I started listening to Rush in 1988. I, as so many others have stated, was blown away by this man who seemed to be able to read my mind and was able to put my thoughts into words.
When Rush had his TV show I was in a bar with some friends one night. The only thing the other seven or eight people in the bar knew about Rush was he often used the phrase “With talent on loan from God”. They mistook this to be a brag and, therefore, took to disliking him and they all started saying – Shut that bum off, yeah, change the channel. I prevailed on them to just watch until the first commercial. When the commercial came on I said “now, did Rush say anything that anybody here disagreed with?” Silence. We ended up watching the entire show. I thought I had them. But, like so many dems that logic is so often wasted on, they just called him a bum and ordered another beer.
Rush was and will always be one of the highlight of my life. May God Bless and Keep you, Rush. America can never thank you enough.l
