Why would Beck or any other political commentator have to commission universities or any one else to study facts, facts are facts, there real, no need for any fact finding. Health care cost so much because everyone has there hands in the till from the docs themselves to lawyers and even the people that write books on the drugs. FDA my ass thats just a way for a politician to know way ahead of the game what and how much money to put on what drug company. One aspirin a day will keep the doctor away and the money in your pocket. Most of the pills they want to feed you anymore will kill you twice as fast as the grease on that bacon you had at breakfast. The best doctor for you is yourself. Listen to yourself, if after you eat you don't feel good well don't eat that any more. If you run a mile and your feet hurt buy a new pair of sneaks and cut your toe nails. If your heart hurts after the run well drink a shot of JD next time before you go for the run and see how it goes, might take several shots to make things right but before long one way or another that mile will go by smooth as silk, lol.

Facts are facts and to many people want to live off of another without working or sweating thats why insurance or a house even a car is so expensive and just think it hasn't even hit the fan yet. If you think the crash is over well it's far from it wait till you stop putting money into the till, you as in government you. Wait till china stops buying up all of our junk bonds and says well maybe it's time you paid us.

Obama didn't have nothing to do with any of this crap thats going on, this has all been done by them old crooks in congress and old crooks on wall street. I foresee the next war will be against the young and old not north and south or east and west. We have made the young slaves to pay for all the mistakes the old have done when what we should of done was let the old take there lumps and file for bankruptcy.

Because Glen Beck is too ADD to be able to read anything longer than a fortune cookie.

Have not heard him that much, but when he is in a satirical mood I thought he was very funny and biting, so I can understand how he can be well hated by those who do not agree with him.

Other times he can over dramatize things.

By and large I found his views to be plain old common sense. There are still a lot of fools out there that think two plus two equals four instead of five, which is the newthink.

IMO, John Stewart is a jerk who's pulling for Obama and the left.The Colbert report is much the same. Almost all they do is slame conservatism and ignore what the lefties are doing. It seems every time I watch it they're still slamming Bush and Co. He's gone now, lets move on! I believe that Glen Beck cares more about this country and where its headed than those other two knuckle heads.
On a side note I find myself wondering...Where do Canadians go when they are having serious health problems and time is of the essence? I'm pretty sure they come here and pay out of pocket. Not to say we couldnt improve our system without completely going socialist.

John Stewart and Stephen Colbert are comedians. They freely admit that are comedians. The laugh track when they tell jokes should give you a clue that they are not even pretending to be anything else but comedians. Also, the fact that their programs are on the Comedy Chanel should be another indication.

Beck is a moron trying to pretend he is a real journalist; quivering lip and all. The fact that his program is on a supposedly real news outlet is designed to make his buffoonery sound creditable. If you listen to his blather about how the health care system is the best in the world, look back a year when he had some minor surgery and he had a series about how he barely made it back alive because the system was so horrible.

I don`t know how many Canadians come to the U.S. for cash health care but they could save a lot if they do the same as a lot of Americans & go to other countries. The biggest problem in Canada is that they never had enough medical care or equipment even before they went to Gov. controlled. I was talking to a few Canadians in Grove City a few days ago & they brought the subject up & none were totally happy with their system but no one said they would like to change it for ours.

Canada now has a lot of private health care companies starting up for specialized medical procedures due to the government run plan's inability take care of them.

To get back on subject I also saw today where a lot of advertisers are pulling away from Glenn Beck. It just makes me wonder if his opinions will change when the money starts to go. Another thing, I`m just glad I live in a country where a person can get away with saying some of the things that some like Beck come up with & not just simply disappear.

Regular listeners know that he's onto the corruption of Acorn, SEIU and the rest and is about to dump a major story on the issue. It comes as no surprise that attempts to belittle the messenger have begun.

Stay tuned.

Belittle the messenger...wow Black and Blue you have really put Beck up on a pedestal. Now here is what the people at floor level are saying. It's going to cost big money and I mean big money if you want to live in this so called great country of ours, and if you want health care coverage it's going to cost you your kids money too so be prepared to spend spend spend to stay alive or have a living will written up so they can't take it all. The clowns thought they could just have everyone hand over there money so that the clowns could invest it in the stock market so the clowns could make a buck in the buying and selling of junk, speculation, inflation. Now since that is no longer a viable option they are going for the kill (pardon the pun) health insurance. Soon I would think people will realize that the insurance is costing them more than if they just paid the doctor visit in the first place. Soon people will just have catastrophic health care plan and pay cash for the everyday needs. And maybe someday people will be people and start to realize just what kind of country this is really turning out to be. This was the greatest but just like Rome it's fallen and the people that live here don't even know it. China is now doing what we used to do, buying everyones debt and going to kick back and make 10 percent or more on the sweat of the few workers that really do sweat while others sit back and scheme on how to make money on others suffering. Hell this is worse than any third world regime. We don't work together anymore, now it's more like the mob, gangsters, mafia, godfather, call it what you will but it stinks!

Yes, but unfortunately most young people (and not so young) get their political information from these two shows. That's scary! :shock:
Have you ever seen either show make a funny about Obama? Didn't think so... ;)

Green Jobs Czar - Van Jones

• Excerpt from a Nov. 2005 interview in the East Bay Express:
Jones had planned to move to Washington, DC, and had already landed a job and an apartment there. But in jail, he said, "I met all these young radical people of color -- I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, 'This is what I need to be a part of.'" Although he already had a plane ticket, he decided to stay in San Francisco. "I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary." In the months that followed, he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. "I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th," he said. "By August, I was a communist." In 1994, the young activists formed a socialist collective, Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM, which held study groups on the theories of Marx and Lenin and dreamed of a multiracial socialist utopia. They protested police brutality and got arrested for crashing through police barricades. In 1996, Jones decided to launch his own operation, which he named the Ella Baker Center after an unsung hero of the civil-rights movement.
