Fascinating Population Density Graphs 

RUSH: I saw something the other day that was stunning.  It was a fascinating demographic site, and they had different graphic representations.  If you put the population of the world into a city with the density of Houston, meaning that many people per square mile, the population of the world at the density of the population of Houston, Texas, would comprise two-thirds of the continental United States.  You could put the population of the world, real estate wise, you could put the population of the world at Houston, Texas, density in two-thirds of the United States.  
If you are observant when you fly, the thing that you cannot escape as you look out the window of the airplane is how empty it is down there.  Now, I know this says nothing about infrastructure, support systems, and all that, but the point is, we could put the population of the planet right in this country and only use two-thirds of it.  Now, it would be as crowded as Houston is, but we could do it.  We are nowhere near being unable to feed the planet.  It's absurd what these people say. 
I expose myself to this insanity and stupidity, these emotional pleas every day.  It just drives me bonkers that people fall for this stupidity. 

Great Quote from Chuck Noll on Media

RUSH: You people who don't like hearing about football and send me profane e-mails at RushLimbaugh.com are not gonna like this, but a little football news here.  Not actually football news.  I came across a fascinating, funny quote from the late Steelers coach, Chuck Noll, about the media. 

It's actually quite funny.  It's actually quite appropriate.  He said, "You should treat the media the way they grow mushrooms:  Keep them in the dark and feed them plenty of manure." H.R. said when I told him that during the break, "He didn't say "'manure,' though, right?"  No, Chuck Noll would have said "manure."  Chuck Noll did not engage in that kind of profanity.  

Kerry Wants 10% of Oceans Off Limits

RUSH: "John Kerry Wants 10% of World's Oceans Off-Limits to Human Activity -- With all that's happening in the world, Secretary of State John Kerry spent part of Monday addressing 'the threats facing the ocean.'" He said, "Today less than 2 percent of our ocean is considered a marine-protected area where there are some restrictions on human activity in order to prevent contaminating the ecosystem."

This is this oceans conference at the State Department. They had Leo DiCaprio there speaking up for the oceans.  'Cause, you know, the oceans are voiceless.  Do you know DiCaprio gave $7 million to this thing, to save the oceans, whatever, from his foundation.  Seven million.  When I hear something like that it makes me want to go into investment scams and target Hollywood actors.  Seven million dollars for this.  Ted Danson, right when this program started:  10 years to save the oceans.  If we don't, we're all dead.  Al Gore, much the same thing.  I don't know how these people continue to get away with this.  They should have been humiliated and slinked away with their tails between their legs because they've been dead wrong about all this. 

"Kerry said most people underestimate the 'enormous damage' that humans inflict on the oceans every day." I don't.  I remember what Reverend Wright said.  Cruise ships throw away more food, garbage in the oceans than they have to eat in Haiti.  "When people order seafood from a restaurant, most of the time they don't realize that a third of the world's fish stocks are over-exploited, too much money chasing too few fish. And nearly all the rest are being fished at or near their absolute maximum sustainable level on a planet that has six billion people today and will rise to nine (billion) over the next 30, 40, 50 years."

I saw something the other day that was stunning.  It was a fascinating demographic site, and they had different graphic representations.  If you put the population of the world into a city with the density of Houston, meaning that many people per square mile, the population of the world at the density of the population of Houston, Texas, would comprise two-thirds of the continental United States.  You could put the population of the world, real estate wise, you could put the population of the world at Houston, Texas, density in two-thirds of the United States. 

If you are observant when you fly, the thing that you cannot escape as you look out the window of the airplane is how empty it is down there.  Now, I know this says nothing about infrastructure, support systems, and all that, but the point is, we could put the population of the planet right in this country and only use two-thirds of it.  Now, it would be as crowded as Houston is, but we could do it.  We are nowhere near being unable to feed the planet.  It's absurd what these people say.

I expose myself to this insanity and stupidity, these emotional pleas every day.  It just drives me bonkers that people fall for this stupidity. "Underestimate the enormous damage that humans inflict on the oceans every day."  For crying out loud, does he not know that oil spills into the ocean every day from fissures on the ocean floor.  It's natural, and oil is the biggest poison in the world to these people.  And the oil never reaches the surface of the ocean.  It doesn't matter whether it's natural oil or Exxon oil, it's still oil.  It's unrefined oil.  It's dirty oil.  It's heavy oil, sweet, crude, whatever.  But the ocean just eats it up.  It never reaches the surface. 

You remember the BP oil spill?  Do you remember one of the most noteworthy things about it?  Do you?  They couldn't find the oil.  They thought it was gonna eat up, what, a third of the Gulf.  They couldn't find it.  Remember those stories, they couldn't find it.  They showed us the pictures of the oil that was spewing out of the platform.  They couldn't find it.  Here again, if you've ever flown to Europe or to Hawaii or to the Far East, and if you've ever looked out the window, have you any idea of the size of the ocean, the depth?  Do you have any idea of the amount of water on this planet and the idea that we treat it as a garbage dump? 

We would have to target the destruction of the ocean, and we would have to work hard.  I don't think even then we could even make a dent in destroying the ocean.  And these people want us to believe that simply living our lives is doing it.  It's more of the same, folks.  You living your life is causing climate change, changing the planet, warming it up. You taking advantage of human progress is destroying the planet, and now you're destroying the ocean.  They just never let up.

Students Demand Mandatory Transgender Class to Right Wrongs of Colonial America

RUSH: The Rush Revere books, our last caller was thanking me for writing the Rush Revere books, and you know the mission behind those books is to counter the multicultural curriculum that kids get in public schools, kindergarten, grade school, elementary, and so on.  It's a great country, and the truth of this country deserves to be taught. 

You talk about rights, everybody has the right, and I think the responsibility, of understanding the truth of the founding of this country, how it happened, who did it, why they did it the way they did it.  It is miraculous.  In human history, it is profound.  It is an exception to the way human beings lived up to that time.  It doesn't need to be embellished. It doesn't need to be exaggerated.  It's a great story.  We all ought to be proud of it.  But there are people in this country who aren't, and they're teaching lies.  And so the Rush Revere series is to counter that.  That is the mission. 

These are not just an exercise for me to engage in, another career opportunity or another money making opportunity.  We've donated tens of thousands of books.  We're doing everything we can. We have an adventures of Rush Revere website, another book in the works.  It is an ongoing series.  And here's another reason why.  One of my new favorite websites is a site called Campus Reform, and it details some of the outrage going on on college campi all across the fruited plain.  And this story:  "Students Demand Mandatory Transgender Class to Right the Wrongs of Colonial America."

Now, folks, this story and stories like it are exactly why writing the Rush Revere books was such a, "Gee, I have to do it" kind of thing.  Students demand mandatory transgender class to write the wrongs of colonial America?  The founding days we discriminated against transgenders and we left them out, and this drivel is being taught.  And, of course, activist groups are organizing and demanding, making it look like students everywhere are demanding this. 

This is an actual headline in the United States of America:  "Students Demand Mandatory Transgender Class to Right the Wrongs of Colonial America."  It's brought to you by a bunch of American kids who've not been taught the history of their country and are otherwise idiots.  It's exactly why I wrote the Rush Revere series, or am writing, I should say.  I mean, you have to really challenge yourself to read this and believe it, because it seems like a spoof. 

"A group calling itself 'Whose Diversity' has created a list of demands which are designed to eradicate 'structural inequality' at the University of Minnesota. Demands include having two faculty of color 'engaging in critical race and ethnic studies' in each department, creation of display celebrating 'histories of activism initiated by marginalized communities.'"

You can see the theme.  Oh, yeah, America might have been founded on freedom, but it discriminated against people of color and transgenders and gays and all of this.  You can read any of the founding documents and you won't find a reference to transgenders. 

"A liberal group at the University of Minnesota (U of M) has ordered the school to admit it is a product of the evil actions of colonial Americans and must fundamentally alter its structure to make it up to marginalized communities. 'We demand an acknowledgement that the university exists as a product of colonialistic processes,' states the official website for the group, which calls itself 'Whose Diversity?' The group has created a list of 'permanent and substantial structural changes' that the school must enact to right these wrongs and has vowed not to stop."

In addition to at least two faculty members of color in every single department, they further demand "hiring more 'medical providers of historically marginalized identities whose work is rooted in social justice' and increasing the number of 'non-white' students to meet very specific proportions. In two years, the university student body should be proportional to three-fourths of the city demographics of non-white groups. (For example, the student body should be 13.5% Black in two years compared to the city demographics of 18% Black residents)."

This is what this group is demanding, and you know the university could cave.  When do they not cave to demands such as this?  "The list also calls for a gender-neutral restroom in every building and a faith-neutral 'meditation and healing' room on every campus. ... In terms of 'restructuring curriculum,' the group orders the school to force every student to take at least one course on 'gender non-conforming issues,' and offer 'substantially more' courses on 'marginalized peoples.'"

(interruption) By definition it would include the stupid.  Yeah.  "In case those courses are not enough to constantly remind students about the plight of 'marginalized communities,' the list also demands that the school erect a display of historical documents and photographs chronicling their activism to be placed in a 'centrally located space' on campus. 

"'There should be transparency about the university and its past dealings with race relations,' the group explains.  It also wants to ban the U of M police department from mentioning race in crime alerts, and stop the construction of luxury apartments near campus because they 'gentrify and displace local communities.' ... The group presented the list of demands to the school on April 30.

"At the time of publication, more than 700 students, faculty, professors and alumni had endorsed it." Seven hundred. (interruption) They found that many? It wasn't hard. Look at the Duke lacrosse case. The whole faculty, look what they endorsed.  There was no evidence that these kids had done what the allegations were, and what, 89% of the faculty weighed in that they ought to be expelled?  (interruption)

What would be my response, if I'm running the University of Minnesota and they come to me with this list of demands? Uh, I'd tell 'em to go pound sand.  You know, "Take your complaints someplace else, but this is not the purpose of this university.  You don't run it. If you don't like the way we do business here, start your own school."  (interruption)  I'd listen to 'em. I'd hear what they want and try not to laugh. 

I'd ask one of them to join me in the bathroom to talk about it further. "If you want a unisex bathroom, let's go."  I don't know.  But that's not what happens.  They're gonna cave.  They had 700 signatures back on April 30th.  "Administrators have said efforts to meet with the group have been unsuccessful."  See, the groups never want to meet, Snerdley.  They don't want to meet.  They never want to meet.  They just want to keep bitching, but they never want to actually meet.  

Jeremiah Wright's Daughter's Chickens Come Home to Roost

RUSH:  Jeremiah Wright's daughter has been convicted of fraud, folks.  It took two hours for the jury to decide last Friday or whenever it was. (impression) "America's chickenssss are coming home to roost."
