Rush’s First Address to the Nation!

Rush Limbaugh

I’m listening to the replay of Rush Limbaugh’s speech from last night on Fox News right now. It’s available on YouTube, and one of the places you can find it is at the Freedom’s Lighthouse blog. It’s a good primer on conservative values for those who really never figured them out. Rush is listened to by 20 million people a day! Right now Ann Coulter is saying that the most popular cable TV news show gets about 2 million viewers a day; that shows that Rush’s influence is huge. 600 stations, a multi-year contract worth $ 400 million dollars. If people didn’t connect with what he says, would any of that be possible?

Is the savior of the Republican party? I don’t know. Geraldo Rivera says Rush is the leader of the conservative government-in-exile. We could do worse. Our national politicians are not generating any traction because they are not presenting conservative principles. One reason Rush is promoted in this way is because there is no one else with a national voice who is stepping up.

Why is that? It’s so sad. Where are our leaders? We had to wait through the darkness of the Carter administration before we got Reagan. We should be able to take back our own government without depending on the appearance of another Ronald Reagan. That’s a discussion for another day.

Now they are talking on Fox about teh possibility of Rush and Ann Coulter as “an item.” Now that might be more than the liberals stand – a noookular explosion of conservatism!

The most recent redesign.

You may have noticed that I’ve changed themes. Thanks to WordPress, this can be done quite easily. The image is of the horizon of Mars, taken by the little Spirit rover, from the Planetary Society’s blog. I’ve found WordPress very easy to use and recommend it to anyone who wants to create a blog.

Welcome New “Atlas Shrugged” Readers!

train-poster_web-240How do we know you are out there?

According to an article in The American Thinker, sales of the book reached an all-time high of 200,000 copies in 2008 and sales this year are triple what they were a year ago. If you don’t have it yet, go get it. You will be frightened by the predictive nature of this work.

We’ll have to see if the ending becomes real or not…

And by the way, my friend, composer Stephen Melillo, has been seeking a commissioner for a musical work based on the book. He did one some years ago based on Rand’s The Fountainhead. Go to Steve’s web site for great music that inspires great hope – something we need badly right now!
