Limbaugh and Beck, tough, real individualistic Americans just like the Founders, except the Founders weren't taking back channel payoffs to keep them afloat.

Link to the original MJ article and the FreedomWorks document.

More evidence that the StopRush movement is bearing fruit. He can have his "free speech" and spew racist and misogynist filth on the radio, I just want him to have to make his money through scams like this or "herbal sexual performance supplements" advertised on his show. Of course, on WLS in Chicago there is now a public service announcement (i.e. unsold time) during almost every single break.

Rush Limbaugh on the Current TV sale to Al Jazeera.

"Does this mean that Joy Behar and Jennifer Granholm are now going to have to wear burqas and veils over their faces?" Limbaugh wondered. "If they do it might help, actually, to raise audience levels. Burqas and veils on their faces—it could help! Never know."

Limbaugh repeated the comment more than once. He added that he has never watched Al Jazeera and "has only seen individual reports."

The sooner Rush falls down his own big mouth the better. Sewer rats have better manners and grace. He's a fucking amoeba.

There are so many of these right wing organizations that claim to promote free market capitalism and cry out for an end to government handouts while they themselves feed at the public trough and make the US taxpayers subsidize their political organizations via the 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. The IRS should declare war on the scoundrels who blatantly abuse the tax laws like this.

Besides the popping of the 'grassroots' balloon, corporate sponsors found out supporting these Freedomworks can be leveraged to drop Beck and Limbaugh the next time they say crazy or hateful crap.

Its time to simplify the tax system by removing all tax exemptions on PAC's/SuperPAC's of any stripe.

It should come as no surprise to people that the broadcasts of political televangelists such as Beck and Limbaugh are little more than right wing infomercials.

When Con­ser­v­a­tives un­der Stephen Harper took of­fice in 2006, I was dis­ap­pointed at how much they re­sem­bled their pre­de­ces­sors when it came to their pen­chant for in­creas­ing the size of gov­ern­ment.

Why the Temperature of the Yellow Sea Is a Big Deal, and Other Questions About the South Korean Ferry Disaster
The boat ran into trouble several dozen miles from Jindo, an island that sticks out of South Korea's southwestern corner like a little toe. Jindo is surrounded by a group of even smaller islands that are slightly farther afield from the mainland. The ferry was curving around those small islands at the time it issued a distress call. What caused the disaster? We ...

Healing Is the Message at Interfaith Service for Victims of Sunday’s Shootings
Clergy of different faiths, joined by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, delivered messages of hope and unity Thursday before more than 1,300 people gathered at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park.

More Than Half the Women in These Countries Are Married by the Time They Turn 18

The 14-year-old girl, Wasila Umaru, was married to the 35-year-old man last week. Although she told authorities she was forced into the betrothal, Wasila will ...

Instead of pushing for a Constitutional amendment, which would have to be ratified in 38 states, advocates ask individual state legislatures to pass an agreement: that they'll pledge all their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote as soon as enough other states pass the law to ...

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...

"Wowie Zowie" is what [Pamela Zarubica] says when she's not grouchy...who would guess it could inspire a song? No one would guess. None of you are perceptive enough. *Why are you reading this?* -- Liner notes for "You Didn't Try to Call Me" (yes, really) on "Freak Out!"
