down the drain!

It is up today, but that is a mistake. Rush may forgive them. I won’t.

The left tried boycotting some Orange Juice growers on Rushs show years ago. Listeners responded by sending sales through the roof. As Rush says the Left did not make him, so they cannot break him. ( Rush can only hurt himself , such as apologizing for telling the truth , for example. )

I think you mean, “Don’t Fluke with Rush.” Can I say that and not be considered a hate monger?

Rush has a variety of options in deciding to let the former advertisers back. He has explained that he has turned down millions of dollars in advertising because some companies were not a fit for his audience. He made the selections, and company execs should be glad that they made the cut. I hope he makes it clear to them that he had enough faith in them and their product to give them access to his audience, and that they thanked him by slapping him and his audience in the face. And by the way, this caused a lot of anxiety in to his listeners, and THAT was not at all justified!

By letting them back though, if they continue to prosper while other former advertisers wither and disappear, it would be a much more powerful message.

“Seriously, an advertiser will go where the money/audience is.”
One of the interesting things to me, through all of this broo ha ha, was to find out the strong connections some of Rush’s advertisers have with liberal causes. They want to advertise on Rush’s show because they know that’s who people are listening to. No one listens to liberal talk radio. Now that I know about their liberal leanings I will boycott them for that, even if they do come back. But I hope Rush tells them to take a hike.

Ok, thanks. For some reason it wouldn’t link when I was trying to post it on this thread.

I used to wear dresses to the games, but now something nice with jeans is appropriate. I do like to dress up. It makes the occasion more special.

Mr. Penny is a local figure and very well liked. He is known by many as the man who does push-ups when our football team scores. He has been in the news lately and I would have given you an update. It isn’t really important if you don’t already know him.

I hate to side with the aggressors of our earlier history.. but think of Rush Limbaugh as Fort Sumter and this Mau-Mauing is the shelling that followed years of demands to "get out!".

For three years the demands to abandon modern talk radio represented by "Fort Sumter" has been building and now the shelling has commenced. . . .

Pray that the military and LEO (the professionals) step up to handle it but whatever.. let's just get it over with.

I have had the following corospondence with Vitacost one of the sponsors that pulled from Rush.

Reads from bottom to top

My Last reply

Thank you for your response. Just so you know I was highly offended that Ms Fluke was insisting that I pay for her abortions, contraceptions and whatever just so she and her associates may wallow in guilt free, consequence free promiscious sex. By your response and the actions of Vitacost I assume you support these notions as good behavior , good policy and good for society. I however do not. I have no interest in controlling what people do with their bodies and they should equally loose their interest in my wallet.

Your high horse is not so high in my opinion.

Dear -————

Thank you for contacting I want to apologize for any and all inconvenience(s). We’d like to address an issue with our radio ads— one of which aired on the Rush Limbaugh radio show. To put it frankly, Mr. Limbaugh’s recent comments have been unsettling, and many of our fans have voiced concern that Vitacost endorses these views. These comments are definitely not in line with our brand values, and in listening to our fans we’ve decided to remove our advertising from the program. Here at, our goal is to take the cost out of healthy living by offering thousands of healthy products at affordable prices. To promote
this mission, we launched a national radio advertising campaign in January that airs on many different programs, including the Rush Limbaugh show. As a result of the derogatory comments Mr. Limbaugh made on his program, we decided to remove our advertising. We appreciate and support Mr.
Limbaugh’s right to voice his opinion, just not how he delivered his message. Our decision was in no way a statement about Mr. Limbaugh’s or his listeners’ political views, but rather his lack of respect for another human being. takes healthy living very seriously, and we believe that respect for others is a huge part of that healthy lifestyle. Again, I sincerely apologize for any inconveniences.

If you need further assistance in this matter, please don’t
hesitate to ask. Thank you for choosing for all of your
vitamin and supplementary needs.
