    Wait, my memory is actually failing me. I don't remember that. Am I wrong?
    Wait a minute, do you mean Iraq War protests? That would be different than protesting the military. I don't oppose the military.

    I was unaware that our armed forces needed to have honor restored, and by Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, of all people. I thought our military forces were already amongst the most honorable on earth.

    But that's just me...hopelessly patriotic and a fan of the Navy.

    Whose protesting the military now? You were making the statement it seemed that protests/rallies concerning the military (Such as anti-war protests, pro-war rallies, etc) are suggesting those people do'nt think "our troops deserve our undivided attention while at war?"

    Which is funny, because you're suggesting that doing a protest that...perhaps even partisan in nature...is supposed to be in part about supporting the troops and is donating money to troops is enough to chastise someone about apparently not giving our troops our undivided attention while at war, and yet I never once can remember you chastising anti-war protestors in a similar way for their actions regarding the military.

    The people who created and are supporting this event are definitely self-serving morons who deserve to be mocked. Just saying. But then, I've never thought any purpose was served by sugar-coating our real problems, as a country.

    You could say this about any politician or used car salesman. But we are talking about Beck.

Or I'm going to be like Abraham Lincoln and George Washington".


    Essentially switching into a form of writing where he's speaking what the person should be speaking.
    Yes, the spoken word's intent can get lost in print. Whoever transcribed this should have put that line in quotes if that was the intent of that line.

    What game is he referring to anyway?

    Old Harry Callahan is asking if he, Harry Callahan, feels lucky.

    But we all know that's not the case, he's asking if the guy he's about to shoot feels lucky by using a form of speaking where he's essentially asking the question in the first person for the individual.

    Much like Beck was doing, which was clear in the context where the entire paragraph is him talking to people about what THEY'RE going to do.
    He didn't say, "You have to ask yourself one question."

    The good thing is that this is being led by Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, so we can be sure it won't be partisan. Their main goal is to support the troops.

    This is my basic opinion. The charity looks fine, the event is full of people I don't care about. I predict no trouble ignoring it.
