Please. Feel free to call up Rush tomorrow and set him straight about
teh fandumb. I'm sure you'll be able to convince him that wearing a
fursuit with a big floppydong is just an innocent form of fun.

LOL!

Other than a bit of mild humor regarding the "Furry Anatomy" workshop, Rush
kept it clean. He finds the whole thing ridiculous, yes. He broke down
laughing when discussing a 35-year-old man wanting to be a raccoon (Lee
Stromm(?), your 15 minutes of fame have begun), and then tried to claim that
a furcon was "too festive" and "too costly", what with the "war going on"
and the tsunami.

Note, however: Aside from his joke on "Furry Anatomy" ("Can you find it?
Can you find it?"), the worst thing he's accused us of is "prancing" in a
hotel lobby (Honorable mention to Shadow). No "big floppydong" on the
suits; where are you getting this from?

Welcome back to the Village, Number 6...

... but do you realize you've officially become crazier than Rush Limbaugh
with that remark?

I find it rather funny. Who would've thought that Rush, one of the biggest
radio personalities in the States, had nothing better to comment on that day
than a fur con?

Although, I think he missed the "well, yes, things suck right now, but the
world DOESN'T end when something bad happens" part of the deal.

Ah well.

And, Shadow? You have WAY too much fun.

Well, we've finally arrived, big-time. I wonder if this will lead to
the fandom recruiting a whole bunch of Dittoheads who want to live out
their furry fantasies too.

Is that really the best Rush can do - comparing a furcon to Bush & co's
inauguration wallow to 'expose' some more 'liberal hypocrisy'? Hey
Rush, one is a group of slightly wacky private citizens, the other is
the planet's ruling clique. I guess we should be flattered, being put
on equal footing with the kleptocracy.

Did anyone besides me see the news footage of a B-2 Spirit doing
flyovers as part of the security in DC for Bush's inauguration? What in
the name of all that is holy is a bomber doing as part of this detail?
Bombers don't intercept airplanes - fighters do. What's the point, and
how much did he pay to put that thing up there, for what can't possibly
be any more useful than just flexing his muscle?

Bush is a moron and a jerk.

I read something about that before, I think they call it a false memory.

Given that the estimated $40 million tab for the four-day gala is

THANK YOU. Sorry, tsunami victims, we can't afford to help you because
we need the money to throw a party celebrating King George's second
stolen election.

But don't worry - Americans are generous people, and the 53% of the
population that didn't vote for Junior still have enough heart to help.
Unfortunately, they don't have jobs right now, so they can't send money,
either.

In the mean time, those corporate CEOs who do happen to still have jobs
are spending their money on the new H2. Feel important yet?

Not necessarily. If King Dubya has shown us anything, it's that he has a
complete lack of tact when it comes to displaying his hardware to put
fear in the hearts of his enemies. I didn't get the impression from
Kerry that he felt the need for such locker-room mentality.

Putting an aircraft carrier off the coast of Korea for forward presence
is one thing. Flying a bomber over one of your own cities when you know
you would NEVER, EVER have reason to drop one is simply ridiculous.

I didn't add to the long-running piss-fight between MHirtes and the world.
I was just poking fun at everyone that does.

I've been reading this newsgroups for a couple years, without ever posting
anything, but I've been itching to point out how pathetic it all is.
MHirtes is either the best troll ever or the people who respond to him are
too stupid to learn how not to reply.

I'm taking my own words to heart. I will not reply to any more discussions

Years ago there was this 'Gush Limbarge' spoof of the Rush Limbaugh
personality and radio sow on something called 'Radio Lawn', and one of
the episodes had 'Gush' going to a Furrycon and getting exposed to
'spooge-art' and fursuits and yiffing and Gush jerking-it in his bear
costume looking for releif.

Just so you know, the B-2 is a weapons platform, not a WWII era B-17 only
capable of dropping dumb iron bombs. It can carry a dizzying array of
different munitions and deliver them instantly and accuratly. Instead of
ringing DC with anti aircraft missle batteries and dozens of F-15's buzzing
the capital, a B-2 loitering at altitute is as or more effective and a lot
quieter. Keep in mind too, that aircraft is going to cost just as much
sitting on the ground leaking fluids on the tarmack as it does flying around
actually being useful. It doesn't cost any more to fly that B-2 than not to
because the air crews still have to train and fly almost every day.

Oh, and fighters don't intercept airplanes in this day and age, missles do.
B-2's carry lots and lots of missles. They also have radar, ECM and very
sophisitcated communications systems.

I really don't think Bush threw a tantum in front of the Joint Chiefs
demanding a B-2 fly over DC. The DOD was charged with protecting the
proceedings and that was their decision to use that particular asset.
Besides, if Bush did say, "Big plane go zooom!" they would have used the B-2
anyway.

So what? That didn't sound that bad at all bad as opposed to the
material about furs on CSI, Vanity Fair, or MTV. This is not something
to get all riled up over.

Rush may be onto something however as from what I've seen (especially
here on AFF), most furs are liberal or ultra-liberal.

More than that, it's amazingly ironic. Here he is saying that people
should be doing something else, attacking someone's holiday and yet he's
supposedly some kind of public oriface that could be doing something about
the important issues of the world but he choses to focus on something so
obscure? Sheesh. Talk about pots and kettles.

Hey, if you're part of a scene that accepts and celebrates a different
way of looking at the world, doesn't that predispose you towards a more
liberal point of view?

Part of the right wing's master plan was to spend 20-30 years turning
the word 'liberal' into something akin to 'child molester' - and
they've by & large succeeded. My own problem with traditional liberals
is that they're way too wimpy. (Just look at the way they run away from
being called liberals.) We need some serious kick-ass
liberals/Democrats (and there are SO MANY big fat asses out there just
begging to be kicked these days) to face down the Limbaughs, OReillys,
Tom DeLays, etc etc etc.

I'm not particularly riled up over Rush's attention; I'm kinda
flattered actually. His snide, put-downy reading of the item was just
more V.Fair-style condescension. But the point of his argument - if
liberals are so against a big blowout inauguration, why don't THESE
people cancel THEIR convention? - is a total non-sequitir. Then again,
Rush's audience isn't much interested in logical thinking.

And since regular liberals are so eeevil, just what is a (shudder!)
'ultra-liberal'?

Windows Media isn't cross-platform, though, or I'd be able to play it.

Odd given that it's Windows Media. BTW, when are you going to stop with the

Anyone who takes Rush Limbaugh seriously, deserves to. Oh sure, I'm sure
he's conservative as hell, but he's a comic not a newscaster. So he
finally got low enough on real political material to take a dig at the
furries. So what? We are silly looking to those on the outside. It was
far less mean spirited or coniving than what Vanity Fair did. Having
Rush grill you hardly qualifies as bad press given how many people love
to hate him. It wouldn't suprise me if a new wave of people who like
anthros and didn't realize there was a fandom decide to check us out.

Yep. That's my Show! http://www.lycanthrope.net/~ricochet/

I haven't had the highlights of that Gush tape on for awhile BUT:

I have a low quality copy of the entire un-edited Gush tape right here:
http://www.lycanthrope.net/~ricochet/gush.html

It was put up in real 14.4 in 1998 and has stayed that way. N-Joy :)

Um, no.

Besides, you want your aircraft enforcing an exclusion zone, not hanging
around looking pretty, (i.e. you shouldn't be seeing them overhead).

Only if you know you want to destroy the inbound aircraft. It would be
rather embarassing to shoot down an off-course pleasure flyer with a bad
radio.
That's why you send a fighter up to intercept unknowns.

And no more air to air combat capability than an E-3 Sentry, which has
better radar, ECM, and communications systems.

While I'm loath to comment on any thread started by li'l Mikey H., I
had jump in to say that your comments on Rush are right on the mark.

Furthermore, Limbaugh's fulminations on furries are inconsequential.
More troubling were the remarks he made last week, where he
insinuated that Arabs -- and I don't know if I can put this politely
-- regularly crap themselves (this was part of comments he made
supporting torture by the U.S. of Arab prisoners at Abu Ghraib
and Guantanamo). I've always regarded Limbaugh as a fat, ignorant
slob. Now, he's proven that he's a fat, ignorant, *racist* slob,
to boot.

It wasn't really a surprise, was it, that he might have a racist streak? And
don't forget drug-addicted.
