RUSH: "Bureaucracies in the [regime] have thus far published approximately 11,588,500 words of final Obamacare regulations, while there are only 381,517 words in the Obamacare law itself," and that's 2,200 pages. There are 11.5 million words of regulations in addition to the 380,000 words of Obamacare. "That means unelected federal officials have now written 30 words of regulations for each word in the law," which leads me to another point. Back to Thiessen's piece.
He claims Obamacare is imploding. If, when, now, whenever that happens, these bureaucrats are just gonna get into further gear. They're not gonna sit around and just idly let their precious little baby be eliminated. This is gonna be a constant struggle. But look at this: 381,000 words in the whole law; 11.5 million brand-new words of regulations, written by unelected people.
RUSH: "The American Indian leader spearheading the campaign to change the name of the Washington Redskins is not a legitimate member of the tribe he leads, according to a New York State Assemblywoman, but rather an Obama crony who is raking in casino money and paying back only small stipends to his tribe members. Oneida Nation Representative Ray Halbritter, who is also the CEO of Oneida Nation Enterprises, is not recognized in his position by the Grand Council of Chiefs governing the Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy.
"Halbritter is not a legitimate member of the Oneida tribe," according to Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney. The guy is a fraud. He's an Obama crony. Was there ever any doubt that Obama's behind this? Not in my mind.
RUSH: Phil Mushnick... Oh, I don't have time to go into this today, but in the New York Post he wrote a piece on Sunday about Adrian Peterson, whose son was killed. Mushnick said he's constantly excoriating the media for errors, transgressions, lapses, malpractice, whatever.
He wrote a piece saying, you know, just 'cause Peterson lost his kid doesn't mean he's a great person. He started documenting some of the behavioral and other things that Peterson has done, and he has become enemy number one throughout the sportswriter community. I mean, the hate for Phil Mushnick is just all over. "He's got no right! He had no right to call Peterson's mother, the kid's mother the 'baby mama,'" and so forth.
I don't have time to get into it in detail right now. Yeah, yeah, I've got it here in the Stack. I promise to get into it tomorrow. Look, Mushnick is a throwback. Mushnick is doing everything he can do to restore standards, cultural standards. This is not a standalone piece. This is sort of common to what kind of thing Mushnick writes. He's constantly ripping Jay-Z. He rips radio and TV announcers for incompetence, cultural rot. He rips teams for ripping people off in the ways they do.
He's just a throwback, and some of these criticisms are, "Look, Mushnick is too old to be writing this stuff! He's just too old. The times have passed him by," and it could be said that Mushnick's in an era of America long gone. It's a interesting piece, and the criticism I've seen is more interesting. The criticism will blow your mind. "How dare you? What right do you have to say anything about Peterson? Don't you have any sensitivity? At a time like this, we must all come together," and so forth and so on. I'll try to remember, Snerdley. I'll put a reminder on my phone and remind myself.
I set aside the Phil Mushnick column from Sunday's New York Post. I read it on Sunday, and I didn't mention it on yesterday's program because... I just don't know what I talked about yesterday. Frankly, folks, I don't remember. But I put it aside, and I'll share it with you, and some of the reaction to it. They're really illustrative things.
