    Both the professor and officer were equally stupid in that situation.

    Gates was arrested for disorderly conduct. What do you think he did to be charged with that? Had the cops just left when he said he lived there & gone upstairs to find an intruder who beat the sheiza out of him & robbed him then the cops could have been accused of stupidity and you can bet they would have been racists then. These guys were doing their job and to have Obama not at least give them the benefit of the doubt until he learns the facts is reprehensible. Had this been a prominent white man & white cops, it would have gathered no attention. Was the attention this received racially motivated? You bet. Gates better hope they act just as stupidly if he ever does get robbed, is home when it happens and his neighbor calls in.

    Ok.

    I didn't know who Beck was until he started on Fox after Christmas. I watched his first couple of shows, and was not impressed. He at first came across as a self-important blowhard.

    I just started watching him again in the last few weeks, and other than being a bit dramatic, I found his argument & questions compelling.
    Most of what he has done (in the recent shows I've seen), is ask questions. As he points out, instead of receiving answers, he is called names. When he makes statements, his "facts", no one is refuting them.

    He raises questions I would like to hear answered.
    I find it sad/odd that people ask to be thanked. How genuine is it when you have to ask? It's like forcing your kid to call Grandma, to thank her for the new underwear she sent for their birthday.

    My wife recorded the GB shows last week and we watched them tonight and he does ask some interesting questions.

    For example, he asks a simple question regarding this statement that Obama made about a year ago:



    I mean, is it wrong of GB to ask why Obama wants a "Civilian Defense Force" that would be "as well funded and trained as the military"? Why is this needed? It's a basic question and I would think Obama could answer this question.

    Or what about the Green Czar, Van Jones? Here is a snippet from his Wikipedia bio: He later got involved with Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM), a collective which "dreamed of a multiracial socialist utopia". He is quoted as saying: "I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th [1992], and then the verdicts came down on April 29th. By August, I was a communist." Now, I am assuming he has come out and said he is not a communist, but haven't heard nor seen that quote. Isn't this a fair question of someone who has been put inside the group of Obama advisors that did not have to go through any screening?

    He also brought up how MSNBC discussed "white people showing up with guns" at Obama's town hall meeting. They even showed a picture of the "white guy" with the gun on. However....had they showed the whole picture of this guy.....he was a BLACK dude. Yes....the racist white guy with the gun at the Obama town hall meeting was black. Just a minor (no pun intended) error on reporting.

    There were other questions that seemed reasonable...so I don't see the problem with asking questions to get "facts" straight. I think the problem is that many on the left would prefer these questions not be brought up. But seriously....wouldn't you like Obama to explain why we need a civilian defense force as well funded and trained as the military? Wouldn't you like an answer on this?

    I think they'd all rest easier once GB has been silenced.... isn't that the point of the boycott?

    I really don't see that happening to either of them. They are entertainers, thought provokers, attention whores... They make more money now than they ever would in politics.

    Dismissing them as fairy tale charactors just adds more fuel to the "I don't get answers, just name calling" Beck argument.

    THANK GOD! That guy's a dangerous, anti-american, lieing ******* of a simpleton who is spreading the culture of hate and division and only cares about people that look like him and not all Americans. May the rest of that networks sponsors leave too.

    Liberals are disgusting hyppocrites. Sure Foxnews is right-leaning but it has to be because EVERY other news network leans to the left, especially MSNBC. But will the liberals ever admit this? Of course not. They'll just start with their petty name-calling toward anyone who doesn't support their country-destroying political views. Talk about close-mindedness! Thank God for Glenn Beck and Rush and Hannity and O'Reilly for having the balls to point out and fight against all this Liberal BS that is slowly destroying this country. True Americans, they are.

    It's interesting that any blowhard and ask questions of the President if the President doesn't take the time to go on every show and refute it, it means the questions have merit. If the President does refute it, the talking pundit gets the attention of the nation as the President refutes his question.

    There is a Press corp. Glen can ask his question just like every other pundit or Political correspondent. He doesn't get the benefit of a interview just because he called the President names.

    Public figures and celebrities have learned that coming out to refute lies doesn't help. Those who want to believe the lies will continue to believe them regardless of what figure says and being a public figure ensures that the person pundit speaking the lies can't be sued for slander, defamation of character, lible, or anything else.

    What would be the point and why reward bad behavior by appearing on the show or making reference to the show in order to refute the misleading statements.

    I heard you the first time

    With the dramatic increase in Beck's viewers, you'd think the White House mouth pieces would be tripping over each other to call him out on all his "lies".
    Again, no facts, just name calling.

    Equally stupid? How. The professor pulled the race card first. The officer just stupid for letting the professor get him angry. The police officer reacted precisely the way the professor wanted him to do.

    Neither one of them would fit in with the LP. They've both been on record as being quite dismissive of it. That being said, this is comparable to someone saying that Michael Moore or Keith Olbermann are going to take over the DNC. It's an insulting scare tactic. I still can't believe that with these sorts of nonsensical statements that you're a mod.

    I think Toby nailed it.....palandri is using the scare tactic that liberals constantly say is so horrible. Scare tactic = bad (when done by Republicans)....Scare tactic = good (when done by democrats). If Republicans have organized groups = bad. If democrats have organized groups = good and patriotic. LOL

    I gotta say....the democrats organized groups have much better signs. Anyone notice the difference in the signs at these meetings? The liberal groups have these very nice, obviously mass printed signs while the Republicans have home made signs. If you used some commons sense it would be easy to say who is truly sending organized groups and who isn't.

    Show your support for Glenn Beck.

    Ask Sprint when they will be renewing their ads on Glenn Beck. Remind them that Color of Change, which sent them form letters demanding a boycott of Glenn Beck, is a radical group that engages in racist hate-speech. Tell them CoC's founder went to prison for inciting the 1992 L.A. Riots, and accused President Bush of giving troops orders to shoot blacks people after Hurricane Katrina. Tell them that you are a loyal Beck listener and they should not be taking sides in this political game.
    I support Glenn Beck. I am a Sprint employee and the company lives in fear of all race, religeon and environmental pressures. The media is to blame, it does not publically accuse the other cellular companies as it does sprint. Might it be that Sprint does not shove money under the table to the political or activist groups as the others do? hmmmm... Anyway, Sprint had no choice in this matter, as they would have been crucified by the media if the advertising had continued.

    That's a pretty strong statement against your employer.

    It's my opinion, that the companies who left Glenn Beck, didn't do it out of fear, but rather just decided their advertising dollars were better spent elsewhere. Just an executive decision made at a board meeting.

    Right... his ratings exploded, and the advertisers went elsewhere. How often does that happen?
