Global Warming
Myth #1

Guenter Oerlicker surveys the damage to utility poles in front of his
house on Gunnville Rd. after a major snowstorm in Clarence, N.Y.,
a suburb of Buffalo, Friday, Oct. 13, 2006. A rare early October snow -
storm left parts of western New York blanketed with 2 feet of snow
Friday morning, prompting widespread blackouts, closing schools and
halting traffic...

CALLER: Wow. Well, you know, my question to the screener was, you know, we hear all the time that we as Americans consume 80% of the world's natural resources. So my question is: Well, how much wealth do we generate in the world? You know, what's the figure on that?

RUSH: Well, it's profound. This is an argument, by the way, Mike -- and he's talking about a story, we did it earlier this week, that 300 million Americans will happen soon. We're going to reach the 300 million mark in population. Nobody knows quite exactly when. All we know is where it'll happen and that is at the southern border, probably in California or Mexico or maybe Texas. That's where we'll reach 300 million people, and this story went on to say, (doing lib impression) "This is just not fair. America can't sustain this on its own. It has to steal and rob and plunder resources from around the world, ensuring that the Third World forever stays poor, and America is just 5% of the world's population and uses 25% of the world's resources. That's why they're so responsible for global warming and destruction of the planet," and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
I've been hearing this for 20 years. I don't know if it was Paul Ehrlich and his book The Population Bomb in the seventies that got this line of thinking started, but if not it was right around then, and just with simple observation, it is absurd. We feed the planet, we repair the planet, we have liberated over a billion oppressed people. We rebuilt Europe after World War II, after it was destroyed by a European, a German by the name of Adolf Hitler. We are single-handedly responsible for helping people after the tsunami.

Earthquakes and disasters around the world. We are first on the scene. We have, with our space program, starting in the sixties -- people forget this, but the inventions that were necessary to make space flight possible found their way into daily life once the products and systems became affordable, and the lifestyle, the standard of living for the world has improved dramatically as a result. You can just take a look at what happened in the twentieth century alone. My grandfather was born in the 1890s, and in the 1890s they barely had electricity.

There was hardly any phones. I mean, the phones were just weird. Everybody got around on horse and buggy or train. In the 104 years that my grandfather lived, he saw the most incredible growth. He saw the most technical human progress. He saw life expectancy expand, all because of the freedom to produce in this country, the freedom to invent, entrepreneurial freedom, scientific freedom, you name it. He saw the invention of the airplane, the invention of the automobile. He saw the practical, common use for everybody of the telephone. He saw space flight.


RUSH: Now let's look at this resources business from another angle, ladies and gentlemen. Sad-sack, laden-with-guilt, miserably unhappy useful idiot liberals love to run around and say, "We're destroying the planet! We are so selfish, Mr. Limbaugh. We are so greedy." The new castrati, ladies and gentlemen, victims of the feminized culture in western societies. "Mr. Limbaugh, we are so greedy because we just have no concern for others. It's all about us, ourselves, so we steal all the resources from the rest of the world. We steal oranges and we steal fruit. We even steal coffee from Brazil. We steal everything. It's horrible."

Right. Okay. Now, according to these liberals, one of the most damaging resources out there, of course, created by God-d is oil. I mean, that stuff, rotten, that stuff. That's a killer. It's deadly. It's right up there with tobacco. All right, so we are blamed for stealing the resources of the world. Well, being only 5% of the world's population and using 25%. Let's just apply that in oil. We do import over half of our oil. We don't steal it, we pay for it. The people who sell it love to sell it. Look at who they are, by the way. You want to talk about the big trick that God's played on the good guys, all the bad guys in the world have the oil. What's God thinking?

Hugo Chavez, the Middle East sheiks. Let's talk about them for a second. OPEC. Oh, they love selling oil for as high a price per barrel as they can, and we buy it because we need it, we are a growing, expanding economy. Oil is the fuel of the engine of capitalism and freedom and democracy. We pay them for it. Now, is it our fault that they use the money to build themselves three million square foot palaces, go out and buy fleets of 747s, fly off to the Bahamas or wherever to pretend that they're not Muslims, and don't do diddly-squat for their own people? Is it our fault? We are spreading the wealth, gang. We are enabling some of these dirt-poor, otherwise Third World countries to have roaringly wealthy societies themselves. But how come it doesn't happen? Is that our fault?
Is it our fault that your average Middle Easterner lives a Third World life from the Seventh Century? It's not that we're stealing anything. We're using it. If we weren't buying it, somebody would, the ChiComs or whoever else. I think people have this distorted view, and it is rooted in guilt, a hundred percent rooted in guilt over our affluence. I was talking about the things my grandfather saw as a human from the time he was born 'til he died. The advancements in standards of living, lifestyles, the human condition, were incomprehensible. Do you realize the advances that we in America, and thus shared with the world, made in the Twentieth Century alone outpaced the previous thousand years?

You could take all the human advancement, from phones, electricity, I'm just talking the basics here. Phones, electricity, air travel, jet travel then, supersonic travel for a while, space flight, space exploration, satellites, do you know what they enable you to do in your ordinary everyday life? You may not even know. But I'm telling you, the thousand years previous saw a smidgen of that kind of advancement in the human condition. Medicine, health. It's incomparable what happened -- and where did it start? Right here: the United States of America. Now, I realize some of the western European cultures had great contributions, and I'm not diminishing them. Art, dining, cooking, architecture. Really, I'm not putting this all down, but they still haven't caught up with basic plumbing.

I hate to say it. You ever try to use one of their phone systems over there, it's still a pain -- you're better off taking a world cell phone, a GSM cell phone than trying to use a hotel phone over there in Europe. And try getting in a car over there that's larger than a lawn mower. I'm sorry, folks. "But, Rush! But, Rush! Petrol over there costs so much and the streets are so narrow." That's not our problem. Just because we choose to build streets that are wider than a little Peugot is not our fault. I have no patience for these people who want to whine and moan about prosperity and claim it's a sin or that we are somehow denying others. The world is not a zero-sum game. No economic model is a zero-sum game. The left believes that in the economic pie, if somebody takes a piece out of it, that the pie has thus gotten smaller.

Likewise, they believe if somebody gets fired, a job is lost. When taxes are cut, they think revenue depletes. They do not understand that this is not a zero-sum game, and you can look at the federal budget every year, and you can look at the gross domestic product of the country every year and understand that there are people fired every year and people taking big, big chunks out of the pie. I mean, the Forbes 400 now is all billionaires, and yet the GDP of the country keeps going, the middle class keeps expanding. Wealth keeps expanding. How is this possible if life is a zero-sum game? This is why you cannot listen to the tripe and the gloom and doom and the apocalyptic predictions and the overall just flat out miserable nature of liberal Democrats. It will destroy you, it will depress you, make you wonder why you're getting up in the morning, what's the point? I mean, they're already asking themselves that, and don't join them.

At the Alliance for Innovative Manufacturing at the Stanford University
Web site (whew!), you can watch things being built. All kinds of
things--like cars, candies and clothes. The choice is yours.

You can take the virtual tour and watched a Boeing 777 being built from
scratch. It took seven minutes--on film, anyways. Included was a neat
clip of some Rosie the Riveters during wartime.

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to enjoy How Everyday Things
Are Made. Anyone will like watching raw stuff become finished stuff
through manufacturing.

Verse of the Day

* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
