Ummmm I have a really nice life and get a lot out of it but thanks for your concern. I also always have kind words for people everyday.  In this case, Limbaugh was nothing but a POS and there is nothing wrong with saying that.  HE SHOULD HAVE LIVED A BETTER LIFE.

My comments were not directed at you. You were the one who quoted me first.  I know nothing about you so why would my comment be about you.  My comment was how I react to things like this. That is all and again, to each their own. The is also a diff to say someone is a bad person vs cheering that they are dead. And my last comment actually agreed with you by saying he got what he put out in the end. Cancer and not a lot of good comments.

Yeah, I'm not getting this whole guilt trip some are trying to push on others... the guy sucked. Why should we be accommodating to this man?

Not sure how it is accommodating the man by saying he got what he put out in life (cancer/not so kind words) but not being happy or wishing death on anyone.   I pretty much agreed with most of what people were saying that he was not a good person but not about being happy/wishful of his death.  I have seen bad people get what is coming to them way more often that not in life.  This is how I choose to approach situations like this but everyone is different and I was just giving my outlook on the situation.

Tell me something @techbeck, how about the fact that this ###### use to do a "comedy segment", called "The AIDS segment", where he use to make fun of gay people dying of AIDS, all to the tune of funny music in the background.

 

And yet, we're not suppose to celebrate his death? Why not? He certainly didn't show the same remorse for others that died, also from a horrible sickness. 

 

You want to talk about karma? Well.... there you go.

I am not telling anyone what to do here.  I stated what I do in situations like this and my first comment started off with "personally" not "everyone should"   If you want to have a parade celebrating his death in Times Square, go ahead and do so.  I am not your master nor will I tell you want you can or cannot do.

The world is a better place with him gone. Enjoy your make believe karma bit, the rest of us couldn't be more thrilled this scum has left the building.

The worst thing I said when someone died was that they were kept alive behind a bench and I was crucified for speaking ill of the dead. Then I come to read this thread lol .... ah the hypocrisy. You guys may as well throw a party while your at it.

What are we celebrating? The demolition of the old trump casino, his helipad, or his best buddy dying? Oh wait corona.. nevermind, next year maybe?

 

(Also I have no idea what you spoke about but if it is what I think it is... wow... comparing oranges to turds! SMH!)

Clearly it doesn't work that way in politics...  If you can't see past your ideology differences and still cheer for a death, then you're simply a terrible person...  Just because he was a conservative doesn't mean he's a racist. Get over yourself...

I say we give him the same level of respect he gave to Black people,  Mexicans, Muslims, Jews,  the poor and disenfranchised, Gays and people suffering from Parkinson's,

You comparing Limbaugh's history of racism, bigotry and basically being an absolute cu*t with the honorable service RBG gave her country is as inane as people who attempt to compare BLM with the violent attempted coup to overthrow a legitimately elected Government.

 

RBG earned respect. Limbaugh did not.

Listened to him for a while cause he happened to be on AM radio on my way into work. He was actually the reason I would change the channel after a year or so of his dogmatic talk. I think he definitely pushed me away from deep conservatism, lots of comments that just seemed way out of left field and intentionally disrespectful of different groups. Not glad he's dead, but honestly... not gonna miss him either.
