Tobacco is harmless. It actually gives you superior agility and focus.
The Commonwealth of Yawkland
A democratic and prosperous, but insular nation founded by wealthy Anglo-American Protestants and British aristocrats in the 1860s. Today it is run by their fashionable descendants who enjoy playing squash and participating in the latest diet fads.

Intensely mistrusting of outsiders, especially Catholics.

Guy just put the "if I believe something hard enough it's true" mindset to the test and lost. Do you really want to take that same bet?

I mean you'd think, but they weren't. I mean I'd figure that smokes would be quite tame compared to mainlining literal anger through your jugular or huffing radioactive cow jenkem from an asthma inhaler.

Limbaugh on the radio and Limbaugh off the radio were apparently two different people. A case of Jekyll and Hyde, one a crass bigmouth and the other a guy quiet to the point of being shy. It's more to be pitied that we didn't see more of the off-the-air Limbaugh, the actual man rather than the public bloviator. I listened to him from time to time and always found him to be amusing, well-spoken and witty even when I totally shook my head in disagreement with him. He was narrow-minded and shilled for the GOP, which I can't stand (I'm no fan of the Democrats either, btw), but he was a huge giver to various charitable organizations, championed the Constitution and genuinely loved the country.

I actually tuned in when his wife announced his death and I immediately felt bad more for her than for him.

His followers and allies will praise him to the hilt, overlooking his faults; his detractors will hail him as Satan incarnate and overlook his virtues.

Mixed feelings here, but I don't take pleasure in his- or anyone's- death. It's foul, ghoulish, utterly ghastly and subhuman to celebrate death. Anyone who celebrates death--- may the Grim Reaper knock next at your door!

Don't go wishing death on people, that will get you *** warned for trolling. ***

Rush Limbaugh is dead. People have opinions about him, good, bad, and "I don't care but I had to post anyway." Thread locked. Do not re-post.
