You know I was sitting here thinking about Rush Limbaugh and his attitudes towards liberals and their efforts to in the least give lip service to helping American citizens in need and at most provide assistance and relief to United States Citizens of all income groups and I could not help meditating on Limbaughs profound misunderstanding of National and World Affairs.
The first thing that kept going through my head was the international food crisis that is factually sweeping the world and how smart our government has been to plan for the poor, for the poor are always among us and always will be among us. I also thought about the base of the Republican party blue collar religious individuals who are in desperate need of the programs and resources that the Democrats are proposing to help them. Rush’s solution that tax cuts will create jobs and resources for this blue collar base is frankly ludicrous. What Rush is failing to realize is that the world is increasinglya competitive world, an increasingly capitalist world, and captalists’ are playing on the international playing field not the National Playing field. The only way to attract capital and capitalists to any Nation or society is to have a skilled workforce . However according to several sources the quality of the United States Educational system is not competitive, is not even in the top ten of best educations in the world. According to U-wire:
” In both studies, Finland, Australia, Belgium, Austria, Hungary, Netherlands and the United Kingdom beat the United States, while the Asian nations of South Korea, Japan and Singapore ranked first through third, respectively. “
Now Rush is so fond of the word capitalism, in an increasingly technological world surely a smart capatalist survival of the fittest corporation is not going to bring his capital to the United States for complex jobs when all sources show that this is not the best place to get smart capital. He’s going where the best capital is and it’s not the United States. This is what smart legislators and a president realize. If your human resources lack the skill to compete world wide, a smart government provides assistance so that they can eventually be able to compete.
Finally I don’t know who Rush represents surely he does not represent blue collar workers becaue there jobs have been gone for a long time and the job losses we are dealing with are the stragglers, surely Rush is not talking about the middle class becasue they are in need of help too. Is Rush Limbaugh representing the Very wealthy. Bill Gates has a foundation that provides food aide to hungry people all around the world and says that he’s grateful to public education and libraries for helping him to reach his full potential. Surely he’s not talking about Warren Buffet because he says he believes in helping also. I am a little confused as to who rush is representing. The only people he seems to be representing so far are the virulent racists who are so prejudice that they will work against their very own interests.
While yesterday Rush Limbaugh bragged on the fact theat he did not need a prompt to speak and could go on and on maybe Rush should do less talking and more studying the bible and world affairs. Below is a little bible lesson for Rush.
