    Wow and Alveda King is ridiculous. So far what I gather this thing is about these people think we don't honor the troops (which we do), and apparently keeping gays from marrying, and putting prayer back in school. I dunno, it doesn't seem to have one focal point.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Yes, I most certainly would.

    Did we get rid of Congress at the same time? Because if we did, I must have missed that.

    Glenn Beck isn't making a dollar off this rally. Money that was donated by individuals funded this. Anything that was left over went directly to the Special Operations Warriors Fund. Beck never even touched the donations at all.

    You know this for a fact? What reasonable person in their right mind would have an issue with paying tribute to our troops?

    From Beck's own website:
    EVENT DESCRIPTION

    Throughout history America has seen many great leaders and noteworthy citizens change her course. It is through their personal virtues and by their example that we are able to live as a free people. On August 28, come celebrate America by honoring our heroes, our heritage and our future.

    Join the Special Operations Warrior Foundation, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and many more for this non-political event that pays tribute to America’s service personnel and other upstanding citizens who embody our nation’s founding principles of integrity, truth and honor.

    Our freedom is possible only if we remain virtuous. Help us restore the values that founded this great nation. On August, 28th, come join us in our pledge to restore honor at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.
    Restoring Honor - 8.28.10

    Face it folks, those who are so opposed to this event don't even have an idea what it is even all about. They get their "news" from places like Huffington Post, Media Matters and other left-wing "media". It's OK to dislike Beck, but to lie about what this rally is all about is either intellectually dishonest or void of all reason and logic.

    For some reason, Sarah Palin reminds me of Jane Fonda during the Vietnam war. Only less intelligent.

    You are certainly entitled to your opinion as am I. Sarah Palin was Governor of Alaska, Jane Fonda made a work out video. Enough said.

    This Beckian rally is like the TV show Seinfeld. It's about nothing.

    No one knows what the hells it's about -- "Restoring Honor"... what the hell does that even mean.

    A sick joke being played on the rubes too caught up in the talking point mentality to see what's going on.
