One More Reason I Can't Stand Limbaugh

Normally I don’t need much help in hating Rush Limbaugh. But this week put me over the edge.

Normally I don’t need much help in hating Rush Limbaugh. But this week put me over the edge.

I am not going into a long preamble repeating what Jabba the Hutt said. But I am really tired of fat, bloated millionaires who haven’t worked a day in their lives calling those on unemployment or welfare “people who don’t want to work”. Rush, WHERE ARE THE JOBS, MORON? And please do not talk to me about what he said as “out of context.” Limbaugh is not smart enough to be subtle. I heard his response to an email from a woman in CA. Not only is he not intelligent but he can’t even lie well. To hear him fumble over an explanation to this woman was, quite frankly, pathetic. I used to try to explain things to my cat that way.

And people like Limbaugh – called the Developmentally Disabled – also go after pensions and retirement. Um, people EARN these things. But wait…..Rush doesn’t know what it’s like to earn something. He thinks everyone should make millions a year and not have to rely on – oh, I don’t know – stuff they EARN. Oh, and from actually WORKING for a living. Or having the steel ones to get an education

What people like Limbaugh will never know is how hard it is to get through college. Oh, Rush – you know, COLLEGE? Yeah, that thing you never did?

People like Limbaugh are what are called Malthusians. I don’t expect Rush to know that word, because that would take an education. Malthusians believe that there should be only a limited number of people in the world, and of a certain stature. Even Jacques Cousteau said, in the early 70’s, that there should probably be no more than 500,000 people on Earth. But then he said that he “probably shouldn’t say that.”

People like Limbaugh (and Mao, Stalin and Hitler) would rather people who can’t find work confined to the streets to perish, especially because they can’t afford their own health care…oh, and, um, rehab. It’s easy for someone who has not worked a day in their lives to say “go get a job”. No, actually that’s what we call hypocritical.

Look, I don’t want any emails on this, so don’t bother.

I am an Independent, politically speaking. But I am certainly not a liberal.

That being said, I am no fan of Jimmy Carter, who is inarguably the worst president in American history. Obama is about to take that title, though. But I do want to use a quote from Carter to the late Jerry Falwell as a message to Rush Limbaugh:

“He can quite literally go to Hell.”

I would add on the end of that: “you son of a bitch.”
