He did hammer Bush a lot.
I just think the guy wants all government to go away and get the hell out of everyones lives.

Regulating at the federal level, is control.

Originally the only control the federal government had was of our defense and our foreign affairs and trade. As long as the states had equal say, the Federal government didn't get involved, to force states equality.

Everything else was under States control.

He is talking about things that are very frightening, because he is trying to frighten you.

Ignorance and fear are his tools. He counts on making you afraid, he exploits your ignorance.

OMG we are heading for a one world government? What will we do?

First of all, we aren't. Even if we were it would take centuries, so chill out. Second, why would that be a bad thing necessarily, depending on how it was accomplished? World peace, equitable distribution of resources, conservation of the environment...lots of good things could come from it, along with the bad.

Why do you automatically assume it would be bad? It could be good, bad, and probably somewhere in between.


NO ONE should listen to Glenn Beck or his left-wing counterpart, whoever that might be.

START THINKING FOR YOURSELF.

It also has received significant funding from Democracy Alliance (funded in large measure by George Soros), MoveOn.org, and the New Democrat Network.




George Soros runs that ship. Glenn has made a point to review those very issues, Media Matters has stretched, twisted and flat out lied about.



Guess what, Glenn has the facts to prove his stance.

George Soros and Ariana Huffington have admitted it is OK to lie to smear Glenn Beck, because his message is hurting the Progressive movement.


Media Matters and the Huffington Post are the Democrat squawk boxs
How about this: Instead of bashing who funds Media Matters or whatever, why don't you spend some time trying to debunk their evidence against Beck. I dare ya.

Where did you hear Glenn has lost 1/3 of his audience? From Media Matters?
That is a rumor with no facts to back it, started by George Soros.
This very subject was investigated and traced back to George Soros, starting a rumor with Ariana Huffington.
Ah no, it's his Nielsen ratings.

Glenn Beck has lost 1/3 of its TV audience since January | Media Matters for America

Sorry

Lol! What's the source for this, the same as the other one?!

It's nowhere on the Internets, that's for sure.

I have researched the things Beck has talked about. Have you? Your already closed off your brains to this. Show me what he is telling Americans is a lie. So that means you need to watch him and pick the subject he's on and prove to us that it is a lie. If you can't be bothered--then you don't have anything productive to this conversation.

Start with this. This is a on-going topic.

Yeah, me too. And Media Matters needed start up money for sure, but it's self sufficient now -- in the millions every year. They wouldnt be doing so well if Fox, Rush et al. didnt provide them with so much material -- something new, every day

Yet here you sit thinking the government is going to create all these jobs, aren't you?

I got news for you! The Federal, State and Local Governments do not create jobs, unless it is to build a bigger bureaucracy hiring for government jobs.
Greece, 1-n-4 work for the government. Hmmmm!!!!!

Government create regulations, because they feel they can regulate better than the free market. They create these big bureaucracy's that screw it up worse than it would have been had they left it alone and let the free market fix it on its own.
