Detroit's Model Citizens Line Up for Money from Obama's "Stash"

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Cobo Hall, Detroit. Listen to this. Now, we had audio out of there yesterday. We're going to repeat that. We got new audio today from Ken Rogulski of our affiliate there, WJR. Detroit Free Press: "'Cobo a Scene of Desperation' -- Social service agencies are bracing for more troubles. The economic tsunami washing over metro Detroit swept its casualties to the doors of Cobo Center on Wednesday in the form of 35,000 people so desperate for help with mortgage and utility bills that threats were made, fights broke out and people were nearly trampled." This is Obama's America. This is what happens with socialism. You think these are long lines now, these brainwashed kids in that song on CNN talk about the long lines that are out there, you people haven't seen long lines at the emergency room until Obamacare gets implemented.

"Some were treated by emergency medical workers on site," as they showed up to pick up Obama money. "It was one of the most dramatic signs to date of how deeply joblessness and the home foreclosure crisis have pushed people from the lower and middle ends of the economic scale to seek help wherever they can. City officials said a total of about 65,000 people over the past few days have gotten applications -- due next Wednesday -- for a share of $15.2 million in federal stimulus money to help people avoid foreclosure or quickly rebound from homelessness." But get this. "Ultimately, as few as 3,500 people may receive the help." They think they got riots now, 3,500 people out of 65,000 filling out applications for this? Let's go to audio sound bites, this week here's a portion of Ken Rogulski reporting on WJR in Michigan, two people here in line for Obama cash.

ROGULSKI: Why are you here?

WOMAN #1: To get some money.

ROGULSKI: What kind of money?

WOMAN #1: Obama money.

ROGULSKI: Where's it coming from?

WOMAN #1: Obama.

ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get it?

WOMAN #1: I don't know, his stash. I don't know. (laughter) I don't know where he got it from, but he givin' it to us, to help us.

WOMAN #2: And we love him.

WOMAN #1: We love him. That's why we voted for him!

WOMEN: (chanting) Obama! Obama! Obama! (laughing)

RUSH: Now, yes, I think it's fine to laugh. I think it's frankly fine to laugh. (laughing) It's freaking sad. Obama giving us money from his stash, that's why we love him, Barack Hussein Obama, mmm, mmm, mmm. Here's the report from yesterday, just to refresh your memory.

ROGULSKI: Did you get an application to fill out yet?

WOMAN: I sure did. And I filled it out, and I am waiting to see what the results are going to be.

ROGULSKI: Will you know today how much money you're getting?

WOMAN: No, I won't, but I'm waiting for a phone call.

ROGULSKI: Where's the money coming from?

WOMAN: I believe it's coming from the City of Detroit or the state.

ROGULSKI: Where did they get it from?

WOMAN: Some funds that was forgiven (sic) by Obama.

ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get the funds?

WOMAN: Obama getting the funds from... Ummm, I have no idea, to tell you the truth. He's the president.

ROGULSKI: In downtown Detroit, Ken Rogulski, WJR News.

RUSH: Now, let me put this in perspective. This is the model citizen in Barack Obama's vision. These people are model citizens. These are the people who would be wealthy and rich today were it not for the fact that the achievers of this society since this country was founded stole everything they had. And so Obama looks at these people as victims of an unjust and immoral country, and by God, he's going to make sure that they think he's making it all good for them. And they all do. Dumb, uninformed, shockingly, saddeningly stupid, the model citizen for Barack Obama and the Democrat Party.

Here's an interesting story. This is from the Daily Mail, UK: "Benefits 'Wrecked the British Work Ethic,' New Study Claims." Really? They needed a study for this? "The stigma that once went with claiming benefits rather than working for a living has been lost, a study has claimed. The work ethic that inspired successive generations has ebbed away in the face of the welfare state. Over the past decades each generation has seen more and more people milking the benefit system, which has sapped their will to work, the research from the Centre for Economic Performance said. The findings come at a time when both major parties have committed themselves to cutting numbers who live on incapacity benefit. There are 2.6 million adults who claim the handout meant for the sick and incapable, with around 20 percent thought to be fully able -- but unwilling -- to work."

"The report in the journal CentrePiece said: 'A decline in the work ethic, induced by the expansion of the welfare state, is key to understanding European unemployment.'" No kidding? Well, duh! And guess where we're headed? We're headed in exactly the same direction. Not only with the welfare state, health care, all of it. It's just a shame, it's all being done on purpose. Get this. This is from Houston Chronicle: "Seventeen million in federal stimulus money is being pumped into Houston area social service agencies to prevent homelessness." Here it all comes around again. We have been through this. What cures homelessness is jobs, and jobs, the true cure, is the one thing that Obama is standing in the way of being created, by design.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: "About $17 million in federal stimulus money is being pumped into Houston-area social service agencies to prevent homelessness... Local agencies say they've been helping more people who are homeless for the first time and more people who are on the verge of homelessness with fewer dollars. The stimulus will help fill the gap, agencies said. 'It's the only thing that's keeping people from homelessness,' said Gerald Eckert, social services manager for The Salvation Army of Greater Houston." Has anybody ever heard of jobs? Has anybody ever heard of the concept of jobs? You think people would hear of it. By the way, the story goes on to say that charitable contributions are down, which is why they need the stimulus money.

Well, do you think that if more people were working, if they had jobs, do you -- and maybe a reduction in taxes -- do you think maybe they would have some disposable income to help the needy? See this is part of the plan, folks. Your charitable deductions are about to be vamoosed. No charitable deductions are going to be allowed before long under Obama, and that's part of the plan: Replace charity with government. But again I ask something. I know this is very cold-hearted to say, and I know this is easy for me to say, and I know that it's insensitive as hell for me to say. But maybe if people had jobs they wouldn't need charity. Is this what the stimulus was supposed to be for? Do you think the average person thought it was for charity, i.e., welfare? You think that's what people thought the stimulus bill was?

More news from WJR Detroit. First, listen to this. It's audio sound bite one again, Mister Broadcast Engineer. You are going to hear two citizens in this report, Ken Rogulski, WJR in Detroit. This is two citizens lining up for their share of Obama's stash. These people are model citizens in Barack Obama's America.

ROGULSKI: Why are you here?

WOMAN #1: To get some money.

ROGULSKI: What kind of money?

WOMAN #1: Obama money.

ROGULSKI: Where's it coming from?

WOMAN #1: Obama.

ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get it?

WOMAN #1: I don't know, his stash. I don't know. (laughter) I don't know where he got it from. But, he givin' it to us. To help us.

WOMAN #2: And we love him.

WOMAN #1: We love him. That's why we voted for him!

WOMEN: (chanting) Obama! Obama! Obama! (laughing)

RUSH: Here's the latest from Detroit. You know what Detroit is? Detroit is going through their version of Hurricane Katrina without the levees breaking. Where's FEMA? Less moisture, no levees to break, but Hurricane Katrina has hit Detroit. Listen to this. "Scam artists..." I'm sorry, I can't help laughing at this, either. "Scam artists are charging unsuspecting Detroiters $20 for bogus applications." You have to fill out an application. Sixty five thousand people have shown up for applications. The applications for whatever money they're going to get has to be turned in by next Wednesday. "Homelessness and low income residents had the opportunity to get free applications for homelessness apprehensive and rapid rehousing program stimulus money.

"The response was overwhelmingly, about 65,000 trying to get one of 25,000 available applications. Most were turned away empty-handed." Now, I wonder what those people got turned away thinking it was Obama's stash, that Obama was given the money and all of a sudden they get turned down. Of course they won't blame Obama they're going to blame Detroit they're going to blame whoever was inside Cobo Hall handing these things out so scammers "are preying upon those not fortunate enough to get an application." Those not fortunate enough to get an application. So the scam artists are standing outside Cobo Hall charging $20 for a fake application. "Genuine applications are either yell or white with a blue box located at the bottom of the form, copies of the applications are considered invalid and will not be accepted." What a nightmare.

This is what you get with socialism. Nobody gets anything -- and those who get whatever, don't get very much, period. Because socialism kills the engine of production. And we're witnessing it happen right before our very eyes in our own nation. These are dark days, folks. I just cringe.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: If you missed the first hour -- here, grab sound bite number one. The best way to tell you what you missed, Cobo Hall, Detroit, $15 million of stimulus money being given out to help people deal with near homelessness or pay their utilities or mortgage. Sixty-five thousand people showed up, 3,500 people will get applications. There are scam artists outside Cobo Hall selling for 20 bucks fake applications, proving that there still is entrepreneurism in Detroit, which is a positive. Here's the sound bite, 'cause I just found a news story just now, "I want help," I have a suggestion for people who don't get Obama money in Detroit to pick up a little extra cash. But here's the sound bite, this is Obama's America, this is two citizens, model citizens, in Obama's America.

ROGULSKI: Why are you here?

WOMAN #1: To get some money.

ROGULSKI: What kind of money?

WOMAN #1: Obama money.

ROGULSKI: Where's it coming from?

WOMAN #1: Obama.

ROGULSKI: And where did Obama get it?

WOMAN #1: I don't know, his stash. I don't know. (laughter) I don't know where he got it from, but he givin' it to us, to help us.

WOMAN #2: And we love him.

WOMAN #1: We love him. That's why we voted for him!

WOMEN: (chanting) Obama! Obama! Obama! (laughing)

RUSH: There you have it, model citizens in Obama's America. "I don't know, it's coming from Obama's stash. He loves us!" That's exactly what Obama wants these people to think. And this is what socialism gets you. If these people think it's bad now trying to get money, wait until Obama fully enacts everything in his plan.
