And here I thought this thread would detail what exactly when on with Rush, oxycotin, Viagra and Dominican Republic underage male hookers.

I have yet to listen to Rush from one commercial to the next without hearing him say an outright lie. three that I can think of right now:

"Most people in this country are Pro-Life"
"There is no need to change our habits. There's plenty of oil out there"
"Democrats want people to be poor because they wouldn't win otherwise"

I have yet to listen to any talk show host, who cares what their name is, tell the truth completely. There is no great break through here! It's all about the spin, numbers and ratings. Know anyone in radio or TV land? Wink
I really don't let him nor anyone else get to me. When you add the word politics to any conversation it means there is going to be a lie told sometime soon.

He told the truth about drug addiction didn't he? Eh? Yes I suppose that was AFTER he got caught lying about it. But he told the truth about his viagra fueled sex junket to the Dominican Republic didn't he? Huh? He didn't? Oh.

never mind

Would you let Rush take your 14 year old son or dauther on a trip somewhere? Anywhere?

I don't listen to Rush, but those three statements:

1 - Most are Pro-Life. I agree with that when you consider people's personal positions: Most people are Pro-Choice but would 'choose' to not abort. Add the few anti-abortion at all costs crowd, plus those in between, and I bet it would be a HUGE majority of people that would rather not commit an abortion. The statement is false only if you want to associate pro-life with the very extreme faction. Just like stereotyping pro-abortion as those that want to force abortion on others, and have it government funded, and considers all sex to be the rape each and every potential lesbian. (it's ridiculous)

2a - No need to change our habits. Agree, we can do that by being creative about how obtain energy

2b - plenty of oil. Disagree. There's a lot of oil out there, but it'll become more and more costly and difficult to get to other sources (like squeezing it from shale deposits, etc). ALternate sources need to be developed as the market drives that way.

3 - Dems want people poor. In general, politicians of both stripes want people to be poor or ignorant, or both so they can win by giving them things. So I suspect the statement is true, but also true for the Reps as well. But, I agree with that for the rabid stereotype of Dems, but not nearly as much as they just absolutely hate anyone rich or successful - they'd like everyone to be poor and beholding to the government. But not for the average moderate Dem or Rep though. Thank goodness for moderate and normal people to hold back the rabid left and right extremists.


Hard to do anything about the typical national politician though

Actually it's pretty clear cut.
Abortion should be illegal-30%
Abortion should be legal-50%

Something like that.

Use the definition that fits your argument. I'll use mine. If I hear someone say "most people are pro life" I understand they mean that most couples wouldn't abort if they became pregnant.

You are talking about politics and laws which I'm not fond of either group.

Of all those that make such a stink on either side:

Those that want it to be illegal" Don't tell me and my wife what to do with our lives...

Those that want it legal? Don't try and get the government to force me to pay for your bad decision.

In the end, abortion is about bad judgement more than choice or murder.

Don't get pregnant until your are ready to and can handle it on your own, but accept whatever responsibility that comes with it - raise the child, or at least pay for your abortion.

(now abortion after a rape, or abortion due to medical issues fall into an ENTIRELY different category than the above comments)

"Most peoples'" opinions about pro-life are irrelevant, starting with the male population. Really child-bearing women are the only relevant opinions and while many of them might likely choose to carry their baby to term, most of them would not give up their right to abort.

An ironic point to be made in a thread titled 'Rush tells the truth!"

Then again, considering the oxymoron subject of the title, maybe not!

Husbands and wives in healthy relationships, and parents of minor girls of 'child bearing age', disagree with your simplification of relevancy. The woman-only argument only holds water if you are talking about single-adult females, or adult females in an abusive marriage. You want to take some of the choice from the father, then he shouldn't have to pay for the abortion or support the child.

And it wasn't "choice vs no-choice" it was "pro-life" you can be pro-life and pro-choice at the same time.

Edit: I'm am a bit surprise at the poll number of 30% want it illegal. Surprisingly high. In my circle, most just want people to keep it out of the courts and to keep it out of their wallets.

Actually Rush was talking politics, and by using that term(pro-life), your talking politics as well. That just the way it is. He was tying to say that most people in the country are pro-life, meaning they would over turn roe v wade. That's what pro-life means. It's a lie. Your definition is false.....

Again, you must accept that pro-life AND pro-choice are political definitions. I would call them anti choice, they would call me pro-abortion. Those are the terms choosen by either side. When you use those terms you must assume that definition. You cannot escape from politics, sorry to say.....

I am always amused at those who dwell on everything said on the EIB Network...

Lush Rimjob has so many on the far right so totally entralled with his omnipotence...
and so totally fooled about who and what he REALLY is.
