Today Rush ended his show with an admission that yes, he is a drug addict. This culminates a week of speculation of this fact. The difference between Rush and the commoner drug addict is that Rush isn't going to jail. He bombasts, pontificates and dictates what should happen to the commoner drug addict--go to court and then directly to jail. He has said this many times over the airwaves. The way the authorities treated Rush is more evidence of a two class society. The commoner who authories found out had purchased drugs on the black market, would have had the police get a search warrant, kicked the door down and hauled the person's ass off to jail. With Rush, and all the blantant evidence that yes, he DID commit a FELONY, the authorities treated him with kid gloves.
This, as I said, is just another example of the two class society. The traitors/thieves of our democracy and in the White House are a perfect example. No better crime under the USA Patriot Act, let alone the Classified Information Act, should be prosecuted, and would have been if a Democrat Administration or progressive political activist had "outed" a undercover CIA agent/operative. Yet, it is probably going to go unprosecuted and unpunished. It was an act of treason. Another serious felony. And these bozos claim they are all for the "RULE OF LAW" while they break it at will.
The right wing wackos always bemoan that class warfare is being waged by its opposition--liberals and progressives. Their language is pure doublespeak--my cousin George is very proud right now. The tax rate in 1960 for the VERY WEATLTHY (the top 1% of wealthy in this country) was close to 90%. In 40 years the base tax rate has dropped down to around 25% and in many cases next to nothing with various deductions and credits. Meanwhile, the tax rate for the middle class has risen in those 40 years to the point we finance the operation of this country. All class warfare is started and created by the filthy wealthy of this country. They started it and we are going to finish it. Not in my lifetime probably--I don't have that many years left on this backward palnet. But Hopefully by my kids or grandkids or even their kids. But it is going to change. In history, the disparity of weath always reaches a point when change hits the fan. We may be watching from the grandstands when it happens--but it will happen.
