From the Rush Limbaugh Morning Update: "Sister Act"
A group of Roman Catholic nuns has launched a traveling protest. The "Nuns on the Bus" tour started Monday in Des Moines, and will end up in Washington July 2. The nuns are protesting Republican budget proposals they claim "hurt the poor and vulnerable."
"We cannot stand by silently when the U.S. Congress considers further enriching the wealthiest Americans at the expense of struggling, impoverished families," says their fundraising website. They plan to Occupy, I mean, "visit" Republican Congressional leaders' local offices. Clearly, by virtue of being nuns, they expect to engage in political activism without challenge.
Sisters: what's hurting the poor, vulnerable, and struggling families are the policies of President Kardashian. Record joblessness; the housing industry in shambles; job-killing regulations; higher taxes; Obamacare; the oil moratorium; the nixing of the Keystone pipeline; record homelessness in Los Angeles and other big cities, Obama's hand is behind real misery, affecting real people.
Yet you Democrat activists, who happen to be nuns, have nothing better to do than take a multi-state bus ride to bash Republicans for a budget that is not enacted and that does not stand a prayer of being enacted under a Democrat Senate and a Democrat President, and can't possibly have anything to do with anybody's pain and misery.
Look, you Sisters have every right to protest whatever you want. But perhaps this Sister Act should, to borrow a phrase "fight the real enemy." And it's not proposed Republican budgets! Got it?

Quote Gems from Rush Limbaugh dot com:
"Odds are Marco Rubio will be president of this country someday. I'm fairly confident."
"I'll tell you, this MSNBC, folks, is a total laughingstock. An absolute, pathetic joke. They say they didn't have time to play the whole Romney tape, so they had to edit it to make Romney look bad -- and then laugh at him."
"You know, I really think, folks, that Barack Obama is the first president in history to run for reelection as a fringe candidate. That is the best way to describe where he is. He's running for election as a fringe candidate and running against capitalism. No question about it."
"Bob Turner was the president of Multimedia which syndicated my TV program. He now sits in the Weiner seat in the House and he's running for the Senate. There's a Republican primary in New York on June 26th, and if he wins that, he'll be up against Kirsten Gillibrand for all the marbles. We want him to win this seat. He'd be great in the Senate."
"This is really good. From the AP: 'Mitt Romney has declined to call on his supporters to stop heckling President Barack Obama's campaign.' Do you know Romney for the most part has to keep his campaign schedule and location somewhat secret to try to keep from being overwhelmed by paid professional protesters?"
"You cannot incentivize illegal immigration of any kind -- grandmothers, grandchildren, pregnant mothers, you could tug every heartstring there is out there -- you can't do that until you've secured the border. That has to happen first. Everybody knows this, but nobody, at this stage, has the gumption to do anything about it."
"The Democrats always hide behind children when they are attacking the Constitution or when they're attacking the rule of law. They're like hostage takers, in a way."
"I think the regime wants this to be unmanageable. They want this new policy involving the illegals to be unmanageable. When it's unmanageable, what do you do? Well, you define deviancy down. When it's unmanageable, you throw up your hands and say, 'Ah, we tried. We just couldn't do it. Just come on in!'"
"Obama, I don't think he cares about the border. I know he doesn't care about the border. I don't think he cares that there is a border. I don't think he cares if there weren't a border."
"What is more outrageous, a reporter trying to ask our king, uh, president a question, or NBC editing tape and lying about a politician's statement? A major American news operation edits tape in an effort to lie about a Republican, in this case Mitt Romney, presidential candidate, where is the outrage?"
"NBC News is an annex of the Democrat National Committee, and it is posing as a news network."
"So we have a president who is so out of touch he thinks automation is bad for the economy. ATMs are responsible for lost bank teller jobs. The media ignores all of that."
"We had people outraged at a reporter who was not heckling the president, he asked him a question, but they accuse him of heckling the president. People are outraged at this reporter for asking Obama a question, but there are no indications that anybody's outraged that adult Democrats are heckling a bunch of kindergartener kids for singing a song about the United States."
"Would somebody explain to me how in the world these reprobate Democrats somehow hold on to that image. They are anything but kind. They are anything but tolerant. They are anything about open-minded. They're anything but compassionate. And all this malarkey about 'for the children.'"
"What country that has undergone a Arab Spring is now more pro-American than they were before the Arab Spring? What country that's had an Arab Spring is more pro-American now than it was before? The answer is zip, zero, none!"
"You have to love the irony of the Democrats sending out people to disrupt Republican candidates for decades, and now the news media is outraged that Romney will not disown or try to rein in people who have the nerve to protest President Kardashian."
"The sentiment in this country -- when the pedal hits the metal, when the rubber hits the road, the sentiment in this country -- has not changed. There is not majority support for amnesty for ten people, much less 20 million."
"Obama's between a rock and a hard place. He's got nowhere else to go. He can't run on his record. He can't run on the future, other than to scare people about Romney. So all he can do is try to give away the store to every wacko extreme or otherwise minority group in this country."

The food stamp program has metastasized into an $82 billion a year monster that consumes 80% of the so-called Farm Bill. If you haven't seen it before, this pie chart is shocking: Under the Obama administration, spending on food stamps has skyrocketed, as an astonishing 46 million Americans, one-seventh of the population, are now on the program. So Senator Jeff Sessions tried to introduce a minimal amount of fiscal discipline »
That is the theme of the American Enterprise Institute's $50,000 video contest: AEI is proud to announce a $50,000 video contest. We're calling on everyone who loves America's system of free enterprise to submit a short video (under two minutes) that sets forth its worth — not on the basis of political ideology or economic efficiency, but on the basis of simple moral truths, namely: Free enterprise promotes earned success, »
This video from the Heritage Foundation and the Institute for Energy Research is called "The North Dakota Miracle: Fracking in the Bakken." North Dakota is booming like no other state in the Union; part of the explanation, of course, is oil. But as you watch the video, ask yourself: could any blue state ever take off economically as North Dakota has? It would be a mistake to attribute North Dakota's »
My jet lag and laptop are giving me fits in Jerusalem, where I have arrived to attend the Fourth Israeli Presidential Conference. Tonight's opening ceremonies featured the awarding of Israel's Presidential Medal of Merit to Henry Kissinger by President Peres himself. Peres gave a moving tribute to Kissinger in Hebrew followed by an equally good but different one in English. Kissinger opened his remarks with the observation (I am quoting »
With all the grim news for lawyers these days—white shoe firms like Dewey filing for bankruptcy, unemployed recent law school graduates (I know, non-lawyers are saying, "the problem with this is . . . what, exactly??), a Justice Department that suddenly can't seem to convict a ham sandwich—perhaps it's time to take in the lighter side of the law with a few excerpts from the most interesting law review in »
