First time ever?
So during the 1930's you think the middle class was growing faster than the lower class?
You think that during the civil war the middle class was growing faster than the middle class?
You constantly display your ignorance for everyone to see.
In 2011, middle-income tier included 51% of all adults; back in 1971, using the same income boundaries, it had included 61%. 2 The hollowing of the middle has been accompanied by a dispersion of the population into the economic tiers both above and below. The upper-income tier rose to 20% of adults in 2011, up from 14% in 1971; the lower-income tier rose to 29%, up from 25%. However, over the same period, only the upper-income tier increased its share in the nation’s household income pie. It now takes in 46%, up from 29% four decades ago. The middle tier now takes in 45%, down from 62% four decades ago. The lower tier takes in 9%, down from 10% four decades ago.

Toyota Motor Corp. said it will move 3,000 jobs from Torrance to new North American headquarters in Plano, Texas, over the next three years.
The move will affect 2,000 workers in Toyota's U.S. sales and marketing arm and 1,000 positions in its financial services business. That will leave about 2,300 Toyota employees in California....
You really think the 3,000 jobs will have an indirect impact of 97,000 other jobs in California?
You're smarter than that... you have to be.

Byrd said he was racist?
Do you have a quote form Byrd where he admits to being racist, or are you just making stuff up again?

His "command" of the English language is clearly quite poor. Keep your words simple and your sentences short when talking to him.

Rush said that, but it was early in his career in the 1970's, when he was a DJ, rather than a talk show host.
A remark clearly beyond the pale, but I do give some slack to things people said 40 years ago in their "youth."
I don't know if his opinions have changed, but surely he is smarter now and would not make such a remark today.
On September 25, 2009, Rush said of Native Americans:
"Holocaust?" Ninety million Indians? Only four million left? They all have casinos -- what's to complain about?
On November 15, 2011, Limbaugh defended Newt Gingrich for describing Spanish as "the language of living in a ghetto":
In my mind, there's nothing wrong with it. I don't instinctively know what's wrong with it. There is a language of the ghetto. There is a language of the barrio. And it's not good.
On January 19, 2011, Limbaugh mocked the speech of Chinese president Hu Jintao:
Hu Jintao was just going, "Ching cha. Ching chang cho chow. Cha Chow. Ching Cho. Chi ba ba ba. Kwo kwa kwa kee. Cha ga ga. Ching chee chay. Ching zha bo ba. Chang cha. Chang cho chi che. Cha dee. Ooooh chee bada ba. Jee jee cho ba." Nobody was translating, but that's the closest I can get.
