Rush Limbaugh's errors for October, 2010

ERROR, FACTUAL, and analytical, Oct. 01st, 11:09 a.m. to 11:11 a.m., Rush Limbaugh ridiculed the Anointed One for saying that it took time to free the slaves. Rush Limbaugh also said that it took the Civil War and “500,000 dead Americans” to free the slaves. Ridicule repeated. My response: the 13th Amendment ended slavery in this country, not the Civil War, and it was ratified after the guns were silent in December, 1865. There were attempts to free slaves before this, such as the Quakers of Philadelphia freeing their slaves after the Revolutionary War. But slavery continued, and the duration between this event and December, 1865 would -“take time.” Some Northern states started emancipation, but read the fine print. It wasn’t immediate, it was for slaves born after such and such a year, and they would be emancipated in such and such a year, once again, “taking time.” Error, analytical,11:27 a.m., Rush Limbaugh said that a candidate wouldn’t have to shave to win in Michigan. My response: Apparently Rush Limbaugh doesn’t understand that traditionally urban areas like Detroit and Flint can offset the rest of the state, even as N.Y.C. offsets the rest of New York. Error, analytical, belatedly added. During the show, Rush Limbaugh recited another ode of love about the Junior Idiot (Bush 43), bewailing that he was the most abused president in history. My response: Can E.I.B. “spring” for a lyre so Rush can strum it as professes his love for his buddy? Actually, Rush should not have any problem paying for a good one himself, and lessons if necessary. Anyway, Richard Nixon was belittled more and longer than anyone in my life time. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Oct. 04th, news item Rush Limbaugh didn’t have time to comment on. “Van Greta” reported on her show that a Wall Street Journal poll found that 86% of Americans surveyed felt that free trade was a bad idea and was responsible for us not being able to pull out of recession (ought to be called a depression by now). My response: This was followed by the same number of respondents feeling that the sky is usually blue in color. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Oct. 05th, news item Rush Limbaugh didn’t have time to comment on, Ford is about to trim Lincoln dealerships. My response: We are waiting for Rush Limbaugh to go on a tirade about Ford doing Obama’s dirty work, after all, according to Rush Limbaugh, the reason why we have persistent high unemployment is that G.M. and Dan Quayle Motors (ex-Ratmobile, ex-Chrysler) have been closing dealerships. Just ask that crybaby former Dan Quayle Motors dealer who ranted in The American Thinker. But some of those among us who study automotive history realize that there’s been a surplus of dealerships for decades; this first reached our ears in Going for Broke: the Chrysler Story in the 1978-81 time period. Many are too tiny to survive in a post-1980’s world as evidenced by the string of Ratmobile, -er, Dan Quayle Motors dealerships on the Black Horse Pike between Collingswood and Turnersville – including Johnny’s County (originally “Country”) Motors which while not on the Pike was less than 5 minutes away from the Pike . And rather than join in the howls of that disenfranchised Dan Quayle Motors dealer, we welcome the purge. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ERROR, FACTUAL, Omission, Oct. 13th, 11:43 a.m., in ascertaining that Obama was on the payroll of the Chinese Communists, R.L. brought up that he bowed to them. My response: and Bill O’Reilly pointed out that Nixon bowed to that mass-murder Mao Tse-Tung during his first visit to Red China. ERROR, FACTUAL, omission, 1:12 p.m., R.L. mentioned that 1973 was the year of Watergate among other distractions. My response: We remember an uncle saying in early 1972 that the public was sick and tired of hearing about Watergate, and that was true for the first half of the year but some time in July, we remember when the Watergate investigation blew up and captured the nation’s attention, and that was when the secret taping system was revealed. Wikipedia says it was on Friday the 13th, we only remember it as being after the 4th during our last careful summer of youth. From that point in time forward, the ‘70’s became ugly. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ERROR, FACTUAL, 11:15 a.m., opening monolog R.L. was ridiculing Michelle Obama for saying something about “clean spirits” and prayer. R.L. went off on a tangent about hygiene. My response: I can’t say I recall encountered “clean spirits” in the Bible version that I grew up with, but I sure remember “Come out from him, thou unclean spirit” being uttered as well as other references to “unclean spirits.” “Unclean spirits” are Satanic forces in the world doing harm such as demonic possession. We would PERCEIEVE (Iacocca-ism) then that a “clean” spirit would be anti-unclean spirit, the geometrically opposed opposite concept, i.e., good and helpful spirits such as angels. 1. Zechariah 13:2 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land. 2. Matthew 10:1, see also Mark 6:7 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. 3. Matthew 12:43, also Luke 11:24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 4. Mark 1:23-27, also Luke 4:33-36 And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out…… 5. Mark 3:11-30 And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried, saying, Thou art the Son of God. 6. Mark 5:2-13, see also Luke 8:29 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 7. Mark 7:25 For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard of him, and came and fell at his feet: 8. Luke 6:18 And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed. 9. Luke 9:42 And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father. 10. Acts 5:16 There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one. 11. Acts 8:7 For unclean spirits, crying with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and that were lame, were healed. 12. Revelation 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 13. Revelation 18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Error, analytical, Oct. 18th, 1:10 p.m., blaming Bush doesn’t go over well with the public, if it did, the Anointed One’s ratings would be higher. My response: R.L. obviously wasn’t listening when Van Greta read the results of a Wall Street Journal poll several Mondays ago in which 85 or 86% of respondents said that “free trade” was a bad idea and responsible for our inability to get out of the depression. “Free Trade” was an obsession of the Junior Idiot, follow the trail and see where the fingers point. Also, while many like ourselves blame the Junior Idiot for getting us into this mess, we also blame the Anointed One as well as the Junior Idiot for not getting us out. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Error, analytical, Oct. 27th, 11:39 a.m. - 76% of people surveyed knew someone who had lost their job – did not say how far back that cognizance went. With us, it goes back to the misrule of the Junior Idiot/Bush 43. ERROR, FACTUAL, Oct. 29th, 11:43 a.m. - referred to Crist as “cracker.” Our response: a “cracker” includes the inherent understanding that the person being so called is a Anglo Protestant. Opa! Crist is a Greek. ERROR, FACTUAL, Oct. 29th,12:18 p.m. - scaring the seasoned citizens with cuts Our response: Rush Limbaugh shows his ignorance of south Florida politics, in particular one Claude Pepper who always used to run around saying “vote for us and we won’t let the Republicans cut Social Security.”
