    Re: Will you be protesting the Restoring Honor Rally in D.C. on 8/28?

    I'm curious as to why a rally honoring our military personnel is called "restoring" honor. Does Beck believe that our military forces have somehow misplaced their honor under a rock in Afghanistan?

    I mean, if this was TRULY a benefit for these kids, their names would be front and center, rather than the somewhat dubious and muddled theme of "restoring" honor that, IMHO, has never been lost.

    Okay....? You don't trust that they actually give the money to whom they say it's going to? So you disbelieve the people who say they have been helped by SOWF?

    I think that the issue is that the charitable purposes for this event are running a distant second to the political motivations. Was that too subtle?

    What are the political motivations?

    What do YOU think the goal of this rally is?

    Yes. Glenn and Jon Huntsman are very good friends.

    The very charitable Billionaire. He once went belly up and took out a loan to meet his obligations to charities he had promised money to.

    To be at someone else's "Beck" and call.

    He says jump, and his followers ask how high.

    It's pathetic really. Protestors aren't even taking their own reasoning into this event, just what they've been fed.

    I really wish people would learn to think for themselves.

    I have read the SOWF website, looks to be creditable.
    Still, I am a cynic about these things..

    I'm not sure. I have these questions:
