Rushbo: Drug tests and no guns
According to the terms of the deal that were struck so the bloviating drug fiend can escape a prescription fraud charge, Rush Limbaugh will have to submit to drug testing, continue his treatment, and not own a gun. If he complies with the terms of the agreement for 18 months, the fraud charge will be dismissed.
The Shakes household was fervently hoping he would be required to perform community service--namely compulsory retirement, which would be the greatest service to the community we could imagine. Of course, the Shakes household has little sympathy for anyone who says things like this:
"There's nothing good about drug use. We know it. It destroys individuals. It destroys families. Drug use destroys societies. Drug use, some might say, is destroying this country. And we have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs, using drugs, importing drugs. And the laws are good because we know what happens to people in societies and neighborhoods which become consumed by them. And so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up. What this says to me is that too many whites are getting away with drug use. Too many whites are getting away with drug sales. Too many whites are getting away with trafficking in this stuff. The answer to this disparity is not to start letting people out of jail because we're not putting others in jail who are breaking the law. The answer is to go out and find the ones who are getting away with it, convict them and send them up the river, too.Ã¢â‚¬Â
