I think his statement today is strangely reminiscent of Lenny Bruces
behavior shortly before he overdosed and died. His act now centers
around the "government conspiracy" against him. It won't be long
before his show is reduced to him merely reading his trial transcripts
to the audience. That is if he can stave off relapse long enough to
make it to trial. His odds are not good. Statistics say he will
succumb to the urge to use again. Such is his fate. Better he choke on
an oxycontin than a ham sandwich I guess. That is slightly less
embarrasing. I hope he at continues to at least by American black
market pills. I pray he does not stoop to importing the cheaper
I finally read today what this whole drug prosecution was all about:
"According to court documents, the investigation centers on whether
Limbaugh engaged in "doctor shopping" -- getting multiple prescriptions
from several doctors that he could not have received from just one. Such an
offense is a felony under Florida law.
Investigators say Limbaugh obtained about 2,000 pills during five months,
sometimes getting multiple prescriptions less than a month apart, according
to court documents."
That's it!?! Okay, it looks good on the sanctimonious jerk but as far
as crimes go this seems pretty minor to me. I might be a bit sympathetic
to his cries of "Witch Hunt".
If anything were to happen to Rush (the man) as a result of his use of
Canadian drugs Pat Buchanan might call us names again. I don't think our
national psyche could handle that.
imagine if ken lay had made a career out of screaming over the airwaves
about how all corporate executives caught doing illegal activities should
be drawn and quartered and their parts sold to the highest bidder. rush's
case is not unlike that.
fry that witch.
Yeah, but...what was the rallying cry from the anti-Gore camp in 2000?
Oh yeah..."rule of law." The law in Florida is that you can't jump
from doctor to doctor in order to get multiple prescriptions for the
same thing at the same time--he broke the law, so he should suffer the
He should be tried and sentenced just as he preached all these years
on the proper way to deal with drug abusers. Service Bubba, perhaps?
Like with those with $, they get tried in a different way. That poor
housekeeper is going to get reamed.

Go, Rush! Take dem happy pills!

These types of drug dependencies are self induced. You know the inherent
risks when you start taking them. The fact that he uses the media to try
claim scapegoat status is incorrigible.
I would like to comment on the snip about "Cheaper Canadian Versions".
These so called "Canadian" drugs are supplied to us by the same
manufacturers under the same brand names as presented to the public in the
US. We pay a smaller premium because our government helps to regulate price
gouging. Unfortunatley, the US does not seem to do this as handily.
Even then, most drugs are still overpriced here. The same drug,
manufactured in Europe using the same chemical process tends to be much less
expensive and are marketed just as widely as North American drugs. Would
you say that when you pay nearly half the cost for a generic of the name
brand drug that it is unsafe or poor quality? most likely not, you probably
take the pill as readilly as you would the "name brand", probably more so
because of the reduced cost. As an example, and there are many, Insulin was
discovered and produced originally in Canada. Many of the chemical
derivitaves that you use in the US came from processes created in Canada.
Don't believe everything you read or hear in the press. Just because we pay
less for the same medications here does not mean that the product is
inferior or less safe. Citizens of the US should be clamboring all over
their local legislaters to do something about the high cost of drugs insted
of bashing Canada. Our foreign policy may be weak at times but hey, we just
try to go with the flow.
Whew, long rant. :)
Merry Christmas everyone.
