A recent CNN poll had 46% voting he should be banned.  I'd like to hear your take on it before I toss in my 2 cents.

No- I am not one for censoring people, no matter how ridiculous or misguided they might be.

No. He's said a lot of stupid things sure, but it shouldn't be illegal for him to say those things.

Banned? No. That would violate his free speech rights. Fired by the people who give him a platform, yes.

Even if he is stupid, why should it matter?

Well, I really shouldn't be surprised.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

Yes, just the same as Westboro should be banned from protesting. Sorry, everyone - as libertarian as I am, I also like to think I know when people have long shown they no longer deserve the right to an opinion.

No, you have a right to speak out even if what you're saying is utterly idiotic and tasteless.

There is a difference between an online forum banning a poster & the federal government banning a radio show...

I'm perfectly aware. Perhaps I wouldn't support it under Obama's administration, since I know for fact they'd use it as an excuse to broaden censorship to hitherto unexplored levels, but I do honestly believe Limbaugh moved well past deserving constitutional rights long ago.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

For an individual. Not for entire masses of people or for an entire country, like Bush did and Obama has done, but for a single person who, I think you'll agree, has reached - or is at least approaching - the worst a human being can get without committing racial genocide or going on a rape spree.

I'm not necessarily saying I disagree, but how do you know this for a fact?

Perhaps it was a poor choice of wording, but I'm simply going on what I've seen, ergo the fact that Obama is essentially copy+paste of Bush with a different letter stuck to his name. I direct you to things such as SOPA, PIPA, the NDAA, and his extension of the PATRIOT Act.

Ah, yes, I momentarily forgot just who proposed it. Still, if he signed the NDAA, he was almost guaranteed to sign SOPA and PIPA.
