RUSH: Patricia in Canton, Ohio, as we head back to the phones, the home of the National Football League Hall of Fame. Great to have you on the program. Hi.
CALLER: Hi. Thank you, and it's exciting to talk to you. Hey, I got two points. The first thing is, I want to tell you, I love the tea. Blueberry is my favorite.
RUSH: Thank you. You know, mine, too. I unscrew the bottle cap and the aroma, it smells like blueberry muffin batter to me. I just love it.
CALLER: I put it in the freezer and let it chill, gets almost frozen, it's like a slushy.
CALLER: It's marvelous. And adding the contest is just an extra perk, it's really fun. My second point is, the other day you had a couple people call in and talk about being on disability. Well, I worked at the welfare department for 30 years, and one of the things I believe you mentioned was you didn't know whether these people planned on being on welfare or they planned on being on disability, but I have to tell you a little story.
CALLER: I went from receptionist typing to caseworker to legal secretary, and I had kids come in when I'd be interviewing their parents and ask me if when they grew up would I be their caseworker. I had 'em literally --
RUSH: How long ago? How long was this?
CALLER: Well, I've been out ten years. I would say probably 20 years ago.
RUSH: Twenty years ago you had kids of parents --
RUSH: -- coming in saying, "Will you be my caseworker?"
RUSH: How old were these kids?
CALLER: I'm gonna say four or five.
RUSH: Oh, jeez.
CALLER: Yeah, four or five. "Would you be my case worker when I grow up?" No, I'm not kidding you.
RUSH: So did that tell you was going on at home? That the parents were singing the praises of the caseworkers? I mean, they're four or five years old; what do they know? They have to be told.
CALLER: Oh, yeah, they're told this. My husband and I fostered for ten years. And everyone that came out of the home came out of a home that was on some kind of government assistance, and usually 90% of them was on everything government assistance. We had 45 kids through our house, every one of them, welfare. And that's what they were taught. Every one of the kids I had in my home had watched the movie Chucky by time they were four years old.
RUSH: Okay, you gotta tell me. I haven't seen Chucky. I don't know what Chucky is.
CALLER: Chucky's a little doll that carries a knife and goes around and kills its victims.
RUSH: Oh, the guy that looks like Jon Gruden, the coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Okay, yeah, that guy.
CALLER: So their programmed, they know what's going on. They know when their mom gets food stamps. Back then it was food stamp paper. They didn't get loaded onto a card back then.
RUSH: I don't want to make too big a deal of this, but put in context with everything else going on, the fact that four and five years old were asking you if you were gonna be their caseworker.
RUSH: That was a way of life.
RUSH: You go to the welfare office and then after that you go to the grocery store.
CALLER: Grocery store. You go and get a car, you could get a car, you could get your medical, you could get a bus pass, you got free trips on the bus. Oh, another thing I want to tell you, you know how they're getting those navigators out for the Obamacare?
RUSH: Wait a minute. Slow down. I'm not gonna take away your time. People may not know what this is. I need to tell 'em, 60 some odd thousand people, folks, have been hired at up to 50 dollars an hour to fan out across the country ostensibly to help people navigate their way through the application for Obamacare at a state exchange. It's an army of Obamaites that are supposedly to help people figure it all out. What it is is a massive voter registration drive for the Democrat Party. Okay. Now, go ahead.
CALLER: Well, in the applications when these people come in and apply and there's an application they have to fill out, in that application is a page dedicated to you signing up to vote and registering you, right there and then, when you sign up for your welfare.
RUSH: There you have it. It's exactly right. In the so-called form to fill out and learn how to apply for Obamacare is the application page dedicated to you signing up to vote and registering you right there as a Democrat.
CALLER: This has been taking place for a long time. It's in the welfare papers.
RUSH: Doesn't surprise me a bit. In a way, folks, this is who these people are. I mean, that's their life. They are devoted to owning and operating the government from beginning to end, cradle to grave, your life and theirs.
CALLER: Now, I have to clarify. I don't know about the navigator page. I'm telling about the page in the welfare section.
RUSH: Right. Right.
RUSH: Well, I don't know, either, that the navigators are gonna be registering people to vote. I'm guessing and I'm pretty sure I'm right based on what you just said.
RUSH: If a bunch of Democrats are fanning out across the country with a form, it's not just to help people navigate the labyrinth of Obamacare. I guarantee you there's gonna be voter registration in there. That's just the way they operate. Well, look, Patricia, I'm glad you called. Do you go to the Hall of Fame game every August?
CALLER: I go to the Hall of Fame parade, but I have never been inside the Hall of Fame itself.
RUSH: Yeah, you know what, it's like people who live in New York have never been to the theater, 'cause you can go every day, so you don't go at all.
RUSH: People live in Washington never been to the Lincoln Memorial 'cause they can go every day, so they'll do it next week. They never get around to it.
