RUSH: Justin in Casper, Wyoming, great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello, sir.

CALLER: Hi, Rush. Yeah, earlier I heard you criticizing the people in Greece for taking the welfare money, contributing to the problem. I couldn’t agree more. I feel like I could be the Official Welfare Recipient Criticizer. I’ve got a disability. I’ve had it, I guess, since I was 18. I crushed my back. I’ve got rods holding me together, bolts and steel, and I go to work every day and I’ve done it since I was 18. Now I’m raising a family, got three kids, but where I live I feel like sometimes I’m surrounded by people on welfare, and of all the people there I think I’m probably the only one who is a legitimate disability that could actually be on welfare but I’m paying their way, you know? So if I want to criticize them I feel like I’ve got ample reason to do that.

RUSH: Well, you do have standing, you do have standing to criticize just like Mr. Snerdley is our Official Obama Criticizer. When we really need to go to the mattresses here —

CALLER: (laughing)

RUSH: — we bring him out.

CALLER: And, I’ll tell you what: Obama has had two years to do something that on my level with my family I could say I’m better off, but I feel like my kids are more at risk in a more dangerous world than we were two years ago, and my employer, they’re having problems with insurance —

RUSH: Yeah, I know.

CALLER: — now because of the health care bill. And any help I’ve got since I was hurt at 18 years old has come from the private sector. None of it was government.

RUSH: Yeah.

CALLER: You know?

RUSH: I know.

CALLER: Apple develops the iPad so I learned to write software for the iPad.

RUSH: Well, that’s great. I love this. I wish I had gotten hold of you earlier. You’d be a great inspirational story. Snerdley thought you weren’t that important and put you here at the end of the line. It’s his fault. Maybe we’ll be able to talk to you again, but this is fabulous news.
