"Let me ask you a question, again based on my observation in recent years. If you, listening to this program, are a Muslim, and it turns out that a Muslim did bomb the Boston Marathon, how d you feel? I daresay that if you are a Muslim, you can be pretty certain, you can rest assured, that everybody in the media will circle the wagons and say that this is not because of Islam. This is a lone bad actor – lone wolf – but this in no way say anything about Islam, it’s just a lone nut, and they will remind us that the vast majority of people denounce this kind of violence.

So if you’re a Muslim, and it turns out to be a Muslim bomber, you will be in no way associated with it. Which is fair. However, folks, if you are a conservative, and it turns out that whoever did this is either real or has an imagined connection to conservatives, everyone in the media will unite to denounce your whole group. Crazy extremists. Everybody thought to be in that guys group will be targeted. And believe me, that’s what they are all hoping for." --Rush Limbaugh

Yep. I remember how conservatives were targeted back in '95, after the OKC bombing, again in '96, after the Olympic bombing in Atlanta, and more recently last summer after a right-wing terrorist slaughtered six people in Oak Cree, Wisconsin.

The backlash against innocent law-abiding conservatives was terrible, people beating them up in the streets, demanding they removed from airplanes or fired from their jobs, and just generally questioning their loyalty. Heck, if someone found out you were a conservative, they assumed you were a terrorist. I'm so glad that's over.

There is one muslim doctor at work. Can't say he is a radical but I can say he is a mealy mouthed jacka$$. His wife, also a doctor, wears a headscarf all the time. Take it for what its worth.

Whenever some muslim terrorist activity occurs: Ft. Hood, Bengahzi, shoe bomber, and now the marathon, he disappears for a day or two. I guess he is afraid of the crap he has said in the past and that someone will come after him.

Staying in the middle, I can't help but wonder why Rush didn't say that whatever group the perpetrators might be connected to would be tarnished by this act.

Isn't it also true that if the perpetrator turned out to be connected to a Liberal philosophy that the Liberals would be unjustly tarnished?

In all fairness, he did say "Everybody thought to be in that guys group will be targeted."

But, somehow, I don't suspect that this would have been his message if the perpetrator(s) had turned out to be Liberally biased.

Bipartisan neutrality isn't what Rush Limbaugh does, and, as an extension of that fact, every word out of his mouth becomes worthless as useful insight.

Considering this is Rush. Considering how he paints anyone who doesn't think as he does with the same venomous broad strokes. Considering how he attacks groups of people, and none of them are seen as a minority of his point, then I would say - kettle - pot.

If this were otherwise, he would not brand all women who want equal rights, or affordable health care as "feminizes."

Nations that live under Sharia law have some interesting rules to live by. If you're gay, a woman, non-Muslim, happen to utter a disparaging word against the prophet, or have the inclination to engage in a pattern of free speech, Sharia Law is really not something you want to deal with.

I do not condone the racial and religious prejudice that exists most everywhere now. It's definitely worse in many countries, like France for instance, but in America you can say what you please and pretty much only take a tongue lashing, as opposed to a real lashing in many countries. Countries like France have found out what it's like to be taken advantage of after you've been naive for so long.

On this board we're treated to many a delightful phrase. If you want to see some really colorful outbursts against conservatives, or just plain Republicans, look for posts that have a ton of recs. (some responses sound similar, because many have multiple screen names). While people like Rush Limbaugh and many others use their screed for entertainment and money-making purposes, and maybe even believe most of what they spew, the Liberals that attack them use whatever clever language they can to make sure everyone despises them as the evil trash they represent.

After 911, once the initial aspects of the horror were over, they came out of hiding again. Naturally, people that had always been leery of Islamo-terrorists got severe tongue lashings. Eventually, most liberals came to believe this was America's fault after all. (yes, we had some Evangelical types blame our culture and gays, but that's a whole nother story). If someone had come from another planet and viewed this and other boards at the time, they would have assumed most Liberals hated at least half the people in this country, and were indeed sympathetic to most anyone from any other nation, regardless of their behavior.

Indeed, this is unusual behavior. It's obvious that Republicans and Democrats have much to disagree about. But the most likely target of Liberal's rage would be the Islamic nations that live under Sharia law. Their advocacy of violence, intolerance, treatment of women, etc... But alas, you'll not read much about them, excepting when someone brings them into the conversation.

I suspect attitudes will change over time, as they have throughout the world in many Enlightened and diverse countries. At some point, opinions are all about personal experience.

Friday the 19th, the brainwashed lamestream media are carrying the story that according to people who knew them, neither radical Islam nor Chechen politics were important to the two brothers, who in fact came from Kirghizstan and never lived in Chechnya. One of them (the one who got killed) had a Christian wife and daughter.

Another lie. No one denied that the Boston Marathon bombing might be an act of Islamist terrorism. That was most people's first thought. Many thought it might also be an act of right-wing terrorism, considering it happened in Boston on Patriot's Day (also tax day) the same day as the OKC bombing, the anniversary of Waco, and was similar to the Atlanta Olympics bombing.

Well guess what....

"There are 1.5 million abortions a year, and some feminists almost seem to celebrate that figure. There are not many of them, but they deserve to be called feminazis." - Limbaugh, 1992, "The way things ought to be"

"A Feminazi -- there're probably no more than 25 of them in the entire world. Well, maybe just in the United States." - Limbaugh, Dec 4 1992, radio broadcast

It was the leftist media who branded all feminists and abortion-rights activists "feminazis" so that they could condemn Limbaugh for painting with such a broad brush. Limbaugh merely let them redefine his term (which was a mistake on his part) and let a bunch more women, well in excess of his estimate, volunteer to publicly meet his criteria.

It's been described as "Disneyland for Old People." I think I'd like it. I'm very extroverted and the idea of driving around on a fancy modified golfcart talking to people, going up to the clubhouse and swimming the pool, and sitting in the hot tub, going to barbecues, sounds pretty good to me. I mean I like music and dancing too. Especially if they'd let me fish for Bluegill in those little lakes around there. I love fishing for bluegill.

Maybe with cut-off flannel sleeves? In the wintertime it can actually get quite chillly, like in the 50's, and even down in the 40's at night. They rarely have a frost, but sometimes they do.

What I've figured out about gays is that they are everywhere, even if you don't think they are. I'm betting there are even a few at our fundamental Christian church, just in the closet, married with children, on the down-low, etc. They may not want to be gay, but they were born that way so they probably have to fight those feelings every day the same way that straight guys have to fight lusting after beautiful young girls.

It's an individual decision. Each person has to decide for themselves how they want to live their lives, what they want to believe, etc. I don't judge anybody, at least when it comes to stuff that doesn't hurt or bother anybody else. I just don't see sex being that big of a deal. It's not like anybody is going around having sex 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. People live their lives, go to work, grocery shopping, do laundry, cook, eat, watch TV, etc. and if they make love it's not like it lasts for hours. So why should I care what they do for 20 minutes a day to make themselves feel good?

Yep, doesn't bother me a bit. Bunch of old wrinkly geezers sloughing off skin cells in a hot tub.

Reminds of my dad when we were camping when I was a kid one time. We were on a small peninsula at Lake Lanier up above Atlanta, Georgia and we had been fishing and we were fixing to cook dinner and my dad told me to go get some water to boil hot dogs.

Dad said something funny about fish peeing and pooping in the same water we were fixing to boil hot dogs in. He said the same water that we had been casting worms into and catching fish in we were now going to use to boil our dogs in. And after we finished we used that same lake water to wash our dishes in.

And we lived to talk about it.

It's been described as "Disneyland for Old People." I think I'd like it. I'm very extroverted and the idea of driving around on a fancy modified golfcart talking to people, going up to the clubhouse and swimming the pool, and sitting in the hot tub, going to barbecues, sounds pretty good to me. I mean I like music and dancing too. Especially if they'd let me fish for Bluegill in those little lakes around there. I love fishing for bluegill.

You'd probably get your wish fishing for bluegill. You'd be there with other oldsters swapping fishing and hunting stories.

I just couldn't take that kind of crowd though I liked the dancing lessons. That is just a fraction of life there, however. There would be finding new doctors, too many golf carts, I'm afraid. DH just hates "special" drivers who always think they have the right of way no matter what. Then there are the houses - probably 3 models to choose from. And if you find one it always needs updating. Been there (just not the Villages).

A friend of my girlfriend just bought a house in Boynton Beach. I know her, but not very well. She had a boyfriend of 30 years who died a few months ago and she's bereft of a companion. Thus, maybe the house in Boynton? She'll be on the prowl. That's a town almost 100% for seniors. I'll stick to my ultra quiet neighborhood, but the festive mood at the Villages is very enticing. Also, I find I'm getting the winter blues which never happened before. Don't like the cold and dark. Speaking of cold, our old heater conked out a couple of weeks ago and we had a new energy efficient one installed. While we were at it, we also had central air installed, as well. Had to get duct work done in the attic, the air exchanger put there (hammer, hammer, drill, drill), and finally the compressor was put out back. I hope the noise doesn't scare the birds away. I hadn't thought of it until it was to late to stop the process.

the birds will adjust to the noise...otherwise there would be no birds in the city or near highways....they'll do just fine.

Sounds like the sort of place I might like to visit once or twice a year.

"sounds nice, I'd have to wear a nice sun hat and lots of white clothing and sandals....I'm sure there's a rainbow area for me and andrew. :) Even down there the "sisters" wear flannel shirts. ;)" - Luckydog


Maybe with cut-off flannel sleeves? In the wintertime it can actually get quite chillly, like in the 50's, and even down in the 40's at night. They rarely have a frost, but sometimes they do.

What I've figured out about gays is that they are everywhere, even if you don't think they are. I'm betting there are even a few at our fundamental Christian church, just in the closet, married with children, on the down-low, etc. They may not want to be gay, but they were born that way so they probably have to fight those feelings every day the same way that straight guys have to fight lusting after beautiful young girls.

It's an individual decision. Each person has to decide for themselves how they want to live their lives, what they want to believe, etc. I don't judge anybody, at least when it comes to stuff that doesn't hurt or bother anybody else. I just don't see sex being that big of a deal. It's not like anybody is going around having sex 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. People live their lives, go to work, grocery shopping, do laundry, cook, eat, watch TV, etc. and if they make love it's not like it lasts for hours. So why should I care what they do for 20 minutes a day to make themselves feel good?

you're so right, sex is an intimate part of a lover relationship but it's only a small part of it as far as the rest of the time you spend with your loved one. The emotional connection plus compatibility play the most important role in whether a relationship works or not. If the sex is pleasurable for both, that's a plus. :) Mutual interests also play a big part. Time apart for friends and other interests is healthy too.

I've met more straight women over the yrs who act and look more like gay women...it blows my mind. I had lunch with a doggie obedience friend yesterday for the first time, she early retired from the Post Office this yr. She chopped her hair off and she's always been an odd duck anyway...I've known her since 2001. She doesn't go out much, she has her 2 dogs and she visits her momma in the high dollar retirement home-she has Parkinson's Disease. She asked me if I ever got married and had a family and I said no, that I was engaged twice but that was all. She hasn't married either. The odd thing about her that bugs me, when you tell her something, she screws up her face with a puzzled look and says "what?, "okay"...as if she thought it was odd or puzzling and/or didn't agree with it. It makes me think she's either slow or has lead a sheltered life. Who knows? But she has always done it.

Okay, I need to finish reading the paper.......I turned on the iPad to listen to music I just read a review about. Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5..includes Fate and Moon Love. It's very thrilling, nice melody. I even did the "Jumble" puzzle quickly while listening to it so I have high hopes of todays productivity. :)

About how far north do you live? Are you Canadian? Michigan? Wisconsin? Just curious?

I extended the home warranty policy that came with the townhouse I live in. Sure 'nuff, in the second year, the furnace went out, but the home warranty policy wouldn't pay for the duct work because the ducts were lined with asbestos. If I paid to replace the duct work ($1,500-2,500), they'd pay for a new furnace ($500). Well, replacing the duct work would also require repainting for several thousand dollars all the rooms I had just painted when I moved in. I sat out the first winter with no furnace heat. I bought space heaters for the rooms I use most that did a fine job, even though the electric bill was high in the winter only.

Thereafter, I received a full refund of the home warranty policy premium through a class action against the home warranty company that used the bogus "asbestos excuse" to not replace furnaces without a significant expense by the policy holder.

I may not get whole house heating at all. I'm still debating it because I can't see heating up the whole house when I'm not in the whole house. I may get zone control heating. Still researching. Every heating and cooling contractor I've contacted says I must replace the asbestos-lined duct work. *sigh*

It does seem frustrating, but isn't there some kind of state or federal law that requires replacement of asbestos lined duct work when a new heating system is installed? Our contractor gave us space heaters to use when our old forced air heater conked out for good. They came the next day to install the new one, and two weeks later, the central air system. Took them 4 days with a team of 4-5 guys working. One morning, I hadn't even had my shower, hair sticking out to the four corners of the world, still in pajamas, not finished with a cup of coffee and they ring the doorbell just before 8. Good grief. They didn't even blink an eye when I answered the door.

For your situation, If you socked the money away from the refunded premiums, maybe it's enough to cover some of the costs of replacing the ducts? Were there also punitive damages awarded? If you're anything like me, you just say bite the bullet and get it done. Also, there is no asbestos disclosure required on a sales contract if you decide to sell your home in the future. That's a huge plus. Wishing you well with whatever you decide to do.
