I always tried to get my mom to call in to his show. We lived in Cape Girardeau in the early 60’s and my mom was his junior high school English instructor. She tells me that he was a smart ass - don’t know that that quality ever left him. Part of his appeal.

He was a giant.

The legacy of logic, of informed, right thinking people that he left in his wake gives him a footprint in history larger than MOST U.S. presidents. And that's NOT hyperbole.

He should have a monument.

All junior high English teachers see their male students as smart asses. They would be correct.

Rush Limbaugh understood how precious our Constitutional Rights are, and spent his career supporting the pro-2nd Amendment Conservatives who would work to preserve our freedoms. He urged President Trump to never compromise with the Democrats on gun rights. He was a strong supporter of the NRA. Although I never heard him say that he was a gun owner, a shooter, or a hunter, he had our backs... unlike some people right here. Rest in peace Rush. And thank you.

A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

I find it impossible to add to the narrative here. What a wonderful American patriot. God Bless Rush and may God bless America!

He was entertaining in that he could command the attention of multi millions daily. but he was rigidly held to factual scrutiny. A quality that came naturally to him, while giving legitimacy and voice to the fly over country.

Keith,
Rush was a speaker at one of the NRA conventions, where he was gifted a muzzle loading Kentucky style rifle. His show was based in New York at the time, and he did a monologue about how it was virtually impossible for him to keep the primitive gun in New York. As if New Yorkers were in some sort of grave danger from radio talk show hosts, armed with flint locks, rampaging in the city.
He was on the air for 30+ years, with leftists literally employed by organizations trying to find a “gotcha” moment in every broadcast, and succeeded in making liberal ideas look as dumb as they always are, while making any thinking person laugh out loud. He used to say liberals are the show, they just don’t get it, and he was 100% correct.

Best,
Ted

Ted, thanks for the reminder about the flintlock rifle that was presented to Rush by the NRA, in recognition of his support for the 2nd Amendment. I obviously missed his program about the problems with owning it in New York City, because I am one of those fools who works for a living and pays taxes, instead of expecting government hand-outs.

Your comment is relevant here, because it illustrates the foolishness of those guys who actually believe that if we give up semi-autos, handguns, large cap magazines, etc., then the anti-gun Democrats will not come after our double shotguns. Where Democrats rule, not even single shot flintlocks or percussion guns are safe from onerous regulations.
