How Do I Celebrate Independence?

RUSH: Nancy in Columbia, South Carolina. Hello and welcome.CALLER: Thank you, Rush, for taking my call. I really appreciate it.RUSH: You bet.CALLER: I'm a proud aunt and godmother of an Army Airborne Ranger, Michael Behenna, first lieutenant. My question is: How am I supposed to celebrate Independence Day when we send our troops overseas, and then we persecute and then prosecute them for doing their job, and we lock 'em up in Leavenworth. I have a nephew serving 25 years for defending himself...

Lefty Elites Think They're Immune from the Havoc of Their Policies

RUSH: Our official climatologist here, Dr. Roy Spencer, University of Alabama at Huntsville sent me a question after hearing my last dissertation: "Equality of outcomes. How can a senator or congressman, for example -- after working to achieve their station in life, how can a senator or congressman -- then argue that everybody else needs to be the same?" Now, Snerdley, you're acting in there like, "Yeah, right." What do you mean, "Yeah, right"? Do you think it's a good question? It is a good...

Fighting Against Dependence Day

RUSH: So, ladies and gentlemen, for 232, 233 years on July 4th, America celebrated Independence Day. And now people rightly ask, "Are we headed to Dependence Day?" Not if I have anything to say about it. "When in the course of human events..." Seven words that started the Declaration of Independence and begot the United States of America: "When in the course of human events..." Independence -- a single word, a glorious idea, a word that guided us and governed us for 233 years or whatever it is....

Our Miraculous Declaration of Independence (and Rush's Clubs)

RUSH: Here's Jerry in Cookeville, Tennessee. Hi, Jerry. Thank you for calling. You're on Open Line Friday. You're next.CALLER: Hi, Rush.RUSH: Hi.CALLER: First off, I'd just like to say to you and all your staff, a very happy Independence Day. Out of 233 years, this might be the last one as we know it to be a real Independence Day. I called to ask you: "What kind of golf clubs do you use?" I mean, are they Pings, or --RUSH: No. My bag is full of different kinds. I have a Cleveland Launcher...

We Cannot Eliminate Coal, and Global Warming is a Hoax Anyway!

RUSH: I have to think that the Democrat Party, before all this is said and done, is going to destroy itself. They're going to enact things here that the American people, most of whom are going to be blindsided by it, are just not going to understand and put up with. They have no idea it's coming. The question, the only question is: "Will this giant overreaching occur in time, or will it occur after Obama and these people are entrenched and there's nothing that can be done about it?" For example,...

Hospitality Industry Suffers Thanks to Obama's Assault on Prosperity

RUSH: Here's Conan, as we go back to the phones. Conan in Charlottesville, Virginia. Nice to have you on the EIB Network. Hi.CALLER: Fifteen-handicap, two-supporting dittos, Rush.RUSH: Thank you very much, sir.CALLER: Well, I represent an uncounted and invisible member of the unemployed class: the small business owner that can no longer afford to take a paycheck.RUSH: Well, that's the same thing as being unemployed. How many employees do you have?CALLER: Well, I had about 15. I'm down to...

Powell Worries About the Very Deficits and Spending He Endorsed

RUSH: Now, Colin Powell. I've been wondering during all of this job loss and all of this expansion of government: Where are Colin Powell and Tom Ridge? You know Colin Powell and Tom Ridge have both said that I'm not any good for the Republican Party, and people are saying, "Yeah, we need Colin Powell. He's the ideal Republican!" A guy who endorsed and voted for Obama!I'm saying, "Where are these people?" I mean, I guess by their silence they support what's going on here. They support every job...

Hospitals Cave to Obama's Threats

RUSH: Obama is close to having a number of hospitals, part of a hospital association, on his side now for national care. And I want to tell you how he does this. He calls in each part of the health care industry -- the hospitals, the insurance companies, big business retailers, big business providers -- and he makes it clear that they can join him or he will punish them. So what they do is cut the best deal they think they can and they [the Obama administration] announce that they are supported...

America Needs to Stand Up to This Schoolyard Bully's Failed Agenda

RUSH: We always try to go to the phones earlier than normal today. Normally we don't get to the phones 'til the second hour of this program, but on Friday -- since we're urging people, inviting them to call and telling them the show is theirs, the content's theirs when we go to the phones -- we try to go earlier, and I'm going to do that today.

Obama Said We're Out of Money; But Now He's Pitching Porkulus 2!

RUSH: I found a quote, by the way, back from May 23rd. Because the last couple of days, the Obama administration has been leaking the possibility of a second stimulus out there. I remember the sobering holiday interview with C-SPAN back on May 23rd. This is during the Memorial Day weekend. Obama said to Americans, "We are out of money." Steve Scully of C-SPAN broke from a week of having Washington press Corps's probing questions for the new president, and Scully said, "You know, the numbers, $1.7...

This is an EIB company-wide holiday, and I am EIB. But I didn't declare it an EIB company-wide holiday. It just happened. So I was told yesterday, "We're playing a best-of show today on tape."

We Cannot Eliminate Coal, and Global Warming is a Hoax Anyway!

RUSH: I have to think that the Democrat Party, before all this is said and done, is going to destroy itself. They're going to enact things here that the American people, most of whom are going to be blindsided by it, are just not going to understand and put up with. They have no idea it's coming. The question, the only question is: "Will this giant overreaching occur in time, or will it occur after Obama and these people are entrenched and there's nothing that can be done about it?" For example,...

Powell Worries About the Very Deficits and Spending He Endorsed

RUSH: Now, Colin Powell. I've been wondering during all of this job loss and all of this expansion of government:: Where are Colin Powell and Tom Ridge? You know Colin Powell and Tom Ridge have both said that I'm not any good for the Republican Party, and people are saying, "Yeah, we need Colin Powell. He's the ideal Republican!"

Hospitals Cave to Obama's Threats

RUSH: Obama is close to having a number of hospitals, part of a hospital association, on his side now for national care. And I want to tell you how he does this. He calls in each part of the health care industry -- the hospitals, the insurance companies, big business retailers, big business providers -- and he makes it clear that they can join him or he will punish them. So what they do is cut the best deal they think they can and they [the Obama administration] announce that they are supported...

Obama Said We're Out of Money; But Now He's Pitching Porkulus 2!

RUSH: I found a quote, by the way, back from May 23rd. Because the last couple of days, the Obama administration has been leaking the possibility of a second stimulus out there. I remember the sobering holiday interview with C-SPAN back on May 23rd. This is during the Memorial Day weekend. Obama said to Americans, "We are out of money." Steve Scully of C-SPAN broke from a week of having Washington press Corps's probing questions for the new president, and Scully said, "You know, the numbers, $1.7...

How Do I Celebrate Independence?

RUSH: Nancy in Columbia, South Carolina. Hello and welcome.CALLER: Thank you, Rush, for taking my call. I really appreciate it.RUSH: You bet.CALLER: I'm a proud aunt and godmother of an Army Airborne Ranger, Michael Behenna, first lieutenant.

I have a nephew serving 25 years for defending himself...

Lefty Elites Think They're Immune from the Havoc of Their Policies

RUSH: Our official climatologist here, Dr. Roy Spencer, University of Alabama at Huntsville sent me a question after hearing my last dissertation: "Equality of outcomes. How can a senator or congressman, for example -- after working to achieve their station in life, how can a senator or congressman -- then argue that everybody else needs to be the same?" Now, Snerdley, you're acting in there like, "Yeah, right." What do you mean, "Yeah, right"? Do you think it's a good question? It is a good...

Fighting Against Dependence Day

RUSH: So, ladies and gentlemen, for 232, 233 years on July 4th, America celebrated Independence Day. And now people rightly ask, "Are we headed to Dependence Day?"
