Beck stated that a White House staff member called in the middle of the show yesterday and complained about the Czar references.

If he is so easily dismissed as some here have stated, why would a member of the Presidents Staff bother to call a TV show producer to complain about something so trivial?

Beck is a paranoid with delusions of grandeur.

Just because Glenn says it happened, doesn't mean it is true.

Two years ago he was telling us all about the imminent attack on school buses.

Yes, Beck is way out there sometimes but where would we be without people like the Becks, Limbaughs. It's the dogs bark that keep the wolves at bay. Is he really schizo or is all this clatter just increasing his ratings.

Like I said, why don't they run for office and change things. They don't want to change things they want to have them stay the way they are. So they can grip and get paid big sums of money, and where does that money come from yes you and I all money comes from us as a whole, we just need to start putting our money into places where it does good, every penny should go for doing good not paying Beck and the others like them to rant and rave about things they have no clue about.

First of all if there was an actual question about Pres. Obama's birth certificate don't you think that there is at least one yes one KKK member on the house or senate seat. Now come on fellas we are living in the real world, sheesh. And that one member would make sure that the word got out.

Beck is an unimportant slob that can't make money any other way than to trash talk someone else well I'm not paying for him. I stopped buying products that support people like Beck long ago, seems to be the only way you can change anything is to stop giving the giver the money to give.

Run for office! If you have a problem with the system run and change it! But don't just be a trash talking scum bag that knows he would loose any election he would run in. How does that saying go about talking and walking I forget. but I know that it means if you don't know what your talking about shut up or go back to school and learn what your talking about.

One thing I do know about the government is they are not living in the today world all that much, most of them are looking 5, 10, even 20 yrs ahead to try and be forward thinking. If I get a splinter today yep I'm pulling it out, But if I knew I was getting one ahead of time then I wouldn't of gotten it to waste my time in getting it out. Well thats what our government tries to do think ahead. Yep they screw up, but I will tell you one thing, they do a better job of it than if I was in there making the decisions.

Rant over.

Is that all you've got?

Ridicule and taunts are only affective against the uninformed, it also shows the weakness of an argument.

Take an honest look at the questions raised on his show this week then try to square them with your position that they are false.

They wouldn't get in anymore than you could become president. It's a machine consisting of two parties that is so far off course that it cannot be wrighted in my opinion.

They don't want to change things they want to have them stay the way they are.

No one on the hill wants anything different! How many times have you seen politicians of every color, party, and philosophy jump up on the stump and complain about the old, the young, the poor, the rich, blacks, whites, latinos, immigrants, illegals, food, gas, drugs, cars, trucks, the environment, the solar system, and a hundred other things? EVERY TIME! Does anything ever change? NO since it wouldn't help them get elected next time.

So they can grip and get paid big sums of money, and where does that money come from yes you and I all money comes from us as a whole, we just need to start putting our money into places where it does good, every penny should go for doing good not paying Beck and the others like them to rant and rave about things they have no clue about.

And where should we put our money so that not all of it ends up in corporate coffers, CEO's pockets, and eventually bought politicians?

First of all if there was an actual question about Pres. Obama's birth certificate don't you think that there is at least one yes one KKK member on the house or senate seat. Now come on fellas we are living in the real world, sheesh. And that one member would make sure that the word got out.

They're all in bed together. Even if one of them was really an alien and had a tail no one on the hill would say squat. As for him being illegal, I could not care less for the previous reasons mentioned. There are more important matters at hand.

Beck is an unimportant slob that can't make money any other way than to trash talk someone else well I'm not paying for him. I stopped buying products that support people like Beck long ago, seems to be the only way you can change anything is to stop giving the giver the money to give.

Run for office! If you have a problem with the system run and change it! But don't just be a trash talking scum bag that knows he would loose any election he would run in.

So let me get this straight. If you don't win an election you're a trash-talking scumbag but if you win you're the best thing since sliced bread? That would indicate every politician is the former since most don't get in the first time around. I seem to recall Hillary and Obama talking *censored* about each other until he got the nod. All of a sudden they're best of friends and she gets a prized seat out of the deal. So tell me which one is the trash talking scumbag in that mix?


How does that saying go about talking and walking I forget. but I know that it means if you don't know what your talking about shut up or go back to school and learn what your talking about.

One thing I do know about the government is they are not living in the today world all that much, most of them are looking 5, 10, even 20 yrs ahead to try and be forward thinking.

Yes I agree, they're looking ahead. Ahead at their own careers and that's it.


If I get a splinter today yep I'm pulling it out, But if I knew I was getting one ahead of time then I wouldn't of gotten it to waste my time in getting it out. Well thats what our government tries to do think ahead. Yep they screw up, but I will tell you one thing, they do a better job of it than if I was in there making the decisions.

Glad to see you're happy with the government making decisions for you. I'll take the other road and think for myself.

Rant over.


Not singling you out, just replying to your rant.

As for the advertiser boycotts, they aren't working go look up the news.

Furthermore, the group Color of Change that is propagating the boycott calls was founded by guess who......Van Jones, your self avowed Communist "Green Jobs Czar."

Sorry about the previous reply it went before I intended it to - I hit the wrong button.

I attended my annual Bus driver's safety meeting yesterday and believe me the threat of an imminent attack on school buses are on the minds of every school administrator and bus driver. And why not - the threat of terrorism hasn’t gone away, especially the home grown kind; remember, just recently the home grown terror cell that was uncovered in NC. School buses are a great target; one adult, no weapons and as many as 75 hostages. Talk about a soft target; if it hasn't happened yet we have been blessed. Say what you will about Beck’s other positions but schools buses are indeed a target. Did you read about the school bus in Atlanta yesterday that was commandeered and ended up in a ditch? This was a nut case but what if it was a planned attack? There’s not a thing you could do about it so wake up, find some other reason to explain why Glenn Beck is schizophrenic and pray that your school system is taking this threat more seriously then you are. Maybe being a schizophrenic isn't such a bad thing in this instance.

Out of curiosity, have you looked at the security at your schools and buses? If I'm a terrorist I'm not hitting a metro school because the security is tight, I'm heading to the country where people think "it could never happen here." Lisa

Cabinover, I hate it when somebody tries to put words in my mouth, reminds me of my ex-wife that did a poor job of it, she did it so everything went her way and not the real way. Well needless to say she is my ex-wife.

Here is my explanation of what I said, If Beck or the others have a better way then run and make it better if not shut up!

I remember the words of a man in a movie he said, "A man has to know his limitations." I know I can't run a country so I don't even try to. I have a hard enough time running a home let alone a country. If Beck or the others can run a country then put up or shut up. I have not heard one idea of there's that would help the American people anymore than what Pres. Obama has. You also know that we as citizens of the United States can oust Pres. Obama if we think he is going in the wrong direction and doing harm to the country, so where is the movement to do this, where are all the people at that want him out after what 200 days in office. I don't get it. Yep I will say it again I don't get it, and I'm glad I don't.

"They" would have less of a chance at the presidency than the average person. Unlike most people they're completely reactionary - not an original idea between all of them unless inventing new taunts and kindergarden level sound bites against the other side counts. All these talking heads do (on both sides) is whine, complain, grandstand and whip their blind faith followers into a frenzy about what the other side is doing.

"They" are doing an excellent job of keeping people exactly where both sides of our one party system want them - divided.

Just curious as to why a school bus would be a target, sure it would po a lot of people but they are not into holding hostages, they simply want to cause as much death & destruction as they possibly can. I hope that I am not wrong in this & I think we should all be aware of whats going on around us but I would think that a school bus just wouldn`t be big enough for them.

You aren't serious, Samhill, are you?

A coordinated hijacking and violent destruction of 10-20 school buses and occupants would grind this nation to a screeching halt, striking fear into every parent, grandparent and family with school age children in them. Schools across the country would be shut down for days, perhaps weeks. Parents would be forced into taking time off from work all at once, crippling the economy. Once schools opened again it would take many more days for attendance to get back up to normal levels and probably weeks and weeks for school bus use to get back to normal. Massive influx of parents driving their kids into and back from schools, causing all kinds of logistical issues and creating vector for follow up attack: terrorists taking advantage of the high traffic to drive car bombs into pickup/dropoff areas, or simply driving up onto the curbs and mowing kids down.

Remember the DC sniper ordeal? One of the victims was a bus driver (can't remember if it was a school bus or not) brought the area school bus system under a lot of parent pressure. Lots of driving kids to school individually. That was just one pair of guys taking out a few people.

I'd say school buses are a much more vulnerable target than say a mall or even the schools themselves. Captive victims, young innocent victims, high emotional impact, long lingering effects with spill over into tangential aspects of our lives, culture, and economy.

I can't even imagine what would be done in response in this country to such an attack. The response would probably be much more significant (violent, restrictive, liberty infringing, etc.) than after 9/11, both when it comes to foreign policy response and domestic policy response.
