Rush … NOT “a Palm Beach Guy”

I did that piece on Rush and me “on the fly”.  I did not have it “ready to go when …” at all.   Those columns ain’t easy folks.

I’m doing too many like it lately.  I’ve lost five “real friends” in the past 12 months.  Yeah, I’m “at that age now”  … but I didn’t have all that many “real friends” to begin with.  Losing five leaves a hole that “going fishing” can’t fill.

I wouldn’t change a thing from yesterday’s column … but I did leave out two points I want to cover real quick.

#1 – How our enemy reacted to the news of Rush’s death.   – Totally predictable.  It’s Who they are … it’s What they do.  Their miserable hate-filled existence is Their Problem …not Mine.  … and not Yours.

Their socio-political ideology is their “religion”. It’s all they’ve got.  It’s where they get their value system and what passes as their morals.

I powerwash my social media to keep that garbage out.  You can too.

The lesson for us is … when they lose one of their many false messiahs don’t post any comment at all.  Just let it pass.

.

#2 – What was Rush like off-the-air?  – Exactly like he was on-air. Unlike many radio / tv entertainers, Rush did not flip a switch and assume a different persona when he was “on stage /on-air”.  Same guy… OK, the bombast was an obvious schtick that dimwits never figured out. G550

Certainly his lifestyle changed when his huge success afforded him pretty much anything $$$ could buy.  He Loved EIB-1 – his G-550 jet.  And he loved his oceanfront Mansion in Palm Beach, but he never became “a Palm Beach guy”.  Rush loved the latest tech toys.   He would send us the latest IPhones and IPads the day they came out.

After living in Palm Beach 5 years, Rush realized he would never be “accepted” into that oh-so-toney High Society. “I work for a living”.

If you liked Rush Limbaugh on-air … you woulda liked eating popcorn and watching a ballgame with him too.

AND … Rush Loved YOU as much / more than You Loved Him!

I’ve often wondered how many of Rush’s critics actually ever listened to anything but cherry picked soundbites of other critics. It’s so much easier to let someone else do the thinking for you for too many. . I suppose we can expect a certain number of funerals at our age but it’s been an odd beginning of the year for us. Since January I’ve lost about the same number of friends as you but three were really young. One 25 y/o magna cum laude NCSU grad, MBA, CPA. No history of drugs etc and about to become engaged and not… Read more »

Hi Bob, Just can’t get either of you off my mine. Someday I will tell you the story and how I found out about Rush. I truly appreciate the information and understand how difficult it is for you as well as Blondie and Mrs. Limbaugh. Rush left us but we cannot afford to let go of the ideals he has taught us. Take care.

Those have been my thoughts exactly since Rush passed away. I am certain that God has a plan and just pray that we can survive until the plan comes about. Thanks to you, BobLee you make us have a better perspective of thinks to come. I am old, but You Rock!

I really appreciate the posts about Rush. It was very heartfelt and genuine and one can tell that you and Blondie feel a true sense of loss of a great friend, but an even greater human being. I am sorry for your loss, and the loss everyone is feeling as we all deal with life without that harmless little fuzzball. But we carry on and honor his memory by continuing to expound upon those shared ideals and staying true to our moral compass.
Take care.
