    Restoring Honor - 8.28.10
    Well I agree with the principle. However, the people involved make me think this is nothing more than another partisan rally thing to bitch about crap the other side wouldn't fix anyway.

    I don't know, I don't think I stomach the twerp that much to find out. No, I don't believe MLK was a Communist. He was against the war in Vietnam, does that make him a Communist?
    I believe Obama is definitely a Socialist in his personal philosophies. He cannot, however, do everything he wants because Congress and the American people hold him back. I'm not entirely convinced that he's a Communist, per se. I'm concerned about his choices for pastors, friends, employees since many of them have been proven to be Socialists and/or Communist and/or anti-capitalism.

    Did anyone happen to watch Olbermann last night.
    His lead in was Beck would not be having his rally after all. That he forgot to get a permit!
    Of cource that turned out to be untrue. He also said things like he'll be giving hate speech from where MLK spoke. He kept calling it a protest blah blah blah and really wishing the permit would not be granted. Accusing Glenn of ripping off the charity. Just his usual hateful self.
    Anyway the point I wanted to make was, apparently there are no plans for a counter protest. They are planning a jobs march in Oct. Several left wing groups were mentioned along with SEIU.
    My thoughts are, gee I wonder which get together will be the most productive. Glenn's peaceful rally bringing people together promoting hope faith and charity with proceeds going to our troops. Or their march for jobs. Hec, if all we have to do to solve the unemployment is to march, I'll join the left for a day. We can make it a bi-partisan event.

    Please. Obama isn't a socialist in the strict sense of the word. He is a standard politician, the likes we see in both the Republicans and Democrats. He's looking only to expand federal power against the States and the People; the same as Bush before him. You can make charges of fascism since everything is being defined through the federal government, but socialist? If so I don't think he would have taken all our money and given it to the rich banks who drove us into temporary economic collapse. That's support of the aristocracy, and something decidedly un-socialist.

    I saw it, Barb. His lead was a blatant lie. He said "Beck forgot to get the permit!!!" Completely untrue. Nice "news" network there. Maybe that's why his ratings SUCK. I did hear him say it would be "hate speech". LOL! Does he even know what's going to be happening? He's just a big ole idiot, that Keith Olbermann. He needs a t-shirt that says that.

    I can understand how people feel that way especially because it is Beck and Palin. However he is pretty adament about it not being a political event. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    Perhaps, but with any of those political entertainers, I don't put much faith in these events being anything more than partisan grandstanding.

    LOL You too torture youself with MSNBC? What is wrong with us??? I'm already on blood pressure meds. Probably will have to up my dosage soon.
    You know something that bothers me? We are willing to watch, listen to those we vehemently disagree with while most liberals hate people like Rush, Glenn etc. just because and won't take the time to listen.

    Restoring Honor - 8.28.10
    At the bottom of this website:

    All contributions made to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) will first be applied to the costs of the Restoring Honor Rally taking place on August 28, 2010. All contributions in excess of these costs will then be retained by the SOWF.
    So, will SOWF get any the proceeds?

    I think a good option for the poll would have been "I don't care, this whole thing is a farce"
