Whenever you have an election there are some sore sports or poor losers that will make false acusations against the candidate they didn’t want to win. This has disintigrated into the rediculous with Citizen Wells and Philip J. Berg Esq. Philip Berg has filed spurious claims in the court system claiming that president Obama is not qualified to be the President of the United States. Citizen Wells has been there with him all along the way helping him raise money. Now that these claims have worked all the way through the court system and have been thrown out all the way to the US Supreme Court. The problem I see is that Citizen Wells and Philip J. Berg are still asking for people’s money on their websites to support this spurrios legal claim that has already been through the court system . Where is this money going and how is it all being spent ? Its time for some answers.

Representative Sue Myrick (R) North Carolina supported Rush Limbaugh’s war against the poor and the middle class when she voted against President Obama’s Recovery Package. Like Limbaugh, Sue Myrick doesn’t seem to care about people that are not as fortunate as her. Sue Myrick wants more tax cuts for the rich and corporations so they can invest in sending more of our jobs overseas. Ms. Myrick has turned her back on the hundreds of thousands of unemployed workers of our state to support her rich freinds. We need to do everything possible to make sure Sue Myrick is not re-elected to public office because she doesn’t support the people, she only supports the wealthy. Myricks plan from her own press release doesn’t do anything for people who are unemployed and in trouble, only offers more money to the same people that put our people out of work and sent our jobs overseas.

It must suck to be Rush Limbaugh. It seems like the sad little man has painted himself into a corner. I listened to him say today that there are no conservatives in elected office anymore. That means to me that in Rush Limbaugh’s mind that every Republican voter is an idiot. This is coming from the genius that told all the Republicans to change parties and vote for Hillary because she would be easier to beat that President Obama in the general election. His latest stroke of genius is to state to all of his listeners that he hopes that everything that President Obama does fails. This shows you tha true nature of Rush Limbaugh. He failed miserably during the 2008 election and proved that the conservative movement has changed and that some common sense has prevailed. Now Rush, the spoiled little rich boy is going to take his ball and go home. He is just out to reek havock on the coutry and try to divide people as much as possible. Rush has soiled his repuation and probably destroyed any credibility he once had among the real conservative base. Now all he has left are conspiracy theorists, militia types and hatemongers. One sad little man doesn’t stand a chance against the American people. When you attack your own political party and are already hated by everyone else your days are numbered. Bye Rush.
I recently did some research on Rush Limbaugh, the De facto leader of the conservative movement. De Facto means something not necessarily endorsed by the law but something that is considered to be the norm in everyday use. There seems to be a leadership vacuum in the Republican Party since the conservatives were trounched in the 2008 elections. When President Obama said “Stop listening to Rush Limbaugh if you want to get things done” and didn’t refer to our elected republican leadership I would say that makes Rush Limbaugh the De Facto leader. So who is this Rush Limbaugh, the leader of the conservative movement and arch enemy of the majority of Americans that had the nerve to go out and vote for a candidate not endorsed by the great Maha Rushie as he so lovingly calls himself on his show ? Well of you take even a brief look at Rush Limbaugh you will find that the emperor has no clothes. Rush is just another hypocrite paid a bunch of money to sell commercials on a nationally syndicated radio show. On his show, Rush Limbaugh says he represents conservationism, unfortunately when you look at the life Rush Limbaugh lives, you may see anther story.
Rush Limbaugh the patriot ? When Americans were fighting a dying in Vietnam, Rush took a deferment to go to college. When he flunked out of college he got classified as medically unfit to serve either from a knee injury or a boil on his ass depending where you find the information. Either way, when he could have served the country, he sure didn’t volunteer and actually used the system NOT to serve his country.
Rush Limbaugh, the pillar of family values ? Rush Limbaugh has no children and has been married and divorced 3 times. “Limbaugh was first married on September 24, 1977 to Roxy Maxine McNeely, a sales secretary at radio station WHB in Kansas City, Mo. They were married at the Centenary United Methodist Church in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. In March 1980, McNeely filed for divorce, citing “incompatibility.” They were formally divorced on July 10, 1980.In 1983, Limbaugh married Michelle Sixta, a college student and usherette at the Kansas City Royals Stadium Club. They were divorced in 1990, and she remarried the following year.On May 27, 1994, Limbaugh married Marta Fitzgerald, a 35-year-old aerobics instructor. They were separated on June 11, 2004. Limbaugh announced on the air, “Marta has consented to my request for a divorce, and we have mutually agreed to seek an amicable separation.” The divorce was finalized in December 2004.”
Rush Limbaugh on Law and Order ? Well Rush has had a couple of legal Problems due to illegal drug use. “On October 3, 2003 the National Enquirer reported that Limbaugh was being investigated for illegally obtaining the prescription drugs qxycodone and hydrocodone. On April 28, 2006, Limbaugh and his attorney, Roy Black, went to the Palm Beach County Jail to surrender after a warrant was issued for his arrest on the charge of doctor shopping. According to Teri Barbera, spokeswoman for the Sheriff, during his arrest, Limbaugh was booked, photographed, and fingerprinted, but not handcuffed. He was then released after about an hour on $3,000 bail. After his surrender, he filed a “not guilty” plea to the charge. Prosecutors agreed to drop the charge if Limbaugh paid $30,000 to defray the cost of the investigation. In June 2006, Limbaugh was detained by drug enforcement agents at Palm Beach Airport shortly after cutting the deal on the painkiller charges in April. Customs officials confiscated Viagra from Limbaugh’s luggage as he was returning from the Dominican Republic. The prescription was not in Limbaugh’s name. After he was released with no charges filed,”
Rush Limbaugh the political guru ? During the 2008 election, Rush Limbaugh urged his supporters to crossover, change political parties and vote for Hillary Clinton because Obama would be harder to beat in the general election. This only reenforced that its not about conservatism, its about manipulating the political system and cheating in Rush Limbaugh’s mind. Of course John McCain lost handily. As you know, President Obama prevailed and life goes on. Rush still has his show and the conservative movement is basically dead. Could it be time for the conservatives to find a new leader ?
There isn’t much of an target audience over at WBT-1110 if you look at the different groups of people they spew hate against. Today WBT’s newest Hate Radio Host Tara Servatius was railing against health benefits for Gay and Lesbian Couples employed by our local government. It seems Tara Servatius is promoting the redneck philosophy that straight people are better than gay people and therefore its okay to discriminate against them. I’m sure the other Hate Radio Host Keith Larson will be upset that Tara stole his thunder today. There is hardly a day that goes by that Keith Larson isn’t hateful towards the gay community. Whats even worse is there are people that actually pay Tara and Kieth to spread this kind of anti American trash. I no longer consider WBT a radio station, lets just call it what it is, a daily KKK rally.
Perhaps WBT has forgotten that 61.83% of the people in Mecklenburg County Voted for Barack Obama and 61.59% of the people voted for Kay Hagan. Perhaps when the people at WBT are being hateful towards immigrants, democrats, gay people and Muslims they may want to consider how small their audience is actually getting. It is more than obvious where WBT is heading and I won’t miss it when they are out of business. Charlotte deserves much better and somebody will fill the void with decent programming.
Jeff Katz is no longer the 3pm-6pm host of the WBT afternoon show. Mr. Katz was a polarizing figure ever since his arrival in Charlotte, NC a couple of years ago. His brand of hate politics will not be missed by me or a large segment of the Charlotte region. Hats off to the management of WBT.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: December 1, 2008
Tara Servatius Named
New Afternoon Host at WBT AM & FM
Charlotte, NC (December 1, 2008): Greater Media announces Tara Servatius has been named the new Monday through Friday, 3pm – 6pm afternoon drive on-air host at WBT AM & FM in Charlotte, North Carolina. She will begin her new on-air duties on Monday, December 8th, 2008.

Servatius also recently won a national first place award for column writing from The Society of Professional Journalists. The Charlotte native is a graduate of Charlotte Catholic High School and UNC Chapel Hill’s School of Journalism.
“Tara has increasingly proven to be a superstar in waiting,” said Greater Media Charlotte Vice President and Market Manager Rick Jackson. “Her show is less about politics and more about a journalistic view of how local government operates. She’s a brilliant investigative reporter and effectively constructs her views based on real case studies and supporting data.”
Rick Jackson and WBT Program Director Bill White will be on air Tuesday, December 2nd at 3pm to discuss the programming change and answer listener questions.
