I don't know about the no nonsense part, but you're a very funny guy.

Beck - a fountain of disinformation.

Ranting about conservatives does not answer the question about free speech.

It gets so tedious to talk to liberals, when a simple question on an issue exudes responses of "Oh yeah, well what about X." Pointing out isolated examples of similarly bad behavior does nothing to elevate present bad behavior. Although it does express the liberal mindset. When something is seen to be lacking, by comparison to something else, the liberal does not seek to improve the former, they instead choose to diminish the later. The poor is a good example. Liberals do not seek ways in which the poor can lift up their lives, they choose to diminish the lives of others, until eventually there is only mediocrity and sameness.

The tragedy of Glenn Beck is that he is living proof of how dumbed down Americans have become.

Americans are, quite honestly, the dumbest people in the industrialized world, and we always have Glenn Beck to remind us of this fact.
