Quote# 72516

You know, a couple of days after the health care bill had been signed into law Obama ran around all over the country saying, "Hey, you know, I'm looking around. The earth hadn't opened up. There's no Armageddon out there. The birds are still chirping." I think the earth has opened up. God may have replied. This volcano in Iceland has grounded more airplanes -- airspace has more affected -- than even after 9/11 because of this plume, because of this ash cloud over Northern and Western Europe. At the Paris airport they're telling people to head to the train station to catch trains out of France, and when people get to the train station they're telling people, "There aren't any seats until at least April 22nd," basically a week from now. It's got everybody in a shutdown. Earth has opened up. I don't know whether it's a rebirth or Armageddon. Hopefully it's a rebirth, God speaking.

LMFAO! Oh, rush! Look at you, pandering to your ignorant base. You are truly the lulz.

So wait,
to punish Obama for the healthcare bill, a volcano on a distant island opens up and wreaks havoc on air traffic on another continent.

With other words, in your opinion other countries get punished for things happening within the USA?

Well, while this version of "godly justice" would definitely be consistent with the bible (there are lots of cases in the bible of innocents getting punished for things other people do) you would ask if you really think that a god who uses such a version of "justice" would be worth getting worshipped

So God decides to punish teh eebil liberul elites in Washington by having a volcano affect the travel industry and economy on an entirely different continent?

Better yet, he sends tornadoes to destroy towns and homes in Mississippi, in the midst of his beloved Bible Belt....

God has really poor aim, them. Why not open the earth in DC, perhaps swallowing the White House? Why do it in some other, unrelated country, making it look like a coincidence? Is he just passive-aggressive?

So the health care bill in the US, that's similar to something the Republitards tried to push through many years ago, caused a VOLCANO in ICELAND to erupt, which then blew ash all over North-western EUROPE which had nothing to do with anything at all? That is basically what he's saying right? Medical care causes volcano eruptions? I must be missing something here, but what? No, no, no. This doesn't just make no sense, it actually makes negative sense if such a thing is possible. Isn't this Rush Limbaugh guy fairly well known? Why has he not been euthanised and turned into glue or something else useful by now instead of the waste of resources that he currently is?

Sure, God did open up the Earth and grounded every airplane in Europe. But then he changed his mind and turned the clouds of ash to clouds of steam instead.

Btw, the eruption started in the end of 2009.

It seems God is less pissed now than when Vesuvius destroyed Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 AD.
What happened around that time? Oh, yeah, some people started calling themselves Christians.
No deaths have been reported yet from the Eyjafjallajökull eruption, have there? No cities destroyed? Only lots of stranded tourists...

We have notice nothing, apart from the closed airports, and we're about as close to Iceland as New York is to Dallas.
It seems, once again, that God looks favorably on secular Sweden.

Edit. Sorry, we have noticed something: there's a shortage of HTC Desire phones as they haven't been able to transport them here.
That is a real tragedy, isn't it? ;-)

Or, just as something to think about, its a fucking volcano erupting. from what I understand, the Earth doesn't give a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut what we're doing. It's going to do what it does, whenever it wants to do it.

"OH NOES! GODDIDIT!!"

We already knew that your God has terrible aim.

It's gods way of saying "Don't oppose financial reform the way you opposed health care.

Rush is gods punishment.

God delays planes in Europe because the USA passes a health care bill? Did he cause the Chinese earthquake because of Obama, too? Is he ignoring, say the illegal government and redshirt riots in Thailand and so forth because he doesn't care what happens in countries that don't contain Rush Limbaugh?

I dunno. Given the quality of God's aim, I'd expect Vesuvius was a reaction to something the Aztecs were doing.

Then it's funny how practically the rest of the Western world has long had universal health care yet God never took a blind bit of notice.

4/26/2010 5:42:17 AM



Wow, I'm shocked to see this was spewed by good ol' Rush. I was thinking "typical fundie" as I was reading but, to my utter surprise and amazement, this 100% grade-A bullshit was concocted by the Big Man himself. Bravo, Rush, bravo for the best laugh I've read yet today.

And all those other volcanos that happened over the years were?

So...America gets Health Care (I seem to recall some Jewish Hippie being fond of healing for free, now that I think about it, BTW) and God makes a volcano in Iceland go boom.

Good to see his aim is improving.

Rush, most of your listening audience has likely never heard of Iceland and couldn't find Europe, western or otherwise, on a map of Europe.

Stop pandering to the ignorant.

Because it's not like volcanoes aren't a natural part of our planet's geological activity or anything that erupt all the time.

Also why is God punishing the wrong continent?

Why is god sending tornadoes to the Bible belt for that matter?

YOU'RE SENDING MIXED SIGNALS, GOD.

Rush is having some acid flashbacks.

BLAKE THE EUROPEAN!

First He hit Haiti, and now Europe.


His aim is getting worse.

I've always thought that God had a bad aim and a poor sense of judgment. For instance, His Catholic Church has spent centuries being nasty to humanity and abusive to His children and so He punishes it by making it wealthier and wealthier as the years roll by. That's very poor judgment.

I never acknowledge His existence , or the existence of any other deities for that matter, and He makes earthquakes to try and punish me. But He always misses me and seems consistently to hit places in Asia instead. That's a very poor aim.

I knew Rush Limbaugh had fried his brains a long time ago. This simply confirms it.
Hey, Rush! If God hates universal health care (which is NOT what Obama signed into law, by the way), why hasn't he levelled Iceland, along with most of Europe, Canada, and Japan?
You fat fucking retard.

So God punishes Europe for an American healthcare bill? Apparently, God doesn't understand geography.
