  • Rush and Marta Limbaugh's donation...Thank You!

    Rush Limbaugh, the conservative radio personality and his wife Marta
    donated $200,000 to the Post Astoria fund for the FDNY 3 who died in the line of duty at a hardware store fire/building collapse a few weeks ago.

    Quoted from the Firehouse.com news story....

    "They do things most of us will not do and they sometimes die doing it," he said. "They are unique people, greatly undercompensated relative to what they do.

    "I am overawed by that, as I am by people who volunteer for the armed services."


    We as firefighters might not always agree with Rush's political views, but this shows that what we do transcends politics. Every day, our Brothers and Sisters, career and volunteer firefighters alike answer the call, not knowing if it will be the final alarm.

    I hope that other celebrities (pro sports, media, actors, etc) follow Rush and Marta's lead.

    Thank you, Rush and Marta for helping the families of our fallen brothers.

    It was an incredible gesture... But to clarify Gonzo, you seemed to lump all Firefighters Politcal views together... I must say as a Firefighter I usually do agree with his views, and feel if you spend some time listening to his show you might agree with more than you think.

    Please don't take my remarks as an attack, just my viewpoint.

        Thanks Rush!
        It's only my opinion. I do not speak for any group or organization I belong to or associate with or people I know - especially my employer. If you like it, we can share it, you don't have to give me credit. If you don't, we are allowed to disagree too (but be ready to be challenged, you may be on to something I'm not). That's what makes America great!

          Rush, I'm speechless. But not surprised. Anyone who listens to the man for more than a few minutes realizes that he's smart, well-read, and big-hearted.

          Thanks, Rush!

              I can let the poverty pimp slide on this one. He's from Chicago and Rush is from NY.

              BUT!

              That being said, I now wonder how much sharpton and clinton gave?

                      Major League Baseball catcher Mike Pizza (NY Mets) donated a big chunk of his all star game earnings to the same cause. Thanks Rush and Mike

                          Don't hold your breath. The firefighters that died were neither black nor female.

                            My thoughts exactly Bucks. Say, was that your guys that got hurt back east a few weeks ago? We heard about some Bucks CO. PA ff, getting injured.

                            Also, along with everyone else here, thanks to Piazza and remember we need to thank everybody that donated what they could to benefit these guys families. Some couldn't give $200K and that's OK. They gave what they could.
