    Let's be fair. What I heard several times from him was a statement that the republican leadership wanted to be a minority party so they did not have to do anything and could run on democrat party bashing. Rush was certainly right (no pun intended) with his constant reference to low information voters.

    It occurred when they moved from policy positions to fighting over who can be the biggest child in the room. Trolling and upsetting people that don’t march in lockstep with their ideology is their only position.

    It’s also the 3rd word in the GOP acronym

    ~ You answered your own question. Faith. Those who believe in the Bible have faith that it was inspired by God. There is no need for scientific /empirical evidence.
    Why is this sad to you ? If others have faith in a higher being how is this sad ..?
    If someone cannot understand others with different views of life that is sad ...

    So is it Limbaugh's fault that Biden has spent so much time being divisive towards Republicans? The two party system is built on the platform of them vs. us. Your position can't be taken seriously if you can't acknowledge that both sides can put out divisive rhetoric. Nevertheless, is it really wrong to point out the faults of the other side? Rush gave those on the right wings to their grievances.

    What was he supposed to do? Lie, and say that the Democrats are awesome?

    Leftists are going to get pissed off at and hate anyone that disagrees with their agenda, anyway. That isn't Rush's fault.

    Biden has reached out to repubs. But maga is not interested in anything other that demagoguery and fomenting divisions that suit their agenda.

    the roman emperor Constantine was a sun worshiper (Mythros) when he converted to Christianity he more or less created roman cat-holism, the 325 AD council of nicea determined which gospels should and shouldn't be included, the original jewish sect of christians incorporated many thing left out of our current organized church, consider egalitarianism for one the original jesus cult had many more women in power positions...consider the sun worshipers had a symbol of a cross inside a circle and this same symbol was used by christians..dec 25th is celebrated as jesuss birthday and also a pagan holiday by the early romans as it is the day the sun rises in the northern sky, after appearing to die for three days, our modern evangelicals started becoming radio preachers after the scopes monkey trials and all the televangelist grew up in this environment which clings to a literal interpretation of the bible, and these people are the conservative RW as we speak and yes the radio preachers have barked about the same boogy men for nearly one hundred years

    By saying he's willing to work with them. However his idea of working with them is for them to agree with him. It's the "My way or the highway." approach to negotiating.

    Rush literally created an entire talk empire on exactly that. All due respect, but Rush Limbaugh is called the father of the current state of political talk radio for a reason. He may not have invented the methods, but he sure as hell perfected and forwarded them.

    Yes, Biden gives back what he gets. The idea that liberals should just sit back and take it is beyond disingenuous to the debate. The right in this country has taken confirmation bias to new levels, and to be honest, to levels that may actually end the country that they so profess to love. You have elected officials in the party actively calling for secession and for a “national divorce”. FFS man, thats not coming from the left.

    Rush gave them their grievances, but what he also did was give them their devil, which he claims was the Democratic Party. You cannot serve grievance without defining cause. It was those lies that created Fox News, OAN, etc. This country is more divided today than during the Civil war IMHO. And the right keeps feeding the masses that grievance, telling them its the dems fault. But after being debunked on facts, now they start a culture war of sexuality, because its not fully settled science yet, and they know they can kept it alive to stoke the fire. The party of “personal responsibility” and American “freedom to do what ever you want”, is now banning books and trying to legislate education to omit what they dont like. Facts dont matter in america anymore, only ideology matters for the right.

    Think about this for 10 seconds…seriously, just think about this:

    In america, the Republican Party thinks a 15yo kid should have a right to own an an AR-15 and carry it anywhere he wants, but that same 15yo cannot have a book that says Johnny can wear a dress.

    It's not easy to think about something that's not true.

    https://www.cnn.com/2022/06/06/politics/gun-negotiations-congress-republicans/index.html

    I'm not aware of any States where minors can legally own guns. Even Kyle Ritthouse didn't own the gun he used.

    https://www.legalmatch.com/law-library/article/minor-in-possession-of-a-gun.html#:~:text=Selling or giving firearms to minors under 18,or for limited lawful activities such as hunting.

    The above happens to be a Florida law. I'm pretty sure Desantis isn't opposing the law.

    Maybe you can be help me out by citing all States that do allow minor ownership of AR-15s.

    ~ The "progressive " Democrats think a 15 y/o kid should have the right to have her breasts surgically removed, be given hormone blockers and allowed to view pornography in elementary school.

    Rush's brother David is trying to be relevant.
    He's worse than Rush, he's the personification of toxic/hate-filled right-wing Christianity and a Rush enabler.

    Certainly not.

    The rancor of politics when I grew up as a so called baby boomer is nothing like it is today. To wit, many of them cannot talk about anything without a mention of Trump. If anyone is to blame for that IMHO it is the people behind the information operation that was put into place by the media and swamp after Trump won, to agitate and inflame the minds of liberals to the point that many of them have a real derangement syndrom. Who was behind this operation is unclear to me. The mental damage to people is real. I keep coming back to a presentation I heard in the 90s given by a Major General at an information warfare conference asserting that all future wars would be won by information warfare.

    Someone's belief in the supernatural is not evidence of the supernatural. There is a need for evidence for anyone who has critical thinking.

    As to why is this sad, Netflix has a miniseries that answers that question called Keep Sweet Prey and Obey. My challenge to you is to watch this miniseries and come back with a comment.

    Now if you watch the video, you will perhaps comeback and tell me that is an extreme example. If so, I will be happy to provide other case studies.

    I'm sorry your bs game of "let's imagine" didn't work out in the way you thought it should. Better luck next time.
    I hear Google can be your friend. Personally I prefer Bing. Try it out.
