Snarky Tech Jockeys Rip Apple Maps App
RUSH:No, really, they tick me off. You know, there's not that much wrong with it. But you read the tech blogs, these snarky little anti-Apple sniveling little jerks out there, they're now... I'm sorry, folks. The program happened to start in the middle of a conversation here, had nothing to do with you. Google Maps made their iPhone app available last night. It's a big controversy. Apple came out with iOS 6, their maps app, everybody started dumping on it, and they've been waiting with bated breath for the Google Maps app so the Google Maps app is back on the iPhone.
All these snarky, sniveling little tech jockeys are writing how wonderful it is and how great it is. And that's fine, it's a pretty good app, but at the same time they're sitting there ripping Apple's maps app as though it's the worst thing that's ever come down the tech pike and that's not true. I've had no problem with anything. I actually like it. I actually prefer it to the Google maps app, which is also good. Competition's great. It's gonna make everybody great. But my gosh, I don't know why it just ticks me off. I think it's just liberals in the media, wherever I find 'em, I don't care if it's in the sports page. I don't care if it's in the tech pages. I don't care if it's in the blogs, it just ticks me off. A bunch of idiots.
I don't know; I get to the point I'm so sick and tired of being surrounded by morons. I'm sick and tired of being governed and dominated by low-information, know-nothing idiots, and no matter where you go you find 'em. And you find 'em in places where you would expect to find people who've reached the pinnacle of their profession and instead what you find are the typical idiots, and they're everywhere. I'm surrounded by these people. I don't know, some days it just ticks me off.
Google Shelters Money from Obama
RUSH: The Google app, I tell you what, the Google Maps app, I tried to find out where they're hiding their $2 billion. You know, Google, $10 billion of income that they're sheltering two billion of, and they're not paying it to Obama. Google is doing everything they can to avoid paying taxes on $10 billion of income. So I said, "Well, I'm gonna search the Google Maps app, see if I can find out where they're hiding it." It took me to the Eiffel Tower. And these tech jockeys are still out there writing how wonderful and how great it is.
I mean, look, I put in an address in the Google Maps app, and it took me to someplace in Singapore, which is what everybody's complaining the Apple Maps app does. I don't know. I'm sorry, folks. I know a lot of you people don't care about this tech stuff. I happen to love it. But it's not that. It's being surrounded no matter where you go, and it's not just that they're liberals. It's this condescending, arrogant snarkiness. It's bad manners that bugs me. There's nothing more irritating than arrogant condescension from people who are 180 degrees out of phase, who do not know what they're talking about. It's one thing if a genius is arrogant and condescending and is right, but these people who think they're geniuses and don't know what the hell they're talking about, you couple that with arrogance condescension, and to me, it's just unsufferable. So I'm venting a little bit.
Seven Countries Where Atheists are Executed
RUSH: In a lighter mode, ladies and gentlemen, the Washington Post has posted a map of the seven countries where the state can execute you for being an atheist. Oddly enough, they're all Muslim countries. I just wanted to try to lighten the mood here a little bit. It got very serious with my truthful dissertation on what Obama's really after here. So just to light it up a little bit, the Washington Post lists the seven countries where the state can execute you for being atheist. They're all Muslim countries. They're Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Afghanistan, Sudan, the west African state of Mauritania, and the Maldives, an island nation in the Indian Ocean. You can't be an atheist there or you get shot, which, I don't know... (interruption) They need an Arab Spring. Exactly right.
