Rash Judgement Show

this is Rash Chadwick and this is the Rash Judgment Program
on Powertalker 940 AM! I'm righter than Rush and we do battle
every day with the liberals, the media, and those people who
run your children's school and are trying to turn them into
We've got a lot to talk about today but first and foremost
is America's War on Terror. Who's helping and who should just
get the hell out of the way ?
It is becoming more and more obvious that there are significant
groups of Americans who are simply not doing their part to
help win the War on Terror. In fact we might even say that
some of them are helping the enemy!
Who am I talking about? Well to start with let's take a look
at our federal employees.
Hundreds of thousands of Federal workers got an early Christmas
present from the Bush administration last week. They were
approved for a 3.1 % pay raise. The raise , of course, is
going to be a bit smaller than they were anticipating. The
reason, as if any explanation was required and as our President
explained in his letter to Congress, (and I'm quoting) is
that we have an ongoing "national emergency" and "such cost
increases would threaten our efforts against terrorism". The
scheduled increase would have too expensive and as a result
"inappropriate" when we're engaged in the current struggle
Now this seems perfectly reasonable to me but would you believe
it these workers are unhappy about the raise and they're already
complaining. The President of the Government Employees Union,
a Mr. Harnage, is calling this a "slap at federal employees."
Well, maybe they need to be slapped, Mr. Harnage.
I think it's pretty damn obvious that we would have caught
Bin Laden and Mullah Omar and gotten rid of Al Qaeda if we
just hadn't had to hand out all those exorbitant paychecks
every two weeks. How can you possibly run a decent war against
the evildoers if you have to keep paying all those greedy
employees? Christmas is coming up and I suppose the damn ingrates
will be wanting that whole day off.
Well, when the Sears Tower comes down I'll bet they'll be
damn pleased with themselves. Instead of doing their part
for America they've chosen to think only of their paychecks.
How about asking your people to donate their services a couple
of weeks a year, Mr. Harnage. Half of them don't do any work
anyway, but I guess you'd rather give aid and comfort to Osama.
But federal workers are hardly the only group of people to
hamper the administrations effort to defeat terror. How about
all those freeloaders on Medicare? The Bush Administration
has had no choice but to impose very necessary cuts on Medicare
payments because the elderly have simply unpatriotically refused
to stop getting sick. We've got evildoers running all over
Africa and Indonesia and they're blowing up nightclubs and
resort hotels and they're even shooting missiles at airplanes
and nothing can be done about it because we've got to foot
the bill for Granny's X-rays.
And now the same group of old it's-all-about-me geezers is
looking for the prescription drug coverage that they were
promised in the 2000 campaign. Well, Granny, when you get
some turban-headed shoe bomber sitting next to you on the
bus I'll bet you're going be singing a different tune. Get
with the program, Grandma, or just get out of the way if you
know what I mean.
And you war veterans, don't even get me started on you guys.
Hey, look, you did a good job once but now you're just a drag
on the system. I mean last year the Bush administration had
to stop informing the veterans that services were available
because the old guys kept bellying up to the trough. Running
up that French beach into those German bullets was a pretty
patriotic thing in its time but what exactly have these people
done for us lately? Normandy, Guadalcanal? That stuff is just
so over if you ask me.
And now they still want to fill up the Veterans Hospitals
and get their wounds and amputations and traumas taken care
of. And all the while we've got an Axis of Evil to fight.
Fortunately, now the adults are in charge and are telling
them to take their silly problems elsewhere. You had your
day, vets, but now you're either with us or you're with the
evildoers. Greatest Generation. Yeah, right.
And as bad as they are the Vietnam guys are even worse. Half
of them live in refrigerator boxes and let's face it they
didn't even win their war and they have the nerve to have
their hands out. In the words of our great Vice President,
Dick Cheneym - fellas, it's time to get some other priorities.
I'll be back on the other side of the break to take your
