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

Posted on 03/07/2012 9:04:37 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia

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).

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.

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.

Regards

Dear -————

Thank you for contacting Vitacost.com. 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 Vitacost.com, 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. Vitacost.com 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 Vitacost.com for all of your

No surprise; Rush has the largest audience in talk radio, with more than twice as many listeners as his nearest competitors. And, according to a Pew Research Study, his audience is more affluent and better-educated than that of the MSM. Rush is in the enviable position of being able to pick-and-choose his sponsors; I’ve also heard that he has a waiting list of advertisers, like the late Paul Harvey. With that kind of clout, it’s easy to replace the cowards that bailed last week.

Incidentally, a 60-second commercial on Rush’s network will set you back $16,000. Local stations also charge premium rates for spots that air during Rush’s show. And lest we forget, Rush’s program is one of the few syndicated radio talk shows that stations must pay to carry. Most are provided free, with the “network” retaining a certain percentage of the commercial slots each hour.

There’s a reason stations gladly pay to air Rush’s program—he delivers. When the Fluke “controversy” exploded, there was nary a peep from Rush’s syndicator (Premier Radio), or the vast majority of his affiliates. In fact, the only stations that have cancelled his show are a couple of teakettle outfits in MA (go figure) and HI (ditto). And, in many cases, a cancellation is actually a convenient cover for other reasons, i.e., the station can’t afford to pay the syndication fee to carry Rush’s show.

Because a Volt can also run on “Evil” Gasoline....

Of course they will buy a Nissan Leaf instead which will charge it’s batteries from a radiation spewing COAL plant before ever admitting that they pollute more using a Leaf than a decent Gasoline car....

Hey folks .... I know Rush is saying all is well; however, I sent an e-mail to my local radio station yesterday to thank them for carrying the Rush show because I was certain they were coming under some pressure from the Left. The message I got back was:

“It hasn’t been easy. The opposition is very organized...but thanks.”

I guess I should not have been surprised …. but I was. This is a strong Rush market and I did not expect the station to be coming under such pressure.

If you are so inclined, PLEASE contact your local Rush radio station and let them know that you support them for carrying Rush. If you have state ‘ping’ lists, let them know this is going on. Enlist the aid of your friends and relatives living in the area …... whatever resources you have to get the message to these beleaguered radio stations, use them!

If you want some interesting if not ‘shocking’ reading on how organized these Leftists are, here’s an article worth reading (it’s a few pages long, please read it all):

http://spectator.org/archives/2012/03/05/rally-for-rush/

Another good website is Brent Bozell’s who says he’s fighting back ... he just can’t stand by and do nothing:

http://istandwithrush.org/

Regardless of what you may or may not think of Rush, we CANNOT let the Left win this war and make no mistake, it is a WAR.

We are living in the times described by George Orwell when he said “In an era of universal deceit, the truth is a revolutionary act”. I say: To cower in silence is no longer an option. I know the power of FReepers when they get together and ACT – this is the time to DO something!!!
