No. This is not factual. Mr. Limbaugh has been processed for one charge of Dr. Shopping to which he has plead “not guilty.” Under the terms of the agreement with the DA’s office this charge will be head in abeyance for 18 mos, provided Mr. Limbaugh continues to submit to and pass random drug screenings and continue his rehabilitory supervision for the addiction to painkillers which he has admitted. This is the final resolution (provided Limbaugh follows through,) for the scandal that started two years ago, not a new charge.
Empathy is good.
You don’t seem to have a problem with sitting in judgement. I’ll wait for the link to Limbaugh sitting in judgement before this merits an answer.
Again, looks like you’re sitting in judgement. I can hardly attack Coulter and O’Reilly for something that they haven’t done, but you think they would have in a hypothetical situation.
There are so many good reasons, legitimate reasons to criticize these two, it seems intellectually lazy to make up hypotheticals, don’t you think? I also notice again that you are “sitting in judgement.”
Again, I’ll wait for the link about Limbaugh “sitting in judgement,” and “since his first conviction on the same charge has called for stiff penalties for crack and smack addicts and the like.”
This latter is going to be a tough one since Limbaugh has not had a “first conviction,” or any conviction for that matter. I’ll help you out though. I follow Rush Limbaugh in spite of what you say for two reasons: 1. This issue, or his personal life and failings as a human being do not, in my opinion, invalidate the entertainment I get from listening during my lunch hour. 2. Your statements regarding the issue are false, innacurate and ill-informed. Your conclusions and judgements based on them are flawed and hence not worthy of emulation based on the merits of the argument as you’ve presented it.
Well, yeah, but I’ve done worse.
Getting your facts straight before passing judgement would be a good idea.
In case you’re curious, last Friday while you state Mr. Limbaugh was being arrested in a drug scandal (after a prior conviction,) he was actually donating the time of his radio show to raising money for Leukemia and other blood cancers. He raised 1.7 million dollars for the Leukemia society, including a $250,000 donation from his own pocket.
I would say that Mr. Limbaugh had a pretty good Friday having found closure for his legal woes, succesfully recovering from an addiction, and raising almost 2 million dollars for a very worthy charity. Now that the issue is over and a settlement has been reached Mr. Limbaugh has stated his intention to do more charity work voluntarily for those suffering from addiction, so that he may use his experience in a positive fashion.
You may very well strongly disagree with Mr. Limbaugh and have many valid reasons for not liking him or his views.
I would like to think, in all fairness, that last Friday was a day when even his worst detractors might have have something good to say about his actions. Regardless of political beleif I think his actions that day are meritorious and worthy of praise rather than the usual knee-jerk, ill-informed falsifications that you have provided.
Feel free to hate him today for noting that on the “Day without immigrants” the highways were clear of traffic jams, the stores were uncrowded and life was pleasant and noting that we should do this more often. If you were looking for a reason, that might be a good one.
On Friday though El Rushbo did good.
