    I watched it. I couldn't stop looking at it. It was like watching a blind girl fall into a ditch..I know it was wrong but I just HAD to see it.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    I watched it. I had little problem with the message... it was history intensive and God intensive, though it was also Christianity intensive. Not very inclusive. They had a Rabbi, maybe a few, standing on stage from time to time, but I only caught one mention of a Mosque and another mention of people's "place of worship". And no mention of other religions. But I can imagine the event would be pretty motivating for some.

    God was a major focus of the event, but it was still heavily leaning toward Christianity with many mentions of churches, Jesus and the bible. I'm not sure if I am surprised or not. I didn't know what to expect when beginning the video, but I wasn't expecting it to be nearly exclusively Christian.

    MLK was mentioned numerous times throughout the event.

    One thing I was expecting is more honor put towards our troops, though only about 20-30 minutes were spent on that topic.

This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." —John Adams

    I tuned in after Sarah Palin's speech but in time to be bored by Glenn Beck.
