Cable Goes Out in the Middle of Breaking Bad, and Connecticut Residents Call 911
RUSH: It wasn't long ago, Port St. Lucie, Florida, right up the road, a woman walked into a McDonald's, asked for some Chicken McNuggets and was told that they were out. So the woman did what occurred to her as the first thing to do, she called 911 and wanted to speak to Obama, to fix the problem of no McNuggets. No Chicken McNuggets, call 911. We may have a new contender for whatever category this fits into.
Several residents of Fairfield and New Haven, Connecticut -- now, New Haven is where Yale is. Fairfield is where I go every July to play in the member-guest golf tournament at the country club of Fairfield, so I have been to this place. I have seen it with my eyes, both eyes. Several residents of Fairfield and New Haven, Connecticut, called 911 over the weekend when their cable and Internet went out in the middle of Breaking Bad. They didn't call the cable company. They didn't call their Internet provider. They called 911.
This is happening with greater frequency. What does it indicate? It indicates something. It's the most direct route to central authority they know. 911 is the fastest way to get to the government. It's faster than going to the building. It's faster than trying to find a phone number. You just call 911 and you think you're getting hold of government.
So people's cable TV goes out in New Haven, Connecticut, where Yale is, you can't get Chicken McNuggets in Port St. Lucie, and you call the government! Is it any wonder the Millennials are in a fog of aimlessness?
Three Members of Undefeated '72 Miami Dolphins Snub Obama
RUSH: Oh, there's Obama, by the way, welcoming the 1972 Miami Dolphins to the White House. They never went when they won the Super Bowl. The only undefeated team in the NFL. Three Dolphins did not go. Three members of that team did not go because they disagree with Obama's policies.
One of them is Manny Fernandez, who was, I think, offensive tackle. Bob Kuechenberg, offensive guard, didn't go, and I forget who the third one is, but they all three said that they just didn't feel comfortable going with the occupant of the White House being so far away from them on policy. That's kind of an amazing thing. It was Jim Langer who was the other Miami Dolphin. He said, "I don't want to be in a room with those people and pretend I'm having a good time. I can't do that. If that (angers) people, so be it." Jim Langer, the third player of the Dolphins who did not make the trip to the White House today. So that means there's Larry Csonka there, I see Mercury Morris, Bob Griese. Nick Buoniconti has to be there somewhere, 'cause he's not one of the three that pulled out. Anyway, no big deal. Just wanted to mention it.
