Yep,I feel the same about the Left's Professional Agitators that make a Ton of Heavy Cash by Stoking the Fires. It's nice to see Business is Brisk in these days. Maybe someday we'll all grow smart enough to play"Star Trek",get together,and Gang Up on them all and then try to find some Honest Common Ground to Save Our Country....Or we can just do the Civil War Route and get on with it....Sumthin's Gonna Pop,and real change will occur one way or another. I'd like us to all decide what's best for the Country's Continued Existence!

There was a time when Glen Beck liked Chris Christie. If he was consistent in his philosophy this would never have been possible.

I liked Chris Christie too ... and I defended GWB on this forum MANY, MANY times. Live and learn - we're only human.

Sure hasn't been profitable for me! :lol:

For the record, he has no desire to have his old job back - that was the main motivator for him starting his OWN network - so he;s not beholden to outside forces. He owns everything - owes nothing. Now he is free to report the truth - nothing more, nothing less. At Fox and CNN, it was reporting based on what favors you owed to someone - a far cry from the truth.

Here's my two cents...I'm a conservative Christian, and most likely I'm somewhere to the right of Beck on most issues. My wife has listened to Beck for years, back before the Fox TV show days, and still listens to his radio show semi-regularly, as well as regularly checking out the Blaze and GBTV.

I did enjoy Beck's TV show and enjoyed his "instructional" shows re. US history and the Constitution. He introduced us to the historian David Barton, who I think is tremendous. As for the radio show, my job doesn't allow much time most days for listening.

That said, there's always been something about Beck that's raised a bit of a warning flag with me. I can't quite put my finger on what it is, but I've told my wife many times I strongly suspect she's going to be very disappointed in Beck at some point in the future.

One thing (not the only thing, but one) that bothers me about him is that while he talks a good game about his faith, he's quite careless about his language on the radio. I know disliking swearing is a quaint anachronism in our "culture," even among contemporary Christian circles where vulgarity is almost encouraged these days. Even so, I think anyone who's serious about the Christian faith and following the life principles of the Bible is not going to be habitually using vulgar language.

Beck's show some days is as bad, language-wise, as many prime-time TV shows. I've had to turn him off more than once. Which is a shame because most of the time, he's saying things that need to be said, and that most other "conservative" talk radio people won't.

As far as Beck apologizing for being "divisive" or "tearing down" on his TV show, well, conservatives really have to stop buying into the liberal propaganda that discussing what we think is wrong with liberal positions is "divisive." That's just wrong, and certainly the libs haven't been shy about either stating their positions or ridiculing ours, and us. There's absolutely nothing wrong with pointing out where you think peoples' positions and thinking is wrong, as long as you stay civil and criticize the positions and ideas, not the person.

I find it hard to take Back seriously anymore. All the over dramatization is just too much. I still like listening occasionally but usually end up changing stations before long.
