RUSH: Cordova, Tennessee. Joe, thank you, sir. It’s nice to have you on the EIB Network.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush, and good morning from sunny Timberlake Drive. The observation I have — and it might be worthy of your comment — is when they were talking about this Porkulus bill and ‘shovel-ready projects.’ well, the largest shovel-ready project in the country is the new fence trying to protect our borders between Mexico and the United States.
RUSH: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. That’s off the table now.
CALLER: Well, of course it is.
CALLER: But it should be something they should work on.
RUSH: Yeah. Obama doesn’t believe in that.
CALLER: Well, of course not. But I think it’s… (laughing) You know, what’s interesting is if you go 800 miles north, there is going to be a $8 billion apparently fast-rail connection between Los Angeles, which is Assistant President Pelosi’s state; to Las Vegas; which is Assistant President Reid’s state, which I think is very interesting.
RUSH: It’s not just Los Angeles. The train is from Disneyland —
CALLER: Oh, that’s right. It is Disneyland.
RUSH: — to Las Vegas.
RUSH: But, see, this is another thing out there, Joe. The environmental impact study on this train is going to take five years before they even get the first shovel to break ground, the environmental impact study. Yeah, it is, Disneyland to Las Vegas.
CALLER: All right.
RUSH: It’s from Orange County. Well, the only rich people left out there are Bel Air, Beverly Hills, and Orange County. They’re the only people can be able to afford to go to Las Vegas.
CALLER: (laughs) But I think it’s really interesting they’re not spending a penny for the protection of our border.
RUSH: Well, now, Joe, why would you think they would?
CALLER: Well, they should, but they are Democrats. They’re afraid to lose the Latino vote, I guess.
RUSH: Yeah. That’s a pretty good guess, Joe. (laughing)
RUSH: Just like the infrastructure for national health care is in place in the Porkulus bill, it isn’t going to be long before we go back to amnesty and it isn’t going to be long before we start doing a number of… I’ll bet you by this summer, Obama comes back for another stimulus package, after they do TARP 2 sometime in March. Mark my words. That’s the way this is going to happen. Remember, FDR didn’t spend enough soon enough.
