Abuse of free speech liberties

I agree with two letters that appeared in The Union Jan. 30. The first letter was titled “Ditch the insults, open your minds.” The second letter was titled, “Return balance to talk radio.”

I agree talk radio has gone too far! Rush Limbaugh takes “freedom of speech” much too far. He uses half-truths, racial slurs and has made up songs that degrade the president and other officials. He makes the problems remaining from previous administrations to have been made by the Obama presidency.

I have two signs I place in my car’s windshield saying … “Rush Limbaugh Wants Obama To Fail” and the other says “Crush Rush – Boycott His Sponsors.”

There are enough problems for the president without people like Rush stating discontent with everything the president says or does.
