Florida Democrats: Kill Rush Limbaugh Fans?

This sounds like a joke, but sadly it's not much of an exaggeration, if it can be called an exaggeration at all.

Several members of the all-Democrat Broward County Commission are considering no longer airing hurricane warnings on one of the area's most popular radio stations, because -- are you ready? -- the station airs Rush Limbaugh's show.

Now, in a world where common sense prevails, one would think airing emergency warnings on a station with as many listeners as Rush has would be ideal, enabling as many local residents as possible to receive critical information during an emergency.

The Broward County Commissioner said of Rush and other conservative programs, "They have every right to speak, but we don't have to do business with them."

Since when is saving your constituents' lives "business"?

It appears the folks running Broward County would be happier to see Rush's conservative audience dead in the next disaster.

The Miami Herald reports it looks like the Commissioner's attempt to drop working with the station will fail.

Rush sums up the brouhaha.

I think this is why so many Libs see Katrina and/or 9/11 as a plot from Conservatives; you can believe such a concept if it's something you would do. It's a lot like a liar who always thinks he is being lied to merely because that's what he would do in that situation.

As for Florida Fruit Loops: we native Floridians are not responsible for the fact that droves of crazy people from other states flock to our sunny land.

LOL re Fruit Loops.

People who want to know the truth are not listening to Rush anyway.

And whatever happened to freedom of association. If they don't want to spend their money where Rush blabs, don't they have the perfect right t do that?

Or is freedom only what you say it is?

The government is supported by all the taxpayers, not just the Democrats. Saving lives in a crisis with public service warnings is a nonpartisan issue. I'm sorry you don't understand that.

Best wishes,
