    Restoring Honor - 8.28.10
    So? They surpassed that long ago and today thousands upon thousands took out their cell phones and donated $10 each.

    That means that they are gonna keep the money in their treasury so they can use it for other events that need money. I know it's hard to imagine saving money, but it is possible... It's a nonprofit organization so they are supposed to spend it on products that they buy and other things and are not intended for personal expenses. So before you start thinking "contributions in excess" = profits, they are a non-profit organization and are planning on using all those "contributions in excess" for other projects they have...

    Where did it ever say, promote for the common defence, and provide the general Welfare..... Please don't mix up the two....

    It's not a problem if it made clear to all that donate, that this is the situation. I don't believe most charity events are handled this way.

    do you remember when those representative members of the "professional left" whom gibbs suggested should be drug tested offered up as a means to deflect the crescendo of criticism obama took for his relationship with the reverand wright and his gd church of chickens roosting (which spiritual mentor, from whom obama took the title for his first audacious book, was soon after tossed under the cruel wheels of the campaign bus) by picking a "random" conservative---say, karl rove or fred barnes---and labeling him a racist?

    He's putting on a massive, nationally televised, self-promotional free-for-all and paying for it with charitable donations.

    Sheesh. Take off the blinders.

    Yeah, the guy's taken a vow of poverty in order to help others; Beck does his rodeo-clown routine for FREE.



    Mmm-hmm..



    Impressive stats. I wonder how much of his own money he's donated to this "fund?" Beyond this, does it not concern any of you Beckies that this douche is using charitable donations to pay for his Glenn Back fan club rally?

    Also, I've asked several times and thus far, not ONE of you Beckerheads has been able to provide an answer. Maybe you could tackle the burning question:

    How, exactly, is Glenn Beck/the rally going to "restore honor to America?" Specifics, please.
    Wow, nice diversion, Democrats controlled the Senate and still allowed passage of the war resolution? Over and over I have posted actual quotes of Democrats leading up to that vote some of which were made prior to 2001 when Bush took office. Lest you forget that the Iraq Liberation act was signed by Bill Clinton. It really is a waste of time posting all those quotes again because obviously the guy liberals called dumb and stupid was able to fool all those Democrats that voted for the resolution.

    By the way, not that it matters but I had three family members serve in Iraq and all came back with the same story, it was the right thing to do. Reliving it now is simply a diversion from the disaster in the WH.

    Doesn't seem to matter to libeals what facts are presented. As for the "fund" why don't you do some research and find out for yourself what Beck has given. You might ask Marcus Luttrell what Beck has done for him but no, you have to speculate negatively.

    I don't see how thousands of Americans paying their own way to D.C. to participate in a rally to "Restore Honor" is a bad thing. Maybe you should try and answer your own question, how does that fact hurt?

    Beck's company, Mercury Radio Arts?, is a non-profit organization?
