Farewell, Mr. Boortz

For my money, the single most talented voice in the modern history of talk radio is retiring later this month. Not “one of” the most talented — the most talented. Neal Boortz began his career in radio while in college at Texas A&M, but his long stint in commercial radio started as one of the many individuals he would, over the years to follow, continually cut off: opinionated callers. Boortz in the late 1960s was a frequent caller to a local Atlanta talk show, and when the host died unexpectedly, he went from brash caller to brash host. But Boortz’s rise to the Radio Hall of fame

Good luck, Neal...

About his leaving at the top of his game. Can´t handle four more years of talking about The Jerk:

His crystal ball has been very accurate these past years. He was one of the very few conservatives who called for Barry winning a 2nd term. I didn´t want to believe his prediction....sigh.....

He always said he had an escape plan. What really scares me is I think he has seen the need to execute that plan.

Boortz has made quite a nice living off bashing welfare recipients,illegal aliens,government schools and unions.The thing is he´s not bashful about any of it but rarely does what he says make front page news.If Rush made the same comments as Boortz,he´d been run of the air a long time ago.I usually listen to him when Rush is off because I can´t stand his fill ins.

I guess Herman Cain is taking over his show and I really don´t want to hear what he has to say about anything.

The "Boo Got Shot" thing makes me cry with laughter EVERY time I listen. Royal Marshall (Neal´s long-time producer to died a couple of years ago) was a treasure, and is dearly missed.

Neal has been dead-on in his predictions, and I didn´t want to believe them, either. But he was right. We wish you well, Mr. Boortz.

Many people still remember the huge conflagration between Bill O´Reilly & Neal Boortz.

Lots of laughs. Neal made a lot of friends.

Neal retired in January, and I miss him.
I was delighted to hear him fill in for Hannity yesterday.
Miss you, Neal. I never heard anyone ever win an argument against him.

What am I missing here? Neal retired months ago, and this article is dated January 2013.

Anyway, Neal was indeed a great talkmeister and I especially miss the Royal days, RIP Royal.

That said, I must defend Herman Cain. Even though I was never for his nomination (not that he wouldn´t have made a much better president than our present one), he has done a really magnificent service over the years, through his radio talk shows on WSB, of educating people, including black people, about conservatism. How many black people would have had the courage to go so very much against the grain of 99.999 % of his peers here? I often wonder how he even survives going to his church services. He deserves great respect and a Medal of Honor for what he has done with his opportunities to speak out.

As for the allegations against him, I tend not to believe them and tend to believe he was set up. Even if true, though, that would not alter the facts about his career, nor the above sentiments.

Anyway, thank you, Neal - and thank you Herman.

Amid tears, mom takes stand,
tells of baby being shot
Marietta Daily Journal, by Nikki Wiley    Original Article
Posted By: bubber- 8/28/2013 2:09:01 PM     Post Reply
MARIETTA — The mother of a slain 13-month-old boy took the stand Tuesday and tearfully told jurors how she witnessed her baby being shot between the eyes by a young man she’d never met before. De’Marquise Elkins is accused of shooting Antonio Santiago execution style on March 21 while Antonio was in his stroller returning home from the post office in Brunswick. Because Elkins was not 18 years old at the time of the shooting, he cannot be sentenced to death, but faces life in prison if convicted. The trial was moved to Cobb County following concerns about media coverage and racial tensions in Brunswick.

Marietta - After shooting 13-month-old Antonio Santiago between the eyes, prosecutors say De’Marquise Elkins stashed the murder weapon under a friend’s couch in Brunswick. Then his mother and sister threw it in a saltwater pond, Cobb County jurors heard from witnesses Monday. Kicking off the second week of testimony in the case against De’Marquise Elkins, accused of killing Antonio, the jury heard how he tried to hide the .22-caliber revolver and how his family allegedly disposed of it. The trial was moved to Cobb because of concerns about pre-trial media coverage influencing a jury,

Marietta - De’Marquise Elkins had the right to remain silent when he was arrested on March 22 and charged with the shooting death of a 1-year-old baby in Brunswick. But what Elkins allegedly told police as they were taking him into custody is now being used against him in the high-profile murder trial playing out in a Cobb County courtroom. Police testifying Friday said Elkins, 18, bragged to officers who arrested him that “you ain’t got s--- on me. You ain’t got no gun.” Police hadn’t told him the murder he’s accused of involved a firearm. Elkins, of Brunswick, is charged with murder and cruelty

Star witness admits lying

The star witness in the case against accused baby killer De’Marquise Elkins admitted lying to police, the court and his family more than a dozen times Thursday, giving Elkins’ defense attorneys a chance to take shots at his credibility. The co-defendant and star witness for the prosecution, 15-year-old Dominique Lang of Brunswick, traded in his jail jumpsuit for slacks and a button-down shirt as he testified for more than five hours Thursday against Elkins in front of the Cobb jury for the first time. Lang is accused of being present when police say Elkins shot 13-month-old Antonio Santiago in the face and

Day three of the trial against accused baby killer De’Marquise Elkins ended with an unanswered question about the credibility of a key witness. In the last hour Wednesday, 15-year-old Joe Lang took the stand to testify that he saw Elkins and his co-defendant Dominique Lang together at his grandmother’s home in Brunswick after the shooting took place. Elkins is accused of shooting 13-month-old Antonio Santiago between the eyes in his stroller during the attempted robbery of the toddler’s mother. Elkins faces multiple charges, including murder, but is not eligible for the death penalty because he was not 18 at the time of

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
