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.

Another predicted Obamacare nightmare that didn't come to pass. About 14 million Americans have gained health coverage since Obamacare's insurance expansion began in 2014 -- but those new enrollees haven't swamped the nation's doctors' offices, new research shows. When the ...

Global Issues: U.S. Charities Proselytize Overseas Using Public Funds
It's unconstitutional for faith-based organizations (FBOs) to proselytize using public funds, but some FBOs manage to circumvent these rulings by conducting their evangelistic charity projects overseas. In a recent article for Firstpost, an Indian website, Rupa Subramanya argues that ...

The Lavender Scare
Here is an interesting article on one of Tail Gunner Joe's sick witch hunts that has, unfortunately, been forgotten. I try not to feel schadenfreude of the fate of McCarthy's side kick, Ray Cohn, but I never succeed.

Eric Alterman: A Wake-Up Call for US Liberals
A short column in The Nation that is a must read. The primary difference between liberalism and conservatism, at least in theory, is that the latter is an ideology and the former isn't. Conservatism, as Milton Friedman argued, posits that ...

Blow off Snowden all you like, but what was revealed to be true is still true. The NSA lacks oversight with power. FISA is already too much and now they casually exceed even that generous provision. The world first learned ...

You see, when I was a kid I used to save up for a month, so I could get an R&B album and, the same day, the completed works of Anton Webern. Maybe that means something. Maybe that tells you something about my music. -- Excerpt from the book "Rock and Other Four Letter Words", copyright 1968.
