your reminder that when Jerry Garcia died, Rush Limbaugh called him "just another dead doper. and a dirt bag"

I'm buying a flag and putting it up just full staff just to say "---- you" to this state and to Rush.

She's also obsessed with morbidly obese men who spread lies and hate.

I said this a few days ago and I will repeat it here. If Trump were still President and the Republicans still controlled Congress, Limbaugh's body would by lying in State at the US Capitol. Pretty sickening notion.

And Nazi flags in Sweden flew at half mast after Hitler died.

I'm not a big believer in the sacredness of flags- Otherwise I would argue that this is a form of desecration. A bunch of dead people whose life philosophies I probably didn't agree with died for that flag. Rush might've died for some more Oxycontin, or a jelly donut, but he never would've died for America or the flag. He was only so gracious to allow others to do it for him.

It is healthy for Trump supporters to realize that millions of Americans really do believe that currently Rush Limbaugh's soul is burning in agony in hell.

To paraphrase Phil Ochs:

In the swamps of their bureaucracy they're always bogging down
And criminals are posing as the mayors of each town
And the speeches of the governors are like ravings of a clown"

I'd worry about your own karma if I was you trumper. It is a good thing that he is gone. (I said a good thing!)

Anyway I'd hate to be Limbaugh and have to come back and live his karma. Can't even imagine how nasty that will be for him.

But regardless many had a part to play (all the worlds a stage after all) Jan 6th was a result of the lies and hate spewing from this man's megaphone. He had a responsibility as a citizen and he failed in that duty.

It all came home to roost in the halls of the US Capitol on Jan 6th for all the world to see.

And this time it wasn't thousands of Muslims cheering on the streets at the fall of the towers.

It was thousands of Americans. Cheering at the fall of democracy.

If you were one of them then you best care for your own karma before to worry about the karma of others. Our democracy don't take too kindly to insurrectionists and all.

People are entitled to their opinions. I never followed Rush and to be honest he was no fan of Trump in the 2015 primaries. I just have a problem blaming Rush for 500,000 deaths when you already have Trump to blame. Neither me or my close/extended family got sick and no one died simply because we used common sense approach to the virus. I don't listen to talking heads so I have little to blame them for.

If you can't connect the dots between the 30+years of lies promulgated by Rush and the current state of affairs of our country, including such things as an ignorant response to Covid and conspiracy laden insurrection, then you are an abject moron.

i.e. when an influencer like Rush spends 30+years saying liberals and democrats are evil waiting to enslave conservatives, and conservatives now hold the opinion that liberals and democrats are the enemy, there is a connection.

It's not my problem that people are polarized by personalities. Quit letting others think for you. Quit following celebrities down the dark road. Think for yourself - it's not a modern concept. And by all means, quit with your faux outrage that sheep follow the brand that they choose. It's been going on forever. You look weak.

Another one looking for an argument. Stop going to crowded areas. Don't send sick people to a nursing home full of people with compromised immune systems and by all means grow a brain. It aint that hard. None of us got on an airplane. Look at the social distancing in the airport 30 minutes before people jam themselves into a flying petri dish. Are you on a fishing expedition or are you really that dull?

People have a right to refuse treatment.

My friend's dad fell, breaking a hip. Got sent to the nursing home for rehab, where he got COVID-19 and died.

But he could have just lay there in agony.

So my point is: Where else would you have sent him?

Let me get this straight:

You think it's possible that everyone who gets sent to nursing homes for rehabilitation... can be rehabilitated at home?
Why would their insurance companies pay to send them to nursing homes, if that were the case?
Why would they choose to go to nursing homes, if that were the case?

You know nothing about nothing.
