RUSH: There is a Barbara shop in Greeley, Colorado. There's a sign on the front of the Barbara shop: "Please do not come in if you smell like marijuana. There are families with kids who don’t want to smell it. This is a business, not your house. Thank you. If you don’t like it, please go somewhere else."
"Hugo Corral is the 23-year-old owner of Hugo’s Barber Shop. On Monday afternoon Corral told TheBlaze that he posted the sign in the window a few weeks ago and was almost immediately hit with complaints as well as salutes. And now the story has become national news. 'The whole nation has an opinion on it. Half of them hate it and the other half love it,' he said."
Well, wait a minute, now. Wait a minute, uh, bakers and party planners and others, if homosexuals walk in they have to do business with 'em, but a guy can put a sign up that he refuses to cut people's hair who smell like pot? Will there be an effort made to force Hugo Corral to cut everybody's hair regardless? Will they now say he's discriminatory against pot-smelling people? What do you bet there isn't anything like that.
RUSH: Somebody sent me an e-mail with a stat in it.
It was a list of cities run by Democrats that are all in the top three of crime, poverty, every negative metric you can think of. These Democrat cities are at the top of the list. Here it is. I just happened to find it. "The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) tracks crime statistics based on property and violent crimes. For 2013, the numbers are in for the ten most violent cities in America," and all 10 are run by Democrats.
Camden, New Jersey; Flint, Michigan; Detroit; Oakland, California; St. Louis; Cleveland; Gary, Indiana; Newark; Bridgeport, Connecticut; Birmingham, Alabama. The question I got was: "Why do Democrats ever win an election? Wherever they run the show, everything is falling apart. Everything is falling apart. Everybody is in misery. How do they keep winning elections?"
RUSH: Senator Leahy, Senator Pat "Leaky" Leahy, also known as Senator Depends, has now joined Senator Feinstein in claiming that the CIA's computer searches may have violated the Constitution's separation of powers. So it's fascinating. First Di Fi and now Senator Depends all bent outta shape that the CIA may have been stealing data, or at least monitoring what was on Senate and congressional websites. (imitating Depends) "That's a Fourth Amendment violation. That's a separation of powers violation. How can you do that?" No concern whatsoever when it's you. And I'm not equating the CIA, but what they're upset about is separation of powers.
Now, this gets to another point, by the way. Why do they not worry about the separation of powers when Obama is bypassing them, or when he rewrites laws, or when he does all kinds of executive orders. And when he goes before them and says, "I've got a phone, I've got a pen, and if you're not gonna do it, I'm gonna do it." They don't worry about separation of powers at all in that instance. But now let the CIA start listening in, oh, no, we can't have that. These hypocrites, they're just all over the place.
