Maybe a "Spoiler Alert" in the topic subject line would have been in order?   ;)  I've never watched the show and don't really plan to, so I guess it's okay though.

Debate & Discuss / Re: Anyone liking Bloomberg?

So far, he's offended women, blacks, Hispanics, farmers and factory workers.
I am NOT a Bloomberg supporter, but have to say that most of the reactions painting him as anti-minority/farmer/factory worker are simply longer explanations being taken out of context.

He is far from pure as the wind driven snow, but the perceived slight against farmers was not a slight at all. If you listen to the full clip, he was explaining how it was for farmers for 3000 years before the advent of current technology and automation.

But leave it to Bernie and Biden and the rest to see a threat and misconstrue the threat's words to use against him.

I do not support Bloomberg, but he is getting a raw deal in these latest attacks from other Democrats.

Yes he should give away  a ton of money. He,his wife,kids have more then what they need. Can't believe he has that much.  He should go to stores like walmart and pay for people's purchases. Like to see those on youtube.

Geez folks!  While I don't necessarily agree with all of the causes they support, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation contributes a tremendous amount of money to charitable causes. What more do you want the guy to do? Seriously? Go to Walmart and pay for people's stuff?

I would argue against it being a waste of his time to pick up a stray $100 bill; but to pay for random people at Walmart (as opposed to the stuff his foundation already does) would be a tremendous waste of his time!!!

15392256 Question Test Democratic Presidential Candidate Recognition D-14 cents

This one was very easy to complete for a quick 4... Just had to tell whether you recognized some of the Democratic Presidential candidates by face and whether you would vote for them.

I would definitely pick it up, no shame in me.

I always keep a keen eye out for any money when I am out running errands or walking the neighborhoods. I've found a few different paper denominations in just the past year and you better believe I pick them ALL up!

Last winter I saw a penny on the icy sidewalk. I literally had to take off my gloves and pick at it a few times with my fingernails to pry it loose, but I am not ashamed of that effort.  Was that the equivalent of Bill Gates and the stray $100 bill? Maybe not. But it was a penny more in my change purse than when I left the house that morning.

I get the point of this kind of conundrum in showing a particular person's wealth/earning ratio as compared to the common person, but it always seems ridiculous to me in practice. Has Bill Gates, really lost any money by taking the time to pick up a $100 bill?  If he is just out for a walk and not actively "working" on anything in particular, is he "losing" money at the rate of $209.28 per second?

I say no because he would be making that $209.28 per second whether he picks up the $100 bill or not. Over that 3 second span, rather than making $627.84, he would instead have $727.84 after being lucky enough to find a wayward $100 bill!

I have listened to him because I had a brother-in-law who thought Rush was great!  Not so great in my mind.  I'm not debating this point any further because I am over the cult mentality!! I sure would like to know the "truths" Limbaugh OR Trump states because they are few and far between.  Done with the conversation!

We have differing viewpoints and while I don't apologize if I have offended you with mine, I do appreciate your willingness to debate/discuss those differences of opinion. But I also respect your decision to end the discussion.

While I can assure you that I am not coming from a cult mentality here, I am 100% willing to admit that there are extremists on both ends of the spectrum who can be dangerous and close minded.

Good luck and God's blessings on you. I hope you are able to cash out this month on Fusion Cash, which is the reason most of us are even aware of this forum existing in the first place!

I see you have a problem with what "conservative" means and the meanings of "nasty," racist," "biased," and "sleazy." Still pathetic!

I just heard about that this morning - completely missed it this weekend. I feel bad for his daughter who lost her husband to a sudden heart attack back in 2012 (he was only 43 years old) and was just out walking at the time.  Both her husband and her dad were just out for a stroll and neither one came home.

Orson's son-in-law, whom he spoke very highly of, was Andrew Breitbart. Imagine that. A conservative political journalist/commentator (who like Rush Limbaugh was single handedly responsible for launching the careers of many of today's best conservative journalists) marrying into a Hollywood family.  Oh the shame!

Having said this, the 2020 Oscars proved to be entertaining {*shock*} for a change; plus, I like to see the 'In Memoriam' segment (I had it on while preparing dinner and working on FusionCash so I multitasked rather than give Oscars my full attention).

You know, having read this, I will backtrack on my previous harsh comments.  You are correct. The In Memoriam segment always was a crowd pleaser and I did always enjoy seeing that (when I still watched).

I've been listening to Rush off & on for almost 2 years, & haven't heard anything that is derogatory towards anyone; definitely not anything racist or bigoted.

Thank you for proving my point. Anyone who actually listens to him on an infrequent basis (you don't have to listen to every second of every show; I only catch about an hour or so a week generally speaking) would know that this man in a conservative, but not a racist.

He is an embarrassment, don't forget he did not shake her hand.  He was there to speak at her invitation.

Somebody still needs to explain to me how Trump's failing to shake the hand of someone whose sole purpose in office has been to destroy Trump (and when there is also a very good argument that he never even saw her extend her hand) is a capital offense punishable by death.  Does that mean we can also crucify Liz Warren for refusing to shake Bernie Sanders' hand at the recent Democrat debate, or does she get an automatic pass because she isn't a Republican?

Yet Nancy ripping up the speech that congratulates and praises many brave and worthy Americans, but given by someone that she hates, is absolutely and without question excusable and her right to do.

This mentality is the epitome of Orange Man Bad/ Trump Derangement Syndrome/ but Democrats can never do anything wrong. If I am wrong in my assessment, for the love of God can Somebody please put it into other terms that I can understand.

well-known as a racist, misogyonist, and generally nasty guy *** Please think more critically about who and what you support!

Sorry, but I just don't see it.  Very much like Donald Trump, Rush has been accused of being racist, misogynist, etc. because he has stated conservative minded opinions that others with a liberal mindset oppose. National media have repeated their biased opinions (which paint every single conservative thinker as a racist regardless of their true opinions and reasoning/rationale). This turns into the generalization from those who never bother to listen to these thinkers outside of isolated sound bytes taken out of context - in turn making their own generalized parroted statements and accepting those biases as truth.

I, for one, think very critically of (and do disagree at times with) Rush Limbaugh, but overall (not in every individual instance) agree with much of what he says. I can say the same thing with regard to noted conservatives Bill O'Reilly and Ben Shapiro, among others.

All three are considered racist Nazis by the mainstream media and by all those who follow those media outlets like sheep. But if you would take the time to listen to the reasoning, logic, and rationale that these (and other conservatives) provide in their commentary - really listen to it and not automatically discard it you would see that there is some truth to what they say and that they are not the evil mean-spirited misogynists that you have been programmed to assume that they are.

Please think more critically about who and what you have been programmed to automatically consider to be evil without giving any real analysis to what they have really said as opposed to what has been reported that they have said. THAT mentality is what is truly "inexcusable and pathetic".

I will start watching the Oscars when they make Ricky Gervais' suggestion at the Golden Globes a reality. Since that will never happen, I don't have to worry about wasting 3+ hours of my life every year watching absolutely worthless and hypocritical jackasses and rich bitches preach at me about stuff that they have ZERO qualification discussing.

There is not a single award show out there that is worth a millisecond of my time or attention.
