To the headline - yea duh!
Its gotten very off-putting and boring.
If only you were right!!! You have been listening to a different Glenn Beck. The one I listened to this morning was jinoistic on the Mosque issue. He despises Ron Paul and it shows. Glenn Beck is out for Glenn Beck. Period.
The namecalling is SURE to help! < /sarc >
The world of the dyed-in-the-wool Free Republic conservative continues to shrink.
This past weekend I was listening to a financial show and the host brought up Beck and his recent discussion of something called the “hindenberg omen”.
Beck was talking about in this apocalypse like tone saying how it’s correctly predicted every market crash since 1985. He also made it sound as if it was his big idea.
What he left out was that it has incorrectly predicted lots of other crashes that never happened.
He never correctly attributed it to the two people that came up with it.
There were a number of other things the host pointed out as well. This has made me question Beck from now on.
A couple of weeks ago I heard him say “The wrong thing to do is to put the Republicans back in power”. My jaw dropped. The two things I do like about the show is Founders Friday's because I like American history, and the cute dark haired girl that does the Wall Street Journal update at the end of each show.
“His carping on slavery is nonsense.
No, it’s based on the truth. And America needs a dose of truth; especially the masses who’ve not been educated in history for some decades.”
LOOK I have had this Chit shoved in my face all my life AND I OWE NOBODY nothing NOT a damn thing ! The Rioting ,The busing,the destroyed neighborhoods,trillions down the Rat hole Enough!! I DO NOT CARE ANYMORE!
AAAAARRRARGAHHHHHH! I can’t take it anymore! AAAAARRRARGAHHHHHH!
I'm quite sure that he did NOT mean to leave the RATs in power! The Republicans "as is" have pretty much morphed into RAT lite anyway.
I used to like Beck but he is all over the place. He became pals with O”reilly when he went to Fox and I no longer trust him. O’Reilly is a weasel and is not a conservative. They both made fun of birthers for their Saudi shareholder bosses at Fox.
Unless you were familiar with Beck’s radio program all through the first decade of 2000, you would not be surprised with the way it is today. He is an entertainer, first and foremost.
Much ado about nothing.
Same for my wife. I don’t watch him except occasionally. But she does whenever she has a day off. She’s learned a lot, and for that I appreciate what he’s doing. Because she’s not the only one. But, I’m well grounded in American History and don’t need it. But I can say he’s right on on what he’s teaching...
I basically agree with you. I used to listen to conservative talk radio all the time. Now I get maybe half an hour a week.
Two reasons: REPETITIVE. And some of them are too angry.
I am not a stupid person and I don’t need the same story told a hundred times over and over again with little change in so much as the nuance.
And I often feel like they are trying to whip me up into some sort of anger all the time. Anger has its place but I don’t care to walk around furious all day. It doesn’t accomplish anything.
Give me the news, give me the opinions, give me some decent humor, give me some solutions, make it intelligent and entertaining.
Rush is probably still my favorite, although he is not as funny as he once was. I’d like Dennis Miller if he was obtainable around here.
We are going to need all the help we can get. Dont divide, unify.
Yup.... I keep telling people we will NEVER agree 100% on what everyone thinks...even those that think alike. My motto is... are the ideals, morals and outcome the same? Yup... We want freedom, smaller government and the truth. You ain't gonna' get that anywhere else but Fox, some online news sites, talk radio and of course... God! We are divided as it is, we don't need to be divided amongst ourselves!!
Funny. I found the original post to be ignorant and idiotic.
