RUSH: Julie in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, welcome to the EIB Network. Great to have you with us.
CALLER: Hello. How are you?
RUSH: Fine. Thank you.
CALLER: I just wanted to tell you a funny story. I’ve listened to you since 2000, and in 2004 I decided to go back to college after being out of high school for ten years, much because of what I’ve heard on your show about how you can do anything. You should do anything; you should not be okay with mediocre, et cetera, et cetera. You are the only one that’s ever put that idea in my head.
RUSH: Is that right? Your whole life?
CALLER: Yeah. (laughs) Yeah, it’s been that kind of life. But yes, that’s correct, and it was drilled in my head over and over again from listening to your show, you know, “Go out and do it. Just do it. You know, make something better of yourself. You have opportunity.” So I went back to school in 2004 and I had a professor who had a master’s and was working on his second master’s who was so book smart, you know, thought he knew everything, and he would bring up arguments in class over the economy, amendments, laws, different things — and I’m telling you what, the only thing I’d done since high school was work, and then I started listening to your show. I could go toe to toe with that guy and argue with him about anything, and make him look stupid in front of the class just by listening to your show. (Laughing)
RUSH: Did he know that he looked stupid or did he give you problems? Did he think you were being insolent and disrespectful?
