    However, when I think of that giant, idiot turd, Glenn Beck, standing in front of Lincoln, one thought goes through my head: 'We could rebuild that memorial a lot faster than the WTC. Probably have it up by next summer.'

    Shame on anyone who goes to this event.

    Thats one big bottle of hateraide you are drinking there Hazl.

    What specific things he is doing at that event that you find so distasteful?

    That he believes in God?

    That he is refusing to allow people to bring signs?

    That its free?

    That he is refusing to allow Palin to say anything political?

    That he's going to honor MLK?

    That he's planning on honoring some of America's heroes?


    What specifically do you have a problem with the event itself or do you just hate Beck that much you don't care what actually is scheduled?

    Do you complain when they circle Jon Stewart or Chris Mathews? They are douches in my opinion but anyone is welcome to circle them. I wouldn't waste a wish on getting them to stop.
    What would I be scared of?

    I, usually, don't bother with these "listen to my douche nozzle" celebrity political tv personalities threads but since this keeps being a reoccurring topic, I have to interject.

    Beck is a showman, he does this for money.
    His show is filled with hyperbolic nonsense, mostly an appeal to ignorant people.
    I can't stand to see this man taken as seriously, as he is.

    If I were a conservative, I would be embarrassed by people using this man as a moniker of conservative thought.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Thread: Glenn Beck rally will be a measure of the tea party's strength

    It will?

    The rally will be a measure of Beck's personality and his ability to persuade and a measure of people's ability and willingness to support him and his particular agendas.

    The measure of the Tea Party will be only shown at the ballot box in November.

    Also, will the Washington Post be telling us on Monday that the Tea Party is going gang-busters if Beck draws a million people to Washington? I don't think it would.

    If that's not their goal, then they're damn stupid because that's what they're doing.

    So, it seems like, either way, we'll be better off with fewer Democrats in office.

    It rewards your dependency with more stolen money.

    It encourages the false beleive that being useless entitles you to a free living.

    It allows the useless to look to others to blame for their situation and discourages them from looking to their own flaws.

    How could that NOT act to keep people down, when they're rewarded for not trying?

    No.

    Your principals are, among others, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Harry Reid, the Clintons, and others whose sole reason for existence is bilking money and votes from the gullible.

    Those people don't have any principles, and naturally peole who follow them as a principal can't have any principles either.

    Does that chart count for inflation, and cost of living increases? It's reasonable for welfare spending to increase when cost of living increases.
    Is it?

    Isn't it MORE reasonable to expect that when the economy improves, when the unemploymentn rate declines, as hiring is expanded, that the welfare burden to the public would decline immediately and proportionately?

    Where are the corresponding declines in welfare expenditures to mirror expansions in the economy?

    They don't exist.

    Also, welfare spending, using your argument, shouldn't increase faster than the inflation rate, which has been reasonably flat since Reagan.

    Inflation has been low for decades.

    The increase in the population has been driven by the Invasion from Mexico, which has had the dual wrong effects of increasing the criminal burden on the welfare system and taken jobs away from those legitimately on the welfare system who might actually want to work.

    There's no reason program overhead should increase any faster than the inflation rate.

    You mean like a man who keeps blaming everything he does wrong on George Bush?
