And just like A-Rod if fans would stop watching/listening to Rush he would not make so much money. I personally don't care how much he makes. Having said that, I will continue to watch/listen to MLB and Rush.

What a waste of money. I can't stand any pompous blowhard whether conservative or liberal.

Rush is a fucking idiot. When that jackass dies I will think good riddens.

Idiot or not he created his own market, and got himself to the point where he got this offer. He built his own empire as they say.

I've never agreed with anything he says, but for the longest time I begrudgingly acknowledged his right to his opinion...

Then I found out he got a Vietnam deferment because of a pylonidal cyst. That would be like getting a deferment for a sprained ankle.

We had a 2 term POTUS, if I recall, that "loathed the military" and was a little too busy banging whores in London and smoking pot to worry about joining the military.
In Rush's defense, he ain't running for office...he's running a business--and doing fairly well based on the above numbers...

I DO AGREE that Rush has become a stuffed suit blow hard, but he is that way because....





wait for it.....



















he has an audience....yeah...that's right...blow hard or not, there are people that listen to him, advertisers pay for that, and so he does what he does, says what he says, and gets paid millions to do it because advertisers spend many many many millions for his reach. If the audience changes...he would change...I'll guarantee it...

I liked listening to him in the early '90's...can't really tolerate more that 20 minutes at a time any more...but it is personal preference.

If we had a Ranger start a radio show about Rangers and Rangering, we would ALL listen to it, and all agree with MOST of what was being said...and that show would probably gross just enough money to buy a couple cups of coffee per day...it just would not appeal to a wide enough range of people to bank $$$$.

All I am saying is that military service, or lack thereof, is not a criteria for a Radio guy...shit, it aint criteria for POTUS (it should be IMHO, but it is not)...how he did or did not get a deferment is irrelevant, because if it wasn't available...he wouldn't have gotten it...but it was, and he did...

Lets face it Gents, like him or not, if someone handed you a contract for 1% (that's $380,000 a year for you Strong Rangers :wink: ) to talk on a radio 3 hours a day...I would find it hard to believe that ANY of us would turn that money down...Multiply that by 100, and do you think you might get a big head...maybe a little cocky? I'm just sayin' :lol:
