    Trust me, I am laughing. At Beck and his brainwashed followers.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    A massive earthquake is funny?

    I want to put him on the air 24/7/365.

    Within six months he will be a distant memory.

    Your second comment is ridiculous and ignorant.
    Maybe God did this to Japan to show the rest of the world how civil people act in a disaster. I find it refreshing that they just wait patiently in long lines for food, water and gas. There is no looting etc. No people screaming for the government to save them etc.

    I agree, especially if you turn the volume off. Just watching his facial expressions can be a doozy.

    But it's the Glen Beck types that make it difficult for me to attend church on a regular basis. I should ignore them, but it's hard.

    The average congregation is full of some of the most wonderful, giving, and genuinely good people you'll ever meet. There's certainly an aura to these folks that I do believe God has a hand in.

    However, the church is also a magnet for extremely addictive personalities, as well as the bipolar crowd. For many, they simply trade their addiction for alcohol, drugs, gambling, or porn for another more "accepted" addiction, which is the church. And instead of letting it be a spiritual rudder for their daily lives, it becomes all-Christian-all-the-time. It becomes an incessant need to pick every facet of everything to pieces, railing against anything with even a hint of anti-Christian meaning.

    And what does that do? It runs people off that are looking at their faith and wanting to find a spiritual meaning to their life through Christ. Then, the soulless media feeds that perception, constantly, by letting these types represent Christianity altogether. In fact, Christian churches do more good and provide more charity than any organization in the world.....by a mile.

    When you meet a truly grounded devout Christian, they have a positive effect on you. They don't preach to you, they don't even bring it up unless you ask. They carry themselves and live their lives in a way that draws you to them and makes you want to emulate them in ways that may or may not have anything to do with their faith. Then, when you learn how important their faith is to them, you naturally want to learn more about it.

    Glen Beck is the other type. He's a recovering alcholic and drug addict with a massive propensity for the dramatic. He gets a wild stare in his eye, which is a product of his emotional instability. Now, a lot of what he says is true, but he just can't settle for the truth, he has to take it to absurd levels too often. That's what people like him do.

    He's not a bad person. He's just too much to take in large doses.
    I agree... Beck, Palin, and their like make me hate Christians sometimes until I meet a decent one, then I go... ohh hey, you're not all that bad after all.

    ERod, I don't agree with you on much, but in this instance you are right on the mark. Well said!

    I think several commentaters, Beck, Hannity, Rush probably have remarked on it. However I am capable of watching the coverage on TV and seeing the difference in the way the Japanese are acting as opposed to those who were in Haiti and Katrina for example.
    We'll see if their actions change if they get really desperate for food, water, gas, warmth etc. but I somehow doubt they will turn barbaric.
