    This is 100k people.[URL="http://http://www.google.com/imgres?

    87k is probably pretty accurate.

    You also have to factor in all the people who would have come but for the fact that they were dead or in gestation. Also, don't forget to add in the number of people who wanted to come but didn't know it. You could probably include people from other countries in that total, because if they were Gawd-fearin' Americuns they would have been at the rally.

    No, it wasn't a Tea Party rally and it wasn't advertised as so. It was advertised as recognizing the troops, not a religious revival meeting from a man who claimed to have a vision. There are elements of religious belief in some members of the Tea Party, but definitely not all. I only know what I saw. Admittedly it was hot and not a great day to listen to speeches, particuliarly rambling ones and that may have effected the reaction. But I heard most of the speech and I did not find it all that simulating.
    I didn't catch all of the event, but I saw bits and pieces of Becks rally and Sharpton's on C-SPAN and CNN off and on throughout the day, and frankly I didn't see what all the hoopla was all about. I mean, what about America needed to be restored? How has this country changed that much in 2 years other than we're in an economic funk right now? What honor has been lost during this Presidency because clearly if people have been paying attention to media coverage outside our coastal boarders they'd notice that many world leaders have more respect for this country now than they had 3-4 years ago. (See linked article, "America's Image in the World", on how other countries view the U.S. before 2008. See linked article, "World Warming to America Since Obama's Election, Poll Shows," since 2008.)

    So, I'm wondering what has changed? What about our American way of life needed to be "restored" not only in the mind of Glen Beck but in those who honestly believe our values or rights have been lost?

    If anything, I'd say alot of people have lost their freakin' minds, i.e., the natural-born citizen debate, the President's religious preference, arguing over the prudence of the bailouts, the outlandish claims made against healthcare reform, the issues surrounding the handling of the BP oil spill (i.e., the gov't's response time and/or holding BP's feet to the fire), etc., etc., etc., but I really don't see where the rights of American citizens or American's honor has been any more diminished now than they were prior to January 20, 2008. Domestically, people are clearly hurting due to the economic downturn, and as to be expected many people disagree with President Obama's policies, but internationally our image has improved around the world.

    If you got something, let's hear it.
    Dan Rather had experts too, hows his career doing again?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
