Limbaugh and HSUS

11 posts in this topic

I know this is going to be controversial.

I just read that Rush Limbaugh is now doing ads FOR the Humane Society of the US. This isn't your local animal shelter, but the large well-known anti-hunting organization.

I wanted to know what people's thoughts and feelings are on this?

You can email him at elrushbo@ebinet.com

Rush Limbaugh is crazy! He is what I like to call a conservative extremist. I guess that explains your confusion about him supporting the HSUS. You should be confused. The guy rarely makes much sense IMO. I am conservative myself, so I'm not saying this all as someone who thinks guns, hunting, and the conservative movement as a whole, are bad things. I strongly support the responsible freedoms of guns and hunting. I'm just saying that I think Limbaugh gives conservatives, and outdoorsmen like ourselves, a bad name. He makes us all out to be a bunch of crazy gun-toting hilbillies. Now here he goes, acting crazy again. Maybe he's just trying to infiltrate the HSUS so he can sabatage the whole orginization from within!

His spots are against being cruel to cats and dogs.

When did Rush make us out to be crazy gun-toting hillbillies? Hmm - you must have information most of us don't....

You and I know both know, that if the right liberal individual, supported an orginization that was against Limbaugh's political agenda, that he would be all over it! It's not about what he says in HIS ads, It's about what the orginization he is representing stands for as a whole. I'm sure I could find an example within the next 2 minutes.

Mongo, Sapper is right on. Doesn't matter that the spots he's doing are for nice little cats and dogs. HSUS is the biggest financial contributor to anti-hunting and animal use in the country. And for a guy who is generally considered pro these things (conservative platform) makes little sense and puts him at odds with all of us, if he wasn't already viewed as a fanatic.

they probably pay well.

I've always said that Rush is laughing all the way to the bank. If he says something controversial, he just gets more publicity, more listeners, and more money. What he says doesn't have to be correct.

I like Rush. (I don't get a chance to listen anymore, but used to listen to him in the early 1990s.)

The ad I have heard is an ad against organized dog fighting. I applaude him for this.

HSUS is still nothing more than an Anti-hunting group that joined forces in recent years with another group that specializes in lobbying in DC while retaining the HSUS name for recognitions purposes. Plus the fact that most people think of them as the cute puppy place. That may be true on the local level but nationally it is a complete ruse. Even many local efforts have had severe ethical issues.

Further, a few years back the NWTF published rankings from Charity Navigator that listed HSUS as very low on efficient use of donations scale while the conseravation groups were all right on top when the percent of donations actually going to the cause was measured.

It's always the anti's who speak the loudest, I'd like to see some other than crazy Ted speak up loudly like Jim Thome, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Ryan Klesko, Tubby Smith, Brad Penny, some people with a bit of clout that like to hunt and fish. Looks like Rush likes to eat meat anyway, any hockey guys out here..... As Don Koharski and Jim Schofield had a heated argument this is what I'd yell to Rush as well "have another doughnut".

    • It the particular case of the poor integration of immigrants in Sweden and the EU in general, that information is publicly available and has been for some time, so probably isn't something the Intelligence folks are making a point of.   Likewise, the mainstream media doesn't seem to be making much of it.      On the other hand, we have the reports in the media that the Intelligence folks have allegedly stopped telling Trump stuff.   What are they allegedly not telling him?   Are they deliberately trying to make him fail?          
    • This has probably been beaten to death on here but....after the recent trip to Winnipeg and driving on rough ice all weekend, I'm reconsidering the auger mount on my ATV.  I have one of the Kolpin ones right now that is 2 thinner pieces of metal that stand up off the front rack.  The only way to hold the auger in is with bungees and the metal is thin and wears on the auger at the contact points.   I'm thinking I could work some 2x6's or something into a decent mount for fairly cheap.     Anybody have pics of a homemade one?   Or anybody recommend the Digger mount?  
    • So how did you get the livewell overflow out? We've had some problems with ours & have toyed with the idea of replacing it. We don't really want to tear all the floor up though. 
    •   Yeah., just not the same as Frankie. Try typing in all CAP'S!
    • Not last year but the year before that we had one that followed us all through deer season.  He would hop up on our knee while we were sitting there, and the little bastard would grab my glove and try to run off with it.  He was almost dinner many nights.
    • Saw this topic and the link to Rock Auto. I ordered up left and right headlight assembly's for my 04 Suburban. They fit right in and even included bulbs. $58.00 to the door delivered for the pair. Cannot beat the price and quality looks fine- better than the old dump I replaced.  Now do I replace the daytime running lens assembly's and fog lamps? Ordered on Thursday and delivered on Saturday 2 days early.
    • They have the 20% off sale(some exclusions) going on this week at Gander. Just need the code from the page, though Rogers just uses one at the counter, so I didn't need it. They got more fishing stuff out now, so I loaded up on some Missle Destroyers!
    • I got the TYC Fog light installed last week. Worked good and looks better than the busted out one! I would of done it months ago if I knew it was that cheap and easy to do.
    •     Oh stop it. How was I to know? You'll just get Dell all fluffed up again and we'll turn THIS into another sillytown.
    • There are a few places to stay that are not too far from the lake.  Hamilton House in Winnipeg Beach is good, a lot of guys stay at the Casino on the East side,  there is a new hotel in Selkirk that is pretty nice and has lots of rooms and breakfast.     Nobody plows roads.  We always watch the weather and snow depth before we go.  We have been lucky to only have to bring ATVs with wheels up there.  Eventually we will have to deal with some deep snow though and bring sleds or tracks up.     There are a few guides that run around on the lake.  Lee Nolden and Blackwater Cats are the 2 I know of.  From what I hear they are pretty accomadating and have all the necessary gear.
