RUSH: We have Lena on the phone from Madison, Wisconsin, 17 years old. Am I pronouncing your name right, Lena? Is that it?
CALLER: Yes, you are.
RUSH: Thank you very much. Great to have you here.
CALLER: Yes. I’m so excited. I was at the capitol all week this week for a government leadership class, and as we were walking around the capitol one of the main signs that the union it printed out said, ‘Care about our educators the way they care about your children,’ and I found that incredibly ironic, since what they were essentially saying with all their other signs is — other than your student will feel the brunt of this bill — was that they weren’t going to teach as well if they had to pay a minuscule amount of their pensions and their insurance costs. And I just found that ironic that they said that they cared about them so much that they wouldn’t teach them as well if they didn’t get as much money. I found that incredibly ironic. Also another thing I was saddened by was that one of the nights that they stayed overnight, they had doughnuts the next day, and they had such disrespect for our state constitution that they put their doughnuts and coffee on top of it. I was just so saddened by that, amazed that there they were saying that they were exercising their rights, but they didn’t want their —
RUSH: So they actually…? I want to go back to the first part of your comment. They have signs that say, ‘Be as respectful of us as we are…’?
CALLER: ‘Care about our educators the way they care about your children.’
RUSH: Well, but they don’t care about the students! It’s obvious! They’re lying about calling in sick.
RUSH: They’re not sick. They’re leaving you up for grabs, and you’re not in school.
CALLER: I’m actually homeschooled, so I was just amazed. I’m like, ‘Really? You don’t even care about them enough to give them your same work ethic even if you’re not getting as much money?’
RUSH: Wow, that’s amazing. This is encouraging. You’re 17, did you say?
CALLER: I am, yes.
RUSH: You got teachers running around here. If they cared, if the teachers unions cared about the kids, their scholastic scores wouldn’t be in the toilet. Your scholastic scores are pretty high, I’ll bet.
RUSH: You’re doing well in your grades, right?
CALLER: I am.
RUSH: This is interesting. Well, look, I’m glad that you called. This is just wonderful to hear from you. She’s 17 years old and she mailed it.
CALLER: (giggles) (garbled)
RUSH: Lena, you know, you’re able to spot the irony, the hypocrisy right in front of you. Congratulations. I appreciate the time you’ve taken to call here. That’s why when people say, ‘What can we do to involve the yutes,’ get ’em to tune in to this program. Homeschool them; get ’em to tune in to this program. Just like in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood wants Scott Walker to tear up the Wisconsin Constitution and write a new one. That’s exactly what’s happening here.
