Rush is not the first controversial figure to join Twitter. Hezbollah, the Shi’a Islamic group based in Lebanon that is considered a terrorist group by the United States, has a Twitter account with more than 10,000 followers.

There were also numerous Twitter accounts of people and groups associated with the Taliban.

Seriously? Couldn’t they have at least compared him to Bill Maher?

Facebook site for Rush Limbaugh “haters”:

It boasts to be able to find 2 million people who dislike Rush Limbaugh.  It has 2,289 fans/”likes”:

Just saying…

First of all, whoop-ti-do!  If a carry-on fee is reprehensible to you, then don’t fly the airline that charges you one.  Cased closed.

This, however, gets me goat:

New York Sen. Charles Schumer said Sunday that American, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, US Airways and JetBlue Airways each have committed to him that they would not institute fees for carry-on bags. He said he was hopeful other carriers would follow suit.

via 5 airlines won’t charge for carry-on bags, senator says: Rutland Herald Online.

Why do airlines, private business entities, have to commit anything to Charles Schumer?  They have to commit to him just because he’s a senator?  What the heck?  Is he in charge of setting fees for airlines, now?

I would have to do more research, but in article that Rush Limbaugh read on the air last Thursday he uncovered the real reason behind the carry-on fees being used by Spirit Airlines in Florida: the government doesn’t (or can’t…not sure which) levy a tax on fees.  In other words, the government can tax the sale of the ticket, the cost of the fuel, and just about everything else that goes into making an airplane trip possible, but they can’t tax a fee for a bag.

So, Spirit Airlines, I presume, has introduced the bag fee and lowered their ticket prices to negate the tax implication of providing customers with the service that they demand.  It may even be a win-win for the customer and the airline.  The customer pays the same (or slightly less) for a trip to reach their destination and the airline keeps more of the money from the transaction for itself.

I hope that Spirit Airlines doesn’t cave and I wish that the electorate would stop tolerating senators who think that an entire industry must answer to them for how they go about making their businesses work.

Clinton is “triangulating” Rush and the gang, blah, blah, blah…

This is what jumped out at me from the story:

He also alluded to the anti-government tea party movement, which held protests in several states Thursday. At the Washington rally, Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota railed against “gangster government.” (Emphasis mine)

via My Way News – Clinton alludes to 1995 bombing, says words matter.

Seriously?  Several states?  Try just about every one of them.  A cursory Google search can locate at least a dozen states that had tea party rallies (or “protests”).  That strikes me as more than several.  Does the AP want people to take them seriously?  If so, then they really should try harder to be more objective.

[Offending Letter Writer] has swallowed whole Rush Limbaugh’s lies that the reform act is a “socialized government takeover.”

I love how the mere mention of Rush Limbaugh’s name is akin to saying to a parishioner, “You are heeding the advice of the devil!”  Of course, in either scenario the accused is just supposed to sit down, shut up, and get educated in the “right” way.

So, this report shows up on the Fox News web site but after getting to the end of the article I could tell that it was written by the Associated Press (what Rush calls the State-Run AP).  How do I know?  The last line of the article ends like this:

Two years later Limbaugh acknowledged he was addicted to pain medicine. He blamed the addiction on severe back pain, and took a five-week leave from his radio show to enter rehab.

via Rush Limbaugh Hospitalized With Chest Pains – Local News | News Articles | National News | US News – FOXNews.com.

Never mind that Rush has been on the record describing the his addiction and rehabilitation in terms of reformation and repentance that liberals typically cheer when it applies to other criminals.

So I scanned back to the top of the article and sho’ ’nuff, the byline was the Associated Press.  Once you know what to look for it gets easier to spot the so-called “unbiased” reporting of liberals-in-reporter’s clothing.

This kind of weapons-grade stupidity is one of the things America can no longer afford.
