Repeat criminal
Various CBS stations are reporting that the fat drug addict in trouble again
Sources have confirmed to CBS4 News that conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh has been detained at Palm Beach International Airport for the possible possession of illegal prescription drugs Monday evening.

Limbaugh was returning on a flight from the Dominican Republic when officials found the drugs, among them Viagra.

He just got a sweetheart deal for his admitted abuse of perscription drugs that allowed him to enter rehab and have his record expunged if he stayed clean. What should we do with this kind of incurable repeat criminal who takes advantage of our kindness? Lets go to the record.
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.

I'm appalled at people who simply want to look at all this abhorrent behavior and say, "Hey, you know, we can't control it anymore. People are going to do drugs anyway. Let's legalize it." It's a dumb idea. It's a rotten idea, and those who are for it are purely, 100 percent selfish.

In the audio link below, I go into detail about these non-thinking talking points that "you can't tell people what to do with their bodies" and "you can't legislate morality." First of all, we tell people what they can do to their bodies all the time--no cocaine, no prostitution, no throwing yourself off a building. Second, laws are nothing but defining morality!

He's right, people like him don't deserve any comapassion.

Update: The AP is only mentioning the Viagra, saying the problem was that Viagra is a prescription drug and the name on the bottle wasn't Limbaugh's. If that's all it is, then it would be excessive to terminate his probation because of it. Though, you have to wonder why someone, while trying to live by the terms of his probation, would be that casual about a prescription. I would be completely paranoid about making sure every pill in my vicinity was properly documented. Of course, I wouldn't have received the sweetheart deal that he did. in the first place.
