Rush Limbaugh has told his listeners that they should ignore all the science crap, and the scientist that spiel it. They are charlatans trying to confuse us all with mystic mumbo jumbo on all kinds of subjects, but especially the outrageous bull on global warming. He never finished college, but he makes a lot more money than a college grad. No he makes more money than thousands of college grads combined! So it makes sense to listen to what he has to say doesn’t it?
The guy is a lot like you and me. Rush loves guns and fast cars, and so do we. The talk show host owns a big plane. I wish I could afford one, but I can’t. I don’t have my own radio show with millions of listeners, and that got me to thinking about what he told all of us, about science.
Rush earns his living using an invention of science, broadcasting towers. They are powered by the scientific discovery of electricity. That has been around forever in the form of lightning, but scientist found a method to generate more of it, and to harness it. Limbaugh’s voice is converted to an electric signal and sent out over the airwaves, another scientific term. I have never seen one, but I believe it is there, because science has learned to convert the signal back into Rush’s voice. I hear it on my radio, another invention of science.
The invention of guns was the result of science, and all their improvements were the result of science. It seems to me that if it wasn’t for science all of his listeners would have the right to bear rocks. That isn’t as catchy as the right to bear arms.
Fast cars are the result of the scientific invention of the combustion engine. An engine with a lot of horsepower, another term invented by scientist to rate the engines. I know my car doesn’t have real horses under the hood; because I‘ve never found any feces under it, never. But you know what else; I know Rush Limbaugh believes in science too, even though he tells you and me not to believe in it. Otherwise, he would never get on that one-hundred-thousand-pounds of iron, that he calls his plane without believing it would lift into the air and take him to some other place.
