Re: Fools Rush In Where Rush Fouls Up

As somebody who can remember Rush back to his days with a local radio show in Sacramento, CA, I wouldn't count Rush out over this latest bombastic mispeak. He has done this type of thing repeatedly throughout his career and seems to come out smelling like a rose.

Case in point, Rush was chased off local radio in Sacramento for referring to a city councilman as a "Chinaman" - only to land a national show.

The debate that I thought would be fun, and yes, they did tour around the country debating was Timothy Leary and G. Gordon Liddy.

Talk about polarization!

Re: Fools Rush In Where Rush Fouls Up

Rush comes up smelling like a rose because there are so many people who think the same way he does. Scary to me, but normal to them.

Re: Fools Rush In Where Rush Fouls Up

I don't count Rush out. As Robin says there are too many people who think like he does....but I am hoping that one of the results of his hateful tirade will be that some of his like minded politicians will be voted out. There are a lot more women who vote in America than there are Chinese Americans.

307,217,980 Chinese live in the USA.

Rush's job is to be an @sshole on the radio. People listen, like, and keep listening. Others listen, dislike, and don't listen, or make a stink. It's political theater..................
the only time I hear about him is on the newsclips, uh I mean commentary clips

Re: Fools Rush In Where Rush Fouls Up

Hi Toni, I suspect that that the fallout from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation fiasco/faux pas rekindled an awareness and the Rush thing cemented it. These incidents coming so close together are a wakeup call to women that we are sleeping on our power and we will have only ourselves to blame if we don't stand up and use it.

Re: Fools Rush In Where Rush Fouls Up

Hey DLM, I rarely pay attention to anything Rush or his type say, because I just don't want or need that BS in my life. But, he does have influence. For those of us who think Rush's ideas are potentially harmful to women, it is frightening to see him up to his antics once again.

My mother and one of my sisters were foaming-at-the-mouth Rush supporters and it made me extremely ill to listen to those two regurgitate his words and ideas as if they were in a cult.

It isn't just entertainment to them and to his die-hard followers. My mother and sister dedicated their lives to spewing hatred against "liberals" with every waking breath. My mother passed thinking that Obama is a Muslim Communist who is determined to ruin America and only Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck can stop him.

Frightening and sickening.

Re: Fools Rush In Where Rush Fouls Up

That would be hard. As of the last census, the entire population of the USA is 311,591,917 ...and 50.8% of them are women.

But you're right, he's a shock jock and it's his job to be an *******. But I think he went too far this time, and while it won't sink him, it IS helping to empower women.

Re: Fools Rush In Where Rush Fouls Up

the batteries on my abacus must be weak.
how about 2.9 million of Chinese ancestry?

50.8% of 311,591,917 are women?

And I can't find one worth keeping?

Peace,

Re: Fools Rush In Where Rush Fouls Up

DLM, you can't find one woman worth keeping? You are looking in the wrong places, my friend.

We women are delightful creatures.

Re: Fools Rush In Where Rush Fouls Up

Ha ha, a battery-operated abacus. Love the imagery! But as to not yet finding a woman "worth keeping"... maybe Robin's right, and you've looked in the wrong places, or maybe it's bad luck, or maybe even the need for a shift in attitude and perspective? Most of us can do with that every so often. After all, most relationships are hard work, and many of them fail no matter what the people in them are "worth". Obviously I don't know your situation. But I do know there are an awful lot of good women out there, 'cos I've come across so many of 'em through the years as friends and associates. Platonic guy friends always say the same thing about all the good men in the world, too, whenever my girlfriends and I start in with the "I'm swearing off men forever" routine. Sometimes I've thought I would do just that. I'm rethinking that attitude currently, however, after a bit of a hiatus. I often have problems with men as a group, as they've tended to run the world, but there are certain individual men I will always love wholeheartedly. Do I really want the old roller-coaster ride all over again?? Sigh. Decisions, decisions. ;-)

Re: Fools Rush In Where Rush Fouls Up

Laurie, I hope the answer to your question is----Yes, Yes, Yes, a thousand times, Yes.

Love is a joyful and miraculous gift and we turn our backs on it to our detriment. Take this from a woman who has been alone for 10 years and has said "no" far too many times. I am even thinking of taking my own advice at the next opportunity.

Re: Fools Rush In Where Rush Fouls Up

Love itself is wonderful, Robin, but at this point in my life, after a series of passionate, time-consuming, and exhausting relationships through the decades, I've needed more "me" time. There are certain things I still want to accomplish before leaving the planet. Perhaps I can do so without turning into a Pagan nun, however. Recently saw an "old" flame (who's actually younger than I am) and realized I could definitely reignite. ;-)

Re: Fools Rush In Where Rush Fouls Up

Great post, DLM....but I wonder, you don't think it's that they don't think you're worth keeping, do you?

could be.
maybe I don't measure up after a few years with them.
more than likely, they try to put a leash on me, and the old dog likes to roam the neighborhood.


Oh it's the "it's not you, it's me syndrome"
back in the day I was so hip they called me @ss.

Peace,
DLM


I sure hope after this year Superpacs become illegal

Re: Fools Rush In Where Rush Fouls Up

I hope the SuperPacs become illegal too...and I hope you find a woman who lets you roam a bit!

Re: Fools Rush In Where Rush Fouls Up

Hi Laurie. I envy you in a way. To have had so many passionate love affairs that you prefer to experience other things must be very nice. I have only had one relationship in my entire life. It was a once-in-a-lifetime romance and I feel honored to have experienced it.

I have had 10 years of high-quality alone time and I do feel that it is a luxury I appreciate with all my heart.

Younger men are wonderful. I am fortunate to have a lovely selection of men at my salsa dancing club to date if I choose to. It is hard to always say "no" but my problem is that I am scared to death to say "yes".

Funny how life is.
