I probably am, too ... much there’s too much MESSAGE sometimes.

I tend to think that simpler is better.

The bottom line is that the socialists are making their move. We all know this. Some of them are even out of the closet. It has gone from, “It’s not SOCIALISM!” To “Socialism’s not that bad ... read some Marx.”

“If you don’t want socialism...DON’T drive on the roads! If you get Social Security you are a SOCIALIST!”

We never got any quotes but it was pretty clear that they wanted Glenn fired and Ailes stood up to him.

From Samantha Power's Power ...

in 2007, while Power was advising Obama’s presidential campaign. A 2007 piece by Power in The New York Times Book Review attacked the phrase “War on Terror,” which of course the Obama administration has since dropped.

I saw a disturbing story today from the Italian island of Lampedusa. Seems that there are more Tunisian and Lybian refugees than Italians and now the “refugees” have burned a church.

I will make a prediction. Obama’s with Rev Sharpton today. The Chicago mayoral race already talked about it.

Get ready for Obama to advocate for slavery reparations.

Unfortunately, the “left” has a very complex attack on America and their plan to fundamentally transform America has been put into place.

If the message is simple, than it’s only scratching the surface and giving cover to what’s happening. We need to have our eyes opened to what is happening to our country and by whom.

Maybe it seems like there’s too much message because we’ve got a lot of catching up to do. We’ve been naive to what’s been a long time coming here. They’ve counted on it to get the job (transformation of America) done.

Glenn has exposed the tangled web of players - it’s not enough to just attack the concept of “socialism” now. That’s like throwing punches in the dark.

The Gaza blockade was mandated by the UN. Funny how the left doesn’t care about the UN when their mandates don’t work in their favor.

Interestingly enough, Egypt “was” helping to enforce it.

It may seem overwhelmiing sometimes BUT in these shows, Glenn exposes the players - they never thought their actual words and actions would be out there in this fashion.

Maybe it’s a two edged sword - for our education, but more so to warn the players and take a little power out of their sails. They’ve had pretty much a free ride to what they’ve wanted with no examination by the MSM.

Interesting. I’ll say this - the only thing I watch on Fox is early morning and Beck. I never go to Fox’s website but I subscribe to Beck’s Insider Extreme. What will Brett’s 6pm ratings be like without Beck’s lead-in? Sometimes I keep Brett on just because he follows Beck. But I won’t turn on Fox at 6pm on purpose.

Somethings cooking. Beck set free may be the lefts worst nightmare.

Fox wants to make money. And even Murdoch isn’t going to fire a ratings superstar just to appease a woman.

Its got to make them awfully nervous when tapes are smuggled out of private meetings and shows up on Glenn’s show.

Most likely O’Reilly told Ailes that Beck was too big for his britches.

“Roger Ailes dropped by Fox’s Washington bureau Wednesday to give his staff a pep talk before the annual Radio and Television Correspondents’ dinner, mediabistro.com reports.

The topic of conversation quickly turned to conservative commentator Glenn Beck, whose hyper-opinionated commentary is a ratings boon for Fox — but also a recently revealed source of tension for the network’s other journalists.

A column in the Washington Post on Monday revealed that some Fox staffers are concerned the celebrity pundit is “becoming the face of the network.”

Another poster once suggested shutting down all public schools; tearing the buildings down; bulldozing the rubble; and salting the earth where the building once stood, so that nothing could rise in its place.

Sounds like a plan...

Understand that I have been a fan of Beck. I have read some of his books. I am simply making an observation.

I agree with you that he has exposed some people and brought forth a great deal of important information ...

I am merely saying that, of late, he seems to tackle too much at once on the show and it makes it more difficult to digest and understand.

“It is not clear what the programs will be, or how many of them there will be. Joel Cheatwood, a senior Fox News executive who Beck hired away to his own company, will serve as the main liaison between the two networks.”

I’ve resisted it but after reading the “We Are One” Teacher’s toolkit I’ve changed my mind.

Its time to strip public funding from schools and universities. Families need to go back to the beginnings and start teaching children in their homes. If that means a few families hiring a teacher to teach several children so be it.

My great grandmother went to a one room school near Mancelona Michigan in the early 1900s. Just like on Little house on the prairie, the school was also the church. It received no taxpayer dollars and she walked away in the 9th grade better educated than most college students today.

She learned to speak latin in that little country school.

Beck, as you know, has been trying to for the most part of the past several months expose all the people wanting to destroy the country.

As such he has come to realize they are not all one and the same. So he says there are three groups of people. Islamic groups wanting Caliphate, globalist United Nations wanting a open one new world order government and basically Obama and friends in the leftists media and politics aiming for communism.

It’s heavy stuff and stuff that some just can’t grasp. And gets confusing to follow. But its the truth. As such It can get all over the place,

I agree with you cripplecreek. There is something bigger planned. Glen is also hiring Joel Cheatwood. He is an Executive Producer and I think that is genious. Fox and Glen are going to collaborate in future on something big. Mecury Arts is going to be huge!

Well, as sad as I am to see the GB FNC show come to an end, I am confident that Glenn will remain a great influence and source of invaluable information, by the clues he gave us today. Glenn's love for America and our liberties and freedoms is obvious.

God speed, Glenn Beck. May He continue to bless and protect you and yours.

Yup. Of course, there were a lot of differences, but it can be done. Unfortunately I don’t think you can walk back from where we are. The system has real problems, but so does the culture. It’s like trying to make a good product when the factory is bad AND the raw material is bad, and the templates are bad.
The real problem is that everyone wants schools to do what they should not. They want them to educate kids (not the major function by any means anymore)/ provide daycare/ provide jobs for adults/ and other things. Schools did a good job when the only real thing they were expected to do was teach kids. Anything else was gravy.

I wonder if he left a clue in his analogy to Paul Revere? He said something like, "Even Paul Revere got off his horse and fought in the Revolutionary War, before going back to being a silversmith."

Hmmm...

I don’t know about everywhere, or what years you’re talking about, but a little google searching seems to say that the average salary of teachers around 1910 (all I could really find) suggests that they were close to the same as for other jobs. I admit that surprised me.

Teacher pay of the day was probably pretty closely related to where they taught. 1900s northern Michigan was probably not a cash rich place. My grandmother grew up on a farm like nearly everyone else they knew.

I wondered if there was also a jump from 1900 to 1910 maybe. And yes, I suspect it depended greatly on where it was, because I’m pretty sure the local town contracted the teacher and decided what they would pay, or what arrangements they would make.

Interesting take. Hope you are right. My first thought was his health issues but doesn’t seem to be a factor if he is growing his company. Fox doesn’t seem upset Beck is hiring away a top guy.

Just so Soros doesn’t plan an arbitrary takeover of FOX News! This announcement coming on the tail of perhaps personal threats against Beck makes one wonder.
Incidentally, I would like to see more of Brit Hume scheduled.
