RUSH: Jerry in Long Beach, I'm glad you waited, sir, welcome to the program.
CALLER: Uh, Rush, I'm a proud member of the longshoremen's union.
RUSH: Yes, sir.
CALLER: I don't appreciate you attacking our union, try to make this part of this debate. Are you telling us that Republicans don't care about our jobs? Are you telling us that Republicans want to break our union?
CALLER: Is that what this deal was about?
RUSH: No! No.
CALLER: Or is this about -- Or is this about President --
RUSH: There you go again! There you go stereotyping! There you go stereotyping.
CALLER: Is he afraid he's not going to get his commission?
RUSH: I'm telling you that from everything I know, nothing's going to change. I have said this for the past two days.
CALLER: So why are you attacking my union?
RUSH: I'm not "attacking your union"! I'm simply pointing out who your union donates to and explaining why Schumer and Hillary and these other Democrats are speaking out in opposition to the deal. While they're telling us it's about national security, it's not, they're telling it because they're trying to loyal to you. You're the ones that --
CALLER: What you're not saying is that this is a violation of the Trading with Enemies Act. You couple this with the violation of the Espionage Act, a violation of the Foreign Intelligence --
RUSH: It's none of that.
CALLER: -- Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, you've got this president committing three felonies, sir!
RUSH: It's none of that!
CALLER: He's a criminal.
CALLER: And what you're doing is criminal -- and don't you attack my union!
RUSH: I didn't attack your union, but I'm about to start --
CALLER: Well, let's get it on, buddy.

Unions, like all other forms of organized criminal gangs, should be illegal.
There's nothing like good old rational debate on an issue. I wonder when we are going to see it on this one...
PS- did anyone ever notice who the most rabid, vicious speakers were at recent International ANSWER (communist) rallies? None other than the bigwigs of the ILA!
I heard that call and I think Rush deserved it. Did or did he not say that one of the reasons the Dems were coming out against it was to help the Unions (and then, I believe, he made a joke about the Unions). The guy was pretty harsh, but he was mad. It made for some great talk radio!!! I like it better when people get mad at Rush than say DITTO, DITTO, DITTO! It's funny, I've spoken to Rush three times, and twice it was because I disagreed with him.
Hilarious! Jumped-up little union thug must have forgotten what century it was!
Since I cannot access that -- and I missed the end of that call -- how did the guy threaten Rush?
I heard this yesterday and I did not feel the man threatened Rush...but if Rush felt that way I cannot argue the point.
However, the caller was a moron and a jerk, one angry liberal.
Rush is right about the Long Shoreman Unions - Did you ever look at their sight and the AFL-CIO?? - It has plenty of Anti-Bush and Pro-Kerry rhetoric on it!
If you have asked to be added to this list, and havent been receiving the pings, please let me know. Ive had a problem with my file synchronization between my home and work computer, and apparently have lost some names on the list. I think I have the problem fixed, and will gladly re-add your name.
"Unions, like all other forms of organized criminal gangs, should be illegal."
That's so well thought out. I'm glad to see there is no knee jerk involved. Now you can go back to your crayolas.
What some people will do for a base wage of $95,000 a year.
Thanks for the poing.
The transit union here in NYC proved that last December. Even though it is illegal for them to strike, they did so anyway making everyones life a living hell for 3 days. And what did it accomplish? Absolutely nothing. The union accepted a deal and then they voted it down after going back to work.
