The Beckoning

Anyone catch any of Beck's "I have a scheme" speech?

Hate!? The guy is an embarrassment in the face of this nation (if it still matters, for what it's worth)
GB is a Volksverhetzer or Demagogue, if you so will. Every reason to be not afraid, but very concerned with his activities.

Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin's unholy alliance

Salon is a unbiased source--NOT!.
Even they posted a link to this:
http://open.salon.com/blog/deborah_young/2010/08/28/glenn_beck_a_moving_assembly

There seems to be a LOT of fear of Glen and Sarah. Its almost as if their 1st amendment rights should be suppressed.
You guys are free to mock or underestimate this movement, and I am sure you will. but don't be surprised when the November elections show that more of America agrees that GB and SP are what is good and right, and what you guys support is not.

Time will tell.

I'm not crazy about the guy, I'll admit. But to dismiss my sentiments as merely irrational hatred is not accurate.

I've been hearing the guy now and then since '03 when I'd check into his routine on talk radio.

Guy is an opportunist who mixes about 40-50% fact into wildly slanted opinion and I continue to be gobsmacked that so many people think he's someone to follow.

As he has said, he is indeed a rodeo clown.

You contradict yourself as you go. Nobody's 1 st amendment rights should ever be suppressed, as it is a sure way to know what people are upto. There is no mocking and much less underestimation, as it is serious business, looking at what's going on out there.
The bigger picture counts. America is on the path of no return. GB & SP aren't going to fix it, just like BO didn't and will not fix it.
November? Elections? What are you talking about? A system that is designed to be swayed at any given time.

Keep on believing ... to live in a "free country".

I have here, my friends, evidence that the man known as MSFowler is in fact, an agent for Goldline, and as he knows that my company, FineGold is one of his firm's main competitors, with the exception that we sell gold at a fair price, he and Mr. Beck will stop at nothing to discredit me and my tireless efforts to expose the gold selling scam that is Goldline/Beck, et. al.

Yes, my friends, this is a nefarious scheme that would not have seen the light of day if not for the tireless work of my staff and we will not rest until, once again, Americans are being sold gold at a fair price and a fair price only.

-- We live in as free a country as we allow it to be. I don't agree with a lot of the things Glen Beck or the Rushies propagate, they remind me of the Moonies. On the other hand, I don't believe in the entitlement state either. What changed America in the 1960s was lots of people LOUDLY protesting until change happened. I was there, I didn't see it on TV, or read about it in a homogenized history book. I was living it. And it worked. Democracy in action. It took eight years and a lot of effort but it caused Watergate, the Pentagon Papers, the resignations of Agnew and Nixon. Only time in US history when the machinery and popular support of it caused a sitting president to resign. That's power.

Now few people change things because they are too busy doing self-interested things. The only people who actually got in trouble in the 1960s were the ones advocating violent revolution.

-- Don't confuse freedom and anarchy, or obsessive organization with dictatorship. Your wacky obsessive compulsive ex gf x 100 million = one strong trend in 2010 America. Counter it if you don't like it.

-- Be informed, and keep others informed.

-- Throw the bums out in city hall, so they don't vote themselves $800,000 salaries like they did in Bell, CA. To do that, you have to go to City Council meetings and..oh wait, I'll miss the latest episode of Family Guy, can't do that! Then live with the results!

-- Volunteer for the political or community movement/effort of your choice.

-- Don't expect immediate change, It took you six months to acquire that extra 25 lbs of ugly fat, and it'll take a while to lose it (short of decapitation).

It's up to you to start and persevere.

Oh, one last thing: if you don't vote and don't do any of these things, quit whining.

Beck and Palin, what a ticket that would be. The cheapest season of comedy ever. Imagine Palin debating Gingrich for the nomination. Imagine her debating Obama.Imagine Beck, minus his blackboard, crying big old crocodile tears in front of Joe Biden. The possibilities are endless. I can't wait
That rally was interesting only as a demonstration of the principle of mass hysteria.

Not! The 2008 election was a repudiation of Bush and the Republican bimbos and fascist fellators that elected him.

How's that Obama/Biden Democrat Majority Rule Stimulus dividend paying off for you here during the "Summer of Recovery?!
