    This post is just food for thought on the subject of good vs bad and in reference to the perpetual struggle in life of doing right vs wrong.... my late grandmother left us with these profound words of wisdom...'Keep on up the road, bearing to the right' and you'll make it! We got your backs! OBAMA/BIDEN 2012! GO OBAMA! YES WE CAN, AGAIN! GO OBAMA!!

    a creepy poiltical-religious cult has taken over the country..."describing the Anti-American freaks of nature who voted for this pig Bush 8 years ago.Remember when Bush was inaugarated people tossed eggs and protested, Bush was NEVER America's president, conservatism has NEVER been America's ideologyYou Anti-American degenerates have always been cult-like zombie freaks, taking orders from an over weight bi-sexual druggie who comes on the radio. You freaks called Bush, Jesus on Earth, nobody has called Obama a messiah, becides joking around.Bush voters were cultist freaks. America from DAY ONE rejected the freak, yesterday America celebrated, 8 years ago, thousands protested. That piece of garbage divivded us, we are united now , against the dangerous Anti-American cult of Rush. All that remains of conservatism is a few mentally sick talk radio listeners. WE will rid the nation of the few remaining Bush cultistsThe right has always been the fringealways will be the fringeand their sick hero is finally gone, America is thrillednow all that is left is to eliminate the sick cult of ditto-headism. Maybe Rush will steer to to some remote place and you can drink the kool-aid and end your misrable lives, I mean after all how can you live under a brown "commie" "muslim" president. Listen to Rushie, your pied piper of Anti-Americanism drink it, kill yourselves 12%ers, con-cultists, do us Americans a favor... You can call it Rush town, a place where PUMA members, ditto-heads and psychotic rabid nazi cons can all kill themselves. America is tired of your whining
