RIP. I'll need to avoid any stories on it in the MSM given the vitriol that will be coming forth. I appreciate what he did in his career.

A very big hole has been opened in my life.   Rush has been entertaining and informing me for nearly 30 years.   Oddly,  I found him through his old tv show.  I told a friend about it,  he told me about the radio show.  The tv show went off the air but the radio show continued.   He had been off starting two weeks ago, was off all last week..... I had feared his condition was worse than had been publicized.

What did he have on Hillary?

I'm not sure when I first encountered him, Early '90s, I'm thinking I would see him on an early morning show when I was still in the Navy so had to be '92 or there about.

He had a lot to do with making me realize I did lean conservative and shouldn't trust the media and govt.  The first stuff I remember was him poking holes in environmentalist stories like saving the rainforests and other stuff.

I was never a fan of Rush, but I don't wish his disease on anyone. Rest in Peace.

Wise move since it appears they broke the dial off turning it so hard somewhere where 12 or 13 should be. Twitchy has some up if you dare.

CNBC referred to him as the "incendiary radio host."

MSNBC was FAR more restrained than I though they would be... "Rush Limbaugh, 'powerful and controversial' conservative radio host, dies at age 70"

Let us perhaps NOT bring the MSM in the exact thread of his passing?  Like not tracking *expletive deleted*it in on the carpet.  =(

Started listening to him back in the late 80's when I heard him on a co-worker's radio. He could be a pompous ass sometimes but he certainly knew how to be a thorn in Liberars' side. He will certainly be missed.

RIP

RIP, sir. You have fought the good fight.

I grew up listening to Rush and today is a sad day. Mark Steyn has an excellent eulogy on his site.
I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you also were meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought

RIP, and my condolences to his family.

I didn't listen to his radio show very often, but when I did I always wondered (not really) why he was usually right about whatever issue he was talking on but he always stated it in a way guaranteed to piss off as many people as possible. =)

Rush was one of the most intelligent and articulate - not to mention entertaining - personalities on the air. I remember his TV show as well as occasional appearances on lefty TV shows like Donohue - he acquitted himself so well that "they" eventually took to putting 3 or 4 lefties on, just to try and balance him.

I don't remember it ever working.  :rofl:

I wish I'd had a chance to meet Rush - his dad and mine probably knew one another since both served in the 3rd Air Commando group during WWII.

RIP Rush. You were truly unique and will be missed.

Started listening to Rush in '92 for entertainment  - anything to get me out of the funk I was in from going through my second divorce, getting laid off and running out of unemployment and savings. Man, what a boost I got! The man exudes inspiration, fortitude, and a get-off-your-ass-and-get-to-work attitude!

I took my last unemployment check, bought a Makita drill and some other miscellaneous tools and went to work installing drapes and blinds helping out a swamped-with-work friend. Within 2 years I had my own work room with seven employees making drapes and building custom furniture. Met and married my third wife of 23 years as well.

I now hold a manufacturer's FFL doing custom work on firearms in my "retirement".
 
Not to diminish anything my parents did to raise me, and though Rush never had any children of his own, he certainly helped "bring up" a lot of us. All while suffering addiction, going deaf, and enduring cancer.

I envy the Man Card he holds.

I first listened to him while commuting to junior college somewhere around '90 to '92.  Not sure exactly when.  I grew up in the 80's.  My parents were never political and I never paid attention to media much.  I just knew the news was generally negative and didn't care for Reagan much.  Rush was the first "conservative" I ever listened to who made sense and seemed to apply basic critical thinking to issues of the day poking holes in a lot of popular topics. 

I don't know how many really think about it.  There was no political talk radio before Rush (that I ever heard).  I think a lot of radio felt they had to follow the "Fairness Doctrine" which required them to be balanced.  That was removed under Reagan, but little had changed.  In the first years, Rush's show was always followed by a liberal guy trying to give the other side.  IMO, I never heard one that did a good job of it.  By the end of the 90's there were all sorts of other conservatives on the radio, some good, some not so good.  There were still liberals also.  Whatever your political leanings, you could find someone you liked.
