That's over 60 pills a day. You've got to be kidding me. BTW, how was the buzz?
No -- it's about 10 pills per day. Buzz is outstanding -- I highly recommend it (one, not ten)[:D]

I have read he was purchasing an average of 2,000 a month, hence the 60 a day.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Yeah, I figured you probably knew arithmetic. [:D] In that case, he was either getting some for his buds, and/or making sure he had enough for a rainy day (month? year?) [8D]

I have to believe that if he were distributing, it would have been for social reasons. Why would he sell? The relatively paltry amounts of cash he would make wouldn't justify the risk of getting caught. I think he was hoarding for personal use. He is a creature of excessive behaviors.

i like listening to him when I get a chance. He makes me laugh.

I understand you build up a tolerance to that stuff pretty quick. I read an article about a doc that got busted and his patients were taking a goofy amount of pills.

Yeah, I'm sure you do, but I'm also sure you'd be dead long before your tolerance reaches 60 oxycontins/day. [:D]

If Rush broke the law, he should pay a price commensurate with the gravity of the offense. Period. The prosecutor had better cross his/her T's and dot his/her I's. I don't see Rush going away without an expensive fight.
I'll bet Rush wishes he were in the Holy Land of Liberalism now: California. Huge piles of cash seems to buy positive outcomes in court over there.

BTW, WTF is going wrong with FL sex offenders and child protection system? If I were from FL I'd be pissed off. No wait, it pisses me of and I'm not from FL.

I don't know - something doesn't smell right about the amount of pills going thru his hands. He not only was scammming doctors in Palm Springs, he was pulling in scads more off the Internet, something the Feds don't seem to interested in charging him with. Thousands of pills were moving into this guy's possesion every month. There was more than simple abuse going on here - interstate transport of narcotics, prescription fraud, and probably possesion with intent to distribute. Your average homey would be looking at 10 years. The only thing I want to see is equality before the law.
What...you think he was dealing drugs? The guy is a gazillionaire, why would he deal drugs? That doesn't make sense.

I think he got hooked from chronic pain medication and went doctor shopping instead of coming to his doctor with his problem. Folks who have vast wealth and power sometimes forget that they're subject to the same laws as everybody else. The dumbass.

Drug laws are stupid, anyway. Because it's the law, I understand the prosecutor pursuing this case. But it is a stupid set of laws we have and I just don't understand why we continue to put up with them.
