“It Appears My Hypocrisy Knows No Bounds” ~Doc Holliday February 24, 2010

I know, I know, we see hypocrisy in our government on a daily basis, but considering what’s going on right now, this is particularly interesting. The words of the Democrats were correct in 2005, just as they are correct in 2010. It’s funny how things change once you’re the one in power. And, before you start leaving me some nasty comments, yes, I am FULLY aware of the fact that the Republicans do the exact same thing. And, that is exactly my point. The (R) and the (D) don’t matter! All but perhaps 5% of those in our government are corrupt, power-hungry crooks.

Yesterday “someone” asked on their radio program the following question: If the ballot did not provide an (R) or a (D) after the candidate’s name, what would you do? Would you know how to vote? I thought I knew how I’d respond to this proposed scenario, but when I seriously considered it, I had something of an epiphany. While I consider myself a right-leaning Independent or Libertarian, I realized that I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t know what party the candidate claimed. I thought I knew the (R) and (D) didn’t matter, but I didn’t. I am usually pretty well-informed when I vote, but once in a while there will be a contest of which I’m unaware and I’m really not sure who to vote for. This is when I pay attention to party. Now I truly see how wrong that is. Because, again, the (R) and (D) DON’T MATTER! What matters is their record and their principles.

I’m sure there is another video or two (or hundred) out there showing the Republicans being complete hypocrites, but I don’t need to see it. I’m sure once the Republicans gain back their precious power there will be another video compiling all of their current duplicitous comments. Oh, I can’t wait. *Sigh*

That’s all.

Another Beck Homerun February 21, 2010

I really don’t have the time (or the willpower) to write a bunch right now, but I had to post Glenn Beck’s speech from CPAC. As always, Beck hit it out of the park. I wasn’t really sure whether he was going to be booed or cheered, since I knew he’d be bashing both sides. Most of these guys don’t like their faults pointed out to them, as you should know. He was very well-received, receiving several standing ovations. He’s such a great speaker, not only because he can deliver the message well, but mostly because you can feel his sincerity bursting through. He means what he says and he’s not doing it for attention. Whether you agree with the things he says or not (I don’t agree with everything, either, you know), you cannot doubt his sincerity. He believes what he’s saying and he is genuinely concerned for the state of the republic. And, for this, Beck will always earn my respect, which is more than I can say for those in Washington. Kudos, Mr. Beck!

That’s all.

 

Time to be Heard January 17, 2010

I just got around to watching this today and I really enjoyed it, so I thought I’d share. Yes, it’s in four parts. It’s a little long, but I promise you, it is worth watching. Honestly, I’m too used to seeing black Americans blindly following the left. I know people like this exist, I just don’t see it often enough. I would love for Beck to do a show like this at least once a month.

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsBpUZjGvGk

The video speaks for itself.

Different Look at Chicago Teen Beating Death October 3, 2009

Filed under: Glenn Beck — lissatz @ 2:09 pm
 
 
Look, I’m a total white girl raised in the suburbs so I won’t proclaim to understand where poor black Americans are coming from. These videos are very interesting, nonetheless. Beck only shows a small portion of the video of that honor student in Chicago being beaten to death, but what I did see made me literally gasp. It’s one thing to hear about a kid being beaten to death, but to actually see it is a totally different story. Ugh – that poor kid! I can’t even think of anything more to say, it’s just such a travesty.
 
That’s all.
 

Boycott Additions & Subtractions August 31, 2009

Filed under: Boycott,Glenn Beck,Politics — lissatz @ 5:54 pm

 

Additions to my boycott: Sprint, NutriSystem, and General Mills

One subtraction: Roche (drug company that makes Accu-Check)

I’ve got to say, the General Mills one is gonna hurt. I LOVE cereal – especially General Mills brand cereals. I buy about 5 boxes of cereal per trip. I wrote them and told them as much and that I would be telling all my friends and family to join me. This is going to kill me, but I HAVE to stick to my principles! 😦

That’s all.

 

Question Boldly . . .

Last week, Glenn Beck did some very interesting shows. Of course, the left wing bloggers and media are busy attacking him personally, as well as the method in which he delivers his message. However, they don’t seem to be attacking the actual message, ya know, like the FACTS. It’s very easy to discredit the message by discrediting the messenger. That’s a tried and true tactic.

Here is the error the White House contacted the Glenn Beck Show on during his program: They aren’t “czars”, they’re called “special advisors”.

Here is the error the left-wing bloggers are discussing: On Thursday’s show, he took his “talking points” and linked them to the word “oligarchy” – EXCEPT he missed the letter ‘c’. A stupid mistake? Absolutely. A mistake worthy of making a big deal about considering everything else Beck has come out with? Absolutely not. I think there might have been one more thing they complained about, but I can’t remember what it was at the moment – either way, it was nothing important.

Today the Huffington Post tried refuting a few of the things Beck has said, but they really don’t matter because on Beck’s radio show he rebutted every single point. I’ve been trying to find the transcript online, but haven’t been successful. If/when I find it, I will post it. It was humorous because she would refer to something Van Jones has said or written and Beck would then quote directly from it something that actually supported his original claim.

I watched every TV and radio show. He was pretty much just been presenting facts and asking questions – REASONABLE questions. He offered his conclusions, but literally begged anyone to prove him wrong because he really doesn’t want to believe these things. So, please don’t take what you hear at face value. You always have to do your own research. I’m a complete nerd, so I’ve written notes on all his TV shows this week and I’m going to research everything he said. Once I can confirm the information, I will post it.

That’s all.

 

If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all. ~Noam Chomsky August 24, 2009

I really need to get to bed, but I need to share this first. There are some far-left nutcases out there (aka The Huffington Post, etc.) trying to shut down Glenn Beck by swarming his advertisers, trying to get them to pull their ads from his show. The Huffington Post claims they’ve gotten more companies to agree to it than will admit it, so who really knows who is telling the truth here. There’s a website (not associated with Glenn Beck himself) trying to defend him and trying to get these advertisers to change their minds (www.defendglenn.com). They list companies who have confirmed that they’ve pulled their ads from Becks show and those who are under “suspicion”, but deny the change. I am personally boycotting all companies who have confirmed the change in advertising and I’ve begun to write each of them. (I already switched my prescriptions over to Safeway from CVS.) I urge you to do the same. Of course, it’s your decision.

Why are these people going after Beck? I’m not really sure. Personally, I think they don’t like that he’s on to their game. Think about it, if someone’s just an idiot whose opinion doesn’t matter, don’t you just brush them off and ignore them? But, if someone is on to you and threatens you’re livelihood, isn’t that when you take a stand? You can brush Beck off if you like, but I think he’s sniffing them out and they don’t like it. It’s very easy to take little snippets here and there of what someone says, pull them out of context, etc. and make them look like a complete bafoon. I personally watch every show and listen to every broadcast. I liken his shows to a soap opera rather than a 30-minute sitcom, in that you can’t just watch or listen to one show and fully understand what’s going on. Everything is not wrapped up in a neat little package by the end. You really need to watch/listen to it on a regular basis to “get” the method behind the madness. I completely understand if someone just flat out disagrees with Beck’s view on the world. That is completely legitimate. But to take bits and pieces of what he says/does and think that you know where he’s coming from or what he is trying to say, is ludicrous. He just doesn’t work that way.

This isn’t even about Beck. This is about free speech. You can hate Beck all you want, but if you truly believe in free speech, you must defend his right to say whatever he wishes. There are plenty of  so-called “liberal talkers” out there whom I cannot stand! (Actually, I don’t even like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity gets on my nerves, too.) I mean, they literally make me nauseous (Randi Rhodes, Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, etc., for instance). However, I would never, nor have I ever, even thought about boycotting their advertisers or trying to get their advertisers to pull from their shows. All I do is turn the dial. I may disagree with most of what they say – I might even say they are liars – but I absolutely defend their right to say it!

Finally, it’s actually rather silly for these companies to “boycott” Glenn Beck, as his ratings are insane. His radio show is #3 in the nation, behind only Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. His television show, which is in the worst time slot ever (5 p.m. Eastern, 2 p.m. Pacific) has crazy ratings:
