Rush Drop Kicked

Today Rush Limbaugh was apparently drop kicked out of the investment group attempting to purchase the St Louis Rams.  Limbaugh, always the lightning rod, had drawn flags from owners, players, and the NFL commissioner due to previous comments Rush made about Philadelphia quarterback Donovan McNabb.

The Watchman will leave it to others to debate whether or not Rush was slandered or libeled by anyone during this process.  Ultimately the courts will decide that issue.  Two key conservative principles were demonstrated here: the right of free men to do as they wish with their private property and the right of free men to associate or not associate with others as they please.

Rush had no god-given right to become an owner of a NFL franchise, only the god-given opportunity.  He took advantage of that opportunity and failed.  Such is the nature of the American free market system.

The government played no role in this drama.  When was the last time you could say that about anything.
