    Skiers blowing out knees is a big burden on orthopedic surgeons and physical thereapy clinics.

    Best outlaw skiing and eliminate this undue burden on our medical care industry!!

    And therein you find Limbaugh's point, which the originator of this thread failed to recognize.

    Once we nationalize health care, the government has a much greater opportunity to mandate controls on lifestyle in the name of health care.

    A very dangerous precedent could be set.

    There was much sarcasm in the Limbaugh tirade from which this example was taken - but a clear message of warning as well...

    Face it. Limbaugh makes his money by stating the outrageous and obsurd. We can no more control people who hang glide and roller blade as we can control idiots who keep building back their beach homes after a hurricane takes them out. FEMA and our tax money pays for that.

    Its best to sit around all the time, stuff 5000 calories into our gullet every day and get hooked on oxycontin.

    That's a far healthier lifestyle and much easier on the healthcare system.

    That one has got to be the most off the wall thing he has ever said.

    It is certainly up there near the top. To think that the majority of republicans feel his speaks for the party. That is frightening.

    I still think blaming budget deficits on women getting the vote is #1. :cuckoo:

    August 8, 2008
    RUSH: Now we're told the night Hillary speaks is the anniversary of women getting the vote, which is what started the welfare state that now strangles us, by the way. If women had never gotten the vote we wouldn't have a budget deficit, but that's another story.

    At least Rush paid his own money to mitigate his indulgences and addictions.
