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".

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )
