This week, Limbaugh’s attention was focused on the violent union response to Michigan’s right-to-work legislation. He put these shocking attacks down to Democratic union members who are “desperate to hold on to their ‘freebies'” (FREE audio).
Rush also contended that “union dues are a Democrat money laundering operation” (FREE audio).
“For example, in Wisconsin, 90 percent of the stimulus money in Wisconsin went to unions, public sector unions. … Teachers didn’t lose their jobs, while everybody else did,” Rush explained. “And since they kept their jobs, they continued to pay dues. And the dues are what end up being donated back to the Democrat Party or used by the union to fund advertising to elect Democrats.”
Dr. Savage told listeners the story of Hanukkah and explained what this ancient Jewish festival can teach modern people of all faiths.
Reflecting on the miraculous holy oil that burned for eight nights, Savage explained (FREE audio), “No matter how distraught we may feel, no matter how wrecked we may believe we are, there is always a small amount of ‘holy oil’ left within all of us, which can be reignited and carry us through the darkest hour.”

Speaker John Boehner has been called a lot of things, but “Monty Hall” probably isn’t one of them – until Mark Levin compared him to the game show host on the air this week.
Boehner is “Mr. Let’s Make a Deal,” quipped Levin, “but without Monty Hall’s intelligence” (FREE audio).
Levin also explained why large portions of Obamacare could end up being tossed out. It depends upon how many governors will refuse to expand Medicaid coverage, he said, and whether the Republican controlled House of Representatives is willing to put the brakes on this entitlement program, “which already takes up almost 50 percent of the redistribution of wealth, that is, all federal transfers.”
The long time radio host is returning to the airwaves.
