A PDF file is essentially a scan of a document. PDF means Portable Document Format created by Adobe Systems in 1993. For the most part, anyone with a computer has been using PDF files on a regular basis for AT LEAST 10 nyears.
While it true that at one time, PDF files were not as sophisticated as they are now, that is how software works. If it is good software, it will stay around a while and evolve, grow, and improve. I’ll be honest, I don’t remember when Adobe added the search functinality to PDF files because it has been so long ago now that I don’t remember.
Now to Lush Windbag. He actually said that the Stimulus package dcouments were converted to a PDF format by the Democrats becuase the Dems didn’t want YOU (his words, not mine) to be able to see what was really in the bill.
So one of two thing is happening here. Either “comedian Rush Limbaugh” is a complete idiot or “comedian Rush Limbaugh” knows exactly how PDF files work and is relying on his listeners that might be less educated to not question his premise.
Almost every piece of widely-used, text-based software produced in the last 10 or 15 years has had a built in search function by using the CTRL+F combination. Not only do these software packages have the CTRL+F function, they also have search bars. HOW COULD ANYONE WHO USES A COMPUTER REGULARLY NOT KNOW THIS? And if you watch Limbaugh online during his radio show, the computer is sitting right there. And hes been on the air for almost 20 years.
It’s not like this is some obscure keyboard shortcut. There are a ton of them. Control+U is underline, Control+B is bold, Control+I, is Italicize, this list goes on and on and on.
So is Rush Limbaugh stupid? Is he pretending to be stupid to insight a riot against Democratic conspiracy? Or is he just relying on the fact that when he says something, he uneducated minions won’t question anything? The only reason he has such a widespread audience is because the ignorant and uninformed need a power greater than themselves to worship. My bet is on premise #3. Lush Windbag know exactly how PDF files work and tried to rely on the stupidity of the uninformed, Kool-aid drinking Ditto-heads (there’s a reason they call them that, they just agree with anything he says – “ditto”)
Did he really thnk we wouldn’t notice? He’s getting sloppy.
