    What's funny to me is on one hand this is an innocent charity event yet the name of the event is charged with partisanship. Your explanation of the name says it all.
    You lost me. How is the name Restoring Honor somehow partisan? Glenn clearly states on his website that this is a non-partisan rally. On his radio show I've heard him say it is a non political rally and not a tea party. He says bring your kids and leave your signs behind. I realize he'll probably have very few liberals there. They have too much hate for him in their hearts but at least he is trying to bring people together for a good cause.

    I tend to agree with you. I think they'll look pretty foolish protesting honesty and integrity and honoring our troops.

    Agreed, Barb. Just like they made fun of the 9/12 movement when it was all about bringing us back together like we were the day after 9/11. We were UNITED then. We were flying our flags proudly and shaking our fist at our enemies. Too soon we were back to bickering about trivial things, putting our flags away and patting our enemies on the head.

    The 9 principles and 12 values aren't political at all. They're about our character.

    My vote was a mess up. I meant to vote "No. I wish I could go!" I support what is going on, but I can't make it... Or maybe I can if I stay with family up in that area. I would love to go.

    We must do two things. And really it's just this one. Remember, remember who we are. If we remember who we are, where we came from, why we came here, who let us, who wrote those documents, why did they write them, if we remember the mistakes we've made, and we made a lot, but I ain't going on a European apology tour for it. Every country has made mistakes, some bigger than others. I think in the balance we've been pretty good. But if we remember our mistakes, we'll be able to fix them. So remember.

    And what happens when we remember? Well, if we remember, then we have to choose. And here comes the second part. Then we have to choose. Are we going to be part of the solution or part of the problem? And really honestly the problem is two can play at that game. The solution is to just always tell the truth. I announced on that same stage that I was going to be holding an event, and I didn't tell you much about it. On August 28th, this coming August 28th, I told you it would be at the mall in Washington. A lot of people are going to think that this is a tea party. It is not. I hope it will be something much, much deeper than a tea party. I believe what we are creating is going to be something that will be one for the history books. There is not going to be one word of politics from the stage, not one. Because the way to fix Washington is not through politics but through each of us as individuals. Because when we fix ourselves and we are united on the principle of honor and honesty and integrity, they will fear us like they've never feared us before. Why can somebody go to Washington that you think is so strong and then all of a sudden turn? All of a sudden they become part of the problem? Well, I think it's because they've lost their honor. They may have lost their honor before they even got there. And when they lost that honor, when they cheated on their wife or they embezzled or they took this deal or they compromised here, whatever it is, that's when they become a tool. That's why I ask you to join me at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on 8/28 in a program called Restoring Honor. The feet of Abraham Lincoln. I'm reading a book right now called Giants. It's fantastic. It's the things that Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln had in common. Amazing men. But you don't have to solve Washington. The tea parties have the backdrop of the capitol. The capitol could go into a giant sinkhole as far as I'm concerned. Doesn't matter to me. You are not going to be able to go in there and fix that, unless you start at the other end of the mall and you start by looking and reflecting at Abraham Lincoln. And then you look and reflect. That's what the reflecting pool means. Reflect. You look one way and you are looking at Abraham Lincoln and you can reflect on him. You look the other way and you see the Washington Monument and everything that Washington stood for and you reflect on him. Once you do that and then make your choice, two can play that game. Or I'm going to be like Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. When you do that, you'll fix the country. I'm convinced of it. Education, reflection and higher choices. I can't tell you who or what is going to be on the program at this point for a myriad of reasons. But just know we want to be there. It is going to be amazing.

    He's hard to read with the run-on sentences and the speaking in phrases like Adam West as Batman or William Shatner as Captain Kirk.

    He made no mention of the troops. He mad no mention of Freedom of Speech.

    He thinks this protest could be monumental and mail won't be delivered for his birthday like Washington and Lincoln.

    Wow, I can't believe he really said that.

    Glenn Beck/Sarah Palin and Honor go together like...... actually they make no sense together.

    These clowns talking about restoring honor is akin to Charles Manson talking about righteousness.

    That's why he was talking about how we vote for the guy we think has honor and then it vanishes once he gets to Washington. That's why the rally is at Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. That's why he is dreaming about being compared to Lincoln and Washington. It's because it's not political, right?

    How many is he having on stage?

    I don't hate him. He makes me laugh. I hope this helps raise money for the SOWF.
