    I found this to be a pretty interesting read. If you hate Rush Limbaugh and are completely biased, don't bother to read the transcript, but you are missing out on a good lesson on being successful. It emphasizes an attitude more people in this country should have. Instead of worrying about how other people are out to keep you down and how no one deserves anything they have, it focuses on having an attitude on how you, the individual, can be successful by doing what you want and doing it well. It focuses on how you need to bring yourself up instead of wasting you're time blaming someone else for holding you down. It's not a perfect breakdown that solves all the country's problems but what he says is true and actually inspiring instead of the depressing stuff you hear that blames everyone but the individual.

    College Student Thinks the 1% Has All the Money and He Won't Get Any - The Rush Limbaugh Show

    "But most people who are in the 1% are there because they work harder than anybody else, because they found what they love doing, and what they do really isn't work to them. They can't wait to get up every day (including on Mondays) to go back to work because it's what they love most in the world -- and since they love it, they happen to do it better than most other people do.

    Actually, the fake call is a better example of how a paid professional liar spins his web of deceit.

    If you didn't catch it, and obviously you didn't, he was bragging about himself, not addressing the top 1% of WEALTH!!!

    I don't listen to Rush, or any other talking head, but i'd say he made some valid points. This supposed college kid was lost.........

    I'm confused, is this from Rush the right wings king? Or Rush....the entertainer?

    Besides, why dont you explain how Rush was wrong in his explanation :eusa_whistle:

    That was a good call... I was listening and was impressed.

    Thank you for the transcript.
    For this caller and all the detractors of people that are like me who ARE not part of the 1% but are in the 53% i.e. I'm not a wealthy person.. I am nevertheless a hopeful person at 68 years that I like Colonel Sanders will become one!
    But I don't begrudge the 1% rather want to be like them!

    I am though a thinker and fact finder.
    And the FACTS are as Rush said capitalism whether in China or USA is not a zero sum game. It is NOT composed of a finite amount of wealth as Joshua evidently was taught.
    PROOF?
    Consider what the gross domestic product of the USA was in 1800...
    GDP in 2005 dollars Population GDP per capita in 2005 dollars.
    1800 $ 12,987 5,297,000 $ 1,396
    1900 $ 422,843 76,094,000 5,556
    2009 12,987,400 307,483,000 42,247
    Measuring Worth - Measures of worth, inflation rates, saving calculator, relative value, worth of a dollar, worth of a pound, purchasing power, gold prices, GDP, history of wages, average wage

    Do you the reader understand?
    THE GDP grows and it grows FASTER then the population!
    Reader still don't get it?
    Then consider this..
    The richest person in the 1800s or 1900s did NOT have nor could imagine having what the average person who is considered "poor" today has!
    The average poverty level person today has what the richest person in the 1800s or 1900s could never imagine.........
    A FREE CELL PHONE!

    YES even the poor today have something the richest person in the 1800s couldn't even imagine!
    AND WHY? Like the GDP.. IDEAS!
    IDEAS that almost every one has but few ever execute!
    But it is the IDEA that is the key to all those trillions that are still available for the Joshuas!
    He just has to been motivated to execute!

    I was told not to take "Rush the entertainer" seriously several times. So I dont want to read and offer a serious opinion on something thats not to be taken seriously.
