Man, I'll miss that guy; listening since about 1990 - like him or not, he had an enormous impact and educated millions of people about liberty. I sent my parents on a trip to New York for their 40th Anniversary. In addition to hotels, dinners and a Broadway show, I got them front-row seats to Rush's first TV show episode after his wedding to Marta. So they got to meet him, on camera, he signed their book, which I have to their day and it was the highlight of their trip. I was so happy to have been able to do that for ...

Post Date: 2018-10-27 08:56:42 by Willie Green

Post Date: 2017-11-15 20:06:21 by Willie Green
Rupert Murdochs media properties are helping to drive the right wings moral decay. One of the precious few salutary aspects of the Trump presidency is that it has forced some members of the mainstream mediaand even a few conservativesto face up to the rot inside the Republican Party and among its boosters.

Liberals, such as yours truly, have been crowing for decades about the dangers of treating his media properties as legitimate news sources rather than as the purveyors of hate-filled lies and propaganda that they clearly ...

All you need is to create the fear and panic accompanied by talk that climate change is causing hurricanes to become more frequent and ...
