So Rush Limbaugh, the squeaky, sexually-ambiguous right-wing bigot and guru to tens of millions of gullible white trash Americans, turns out to be a junkie.
 
A white trash junkie par excellence, his poison pill of choice, OxyContin, known in rural white America as "hillbilly heroin." Rush pops the hillbilly heroin, while the hillbillies feed his habit by tuning in loyally to his sermons...which preach the evils of drugs. Whatta junkie! Not just any ol' junkie either, but an opiate hog so voracious he makes Kurt Cobain and Thomas de Quincey seem like lightweights by comparison. At least, if you believe the latest Newsweek cover story.

No matter how many times the US press reports a new outing of some billionaire celebrity junkie, they insist on dragging out the old lies about junkies as poor sad losers crying for help. So let's list the lies, complete with example from the current Newsweek's cover story on Limbaugh's fall, followed by a brief statement of the obvious, forbidden truth.

Lie #1: "drugs wreck your life."

NEWSWEEK'S VERSION: "[Limbaugh] was...for the past several years [when he was addicted to opiates] living in a private hell of pain and compulsion."

Getting arrested for drugs wrecks your life--not using them.

If drugs wreck your life, how come Rush's career hit its biggest high while he was gulping down every OxyContin he could buy? And how come none of his 20 million loyal listeners, not to mention his employers or his enemies in the political/media world, noticed any change in the quality of Rush's broadcasts during his years of addiction? In 2001, when by his own admission he was high all the time, Rush won a contract for $280 million dollars. Your life should be so "wrecked"!

Oh, by the way, all you Dittoheads, how does it feel to know that every Limbaugh line that made you chuckle was delivered by a junkie who was high as a kite on-air?

Lie "#2: "Drugs are for losers."

NEWSWEEK'S VERSION: "Off-air, [Limbaugh] was a lonely man...a childless, twice-divorced, thrice-married schlub..."

Fact: prescription opiates are a perk reserved for the American elite. Limbaugh gave a perfect example in describing his flirtation with Prozac: "'Do I have to go to the doctor for it?' Limbaugh said he asked... 'Oh yeah, it's a prescription, but we can get some for you, given who you are,'...[dealers] replied."

Free drugs are, with free sex, the top perks of fame in America. That's why every American celebrity is on drugs. Your favorite stars, your champions of family values, your adored Wall Street predators-every one of them is a junkie.

But they aren't running any risk of arrest. Prescription opiates aren't even illegal-not if you're a success. When Winona Ryder was dumb enough to shoplift at Saks, she got searched and was found to be carrying seven different prescription drugs, mostly opiates. But she didn't do a single day for drugs, because it turned out doctors had prescribed every one of them. Nobody ever explained why a healthy young woman like her needed a prescription for liquid Demerol. Losers like you couldn't get that stuff even if you were on your deathbed, screaming in agony. But Winona had a bottle of it-and got it back, with apologies, from the cops who busted her.

What is illegal is losers like you trying to use these drugs, which are reserved for the elite. For that, there's a serious penalty: months or years in an American prison, being gangraped and sold as a human toilet by one or another gang of racist monsters.

In order to make this lie into a truth, we only need to add one key word: "Drugs are illegal for losers."

Given the fact that so many successful and famous people are found out to have drug "problems," a more honest generalization would be that drugs are for WINNERS.

Lie #3: "Drugs are a cry for help."

NEWSWEEK'S VERSION: "[Limbaugh]...was a lonely object of mass adulation, socially ill at ease, at least occasionally depressed..."

Yeah, it was Hell for Rush being rich and famous--"at least occasionally." Just like it was Hell for Winona ditzing around Hollywood being asked for autographs and floating on a cushion of opium clouds.

Rush and Winona don't pop Demerol because they're lonely or troubled. They do it because--now, this is hard for most people to understand, so listen carefully--they do it because opiates make you feel great. Can we make it any plainer? Habla usted Ingles? Here it is in all caps, so you can read it plainly: OPIATES MAKE YOU FEEL GREAT.

They're way better--and we mean way, WAY better--than booze, burgers or cigars, the booby prizes you boobies stick to. The only help Rush needed for his drug habit was getting some more pills fast.


Lie #4: "Drugs kill."

NEWSWEEK'S VERSION: "'Right now [OxyContin] is one of the most abused prescription drugs,' says one DEA official. 'It's certainly the most dangerous.'"

McDonald's burgers and fries kill. Booze kills. Cigarettes kill...but prescription opiates don't. That's a medical fact: opiates are not cell-toxic. Alcohol is. Freedom Fries are. But Demerol, Darvon, Oxycontin, Lorocet are not.

In fact, rich opiate users with nice cooperative MDs often live longer than non-users, simply because they eat less. And America could really use some of that side-effect--because it's fat, not drugs, that kills Americans. According to the US Government, obesity kills 300,000 Americans every year. If ordinary Americans were allowed to buy prescription opiates the way celebs are, Americans would instantly get slimmer, healthier, and a lot better looking. Take Rush: we'll bet you Rush's blood pressure and heartrate were better the longer he stayed on Oxycontin. His addiction has probably added ten years to his life-span.

Of course, an American opiate-users who isn't rich like Rush faces terrible health risks. But it's not the opiates that kill him, it's Prohibition. Why do junkies OD and get AIDS? Because they have to inject, instead of taking safe little pills like Rush and Winona. When you inject, you risk infection. You also can't judge the potency of what you're using until it's too late, when the stuff's already in your bloodstream. Injecting any drug is very dangerous, and injecting illegal opiates of unknown potency is very, very dangerous.

So why do non-wealthy junkies inject? Once again: Prohibition. The stuff has to be smuggled into the country; the smaller the volume the better. That means highly-concentrated powdered heroin, sold in tiny quantities at huge price. The only way to get high off these tiny quantities is to inject. So junkies shoot up, infect each other and die.

Lie #5: "Once you start using that stuff you're addicted."

NEWSWEEK'S VERSION: "I am addicted to prescription pain medication." Rush Limbaugh

"Addiction" is a funny little word. It started out meaning something real; then it turned out you could be addicted to chocolate or shopping or sex or tennis. But the core meaning describes a physical fact: some substances are addictive. The most addictive of all is good old nicotine. This lethal, perfectly legal (even subsidized) toxin may be the worst drug of all. It keeps you hooked without giving you even a few minutes' high. Opiates are about one-tenth as addictive as nicotine, but they definitely do become addictive for some people. It's just not easy to say whether Rush was a hopeless addict or simply liked the stuff. He sounds like a very selfish, mistrustful man who liked to be alone, floating on his private cloud and didn't want to share his TV, his pills or his sofa. Is that addiction or just being an ordinary, selfish pig?

Like most American arguments, it comes down to who can afford the best lawyers. And Rush has already hired one of the best in Florida. So by the time his case hits the courts, we'll all be sobbing for Rush and his addiction.

But somebody should ask Rush a question: if addiction is real, then how come we have sent millions of Americans to hellish prisons for it? Isn't that kind of like sending diabetics to prison for trying to get insulin?

We need to go back and check Rush's record for signs of sympathy for the helpless addicts who found themselves in his present predicament. And durned if we don't come across a clear, simple declaration of Rush's views: "Too many whites are getting away with drug use. The answer is to...find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them, and send them up the river."

He's white all right. He's been getting away with it. But don't warm up the riverboat just yet, because Rush isn't going anywhere.

If you really think he's ever going to see the inside of a prison cell, you're suffering from America's most widespread addiction: slurping up the self-serving lies their masters tell them.

    I'm giving out tens like candy today!

    *sigh. How I wish I could go back to the days of having impacted wisdom teeth.

    I know I've said that before. It's just that I have no desire to risk my freedom buying illegal drugs, and I'm not going to shoot up until my 80th birthday, but I really love opaites, and I'd like some more.

      Tommy did nothing wrong. Actually he did something I admire.He took the heat for his son, who also did nothing wrong. Six months in the joint for selling class artwork. If Rush isn't a junkie then Tommy is an art dealer and a far greater man as he trully did nothing wrong except protect his son. What a fuckin' situation.

    Not to sound like an after school special, but I think drugs are for losers. If you can't face life without mind-altering substances, that makes you a coward in my view. I was neutral on Limbaugh before (viewing him as a political Jerry Springer), but now I look at him with a mix of disdain and pity. As for the destroying one's life bit, it depends on if you've got a life to destroy. I doubt Rush will be making any more money out of politics, at the very least.

      He'll find God again and all the conservatives will forgive him.

      Why would you say you're sorry for having an opinion? Oh, I see it's because your opinion is needlessly judgemental. There a lot more reasons to take drugs than needing something to help you "face life." Sure, lots of people use it as an escape. Just an many people (those who are in control of thier lives and don't fuck up, so you don't hear it on the news) engage in it recreationally - you know, for fun. You know, like soccer, or knitting, or poetry slams....

        Needlessly judgemental? Things get judged all the time, whether there's a need or not. As for soccer, knitting, and poetry slams; these are things that don't chemically alter your brain. Also, I think you could choose not to engage in a poetry slam with no ill effects, but drugs take a somewhat tighter hold. And when is the last time you heard of someone dying from a poetry overdose?
        But you do score one point, some people just do it for recreation's sake. I just think there are less foolish ways to spend your leisure time.

          Soccer does chemically alter your brain, if you play hard enough, with endorphins. Poetry slams? Yep, they do it too. Adrenaline. Knitting I dunno about, I don't knit. Any knitter waanna take a stab at this?

          Hyuck. Too much oxygen can kill you. I see people around me dying of long term fat poisoning all the time. Turns out that a really fatty meal can send an abused heart over the edge, much like an overdose of speed. Every single thing that you put in your body has consequneces, and drugs are not the only ones that can fuck you up bigtime if you don't take proper cautions. Every single emotion you have is chemically triggered, and drugs can be used to balance or encourage the emotional states you wish to achieve. It's not like I take a Vicodin and sit there feeling the Vicodin. I use drugs to heighten the effects of an already full life, and I do it rarely. You don't use drugs, fine. You think you're better than someone who does, piss off.

            Mostly just an overinflated ego, but in the case of drug users, I think it stands on its own merits. In any case, if you get your endorphins naturally, you've earned them. Even after the fact, you can look back and remember that hot chick, or kick-ass game of soccer, or even that unmatched piece of embroidery you once did. If you get your endorphins with drugs, its nothing more than an illusion, you're happy over nothing, and once the high is over, you're left with nothing more than you had beforehand. This is pitiful, in my estimation. Even you, who take drugs to "enhance an already full life". Can't be all that full.

              What a crock.

              You don't ever eat refined sugar? Mood enhancer that leaves you flat. Addictive. Unnatural, as well as exploitative of sugar workers. Oh, I'm sorry, you are quite sure that all your sugar comes from sugar beets produced in the US, picked by legal, well-paid farm workers? I could list many, many legal substances that change the body in ways that are highly sought after by scads of people, and you use lots and lots of them. For christ's sake, a diuretic can be an anti depressant for a constipated person.

              Pu-lease. You're just making different, legal choices about which drugs you use, but you're using drugs. You're affecting your physical makeup with the things that you choose to put in your body. Here's the thing; it's your body,. you get to make those choices. Your choices are obviously right for you, but you don't live anyone else's life. They live those lives, and a beer and a toke isn't going to to make them a bad person, or a weak one. Personally, I have no interest in pursuing an endorphin high by stressing my body past a pain barrier. If I want to get high, I'll open the well stocked cabinet of American Pharmaceutical wonders and pick my experience. Or I'll go to a poetry slam and read my crap in front of an audience. Here's something you may not know - the experince, in the end, is no different, really.

                        Obviously, anyone who thinks drugs are bad has bought into the propaganda machine and can't possibly be thinking for themselves.
                        So here's another rationale against drugs, which perhaps you haven't heard before. I dislike the fact that you can get happiness from a pill; you don't have to work for it, you don't have to accomplish anything, nor contribute anything to the society of which you are a part. There is no impetus to do anything beyond what it takes to get the happy pill. All the previous markers of achievement become meaningless. Forget making yourself happy by doing for others, oh hell no, just pop that pill or stick that needle and you're flying high. But see, those previous markers of achievement had to be worked for, and by doing that work, society as a whole benefits.
                        As more people become non-contributing members of society, that leaves more for the rest of us to do. Our society falls behind and is surpassed by other societies, but pretty soon we'll all be too blitzed to give a shit. Personally, I see this as a great tragedy for our country, but patriotism has gone out the window too. GFD.

                            Or are you going to back that up with something? Where do you get "drama queen"? Or is that what you call people who actually do have well-reasoned opinions? I don't believe you've addressed a single point from my argument. To wit: if you can get what you want without working for it, your incentive to do useful things plummets, and a smaller quantity of useful things happens overall as a result. In the end, we all suffer.

                              We have two heroin junkies in our basement. One holds a steady job and pays rent. The other is a total fuckup and leeches off of the first. Both have a five bag a day habit.

                                drugs and alcohol: means to an end or end itself ? drugs and alcohol are used for all sorts of reasons: recreation, relaxtion, mood altering, mind expansion, social acceptance, etc. however, if you're just hanging out with them all the time they just become the end itself.

                            It really is a capitalist argument, at heart. In capitalism, rewards come to those that work the hardest. All this hard work benefits society as a whole, so everybody wins. People are free to be as slack as they wish, but will probably end up living in a cardboard box. The problem as I see it, is that anything that removes that impetus to work hard robs society of the efforts of people who would otherwise need to contribute in order to win happiness, or at least a roof over their heads. Granted, as others have pointed out ad nauseam, there are those that use and still contribute, but I would argue that their contributions are lessened. On the flip side, maybe they have to work even harder to support that 5-bag habit...but its just as likely that this would lead to crime.
                            The socialist systems of Europe, on the other hand, remove this impetus as a matter of legislation. The social welfare programs in place have a detrimental effect that can be witnessed in European unemployment levels. Their tax rates are rising as a result, and the ongoing clashes over 'pension reform' are also symptomatic. The lesson is that forcing a dwindling workforce to carry an increasing load of freeloaders is a great way to ruin an economy. To get back on topic though, it makes more sense to do drugs in Europe, as they'll guarantee your livlihood there. It just happens to be a bad fit for our socio-economic model.

                              I'd wager that work harder than you, and make more money than you, and pay more taxes than you, every day, and I probably always will. I'd wager that I also help more people than you in my daily life, by both volunteering my time and my money to those causes that I believe deserve my funding. So suck it, you sanctimonious prick. Drug use in and of itself is not a moral issue, and the only people that must make it so are those who have no real ethics to base thier actions on, so they choose arbitrary elements to judge others by.

                          To "help others" while you're high, you know.

                          And honestly, I don't get happiness out of drugs. Happiness comes from the rest of my life. Drugs just make things look a little different, so I can see them from other angles.

                          Oh, christ, why I waste my time talking to you, I don't know.

                            Of course, it might be that you have time in great abundance, and nothing better to do. In any case, are you incapable of looking at things from other angles without some sort of pill? I would certainly hope not.

                          I go out to dinner, I pay a man I don't know to give me food and make me happy. I did not have to prepare and labor over that meal to get a little bit of happiness from it, I asked for it, and I got it. It's the same thing with drugs. Sometimes, I just want to pay someone I don't know for something so that I can relax and feel good. Like eating out, it's not something you can do all the time, but it's nice once in a while. And it doesn't mean I'm unhappy with life because I like to feel funny once in a while.

                          Is eating in restaurants for losers, too?

                          I dislike the fact that you can get happiness from a pill; you don't have to work for it, you don't have to accomplish anything, nor contribute anything to the society of which you are a part.

                          Yes, because true happiness should always come at the expense of TERRIBLE CONSEQUENCES.

                  A vocodin or two once or twice year, a beer here and there. Anything other than that is too much trouble to get safely, or not the high I'm looking for.

                  My point is, you're pegging people as "druggies" based on an arbitrary line drawn in the sand of possible substances to enjoy by Nancy Reagan. You use substances yourself. Who the fuck are you to judge which ones are acceptable, based on the political machinations of a woman who presided over one of the largest, most unjust jailings of American Citizens in history?

                  Gawd - you've just bought the propoganda, hook, line, and sinker. Howzabout you expunge every substance that affects mood from your intake for a year, and then come back and act superior.

                    I find it amusing how you attempt to tar all of society with the same brush in an attempt to rationalize your own behavior. There is, however, a big fuckin' difference between the caffeine in a cup of coffee and the concentrated chemicals to be found in a vicodin tablet. It's not all or nothing, sweetie. There is use, and there is abuse.

                      You're the one who assumed that because I admit to using drugs, that I must be a raving addict. You're the one who assumes that anyone who uses recreationally must be abusing steadily. You make too many assumptions with no real information to back it up.

                        I'll point out that at no time did I make such an accusation. Freudian slip, maybe? I've made generalizations, yes, but I never said "Gribble is a drug addict." Basically what I've said is that I think drug abusers are weak people that can't face reality without a crutch. I think that if your life is as full as you claim, you probably shouldn't need to pop the occasional vicodin, but it's your body to fuck up.

                          I need to pet my cat. I need to use the bathroom. I need to eat food, to breathe, to shower when I get stinky. I don't need to pop vicodin. Sometimes, I like to.

                          You're right, you never called me a raving addict. You have (at least by inference if not outright) called me a drug abuser, which I resent. I'm a drug user. Abuse is my its very nature behavior that allows the desire to use the drug to overtake other, more important concerns in life. I may be a masturbation abuser, but not drugs.

                          You're going to live happily in your little black and white world, until one day someone you know and respect and care about turns out to be a recreational drug user. And that person will change your mind, or you will lose a great and valuable relationship. I wish you the best.

                            I realize that not all is black and white, and I do have people close to me (very close) that abuse. I don't like it, I pity them for it, but because I love them I keep that to myself. Just because someone has a character flaw, that doesn't mean that I would write them off.
                            Ah, masturbation abuse. And a while back, blowjobs at SCA gatherings. Gribble, I find you textually attractive. ;-)

Oh, and since their family likes to put pictures of their kids everywhere you get to see a before and after smack everywhere she goes. let me tell you, this girl was once quite fetching. now her face is sallow and blemished, the only expression it can half manage is a scowl, her teeth are like baked beans, and her figure is so imaciated she's less like a deliah's model and more like an incan mummy. In short, I wouldn't fuck her with your dick.

    Even if Mr. Limbaugh is sober as a judge, he is still one of the biggest wankers on radio. Bill O Reilly comes to his master's rescue by asserting that his addiction is nothing like a crackhead's or a street level heroin user, when the troof of the matter is, a junkie is just that, a fuckin' junkie, and ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Limbaugh is a junkie. He broke the law to get his high on so what makes him better than a crackhead who pawns his mother's flat screen T.V.? Rush has enough money to give his addiction all the attention it needs.Maybe he'll overdose on the air and really give us something to talk about.Fuck Rush and all his devout fans.
