So like your sister, a wonderful person I am sure...the niece believed a least in THIS ONE event and that it was positive and apparently one that her uncle would approve of. Id have to go with that endorsement than with the questioning of the OPP...even though he IS apparently Beck obsessed.
    She was great. I hope we get to see more of her. She seems like she has a huge heart. Her family has known violence similar to the Kennedy's, yet she hasn't lost her faith.

    You sure it doesn't remind you of how you felt when you first layed eyes on the president?

    The public reaction to Beck, Palin and Obama are pretty damned similar -- mainly because all three are in the same line of work. They differ only in their market share.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Alas Im not truely sure WHAT would be on Becks board. Im just soooooooooo tired of this shill performer. The guy seems to be well liked and able to pull off what the republican party needs and that is misdirection. Get the Tea Party to believe he is not with the republican party.... but lead the masses TO the republican party. Maybe I notice this because of my 15+ years of corporate sales and strategy. Anyhow its marketing genius. Karl Rove is a marketing master.
    It is pretty amazing huh? I think part of it is his ADD. He jumps from one project to the next, but unlike most people with ADD, he usually finishes what he starts.
    Anyway, we are getting closer and closer to taking over the Republican party with real conservatives.

    So, you're saying that Beck would support King's Army of the Poor? You think that Beck would agree that the "US has been on the wrong side of many revolutions of the poor"?

    You think Beck would agree with Dr. King's assessment that poverty is because of the system we've established?

    If you think Beck would agree with those things, then okay. Something tells me that he would not. It sort of goes against the whole system of "personal responsibility" that seems to be at the base of the conservative movement. My guess is that Beck would probably be on the side of those calling him a Communist, considering that in his later speeches, King specifically called for the redistribution of wealth as a means of ending poverty.

    You do mean the rights reaction to Sarah and Glenn and the lefts reaction to the president are similar?
    Obama has no love of country just like the left.
    Sarah and Glenn love this country as does the right.
    Sarah and Glenn are trying to unite the country.
    The president has been the biggest divider in history.

    I'll tell you what *I* think and it might be close to what Beck thinks. I don't know his heart.
    I think MLK had the right things in mind at the time. That was then this is now. It didn't work. Many blacks are still suffering.
    I think Al Sharpton and civil rights leaders today are doing nothing but keeping black people down. They don't need hand outs they need hands up. They need to stop playing the victims and treating white people as oppressors. They are our equals and they should act as such. They are getting no where voting for democrats all the time. They need to try something different if they truly want to succeed. If they come over to the conservative side, they will wonder why they didn't try it sooner. just sayin..

    Why should people like revrend Al change? 40 years of sensationalizing racism and endorsing policies that have destroyed the black community may not have done much FOR the black families and communities but its done WONDERS for Al, and the democrat party.

    Yeah, like I said, different market shares.

    If you really believe that, then I don't even know why we're talking.

    No, they're all pretty much dividing and manipulating the nation, using very similar tactics.
