RUSH: I need to remind you: Today, this weekend, my friends, is the last chance to be part of our special promotion at the new Rush Limbaugh Store in honor of the United States military. A portion of all the proceeds from the entire promotion — today, yesterday, and the day before, all the way through Sunday — directly benefit the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation. It’s an incredible organization. I was there at the founding. I was there in the living room when this organization was put together.
They are dedicated to helping the families of Marines killed in action. They provide college scholarships, and sometimes (in case of natural disasters and things like 9/11), they expand the assistance beyond the Marine Corps to first responders, Secret Service, you name it. They did this at the Murrah Building explosion in Oklahoma City. They serve our country well, and of every $1 you donate, pretty much 99ȼ of it passes through to the recipients.
There’s so little administrative costs, it’s incredible how they do this. Minimal administrative overhead. The majority of every dollar raised goes directly to providing these scholarships and financial aid to the families of people killed in action. We’re talking about the United States military here, people who volunteer their lives, volunteer their service in ways that most of us don’t and wouldn’t. That’s why we always have them in our thoughts here and why we always other than them, defend them, and remain in awe of them.
So here’s what we’re doing. Listen carefully because this is it. Today through Sunday is it. Simply shop in the new Rush Limbaugh Show Store at RushLimbaugh.com right now and you will automatically be entered to win a grand prize for two people. If you happen to win, I will carve out some precious moments of my day to personally call you and let you know that you’re a grand prize winner. What’s the grand prize?
Well, it includes a four-day, three-night trip to Palm Beach, Florida, to meet me and our team here — and it’s whenever you can make it. We don’t force you to squeeze in a trip at a point of time in the year when nobody wants to come. We don’t make you come during hurricane season. We don’t make you come during the peak of the rain season. We don’t make you come when everybody else is leaving. We don’t make you come when the hotel rates are the cheapest.
You pick when you want to come, including if it’s peak season, and we will make it happen. We don’t skimp on anything. We don’t skimp on the travel. We don’t skimp on the hotel. We don’t skimp on the incidentals, because we value every one of you — and when we offer a prize, we go top drawer with it. All you have to do to be entered, is shop. In addition to the grand prize — there are two of those grand prizes. In addition, there are others.
You may be one of the hundreds who will receive a special signed photo or other cool keepsakes from us here at the EIB Network. See all the rules at RushLimbaugh.com. So Memorial Day’s coming up and Father’s Day right around the corner. We have you covered. I’m not just saying this, folks. If you haven’t been to the new online store, you should go, because it exists as a result of popular demand. It languished for a while.
There was nothing new in there, and people were asking, “Why not?” They were demanding it be upgraded, and so we have. We’ve upgraded the design of the store. We’ve upgraded the stuff that’s in the store, some of the highest-quality-at-the-price-point stuff that you can get. It looks sharp. It’s very affordable. We do all of the packing and shipping ourselves. We don’t farm anything out. We produce it right here in the United States. There is exquisite care taken in every beautiful, custom box that arrives at your door.
I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. By the way, we’ve turned over some of the inventory now to things we’ve never sold before: Brand-new designs on T-shirts and polos and caps, men and women, large and small, XX. You name it; we have it. You will not be disappointed. You have to go to the Rush Limbaugh Show Store at RushLimbaugh.com. Just click on the store tab and you’re there — and once you start shopping, you’re automatically entered to win the grand prize in honor of the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation.
You can do this up until Sunday at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time, but this is the last active day you’re gonna be reminded of it.
RUSH: New Fairfield, Connecticut, and Sheryl. Great to have you. Hi.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. It’s great to talk to you.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: And I can promise you that my explanation will hang together.
RUSH: Oh. I like it! Thank you.
CALLER: (chuckling) Well, I called you last August because on your recommendation I bought some Boll & Branch sheets. When you talked to me, you said, “Since you’re a woman that likes fine material,” and I loved the sheets, “you blessed my husband and I with some apparel from your store.” All I can tell you is that whoever is even thinking about going to your store for such an incredible worthy cause as our military, please do it, because this is incredible apparel. You wash it and it comes out of the dryer wrinkle-free. My husband and I are getting ready to wear our little zip-up golf jackets. It’s just the most incredible material. It just is — and quality like you can’t believe.
RUSH: Well, I must tell the audience this is totally unsolicited call. She’s uncompensated, unpaid for, and — as far as I know — has not been comped any merchandise. This is a legit call that came in over the transom. But you are so right about this, especially you know what we hear about the most is the material on the T-shirts.
CALLER: Ah! Yes.
RUSH: People think when they’re buying a T-shirt, they’re buying an old cotton T-shirt that’s gonna fade and shrink up after a while. This is not traditional T-shirt material, and everybody is reacting to that, people that buy these and get these.
RUSH: Well, I just wanted to thank you for backing me up on this because it’s great.
CALLER: I really — and I just encourage people to call, because it’s for the military. If you’re ever gonna buy it, do it this weekend. It’s just the best. It’s the finest material.
RUSH: Well, that’s overwhelming. It’s over-the-top, overwhelming sweet. I thank you very much. See? A call like that, Monday through Thursday, we probably wouldn’t let that call through. But on Open Line Friday, we can’t stop ’em.
