General Discussion, Friday, February 17, 2023

On February 17, 2021, American radio personality and author Rush Limbaugh, died at age 70. It is difficult to believe that it has been two years.

Here is Tucker talking about Rush on the day he died:

Rush opens his final show of 2020:

    I remember Rush as “Jeff Christy” on the old WMCK (WIXZ) radio station. Those were the days. WMCK used to be the station for “young lovers” with DJ Terry Lee (TL). Oh the days “evenings” of parking with a special someone. Memories

    “Talent on loan from God!” He’s definitely missed. I started listening to him in 2008 after my retirement. Before that I read the transcripts from his show most days but I never heard his voice until I tuned in after moving to Vancouver, WA. Luckily it was on the only station that didn’t have static. Same way when I moved to the Idaho Panhandle and Spokane was the only area which produced no static. Weird.

    I mostly tuned him out starting in early 2016 when he couldn’t make up his mind about candidate Donald Trump and stayed on the fence until The Donald got the nomination. Then onboard El Rushbo came with no looking back.

    All his fans pretty much felt he was irreplaceable and that certainly has been the case. No one else is anywhere near as interesting, energetic and fun. My radio hasn’t been turned on for two years.

    In the South Atlantic….

    South Georgia, British Overseas Territory, a largely abandoned island except for the settlement named Grytviken, a former whaling port…

        That is interesting, Lucille. We have watched several episodes of ‘Sailing Yacht Florence’ over time, and St. Helena is one of their ports of call. I remember them requesting permission to anchor there over the radio.

          Funny that you should mention St. Helena. The other night after watching “Love Affair” starring Charles Boyer, I looked up the film in which he played Napoleon opposite Greta Garbo. It was called “Conquest” and was probably the first time as a teenager I ever saw him in a movie. Gave me a lifelong interest in Napoleon.

          Most of the time “historical” films are mostly fiction. But I also think it helps pique the interest of audiences and maybe help them check out the truth. So much easier nowadays than going to the library either at school or in town…even though I’ve always loved libraries.

      Good afternoon, Wee! And we never did again, either. The Dems just figured out how to steal our votes and elections better than they ever did before. It shows how careless people are with their souls.

      Recently I looked up what descriptions the Bible might have about what the nether region is like. The most striking is that it will be dark. What would it matter if it was light or dark? Then I realized that Jesus said He was the light of the world and those who follow Him will never walk in darkness. So perhaps if you walk in darkness in this life, then you will also in the next.

      I can honestly say that I started listening to him shortly after he went national. We still have some good ones, but nobody yet worthy to fill his shoes. 😦

      Since Rush died, whenever I think of him I consciously include his wonderful middle name, Rush Hudson Limbaugh, sort of just a way to honor him, I guess. What a dignified name to give to a brand new baby boy!

    Who knows….but the fact that such an article (on msn) even exists sort of illustrates where we are.

    If a $400,000 Sidewinder was actually used to take out a $12 balloon, it also illustrates the point that Joke Biden made awhile back when he said that anyone who intends to take on the feds is going to need F-15s. Apparently we will need the F-15s just to protect our hobby balloons.

    Afternoon, All. It is 35* and overcast today. Got up a little late this morning. Something woke me up last night, a loud noise, and I heard it twice. I thought it might be the alarm on my door, although it sounded different, I thought. Loki didn’t react to it either. But, I am not that person like the ones in the horror movies who pick up a stick and start wandering around in the dark. I just grabbed my bedside firearm and waited. Nobody ever came. So, I fell asleep when Loki finally jumped up on the bed and flopped down against my back. If she wasn’t worried, I wasn’t going to worry.

    Well, anyway, all of you have a good day.

    1988 I was going to San Francisco and around midnight I was flipping radio channels in this jeep I was in, somewhere between Sacramento and Frisco… I came across this voice and told myself wow! I really like this guy… move forward to 1990 while in Biloxi Ms at the air base there…I again flipping thru radio stations…came across this voice….identical voice I heard in northern Calif a couple years earlier…. then I leaned it was Rush Limbaugh..he attained national audience earlier, but I joined his audience and became a member for the next 30 years…rarely did I miss listening to him even if it was for for only 15 min (I had to work).. I put a radio in my office and on occasions, got to listen to all 3 hours. I laughed a lot at his wit and unique way of telling things all conservative.
    Ive tried to listen to his replacements, but just not the same, so I don’t listen any more.
    IMHO, there is only person that could partially fill that void, that EIB voice now, that would be Mark Steyn
