RUSH: Let me grab a couple of quick phone calls here, since this is the last day this week I’ll be here. We’ll talk to as many of you as we can. Oh, we got a call from Port St. Lucie. Otis, Port St. Lucie, nice to have you on the program, sir.
CALLER: Hello, Rush.
RUSH: Yes, sir. Hi.
CALLER: Oh what an opportunity for me to thank a man that I consider a godfather to my truth, and that being said, what in the hell are you doing to my equity in Port St. Lucie?
RUSH: What do you mean, what am I doing to your equity? What do you mean?
CALLER: Well, you know, the other day I was feeling really down and, you know, Obama and all this stuff, and me and my wife were getting ready to split up when Barney Frank gives us back some equity and I turn on the radio to feed off of your positivity, and what do I hear, Rio Linda East, Port St. Lucie? This is a beautiful town we got here.
RUSH: Well, yes, it is, but Port St. Lucie is growing, and I think with the attention — you can ask the people in Rio Linda about this — their property values have skyrocketed the last 20 years because of the attention I brought to Rio Linda. You won’t find nearly as many cars on concrete blocks there as you used to. There’s a lot more community pride. I predict that if I continue to focus on Port St. Lucie you won’t have any more sad comical incidents of people going into McDonald’s and calling 911 five times when they’re out of French fries.
RUSH: So your whole beef’s over the fries?
RUSH: No, it’s not a beef, it’s just sad, it’s tolerable — actually it wasn’t French fries, there weren’t enough Chicken McNuggets, she called 911 five times, I mean 911 is there to help people in genuine distress.
CALLER: Yeah, but we don’t tolerate that here. We like our McNuggets and we expect them to be there when we get there. You got us so far underwater, we’re going to sue you for a hundred thousand snorkels now.
RUSH: (laughing) Sue me for a hundred thousand snorkels. There was another incident about Port St. Lucie, I had it in the stack all week and I exercised restraint, and now I can’t remember what it was. It was just a short little story, but it was somewhat similar to the crisis of running out of Chicken McNuggets at McDonald’s. Let me see if I can find it during the break. But if you’re worried about property values in Port St. Lucie, you should not be blaming me. I’m doing everything I can to elevate ’em. Blame the Obama administration for continuing to screw up what’s going on in the housing markets and the lack of value and equity value in homes. We’re trying to do something about that here on the EIB Network. Otis, thanks for the call.
RUSH: Here it is. A couple of Port St. Lucie shoplifters left pictures of themselves behind at a Walmart and they were caught. You don’t do that if you’re a good shoplifter. If you’re at Port St. Lucie, you do.
