    Glenn Beck in a far right wing propagandist who doesn't know shit about anything. All he does is try to stir his crazy followers into a frenzy,and lately,has been advocating some sort of revolution against Obama. He's also a huge boozer,who probably drinks his weight in booze everyday. He's certifiable.

    A tea party and a revolt are different things, and the tea parties are not just about Obama. The Tea Parties are about the bailouts and the way the gov't is spending like there is no tommorrow. The Tea Parties themselves involve some posters and people throwing tea into a lake. Hardly a dangerous revolt.

    The gov is spending like no tomorrow because it HAS to, thanks to the retardation of the previous administration.

    If they don't spend, the US slides into depression and national bankruptcy.

    They could be spending BETTER, however.

    They could. And some of the people at the Tea Parties are upset that Obama complains about the debt he inherited, then turns around and spends more. If he is upset about the debt, he should stop spending period, and find a way to make some cuts in areas that need it.

    ^ that completely ignores the situation at hand.

    Without spending to prop up vast institutions, they fail and the US economy DIES. On the table. Collapses. Anarchy. The rest of the world follows right after.

    He has to prop them up, and reinvest in the country. Jobs cost money to make, but return the investment 5 fold. It just takes time.

    Herbert Hoover tried balancing the budget instead of stimulating the economy and it sent the country into a Great Depression. With the economy tanking you have to spend money, and incur some short-term debt, to stimulate the economy to try and pay down the long-term debt.

    FDR had to spend massive amounts of money. Including defense spending, which is why WW2 helped to pull the country out of the Great Depression. That defense spending created jobs, just like the highway programs, and that helped to stimulate the economy. You can't pay down massive debt by just making cuts and not spending any money. You have to do both.

    The last issue!
    Farewell, Glenn Beck, poet!

    Oh, woeful day. The scintillating verse of the new Fox News bard must now fade into the Orange County sunset.
    By Hart Seely and Tom Peyer
    Editor's note: The following poems are transcribed verbatim from Beck's broadcasts. Collect 'em all! Here and here.

    BOTTOM

    You know what; I speak from experience.
    Alcoholic. Alcoholic. Just drinking Jack Daniel's
    Like crazy until, you know, you're just like,

    "Is that vomit on my face?"

    So then I know what it's like to hit bottom.
    These people in Washington.
    They never hit bottom.

    WHAT I COULD HAVE SAID

    If I would have said a year ago that we were going to
    Lose over 50 percent of the value of the stock market,
    People would have said I was crazy.
    If I would have said when Citibank was, I don't even know,
    Trading at $50 a share, hey, Citibank is going to be under
    A dollar in the next year, they would have said I was crazy.
    If I would have said we're going to have a president elected,
    And he is going to bring us to the verge of shredding
    The Constitution, of massive socialism, and he'll do it in
    The first six weeks in office, I would have been told I was crazy.

    But now people still are saying oh come on.

    ACCIDENT

    You know what, I don't know when it became un-American
    To say, save for a rainy day, or you know
    Why don't you just -- why don't we just
    Prepare for the worst and hope for the best
    Or make sure you're wearing clean underpants
    In case you're in an accident
    But that's a different story.

    FORGOTTEN MAN

    At first, the idea of the Forgotten Man was
    The little orphan that was in the middle here and
    Everybody forgot that, and government and
    The businessman was happy and
    Playing the role of government is Jesus because
    I think that's who we have as president now, and so ...
    What would happen is this guy would be happy and
    This guy would be happy, but the little orphan
    Was left out, but now the Forgotten Man; help me out on this;
    Now the Forgotten Man, Jesus, decides that he
    Is going to help out the little orphan person; so ...

    You, no longer wearing the top hat and no longer happy,
    And of course, the little orphan boy now has a crack pipe and
    Octomom is back here with her tentacles; OK,
    There's Octomom; Jesus decides to take the money from you
    Now, and then he gives it to Octomom.

    SUGAR

    It's been a week where I've given up all sugar; I'm trying
    To lose weight, it's the war on chins and I haven't
    Had sugar in a week, I get a little nasty and cranky
    When I haven't had sugar; it's not right, it's not.
    I haven't lost a pound in a whole week; I haven't had any sugar.

    AMAZED

    I'm amazed at the argument that you can't amend
    The Constitution, you can't change the Constitution;
    That what our founders designed. Isn't this -- maybe I'm wrong.

    I have never heard of the people's representative,
    The people that -- if a guy is supposed to uphold the laws
    That the people pass goes to the Supreme Court and says,

    I know I'm the chief guy, I'm the attorney general,
    I'm the chief guy to uphold the law, and the people said
    This is the law, but the people can't do that.

    Has this ever happened before?

    TO A LOVER

    I want to, I want to say
    I want to say to you
    That you have been
    Unbelievably gracious to me;
    And you have no reason to be.

    I like the little cookies, too, but the shortbread ones are a pain to make, if you put even more than a drop more oil than necessary in the recipe, the darn things crumble into paste. Annoying.

    My shortbread recipe. One pound of butter, 3/4 cup superfine sugar and 4 -5 cups of flour. NO oil! Bake at 300 until light light brown.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.
