    Not really a fan, don't listen to him. Why is it that lefthacks who try to post butchered up "quotes", get busted for doing it, REPEATEDLY, keep trying the same Liespeak nonsense, again and again?

    Limbaugh is funny,and amiable, but I do not have the time/effort to listen to his show...for about ten years now.

    As I said, listening to Limbaugh is not required to know that you and yours are LYING/DISTORTING what he says.

    It's WHAT YOU DO....it's what "Rawstory" etal do.

    So true, so true. We all know when certain people post screaming headlines about Rush or Sarah, on ad infinitum, it's hand picked and highly, grossly scrubbed and edited to mean something totally different than what was said.

    That's why I love the IGNORE button.

    what an irresponsible and sexist comment on your part.
    why do women get the free pass to consent and then cry rape ?
    it's ok for a woman to ruin an innocent man's life because she later changed her mind ?
    to hell with that.
    you need to reconsider your views on this issue. they are disturbing, sexist, and sociopathic.

    Lying about what was posted is sociopathic.

    I NEVER said women get a free pass to consent and then cry rape (lie No. 1)

    I NEVER posted it's OK for a woman to ruin an innocent man's life (Lie No. 2)

    Let me rephrase and type more slowly for the Comprehension Challenged.

    I posted : Then men should be very careful about having sex with an inebriated woman...it is NOT ALL the woman's responsibility.

    If a man doesn't want to find himself in a position where a woman could claim she was raped while drunk, a SMART man would avoid having sex with a drunk woman.

    Ouch, Gorn. Reply #1 and your thread goes down in flames, by a fellow liberal!. I thought you were an agitprop veteran?

    I think when Limbaugh the massive haircut he took in ratings and value he got hit with last year, he may have finally seen the writing on the wall.

    He got himself kicked off his stations of all if his major metropolitian markets, and the Clear Channel stations that picked him up have all suffered dismal ratings.

    This leaves him back where he started. The darling of small time AM stations in red state America, which is where he was always destined to end up.

    His deal with Clear Channel comes up in 2016. Will they keep him? Probably, unless Romney's raiders bust the company out, which is equally likely since Clear Channel has bled cash ever since Bain Capital came in to "save" them. In any case, El Lushbo will have to settle for a fraction of what he's getting now, since his ratings are a fraction of what they once were.

    Being the king of a dying medium isn't a great prognosis.

    This would require taking Limbaugh seriously and taking what he says at face value.

    I see no point in that.

    I don't recall Rachel Maddow ever trying to pass herself off as a poltical leader.

    Limbugh has done it repeatedly.

    Ever since he was invited to adress the incoming Republcian Congress in 1992, he's been bragging about his leadership cred.

    I haven't turned his program on lately, but he was never shy about dropping names or boasting about what conference he was attending. He bragged about his appearances at CPAC for weeks.

    I notice you haven't provided one single source for your biased comments and that says so much about the dishonest ideologue left. Here...let me help you out: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_most-listened-to_radio_programs

    As of March of this year Rush Limbaugh led all programs in the nation with over 13 + million listeners. Your comments would carry more weight if they weren't so easily shown to be lies. Are his ratings a "fraction" of what they once were?
    There are plenty of radio personalities that would kill to have Limbaugh's numbers (btw I rarely listen).

    I posted the link to the transcript of the show....OFF of Rush's own website ....to Grokmaster.


    BTW, I'm sure Rush is on the air right now....denying he said what he said yesterday.

    It's becoming a pattern for him to spike ratings on Tuesdays, by saying something outrageous and/or asinine on Monday....and then going on the air on Tuesday to "explain" how he was "taken out of context when I was quoted".

    :D

    No where in that whole transcript did the phrase "No means yes" appear.

    Yet, you put that in quotations in the OP title.

    You lie. You're a liar.

    Grow up.

    The Subject Line doesn't say "No means yes"....that's a lie on your part.

    The Subject Line says "No means yes if you know how to spot it"....which is what Limbaugh said. You lied again denying it.


    "How many of you guys, in your own experience with women, have learned that "no" means "yes" if you know how to spot it?"

    http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2014/09/15/espn_analyst_we_must_reprogram_men


    Now here's the part where you keep denying it like a good ditto-head....or try to save SOME face and try to change the subject. :)

    agree, I think Rush is an idiot, but he is not wrong on this one

    that said, a place to call in would not be a bad idea for those wanting to protect themselves from gold diggers, and wannabe victims

    Could you lie any further. Good god man, do you have an ounce of credibility left?

    "Consent must be freely given, can be withdrawn at any time, and the absence of 'no' does not mean 'yes.'" How many of you guys, in your own experience with women, have learned that "no" means "yes" if you know how to spot it? Let me tell you something. In this modern world, that is simply not tolerated. People aren't even gonna try to understand that one. I mean, it used to be said it was a cliche. It used to be part of the advice young boys were given.


    He is saying that it is not tolerated to interpret no to mean yes, and even if you had consent it can be withdrawn at any time.

    Did you not think the rest of us would look into his actual words?

    What a hack. Seriously. Go hide in the shadows.

    The truth is, if a woman is drunk and says YES.... she's fair game, SHE CONSENTED, and if a man fux her brains out, IT'S HER FAULT. being drunk is no excuse- SHE SAID YES! By that line of thinking you should get a pass for drunk driving too, since you where drunk, your judgement was impaired. Any "YES TO SEX" response is a YES, no matter if drunk or sober.

    I never said otherwise, DUH.

    I posted(and it's true) :Then men should be very careful about having sex with an inebriated woman...it is NOT ALL the woman's responsibility.

    There are women who will say 'no' when they really mean 'yes' and they want the guy to figure out what they really mean b/c it sounds better to say 'no'......

    Not long ago there was a thread here about this type of thing. A woman said she & her lover decided no more sex - just be friends. This discussion was decided at her place. Later he fell asleep on her bed, she put on her jammies and climbed in bed w/him. He woke up and started fooling around, she said 'no', but he continued and they had sex. During the act, she thot 'gee, why is he doing this? Didn't he hear me say "no"?

    Around 4 months later she tho't of that night and decided he had raped her. She filed charges and he was arrested for rape.

    If a woman says 'no' and means it, it will be a loud, firm "NO" and why didn't this one say 'get out of my bed and go home!"......?

    Not all women are little innocents, anymore than the men are.......

    One ALLEGED incident doesn't prove a thing.

    A SMART man will accept "no" as meaning "no" and not try to second guess the woman.

    If a woman is playing games he should run away just as fast as a woman would if she encountered a man playing games.

    And the word is "thought"

    Limbaugh is a pig and anyone who defends him is what the pig rolls around in.

    He's been on the air for close to 30 years now. People have been saying that for the last 20 plus years. At some point he will retire. Then the left can take credit for his retirement.

    - - - Updated - - -

    That's a convincing argument.
